Make no covenant with the men of those countries... Neither shalt thou take of their daughters a wife for thy son, lest after they themselves have committed fornication, they make thy sons also to commit fornication with their gods. (Ex. 34: 15, 16)

Neither shalt thou make marriages with them (the Chanaanites). Thou shalt not give thy daughter to his son, nor take his daughter for thy son: For she will turn away thy son from following me, that he may rather serve strange gods, and the wrath of the Lord will be kindled, and will quickly destroy thee. (Deut. 7: 3, 4)

But if you will embrace the errors of these nations that dwell among you, and make marriages with them, and join friendships: Know ye for a certainty that the Lord your God will not destroy them before your face, but they shall be a pit and a snare in your way, and a stumbling-block at your side, and stakes in your eyes, till he take you away and destroy you from off this excellent land, which he hath given you. (Jos. 23: 12, 13)

Then Samson went down to Thamnatha, and seeing there a woman of the daughters of the Philistines, He came up, and told his father and his mother, saying: I saw a woman in Thamnatha of the daughters of the Philistines: I beseech you, take her for me to wife. And his father and mother said to him: Is there no woman among the daughters of thy brethren, or among all my people, that thou wilt take a wife of the Philistines, who are uncircumcised? And Samson said to his father: Take this woman for me, for she hath pleased my eyes. (Judges 14: 1-3)

Wherefore, as the Holy Ghost saith: Today, if you shall hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation; in the day of temptation, in the desert...

Now the serpent was more subtle than any of the beasts of the earth which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman: Why hath God commanded you, that you should not eat of every tree of paradise? And the woman answered him, saying: Of the fruit of the trees that are in paradise we do eat: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of paradise, God hath commanded us that we should not eat; and that we should not touch it, lest perhaps we die... And the woman saw that the tree was good to eat, and fair to the eyes, and delightful to behold: and she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave to her husband who did eat. (Gen. 3: 1-3, 6)

Go not up, for the Lord is not with you: lest you fall before your enemies. (Num. 14:42)

A hard heart shall fear evil at the last: and he that loveth danger, shall perish in it. (Ecclus. 3:27)

Look not upon a woman that hath a mind for many: lest thou fall into her snares. Use not much the company of her that is a dancer, and hearken not to her, lest thou perish by the force of her charms. Gaze not upon a maiden, lest her beauty be a stumbling-block to thee... Look not round about thee in the ways of the city, nor wander up and down in the streets thereof. Turn away thy face from a woman dressed up, and gaze not about upon another's beauty. For many have perished by the beauty of a woman, and hereby lust is enkindled as a fire... Many by admiring the beauty of another man's wife, have become reprobate, for her conversation burneth as fire. Sit not at all with another man's wife, nor repose upon the bed with her: And strive not with her over wine, lest thy heart decline towards her, and by thy blood thou fall into destruction. (Ecclus. 9: 3-5, 7-9, 11-13)

He that toucheth pitch, shall be defiled with it: and he that hath fellowship with the proud, shall put on pride. (Ecclus. 13:1)

Behold not everybody's beauty: and tarry not among women. (Ecclus. 42:12)

And if thy right eye scandalize thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee. For it is expedient for thee that one of thy members should perish, rather than that thy whole body be cast into hell. And if thy right hand scandalize thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is expedient for thee, that one of thy members should perish, rather than that thy whole body go into hell. (Matt. 5: 29, 30)


Cast me not off in the time of old age: when my strength shall fail, do not thou forsake me... And unto old age and gray hairs: O God, forsake me not. (Ps. 70: 9, 18)

But my horn shall be exalted like that of the unicorn: and my old age in plentiful mercy. (Ps. 91:11)

They (the just) shall still increase in a fruitful old age: and shall be well treated, that they may show, That the Lord our God is righteous, and there is no iniquity in him. (Ps. 91: 15, 16)

If a man live many years, and have rejoiced in them all, he must remember the darksome time, and the many days: which when they shall come, the things past shall be accused of vanity. (Ecclus. 11:8)

Remember thy Creator in the days of thy youth, before the time of affliction come and the years draw nigh, of which thou shalt say: They please me not: Before the sun, and the light, and the moon and the stars be darkened, and the clouds return after the rain: When the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall stagger, and the grinders shall be idle in a small number, and they that look through the holes shall be darkened: And they shall shut the doors in the street, when the grinder's voice shall be low, and they shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of music shall grow deaf. And they shall fear high things, and they shall be afraid in the way, the almond-tree shall flourish, the locust shall be made fat, and the caper-tree shall be destroyed: because man shall go into the house of his eternity, and the mourners shall go round about in the street. (Ecclus. 12: 1-5)

But speak thou the things that become sound doctrine: That the aged men be sober, chaste, prudent, sound in faith, in love, in patience. The aged women, in like manner, in holy attire, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teaching well. (Titus, 2: 1-3)

But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob, neither hast thou labored about me, O Israel. Thou hast not offered me the ram of thy holocaust, nor hast thou glorified me with thy victims: I have not caused thee to serve with oblations, nor wearied thee with incense. Thou hast brought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy victims. But thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thy iniquities. (Is. 43: 22-24)

I was a stranger, and you took me not in: naked, and you covered me not: sick and in prison, and you did not visit me. Then they also shall answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to thee? Then he shall answer them, saying: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it not to one of these least, neither did you do it to me. And these shall go into everlasting punishment. (Matt. 25: 41-46)
