"Be Ye" (part 2 of 2)

In my study of "Be ye" I came across verses that commanded what we should NOT be.

Be Ye Not
1) Be ye not stiffnecked
Now be ye not stiffnecked, as your fathers were, but yield yourselves unto the Lord, and enter into his sanctuary, which he hath sanctified for ever: and serve the Lord your God, that the fierceness of his wrath may turn away from you. 2 Chronicles 30:8

2) Be ye (not) sorry/grieved
Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10

So the Levites stilled all the people, saying, Hold your peace, for the day is holy; neither be ye grieved. Nehemiah 8:11

3) Be ye not afraid (of God's judgment)
Be ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment. Job 19:29

4) Be ye not as a horse/mule (stubborn)
Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee. Psalms 32:9

5) Be ye not afraid (of men and their words)
Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings. Isaiah 51:7

6) Be ye not as rebellious fathers
Be ye not as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets have cried, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Turn ye now from your evil ways, and from your evil doings: but they did not hear, nor hearken unto me, saith the Lord. Zechariah 1:4

 7) Be ye not masters
Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. Matthew 23:10

8) Be ye not troubled (of end-time rumors)
And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. Mark 13:7

9) Be ye not of a doubtful mind
And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. Luke 12:29

10) Be ye not idolaters
Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. 1 Corinthians 10:7

11) Be ye not unequally yoked in marriage
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14

12) Be ye not unwise
Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:17

Extra: three verses indicated what we should be because that is what God is.
"Be ye . . . for I am"
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Matthew 5:48
Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Luke 6:36
Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. 1 Peter 1:16
