Jessa Duggar seems to have Josh Duggar's back despite the ongoing scandal that continues to rock their family.

Jessa, who was also one of her brother's victims in the sexual molestation scandal, shared a cryptic Bible passage on Instagram Sunday that talks about confessing sins and walking "in the light." The photo comes only a few days after Josh confessed to cheating on his wife, Anna, and having a porn addiction. Since confessing, Jessa and the rest of the 19 Kids and Counting family have turned out to support Josh.

"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us," the passage reads. "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

Although the Duggars later removed his admission to viewing pornography from the statement, Jessa has turned to her faith to help her through the scandal. She must have felt that her picture said it all, as she didn't include a caption with her post.

Her followers, however, also turned out to support her and her family, writing affirmative comments on the Bible verse. @sharonsneed wrote, "Amen! For those throwing need to check your own back yards. God Bless you and your entire family @jessaseewald Praying fir all of you."

@lachneyprincess added, "He's her brother & she loves him. Of course she's going to be there for him. It's up to him to make what he did right and get his life right with Anna, their kids and mostly with our Lord. The Bible says that by what ever measure you judge so shall you be judged by the same measure."

But not all the comments were as positive and reaffirming as these. Others accused him of confessing only because he got allegedly got caught in the Ashley Madison hack. His original statement, which was amended multiple times, also referenced the recent sexual molestation scandal.

"I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife," he said. "I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.

"I brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old, and now I have re-broken their trust," he continued, citing the recent molestation scandal. "The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings."
