    and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man in anguish over the debauched lifestyle of lawless men,( for while he lived among them day after day, that righteous man was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)– if so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from their trials, and to reserve the unrighteous for punishment at the day of judgment,
  • 2 Peter 2 5
    and if he did not spare the ancient world, but did protect Noah, a herald of righteousness, along with seven others, when God brought a flood on an ungodly world,

    For who concedes you any superiority? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you received it, why do you boast as though you did not?
  • 2 Chronicles 33 12-2 Chronicles 33 24
    In his pain Manasseh asked the LORD his God for mercy and truly humbled himself before the God of his ancestors.When he prayed to the LORD, the LORD responded to him and answered favorably his cry for mercy. The LORD brought him back to Jerusalem to his kingdom. Then Manasseh realized that the LORD is the true God.After this Manasseh built up the outer wall of the City of David on the west side of the Gihon in the valley to the entrance of the Fish Gate and all around the terrace; he made it much higher. He placed army officers in all the fortified cities in Judah.He removed the foreign gods and images from the LORD’s temple and all the altars he had built on the hill of the LORD’s temple and in Jerusalem; he threw them outside the city.He erected the altar of the LORD and offered on it peace offerings and thank offerings. He told the people of Judah to serve the LORD God of Israel.The people continued to offer sacrifices at the high places, but only to the LORD their God.The rest of the events of Manasseh’s reign, including his prayer to his God and the words the prophets spoke to him in the name of the LORD God of Israel, are recorded in the Annals of the Kings of Israel.The Annals of the Prophets include his prayer, give an account of how the LORD responded to it, record all his sins and unfaithful acts, and identify the sites where he built high places and erected Asherah poles and idols before he humbled himself.Manasseh passed away and was buried in his palace. His son Amon replaced him as king.Amon was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned for two years in Jerusalem.He did evil in the sight of the LORD, just like his father Manasseh had done. He offered sacrifices to all the idols his father Manasseh had made, and worshiped them.He did not humble himself before the LORD as his father Manasseh had done. Amon was guilty of great sin.His servants conspired against him and killed him in his palace.
  • Luke 23:39-43
    One of the criminals who was hanging there railed at him, saying,“ Aren’t you the Christ? Save yourself and us!”But the other rebuked him, saying,“ Don’t you fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?And we rightly so, for we are getting what we deserve for what we did, but this man has done nothing wrong.”Then he said,“ Jesus, remember me when you come in your kingdom.”And Jesus said to him,“ I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.”
