This page is an incomplete outline of Bible verses which mention sin, according to which type of sin is mentioned. It arose out of a Bible study goal to find the most commonly mentioned sin in Scripture, which has turned out to be quite a large task.

It is based on a list of terms found here, entered into the Topical Index function's search field at BibleGateway.com. Each passage has been examined, narrowed or widened according to desired context, and listed under one or more headings accordingly. One problem is already obvious: Some types of sin, such as slander, are subcategories of multiple other types (lying and controversy). MediaWiki deals with this type of problem elegantly, but the list format does not lend itself to an easy solution that allows for counting unique verses.
