Evil Bible Quotes-November

Bible Quote for November 29

Kill Pagans, Mediums, and Psychics

He executed the priests of the pagan shrines on their own altars, and he burned human bones on the altars to desecrate them.  Finally, he returned to Jerusalem.  King Josiah then issued this order to all the people: “You must celebrate the Passover to the LORD your God, as it is written in the Book of the Covenant.”  There had not been a Passover celebration like that since the time when the judges ruled in Israel, throughout all the years of the kings of Israel and Judah.  This Passover was celebrated to the LORD in Jerusalem during the eighteenth year of King Josiah’s reign.  Josiah also exterminated the mediums and psychics, the household gods, and every other kind of idol worship, both in Jerusalem and throughout the land of Judah.  He did this in obedience to all the laws written in the scroll that Hilkiah the priest had found in the LORD’s Temple.  Never before had there been a king like Josiah, who turned to the LORD with all his heart and soul and strength, obeying all the laws of Moses.  And there has never been a king like him since. (2 Kings 23:20-25 NLT)

God’s Sword

Thus the word of the LORD came to me: Son of man, prophesy! say: Thus says the LORD: A sword, a sword has been sharpened, a sword, a sword has been burnished: To work slaughter has it been sharpened, to flash lightning has it been burnished.  Why should I now withdraw it?  You have spurned the rod and every judgment!  I have given it over to the burnisher that he might hold it in his hand, A sword sharpened and burnished to be put in the hand of a slayer.  Cry out and wail, son of man, for it is destined for my people; It is for all the princes of Israel, victims of the sword with my people. Therefore, slap your thigh, for the sword has been tested; and why should it not be so? says the Lord GOD, since you have spurned the rod.  As for you, son of man, prophesy, brushing one hand against the other: While the sword is doubled and tripled, this sword of slaughter, This great sword of slaughter which threatens all around, That every heart may tremble; for many will be the fallen.  At all their gates I have appointed the sword for slaughter, Fashioned to flash lightning, burnished for slaughter.  Cleave to the right! destroy! to the left! wherever your edge is turned.  Then I, too, shall brush one hand against the other and wreak my fury. I, the LORD, have spoken. (Ezekiel 21:13-22 NAB)

Eat Children

And the LORD fulfilled the warning he had uttered against us: against our judges, who governed Israel, against our kings and princes, and against the men of Israel and Judah.  He brought down upon us evils so great that there has not been done anywhere under heaven what has been done in Jerusalem, as was written in the law of Moses: that one after another of us should eat the flesh of his son or of his daughter.  He has made us subject to all the kingdoms round about us, a reproach and a horror among all the nations round about to which the LORD has scattered us. (Baruch 2:1-4 NAB)

So beware, for the time is coming,” says the LORD, “when that place will no longer be called Topheth or the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter.  They will bury so many bodies in Topheth that there won’t be room for all the graves.  The corpses of my people will be food for the vultures and wild animals, and no one will be left to scare them away.  I will put an end to the happy singing and laughter in the streets of Jerusalem.  The joyful voices of bridegrooms and brides will no longer be heard in the towns of Judah.  The land will lie in complete desolation.

Kick Out Foreigners

At that time, when there was reading from the book of Moses in the hearing of the people, it was found written there that “no Ammonite or Moabite may ever be admitted into the assembly of God; for they would not succor the Israelites with food and water, but they hired Balaam to curse them, though our God turned the curse into a blessing.”  When they had heard the law, they separated from Israel every foreign element.

Bible Quotes for November 13

Interracial Marriage a Sin

After all that has come upon us for our evil deeds and our great guilt-though you, our God, have made less of our sinfulness than it deserved and have allowed us to survive as we do– shall we again violate your commandments by intermarrying with these abominable peoples?  Would you not become so angered with us as to destroy us without remnant or survivor?  O LORD, God of Israel, you are just; yet we have been spared, the remnant we are today. Here we are before you in our sins.  Because of all this, we can no longer stand in your presence. (Ezra 9:13-15 NAB)

Bible Quote for November 12

Desert Your Wives and Children

Then Shecaniah, the son of Jehiel, one of the sons of Elam, made this appeal to Ezra: “We have indeed betrayed our God by taking as wives foreign women of the peoples of the land.  Yet even now there remains a hope for Israel.  Let us therefore enter into a covenant before our God to dismiss all our foreign wives and the children born of them, in keeping with what you, my lord, advise, and those who fear the commandments of our God.  Let the law be observed!  Rise, then, for this is your duty!  We will stand by you, so have courage and take action!”

Ezra rose to his feet and demanded an oath from the chiefs of the priests, from the Levites and from all Israel that they would do as had been proposed; and they swore it.  Then Ezra retired from his place before the house of God and entered the chamber of Johanan, son of Eliashib, where he spent the night neither eating food nor drinking water, for he was in mourning over the betrayal by the exiles.  A proclamation was made throughout Judah and Jerusalem that all the exiles should gather together in Jerusalem, and that whoever failed to appear within three days would, according to the judgment of the leaders and elders, suffer the confiscation of all his possessions, and himself be excluded from the assembly of the exiles.

