Age of Accountability

For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken of both her kings

Isaiah 7:16

This indicates there is an age of innocence, before knowing to refuse evil and choose good.

But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.

2 Samuel 12:23

This indicates that David will see his innocent son in heaven.

And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons

Genesis 3:7

This indicates that when innocence was lost, they were aware of their nakedness.
