  7. Gen2:16 And the Lord God gave the man orders, saying, You may freely take of the fruit of every tree of the garden:

  10. Gen2:19 And from the earth the Lord God made every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and took them to the man to see what names he would give them: and whatever name he gave to any living thing, that was its name.

  11. Gen3:4 And the snake said, Death will not certainly come to you:

  12. Gen3:5 For God sees that on the day when you take of its fruit, your eyes will be open, and you will be as gods, having knowledge of good and evil.

  13. Gen3:11 And he said, Who gave you the knowledge that you were without clothing? Have you taken of the fruit of the tree which I said you were not to take?

  14. Gen3:19 With the hard work of your hands you will get your bread till you go back to the earth from which you were taken: for dust you are and to the dust you will go back.

  15. Gen3:22 And the Lord God said, Now the man has become like one of us, having knowledge of good and evil; and now if he puts out his hand and takes of the fruit of the tree of life, he will go on living for ever.

  16. Gen3:23 So the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to be a worker on the earth from which he was taken.

  17. Gen3:24 So he sent the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden he put winged ones and a flaming sword turning every way to keep the way to the tree of life.

  19. Gen4:11 And now you are cursed from the earth, whose mouth is open to take your brother's blood from your hand;

  20. Gen4:12 No longer will the earth give you her fruit as the reward of your work; you will be a wanderer in flight over the earth.

  21. Gen4:13 And Cain said, My punishment is greater than my strength.

  25. Gen6:1 And after a time, when men were increasing on the earth, and had daughters,

  26. Gen6:3 And the Lord said, My spirit will not be in man for ever, for he is only flesh; so the days of his life will be a hundred and twenty years.

  27. Gen8:3 And the waters went slowly back from the earth, and at the end of a hundred and fifty days the waters were lower.

  28. Gen8:5 And still the waters went on falling, till on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains were seen.

  29. Gen8:7 Noah sent out a raven, which went this way and that till the waters were gone from the earth.

  30. Gen8:8 And he sent out a dove, to see if the waters had gone from the face of the earth;

  31. Gen8:12 And after seven days more, he sent the dove out again, but she did not come back to him.

  35. Gen10:8 And Cush was the father of Nimrod, who was the first of the great men of the earth.

  36. Gen10:19 Their country stretching from Zidon to Gaza, in the direction of Gerar; and to Lasha, in the direction of Sodom and Gomorrah and Admah and Zeboiim.

  37. Gen10:30 And their country was from Mesha, in the direction of Sephar, the mountain of the east.

  38. Gen11:2 And it came about that in their wandering from the east, they came to a stretch of flat country in the land of Shinar, and there they made their living-place.

  39. Gen11:5 And the Lord came down to see the town and the tower which the children of men were building.

  40. Gen11:6 And the Lord said, See, they are all one people and have all one language; and this is only the start of what they may do: and now it will not be possible to keep them from any purpose of theirs.

  41. Gen11:8 So the Lord God sent them away into every part of the earth: and they gave up building their town.

  42. Gen11:31 And Terah took Abram, his son, and Lot, the son of Haran, and Sarai, his daughter-in-law, the wife of his son Abram and they went out from Ur of the Chaldees, to go to the land of Canaan; and they came to Haran, and were there for some time.

  43. Gen12:4 So Abram went as the Lord had said to him, and Lot went with him: Abram was seventy-five years old when he went away from Haran.

  44. Gen12:5 And Abram took Sarai, his wife, and Lot, his brother's son, and all their goods and the servants which they had got in Haran, and they went out to go to the land of Canaan.

  45. Gen12:9 And he went on, journeying still to the South.

  46. Gen12:10 And because there was little food to be had in that land, he went down into Egypt.

  47. Gen12:11 Now when he came near to Egypt, he said to Sarai, his wife, Truly, you are a fair woman and beautiful to the eye;

  48. Gen12:14 And so it was that when Abram came into Egypt, the men of Egypt, looking on the woman, saw that she was fair.

  49. Gen13:6 So that the land was not wide enough for the two of them: their property was so great that there was not room for them together.

  50. Gen13:10 And Lot, lifting up his eyes and looking an the valley of Jordan, saw that it was well watered everywhere, before the Lord had sent destruction on Sodom and Gomorrah; it was like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, on the way to Zoar.

  51. Gen13:16 And I will make your children like the dust of the earth, so that if the dust of the earth may be numbered, then will your children be numbered.

  52. Gen14:17 And when he was coming back after putting to flight Chedorlaomer and the other kings, he had a meeting with the king of Sodom in the valley of Shaveh, that is, the King's Valley.

  53. Gen15:1 After these things, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, Have no fear, Abram: I will keep you safe, and great will be your reward.

  54. Gen15:4 Then said the Lord, This man will not get the heritage, but a son of your body will have your property after you.

  55. Gen15:5 And he took him out into the open air, and said to him, Let your eyes be lifted to heaven, and see if the stars may be numbered; even so will your seed be.

  56. Gen15:7 And he said to him, I am the Lord, who took you from Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land for your heritage.

  57. Gen15:10 All these he took, cutting them in two and putting one half opposite the other, but not cutting the birds in two.

  58. Gen15:12 Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep came on Abram, and a dark cloud of fear.

  59. Gen15:13 And he said to Abram, Truly, your seed will be living in a land which is not theirs, as servants to a people who will be cruel to them for four hundred years;

  60. Gen15:18 In that day the Lord made an agreement with Abram, and said, To your seed have I given this land from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates:

  61. Gen16:2 And Sarai said to Abram, See, the Lord has not let me have children; go in to my servant, for I may get a family through her. And Abram did as Sarai said.

  62. Gen16:3 So after Abram had been living for ten years in the land of Canaan, Sarai took Hagar, her Egyptian servant, and gave her to Abram for his wife.

  63. Gen16:16 Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar gave birth to Ishmael.

  64. Gen17:3 And Abram went down on his face on the earth, and the Lord God went on talking with him, and said,

  65. Gen18:2 And lifting up his eyes, he saw three men before him; and seeing them, he went quickly to them from the door of the tent, and went down on his face to the earth;

  66. Gen18:7 And running to the herd, he took a young ox, soft and fat, and gave it to the servant and he quickly made it ready;

  67. Gen18:10 And he said, I will certainly come back to you in the spring, and Sarah your wife will have a son. And his words came to the ears of Sarah who was at the back of the tent-door.

  68. Gen18:12 And Sarah, laughing to herself, said, Now that I am used up am I still to have pleasure, my husband himself being old?

  69. Gen18:13 And the Lord said, Why was Sarah laughing and saying, Is it possible for me, being old, to give birth to a child?

  70. Gen18:15 Then Sarah said, I was not laughing; for she was full of fear. And he said, No, but you were laughing.

  71. Gen18:19 For I have made him mine so that he may give orders to his children and those of his line after him, to keep the ways of the Lord, to do what is good and right: so that the Lord may do to Abraham as he has said.

  72. Gen18:25 Let such a thing be far from you, to put the upright to death with the sinner: will not the judge of all the earth do right?

  73. Gen19:1 And at nightfall the two angels came to Sodom; and Lot was seated at the way into the town: and when he saw them he got up and came before them, falling down on his face to the earth.

  74. Gen19:9 And they said, Give way there. This one man, they said, came here from a strange country, and will he now be our judge? now we will do worse to you than to them; and pushing violently against Lot, they came near to get the door broken in.

  75. Gen19:11 But the men who were outside the door they made blind, all of them, small and great, so that they were tired out with looking for the door.

  76. Gen19:15 And when morning came, the angels did all in their power to make Lot go, saying, Get up quickly and take your wife and your two daughters who are here, and go, for fear that you come to destruction in the punishment of the town.

  77. Gen19:20 This town, now, is near, and it is a little one: O, let me go there (is it not a little one?) so that my life may be safe.

  78. Gen19:21 And he said, See, I have given you your request in this one thing more: I will not send destruction on this town.

  79. Gen19:22 Go there quickly, for I am not able to do anything till you have come there. For this reason, the town was named Zoar.

  80. Gen19:29 So it came about that when God sent destruction on the towns of the lowland, he kept his word to Abraham, and sent Lot safely away when he put an end to the towns where he was living.

  81. Gen19:30 Then Lot went up out of Zoar to the mountain, and was living there with his two daughters, for fear kept him from living in Zoar: and he and his daughters made their living-place in a hole in the rock.

  82. Gen19:31 And the older daughter said to her sister, Our father is old, and there is no man to be a husband to us in the natural way:

  83. Gen19:33 And that night they made their father take much wine; and the older daughter went into his bed; and he had no knowledge of when she went in or when she went away.

  84. Gen19:35 And that night again they made their father take much wine; and the younger daughter went into his bed; and he had no knowledge of when she went in or when she went away.

  85. Gen20:6 And God said to him in the dream, I see that you have done this with an upright heart, and I have kept you from sinning against me: for this reason I did not let you come near her.

  86. Gen20:7 So now, give the man back his wife, for he is a prophet, and let him say a prayer for you, so your life may be safe: but if you do not give her back, be certain that death will come to you and all your house.

  87. Gen20:18 For the Lord had kept all the women of the house of Abimelech from having children, because of Sarah, Abraham's wife.

  88. Gen21:22 Now at that time, Abimelech and Phicol, the captain of his army, said to Abraham, I see that God is with you in all you do.

  89. Gen22:10 And stretching out his hand, Abraham took the knife to put his son to death.

  90. Gen22:20 After these things, Abraham had news that Milcah, the wife of his brother Nahor, had given birth to children;

  91. Gen23:2 And Sarah's death took place in Kiriath-arba, that is, Hebron, in the land of Canaan: and Abraham went into his house, weeping and sorrowing for Sarah.

  92. Gen23:3 And Abraham came from his dead and said to the children of Heth,

  93. Gen23:5 And in answer the children of Heth said to Abraham,

  94. Gen23:6 My lord, truly you are a great chief among us; take the best of our resting-places for your dead; not one of us will keep back from you a place where you may put your dead to rest.

  95. Gen23:8 And he said to them, If you will let me put my dead to rest here, make a request for me to Ephron, the son of Zohar,

  96. Gen23:10 Now Ephron was seated among the children of Heth: and Ephron the Hittite gave Abraham his answer in the hearing of the children of Heth, and of all those who came into his town, saying,

  97. Gen23:13 And Abraham said to Ephron, in the hearing of the people of the land, If only you will give ear to me, I will give you the price of the field; take it, and let me put my dead to rest there.

  98. Gen23:14 So Ephron said to Abraham,

  99. Gen24:5 And the servant said, If by chance the woman will not come with me into this land, am I to take your son back again to the land from which you came?

  100. Gen24:7 The Lord God of heaven, who took me from my father's house and from the land of my birth, and made an oath to me, saying, To your seed I will give this land: he will send his angel before you and give you a wife for my son in that land.

  101. Gen24:8 And if the woman will not come with you, then you are free from this oath; only do not take my son back there.

  102. Gen24:11 And he made the camels take their rest outside the town by the water-spring in the evening, at the time when the women came to get water.

  103. Gen24:13 See, I am waiting here by the water-spring; and the daughters of the town are coming out to get water:

  104. Gen24:17 And the servant came running to her and said, Give me a little water from your vessel.

  105. Gen24:19 And having done so, she said, I will get water for your camels till they have had enough.

  106. Gen24:20 And after putting the water from her vessel into the animals' drinking-place, she went quickly back to the spring and got water for all the camels.

  107. Gen24:21 And the man, looking at her, said nothing, waiting to see if the Lord had given his journey a good outcome.

  108. Gen24:22 And when the camels had had enough, the man took a gold nose-ring, half a shekel in weight, and two ornaments for her arms of ten shekels weight of gold;

  109. Gen24:23 And said to her, Whose daughter are you? is there room in your father's house for us?

  110. Gen24:25 And she said, We have a great store of dry grass and cattle-food, and there is room for you.

  111. Gen24:29 Now Rebekah had a brother named Laban, and he came out quickly to the man at the water-spring.

  112. Gen24:32 Then the man came into the house, and Laban took their cords off the camels and gave them dry grass and food, and he gave to him and the men who were with him water for washing their feet.

  113. Gen24:33 And meat was put before him, but he said, I will not take food till I have made my business clear to you. And they said, Do so.

  114. Gen24:37 And my master made me take an oath, saying, Do not get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites among whom I am living;

  115. Gen24:43 Let it come about that, while I am waiting here by the water-spring, if a girl comes to get water and I say to her, Give me a little water from your vessel, and she says,

  116. Gen24:48 And with bent head I gave worship and praise to the Lord, the God of my master Abraham, by whom I had been guided in the right way, to get the daughter of my master's brother for his son.

  117. Gen24:62 Now Isaac had come through the waste land to Beer-lahai-roi; for he was living in the South.

  118. Gen24:63 And when the evening was near, he went wandering out into the fields, and lifting up his eyes he saw camels coming.

  119. Gen24:65 And said to the servant, Who is that man coming to us through the field? And the servant said, It is my master: then she took her veil, covering her face with it.

  120. Gen25:18 And their country was from Havilah to Shur which is east of Egypt: they took their place to the east of all their brothers.

  121. Gen25:20 Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Aramaean of Paddan-aram, and the sister of Laban the Aramaean, to be his wife.

  122. Gen25:22 And the children were fighting together inside her, and she said, If it is to be so, why am I like this? So she went to put her question to the Lord.

  123. Gen25:24 And when the time came for her to give birth, there were two children in her body.

  124. Gen25:26 And after him, his brother came out, gripping Esau's foot; and he was named Jacob: Isaac was sixty years old when she gave birth to them.

  125. Gen25:32 And Esau said, Truly, I am at the point of death: what profit is the birthright to me?

  126. Gen26:7 And when he was questioned by the men of the place about his wife, he said, She is my sister; fearing to say, She is my wife; for, he said, the men of the place may put me to death on account of Rebekah; because she is very beautiful.

  127. Gen26:11 And Abimelech gave orders to his people that anyone touching Isaac or his wife was to be put to death.

  128. Gen26:13 And his wealth became very great, increasing more and more;

  129. Gen26:20 But the herdmen of Gerar had a fight with Isaac's herdmen, for they said, The spring is ours: so he gave the spring the name of Esek, because there was a fight about it.

  130. Gen26:28 And they said, We saw clearly that the Lord was with you: so we said, Let there be an oath between us and you, and let us make an agreement with you;

  131. Gen27:1 Now when Isaac was old and his eyes had become clouded so that he was not able to see, he sent for Esau, his first son, and said to him, My son: and he said, Here am I.

  132. Gen27:5 Now Isaac's words to his son were said in Rebekah's hearing. Then Esau went out to get the meat.

  133. Gen27:6 And Rebekah said to Jacob, her son, Your father said to your brother Esau in my hearing,

  134. Gen27:20 And Isaac said, How is it that you have got it so quickly, my son? And he said, Because the Lord your God made it come my way.

  135. Gen27:30 And when Isaac had come to the end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob had not long gone away from Isaac his father, Esau came in from the field.

  136. Gen27:34 And hearing the words of his father, Esau gave a great and bitter cry, and said to his father, Give a blessing to me, even to me, O my father!

  137. Gen27:42 Then Rebekah, hearing what Esau had said, sent for Jacob, her younger son, and said to him, It seems that your brother Esau is purposing to put you to death.

  138. Gen27:45 Till the memory of what you have done to him is past and he is no longer angry: then I will send word for you to come back; are the two of you to be taken from me in one day?

  139. Gen28:4 And may God give you the blessing of Abraham, to you and to your seed, so that the land of your wanderings, which God gave to Abraham, may be your heritage.

  140. Gen28:6 So when Esau saw that Isaac had given Jacob his blessing, and sent him away to Paddan-aram to get a wife for himself there, blessing him and saying to him, Do not take a wife from among the women of Canaan;

  141. Gen28:20 Then Jacob took an oath, and said, If God will be with me, and keep me safe on my journey, and give me food and clothing to put on,

  142. Gen29:13 And Laban, hearing news of Jacob, his sister's son, came running, and took Jacob in his arms, and kissing him, made him come into his house. And Jacob gave him news of everything.

  143. Gen29:19 And Laban said, It is better for you to have her than another man: go on living here with me.

  144. Gen29:26 And Laban said, In our country we do not let the younger daughter be married before the older.

  145. Gen29:35 And she was with child again, and gave birth to a son: and she said, This time I will give praise to the Lord: so he was named Judah; after this she had no more children for a time.

  146. Gen30:9 When it was clear to Leah that she would have no more children for a time, she gave Zilpah, her servant, to Jacob as a wife.

  147. Gen30:15 But Leah said to her, Is it a small thing that you have taken my husband from me? and now would you take my son's love-fruits? Then Rachel said, You may have him tonight in exchange for your son's love-fruits.

  148. Gen30:16 In the evening, when Jacob came in from the field, Leah went out to him and said, Tonight you are to come to me, for I have given my son's love-fruits as a price for you. And he went in to her that night.

  149. Gen30:24 And she gave him the name Joseph, saying, May the Lord give me another son.

  150. Gen30:38 And he put the banded sticks in the drinking-places where the flock came to get water; and they became with young when they came to the water.

  151. Gen31:1 Now it came to the ears of Jacob that Laban's sons were saying, Jacob has taken away all our father's property, and in this way he has got all this wealth.

  152. Gen31:15 Are we not as people from a strange country to him? for he took a price for us and now it is all used up.

  153. Gen31:18 And sending on before him all his cattle and his property which he had got together in Paddan-aram, he made ready to go to Isaac his father in the land of Canaan.

  154. Gen31:19 Now Laban had gone to see to the cutting of the wool of his sheep; so Rachel secretly took the images of the gods of her father's house.

  155. Gen31:27 Why did you make a secret of your flight, not giving me word of it, so that I might have sent you away with joy and songs, with melody and music?

  156. Gen31:28 You did not even let me give a kiss to my sons and my daughters. This was a foolish thing to do.

  157. Gen31:29 It is in my power to do you damage: but the God of your father came to me this night, saying, Take care that you say nothing good or bad to Jacob.

  158. Gen31:30 And now, it seems, you are going because your heart's desire is for your father's house; but why have you taken my gods?

  159. Gen31:35 And she said to her father, Let not my lord be angry because I do not get up before you, for I am in the common condition of women. And with all his searching, he did not come across the images.

  160. Gen31:54 And Jacob made an offering on the mountain, and gave orders to his people to take food: so they had a meal and took their rest that night on the mountain.

  161. Gen32:4 And he gave them orders to say these words to Esau: Your servant Jacob says, Till now I have been living with Laban:

  162. Gen32:5 And I have oxen and asses and flocks and men-servants and women-servants: and I have sent to give my lord news of these things so that I may have grace in his eyes.

  163. Gen32:6 When the servants came back they said, We have seen your brother Esau and he is coming out to you, and four hundred men with him.

  164. Gen32:17 And he gave orders to the first, saying, When my brother Esau comes to you and says, Whose servant are you, and where are you going, and whose are these herds?

  165. Gen32:19 And he gave the same orders to the second and the third and to all those who were with the herds, saying, This is what you are to say to Esau when you see him;

  166. Gen32:24 Then Jacob was by himself; and a man was fighting with him till dawn.

  167. Gen33:3 And he himself, going before them, went down on his face to the earth seven times till he came near his brother.

  168. Gen33:4 Then Esau came running up to him, and folding him in his arms, gave him a kiss: and the two of them were overcome with weeping.

  169. Gen33:8 And he said, What were all those herds which I saw on the way? And Jacob said, They were an offering so that I might have grace in my lord's eyes.

  170. Gen33:10 And Jacob said, Not so; but if I have grace in your eyes, take them as a sign of my love, for I have seen your face as one may see the face of God, and you have been pleased with me.

  171. Gen33:18 So Jacob came safely from Paddan-aram to the town of Shechem in the land of Canaan, and put up his tents near the town.

  172. Gen34:1 Now Dinah, the daughter whom Leah had by Jacob, went out to see the women of that country.

  173. Gen34:4 And Shechem said to Hamor, his father, Get me this girl for my wife.

  174. Gen34:5 Now Jacob had word of what Shechem had done to his daughter; but his sons were in the fields with the cattle, and Jacob said nothing till they came.

  175. Gen34:7 Now the sons of Jacob came in from the fields when they had news of it, and they were wounded and very angry because of the shame he had done in Israel by having connection with Jacob's daughter; and they said, Such a thing is not to be done.

  176. Gen34:8 But Hamor said to them, Shechem, my son, is full of desire for your daughter: will you then give her to him for a wife?

  177. Gen34:14 And they said, It is not possible for us to give our sister to one who is without circumcision, for that would be a cause of shame to us:

  178. Gen34:19 And without loss of time the young man did as they said, because he had delight in Jacob's daughter, and he was the noblest of his father's house.

  179. Gen34:20 Then Hamor and Shechem, his son, went to the meeting-place of their town, and said to the men of the town,

  180. Gen34:22 But these men will make an agreement with us to go on living with us and to become one people, only on the condition that every male among us undergoes circumcision as they have done.

  181. Gen35:1 And God said to Jacob, Go up now to Beth-el and make your living-place there: and put up an altar there to the God who came to you when you were in flight from your brother Esau.

  182. Gen35:7 And there he made an altar, naming the place El-beth-el: because it was there he had the vision of God when he was in flight from his brother.

  183. Gen35:9 Now when Jacob was on his way from Paddan-aram, God came to him again and, blessing him, said,

  184. Gen35:16 So they went on from Beth-el; and while they were still some distance from Ephrath, the pains of birth came on Rachel and she had a hard time.

  185. Gen35:17 And when her pain was very great, the woman who was helping her said, Have no fear; for now you will have another son.

  186. Gen35:18 And in the hour when her life went from her (for death came to her), she gave the child the name Ben-oni: but his father gave him the name of Benjamin.

  187. Gen35:22 Now while they were living in that country, Reuben had connection with Bilhah, his father's servant-woman: and Israel had news of it.

  188. Gen36:7 For their wealth was so great that the land was not wide enough for the two of them and all their cattle.

  189. Gen36:24 And these are the children of Zibeon: Aiah and Anah; that same Anah who made the discovery of the water-springs in the waste land, when he was looking after the asses of his father Zibeon.

  190. Gen36:31 And these are the kings who were ruling in the land of Edom before there was any king over the children of Israel.

  191. Gen37:5 Now Joseph had a dream, and he gave his brothers an account of it, which made their hate greater than ever.

  192. Gen37:8 And his brothers said to him, Are you to be our king? will you have authority over us? And because of his dream and his words, their hate for him became greater than ever.

  193. Gen37:10 And he gave word of it to his father and his brothers; but his father protesting said, What sort of a dream is this? am I and your mother and your brothers to go down on our faces to the earth before you?

  194. Gen37:12 Now his brothers went to keep watch over their father's flock in Shechem.

  195. Gen37:15 And a man saw him wandering in the country, and said to him, What are you looking for?

  196. Gen37:25 Then seating themselves, they took their meal: and looking up, they saw a travelling band of Ishmaelites, coming from Gilead on their way to Egypt, with spices and perfumes on their camels.

  197. Gen37:33 And he saw that it was, and said, It is my son's coat; an evil beast has put him to death; without doubt Joseph has come to a cruel end.

  198. Gen38:5 Then she had another son, to whom she gave the name Shelah; she was at Chezib when the birth took place.

  199. Gen38:9 But Onan, seeing that the offspring would not be his, went in to his brother's wife, but let his seed go on to the earth, so that he might not get offspring for his brother.

  200. Gen38:13 And when Tamar had news that her father-in-law was going up to Timnah to the wool-cutting,

  201. Gen38:17 And he said, I will give you a young goat from the flock. And she said, What will you give me as a sign till you send it?

  202. Gen38:20 Then Judah sent his friend Hirah with the young goat, to get back the things which he had given as a sign to the woman: but she was not there.

  203. Gen38:21 And he put questions to the men of the place, saying, Where is the loose woman who was in Enaim by the wayside? And they said, There was no such woman there.

  204. Gen38:24 Now about three months after this, word came to Judah that Tamar, his daughter-in-law, had been acting like a loose woman and was with child. And Judah said, Take her out and let her be burned.

  205. Gen38:25 And while she was being taken out, she sent word to her father-in-law, saying, The man whose property these things are, is the father of my child: say then, whose are this ring and this cord and this stick?

  206. Gen38:26 Then Judah said openly that they were his, and said, She is more upright than I am, for I did not give her to Shelah my son. And he had no more connection with her.

  207. Gen38:27 And when the time came for her to give birth, it was clear that there were two children in her body.

  208. Gen38:28 And while she was in the act of giving birth, one of them put out his hand; and the woman who was with her put a red thread round his hand, saying, This one came out first.

  209. Gen39:10 And day after day she went on requesting Joseph to come to her and be her lover, but he would not give ear to her.

  210. Gen39:11 Now one day he went into the house to do his work; and not one of the men of the house was inside.

  211. Gen39:12 And pulling at his coat, she said, Come to my bed; but slipping out of his coat, he went running away.

  212. Gen39:13 And when she saw that he had got away, letting her keep his coat,

  213. Gen39:14 She sent for the men of her house and said to them, See, he has let a Hebrew come here and make sport of us; he came to my bed, and I gave a loud cry;

  214. Gen39:15 And hearing it he went running out without his coat.

  215. Gen39:16 And she kept his coat by her, till his master came back.

  216. Gen39:17 Then she gave him the same story, saying, The Hebrew servant whom you have taken into our house came in to make sport of me;

  217. Gen39:19 And hearing his wife's account of what his servant had done, he became very angry.

  218. Gen40:7 And he said to the servants of Pharaoh who were in prison with him, Why are you looking so sad?

  219. Gen41:9 Then the chief wine-servant said to Pharaoh, The memory of my sin comes back to me now;

  220. Gen41:15 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, I have had a dream, and no one is able to give me the sense of it; now it has come to my ears that you are able to give the sense of a dream when it is put before you.

  221. Gen41:16 Then Joseph said, Without God there will be no answer of peace for Pharaoh.

  222. Gen41:32 And this dream came to Pharaoh twice, because this thing is certain, and God will quickly make it come about.

  223. Gen41:41 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, See, I have put you over all the land of Egypt.

  224. Gen41:43 And he made him take his seat in the second of his carriages; and they went before him crying, Make way! So he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.

  225. Gen41:46 Now Joseph was thirty years old when he came before Pharaoh, king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from before the face of Pharaoh and went through all the land of Egypt.

  226. Gen41:49 So he got together a store of grain like the sand of the sea; so great a store that after a time he gave up measuring it, for it might not be measured.

  227. Gen41:54 Then came the first of the seven years of need as Joseph had said: and in every other land they were short of food; but in the land of Egypt there was bread.

  228. Gen41:57 And all lands sent to Egypt, to Joseph, to get grain, for the need was great over all the earth.

  229. Gen42:3 So Joseph's ten brothers went down to get grain from Egypt.

  230. Gen42:5 And the sons of Israel came with all the others to get grain: for they were very short of food in the land of Canaan.

  231. Gen42:7 And when Joseph saw his brothers, it was clear to him who they were, but he made himself strange to them, and talking roughly to them, said, Where do you come from? And they said, From the land of Canaan, to get food.

  232. Gen42:9 Then the memory of his dreams about them came back to Joseph, and he said to them, You have come secretly to see how poor the land is.

  233. Gen42:10 And they said to him, Not so, my lord: your servants have come with money to get food.

  234. Gen42:12 And he said to them, No, but you have come to see how poor the land is.

  235. Gen42:14 And Joseph said, It is as I said; you have come with some secret purpose;

  236. Gen42:15 But in this way will you be put to the test: by the life of Pharaoh, you will not go away from this place till your youngest brother comes here.

  237. Gen42:22 And Reuben said to them, Did I not say to you, Do the child no wrong? but you gave no attention; so now, punishment has come on us for his blood.

  238. Gen42:25 Then Joseph gave orders for their bags to be made full of grain, and for every man's money to be put back into his bag, and for food to be given them for the journey: which was done.

  239. Gen42:27 Now at their night's resting-place one of them, opening his bag to give his ass some food, saw his money in the mouth of the bag.

  240. Gen42:28 And he said to his brothers, My money has been given back: it is in my bag; then their hearts became full of fear, and turning to one another they said, What is this which God has done to us?

  241. Gen42:29 So when they came to Jacob their father, in the land of Canaan, they gave him an account of all their experiences, saying,

  242. Gen42:37 And Reuben said, Put my two sons to death if I do not come back to you with him; let him be in my care and I will give him safely back to you.

  243. Gen43:1 And when the grain which they had got in Egypt was all used up, their father said to them, Go again and get us a little food.

  244. Gen43:2 And Judah said to him, The man said to us with an oath, You are not to come before me again without your brother.

  245. Gen43:6 And they said, The man put a number of questions to us about ourselves and our family, saying, Is your father still living? have you another brother? And we had to give him answers; how were we to have any idea that he would say, Come back with your brother?

  246. Gen43:15 And when Joseph saw Benjamin, he said to his chief servant, Take these men into my house, and make ready a meal, for they will take food with me in the middle of the day.

  247. Gen43:17 Now the men were full of fear because they had been taken into Joseph's house and they said, It is because of the money which was put back in our bags the first time; he is looking for something against us, so that he may come down on us and take us and our asses for his use.

  248. Gen43:19 And said, O my lord, we only came down the first time to get food;

  249. Gen43:21 As well as more money, with which to get food: we have no idea who put our money in our bags.

  250. Gen43:24 And they got ready the things for Joseph before he came in the middle of the day: for word was given to them that they were to have a meal there.

  251. Gen43:29 Then Joseph's heart went out to his brother, and he went quickly into his room, for he was overcome with weeping.

  252. Gen43:31 And they put a meal ready for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians who were with him by themselves; because the Egyptians may not take food with the Hebrews, for that would make them unclean.

  253. Gen44:1 Then he gave orders to the servant who was over his house, saying, Put as much food into the men's bags as will go into them, and put every man's money in the mouth of his bag;

  254. Gen44:7 And they said to him, Why does my lord say such words as these? far be it from your servants to do such a thing:

  255. Gen44:17 Then he said, Far be it from me to do so: but the man who had my cup will be my servant; and you may go back to your father in peace.

  256. Gen44:19 My lord said to his servants, Have you a father or a brother?

  257. Gen44:22 And we said to my lord, His father will not let him go; for if he went away his father would come to his death.

  258. Gen44:23 But you said to your servants, If your youngest brother does not come with you, you will not see my face again.

  259. Gen44:26 And we said, Only if our youngest brother goes with us will we go down; for we may not see the man's face again if our youngest brother is not with us.

  260. Gen44:28 The one went away from me, and I said, Truly he has come to a violent death; and from that time I have not seen him,

  261. Gen44:30 If then I go back to your servant, my father, without the boy, because his life and the boy's life are one,

  262. Gen44:31 When he sees that the boy is not with us, he will come to his death, and our father's grey head will go down in sorrow to the underworld.

  263. Gen44:32 For I made myself responsible for the boy to my father, saying, If I do not give him safely back to you, let mine be the sin for ever.

  264. Gen45:3 And Joseph said to his brothers, I am Joseph: is my father still living? But his brothers were not able to give him an answer for they were troubled before him.

  265. Gen45:7 God sent me before you to keep you and yours living on earth so that you might become a great nation.

  266. Gen45:16 And news of these things went through Pharaoh's house, and it was said that Joseph's brothers were come; and it seemed good to Pharaoh and his servants.

  267. Gen45:26 And they said to him, Joseph is living, and is ruler over all the land of Egypt. And at this word Jacob was quite overcome, for he had no faith in it.

  268. Gen45:27 And they gave him an account of everything Joseph had said to them; and when he saw the carts which Joseph had sent for them, his spirit came back to him:

  269. Gen46:3 And he said, I am God, the God of your father: go down to Egypt without fear, for I will make a great nation of you there:

  270. Gen46:4 I will go down with you to Egypt, and I will see that you come back again, and at your death Joseph will put his hands on your eyes.

  271. Gen46:5 Then Jacob went on from Beer-sheba; and the sons of Jacob took their father and their little ones and their wives in the carts which Pharaoh had sent for them.

  272. Gen46:29 And Joseph got his carriage ready and went to Goshen for the meeting with his father; and when he came before him, he put his arms round his neck, weeping.

  273. Gen46:30 And Israel said to Joseph, Now that I have seen you living again, I am ready for death.

  274. Gen47:4 And they said to Pharaoh, We have come to make a living in this land, because we have no grass for our flocks in the land of Canaan; so now let your servants make a place for themselves in the land of Goshen.

  275. Gen47:5 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, Let them have the land of Goshen; and if there are any able men among them, put them over my cattle.

  276. Gen47:15 And when all the money in Egypt and Canaan was gone, the Egyptians came to Joseph, and said, Give us bread; would you have us come to destruction before your eyes? for we have no more money.

  277. Gen47:24 And when the grain is cut, you are to give a fifth part to Pharaoh, and four parts will be yours for seed and food, and for your families and your little ones.

  278. Gen47:29 And the time of his death came near, and he sent for his son Joseph and said to him, If now I am dear to you, put your hand under my leg and take an oath that you will not put me to rest in Egypt;

  279. Gen48:5 And now your two sons who came to birth in Egypt before I came to you here, are mine; Ephraim and Manasseh will be mine, in the same way as Reuben and Simeon are.

  280. Gen48:7 And as for me, when I came from Paddan, death overtook Rachel on the way, when we were still some distance from Ephrath; and I put her to rest there on the road to Ephrath, which is Beth-lehem.

  281. Gen48:10 Now because Israel was old, his eyes were no longer clear, and he was not able to see. So he made them come near to him, and he gave them a kiss, folding them in his arms.

  282. Gen48:11 And Israel said to Joseph, I had no hope of seeing your face again, but God in his mercy has let me see you and your children.

  283. Gen48:20 So he gave them his blessing that day, saying, You will be the sign of blessing in Israel, for they will say, May God make you like Ephraim and Manasseh; and he put Ephraim before Manasseh.

  284. Gen49:15 And he saw that rest was good and the land was pleasing; so he let them put weights on his back and became a servant.

  285. Gen50:2 And Joseph gave orders to his servants who had the necessary knowledge, to make his father's body ready, folding it in linen with spices, and they did so.

  286. Gen50:3 And the forty days needed for making the body ready went by: and there was weeping for him among the Egyptians for seventy days.

  287. Gen50:4 And when the days of weeping for him were past, Joseph said to the servants of Pharaoh, If now you have love for me, say these words to Pharaoh:

  288. Gen50:5 My father made me take an oath, saying, When I am dead, put me to rest in the place I have made ready for myself in the land of Canaan. So now let me go and put my father in his last resting-place, and I will come back again.

  289. Gen50:7 So Joseph went up to put his father in his last resting-place; and with him went all the servants of Pharaoh, and the chief men of his house and all the chiefs of the land of Egypt,

  290. Gen50:14 And when his father had been put to rest, Joseph and his brothers and all who had gone with him, went back to Egypt.

  291. Gen50:16 So they sent word to Joseph, saying, Your father, before his death, gave us orders, saying,

  292. Gen50:20 As for you, it was in your mind to do me evil, but God has given a happy outcome, the salvation of numbers of people, as you see today.

  293. Gen50:24 Then Joseph said to his brothers, The time of my death has come; but God will keep you in mind and take you out of this land into the land which he gave by his oath to Abraham and Isaac and Jacob.

  294. Gen50:25 Then Joseph made the children of Israel take an oath, saying, God will certainly give effect to his word, and you are to take my bones away from here.

  295. Exo1:22 And Pharaoh gave orders to all his people, saying, Every son who comes to birth is to be put into the river, but every daughter may go on living.

  296. Exo2:4 And his sister took her place at a distance to see what would become of him.

  297. Exo2:5 Now Pharaoh's daughter came down to the Nile to take a bath, while her women were walking by the riverside; and she saw the basket among the river-plants, and sent her servant-girl to get it.

  298. Exo2:14 And he said, Who made you a ruler and a judge over us? are you going to put me to death as you did the Egyptian? And Moses was in fear, and said, It is clear that the thing has come to light.

  299. Exo2:15 Now when Pharaoh had news of this, he would have put Moses to death. But Moses went in flight from Pharaoh into the land of Midian: and he took his seat by a water-spring.

  300. Exo2:18 And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How is it that you have come back so quickly today?

  301. Exo2:19 And they said, An Egyptian came to our help against the keepers of sheep and got water for us and gave it to the flock.

  302. Exo2:21 And Moses was happy to go on living with the man; and he gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses.

  303. Exo3:4 And when the Lord saw him turning to one side to see, God said his name out of the tree, crying, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

  304. Exo3:7 And God said, Truly, I have seen the grief of my people in Egypt, and their cry because of their cruel masters has come to my ears; for I have knowledge of their sorrows;

  305. Exo3:16 Go and get together the chiefs of the children of Israel, and say to them, The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, has been seen by me, and has said, Truly I have taken up your cause, because of what is done to you in Egypt;

  306. Exo3:19 And I am certain that the king of Egypt will not let you go without being forced.

  307. Exo4:14 And the Lord was angry with Moses, and said, Is there not Aaron, your brother, the Levite? To my knowledge he is good at talking. And now he is coming out to you: and when he sees you he will be glad in his heart.

  308. Exo4:21 And the Lord said to Moses, When you go back to Egypt, see that you do before Pharaoh all the wonders which I have given you power to do: but I will make his heart hard and he will not let the people go.

  309. Exo4:27 And the Lord said to Aaron, Go into the waste land and you will see Moses. So he went and came across Moses at the mountain of God, and gave him a kiss.

  310. Exo5:6 The same day Pharaoh gave orders to the overseers and those who were responsible for the work, saying,

  311. Exo5:7 Give these men no more dry stems for their brick-making as you have been doing; let them go and get the material for themselves.

  312. Exo5:8 But see that they make the same number of bricks as before, and no less: for they have no love for work; and so they are crying out and saying, Let us go and make an offering to our God.

  313. Exo5:10 And the overseers of the people and their responsible men went out and said to the people, Pharaoh says, I will give you no more dry stems.

  314. Exo5:13 And the overseers went on driving them and saying, Do your full day's work as before when there were dry stems for you.

  315. Exo5:14 And the responsible men of the children of Israel, whom Pharaoh's overseers had put over them, were given blows, and they said to them, Why have you not done your regular work, in making bricks as before?

  316. Exo5:15 Then the responsible men of the children of Israel came to Pharaoh, protesting and saying, Why are you acting in this way to your servants?

  317. Exo5:19 Then the responsible men of the children of Israel saw that they were purposing evil when they said, The number of bricks which you have to make every day will be no less than before.

  318. Exo5:20 And they came face to face with Moses and Aaron, who were in their way when they came out from Pharaoh:

  319. Exo5:21 And they said to them, May the Lord take note of you and be your judge; for you have given Pharaoh and his servants a bad opinion of us, putting a sword in their hands for our destruction.

  320. Exo6:4 And I made an agreement with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their wanderings.

  321. Exo6:8 And I will be your guide into the land which I made an oath to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it to you for your heritage: I am Yahweh.

  322. Exo6:10 And the Lord said to Moses,

  323. Exo6:12 And Moses, answering the Lord, said, See, the children of Israel will not give ear to me; how then will Pharaoh give ear to me, whose lips are unclean?

  324. Exo6:29 The Lord said to Moses, I am the Lord: say to Pharaoh, king of Egypt, everything I am saying to you.

  325. Exo7:5 And the Egyptians will see that I am the Lord, when my hand is stretched out over Egypt, and I take the children of Israel out from among them.

  326. Exo7:8 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,

  327. Exo7:9 If Pharaoh says to you, Let me see a wonder: then say to Aaron, Take your rod and put it down on the earth before Pharaoh so that it may become a snake.

  328. Exo7:15 Go to Pharaoh in the morning; when he goes out to the water, you will be waiting for him by the edge of the Nile, with the rod which was turned into a snake in your hand;

  329. Exo7:16 And say to him, The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to you, saying, Let my people go so that they may give me worship in the waste land; but up to now you have not given ear to his words.

  330. Exo7:18 And the fish in the Nile will come to destruction, and the river will send up a bad smell, and the Egyptians will not be able, for disgust, to make use of the water of the Nile for drinking.

  331. Exo7:21 And the fish in the Nile came to destruction, and a bad smell went up from the river, and the Egyptians were not able to make use of the water of the Nile for drinking; and there was blood through all the land of Egypt.

  332. Exo7:24 And all the Egyptians made holes round about the Nile to get drinking-water, for they were not able to make use of the Nile water.

  333. Exo8:26 And Moses said, It is not right to do so; for we make our offerings of that to which the Egyptians give worship; and if we do so before their eyes, certainly we will be stoned.

  334. Exo8:28 Then Pharaoh said, I will let you go to make an offering to the Lord your God in the waste land; but do not go very far away, and make prayer for me.

  335. Exo8:29 And Moses said, When I go out from you I will make prayer to the Lord that the cloud of flies may go away from Pharaoh and from his people and from his servants tomorrow: only let Pharaoh no longer by deceit keep back the people from making their offering to the Lord.

  336. Exo9:5 And the time was fixed by the Lord, and he said, Tomorrow the Lord will do this thing in the land.

  337. Exo9:11 And the wonder-workers were not able to take their places before Moses, because of the disease; for the disease was on the wonder-workers and on all the Egyptians.

