  • Jeremiah 5:7-9
    "How shall I pardon you for this?
    Your children have forsaken Me
    And sworn by those that are not gods.
    When I had fed them to the full,
    Then they committed adultery
    And assembled themselves by troops in the harlots' houses.
    They were like well-fed lusty stallions;
    Every one neighed after his neighbor's wife.
    Shall I not punish them for these things?" says the LORD.
    "And shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?

     
  • Hosea 4:1-2
    Hear the word of the LORD,
    You children of Israel,
    For the LORD brings a charge against the inhabitants of the land:
    "There is no truth or mercy
    Or knowledge of God in the land.
    By swearing and lying,
    Killing and stealing and committing adultery,
    They break all restraint,
    With bloodshed upon bloodshed.

     
  • Hosea 4:11-14
    "Harlotry, wine, and new wine enslave the heart.
    My people ask counsel from their wooden idols,
    And their staff informs them.
    For the spirit of harlotry has caused them to stray,
    And they have played the harlot against their God.
    They offer sacrifices on the mountaintops,
    And burn incense on the hills,
    Under oaks, poplars, and terebinths,
    Because their shade is good.
    Therefore your daughters commit harlotry,
    And your brides commit adultery.
    "I will not punish your daughters when they commit harlotry,
    Nor your brides when they commit adultery;
    For the men themselves go apart with harlots,
    And offer sacrifices with a ritual harlot.
    Therefore people who do not understand will be trampled.

     
  • Malachi 2:14-16
    Yet you say, "For what reason?"
    Because the LORD has been witness
    Between you and the wife of your youth,
    With whom you have dealt treacherously;
    Yet she is your companion
    And your wife by covenant.
    But did He not make them one,
    Having a remnant of the Spirit?
    And why one?
    He seeks godly offspring.
    Therefore take heed to your spirit,
    And let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth.
    "For the LORD God of Israel says
    That He hates divorce,
    For it covers one's garment with violence,"
    Says the LORD of hosts.
    "Therefore take heed to your spirit,
    That you do not deal treacherously."

     
  • Matthew 5:27-30
    "You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not commit adultery.' But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
     
  • Matthew 19:3-9
    The Pharisees also came to Him, testing Him, and saying to Him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?” And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who madethem at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” They said to Him, “Why then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?” He said to them, “Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery.”
     
  • 2 Samuel 12:9-14
    Why have you despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in His sight? You have killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword; you have taken his wife to be your wife, and have killed him with the sword of the people of Ammon. Now therefore, the sword shall never depart from your house, because you have despised Me, and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.' Thus says the LORD: 'Behold, I will raise up adversity against you from your own house; and I will take your wives before your eyes and give them to your neighbor, and he shall lie with your wives in the sight of this sun. For you did it secretly, but I will do this thing before all Israel, before the sun.'" So David said to Nathan, "I have sinned against the LORD." And Nathan said to David, "The LORD also has put away your sin; you shall not die. However, because by this deed you have given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also who is born to you shall surely die."

    By departing from the LORD.'

    Like an oven heated by a baker—

  • Romans 1:24-29
    Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,
     
  • 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

  • 2 Samuel 20:3

    Lest I strip her naked
    And expose her, as in the day she was born,
    And make her like a wilderness,
    And set her like a dry land,
    And slay her with thirst.
    ' I will not have mercy on her children,
    For they are the children of harlotry.
    For their mother has played the harlot;
    She who conceived them has behaved shamefully.
    For she said, 'I will go after my lovers,
    Who give me my bread and my water,
    My wool and my linen,
    My oil and my drink.'
    “ Therefore, behold,
    I will hedge up your way with thorns,
    And wall her in,
    So that she cannot find her paths.
    She will chase her lovers,
    But not overtake them;
    Yes, she will seek them, but not find them.
    Then she will say,
    ‘ I will go and return to my first husband,
    For then it was better for me than now.’

    To defile My holy name.
