25 You could not possibly do such a thing: to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. You could not possibly do that! Won’t the Judge of all the earth do what is just?”
Genesis 18:25 (HCSB)
1 Wisdom has built her house; she has carved out her seven pillars.
2 She has prepared her meat; she has mixed her wine; she has also set her table.
3 She has sent out her female servants; she calls out from the highest points of the city:
4 “Whoever is inexperienced, enter here!” To the one who lacks sense, she says,
5 “Come, eat my bread, and drink the wine I have mixed.
6 Leave inexperience behind, and you will live; pursue the way of understanding.
7 The one who corrects a mocker will bring dishonor on himself; the one who rebukes a wicked man will get hurt.
8 Don’t rebuke a mocker, or he will hate you; rebuke a wise man, and he will love you.
9 Instruct a wise man, and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man, and he will learn more.
10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
11 For by Wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life.
12 If you are wise, you are wise for your own benefit; if you mock, you alone will bear the consequences.”
13 The woman Folly is rowdy; she is gullible and knows nothing.
14 She sits by the doorway of her house, on a seat at the highest point of the city,
15 calling to those who pass by, who go straight ahead on their paths:
16 “Whoever is inexperienced, enter here!” To the one who lacks sense, she says,
17 “Stolen water is sweet, and bread eaten secretly is tasty!”
18 But he doesn’t know that the departed spirits are there, that her guests are in the depths of Sheol.
Proverbs 9:1-18 (HCSB)
2 I called to the Lord in my distress, and He answered me. I cried out for help in the belly of Sheol; You heard my voice.
Jonah 2:2 (HCSB)
8 The pure in heart are blessed, for they will see God.
Matthew 5:8 (HCSB)
12 So then, brothers, we are not obligated to the flesh to live according to the flesh,
13 for if you live according to the flesh, you are going to die. But if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
14 All those led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons.
15 For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father!”
16 The Spirit Himself testifies together with our spirit that we are God’s children,
17 and if children, also heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ—seeing that we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.
Romans 8:12-17 (HCSB)