  338. Exo9:28 Make prayer to the Lord; for there has been enough of these thunderings of God and this ice-storm; and I will let you go and will keep you no longer.

  339. Exo9:29 And Moses said, When I am gone outside the town, my hands will be stretched out to the Lord; the thunders and the ice-storm will come to an end, so that you may see that the earth is the Lord's.

  340. Exo9:34 But when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the ice-storm and the thunders were ended, he went on sinning, and made his heart hard, he and his servants.

  341. Exo10:1 And the Lord said to Moses, Go in to Pharaoh: for I have made his heart and the hearts of his servants hard, so that I may let my signs be seen among them:

  342. Exo10:5 And the face of the earth will be covered with them, so that you will not be able to see the earth: and they will be the destruction of everything which up to now has not been damaged, everything which was not crushed by the ice-storm, and every tree still living in your fields.

  343. Exo10:16 Then Pharaoh quickly sent for Moses and Aaron, and said, I have done evil against the Lord your God and against you.

  344. Exo10:26 So our cattle will have to go with us, not one may be kept back; for they are needed for the worship of the Lord our God; we have no knowledge what offering we have to give till we come to the place.

  345. Exo10:28 And Pharaoh said to him, Go away from me, take care that you come not again before me; for the day when you see my face again will be your last.

  346. Exo10:29 And Moses said, You say truly; I will not see your face again.

  347. Exo11:8 And all these your servants will come to me, going down on their faces before me and saying, Go out, and all your people with you: and after that I will go out. And he went away from Pharaoh burning with wrath.

  348. Exo11:9 And the Lord said to Moses, Pharaoh will not give ear to you, so that my wonders may be increased in the land of Egypt.

  349. Exo12:1 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt,

  350. Exo12:3 Say to all the children of Israel when they are come together, In the tenth day of this month every man is to take a lamb, by the number of their fathers' families, a lamb for every family:

  351. Exo12:4 And if the lamb is more than enough for the family, let that family and its nearest neighbour have a lamb between them, taking into account the number of persons and how much food is needed for every man.

  352. Exo12:23 For the Lord will go through the land, sending death on the Egyptians; and when he sees the blood on the two sides and the top of the door, the Lord will go over your door and will not let death come in for your destruction.

  353. Exo12:27 Then you will say, This is the offering of the Lord's Passover; for he went over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he sent death on the Egyptians, and kept our families safe. And the people gave worship with bent heads.

  354. Exo12:48 And if a man from another country is living with you, and has a desire to keep the Passover to the Lord, let all the males of his family undergo circumcision, and then let him come near and keep it; for he will then be as one of your people; but no one without circumcision may keep it.

  355. Exo13:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  356. Exo13:3 And Moses said to the people, Let this day, on which you came out of Egypt, out of your prison-house, be kept for ever in memory; for by the strength of his hand the Lord has taken you out from this place; let no leavened bread be used.

  357. Exo13:5 And it will be that, when the Lord takes you into the land of the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Amorite and the Hivite and the Jebusite, the land which he made an oath to your fathers that he would give you, a land flowing with milk and honey, you will do this act of worship in this month.

  358. Exo13:8 And you will say to your son in that day, It is because of what the Lord did for me when I came out of Egypt.

  359. Exo13:14 And when your son says to you in time to come, What is the reason for this? say to him, By the strength of his hand the Lord took us out of Egypt, out of the prison-house:

  360. Exo13:17 Now after Pharaoh had let the people go, God did not take them through the land of the Philistines, though that was near: for God said, If the people see war, they may have a change of heart and go back to Egypt.

  361. Exo13:19 And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, for Joseph had made the children of Israel take an oath, saying, God will certainly keep you in mind; and you are to take my bones away with you.

  362. Exo13:21 And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud, guiding them on their way; and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light: so that they were able to go on day and night:

  363. Exo14:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  364. Exo14:5 And word came to Pharaoh of the flight of the people: and the feeling of Pharaoh and of his servants about the people was changed, and they said, Why have we let Israel go, so that they will do no more work for us?

  365. Exo14:11 And they said to Moses, Was there no resting-place for the dead in Egypt, that you have taken us away to come to our death in the waste land? why have you taken us out of Egypt?

  366. Exo14:12 Did we not say to you in Egypt, Let us be as we are, working for the Egyptians? for it is better to be the servants of the Egyptians than to come to our death in the waste land.

  367. Exo14:13 But Moses said, Keep where you are and have no fear; now you will see the salvation of the Lord which he will give you today; for the Egyptians whom you see today you will never see again.

  368. Exo14:27 And when Moses' hand was stretched out over the sea, at dawn the sea came flowing back, meeting the Egyptians in their flight, and the Lord sent destruction on the Egyptians in the middle of the sea.

  369. Exo15:1 Then Moses and the children of Israel made this song to the Lord, and said, I will make a song to the Lord, for he is lifted up in glory: the horse and the horseman he has sent down into the sea.

  370. Exo15:17 You will take them in, planting them in the mountain of your heritage, the place, O Lord, where you have made your house, the holy place, O Lord, the building of your hands.

  371. Exo15:21 And Miriam, answering, said, Make a song to the Lord, for he is lifted up in glory; the horse and the horseman he has sent into the sea.

  372. Exo15:23 And when they came to Marah, the water was no good for drinking, for the waters of Marah were bitter, which is why it was named Marah.

  373. Exo15:24 And the people, crying out against Moses, said, What are we to have for drink?

  374. Exo15:26 And he said, If with all your heart you will give attention to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in his eyes, giving ear to his orders and keeping his laws, I will not put on you any of the diseases which I put on the Egyptians: for I am the Lord your life-giver.

  375. Exo16:1 And they went on their way from Elim, and all the children of Israel came into the waste land of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after they went out of the land of Egypt.

  376. Exo16:3 And the children of Israel said to them, It would have been better for the Lord to have put us to death in the land of Egypt, where we were seated by the flesh-pots and had bread enough for our needs; for you have taken us out to this waste of sand, to put all this people to death through need of food.

  377. Exo16:7 And in the morning you will see the glory of the Lord; for your angry words against the Lord have come to his ears: and what are we that you are crying out against us?

  378. Exo16:8 And Moses said, The Lord will give you meat for your food at evening, and in the morning bread in full measure; for your outcry against the Lord has come to his ears: for what are we? your outcry is not against us but against the Lord.

  379. Exo16:11 And the Lord said to Moses,

  380. Exo16:12 The outcry of the children of Israel has come to my ears: say to them now, At nightfall you will have meat for your food, and in the morning bread in full measure; and you will see that I am the Lord your God.

  381. Exo16:27 But still on the seventh day some of the people went out to get it, and there was not any.

  382. Exo16:28 And the Lord said to Moses, How long will you go against my orders and my laws?

  383. Exo16:35 And the children of Israel had manna for their food for forty years, till they came to a land with people in it, till they came to the edge of the land of Canaan.

  384. Exo17:1 And the children of Israel went on from the waste land of Sin, by stages as the Lord gave them orders, and put up their tents in Rephidim: and there was no drinking-water for the people.

  385. Exo17:4 And Moses, crying out to the Lord, said, What am I to do to this people? they are almost ready to put me to death by stoning.

  386. Exo17:7 And he gave that place the name Massah and Meribah, because the children of Israel were angry, and because they put the Lord to the test, saying, Is the Lord with us or not?

  387. Exo17:12 But Moses' hands became tired; so they put a stone under him and he took his seat on it, Aaron and Hur supporting his hands, one on one side and one on the other; so his hands were kept up without falling till the sun went down.

  388. Exo17:14 And the Lord said to Moses, Make a record of this in a book, so that it may be kept in memory, and say it again in the ears of Joshua: that all memory of Amalek is to be completely uprooted from the earth.

  389. Exo18:7 And Moses went out to his father-in-law, and went down on his face before him and gave him a kiss; and they said to one another, Are you well? and they came into the tent.

  390. Exo18:12 Then Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, made a burned offering to God: and Aaron came, with the chiefs of Israel, and had a meal with Moses' father-in-law, before God.

  391. Exo18:13 Now on the day after, Moses took his seat to give decisions for the people: and the people were waiting before Moses from morning till evening.

  392. Exo18:15 And Moses said to his father-in-law, Because the people come to me to get directions from God:

  393. Exo18:18 Your strength and that of the people will be completely used up: this work is more than you are able to do by yourself.

  394. Exo18:23 If you do this, and God gives approval, then you will be able to go on without weariness, and all this people will go to their tents in peace.

  395. Exo19:1 In the third month after the children of Israel went out from Egypt, on the same day, they came into the waste land of Sinai.

  396. Exo19:3 And Moses went up to God, and the voice of the Lord came to him from the mountain, saying, Say to the family of Jacob, and give word to the children of Israel:

  397. Exo19:5 If now you will truly give ear to my voice and keep my agreement, you will be my special property out of all the peoples: for all the earth is mine:

  398. Exo19:12 And let limits be marked out for the people round the mountain, and say to them, Take care not to go up the mountain or near the sides of it: whoever puts his foot on the mountain will certainly come to his death:

  399. Exo19:13 He is not to be touched by a hand, but is to be stoned or have an arrow put through him; man or beast, he is to be put to death: at the long sounding of a horn they may come up to the mountain.

  400. Exo19:17 And Moses made the people come out of their tents and take their places before God; and they came to the foot of the mountain,

  401. Exo19:21 And the Lord said to Moses, Go down and give the people orders to keep back, for fear that a great number of them, forcing their way through to see the Lord, may come to destruction.

  402. Exo19:23 And Moses said to the Lord, The people will not be able to come up the mountain, for you gave us orders to put limits round the mountain, marking it out and making it holy.

  403. Exo19:24 And the Lord said to him, Go down, and you and Aaron may come up; but let not the priests and the people make their way through to the Lord, or he will come on them suddenly.

  404. Exo20:1 And God said all these words:

  405. Exo20:8 Keep in memory the Sabbath and let it be a holy day.

  406. Exo21:5 But if the servant says clearly, My master and my wife and children are dear to me; I have no desire to be free:

  407. Exo21:7 And if a man gives his daughter for a price to be a servant, she is not to go away free as the men-servants do.

  408. Exo21:8 If she is not pleasing to her master who has taken her for himself, let a payment be made for her so that she may go free; her master has no power to get a price for her and send her to a strange land, because he has been false to her.

  409. Exo21:12 He who gives a man a death-blow is himself to be put to death.

  410. Exo21:14 But if a man makes an attack on his neighbour on purpose, to put him to death by deceit, you are to take him from my altar and put him to death.

  411. Exo21:15 Any man who gives a blow to his father or his mother is certainly to be put to death.

  412. Exo21:16 Any man who gets another into his power in order to get a price for him is to be put to death, if you take him in the act.

  413. Exo21:17 Any man cursing his father or his mother is to be put to death.

  414. Exo21:20 If a man gives his man-servant or his woman-servant blows with a rod, causing death, he is certainly to undergo punishment.

  415. Exo21:22 If men, while fighting, do damage to a woman with child, causing the loss of the child, but no other evil comes to her, the man will have to make payment up to the amount fixed by her husband, in agreement with the decision of the judges.

  416. Exo21:28 If an ox comes to be the cause of death to a man or a woman, the ox is to be stoned, and its flesh may not be used for food; but the owner will not be judged responsible.

  417. Exo22:7 If a man puts money or goods in the care of his neighbour to keep for him, and it is taken from the man's house, if they get the thief, he will have to make payment of twice the value.

  418. Exo22:10 If a man puts an ass or an ox or a sheep or any beast into the keeping of his neighbour, and it comes to death or is damaged or is taken away, without any person seeing it:

  419. Exo22:12 But if it is taken from him by a thief, he is to make up for the loss of it to its owner.

  420. Exo22:13 But if it has been damaged by a beast, and he is able to make this clear, he will not have to make payment for what was damaged.

  421. Exo22:16 If a man takes a virgin, who has not given her word to another man, and has connection with her, he will have to give a bride-price for her to be his wife.

  422. Exo22:17 If her father will not give her to him on any account, he will have to give the regular payment for virgins.

  423. Exo22:19 Any man who has sex connection with a beast is to be put to death.

  424. Exo22:23 If you are cruel to them in any way, and their cry comes up to me, I will certainly give ear;

  425. Exo22:26 If ever you take your neighbour's clothing in exchange for the use of your money, let him have it back before the sun goes down:

  426. Exo23:2 Do not be moved to do wrong by the general opinion, or give the support of your words to a wrong decision:

  427. Exo23:5 If you see the ass of one who has no love for you bent down to the earth under the weight which is put on it, you are to come to its help, even against your desire.

  428. Exo23:16 And the feast of the grain-cutting, the first-fruits of your planted fields: and the feast at the start of the year, when you have got in all the fruit from your fields.

  429. Exo23:20 See, I am sending an angel before you, to keep you on your way and to be your guide into the place which I have made ready for you.

  430. Exo23:22 But if you truly give ear to his voice, and do whatever I say, then I will be against those who are against you, fighting those who are fighting you.

  431. Exo25:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  432. Exo25:14 And put the rods through the rings at the sides of the ark, for lifting it.

  433. Exo25:27 The rings are to be fixed under the frame to take the rods with which the table is to be lifted.

  434. Exo27:7 And put the rods through the rings at the two opposite sides of the altar, for lifting it.

  435. Exo28:29 And so Aaron will have the names of the children of Israel on the priest's bag over his heart whenever he goes into the holy place, to keep the memory of them before the Lord.

  436. Exo28:30 And in the bag you are to put the Urim and Thummim, so that they may be on Aaron's heart whenever he goes in before the Lord; and Aaron may have the power of making decisions for the children of Israel before the Lord at all times.

  437. Exo28:35 Aaron is to put it on for his holy work; and the sound of it will be clear, when he goes into the holy place before the Lord, and when he comes out, keeping him safe from death.

  438. Exo28:43 Aaron and his sons are to put these on whenever they go into the Tent of meeting or come near the altar, when they are doing the work of the holy place, so that they may be free from any sin causing death: this is to be an order for him and his seed after him for ever.

  439. Exo29:46 And they will see that I am the Lord their God, who took them out of the land of Egypt, so that I might be ever with them: I am the Lord their God.

  440. Exo30:4 Under the edge on the two opposite sides, you are to make two gold rings, to take the rods for lifting it.

  441. Exo30:11 And the Lord said to Moses,

  442. Exo30:12 When you are taking the number of the children of Israel, let every man who is numbered give to the Lord a price for his life, so that no disease may come on them when they are numbered.

  443. Exo30:15 The man of wealth is to give no more and the poor man no less than the half-shekel of silver, when the offering is made to the Lord as the price for your lives.

  444. Exo30:17 And the Lord said to Moses,

  445. Exo30:18 You are to make a brass washing-vessel, with a brass base; and put it between the Tent of meeting and the altar, with water in it;

  446. Exo30:20 Whenever they go into the Tent of meeting they are to be washed with water, to keep them from death; and whenever they come near to do the work of the altar, or to make an offering by fire to the Lord,

  447. Exo30:22 And the Lord said to Moses,

  448. Exo30:31 And say to the children of Israel, This is to be the Lord's holy oil, from generation to generation.

  449. Exo31:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  450. Exo31:4 To do all sorts of delicate work in gold and silver and brass;

  451. Exo31:5 In cutting stones for framing, and to do every form of woodwork.

  452. Exo31:12 And the Lord said to Moses,

  453. Exo31:13 Say to the children of Israel that they are to keep my Sabbaths; for the Sabbath day is a sign between me and you through all your generations; so that you may see that I am the Lord who makes you holy.

  454. Exo31:14 So you are to keep the Sabbath as a holy day; and anyone not honouring it will certainly be put to death: whoever does any work on that day will be cut off from his people.

  455. Exo31:15 Six days may work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of complete rest, holy to the Lord; whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death.

  456. Exo31:16 And the children of Israel are to keep the Sabbath holy, from generation to generation, by an eternal agreement.

  457. Exo32:1 And when the people saw that Moses was a long time coming down from the mountain, they all came to Aaron and said to him, Come, make us a god to go before us: as for this Moses, who took us up out of the land of Egypt, we have no idea what has become of him.

  458. Exo32:6 So early on the day after they got up and made burned offerings and peace-offerings; and took their seats at the feast, and then gave themselves to pleasure.

  459. Exo32:12 Why let the Egyptians say, He took them out to an evil fate, to put them to death on the mountains, cutting them off from the earth? Let your wrath be turned away from them, and send not this evil on your people.

  460. Exo32:14 So the Lord let himself be turned from his purpose of sending punishment on his people.

  461. Exo32:18 And Moses said, It is not the voice of men who are overcoming in the fight, or the cry of those who have been overcome; it is the sound of songs which comes to my ear.

  462. Exo32:29 And Moses said, You have made yourselves priests to the Lord this day; for every one of you has made the offering of his son and his brother; the blessing of the Lord is on you this day.

  463. Exo32:34 But now, go, take the people into that place of which I have given you word; see, my angel will go before you: but when the time of my judging has come, I will send punishment on them for their sin.

  464. Exo33:1 And the Lord said to Moses, Go forward from this place, you and the people whom you have taken up out of the land of Egypt, to that land about which I made an oath to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, To your seed will I give it.

  465. Exo33:8 And whenever Moses went out to the Tent of meeting, all the people got up and everyone went to the door of his tent, looking after Moses till he went inside the Tent.

  466. Exo33:9 And whenever Moses went into the Tent, the pillar of cloud came down, and took its place by the door of the Tent, as long as the Lord was talking with Moses.

  467. Exo33:16 For is not the fact of your going with us the sign that I and this people have grace in your eyes, so that we, that is, I and your people, are separate from all other people on the face of the earth?

  468. Exo33:20 But it is not possible for you to see my face, for no man may see me and still go on living.

  469. Exo33:22 And when my glory goes by, I will put you in a hole in the rock, covering you with my hand till I have gone past:

  470. Exo34:24 For I will send out the nations before you and make wide the limits of your land; and no man will make an attempt to take your land while you go up to give worship to the Lord, three times in the year.

  471. Exo34:29 Now when Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two stones in his hand, he was not conscious that his face was shining because of his talk with God.

  472. Exo34:30 But when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, and the shining of his face, they would not come near him for fear.

  473. Exo34:34 But whenever Moses went in before the Lord to have talk with him, he took off the veil till he came out. And whenever he came out he said to the children of Israel what he had been ordered to say;

  474. Exo34:35 And the children of Israel saw that the face of Moses was shining: so Moses put the veil over his face again till he went to the Lord.

  475. Exo35:1 And Moses sent for all the children of Israel to come together, and said to them, This is what the Lord has said and these are his orders.

  476. Exo35:4 And Moses said to all the meeting of the children of Israel, This is the order which the Lord has given:

  477. Exo35:29 The children of Israel, every man and woman, from the impulse of their hearts, gave their offerings freely to the Lord for the work which the Lord had given Moses orders to have done.

  478. Exo35:32 As an expert designer of beautiful things, working in gold and silver and brass;

  479. Exo35:33 Trained in the cutting of stones and the ornamenting of wood and in every sort of handwork.

  480. Exo35:35 To them he has given knowledge of all the arts of the handworker, of the designer, and the expert workman; of the maker of needlework in blue and purple and red and the best linen, and of the maker of cloth; in all the arts of the designer and the trained workman they are expert.

  481. Exo36:1 So let Bezalel and Oholiab get to work, with every wise-hearted man to whom the Lord has given wisdom and knowledge, to do whatever is necessary for the ordering of the holy place, as the Lord has given orders.

  482. Exo36:2 Then Moses sent for Bezalel and Oholiab, and for all the wise-hearted men to whom the Lord had given wisdom, even everyone who was moved by the impulse of his heart to come and take part in the work:

  483. Exo36:3 And they took from Moses all the offerings which the children of Israel had given for the building of the holy place. And still they went on giving him more free offerings every morning.

  484. Exo36:5 And said to Moses, The people are giving much more than is needed for the work which the Lord has given us orders to do.

  485. Exo36:6 So Moses made an order and had it given out through all the tents, saying, Let no man or woman make any more offerings for the holy place. So the people were kept from giving more.

  486. Exo36:7 For the material they had was enough and more than enough for all the work which had to be done.

  487. Exo36:33 The middle rod was made to go right through the rings of all the boards from one end to the other.

  488. Exo37:5 These rods he put in the rings at the sides of the ark, for lifting it.

  489. Exo37:14 The rings were fixed under the frame to take the rods with which the table was to be lifted.

  490. Exo37:15 The rods for lifting the table he made of hard wood plated with gold.

  491. Exo37:27 And he made two gold rings, placing them on the two opposite sides under the edge, to take the rods for lifting it.

  492. Exo38:7 He put the rods through the rings at the opposite sides of the altar for lifting it; he made the altar hollow, boarded in with wood.

  493. Exo38:27 Of this silver, a hundred talents was used for making the bases of the pillars of the holy place and of the veil; a talent for every base.

  494. Exo39:3 Hammering the gold into thin plates and cutting it into wires to be worked into the blue and the purple and the red and the linen by the designer.

  495. Exo39:31 It was fixed to the head-dress by a blue cord, as the Lord had given orders to Moses.

  496. Exo40:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  497. Exo40:30 And between the altar and the Tent of meeting he put the vessel with water in it for washing.

  498. Exo40:32 Whenever they went into the Tent of meeting, and when they came near the altar, as the Lord had given orders to Moses.

  499. Exo40:35 So that Moses was not able to go into the Tent of meeting, because the cloud was resting on it, and the House was full of the glory of the Lord.

  500. Lev1:1 And the voice of the Lord came to Moses out of the Tent of meeting, saying,

  501. Lev2:6 Let it be broken into bits, and put oil on it; it is a meal offering.

  502. Lev4:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  503. Lev4:2 Say to the children of Israel: These are the offerings of anyone who does wrong through error, doing any of the things which by the Lord's order are not to be done:

  504. Lev4:27 And if any one of the common people does wrong in error, doing any of the things which the Lord has given orders are not to be done, causing sin to come on him;

  505. Lev5:14 And the Lord said to Moses,

  506. Lev5:19 It is an offering for his error: he is certainly responsible before the Lord.

  507. Lev5:20 And the Lord said to Moses,

  508. Lev5:22 Or has taken a false oath about the loss of something which he has come across by chance; if a man has done any of these evil things,

  509. Lev6:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  510. Lev6:2 Give orders to Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law for the burned offering: the offering is to be on the fire-wood on the altar all night till the morning; and the fire of the altar is to be kept burning.

  511. Lev6:12 And the Lord said to Moses,

  512. Lev6:17 And the Lord said to Moses,

  513. Lev6:18 Say to Aaron and his sons, This is the law for the sin-offering: the sin-offering is to be put to death before the Lord in the same place as the burned offering; it is most holy.

  514. Lev7:22 And the Lord said to Moses,

  515. Lev7:23 Say to the children of Israel: You are not to take any fat, of ox or sheep or goat, for food.

  516. Lev7:24 And the fat of that which comes to a natural death, and the fat of that which is attacked by beasts, may be used for other purposes, but not in any way for food.

  517. Lev7:28 And the Lord said to Moses,

  518. Lev7:29 Say to the children of Israel: He who makes a peace-offering to the Lord, is to give an offering to the Lord out of his peace-offering:

  519. Lev7:36 Which the Lord said the children of Israel were to give them, on the day when he made them his priests. It is their right for ever from generation to generation.

  520. Lev8:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  521. Lev8:5 And Moses said to the people, This is what the Lord has given orders to be done.

  522. Lev8:31 And Moses said to Aaron and to his sons, The flesh is to be cooked in water at the door of the Tent of meeting, and there you are to take it as food, together with the bread in the basket, as I have given orders, saying, It is the food of Aaron and his sons.

  523. Lev8:33 And you are not to go out from the door of the Tent of meeting for seven days, till the days for making you priest are ended; for this will be the work of seven days.

  524. Lev9:3 And say to the children of Israel: Take a he-goat for a sin-offering, and a young ox and a lamb, in their first year, without any mark on them, for a burned offering;

  525. Lev9:4 And an ox and a male sheep for peace-offerings, to be put to death before the Lord; and a meal offering mixed with oil: for this day you are to see the Lord.

  526. Lev9:22 And Aaron, lifting up his hands to the people, gave them a blessing; and he came down from offering the sin-offering, and the burned offering, and the peace-offerings.

  527. Lev10:3 Then Moses said to Aaron, This is what the Lord said, I will be holy in the eyes of all those who come near to me, and I will be honoured before all the people. And Aaron said nothing.

  528. Lev10:8 And the Lord said to Aaron:

  529. Lev10:9 Take no wine, or strong drink, you or your sons with you, when you go into the Tent of meeting, that it may not be the cause of death to you; this is an order for ever through all your generations.

  530. Lev10:16 And Moses was looking for the goat of the sin-offering, but it was burned; and he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron, who were still living, saying,

  531. Lev10:17 Why did you not make a meal of the sin-offering in the holy place? For it is most holy and he has given it to you, so that the sin of the people may be put on it, to take away their sin before the Lord.

  532. Lev10:18 See, its blood was not taken into the holy place: certainly it was right for you to have taken it as food in the holy place, as I gave orders.

  533. Lev11:1 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,

  534. Lev11:2 Say to the children of Israel: These are the living things which you may have for food among all the beasts on the earth.

  535. Lev12:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  536. Lev12:2 Say to the children of Israel, If a woman is with child and gives birth to a male child, she will be unclean for seven days, as when she is unwell.

  537. Lev12:4 And she will be unclean for thirty-three days till the flow of her blood is stopped; no holy thing may be touched by her, and she may not come into the holy place, till the days for making her clean are ended.

  538. Lev12:6 And when the days are ended for making her clean for a son or a daughter, let her take to the priest at the door of the Tent of meeting, a lamb of the first year for a burned offering and a young pigeon or a dove for a sin-offering:

  539. Lev13:1 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,

  540. Lev13:7 But if the size of the mark on his skin is increased after he has been seen by the priest, let him go to the priest again:

  541. Lev13:12 And if the disease comes out all over his skin, from his head to his feet, as far as the priest is able to see,

  542. Lev13:22 And if it is increasing on the skin, the priest will say that he is unclean: it is a disease.

  543. Lev13:27 And the priest is to see him again on the seventh day; if it is increased in the skin, then the priest will say that he is unclean: it is the leper's disease.

  544. Lev13:35 But if the disease in his skin becomes worse after he has been made clean,

  545. Lev14:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  546. Lev14:33 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,

  547. Lev14:35 Then let the owner of the house come and say to the priest, It seems to me that there is a sort of leper's disease in the house.

  548. Lev14:36 And the priest will give orders for everything to be taken out of the house, before he goes in to see the disease, so that the things in the house may not become unclean; and then the priest is to go in to see the house;

  549. Lev14:37 And if he sees that the walls of the house are marked with hollows of green and red, and if it seems to go deeper than the face of the wall;

  550. Lev14:48 And if the priest comes in, and sees that the disease is not increased after the new paste has been put on the house, then the priest will say that the house is clean, because the disease is gone.

  551. Lev15:1 And the Lord said to Moses and to Aaron,

  552. Lev15:23 Anyone touching anything on the bed or on the thing on which she has been seated, will be unclean till evening.

  553. Lev15:24 And if any man has sex relations with her so that her blood comes on him, he will be unclean for seven days and every bed on which he has been resting will be unclean.

  554. Lev15:32 This is the law for the man who has a flow from his body, or whose seed goes from him so that he is unclean;

  555. Lev16:1 And the Lord said to Moses, after the death of the two sons of Aaron when they took in strange fire before the Lord and death overtook them;

  556. Lev16:17 And no man may be in the Tent of meeting from the time when Aaron goes in to take away sin in the holy place till he comes out, having made himself and his house and all the people of Israel free from sin.

  557. Lev16:23 Then let Aaron come into the Tent of meeting and take off the linen clothing which he put on when he went into the holy place, and put them down there;

  558. Lev17:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  559. Lev17:2 Say to Aaron and to his sons and to all the children of Israel: This is the order which the Lord has given.

  560. Lev17:9 And does not take it to the door of the Tent of meeting to make an offering to the Lord, that man will be cut off from among his people.

  561. Lev18:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  562. Lev18:4 But you are to be guided by my decisions and keep my rules, and be guided by them: I am the Lord your God.

  563. Lev18:18 And you may not take as wife a woman and at the same time her sister, to be in competition with her in her life-time.

  564. Lev18:20 And you may not have sex relations with your neighbour's wife, making yourself unclean with her.

  565. Lev18:23 And you may not have sex relations with a beast, making yourself unclean with it; and a woman may not give herself to a beast: it is an unnatural act.

  566. Lev18:30 So then, keep my orders, so that you may not do any of these disgusting things which were done before you, or make yourselves unclean through them: I am the Lord your God.

  567. Lev19:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  568. Lev19:9 And when you get in the grain from your land, do not let all the grain be cut from the edges of the field, or take up what has been dropped on the earth after the getting in of the grain.

  569. Lev19:31 Do not go after those who make use of spirits, or wonder-workers; do not go in their ways or become unclean through them: I am the Lord your God.

  570. Lev20:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  571. Lev20:2 Again, say to the children of Israel, If any man of the children of Israel, or any other man living in Israel, gives his offspring to Molech, he is certainly to be put to death: he is to be stoned by the people of the land;

  572. Lev20:4 And if the people of the land do not take note of that man when he gives his offspring to Molech, and do not put him to death,

  573. Lev20:5 Then my face will be turned against him and his family, and he and all those who do evil with him will be cut off from among their people.

  574. Lev20:6 And whoever goes after those who make use of spirits and wonder-workers, doing evil with them, against him will my face be turned, and he will be cut off from among his people.

  575. Lev20:9 Every man cursing his father or his mother is certainly to be put to death; because of his curse on his father or his mother, his blood will be on him.

  576. Lev20:10 And if a man has sex relations with another man's wife, even the wife of his neighbour, he and she are certainly to be put to death.

  577. Lev20:11 And the man who has sex relations with his father's wife has put shame on his father: the two of them are to be put to death; their blood will be on them.

  578. Lev20:12 And if a man has sex relations with his son's wife, the two of them are to be put to death: it is unnatural; their blood will be on them.

  579. Lev20:13 And if a man has sex relations with a man, the two of them have done a disgusting thing: let them be put to death; their blood will be on them.

  580. Lev20:15 And if a man has sex relations with a beast, let him be put to death, and let the beast be put to destruction.

  581. Lev20:16 And if a woman goes near a beast and has sex relations with it, you will put an end to the woman and the beast: their blood will be on them.

  582. Lev20:22 So then, keep my rules and my decisions and do them, so that the land which I am giving you as your resting-place may not violently send you out again.

  583. Lev20:24 But I have said to you, You will take their land and I will give it to you for your heritage, a land flowing with milk and honey: I am the Lord your God who have made you separate from all other peoples.

  584. Lev20:27 Any man or woman who makes use of spirits, or who is a wonder-worker, is to be put to death: they are to be stoned with stones: their blood will be on them.

  585. Lev21:9 And if the daughter of a priest makes herself common and by her loose behaviour puts shame on her father, let her be burned with fire.

  586. Lev21:10 And he who is the chief priest among his brothers, on whose head the holy oil has been put, who is marked out to put on the holy robes, may not let his hair go loose or have his clothing out of order as a sign of sorrow.

  587. Lev21:16 And the Lord said to Moses,

  588. Lev21:17 Say to Aaron, If a man of your family, in any generation, is damaged in body, let him not come near to make the offering of the bread of his God.

  589. Lev22:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  590. Lev22:8 That which comes to a natural death, or is attacked by beasts, he may not take as food, for it will make him unclean: I am the Lord.

  591. Lev22:16 So causing sin to come on them when they take their holy things for food: I am the Lord who make them holy.

  592. Lev22:17 And the Lord said to Moses,

  593. Lev22:26 And the Lord said to Moses,

  594. Lev23:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  595. Lev23:9 And the Lord said to Moses,

  596. Lev23:22 And when you get in the grain from your land, do not let all the grain at the edges of the field be cut, and do not take up the grain which has been dropped in the field; let that be for the poor, and for the man from another country: I am the Lord your God.

  597. Lev23:23 And the Lord said to Moses,

  598. Lev23:24 Say to the children of Israel, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, let there be a special day of rest for you, a day of memory, marked by the blowing of horns, a meeting for worship.

  599. Lev23:26 And the Lord said to Moses,

  600. Lev23:33 And the Lord said to Moses,

  601. Lev23:34 Say to the children of Israel, On the fifteenth day of this seventh month let the feast of tents be kept to the Lord for seven days.

  602. Lev23:39 But on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have got in all the fruits of the land, you will keep the feast of the Lord for seven days: the first day will be a Sabbath, and the eighth day the same.

  603. Lev24:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  604. Lev24:12 And they kept him shut up, till a decision might be given by the mouth of the Lord.

  605. Lev24:13 And the Lord said to Moses,

  606. Lev24:15 And say to the children of Israel, As for any man cursing God, his sin will be on his head.

  607. Lev24:16 And he who says evil against the name of the Lord will certainly be put to death; he will be stoned by all the people; the man who is not of your nation and one who is an Israelite by birth, whoever says evil against the holy Name is to be put to death.

  608. Lev24:17 And anyone who takes another's life is certainly to be put to death.

  609. Lev25:1 And the Lord said to Moses on Mount Sinai,

  610. Lev25:7 And for your cattle and the beasts on the land; all the natural increase of the land will be for food.

  611. Lev25:14 And in the business of trading goods for money, do no wrong to one another.

  612. Lev25:16 If the number of years is great, the price will be increased, and if the number of years is small, the price will be less, for it is the produce of a certain number of years which the man is giving you.

  613. Lev25:22 And in the eighth year you will put in your seed, and get your food from the old stores, till the fruit of the ninth year is ready.

  614. Lev25:29 And if a man gives his house in a walled town for money, he has the right to get it back for the space of a full year after he has given it up.

  615. Lev25:38 I am the Lord your God, who took you out of the land of Egypt to give you the land of Canaan, that I might be your God.

  616. Lev25:46 And they will be your children's heritage after you, to keep as their property; they will be your servants for ever; but you may not be hard masters to your countrymen, the children of Israel.

  617. Lev26:15 And if you go against my rules and if you have hate in your souls for my decisions and you do not do all my orders, but go against my agreement;

  618. Lev26:21 And if you still go against me and will not give ear to me, I will put seven times more punishments on you because of your sins.

  619. Lev26:26 When I take away your bread of life, ten women will be cooking bread in one oven, and your bread will be measured out by weight; you will have food but never enough.

  620. Lev26:35 All the days while it is waste will the land have rest, such rest as it never had in your Sabbaths, when you were living in it.

  621. Lev27:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  622. Lev27:13 But if he has a desire to get it back for himself, let him give a fifth more than your value.

  623. Lev27:19 And if the man who has given the field has a desire to get it back, let him give a fifth more than the price at which it was valued and it will be his.

  624. Lev27:21 But the field, when it becomes free at the year of Jubilee, will be holy to the Lord, as a field given under oath: it will be the property of the priest.

  625. Lev27:29 Any man given completely to the Lord may not be got back: he is certainly to be put to death.

  626. Lev27:31 And if a man has a desire to get back any of the tenth part which he has given, let him give a fifth more.

  627. Num1:1 And the Lord said to Moses in the waste land of Sinai, in the Tent of meeting, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they came out of the land of Egypt,

  628. Num1:48 For the Lord said to Moses,

  629. Num1:51 And when the Tent of meeting goes forward, the Levites are to take it down; and when it is to be put up, they are to do it: any strange person who comes near it is to be put to death.

  630. Num2:1 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,

  631. Num3:5 And the Lord said to Moses,

  632. Num3:7 In order that they may be responsible to him and to all Israel for the care of the Tent of meeting, and to do the work of the House;

  633. Num3:8 And they will have the care of all the vessels of the Tent of meeting, and will do for the children of Israel all the necessary work of the House.

  634. Num3:11 And the Lord said to Moses,

  635. Num3:14 And the Lord said to Moses in the waste land of Sinai,

  636. Num3:44 And the Lord said to Moses,

  637. Num4:1 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,

  638. Num4:3 All those from thirty to fifty years old who are able to do the work of the Tent of meeting.

  639. Num4:5 When all the people go forward, Aaron is to go in with his sons, and take down the veil of the curtain, covering the ark of witness with it;

  640. Num4:15 And after the holy place and all its vessels have been covered up by Aaron and his sons, when the tents of the people go forward, the sons of Kohath are to come and take it up; but the holy things may not be touched by them for fear of death.

  641. Num4:17 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,

  642. Num4:19 But do this to them, so that life and not death may be theirs when they come near the most holy things; let Aaron and his sons go in and give to every one his work and that which he is to take up;

  643. Num4:20 But they themselves are not to go in to see the holy place, even for a minute, for fear of death.

  644. Num4:21 And the Lord said to Moses,

  645. Num4:22 Let the sons of Gershon be numbered by families, in the order of their fathers' houses;

  646. Num4:23 All those from thirty to fifty years old who are able to do the work of the Tent of meeting.

  647. Num4:24 This is to be the work of the Gershonites, the things they are to do and take up.

  648. Num4:30 Every one from thirty to fifty years old who is able to do the work of the Tent of meeting.

  649. Num4:47 Those from thirty to fifty years old who were able to do the work of the Tent of meeting and of its transport,

  650. Num5:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  651. Num5:5 And the Lord said to Moses,

  652. Num5:6 Say to the children of Israel, If a man or a woman does any of the sins of men, going against the word of the Lord, and is in the wrong;

  653. Num5:11 And the Lord said to Moses,

  654. Num5:21 Then the priest will put the oath of the curse on the woman, and say to her, May the Lord make you a curse and an oath among your people, sending on you wasting of the legs and disease of the stomach;

  655. Num6:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  656. Num6:2 Say to the children of Israel, If a man or a woman takes an oath to keep himself separate and give himself to the Lord;

  657. Num6:5 All the time he is under his oath let no blade come near his head; till the days while he is separate are ended he is holy and his hair may not be cut.

  658. Num6:13 And this is the law for him who is separate, when the necessary days are ended: he is to come to the door of the Tent of meeting,

  659. Num6:22 And the Lord said to Moses,

  660. Num6:23 Say to Aaron and his sons, These are the words of blessing which are to be used by you in blessing the children of Israel; say to them,

  661. Num7:4 And the Lord said to Moses,

  662. Num7:5 Take the things from them, to be used for the work of the Tent of meeting; and give them to the Levites, to every man what is needed for his work.

  663. Num7:89 And when Moses went into the Tent of meeting to have talk with him, then the Voice came to his ears from over the cover which was on the ark of witness, from between the two winged ones. And he had talk with him.

  664. Num8:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  665. Num8:5 And the Lord said to Moses,

  666. Num8:11 And Aaron is to give the Levites to the Lord as a wave offering from the children of Israel, so that they may do the Lord's work.

  667. Num8:15 After that, the Levites will go in to do whatever has to be done in the Tent of meeting; you are to make them clean and give them as a wave offering.

  668. Num8:19 And I have given them to Aaron and to his sons, from among the children of Israel, to undertake for them all the work of the Tent of meeting, and to take away sin from the children of Israel so that no evil may come on them when they come near the holy place.

  669. Num8:22 And then the Levites went in to do their work in the Tent of meeting before Aaron and his sons: all the orders which the Lord had given Moses about the Levites were put into effect.

  670. Num8:23 And the Lord said to Moses,

  671. Num8:24 This is the rule for the Levites: those of twenty-five years old and over are to go in and do the work of the Tent of meeting;

  672. Num8:26 But be with their brothers in the Tent of meeting, taking care of it but doing no work. This is what you are to do in connection with the Levites and their work.

  673. Num9:1 And the Lord said to Moses, in the waste land of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt,

  674. Num9:4 And Moses gave orders to the children of Israel to keep the Passover.

  675. Num9:6 And there were certain men who were unclean because of a dead body, so that they were not able to keep the Passover on that day; and they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day:

  676. Num9:9 And the Lord said to Moses,

  677. Num9:10 Say to the children of Israel, If any one of you or of your families is unclean because of a dead body, or is on a journey far away, still he is to keep the Passover to the Lord:

  678. Num9:13 But the man who, not being unclean or on a journey, does not keep the Passover, will be cut off from his people: because he did not make the offering of the Lord at the regular time, his sin will be on him.

  679. Num9:22 Or if the cloud came to rest on the House for two days or a month or a year without moving, the children of Israel went on waiting there and did not go on; but whenever it was taken up they went forward on their journey.

  680. Num10:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  681. Num10:21 Then the Kohathites went forward with the holy place; the others put up the House ready for their coming.

  682. Num10:31 And he said, Do not go from us; for you will be eyes for us, guiding us to the right places in the waste land to put up our tents.

  683. Num10:33 So they went forward three days' journey from the mountain of the Lord; and the ark of the Lord's agreement went three days' journey before them, looking for a resting-place for them;

  684. Num10:34 And by day the cloud of the Lord went over them, when they went forward from the place where they had put up their tents.

  685. Num10:35 And when the ark went forward Moses said, Come up, O Lord, and let the armies of those who are against you be broken, and let your haters go in flight before you.

  686. Num10:36 And when it came to rest, he said, Take rest, O Lord, and give a blessing to the families of Israel.

  687. Num11:9 When the dew came down on the tents at night, the manna came down with it.

  688. Num11:11 And Moses said to the Lord, Why have you done me this evil? and why have I not grace in your eyes, that you have put on me the care of all this people?

