Q. Who can find a virtuous woman? Proverbs 31:10 A. And he said, Who art thou? And she answered, I am Ruth thine handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt over thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman. And he said, Blessed be thou of Lord, my daughter: for thou hast shewed more kindness in latter end than at beginning, inasmuch as thou followedst not young men, whether poor or rich. And now, my daughter, fear not; I will do to thee all that thou requirest: for all city of my people doth know that thou art a virtuous woman. Ruth 3:9-11
Q. Consider work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked? Eccles. 7:13 A. Lift up hands which hang down, and feeble knees; And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of way; but let it rather be healed. Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see Lord. Hebrews 12:12-14
Q. For if trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle? 1 Cor. 14:8
A. But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet. This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John Baptist: but he that is least in kingdom of God is greater than he. Luke 7:26-28
Q. O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? Galatians 3:1

Q. There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another? James 4:12
A. If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in church. 1 Cor. 6:4
Q. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is Christ? 1 John 2:22a A. If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar. 1 John 4:20 He is antichrist, that denieth Father and Son. 1 John 2:22b
Q. For great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? Rev. 6:17
A. And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. Acts 20:32
Q. And they worshipped dragon which gave power unto beast: and they worshipped beast, saying, Who is like unto beast? who is able to make war with him? Rev. 13:4 A. Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand? Luke 14:31
Q. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest. Rev. 15:4 A. That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15:6
Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying truth through Spirit unto unfeigned love of brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all glory of man as flower of grass. The grass withereth, and flower thereof falleth away: But word of Lord endureth for ever. And this is word which by gospel is preached unto you. 1 Peter 1:22-25
But he that shall endure unto end, same shall be saved. And this gospel of kingdom shall be preached in all world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall end come. When ye therefore shall see abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel prophet, stand in holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Matthew 24:13-15
Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire sincere milk of word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that Lord is gracious. To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, stone which builders disallowed, same is made head of corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 1 Peter 1:22-2:10
If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not truth.
1 John 1:6
