Bible Quotes

For you will not abandon my soul to Hades, or let your Holy One see corruption.
(Acts 2:27) ESV 

And as for the fact that he raised him from the dead, no more to return to corruption, he has spoken in this way, “‘I will give you the holy and sure blessings of David.’ Therefore he says also in another psalm, “‘You will not let your Holy One see corruption.’ For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep and was laid with his fathers and saw corruption, but he whom God raised up did not see corruption.
(Acts 13:34-37) ESV 

That the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.

They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved.
(2 Peter 2:19) ESV

Corruption and the Bible

The HOLY BIBLE tells us in Proverbs 29:4 “.. but one who is greedy for bribes tears it down”. The people who do the corruption are not poor, they have all sufficiency but they are greed for money and keep on accumulating it. They don’t know the LORD removes the wealth they earned. The HOLY BIBLE tells us in Proverbs 10:3 ".. but he casteth away the substance of the wicked". When a person leaves his wealth earned by corruption to his descendents, he not only leaves the wealth for his descendents but also the curse he brought with it. The HOLY BIBLE tells us in Proverbs 15:6, ".. but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble."

The HOLY BIBLE tells us in Proverbs 17:23, “A wicked man accepts a bribe in secret to pervert the course of justice”. In many third world countries the increase in lawlessness is because of bribe. The LORD commanded in Exodus 23:28, “Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds those who see and twists the words of the righteous.”

In the HOLY BIBLE we see an honest Judge named Samuel. He was not only a Judge but also a ruler. He was also a Prophet of the LORD. He challenged the people, "Behold, here I am: witness against me before the LORD, and before his anointed: whose ox have I taken? or whose ass have I taken? or whom have I defrauded? whom have I oppressed? or of whose hand have I received any bribe to blind mine eyes therewith? and I will restore it you." 1 Samuel 12:3

In the HOLY BIBLE, we see another administrator; a tax collector named Zacchaeus, who lived when Romans occupied Judah. The tax collectors were not liked by the Jews at that time and they were treated like traitors. When our LORD JESUS CHRIST entered the house of Zacchaeus, Zacchaeus repented for his sins and said, “And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.” Luke 19:8. Once Zacchaeus repented and confessed his sins to the LORD JESUS CHRIST, the HOLY BIBLE tells us, “And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.“ Luke 19:9

Luke 19:9 tells us that Zacchaeus did two things to be saved. First, he accepted JESUS CHRIST as LORD of his life. The HOLY BIBLE tells us in Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Second, Zacchaeus confessed his sins to the LORD JESUS CHRIST. The HOLY BIBLE tells us in 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Also the HOLY BIBLE tells us in 1 John 1:7, “…the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”5
