Luke.16:17 17εὐκοπώτερον δέ ἐστιν τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν παρελθεῖν τοῦ νόμου μίαν κεραίαν πεσεῖν. 17 But that doesn’t mean that the law has lost its force . {NEQ} It is easier for {NEQ} heaven and {NEQ} earth to disappear than for the smallest point of God’s law to be overturned .

Luke.18:11 11 Φαρισαῖος σταθεὶς πρὸς ἑαυτὸν ταῦτα προσηύχετο· θεός, εὐχαριστῶ σοι, ὅτι οὐκ εἰμὶ ὥσπερ οἱ λοιποὶ τῶν ἀνθρώπων· ἅρπαγες, ἄδικοι, μοιχοί· καὶ ὡς οὗτος τελώνης. 11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed this prayer  *  : I thank you , {NEQ} God , that I am not a sinner like everyone else .

John.3:19 19αὕτη δέ ἐστιν κρίσις· ὅτι τὸ φῶς ἐλήλυθεν εἰς τὸν κόσμον, καὶ ἠγάπησαν οἱ ἄνθρωποι μᾶλλον τὸ σκότος τὸ φῶς, ἦν γὰρ αὐτῶν πονηρὰ τὰ ἔργα. 19 And the judgment is based on this fact : {NEQ} God’s light came into the world , but {NEQ} people loved the darkness more than the light , for their {NEQ} actions were evil .
John.4:1 1ὡς οὖν ἔγνω Ἰησοῦς, ὅτι ἤκουσαν οἱ Φαρισαῖοι ὅτι Ἰησοῦς πλείονας μαθητὰς ποιεῖ καὶ βαπτίζει Ἰωάνης 4:1 {NEQ} {NEQ} {NEQ} Jesus  *  knew {NEQ} the Pharisees had heard that he was baptizing and making more disciples than John
John.4:27 27καὶ ἐπὶ τούτῳ ἦλθαν οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ. καὶ ἐθαύμαζον ὅτι μετὰ γυναικὸς ἐλάλει, οὐδεὶς μέντοι εἶπεν, Τί ζητεῖς; Τί λαλεῖς μετ᾽ αὐτῆς; 27 Just then his {NEQ} disciples came back . {NEQ} They were shocked to find him talking to a woman , but none of them had the nerve to ask , What do you want with her ? or Why are you talking to her ?
John.6:19 19ἐληλακότες οὖν ὡς σταδίους εἴκοσι πέντε τριάκοντα θεωροῦσιν τὸν Ἰησοῦν περιπατοῦντα ἐπὶ τῆς θαλάσσης καὶ ἐγγὺς τοῦ πλοίου γινόμενον. καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν. 19 {NEQ} They had rowed three or four miles  *  when suddenly they saw {NEQ} Jesus walking on the water {NEQ} toward the boat . {NEQ} They were terrified ,

John.7:48 48μή τις ἐκ τῶν ἀρχόντων ἐπίστευσεν εἰς αὐτὸν ἐκ τῶν Φαρισαίων; 48 Is there a single one of us {NEQ} rulers or {RPT} {NEQ} Pharisees who believes in him ?
John.8:14 14ἀπεκρίθη Ἰησοῦς καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Κἂν ἐγὼ μαρτυρῶ περὶ ἐμαυτοῦ ἀληθής ἐστιν μαρτυρία μου. ὅτι οἶδα πόθεν ἦλθον καὶ ποῦ ὑπάγω, ὑμεῖς δὲ οὐκ οἴδατε πόθεν ἔρχομαι ποῦ ὑπάγω. 14 Jesus told them , These {NEQ} claims are valid even though I make them about myself .

John.9:2 2καὶ ἠρώτησαν αὐτὸν οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ λέγοντες, Ῥαββεί, τίς ἥμαρτεν, οὗτος οἱ γονεῖς αὐτοῦ, ἵνα τυφλὸς γεννηθῇ; 2 Rabbi , his {NEQ} disciples {NEQ} asked him , why was this man born blind ? Was it because of his own sins or his {NEQ} parents' sins ?

John.13:29 29τινὲς γὰρ ἐδόκουν, ἐπεὶ τὸ γλωσσόκομον εἶχεν Ἰούδας, ὅτι λέγει αὐτῷ Ἰησοῦς, Ἀγόρασον ὧν χρείαν ἔχομεν εἰς τὴν ἑορτὴν τοῖς πτωχοῖς ἵνα τι δῷ. 29 Since Judas was their treasurer , some {NEQ} thought {NEQ} Jesus {NEQ} was telling him to go and pay for the food or to give some money to the poor .
John.18:34 34ἀπεκρίθη Ἰησοῦς, Ἀπὸ σεαυτοῦ σὺ τοῦτο λέγεις, ἄλλοι εἶπόν σοι περὶ ἐμοῦ; 34 Jesus replied , Is this your own {RPT} question , or did others tell you about me ?

Acts.3:12 12ἰδὼν δὲ Πέτρος ἀπεκρίνατο πρὸς τὸν λαόν, ̓Άνδρες Ἰσραηλεῖται, τί θαυμάζετε ἐπὶ τούτῳ; ἡμῖν τί ἀτενίζετε ὡς ἰδίᾳ δυνάμει εὐσεβείᾳ πεποιηκόσιν τοῦ περιπατεῖν αὐτόν; 12 {NEQ} {NEQ} Peter saw his opportunity and addressed the crowd . People of Israel , he said , what is so surprising about this ? And why stare at us as though we had made this man {NEQ} walk by our own power or godliness ?
