Genesis 6:1 http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/
:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.4There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Genesis 6:2 http://www.jw.org/en/
2 the sons of the true God*+ began to notice that the daughters of men were beautiful. So they began taking as wives all whom they chose.

4 The Neph′i•lim* were on the earth in those days and afterward. During that time the sons of the true God continued to have relations with the daughters of men, and these bore sons to them. They were the mighty ones of old times, the men of fame.

Ephesians 4:25

Ephesians 4:25
+ 26 Be wrathful, but do not sin;+ do not let the sun set while you are still angry;+
27 do not give the Devil an opportunity.*+
28 Let the one who steals steal no more; rather, let him do hard work, doing good work with his hands,+ so that he may have something to share with someone in need.+
29 Let a rotten word not come out of your mouth,+ but only what is good for building up as the need may be, to impart what is beneficial to the hearers.+
30 Also, do not be grieving* God’s holy spirit,+ with which you have been sealed+ for a day of releasing by ransom.+
31 Put away from yourselves every kind of malicious bitterness,+ anger, wrath, screaming, and abusive speech,+ as well as everything injurious.+ 32 But become kind to one another, tenderly compassionate,+ freely forgiving one another just as God also by Christ freely forgave you.+

Acts 23:6
6 Now Paul, knowing that the one part was made up of Sadducee s but the other of Pharisees, cried out in the San′he·drin:“Men, brothers, I am a Pharisee,+ a son of Pharisees. Over the hope of the resurrection of the dead I am being judged.
” 7 Because he said this, a dissension arose between the Pharisees and the Sadducee s, and the assembly was split.
8 For the Sadducee s say that there is neither resurrection nor angel nor spirit, but the Pharisees accept* them all.

Romans 1:24
24 Therefore, God, in keeping with the desires of their hearts, gave them up to uncleanness, so that their bodies might be dishonored among them.
25 They exchanged the truth of God for the lie and venerated* and rendered sacred service to the creation rather than the Creator, who is praised forever. Amen.
26 That is why God gave them over to uncontrolled sexual passion,+ for their females changed the natural use of themselves into one contrary to nature;+
27 likewise also the males left the natural use of* the female and became violently inflamed in their lust toward one another, males with males,+ working what is obscene and receiving in themselves the full penalty,* which was due for their error.+
28 Just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God,* God gave them over to a disapproved mental state, to do the things not fitting.+
29 And they were filled with all unrighteousness,+ wickedness, greed,*+ and badness, being full of envy,+ murder,+ strife, deceit,+ and malice,+ being whisperers,*
30 backbiters,+ haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, schemers of what is harmful,* disobedient to parents,+
31 without understanding,+ false to agreements, having no natural affection, and merciless.
32 Although these know full well the righteous decree of God—that those practicing such things are deserving of death+—they not only keep on doing them but also approve of those practicing them.

1 Corinthians 6:9
9 Or do you not know that unrighteous people will not inherit God’s Kingdom?+ Do not be misled.* Those who are sexually immoral,*+ idolaters,+ adulterers,+ men who submit to homosexual acts,+ men who practice homosexuality,*+

10 thieves, greedy people,+ drunkards,+ revilers,* and extortioners will not inherit God’s Kingdom.+

11 And yet that is what some of you were. But you have been washed clean;+ you have been sanctified;+ you have been declared righteous+ in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and with the spirit of our God.

Fare ye well.

Genesis 7:1
After that Jehovah said to Noah:“Go into the ark, you and all your household, because you are the one I have found to be righteous before me among this generation.+
2 You must take with you every kind of clean animal by sevens,*+ the male and its mate; and of every animal that is not clean just two, the male and its mate;
3 also of the flying creatures of the sky by sevens,* male and female, to preserve their offspring alive over all the earth.+
4 For in just seven days, I will make it rain+ on the earth for 40 days and 40 nights,+ and I will wipe from the surface of the ground every living thing that I have made.”+
5 Then Noah did everything that Jehovah had commanded him.

