Temptation Bible Verses
God is our refuge and strength,
always ready to help in times of trouble.
As soon as I pray, you answer me;
you encourage me by giving me strength.
Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God.
May your gracious Spirit lead me forward
on a firm footing.
My child, if sinners entice you,
turn your back on them!
My child, don’t go along with them!
Stay far away from their paths.
Don’t do as the wicked do,
and don’t follow the path of evildoers.
Don’t even think about it; don’t go that way.
Turn away and keep moving.
Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give
in to temptation. For the spirit is willing,
but the body is weak.
There he told them, “Pray that you
will not give in to temptation.”
Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer
evil by doing good.
God blesses those who patiently endure
testing and temptation. Afterward they will
receive the crown of life that God has promised
to those who love him.
So humble yourselves before God.
Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
