Proverbs 8:22
+ 22 “Jehovah himself produced me* as the beginning* of his way,+ the earliest of his achievements of long ago.+ 23 From time indefinite I was installed,+ from the start,* from times earlier than the earth.+ 24 When there were no watery deeps* I was brought forth as with labor pains,+ when there were no springs heavily charged with water. 25 Before the mountains themselves had been settled down,+ ahead of the hills, I was brought forth as with labor pains, 26 when as yet he had not made the earth+ and the open spaces and the first part of the dust masses of the productive land.*+ 27 When he prepared the heavens I was there;+ when he decreed a circle upon the face of the watery deep,+ 28 when he made firm the cloud masses above,+ when he caused the fountains of the watery deep to be strong,+ 29 when he set for the sea his decree that the waters themselves should not pass beyond his order,*+ when he decreed the foundations of the earth,+ 30 then I came to be beside him as a master worker,*+ and I came to be the one he* was specially fond+ of day by day, I being glad before him all the time,+ 31 being glad at the productive land* of his earth,+ and the things I was fond of were with the sons of men.*+

. Matthew 27:15
15 Now from festival to festival, it was the custom of the governor to release a prisoner to the crowd, whomever they wanted.+ 16 Just at that time they were holding a notorious prisoner called Bar·ab′bas. 17 So when they were gathered together, Pilate said to them:“Which one do you want me to release to you, Bar·ab′bas or Jesus the so-called Christ?” 18 For Pilate was aware that out of envy they had handed him over. 19 Moreover, while he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent a message to him, saying:“Have nothing to do with that righteous man, for I suffered a lot today in a dream because of him.” 20 But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowds to ask for Bar·ab′bas,+ but to have Jesus put to death.+ 21 In response the governor said to them:“Which of the two do you want me to release to you?” They said:“Bar·ab′bas.” 22 Pilate said to them:“What, then, should I do with Jesus the so-called Christ?” They all said:“To the stake with him!”*+ 23 He said:“Why? What bad thing did he do?” Still they kept shouting out all the more:“To the stake with him!”+
24 Seeing that it did no good but, rather, an uproar was arising, Pilate took water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying:“I am innocent of the blood of this man. You yourselves must see to it.” 25 At that all the people said in answer:“Let his blood come upon us and upon our children.”+

John 5:19
19 Therefore, in response Jesus said to them:“Most truly I say to you, the Son cannot do a single thing of his own initiative, but only what he sees the Father doing.+ For whatever things that One does, these things the Son does also in like manner. 20 For the Father has affection for the Son+ and shows him all the things he himself does, and he will show him works greater than these, so that you may marvel.+ 21 For just as the Father raises the dead up and makes them alive,+ so the Son also makes alive whomever he wants to.+ 22 For the Father judges no one at all, but he has entrusted all the judging to the Son,+ 23 so that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.+ 24 Most truly I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes the One who sent me has everlasting life,+ and he does not come into judgment but has passed over from death to life.+
25 “Most truly I say to you, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who have paid attention will live. 26 For just as the Father has life in himself,*+ so he has granted also to the Son to have life in himself.+ 27 And he has given him authority to do judging,+ because he is the Son of man.+ 28 Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice+ 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.+ 30 I cannot do a single thing of my own initiative. Just as I hear, I judge, and my judgment is righteous+ because I seek, not my own will, but the will of him who sent me.+

Numbers 35:30
30 “‘Whoever kills a person* should be put to death as a murderer+ on the testimony* of witnesses;+ but no one* will be put to death on the testimony of just one witness. 31 You must take no ransom for the life* of a murderer who is deserving to die, for he should be put to death without fail.

James 2:10
10 For if anyone obeys all the Law but makes a false step in one point, he has become an offender against all of it.+ 11 For the one who said,“You must not commit adultery,”+ also said,“You must not murder.”+ If, now, you do not commit adultery but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of law.