Acts.4:7 7καὶ στήσαντες αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ μέσῳ ἐπυνθάνοντο, Ἐν ποίᾳ δυνάμει, ἐν ποίῳ ὀνόματι, ἐποιήσατε τοῦτο ὑμεῖς; 7 {NEQ} They brought in the two disciples and demanded , By what power , or in whose name , have you done this ?
Acts.4:19 19 δὲ Πέτρος καὶ Ἰωάνης ἀποκριθέντες εἶπαν πρὸς αὐτούς, Εἰ δίκαιόν ἐστιν ἐνώπιον τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν ἀκούειν μᾶλλον τοῦ θεοῦ, κρίνατε, 19 But {NEQ} Peter and John replied {RPT} , {NEQ} Do you think {NEQ} God wants us to obey you rather than him ?
Acts.4:34 34οὐδὲ γὰρ ἐνδεής τις ἦν ἐν αὐτοῖς, ὅσοι γὰρ κτήτορες χωρίων οἰκιῶν ὑπῆρχον πωλοῦντες ἔφερον τὰς τιμὰς τῶν πιπρασκομένων 34   There were no {NEQ} needy people among them , because those who owned land or houses would sell them
Acts.5:29 29ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ Πέτρος καὶ οἱ ἀπόστολοι εἶπαν, Πειθαρχεῖν δεῖ θεῷ μᾶλλον ἀνθρώποις. 29 But Peter and the apostles replied , We must obey God rather than any human authority .
Acts.5:38 38καὶ τὰ νῦν λέγω ὑμῖν, ἀπόστητε ἀπὸ τῶν ἀνθρώπων τούτων· καὶ ἄφετε αὐτούς. ὅτι ἐὰν ἐξ ἀνθρώπων βουλὴ αὕτη τὸ ἔργον τοῦτο, καταλυθήσεται. 38 So my advice is {RPT} , leave these {NEQ} men alone . {NEQ} Let them go . {NEQ} If they are {NEQ} planning and doing these things merely on their own , it will soon be overthrown .
Acts.7:2 2 δὲ ἔφη· ̓Άνδρες ἀδελφοὶ καὶ πατέρες, ἀκούσατε. θεὸς τῆς δόξης ὤφθη τῷ πατρὶ ἡμῶν Ἀβραὰμ ὄντι ἐν τῇ Μεσοποταμίᾳ πρὶν κατοικῆσαι αὐτὸν ἐν Χαρράν. 2 {NEQ} This was Stephen’s reply : Brothers and fathers , listen to me . Our {NEQ} glorious {NEQ} God appeared to our {NEQ} ancestor Abraham in {NEQ} Mesopotamia before he settled in Haran .  * 
Acts.7:49 49 οὐρανός μοι θρόνος, καὶ γῆ ὑποπόδιον τῶν ποδῶν μου. Ποῖον οἶκον οἰκοδομήσετέ μοι; λέγει κύριος· ̓Ὴ τίς τόπος τῆς καταπαύσεώς μου; 49 {NEQ} Heaven is my throne , and the earth is my footstool . Could you build me a temple as good as that ? asks the LORD . Could you build me such a {NEQ} resting place ?
Acts.8:34 34ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ εὐνοῦχος τῷ Φιλίππῳ εἶπεν, Δέομαί σου, περὶ τίνος προφήτης λέγει τοῦτο; περὶ ἑαυτοῦ περὶ ἑτέρου τινός; 34 {NEQ} The eunuch asked {NEQ} Philip , Tell me {RPT} , {RPT} {RPT} was the prophet talking {RPT} about himself or {RPT} someone else ?
Acts.10:28 28ἔφη τε πρὸς αὐτούς, Ὑμεῖς ἐπίστασθε ὡς ἀθέμιτόν ἐστιν ἀνδρὶ Ἰουδαίῳ κολλᾶσθαι προσέρχεσθαι ἀλλοφύλῳ· κἀμοὶ θεὸς ἔδειξεν μηδένα κοινὸν ἀκάθαρτον λέγειν ἄνθρωπον. 28 {NEQ} Peter told them , You know it is against our laws for a Jewish man to enter a Gentile home like this or to associate with you . But {NEQ} God has shown me that I should no longer think of anyone as impure or unclean .
Acts.11:8 8εἶπον δέ, Μηδαμῶς, κύριε· ὅτι κοινὸν ἀκάθαρτον οὐδέποτε εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸ στόμα μου. 8 No , Lord , {NEQ} I replied . I have never eaten anything that our Jewish laws have declared impure or unclean .  * 
Acts.17:21 21(Ἀθηναῖοι δὲ πάντες καὶ οἱ ἐπιδημοῦντες ξένοι εἰς οὐδὲν ἕτερον ηὐκαίρουν λέγειν τι ἀκούειν τι καινότερον.) 21 ( It should be explained that all the Athenians as well as the foreigners in Athens seemed to spend all their time {RPT} {RPT} discussing the latest ideas . )
Acts.17:29 29γένος οὖν ὑπάρχοντες τοῦ θεοῦ, οὐκ ὀφείλομεν νομίζειν χρυσῷ ἀργύρῳ λίθῳ, χαράγματι τέχνης καὶ ἐνθυμήσεως ἀνθρώπου, τὸ θεῖον εἶναι ὅμοιον. 29 And since this is true , we shouldn’t think of {NEQ} God as an idol designed by craftsmen from gold or silver or stone .
