Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are #defiled
and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and #conscience
Bible KJV - #Titus1
:15 I know it is so of a truth: but how should man be #just
with God? If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand.
He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened himself against him, and hath #prospered
? If God will not withdraw his anger, the proud helpers do stoop under him.
How much less shall I answer him, and choose out my words to reason with him?
Whom, though I were #righteous
, yet would I not answer, but I would make #supplication
to my judge. If I #justify
myself, mine own mouth shall #condemn
me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.
Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my #soul
: I would despise my #life
. This is one thing, therefore I said it, He destroyeth the perfect and the wicked.
If the scourge slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the innocent.
Bible KJV - #Job9
Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?
If thy #children
have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their #transgression
If thou wouldest seek unto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty;
If thou wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.
Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase. For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers: (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:) Can the rush grow up without mire? can the flag grow without water?
Whilst it is yet in his greenness, and not cut down, it withereth before any other herb.
So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite’s hope shall perish: Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will he help the evil doers:
Bible KJV - #Job8
