Be not deceived : neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you : but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Page 11 - He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of th stocks; till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.
Page 73 - For, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and every woman her own husband...
Page 65 - For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil: but her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
