Evil Bible Quotes-September

Bible Quote for September 30

God Kills the People of Judah

The LORD, the God of their ancestors, repeatedly sent his prophets to warn them, for he had compassion on his people and his Temple.  But the people mocked these messengers of God and despised their words.  They scoffed at the prophets until the LORD’s anger could no longer be restrained and there was no remedy.  So the LORD brought the king of Babylon against them.  The Babylonians killed Judah’s young men, even chasing after them into the Temple.  They had no pity on the people, killing both young and old, men and women, healthy and sick.  God handed them all over to Nebuchadnezzar.  The king also took home to Babylon all the utensils, large and small, used in the Temple of God, and the treasures from both the LORD’s Temple and the royal palace.  He also took with him all the royal princes.  Then his army set fire to the Temple of God, broke down the walls of Jerusalem, burned all the palaces, and completely destroyed everything of value.  The few who survived were taken away to Babylon, and they became servants to the king and his sons until the kingdom of Persia came to power.  So the message of the LORD spoken through Jeremiah was fulfilled.  The land finally enjoyed its Sabbath rest, lying desolate for seventy years, just as the prophet had said. (2 Chronicles 36:15-21 NLT)

Bible Quote for September 29

Death to the Pharaoh’s Son

Then the LORD reminded him [Moses], “When you arrive back in Egypt, go to Pharaoh and perform the miracles I have empowered you to do.  But I will make him stubborn so he will not let the people go.  Then you will tell him, ‘This is what the LORD says: Israel is my firstborn son.  I commanded you to let him go, so he could worship me.  But since you have refused, be warned!  I will kill your firstborn son!'” (Exodus 4:21-23 NLT)

(It doesn’t seem right that the Pharaoh’s son should be punished for something the Lord made the Pharaoh do.)

Bible Quote for September 27

Kill People who don’t Obey

If anyone rebels against your orders and does not obey every command you give him, he shall be put to death.  But be firm and steadfast. (Joshua 1:18 NAB)

Bible Quotes for September 26

God Kills Men and Beasts

‘This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I will make your weapons useless against the king of Babylon and the Babylonians who are attacking you.  Yes, I will bring your enemies right into the heart of this city.  I myself will fight against you with great power, for I am very angry.  You have made me furious!  I will send a terrible plague upon this city, and both people and animals will die.  And then, says the LORD, even after King Zedekiah, his officials, and everyone else in the city have survived war, famine, and disease, I will hand them over to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon.  He will slaughter them all without mercy, pity, or compassion.’  “Tell all the people, ‘This is what the LORD says: Take your choice of life or death!  Everyone who stays in Jerusalem will die from war, famine, or disease, but those who go out and surrender to the Babylonians will live.  For I have decided to bring disaster and not good upon this city, says the LORD.  It will be captured by the king of Babylon, and he will reduce it to ashes.’ (Jeremiah 21:4-10 NLT)

Bible Quotes for September 25

God’s Terror

The next day, when Pashhur finally released him, Jeremiah said, “Pashhur, the LORD has changed your name.  From now on you are to be called ‘The Man Who Lives in Terror.’  For this is what the LORD says: I will send terror upon you and all your friends, and you will watch as they are slaughtered by the swords of the enemy.  I will hand the people of Judah over to the king of Babylon.  He will take them captive to Babylon or run them through with the sword.  And I will let your enemies plunder Jerusalem.  All the famed treasures of the city – the precious jewels and gold and silver of your kings – will be carried off to Babylon.  As for you, Pashhur, you and all your household will go as captives to Babylon.  There you will die and be buried, you and all your friends to whom you promised that everything would be all right.” (Jeremiah 20:3-6 NLT)

Bible Quote for September 24

God Brings Disaster

“As these men watch, Jeremiah, smash the jar you brought with you.  Then say to them, ‘This is what the LORD Almighty says: As this jar lies shattered, so I will shatter the people of Judah and Jerusalem beyond all hope of repair.  They will bury the bodies in Topheth until there is no more room.  This is what I will do to this place and its people, says the LORD.  I will cause this city to become defiled like Topheth.  Yes, all the houses in Jerusalem, including the palace of Judah’s kings, will become like Topheth – all the houses where you burned incense on the rooftops to your star gods, and where drink offerings were poured out to your idols.'”  Then Jeremiah returned from Topheth where he had delivered this message, and he stopped in front of the Temple of the LORD.  He said to the people there, “This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: I will bring disaster upon this city and its surrounding towns just as I promised, because you have stubbornly refused to listen to me.” (Jeremiah 19:10-15 NLT)

