The fear of Yahweh is to hate evil. I hate pride, arrogance, the evil way, and the perverse mouth.
Don’t be wise in your own eyes. Fear Yahweh, and depart from evil.
It will be health to your body, and nourishment to your bones.
You who love Yahweh, hate evil! He preserves the souls of his saints. He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.
Establish my footsteps in your word. Don’t let any iniquity have dominion over me.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Amen.’
20 He said, “That which proceeds out of the man, that defiles the man.
21 For from within, out of the hearts of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, sexual sins, murders, thefts,
22 covetings, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, and foolishness.
23 All these evil things come from within and defile the man.”
Yahweh will keep you from all evil. He will keep your soul.
Yahweh will keep your going out and your coming in, from this time forward, and forever more.
See that no one returns evil for evil to anyone, but always follow after that which is good for one another and for all.
As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to save many people alive, as is happening today.
For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all wrongs.
And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and will preserve me for his heavenly Kingdom. To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
I pray not that you would take them from the world, but that you would keep them from the evil one.
Therefore, putting away all filthiness and overflowing of wickedness, receive with humility the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness hasn’t overcome it.
Don’t be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Test all things, and hold firmly that which is good.
Abstain from every form of evil.
Wash yourselves. Make yourself clean. Put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes. Cease to do evil.
Depart from evil, and do good. Seek peace, and pursue it.
“Be angry, and don’t sin.” Don’t let the sun go down on your wrath,
and don’t give place to the devil.
Now I beg you, brothers, look out for those who are causing the divisions and occasions of stumbling, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and turn away from them.
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
“Thus has Yahweh of Armies spoken, saying, ‘Execute true judgment, and show kindness and compassion every man to his brother.
Don’t oppress the widow, the fatherless, the foreigner, nor the poor; and let none of you devise evil against his brother in your heart.’
Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor that which is evil. Cling to that which is good.