All the men of Judah and Benjamin gathered together in Jerusalem within the three-day period: it was in the ninth month, on the twentieth day of the month. All the people, standing in the open place before the house of God, were trembling both over the matter at hand and because it was raining.  Then Ezra, the priest, stood up and said to them: “Your unfaithfulness in taking foreign women as wives has added to Israel’s guilt.  But now, give praise to the LORD, the God of your fathers, and do his will: separate yourselves from the peoples of the land and from these foreign women.”  In answer, the whole assembly cried out with a loud voice: “Yes, it is our duty to do as you say!  But the people are numerous and it is the rainy season, so that we cannot remain out-of-doors; besides, this is not a task that can be performed in a single day or even two, for those of us who have sinned in this regard are many.  Let our leaders represent the whole assembly; then let all those in our cities who have taken foreign women for wives appear at appointed times, accompanied by the elders and magistrates of each city in question, till we have turned away from us our God’s burning anger over this affair.”  Only Jonathan, son of Asahel, and Jahzeiah, son of Tikvah, were against this proposal, with Meshullam and Shabbethai the Levite supporting them.

The exiles did as agreed. Ezra appointed as his assistants men who were family heads, one for each family, all of them designated by name.  They held sessions to examine the matter, beginning with the first day of the tenth month.  By the first day of the first month they had passed judgment on all the men who had taken foreign women for wives.  Among the priests, the following were found to have taken foreign women for wives: [snipped list of names]… (verse 44) All these had taken foreign wives; but they sent them away, both the women and their children. (Ezra 10:2-44 NAB)

Bible Quote for November 10

Dung Faced Priests

“Listen, you priests; this command is for you!  Listen to me and take it to heart.  Honor my name,” says the LORD Almighty, “or I will bring a terrible curse against you.  I will curse even the blessings you receive.  Indeed, I have already cursed them, because you have not taken my warning seriously.  I will rebuke your descendants and splatter your faces with the dung of your festival sacrifices, and I will add you to the dung heap.  Then at last you will know it was I who sent you this warning so that my covenant with the Levites may continue,” says the LORD Almighty. (Malachi 2:1-4 NLT)

Bible Quotes for November 8

God Kills Children

“As surely as I live, says the Sovereign LORD, I will cut you off completely.  I will show you no pity at all because you have defiled my Temple with idols and vile practices.  A third of your people will die in the city from famine and disease.  A third of them will be slaughtered by the enemy outside the city walls.  And I will scatter a third to the winds and chase them with my sword.  Then at last my anger will be spent, and I will be satisfied.  And when my fury against them has subsided, all Israel will know that I, the LORD, have spoken to them in my jealous anger.  “So I will turn you into a ruin, a mockery in the eyes of the surrounding nations and to everyone who travels by.  You will become an object of mockery and taunting and horror.  You will be a warning to all the nations around you.  They will see what happens when the LORD turns against a nation in furious rebuke.  I, the LORD, have spoken! (Ezekiel 5:11-15)

Bible Quote for November 7


So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: Since you have refused to obey my laws and regulations and have behaved even worse than your neighbors, I myself, the Sovereign LORD, am now your enemy. I will punish you publicly while all the nations watch.  Because of your detestable idols, I will punish you more severely than I have punished anyone before or ever will again.  Parents will eat their own children, and children will eat their parents.  And I will punish you by scattering the few who survive to the far reaches of the earth. (Ezekiel 5:7-10)

Jesus Steals a Colt

As they came to the towns of Bethphage and Bethany, on the Mount of Olives, he sent two disciples ahead.  “Go into that village over there,” he told them, “and as you enter it, you will see a colt tied there that has never been ridden.  Untie it and bring it here.  If anyone asks what you are doing, just say, ‘The Lord needs it.'”  So they went and found the colt, just as Jesus had said.  And sure enough, as they were untying it, the owners asked them, “Why are you untying our colt?”  And the disciples simply replied, “The Lord needs it.”  So they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their garments over it for him to ride on. (Luke 19:29-35)

Strange Fire

Aaron’s sons Nadab and Abihu put coals of fire in their incense burners and sprinkled incense over it.  In this way, they disobeyed the LORD by burning before him a different kind of fire than he had commanded.  So fire blazed forth from the LORD’s presence and burned them up, and they died there before the LORD. (Leviticus 10:1-2 NLT)

Bible Quotes for November 4

Lust is Adultery

But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust in his eye has already committed adultery with her in his heart.  So if your eye – even if it is your good eye – causes you to lust, gouge it out and throw it away.  It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.  And if your hand – even if it is your stronger hand – causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away.  It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. (Matthew 5:28-30 NLT)

Death to Nonbelievers

The LORD answered: Because they have abandoned my law, which I set before them, and have not followed it or listened to my voice, but followed rather the hardness of their hearts and the Baals, as their fathers had taught them; therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: See now, I will give them wormwood to eat and poison to drink.  I will scatter them among nations whom neither they nor their fathers have known; I will send the sword to pursue them until I have completely destroyed them. (Jeremiah 9:12-15 NAB)
