"Come, gather together, and draw near, you fugitives of the nations. Those who carry their wooden idols, and pray to a god who cannot save, have no knowledge.
Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare for holy war; rouse the warriors; let all the men of war advance and attack!
Hammer your plowshares into swords and your pruning knives into spears. Let even the weakling say: I am a warrior.
Come quickly, all you surrounding nations; gather yourselves. Bring down Your warriors there, LORD.
I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.
When the LORD first spoke to Hosea, He said this to him: Go and marry a promiscuous wife and [have] children of promiscuity, for the whole land has been promiscuous by abandoning the LORD.
When he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to the place of his baptism, he said to them, "Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?
Brood of vipers! How can you speak good things when you are evil? For the mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart.
An evil and adulterous generation wants a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah." Then He left them and went away.
"Snakes! Brood of vipers! How can you escape being condemned to hell?
He then said to the crowds who came out to be baptized by him, "Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?

You're doing what your father does." "We weren't born of sexual immorality," they said. "We have one Father-- God."
Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love Me, because I came from God and I am here. For I didn't come on My own, but He sent Me.
Why don't you understand what I say? Because you cannot listen to My word.
You are of your father the Devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he speaks from his own nature, because he is a liar and the father of liars.
Adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? So whoever wants to be the world's friend becomes God's enemy.
This is how God's children-- and the Devil's children-- are made evident. Whoever does not do what is right is not of God, especially the one who does not love his brother.
Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me: "Come, I will show you the judgment of the notorious prostitute who sits on many waters.
The kings of the earth committed sexual immorality with her, and those who live on the earth became drunk on the wine of her sexual immorality."
So he carried me away in the Spirit to a desert. I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names, having seven heads and 10 horns.
The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, adorned with gold, precious stones, and pearls. She had a gold cup in her hand filled with everything vile and with the impurities of her prostitution.
On her forehead a cryptic name was written: BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE VILE THINGS OF THE EARTH
