അതു കൊണ്ടു നിങ്ങൾ ആണിന്റെയെങ്കിലും പെണ്ണിന്റെയെങ്കിലും സാദൃശ്യമോ,

Daniel 11:39

Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain.

അവൻ ഒരു അന്യദേവന്റെ ജനത്തെ കോട്ടകളുടെ കൊത്തളങ്ങളിന്മേൽ ആക്കിവേക്കും; അവനെ സ്വീകരിക്കുന്നവന്നു അവൻ മഹത്വം വർദ്ധിപ്പിക്കും; അവൻ അവരെ പലർക്കും അധിപതികളാക്കി ദേശത്തെ പ്രതിഫലമായി വിഭാഗിച്ചുകൊടുക്കും.

Isaiah 59:6

Their webs will not become garments, Nor will they cover themselves with their works; Their works are works of iniquity, And the act of violence is in their hands.

അവർ‍ നെയ്തതു വസ്ത്രത്തിന്നു കൊള്ളുകയില്ല; അവരുടെ പണി അവർ‍കൂ പുതപ്പാകയും ഇല്ല; അവരുടെ പ്രവൃത്തികൾ നീതികെട്ട പ്രവൃത്തികൾ; സാഹസകർ‍മ്മങ്ങൾ അവരുടെ കൈക്കൽ ഉണ്ടു
