Rejection (Kyozetsu - 拒絶) is the fifth episode of the Bible Black: New Testament series and the thirteenth anime episode produced overall.

It was first released in Japan on the 25th of December, 2006, well over a year after the previous episode. It was released in the United States on the 28th of July, 2009 under the names Third Scripture and Third Psalm in a double feature containing both Rejection and the final episode Reproduction.

The powers of darkness are about to reach a climax as police investigator Naoto Yamanishi is drugged, bewitched and possessed by Imari/Kitami. Hiroko Takashiro meanwhile fights Jody Crowley and discusses the girl's plan with Tokken chief Toru Yuge. Imari/Kitami discovers her follower Yuki Toudou's deceit and brutally tortures her with the previously captured teacher Rika Shiraki. Meanwhile, Tokken agent Aki Ichikawa is back on her feet, but not out of danger yet.

At the Tokken headquarters, Chief Toru Yuge drives off in his car, leaving the recently arrived agent Kurumi Imari behind with former police investigator Naoto Yamanishi. The young man is still working tirelessly on his research behind a computer. Imari suggests he takes a break and offers him coffee. Yamanishi accepts the drink, unaware that it has been drugged by Imari moments before and that her body is really inhabited by the evil witch Reika Kitami.

Imari examines Yamanishi's research and discovers he has been looking into her host body's past. She quickly closes the files on his computer and claims Chief Yuge left for an emergency when Yamanishi asks.

She also reveals that the chief told her all about how Yamanishi helped her fellow agent Aki Ichikawa in the hospital earlier and that he secured Yamanishi's police report that was supposedly destroyed when he was dismissed from the case.
