1 Corinthians 10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should
be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all
passed through the sea; 2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the
cloud and in the sea; 3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 4
And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that
spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 5 But
with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were
overthrown in the wilderness. 6 Now these things were our examples,
to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also
lusted. 7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is
written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and
fell in one day three and twenty thousand. 9 Neither let us tempt
Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of
serpents. 10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and
were destroyed of the destroyer. 11 Now all these things happened
unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition,
upon whom the ends of the world are come. 12 Wherefore let him that
thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

2 Samuel 15:1 And it came to pass after this, that Absalom prepared
him chariots and horses, and fifty men to run before him. 2 And
Absalom rose up early, and stood beside the way of the gate: and it
was so , that when any man that had a controversy came to the king
for judgment, then Absalom called unto him, and said, Of what city
art thou? And he said, Thy servant is of one of the tribes of
Israel. 3 And Absalom said unto him, See, thy matters are good and
right; but there is no man deputed of the king to hear thee. 4
Absalom said moreover, Oh that I were made judge in the land, that
every man which hath any suit or cause might come unto me, and I
would do him justice! 5 And it was so , that when any man came nigh
to him to do him obeisance, he put forth his hand, and took him,
and kissed him. 6 And on this manner did Absalom to all Israel that
came to the king for judgment: so Absalom stole the hearts of the
men of Israel.

Rom. 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause
divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have
learned; and avoid them. 18 For they that are such serve not our
Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair
speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

Jude 1:16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own
lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words , having men's
persons in admiration because of advantage.

Col 2:4 And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with
enticing words. 5 For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I
with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the
stedfastness of your faith in Christ. 6 As ye have therefore
received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7 Rooted and
built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been
taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

Acts 20:26 Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure
from the blood of all men . 27 For I have not shunned to declare
unto you all the counsel of God. 28 Take heed therefore unto
yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost
hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath
purchased with his own blood. 29 For I know this, that after my
departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the
flock. 30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking
perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Jude 1:12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they
feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are
without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth,
without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

1 Tim 6: 3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome
words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine
which is according to godliness; 4 He is proud, knowing nothing,
but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh
envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings

2 Timothy 4:15 Of whom be thou ware also; for [because] he hath
greatly withstood our words.

2 Peter 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words
make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time
lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Numbers 16:1 Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the
son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the
son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men: 2 And they rose up before
Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and
fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of
renown: 3 And they gathered themselves together against Moses and
against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you,
seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the
LORD is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the
congregation of the LORD? 4 And when Moses heard it, he fell upon
his face: 5 And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company,
saying, Even to morrow the LORD will shew who are his, and who is
holy; and will cause him to come near unto him: even him whom he
hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him. 6 This do; Take
you censers, Korah, and all his company; 7 And put fire therein,
and put incense in them before the LORD to morrow: and it shall be
that the man whom the LORD doth choose, he shall be holy: ye take
too much upon you, ye sons of Levi. 8 And Moses said unto Korah,
Hear, I pray you, ye sons of Levi: 9 Seemeth it but a small thing
unto you, that the God of Israel hath separated you from the
congregation of Israel, to bring you near to himself to do the
service of the tabernacle of the LORD, and to stand before the
congregation to minister unto them? 10 And he hath brought thee
near to him, and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee: and
seek ye the priesthood also? 11 For which cause both thou and all
thy company are gathered together against the LORD: and what is
Aaron, that ye murmur against him? 12 And Moses sent to call Dathan
and Abiram, the sons of Eliab: which said, We will not come up: 13
Is it a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a land that
floweth with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, except
thou make thyself altogether a prince over us? 14 Moreover thou
hast not brought us into a land that floweth with milk and honey,
or given us inheritance of fields and vineyards: wilt thou put out
the eyes of these men? we will not come up 15 And Moses was very
wroth, and said unto the LORD, Respect not thou their offering: I
have not taken one ass from them, neither have I hurt one of them.
16 And Moses said unto Korah, Be thou and all thy company before
the LORD, thou, and they, and Aaron, to morrow: 17 And take every
man his censer, and put incense in them, and bring ye before the
LORD every man his censer, two hundred and fifty censers; thou
also, and Aaron, each of you his censer. 18 And they took every man
his censer, and put fire in them, and laid incense thereon, and
stood in the door of the tabernacle of the congregation with Moses
and Aaron. 19 And Korah gathered all the congregation against them
unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the glory
of the LORD appeared unto all the congregation. 20 And the LORD
spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, 21 Separate yourselves
from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment.
22 And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the
spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth
with all the congregation? 23 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
saying, 24 Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from
about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram. 25 And Moses
rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel
followed him. 26 And he spake unto the congregation, saying,
Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch
nothing of theirs, lest ye be consumed in all their sins. 27 So
they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on
every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood in the door
of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little
children. 28 And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that the LORD
hath sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them of
mine own mind. 29 If these men die the common death of all men, or
if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then the LORD
hath not sent me. 30 But if the LORD make a new thing, and the
earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain
unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall
understand that these men have provoked the LORD. 31 And it came to
pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the
ground clave asunder that was under them: 32 And the earth opened
her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men
that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods. 33 They, and all
that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the
earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the
congregation. 34 And all Israel that were round about them fled at
the cry of them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also.
35 And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two
hundred and fifty men that offered incense. 36 And the LORD spake
unto Moses, saying, 37 Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the
priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning, and scatter
thou the fire yonder; for they are hallowed. 38 The censers of
these sinners against their own souls, let them make them broad
plates for a covering of the altar: for they offered them before
the LORD, therefore they are hallowed: and they shall be a sign
unto the children of Israel. 39 And Eleazar the priest took the
brasen censers, wherewith they that were burnt had offered; and
they were made broad plates for a covering of the altar: 40 To be a
memorial unto the children of Israel, that no stranger, which is
not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense before the
LORD; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as the LORD said
to him by the hand of Moses. 41 But on the morrow all the
congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and
against Aaron, saying, Ye have killed the people of the LORD. 42
And it came to pass, when the congregation was gathered against
Moses and against Aaron, that they looked toward the tabernacle of
the congregation: and, behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory
of the LORD appeared. 43 And Moses and Aaron came before the
tabernacle of the congregation. 44 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
saying, 45 Get you up from among this congregation, that I may
consume them as in a moment. And they fell upon their faces. 46 And
Moses said unto Aaron, Take a censer, and put fire therein from off
the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto the
congregation, and make an atonement for them: for there is wrath
gone out from the LORD; the plague is begun. 47 And Aaron took as
Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of the congregation; and,
behold, the plague was begun among the people: and he put on
incense, and made an atonement for the people. 48 And he stood
between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed. 49 Now
they that died in the plague were fourteen thousand and seven
hundred, beside them that died about the matter of Korah. 50 And
Aaron returned unto Moses unto the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation: and the plague was stayed.

Titus 1:10 For there are many unruly [insubordinate, refractory]
and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses,
teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.
