Obeying God is to believe and follow all the words of God in Bible as a little child. The words of God is law, transgressing the law is sin. Meaning of obedience can be found from experience of parents and teacher and elders and couple. Obedience is to do something of one's own will with pleasure, the obedient man believes his doing is beneficial to himself. 

Deeds of the words of God begin to practice easy things first, and try to practice difficult things by praying to God for realization of those.




<'Obeying God' of a condition God give the Holy Spirit>


 (Act5:29)But Peter answering, and the apostles, said, <God must be obeyed rather than men.>

 (Act5:30)The God of our fathers has raised up Jesus, whom *ye* have slain, having hanged on a cross.

 (Act5:31)Him has God exalted by his right hand as leader and saviour, to give repentance to Israel and remission of sins.

 (Act5:32)And *we* are [his] witnesses of these things, and <the Holy Spirit also, which God has given to those that obey him.>

1 An example of obedience


1-1 Obedience of Jesus Christ


(1jo3:5)And ye know that *he* has been manifested that he might take away our sins; and <in him(Jesus) sin is not.>


(Heb4:15)For we have not a high priest not able to sympathise with our infirmities, but tempted in all things in like manner, <sin apart>.


(1pe2:20)For what glory [is it], if sinning and being buffeted ye shall bear [it]? but if, doing good and suffering, ye shall bear [it], this is acceptable with God.

(1pe2:21)For to this have ye been called; for Christ also has suffered for you, leaving you a model that ye should follow in his steps:

(1pe2:22)who did <no sin>, neither was guile found in his mouth;


(Jon15:10)If ye shall keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love, as <I have kept my Father's commandments> and abide in his love.


(Jon8:55)But I know him, and <I keep his word>.


(Heb5:8)<though he were Son, he learned obedience from the things which he suffered;

(Heb5:9)and having been perfected, became to all them that obey him, author of eternal salvation;>


(Phi2:8)and having been found in figure as a man, humbled himself, <becoming obedient even unto death>, and [that the] death of [the] cross.



<sin>

[KJV](1 John 3:4) Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

[DBY](1 John 3:4) Every one that practises sin practises also lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.

[BBE](1 John 3:4) Everyone who is a sinner goes against the law, for sin is going against the law.



1-2 Obedience of king David 



(1ki9:4)And [as for] thee, if thou wilt walk before me, <as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, [and] wilt keep my statutes and mine ordinances>;

(1ki9:5)then will I establish the throne of thy kingdom over Israel for ever, as I promised to David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel.

(1ki9:6)[But] if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep my commandments, my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them;

(1ki9:7)then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and the house, which I have hallowed to my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a by word among all peoples;


(2ch7:17)And [as for] thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and mine ordinances;

(2ch7:18)then will I establish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man to rule over Israel.


(1ki3:14)And <if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments>, as thy father David did walk, then I will prolong thy days.


(1ki11:33)because they have forsaken me, and have worshipped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the god of the children of Ammon, and have not <walked in my ways, to do that which is right in my sight, and my statutes and mine ordinances>, as David his father.

(1ki11:34)But I will not take the whole kingdom out of his hand; for I will make him prince all the days of his life for David my servant's sake, whom I chose, <who kept my commandments and my statutes>;


(1ki11:38)And it shall be, if thou wilt hearken unto all that I command thee, and wilt walk in my ways, and do that which is right in my sight, <in keeping my statutes and my commandments>, as David my servant did, that I will be with thee, and build thee a lasting house, as I built for David, and will give Israel unto thee.


(1ki15:4)But for David's sake Jehovah his God gave him a lamp in Jerusalem, setting up his son after him, and establishing Jerusalem;

(1ki15:5)because <David did that which was right in the sight of Jehovah, and turned not aside from anything that he commanded him all the days of his life, except in the matter of Urijah the Hittite>.


(2ch7:17)And [as for] thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, <to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and mine ordinances>;

(2ch7:18)then will I establish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man to rule over Israel.


(2ch6:16)And now, Jehovah, God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that which thou hast promised him saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel, if only thy sons take heed to their way <to walk in my law>, as thou hast walked before me.


(2ki18:1)And it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea the son of Elah, king of Israel, that Hezekiah the son of Ahaz, king of Judah, began to reign.

(2ki18:2)He was twenty-five years old when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was Abi, daughter of Zechariah.

(2ki18:3)And <he did what was right in the sight of Jehovah, according to all that David his father had done.

(2ki18:4)He removed the high places, and broke the columns, and cut down the Asherahs, and broke in pieces the serpent of brass that Moses had made; for to those days the children of Israel burned incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan.

(2ki18:5)He trusted in Jehovah the God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor [among any] that were before him.

(2ki18:6)And he clave to Jehovah, and did not turn aside from following him, but kept his commandments, which Jehovah commanded Moses.>

(2ki18:7)And Jehovah was with him; he prospered whithersoever he went forth. And he rebelled against the king of Assyria, and served him not.


(1ki11:6)And Solomon did evil in the sight of Jehovah, and< followed not fully Jehovah, as David his father>.


(1ch18:14)And David reigned over all Israel, and <executed judgment and justice> to all his people.


(1ki15:3)And he walked in all the sins of his father, which he had done before him; and his heart was not perfect with Jehovah his God, as the heart of David his father.



1-3 Obedience of Joshua and Caleb


<The word of Jehovah>


(Deu9:23)And when Jehovah sent you from Kadesh-barnea, saying, Go up and take possession of the land which I have given you, ye rebelled against the word of Jehovah your God, and ye believed him not, nor hearkened to his voice.


(Deu1:20)And I said unto you, Ye are come unto the mountain of the Amorites, which Jehovah our God giveth us.

(Deu1:21)Behold, Jehovah thy God hath set the land before thee: go up, take possession, as Jehovah the God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be dismayed.



<Obedience of Joshua and Caleb>


(Num32:12)save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, and Joshua the son of Nun; for they have wholly followed Jehovah.


(Deu1:36)Except Caleb the son of Jephunneh, he shall see it, and to him will I give the land that he hath trodden upon, and to his children, because he hath wholly followed Jehovah.