Acts.18:14 14μέλλοντος δὲ τοῦ Παύλου ἀνοίγειν τὸ στόμα, εἶπεν Γαλλίων πρὸς τοὺς Ἰουδαίους, Εἰ μὲν ἦν ἀδίκημά τι ῥᾳδιούργημα πονηρόν, Ἰουδαῖοι, κατὰ λόγον ἂν ἀνεσχόμην ὑμῶν. 14 But just as {NEQ} Paul started to make his defense , {NEQ} Gallio turned to Paul’s accusers and said , Listen , you Jews , if this were a case involving some wrongdoing or a serious crime , I would have a reason to accept your case .
Acts.19:12 12ὥστε καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς ἀσθενοῦντας ἀποφέρεσθαι ἀπὸ τοῦ χρωτὸς αὐτοῦ σουδάρια σιμικίνθια καὶ ἀπαλλάσσεσθαι ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν τὰς νόσους, τά τε πνεύματα τὰ πονηρὰ ἐκπορεύεσθαι. 12 When {NEQ} handkerchiefs or aprons that had merely touched his {NEQ} skin were placed on sick people , {NEQ} they were healed of {RPT} their {NEQ} diseases , and {RPT} {RPT} evil spirits were expelled .
Acts.20:33 33ἀργυρίου χρυσίου ἱματισμοῦ οὐδενὸς ἐπεθύμησα. 33 I have never coveted anyone’s silver or gold or fine clothes .
Acts.20:35 35πάντα ὑπέδειξα ὑμῖν ὅτι οὕτως κοπιῶντας δεῖ ἀντιλαμβάνεσθαι τῶν ἀσθενούντων· μνημονεύειν τε τῶν λόγων τοῦ κυρίου Ἰησοῦ ὅτι αὐτὸς εἶπεν· Μακάριόν ἐστιν μᾶλλον διδόναι λαμβάνειν. 35 And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard . {NEQ} You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus {RPT} : It is more blessed to give than to receive .
Acts.23:9 9ἐγένετο δὲ κραυγὴ μεγάλη. καὶ ἀναστάντες τινὲς τῶν γραμματέων τοῦ μέρους τῶν Φαρισαίων διεμάχοντο. λέγοντες, Οὐδὲν κακὸν εὑρίσκομεν ἐν τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ τούτῳ. εἰ δὲ πνεῦμα ἐλάλησεν αὐτῷ ἄγγελος. 9 So there was a great uproar . Some of the teachers of religious law who were {NEQ} Pharisees {NEQ} jumped up and began to argue forcefully . We see nothing wrong with {NEQ} him , they shouted . Perhaps a spirit or an angel spoke to him .
Acts.23:29 29ὃν εὗρον ἐγκαλούμενον περὶ ζητημάτων τοῦ νόμου αὐτῶν— μηδὲν δὲ ἄξιον θανάτου δεσμῶν ἔχοντα ἔγκλημα. 29 {RPT} I soon discovered the charge was something regarding their religious {NEQ} law {NEQ} certainly {RPT} {RPT} nothing worthy of imprisonment or death .
Acts.24:12 12καὶ οὔτε ἐν τῷ ἱερῷ εὗρόν με πρός τινα διαλεγόμενον, ἐπίστασιν ποιοῦντα ὄχλου οὔτε ἐν ταῖς συναγωγαῖς οὔτε κατὰ τὴν πόλιν. 12 {NEQ} My accusers never found me arguing with anyone in the Temple , nor stirring up a riot {RPT} in any synagogue or on the streets of the city .
Acts.24:20 20 αὐτοὶ οὗτοι εἰπάτωσαν τί εὗρον ἀδίκημα στάντος μου ἐπὶ τοῦ συνεδρίου, 20 {NEQ} Ask these men here what crime the Jewish high council  *  found me guilty of ,
Acts.24:21 21 περὶ μιᾶς ταύτης φωνῆς ἧς ἐκέκραξα ἐν αὐτοῖς ἑστὼς ὅτι, Περὶ ἀναστάσεως νεκρῶν ἐγὼ κρίνομαι σήμερον ἐφ᾽ ὑμῶν. 21 except for the one time {RPT} I shouted out {NEQ} {RPT} {NEQ} , I am on trial before you today because I believe in the resurrection of the dead !
Acts.25:6 6διατρίψας δὲ ἐν αὐτοῖς ἡμέρας οὐ πλείους ὀκτὼ δέκα καταβὰς εἰς Καισάρειαν, τῇ ἐπαύριον καθίσας ἐπὶ τοῦ βήματος ἐκέλευσεν τὸν Παῦλον ἀχθῆναι. 6 {NEQ} About eight or ten days later {RPT} Festus returned to Caesarea , and on the following day he took his seat in court and ordered that {NEQ} Paul be brought in .