  689. Num11:13 Where am I to get flesh to give to all this people? For they are weeping to me and saying, Give us flesh for our food.

  690. Num11:14 I am not able by myself to take the weight of all this people, for it is more than my strength.

  691. Num11:15 If this is to be my fate, put me to death now in answer to my prayer, if I have grace in your eyes; and let me not see my shame.

  692. Num11:18 And say to the people, Make yourselves clean before tomorrow and you will have flesh for your food: for in the ears of the Lord you have been weeping and saying, Who will give us flesh for food? for we were well off in Egypt: and so the Lord will give you flesh, and it will be your food;

  693. Num11:20 But every day for a month, till you are tired of it, turning from it in disgust: because you have gone against the Lord who is with you, and have been weeping before him saying, Why did we come out of Egypt?

  694. Num11:25 Then the Lord came down in the cloud and had talk with him, and put on the seventy men some of the spirit which was on him: now when the spirit came to rest on them, they were like prophets, but only at that time.

  695. Num11:32 And all that day and all night and the day after, the people were taking up the birds; the smallest amount which anyone got was ten homers: and they put them out all round the tents.

  696. Num12:12 Let her not be as one dead, whose flesh is half wasted when he comes out from the body of his mother.

  697. Num12:13 And Moses, crying to the Lord, said, Let my prayer come before you, O God, and make her well.

  698. Num12:14 And the Lord said to Moses, If her father had put a mark of shame on her, would she not be shamed for seven days? Let her be shut up outside the tent-circle for seven days, and after that she may come in again.

  699. Num13:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  700. Num13:16 These are the names of the men whom Moses sent to get knowledge about the land. And Moses gave to Hoshea, the son of Nun, the name of Joshua.

  701. Num13:17 So Moses sent them to have a look at the land of Canaan, and said to them, Go up into the South and into the hill-country;

  702. Num13:25 At the end of forty days they came back from viewing the land.

  703. Num13:30 Then Caleb made signs to the people to keep quiet, and said to Moses, Let us go up straight away and take this land; for we are well able to overcome it.

  704. Num13:31 But the men who had gone up with him said, We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.

  705. Num13:32 And they gave the children of Israel a bad account of the land they had been to see, saying, This land through which we went is a land causing destruction to those living in it; and all the people we saw there are men of more than common size.

  706. Num14:3 Why is the Lord taking us into this land to come to our death by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will get into strange hands: would it not be better for us to go back to Egypt?

  707. Num14:7 Said to all the children of Israel, This land which we went through to see is a very good land.

  708. Num14:10 But all the people said they were to be stoned. Then the glory of the Lord was seen in the Tent of meeting, before the eyes of all the children of Israel.

  709. Num14:15 Now if you put to death all this people as one man, then the nations who have had word of your glory will say,

  710. Num14:16 Because the Lord was not able to take this people into the land which he made an oath to give them, he sent destruction on them in the waste land.

  711. Num14:17 So now, may my prayer come before you, and let the power of the Lord be great, as you said:

  712. Num14:26 Then the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,

  713. Num14:33 And your children will be wanderers in the waste land for forty years, undergoing punishment for your false ways, till your bodies become dust in the waste land.

  714. Num14:36 And the men whom Moses sent to see the land, and who, by the bad account they gave of the land, were the cause of the outcry the people made against Moses,

  715. Num14:38 But Joshua, the son of Nun, and Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, of those who went to see the land, were not touched by disease.

  716. Num14:40 And early in the morning they got up and went to the top of the mountain, saying, We are here and we will go up to the place which the Lord said he would give us: for we have done wrong.

  717. Num14:44 But they gave no attention to his words and went to the top of the mountain, though Moses and the ark of the Lord's agreement did not go out of the tent-circle.

  718. Num15:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  719. Num15:3 And are going to make an offering by fire to the Lord, a burned offering or an offering in connection with an oath, or an offering freely given, or at your regular feasts, an offering for a sweet smell to the Lord, from the herd or the flock:

  720. Num15:17 And the Lord said to Moses,

  721. Num15:18 Say to the children of Israel, When you come into the land where I am guiding you,

  722. Num15:19 Then, when you take for your food the produce of the land, you are to give an offering lifted up before the Lord.

  723. Num15:28 And the priest will take away the sin of the person who has done wrong, if the wrong was done unconsciously, and he will have forgiveness.

  724. Num15:35 Then the Lord said to Moses, Certainly the man is to be put to death: let him be stoned by all the people outside the tent-circle.

  725. Num15:37 And the Lord said to Moses,

  726. Num16:5 And he said to Korah and his band, In the morning the Lord will make clear who are his, and who is holy, and who may come near him: the man of his selection will be caused to come near him.

  727. Num16:9 Does it seem only a small thing to you that the God of Israel has made you separate from the rest of Israel, letting you come near himself to do the work of the House of the Lord, and to take your place before the people to do what has to be done for them;

  728. Num16:12 Then Moses sent for Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab: and they said, We will not come up:

  729. Num16:20 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,

  730. Num16:23 And the Lord said to Moses,

  731. Num16:24 Say to the people, Come away from the tent of Korah Dathan, and Abiram.

  732. Num16:26 And he said to the people, Come away now from the tents of these evil men, without touching anything of theirs, or you may be taken in the punishment of their sins.

  733. Num16:28 And Moses said, Now you will see that the Lord has sent me to do all these works, and I have not done them of myself.

  734. Num16:36 And the Lord said to Moses,

  735. Num16:41 But on the day after, all the children of Israel made an outcry against Moses and against Aaron, saying, You have put to death the Lord's people.

  736. Num16:44 And the Lord said to Moses,

  737. Num17:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  738. Num17:12 And the children of Israel said to Moses, Truly, destruction has come on us; an evil fate has overtaken us all.

  739. Num17:13 Death will overtake everyone who comes near, who comes near the House of the Lord: are we all to come to destruction?

  740. Num18:6 Now, see, I have taken your brothers the Levites from among the children of Israel: they are given to you and to the Lord, to do the work of the Tent of meeting.

  741. Num18:15 The first birth of every living thing which is offered to the Lord, of man or beast, is to be yours; but for the first sons of man payment is to be made, and for the first young of unclean beasts.

  742. Num18:22 In future the children of Israel are not to come near the Tent of meeting, so that death may not come to them because of sin.

  743. Num18:25 And the Lord said to Moses,

  744. Num19:1 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,

  745. Num19:2 This is the rule of the law which the Lord has made, saying, Give orders to the children of Israel to give you a red cow without any mark on her, and on which the yoke has never been put:

  746. Num20:3 And the people were angry with Moses and said, If only death had overtaken us when our brothers came to their death before the Lord!

  747. Num20:4 Why have you taken the Lord's people into this waste, for death to come to us and to our cattle there?

  748. Num20:5 Why have you made us come out of Egypt into this evil place? This is no place of seed or figs or vines or other fruits, and there is no water for drinking.

  749. Num20:7 And the Lord said to Moses,

  750. Num20:18 And Edom said, You are not to go through my land, for if you do I will come out against you with the sword.

  751. Num20:20 But he said, You are not to go through. And Edom came out against them in his strength, with a great army.

  752. Num20:21 So Edom would not let Israel go through his land; and Israel went in another direction.

  753. Num20:23 And at Mount Hor, at the edge of the land of Edom, the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,

  754. Num21:2 Then Israel made an oath to the Lord, and said, If you will give up this people into my hands, then I will send complete destruction on all their towns.

  755. Num21:4 Then they went on from Mount Hor by the way to the Red Sea, going round the land of Edom: and the spirit of the people was overcome with weariness on the way.

  756. Num21:5 And crying out against God and against Moses, they said, Why have you taken us out of Egypt to come to our death in the waste land? For there is no bread and no water, and this poor bread is disgusting to us.

  757. Num21:15 The slope of the valleys going down to the tents of Ar and touching the edge of Moab.

  758. Num21:21 And Israel sent men to Sihon, king of the Amorites, saying,

  759. Num21:23 And Sihon would not let Israel go through his land; but got all his people together and went out against Israel into the waste land, as far as Jahaz, to make war on Israel.

  760. Num21:33 Then turning they went up by the way of Bashan; and Og, king of Bashan, went out against them with all his people, to the fight at Edrei.

  761. Num22:4 Then Moab said to the responsible men of Midian, It is clear that this great people will be the destruction of everything round us, making a meal of us as the ox does of the grass of the field. At that time Balak, the son of Zippor, was king of Moab.

  762. Num22:5 So he sent men to Balaam, son of Beor, at Pethor by the River in the land of the children of his people, saying to him, See, a people has come out of Egypt, covering all the face of the earth, and they have put up their tents opposite to me:

  763. Num22:13 In the morning Balaam got up and said to the chiefs of Balak, Go back to your land, for the Lord will not let me go with you.

  764. Num22:14 So the chiefs of Moab went back to Balak and said, Balaam will not come with us.

  765. Num22:15 So Balak sent more chiefs, greater in number and of higher position than the others.

  766. Num22:16 And they came to Balaam and said, Balak, son of Zippor, says, Let nothing keep you from coming to me:

  767. Num22:18 But Balaam, in answer; said to the servants of Balak, Even if Balak gave me his house full of silver and gold, it would not be possible for me to do anything more or less than the orders of the Lord my God.

  768. Num22:20 And that night God came to Balaam and said to him, If these men have come for you, go with them: but do only what I say to you.

  769. Num22:26 Then the angel of the Lord went further, stopping in a narrow place where there was no room for turning to the right or to the left.

  770. Num22:30 And the ass said to Balaam, Am I not your ass upon which you have gone all your life till this day? and have I ever done this to you before? And he said, No.

  771. Num22:34 And Balaam said to the angel of the Lord, I have done wrong, for I did not see that you were in the way against me: but now, if it is evil in your eyes, I will go back again.

  772. Num22:36 Now Balak, hearing that Balaam had come, went to the chief town of Moab, on the edge of the Arnon, in the farthest part of the land, for the purpose of meeting him.

  773. Num22:37 And Balak said to Balaam, Did I not send to you, requesting you with all my heart to come to me? why did you not come? am I not able to give you a place of honour?

  774. Num23:3 Then Balaam said to Balak, Take your place by your burned offering, and I will go and see if the Lord comes to me: and I will give you word of whatever he says to me. And he went to an open place on a hill.

  775. Num23:11 Then Balak said to Balaam, What have you done to me? I sent for you so that my haters might be cursed, and see, you have given them a blessing.

  776. Num23:25 Then Balak said to Balaam, If you will not put a curse on them, at all events do not give them a blessing.

  777. Num23:26 But Balaam in answer said to Balak, Did I not say to you, I may only do what the Lord says?

  778. Num24:1 Now when Balaam saw that it was the Lord's pleasure to give his blessing to Israel, he did not, as at other times, make use of secret arts, but turning his face to the waste land,

  779. Num24:10 Then Balak was full of wrath against Balaam, and angrily waving his hands he said to Balaam, I sent for you so that those who are against me might be cursed, but now, see, three times you have given them a blessing.

  780. Num24:12 Then Balaam said to Balak, Did I not say to the men you sent to me,

  781. Num24:13 Even if Balak gave me his house full of silver and gold, it would not be possible for me to go outside the orders of the Lord, doing good or evil at the impulse of my mind; whatever the Lord says I will say?

  782. Num24:23 Then he went on with his story and said, But who may keep his life when God does this?

  783. Num25:1 Now when Israel was living in Shittim the people became false to the Lord, doing evil with the daughters of Moab:

  784. Num25:10 And the Lord said to Moses,

  785. Num25:16 Then the Lord said to Moses,

  786. Num25:17 Take up arms against the Midianites and overcome them;

  787. Num26:1 Now after the disease was over, the Lord said to Moses and Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest,

  788. Num26:3 So Moses and Eleazar the priest gave them the order in the lowlands of Moab by Jordan at Jericho, saying,

  789. Num26:10 And they went down into the open mouth of the earth, together with Korah, when death overtook him and all his band; at the time when two hundred and fifty men were burned in the fire, and they became a sign.

  790. Num26:52 And the Lord said to Moses,

  791. Num26:65 For the Lord had said of them, Death will certainly overtake them in the waste land. And of them all, only Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua, the son of Nun, were still living.

  792. Num27:2 They came before Moses and Eleazar the priest and the chiefs and all the people at the door of the Tent of meeting, and said,

  793. Num27:6 And the Lord said to Moses,

  794. Num27:7 What the daughters of Zelophehad say is right: certainly you are to give them a heritage among their father's brothers: and let the property which would have been their father's go to them.

  795. Num27:8 And say to the children of Israel, If a man has no son at the time of his death, let his heritage go to his daughter.

  796. Num27:15 Then Moses said to the Lord,

  797. Num28:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  798. Num30:2 And Moses said to the heads of the tribes of the children of Israel, This is the order of the Lord.

  799. Num30:3 When a man takes an oath to the Lord, or gives an undertaking having the force of an oath, let him not go back from his word, but let him do whatever he has said he will do.

  800. Num30:6 But if her father, hearing of it, makes her take back her word, then the oaths or the undertakings she has given will have no force; and she will have forgiveness from the Lord, because her oath was broken by her father.

  801. Num30:8 If her husband, hearing of it, says nothing to her at the time, then the oaths she made and the undertakings she gave will have force.

  802. Num30:9 But if her husband, hearing of it, makes her take it back, then the oath she made and the undertaking she gave without thought will have no force or effect, and she will have the Lord's forgiveness.

  803. Num30:13 But if her husband, on hearing of it, made them without force or effect, then whatever she has said about her oaths or her undertaking has no force: her husband has made them without effect, and she will have the Lord's forgiveness.

  804. Num30:15 But if the days go on, and her husband says nothing whatever to her, then he is giving the support of his authority to her oaths and undertakings, because at the time of hearing them he said nothing to her.

  805. Num30:16 But if at some time after hearing of them, he makes them without force, then he is responsible for her wrongdoing.

  806. Num31:1 Then the Lord said to Moses,

  807. Num31:3 So Moses said to the people, Let men from among you be armed for war to put into effect against Midian the Lord's punishment on them.

  808. Num31:13 Then Moses and Eleazar the priest and the chiefs of the people went out to them before they had come into the tent-circle.

  809. Num31:16 It was these who, moved by Balaam, were the cause of Israel's sin against the Lord in the question of Peor, because of which disease came on the people of the Lord.

  810. Num31:25 And the Lord said to Moses,

  811. Num32:2 The children of Gad and the children of Reuben came and said to Moses and to Eleazar the priest and to the chiefs of the meeting,

  812. Num32:7 Why would you take from the children of Israel the desire to go over into the land which the Lord has given them?

  813. Num32:8 So did your fathers, when I sent them from Kadesh-barnea to see the land.

  814. Num32:9 For when they went up to the valley of Eshcol, and saw the land, they took from the children of Israel the desire to go into the land which the Lord had given them.

  815. Num32:10 And at that time the Lord was moved to wrath, and made an oath, saying,

  816. Num32:13 Then the Lord was angry with Israel, and he made them wanderers in the waste land for forty years? till all that generation who had done evil in the eyes of the Lord was dead.

  817. Num32:14 And now you have come to take the place of your fathers, another generation of sinners, increasing the wrath of the Lord against Israel.

  818. Num32:25 And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben said to Moses, Your servants will do as my lord says.

  819. Num32:31 Then the children of Gad and the children of Reuben said, As the Lord has said to your servants, so will we do.

  820. Num33:14 And they went on from Alush, and put up their tents in Rephidim, where there was no drinking-water for the people.

  821. Num33:38 And Aaron the priest went up into the mountain at the order of the Lord, and came to his death there, in the fortieth year after the children of Israel had come out of the land of Egypt, in the fifth month, on the first day of the month.

  822. Num33:40 And news of the coming of the children of Israel came to the king of Arad, the Canaanite, who was living in the South in the land of Canaan.

  823. Num33:50 And in the lowlands of Moab by Jordan at Jericho, the Lord said to Moses,

  824. Num33:53 And take the land for yourselves, for your resting-place: for to you I have given the land as your heritage.

  825. Num33:56 And it will come about that as it was my purpose to do to them, so I will do to you.

  826. Num34:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

  827. Num34:8 And from Mount Hor the line will go in the direction of Hamath; the farthest point of it will be at Zedad:

  828. Num34:13 And Moses gave orders to the children of Israel saying, This is the land which is to be your heritage, by the decision of the Lord, which by the Lord's order is to be given to the nine tribes and the half-tribe:

  829. Num34:16 And the Lord said to Moses,

  830. Num34:18 And you are to take one chief from every tribe to make the distribution of the land.

  831. Num35:1 And the Lord said to Moses in the lowlands of Moab by Jordan at Jericho,

  832. Num35:2 Give orders to the children of Israel to give to the Levites, from the heritage which is theirs, towns for themselves, with land on the outskirts of the towns.

  833. Num35:3 These towns are to be their living-places, with land round them for their cattle and their food and all their beasts,

  834. Num35:6 And the towns which you give the Levites are to be the six safe places to which the taker of life may go in flight; and in addition you are to give them forty-two towns.

  835. Num35:9 And the Lord said to Moses,

  836. Num35:12 In these towns you may be safe from him who has the right of punishment; so that death may not overtake the taker of life till he has been judged by the meeting of the people.

  837. Num35:15 For the children of Israel and for the man from another country who is living among them, these six towns are to be safe places, where anyone causing the death of another through error may go in flight.

  838. Num35:16 But if a man gives another man a blow with an iron instrument, causing his death, he is a taker of life and is certainly to be put to death.

  839. Num35:17 Or if he gives him a blow with a stone in his hand, causing his death, he is a taker of life and is certainly to be put to death.

  840. Num35:18 Or if he gave him blows with a wood instrument in his hands, causing his death, he is a taker of life and is certainly to be put to death.

  841. Num35:19 He whose right it is to give punishment for blood, may himself put to death the taker of life when he comes face to face with him.

  842. Num35:21 Or in hate gave him blows with his hand, causing death; he who gave the death-blow is to be put to death; he is a taker of life: he whose right it is to give punishment for blood may put to death the taker of life when he comes face to face with him.

  843. Num35:23 Or has given him a blow with a stone, without seeing him, so causing his death, though he had nothing against him and no desire to do him evil:

  844. Num35:26 But if ever he goes outside the walls of the safe town where he had gone in flight,

  845. Num35:30 Anyone causing the death of another is himself to be put to death on the word of witnesses: but the word of one witness is not enough.

  846. Num35:31 Further, no price may be given for the life of one who has taken life and whose right reward is death: he is certainly to be put to death.

  847. Num35:32 And no price may be offered for one who has gone in flight to a safe town, for the purpose of letting him come back to his place before the death of the high priest.

  848. Num36:2 And said, The Lord gave orders to my lord to make distribution of the land as their heritage to the children of Israel: and my lord was ordered by the Lord to give the heritage of Zelophehad, our brother, to his daughters.

  849. Num36:5 So by the direction of the Lord, Moses gave orders to the children of Israel, saying, What the tribe of the sons of Joseph have said is right.

  850. Num36:6 This is the order of the Lord about the daughters of Zelophehad: The Lord says, Let them take as their husbands whoever is most pleasing to them, but only among the family of their father's tribe.

  851. Deu1:5 On the far side of Jordan in the land of Moab, Moses gave the people this law, saying,

  852. Deu1:6 The Lord our God said to us in Horeb, You have been long enough in this mountain:

  853. Deu1:8 See, all the land is before you: go in and take for yourselves the land which the Lord gave by an oath to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to their seed after them.

  854. Deu1:9 At that time I said to you, I am not able to undertake the care of you by myself;

  855. Deu1:14 And you made answer and said to me, It is good for us to do as you say.

  856. Deu1:16 And at that time I gave orders to your judges, saying, Let all questions between your brothers come before you for hearing, and give decisions uprightly between a man and his brother or one from another nation who is with him.

  857. Deu1:26 But going against the order of the Lord your God, you would not go up:

  858. Deu1:27 And you made an angry outcry in your tents, and said, In his hate for us the Lord has taken us out of the land of Egypt, to give us up into the hands of the Amorites for our destruction.

  859. Deu1:28 Where are we going up? Our brothers have made our hearts feeble with fear by saying, The people are greater and taller than we are, and the towns are great and walled up to heaven; and more than this, we have seen the sons of the Anakim there.

  860. Deu1:31 And in the waste land, where you have seen how the Lord was supporting you, as a man does his son, in all your journeying till you came to this place.

  861. Deu1:33 Who goes before you on your way, looking for a place where you may put up your tents, in fire by night, lighting up the way you are to go, and in a cloud by day.

  862. Deu1:34 And the Lord, hearing your words, was angry, and said with an oath,

  863. Deu1:35 Truly, not one of this evil generation will see that good land which I said I would give to your fathers,

  864. Deu1:37 And, in addition, the Lord was angry with me because of you, saying, You yourself will not go into it:

  865. Deu1:41 Then you said to me, We have done evil against the Lord, we will go up to the attack, as the Lord our God has given us orders. And arming yourselves every one, you made ready to go up without care into the hill-country.

  866. Deu1:44 And the Amorites who were in the hill-country came out against you and put you to flight, rushing after you like bees, and overcame you in Seir, driving you even as far as Hormah.

  867. Deu2:2 And the Lord said to me,

  868. Deu2:3 You have been journeying round this mountain long enough: now go to the north;

  869. Deu2:4 And give the people orders, saying, You are about to go through the land of your brothers, the children of Esau, who are living in Seir; and they will have fear of you; so take care what you do:

  870. Deu2:7 For the blessing of the Lord your God has been on you in all the work of your hands: he has knowledge of your wanderings through this great waste: these forty years the Lord your God has been with you, and you have been short of nothing.

  871. Deu2:14 Thirty-eight years had gone by from the time when we came away from Kadesh-barnea till we went over the stream Zered; by that time all the generation of the men of war among us were dead, as the Lord had said.

  872. Deu2:15 For the hand of the Lord was against them, working their destruction, till all were dead.

  873. Deu2:16 So when death had overtaken all the men of war among the people,

  874. Deu2:17 The word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  875. Deu2:25 From now on I will put the fear of you in all peoples under heaven, who, hearing of you, will be shaking with fear and grief of heart because of you.

  876. Deu2:26 Then from the waste land of Kedemoth I sent representatives to Sihon, king of Heshbon, with words of peace, saying,

  877. Deu2:30 But Sihon, king of Heshbon, would not let us go through; for the Lord your God made his spirit hard and his heart strong, so that he might give him up into your hands as at this day.

  878. Deu2:31 And the Lord said to me, See, from now on I have given Sihon and his land into your hands: go forward now to take his land and make it yours.

  879. Deu2:32 Then Sihon came out against us with all his people, to make an attack on us at Jahaz.

  880. Deu3:1 Then turning we took the road to Bashan: and Og, king of Bashan, came out against us with all his people, and made an attack on us at Edrei.

  881. Deu3:18 At that time I gave you orders, saying, The Lord has given you this land for your heritage: all the men of war are to go over armed before your brothers the children of Israel.

  882. Deu3:21 And I gave orders to Joshua at that time, saying, Your eyes have seen what the Lord your God has done to these two kings: so will the Lord do to all the kingdoms into which you come.

  883. Deu3:23 And at that time I made request to the Lord, saying,

  884. Deu4:1 And now give ear, O Israel, to the laws and the decisions which I am teaching you, and do them; so that life may be yours, and you may go in and take for yourselves the land which the Lord, the God of your fathers, is giving you.

  885. Deu4:2 Make no addition to the orders which I give you, and take nothing from them, but keep the orders of the Lord your God which I give you.

  886. Deu4:5 I have been teaching you laws and decisions, as I was ordered to do by the Lord my God, so that you might keep them in the land to which you are going to take it for your heritage.

  887. Deu4:7 For what great nation has a god so near to them as the Lord our God is, whenever we are turned to him in prayer?

  888. Deu4:10 That day when you were waiting before the Lord your God in Horeb, and the Lord said to me, Make all the people come together, so that hearing my words they may go in fear of me all the days of their life on earth and give this teaching to their children.

  889. Deu4:13 And he gave you his agreement with you, the ten rules which you were to keep, which he put in writing on the two stones of the law.

  890. Deu4:14 And the Lord gave me orders at that time to make clear to you these laws and decisions, so that you might do them in the land to which you are going, and which is to be your heritage.

  891. Deu4:21 And the Lord was angry with me because of you, and made an oath that I was not to go over Jordan into the good land which the Lord is giving you for your heritage:

  892. Deu4:26 May heaven and earth be my witnesses against you today, that destruction will quickly overtake you, cutting you off from that land which you are going over Jordan to take; your days will not be long in that land, but you will come to a complete end.

  893. Deu4:34 Has God ever before taken a nation for himself from out of another nation, by punishments and signs and wonders, by war and by a strong hand and a stretched-out arm and great acts of wonder and fear, as the Lord your God did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes?

  894. Deu4:35 All this he let you see, so that you might be certain that the Lord is God and there is no other.

  895. Deu4:38 Driving out before you nations greater and stronger than you, to take you into their land and give it to you for your heritage, as at this day.

  896. Deu4:42 To which anyone causing the death of his neighbour in error and not through hate, might go in flight; so that in one of these towns he might be kept from death:

  897. Deu4:45 These are the rules and the laws and the decisions which Moses gave to the children of Israel after they came out of Egypt;

  898. Deu4:46 On the far side of Jordan, in the valley facing Beth-peor, in the land of Sihon, king of the Amorites, who was ruling in Heshbon, whom Moses and the children of Israel overcame after they had come out of Egypt:

  899. Deu5:1 And Moses sent for all Israel, and said to them, Give ear, O Israel, to the laws and the decisions which I give you today, and give attention to them so that you may keep and do them.

  900. Deu5:5 (I was between the Lord and you at that time, to make clear to you the word of the Lord: because, through fear of the fire, you did not go up the mountain;) saying,

  901. Deu5:12 Keep the Sabbath day as a holy day, as you have been ordered by the Lord your God.

  902. Deu5:15 And keep in mind that you were a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the Lord your God took you out of that land by his strong hand and his stretched-out arm: for this reason the Lord has given you orders to keep the Sabbath day.

  903. Deu5:23 And after hearing the voice which came out of the dark while the mountain was burning with fire, all the heads of your tribes and your chiefs came to me,

  904. Deu5:25 Why then is death to be our fate? For if the voice of the Lord our God comes to us any more, death will overtake us, and we will be burned up in this great fire.

  905. Deu5:29 If only they had such a heart in them at all times, so that they might go in fear of me and keep my orders and that it might be well for them and for their children for ever!

  906. Deu5:31 But as for you, keep your place here by me, and I will give you all the orders and the laws and the decisions which you are to make clear to them, so that they may do them in the land which I am giving them for their heritage.

  907. Deu5:32 Take care, then, to do whatever the Lord your God has given you orders to do; let there be no turning away to the right hand or to the left.

  908. Deu6:1 Now these are the orders and the laws and the decisions which the Lord your God gave me for your teaching, so that you might do them in the land of your heritage to which you are going:

  909. Deu6:2 So that living in the fear of the Lord your God, you may keep all his laws and his orders, which I give you: you and your son and your son's son, all the days of your life; and so that your life may be long.

  910. Deu6:3 So give ear, O Israel, and take care to do this; so that it may be well for you, and you may be greatly increased, as the Lord the God of your fathers has given you his word, in a land flowing with milk and honey.

  911. Deu6:7 Teaching them to your children with all care, talking of them when you are at rest in your house or walking by the way, when you go to sleep and when you get up.

  912. Deu6:10 And when the Lord your God has taken you into the land which he gave his oath to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, that he would give you; with great and fair towns which were not of your building;

  913. Deu6:17 Keep with care the orders of the Lord your God, and his rules and his laws which he has given you;

  914. Deu6:19 To send out from before you all those who are against you.

  915. Deu6:20 And when your son says to you in time to come, What is the reason for these rules and laws and decisions which the Lord our God has given you?

  916. Deu6:23 And he took us out from that place, guiding us here to give us this land, as he said in his oath to our fathers.

  917. Deu6:24 And the Lord gave us orders to keep all these laws, in the fear of the Lord our God, so that it might be well for us for ever, and that he might keep us from death, as he has done to this day.

  918. Deu6:25 And it will be our righteousness if we take care to keep all this order before the Lord our God as he has given it to us.

  919. Deu7:1 When the Lord your God takes you into the land where you are going, which is to be your heritage, and has sent out the nations before you, the Hittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and stronger than you;

  920. Deu7:8 But because of his love for you, and in order to keep his oath to your fathers, the Lord took you out with the strength of his hand, making you free from the prison-house and from the hand of Pharaoh, king of Egypt.

  921. Deu7:11 So keep the orders and the laws and the decisions which I give you today and do them.

  922. Deu7:13 And he will give you his love, blessing you and increasing you: he will send his blessing on the offspring of your body and the fruit of your land, your grain and your wine and your oil, the increase of your cattle and the young of your flock, in the land which by his oath to your fathers he undertook to give you.

  923. Deu7:18 Have no fear of them, but keep well in mind what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt;

  924. Deu7:20 And the Lord will send a hornet among them, till all the rest who have kept themselves safe from you in secret places have been cut off.

  925. Deu8:1 Take care to keep all the orders which I give you today, so that you may have life and be increased and go in and take as a heritage the land which the Lord, by his oath to your fathers, undertook to give you.

  926. Deu8:2 And keep in mind the way by which the Lord your God has taken you through the waste land these forty years, so that he might make low your pride and put you to the test, to see what was in your heart and if you would keep his orders or not.

  927. Deu8:6 Then keep the orders of the Lord your God, fearing him and walking in his ways.

  928. Deu8:11 Then take care that you are not turned away from the Lord your God and from keeping his orders and decisions and laws which I give you this day:

  929. Deu8:18 But keep in mind the Lord your God: for it is he who gives you the power to get wealth, so that he may give effect to the agreement which he made by his oath with your fathers, as at this day.

  930. Deu8:19 And it is certain that if at any time you are turned away from the Lord your God, and go after other gods, to be their servants and to give them worship, destruction will overtake you.

  931. Deu9:1 Give ear, O Israel: today you are to go over Jordan, to take the heritage of nations greater and stronger than yourselves, and towns of great size with walls as high as heaven;

  932. Deu9:4 And after the Lord has sent them in flight from before you, say not in your heart, Because of my righteousness the Lord has given me this land; when it is because of their evil-doing that the Lord is driving these nations out before you.

  933. Deu9:5 Not for your righteousness or because your hearts are upright are you going in to take their land; but because of the evil-doing of these nations the Lord your God is driving them out from before you, and to give effect to his oath to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

  934. Deu9:6 Be certain then that the Lord your God is not giving you this good land as a reward for your righteousness; for you are a stiff-necked people.

  935. Deu9:7 Keep well in mind how you made the Lord your God angry in the waste land; from the day when you went out of Egypt till you came to this place, you have gone against the orders of the Lord.

  936. Deu9:9 When I had gone up into the mountain to be given the stones on which was recorded the agreement which the Lord made with you, I was on the mountain for forty days and forty nights without taking food or drinking water.

  937. Deu9:13 And then the Lord said to me, I have seen that this people is stiff-necked:

  938. Deu9:18 And I went down on my face before the Lord, as at the first, for forty days and forty nights, without taking food or drinking water, because of all your sin, in doing evil in the eyes of the Lord and moving him to wrath.

  939. Deu9:21 And I took your sin, the image which you had made, and put it in the fire and had it hammered and crushed very small till it was only dust: and the dust I put in the stream flowing down from the mountain.

  940. Deu9:23 And when the Lord sent you from Kadesh-barnea, saying, Go up and take the land which I have given you; you went against the orders of the Lord your God, and had no faith in him, and would not give ear to his voice.

  941. Deu9:24 From the day when I first had knowledge of you, you have gone against the word of the Lord.

  942. Deu9:28 Or it may be said in the land from which you have taken them, Because the Lord was not able to take them into the land which he said he would give them, and because of his hate for them, he has taken them out to put them to death in the waste land.

  943. Deu10:8 At that time the Lord had the tribe of Levi marked out to take up the ark of the Lord's agreement, to be before the Lord and to do his work and to give blessings in his name, to this day.

  944. Deu10:11 Then the Lord said to me, Get up and go on your journey before the people, so that they may go in and take the land which I said in my oath to their fathers that I would give them.

  945. Deu10:12 And now, Israel, what would the Lord your God have you do, but to go in the fear of the Lord your God, walking in all his ways and loving him and doing his pleasure with all your heart and all your soul,

  946. Deu10:13 Doing the orders of the Lord and keeping his laws which I give you this day for your good?

  947. Deu10:15 But the Lord had delight in your fathers and love for them, marking out for himself their seed after them, even you, from all peoples, as at this day.

  948. Deu10:18 Judging uprightly in the cause of the widow and of the child who has no father, and giving food and clothing in his mercy to the man from a strange country.

  949. Deu11:4 And what he did to the army of Egypt, to their horses and their war-carriages; how he made the waters of the Red Sea come up over them when they went after you, and how the Lord put an end to them even to this day;

  950. Deu11:5 And what he did for you in the waste land, till you came to this place;

  951. Deu11:8 So keep all the orders which I give you today, so that you may be strong, and go in and take the land which is to be your heritage;

  952. Deu11:9 And that your days may be long in the land which the Lord gave by an oath to your fathers and to their seed after them, a land flowing with milk and honey.

  953. Deu11:10 For the land where you are going is not like the land of Egypt from which you have come, where you put in your seeds, watering them with your foot, like a planted garden:

  954. Deu11:11 But the land where you are going is a land of hills and valleys, drinking in the rain of heaven:

  955. Deu11:13 And it will be that if you truly give ear to the orders which I put before you this day, loving the Lord your God and worshipping him with all your heart and all your soul,

  956. Deu11:19 Teaching them to your children, and talking of them when you are at rest in your house or walking by the way, when you go to sleep and when you get up:

  957. Deu11:21 So that your days, and the days of your children, may be long in the land which the Lord by his oath to your fathers said he would give them, like the days of the eternal heavens.

  958. Deu11:22 For if you take care to keep all the orders which I give you, and to do them; loving the Lord your God and walking in all his ways and being true to him:

  959. Deu11:28 And the curse if you do not give ear to the orders of the Lord your God, but let yourselves be turned from the way which I have put before you this day, and go after other gods which are not yours.

  960. Deu11:29 And when the Lord your God has taken you into the land of your heritage, you are to put the blessing on Mount Gerizim and the curse on Mount Ebal.

  961. Deu11:31 For you are about to go over Jordan to take the heritage which the Lord your God is giving you, and it will be your resting-place.

  962. Deu11:32 And you are to take care to keep all the laws and the decisions which I put before you today.

  963. Deu12:1 These are the laws and the decisions which you are to keep with care in the land which the Lord, the God of your fathers, has given you to be your heritage all the days of your life on earth.

  964. Deu12:5 But let your hearts be turned to the place which will be marked out by the Lord your God, among your tribes, to put his name there;

  965. Deu12:17 In your towns you are not to take as food the tenth part of your grain, or of your wine or your oil, or the first births of your herds or of your flocks, or anything offered under an oath, or freely offered to the Lord, or given as a lifted offering;

  966. Deu12:20 When the Lord your God makes wide the limit of your land, as he has said, and you say, I will take flesh for my food, because you have a desire for it; then you may take whatever flesh you have a desire for.

  967. Deu12:21 If the place marked out by the Lord your God as the resting-place for his name is far away from you, then take from your herds and from your flocks which the Lord has given you, as I have said, and have a meal of it in the towns where you may be living.

  968. Deu12:23 But see that you do not take the blood for food; for the blood is the life; and you may not make use of the life as food with the flesh.

  969. Deu12:29 When the people of the land where you are going have been cut off before you by the Lord your God, and you have taken their land and are living in it;

  970. Deu12:30 After their destruction take care that you do not go in their ways, and that you do not give thought to their gods, saying, How did these nations give worship to their gods? I will do as they did.

  971. Deu12:32 You are to keep with care all the words I give you, making no addition to them and taking nothing from them.

  972. Deu13:2 And the sign or the wonder takes place, and he says to you, Let us go after other gods, which are strange to you, and give them worship;

  973. Deu13:3 Then give no attention to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God is testing you, to see if all the love of your heart and soul is given to him.

  974. Deu13:5 And that prophet or that dreamer of dreams is to be put to death; for his words were said with the purpose of turning you away from the Lord your God, who took you out of the land of Egypt and made you free from the prison-house; and of forcing you out of the way in which the Lord your God has given you orders to go. So you are to put away the evil from among you.

  975. Deu13:6 If your brother, the son of your mother, or your son or your daughter or the wife of your heart, or the friend who is as dear to you as your life, working on you secretly says to you, Let us go and give worship to other gods, strange to you and to your fathers;

  976. Deu13:9 But put him to death without question; let your hand be the first stretched out against him to put him to death, and then the hands of all the people.

  977. Deu13:11 And all Israel, hearing of it, will be full of fear, and no one will again do such evil as this among you.

  978. Deu13:12 And if word comes to you, in one of the towns which the Lord your God is giving you for your resting-place,

  979. Deu13:17 Keep not a thing of what is cursed for yourselves: so the Lord may be turned away from the heat of his wrath, and have mercy on you, and give you increase as he said in his oath to your fathers:

  980. Deu14:21 You may not have as food anything which has come to a natural death; the man from another country who is living with you may take it for food, or you may get a price for it from one of another nation; for you are a holy people to the Lord your God. The young goat is not to be cooked in its mother's milk.

  981. Deu14:23 And make a feast before the Lord your God, in the place which is to be marked out, where his name will be for ever, of the tenth part of your grain and your wine and your oil, and the first births of your herds and your flocks; so that you may have the fear of the Lord your God in your hearts at all times.

  982. Deu14:24 And if the way is so long that you are not able to take these things to the place marked out by the Lord your God for his name, when he has given you his blessing, because it is far away from you;

  983. Deu15:2 This is how it is to be done: every creditor is to give up his right to whatever he has let his neighbour have; he is not to make his neighbour, his countryman, give it back; because a general forgiveness has been ordered by the Lord.

  984. Deu15:4 But there will be no poor among you; for the Lord will certainly give you his blessing in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage;

  985. Deu15:8 But let your hand be open to give him the use of whatever he is in need of.

  986. Deu15:9 And see that there is no evil thought in your heart, moving you to say to yourself, The seventh year, the year of forgiveness is near; and so looking coldly on your poor countryman you give him nothing; and he will make an outcry to the Lord against you, and it will be judged as sin in you.

  987. Deu15:10 But it is right for you to give to him, without grief of heart: for because of this, the blessing of the Lord your God will be on all your work and on everything to which you put your hand.

  988. Deu15:11 For there will never be a time when there are no poor in the land; and so I give orders to you, Let your hand be open to your countrymen, to those who are poor and in need in your land.

  989. Deu16:1 Take note of the month of Abib and keep the Passover to the Lord your God: for in the month of Abib the Lord your God took you out of Egypt by night.

  990. Deu16:3 Take no leavened bread with it; for seven days let your food be unleavened bread, that is, the bread of sorrow; for you came out of the land of Egypt quickly: so the memory of that day, when you came out of the land of Egypt, will be with you all your life.

  991. Deu16:5 The Passover offering is not to be put to death in any of the towns which the Lord your God gives you:

  992. Deu16:6 But in the place marked out by the Lord your God as the resting-place of his name, there you are to put the Passover to death in the evening, at sundown, at that time of the year when you came out of Egypt.

  993. Deu16:9 Let seven weeks be numbered from the first day when the grain is cut.

  994. Deu16:13 You are to keep the feast of tents for seven days after you have got in all your grain and made your wine:

  995. Deu17:2 If there is any man or woman among you, in any of the towns which the Lord your God gives you, who does evil in the eyes of the Lord your God, sinning against his agreement,

  996. Deu17:10 And you are to be guided by the decision they give in the place named by the Lord, and do whatever they say:

  997. Deu17:12 And any man who, in his pride, will not give ear to the priest whose place is there before the Lord your God, or to the judge, is to be put to death: you are to put away the evil from Israel.

  998. Deu17:15 Then see that you take as your king the man named by the Lord your God: let your king be one of your countrymen, not a man of another nation who is not one of yourselves.

  999. Deu17:16 And he is not to get together a great army of horses for himself, or make the people go back to Egypt to get horses for him: because the Lord has said, You will never again go back that way.

  1000. Deu17:18 And when he has taken his place on the seat of his kingdom, he is to make in a book a copy of this law, from that which the priests, the Levites, have in their care:

  1001. Deu17:19 And it is to be with him for his reading all the days of his life, so that he may be trained in the fear of the Lord his God to keep and do all the words of this teaching and these laws:

  1002. Deu17:20 So that his heart may not be lifted up over his countrymen, and he may not be turned away from the orders, to one side or the other: but that his life and the lives of his children may be long in his kingdom in Israel.

  1003. Deu18:5 For he, and his sons after him for ever, have been marked out by the Lord your God from all your tribes, to do the work of priests in the name of the Lord.

  1004. Deu18:9 When you have come into the land which the Lord your God is giving you, do not take as your example the disgusting ways of those nations.