(Num14:24)But my servant Caleb, because he hath another spirit in him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he came; and his seed shall possess it.




1-4 Obedience of Abraham


<The word of Jehovah>


(Gen12:1)And Jehovah had said to Abram, Go out of thy land, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, to the land that I will shew thee.

(Gen12:2)And I will make of thee a great nation, and bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing.

(Gen12:3)And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.



<Obedience of Abraham>


(Gen12:4)And Abram departed as Jehovah had said to him. And Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed out of Haran.


(Heb11:8)By faith Abraham, being called, obeyed to go out into the place which he was to receive for an inheritance, and went out, not knowing where he was going.



1-5 Obedience of parents and elders and couple


(Eph6:1)Children, obey your parents in [the] Lord, for this is just.


(1ti2:11)Let a woman learn in quietness in all subjection;

(1ti2:12)but I do not suffer a woman to teach nor to exercise authority over man, but to be in quietness;


(Eph6:5)Bondmen, obey masters according to flesh, with fear and trembling, in simplicity of your heart as to the Christ;




2 An example of disobedience


2-1 Disobedience of the people of Israel


1

<The word of Jehovah>


(Deu4:13)And he declared to you his covenant, which <he commanded you to do, the ten words>; and he wrote them on two tables of stone.

(Deu4:14)And <Jehovah commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and ordinances, that ye might do them in the land whither ye are passing over to possess it.>


(1ki2:1)And the days of David were at hand that he should die; and he enjoined Solomon his son saying,

(1ki2:2)I go the way of all the earth: be of good courage therefore, and be a man;

(1ki2:3)and <keep the charge of Jehovah thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his ordinances, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses>, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest and whithersoever thou turnest thyself;

(1ki2:4)that Jehovah may confirm his word which he spoke concerning me, saying, If thy sons take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee, said he, a man upon the throne of Israel.


(Deu5:29)Oh that there were such a heart in them, that <they would fear me, and keep all my commandments continually, that it might be well with them and with their sons for ever!>

(Deu5:30)Go, say unto them, Get you into your tents again.

(Deu5:31)But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and <I will speak unto thee all the commandments, and the statutes, and the ordinances, which thou shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it.

(Deu5:32)Take heed then to do as Jehovah your God hath commanded you: turn not aside to the right hand or to the left.

(Deu5:33)In all the way that Jehovah your God hath commanded you shall ye walk, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.


(Deu6:24)And <Jehovah commanded us to do all these statutes>, to fear Jehovah our God, for our good continually, that he might preserve us alive, as it is this day.

(Deu6:25)And <it shall be our righteousness if we take heed to do all these commandments before Jehovah our God, as he hath commanded us.>


(Lev20:8)And <ye shall observe my statutes>, and do them: I am Jehovah who hallow you.


(Lev22:31)And ye shall observe my commandments and do them: I am Jehovah.


(Deu11:32)And ye shall take heed to do all the statutes and ordinances which I set before you this day.


(Deu29:29)The hidden things belong to Jehovah our God; but the revealed ones are ours and our children's for ever, to do all the words of this law.



<Disobedience of the people of Israel>

(Jdg2:16)And Jehovah raised up judges, and they saved them out of the hand of those that spoiled them.

(Jdg2:17)But they did not even hearken to their judges, for they went a whoring after other gods, and bowed themselves to them; they turned quickly out of the way that their fathers had walked in, obeying the commandments of Jehovah; they did not so.

(Jdg2:18)And when Jehovah raised them up judges, then Jehovah was with the judge, and saved them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge; for it repented Jehovah because of their groanings by reason of them that oppressed them and crushed them.

(Jdg2:19)And it came to pass when the judge died, that <they turned back and corrupted themselves more than their fathers, in following other gods to serve them, and to bow down to them: they ceased not from their own doings, nor from their stubborn way.>

(Jdg2:20)And the anger of Jehovah was hot against Israel; and he said, <Because this nation hath transgressed my covenant which I commanded their fathers, and hath not hearkened unto my voice,>

(Jdg2:21)I also will not henceforth dispossess from before them any of the nations that Joshua left when he died;

(Jdg2:22)that through them I may prove Israel, <whether they will keep the way of Jehovah to walk therein, as their fathers did keep [it], or not.>

(Jdg2:23)Therefore Jehovah left those nations, without dispossessing them hastily, neither delivered he them into the hand of Joshua.

(Jdg3:1)And these are the nations that Jehovah left, to prove Israel by them, all that had not known all the wars of Canaan;

(Jdg3:2)only that the generations of the children of Israel might know war by learning it, at the least those who before had known nothing thereof:

(Jdg3:3)five lord ships of the Philistines, and all the Canaanites, and the Sidonians, and the Hivites that dwell on mount Lebanon; from mount Baal-Hermon unto the entering into Hamath.

(Jdg3:4)And they were to prove Israel by them, to know <whether they would obey the commandments of Jehovah, which he commanded their fathers by the hand of Moses.>

(Jdg3:5)And the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites: Hittites and Amorites and Perizzites and Hivites and Jebusites;

(Jdg3:6)and they took their daughters as wives, and gave their daughters to their sons, and served their gods.

(Jdg3:7)And the children of Israel <did evil in the sight of Jehovah>, and forgot Jehovah their God, and served the Baals and the Asherahs.

(Jdg3:8)And the anger of Jehovah was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hand of Chushan-rishathaim king of Mesopotamia; and the children of Israel served Chushan-rishathaim eight years.

(Jdg3:9)And the children of Israel cried to Jehovah; and Jehovah raised up a saviour to the children of Israel, who saved them, Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother.

(Jdg3:10)And the Spirit of Jehovah was upon him, and he judged Israel; and he went out to war, and Jehovah gave Chushan-rishathaim king of Syria into his hand; and his hand prevailed against Chushan-rishathaim.

(Jdg3:11)And the land had rest forty years; and Othniel the son of Kenaz died.

(Jdg3:12)And the children of Israel again <did evil in the sight of Jehovah>; and Jehovah strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel, because they did evil in the sight of Jehovah.

