Exodus 20:13 13 "You shall not murder.
Psalm 139:13-16 13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. 14 I praise you
because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was
not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them
came to be.

Genesis 1:26-28 26 Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over
the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals and over all the creatures
that move along the ground." 27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill

put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.
1 Corinthians 10:23 The Believer's Freedom 23 "I have the right to do anything," you say--but not everything is
beneficial. "I have the right to do anything"--but not everything is constructive.

Exodus 20:14 14 "You shall not commit adultery."
1 Corinthians 6:18-20 18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but
whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy

Therefore honour God with your bodies.
1 Thessalonians 4:4-6 4 that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and
honourable, 5 not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; 6 and that in this matter no one should
wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister. The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told
you and warned you before.

Mark 10:2-12
Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?" 3 "What did Moses
command you?" he replied. 4 They said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her
away." 5 "It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law," Jesus replied. 6 "But at the
