and whose speech is gracious – the king will be his friend.

a pure heart.

“I baptize you with water, for repentance, but the one coming after me is more powerful than I am – I am not worthy to carry
his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clean out his
threshing floor and will gather his wheat into the storehouse, but the chaff he will burn up with inextinguishable fire.”
And a leper approached, and bowed low before him, saying, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” He stretched

The Son is the radiance of his glory and the representation of his essence, and he sustains all things by his powerful
word, and so when he had accomplished cleansing for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith excellence, to excellence, knowledge; to knowledge, selfcontrol;
to self-control, perseverance; to perseverance, godliness; to godliness, brotherly affection; to brotherly affection,
unselfish love. For if these things are really yours and are continually increasing, they will keep you from
becoming ineffective and unproductive in your pursuit of knowing our Lord Jesus Christ more intimately. But concerning
the one who lacks such things – he is blind. That is to say, he is nearsighted, since he has forgotten about the cleansing of
his past sins.
2 Peter 1:5-9
and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in the assurance that faith
brings, because we have had our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed in pure water.
Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that could defile the
body and the spirit, and thus accomplish holiness out of reverence for God.
2 Corinthians 7:1
Husbands, love your wives just as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her to sanctify her by cleansing her with the
washing of the water by the word,
He gave himself for us to set us free from every kind of lawlessness and to purify for himself a people who are truly
his, who are eager to do good.
For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy, because I promised you in marriage to one husband, to present you as a
pure virgin to Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:2
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
And I pray this, that your love may abound even more and more in knowledge and every kind of insight so that you can
decide what is best, and thus be sincere and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that
comes through Jesus Christ to the glory and praise of God.
Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God without blemish
though you live in a crooked and perverse society, in which you shine as lights in the world by holding on to the word of life
so that on the day of Christ I will have a reason to boast that I did not run in vain nor labor in vain.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of respect, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is
lovely, whatever is commendable, if something is excellent or praiseworthy, think about these things. And what you learned
and received and heard and saw in me, do these things. And the God of peace will be with you.
All is pure to those who are pure. But to those who are corrupt and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their minds and
consciences are corrupted. They profess to know God but with their deeds they deny him, since they are detestable,
disobedient, and unfit for any good deed.
But give from your heart to those in need, and then everything will be clean for you.
You are clean already because of the word that I have spoken to you.