(Jdg3:13)And he gathered to him the children of Ammon and Amalek and went and smote Israel, and they took possession of the city of palm-trees.

(Jdg3:14)And the children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years.


(Jdg4:1)And the children of Israel again <did evil in the sight of Jehovah>; now Ehud was dead.

(Jdg4:2)And Jehovah sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor; and the captain of his army was Sisera, who dwelt in Harosheth-Goim.

(Jdg4:3)And the children of Israel cried to Jehovah; for he had nine hundred chariots of iron, and he mightily oppressed the children of Israel twenty years.


(Jdg6:1)And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of Jehovah; and Jehovah delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years.

(Jdg6:2)And the hand of Midian prevailed against Israel. Because of the Midianites the children of Israel made for themselves the dens that are in the mountains, and the caves, and the strongholds.

(Jdg6:3)And it came to pass when Israel sowed, that Midian came up, and Amalek, and the children of the east, and came up against them.

(Jdg6:4)And they encamped against them, and destroyed the produce of the land, until thou come to Gazah, and they left no sustenance in Israel, neither sheep, nor ox, nor ass.

(Jdg6:5)For they came up with their cattle and their tents, and they came as locusts for multitude; both they and their camels were without number; and they entered into the land to destroy it.

(Jdg6:6)And Israel was greatly impoverished because of Midian. And the children of Israel cried to Jehovah.


(Jdg13:1)And the children of Israel again <did evil in the sight of Jehovah>; and Jehovah gave them into the hand of the Philistines forty years.



2

<The word of Jehovah>


(Deu9:23)And when Jehovah sent you from Kadesh-barnea, saying, <Go up and take possession of the land which I have given you>,



(Deu1:20)And I said unto you, Ye are come unto the mountain of the Amorites, which Jehovah our God giveth us.

(Deu1:21)Behold, Jehovah thy God hath set the land before thee: <go up, take possession>, as Jehovah the God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be dismayed.


(Deu5:29)Oh that there were such a heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments continually, that it might be well with them and with their sons for ever!



<Disobedience of the people of Israel>


(Num14:33)And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear <your whoredoms>, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness.

(Num14:34)After the number of the days in which ye have searched out the land, forty days, each day for a year shall ye bear <your iniquities> forty years, and ye shall know mine estrangement [from you].

(Num14:35)I Jehovah have spoken; I will surely do it unto <all this evil assembly> which have gathered together against me! in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.


(Deu1:41)-- And ye answered and said unto me, We have sinned against Jehovah, we will go up and fight, according to all that Jehovah our God hath commanded us. And ye girded on every man his weapons of war, and ye would go presumptuously up the hill.


(Num32:10)And Jehovah's anger was kindled the same time, and he swore, saying,

(Num32:11)If the men that came up out of Egypt, from twenty years old and upward, shall see the land that I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob! for <they have not wholly followed me>;

(Num32:12)save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, and Joshua the son of Nun; for they have wholly followed Jehovah.

(Num32:13)And Jehovah's anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until the whole generation was consumed that <had done evil in the eyes of Jehovah>.


(Deu1:26)But ye would not go up, and <rebelled against the word of Jehovah your God>;

(Deu1:27)and ye <murmured> in your tents, and said, Because Jehovah hated us, he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us.

(Deu1:28)Whither shall we go up? Our brethren have made our hearts melt, saying, [They are] a people greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakim there.


(Num14:20)And Jehovah said, I have pardoned according to thy word.

(Num14:21)But as surely as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of Jehovah!

(Num14:22)for <all those men who have seen my glory, and my signs, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice>,

(Num14:23)shall in no wise see the land which I did swear unto their fathers: none of <them that despised me> shall see it.


(Deu9:23)And when Jehovah sent you from Kadesh-barnea, saying, Go up and take possession of the land which I have given you, ye <rebelled against the word of Jehovah> your God, and <ye believed him not, nor hearkened to his voice.>


(Psa106:24)And <they despised the pleasant land>; <they believed not his word>,

(Psa106:25)But <murmured> in their tents: <they hearkened not unto the voice of Jehovah>.


(Heb3:7)Wherefore, even as says the Holy Spirit, To-day if ye will hear his voice,

(Heb3:8)harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness;

(Heb3:9)where your fathers <tempted [me]>, by proving [me], and saw my works forty years.

(Heb3:10)Wherefore I was wroth with this generation, and said, They always <err in heart>; and *they* have not known my ways;

(Heb3:11)so I swore in my wrath, If they shall enter into my rest.

(Heb3:12)See, brethren, lest there be in any one of you <a wicked heart of unbelief>, in turning away from [the] living God.

(Heb3:13)But encourage yourselves each day, as long as it is called To-day, that none of you <be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin>.

(Heb3:14)For we are become companions of the Christ if indeed we hold the beginning of the assurance firm to the end;

(Heb3:15)in that it is said, To-day if ye will hear his voice, do not <harden your hearts>, as in the provocation;

(Heb3:16)(for who was it, <who, having heard, provoked>? but [was it] not all who came out of Egypt by Moses?

(Heb3:17)And with whom was he wroth forty years? [Was it] not with <those who had sinned>, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?

(Heb3:18)And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to <those who had not hearkened to the word>?

(Heb3:19)And we see that they could not enter in on account of unbelief;)




2-2 Disobedience of king David


(2sa11:1)And it came to pass, at the return of the year, at the time when kings go forth, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they laid waste the [land of the] children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David abode at Jerusalem.

(2sa11:2)And it came to pass at evening time that David arose from off his couch, and walked upon the roof of the king's house; and from the roof he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful;

(2sa11:3)and David sent and inquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Urijah the Hittite?

(2sa11:4)And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in to him, and he lay with her; and she had purified herself from her uncleanness; and she returned to her house.

(2sa11:5)And the woman conceived, and sent and told David, and said, I am with child.

(2sa11:6)And David sent to Joab [saying], Send me Urijah the Hittite. And Joab sent Urijah to David.

