What do I do with the ground wire?
 
I'm building a junction box in the attic to extend some wires that I'm moving after taking out a wall. There are three lines being moved and only one of them has a ground wire. The building wire I have has a ground wire in it. Is it sold without the ground wire and if not what do I do with the ground wire in the new line if I don't have anything to connect it to. all three lines are going in the same junction box.

If you are moving anything or add to anything, your new installation must have ground wires in it running back to the panel.
