Blog Entry: Well.  This is the last on Respect.  Here we go: 1 Timothy 3:2-11:  An overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money.  He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity   (but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?),   and not a new convert, so that he will not become conceited and fall into the condemnation incurred by the devil.   And he must have a good reputation with thoseoutside the church , so that he will not fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. Deacons likewise must be men of dignity, not double-tongued, or addicted to much wine or found of sordid gain, but holding to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience.  These men must also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach.  Women must likewise be dignified, not malicious gossips, but temperate, faithful in all things. 1 Samuel 26:9-11:  But David said to Abishai, "Do not destroy him, for who can stretch out his hand against the Lord's anointed and be without guilt?"  David also said, "As the Lord lives, surely the Lord will strike him, or his day will come that he dies, or he will go down into battle and perish.  The Lord forbid that I should stretch out my hand against the Lord's anointed; but now please take the spear that is at his head and the jug of water, and let us go. 1 Samuel 24:1-7:   Now when Saul returned from pursuing the Philistines, he was told, saying, “Behold, David is in the wilderness of Engedi.”   Then Saul took three thousand chosen men from all Israel and went to seek David and his men in front of the Rocks of the Wild Goats.   He came to the sheepfolds on the way, where there was a cave; and Saul went in to relieve himself. Now David and his men were sitting in the inner recesses of the cave. 4 The men of David said to him, “Behold, thisis the day of which the Lord said to you, ‘Behold; I am about to give your enemy into your hand, and you shall do to him as it seems good to you.’” Then David arose and cut off the edge of Saul’s robe secretly.   It came about afterward that David’s conscience bothered him because he had cut off the edge of Saul’s robe .   So he said to his men, “Far be it from me because of the Lord that I should do this thing to my lord, the Lord’s anointed, to stretch out my hand against him, since he is the Lord’s anointed.”   David persuaded his men with these words and did not allow them to rise up against Saul. And Saul arose, left the cave, and went on his way. 2 Kings 3:14:  Elisha said, "As the Lord of hosts lives, before whom I stand, were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, I would not look at you nor see you. Romans 13:1-7:  Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.   Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves.   For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same;   for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who bringswrathon the one who practices evil.   Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also for conscience’ sake.   For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing.   Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due ; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor. 1 Thessalonians 5:12:  But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction. Hebrews 13:17:  Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account.  Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you. Leviticus 19:32:  You shall rise up before the grayheaded and honor the aged, and you shall revere your God; I am the Lord. Job 32:4-7:   Now Elihu had waited to speak to Job because they were years older than he.   And when Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of the three men his anger burned.  So Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite spoke out and said,  "I am young in years and you are old; Therefore I was shy and afraid to tell you what I think.  "I though age should speak And increased years should teach wisdom." Lamentations 5:12:  Princes were hung by their hands; Elders were not respected. 1 Timothy 5:1-2:  Do not sharply rebuke an older man, but rather appeal to him as a father, to the younger men as brothers, the older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, in all purity. Well, that it.  74 verses in total.  All about  respect, though the word "respect" was found only in a few.  I'm wondering now.  Will there be a change in those who  have been reading this? I'm going to repost the Url of the site, where I got all these verses.  I hope this time, that the URL works: bible.knowing-jesus.com/topics/Respect,-For-Human-Beings God Bless!
