And all the people that heard [him
], and the publicans, justified
baptized with the baptism of John.
Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for
blessed [are they that
] keep my ways. ... But he
that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all
they that hate me love death.
Wherefore [is there
] a price
in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing
] no heart [to it
, and he shall understand these [things
]? prudent, and he shall know them? for
the ways of the LORD [are
] right, and the
just shall walk in them: but
the transgressors shall fall therein.
The Son of man came
eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend
of publicans and sinners. But
wisdom is justified of her children.
1 Corinthians 2:14
But the natural man receiveth
not the things
of the Spirit of God: for they
are foolishness unto him: neither
can he know [them
], because they are spiritually discerned. ... But he that
is spiritual judgeth
all things, yet
he himself is judged
of no man.
