"This is what the Lord says – your Redeemer, Who formed you in the womb: I am the Lord , Who has made all things."
"There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one. Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit. The poison of vipers is on their lips. Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness. Their feet are swift to shed blood; ruin and misery mark their ways, and the way of peace they do not know. There is no fear of God before their eyes."
"All who hate Me, love death."
"They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons. They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed . . . and the land was desecrated by their blood. They defiled themselves by what they did; by their deeds they prostituted themselves. Therefore the Lord was angry with His people and abhorred His inheritance. He handed them over . . . and their foes ruled over them. Their enemies oppressed them and subjected them to their power."
"You shall not murder."
"There are six things the Lord hates, seven things that are detestable to Him; haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood . . ."
"Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man."
". . . This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live."
"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute . . . defend the rights of the poor and needy."
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you . . ."
". . . it pleased God, Who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, to reveal His Son in me . . ."
"Listen to me, O islands, and pay attention, you peoples from afar. The Lord called me from the womb; from the body of my mother He named me . . . the Lord, Who formed me from the womb to be His servant."
"Whoever welcomes a little child like this in My Name welcomes Me."
"See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of My Father in heaven."
"Things that cause people to sin are bound to come, but woe to that person through whom they come. It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than that he should offend one of these little ones, So watch yourselves. If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him."
"Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people."
"The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God."
"Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, ‘But we knew nothing about this’, does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not He who guards your life know it? Will not He repay each one according to what he has done?"
"If My People who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
2 Chronicles 7:14
"Repent then and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord."
"Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord . . ."
"Unless you repent, you too will all perish."
"Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts . . . let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!"
Amos 5:15, 24