Acts.25:16 16πρὸς οὓς ἀπεκρίθην ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν ἔθος Ῥωμαίοις χαρίζεσθαί τινα ἄνθρωπον πρὶν κατηγορούμενος κατὰ πρόσωπον· ἔχοι τοὺς κατηγόρους τόπον τε ἀπολογίας λάβοι περὶ τοῦ ἐγκλήματος. 16 I pointed out to them that Roman law does not convict people without a trial . They must be given an opportunity to confront their accusers and defend themselves .
Acts.26:31 31καὶ ἀναχωρήσαντες, ἐλάλουν πρὸς ἀλλήλους λέγοντες ὅτι, Οὐδὲν θανάτου δεσμῶν ἄξιόν τι πράσσει ἄνθρωπος οὗτος. 31 {NEQ} As they went out , they talked it over and agreed , This {NEQ} man hasn’t done anything to deserve death or imprisonment .
Acts.27:11 11 δὲ ἑκατοντάρχης τῷ κυβερνήτῃ καὶ τῷ ναυκλήρῳ μᾶλλον ἐπείθετο τοῖς ὑπὸ Παύλου λεγομένοις. 11 But the officer in charge of the prisoners listened more to the ship’s captain and the owner than to Paul .
Acts.28:6 6οἱ δὲ προσεδόκων αὐτὸν μέλλειν πίμπρασθαι καταπίπτειν ἄφνω νεκρόν. ἐπὶ πολὺ δὲ αὐτῶν προσδοκώντων καὶ θεωρούντων μηδὲν ἄτοπον εἰς αὐτὸν γινόμενον, μεταβαλόμενοι ἔλεγον αὐτὸν εἶναι θεόν. 6 {NEQ} The people waited for him to swell up or suddenly drop dead . But when they had waited a long time and saw that he wasn’t harmed , they changed their minds and decided he was a god .
Acts.28:17 17ἐγένετο δὲ μετὰ ἡμέρας τρεῖς, συνκαλέσασθαι αὐτὸν τοὺς ὄντας τῶν Ἰουδαίων πρώτους. συνελθόντων δὲ αὐτῶν ἔλεγεν πρὸς αὐτούς, Ἐγώ, ἄνδρες ἀδελφοί, οὐδὲν ἐναντίον ποιήσας τῷ λαῷ τοῖς ἔθεσι τοῖς πατρῴοις, δέσμιος ἐξ Ἱεροσολύμων παρεδόθην εἰς τὰς χεῖρας τῶν Ῥωμαίων· 17 Three days after Paul’s arrival , he called together the local {NEQ} Jewish leaders . {RPT} {NEQ} {RPT} He said to them , Brothers , I was arrested in Jerusalem and handed over to the Roman government , even though I had done nothing against our people or the customs of our ancestors .
Acts.28:21 21οἱ δὲ πρὸς αὐτὸν εἶπαν, Ἡμεῖς οὔτε γράμματα περὶ σοῦ ἐδεξάμεθα ἀπὸ τῆς Ἰουδαίας οὔτε παραγενόμενός τις τῶν ἀδελφῶν ἀπήγγειλεν ἐλάλησέν τι περὶ σοῦ πονηρόν. 21 {NEQ} {RPT} They replied , We have had no letters from {NEQ} Judea or reports against you from {RPT} {RPT} anyone who has come here .
Rom.1:21 21διότι γνόντες τὸν θεόν, οὐχ ὡς θεὸν ἐδόξασαν ηὐχαρίστησαν· ἀλλὰ ἐματαιώθησαν ἐν τοῖς διαλογισμοῖς αὐτῶν. καί, ἐσκοτίσθη ἀσύνετος αὐτῶν καρδία. 21 Yes , they knew {NEQ} God , but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks . And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like . As a result , their {NEQ} minds became dark and confused .
Rom.2:4 4 τοῦ πλούτου τῆς χρηστότητος αὐτοῦ, καὶ τῆς ἀνοχῆς, καὶ τῆς μακροθυμίας καταφρονεῖς; ἀγνοῶν ὅτι τὸ χρηστὸν τοῦ θεοῦ εἰς μετάνοιάν σε ἄγει; 4 {NEQ} Don’t you see {NEQ} how wonderfully {NEQ} kind , {NEQ} {NEQ} tolerant , and {NEQ} patient God is with you ? Does this mean nothing to you ? Can’t you see that his {NEQ} kindness is intended to turn you from your sin ?
Rom.2:15 15οἵτινες ἐνδείκνυνται τὸ ἔργον τοῦ νόμου γραπτὸν ἐν ταῖς καρδίαις αὐτῶν, συμμαρτυρούσης αὐτῶν τῆς συνειδήσεως καὶ μεταξὺ ἀλλήλων τῶν λογισμῶν κατηγορούντων καὶ ἀπολογουμένων, 15 They demonstrate that {NEQ} {NEQ} God’s law is written in their {NEQ} hearts , for their own {NEQ} conscience {RPT} and {NEQ} thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right .
Rom.3:1 1τί οὖν τὸ περισσὸν τοῦ Ἰουδαίου; τίς ὠφέλεια τῆς περιτομῆς; 3:1 Then what’s the advantage of being a Jew ? {NEQ} Is there any value in the ceremony of {NEQ} circumcision ?
Rom.3:29 29ἤ, Ἰουδαίων θεὸς μόνον; οὐχὶ καὶ ἐθνῶν; ναὶ καὶ ἐθνῶν· 29 After all , is God the God of the Jews only ? Isn’t he also the God of the Gentiles ? Of course he is {RPT} {RPT} .