  1005. Deu18:16 In answer to the request you made to the Lord your God in Horeb on the day of the great meeting, when you said, Let not the voice of the Lord my God come to my ears again, and let me not see this great fire any more, or death will overtake me.

  1006. Deu19:2 You are to have three towns marked out in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage.

  1007. Deu19:3 You are to make ready a way, and see that the land which the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage, is marked out into three parts, to which any taker of life may go in flight.

  1008. Deu19:5 For example, if a man goes into the woods with his neighbour for the purpose of cutting down trees, and when he takes his axe to give a blow to the tree, the head of the axe comes off, and falling on to his neighbour gives him a wound causing his death; then the man may go in flight to one of these towns and be safe:

  1009. Deu19:7 And so I am ordering you to see that three towns are marked out for this purpose.

  1010. Deu19:8 And if the Lord your God makes wide the limits of your land, as he said in his oath to your fathers, and gives you all the land which he undertook to give to your fathers;

  1011. Deu19:9 If you keep and do all these orders which I give you today, loving the Lord your God and walking ever in his ways; then let three more towns, in addition to these three, be marked out for you:

  1012. Deu19:14 Your neighbour's landmark, which was put in its place by the men of old times, is not to be moved or taken away in the land of your heritage which the Lord your God is giving you.

  1013. Deu19:16 If a false witness makes a statement against a man, saying that he has done wrong,

  1014. Deu19:19 Then do to him what it was his purpose to do to his brother: and so put away the evil from among you.

  1015. Deu19:20 And the rest of the people, hearing of it, will be full of fear, and never again do such evil among you.

  1016. Deu20:2 And when you are on the point of attacking, let the priest come forward and say to the people,

  1017. Deu20:5 And let the overseers say to the people, If there is any man who has made for himself a new house and has not gone into it, let him go back to his house, so that in the event of his death in the fight, another may not take his house for himself.

  1018. Deu20:18 So that you may not take them as your example and do all the disgusting things which they do in the worship of their gods, so sinning against the Lord your God.

  1019. Deu20:19 If in war a town is shut in by your armies for a long time, do not let its trees be cut down and made waste; for their fruit will be your food; are the trees of the countryside men for you to take up arms against them?

  1020. Deu20:20 Only those trees which you are certain are not used for food may be cut down and put to destruction: and you are to make walls of attack against the town till it is taken.

  1021. Deu21:1 If, in the land which the Lord your God is giving you, you come across the dead body of a man in the open country, and you have no idea who has put him to death:

  1022. Deu21:14 But if you have no delight in her, you are to let her go wherever she will; you may not take a price for her as if she was your property, for you have made use of her for your pleasure.

  1023. Deu21:17 But he is to give his first son his birthright, and twice as great a part of his property: for he is the first-fruits of his strength and the right of the first son is his.

  1024. Deu21:23 Do not let his body be on the tree all night, but put it to rest in the earth the same day; for the man who undergoes hanging is cursed by God; so do not make unclean the land which the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage.

  1025. Deu22:2 If their owner is not near, or if you are not certain who he is, then take the beast to your house and keep it till its owner comes in search of it, and then you are to give it back to him.

  1026. Deu22:17 And now he has put shame on her, saying that she is not a virgin; but here is the sign that she is a virgin. Then they are to put her clothing before the responsible men of the town.

  1027. Deu22:21 Then they are to make the girl come to the door of her father's house and she will be stoned to death by the men of the town, because she has done evil and put shame on Israel, by acting as a loose woman in her father's house: so you are to put away evil from among you.

  1028. Deu23:4 Because they gave you no bread or water on your way, when you came out of Egypt: and they got Balaam, the son of Peor, from Pethor in Aram-naharaim to put curses on you.

  1029. Deu23:5 But the Lord your God would not give ear to Balaam, but let the curse be changed into a blessing to you, because of his love for you.

  1030. Deu23:11 But when evening comes near, let him take a bath: and after sundown he may come back to the tents.

  1031. Deu23:13 And have among your arms a spade; and when you have been to that place, let that which comes from you be covered up with earth:

  1032. Deu23:14 For the Lord your God is walking among your tents, to keep you safe and to give up into your hands those who are fighting against you; then let your tents be holy, so that he may see no unclean thing among you, and be turned away from you.

  1033. Deu23:20 From men of other nations you may take interest, but not from an Israelite: so that the blessing of the Lord your God may be on everything to which you put your hand, in the land which you are about to take as your heritage.

  1034. Deu23:21 When you take an oath to the Lord, do not be slow to give effect to it: for without doubt the Lord your God will make you responsible, and will put it to your account as sin.

  1035. Deu23:22 But if you take no oath, there will be no sin.

  1036. Deu24:4 Her first husband, who had sent her away, may not take her back after she has been wife to another; for that is disgusting to the Lord: and you are not to be a cause of sin in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage.

  1037. Deu24:8 In connection with the leper's disease, take care to keep and do every detail of the teaching of the priests, the Levites: as I gave them orders, so you are to do.

  1038. Deu24:9 Keep in mind what the Lord your God did to Miriam on the way, when you came out of Egypt.

  1039. Deu24:10 If you let your brother have the use of anything which is yours, do not go into his house and take anything of his as a sign of his debt;

  1040. Deu24:13 But be certain to give it back to him when the sun goes down, so that he may have his clothing for sleeping in, and will give you his blessing: and this will be put to your account as righteousness before the Lord your God.

  1041. Deu24:18 But keep in mind that you were a servant in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God made you free: for this is why I give you orders to do this.

  1042. Deu24:19 When you get in the grain from your field, if some of the grain has been dropped by chance in the field, do not go back and get it, but let it be for the man from a strange land, the child without a father, and the widow: so that the blessing of the Lord your God may be on all the work of your hands.

  1043. Deu24:22 Keep in mind that you were a servant in the land of Egypt: for this is why I give you orders to do this.

  1044. Deu25:4 Do not keep the ox from taking the grain when he is crushing it.

  1045. Deu25:7 But if the man says he will not take his brother's wife, then let the wife go to the responsible men of the town, and say, My husband's brother will not keep his brother's name living in Israel; he will not do what it is right for a husband's brother to do.

  1046. Deu25:8 Then the responsible men of the town will send for the man, and have talk with him: and if he still says, I will not take her;

  1047. Deu25:17 Keep in mind what Amalek did to you on your way from Egypt;

  1048. Deu25:19 So when the Lord your God has given you rest from all who are against you on every side, in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage, see to it that the memory of Amalek is cut off from the earth; keep this in mind.

  1049. Deu26:3 And you are to come to him who is priest at that time, and say to him, I give witness today before the Lord your God, that I have come into the land which the Lord made an oath to our fathers to give us.

  1050. Deu26:16 Today the Lord your God gives you orders to keep all these laws and decisions: so then keep and do them with all your heart and all your soul.

  1051. Deu26:17 Today you have given witness that the Lord is your God, and that you will go in his ways and keep his laws and his orders and his decisions and give ear to his voice:

  1052. Deu26:18 And the Lord has made it clear this day that you are a special people to him, as he gave you his word; and that you are to keep all his orders;

  1053. Deu26:19 And that he will make you high over all the nations he has made, in praise, in name, and in honour, and that you are to be a holy people to the Lord your God as he has said.

  1054. Deu27:1 Then Moses and the responsible men of Israel gave the people these orders: Keep all the orders which I have given you this day;

  1055. Deu27:3 And writing on them all the words of this law, after you have gone over; so that you may take the heritage which the Lord your God is giving you, a land flowing with milk and honey, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has said.

  1056. Deu27:4 And when you have gone over Jordan, you are to put up these stones, as I have said to you today, in Mount Ebal, and have them coated with building-paste.

  1057. Deu27:9 Then Moses and the priests, the Levites, said to all Israel, Be quiet and give ear, O Israel; today you have become the people of the Lord your God.

  1058. Deu27:11 That same day Moses said to the people,

  1059. Deu27:12 These are to take their places on Mount Gerizim for blessing the people when you have gone over Jordan: Simeon and Levi and Judah and Issachar and Joseph and Benjamin;

  1060. Deu27:26 Cursed is he who does not take this law to heart to do it. And let all the people say, So be it.

  1061. Deu28:1 Now if you give ear to the voice of the Lord your God, and keep with care all these orders which I have given you today, then the Lord your God will put you high over all the nations of the earth:

  1062. Deu28:6 A blessing will be on your coming in and on your going out.

  1063. Deu28:11 And the Lord will make you fertile in every good thing, in the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your cattle, and the fruit of your fields, in the land which the Lord, by his oath to your fathers, said he would give you.

  1064. Deu28:12 Opening his store-house in heaven, the Lord will send rain on your land at the right time, blessing all the work of your hands: other nations will make use of your wealth, and you will have no need of theirs.

  1065. Deu28:13 The Lord will make you the head and not the tail; and you will ever have the highest place, if you give ear to the orders of the Lord your God which I give you today, to keep and to do them;

  1066. Deu28:15 But if you do not give ear to the voice of the Lord your God, and take care to do all his orders and his laws which I give you today, then all these curses will come on you and overtake you:

  1067. Deu28:19 You will be cursed when you come in and cursed when you go out.

  1068. Deu28:20 The Lord will send on you cursing and trouble and punishment in everything to which you put your hand, till sudden destruction overtakes you; because of your evil ways in which you have been false to me.

  1069. Deu28:21 The Lord will send disease after disease on you, till you have been cut off by death from the land to which you are going.

  1070. Deu28:22 The Lord will send wasting disease, and burning pain, and flaming heat against you, keeping back the rain till your land is waste and dead; so will it be till your destruction is complete.

  1071. Deu28:45 And all these curses will come after you and overtake you, till your destruction is complete; because you did not give ear to the voice of the Lord your God, or keep his laws and his orders which he gave you:

  1072. Deu28:52 Your towns will be shut in by his armies, till your high walls, in which you put your faith, have come down: his armies will be round your towns, through all your land which the Lord your God has given you.

  1073. Deu28:55 And will not give to any of them the flesh of his children which will be his food because he has no other; in the cruel grip of your haters on all your towns.

  1074. Deu28:58 If you will not take care to do all the words of this law, recorded in this book, honouring that name of glory and of fear, THE LORD YOUR GOD;

  1075. Deu28:63 And as the Lord took delight in doing you good and increasing you, so the Lord will take pleasure in cutting you off and causing your destruction, and you will be uprooted from the land which you are about to take as your heritage.

  1076. Deu28:68 And the Lord will take you back to Egypt again in ships, by the way of which I said to you, You will never see it again: there you will be offering yourselves as men-servants and women-servants to your haters for a price, and no man will take you.

  1077. Deu29:1 These are the words of the agreement which Moses was ordered by the Lord to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, in addition to the agreement which he made with them in Horeb.

  1078. Deu29:4 But even to this day the Lord has not given you a mind open to knowledge, or seeing eyes or hearing ears.

  1079. Deu29:7 When you came to this place, Sihon, king of Heshbon, and Og, king of Bashan, came out to make war against us and we overcame them:

  1080. Deu29:12 With the purpose of taking part in the agreement of the Lord your God, and his oath which he makes with you today:

  1081. Deu29:18 So that there may not be among you any man or woman or family or tribe whose heart is turned away from the Lord our God today, to go after other gods and give them worship; or any root among you whose fruit is poison and bitter sorrow;

  1082. Deu29:19 If such a man, hearing the words of this oath, takes comfort in the thought that he will have peace even if he goes on in the pride of his heart, taking whatever chance may give him:

  1083. Deu29:20 The Lord will have no mercy on him, but the wrath of the Lord will be burning against that man, and all the curses recorded in this book will be waiting for him, and the Lord will take away his name completely from the earth.

  1084. Deu29:29 The secret things are the Lord our God's: but the things which have been made clear are ours and our children's for ever, so that we may do all the words of this law.

  1085. Deu30:6 And the Lord your God will give to you and to your seed a circumcision of the heart, so that, loving him with all your heart and all your soul, you may have life.

  1086. Deu30:9 And the Lord your God will make you fertile in all good things, blessing the work of your hands, and the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your cattle, and the fruit of your land: for the Lord will have joy in you, as he had in your fathers:

  1087. Deu30:12 They are not in heaven, for you to say, Who will go up to heaven for us and give us knowledge of them so that we may do them?

  1088. Deu30:13 And they are not across the sea, for you to say, Who will go over the sea for us and give us news of them so that we may do them?

  1089. Deu30:14 But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, so that you may do it.

  1090. Deu30:16 In giving you orders today to have love for the Lord your God, to go in his ways and keep his laws and his orders and his decisions, so that you may have life and be increased, and that the blessing of the Lord your God may be with you in the land where you are going, the land of your heritage.

  1091. Deu30:18 I give witness against you this day that destruction will certainly be your fate, and your days will be cut short in the land where you are going, the land of your heritage on the other side of Jordan.

  1092. Deu30:20 In loving the Lord your God, hearing his voice and being true to him: for he is your life and by him will your days be long: so that you may go on living in the land which the Lord gave by an oath to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

  1093. Deu31:2 Then he said to them, I am now a hundred and twenty years old; I am no longer able to go out and come in: and the Lord has said to me, You are not to go over Jordan.

  1094. Deu31:7 Then Moses sent for Joshua, and before the eyes of all Israel said to him, Be strong and take heart: for you are to go with this people into the land which the Lord, by his oath to their fathers, has given them; by your help they will take it for their heritage.

  1095. Deu31:10 And Moses said to them, At the end of every seven years, at the time fixed for the ending of debts, at the feast of tents,

  1096. Deu31:11 When all Israel has come before the Lord your God in the place named by him, let a reading be given of this law in the hearing of all Israel.

  1097. Deu31:12 Make all the people come together, men and women and children, and anyone from another country who is with you, so that hearing they may become wise in the fear of the Lord your God, and take care to do all the words of this law;

  1098. Deu31:13 And so that your children, to whom it is new, may give ear and be trained in the fear of the Lord your God, while you are living in the land which you are going over Jordan to take for your heritage.

  1099. Deu31:14 At that time the Lord said to Moses, The day of your death is near: send for Joshua, and come to the Tent of meeting so that I may give him his orders. So Moses and Joshua went to the Tent of meeting.

  1100. Deu31:17 In that day my wrath will be moved against them, and I will be turned away from them, veiling my face from them, and destruction will overtake them, and unnumbered evils and troubles will come on them; so that in that day they will say, Have not these evils come on us because our God is not with us?

  1101. Deu31:24 Now after writing all the words of this law in a book till the record of them was complete,

  1102. Deu31:25 Moses said to the Levites who were responsible for taking up the ark of the Lord's agreement,

  1103. Deu31:26 Take this book of the law and put it by the ark of the Lord's agreement, so that it may be a witness against you.

  1104. Deu31:30 Then in the hearing of all the meeting of Israel, Moses said the words of this song, to the end.

  1105. Deu32:46 Moses said to them, Let the words which I have said to you today go deep into your hearts, and give orders to your children to do every word of this law.

  1106. Deu32:47 And this is no small thing for you, but it is your life, and through this you may make your days long in the land which you are going over Jordan to take for your heritage.

  1107. Deu32:48 That same day the Lord said to Moses,

  1108. Deu33:18 And of Zebulun he said, Be glad, Zebulun, in your going out; and, Issachar, in your tents.

  1109. Deu34:4 And the Lord said to him, This is the land about which I made an oath to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, I will give it to your seed: now I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not go in there.

  1110. Deu34:11 In all the signs and wonders which the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh and to all his servants and all his land;

  1111. Jos1:1 Now after the death of Moses, the servant of the Lord, the word of the Lord came to Joshua, the son of Nun, Moses' helper, saying,

  1112. Jos1:6 Take heart and be strong; for you will give to this people for their heritage the land which I gave by an oath to their fathers.

  1113. Jos1:7 Only take heart and be very strong; take care to do all the law which Moses my servant gave you, not turning from it to the right hand or to the left, so that you may do well in all your undertakings.

  1114. Jos1:8 Let this book of the law be ever on your lips and in your thoughts day and night, so that you may keep with care everything in it; then a blessing will be on all your way, and you will do well.

  1115. Jos1:10 Then Joshua gave their orders to those who were in authority over the people, saying,

  1116. Jos1:11 Go through the tents and give orders to the people, saying, Get ready a store of food; for in three days you are to go over this river Jordan and take for your heritage the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

  1117. Jos1:12 And to the Reubenites and the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh, Joshua said,

  1118. Jos1:13 Keep in mind what Moses, the servant of the Lord, said to you, The Lord your God is sending you rest and will give you this land.

  1119. Jos1:16 Then they said to Joshua in answer, Whatever you say to us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go.

  1120. Jos2:1 Then Joshua, the son of Nun, sent two men from Shittim secretly, with the purpose of searching out the land, and Jericho. So they went and came to the house of a loose woman of the town, named Rahab, where they took their rest for the night.

  1121. Jos2:2 And it was said to the king of Jericho, See, some men have come here tonight from the children of Israel with the purpose of searching out the land.

  1122. Jos2:3 Then the king of Jericho sent to Rahab, saying, Send out the men who have come to you and are in your house; for they have come with the purpose of searching out all the land.

  1123. Jos2:5 And when it was the time for shutting the doors at dark, they went out; I have no idea where the men went: but if you go after them quickly, you will overtake them.

  1124. Jos2:10 For we have had news of how the Lord made the Red Sea dry before you when you came out of Egypt; and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites, on the other side of Jordan, to Sihon and Og, whom you gave up to the curse.

  1125. Jos2:14 And the men said to her, Our life for yours if you keep our business secret; and when the Lord has given us the land, we will keep faith and be kind to you.

  1126. Jos2:16 And she said to them, Get away into the hill-country, or the men who have gone after you will overtake you; keep yourselves safe there for three days, till the searchers have come back, and then go on your way.

  1127. Jos3:3 Giving the people their orders, and saying, When you see the ark of the agreement of the Lord your God lifted up by the priests, the Levites, then get up from your places and go after it;

  1128. Jos3:6 Then Joshua said to the priests, Take up the ark of the agreement and go over in front of the people. So they took up the ark of the agreement and went in front of the people.

  1129. Jos3:8 And you are to give orders to the priests who take up the ark of the agreement, and say, When you come to the edge of the waters of Jordan, go no further.

  1130. Jos3:13 And when the feet of the priests who take up the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, come to rest in the waters of Jordan, the waters of Jordan will be cut off, all the waters flowing down from higher up, and will come together in a mass.

  1131. Jos3:14 So when the people went out from their tents to go over Jordan, the priests who took up the ark of the agreement were in front of the people;

  1132. Jos3:15 And when those who took up the ark came to Jordan, and the feet of the priests who took up the ark were touching the edge of the water (for the waters of Jordan are overflowing all through the time of the grain-cutting),

  1133. Jos3:17 And the priests who took up the ark of the agreement of the Lord kept their places, with their feet on dry land in the middle of Jordan, while all Israel went over on dry land, till all the nation had gone over Jordan.

  1134. Jos4:1 Now when all the nation had come to the other side of Jordan, the Lord said to Joshua,

  1135. Jos4:3 And say to them, Take up from the middle of Jordan, from the place where the feet of the priests were resting, twelve stones, and take them over with you and put them down in the place where you take your rest tonight.

  1136. Jos4:6 So that this may be a sign among you; when your children say to you in time to come, What is the reason for these stones?

  1137. Jos4:7 Then you will say to them, Because the waters of Jordan were cut off before the ark of the Lord's agreement; when it went over Jordan the waters of Jordan were cut off: and these stones will be a sign for the children of Israel, keeping it in their memory for ever.

  1138. Jos4:10 For the priests who took up the ark kept there in the middle of Jordan till all the orders given to Joshua by Moses from the Lord had been done: then the people went over quickly.

  1139. Jos4:11 And when all the people had come to the other side, the ark of the Lord went over, and the priests, before the eyes of the people.

  1140. Jos4:15 Then the Lord said to Joshua,

  1141. Jos4:17 So Joshua gave orders to the priests, saying, Come up now out of Jordan.

  1142. Jos4:18 And when the priests who took up the ark of the Lord's agreement came up out of Jordan and their feet came out on to dry land, the waters of Jordan went back to their place, overflowing its edges as before.

  1143. Jos4:21 And he said to the children of Israel, When your children say to their fathers in time to come, What is the reason for these stones?

  1144. Jos4:22 Then give your children the story, and say, Israel came over this river Jordan on dry land.

  1145. Jos4:23 For the Lord your God made the waters of Jordan dry before you till you had gone across, as he did to the Red Sea, drying it up before us till we had gone across:

  1146. Jos4:24 So that all the peoples of the earth may see that the hand of the Lord is strong; and that they may go in fear of the Lord your God for ever.

  1147. Jos5:1 Now when the news came to all the kings of the Amorites on the west side of Jordan, and all the kings of the Canaanites living by the sea, how the Lord had made the waters of Jordan dry before the children of Israel, till they had gone across, their hearts became like water, and there was no more spirit in them, because of the children of Israel.

  1148. Jos5:4 And this is the reason why Joshua did so: all the males of the people who came out of Egypt, all the fighting-men, had been overtaken by death in the waste land on the way, after they came out of Egypt.

  1149. Jos5:5 All the people who came out had undergone circumcision; but all the people whose birth had taken place in the waste land on their journey from Egypt had not.

  1150. Jos5:6 For the children of Israel were wandering in the waste land for forty years, till all the nation, that is, all the fighting-men, who had come out of Egypt, were dead, because they did not give ear to the voice of the Lord: to whom the Lord said, with an oath, that he would not let them see the land which the Lord had given his word to their fathers to give us, a land flowing with milk and honey.

  1151. Jos5:8 So when all the nation had undergone circumcision, they kept in their tents till they were well again.

  1152. Jos5:12 And there was no more manna from the day after they had for their food the produce of the land; the children of Israel had manna no longer, but that year the produce of the land of Canaan was their food.

  1153. Jos6:5 And at the sound of a long note on the horns, let all the people give a loud cry; and the wall of the town will come down flat, and all the people are to go straight forward.

  1154. Jos6:8 So after Joshua had said this to the people, the seven priests with their seven horns went forward before the Lord, blowing on their horns: and the ark of the Lord's agreement went after them.

  1155. Jos6:9 And the armed men went before the priests who were blowing the horns, and the mass of the people went after the ark, blowing their horns.

  1156. Jos6:10 And to the people Joshua gave an order, saying, You will give no cry, and make no sound, and let no word go out of your mouth till the day when I say, Give a loud cry; then give a loud cry.

  1157. Jos6:13 And the seven priests with their seven horns went on before the ark of the Lord, blowing their horns: the armed men went before them, and the mass of the people went after the ark of the Lord, blowing their horns.

  1158. Jos6:15 Then on the seventh day they got up early, at the dawn of the day, and went round the town in the same way, but that day they went round it seven times.

  1159. Jos6:20 So the people gave a loud cry, and the horns were sounded; and on hearing the horns the people gave a loud cry, and the wall came down flat, so that the people went up into the town, every man going straight before him, and they took the town.

  1160. Jos6:26 Then Joshua gave the people orders with an oath, saying, Let that man be cursed before the Lord who puts his hand to the building up of this town: with the loss of his first son will he put the first stone of it in place, and with the loss of his youngest son he will put up its doors.

  1161. Jos7:2 Now Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is by the side of Beth-aven, on the east side of Beth-el, and said to them, Go up and make a search through the land. And the men went up and saw how Ai was placed.

  1162. Jos7:7 And Joshua said, O Lord God, why have you taken us over Jordan only to give us up into the hands of the Amorites for our destruction? If only it had been enough for us to keep on the other side of Jordan!

  1163. Jos7:12 For this reason the children of Israel have given way, turning their backs in flight before their attackers, because they are cursed: I will no longer be with you, if you do not put the cursed thing away from among you.

  1164. Jos7:13 Up! make the people holy; say to them, Make yourselves holy before tomorrow, for the Lord, the God of Israel, has said, There is a cursed thing among you, O Israel, and you will give way before your attackers in the fight till the cursed thing has been taken away from among you.

  1165. Jos8:3 So Joshua and the fighting-men got ready to go up against Ai; and Joshua took thirty thousand men of war, and sent them out by night.

  1166. Jos8:4 And he gave them their orders, saying, Go and take up your position secretly at the back of the town: do not go very far away, and let all of you be ready:

  1167. Jos8:5 And I and all the people with me will come near the town, and when they come out against us as they did before, we will go in flight from them;

  1168. Jos8:8 And when you have taken the town, put fire to it, as the Lord has said: see, I have given you your orders.

  1169. Jos8:14 Now when the king of Ai saw it, he got up quickly and went out to war against Israel, he and all his people, to the slope going down to the valley; but he had no idea that a secret force was waiting at the back of the town.

  1170. Jos8:16 And all the people in Ai came together to go after them; and they went after Joshua, moving away from the town.

  1171. Jos8:19 Then the secret force came quickly from their place, and running forward when they saw his hand stretched out, went into the town and took it, and put fire to it straight away.

  1172. Jos8:20 Then the men of Ai, looking back, saw the smoke of the town going up to heaven, and were unable to go this way or that: and the people who had gone in flight to the waste land were turned back on those who were coming after them.

  1173. Jos8:22 Then the other force came out of the town against them, so that they were being attacked on this side and on that: and Israel overcame them and let not one of them get away with his life.

  1174. Jos8:24 Then, after the destruction of all the people of Ai in the field and in the waste land where they went after them, and when all the people had been put to death without mercy, all Israel went back to Ai, and put to death all who were in it without mercy.

  1175. Jos8:29 And he put the king of Ai to death, hanging him on a tree till evening: and when the sun went down, Joshua gave them orders to take his body down from the tree, and put it in the public place of the town, covering it with a great mass of stones, which is there to this day.

  1176. Jos9:1 Now on hearing the news of these things, all the kings on the west side of Jordan, in the hill-country and the lowlands and by the Great Sea in front of Lebanon, the Hittites and the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites,

  1177. Jos9:11 So the responsible men and all the people of our country said to us, Take food with you for the journey and go to them, and say to them, We are your servants: so now make an agreement with us.

  1178. Jos9:12 This bread which we have with us for our food, we took warm and new from our houses when starting on our journey to you; but now see, it has become dry and broken up.

  1179. Jos9:19 But all the chiefs said to the people, We have taken an oath to them by the Lord, the God of Israel, and so we may not put our hands on them.

  1180. Jos9:22 Then Joshua sent for them, and said to them, Why have you been false to us, saying, We are very far from you, when you are living among us?

  1181. Jos9:24 And, answering Joshua, they said, Because it came to the ears of your servants that the Lord your God had given orders to his servant Moses to give you all this land, and to send destruction on all the people living in it, because of you; so, fearing greatly for our lives because of you, we have done this.

  1182. Jos9:25 And now we are in your hands: do to us whatever seems good and right to you.

  1183. Jos10:1 Now when it came to the ears of Adoni-zedek, king of Jerusalem, that Joshua had taken Ai, and had given it up to the curse (for as he had done to Jericho and its king, so he had done to Ai and its king); and that the people of Gibeon had made peace with Israel and were living among them;

  1184. Jos10:3 So Adoni-zedek, king of Jerusalem, sent to Hoham, king of Hebron, and to Piram, king of Jarmuth, and to Japhia, king of Lachish, and to Debir, king of Eglon, saying,

  1185. Jos10:6 And the men of Gibeon sent to Joshua to the tent-circle at Gilgal, saying, Be not slow to send help to your servants; come up quickly to our support and keep us safe: for all the kings of the Amorites from the hill-country have come together against us.

  1186. Jos10:11 And in their flight before Israel, on the way down from Beth-horon, the Lord sent down great stones from heaven on them all the way to Azekah, causing their death: those whose death was caused by the stones were more than those whom the children of Israel put to death with the sword.

  1187. Jos10:12 It was on the day when the Lord gave up the Amorites into the hands of the children of Israel that Joshua said to the Lord, before the eyes of Israel, Sun, be at rest over Gibeon; and you, O moon, in the valley of Aijalon.

  1188. Jos10:13 And the sun was at rest and the moon kept its place till the nation had given punishment to their attackers. (Is it not recorded in the book of Jashar?) So the sun kept its place in the middle of the heavens, and was waiting, and did not go down, for the space of a day.

  1189. Jos10:14 And there was no day like that, before it or after it, when the Lord gave ear to the voice of a man; for the Lord was fighting for Israel.

  1190. Jos10:18 And Joshua said, Let great stones be rolled against the mouth of the hole, and let men keep watch by it:

  1191. Jos10:19 But do you, without waiting, go after their army, attacking them from the back; do not let them get into their towns, for the Lord your God has given them into your hands.

  1192. Jos10:20 Now when Joshua and the children of Israel had come to the end of their war of complete destruction, and had put to death all but a small band who had got safely into the walled towns,

  1193. Jos10:27 And when the sun went down, they were taken down from the trees, by Joshua's orders, and put into the hole where they had gone to be safe; and great stones were placed at the mouth of the hole, where they are to this day.

  1194. Jos10:33 Then Horam, king of Gezer, came up to the help of Lachish; and Joshua overcame him and his people, putting all of them to death.

  1195. Jos11:1 Now Jabin, king of Hazor, hearing of these things, sent to Jobab, king of Madon, and to the king of Shimron, and to the king of Achshaph,

  1196. Jos11:20 For the Lord made them strong in heart to go to war against Israel, so that he might give them up to the curse without mercy, and that destruction might come on them, as the Lord had given orders to Moses.

  1197. Jos13:1 Now Joshua was old and full of years; and the Lord said to him, You are old and full of years, and there is still very much land to be taken.

  1198. Jos13:5 And the land of the Gebalites, and all Lebanon, looking east, from Baal-gad under Mount Hermon as far as Hamath:

  1199. Jos14:4 Because the children of Joseph were two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim; and they gave the Levites no part in the land, only towns for their living-places, with the grass-lands for their cattle and for their property.

  1200. Jos14:7 I was forty years old when Moses, the servant of the Lord, sent me from Kadesh-barnea to make a search through the land; and the account which I gave him was in keeping with his desire.

  1201. Jos14:9 And on that day Moses took an oath, saying, Truly the land where your feet have been placed will become a heritage for you and your children for ever, because you have been true to the Lord your God with all your heart.

  1202. Jos14:11 And still, I am as strong today as I was when Moses sent me out: as my strength was then, so is it now, for war and for all the business of life.

  1203. Jos15:18 Now when she came to him, he put into her mind the idea of requesting a field from her father: and she got down from her ass; and Caleb said to her, What is it?

  1204. Jos17:4 And they came before Eleazar the priest, and Joshua, the son of Nun, and before the chiefs, saying, The Lord gave orders to Moses to give us a heritage among our brothers: so in agreement with the orders of the Lord he gave them a heritage among their father's brothers.

  1205. Jos17:12 But the children of Manasseh were not able to make the people of those towns go out; but the Canaanites would go on living in that land.

  1206. Jos17:14 Then the children of Joseph said to Joshua, Why have you given me only one part and one stretch of land for my heritage? For through the blessing given to me by the Lord up to now, I am a great people.

  1207. Jos17:17 Then Joshua said to the children of Joseph, to Ephraim and Manasseh, You are a great people, and have great power: you are not to have one property only,

  1208. Jos18:3 Then Joshua said to the children of Israel, Why are you so slow to go in and take up your heritage in the land which the Lord, the God of your fathers, has given you?

  1209. Jos18:8 So the men got up and went; and Joshua gave orders to those who went, to make a record of the land, saying, Go up and down through the land, and make a record of it and come back here to me, and I will make the distribution for you here by the decision of the Lord in Shiloh.

  1210. Jos19:49 So the distribution of the land and its limits was complete; and the children of Israel gave Joshua, the son of Nun, a heritage among them;

  1211. Jos20:1 And the Lord said to Joshua,

  1212. Jos20:2 Say to the children of Israel, Let certain towns be marked out as safe places, as I said to you by the mouth of Moses,

  1213. Jos20:3 So that any man who in error and without design has taken the life of another, may go in flight to them: and they will be safe places for you from him who has the right of punishment for blood.

  1214. Jos20:6 And he is to go on living in that town till he has to come before the meeting of the people to be judged; (till the death of him who is high priest at that time:) then the taker of life may come back to his town and to his house, to the town from which he had gone in flight.

  1215. Jos20:9 These were the towns marked out for all the children of Israel and for the man from a strange country living among them, so that anyone causing the death of another in error, might go in flight there, and not be put to death by him who has the right of punishment for blood till he had come before the meeting of the people.

  1216. Jos21:2 And said to them in Shiloh in the land of Canaan, The Lord gave orders by Moses that we were to have towns for living in, with their grass-lands for our cattle.

  1217. Jos21:43 So the Lord gave to Israel all the land which he gave by oath to their fathers; so it became their heritage and their living-place.

  1218. Jos22:5 Only take great care to do the orders and the law which Moses, the Lord's servant, gave you; to have love for the Lord your God and to go in all his ways; and to keep his laws and to be true to him and to be his servants with all your heart and with all your soul.

  1219. Jos22:8 And said to them, Go back with much wealth to your tents, and with very much cattle, with silver and gold and brass and iron, and with a very great store of clothing; give your brothers a part of the goods taken in the war.

  1220. Jos22:9 So Reuben and Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh went back, parting from the children of Israel at Shiloh in the land of Canaan, to go to the land of Gilead, to the land of their heritage which had been given to them by the Lord's order to Moses.

  1221. Jos22:11 And news came to the children of Israel, See, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh have put up an altar opposite the land of Canaan, in the country by Jordan on the side which is Israel's.

  1222. Jos22:12 Then all the meeting of the children of Israel, hearing this, came together at Shiloh to go up against them to war.

  1223. Jos22:15 And they came to the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh, to the land of Gilead, and said to them,

  1224. Jos22:16 This is what all the meeting of the people of the Lord has said, What is this wrong which you have done against the God of Israel, turning back this day from the Lord and building an altar for yourselves, and being false to the Lord?

  1225. Jos22:19 But if the land you now have is unclean, come over into the Lord's land where his House is, and take up your heritage among us: but do not be false to the Lord and to us by building yourselves an altar in addition to the altar of the Lord our God.

  1226. Jos22:23 That we have made ourselves an altar, being false to the Lord, keep us not safe from death this day; and if for the purpose of offering burned offerings on it and meal offerings, or peace-offerings, let the Lord himself send punishment for it;

  1227. Jos22:24 And if we have not, in fact, done this designedly and with purpose, having in our minds the fear that in time to come your children might say to our children, What have you to do with the Lord, the God of Israel?

  1228. Jos22:25 For the Lord has made Jordan a line of division between us and you, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad; you have no part in the Lord: so your children will make our children give up fearing the Lord.

  1229. Jos22:26 So we said, Let us now make an altar for ourselves, not for burned offerings or for the offerings of beasts:

  1230. Jos22:27 But to be a witness between us and you, and between the future generations, that we have the right of worshipping the Lord with our burned offerings and our offerings of beasts and our peace-offerings; so that your children will not be able to say to our children in time to come, You have no part in the Lord.

  1231. Jos22:29 Never let it be said that we were false to the Lord, turning back this day from him and building an altar for burned offerings and meal offerings and offerings of beasts, in addition to the altar of the Lord our God which is before his House.

  1232. Jos22:33 And the children of Israel were pleased about this; and they gave praise to God, and had no more thought of going to war against the children of Reuben and the children of Gad for the destruction of their land.

  1233. Jos23:6 So be very strong to keep and do whatever is recorded in the book of the law of Moses, not turning away from it to the right or to the left;

  1234. Jos23:7 Have nothing to do with these nations who still are living among you; let not their gods be named by you or used in your oaths; do not be their servants or give them worship:

  1235. Jos23:11 So keep watch on yourselves, and see that you have love for the Lord your God.

  1236. Jos23:12 For if you go back, joining yourselves to the rest of these nations who are still among you, getting married to them and living with them and they with you:

  1237. Jos23:13 Then you may be certain that the Lord your God will not go on driving these nations out from before you; but they will become a danger and a cause of sin to you, a whip for your sides and thorns in your eyes, till you are cut off from this good land which the Lord your God has given you.

  1238. Jos23:16 If the agreement of the Lord your God, which was given to you by his orders, is broken, and you become the servants of other gods and give them worship, then the wrath of the Lord will be burning against you, and you will quickly be cut off from the good land which he has given you.

  1239. Jos24:4 And to Isaac I gave Jacob and Esau: to Esau I gave Mount Seir, as his heritage; but Jacob and his children went down to Egypt.

  1240. Jos24:10 But I did not give ear to Balaam; and so he went on blessing you; and I kept you safe from him.

  1241. Jos24:15 And if it seems evil to you to be the servants of the Lord, make the decision this day whose servants you will be: of the gods whose servants your fathers were across the River, or of the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living: but I and my house will be the servants of the Lord.

  1242. Jos24:16 Then the people in answer said, Never will we give up the Lord to be the servants of other gods;

  1243. Jos24:19 And Joshua said to the people, You are not able to be the servants of the Lord, for he is a holy God, a God who will not let his honour be given to another: he will have no mercy on your wrongdoing or your sins.

  1244. Jos24:22 And Joshua said to the people, You are witnesses against yourselves that you have made the decision to be the servants of the Lord. And they said, We are witnesses.

  1245. Jug1:1 Now after the death of Joshua, the children of Israel made request to the Lord, saying, Who is to go up first to make war for us against the Canaanites?

  1246. Jug1:14 Now when she came to him, he put into her mind the idea of requesting a field from her father: and she got down from her ass; and Caleb said to her, What is it?

  1247. Jug1:27 And Manasseh did not take away the land of the people of Beth-shean and its daughter-towns, or of Taanach and its daughter-towns, or of the people of Dor and its daughter-towns, or of the people of Ibleam and its daughter-towns, or of the people of Megiddo and its daughter-towns, driving them out; but the Canaanites would go on living in that land.

  1248. Jug1:34 And the children of Dan were forced into the hill-country by the Amorites, who would not let them come down into the valley;

  1249. Jug1:35 For the Amorites would go on living in Mount Heres, in Aijalon, and in Shaalbim; but the children of Joseph became stronger than they, and put them to forced work.

  1250. Jug2:6 And Joshua let the people go away, and the children of Israel went, every man to his heritage, to take the land for themselves.

  1251. Jug2:14 And the wrath of the Lord was burning against Israel, and he gave them up into the hands of those who violently took their property, and into the hands of their haters all round them, so that they were forced to give way before them.

  1252. Jug2:17 But still they would not give ear to their judges, but went after other gods and gave them worship; quickly turning from the way in which their fathers had gone, keeping the orders of the Lord; but they did not do so.

  1253. Jug2:19 But whenever the judge was dead, they went back and did more evil than their fathers, going after other gods, to be their servants and their worshippers; giving up nothing of their sins and their hard-hearted ways.

  1254. Jug2:22 In order to put Israel to the test, and see if they will keep the way of the Lord, walking in it as their fathers did, or not.

  1255. Jug3:2 Only because of the generations of the children of Israel, for the purpose of teaching them war--only those who up till then had no experience of it;

  1256. Jug3:3 The five chiefs of the Philistines, and all the Canaanites and the Zidonians and the Hivites living in Mount Lebanon, from the mountain Baal-hermon as far as Hamath:

  1257. Jug3:4 For the purpose of testing Israel by them, to see if they would give ear to the orders of the Lord, which he had given to their fathers by the hand of Moses.

  1258. Jug3:12 Then the children of Israel again did evil in the eyes of the Lord; and the Lord made Eglon, king of Moab, strong against Israel, because they had done evil in the Lord's eyes.

  1259. Jug3:25 And they went on waiting till they were shamed, but the doors were still shut; so they took the key, and, opening them, saw their lord stretched out dead on the floor.

  1260. Jug3:27 And when he came there, he had a horn sounded in the hill-country of Ephraim, and all the children of Israel went down with him from the hill-country, and he at their head.

  1261. Jug3:28 And he said to them, Come after me; for the Lord has given the Moabites, your haters, into your hands. So they went down after him and took the crossing-places of Jordan against Moab, and let no one go across.

  1262. Jug4:1 And the children of Israel again did evil in the eyes of the Lord when Ehud was dead.

  1263. Jug4:9 And she said, I will certainly go with you: though you will get no honour in your undertaking, for the Lord will give Sisera into the hands of a woman. So Deborah got up and went with Barak to Kedesh.

  1264. Jug4:18 And Jael went out to Sisera, and said to him, Come in, my lord, come in to me without fear. So he went into her tent, and she put a cover over him.

  1265. Jug4:22 Then Jael went out, and meeting Barak going after Sisera, said to him, Come, and I will let you see the man you are searching for. So he came into her tent and saw, and there was Sisera stretched out dead with the tent-pin in his head.

  1266. Jug4:24 And the power of the children of Israel went on increasing against Jabin, king of Canaan, till he was cut off.

  1267. Jug5:1 At that time Deborah and Barak, the son of Abinoam, made this song, saying:

  1268. Jug5:2 Because of the flowing hair of the fighters in Israel, because the people gave themselves freely, give praise to the Lord.

  1269. Jug5:4 Lord, when you went out from Seir, moving like an army from the field of Edom, the earth was shaking and the heavens were troubled, and the clouds were dropping water.

  1270. Jug5:16 Why did you keep quiet among the sheep, hearing nothing but the watchers piping to the flocks?

  1271. Jug5:18 It was the people of Zebulun who put their lives in danger, even to death, with Naphtali on the high places of the field.

