2 Chronicles 24:17-22
17
But after the death of Jehoiada the officials of Judah came and bowed down to the king, and the king listened to them.
18
They abandoned the house of the LORD, the God of their fathers, and served the Asherim and the idols; so wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem for this their guilt.
19
Yet He sent prophets to them to bring them back to the LORD; though they testified against them, they would not listen.
20
Then the Spirit of God came on Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest; and he stood above the people and said to them, "Thus God has said, 'Why do you transgress the commandments of the LORD and do not prosper? Because you have forsaken the LORD, He has also forsaken you.'"
21
So they conspired against him and at the command of the king they stoned him to death in the court of the house of the LORD.
22
Thus Joash the king did not remember the kindness which his father Jehoiada had shown him, but he murdered his son. And as he died he said, "May the LORD see and avenge!"
Psalm 36:3
The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit; He has ceased to be wise [and] to do good.
Psalm 81:11
"But My people did not listen to My voice, And Israel did not obey Me.
Psalm 81:12
"So I gave them over to the stubbornness of their heart, To walk in their own devices.
Psalm 125:5
But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways, The LORD will lead them away with the doers of iniquity. Peace be upon Israel.
Matthew 12:44
"Then it says, 'I will return to my house from which I came'; and when it comes, it finds [it] unoccupied, swept, and put in order.
Matthew 12:45
"Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation."
2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
9
[that is], the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,
10
and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.
11
For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false,
12
in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.
2 Peter 2:10-19
10
and especially those who indulge the flesh in [its] corrupt desires and despise authority. Daring, self-willed, they do not tremble when they revile angelic majesties,
11
whereas angels who are greater in might and power do not bring a reviling judgment against them before the Lord.
12
But these, like unreasoning animals, born as creatures of instinct to be captured and killed, reviling where they have no knowledge, will in the destruction of those creatures also be destroyed,
13
suffering wrong as the wages of doing wrong. They count it a pleasure to revel in the daytime. They are stains and blemishes, reveling in their deceptions, as they carouse with you,
14
having eyes full of adultery that never cease from sin, enticing unstable souls, having a heart trained in greed, accursed children;
15
forsaking the right way, they have gone astray, having followed the way of Balaam, the [son] of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
16
but he received a rebuke for his own transgression, [for] a mute donkey, speaking with a voice of a man, restrained the madness of the prophet.
17
These are springs without water and mists driven by a storm, for whom the black darkness has been reserved.
18
For speaking out arrogant [words] of vanity they entice by fleshly desires, by sensuality, those who barely escape from the ones who live in error,
19
promising them freedom while they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved.
Jude 1:8-13
8
Yet in the same way these men, also by dreaming, defile the flesh, and reject authority, and revile angelic majesties.
9
But Michael the archangel, when he disputed with the devil and argued about the body of Moses, did not dare pronounce against him a railing judgment, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!"
10
But these men revile the things which they do not understand; and the things which they know by instinct, like unreasoning animals, by these things they are destroyed.
11
Woe to them! For they have gone the way of Cain, and for pay they have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.
12
These are the men who are hidden reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you without fear, caring for themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, doubly dead, uprooted;
13
wild waves of the sea, casting up their own shame like foam; wandering stars, for whom the black darkness has been reserved forever.
