7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and depart from evil. [The beginning of the fear of God is to depart from evil.]
13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil. I hate pride, arrogance, the evil way, and deceitfulness.
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.]
28 And to man he said, 'Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.'"
|Ezekiel 18:23||Isaiah 1:16|
16 Wash yourself, make yourself clean; put away the evil of your deeds from before my eyes. Cease doing evil!
|Romans 12:9 |
9 Let your love be without pretense or feigned. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
