Proverbs 16:6

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 6 By mercy and truth iniquity [sin] is purged [from the heart], and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil. [What truth purges evil to make you free of sin?—the word of truth that you hear spoken to you by the Lord. If you continue in my word, you are true disciples; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:31-32. In what word are you to continue or abide and obey?—the word that is within your heart to hear and obey, Rom 10:8, Deu 30:11-15. The beginning of the fear of God is to depart from evil.]

 7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you really are unleavened. For Christ our passover is sacrificed for us.

Titus 2:14

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity [lawless deeds, sin], and purify for himself a people who are his very own, zealous for good works.1 [Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh [the sinful nature] with its passions and desires [lusts and affections], Gal 5:24, to become pure. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27. From the Word of the Lord within: "If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me."]

1 Peter 1:22

 22 Purify your souls by obeying the truth into unfeigned love6 of the brothers, dearly loving one another fervently with a pure heart; [This has been mistranslated as having purified your souls. It is impossible to have purified your soul and still be without salvation; so they have yet to purify their souls. The original Greek Net Bible shows that "purify" in this verse is not past tense, it is present tense; and Footnote 5 in the original Greek Net Bible shows this verse to read "pure heart" in early manuscripts; later manuscripts eliminated the word "pure" to simply read "heart" not "pure heart."]

Acts 15:9

 9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.2 [Little by little each spoken word from Him that you hear is engrafted into your heart and imparts the life of God to you making you a little more pure.]

2 Corinthians 7:1

 1 Therefore having these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.1 [Richard Claridge, an outstanding early Quaker, profoundly wrote: "The real happiness of man consists in being truly religious, or holy, in our measures, as God is holy; for holiness and happiness are so nearly related, that the one cannot be, or subsist, without the other. Holiness is happiness begun, and happiness is holiness in perfection." From the Word of the Lord within: "There came a view that happiness and holiness are separable."]
