From what you've said, i can almost certainly say this is Philippians 1:18 But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice (Philippians 1:18 NVI) This passage's context is pretty much like what you've read: bad ...

To my knowledge, there is no verse in the Bible that speaks specifically of a person who steals bread having to pay double. However, it is good to keep in mind that the Hebrew word for "bread" (לֶחֶם) is commonly used to mean "food" in general. With that in mind, in addition to the verses from Exodus quoted in Rob K's answer, which deal with double ...

It's Exodus 22. There's nothing specifically about bread, but it covers theft and double restoration. Exodus 22:4 (KJV): If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall restore double. Exodus 22:7 (KJV): If a man shall deliver unto his neighbour money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man'...

The Complete Jewish Bible you are looking at (notably, not a Jewish translation at all) is following the numbering scheme of the Masoretic Text where that text corresponds with 2:16-17.

Matthew 7 says: “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the ...

I believe these are the two main candidates for what you are after: And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. - Matthew 24:14 NIV The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, ...

It is implicit in the command given to Adam (Genesis 2:17): but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die. Theologians understand this as the covenant of works. The promise of blessing and life on the condition of obedience often comes with the punishment of curse and death ...

One verse that captures the idea of appropriate timing is Ephesians 4:29: Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. [ESV] Similarly, Matthew 18:15–17 describes the process for addressing sin in a fellow Christian—it should be addressed ...
