18 Then came unto Him the Sadducees, who say that there is no resurrection. And they asked Him, saying, 19 "Master, Moses wrote unto us that if a man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, then his brother should take his wife and raise up seed unto his brother. 20 Now there were seven brethren; and the first took a wife, and dying, left no seed. 21 And the second took her and died, neither leaving any seed. And the third likewise. 22 So the seven had her and left no seed. Last of all the woman died also. 23 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be, for all seven had her for a wife?" 24 And Jesus answering, said unto them,
2 Corinthians 13:7-14
7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil, not that we should appear to be approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates. 8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth. 9 For we are glad when we are weak and ye are strong. And this also we wish: even your perfection. 10 Therefore I write these things being absent, lest, were I present, I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me for edification, and not for destruction.
11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
12 Greet one another with a holy kiss. 13 All the saints salute you.
14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all.
1 Kings 9:1-9
1 And it came to pass, when Solomon had finished the building of the house of the LORD and the king's house, and all Solomon's desire which he was pleased to do, 2 that the LORD appeared to Solomon the second time, as He had appeared unto him at Gibeon. 3 And the LORD said unto him, "I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication that thou hast made before Me. I have hallowed this house which thou hast built, to put My name there forever; and Mine eyes and Mine heart shall be there perpetually. 4 And if thou wilt walk before Me as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep My statutes and My judgments, 5 then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised to David thy father, saying, `There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel.' 6 But if ye shall at all turn from following Me, ye or your children, and will not keep My commandments and My statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods and worship them, 7 then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them, and this house which I have hallowed for My name will I cast out of My sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people. 8 And at this house, which is high, every one who passeth by it shall be astonished and shall hiss; and they shall say, `Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land and to this house?' 9 And they shall answer, `Because they forsook the LORD their God who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have worshiped them and served them; therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.'"
