When he was about to enter Egypt, he said to his wife Sarai, "Look, I know what a beautiful woman you are.
When the Egyptians see you, they will say, 'This is his wife.' They will kill me but let you live.
Please say you're my sister so it will go well for me because of you, and my life will be spared on your account."
So Isaac settled in Gerar.
When the men of the place asked about his wife, he said, "She is my sister," for he was afraid to say "my wife," [thinking], "The men of the place will kill me on account of Rebekah, for she is a beautiful woman."
Again he asked, "Are you really my son Esau?" And he replied, "I am."
There is certainly no righteous man on the earth who does good and never sins.
Dead flies make a perfumer's oil ferment and stink; so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
Your boasting is not good. Don't you know that a little yeast permeates the whole batch of dough?
But be careful that this right of yours in no way becomes a stumbling block to the weak.
Do not be deceived: "Bad company corrupts good morals."
Why has your heart misled you, and why do your eyes flash
You know how, when you were pagans, you were led to dumb idols-- being led astray.
Then we will no longer be little children, tossed by the waves and blown around by every wind of teaching, by human cunning with cleverness in the techniques of deceit.
Don't be led astray by various kinds of strange teachings; for it is good for the heart to be established by grace and not by foods, since those involved in them have not benefited.
