Lot lifted his eyes and saw all the plain of Jordan, that it
was well watered everywhere (before the Lord destroyed
Sodom and Gomorrah) like the garden of the Lord.
Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan.
Righteous Lot … that righteous man.
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. § Remember Lot’s wife.
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? … Therefore “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean.” § Do not be partakers with them. For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light … finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.

It may be that the Lord will be with me, and I shall
be able to drive them out as the Lord said.
He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” § I will go in the strength of the Lord God; I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only.
The work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness, and assurance forever.
Stand …, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness… For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. § The Lord is with you! Go in this might of yours.