  1272. Jug5:23 A curse, a curse on Meroz! said the angel of the Lord. A bitter curse on her townspeople! Because they came not to the help of the Lord, to the help of the Lord among the strong ones.

  1273. Jug5:28 Looking out from the window she gave a cry, the mother of Sisera was crying out through the window, Why is his carriage so long in coming? When will the noise of his wheels be sounding?

  1274. Jug5:31 So may destruction come on all your haters, O Lord; but let your lovers be like the sun going out in his strength. And for forty years the land had peace.

  1275. Jug6:4 And put their army in position against them; and they took all the produce of the earth as far as Gaza, till there was no food in Israel, or any sheep or oxen or asses.

  1276. Jug6:13 Then Gideon said to him, O my lord, if the Lord is with us why has all this come on us? And where are all his works of power, of which our fathers have given us word, saying, Did not the Lord take us out of Egypt? But now he has given us up, handing us over to the power of Midian.

  1277. Jug6:18 Do not go away till I come with my offering and put it before you. And he said, I will not go away before you come back.

  1278. Jug6:27 Then Gideon took ten of his servants and did as the Lord had said to him; but fearing to do it by day, because of his father's people and the men of the town, he did it by night.

  1279. Jug6:32 So that day he gave him the name of Jerubbaal, saying, Let Baal take up his cause against him because his altar has been broken down.

  1280. Jug6:35 And he sent through all Manasseh, and they came after him; and he sent to Asher and Zebulun and Naphtali, and they came up and were joined to the others.

  1281. Jug7:2 And the Lord said to Gideon, So great is the number of your people, that if I give the Midianites into their hands they will be uplifted in pride over me and will say, I myself have been my saviour.

  1282. Jug7:3 So now, let it be given out to the people that anyone who is shaking with fear is to go back from Mount Galud. So twenty-two thousand of the people went back, but there were still ten thousand.

  1283. Jug7:5 So he took the people down to the water; and the Lord said to Gideon, Put on one side by themselves all those drinking up the water with their tongues like a dog; and in the same way, all those who go down on their knees to the water while drinking.

  1284. Jug7:6 Now the number of those who took up the water with their tongues was three hundred; all the rest of the people went down on their knees to the water.

  1285. Jug7:10 But if you have fear of going down, take your servant Purah with you and go down to the tents;

  1286. Jug7:15 Then Gideon, hearing the story of the dream and the sense in which they took it, gave worship; then he went back to the tents of Israel, and said, Up! for the Lord has given the army of Midian into your hands.

  1287. Jug7:19 So Gideon and the three hundred men who were with him came to the outer line of tents, at the start of the middle watch, when the watchmen had only then taken their stations; and the horns were sounded and the vessels broken.

  1288. Jug7:20 So the three bands all gave a loud note on their horns, and when the vessels had been broken, they took the flaming branches in their left hands, and the horns in their right hands ready for blowing, crying out, For the Lord and for Gideon.

  1289. Jug7:24 Then Gideon sent through all the hill-country of Ephraim saying, Come down against Midian, and keep the ways across Jordan before they come. So all the men of Ephraim, massing themselves together, kept the ways across Jordan.

  1290. Jug8:1 And the men of Ephraim came and said to him, Why did you not send for us when you went to war against Midian? And they said sharp and angry words to him.

  1291. Jug8:3 God has given into your hands the chiefs of Midian, Oreb and Zeeb; what have I been able to do in comparison with you? And when he said this, their feeling about him became kinder.

  1292. Jug8:7 Then Gideon said, Because of this, when the Lord has given Zebah and Zalmunna into my hands, I will have you stretched on a bed of thorns of the waste land and on sharp stems, and have you crushed as grain is crushed on a grain-floor.

  1293. Jug8:9 So he said to the men of Penuel, When I come back in peace, I will have this tower broken down.

  1294. Jug8:15 So he came to the men of Succoth and said, Here are Zebah and Zalmunna, on account of whom you made sport of me, saying, Are the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna even now in your hand, that we are to give bread to your army who are overcome with weariness?

  1295. Jug8:25 And they gave answer, We will gladly give them. So they put down a robe, every man dropping into it the ear-rings he had taken.

  1296. Jug8:28 So Midian was broken before the children of Israel and the Midianites never got back their strength. And the land had peace for forty years, in the days of Gideon.

  1297. Jug9:1 Now Abimelech, the son of Jerubbaal, went to Shechem to his mother's family, and said to them and to all the family of his mother's father,

  1298. Jug9:2 Say now in the ears of all the townsmen of Shechem, Is it better for you to be ruled by all the seventy sons of Jerubbaal or by one man only? And keep in mind that I am your bone and your flesh.

  1299. Jug9:8 One day the trees went out to make a king for themselves; and they said to the olive-tree, Be king over us.

  1300. Jug9:9 But the olive-tree said to them, Am I to give up my wealth of oil, by which men give honour to God, and go waving over the trees?

  1301. Jug9:11 But the fig-tree said to them, Am I to give up my sweet taste and my good fruit and go waving over the trees?

  1302. Jug9:13 But the vine said to them, Am I to give up my wine, which makes glad God and men, to go waving over the trees?

  1303. Jug9:24 So that punishment for the violent attack made on the seventy sons of Jerubbaal, and for their blood, might come on Abimelech, their brother, who put them to death, and on the townsmen of Shechem who gave him their help in putting his brothers to death.

  1304. Jug9:31 And he sent to Abimelech at Arumah, saying, See, Gaal, the son of Ebed, and his brothers have come to Shechem, and they are working up the town against you.

  1305. Jug9:33 And in the morning, when the sun is up, get up early and make a rush on the town; and when he and his people come out against you, do to them whatever you have a chance to do.

  1306. Jug9:41 Then Abimelech went back to Arumah; and Zebul sent Gaal and his brothers away and would not let them go on living in Shechem.

  1307. Jug9:52 And Abimelech came to the tower and made an attack on it, and got near to the door of the tower for the purpose of firing it.

  1308. Jug9:56 In this way Abimelech was rewarded by God for the evil he had done to his father in putting his seventy brothers to death;

  1309. Jug10:6 And again the children of Israel did evil in the eyes of the Lord, worshipping the Baals and Astartes, and the gods of Aram and the gods of Zidon and the gods of Moab and the gods of the children of Ammon and the gods of the Philistines; they gave up the Lord and were servants to him no longer.

  1310. Jug10:10 Then the children of Israel, crying out to the Lord, said, Great is our sin against you, for we have given up our God and have been servants to the Baals.

  1311. Jug11:5 And when the children of Ammon made war against Israel, the responsible men of Gilead went to get Jephthah back from the land of Tob;

  1312. Jug11:12 Then Jephthah sent men to the king of the children of Ammon, saying, What have you against me that you have come to make war against my land?

  1313. Jug11:13 And the king of the children of Ammon said to the men sent by Jephthah, Because Israel, when he came up out of Egypt, took away my land, from the Arnon as far as the Jabbok and as far as Jordan: so now, give me back those lands quietly.

  1314. Jug11:16 But when they came up from Egypt, Israel went through the waste land to the Red Sea and came to Kadesh;

  1315. Jug11:17 Then Israel sent men to the king of Edom saying, Let me now go through your land; but the king of Edom did not give ear to them. And in the same way he sent to the king of Moab, but he would not; so Israel went on living in Kadesh.

  1316. Jug11:20 But Sihon would not give way and let Israel go through his land; and Sihon got together all his people, and put his army in position in Jahaz, and made war on Israel.

  1317. Jug11:25 What! are you any better than Balak, the son of Zippor, king of Moab? Did he ever take up a cause against Israel or make war against them?

  1318. Jug11:26 While Israel was living in Heshbon and its daughter-towns and in Aroer and its daughter-towns and in all the towns which are by the side of the Arnon, for three hundred years, why did you not get them back at that time?

  1319. Jug11:30 And Jephthah took an oath to the Lord, and said, If you will give the children of Ammon into my hands,

  1320. Jug11:31 Then whoever comes out from the door of my house, meeting me when I come back in peace from the children of Ammon, will be the Lord's and I will give him as a burned offering.

  1321. Jug11:33 And he made an attack on them from Aroer all the way to Minnith, overrunning twenty towns, as far as Abel-cheramim, and put great numbers to the sword. So the children of Ammon were crushed before the children of Israel.

  1322. Jug11:34 Then Jephthah came back to his house in Mizpah, and his daughter came out, meeting him on his way with music and with dances; she was his only child; he had no other sons or daughters.

  1323. Jug11:35 And when he saw her he was overcome with grief, and said, Ah! my daughter! I am crushed with sorrow, and it is you who are the chief cause of my trouble; for I have made an oath to the Lord and I may not take it back.

  1324. Jug12:1 Now the men of Ephraim came together and took up arms and went over to Zaphon; and they said to Jephthah, Why did you go over to make war against the children of Ammon without sending for us to go with you? Now we will put your house on fire over you.

  1325. Jug13:1 And the children of Israel again did evil in the eyes of the Lord; and the Lord gave them into the hands of the Philistines for forty years.

  1326. Jug13:6 Then the woman came in, and said to her husband, A man came to me, and his form was like the form of a god, causing great fear; I put no question to him about where he came from, and he did not give me his name;

  1327. Jug13:19 So Manoah took the young goat with its meal offering, offering it on the rock to the Lord, who did strange things.

  1328. Jug13:20 And when the flame went up to heaven from the altar, the angel of the Lord went up in the flame of the altar, while Manoah and his wife were looking on; and they went down on their faces to the earth.

  1329. Jug13:22 And Manoah said to his wife, Death will certainly be our fate, for it is a god whom we have seen.

  1330. Jug13:25 And the spirit of the Lord first came on him in Mahaneh-dan, between Zorah and Eshtaol.

  1331. Jug14:3 Then his father and mother said to him, Is there no woman among the daughters of your relations or among all my people, that you have to go for your wife to the Philistines, who are without circumcision? But Samson said to his father, Get her for me, for she is pleasing to me.

  1332. Jug14:5 Then Samson went down to Timnah (and his father and his mother,) and came to the vine-gardens of Timnah; and a young lion came rushing out at him.

  1333. Jug14:8 Then after a time he went back to take her; and turning from the road to see the dead body of the lion, he saw a mass of bees in the body of the lion, and honey there.

  1334. Jug14:9 And he took the honey in his hand, and went on, tasting it on the way; and when he came to his father and mother he gave some to them; but did not say that he had taken the honey from the body of the lion.

  1335. Jug14:11 And he took thirty friends, and they were with him.

  1336. Jug14:15 So on the fourth day they said to Samson's wife, Get from your husband the answer to his question by some trick or other, or we will have you and your father's house burned with fire; did you get us here to take all we have?

  1337. Jug15:1 Now a short time after, at the time of the grain-cutting, Samson, taking with him a young goat, went to see his wife; and he said, I will go in to my wife into the bride's room. But her father would not let him go in.

  1338. Jug15:2 And her father said, It seemed to me that you had only hate for her; so I gave her to your friend: but is not her younger sister fairer than she? so please take her in place of the other.

  1339. Jug15:10 And the men of Judah said, Why have you come up against us? And they said, We have come up to take Samson, and to do to him as he has done to us.

  1340. Jug15:12 Then they said to him, We have come down to take you and give you up into the hands of the Philistines. And Samson said to them, Give me your oath that you will not make an attack on me yourselves.

  1341. Jug15:13 And they said, No; we will take you and give you up into their hands, but truly we will not put you to death. So knotting two new cords round him they took him up from the rock.

  1342. Jug15:14 And when he came to Lehi, the Philistines came out, meeting him with loud cries; then the spirit of the Lord came rushing on him, and the cords on his arms became like grass which has been burned with fire, and the bands came falling off his hands.

  1343. Jug16:2 And it was said to the Gazites, Samson is here. So they went round, watching for him all day at the doorway of the town, but at night they kept quiet, saying, When daylight comes we will put him to death.

  1344. Jug16:11 And he said to her, If they only put round me new thick cords which have never been used, then I will become feeble and will be like any other man.

  1345. Jug16:16 So day after day she gave him no peace, for ever questioning him till his soul was troubled to death.

  1346. Jug16:18 And when Delilah saw that he had let her see into his heart, she sent word to the chiefs of the Philistines saying, Come up this time, for he has let out all his heart to me. Then the chiefs of the Philistines came to her, with the money in their hands.

  1347. Jug16:23 And the chiefs of the Philistines came together to make a great offering to Dagon their god, and to be glad; for they said, Our god has given into our hands Samson our hater.

  1348. Jug16:27 Now the house was full of men and women; and all the lords of the Philistines were there; and about three thousand men and women were on the roof, looking on while Samson made sport.

  1349. Jug17:3 And he gave back the eleven hundred shekels of silver to his mother, and his mother said, I have made the silver holy to the Lord from me for my son, to make a pictured image and a metal image.

  1350. Jug17:8 And he went away from the town of Beth-lehem-judah, looking for somewhere to make his living-place; and on his journey he came to the hill-country of Ephraim, to the house of Micah.

  1351. Jug17:9 And Micah said to him, Where do you come from? And he said to him, I am a Levite from Beth-lehem-judah, and I am looking for a living-place.

  1352. Jug17:11 And the Levite said he would make his living-place with the man, and he became to him as one of his sons.

  1353. Jug18:1 In those days there was no king in Israel, and in those days the Danites were looking for a heritage for themselves, to be their living-place; for up to that time no distribution of land had been made to them among the tribes of Israel.

  1354. Jug18:2 So the children of Dan sent five men from among their number, strong men, from Zorah and from Eshtaol, to take a look at the land and make a search through it; and they said to them, Go and make a search through the land; and they came to the hill-country of Ephraim, to the house of Micah, where they made a stop for the night.

  1355. Jug18:9 And they said, Up! and let us go against Laish; for we have seen the land, and it is very good: why are you doing nothing? Do not be slow to go in and take the land for your heritage.

  1356. Jug18:10 When you come there you will come to a people living without thought of danger; and the land is wide, and God has given it into your hands: a place where there is everything on earth for man's needs.

  1357. Jug18:19 And they said to him, Be quiet; say nothing, and come with us and be our father and priest; is it better for you to be priest to one man's house or to be priest to a tribe and a family in Israel?

  1358. Jug18:30 (And the children of Dan put up the pictured image for themselves; and Jonathan, the son of Gershom, the son of Moses, and his sons were priests for the tribe of the Danites till the day when the ark was taken prisoner.)

  1359. Jug19:3 Then her husband got up and went after her, with the purpose of talking kindly to her, and taking her back with him; he had with him his young man and two asses: and she took him into her father's house, and her father, when he saw him, came forward to him with joy.

  1360. Jug19:5 Now on the fourth day they got up early in the morning and he made ready to go away; but the girl's father said to his son-in-law, Take a little food to keep up your strength, and then go on your way.

  1361. Jug19:7 And the man got up to go away, but his father-in-law would not let him go, so he took his rest there again for the night.

  1362. Jug19:8 Then early on the morning of the fifth day he got up to go away; but the girl's father said, Keep up your strength; so the two of them had a meal, and the man and his woman and his servant did not go till after the middle of the day.

  1363. Jug19:9 And when they got up to go away, his father-in-law, the girl's father, said to him, Now evening is coming on, so do not go tonight; see, the day is almost gone; take your rest here and let your heart be glad, and tomorrow early, go on your way back to your house.

  1364. Jug19:10 But the man would not be kept there that night, and he got up and went away and came opposite to Jebus (which is Jerusalem); and he had with him the two asses, ready for travelling, and his woman.

  1365. Jug19:15 And they went off the road there with the purpose of stopping for the night in Gibeah: and he went in, seating himself in the street of the town, for no one took them into his house for the night.

  1366. Jug19:22 While they were taking their pleasure at the meal, the good-for-nothing men of the town came round the house, giving blows on the door; and they said to the old man, the master of the house, Send out that man who came to your house, so that we may take our pleasure with him.

  1367. Jug19:25 But the men would not give ear to him: so the man took his woman and sent her out to them; and they took her by force, using her for their pleasure all night till the morning; and when dawn came they let her go.

  1368. Jug19:26 Then at the dawn of day the woman came, and, falling down at the door of the man's house where her master was, was stretched there till it was light.

  1369. Jug19:27 In the morning her master got up, and opening the door of the house went out to go on his way; and he saw his servant-wife stretched on the earth at the door of the house with her hands on the step.

  1370. Jug19:30 And he gave orders to the men whom he sent, saying, This is what you are to say to all the men of Israel, Has ever an act like this been done from the day when the children of Israel came out of Egypt to this day? Give thought to it, turning it over in your minds, and give your opinion of it.

  1371. Jug20:4 Then the Levite, the husband of the dead woman, said in answer, I came to Gibeah in the land of Benjamin, I and my servant-wife, for the purpose of stopping there for the night.

  1372. Jug20:5 And the townsmen of Gibeah came together against me, going round the house on all sides by night; it was their purpose to put me to death, and my servant-wife was violently used by them and is dead.

  1373. Jug20:8 Then all the people got up as one man and said, Not one of us will go to his tent or go back to his house:

  1374. Jug20:10 And we will take ten men out of every hundred, through all the tribes of Israel, a hundred out of every thousand, a thousand out of every ten thousand, to get food for the people, so that they may give to Gibeah of Benjamin the right punishment for the act of shame they have done in Israel.

  1375. Jug20:12 And the tribes of Israel sent men through all the tribe of Benjamin saying, What is this evil which has been done among you?

  1376. Jug20:13 Now give up those good-for-nothing persons in Gibeah so that we may put them to death, clearing away the evil from Israel. But the children of Benjamin would not give ear to the voice of their brothers, the children of Israel.

  1377. Jug20:14 And the children of Benjamin came together from all their towns to Gibeah, to go to war with the children of Israel.

  1378. Jug20:22 But the people, the men of Israel, taking heart again, put their forces in order and took up the same position as on the first day.

  1379. Jug20:23 Now the children of Israel went up, weeping before the Lord till evening, requesting the Lord and saying, Am I to go forward again to the fight against the children of Benjamin my brother? And the Lord said, Go up against him.

  1380. Jug20:25 And the second day Benjamin went out against them from Gibeah, cutting down eighteen thousand men of the children of Israel, all swordsmen.

  1381. Jug20:27 And the children of Israel made request to the Lord, (for the ark of the agreement of the Lord was there in those days,

  1382. Jug20:31 And the children of Benjamin went out against the people, moving away from the town; and as before, at their first attack, they put to death about thirty men of Israel on the highways, of which one goes up to Beth-el and the other to Gibeah, and in the open country.

  1383. Jug20:40 Then the sign went up out of the town in the pillar of smoke, and the Benjamites, turning back, saw all the town going up in smoke to heaven.

  1384. Jug21:1 Now the men of Israel had taken an oath in Mizpah, saying, Not one of us will give his daughter as a wife to Benjamin.

  1385. Jug21:5 And the children of Israel said, Who is there among all the tribes of Israel, who did not come up to the Lord at the meeting of all Israel? For they had taken a great oath that whoever did not come up to Mizpah to the Lord was to be put to death.

  1386. Jug21:7 What are we to do about wives for those who are still living? For we have taken an oath by the Lord that we will not give them our daughters for wives.

  1387. Jug21:10 So they (the meeting) sent twelve thousand of the best fighting-men, and gave them orders, saying, Go and put the people of Jabesh-gilead to the sword without mercy, with their women and their little ones.

  1388. Jug21:18 Seeing that we may not give them our daughters as wives? For the children of Israel had taken an oath, saying, Cursed is he who gives a wife to Benjamin.

  1389. Jug21:20 And they said to the men of Benjamin, Go into the vine-gardens, waiting there secretly,

  1390. Jug21:21 And watching; and if the daughters of Shiloh come out to take part in the dances, then come from the vine-gardens and take a wife for every one of you from among the daughters of Shiloh, and go back to the land of Benjamin.

  1391. Jug21:22 And when their fathers or their brothers come and make trouble, you are to say to them, Give them to us as an act of grace; for we did not take them as wives for ourselves in war; and if you yourselves had given them to us you would have been responsible for the broken oath.

  1392. Rut1:1 Now there came a time, in the days of the judges, when there was no food in the land. And a certain man went from Beth-lehem-judah, he and his wife and his two sons, to make a living-place in the country of Moab.

  1393. Rut1:6 So she and her daughters-in-law got ready to go back from the country of Moab, for news had come to her in the country of Moab that the Lord, in mercy for his people, had given them food.

  1394. Rut1:7 And she went out of the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her; and they went on their way to go back to the land of Judah.

  1395. Rut1:16 But Ruth said, Give up requesting me to go away from you, or to go back without you: for where you go I will go; and where you take your rest I will take my rest; your people will be my people, and your God my God.

  1396. Rut1:18 And when she saw that Ruth was strong in her purpose to go with her she said no more.

  1397. Rut1:19 So the two of them went on till they came to Beth-lehem. And when they came to Beth-lehem all the town was moved about them, and they said, Is this Naomi?

  1398. Rut2:7 And she said to me, Let me come into the grain-field and take up the grain after the cutters. So she came, and has been here from morning till now, without resting even for a minute.

  1399. Rut2:8 Then said Boaz to Ruth, Give ear to me, my daughter: do not go to take up the grain in another field, or go away from here, but keep here by my young women:

  1400. Rut2:9 Keep your eyes on the field they are cutting, and go after them; have I not given orders to the young men not to put a hand on you? And when you are in need of drink go to the vessels and take of what the young men have put there.

  1401. Rut2:12 The Lord give you a reward for what you have done, and may a full reward be given to you by the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take cover.

  1402. Rut2:15 And when she got ready to take up the grain, Boaz gave his young men orders, saying, Let her take it even from among the cut grain, and say nothing to her.

  1403. Rut2:16 And let some heads of grain be pulled out of what has been corded up, and dropped for her to take, and let no sharp word be said to her.

  1404. Rut2:23 So she kept near the servant-girls of Boaz to take up the grain till the cutting of the early grain and the cutting of the late grain were ended; and she went on living with her mother-in-law.

  1405. Rut3:3 So take a bath, and, after rubbing your body with sweet oil, put on your best robe, and go down to the grain-floor; but do not let him see you till he has come to the end of his meal.

  1406. Rut3:4 But see to it, when he goes to rest, that you take note of the place where he is sleeping, and go in there, and, uncovering his feet, take your place by him; and he will say what you are to do.

  1407. Rut3:7 Now when Boaz had taken meat and drink, and his heart was glad, he went to take his rest at the end of the mass of grain; then she came softly and, uncovering his feet, went to rest.

  1408. Rut3:10 And he said, May the Lord give you his blessing, my daughter: even better than what you did at the first is this last kind act you have done, in not going after young men, with or without wealth.

  1409. Rut3:13 Take your rest here tonight; and in the morning, if he will do for you what it is right for a relation to do, very well, let him do so: but if he will not, then by the living Lord I myself will do so.

  1410. Rut4:4 And it was in my mind to give you the chance of taking it, with the approval of those seated here and of the responsible men of my people. If you are ready to do what it is right for a relation to do, then do it: but if you will not do it, say so to me now; for there is no one who has the right to do it but you, and after you myself. And he said, I will do it.

  1411. Rut4:5 Then Boaz said, On the day when you take this field, you will have to take with it Ruth, the Moabitess, the wife of the dead, so that you may keep the name of the dead living in his heritage.

  1412. Rut4:6 And the near relation said, I am not able to do the relation's part, for fear of damaging the heritage I have: you may do it in my place, for I am not able to do it myself.

  1413. Rut4:17 And the women who were her neighbours gave it a name, saying, Naomi has a child; and they gave him the name of Obed: he is the father of Jesse, the father of David.

  1414. 1Sa1:3 Now this man went up from his town every year to give worship and to make offerings to the Lord of armies in Shiloh. And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the priests of the Lord, were there.

  1415. 1Sa1:7 And year by year, whenever she went up to the house of the Lord, she kept on attacking her, so that Hannah gave herself up to weeping and would take no food.

  1416. 1Sa1:9 So after they had taken food and wine in the guest room, Hannah got up. Now Eli the priest was seated by the pillars of the doorway of the Temple of the Lord.

  1417. 1Sa1:10 And with grief in her soul, weeping bitterly, she made her prayer to the Lord.

  1418. 1Sa1:11 And she made an oath, and said, O Lord of armies, if you will truly take note of the sorrow of your servant, not turning away from me but keeping me in mind, and will give me a man-child, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and his hair will never be cut.

  1419. 1Sa1:21 And the man Elkanah with all his family went up to make the year's offering to the Lord, and to give effect to his oath.

  1420. 1Sa1:23 And her husband Elkanah said to her, Do whatever seems right to you, but not till you have taken him from the breast; only may the Lord do as he has said. So the woman, waiting there, gave her son milk till he was old enough to be taken from the breast.

  1421. 1Sa2:15 And more than this, before the fat was burned, the priest's servant would come and say to the man who was making the offering, Give me some of the flesh to be cooked for the priest; he has no taste for meat cooked in water, but would have you give it uncooked.

  1422. 1Sa2:19 And his mother made him a little robe and took it to him every year when she came with her husband for the year's offering.

  1423. 1Sa2:28 Did I take him out of all the tribes of Israel to be my priest and to go up to my altar to make the smoke of the offerings go up and to take up the ephod? Did I give to your father's family all the offerings made by fire by the children of Israel?

  1424. 1Sa2:30 For this reason the Lord God of Israel has said, Truly I did say that your family and your father's people would have their place before me for ever: but now the Lord says, Let it not be so; I will give honour to those by whom I am honoured, and those who have no respect for me will be of small value in my eyes.

  1425. 1Sa2:36 Then it will be that the rest of your family, anyone who has not been cut off, will go down on his knees to him for a bit of silver or a bit of bread, and say, Be pleased to put me into one of the priest's places so that I may have a little food.

  1426. 1Sa3:2 And at that time, when Eli was resting in his place, (now his eyes were becoming clouded so that he was not able to see,)

  1427. 1Sa3:6 And again the Lord said, Samuel. And Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, Here am I; for you certainly said my name. But he said in answer, I said nothing, my son; go to your rest again.

  1428. 1Sa3:8 And for the third time the Lord said Samuel's name. And he got up and went to Eli and said, Here am I; for you certainly said my name. Then it was clear to Eli that the voice which had said the child's name was the Lord's.

  1429. 1Sa4:1 Now at that time the Philistines came together to make war against Israel, and the men of Israel went out to war against the Philistines and took up their position at the side of Eben-ezer: and the Philistines put their forces in position in Aphek.

  1430. 1Sa4:2 And the Philistines put their forces in order against Israel, and the fighting was hard, and Israel was overcome by the Philistines, who put to the sword about four thousand of their army in the field.

  1431. 1Sa4:5 And when the ark of the Lord's agreement came into the tent-circle, all Israel gave a great cry, so that the earth was sounding with it.

  1432. 1Sa4:15 Now Eli was ninety-eight years old, and his eyes were fixed so that he was not able to see.

  1433. 1Sa4:19 And his daughter-in-law, the wife of Phinehas, was with child and near the time when she would give birth; and when she had the news that the ark of God had been taken and that her father-in-law and her husband were dead, her pains came on her suddenly and she gave birth.

  1434. 1Sa4:20 And when she was very near death the women who were with her said, Have no fear, for you have given birth to a son. But she made no answer and gave no attention to it.

  1435. 1Sa4:21 And she gave the child the name of Ichabod, saying, The glory has gone from Israel: because the ark of God was taken and because of her father-in-law and her husband.

  1436. 1Sa5:10 So they sent the ark of God to Ekron. And when the ark of God came to Ekron, the people of the town made an outcry, saying, They have sent the ark of the God of Israel to us for the destruction of us and of our people.

  1437. 1Sa6:2 And the Philistines sent for the priests and those who were wise in secret arts, and said to them, What are we to do with the ark of the Lord? How are we to send it away to its place?

  1438. 1Sa6:12 And the cows took the straight way, by the road to Beth-shemesh; they went by the highway, not turning to the right or to the left, and the sound of their voices was clear on the road; and the lords of the Philistines went after them as far as the edge of Beth-shemesh.

  1439. 1Sa6:13 And the people of Beth-shemesh were cutting their grain in the valley, and lifting up their eyes they saw the ark and were full of joy when they saw it.

  1440. 1Sa6:20 And the men of Beth-shemesh said, Who is able to keep his place before the Lord, this holy God? and to whom may he go from us?

  1441. 1Sa6:21 And they sent men to the people living in Kiriath-jearim, saying, The Philistines have sent back the ark of the Lord; come and take it up to your country.

  1442. 1Sa7:1 So the men of Kiriath-jearim came and took the ark of the Lord to the house of Abinadab in Gibeah, and they made his son Eleazar holy and put the ark in his care.

  1443. 1Sa7:2 And the ark was in Kiriath-jearim for a long time, as much as twenty years: and all Israel was searching after the Lord with weeping.

  1444. 1Sa7:3 Then Samuel said to all Israel, If with all your hearts you would come back to the Lord, then put away all the strange gods and the Astartes from among you, and let your hearts be turned to the Lord, and be servants to him only: and he will make you safe from the hands of the Philistines.

  1445. 1Sa7:8 And the children of Israel said to Samuel, Go on crying to the Lord our God for us to make us safe from the hands of the Philistines.

  1446. 1Sa7:13 So the Philistines were overcome, and did not come into the country of Israel again: and all the days of Samuel the hand of the Lord was against the Philistines.

  1447. 1Sa8:5 And said to him, See now, you are old, and your sons do not go in your ways: give us a king now to be our judge, so that we may be like the other nations.

  1448. 1Sa8:6 But Samuel was not pleased when they said to him, Give us a king to be our judge. And Samuel made prayer to the Lord.

  1449. 1Sa8:7 And the Lord said to Samuel, Give ear to the voice of the people and what they say to you: they have not been turned away from you, but they have been turned away from me, not desiring me to be king over them.

  1450. 1Sa8:12 And he will make them captains of thousands and of fifties; some he will put to work ploughing and cutting his grain and making his instruments of war and building his war-carriages.

  1451. 1Sa8:19 But the people gave no attention to the voice of Samuel; and they said, No, but we will have a king over us,

  1452. 1Sa9:6 But the servant said to him, See now, in this town there is a man of God, who is highly honoured, and everything he says comes true: let us go there now; it may be that he will give us directions about our journey.

  1453. 1Sa9:8 But the servant said in answer, I have here a fourth part of a shekel of silver: I will give that to the man of God, and he will give us directions about our way.

  1454. 1Sa9:9 (In the past in Israel, when a man went to get directions from God, he said, Come let us go to the Seer, for he who now is named Prophet was in those days given the name of Seer.)

  1455. 1Sa9:11 And when they were on the way up to the town, they saw some young girls going out to get water and said to them, Is the seer here?

  1456. 1Sa9:13 When you come into the town you will see him straight away, before he goes up to the high place for the feast: the people are waiting for his blessing before starting the feast, and after that the guests will take part in it. So go up now and you will see him.

  1457. 1Sa9:14 So they went up to the town, and when they came inside the town, Samuel came face to face with them on his way to the high place.

  1458. 1Sa9:15 Now the day before Saul came, the word of God had come to Samuel, saying,

  1459. 1Sa9:24 And the cook took up the leg with the fat tail on it, and put it before Saul. And Samuel said, This is the part which has been kept for you: take it as your part of the feast; because it has been kept for you till the right time came and till the guests were present. So that day Saul took food with Samuel.

  1460. 1Sa9:26 And about dawn Samuel said to Saul on the roof, Get up so that I may send you away. So Saul got up, and he and Samuel went out together.

  1461. 1Sa10:2 When you have gone away from me today, you will see two men by the resting-place of Rachel's body, in the land of Benjamin at Zelzah; and they will say to you, The asses which you went in search of have come back, and now your father, caring no longer for the asses, is troubled about you, saying, What am I to do about my son?

  1462. 1Sa10:5 After that you will come to Gibeah, the hill of God, where an armed force of the Philistines is stationed: and when you come to the town, you will see a band of prophets coming down from the high place with instruments of music before them; and they will be acting like prophets:

  1463. 1Sa10:8 Then you are to go down before me to Gilgal, where I will come to you, for the offering of burned offerings and peace-offerings: go on waiting there for seven days till I come to you and make clear to you what you have to do.

  1464. 1Sa10:9 And it came about, that when he went away from Samuel, God gave him a changed heart: and all those signs took place that day.

  1465. 1Sa10:10 And when they came to Gibeah, a band of prophets came face to face with him; and the spirit of God came on him with power and he took his place among them as a prophet.

  1466. 1Sa11:2 And Nahash the Ammonite said to them, I will make an agreement with you on this condition, that all your right eyes are put out; so that I may make it a cause of shame to all Israel.

  1467. 1Sa11:6 And at their words, the spirit of God came on Saul with power, and he became very angry.

  1468. 1Sa11:7 And he took two oxen and, cutting them up, sent them through all the land of Israel by the hand of runners, saying, If any man does not come out after Saul and Samuel, this will be done to his oxen. And the fear of the Lord came on the people and they came out like one man.

  1469. 1Sa12:17 Is it not now the time of the grain cutting? My cry will go up to the Lord and he will send thunder and rain: so that you may see and be conscious of your great sin which you have done in the eyes of the Lord in desiring a king for yourselves.

  1470. 1Sa12:19 And all the people said to Samuel, Make prayer for us to the Lord your God so that death may not overtake us: for in addition to all our sins we have done this evil, in desiring a king.

  1471. 1Sa12:22 For the Lord will not give his people up, because of the honour of his name; for it was the Lord's pleasure to make of you a people for himself.

  1472. 1Sa12:23 And as for me, never will I go against the orders of the Lord by giving up my prayers for you: but I will go on teaching you the good and right way.

  1473. 1Sa13:1 ***

  1474. 1Sa13:3 And Jonathan made an attack on the armed force of the Philistines stationed at Gibeah; and news was given to the Philistines that the Hebrews were turned against them. And Saul had a horn sounded through all the land,

  1475. 1Sa13:4 And all Israel had the news that Saul had made an attack on the Philistines, and that Israel was bitterly hated by the Philistines. And the people came together after Saul to Gilgal.

  1476. 1Sa13:10 And when the burned offering was ended, Samuel came; and Saul went out to see him and to give him a blessing.

  1477. 1Sa13:20 But all the Israelites had to go to the Philistines to get their ploughs and blades and axes and hooks made sharp;

  1478. 1Sa14:4 Now between the narrow roads over the mountains by which Jonathan was making his way to the Philistines' forces, there was a sharp overhanging rock on one side, and a sharp rock on the other side: one was named Bozez and the other Seneh.

  1479. 1Sa14:16 And the watchmen of Saul, looking out from Geba in the land of Benjamin, saw all the army flowing away and running here and there.

  1480. 1Sa14:19 Now while Saul was talking to the priest, the noise in the tents of the Philistines became louder and louder; and Saul said to the priest, Take back your hand.

  1481. 1Sa14:24 And all the people were with Saul, about twenty thousand men, and the fight was general through all the hill-country of Ephraim; but Saul made a great error that day, by putting the people under an oath, saying, Let that man be cursed who takes food before evening comes and I have given punishment to those who are against me. So the people had not a taste of food.

  1482. 1Sa14:28 Then one of the people said to him, Your father put the people under an oath, saying, Let that man be cursed who takes any food this day. And the people were feeble, needing food.

  1483. 1Sa14:30 How much more if the people had freely taken their food from the goods of those who were fighting against them! would there not have been much greater destruction among the Philistines?

  1484. 1Sa14:33 Then it was said to Saul, See, the people are sinning against the Lord, taking the blood with the flesh. And he said to those who gave him the news, Now let a great stone be rolled to me here.

  1485. 1Sa14:34 And Saul said, Go about among the people and say to them, Let every man come here to me with his ox and his sheep, and put them to death here, and take his meal: do no sin against the Lord by taking the blood with the flesh. So all the people took their oxen with them that night and put them to death there.

  1486. 1Sa14:35 And Saul put up an altar to the Lord: this was the first altar which he put up to the Lord.

  1487. 1Sa14:39 For, by the living Lord, the saviour of Israel, even if the sinner is Jonathan, my son, death will certainly be his fate. But not a man among all the people gave him any answer.

  1488. 1Sa14:43 Then Saul said to Jonathan, Give me an account of what you have done. And Jonathan gave him the story and said, Certainly I took a little honey on the end of my rod; and now death is to be my fate.

  1489. 1Sa14:44 And Saul said, May God's punishment be on me if death is not your fate, Jonathan.

  1490. 1Sa15:1 And Samuel said to Saul, The Lord sent me to put the holy oil on you and to make you king over his people, over Israel: so give ear now to the words of the Lord.

  1491. 1Sa15:2 The Lord of armies says, I will give punishment to Amalek for what he did to Israel, fighting against him on the way when Israel came out of Egypt.

  1492. 1Sa15:6 And Saul said to the Kenites, Go away, take yourselves out from among the Amalekites, or destruction will overtake you with them: for you were kind to the children of Israel when they came out of Egypt. So the Kenites went away from among the Amalekites.

  1493. 1Sa15:7 And Saul made an attack on the Amalekites from Havilah on the road to Shur, which is before Egypt.

  1494. 1Sa15:10 Then the Lord said to Samuel,

  1495. 1Sa15:12 And early in the morning he got up and went to Saul; and word was given to Samuel that Saul had come to Carmel and put up a pillar, and had gone from there down to Gilgal.

  1496. 1Sa15:15 And Saul said, They have taken them from the Amalekites: for the people have kept the best of the sheep and of the oxen as an offering to the Lord your God; all the rest we have given up to destruction.

  1497. 1Sa15:21 But the people took some of their goods, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which were put to the curse, to make an offering of them to the Lord your God in Gilgal.

  1498. 1Sa15:22 And Samuel said, Has the Lord as much delight in offerings and burned offerings as in the doing of his orders? Truly, to do his pleasure is better than to make offerings, and to give ear to him than the fat of sheep.

  1499. 1Sa15:27 And when Samuel was turning round to go away, Saul took the skirt of his robe in his hand, and the cloth came away.

  1500. 1Sa15:35 And Samuel never saw Saul again till the day of his death; but Samuel was sorrowing for Saul: and it was no longer the Lord's pleasure for Saul to be king over Israel.

  1501. 1Sa16:1 And the Lord said to Samuel, How long will you go on sorrowing for Saul, seeing that I have put him from his place as king over Israel? Take oil in your vessel and go; I will send you to Jesse, the Beth-lehemite: for I have got a king for myself among his sons.

  1502. 1Sa16:2 And Samuel said, How is it possible for me to go? If Saul gets news of it he will put me to death. And the Lord said, Take a young cow with you and say, I have come to make an offering to the Lord.

  1503. 1Sa16:4 And Samuel did as the Lord said and came to Beth-lehem. And the responsible men of the town came out to him in fear and said, Do you come in peace?

  1504. 1Sa16:5 And he said, In peace: I have come to make an offering to the Lord: make yourselves clean and come with me to make the offering. And he made Jesse and his sons clean, and sent for them to be present at the offering.

  1505. 1Sa16:6 Now when they came, looking at Eliab, he said, Clearly the man of the Lord's selection is before him.

  1506. 1Sa16:11 Then Samuel said to Jesse, Are all your children here? And he said, There is still the youngest, and he is looking after the sheep. And Samuel said to Jesse, Send and make him come here: for we will not take our seats till he is here.

  1507. 1Sa16:22 And Saul sent to Jesse saying, Let David be with me, for he is pleasing to me.

  1508. 1Sa17:2 And Saul and the men of Israel came together and took up their position in the valley of Elah, and put their forces in order against the Philistines.

  1509. 1Sa17:8 He took up his position and in a loud voice said to the armies of Israel, Why have you come out to make war? Am I not a Philistine and you servants of Saul? Send out a man for yourselves and let him come down to me.

  1510. 1Sa17:15 Now David went to and from Saul, looking after his father's sheep at Beth-lehem.

  1511. 1Sa17:21 And Israel and the Philistines had put their forces in position, army against army.

  1512. 1Sa17:24 And all the men of Israel, when they saw him, went in flight, overcome with fear.

  1513. 1Sa17:26 And David said to the men near him, What will be done to the man who overcomes this Philistine and takes away the shame from Israel? for who is this Philistine, a man without circumcision, that he has put shame on the armies of the living God?

  1514. 1Sa17:27 And the people gave him this answer, So it will be done to the man who overcomes him.

  1515. 1Sa17:28 And Eliab, his oldest brother, hearing what David said to the men, was moved to wrath against David, and said, Why have you come here? Into whose care have you given that little flock of sheep in the waste land? I have knowledge of your pride and the evil of your heart, you have come down to see the fight.

  1516. 1Sa17:33 And Saul said to David, You are not able to go out against this Philistine and have a fight with him: for you are only a boy, and he has been a man of war from his earliest days.

  1517. 1Sa17:39 And David took Saul's sword and put the band round him over the metal coat, and was unable to go forward; for he was not used to them. Then David said to Saul, It is not possible for me to go out with these, for I am not used to them. So David took them off.

  1518. 1Sa17:48 Now when the Philistine made a move and came near to David, David quickly went at a run in the direction of the army, meeting the Philistine face to face.

  1519. 1Sa17:52 And the men of Israel and of Judah got up, and gave a cry, and went after the Philistines as far as Gath and the town doors of Ekron. And the wounded of the Philistines were falling down by the road from Shaaraim all the way to Gath and Ekron.