Rom.4:9 9 μακαρισμὸς οὖν οὗτος ἐπὶ τὴν περιτομήν, καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν ἀκροβυστίαν; λέγομεν γάρ, ἐλογίσθη τῷ Ἀβραὰμ πίστις εἰς δικαιοσύνην. 9 Now , is this {NEQ} blessing only for the Jews , or is it also for {NEQ} uncircumcised Gentiles ?  *  Well , we have been saying that {NEQ} Abraham was counted as righteous by God because of his faith .
Rom.4:10 10πῶς οὖν ἐλογίσθη; ἐν περιτομῇ ὄντι, ἐν ἀκροβυστίᾳ; οὐκ ἐν περιτομῇ ἀλλ᾽ ἐν ἀκροβυστίᾳ· 10 But how did this happen ? Was he counted as righteous only after he was circumcised , or was it before he was circumcised ? Clearly , God accepted Abraham {NEQ} {RPT} {RPT} before he was circumcised !
Rom.4:13 13οὐ γὰρ διὰ νόμου ἐπαγγελία τῷ Ἀβραὰμ τῷ σπέρματι αὐτοῦ τὸ κληρονόμον αὐτὸν εἶναι κόσμου, ἀλλὰ διὰ δικαιοσύνης πίστεως. 13 Clearly , God’s promise {RPT} to give the whole earth to {NEQ} Abraham and his {NEQ} descendants was based not on his obedience to God’s law , but on a right relationship with God that comes by faith .
Rom.6:3 3 ἀγνοεῖτε ὅτι ὅσοι ἐβαπτίσθημεν εἰς Χριστὸν Ἰησοῦν, εἰς τὸν θάνατον αὐτοῦ ἐβαπτίσθημεν; 3 Or have you forgotten that {RPT} when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism , we joined him in his {NEQ} death ?
Rom.6:16 16οὐκ οἴδατε ὅτι παριστάνετε ἑαυτοὺς δούλους εἰς ὑπακοήν, δοῦλοί ἐστε ὑπακούετε, ἤτοι ἁμαρτίας εἰς θάνατον, ὑπακοῆς εἰς δικαιοσύνην; 16 Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey ? {RPT} You {RPT} can be a slave {RPT} {RPT} to sin , which leads to death , or you can choose to obey God , which leads to righteous living .
Rom.7:1 1ἤ, ἀγνοεῖτε, ἀδελφοί— γινώσκουσιν γὰρ νόμον λαλῶ— ὅτι νόμος κυριεύει τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐφ᾽ ὅσον χρόνον ζῇ; 7:1 Now , dear brothers and sisters  *  {NEQ} you who are familiar with {NEQ} the law don’t you know that the law applies only while a person is living ?
Rom.8:35 35τίς ἡμᾶς χωρίσει ἀπὸ τῆς ἀγάπης τοῦ Χριστοῦ; θλῖψις στενοχωρία, διωγμός, λιμός, γυμνότης, κίνδυνος, μάχαιρα; 35 Can anything ever separate us from {NEQ} Christ’s {NEQ} love ? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity , or are persecuted , or hungry , or destitute , or in danger , or threatened with death ?
Rom.9:11 11μήπω γὰρ γεννηθέντων, μηδὲ πραξάντων τι ἀγαθὸν φαῦλον, (ἵνα κατ᾽ ἐκλογὴν πρόθεσις τοῦ θεοῦ μένῃ· 11 But before they were born , before they had done anything good or bad , she received a message from God . ( This message shows that {NEQ} God chooses people according to his own purposes ;
Rom.9:21 21 οὐκ ἔχει ἐξουσίαν κεραμεὺς τοῦ πηλοῦ, ἐκ τοῦ αὐτοῦ φυράματος, ποιῆσαι μὲν εἰς τιμὴν σκεῦος δὲ εἰς ἀτιμίαν; 21 When a potter makes jars out of clay , doesn’t he have a right to use the same {NEQ} lump of clay to make one jar for decoration and another to throw garbage into ?
Rom.10:7 7ἤ, Τίς καταβήσεται εἰς τὴν ἄβυσσον; (τοῦτ᾽ ἔστιν Χριστὸν ἐκ νεκρῶν ἀναγαγεῖν.) 7 And don’t say , Who will go down to the place of the dead ? ( {NEQ} {NEQ} to bring Christ back to life again ) .
Rom.11:2 2οὐκ ἀπώσατο θεὸς τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ, ὃν προέγνω. οὐκ οἴδατε ἐν Ἠλείᾳ τί λέγει γραφή; ὡς ἐντυγχάνει τῷ θεῷ κατὰ τοῦ Ἰσραήλ, 2 No , {NEQ} God has not rejected his own {NEQ} people , whom he chose from the very beginning . {NEQ} {NEQ} Do you realize what the Scriptures say about this ? {NEQ} Elijah the prophet {NEQ} complained to {NEQ} God about {NEQ} the people of Israel and said ,
Rom.11:34 34τίς γὰρ ἔγνω νοῦν κυρίου; τίς σύμβουλος αὐτοῦ ἐγένετο; 34 For who can know the LORD’s thoughts ? {NEQ} Who knows enough to give him advice ?  * 
Rom.11:35 35 τίς προέδωκεν αὐτῷ καὶ ἀνταποδοθήσεται αὐτῷ; 35 And who has given him so much that he needs to pay it back {RPT} ?  * 
Rom.13:11 11καὶ τοῦτο, εἰδότες τὸν καιρόν· ὅτι ὥρα ἤδη ὑμᾶς. ἐξ ὕπνου ἐγερθῆναι, νῦν γὰρ ἐγγύτερον ἡμῶν σωτηρία ὅτε ἐπιστεύσαμεν. 11 This is all the more urgent , for you know how late it is ; {NEQ} time is running out {RPT} . Wake up , for our {NEQ} salvation is nearer now than when we first believed .