Bible Quotes for September 23

Eat Your Children

So beware, for the time is coming, says the LORD, when this place will no longer be called Topheth or the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter.  For I will upset the battle plans of Judah and Jerusalem and let invading armies slaughter them.  The enemy will leave the dead bodies as food for the vultures and wild animals.  I will wipe Jerusalem from the face of the earth, making it a monument to their stupidity.  All who pass by will be appalled and will gasp at the destruction they see there.  I will see to it that your enemies lay siege to the city until all the food is gone.  Then those trapped inside will have to eat their own sons and daughters and friends.  They will be driven to utter despair.’ (Jeremiah 19:6-9 NLT)

Bible Quote for September 22

Let Children Starve

So let their children starve!  Let the sword pour out their blood!  Let their wives become widows without any children!  Let their old men die in a plague, and let their young men be killed in battle!  Let screaming be heard from their homes as warriors come suddenly upon them.  For they have dug a pit for me, and they have hidden traps along my path. (Jeremiah 18:21-22 NLT)

Bible Quotes for September 21

God the Head Crusher

You marched across the land in awesome anger and trampled the nations in your fury.  You went out to rescue your chosen people, to save your anointed ones.  You crushed the heads of the wicked and laid bare their bones from head to toe.  With their own weapons, you destroyed those who rushed out like a whirlwind, thinking Israel would be easy prey. (Habakkuk 3:12-14 NLT)

Bible Quote for September 20

Death Used for Crowd Control

And let them be ready for the third day.  For on the third day the Lord will come down upon Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.  You shall set bounds for the people all around, saying, ‘Take heed to yourselves that you do not go up to the mountain or touch its base.  Whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death.  Not a hand shall touch him, but he shall surely be stoned or shot with an arrow; whether man or beast, he shall not live.’  When the trumpet sounds long, they shall come near the mountain.” (Exodus 19:11-13 NKJV)

Bible Quotes for September 19

A Call to War

Say to the nations far and wide: “Get ready for war!  Call out your best warriors!  Let all your fighting men advance for the attack!  Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears.  Train even your weaklings to be warriors.  Come quickly, all you nations everywhere!  Gather together in the valley.”  And now, O LORD, call out your warriors!  “Let the nations be called to arms.  Let them march to the valley of Jehoshaphat.  There I, the LORD, will sit to pronounce judgment on them all.  Now let the sickle do its work, for the harvest is ripe.  Come, tread the winepress because it is full.  The storage vats are overflowing with the wickedness of these people.”  Thousands upon thousands are waiting in the valley of decision.  It is there that the day of the LORD will soon arrive.  The sun and moon will grow dark, and the stars will no longer shine.  The LORD’s voice will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem, and the earth and heavens will begin to shake.  But to his people of Israel, the LORD will be a welcoming refuge and a strong fortress.  “Then you will know that I, the LORD your God, live in Zion, my holy mountain. Jerusalem will be holy forever, and foreign armies will never conquer her again. (Joel 3:9-17 NLT some Bibles have this as chapter 4)

Bible Quote for September 17

A Worthless Race

But you, draw near, you sons of a sorceress, adulterous, wanton race!  Of whom do you make sport, at whom do you open wide your mouth, and put out your tongue?  Are you not a rebellious children, a worthless race;” (Isaiah 57:3-4 NAB)

Bible Quote for September 15

Two Killed for Strange Fire

And Nadab and Abihu died before Jehovah, when they offered strange fire before Jehovah, in the wilderness of Sinai, and they had no children. (Numbers 3:4 ASV)

Bible Quotes for September 14

Young Widows are Bad News

The younger widows should not be on the list [for financial support from the Church], because their physical desires will overpower their devotion to Christ and they will want to remarry.  Then they would be guilty of breaking their previous pledge.  Besides, they are likely to become lazy and spend their time gossiping from house to house, getting into other people’s business and saying things they shouldn’t.  So I advise these younger widows to marry again, have children, and take care of their own homes.  Then the enemy will not be able to say anything against them.  For I am afraid that some of them have already gone astray and now follow Satan. (1 Timothy 5:11-15 NLT)

Bible Quote for September 13

God Kills Innocent Kids

While he was still speaking, another messenger arrived with this news: “Your sons and daughters were feasting in their oldest brother’s home.  Suddenly, a powerful wind [sent by God] swept in from the desert and hit the house on all sides.  The house collapsed, and all your children are dead.  I am the only one who escaped to tell you.” (Job 1:18-19 NLT)

