Teen Bible Verses – Old Testament

Exodus 23:2

“You shall not follow a crowd to do evil; nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after many to pervert justice.”

Short Explanation:
Things that are popular (worldly things) aren’t necessarily good things that are pleasing unto God. First discover the truth on a matter. Only when you apply that truth, you can be called a wise young daughter of a wise young man.

When you learn how to “live the truth”, you will experience peace within you that goes beyond human understanding.

Numbers 13:30

“Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.

Short Explanation:
In this verse, it is Caleb speaking to Moses. Caleb is not denying that they are facing a difficult situation. Peer pressure is not something to deal with in a lightly manner.

Look closely at Caleb’s words. What is he saying? “We are able to overcome…” In other words: declare that God (in you) is powerful and able to face problems. You, the believer – the teenager facing problems regarding peer pressure – will receive victory once you confess your faith.

It is not an overnight process; not an instant solution. It requires a strong relationship with Jesus your Saviour. You need to know who He is before you would know your abilities. He is alive in you! Get to know Him and discover what He is able to do through you.

Esther 3:2

“And all the king’s servants who were within the king’s gate bowed and paid homage to Haman, for so the king had commanded concerning him. But Mordecai would not bow or pay homage."

Short Explanation:
Haman was wicked and if Mordecai would bow down to Haman, he would acknowledge him as a god. You’ll probably not be popular if you do what is right. The people that do right, is always in the minority. It is however more important to be obedient unto God than to people.

Acts 5:29 – Peter and the other apostles replied, “We must obey God rather than men!” We should always be careful to worship no one but God Almighty.

Judges 2:11

“Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served the Baals.”

Short Explanation:
Teen peer pressure can cause your teen to be tempted to abandon what they know is right.

In this passage of scripture the Israelites abandoned the faith of their parents which caused them to worship other gods. If you compromise on the way you were brought up (this is in the way of the Lord), it can easily lead to disobedience unto God.

Be in a right standing with God and rather fight the desire to be accepted by friends, than live a life that is unaccepted to God.