(2sa11:7)And when Urijah had come to him, David asked how Joab prospered, and how the people prospered, and how the war prospered.

(2sa11:8)And David said to Urijah, Go down to thy house and wash thy feet. And Urijah departed out of the king's house, and there followed him presents from the king.

(2sa11:9)And Urijah slept at the entrance of the king's house with all the servants of his lord, and went not down to his house.

(2sa11:10)And they had told David saying, Urijah did not go down to his house; and David said to Urijah, Art thou not come from a journey? why didst thou not go down to thy house?

(2sa11:11)And Urijah said to David, The ark, and Israel, and Judah abide in booths; and my lord Joab, and the servants of my lord, are encamped in the open fields: shall I then go into my house, to eat and to drink, and to lie with my wife? [As] thou livest, and [as] thy soul liveth, I will not do this thing.

(2sa11:12)And David said to Urijah, Abide here to-day also, and to-morrow I will let thee depart. And Urijah abode in Jerusalem that day and the morrow.

(2sa11:13)And David invited him, and he ate and drank before him; and he made him drunk. And in the evening he went out to lie on his couch with the servants of his lord, but did not go down to his house.

(2sa11:14)And it came to pass in the morning, that David wrote a letter to Joab, and sent it by Urijah.

(2sa11:15)And he wrote in the letter saying, Set Urijah in the front of the thickest fight, and withdraw from him, that he may be smitten and die.

(2sa11:16)And it came to pass as Joab watched the city, that he assigned Urijah to a place where he knew that the valiant men were.

(2sa11:17)And the men of the city went out and fought with Joab; and there fell some of the people, of the servants of David; and Urijah the Hittite died also.

(2sa11:18)Then Joab sent and told David all the matters of the war;

(2sa11:19)and charged the messenger, saying, When thou hast ended telling the matters of the war to the king,

(2sa11:20)and if so be that the king's wrath arise, and he say to thee, Why did ye go so near to the city to fight? did ye not know that they would shoot from the wall?

(2sa11:21)Who smote Abimelech the son of Jerubbesheth? did not a woman cast the upper stone of a handmill from the wall, that he died in Thebez? why did ye go near the wall? -- then say thou, Thy servant Urijah the Hittite is dead also.

(2sa11:22)And the messenger went; and he came and told David all that Joab had sent him for.

(2sa11:23)And the messenger said to David, The men prevailed against us, and came out against us into the field, and we were upon them as far as the entrance of the gate.

(2sa11:24)And the shooters shot from upon the wall against thy servants; and some of the king's servants are dead, and thy servant Urijah the Hittite is dead also.

(2sa11:25)Then David said to the messenger, Thus shalt thou say to Joab: Let not this thing displease thee, for the sword devours one as well as another: make thy battle strong against the city, and overthrow it; -- and encourage him.

(2sa11:26)And the wife of Urijah heard that Urijah her husband was dead, and she mourned for her husband.

(2sa11:27)And when the mourning was past, David sent and fetched her to his house, and she became his wife, and bore him a son. But <the thing that David had done was evil in the sight of Jehovah.>

(2sa12:1)And Jehovah sent Nathan to David. And he came to him, and said to him, There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor.

(2sa12:2)The rich had very many flocks and herds;

(2sa12:3)but the poor man had nothing at all, but one little ewe lamb which he had bought, and was nourishing; and it grew up with him, and together with his children: it ate of his morsel, and drank of his own cup, and slept in his bosom, and was to him as a daughter.

(2sa12:4)And there came a traveller to the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that had come to him; and he took the poor man's lamb, and dressed it for the man that had come to him.

(2sa12:5)Then David's anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As Jehovah liveth, the man that hath done this thing is worthy of death;

(2sa12:6)and he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity.

(2sa12:7)And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man! Thus saith Jehovah the God of Israel: I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul;

(2sa12:8)and I gave thee thy master's house, and thy master's wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if [that] had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things.

(2sa12:9)<Wherefore hast thou despised the word of Jehovah to do evil in his sight?> thou hast smitten Urijah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon.

(2sa12:10)Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thy house; because <thou hast despised me>, and hast taken the wife of Urijah the Hittite to be thy wife.

(2sa12:11)Thus saith Jehovah: Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun.

(2sa12:12)For thou didst [it] secretly; but I will do this thing before all Israel and before the sun.

(2sa12:13)And David said to Nathan, <I have sinned against Jehovah>. And Nathan said to David, Jehovah has also put away thy sin: thou shalt not die.

(2sa12:14)Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of Jehovah to blaspheme, even the child that is born to thee shall certainly die.

(1ki15:4)But for David's sake Jehovah his God gave him a lamp in Jerusalem, setting up his son after him, and establishing Jerusalem;

(1ki15:5)<because David did that which was right in the sight of Jehovah, and turned not aside from anything that he commanded him all the days of his life, except in the matter of Urijah the Hittite.>



2-3 Disobedience of king Hoshea


<The word of Jehovah>


(2ki17:12)and they served idols, as to which <Jehovah had said to them, Ye shall not do this thing.>

(2ki17:13)And Jehovah testified against Israel and against Judah, by all the prophets, all the seers, saying, <Turn from your evil ways, and keep my commandments, my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you through my servants the prophets.>



<Disobedience of king Hoshea>


(2ki17:1)In the twelfth year of Ahaz king of Judah, Hoshea the son of Elah began to reign in Samaria over Israel, for nine years.

(2ki17:2)And <he did evil in the sight of Jehovah>, but not as the kings of Israel that had been before him.

(2ki17:3)Against him came up Shalmaneser king of Assyria, and Hoshea became his servant, and tendered him presents.

(2ki17:4)But the king of Assyria found conspiracy in Hoshea; for he had sent messengers to So king of Egypt, and sent up no present to the king of Assyria as [he had done] from year to year. And the king of Assyria shut him up and bound him in prison.

(2ki17:5)And the king of Assyria overran the whole land, and went up against Samaria, and besieged it three years.

(2ki17:6)In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into Assyria, and placed them in Halah and by the Habor, the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes.