  1520. 1Sa17:53 Then the children of Israel came back from going after the Philistines, and took their goods from the tents.

  1521. 1Sa17:55 And when Saul saw David going out against the Philistine, he said to Abner, the captain of the army, Abner, whose son is this young man? And Abner said, On your life, O king, I have no idea.

  1522. 1Sa17:57 And when David was coming back after the destruction of the Philistine, Abner took him to Saul, with the head of the Philistine in his hand.

  1523. 1Sa18:2 And that day Saul took David and would not let him go back to his father's house.

  1524. 1Sa18:6 Now on their way, when David came back after the destruction of the Philistine, the women came out of all the towns of Israel, with songs and dances, meeting David with melody and joy and instruments of music.

  1525. 1Sa18:19 But when the time came to give Merab, Saul's daughter, to David, she was given to Adriel of Meholath.

  1526. 1Sa18:22 And Saul gave his servants orders saying, Have talk with David secretly and say to him, See how the king has delight in you, and how you are loved by all his servants: then be the king's son-in-law.

  1527. 1Sa18:24 And the servants of Saul gave him an account of what David had said.

  1528. 1Sa18:29 And Saul's fear of David became all the greater, and he went on hating him, day by day.

  1529. 1Sa18:30 Then the rulers of the Philistines went out to war: and whenever they went out, David did more wisely than all the other servants of Saul, so that his name became greatly honoured.

  1530. 1Sa19:2 And Jonathan said to David, Saul, my father, is purposing your death: so now, take care in the morning, and keep yourself safe in a secret place:

  1531. 1Sa19:11 Then in that night Saul sent men to David's house to keep watch on him so as to put him to death in the morning: and David's wife Michal said to him, If you do not go away to a safe place tonight you will be put to death in the morning.

  1532. 1Sa19:14 And when Saul sent men to take David, she said, He is ill.

  1533. 1Sa19:15 And Saul sent his men to see David, saying, Do not come back without him, take him in his bed, so that I may put him to death.

  1534. 1Sa19:19 And word was given to Saul that David was at Naioth in Ramah.

  1535. 1Sa19:20 And Saul sent men to take David; and when they saw the band of prophets at work, with Samuel in his place at their head, the spirit of God came on Saul's men, and they became like prophets.

  1536. 1Sa19:23 And he went on from there to Naioth in Ramah: and the spirit of God came on him, and he went on, acting like a prophet, till he came to Naioth in Ramah.

  1537. 1Sa20:3 But David took his oath again and said, Your father sees that I am dear to you; so he says to himself, Let Jonathan have no idea of this, for it will be a grief to him; but as the Lord is living, and as your soul is living, there is only a step between me and death.

  1538. 1Sa20:5 And David said to Jonathan, Tomorrow is the new moon, and I will not be seated with the king at his table: but let me go to a safe place in the country till the evening.

  1539. 1Sa20:6 And if your father takes note of the fact that I am away, say, David made a request to me for himself that he might go to Beth-lehem, to his town: for it is the time when his family make their offering year by year.

  1540. 1Sa20:7 If he says, It is well, your servant will be at peace: but if he is angry, then it will be clear to you that he has an evil purpose in mind against me.

  1541. 1Sa20:9 And Jonathan said, Do not have such a thought: for if I saw that my father was designing evil against you, would I not give you word of it?

  1542. 1Sa20:21 And I will send my boy to have a look for the arrow. And if I say to him, See, the arrow is on this side of you; take it up! then you may come; for there is peace for you and no evil, by the living Lord.

  1543. 1Sa20:24 So David went to a secret place in the country: and when the new moon came, the king took his place at the feast.

  1544. 1Sa20:42 And Jonathan said to David, Go in peace, for we two have taken an oath, in the name of the Lord, saying, The Lord will be between me and you, and between my seed and your seed for ever. Then David went away, and Jonathan went into the town.

  1545. 1Sa21:1 Then David came to Nob, to Ahimelech the priest: and Ahimelech was full of fear at meeting David, and said to him, Why are you by yourself, having no man with you?

  1546. 1Sa21:5 And David in answer said to the priest, Certainly women have been kept from us; and as has been done before when I have gone out the arms of the young men were made holy, even though it was a common journey; how much more today will their arms be made holy.

  1547. 1Sa21:6 So the priest gave him the holy bread: there was no other, only the holy bread which had been taken from before the Lord, so that new bread might be put in its place on the day when it was taken away.

  1548. 1Sa21:11 And the servants of Achish said to him, Is not this David, the king of the land? did they not make songs about him in their dances, saying, Saul has put to death thousands, and David tens of thousands?

  1549. 1Sa22:8 That all of you have made designs against me, and not one of you gave me word when my son made an agreement with the son of Jesse, and not one of you has pity for me or has made my eyes open to the fact that my servant has been moved by my son against me, as at this day?

  1550. 1Sa22:11 Then the king sent for Ahimelech the priest, the son of Ahitub, and for all the men of his father's family who were priests in Nob: and they all came to the king.

  1551. 1Sa22:13 And Saul said to him, Why have you made designs against me with the son of Jesse, giving him food and a sword and getting directions from the Lord for him, and helping him to take up arms against me, and to be on the watch to make a secret attack on me as he is doing now?

  1552. 1Sa22:15 Is this the first time I have got directions from God for him? Far be the thought! let the king make no such statement against his servant or my father's family, for your servant has no knowledge, great or small, of this thing.

  1553. 1Sa22:16 And the king said, You will certainly be put to death, Ahimelech, you and all your father's family.

  1554. 1Sa22:17 Then the king said to the runners who were waiting near him, Put the priests of the Lord to death; because they are on David's side, and having knowledge of his flight, did not give me word of it. But the king's servants would not put out their hands to make an attack on the Lord's priests.

  1555. 1Sa23:1 And they sent word to David, saying, The Philistines are fighting against Keilah and taking the grain from the grain-floors.

  1556. 1Sa23:2 So David, questioning the Lord, said, Am I to go and make an attack on these Philistines? And the Lord said to David, Go and make an attack on the Philistines so that Keilah may be kept from falling into their hands.

  1557. 1Sa23:4 Then David put the question to the Lord again, and the Lord answering said, Up! go down to Keilah; for I will give the Philistines into your hands.

  1558. 1Sa23:6 Now when Abiathar, the son of Ahimelech, went in flight to David, he came down to Keilah with the ephod in his hand.

  1559. 1Sa23:7 And news was given to Saul that David had come to Keilah. And Saul said, Now God has given him into my hands; for by going into a walled town with locked doors, he has let himself be shut in.

  1560. 1Sa23:8 And Saul sent for all the people to come to the fight, and go down to Keilah to make an attack on David and his men.

  1561. 1Sa23:10 Then David said, O Lord, the God of Israel, news has been given to your servant that it is Saul's purpose to come to Keilah and send destruction on the town because of me.

  1562. 1Sa23:13 Then David and his men, about six hundred of them, went out of Keilah, and got away wherever they were able to go. And Saul, hearing that David had got away from Keilah, did not go there.

  1563. 1Sa23:19 Then the Ziphites came up to Gibeah to see Saul, and said, Is not David living secretly among us in the strong places in Horesh, in the hill of Hachilah to the south of the waste land?

  1564. 1Sa23:20 So now, O king, have your soul's desire and come down, and we, for our part, will give him up into the king's hands.

  1565. 1Sa23:22 Go now, and take more steps, and see where he is living: for they say that he is expert in deceit.

  1566. 1Sa23:26 And Saul and his men went on one side of the mountain, and David and his men went on the other: and David's purpose was to get away as quickly as possible, for fear of Saul; for Saul and his men were making a circle round David and his men in order to take them.

  1567. 1Sa23:27 But a man came to Saul saying, Be quick and come; for the Philistines have made an attack on the land.

  1568. 1Sa23:28 So turning back from going after David, Saul went against the Philistines: so that place was named Sela-hammah-lekoth.

  1569. 1Sa24:2 Now when Saul came back from fighting the Philistines, news was given him that David was in the waste land of En-gedi.

  1570. 1Sa24:7 And David said to his men, Before the Lord, never let it be said that my hand was lifted up against my lord, the man of the Lord's selection, for the Lord's holy oil has been put on him.

  1571. 1Sa24:8 So with these words David kept his servants back, and did not let them make an attack on Saul. And Saul got up and went on his way.

  1572. 1Sa24:9 And after that David came out of the hollow rock, and crying after Saul said, My lord the king. And when Saul gave a look back, David went down on his face and gave him honour.

  1573. 1Sa24:10 And David said to Saul, Why do you give any attention to those who say that it is my desire to do you wrong?

  1574. 1Sa24:11 Look! you have seen today how the Lord gave you up into my hands even now in the hollow of the rocks: and some would have had me put you to death, but I had pity on you: for I said, Never will my hand be lifted up against my lord, who has been marked with the holy oil.

  1575. 1Sa24:12 And see, my father, see the skirt of your robe in my hand: for the fact that I took off the skirt of your robe and did not put you to death is witness that I have no evil purpose, and I have done you no wrong, though you are waiting for my life to take it.

  1576. 1Sa24:21 And now I am certain that you will be king, and that the kingdom of Israel will be made strong under your authority.

  1577. 1Sa25:2 Now there was a man in Maon whose business was in Carmel; he was a great man and had three thousand sheep and a thousand goats: and he was cutting the wool of his sheep in Carmel.

  1578. 1Sa25:14 But one of the young men said to Nabal's wife Abigail, David sent men from the waste land to say kind words to our master, and he gave them a rough answer.

  1579. 1Sa25:20 Now while she was going down under cover of the mountain on her ass, David and his men came down against her, and suddenly she came face to face with them.

  1580. 1Sa25:26 So now, my lord, by the living God and by your living soul, seeing that the Lord has kept you from the crime of blood and from taking into your hands the punishment for your wrongs, may all your haters, and those who would do evil to my lord, be like Nabal.

  1581. 1Sa25:28 And may the sin of your servant have forgiveness: for the Lord will certainly make your family strong, because my lord is fighting in the Lord's war; and no evil will be seen in you all your days.

  1582. 1Sa25:29 And though a man has taken up arms against you, putting your life in danger, still the soul of my lord will be kept safe among the band of the living with the Lord your God; and the souls of those who are against you he will send violently away from him, like stones from a bag.

  1583. 1Sa25:30 And when the Lord has done for my lord all those good things which he has said he will do for you, and has made you a ruler over Israel;

  1584. 1Sa25:32 And David said to Abigail, May the Lord, the God of Israel, be praised, who sent you to me today:

  1585. 1Sa25:33 A blessing on your good sense and on you, who have kept me today from the crime of blood and from taking into my hands the punishment for my wrongs.

  1586. 1Sa25:34 For truly, by the living Lord, the God of Israel, who has kept me from doing you evil, if you had not been so quick in coming to me and meeting me, by dawn there would not have been in Nabal's house so much as one male living.

  1587. 1Sa25:37 And in the morning, when the effect of the wine was gone, Nabal's wife gave him an account of all these things, and all the heart went out of him, and he became like stone.

  1588. 1Sa25:39 And David, hearing that Nabal was dead, said, May the Lord be praised, who has taken up my cause against Nabal for the shame which he put on me, and has kept back his servant from evil, and has sent on Nabal's head the reward of his evil-doing. And David sent word to Abigail, desiring to take her as his wife.

  1589. 1Sa25:40 And when David's servants came to Carmel, to Abigail, they said to her, David has sent us to you to take you to him as his wife.

  1590. 1Sa25:41 And she got up, and going down on her face to the earth, said, See, I am ready to be a servant-girl, washing the feet of the servants of my lord.

  1591. 1Sa26:1 And the Ziphites came to Saul at Gibeah, and said, Is not David waiting secretly near us in the hill of Hachilah, before the waste land?

  1592. 1Sa26:6 Then David said to Ahimelech the Hittite, and to Abishai, the son of Zeruiah, brother of Joab, Who will go down with me to the tents of Saul? And Abishai said, I will go down with you.

  1593. 1Sa26:11 Never will my hand be stretched out against the man marked with the holy oil; but take the spear which is by his head and the vessel of water, and let us go.

  1594. 1Sa26:14 And crying out to the people and to Abner, the son of Ner, David said, Have you no answer to give, Abner? Then Abner said, Who is that crying out to the king?

  1595. 1Sa26:19 Let my lord the king give ear now to the words of his servant. If it is the Lord who is moving you against me, let him take an offering: but if it is the children of men, may they be cursed before the Lord, for driving me out today and keeping me from my place in the heritage of the Lord, saying, Go, be the servant of other gods.

  1596. 1Sa26:23 And the Lord will give to every man the reward of his righteousness and his faith: because the Lord gave you into my hands today, and I would not put out my hand against the man who has been marked with the holy oil.

  1597. 1Sa26:25 Then Saul said to David, May a blessing be on you, David, my son; you will do great things and without doubt you will overcome. Then David went on his way, and Saul went back to his place.

  1598. 1Sa27:8 And David and his men went up and made attacks on the Geshurites and the Girzites and the Amalekites; for these were the people who were living in the land from Telam on the way to Shur, as far as Egypt.

  1599. 1Sa27:11 Not one living man or woman did David ever take back with him to Gath, fearing that they might give an account of what had taken place, and say, This is what David did, and so has he been doing all the time while he has been living in the land of the Philistines.

  1600. 1Sa28:1 Now in those days the Philistines got their forces together to make war on Israel. And Achish said to David, Certainly you and your men are to go out with me to the fight.

  1601. 1Sa28:10 And Saul made an oath to her by the Lord, saying, By the living Lord, no punishment will come to you for this.

  1602. 1Sa28:12 And the woman saw that it was Saul, and she gave a loud cry, and said to Saul, Why have you made use of deceit? for you are Saul.

  1603. 1Sa29:3 Then the rulers of the Philistines said, What are these Hebrews doing here? And Achish said to the rulers of the Philistines, Is this not David, the servant of Saul the king of Israel, who has been with me for a year or two, and I have never seen any wrong in him from the time when he came to me till now?

  1604. 1Sa29:5 Is this not David, who was named in their songs, when in the dance they said to one another, Saul has put to death thousands, and David tens of thousands?

  1605. 1Sa29:6 Then Achish sent for David and said to him, By the living Lord, you are upright, and everything you have done with me in the army has been pleasing to me: I have seen no evil in you from the day when you came to me till now: but still, the lords are not pleased with you.

  1606. 1Sa29:11 So David and his men got up early in the morning to go back to the land of the Philistines. And the Philistines went up to Jezreel.

  1607. 1Sa30:1 Now when David and his men came to Ziklag on the third day, the Amalekites had made an attack on the South and on Ziklag, and had overcome Ziklag and put it on fire;

  1608. 1Sa30:4 Then David and the people who were with him gave themselves up to weeping till they were able to go on weeping no longer.

  1609. 1Sa30:6 And David was greatly troubled; for the people were talking of stoning him, because their hearts were bitter, every man sorrowing for his sons and his daughters: but David made himself strong in the Lord his God.

  1610. 1Sa30:8 Then David, questioning the Lord, said, Am I to go after this band? will I be able to overtake them? And in answer he said, Go after them, for you will certainly overtake them, and get back everything.

  1611. 1Sa30:10 And David, with four hundred men, went on: but two hundred of them were overcome with weariness, and not able to go across the stream.

  1612. 1Sa30:21 And David came to the two hundred men, who because of weariness had not gone with him, but were waiting at the stream Besor: and they went out, meeting David and the people who were with him; and when they came near them, they said, How are you?

  1613. 1Sa30:26 And when David came to Ziklag, he sent some of the goods to the responsible men of Judah, and to his friends, saying, Here is an offering for you from the goods of those who were fighting against the Lord;

  1614. 2Sa1:2 On the third day a man came from Saul's tents, with his clothing out of order and earth on his head: and when he came to David, he went down on the earth and gave him honour.

  1615. 2Sa1:10 So I put my foot on him and gave him his death-blow, because I was certain that he would not go on living after his fall: and I took the crown from his head and the band from his arm, and I have them here for my lord.

  1616. 2Sa1:14 And David said to him, Had you no fear of stretching out your hand to put to death the one marked with the holy oil?

  1617. 2Sa1:16 And David said to him, May your blood be on your head; for your mouth has given witness against you, saying, I have put to death the man marked with the holy oil.

  1618. 2Sa2:1 Now after this, David, questioning the Lord, said, Am I to go up into any of the towns of Judah? And the Lord said to him, Go up. And David said, Where am I to go? And he said, To Hebron.

  1619. 2Sa2:4 And the men of Judah came there, and with the holy oil made David king over the people of Judah. And word came to David that it was the men of Jabesh-gilead who put Saul's body in its last resting-place.

  1620. 2Sa2:10 (Saul's son Ish-bosheth was forty years old when he became king over Israel, and he was ruler for two years.) But Judah was on the side of David.

  1621. 2Sa2:19 Asahel went running after Abner, not turning to the right or to the left.

  1622. 2Sa2:21 And Abner said, Then go to the right or to the left and put your hands on one of the fighting-men and take his arms. But Asahel would not be turned away from going after Abner.

  1623. 2Sa2:22 Then again Abner said to Asahel, Go to one side, do not keep on coming after me: why will you make me put an end to you? for then I will be shamed before your brother Joab.

  1624. 2Sa2:23 But still he did not go to one side: so Abner gave him a back blow in the stomach with his spear, so that the spear came out at his back; and he went down on the earth, wounded to death: and all those who came to the place where Asahel went down dead, came to a stop.

  1625. 2Sa2:26 Then crying out to Joab, Abner said, Are fighting and destruction to go on for ever? do you not see that the end will only be bitter? how long will it be before you send the people back and make them give up attacking their countrymen?

  1626. 2Sa3:11 And so great was Ish-bosheth's fear of Abner that he was not able to say a word in answer.

  1627. 2Sa3:12 And Abner sent men to David at Hebron, saying, Make an agreement with me, and I will give you my support in getting all Israel on your side.

  1628. 2Sa3:13 And he said, It is well; I will make an agreement with you, but on one condition, which is, that when you come before me, Saul's daughter Michal is to come with you; till she comes you will not see my face.

  1629. 2Sa3:14 And David sent men to Saul's son Ish-bosheth, saying, Give me back Michal, my wife, whom I made mine for the price of the private parts of a hundred Philistines.

  1630. 2Sa3:16 And her husband went with her as far as Bahurim, weeping while he went. Then Abner said to him, Go back. And he went back.

  1631. 2Sa3:17 Then Abner had a talk with the chief men of Israel, saying, In the past it was your desire to make David your king: so now, do it:

  1632. 2Sa3:18 For the Lord has said of David, By the hand of my servant David I will make my people Israel safe from the Philistines, and from all who are against them.

  1633. 2Sa3:23 When Joab and his men came, news was given them that Abner, the son of Ner, had come to the king, who had let him go away again in peace.

  1634. 2Sa3:25 Is it not clear to you that Abner, the son of Ner, came with deceit to get knowledge of your going out and your coming in and of all you are doing?

  1635. 2Sa3:34 Your hands were free, your feet were not chained: like the downfall of a man before evil men, so was your fall. And the weeping of the people over him went on again.

  1636. 2Sa3:35 And the people came to make David take food, while it was still day, but David with an oath said, May God's punishment be on me if I take a taste of bread or any other thing till the sun has gone down!

  1637. 2Sa4:4 Now Jonathan, Saul's son, had a son whose feet were damaged. He was five years old when news of the death of Saul and Jonathan came from Jezreel, and the woman who took care of him took him up and went in flight: and while she was getting him away as quickly as she was able, he had a fall and his feet were damaged. His name was Mephibosheth.

  1638. 2Sa4:10 When one came to me with the news of Saul's death, in the belief that it would be good news, I took him and put him to death in Ziklag, which was the reward I gave him for his news:

  1639. 2Sa5:1 Then all the tribes of Israel came to David in Hebron and said, Truly, we are your bone and your flesh.

  1640. 2Sa5:4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he was king for forty years,

  1641. 2Sa5:6 And the king and his men went to Jerusalem against the Jebusites, the people of the land: and they said to David, You will not come in here, but the blind and the feeble-footed will keep you out; for they said, David will not be able to come in here.

  1642. 2Sa5:10 And David became greater and greater; for the Lord, the God of armies, was with him.

  1643. 2Sa5:13 And David took more women and wives in Jerusalem, after he had come from Hebron: and he had more sons and daughters.

  1644. 2Sa5:19 And David, desiring directions from the Lord, said, Am I to go up against the Philistines? will you give them up into my hands? And the Lord said, Go up, for I will certainly give up the Philistines into your hands.

  1645. 2Sa5:22 And the Philistines came up again, and went in every direction in the valley of Rephaim.

  1646. 2Sa5:24 Then at the sound of footsteps in the tops of the trees, go forward quickly, for the Lord has gone out before you to overcome the army of the Philistines.

  1647. 2Sa5:25 And David did as the Lord had said; and he overcame the Philistines, attacking them from Gibeon to near Gezer.

  1648. 2Sa6:12 And they said to King David, The blessing of the Lord is on the family of Obed-edom and on all he has, because of the ark of God. And David went and took the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom into the town of David with joy.

  1649. 2Sa6:20 Then David came back to give a blessing to his family. And Michal, Saul's daughter, came out to him and said, How full of glory was the king of Israel today, who let himself be seen uncovered by his servant-girls like a foolish person uncovering himself without shame!

  1650. 2Sa7:4 Now that night the word of the Lord came to Nathan, saying,

  1651. 2Sa7:5 Go and say to my servant David, The Lord says, Are you to be the builder of a house, a living-place for me?

  1652. 2Sa7:7 In all the places where I went with all the children of Israel, did I ever say to any of the judges of Israel, to whom I gave the care of my people Israel, Why have you not made me a house of cedar?

  1653. 2Sa7:23 And what other nation in the earth, like your people Israel, did a god go out to take for himself, to be his people, and to make a name for himself, and to do great and strange things for them, driving out a nation and its gods from before his people?

  1654. 2Sa7:26 And let your name be made great for ever, and let men say, The Lord of armies is God over Israel: and let the family of David your servant be made strong before you!

  1655. 2Sa7:27 For you, O Lord of armies, the God of Israel, have clearly said to your servant, I will make you the head of a family of kings: and so it has come into your servant's heart to make this prayer to you.

  1656. 2Sa8:3 And David overcame Hadadezer, the son of Rehob, king of Zobah, when he went to make his power seen by the River.

  1657. 2Sa8:5 And when the Aramaeans of Damascus came to the help of Hadadezer, king of Zobah, David put to the sword twenty-two thousand of the Aramaeans.

  1658. 2Sa8:10 He sent his son Hadoram to David, with words of peace and blessing, because he had overcome Hadadezer in the fight, for Hadadezer had wars with Tou; and Hadoram took with him vessels of silver and gold and brass:

  1659. 2Sa8:13 And David got great honour for himself, when he came back, by the destruction of Edom in the valley of Salt, to the number of eighteen thousand men.

  1660. 2Sa9:7 And David said to him, Have no fear: for truly I will be good to you, because of your father Jonathan, and I will give back to you all the land which was Saul's; and you will have a place at my table at all times.

  1661. 2Sa10:3 But the chiefs of the children of Ammon said to Hanun their lord, Does it seem to you that David is honouring your father by sending comforters to you? has he not sent his servants to go through the town and make secret observation of it, and overcome it?

  1662. 2Sa10:5 When David had news of it, he sent men out with the purpose of meeting them on their way, for the men were greatly shamed: and the king said, Go to Jericho till your hair is long again, and then come back.

  1663. 2Sa10:9 Now when Joab saw that their forces were in position against him in front and at his back, he took the best of the men of Israel and put them in line against the Aramaeans;

  1664. 2Sa10:10 And the rest of the people he put in position against the children of Ammon, with Abishai, his brother, at their head.

  1665. 2Sa10:17 And word of this was given to David: and he got all Israel together and went over Jordan and came to Helam. And the Aramaeans put their forces in position against David, and made an attack on him.

  1666. 2Sa11:1 Now in the spring, at the time when kings go out to war, David sent Joab and his servants and all Israel with him; and they made waste the land of the children of Ammon, and took up their position before Rabbah, shutting it in. But David was still at Jerusalem.

  1667. 2Sa11:10 And when word was given to David that Uriah had not gone down to his house, David said to Uriah, Have you not come from a journey? why did you not go down to your house?

  1668. 2Sa11:11 And Uriah said to David, Israel and Judah with the ark are living in tents, and my lord Joab and the other servants of my lord are sleeping in the open field; and am I to go to my house and take food and drink, and go to bed with my wife? By the living Lord, and by the life of your soul, I will not do such a thing.

  1669. 2Sa11:13 And when David sent for him, he took meat and drink with him, and David made him the worse for drink: and when evening came, he went to rest on his bed with the servants of his lord, but he did not go down to his house.

  1670. 2Sa11:15 And in the letter he said, Take care to put Uriah in the very front of the line, where the fighting is most violent, and go back from him, so that he may be overcome and put to death.

  1671. 2Sa11:16 So while Joab was watching the town, he put Uriah in the place where it was clear to him the best fighters were.

  1672. 2Sa11:19 And he gave orders to the man who took the news, saying, After you have given the king all the news about the war,

  1673. 2Sa12:4 Now a traveller came to the house of the man of wealth, but he would not take anything from his flock or his herd to make a meal for the traveller who had come to him, but he took the poor man's lamb and made it ready for the man who had come.

  1674. 2Sa12:9 Why then have you had no respect for the word of the Lord, doing what is evil in his eyes? You have put Uriah the Hittite to death with the sword, and have taken his wife to be your wife; you have put him to death with the sword of the children of Ammon.

  1675. 2Sa12:14 But still, because you have had no respect for the Lord, death will certainly overtake the child who has newly come to birth.

  1676. 2Sa13:2 And he was so deeply in love that he became ill because of his sister Tamar; for she was a virgin, and so it seemed hard to Amnon to do anything to her.

  1677. 2Sa13:5 Then Jonadab said to him, Go to your bed, and let it seem that you are ill: and when your father comes to see you, say to him, Let my sister Tamar come and give me bread, and get the food ready before my eyes, so that I may see it and take it from her hand.

  1678. 2Sa13:6 So Amnon went to bed and made himself seem ill: and when the king came to see him, Amnon said to the king, Please let my sister Tamar come and make me one or two cakes before my eyes, so that I may take food from her hand.

  1679. 2Sa13:7 Then David sent to the house for Tamar and said, Go now to your brother Amnon's house and get a meal for him.

  1680. 2Sa13:9 And she took the cooking-pot, and put the cakes before him, but he would not take them. And Amnon said, Let everyone go away from me. So they all went out.

  1681. 2Sa13:11 And when she took them to give them to him, he put his arms round her and said, Come to bed, my sister.

  1682. 2Sa13:14 But he would not give attention to what she said: but being stronger than she, he took her by force, and had connection with her.

  1683. 2Sa13:16 And she said to him, Not so, my brother, for this great wrong in sending me away is worse than what you did to me before. But he gave no attention to her.

  1684. 2Sa13:19 And Tamar, in her grief, put dust on her head; and she put her hand on her head and went away crying loudly.

  1685. 2Sa13:25 And the king said to Absalom, No, my son, let us not all go, or the number will be over-great for you. And he made his request again, but he would not go, but he gave him his blessing.

  1686. 2Sa13:28 Now Absalom had given orders to his servants, saying, Now take note when Amnon's heart is glad with wine; and when I say to you, Make an attack on Amnon, then put him to death without fear: have I not given you orders? be strong and without fear.

  1687. 2Sa13:30 Now while they were on their way, news was given to David that Absalom had put to death all the sons of the king and that not one of them was still living.

  1688. 2Sa13:33 So now, let not my lord the king take this thing to heart, with the idea that all the king's sons are dead: for only Amnon is dead.

  1689. 2Sa13:39 And the heart of David was wasted with desire for Absalom: for he was comforted for the death of Amnon.

  1690. 2Sa14:7 And now all the family is turned against me, your servant, saying, Give up him who was the cause of his brother's death, so that we may put him to death in payment for the life of his brother, whose life he took; and we will put an end to the one who will get the heritage: so they will put out my last burning coal, and my husband will have no name or offspring on the face of the earth.

  1691. 2Sa14:10 And the king said, If anyone says anything to you, make him come to me, and he will do you no more damage.

  1692. 2Sa14:14 For death comes to us all, and we are like water drained out on the earth, which it is not possible to take up again; and God will not take away the life of the man whose purpose is that he who has been sent away may not be completely cut off from him.

  1693. 2Sa14:17 Then your servant said, May the word of my lord the king give me peace! for my lord the king is as the angel of God in his hearing of good and bad: and may the Lord your God be with you!

  1694. 2Sa14:20 This he did, hoping that the face of this business might be changed: and my lord is wise, with the wisdom of the angel of God, having knowledge of everything on earth.

  1695. 2Sa14:29 Then Absalom sent for Joab to send him to the king, but he would not come to him: and he sent again a second time, but he would not come.

  1696. 2Sa14:32 And Absalom's answer was, See, I sent to you saying, Come here, so that I may send you to the king to say, Why have I come back from Geshur? it would be better for me to be there still: let me now see the king's face, and if there is any sin in me, let him put me to death.

  1697. 2Sa15:2 And Absalom got up early, morning after morning, and took his place at the side of the public meeting-place: and when any man had a cause which had to come to the king to be judged, then Absalom, crying out to him, said, What is your town? and he would say, Your servant is of one of the tribes of Israel.

  1698. 2Sa15:5 And if any man came near to give him honour, he took him by the hand and gave him a kiss.

  1699. 2Sa15:8 For while I was living in Geshur in Aram, your servant made an oath, saying, If ever the Lord lets me come back to Jerusalem, I will give him worship in Hebron.

  1700. 2Sa15:10 But Absalom at the same time sent watchers through all the tribes of Israel to say, At the sound of the horn you are to say, Absalom is king in Hebron.

  1701. 2Sa15:12 And Absalom sent for Ahithophel the Gilonite, one of David's helpers, from Giloh his town, while he was making the offerings. And the design against David became strong, for more and more people were joined to Absalom.

  1702. 2Sa15:13 And one came to David and said, The hearts of the men of Israel have gone after Absalom.

  1703. 2Sa15:14 And David said to all his servants who were with him at Jerusalem, Come, let us go in flight, or not one of us will be safe from Absalom: let us go without loss of time, or he will overtake us quickly and send evil on us, and put the town to the sword.

  1704. 2Sa15:16 So the king went out, taking with him all the people of his house, but for ten of his women, who were to take care of the house.

  1705. 2Sa15:20 It was only yesterday you came to us; why then am I to make you go up and down with us? for I have to go where I may; go back then, and take your countrymen with you, and may the Lord's mercy and good faith be with you.

  1706. 2Sa15:24 Then Zadok came, and Abiathar, and with them the ark of God's agreement: and they put down the ark of God, till all the people from the town had gone by.

  1707. 2Sa15:28 See, I will be waiting at the way across the river, in the waste land, till I get news from you.

  1708. 2Sa15:30 And David went up the slopes of the Mount of Olives weeping all the way, with his head covered and no shoes on his feet: and all the people who were with him, covering their heads, went up weeping.

  1709. 2Sa15:31 And word came to David, saying, Ahithophel is among those who are joined to Absalom. And David said, O Lord, let the wisdom of Ahithophel be made foolish.

  1710. 2Sa15:32 Now when David had come to the top of the slope, where they gave worship to God, Hushai the Archite came to him in great grief with dust on his head:

  1711. 2Sa16:1 And when David had gone a little way past the top of the slope, Ziba, the servant of Mephibosheth, came to him, with two asses on which were two hundred cakes of bread and a hundred stems of dry grapes and a hundred summer fruits and a skin of wine.

  1712. 2Sa16:2 And David said to Ziba, What is your reason for this? And Ziba said, The asses are for the use of the king's people, and the bread and the fruit are food for the young men; and the wine is for drink for those who are overcome by weariness in the waste land.

  1713. 2Sa16:5 And when King David came to Bahurim, a man of Saul's family named Shimei, the son of Gera, came out from there, calling curses after him.

  1714. 2Sa16:13 So David and his men went on their way: and Shimei went by the hillside parallel with them, cursing and sending stones and dust at him.

  1715. 2Sa16:21 And Ahithophel said to Absalom, Go in to your father's women who are here looking after his house; then all Israel will have the news that you are hated by your father, and the hands of your supporters will be strong.

  1716. 2Sa17:3 And I will make all the people come back to you as a bride comes back to her husband: it is the life of only one man you are going after; so all the people will be at peace.

  1717. 2Sa17:6 And when Hushai came, Absalom said to him, This is what Ahithophel has said: are we to do as he says? if not, what is your suggestion?

  1718. 2Sa17:9 But he will certainly have taken cover now in some hole or secret place; and if some of our people, at the first attack, are overcome, then any hearing of it will say, There is destruction among the people who are on Absalom's side.

  1719. 2Sa17:17 Now Jonathan and Ahimaaz were waiting by En-rogel; and a servant-girl went from time to time and gave them news and they went with the news to King David, for it was not wise for them to let themselves be seen coming into the town.

  1720. 2Sa17:21 Then after the servants had gone away, they came up out of the water-hole and went to give King David the news; and they said, Get up and go quickly over the water, for such and such are Ahithophel's designs against you.

  1721. 2Sa17:27 Now when David had come to Mahanaim, Shobi, the son of Nahash of Rabbah, the Ammonite, and Machir, the son of Ammiel of Lo-debar, and Barzillai the Gileadite of Rogelim,

  1722. 2Sa17:29 And honey and butter and sheep and milk-cheeses, for David and his people: for they said, This people is in the waste land, needing food and drink and rest.

  1723. 2Sa18:2 And David sent the people out, a third of them under the orders of Joab, and a third under the orders of Abishai, son of Zeruiah, Joab's brother, and a third under Ittai the Gittite. And the king said to the people, And I myself will certainly go out with you.

  1724. 2Sa18:3 But the people said, It is better for you not to go out: for if we are put to flight, they will not give a thought to us, and if death overtakes half of us, it will be nothing to them: but you are of more value than ten thousand of us: so it is better for you to be ready to come to our help from this town.

  1725. 2Sa18:5 And the king gave orders to Joab and Abishai and Ittai, saying, Because of me, be gentle to the young man Absalom. And this order about Absalom was given in the hearing of all the people.

  1726. 2Sa18:6 So the people went out into the field against Israel, and the fight took place in the woods of Ephraim.

  1727. 2Sa18:8 And the fighting went on over all the face of the country: and the woods were responsible for more deaths than the sword.

  1728. 2Sa18:11 And Joab said to the man who had given him the news, If you saw this, why did you not put your sword through him, and I would have given you ten bits of silver and a band for your robe?

  1729. 2Sa18:12 And the man said to Joab, Even if you gave me a thousand bits of silver, I would not put out my hand against the king's son: for in our hearing the king gave orders to you and Abishai and Ittai, saying, Take care that the young man Absalom is not touched.

  1730. 2Sa18:16 And Joab had the horn sounded, and the people came back from going after Israel, for Joab kept them back.

  1731. 2Sa18:25 And the watchman gave news of it to the king. And the king said, If he is coming by himself, then he has news. And the man was travelling quickly, and came near.

  1732. 2Sa18:29 And the king said, Is it well with the young man Absalom? And Ahimaaz said in answer, When Joab sent me, your servant, I saw a great outcry going on, but I had no knowledge of what it was.

  1733. 2Sa18:33 Then the king was much moved, and went up into the room over the door, weeping, and saying, O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! if only my life might have been given for yours, O Absalom, my son, my son!

  1734. 2Sa19:2 And the salvation of that day was changed to sorrow for all the people: for it was said to the people, The king is in bitter grief for his son.

  1735. 2Sa19:3 And the people made their way back to the town quietly and secretly, as those who are shamed go secretly when they go in flight from the war.

  1736. 2Sa19:6 For your haters, it seems, are dear to you, and your friends are hated. For you have made it clear that captains and servants are nothing to you: and now I see that if Absalom was living and we had all been dead today, it would have been right in your eyes.

  1737. 2Sa19:8 Then the king got up and took his seat near the town-door. And word was given to all the people that the king was in the public place: and all the people came before the king. Now all the men of Israel had gone back in flight to their tents.

  1738. 2Sa19:9 And through all the tribes of Israel the people were having arguments, saying, The king made us safe from the hands of those who were against us and made us free from the hands of the Philistines; and now he has gone in flight from the land, because of Absalom.

  1739. 2Sa19:11 And King David sent word to Zadok and Abiathar, the priests, Say to the responsible men of Judah, Why are you the last to take steps to get the king back to his house?

  1740. 2Sa19:15 So the king came back, and came as far as Jordan. And Judah came to Gilgal, meeting the king there, to take him back with them over Jordan.

  1741. 2Sa19:16 And Shimei, the son of Gera, the Benjamite from Bahurim, got up quickly and went down with the men of Judah for the purpose of meeting King David;

  1742. 2Sa19:18 And kept going across the river to take the people of the king's house over, and to do whatever was desired by the king. And Shimei, the son of Gera, went down on his face in the dust before the king, when he was about to go over Jordan,

  1743. 2Sa19:19 And said to him, Let me not be judged as a sinner in your eyes, O my lord, and do not keep in mind the wrong I did on the day when my lord the king went out of Jerusalem, or take it to heart.

  1744. 2Sa19:20 For your servant is conscious of his sin: and so, as you see, I have come today, the first of all the sons of Joseph, for the purpose of meeting my lord the king.

  1745. 2Sa19:24 And Mephibosheth, the son of Saul's son, came down for the purpose of meeting the king; his feet had not been cared for or his hair cut or his clothing washed from the day when the king went away till the day when he came back in peace.

  1746. 2Sa19:25 Now when he had come from Jerusalem to see the king, the king said to him, Why did you not come with me, Mephibosheth?

  1747. 2Sa19:28 For all my father's family were only dead men before my lord the king: and still you put your servant among those whose place is at the king's table. What right then have I to say anything more to the king?

  1748. 2Sa19:42 And all the men of Judah gave this answer to the men of Israel, Because the king is our near relation: why then are you angry about this? have we taken any of the king's food, or has he given us any offering?

  1749. 2Sa20:3 And David came to his house at Jerusalem: and the king took the ten women to whom he had given the care of the house, and had them shut up, and gave them the necessaries of life, but did not go near them. So they were shut up till the day of their death, living as widows.

  1750. 2Sa20:7 So there went after Abishai, Joab and the Cherethites and the Pelethites and all the fighting-men; they went out of Jerusalem to overtake Sheba, the son of Bichri.

  1751. 2Sa20:9 And Joab said to Amasa, Is it well, my brother? And with his right hand he took him by the hair of his chin to give him a kiss.

  1752. 2Sa20:13 When he had been taken off the road, all the people went on after Joab in search of Sheba, the son of Bichri.

  1753. 2Sa20:18 Then she said, In the old days, there was a saying, Let them put the question in Abel and in Dan, saying, Has what was ordered by men of good faith in Israel ever come to an end?

  1754. 2Sa21:10 And Rizpah, the daughter of Aiah, took haircloth, placing it on the rock as a bed for herself, from the start of the grain-cutting till rain came down on them from heaven; and she did not let the birds of the air come near them by day, or the beasts of the field by night.

  1755. 2Sa21:17 But Abishai, the son of Zeruiah, came to his help, and, turning on the Philistine, gave him his death-blow. Then David's men took an oath, and said, Never again are you to go out with us to the fight, so that you may not put out the light of Israel.

  1756. 2Sa22:36 You have given me the breastplate of your salvation, and your mercy has made me great.

  1757. 2Sa22:45 Men of other countries will, with false hearts, put themselves under my authority: from the time when my name comes to their ears, they will be ruled by me.

  1758. 2Sa23:7 But anyone touching them has to be armed with iron and the rod of a spear; and they will be burned with fire, every one of them.

  1759. 2Sa23:8 These are the names of David's men of war: Ishbaal the Hachmonite, chief of the three; his axe was lifted up against eight hundred put to death at one time.

  1760. 2Sa23:16 And the three men, forcing their way through the Philistine army, got water from the water-hole of Beth-lehem, by the doorway into the town, and took it back to David: but he would not take it, but, draining it out, made an offering of it to the Lord.

  1761. 2Sa23:17 And he said, Far be it from me, O Lord, to do this; how may I take as my drink the life-blood of men who have put their lives in danger? So he would not take it. These things did the three great men of war.

  1762. 2Sa24:1 Again the wrath of the Lord was burning against Israel, and moving David against them, he said, Go, take the number of Israel and Judah.

  1763. 2Sa24:4 But the king's order was stronger than Joab and the captains of the army. And Joab and the captains of the army went out from the king, to take the number of the children of Israel.

  1764. 2Sa24:11 And David got up in the morning; now the word of the Lord had come to the prophet Gad, David's seer, saying,

  1765. 2Sa24:12 Go and say to David, The Lord says, Three things are offered to you: say which of them you will have, and I will do it to you.

  1766. 2Sa24:13 So Gad came to David, and gave him word of this and said to him, Are there to be three years when there is not enough food in your land? or will you go in flight from your haters for three months, while they go after you? or will you have three days of violent disease in your land? take thought and say what answer I am to give to him who sent me.

