9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation. Noah walked with God.

14 Because the LORD your God walks in the midst of your camp, to deliver you and to give up your enemies before you, therefore your camp must be holy, so that he may not see anything indecent among you and turn away from you.

6 And Solomon said, “You have shown great and steadfast love to your servant David my father, because he walked before you in faithfulness, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart toward you.

1 Kings 8:23
23 and said, “O LORD, God of Israel, there is no God like you, in heaven above or on earth beneath, keeping covenant and showing steadfast love to your servants who walk before you with all their heart;
1 Kings 8:25
25 Now therefore, O LORD, God of Israel, keep for your servant David my father what you have promised him, saying, ‘You shall not lack a man to sit before me on the throne of Israel, if only your sons pay close attention to their way, to walk before me as you have walked before me.’

1 A Psalm of David. O LORD, who shall sojourn in your tent? Who shall dwell on your holy hill?
2 He who walks blamelessly and does what is right and speaks truth in his heart;
10 All the paths of the LORD are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
13 For you have delivered my soul from death, yes, my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.
23 Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand.
9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.
2 Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the LORD,
3 and said, “Please, O LORD, remember how I have walked before you in faithfulness and with a whole heart, and have done what is good in your sight.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.
2 he enters into peace; they rest in their beds who walk in their uprightness.
5 For all the peoples walk each in the name of its god, but we will walk in the name of the LORD our God forever and ever.
8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
6 And they were both righteous before God, walking blamelessly in all the commandments and statutes of the Lord.
1 Corinthians 7:20-24
20 Each one should remain in the condition in which he was called.
21 Were you a bondservant when called? Do not be concerned about it. (But if you can gain your freedom, avail yourself of the opportunity.)
22 For he who was called in the Lord as a bondservant is a freedman of the Lord. Likewise he who was free when called is a bondservant of Christ.
23 You were bought with a price; do not become bondservants of men.
24 So, brothers, in whatever condition each was called, there let him remain with God.
1 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called,
10 so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;
1 John 2:6
6 whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.