(2ki17:7)And so it was, because <the children of Israel had sinned against Jehovah their God>, who had brought them up out of the land of Egypt from under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and had feared other gods;

(2ki17:8)and <they walked in the statutes of the nations that Jehovah had dispossessed from before the children of Israel, and of the kings of Israel, which they had made.>

(2ki17:9)And <the children of Israel did secretly against Jehovah their God things that were not right>; and they built them high places in all their cities, from the watchmen's tower to the fortified city.

(2ki17:10)And they set them up columns and Asherahs on every high hill and under every green tree;

(2ki17:11)and there they burned incense on all the high places, as did the nations that Jehovah had carried away from before them, and <they wrought wicked things> to provoke Jehovah to anger;

(2ki17:12)and <they served idols, as to which Jehovah had said to them, Ye shall not do this thing.>

(2ki17:13)And Jehovah testified against Israel and against Judah, by all the prophets, all the seers, saying, Turn from <your evil ways>, and keep my commandments, my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you through my servants the prophets.

(2ki17:14)But <they would not hear>, and hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, <who did not believe in Jehovah their God>.

(2ki17:15)And <they rejected his statutes, and his covenant which he had made with their fathers, and his testimonies which he had testified unto them>; and they followed vanity and became vain, and [went] after the nations that were round about them, concerning whom <Jehovah had charged them that they should not do like them.>

(2ki17:16)And <they forsook all the commandments of Jehovah their God>, and made them molten images, two calves, and made an Asherah, and worshipped all the host of the heavens, and served Baal;

(2ki17:17)and they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to <do evil in the sight of Jehovah>, to provoke him to anger.

(2ki17:18)Therefore Jehovah was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight: there remained but the tribe of Judah only.



2-4 Disobedience of king Joash


(2ch24:15)And Jehoiada grew old and was full of days, and he died; he was a hundred and thirty years old when he died.

(2ch24:16)And they buried him in the city of David among the kings, because he had done good in Israel, both toward God and toward his house.

(2ch24:17)And after the death of Jehoiada the princes of Judah came and made obeisance to the king; then the king hearkened to them.

(2ch24:18)And they forsook the house of Jehovah the God of their fathers, and served the Asherahs and idols; and wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem for this their trespass.

(2ch24:19)And he sent prophets among them to bring them again to Jehovah, and they testified against them; but they would not give ear.

(2ch24:20)And the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest; and he stood up above the people and said unto them, Thus saith God: Wherefore do ye <transgress the commandments of Jehovah>? And ye cannot prosper; for <ye have forsaken Jehovah>, and he hath forsaken you.

(2ch24:21)And they conspired against him, and stoned him with stones at the command of the king in the court of the house of Jehovah.

(2ch24:22)And king Joash remembered not the kindness which Jehoiada his father had done to him, but slew his son. And when he died, he said, Jehovah see and require [it]!

(2ch24:23)And it came to pass at the end of the year [that] the army of Syria came up against him; and they entered into Judah and Jerusalem, and destroyed all the princes of the people from among the people, and sent all the spoil of them to the king at Damascus.

(2ch24:24)Truly with a small company of men came the army of the Syrians, but Jehovah delivered a very great army into their hand, because they had forsaken Jehovah the God of their fathers; and they executed judgment upon Joash.

(2ch24:25)And when they had departed from him(for they left him in great diseases), his own servants conspired against him for the blood of the sons of Jehoiada the priest, and slew him on his bed, and he died; and they buried him in the city of David, but they did not bury him in the sepulchres of the kings.




2-5 Disobedience of people of the times when Noah lived


(Gen6:5)And Jehovah saw that <the wickedness of Man was great on the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart only evil continually.>

(Gen6:6)And Jehovah repented that he had made Man on the earth, and it grieved him in his heart.

(Gen6:7)And Jehovah said, I will destroy Man, whom I have created, from the earth -- from man to cattle, to creeping things, and to fowl of the heavens; for I repent that I have made them.

(Gen6:8)But Noah found favour in the eyes of Jehovah.


(1pe3:19)in which also going he preached to the spirits [which are] in prison,

(1pe3:20)<heretofore disobedient>, when the longsuffering of God waited in [the] days of Noah while the ark was preparing, into which few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water:




2-6 Disobedience of king Saul


(1sa15:10)And the word of Jehovah came to Samuel, saying,

(1sa15:11)It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king; <for he is turned away from following me, and hath not fulfilled my words.> And Samuel was much grieved; and he cried to Jehovah all night.


(1sa15:22)And Samuel said, <Has Jehovah delight in burnt-offerings and sacrifices, As in hearkening to the voice of Jehovah? Behold, obedience is better than sacrifice, Attention than the fat of rams.>

(1sa15:23)For <rebellion> is [as] the sin of divination, And selfwill is [as] iniquity and idolatry. <Because thou hast rejected the word of Jehovah, He hath also rejected thee from being king.>

(1sa15:24)And Saul said to Samuel, <I have sinned, for I have transgressed the commandment of Jehovah, and thy words; for I feared the people, and hearkened to their voice.>


(1ch10:13)And Saul died for <his unfaithfulness which he committed against Jehovah, because of the word of Jehovah which he kept not>, and also for having inquired of the spirit of Python, asking counsel of it;

(1ch10:14)and he asked not counsel of Jehovah; therefore he slew him, and transferred the kingdom to David the son of Jesse.




2-7 Disobedience of Moses and Aaron


<The word of Jehovah>


(Num20:7)And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

(Num20:8)Take the staff, and gather the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes, and it shall give its water; and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock, and shalt give the assembly and their beasts drink.



<Disobedience of Moses and Aaron>


(Num20:23)And Jehovah spoke to Moses and to Aaron in mount Hor, on the border of the land of Edom, saying,

(Num20:24)Aaron shall be gathered unto his peoples; for he shall not enter into the land that I have given unto the children of Israel, because <ye rebelled against my commandment> at the waters of Meribah.


(Num27:12)And Jehovah said to Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land that I have given unto the children of Israel.

