1 Kings 9:6-9 But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep commandments and my statues which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them;

Then will I cut off Is’-ra-el 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 Is’-ra-el  shall be a proverb and a byword among all people;

And at this house, which is high, every one that passeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why hath the LORD done this unto this land, and to this house?

And they shall answer. Because they forsook the LORD their God, who brought forth their fathers out of the land of E’-gypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have worshiped them, and served them; therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.

1 Kings 11:1-13 But king Sol’o-mon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pha’-raoh, women of the Mo’-ab-ites. Am’-mon-ites, E’-dom-ites, Zi’-do’-ni-ans, and Hit-tites;

Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Is’-ra-el, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you; for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods; Sol’-o-mon clave unto these in love.

And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines; and his wives turned away his heart.

For it came to pass. when Sol’-o-mon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods; and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of Da’-vid his father.

For Sol’o-mon went after Ash’-to-reth the goddess of the Zi-do’-ni-ans, and after Mil’-com the abomination of the Am’-mon-ites.

And Sol-o-mon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did Da’-vid his father.

Then did Sol’-o-mom build an high place for Che’-mosh, the abomination of Mo’-ab,  in the hill that is before Je-ru’-sa-lem, and for Mo’-lech, the abomination of the children of Am’-mon.

And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods.

And the LORD was angry with Sol’-o-mon, because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Is’-ra-el, which had appeared unto him twice,

And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods; but he kept not that which the LORD commanded,

Wherefore the LORD said unto Sol’-o-mon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statues, which I have commanded thee. I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.

Notwithstanding in thy days I will not do it for Da’-vid  thy father’s sake; but I will rend it out of the hand of thy son.

Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; but will give one tribe to thy son for Da’-vid my servant’s sake, and for Je-ru’-sa-lem’s sake which I have chosen.

Acts 7:37-43 This is that Mo’ses, which said unto the children of Is’-ra-el, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.

This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Si’-na, and with our fathers; who received the lively oracles to give unto us:

To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into E’-gypt,

Saying unto Aa’-ron, Make us gods to go before us; for as for this Mo’-ses, which brought us out of the land of E’-gypt, we wot not what is become of him,

Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.

Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.

And with these sayings scarce restrained they the people, that they had not done sacrifice unto them.

2 Corinthians 11:1-3 Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly; and indeed bear with me.

For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy; for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

1 Timothy 4:1-5 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the later times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving;

For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