Genesis 1:6 http://www.jw.org/en/
6 Noah was 600 years old when the floodwaters came upon the earth.+ 7 So Noah, along with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, went into the ark ahead of the floodwaters.+ 8 Of every clean animal and of every animal that is not clean and of the flying creatures and of everything that moves on the ground,+ 9 they went inside the ark to Noah by twos, male and female, just as God had commanded Noah. 10 And seven days later the floodwaters came upon the earth.
11 In the 600th year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the 17th day of the month, on that day all the springs of the vast watery deep burst open and the floodgates of the heavens were opened.+ 12 And the rain poured down on the earth for 40 days and 40 nights. 13 On that very day, Noah went into the ark along with his sons, Shem, Ham, and Ja′pheth,+ and his wife and the three wives of his sons.

The lion will eat straw like the bull.+ 8 The nursing child will play over the lair of a cobra,And a weaned child will put his hand over the den of a poisonous snake.9 They will not cause any harm+ Or any ruin in all my holy mountain,+ Because the earth will certainly be filled with the knowledge of Jehovah

1 Timothy 2:4-Apostle Paul
+ 4 whose will is that all sorts of people should be saved+ and come to an accurate knowledge of truth. 5 For there is one God,+ and one mediator+ between God and men,+ a man, Christ Jesus,+ 6 who gave himself a corresponding ransom for all*+—this is what is to be witnessed to in its own due time.7 For the purpose of this witness+ I was appointed a preacher and an apostle+—I am telling the truth, I am not lying—a teacher of nations+ in the matter of faith and truth.

Ephesians 5:21
+ 21 Be in subjection to one another+ in fear of Christ. 22 Let wives be in subjection to their husbands+ as to the Lord, 23 because a husband is head of his wife+ just as the Christ is head of the congregation,+ he being a savior of this body. 24 In fact, as the congregation is in subjection to the Christ, wives should also be to their husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, continue loving your wives,+ just as the Christ also loved the congregation and gave himself up for it,+ 26 in order that he might sanctify it, cleansing it with the bath of water by means of the word,+ 27 so that he might present the congregation to himself in its splendor, without a spot or a wrinkle or any of such things,+ but holy and without blemish.+ 28 In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. A man who loves his wife loves himself, 29 for no man ever hated his own body,* but he feeds and cherishes it, just as the Christ does the congregation, 30 because we are members of his body.+ 31 “For this reason a man will leave his father and his mother and he will stick to* his wife, and the two will be one flesh.”+ 32 This sacred secret+ is great. Now I am speaking about Christ and the congregation.+ 33 Nevertheless, each one of you must love his wife+ as he does himself; on the other hand, the wife should have deep respect for her husband.+

Ephesians 5:3
3 Let sexual immorality* and every sort of uncleanness or greediness not even be mentioned among you,+ just as is proper for holy people;+ 4 neither shameful conduct nor foolish talking nor obscene jesting+—things that are not befitting—but rather the giving of thanks.+ 5 For you know this, recognizing it for yourselves, that no sexually immoral person*+ or unclean person or greedy person,+ which means being an idolater, has any inheritance in the Kingdom of the Christ and of God.+

+ 10 Keep on making sure of what is acceptable+ to the Lord; 11 and stop sharing in the unfruitful works that belong to the darkness;+ rather, expose them for what they are.+ 20 always giving thanks+ to our God and Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.+

17 After these things, the son of the woman who owned the house fell sick, and his sickness became so severe that he stopped breathing.+ 18 At this she said to E•li′jah:“What do you have against me,* O man of the true God? Have you come to remind me of my guilt and to put my son to death?”+ 19 But he said to her:“Give me your son.” Then he took him from her arms and carried him up to the roof chamber, where he was staying, and he laid him on his own bed.+ 20 He called out to Jehovah:“O Jehovah my God,+ are you also bringing harm to the widow with whom I am staying by putting her son to death?” 21 Then he stretched himself out over the child three times and called out to Jehovah:“O Jehovah my God, please, let this child’s life* come back into him.” 22 Jehovah listened to E•li′jah’s request,+ and the life* of the child came back into him, and he revived.*+ 23 E•li′jah took the child and brought him down from the roof chamber into the house and gave him to his mother; and E•li′jah said:“See, your son is alive.”+