(Num27:13)And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy peoples, as Aaron thy brother was gathered,

(Num27:14)because <ye rebelled against my word> in the wilderness of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, as to hallowing me in the matter of the water before their eyes.(That is the water of Meribah at Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.)


(Deu32:48)And Jehovah spoke to Moses that same day, saying,

(Deu32:49)Go up into this mountain Abarim, mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, which is opposite Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession,

(Deu32:50)and die on the mountain whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto thy peoples, as Aaron thy brother died on mount Hor, and was gathered unto his peoples;

(Deu32:51)because <ye trespassed against me> among the children of Israel at the waters of Meribah-Kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye hallowed me not in the midst of the children of Israel.

(Deu32:52)For thou shalt see the land before [thee]; but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel.


(Psa106:32)And they moved him to wrath at the waters of Meribah, and it went ill with Moses on their account;

(Psa106:33)For <they provoked his spirit, so that he spoke unadvisedly with his lips.>


(Num20:12)And Jehovah said to Moses and to Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to hallow me before the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land that I have given them.



3 Obedience


(Mat4:4)But he answering said, It is written, <Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word which goes out through God's mouth.>


(Deu8:2)And thou shalt remember all the way which Jehovah thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thy heart, <whether thou wouldest keep his commandments or not.>

(Deu8:3)And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with the manna, which thou hadst not known, and which thy fathers knew not; that he might make thee know that <man doth not live by bread alone, but by everything that goeth out of the mouth of Jehovah doth man live.>


(Deu32:45)And when Moses had ended speaking all these words to all Israel,

(Deu32:46)he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words that I testify among you this day, which <ye shall command your children to take heed to do, all the words of this law.>

(Deu32:47)<For it is no vain word for you, but it is your life,> and through this word ye shall prolong your days on the land whereunto ye pass over the Jordan to possess it.


(Deu30:15)See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil,

(Deu30:16)in that I command thee this day to love Jehovah thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his ordinances, that thou mayest live and multiply, and that Jehovah thy God may bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.


(Deu11:26)See, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse:

(Deu11:27)a blessing, if ye obey the commandments of Jehovah your God, which I command you this day;

(Deu11:28)and a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of Jehovah your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods which ye have not known.


(Neh9:29)And thou testifiedst against them, that thou mightest bring them again unto thy law; but they dealt proudly, and hearkened not unto thy commandments, but sinned against thine ordinances(which if a <man> do, he shall live in them); and they withdrew the shoulder, and hardened their neck, and would not hear.


(Lev18:5)And ye shall observe my statutes and my judgments, by which the <man> that doeth them shall live: I am Jehovah.


(Eze20:11)And I gave them my statutes, and made known unto them mine ordinances, which if a <man> do, he shall live by them.

(Eze20:12)And I also gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I [am] Jehovah that hallow them.


(Pro28:9)<He> that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination.

(잠 28:9) <사람>이 귀를 돌이키고 율법을 듣지 아니하면 그의 기도도 가증하니라


(Jam1:25)<But *he* that fixes his view on [the] perfect law, that of liberty, and abides in [it], being not a forgetful hearer but a doer of [the] work,> <*he*> shall be blessed in his doing.


(Rom2:13)<(for not the hearers of the law [are] just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.>


(Rom2:21)thou then that teachest another, dost thou not teach thyself? thou that preachest not to steal, dost thou steal?

(Rom2:22)thou that sayest [man should] not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?

(Rom2:23)thou who boastest in law, <dost thou by transgression of the law dishonour God?>

(Rom2:24)For the name of God is blasphemed on your account among the nations, according as it is written.


(Gal2:17)Now if in seeking to be justified in Christ we also have been found sinners, <then [is] Christ minister of sin? Far be the thought.>


(Rom6:15)What then? <should we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Far be the thought.>

(Rom6:16)Know ye not that to whom ye yield yourselves bondmen for obedience, ye are bondmen to him whom ye obey, whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?


(Jon17:6)I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou gavest me out of the world. They were thine, and thou gavest them me, and <they have kept thy word.>


(Luk8:15)But that in the good ground, these are <they who in an honest and good heart, having heard the word keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.>


(Luk11:42)But woe unto you, Pharisees, for ye pay tithes of mint and rue and every herb, and pass by the judgment and the love of God: <these ye ought to have done, and not have left those aside.>


(Mat23:23)Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, for ye pay tithes of mint and anise and cummin, and ye have left aside the weightier matters of the law, judgment and mercy and faith: <these ye ought to have done and not have left those aside.>


(1pe2:21)For to this have ye been called; for Christ also has suffered for you, leaving you a model that ye should follow in his steps:

(1pe2:22)<who did no sin>, neither was guile found in his mouth;


(1jo2:6)He that says he abides in him ought, <even as *he* walked, himself also [so] to walk.>


(Rev14:12)Here is the endurance of the saints, <who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.>


(Jam2:26)For <as the body without a spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.>


(Lev18:1)And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

(Lev18:2)Speak unto <the children of Israel>, and say unto them, I am Jehovah your God.

(Lev18:3)After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do; and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do; neither shall ye walk in their customs.

(Lev18:4)Mine ordinances shall ye do and my statutes shall ye observe to walk therein: I am Jehovah your God.

(Lev18:5)And <ye shall observe my statutes and my judgments, by which <<the man>> that doeth them shall live>: I am Jehovah.

(Lev18:6)No one shall approach to any that is his near relation, to uncover his nakedness: I am Jehovah.

(Lev18:7)The nakedness of thy father, and the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother: thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.

(Lev18:8)The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father's nakedness.

(Lev18:9)The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, born at home, or born abroad -- their nakedness shalt thou not uncover.

(Lev18:10)The nakedness of thy son's daughter, or of thy daughter's daughter -- their nakedness shalt thou not uncover; for theirs is thy nakedness.

(Lev18:11)The nakedness of thy father's wife's daughter, begotten of thy father: she is thy sister: thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.

(Lev18:12)The nakedness of thy father's sister shalt thou not uncover: she is thy father's near relation.

(Lev18:13)The nakedness of thy mother's sister shalt thou not uncover; for she is thy mother's near relation.