Bible Quote for September 12

Nations Saved for Target Practice

The LORD left certain nations in the land to test those Israelites who had not participated in the wars of Canaan.  He did this to teach warfare to generations of Israelites who had no experience in battle.  These were the nations: the Philistines (those living under the five Philistine rulers), all the Canaanites, the Sidonians, and the Hivites living in the hill country of Lebanon from Mount Baal-hermon to Lebo-hamath.  These people were left to test the Israelites – to see whether they would obey the commands the LORD had given to their ancestors through Moses. (Judges 3:1-4 NLT)

Bible Quotes for September 11

Destroy Towns of Nonbelievers

“Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods.  In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully.  If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock.  Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it.  Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God.  That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt.  Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction.  Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you.  He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors.  “The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him.” (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)

Bible Quote for September 10

Murder in Gods Name

Solomon heard that Shimei had left Jerusalem and had gone to Gath and returned.  So he sent for Shimei and demanded, “Didn’t I make you swear by the LORD and warn you not to go anywhere else, or you would surely die?  And you replied, ‘The sentence is fair; I will do as you say.’  Then why haven’t you kept your oath to the LORD and obeyed my command?”  The king also said to Shimei, “You surely remember all the wicked things you did to my father, King David.  May the LORD punish you for them.  But may I receive the LORD’s rich blessings, and may one of David’s descendants always sit on this throne.”  Then, at the king’s command, Benaiah son of Jehoiada took Shimei outside and killed him. So the kingdom was now firmly in Solomon’s grip. (1 Kings 2:41-46 NLT)

Bible Quotes for September 9

Circumcise Your Slaves

God said to Abraham, “As for you, you shall keep my covenant, you and your offspring after you throughout their generations.  This is my covenant, which you shall keep, between me and you and your offspring after you: Every male among you shall be circumcised.  You shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskins, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and you.  Throughout your generations every male among you shall be circumcised when he is eight days old, including the slave born in your house and the one bought with your money from any foreigner who is not of your offspring.  Both the slave born in your house and the one bought with your money must be circumcised.  So shall my covenant be in your flesh an everlasting covenant. (Genesis 17:9-13 NRS)

Bible Quote for September 6

Be Slaves of Babylon

By my great power I have made the earth and all its people and every animal.  I can give these things of mine to anyone I choose.  Now I will give your countries to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, who is my servant.  I have put everything, even the wild animals, under his control.  All the nations will serve him and his son and his grandson until his time is up.  But then many nations and great kings will conquer and rule over Babylon.  So you must submit to Babylon’s king and serve him; put your neck under Babylon’s yoke!  I will punish any nation that refuses to be his slave, says the LORD.  I will send war, famine, and disease upon that nation until Babylon has conquered it. (Jeremiah 27:5-8 NLT)

Bible Quote for September 5

Men with Long Hair are a Disgrace

Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him, but if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her?  For her hair is given to her for a covering. (1 Corinthians 11:14-15 NAS)

(P.S.  Every painting of Jesus that I have seen has him with long hair.)

Bible Quotes for September 4

Women are Subordinate to Men

But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ.  Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces his head.  But every woman who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying disgraces her head, for she is one and the same as the woman whose head is shaved.  For if a woman does not cover her head, let her also have her hair cut off; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, let her cover her head.  For a man ought not to have his head covered, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.  For man does not originate from woman, but woman from man; for indeed man was not created for the woman’s sake, but woman for the man’s sake.  Therefore the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. (1 Corinthians 11:3-10 NAS)

Bible Quote for September 3

Children Punished for Their Father’s Sins

Please, Lord, prove that your power is as great as you have claimed it to be.  For you said, “The LORD is slow to anger and rich in unfailing love, forgiving every kind of sin and rebellion.  Even so he does not leave sin unpunished, but he punishes the children for the sins of their parents to the third and fourth generations.” (Numbers 14:17-18 NLT)

Bible Quote for September 2

Plagues for Nonbelieving Nations

And the LORD will send a plague on all the nations that fought against Jerusalem.  Their people will become like walking corpses, their flesh rotting away.  Their eyes will shrivel in their sockets, and their tongues will decay in their mouths.  On that day they will be terrified, stricken by the LORD with great panic.  They will fight against each other in hand-to-hand combat; Judah, too, will be fighting at Jerusalem.  The wealth of all the neighboring nations will be captured – great quantities of gold and silver and fine clothing.  This same plague will strike the horses, mules, camels, donkeys, and all the other animals in the enemy camps.  In the end, the enemies of Jerusalem who survive the plague will go up to Jerusalem each year to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Shelters.  And any nation anywhere in the world that refuses to come to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, will have no rain.  And if the people of Egypt refuse to attend the festival, the LORD will punish them with the same plague that he sends on the other nations who refuse to go.  Egypt and the other nations will all be punished if they don’t go to celebrate the festival. (Zechariah 14:12-19 NLT)