1 Corinthians 11:14? 14 Does not nature itself teach you that long hair is a dishonor to a man, 15 but if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her? For her hair is given to her instead of a covering. 16 However, if anyone wants to argue in favor of some other custom, we have no other, nor do the congregations of God.

30 That is why many among you are weak and sick, and quite a few are sleeping in death.

34 But as for the remaining matters, I will put them in order when I get there. Truly-Amen.

Ezekiel 3:17-19:
17 “Son of man, I have appointed you as a watchman to the house of Israel;+ and when you hear a word from my mouth, you must warn them from me.+ 18 When I say to someone wicked,‘You will surely die,’ but you do not warn him, and you fail to speak in order to warn the wicked one to turn from his wicked course so that he may stay alive,+ he will die for his error because he is wicked,+ but I will ask his blood back from you.*+ 19 But if you warn someone wicked and he does not turn back from his wickedness and from his wicked course, he will die for his error, but you will certainly save your own life.*+

Genesis 9:11-17-Rainbow Covenant
.+ 11 Yes, I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all flesh* be destroyed by the waters of a flood, and never again will a flood bring the earth to ruin.”+
12 And God added:“This is the sign of the covenant that I am making between me and you and every living creature* that is with you, for all future generations. 13 I put my rainbow in the cloud, and it will serve as a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 Whenever I bring a cloud over the earth, then the rainbow will certainly appear in the cloud. 15 And I will certainly remember my covenant that I made between me and you and every living creature of every kind;* and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all flesh.+ 16 And the rainbow will occur in the cloud, and I will certainly see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of every kind* on the earth.”
17 God repeated to Noah:“This is the sign of the covenant that I establish between me and all flesh that is on the earth.”+

Acts 9:36-42 Dorcas Resurrected http://www.jw.org/en/
36 Now there was in Jop′pa a disciple named Tab′i·tha, which means, when translated,“Dor′cas. ”* She abounded in good deeds and gifts of mercy that she was making. 37 But in those days she fell sick and died. So they bathed her and laid her in an upper room. 38 Since Lyd′da was near Jop′pa, when the disciples heard that Peter was in that city, they sent two men to him to urge him:“Please come to us without delay.” 39 At that Peter got up and went with them. And when he arrived, they led him up into the upper room; and all the widows presented themselves to him, weeping and showing many garments and robes* that Dor′cas had made while she was with them. 40 Peter then put everyone outside,+ and kneeling down, he prayed. Then turning toward the body, he said:“Tab′i·tha, rise!” She opened her eyes, and as she caught sight of Peter, she sat up.+ 41 Giving her his hand, he raised her up, and he called the holy ones and the widows and presented her alive.+ 42 This became known throughout all Jop′pa, and many became believers in the Lord

John 11:38-44 Lazarus Resurrected
38 Then Jesus, after groaning again within himself, came to the tomb.* It was, in fact, a cave, and a stone was lying against it. 39 Jesus said:“Take the stone away.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to him:“Lord, by now he must smell, for it has been four days.” 40 Jesus said to her:“Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?”+ 41 So they took the stone away. Then Jesus raised his eyes heavenward+ and said:“Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 True, I knew that you always hear me; but I spoke on account of the crowd standing around, so that they may believe that you sent me.”+ 43 When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice:“Laz′a·rus, come out!”+ 44 The man who had been dead came out with his feet and hands bound with wrappings, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them:“Free him and let him go.”