(Lev18:14)The nakedness of thy father's brother shalt thou not uncover; thou shalt not approach his wife: she is thine aunt.

(Lev18:15)The nakedness of thy daughter-in-law shalt thou not uncover: she is thy son's wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.

(Lev18:16)The nakedness of thy brother's wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy brother's nakedness.

(Lev18:17)The nakedness of a woman and her daughter shalt thou not uncover; thou shalt not take her son's daughter, nor her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness: they are her near relations: it is <wickedness>.

(Lev18:18)And thou shalt not take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness beside her, during her life.

(Lev18:19)And thou shalt not approach a woman in the separation of her uncleanness to uncover her nakedness.

(Lev18:20)And thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour's wife, to become unclean with her.

(Lev18:21)And thou shalt not give of thy seed to let them pass through [the fire] to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am Jehovah.

(Lev18:22)And thou shalt not lie with mankind as one lieth with a woman: it is <an abomination>.

(Lev18:23)And thou shalt lie with no beast to become unclean therewith; and a woman shall not stand before a beast to lie down with it: it is <confusion>.

(Lev18:24)Make not yourselves unclean in any of these things; for in all these have the nations which I am casting out before you made themselves unclean.

(Lev18:25)And the land hath become unclean; and I visit <the iniquity> thereof upon it, and the land vomiteth out its inhabitants.

(Lev18:26)But *ye* shall observe my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of <all these abominations>: the home-born, and the stranger that sojourneth among you;

(Lev18:27)(for all these abominations have the men of the land done, who were before you, and the land hath been made unclean);

(Lev18:28)that the land vomit you not out, when ye make it unclean, as it vomited out the nation that was before you.

(Lev18:29)For whoever committeth any of these abominations, ... the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.

(Lev18:30)And ye shall observe my charge, that ye commit not [any] of <the abominable customs> which were committed before you; and ye shall not make yourselves unclean therein: I am Jehovah your God.


(Lev20:1)And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

(Lev20:2)Thou shalt say also to <the children of Israel>, Every one of the children of Israel, or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel, that giveth of his seed unto Molech, shall certainly be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

(Lev20:3)And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, so as to make my sanctuary unclean, and to profane my holy name.

(Lev20:4)And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from that man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, that they kill him not,

(Lev20:5)then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.

(Lev20:6)-- And the soul that turneth unto necromancers and unto soothsayers, to go a whoring after them, I will set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

(Lev20:7)Hallow yourselves therefore, and be holy; for I am Jehovah your God.

(Lev20:8)And <ye shall observe my statutes>, and do them: I am Jehovah who hallow you.

(Lev20:9)Whatever man revileth his father and his mother shall certainly be put to death: he hath reviled his father and his mother; his blood is upon him.

(Lev20:10)And a man that committeth adultery with a man's wife, who committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, -- the adulterer and the adulteress shall certainly be put to death.

(Lev20:11)And a man that lieth with his father's wife hath uncovered his father's nakedness: both of them shall certainly be put to death; their blood is upon them.

(Lev20:12)And if a man lie with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall certainly be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood is upon them.

(Lev20:13)And if a man lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall certainly be put to death; their blood is upon them.

(Lev20:14)And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is <infamy>: they shall burn him and them with fire, that there be no infamy among you.

(Lev20:15)And if a man lie with a beast for copulation, he shall certainly be put to death; and ye shall kill the beast.

(Lev20:16)And if a woman approach unto any beast to gender therewith, thou shalt kill the woman and the beast: they shall certainly be put to death; their blood is upon them.

(Lev20:17)And if a man take his sister, his father's daughter, or his mother's daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness, that is a disgrace; and they shall be cut off before the eyes of the children of their people: he hath uncovered his sister's nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity.

(Lev20:18)And if a man shall lie with a woman in her infirmity, and uncover her nakedness, her flux doth he lay bare, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood; and both of them shall be cut off from among their people.

(Lev20:19)And the nakedness of thy mother's sister, and of thy father's sister shalt thou not uncover; for he hath laid naked his near relation: they shall bear their iniquity.

(Lev20:20)And if a man lie with his aunt, he hath uncovered his uncle's nakedness: their sin shall they bear: they shall die childless.

(Lev20:21)And if a man take his brother's wife, it is an unclean thing: he hath uncovered his brother's nakedness: they shall be childless.

(Lev20:22)And <ye shall observe all my statutes>, and all mine ordinances, and do them, that the land whither I bring you to dwell therein vomit you not out.

(Lev20:23)And ye shall not walk in the customs of the nation which I am casting out before you; for all these things have they done, and they became an abomination to me.


(Rom2:6)who shall render to each according to his works:

(Rom2:7)to them who, in patient continuance of <good works>, seek for glory and honour and incorruptibility, life eternal.

(Rom2:8)But to those that are contentious, and are disobedient to <the truth>, but obey <unrighteousness>, [there shall be] wrath and indignation,

(Rom2:9)tribulation and distress, on every soul of man that works <evil>, both of Jew first, and of Greek;

(Rom2:10)but glory and honour and peace to every one that works <good>, both to Jew first and to Greek:

(Rom2:11)for there is no acceptance of persons with God.

(Rom2:12)For as many as have sinned without law shall perish also without law; and as many as have sinned under law shall be judged by law,

(Rom2:13)<(for not the hearers of the law [are] just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.>

(Rom2:14)For when [those of the] nations, which have no law, practise by nature the things of the law, these, having no law, are a law to themselves;

(Rom2:15)who shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts accusing or else excusing themselves between themselves;)

(Rom2:16)in [the] day when God shall judge the secrets of men, according to my glad tidings, by Jesus Christ.

(Rom2:17)But if *thou* art named a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast in God,

(Rom2:18)and knowest the will, and discerningly approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law;

(Rom2:19)and hast confidence that thou thyself art a leader of the blind, a light of those who [are] in darkness,

(Rom2:20)an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, having the form of knowledge and of truth in the law:

(Rom2:21)thou then that teachest another, dost thou not teach thyself? thou that preachest not to steal, dost thou steal?

