The Lord said to Moses, 2 “Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them: ‘Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.
11 Who among the gods is like you, Lord? Who is like you— majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?
1 Samuel 2:2
2 “There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.
8 Among the gods there is none like you, Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.
48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
1 John 1:5
5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;
13 Your eyes are too pure to look on evil; you cannot tolerate wrongdoing.
12 It is unthinkable that God would do wrong, that the Almighty would pervert justice.
1 Peter 1:13-18
13 Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” 17 Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. 18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
