Neither shall he go in to any dead  body, nor defile himself for his father, or for his mother;
Neither shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his  God; for the crown of the anointing oil of his  God is upon him: I am the LORD.   Leviticus 21:11, 12 

All the days that he separateth himself unto the LORD he shall come at no dead  body.   Numbers 6:6 

And there were certain men, who were defiled by the dead  body of a man, that they could not keep the passover on that day: and they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day:
And those men said unto him, We are defiled by the dead  body of a man: wherefore are we kept back, that we may not offer an offering of the LORD in his appointed season among the children of Israel?
And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what the LORD will command concerning you.
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead  body, or be in a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the passover unto the LORD.   Numbers 9:6-10 

He that toucheth the dead  body of any man shall be unclean seven days.
He shall purify himself with it on the third day, and on the seventh day he shall be clean: but if he purify not himself the third day, then the seventh day he shall not be clean.
Whosoever toucheth the dead  body of any man that is dead, and purifieth not himself, defileth the tabernacle of the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from Israel: because the  water of separation was not sprinkled upon him, he shall be unclean; his uncleanness is yet upon him.   Numbers 19:11-13

So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be  evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave:
So that he will not give to any of them of the  flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates.   Deuteronomy 28:53-55 

And the LORD thy  God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy  body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:
If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy  God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy  God with all thine  heart, and with all thy soul.   Deuteronomy 30:9, 10

Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of  rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my  body for the sin of my soul?

And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole  body should be cast into  hell.   Matthew 5:29, 30 

The light of the  body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole  body shall be full of light.

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve  God and mammon.
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your  body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the  body than raiment?
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into  barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the  field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.   Matthew 6:22-29

The light of the  body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole  body also is full of light; but when thine eye is  evil, thy  body also is full of darkness.

And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the  body, what ye shall put on.
The life is more than meat, and the  body is more than raiment.   Luke 12:22, 23

And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.   Romans 4:19-21

For as we have many members in one  body, and all members have not the same office:
So we, being many, are one  body in Christ, and every one members one of another.   Romans 12:4, 5 

For I verily, as absent in  body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,
In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
To deliver such an one unto  Satan for the destruction of the  flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.   1 Corinthians 5:3-5 

Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but  God shall destroy both it and them. Now the  body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the  body.   1 Corinthians 6:13 

What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one  body? for two, saith he, shall be one  flesh.
But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the  body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own  body.
What? know ye not that your  body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of  God, and ye are not your own?
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify  God in your  body, and in your spirit, which are God's.   1 Corinthians 6:16-20 

The wife hath not power of her own  body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own  body, but the wife.   1 Corinthians 7:4 

There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in  body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.   1 Corinthians 7:34 

But I keep under my  body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.   1 Corinthians 9:27 

The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the  blood of Christ? The  bread which we break, is it not the communion of the  body of Christ?
For we being many are one  bread, and one  body: for we are all partakers of that one  bread.   1 Corinthians 10:16, 17 

And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my  body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.   1 Corinthians 11:24 

Wherefore whosoever shall eat this  bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the  body and  blood of the Lord.
But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that  bread, and drink of that cup.
For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's  body.   1 Corinthians 11:27-29 

For as the  body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one  body, being many, are one  body: so also is Christ.
For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one  body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
For the  body is not one member, but many.
If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the  body; is it therefore not of the  body?
And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the  body; is it therefore not of the  body?
If the whole  body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
But now hath  God set the members every one of them in the  body, as it hath pleased him.
And if they were all one member, where were the  body?
But now are they many members, yet but one  body.
And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
Nay, much more those members of the  body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
And those members of the  body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
For our comely parts have no need: but  God hath tempered the  body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked.
That there should be no schism in the  body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
Now ye are the  body of Christ, and members in particular.   1 Corinthians 12:12-27 

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my  body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.   1 Corinthians 13:3 

But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what  body do they come?
Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that  body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of  wheat, or of some other grain:
But  God giveth it a  body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own  body.   1 Corinthians 15:35-38 

It is sown a natural  body; it is raised a spiritual  body. There is a natural  body, and there is a spiritual  body.   1 Corinthians 15:44 

Always bearing about in the  body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our  body.   2 Corinthians 4:10 

Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the  body, we are absent from the Lord:
(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the  body, and to be present with the Lord.
Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his  body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.   2 Corinthians 5:6-10 

I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the  body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the  body, I cannot tell:  God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third  heaven.
And I knew such a man, (whether in the  body, or out of the  body, I cannot tell:  God knoweth;)
How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.   2 Corinthians 12:2-4 

From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my  body the marks of the Lord Jesus.   Galatians 6:17 

Which is his  body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.   Ephesians 1:23 

And that he might reconcile both unto  God in one  body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.   Ephesians 2:16, 17 

That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same  body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:
Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of  God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.   Ephesians 3:6, 7 

There is one  body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
One  God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.   Ephesians 4:4-6 

For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the  body of Christ:
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of  God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
From whom the whole  body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the  body unto the edifying of itself in love.   Ephesians 4:12-16 

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the  body.   Ephesians 5:23 

For we are members of his  body, of his  flesh, and of his  bones.   Ephesians 5:30 

According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my  body, whether it be by life, or by death.   Philippians 1:20 

Who shall change our vile  body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious  body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.   Philippians 3:21 

And he is the head of the  body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.   Colossians 1:18 

In the  body of his  flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under  heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;
Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my  flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:
Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of  God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of  God;
Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
To whom  God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