Rom.14:4 4σὺ τίς εἶ κρίνων ἀλλότριον οἰκέτην; τῷ ἰδίῳ κυρίῳ στήκει πίπτει· σταθήσεται δέ, δυνατεῖ γὰρ κύριος στῆσαι αὐτόν. 4 Who are you to condemn someone else’s servants ? Their own master will judge whether they stand or fall . And with the Lord’s help , they will stand and receive his approval .
Rom.14:10 10σὺ δὲ τί κρίνεις τὸν ἀδελφόν σου; καὶ σὺ τί ἐξουθενεῖς τὸν ἀδελφόν σου; πάντες γάρ, παραστησόμεθα τῷ βήματι τοῦ θεοῦ. 10 So why do you condemn another {NEQ} believer  *  ? {NEQ} {NEQ} Why do you look down on another {NEQ} believer ? Remember , we will all stand before the judgment seat of {NEQ} God .
Rom.14:13 13μηκέτι οὖν ἀλλήλους κρίνωμεν· ἀλλὰ τοῦτο κρίνατε μᾶλλον τὸ μὴ τιθέναι πρόσκομμα τῷ ἀδελφῷ σκάνδαλον. 13 So let’s stop condemning each other . Decide instead to live in such a way that you will {NEQ} not cause another believer to stumble and fall .
1Cor.1:13 13μεμέρισται Χριστός; μὴ Παῦλος ἐσταυρώθη ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν; εἰς τὸ ὄνομα Παύλου ἐβαπτίσθητε; 13 Has {NEQ} Christ been divided into factions ? Was I , Paul , crucified for you ? {NEQ} Were any of you baptized in the name of Paul ? Of course not !
1Cor.2:1 1κἀγὼ ἐλθὼν πρὸς ὑμᾶς, ἀδελφοί, ἦλθον οὐ καθ᾽ ὑπεροχὴν λόγου σοφίας καταγγέλλων ὑμῖν τὸ μυστήριον τοῦ θεοῦ. 2:1 When I first came to you , dear brothers and sisters ,  *  I didn’t use lofty words and impressive wisdom to tell you {NEQ} God’s {NEQ} secret plan .  * 
1Cor.4:3 3ἐμοὶ δέ, εἰς ἐλάχιστόν ἐστιν ἵνα ὑφ᾽ ὑμῶν ἀνακριθῶ ὑπὸ ἀνθρωπίνης ἡμέρας· ἀλλ᾽ οὐδὲ ἐμαυτὸν ἀνακρίνω. 3 As for me , it matters very little how I might be evaluated by you or by any human authority . I don’t even trust my own judgment on this point .
1Cor.4:21 21τί θέλετε; ἐν ῥάβδῳ ἔλθω πρὸς ὑμᾶς, ἐν ἀγάπῃ πνεύματί τε πραΰτητος; 21 Which do you choose ? Should I come {NEQ} with a rod to punish you , or should I come with love and a gentle spirit ?
1Cor.5:10 10οὐ πάντως τοῖς πόρνοις τοῦ κόσμου τούτου, τοῖς πλεονέκταις, καὶ ἅρπαξιν εἰδωλολάτραις. ἐπεὶ ὠφείλετε ἄρα ἐκ τοῦ κόσμου ἐξελθεῖν. 10 But I wasn’t talking about unbelievers who indulge in sexual sin , or are {NEQ} greedy , or cheat people , or worship idols . {NEQ} {NEQ} You would have to leave {RPT} {RPT} {RPT} {NEQ} this world to avoid people like that .
1Cor.5:11 11νῦν δὲ ἔγραψα ὑμῖν μὴ συναναμίγνυσθαι ἐάν τις ἀδελφὸς ὀνομαζόμενος πόρνος, πλεονέκτης, εἰδωλολάτρης, λοίδορος, μέθυσος, ἅρπαξ· τῷ τοιούτῳ μηδὲ συνεσθίειν. 11 {NEQ} {NEQ} I meant that you are not to associate with {NEQ} anyone who claims to be a believer  *  yet indulges in sexual sin , or is greedy , or worships idols , or is abusive , or is a drunkard , or cheats people . Don’t even eat with {NEQ} such people .
1Cor.6:2 2 οὐκ οἴδατε ὅτι οἱ ἅγιοι τὸν κόσμον κρινοῦσιν; καὶ εἰ ἐν ὑμῖν κρίνεται κόσμος, ἀνάξιοί ἐστε κριτηρίων ἐλαχίστων; 2 {NEQ} Don’t you realize that someday we believers will judge the world ? And since you are going to judge the world , can’t you decide even these little things among yourselves ?