  1767. 2Sa24:17 And when David saw the angel who was causing the destruction of the people, he said to the Lord, Truly, the sin is mine; I have done wrong: but these are only sheep; what have they done? let your hand be against me and against my family.

  1768. 2Sa24:21 And Araunah said, Why has my lord the king come to his servant? And David said, To give you a price for your grain-floor, so that I may put up an altar to the Lord, and the disease may be stopped among the people.

  1769. 2Sa24:24 And the king said to Araunah, No, but I will give you a price for it; I will not give to the Lord my God burned offerings for which I have given nothing. So David got the grain-floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.

  1770. 1Ki1:5 Then Adonijah, the son of Haggith, lifting himself up in pride, said, I will become king; and he made ready his carriages of war and his horsemen, with fifty runners to go before him.

  1771. 1Ki1:6 Now all his life his father had never gone against him or said to him, Why have you done so? and he was a very good-looking man, and younger than Absalom.

  1772. 1Ki1:11 Then Nathan said to Bath-sheba, the mother of Solomon, Has it not come to your ears that Adonijah, the son of Haggith, has made himself king without the knowledge of David our lord?

  1773. 1Ki1:13 Come now, go to King David and say to him, Did you not, O my lord, take an oath to me, your servant, saying, Truly Solomon your son will be king after me, seated on the seat of my kingdom? why then is Adonijah acting as king?

  1774. 1Ki1:21 For as things are, it will come about, when my lord the king is sleeping with his fathers, that I and Solomon my son will be made outlaws.

  1775. 1Ki1:23 And they said to the king, Here is Nathan the prophet. And when he came in before the king, he went down on his face on the earth.

  1776. 1Ki1:30 As I took an oath to you by the Lord, the God of Israel, saying, Certainly Solomon your son will become king after me, seated on my seat in my place; so will I do this day.

  1777. 1Ki1:41 And it came to the ears of Adonijah and all the guests who were with him, when their meal was ended. And Joab, hearing the sound of the horn, said, What is the reason of this noise as if the town was worked up?

  1778. 1Ki1:47 And the king's servants came to our lord King David, blessing him and saying, May God make the name of Solomon better than your name, and the seat of his authority greater than your seat; and the king was bent low in worship on his bed.

  1779. 1Ki1:51 And they gave Solomon word of it, saying, See, Adonijah goes in such fear of King Solomon, that he has put his hands on the horns of the altar, saying, Let King Solomon first give me his oath that he will not put his servant to death with the sword.

  1780. 1Ki2:1 Now the time of David's death came near; and he gave orders to Solomon his son, saying,

  1781. 1Ki2:3 And keep the orders of the Lord your God, walking in his ways, keeping his laws and his orders and his rules and his words, as they are recorded in the law of Moses; so that you may do well in all you do and wherever you go,

  1782. 1Ki2:4 So that the Lord may give effect to what he said of me, If your children give attention to their ways, living uprightly before me with all their heart and their soul, you will never be without a man to be king in Israel.

  1783. 1Ki2:7 But be good to the sons of Barzillai the Gileadite, and let them be guests at your table; for so they came to me when I went in flight from Absalom your brother.

  1784. 1Ki2:8 Now you have with you Shimei, the son of Gera the Benjamite of Bahurim, who put a bitter curse on me on the day when I went to Mahanaim; but he came down to see me at Jordan, and I gave him my oath by the Lord, saying, I will not put you to death by the sword.

  1785. 1Ki2:13 Then Adonijah, the son of Haggith, came to Bath-sheba, the mother of Solomon. And she said, Come you in peace? And he said, Yes, in peace.

  1786. 1Ki2:15 And he said, You saw how the kingdom was mine, and all Israel had the idea that I would be their king; but now the kingdom is turned about, and has become my brother's, for it was given to him by the Lord.

  1787. 1Ki2:19 So Bath-sheba went to King Solomon to have talk with him on Adonijah's account. And the king got up to come to her, and went down low to the earth before her; then he took his place on the king's seat and had a seat made ready for the king's mother and she took her place at his right hand.

  1788. 1Ki2:23 Then King Solomon took an oath by the Lord, saying, May God's punishment be on me if Adonijah does not give payment for these words with his life.

  1789. 1Ki2:29 And they said to King Solomon, Joab has gone in flight to the Tent of the Lord and is by the altar. Then Solomon sent Benaiah, the son of Jehoiada, saying, Go, make an attack on him.

  1790. 1Ki2:30 And Benaiah came to the Tent of the Lord and said to him, The king says, Come out. And he said, No; but let death come to me here. And Benaiah went back to the king and gave him word of the answer which Joab had given.

  1791. 1Ki2:37 For be certain that on the day when you go out and go over the stream Kidron, death will overtake you: and your blood will be on your head.

  1792. 1Ki2:39 But after three years, two of the servants of Shimei went in flight to Achish, son of Maacah, king of Gath. And word was given to Shimei that his servants had gone to Gath.

  1793. 1Ki2:42 Then the king sent for Shimei, and said to him, Did I not make you take an oath by the Lord, protesting to you and saying, Be certain that on the day when you go out from here, wherever you go, death will overtake you? and you said to me, Very well!

  1794. 1Ki3:1 Solomon became the son-in-law of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and took Pharaoh's daughter as his wife, keeping her in the town of David, till the house he was building for himself, and the house of the Lord and the wall round Jerusalem, were complete.

  1795. 1Ki3:3 And Solomon, in his love for the Lord, kept the laws of David his father; but he made offerings and let them go up in smoke on the high places.

  1796. 1Ki3:4 And the king went to Gibeon to make an offering there, because that was the chief high place: it was Solomon's way to make a thousand burned offerings on that altar.

  1797. 1Ki3:7 And now, O Lord my God, you have made your servant king in the place of David my father; and I am only a young boy, with no knowledge of how to go out or come in.

  1798. 1Ki3:9 Give your servant, then, a wise heart for judging your people, able to see what is good and what evil; for who is able to be the judge of this great people?

  1799. 1Ki3:11 And God said to him, Because your request is for this thing, and not for long life for yourself or for wealth or for the destruction of your haters, but for wisdom to be a judge of causes;

  1800. 1Ki3:14 And if you go on in my ways, keeping my laws and my orders as your father David did, I will give you a long life.

  1801. 1Ki3:18 And three days after the birth of my child, this woman had a child: we were together, no other-person was with us in the house but we two only.

  1802. 1Ki3:28 And news of this decision which the king had made went through all Israel; and they had fear of the king, for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him to give decisions.

  1803. 1Ki4:34 People came from every nation to give ear to the wisdom of Solomon, from all the kings of the earth who had word of his wisdom.

  1804. 1Ki5:2 And Solomon sent back word to Hiram, saying,

  1805. 1Ki5:3 You have knowledge that David my father was not able to make a house for the name of the Lord his God, because of the wars which were round him on every side, till the Lord put all those who were against him under his feet.

  1806. 1Ki5:5 And so it is my purpose to make a house for the name of the Lord my God, as he said to David my father, Your son, whom I will make king in your place, will be the builder of a house for my name.

  1807. 1Ki5:6 So now, will you have cedar-trees from Lebanon cut down for me, and my servants will be with your servants; and I will give you payment for your servants at whatever rate you say; for it is common knowledge that we have no such wood-cutters among us as the men of Zidon.

  1808. 1Ki5:7 And these words of Solomon made Hiram glad, and he said, Now may the Lord be praised who has given to David a wise son to be king over this great people.

  1809. 1Ki5:8 Then Hiram sent to Solomon, saying; The words you sent have been given to me: I will do all your desire in the question of cedar-wood and cypress-wood.

  1810. 1Ki5:9 My men will take them down from Lebanon to the sea, where I will have them corded together to go by sea to whatever place you say, and I will have them cut up there so that you may take them away; as for payment, it will be enough if you give me food for my people.

  1811. 1Ki5:18 Solomon's builders and Hiram's builders did the work of cutting them, and put edges on them, and got the wood and the stone ready for the building of the house.

  1812. 1Ki6:1 In the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel came out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year that Solomon was king of Israel, in the month Ziv, which is the second month, the building of the Lord's house was started.

  1813. 1Ki6:6 The lowest line of them being five cubits wide, the middle six cubits wide and the third seven cubits; for there was a space all round the outside walls of the house so that the boards supporting the rooms did not have to be fixed in the walls of the house.

  1814. 1Ki6:11 (And the word of the Lord came to Solomon, saying,

  1815. 1Ki6:12 About this house which you are building: if you will keep my laws and give effect to my decisions and be guided by my rules, I will give effect to my word which I gave to David your father.

  1816. 1Ki6:19 And he made ready an inmost room in the middle of the house, in which to put the ark of the agreement of the Lord.

  1817. 1Ki6:22 Plates of gold were put all through the house till it was covered completely (and the altar in the inmost room was all covered with gold).

  1818. 1Ki7:14 He was the son of a widow of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in brass; he was full of wisdom and knowledge and an expert worker in brass. He came to King Solomon and did all his work for him.

  1819. 1Ki7:16 And he made the two crowns to be put on the tops of the pillars, of brass made soft in the fire; the crowns were five cubits high.

  1820. 1Ki7:40 And Hiram made the pots and spades and the basins. So Hiram came to the end of all the work he did for King Solomon in the house of the Lord:

  1821. 1Ki8:9 There was nothing in the ark but the two flat stones which Moses put there at Horeb, where the Lord made an agreement with the children of Israel when they came out of the land of Egypt.

  1822. 1Ki8:10 Now when the priests had come out of the holy place, the house of the Lord was full of the cloud,

  1823. 1Ki8:11 So that the priests were not able to keep their places to do their work because of the cloud, for the house of the Lord was full of the glory of the Lord.

  1824. 1Ki8:12 Then Solomon said, O Lord, to the sun you have given the heaven for a living-place, but your living-place was not seen by men;

  1825. 1Ki8:13 So I have made for you a living-place, a house in which you may be for ever present.

  1826. 1Ki8:15 And he said, Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, who himself gave his word to David my father, and with his strong hand has made his word come true, saying,

  1827. 1Ki8:16 From the day when I took my people Israel out of Egypt, no town in all the tribes of Israel has been marked out by me for the building of a house for the resting-place of my name; but I made selection of David to be king over my people Israel.

  1828. 1Ki8:17 Now it was in the heart of David my father to put up a house for the name of the Lord, the God of Israel.

  1829. 1Ki8:18 But the Lord said to David my father, You did well to have in your heart the desire to make a house for my name;

  1830. 1Ki8:25 So now, O Lord, the God of Israel, let your word to your servant David, my father, come true, when you said, You will never be without a man to take his place on the seat of the kingdom of Israel before me, if only your children give attention to their ways, walking before me as you have done.

  1831. 1Ki8:28 Still, let your heart be turned to the prayer of your servant, O Lord God, and to his prayer for grace; give ear to the cry and the prayer which your servant sends up to you this day;

  1832. 1Ki8:29 That your eyes may be open to this house night and day, to this place of which you have said, My name will be there; hearing the prayer which your servant may make, turning to this place.

  1833. 1Ki8:30 Give ear to the prayers of your servant, and the prayers of your people Israel, when they make their prayers, turning to this place; give ear in heaven your living-place, and hearing, have mercy.

  1834. 1Ki8:32 Then let your ear be open in heaven, and be the judge of your servants, giving your decision against the wrongdoer, so that punishment for his sins may come on his head; and, by your decision, keeping from evil him who has done no wrong.

  1835. 1Ki8:39 Give ear in heaven your living-place, acting in mercy; and give to every man whose secret heart is open to you, the reward of all his ways; for you, and you only, have knowledge of the hearts of all the children of men:

  1836. 1Ki8:43 Give ear in heaven your living-place, and give him his desire, whatever it may be; so that all the peoples of the earth may have knowledge of your name, worshipping you as do your people Israel, and that they may see that this house which I have put up is truly named by your name.

  1837. 1Ki8:47 And if they take thought, in the land where they are prisoners, and are turned again to you, crying out in prayer to you in that land, and saying, We are sinners, we have done wrong, we have done evil;

  1838. 1Ki8:49 Then give ear to their prayer and to their cry in heaven your living-place, and see right done to them;

  1839. 1Ki8:52 Let your eyes be open to your servant's prayer for grace and to the prayer of your people Israel, hearing them when their cry comes to you.

  1840. 1Ki8:54 Then Solomon, after making all these prayers and requests for grace to the Lord, got up from his knees before the altar of the Lord, where his hands had been stretched out in prayer to heaven;

  1841. 1Ki8:55 And, getting on his feet, he gave a blessing to all the men of Israel, saying with a loud voice,

  1842. 1Ki8:58 Turning our hearts to himself, guiding us to go in all his ways, to keep his orders and his laws and his decisions, which he gave to our fathers.

  1843. 1Ki8:59 And may these my words, the words of my prayer to the Lord, be before the Lord our God day and night, so that he may see right done to his servant and to his people Israel, day by day as we have need.

  1844. 1Ki8:60 So that all the peoples of the earth may see that the Lord is God, and there is no other.

  1845. 1Ki8:61 Then let your hearts be without sin before the Lord our God, walking in his laws and keeping his orders as at this day.

  1846. 1Ki8:65 So Solomon and all Israel with him, a very great meeting, (for the people had come together from the way into Hamath to the river of Egypt,) kept the feast at that time before the Lord our God, for two weeks, even fourteen days.

  1847. 1Ki9:1 Now when Solomon came to the end of building the house of the Lord and the king's house, and all Solomon's desires, which he had in mind were effected;

  1848. 1Ki9:3 And the Lord said to him, Your prayers and your requests for grace have come to my ears: I have made holy this house which you have made, and I have put my name there for ever; my eyes and my heart will be there at all times.

  1849. 1Ki9:4 As for you, if you will go on your way before me, as David your father did, uprightly and with a true heart, doing what I have given you orders to do, keeping my laws and my decisions;

  1850. 1Ki9:5 Then I will make the seat of your rule over Israel certain for ever, as I gave my word to David your father, saying, You will never be without a man to be king in Israel.

  1851. 1Ki9:6 But if you are turned from my ways, you or your children, and do not keep my orders and my laws which I have put before you, but go and make yourselves servants to other gods and give them worship:

  1852. 1Ki9:12 But when Hiram came from Tyre to see the towns which Solomon had given him, he was not pleased with them.

  1853. 1Ki9:15 Now, this was the way of Solomon's system of forced work for the building of the Lord's house and of the king's house, and the Millo and the wall of Jerusalem and Megiddo and Gezer. ...

  1854. 1Ki9:19 And all the store-towns and the towns which Solomon had for his war-carriages and for his horsemen, and everything which it was his pleasure to put up in Jerusalem and in Lebanon and in all the land under his rule.

  1855. 1Ki10:9 May the Lord your God be praised, whose pleasure it was to put you on the seat of the kingdom of Israel; because the Lord's love for Israel is eternal, he has made you king, to be their judge in righteousness.

  1856. 1Ki10:19 There were six steps going up to it, and the top of it was round at the back, there were arms on the two sides of the seat, and two lions by the side of the arms;

  1857. 1Ki10:24 And from all over the earth they came to see Solomon and to give ear to his wisdom, which God had put in his heart.

  1858. 1Ki11:10 And had given him orders about this very thing, that he was not to go after other gods; but he did not keep the orders of the Lord.

  1859. 1Ki11:11 So the Lord said to Solomon, Because you have done this, and have not kept my agreement and my laws, which I gave you, I will take the kingdom away from you by force and will give it to your servant.

  1860. 1Ki11:15 And when David had sent destruction on Edom, and Joab, the captain of the army, had gone to put the dead into the earth, and had put to death every male in Edom;

  1861. 1Ki11:17 Hadad, being still a young boy, went in flight to Egypt, with certain Edomites, servants of his father;

  1862. 1Ki11:22 But Pharaoh said to him, What have you been short of while you have been with me, that you are desiring to go back to your country? And he said, Nothing; but even so, send me back.

  1863. 1Ki11:24 He got some men together and made himself captain of a band of outlaws; and went to Damascus and became king there.

  1864. 1Ki11:33 Because they are turned away from me to the worship of Ashtoreth, the goddess of the Zidonians, and Chemosh, the god of Moab, and Milcom, the god of the Ammonites; they have not been walking in my ways or doing what is right in my eyes or keeping my laws and my decisions as his father David did.

  1865. 1Ki11:36 And one tribe I will give to his son, so that David my servant may have a light for ever burning before me in Jerusalem, the town which I have made mine to put my name there.

  1866. 1Ki11:38 And if you give attention to the orders I give you, walking in my ways and doing what is right in my eyes and keeping my laws and my orders as David my servant did; then I will be with you, building up for you a safe house, as I did for David, and I will give Israel to you.

  1867. 1Ki12:2 And, hearing of it, Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, who was still in Egypt, where he had gone in flight from Solomon, and was living there, came back to his town Zeredah, in the hill-country of Ephraim;

  1868. 1Ki12:3 And all the men of Israel came to Rehoboam and said,

  1869. 1Ki12:6 Then King Rehoboam took the opinion of the old men who had been with Solomon his father when he was living, and said, In your opinion, what answer am I to give to this people?

  1870. 1Ki12:7 And they said to him, If you will be a servant to this people today, caring for them and giving them a gentle answer, then they will be your servants for ever.

  1871. 1Ki12:9 And said to them, What is your opinion? What answer are we to give to this people who have said to me, Make less the weight of the yoke which your father put on us?

  1872. 1Ki12:10 And the young men of his generation said to him, This is the answer to give to the people who came to you saying, Your father put a hard yoke on us; will you make it less? say to them, My little finger is thicker than my father's body;

  1873. 1Ki12:12 So all the people came to Rehoboam on the third day, as the king had given orders, saying, Come back to me the third day.

  1874. 1Ki12:14 But giving them the answer put forward by the young men, saying, My father made your yoke hard, but I will make it harder; my father gave you punishment with whips, but I will give it with snakes.

  1875. 1Ki12:16 And when all Israel saw that the king would give no attention to them, the people in answer said to the king, What part have we in David? what is our heritage in the son of Jesse? to your tents, O Israel; now see to your people, David. So Israel went away to their tents.

  1876. 1Ki12:18 Then King Rehoboam sent Adoniram, the overseer of the forced work; and he was stoned to death by all Israel. And King Rehoboam went quickly and got into his carriage to go in flight to Jerusalem.

  1877. 1Ki12:20 Now when all Israel had news that Jeroboam had come back, they sent for him to come before the meeting of the people, and made him king over Israel: not one of them was joined to the family of David but only the tribe of Judah.

  1878. 1Ki12:22 But the word of God came to Shemaiah, the man of God, saying,

  1879. 1Ki12:23 Say to Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, king of Judah, and to all the men of Judah and Benjamin and the rest of the people:

  1880. 1Ki12:24 The Lord has said, You are not to go to war against your brothers, the children of Israel; go back, every man to his house, because this thing is my purpose. So they gave ear to the word of the Lord, and went back, as the Lord had said.

  1881. 1Ki12:27 If the people go up to make offerings in the house of the Lord at Jerusalem, their heart will be turned again to their lord, to Rehoboam, king of Judah; and they will put me to death and go back to Rehoboam, king of Judah.

  1882. 1Ki12:28 So after taking thought the king made two oxen of gold; and he said to the people, You have been going up to Jerusalem long enough; see! these are your gods, O Israel, who took you out of the land of Egypt.

  1883. 1Ki13:3 The same day he gave them a sign, saying, This is the sign which the Lord has given: See, the altar will be broken and the burned waste on it overturned.

  1884. 1Ki13:4 Then the king, hearing the man of God crying out against the altar at Beth-el, put out his hand from the altar, saying, Take him prisoner. And his hand, stretched out against him, became dead, and he had no power of pulling it back.

  1885. 1Ki13:9 For so I was ordered by the word of the Lord, who said, You are not to take food or a drink of water, and you are not to go back the way you came.

  1886. 1Ki13:16 But he said, I may not go back with you or go into your house; and I will not take food or a drink of water with you in this place;

  1887. 1Ki13:17 For the Lord said to me, You are not to take food or water there, or go back again by the way you came.

  1888. 1Ki13:18 Then he said to him, I am a prophet like you; and an angel said to me by the word of the Lord, Take him back with you and give him food and water. But he said false words to him.

  1889. 1Ki13:21 And crying out to the man of God who came from Judah, he said, The Lord says, Because you have gone against the voice of the Lord, and have not done as you were ordered by the Lord,

  1890. 1Ki13:23 Now after the meal he made ready the ass for him, for the prophet whom he had taken back.

  1891. 1Ki13:27 And he said to his sons, Make ready the ass for me. And they did so.

  1892. 1Ki13:29 Then the prophet took up the body of the man of God and put it on the ass and took it back; and he came to the town to put the body to rest with weeping.

  1893. 1Ki13:31 And when he had put it to rest, he said to his sons, When I am dead, then you are to put my body into the earth with the body of this man of God, and put me by his bones so that my bones may be kept safe with his bones.

  1894. 1Ki14:4 So Jeroboam's wife did so, and got up and went to Shiloh and came to the house of Ahijah. Now Ahijah was unable to see, because he was very old.

  1895. 1Ki14:5 And the Lord had said to Ahijah, The wife of Jeroboam is coming to get news from you about her son, who is ill; give her such and such an answer; for she will make herself seem to be another woman.

  1896. 1Ki14:6 Then Ahijah, hearing the sound of her footsteps coming in at the door, said, Come in, O wife of Jeroboam; why do you make yourself seem like another? for I am sent to you with bitter news.

  1897. 1Ki14:8 And took the kingdom away by force from the seed of David and gave it to you, you have not been like my servant David, who kept my orders, and was true to me with all his heart, doing only what was right in my eyes.

  1898. 1Ki14:9 But you have done evil more than any before you, and have made for yourself other gods, and images of metal, moving me to wrath, and turning your back on me.

  1899. 1Ki14:10 So I will send evil on the line of Jeroboam, cutting off from his family every male child, those who are shut up and those who go free in Israel; the family of Jeroboam will be brushed away like a man brushing away waste till it is all gone.

  1900. 1Ki14:12 Up, then! go back to your house; and in the hour when your feet go into the town, the death of the child will take place.

  1901. 1Ki14:21 And Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, was king in Judah. Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he became king, and he was king for seventeen years in Jerusalem, the town which the Lord had made his out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there; his mother's name was Naamah, an Ammonite woman.

  1902. 1Ki14:28 And whenever the king went into the house of the Lord, the armed men went with him taking the body-covers, and then took them back to their room.

  1903. 1Ki15:17 And Baasha, king of Israel, went up against Judah, building Ramah, so that no one was able to go out or in to Asa, king of Judah.

  1904. 1Ki15:18 Then Asa took all the silver and gold which was still stored in the Lord's house, and in the king's house, and sent them, in the care of his servants, to Ben-hadad, son of Tabrimmon, son of Rezon, king of Aram, at Damascus, saying,

  1905. 1Ki15:21 And Baasha, hearing of it, put a stop to the building of Ramah, and was living in Tirzah.

  1906. 1Ki15:29 And straight away when he became king, he sent destruction on all the offspring of Jeroboam; there was not one living person of all the family of Jeroboam whom he did not put to death, so the word of the Lord, which he said by his servant Ahijah the Shilonite, came about;

  1907. 1Ki16:1 And the word of the Lord came to Jehu, son of Hanani, protesting against Baasha and saying,

  1908. 1Ki16:11 And straight away when he became king and took his place on the seat of the kingdom, he put to death all the family of Baasha: not one male child of his relations or his friends kept his life.

  1909. 1Ki16:16 And news came to the people in the tents that Zimri had made a secret design and had put the king to death: so all Israel made Omri, the captain of the army, king that day in the tents.

  1910. 1Ki16:18 And when Zimri saw that the town was taken, he went into the inner room of the king's house, and burning the house over his head, came to his end,

  1911. 1Ki16:19 Because of his sin in doing evil in the eyes of the Lord, in going in the way of Jeroboam and in his sin which he made Israel do.

  1912. 1Ki16:31 And as if copying the evil ways of Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, was a small thing for him, he took as his wife Jezebel, daughter of Ethbaal, king of Zidon, and became a servant and worshipper of Baal.

  1913. 1Ki16:33 And Ahab made an image of Asherah and did more than all the kings of Israel before him to make the Lord, the God of Israel, angry.

  1914. 1Ki17:2 Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying,

  1915. 1Ki17:8 Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying,

  1916. 1Ki17:11 And when she was going to get it, he said to her, And get me with it a small bit of bread.

  1917. 1Ki17:14 For this is the word of the Lord, the God of Israel: The store of meal will not come to an end, and the bottle will never be without oil, till the day when the Lord sends rain on the earth.

  1918. 1Ki18:1 Now after a long time, the word of the Lord came to Elijah, in the third year, saying, Go and let Ahab see you, so that I may send rain on the earth.

  1919. 1Ki18:6 So they went through all the country, covering it between them; Ahab went in one direction by himself, and Obadiah went in another by himself.

  1920. 1Ki18:7 And while Obadiah was on his way, he came face to face with Elijah; and seeing who it was, he went down on his face and said, Is it you, my lord Elijah?

  1921. 1Ki18:13 Has my lord not had word of what I did when Jezebel was putting the Lord's prophets to death? how I kept a hundred of them in a secret hole in the rock, fifty at a time, and gave them bread and water?

  1922. 1Ki18:16 So Obadiah went to Ahab and gave him the news; and Ahab went to see Elijah.

  1923. 1Ki18:17 And when he saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, Is it you, you troubler of Israel?

  1924. 1Ki18:18 Then he said in answer, I have not been troubling Israel, but you and your family; because, turning away from the orders of the Lord, you have gone after the Baals.

  1925. 1Ki18:26 So they took the ox which was given them, and made it ready, crying out to Baal from morning till the middle of the day, and saying, O Baal, give ear to us. But there was no voice and no answer. And they were jumping up and down before the altar they had made.

  1926. 1Ki18:28 So they gave loud cries, cutting themselves with knives and swords, as was their way, till the blood came streaming out all over them.

  1927. 1Ki18:29 And from the middle of the day they went on with their prayers till the time of the offering; but there was no voice, or any answer, or any who gave attention to them.

  1928. 1Ki18:31 And Elijah took twelve stones, the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the Lord had said, Israel will be your name:

  1929. 1Ki18:36 Then at the time of the offering, Elijah the prophet came near and said, O Lord, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Israel, let it be seen this day that you are God in Israel, and that I am your servant, and that I have done all these things by your order.

  1930. 1Ki18:42 So Ahab went up to have food and drink, while Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he went down on the earth, putting his face between his knees.

  1931. 1Ki18:46 And the hand of the Lord was on Elijah; and he made himself strong, and went running before Ahab till they came to Jezreel.

  1932. 1Ki19:2 Then Jezebel sent a servant to Elijah, saying, May the gods' punishment be on me if I do not make your life like the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time.

  1933. 1Ki19:4 While he himself went a day's journey into the waste land, and took a seat under a broom-plant, desiring for himself only death; for he said, It is enough: now, O Lord, take away my life, for I am no better than my fathers.

  1934. 1Ki19:10 And he said, I have been burning for the honour of the Lord, the God of armies; for the children of Israel have not kept your agreement; they have made destruction of your altars, and have put your prophets to death with the sword: till I, even I, am the only one living; and now they are attempting to take away my life.

  1935. 1Ki19:13 And Elijah, hearing it, went out, covering his face with his robe, and took his place in the opening of the hole. And there a voice came to him saying, What are you doing here, Elijah?

  1936. 1Ki19:14 And he said, I have been burning for the honour of the Lord, the God of armies; for the children of Israel have not kept your agreement; they have had your altars broken down, and have put your prophets to death with the sword: till I, even I, am the only one living; and now they are attempting to take away my life.

  1937. 1Ki20:5 Then the representatives came back again, and said, These are the words of Ben-hadad: I sent to you saying, Give up to me your silver and your gold, your wives and your children;

  1938. 1Ki20:9 So he said to the representatives of Ben-hadad, Say to my lord the king, All the orders you sent the first time I will do; but this thing I may not do. And the representatives went back with this answer.

  1939. 1Ki20:12 Now when this answer was given to Ben-hadad, he was drinking with the kings in the tents, and he said to his men, Take up your positions. So they put themselves in position for attacking the town.

  1940. 1Ki20:17 And the servants of the chiefs who were over the divisions of the land went forward first; and when Ben-hadad sent out, they gave him the news, saying, Men have come out from Samaria.

  1941. 1Ki20:27 And the children of Israel got themselves together, and food was made ready and they went against them; the tents of the children of Israel were like two little flocks of goats before them, but all the country was full of the Aramaeans.

  1942. 1Ki20:37 Then he came across another man, and said, Give me a wound. And the man gave him a blow wounding him.

  1943. 1Ki21:2 And Ahab said to Naboth, Give me your vine-garden so that I may have it for a garden of sweet plants, for it is near my house; and let me give you a better vine-garden in exchange, or, if it seems good to you, let me give you its value in money.

  1944. 1Ki21:3 But Naboth said to Ahab, By the Lord, far be it from me to give you the heritage of my fathers.

  1945. 1Ki21:9 And in the letter she said, Let a time of public sorrow be fixed, and put Naboth at the head of the people;

  1946. 1Ki21:10 And get two good-for-nothing persons to come before him and give witness that he has been cursing God and the king. Then take him out and have him stoned to death.

  1947. 1Ki21:13 And the two good-for-nothing persons came in and took their seats before him and gave witness against Naboth, in front of the people, saying, Naboth has been cursing God and the king. Then they took him outside the town and had him stoned to death.

  1948. 1Ki21:14 And they sent word to Jezebel, saying, Naboth has been stoned and is dead.

  1949. 1Ki21:15 Then Jezebel, hearing that Naboth had been stoned and was dead, said to Ahab, Get up and take as your heritage the vine-garden of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he would not give you for money, for Naboth is no longer living but is dead.

  1950. 1Ki21:16 So Ahab, hearing that Naboth was dead, went down to the vine-garden of Naboth the Jezreelite to take it as his heritage.

  1951. 1Ki21:17 And the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying,

  1952. 1Ki21:18 Go down to Ahab, king of Israel, in Samaria; see, he is in the vine-garden of Naboth the Jezreelite, where he has gone to take it as his heritage.

  1953. 1Ki21:19 Say to him, The Lord says, Have you put a man to death and taken his heritage? Then say to him, The Lord says, In the place where dogs have been drinking the blood of Naboth, there will your blood become the drink of dogs.

  1954. 1Ki21:20 And Ahab said to Elijah, Have you come face to face with me, O my hater? And he said, I have come to you because you have given yourself up to do evil in the eyes of the Lord.

  1955. 1Ki21:23 And of Jezebel the Lord said, Jezebel will become food for dogs in the heritage of Jezreel.

  1956. 1Ki21:25 (There was no one like Ahab, who gave himself up to do evil in the eyes of the Lord, moved to it by Jezebel his wife.

  1957. 1Ki21:26 He did a very disgusting thing in going after false gods, doing all the things the Amorites did, whom the Lord sent out before the children of Israel.)

  1958. 1Ki21:27 Hearing these words, Ahab, in great grief, put haircloth on his flesh and went without food, sleeping in haircloth, and going about quietly.

  1959. 1Ki21:28 Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying,

  1960. 1Ki22:3 And the king of Israel said to his servants, Do you not see that Ramoth-gilead is ours? and we are doing nothing to get it back from the hands of the king of Aram.

  1961. 1Ki22:8 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, There is still one man by whom we may get directions from the Lord, Micaiah, son of Imlah; but I have no love for him, for he is a prophet of evil to me and not of good. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so.

  1962. 1Ki22:12 And all the prophets said the same thing, saying, Go up to Ramoth-gilead, and it will go well for you, for the Lord will give it into the hands of the king.

  1963. 1Ki22:13 Now the servant who had gone to get Micaiah said to him, See now, all the prophets with one voice are saying good things to the king; so let your words be like theirs and say good things.

  1964. 1Ki22:27 And say, It is the king's order that this man is to be put in prison and given prison food till I come again in peace.

  1965. 1Ki22:28 And Micaiah said, If you come back at all in peace, the Lord has not sent his word by me.

  1966. 1Ki22:30 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, I will make a change in my clothing, so that I do not seem to be the king, and will go into the fight; but do you put on your robes. So the king of Israel made a change in his dress and went into the fight.

  1967. 1Ki22:31 Now the king of Aram had given orders to the thirty-two captains of his war-carriages, saying, Make no attack on small or great, but only on the king of Israel.

  1968. 1Ki22:32 So when the captains of the war-carriages saw Jehoshaphat, they said, Truly, this is the king of Israel; and turning against him, they came round him, but Jehoshaphat gave a cry.

  1969. 1Ki22:33 And when the captains of the war-carriages saw that he was not the king of Israel, they went back from going after him.

  1970. 1Ki22:36 And about sundown a cry went up from all parts of the army, saying, Let every man go back to his town and his country, for the king is dead.

  1971. 1Ki22:42 Jehoshaphat was thirty-five years old when he became king, and he was king for twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Azubah, the daughter of Shilhi.

  1972. 1Ki22:43 He did as Asa his father had done, not turning away from it, but doing what was right in the eyes of the Lord; but the high places were not taken away: the people went on making offerings and burning them in the high places.

  1973. 1Ki22:48 And the representative of King Jehoshaphat made a Tarshish-ship to go to Ophir for gold, but it did not go, because it was broken at Ezion-geber.

  1974. 2Ki1:3 But the angel of the Lord said to Elijah the Tishbite, Go now, and, meeting the men sent by the king of Samaria, say to them, Is it because there is no God in Israel, that you are going to get directions from Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron?

  1975. 2Ki1:4 Give ear then to the words of the Lord: You will never again get down from the bed on to which you have gone up, but death will certainly come to you. Then Elijah went away.

  1976. 2Ki1:6 And they said to him, On our way we had a meeting with a man who said, Go back to the king who sent you and say to him, The Lord says, Is it because there is no God in Israel that you send to put a question to Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron? For this reason, you will not come down from the bed on to which you have gone up, but death will certainly come to you.

  1977. 2Ki1:7 And he said to them, What sort of a man was it who came and said these words to you?

  1978. 2Ki1:16 And he said to him, This is the word of the Lord: Because you sent men to put a question to Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, for this reason you will never again get down from the bed on to which you have gone up, but death will certainly come to you.

  1979. 2Ki2:9 And when they had come to the other side, Elijah said to Elisha, Say what you would have me do for you before I am taken from you. And Elisha said, Be pleased to let a special measure of your spirit be on me.

  1980. 2Ki2:10 And he said, You have made a hard request: still, if you see me when I am taken from you, you will get your desire; but if not, it will not be so.

  1981. 2Ki2:11 And while they went on their way, going on talking together, suddenly there were carriages and horses of fire separating them from one another and Elijah went up to heaven in a great wind.

  1982. 2Ki2:15 And when the sons of the prophets who were facing him at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah is resting on Elisha. And they came out to him, and went down on the earth before him.

  1983. 2Ki2:17 But when they kept on requesting him, he was shamed and said, Send, then. So they sent fifty men; but after searching for three days, they came back without having seen him.

  1984. 2Ki3:7 And he sent to Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, saying, The king of Moab has got free from my authority: will you go with me to make war on Moab? And he said, I will go with you: I am as you are, my people as your people, and my horses as your horses.

  1985. 2Ki3:10 And the king of Israel said, Here is trouble: for the Lord has got these three kings together to give them into the hands of Moab.

  1986. 2Ki3:13 But Elisha said to the king of Israel, What have I to do with you? go to the prophets of your father and your mother. And the king of Israel said, No; for the Lord has got these three kings together to give them up into the hands of Moab.

  1987. 2Ki3:16 And he said, The Lord says, I will make this valley full of water-holes.

  1988. 2Ki3:20 Now in the morning, about the time when the offering was made, they saw water flowing from the direction of Edom till the country was full of water.

  1989. 2Ki4:1 Now a certain woman, the wife of one of the sons of the prophets, came crying to Elisha and said, Your servant my husband is dead; and to your knowledge he was a worshipper of the Lord; but now, the creditor has come to take my two children as servants in payment of his debt.

  1990. 2Ki4:6 And when all the vessels were full, she said to her son, Get me another vessel. And he said, There are no more. And the flow of oil was stopped.

  1991. 2Ki4:8 Now there came a day when Elisha went to Shunem, and there was a woman of high position living there, who made him come in and have a meal with her. And after that, every time he went by, he went into her house for a meal.

  1992. 2Ki4:10 So let us make a little room on the wall; and put a bed there for him, and a table and a seat and a light; so that when he comes to us, he will be able to go in there.

  1993. 2Ki4:13 And he said to him, Now say to her, See, you have taken all this trouble for us; what is to be done for you? will you have any request made for you to the king or the captain of the army? But she said, I am living among my people.

  1994. 2Ki4:14 So he said, What then is to be done for her? And Gehazi made answer, Still there is this, she has no son and her husband is old.

  1995. 2Ki4:24 Then she made the ass ready and said to her servant, Keep driving on; do not make a stop without orders from me.

  1996. 2Ki4:25 So she went, and came to Mount Carmel, to the man of God. And when the man of God saw her coming in his direction, he said to Gehazi, his servant, See, there is the Shunammite;

  1997. 2Ki4:26 Go quickly to her, and on meeting her say to her, Are you well? and your husband and the child, are they well? And she said in answer, All is well.

  1998. 2Ki4:27 And when she came to where the man of God was on the hill, she put her hands round his feet; and Gehazi came near with the purpose of pushing her away; but the man of God said, Let her be, for her soul is bitter in her; and the Lord has kept it secret from me, and has not given me word of it.

  1999. 2Ki4:31 And Gehazi went on before them and put the stick on the child's face; but there was no voice, and no one gave attention. So he went back, and meeting him gave him the news, saying, The child is not awake.

  2000. 2Ki4:40 Then they gave the men soup from the pot. And while they were drinking the soup, they gave a cry, and said, O man of God, there is death in the pot; and they were not able to take any more food.

  2001. 2Ki4:43 But his servant said, How am I to put this before a hundred men? But he said, Give it to the people for food; for the Lord says, There will be food for them and some over.

  2002. 2Ki5:4 And someone went and said to his lord, This is what the girl from the land of Israel says.

  2003. 2Ki5:6 And he took the letter to the king of Israel, in which the king of Aram had said, See, I have sent my servant Naaman to you to be made well, for he is a leper.

  2004. 2Ki5:7 But the king of Israel, after reading the letter, was greatly troubled and said, Am I God, to give death and life? why does this man send a leper to me to be made well? is it not clear that he is looking for a cause of war?

  2005. 2Ki5:8 Now Elisha, the man of God, hearing that the king of Israel had done this, sent to the king, saying, Why are you troubled? send the man to me, so that he may see that there is a prophet in Israel.

  2006. 2Ki5:10 And Elisha sent a servant to him, saying, Go to Jordan, and after washing seven times in its waters your flesh will be well again and you will be clean.

  2007. 2Ki5:11 But Naaman was angry and went away and said, I had the idea that he would come out to see such an important person as I am, and make prayer to the Lord his God, and with a wave of his hand over the place make the leper well.

  2008. 2Ki5:16 But he said, By the life of the Lord whose servant I am, I will take nothing from you. And he did his best to make him take it but he would not.

  2009. 2Ki5:18 But may your servant have the Lord's forgiveness for this one thing: when my master goes into the house of Rimmon for worship there, supported on my arm, and my head is bent in the house of Rimmon; when his head is bent in the house of Rimmon, may your servant have the Lord's forgiveness for this thing.

  2010. 2Ki5:20 But Gehazi, the servant of Elisha, the man of God, said, Now my master has taken nothing from Naaman, this Aramaean, of what he would have given him: by the living Lord, I will go after him and get something from him.

  2011. 2Ki5:21 So Gehazi went after Naaman. And when Naaman saw him running after him, he got down from his carriage and went back to him and said, Is all well?

  2012. 2Ki5:22 And he said, All is well: but my master has sent me, saying, Even now, two young men of the sons of the prophets have come to me from the hill-country of Ephraim; will you give me a talent of silver and two changes of clothing for them?

  2013. 2Ki5:26 And he said to him, Did not my heart go with you, when the man got down from his carriage and went back to you? Is this a time for getting money, and clothing, and olive-gardens and vine-gardens, and sheep and oxen, and men-servants and women-servants?

  2014. 2Ki6:2 So let us go to Jordan, and let everyone get to work cutting boards, and we will make a living-place for ourselves there. And he said to them, Go, then.

  2015. 2Ki6:8 At that time the king of Aram was making war against Israel; and he had a meeting with the chiefs of his army and said, I will be waiting in secret in some named place.

  2016. 2Ki6:9 And the man of God sent to the king of Israel, saying, Take care to keep away from that place, for the Aramaeans are waiting there in secret.

  2017. 2Ki6:13 Then he said, Go and see where he is, so that I may send and get him. And news came to him that he was in Dothan.

  2018. 2Ki6:15 Now the servant of the man of God, having got up early and gone out, saw an army with horses and carriages of war all round the town. And the servant said to him, O my master, what are we to do?

  2019. 2Ki6:20 And when they had come into Samaria, Elisha said, Lord, let the eyes of these men be open so that they may see. And the Lord made their eyes open, and they saw that they were in the middle of Samaria.

  2020. 2Ki6:21 And the king of Israel, when he saw them, said to Elisha, My father, am I to put them to the sword?