(Rom2:22)thou that sayest [man should] not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?

(Rom2:23)thou who boastest in law, <dost thou by transgression of the law dishonour God?>

(Rom2:24)For the name of God is blasphemed on your account among the nations, according as it is written.

(Rom2:25)For circumcision indeed profits if thou keep [the] law; but if thou be a law-transgressor, thy circumcision is become uncircumcision.

(Rom2:26)If therefore the uncircumcision keep the requirements of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be reckoned for circumcision,

(Rom2:27)and uncircumcision by nature, <fulfilling the law, judge thee>, who, with letter and circumcision, [art] a law-transgressor?

(Rom2:28)For he is not a Jew who [is] one outwardly, neither that circumcision which is outward in flesh;

(Rom2:29)but he [is] a Jew [who is so] inwardly; and <circumcision, of the heart>, in spirit, not in letter; whose praise [is] not of men, but of God.


(Heb3:18)And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to <those who had not hearkened to the word>?

(Heb3:19)And we see that they could not enter in on account of unbelief;)


(Heb4:2)<For indeed we have had glad tidings presented to us, even as they also; but the word of the report did not profit *them*, not being mixed with faith in those who heard.>

(Heb4:3)For we enter into the rest who have believed; as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, If they shall enter into my rest; although the works had been completed from [the] foundation of [the] world.

(Heb4:4)For he has said somewhere of the seventh [day] thus, And God rested on the seventh day from all his works:

(Heb4:5)and in this again, If they shall enter into my rest.

(Heb4:6)Seeing therefore it remains that some enter into it, and <those who first received the glad tidings did not enter in on account of not hearkening to the word>,


(Rom6:13)Neither yield your members instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but yield yourselves to God as alive from among [the] dead, and your members instruments of righteousness to God.

(Rom6:14)For sin shall not have dominion over *you*, for ye are not under law but under grace.

(Rom6:15)What then? <should we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Far be the thought.>

(Rom6:16)Know ye not that to whom ye yield yourselves bondmen for obedience, ye are bondmen to him whom ye obey, <whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness>?

(Rom6:17)But thanks [be] to God, that <ye were bondmen of sin, but have obeyed from the heart the form of teaching into which ye were instructed.

(Rom6:18)Now, having got your freedom from sin, ye have become bondmen to righteousness.>

(Rom6:19)I speak humanly on account of the weakness of your flesh. For even as ye have yielded your members in bondage to uncleanness and to lawlessness unto lawlessness, so now yield your members in bondage to righteousness unto holiness.

(Rom6:20)For when ye were bondmen of sin ye were free from righteousness.

(Rom6:21)What fruit therefore had ye *then* in the things of which ye are *now* ashamed? for the end of *them* [is] death.

(Rom6:22)But *now*, having got your freedom from sin, and <having become bondmen to God>, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end eternal life.


(1pe2:8)and a stone of stumbling and rock of offence; [who] stumble at  <the word, being disobedient > to which also they have been appointed.

(1pe2:9)But *ye* [are] a chosen race, a kingly priesthood, a holy nation, a people for a possession, that ye might set forth the excellencies of him who has called you out of darkness to his wonderful light;


(Exo19:5)And now, if ye will hearken to my voice indeed and <keep my covenant>, then shall ye be my own possession out of all the peoples -- for all the earth is mine --

(Exo19:6)and ye shall be to me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak to the children of Israel.


(Deu28:1)And it shall come to pass, <if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of Jehovah thy God, to take heed to do all his commandments which I command thee this day>, that Jehovah thy God will set thee supreme above all nations of the earth;

(Deu28:2)and all these blessings shall come on thee and overtake thee, <if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of Jehovah thy God>.

(Deu28:3)Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.

(Deu28:4)Blessed shall be the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the offspring of thy kine, and the increase of thy sheep.

(Deu28:5)Blessed shall be thy basket and thy kneading-trough.

(Deu28:6)Blessed shalt thou be in thy coming in, and blessed shalt thou be in thy going out.


(Deu30:9)And Jehovah thy God will make thee abound in every work of thy hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, for good; for Jehovah will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers;

(Deu30:10)<if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of Jehovah thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law; if thou turn to Jehovah thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul.>



(Jer44:20)And Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the men, and to the women, and to all the people that had given him that answer, saying,

(Jer44:21)Is it not the incense that ye burned in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, ye and your fathers, your kings and your princes and the people of the land, that Jehovah remembered, and that came into his mind?

(Jer44:22)And Jehovah could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, [and] because of the abominations that ye had committed; and your land is become a waste, and an astonishment, and a curse, without inhabitant, as at this day.

(Jer44:23)Because ye have burned incense, and <because ye have sinned against Jehovah, and have not hearkened unto the voice of Jehovah, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies>; therefore this evil hath come upon you, as at this day.


(Rom10:9)that <if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised him from among [the] dead, thou shalt be saved.>


(Jon13:20)Verily, verily, I say to you, He who receives whomsoever I shall send receives me; and he that receives me receives him who has sent me.

(Eze14:15)If I cause evil beasts to pass through the land, and they bereave it, and it become a desolation, so that no one passeth through because of the beasts;

(Eze14:16)-- though these three men should be in it, [as] I live, saith the Lord Jehovah, they should deliver neither sons nor daughters: they only should be delivered, and the land should be a desolation.

(Eze14:17)Or [if] I bring the sword upon that land, and say, Sword, go through the land, so that I cut off man and beast from it,

(Eze14:18)and these three men should be in it, [as] I live, saith the Lord Jehovah, they should deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they only themselves should be delivered.

(Eze14:19)Or [if] I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out my fury upon it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast,

(2ch28:1)Ahaz was twenty years old when he began to reign; and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. And he did not what was right in the sight of Jehovah, like David his father,

(2ch28:2)but walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, and even made molten images for the Baals;

(2ch28:3)and he burned incense in the valley of the son of Hinnom, and burned his sons in the fire, according to the abominations of the nations that Jehovah had dispossessed from before the children of Israel.