1Cor.6:9 9 οὐκ οἴδατε ὅτι ἄδικοι θεοῦ βασιλείαν οὐ κληρονομήσουσιν; μὴ πλανᾶσθε· οὔτε πόρνοι, οὔτε εἰδωλολάτραι, οὔτε μοιχοί, οὔτε μαλακοί, οὔτε ἀρσενοκοῖται, 9 {NEQ} Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God ? Don’t fool yourselves . {RPT} Those who indulge in sexual sin , or who worship idols , or commit adultery , or are male prostitutes , or practice homosexuality ,
1Cor.6:16 16 οὐκ οἴδατε ὅτι κολλώμενος τῇ πόρνῃ, ἓν σῶμά ἐστιν; ̓Έσονται γάρ, φησίν, Οἱ δύο εἰς σάρκα μίαν. 16 And don’t you realize that if a man joins himself to a prostitute , he becomes one body with her ? For the Scriptures say , The two are united into one .  * 
1Cor.6:19 19 οὐκ οἴδατε ὅτι τὸ σῶμα ὑμῶν ναὸς τοῦ ἐν ὑμῖν ἁγίου πνεύματός ἐστιν, οὗ ἔχετε ἀπὸ θεοῦ; καὶ οὐκ ἐστὲ ἑαυτῶν, 19   {NEQ} Don’t you realize that your {NEQ} body is the temple of the Holy Spirit , who lives in you and was given to you by God ? {NEQ} You do not belong to yourself ,
1Cor.7:9 9εἰ δὲ οὐκ ἐγκρατεύονται, γαμησάτωσαν· κρεῖττον γάρ ἐστιν γαμεῖν πυροῦσθαι. 9 But if they can’t control themselves , they should go ahead and marry . {NEQ} It’s better to marry than to burn with lust .
1Cor.7:11 11ἐὰν δὲ καὶ χωρισθῇ, μενέτω ἄγαμος τῷ ἀνδρὶ καταλλαγήτω. καὶ ἄνδρα γυναῖκα μὴ ἀφιέναι. 11 But if she does leave him , let her remain single or else be reconciled to {NEQ} him . And the husband must not leave his wife .
1Cor.7:15 15(εἰ δὲ ἄπιστος χωρίζεται, χωριζέσθω. οὐ δεδούλωται ἀδελφὸς ἀδελφὴ ἐν τοῖς τοιούτοις, ἐν δὲ εἰρήνῃ κέκληκεν ὑμᾶς θεός.) 15 ( But if the husband or wife who isn’t a believer insists on leaving , let them go . In {NEQ} such cases the Christian husband or {NEQ} wife  *  is no longer bound to the other , for {NEQ} God has called you  *  to live in peace . )
1Cor.7:16 16τί γὰρ οἶδας γύναι εἰ τὸν ἄνδρα σώσεις; τί οἶδας ἄνερ εἰ τὴν γυναῖκα σώσεις; 16 {NEQ} Don’t you wives realize that your husbands might be saved because of you ? And don’t you husbands realize that your wives might be saved because of you ?
1Cor.9:6 6 μόνος ἐγὼ καὶ Βαρνάβας οὐκ ἔχομεν ἐξουσίαν μὴ ἐργάζεσθαι; 6 Or is it only Barnabas and I who {NEQ} have to work to support {NEQ} ourselves ?
1Cor.9:7 7τίς στρατεύεται ἰδίοις ὀψωνίοις ποτέ; τίς φυτεύει ἀμπελῶνα καὶ τὸν καρπὸν αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐσθίει; τίς ποιμαίνει ποίμνην καὶ ἐκ τοῦ γάλακτος τῆς ποίμνης οὐκ ἐσθίει; 7 What {NEQ} soldier has to pay his own expenses ? What farmer plants a vineyard and doesn’t have the right to eat some of its fruit ? {RPT} What shepherd cares for a flock of sheep and isn’t allowed to drink some of the milk {RPT} {RPT} ?
1Cor.9:8 8μὴ κατὰ ἄνθρωπον ταῦτα λαλῶ, καὶ νόμος ταῦτα οὐ λέγει; 8 {NEQ} Am I expressing merely a human opinion , or {NEQ} does the law say the same thing ?
1Cor.9:10 10 δι᾽ ἡμᾶς πάντως λέγει; δι᾽ ἡμᾶς γὰρ ἐγράφη, ὅτι ὀφείλει ἐπ᾽ ἐλπίδι ἀροτριῶν ἀροτριᾶν καὶ ἀλοῶν ἐπ᾽ ἐλπίδι τοῦ μετέχειν. 10 Wasn’t he actually speaking to us ? Yes , it was written for us , so that the one who plows {RPT} and the one who threshes the grain might both expect {RPT} {RPT} a share of the harvest .
1Cor.9:15 15ἐγὼ δὲ οὐ κέχρημαι οὐδενὶ τούτων. οὐκ ἔγραψα δὲ ταῦτα ἵνα οὕτως γένηται ἐν ἐμοί· καλόν, γάρ, μοι μᾶλλον ἀποθανεῖν τὸ καύχημά μου οὐδεὶς κενώσει. 15 Yet I have never used any of these rights . And I am not writing this to suggest that I want to start now . In fact , I would rather die than {NEQ} lose my right {NEQ} to boast about preaching without charge .
