John 16:8

King James Version

8 And when he is come, 

he will reprove the world of sin, 

and of righteousness, and of judgment:

The Bible has many verses on repentance.

The following verses will tell us more.

On repentance.

The need for repentance.

And the fruits of repentance.

2 Chronicles 7:14

King James Version

14 If my people, 

which are called by my name, 

shall humble themselves, 

and pray, 

and seek my face, 

and turn from their wicked ways; 

then will I hear from heaven, 

and will forgive their sin, 

and will heal their land.

Proverbs 28:13

King James Version

13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: 

but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them 

shall have mercy.

Ezekiel 18:20-22

King James Version

20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. 

The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, 

neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: 

the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, 

and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

21 But if the wicked will turn 

from all his sins that he hath committed, 

and keep all my statutes, 

and do that which is lawful and right, 

he shall surely live, 

he shall not die.

22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, 

they shall not be mentioned unto him: 

in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.

Ezekiel 18:23

King James Version

23 Have I any pleasure at all 

that the wicked should die? 

saith the Lord God: 

and not that he should return from his ways, 

and live?

Ezekiel 18:27-28

King James Version

27 Again, when the wicked man turneth away 

from his wickedness that he hath committed, 

and doeth that which is lawful and right, 

he shall save his soul alive.

28 Because he considereth, 

and turneth away from all his transgressions 

that he hath committed, 

he shall surely live, 

he shall not die.

Jesus began to preach, 

and to say, 


for the kingdom of heaven 

is at hand.

Luke 13:1-3

King James Version

13 There were present at that season 

some that told him of the Galilaeans, 

whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.

2 And Jesus answering said unto them, 

Suppose ye that these Galilaeans 

were sinners above all the Galilaeans, 

because they suffered such things?

3 I tell you, Nay: 

but, except ye repent, 

ye shall all likewise perish.

Luke 13:4-5

King James Version

4 Or those eighteen, 

upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, 

and slew them, 

think ye that they were sinners above all men 

that dwelt in Jerusalem?

but, except ye repent, 

ye shall all likewise perish.

38 Then Peter said unto them, 


and be baptized every one of you 

in the name of Jesus Christ 

for the remission of sins, 

and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

39 For the promise is unto you, 

and to your children, 

and to all that are afar off, 

even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

Acts 3:19-21

King James Version

19 Repent ye therefore, 

and be converted, 

that your sins may be blotted out, 

when the times of refreshing 

shall come from the presence of the Lord.

20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, 

which before was preached unto you:

21 Whom the heaven must receive 

until the times of restitution of all things, 

which God hath spoken by the mouth 

of all his holy prophets 

since the world began.

Acts 17:30-31

King James Version

30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; 

but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

31 Because he hath appointed a day, 

in the which he will judge the world in righteousness 

by that man whom he hath ordained; 

whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, 

in that he hath raised him from the dead.

Romans 2:2-6

King James Version

2 But we are sure that the judgment of God 

is according to truth 

against them which commit such things.

3 And thinkest thou this, 

O man, 

that judgest them which do such things, 

and doest the same, 

that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?

4 Or despisest thou the riches 

of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; 

not knowing that the goodness of God 

leadeth thee to repentance?

5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart 

treasurest up unto thyself wrath 

against the day of wrath and revelation 

of the righteous judgment of God;

6 Who will render to every man 

according to his deeds:

Romans 2:7-8

King James Version

7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing 

seek for glory and honour and immortality, 

eternal life:

8 But unto them that are contentious, 

and do not obey the truth, 

but obey unrighteousness, 

indignation and wrath,

Romans 2:9-11

King James Version

9 Tribulation and anguish, 

upon every soul of man that doeth evil, 

of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;

10 But glory, honour, and peace, 

to every man that worketh good, 

to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:

11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

2 Peter 3:9

King James Version

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, 

as some men count slackness; 

but is longsuffering to us-ward, 

not willing that any should perish, 

but that all should come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:10-14

King James Version

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; 

in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, 

and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, 

the earth also and the works that are therein 

shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, 

what manner of persons ought ye to be 

in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto 

the coming of the day of God, 

wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, 

and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, 

according to his promise, 

look for new heavens and a new earth, 

wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14 Wherefore, beloved, 

seeing that ye look for such things, 

be diligent that ye may be found of him 

in peace, 

without spot, 

and blameless.

1 John 1:9

9 If we confess our sins, 

he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, 

and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

King James Version

5 Remember therefore 

from whence thou art fallen, 

and repent, 

and do the first works; 

or else I will come unto thee quickly, 

and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, 

except thou repent.