1 Peter 4:18
18 “And if the righteous man is being saved with difficulty, what will happen to the ungodly man and the sinner?”+

Ecclesiastes 9:5.
+ 5 For the living know* that they will die,+ but the dead know nothing at all,+ nor do they have any more reward,* because all memory of them is forgotten.+ 6 Also, their love and their hate and their jealousy have already perished, and they no longer have any share in what is done under the sun.+

Revelation 21:1-8
21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth;+ for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away,+ and the sea+ is no more. 2 I also saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God+ and prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.+ 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say:“Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them.+ 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,+ and death will be no more,+ neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.+ The former things have passed away.”
5 And the One seated on the throne+ said:“Look! I am making all things new.”+ Also he says:“Write, for these words are faithful* and true.” 6 And he said to me:“They have come to pass! I am the Al′pha and the O·me′ga,* the beginning and the end.+ To anyone thirsting I will give from the spring* of the water of life free.*+ 7 Anyone conquering will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be my son. 8 But as for the cowards and those without faith+ and those who are disgusting in their filth and murderers+ and the sexually immoral*+ and those practicing spiritism and idolaters and all the liars,+ their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur.+ This means the second death.”+

MARK 10:23
After looking around Jesus said to his disciples:“How difficult a thing it will be for those with money+ to enter into the kingdom of God!”+ 24 But the disciples gave way to surprise+ at his words. In response Jesus again said to them:“Children, how difficult a thing it is to enter into the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”+ 26 They became still more astounded and said to him:“Who, in fact, can be saved?”+ 27 Looking straight at them Jesus said:“With men it is impossible, but not so with God, for all things are possible with God.”+

1 TIMOTHY 4:1
However, the inspired utterance* says definitely that in later periods of time+ some will fall away+ from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired utterances*+ and teachings of demons,+ 2 by the hypocrisy of men who speak lies,+ marked in their conscience+ as with a branding iron; 3 forbidding to marry,+ commanding to abstain from foods+ which God created+ to be partaken of with thanksgiving by those who have faith+ and accurately know the truth. 4 The reason for this is that every creation of God is fine,+ and nothing is to be rejected+ if it is received with thanksgiving,+ 5 for it is sanctified* through God’s word and prayer over [it].

When I heard and saw them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who had been showing me these things. 9 But he tells me:“Be careful! Do not do that! I am only a fellow slave of you and of your brothers the prophets and of those observing the words of this scroll. Worship God.

Revelation 20:1-15
20 And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven with the key of the abyss+ and a great chain in his hand. 2 He seized the dragon,+ the original serpent,+ who is the Devil+ and Satan,+ and bound him for 1,000 years. 3 And he hurled him into the abyss+ and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he would not mislead the nations anymore until the 1,000 years were ended. After this he must be released for a little while.+
4 And I saw thrones, and those who sat on them were given authority to judge. Yes, I saw the souls* of those executed* for the witness they gave about Jesus and for speaking about God, and those who had not worshiped the wild beast or its image and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand.+ And they came to life and ruled as kings with the Christ+ for 1,000 years. 5 (The rest of the dead+ did not come to life until the 1,000 years were ended.) This is the first resurrection.+ 6 Happy and holy is anyone having part in the first resurrection;+ over these the second death+ has no authority,+ but they will be priests+ of God and of the Christ, and they will rule as kings with him for the 1,000 years.+
7 Now as soon as the 1,000 years have ended, Satan will be released from his prison, 8 and he will go out to mislead those nations in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Ma′gog, to gather them together for the war. The number of these is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they advanced over the whole earth and encircled the camp of the holy ones and the beloved city. But fire came down out of heaven and consumed them.+ 10 And the Devil who was misleading them was hurled into the lake of fire and sulfur, where both the wild beast+ and the false prophet already were;+ and they will be tormented* day and night forever and ever.
11 And I saw a great white throne and the One seated on it.+ From before him the earth and the heaven fled away,+ and no place was found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and scrolls were opened. But another scroll was opened; it is the scroll of life.+ The dead were judged out of those things written in the scrolls according to their deeds.+ 13 And the sea gave up the dead in it, and death and the Grave* gave up the dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds.+ 14 And death and the Grave* were hurled into the lake of fire.+ This means the second death,+ the lake of fire.+ 15 Furthermore, whoever was not found written in the book of life+ was hurled into the lake of fire.+
