Cross-Reference Topical ResearchStrong's Concordance
Ye are witnesses:
Ye have been sufficiently apprised of the difficulties in your way - of God's holiness, and the nature of his service - your own weakness, inconstancy, and insufficiency - your need of the Divine help, and the hope of assistance held out in the law - and the awful consequences of apostasy, and now ye make your choice. Remember then that ye are witnesses against yourselves; and your own conscience will be witness, judge, and executioner.
Deuteronomy 26:17 Thou hast avouched the LORD this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and to hearken unto his voice:
Job 15:6 Thine own mouth condemneth thee, and not I: yea, thine own lips testify against thee.
Luke 19:22 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, [thou] wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:

ye have:

Psalms 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Psalms 119:173 Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.
Luke 10:42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
