the law
Isaiah 8:16
Bind up the testimony, seal the teaching among my disciples.
Luke 10:26
He said to him, "What is written in the law? How do you read?"
Luke 16:29-31
29
But Abraham said, `They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.'
30
And he said, `No, father Abraham; but if some one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.'
31
He said to him, `If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be convinced if some one should rise from the dead.'"
John 5:39
yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.
John 5:46
But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?"
John 5:47
Acts 17:11
Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessaloni'ca, for they received the word with all eagerness, examining the scriptures daily to see if these things were so.
Galatians 3:8-29
8
And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, "In you shall all the nations be blessed."
9
So then, those who are men of faith are blessed with Abraham who had faith.
10
For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, "Cursed be every one who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, and do them."
11
Now it is evident that no man is justified before God by the law; for "He who through faith is righteous shall live";
12
but the law does not rest on faith, for "He who does them shall live by them."
13
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us--for it is written, "Cursed be every one who hangs on a tree"--
14
that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
15
To give a human example, brethren: no one annuls even a man's will, or adds to it, once it has been ratified.
16
Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, "And to offsprings," referring to many; but, referring to one, "And to your offspring," which is Christ.
17
This is what I mean: the law, which came four hundred and thirty years afterward, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to make the promise void.
18
For if the inheritance is by the law, it is no longer by promise; but God gave it to Abraham by a promise.
19
Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made; and it was ordained by angels through an intermediary.
20
Now an intermediary implies more than one; but God is one.
21
Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not; for if a law had been given which could make alive, then righteousness would indeed be by the law.
22
But the scripture consigned all things to sin, that what was promised to faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.
23
Now before faith came, we were confined under the law, kept under restraint until faith should be revealed.
24
So that the law was our custodian until Christ came, that we might be justified by faith.
25
But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a custodian;
26
for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith.
27
For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
29
And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.
Galatians 4:21
Tell me, you who desire to be under law, do you not hear the law?
Galatians 4:22
For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by a slave and one by a free woman.
2 Timothy 3:15-17
15
and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings which are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
16
All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
17
that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
2 Peter 1:19
And we have the prophetic word made more sure. You will do well to pay attention to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

Isaiah 30:8-11
8
And now, go, write it before them on a tablet, and inscribe it in a book, that it may be for the time to come as a witness for ever.
9
For they are a rebellious people, lying sons, sons who will not hear the instruction of the LORD;
10
who say to the seers, "See not"; and to the prophets, "Prophesy not to us what is right; speak to us smooth things, prophesy illusions,
11
leave the way, turn aside from the path, let us hear no more of the Holy One of Israel."

And he said to them, "You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God, in order to keep your tradition!

Claiming to be wise, they became fools,
