SALVATION AND WORKS
PSA 49:7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a
ransom for him:
PSA 49:8 (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for
PSA 127:1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it:
except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
PSA 127:2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread
of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
ECC 1:14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold,
all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
ISA 43:26 Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou
mayest be justified.
ISA 57:12 I will declare thy righteousness, and thy works; for they shall not
ISA 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as
filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind,
have taken us away.
EZE 7:19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be
removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the
day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill
their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.
EZE 33:12 Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The
righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his
transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in
the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able
to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.
EZE 33:13 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he
trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses
shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall
die for it.
EZE 33:14 Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn
from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right;
EZE 33:15 If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk
in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he
shall not die.
EZE 33:16 None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him:
he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.
EZE 33:17 Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not equal:
but as for them, their way is not equal.
EZE 33:18 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth
iniquity, he shall even die thereby.
EZE 33:19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is
lawful and right, he shall live thereby.
DAN 9:18 O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our
desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our
supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.
MAT 5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the
righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the
kingdom of heaven.
LUK 17:7 But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say
unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat?
LUK 17:8 And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and
gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou
shalt eat and drink?
LUK 17:9 Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were
commanded him? I trow not.
LUK 17:10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are
commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was
our duty to do.
LUK 18:9 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves
that they were righteous, and despised others:
LUK 18:10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the
other a publican.
LUK 18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee,
that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as
LUK 18:12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
LUK 18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his
eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a
LUK 18:14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the
other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth
himself shall be exalted.
ACT 13:39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which
ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
ROM 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in
his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
ROM 3:21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being
witnessed by the law and the prophets;
ROM 3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto
all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
ROM 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
ROM 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in
ROM 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his
blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past,
through the forbearance of God;
ROM 3:26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be
just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
ROM 3:27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay:
but by the law of faith.
ROM 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the
deeds of the law.
ROM 3:29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes,
of the Gentiles also:
ROM 3:30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith,
and uncircumcision through faith.
ROM 4:1 What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the
flesh, hath found?
ROM 4:2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but
not before God.
ROM 4:3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted
unto him for righteousness.
ROM 4:4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of
ROM 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the
ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
ROM 4:6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God
imputeth righteousness without works,
ROM 4:7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins
ROM 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh,
God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned
sin in the flesh:
ROM 9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of
God that sheweth mercy.
ROM 9:31 But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not
attained to the law of righteousness.
ROM 9:32 Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the
works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;
ROM 11:6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no
more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is
no more work.
1CO 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not
charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
1CO 13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries,
and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove
mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
1CO 13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give
my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
GAL 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by
the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might
be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the
works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
GAL 2:19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.
GAL 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the
law, then Christ is dead in vain.
GAL 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it
is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are
written in the book of the law to do them.
GAL 3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is
evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
GAL 3:12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live
GAL 3:21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there
had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should
have been by the law.
GAL 4:9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how
turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be
GAL 4:10 Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.
GAL 4:11 I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.
GAL 5:2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall
profit you nothing.
GAL 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified
by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
GAL 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor
uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
GAL 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
GAL 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor
uncircumcision, but a new creature.
EPH 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it
is the gift of God:
PHI 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and
rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.
PHI 3:4 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man
thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:
PHI 3:5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of
Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;
PHI 3:6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness
which is in the law, blameless.
PHI 3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
PHI 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of
the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all
things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
PHI 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the
law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is
of God by faith:
COL 2:20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world,
why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
COL 2:21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
COL 2:22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and
doctrines of men?
COL 2:23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and
humility, and neglecting of the body: not in any honour to the satisfying of the
2TI 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to
our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in
Christ Jesus before the world began,
TIT 3:4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man
TIT 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his
mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy
HEB 4:3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have
sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were
finished from the foundation of the world.
HEB 4:4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And
God did rest the seventh day from all his works.
HEB 4:5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.
HEB 4:6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to
whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:
HEB 4:7 Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so
long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your
HEB 4:8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have
spoken of another day.
HEB 4:9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
HEB 4:10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own
works, as God did from his.
HEB 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go
on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead
works, and of faith toward God,
HEB 6:2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of
resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
HEB 9:1 Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service,
and a worldly sanctuary.
HEB 9:2 For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the
candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary.
HEB 9:3 And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest
HEB 9:4 Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round
about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that
budded, and the tables of the covenant;
HEB 9:5 And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we
cannot now speak particularly.
HEB 9:6 Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into
the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God.
HEB 9:7 But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not
without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:
HEB 9:8 The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all
was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:
HEB 9:9 Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered
both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect,
as pertaining to the conscience;
HEB 9:10 Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal
ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.
HEB 9:11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a
greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of
HEB 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he
entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
HEB 9:13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer
sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
HEB 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal
Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead
works to serve the living God?
JAM 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point,
he is guilty of all.
JAM 2:11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now
if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of