1Cor.10:19 19τί οὖν φημί; ὅτι εἰδωλόθυτόν τί ἐστιν, ὅτι εἴδωλόν τί ἐστιν; 19 {NEQ} What am I trying to say ? Am I saying that food offered to idols has some significance , or that idols are real gods ?
1Cor.10:22 22 παραζηλοῦμεν τὸν κύριον; μὴ ἰσχυρότεροι αὐτοῦ ἐσμέν; 22 What ? Do we dare to rouse the Lord’s jealousy ? Do you think we are stronger than he is ?
1Cor.11:4 4πᾶς ἀνὴρ προσευχόμενος προφητεύων κατὰ κεφαλῆς ἔχων καταισχύνει τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ. 4 A man dishonors his {NEQ} head  *  if he covers his head while praying or prophesying .
1Cor.11:5 5πᾶσα δὲ γυνὴ προσευχομένη προφητεύουσα ἀκατακαλύπτῳ τῇ κεφαλῇ καταισχύνει τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτῆς, ἓν γάρ ἐστιν καὶ τὸ αὐτὸ τῇ ἐξυρημένῃ. 5 But a woman dishonors her {NEQ} head  *  if she prays or prophesies without a covering on her head , for this is the same as shaving her head .
1Cor.11:6 6εἰ γὰρ οὐ κατακαλύπτεται γυνή, καὶ κειράσθω· εἰ δὲ αἰσχρὸν γυναικὶ τὸ κείρασθαι ξυρᾶσθαι, κατακαλυπτέσθω. 6 Yes , if she refuses to wear a head covering , {NEQ} she should cut off all her hair ! But since it is shameful for a woman {NEQ} to have her hair cut or her head shaved , she should wear a covering .  * 
1Cor.11:22 22μὴ γὰρ οἰκίας οὐκ ἔχετε εἰς τὸ ἐσθίειν καὶ πίνειν; τῆς ἐκκλησίας τοῦ θεοῦ καταφρονεῖτε, καὶ καταισχύνετε τοὺς μὴ ἔχοντας; τί εἴπω ὑμῖν; ἐπαινέσω ὑμᾶς; ἐν τούτῳ οὐκ ἐπαινῶ. 22 What {NEQ} ? Don’t you have your own homes for eating and drinking ? Or do you really want to disgrace {NEQ} God’s {NEQ} church and shame the poor ? What am I supposed to say {RPT} ? Do you want me to praise you ? Well , I certainly will not praise you for this !
1Cor.11:27 27ὥστε ὃς ἂν ἐσθίῃ τὸν ἄρτον πίνῃ τὸ ποτήριον τοῦ κυρίου ἀναξίως ἔνοχος ἔσται τοῦ σώματος καὶ τοῦ αἵματος τοῦ κυρίου. 27 So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of sinning against  *  the body and {NEQ} blood of the Lord .
1Cor.12:21 21οὐ δύναται δὲ ὀφθαλμὸς εἰπεῖν τῇ χειρί, Χρείαν σου οὐκ ἔχω· πάλιν κεφαλὴ τοῖς ποσίν, Χρείαν ὑμῶν οὐκ ἔχω· 21 {NEQ} The eye can never say to the hand , I don’t need you . The head can’t say to the feet , I don’t need you .
1Cor.13:1 1ἐὰν ταῖς γλώσσαις τῶν ἀνθρώπων λαλῶ καὶ τῶν ἀγγέλων, ἀγάπην δὲ μὴ ἔχω, γέγονα χαλκὸς ἠχῶν κύμβαλον ἀλαλάζον. 13:1 If I could speak all the languages of {NEQ} earth and of {NEQ} angels , but didn’t love others , I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal .
1Cor.14:5 5θέλω δὲ πάντας ὑμᾶς λαλεῖν γλώσσαις, μᾶλλον δὲ ἵνα προφητεύητε· μείζων δὲ προφητεύων λαλῶν γλώσσαις, ἐκτὸς εἰ μὴ διερμηνεύῃ ἵνα ἐκκλησία οἰκοδομὴν λάβῃ. 5 {NEQ} I wish you could all speak in tongues , but even more I wish you could all prophesy . For {NEQ} prophecy is greater than {NEQ} speaking in tongues , unless someone interprets what you are saying so that the whole church will be strengthened .
1Cor.14:6 6νῦν δὲ ἀδελφοί, ἐὰν ἔλθω πρὸς ὑμᾶς γλώσσαις λαλῶν, τί ὑμᾶς ὠφελήσω ἐὰν μὴ ὑμῖν λαλήσω ἐν ἀποκαλύψει, ἐν γνώσει ἐν προφητείᾳ ἐν διδαχῇ; 6 {NEQ} {NEQ} Dear brothers and sisters ,  *  if I should come to you speaking in an unknown language ,  *  how would that help you ? But if I bring you {RPT} a revelation or {RPT} some special knowledge or {RPT} prophecy or {RPT} teaching , that will be helpful .
1Cor.14:7 7ὅμως τὰ ἄψυχα φωνὴν διδόντα εἴτε αὐλὸς εἴτε κιθάρα ἐὰν διαστολὴν τοῖς φθόγγοις μὴ δῷ, πῶς γνωσθήσεται τὸ αὐλούμενον τὸ κιθαριζόμενον; 7 Even {NEQ} lifeless instruments like the flute or the harp must play the notes clearly , or no one will recognize the {RPT} melody .