  2021. 2Ki6:23 So he made ready a great feast for them, and when they had had food and drink, he sent them away and they went back to their master. And no more bands of Aramaeans came into the land of Israel.

  2022. 2Ki6:26 And when the king of Israel was going by on the wall, a woman came crying out to him, and said, Help! my lord king.

  2023. 2Ki6:30 Then the king, hearing what the woman said, took his robes in his hands, violently parting them; and, while he was walking on the wall, the people, looking, saw that under his robe he had haircloth on his flesh.

  2024. 2Ki7:5 So in the half light they got up to go to the tents of Aram; but when they came to the outer line of tents, there was no one there.

  2025. 2Ki7:6 For the Lord had made the sound of carriages and horses, and the noise of a great army, come to the ears of the Aramaeans, so that they said to one another, Truly, the king of Israel has got the kings of the Hittites and of the Egyptians for a price to make an attack on us.

  2026. 2Ki7:10 So they came in, and, crying out to the door-keepers of the town, they gave them the news, saying, We came to the tents of the Aramaeans, and there was no one there and no voice of man, only the horses and the asses in their places, and the tents as they were.

  2027. 2Ki7:12 Then the king got up in the night and said to his servants, This is my idea of what the Aramaeans have done to us. They have knowledge that we are without food; and so they have gone out of their tents, and are waiting secretly in the open country, saying, When they come out of the town, we will take them living and get into the town.

  2028. 2Ki7:14 So they took two horsemen; and the king sent them after the army of the Aramaeans, saying, Go and see.

  2029. 2Ki7:15 And they went after them as far as Jordan; and all the road was covered with clothing and vessels dropped by the Aramaeans in their flight. So those who were sent went back and gave the news to the king.

  2030. 2Ki7:17 And the king gave authority to that captain, on whose arm he was supported, to have control over the doorway into the town; but he was crushed to death there under the feet of the people, as the man of God had said when the king went down to him.

  2031. 2Ki7:18 So the words of the man of God came true, which he said to the king: Two measures of barley will be offered for the price of a shekel and a measure of good meal for a shekel, tomorrow about this time in the market-place of Samaria.

  2032. 2Ki8:1 Now Elisha had said to the woman whose son he had given back to life, Go now, with all the people of your house, and get a living-place for yourselves wherever you are able; for by the word of the Lord, there will be great need of food in the land; and this will go on for seven years.

  2033. 2Ki8:3 And when the seven years were ended, the woman came back from the land of the Philistines and went to the king with a request for her house and her land.

  2034. 2Ki8:4 Now the king was talking with Gehazi, the servant of the man of God, saying, Now, give me an account of all the great things Elisha has done.

  2035. 2Ki8:6 And in answer to the king's questions, the woman gave him all the story. So the king gave orders to one of his unsexed servants, saying, Give her back all her property, and all the produce of her fields from the day when she went away from the land up till now.

  2036. 2Ki8:7 And Elisha came to Damascus; and Ben-hadad, king of Aram, was ill; and they said to him, The man of God has come.

  2037. 2Ki8:8 Then the king said to Hazael, Take an offering with you, and go to see the man of God and get directions from the Lord by him, saying, Am I going to get better from my disease?

  2038. 2Ki8:9 So Hazael went to see him, taking with him forty camels with offerings on their backs of every sort of good thing from Damascus; and when he came before him, he said, Your son Ben-hadad, king of Aram, has sent me to you, saying, Will I get better from this disease?

  2039. 2Ki8:10 And Elisha said to him, Go, say to him, You will certainly get better; but the Lord has made it clear to me that only death is before him.

  2040. 2Ki8:11 And he kept his eyes fixed on him till he was shamed, and the man of God was overcome with weeping.

  2041. 2Ki8:14 Then he went away from Elisha and came in to his master, who said to him, What did Elisha say to you? And his answer was, He said that you would certainly get well.

  2042. 2Ki8:17 He was thirty-two years old when he became king; and he was ruling in Jerusalem for eight years.

  2043. 2Ki8:19 But it was not the Lord's purpose to send destruction on Judah, because of David his servant, to whom he had given his word that he would have a light for ever.

  2044. 2Ki8:26 Ahaziah was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he was ruling in Jerusalem for one year. His mother's name was Athaliah, the daughter of Omri, king of Israel.

  2045. 2Ki8:29 So King Joram went back to Jezreel to get well from the wounds which the bowmen had given him at Ramah, when he was fighting against Hazael, king of Aram. And Ahaziah, the son of Jehoram, king of Judah, went down to see Joram, the son of Ahab, in Jezreel, because he was ill.

  2046. 2Ki9:12 And they said, That is not true; now give us his story. Then he said, This is what he said to me: The Lord says, I have made you king over Israel.

  2047. 2Ki9:15 But King Joram had gone back to Jezreel to get well from the wounds which the Aramaeans had given him when he was fighting against Hazael, king of Aram.) And Jehu said, If this is your purpose, then let no one get away and go out of the town to give news of it in Jezreel.

  2048. 2Ki9:16 So Jehu got into his carriage and went to Jezreel, for Joram was ill in bed there; and Ahaziah, king of Judah, had come down to see Joram.

  2049. 2Ki9:17 And the watchman on the tower in Jezreel saw Jehu and his band coming, and said, I see a band of people. And Joram said, Send out a horseman to them, and let him say, Is it peace?

  2050. 2Ki9:18 So a horseman went out to them and said, The king says, Is it peace? And Jehu said, What have you to do with peace? come after me. And the watchman gave them word, saying, The horseman went up to them, but has not come back.

  2051. 2Ki9:20 And the watchman gave them word, saying, He went up to them and has not come back again; and the driving is like the driving of Jehu, son of Nimshi, for he is driving violently.

  2052. 2Ki9:21 Then Joram said, Make ready. So they made his carriage ready; and Joram, king of Israel, with Ahaziah, king of Judah, went out in their carriages for the purpose of meeting Jehu; and they came face to face with him at the field of Naboth the Jezreelite.

  2053. 2Ki9:22 Now when Joram saw Jehu he said, Is it peace, Jehu? And he said in answer, What peace is possible while all the land is full of the disgusting sins of your mother Jezebel, and her secret arts?

  2054. 2Ki9:35 And they went out to put her body into the earth, but nothing of her was to be seen, only the bones of her head, and her feet, and parts of her hands.

  2055. 2Ki9:36 So they came back and gave him word of it. And he said, This is what the Lord said by his servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, In the heritage of Jezreel the flesh of Jezebel will become food for dogs;

  2056. 2Ki10:1 Now there were in Samaria seventy of Ahab's sons. And Jehu sent letters to Samaria, to the rulers of the town, and to the responsible men, and to those who had the care of the sons of Ahab, saying,

  2057. 2Ki10:3 Take the best and most upright of your master's sons, and make him king in his father's place, and put up a fight for your master's family.

  2058. 2Ki10:5 So the controller of the king's house, with the ruler of the town, and the responsible men, and those who had the care of Ahab's sons, sent to Jehu, saying, We are your servants and will do all your orders; we will not make any man king; do whatever seems best to you.

  2059. 2Ki10:6 Then he sent them a second letter, saying, If you are on my side, and if you will do my orders, come to me at Jezreel by this time tomorrow, with the heads of your master's sons. Now the king's seventy sons were with the great men of the town, who had the care of them.

  2060. 2Ki10:7 And when the letter came to them, they took the king's sons and put them to death, all the seventy, and put their heads in baskets and sent them to him at Jezreel.

  2061. 2Ki10:8 And a man came and said to him, They have come with the heads of the king's sons. And he said, Put them down in two masses at the doorway of the town till the morning.

  2062. 2Ki10:15 And when he had gone away from there, he came across Jehonadab, the son of Rechab: and he said good-day to him, and said to him, Is your heart true to mine, as mine is to yours? And Jehonadab in answer said, It is; and Jehu said, If it is, give me your hand. And he gave him his hand, and he made him come up into his carriage.

  2063. 2Ki10:24 Then they went in to make offerings and burned offerings. Now Jehu had put eighty men outside, and said to them, If any man whom I give into your hands gets away, the life of him who lets him go will be the price of his life.

  2064. 2Ki10:25 Then when the burned offering was ended, straight away Jehu said to the armed men and the captains, Go in and put them to death; let not one come out. So they put them to the sword; and, pulling the images to the earth, they went into the holy place of the house of Baal.

  2065. 2Ki10:30 And the Lord said to Jehu, Because you have done well in doing what is right in my eyes and effecting all my purpose for the family of Ahab, your sons will be kings of Israel to the fourth generation.

  2066. 2Ki10:31 But Jehu did not take care to keep the law of the Lord with all his heart: he did not keep himself from the sin which Jeroboam did and made Israel do.

  2067. 2Ki11:5 And he gave them orders, saying, This is what you are to do: the third part of you, who come in on the Sabbath and keep the watch of the king's house,

  2068. 2Ki11:8 Will make a circle round the king, every man being armed; and whoever comes inside your lines is to be put to death; keep with the king, when he goes out and when he comes in.

  2069. 2Ki11:21 And Jehoash was seven years old when he became king.

  2070. 2Ki12:8 So the priests made an agreement to take no more money from the people, and not to make good what was damaged in the house.

  2071. 2Ki12:9 But Jehoiada the priest took a chest, and making a hole in the cover of it, put it by the altar, on the right side when one comes into the house of the Lord; and the priests who kept the door put in it regularly all the money which was taken into the house of the Lord.

  2072. 2Ki12:10 And when they saw that there was much money in the chest, the king's scribe and the high priest came and put it in bags, noting the amount of all the money there was in the house of the Lord.

  2073. 2Ki12:12 And to the wall-builders and the stone-cutters, and to get wood and cut stone for building up the broken parts of the house of the Lord, and for everything needed to put the house in good order.

  2074. 2Ki12:15 And they did not get any statement of accounts from the men to whom the money was given for the workmen, for they made use of it with good faith.

  2075. 2Ki12:17 Then Hazael, king of Aram, went up against Gath and took it; and his purpose was to go up to Jerusalem.

  2076. 2Ki13:7 For out of all his army, Jehoahaz had only fifty horsemen and ten carriages and ten thousand footmen; the king of Aram had given them up to destruction, crushing them like dust.

  2077. 2Ki14:2 He was twenty-five years old when he became king; and he was ruling in Jerusalem for twenty-nine years; his mother's name was Jehoaddin of Jerusalem.

  2078. 2Ki14:6 But he did not put their children to death; for the orders of the Lord recorded in the book of the law of Moses say, The fathers are not to be put to death for the children, or the children for their fathers; but a man is to be put to death for the sin which he himself has done.

  2079. 2Ki14:8 Then Amaziah sent representatives to Jehoash, the son of Jehoahaz, son of Jehu, king of Israel, saying, Come, let us have a meeting face to face.

  2080. 2Ki14:9 And Jehoash, king of Israel, sent to Amaziah, king of Judah, saying, The thorn-tree in Lebanon sent to the cedar in Lebanon, saying, Give your daughter to my son for a wife: and a beast from the woodland in Lebanon went by, crushing the thorn under his feet.

  2081. 2Ki14:22 He was the builder of Elath, which he got back for Judah after the death of the king.

  2082. 2Ki14:25 He got back the old limits of Israel from the way into Hamath to the sea of the Arabah, as the Lord had said by his servant Jonah, the son of Amittai, the prophet of Gath-hepher.

  2083. 2Ki14:27 And the Lord had not said that the name of Israel was to be taken away from the earth; but he gave them a saviour in Jeroboam, the son of Joash.

  2084. 2Ki15:2 He was sixteen years old when he became king, and he was ruling in Jerusalem for fifty-two years; his mother's name was Jecoliah of Jerusalem.

  2085. 2Ki15:12 This was what the Lord had said to Jehu, Your sons to the fourth generation will be kings of Israel. And so it came about.

  2086. 2Ki15:20 And Menahem got the money from Israel, from all the men of wealth, fifty silver shekels from every man, to give to the king of Assyria. So the king of Assyria went back without stopping in the land.

  2087. 2Ki15:33 He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he was ruling for sixteen years in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was Jerusha, the daughter of Zadok.

  2088. 2Ki16:2 Ahaz was twenty years old when he became king; he was ruling for sixteen years in Jerusalem. He did not do what was right in the eyes of the Lord his God, as David his father did.

  2089. 2Ki16:7 So Ahaz sent representatives to Tiglath-pileser, king of Assyria, saying, I am your servant and your son; come to my help against the kings of Aram and Israel who have taken up arms against me.

  2090. 2Ki16:10 Then King Ahaz went to Damascus for a meeting with Tiglath-pileser, king of Assyria; and there he saw the altar which was at Damascus; and King Ahaz sent to Urijah the priest a copy of the altar, giving the design of it and all the details of its structure.

  2091. 2Ki16:11 And from the copy King Ahaz sent from Damascus, Urijah made an altar and had it ready by the time King Ahaz came back from Damascus.

  2092. 2Ki16:15 And King Ahaz gave orders to Urijah the priest, saying, Make the morning burned offering and the evening meal offering and the king's burned offering and meal offering, with the burned offerings of all the people and their meal offerings and drink offerings, on the great altar, and put on it all the blood of the burned offerings and of the beasts which are offered; but the brass altar will be for my use to get directions from the Lord.

  2093. 2Ki17:13 And he gave witness to Israel and Judah, by every prophet and seer, saying, Come back from your evil ways, and do my orders and keep my rules, and be guided by the law which I gave to your fathers and sent to you by my servants the prophets.

  2094. 2Ki17:15 And they went against his rules, and the agreement which he made with their fathers, and his laws which he gave them; they gave themselves up to things without sense or value, and became foolish like the nations round them, of whom the Lord had said, Do not as they do.

  2095. 2Ki17:17 And they made their sons and their daughters go through the fire, and they made use of secret arts and unnatural powers, and gave themselves up to doing evil in the eyes of the Lord, till he was moved to wrath.

  2096. 2Ki17:25 Now when first they were living there they did not give worship to the Lord. So the Lord sent lions among them, causing the death of some of them.

  2097. 2Ki17:26 So they said to the king of Assyria, The nations whom you have taken as prisoners and put in the towns of Samaria, have no knowledge of the way of the god of the land: so he has sent lions among them, causing their death, because they have no knowledge of his way.

  2098. 2Ki17:27 Then the king of Assyria gave orders, saying, Send there one of the priests whom you took away, and let him be living there and teaching the people the way of the god of the land.

  2099. 2Ki17:35 And the Lord made an agreement with them and gave them orders, saying, You are to have no other gods; you are not to give worship to them or be their servants or make them offerings:

  2100. 2Ki17:37 And the rules and the orders and the law which he put in writing for you, you are to keep and do for ever; you are to have no other gods.

  2101. 2Ki18:2 He was twenty-five years old when he became king, ruling in Jerusalem for twenty-nine years; his mother's name was Abi, the daughter of Zechariah.

  2102. 2Ki18:14 And Hezekiah, king of Judah, sent to Lachish, to the king of Assyria, saying, I have done wrong; give up attacking me, and whatever you put on me I will undergo. And the payment he was to make was fixed by the king of Assyria at three hundred talents of silver and thirty talents of gold.

  2103. 2Ki18:23 And now, take a chance with my master, the king of Assyria, and I will give you two thousand horses, if you are able to put horsemen on them.

  2104. 2Ki18:27 But the Rab-shakeh said to them, Is it to your master or to you that my master has sent me to say these words? has he not sent me to the men seated on the wall? for they are the people who will be short of food with you when the town is shut in.

  2105. 2Ki18:30 And do not let Hezekiah make you put your faith in the Lord, saying, The Lord will certainly keep us safe, and this town will not be given into the hands of the king of Assyria.

  2106. 2Ki18:32 Till I come and take you away to a land like yours, a land of grain and wine, a land of bread and vine-gardens, a land of oil-giving olives and of honey, so that life and not death may be your fate. Give no attention to Hezekiah when he says to you, The Lord will keep us safe.

  2107. 2Ki18:36 But the people kept quiet and gave him no answer: for the king's order was, Give him no answer.

  2108. 2Ki19:1 And on hearing it, King Hezekiah took off his robe, and put on haircloth, and went into the house of the Lord.

  2109. 2Ki19:3 And they said to him, Hezekiah says, This day is a day of trouble and punishment and shame; for the children are ready to come to birth, but there is no strength to give birth to them.

  2110. 2Ki19:9 And when news came to him that Tirhakah, king of Ethiopia, had made an attack on him, he sent representatives to Hezekiah again, saying,

  2111. 2Ki19:10 This is what you are to say to Hezekiah, king of Judah: Let not your God, in whom is your faith, give you a false hope, saying, Jerusalem will not be given into the hands of the king of Assyria.

  2112. 2Ki19:20 Then Isaiah, the son of Amoz, sent to Hezekiah, saying, The Lord, the God of Israel, says, The prayer which you have made to me against Sennacherib, king of Assyria, has come to my ears.

  2113. 2Ki19:27 But I have knowledge of your getting up and your resting, of your going out and your coming in.

  2114. 2Ki19:29 And this will be the sign to you: you will get your food this year from what comes up of itself; and in the second year from the produce of the same; and in the third year you will put in your seed and get in the grain and make vine-gardens and take of their fruit.

  2115. 2Ki20:1 In those days Hezekiah was ill and near death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, came to him, and said to him, The Lord says, Put your house in order, for your death is near.

  2116. 2Ki20:2 Then, turning his face to the wall, he made his prayer to the Lord, saying,

  2117. 2Ki20:4 Now before Isaiah had gone out of the middle of the town, the word of the Lord came to him, saying,

  2118. 2Ki20:10 And Hezekiah said in answer, It is a simple thing for the shade to go forward; but let it go back ten degrees.

  2119. 2Ki21:1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king; for fifty-five years he was ruling in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was Hephzi-bah.

  2120. 2Ki21:6 And he made his son go through the fire, and made use of secret arts and signs for reading the future; he gave positions to those who had control of spirits and to wonder-workers; he did much evil in the eyes of the Lord, moving him to wrath.

  2121. 2Ki21:8 And never again will I send the feet of Israel wandering from the land which I gave to their fathers; if only they will take care to do all my orders, and keep all the law which my servant Moses gave them.

  2122. 2Ki21:9 But they did not give ear; and Manasseh made them do more evil than those nations did, whom the Lord gave up to destruction before the children of Israel.

  2123. 2Ki21:10 And the Lord said, by his servants the prophets,

  2124. 2Ki21:16 More than this, Manasseh took the lives of upright men, till Jerusalem from one end to the other was full of blood; in addition to his sin in making Judah do evil in the eyes of the Lord.

  2125. 2Ki21:19 Amon was twenty-two years old when he became king, ruling in Jerusalem for two years; his mother's name was Meshullemeth, the daughter of Haruz of Jotbah.

  2126. 2Ki22:1 Josiah was eight years old when he became king; and he was ruling in Jerusalem for thirty-one years; his mother's name was Jedidah, daughter of Adaiah of Bozkath.

  2127. 2Ki22:3 Now in the eighteenth year after he became king, Josiah sent Shaphan, the son of Azaliah, the son of Meshullam, the scribe, to the house of the Lord, saying to him,

  2128. 2Ki22:6 To the woodworkers and the builders and the stone-cutters; and for getting wood and cut stones for the building up of the house.

  2129. 2Ki22:10 Then Shaphan the scribe said to the king, Hilkiah the priest has given me a book; and he was reading it before the king.

  2130. 2Ki22:11 And the king, hearing the words of the book of the law, took his robe in his hands, violently parting it as a sign of his grief;

  2131. 2Ki22:12 And he gave orders to Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, and Achbor, the son of Micaiah, and Shaphan the scribe, and Asaiah the king's servant, saying,

  2132. 2Ki22:13 Go and get directions from the Lord for me and for the people and for all Judah, about the words of this book which has come to light; for great is the wrath of the Lord which is burning against us, because our fathers have not given ear to the words of this book, to do all the things which are recorded in it.

  2133. 2Ki22:18 But to the king of Judah who sent you to get directions from the Lord, say, This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, has said: As to the words which have come to your ears,

  2134. 2Ki22:19 Because your heart was soft, and you made yourself low before me, when you had word of what I said against this place and its people, that they would become a waste and a curse, and you gave signs of grief, weeping before me: truly, I have given ear to you, says the Lord.

  2135. 2Ki23:3 And the king took his place by the pillar, and made an agreement before the Lord, to go in the way of the Lord, and keep his orders and his decisions and his rules with all his heart and all his soul, and to keep the words of the agreement recorded in the book; and all the people gave their word to keep the agreement.

  2136. 2Ki23:11 And he took away the horses which the kings of Judah had given to the sun, at the way into the house of the Lord, by the room of Nathan-melech, the unsexed servant, which was in the outer part of the building, and the carriages of the sun he put on fire.

  2137. 2Ki23:21 And the king gave orders to all the people, saying, Keep the Passover to the Lord your God, as it says in this book of the law.

  2138. 2Ki23:29 In his days, Pharaoh-necoh, king of Egypt, sent his armies against the king of Assyria to the river Euphrates; and King Josiah went out against him; and he put him to death at Megiddo, when he had seen him.

  2139. 2Ki23:31 Jehoahaz was twenty-three years old when he became king, ruling in Jerusalem for three months; his mother's name was Hamutal, the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah.

  2140. 2Ki23:33 And Pharaoh-necoh put him in chains at Riblah in the land of Hamath, so that he might not be king in Jerusalem; and took from the land a tax of a hundred talents of silver and a talent of gold.

  2141. 2Ki23:35 And Jehoiakim gave the silver and gold to Pharaoh, taxing the land by his orders to get the money; the people of the land had to give silver and gold, everyone as he was taxed, to make the payment to Pharaoh-necoh.

  2142. 2Ki23:36 Jehoiakim was twenty-five years old when he became king; he was ruling in Jerusalem for eleven years; his mother's name was Zebidah, the daughter of Pedaiah of Rumah.

  2143. 2Ki24:4 And because of the death of those who had done no wrong, for he made Jerusalem full of the blood of the upright; and the Lord had no forgiveness for it.

  2144. 2Ki24:7 And the king of Egypt did not come out of his land again, for the king of Babylon had taken all his country, from the stream of Egypt to the river Euphrates.

  2145. 2Ki24:8 Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king, he was ruling in Jerusalem for three months, and his mother's name was Nehushta, the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.

  2146. 2Ki24:12 Then Jehoiachin, king of Judah, went out to the king of Babylon, with his mother and his servants and his chiefs and his unsexed servants; and in the eighth year of his rule the king of Babylon took him.

  2147. 2Ki24:18 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he was king in Jerusalem for eleven years; his mother's name was Hamutal, daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah.

  2148. 2Ki25:1 Now in the ninth year of his rule, on the tenth day of the tenth month, Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, came against Jerusalem with all his army and took up his position before it, building earthworks all round the town.

  2149. 2Ki25:27 And in the thirty-seventh year after Jehoiachin, king of Judah, had been taken prisoner, in the twelfth month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, Evil-merodach, king of Babylon, in the first year of his rule, took Jehoiachin, king of Judah, out of prison;

  2150. 1Ch1:43 Now these are the kings who were ruling in the land of Edom, before there was any king over Israel: Bela, the son of Beor; his town was named Dinhabah.

  2151. 1Ch4:9 And Jabez was honoured more than his brothers; but his mother had given him the name Jabez, saying, Because I gave birth to him with sorrow.

  2152. 1Ch4:10 And Jabez made a prayer to the God of Israel, saying, If only you would truly give me a blessing, and make wider the limits of my land, and let your hand be with me, and keep me from evil, so that I may not be troubled by it! And God gave him his desire.

  2153. 1Ch4:31 And at Beth-marcaboth, and at Hazarsusim, and at Beth-biri, and at Shaaraim. These were their towns till David became king.

  2154. 1Ch5:9 And to the east his limits went as far as the starting point of the waste land, ending at the river Euphrates, because their cattle were increased in number in the land of Gilead.

  2155. 1Ch6:32 They gave worship with songs before the House of the Tent of meeting, till Solomon put up the house of the Lord in Jerusalem; and they took their places for their work in their regular order.

  2156. 1Ch7:21 And Zabad his son, and Shuthelah his son, and Ezer and Elead, whom the men of Gath, who had been living in the land from their birth, put to death, because they came down to take away their cattle.

  2157. 1Ch9:25 And their brothers, in the country places where they were living, were to come in every seven days to be with them from time to time.

  2158. 1Ch10:13 So death came to Saul because of the sin which he did against the Lord, that is, because of the word of the Lord which he kept not; and because he went for directions to one who had an evil spirit,

  2159. 1Ch11:1 Then all Israel came together to David at Hebron, and said, Truly, we are your bone and your flesh.

  2160. 1Ch11:9 And David became greater and greater in power, because the Lord of armies was with him.

  2161. 1Ch11:18 So the three, forcing a way through the Philistine army, got water from the water-hole of Beth-lehem, by the doorway into the town, and took it back to David; but David would not take it, but made an offering of it, draining it out to the Lord,

  2162. 1Ch11:19 Saying, By my God, far be it from me to do this! How may I take as drink the life-blood of these men who have put their lives in danger? so he did not take it. These things did the three great men of war.

  2163. 1Ch12:17 And David went out to them, and said to them, If you have come in peace to give me help, my heart will be united with yours; but if you have come to give me up to those who would take my life, though my hands are clean from wrongdoing, then may the God of our fathers see it and give you punishment.

  2164. 1Ch12:19 And some of the men of Manasseh came over to David, when he went with the Philistines to the war against Saul, but he gave them no help: for the lords of the Philistines, after discussion, sent him away, saying, He will go back to his master Saul, at the price of our lives.

  2165. 1Ch12:20 Then when he went back to Ziklag, there came over to him, of the men of Manasseh, Adnah and Jozabad and Jediael and Michael and Jozabad and Elihu and Zillethai, captains of thousands from the armies of Manasseh.

  2166. 1Ch12:22 And from day to day more supporters came to David, till he had a great army like the army of God.

  2167. 1Ch12:31 And from the half-tribe of Manasseh, eighteen thousand, listed by name, came to make David king.

  2168. 1Ch12:32 And of the children of Issachar, there were two hundred chiefs, men who had expert knowledge of the times and what it was best for Israel to do, and all their brothers were under their orders.

  2169. 1Ch12:33 Of Zebulun, there were fifty thousand men, who went out with the army, expert in ordering the fight, to give help with all sorts of arms; true-hearted men.

  2170. 1Ch12:36 And of Asher, forty thousand who went out with the army, expert in ordering the fight.

  2171. 1Ch13:4 And all the people said they would do so, for it seemed right to them.

  2172. 1Ch13:5 So David sent for all Israel to come together, from Shihor, the river of Egypt, as far as the way into Hamath, to get the ark of God from Kiriath-jearim.

  2173. 1Ch13:9 And when they came to the grain-floor of Chidon, Uzza put out his hand to keep the ark in its place, for the oxen were slipping.

  2174. 1Ch13:12 And so great was David's fear of God that day, that he said, How may I let the ark of God come to me?

  2175. 1Ch14:1 And Hiram, king of Tyre, sent men to David with cedar-trees, and stoneworkers and woodworkers for the building of his house.

  2176. 1Ch14:10 And David, desiring directions from God, said, Am I to go up against the Philistines? and will you give them into my hands? And the Lord said, Go up; for I will give them into your hands.

  2177. 1Ch14:15 And at the sound of footsteps in the tops of the trees, go out to the fight, for God has gone out before you to overcome the army of the Philistines.

  2178. 1Ch15:2 Then David said, The ark of God may not be moved by any but the Levites, for they have been marked out by God to take the ark of God, and to do his work for ever.

  2179. 1Ch15:26 And when God gave help to the Levites who were lifting up the ark of the agreement of the Lord, they made an offering of seven oxen and seven sheep.

  2180. 1Ch16:18 Saying, To you will I give the land of Canaan, the measured line of your heritage:

  2181. 1Ch16:21 He would not let anyone do them wrong; he even kept back kings because of them,

  2182. 1Ch16:33 Then let all the trees of the wood be sounding with joy before the Lord, for he is come to be the judge of the earth.

  2183. 1Ch17:3 But that same night, the word of God came to Nathan, saying,

  2184. 1Ch17:4 Go and say to David my servant, The Lord says, You are not to make me a house for my living-place:

  2185. 1Ch17:6 In all the places where I have gone with all Israel, did I ever say to any of the judges of Israel, whom I made the keepers of my people, Why have you not made for me a house of cedar?

  2186. 1Ch17:11 And when the time comes for you to go to your fathers, I will put in your place your seed after you, one of your sons, and I will make his kingdom strong.

  2187. 1Ch17:21 And what other nation in the earth, like your people Israel, did a god go out to take for himself, to be his people, making his name great and to be feared, driving out the nations from before your people whom you made free and took out of Egypt?

  2188. 1Ch17:24 So let your words be made certain and your name be made great, when men say, The Lord of armies is the God of Israel; and when the family of David your servant is made strong before you.

  2189. 1Ch17:25 For you, O my God, have let your servant see that you will make him head of a line of kings; and so it has come into your servant's heart to make his prayer to you.

  2190. 1Ch18:3 Then David overcame Hadadezer, king of Zobah, near Hamath, when he was going to make his power seen by the river Euphrates.

  2191. 1Ch18:5 And when the Aramaeans of Damascus came to the help of Hadadezer, king of Zobah, David put to the sword twenty-two thousand Aramaeans.

  2192. 1Ch18:10 He sent his son Hadoram to King David, to give him words of peace and blessing, because he had overcome Hadadezer in the fight, for Hadadezer had been at war with Tou; and he gave him all sorts of vessels of gold and silver and brass.

  2193. 1Ch19:3 But the chiefs of the children of Ammon said to Hanun, Does it seem to you that David is honouring your father, by sending comforters to you? is it not clear that these men have only come to go through the land and to make secret observation of it so that they may overcome it?

  2194. 1Ch19:5 Then certain men went and gave David word of what had been done to them. And he sent out with the purpose of meeting them; for the men were greatly shamed. And the king said, Keep where you are at Jericho till your hair is long again, and then come back.

  2195. 1Ch19:6 And when the children of Ammon saw that they had made themselves hated by David, Hanun and the children of Ammon sent a thousand talents of silver as payment for war-carriages and horsemen from Mesopotamia and Aram-maacah and Zobah.

  2196. 1Ch19:10 Now when Joab saw that their forces were in position against him in front and at his back, he took all the best men of Israel, and put them in line against the Aramaeans;

  2197. 1Ch19:11 And the rest of the people he put in position against the children of Ammon with Abishai, his brother, at their head.

  2198. 1Ch19:17 And word of this was given to David; and he got all Israel together and went over Jordan and came to Helam and put his forces in position against them. And when David's forces were in position against the Aramaeans, the fight was started.

  2199. 1Ch20:1 Now in the spring, at the time when kings go out to war, Joab went out at the head of the armed forces and made waste all the land of the Ammonites and put his men in position before Rabbah, shutting it in. But David was still at Jerusalem. And Joab took Rabbah and made it waste.

  2200. 1Ch21:1 Now Satan, designing evil against Israel, put into David's mind the impulse to take the number of Israel.

  2201. 1Ch21:9 Then the word of the Lord came to Gad, David's seer, saying,

  2202. 1Ch21:10 Go and say to David, The Lord says, Three things are offered to you: say which of them you will have, so that I may do it to you.

  2203. 1Ch21:17 And David said to God, Was it not I who gave the order for the people to be numbered? It is I who have done the sin and the great wrong; but these are only sheep; what have they done? let your hand, O Lord God, be lifted up against me and against my family, but not against your people to send disease on them.

  2204. 1Ch21:18 Then the angel of the Lord gave orders to Gad to say to David that he was to go and put up an altar to the Lord on the grain-floor of Ornan the Jebusite.

  2205. 1Ch21:24 And King David said to Ornan, No; I will certainly give you the full price for it, because I will not take for the Lord what is yours, or give a burned offering without payment.

  2206. 1Ch21:28 At that time, when David saw that the Lord had given him an answer on the grain-floor of Ornan the Jebusite, he made an offering there.

  2207. 1Ch21:30 But David was not able to go before it to get directions from the Lord, so great was his fear of the sword of the angel of the Lord.

  2208. 1Ch22:2 And David gave orders to get together all the men from strange lands who were in the land of Israel; and he put stone-cutters to work, cutting stones for building the house of God.

  2209. 1Ch22:5 And David said, Solomon my son is young and untested, and the house which is to be put up for the Lord is to be very great, a thing of wonder and glory through all countries; so I will make ready what is needed for it. So David got ready a great store of material before his death.

  2210. 1Ch22:6 Then he sent for his son Solomon, and gave him orders for the building of a house for the Lord, the God of Israel.

  2211. 1Ch22:7 And David said to Solomon, My son, it was my desire to put up a house for the name of the Lord my God.

  2212. 1Ch22:8 But the word of the Lord came to me saying, You have taken lives without number and made great wars; I will not let you be the builder of a house for my name, because of the lives you have taken on the earth before my eyes.

  2213. 1Ch22:12 Only may the Lord give you wisdom, and knowledge of his orders for Israel, so that you may keep the law of the Lord your God.

  2214. 1Ch22:13 And all will go well for you, if you take care to keep the laws and the rules which the Lord gave to Moses for Israel: be strong and take heart; have no fear and do not be troubled.

  2215. 1Ch22:17 Then David gave orders to all the chiefs of Israel to give their help to Solomon his son, saying,

  2216. 1Ch22:19 Now give your heart and soul to the worship of the Lord your God; and get to work on the building of the holy place of the Lord God, so that you may put the ark of the Lord's agreement and the holy vessels of God in the house which is to be made for the name of the Lord.

  2217. 1Ch23:26 And from now, there will be no need for the House of the Lord, and the vessels used in it, to be moved about by the Levites.

  2218. 1Ch23:30 They had to take their places every morning to give praise and make melody to the Lord, and in the same way at evening;

  2219. 1Ch24:19 So they were put into their different groups, to take their places in the house of the Lord, in agreement with the rules made by Aaron their father, as the Lord, the God of Israel, had given him orders.

  2220. 1Ch27:24 The numbering was started by Joab, the son of Zeruiah, but he did not go on to the end; and because of it, wrath came on Israel and the number was not recorded in the history of King David.

  2221. 1Ch28:2 Then David the king got up and said, Give ear to me, my brothers and my people; it was my desire to put up a house, a resting-place for the ark of the Lord's agreement, and for the foot-rest of our God; and I had got material ready for the building of it.

  2222. 1Ch28:5 And of all my sons (for the Lord has given me a great number of sons) he has made selection of Solomon to take his place on the seat of the kingdom of the Lord over Israel.

  2223. 1Ch28:7 I will keep his kingdom in its place for ever, if he is strong at all times to do my orders and keep my rules, as at this day.

  2224. 1Ch28:10 Now then, take note; for the Lord has made selection of you to be the builder of a house for the holy place. Be strong and do it.

  2225. 1Ch28:20 And David said to his son Solomon, Be strong and of a good heart and do your work; have no fear and do not be troubled, for the Lord God, my God, is with you; he will not give you up, and his face will not be turned away from you, till all the work necessary for the house of the Lord is complete.

  2226. 1Ch29:3 And because this house of God is dear to me, I give my private store of gold and silver to the house of my God, in addition to all I have got ready for the holy house;

  2227. 1Ch29:4 Even three thousand talents of gold of Ophir and seven thousand talents of the best silver, for plating the walls of the house:

  2228. 1Ch29:16 O Lord our God, all this store, which we have made ready for the building of a house for your holy name, comes from your hand and is yours.

  2229. 1Ch29:19 And give to Solomon my son a true heart, to keep your orders, your rules, and your laws, and to do all these things, and to put up this great house for which I have made ready.

  2230. 2Ch2:1 Now it was Solomon's purpose to put up a house for the name of the Lord and a house for himself as king.

  2231. 2Ch2:3 And Solomon sent to Huram, king of Tyre, saying, As you did for my father David, sending him cedar-trees for the building of his house,

  2232. 2Ch2:6 But who may have strength enough to make a house for him, seeing that the heaven and the heaven of heavens are not wide enough to be his resting-place? who am I then to make a house for him? But I am building it only for the burning of perfume before him.

  2233. 2Ch2:7 So now send me an expert worker in gold and silver and brass and iron? in purple and red and blue, and in the cutting of all sorts of ornament, to be with the expert workmen who are here in Judah and in Jerusalem, whom my father David got together.

  2234. 2Ch2:8 And send me cedar-trees, cypress-trees and sandal-wood from Lebanon, for, to my knowledge, your servants are expert wood-cutters in Lebanon; and my servants will be with yours,

  2235. 2Ch2:14 The son of a woman of the daughters of Dan, whose father was a man of Tyre, an expert worker in gold and silver and brass and iron, in stone and wood, in purple and blue and fair linen and red, trained in the cutting of every sort of ornament and the invention of every sort of design; let him be given a place among your expert workmen and those of my lord, your father David.

  2236. 2Ch3:1 Then Solomon made a start at building the house of the Lord on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem, where the Lord had been seen by his father David, in the place which David had made ready in the grain-floor of Ornan the Jebusite.

  2237. 2Ch3:2 The building was started in the second month in the fourth year of his rule.

  2238. 2Ch3:3 And Solomon put the base of the house of God in position; by the older measure it was sixty cubits long and twenty cubits wide.

  2239. 2Ch4:6 And he made ten washing-vessels, putting five on the right side and five on the left; such things as were used in making the burned offering were washed in them; but the great water-vessel was to be used by the priests for washing themselves.

  2240. 2Ch4:11 And Huram made all the pots and the spades and the basins. So he came to the end of all the work he did for King Solomon in the house of God:

  2241. 2Ch5:10 Nothing was in the ark but the two flat stones which Moses put there at Horeb, where the Lord made an agreement with the children of Israel when they came out of Egypt.

  2242. 2Ch5:11 Now when the priests had come out of the holy place, (for all the priests who were present had made themselves holy, not keeping to their divisions;

  2243. 2Ch5:14 So that the priests were not able to keep their places to do their work because of the cloud; for the house of God was full of the glory of the Lord.

  2244. 2Ch6:1 Then Solomon said, O Lord, to the sun you have given the heaven for a living-place, but your living-place was not seen by men,

  2245. 2Ch6:2 So I have made for you a living-place, a house in which you may be for ever present.

  2246. 2Ch6:4 And he said, Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, who himself gave his word to my father David, and with his strong hand has made his word come true, saying,

  2247. 2Ch6:5 From the day when I took my people out of the land of Egypt, no town in all the tribes of Israel has been marked out by me for the building of a house for the resting-place of my name; and I took no man to be a ruler over my people Israel;

  2248. 2Ch6:7 Now it was in the heart of my father David to put up a house for the name of the Lord, the God of Israel.

  2249. 2Ch6:8 But the Lord said to David my father, You did well to have in your heart the desire to make a house for my name:

  2250. 2Ch6:16 So now, O Lord, the God of Israel, let your word to your servant David, my father, come true, when you said, You will never be without a man to take his place before me on the seat of the kingdom of Israel; if only your children give attention to their ways, walking in my law, as you have done before me.

  2251. 2Ch6:19 Still, let your heart be turned to the prayer of your servant and to his prayer for grace, O Lord my God, and give ear to the cry and the prayer which your servant makes before you;

  2252. 2Ch6:20 That your eyes may be open to this house day and night, to this place of which you have said that you would put your name there; to give ear to the prayer which your servant may make, turning to this place.

  2253. 2Ch6:21 And give ear to the prayers of your servant and of your people Israel, when they make their prayers, turning to this place; give ear from heaven your living-place; and hearing have mercy.

  2254. 2Ch6:23 Then let your ear be open in heaven, and be the judge of your servants, giving punishment to the wrongdoer, so that his sin may come on his head; and, by your decision, keeping from evil him who has done no wrong.

  2255. 2Ch6:30 Then give ear from heaven your living-place, answering with forgiveness, and give to every man, whose secret heart is open to you, the reward of all his ways; (for you, and you only, have knowledge of the hearts of the children of men;)

  2256. 2Ch6:31 So that they may give you worship, walking in your ways, as long as they are living in the land which you gave to our fathers.

  2257. 2Ch6:33 Then give ear from heaven your living-place, and give him his desire, whatever it may be; so that all the peoples of the earth may have knowledge of your name, worshipping you as do your people Israel, and may see that this house which I have made is truly named by your name.

  2258. 2Ch6:37 And if they take thought, in the land where they are prisoners, turning again to you, crying out in prayer to you in that land, and saying, We are sinners, we have done wrong, we have done evil;

  2259. 2Ch6:39 Then give ear from heaven your living-place to their prayer and their cry, and see right done to them, answering with forgiveness your people who have done wrong against you.

  2260. 2Ch7:2 And the priests were not able to go into the house of the Lord, for the Lord's house was full of the glory of the Lord.

  2261. 2Ch7:3 And all the children of Israel were looking on when the fire came down, and the glory of the Lord was on the house; and they went down on their knees, with their faces to the earth, worshipping and praising the Lord, and saying, He is good; for his mercy is unchanging for ever.

  2262. 2Ch7:8 So Solomon kept the feast at that time for seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great meeting, for the people had come together from the way into Hamath and from as far as the river of Egypt.

  2263. 2Ch7:11 So Solomon came to the end of building the house of the Lord and the king's house; and everything which it was in his mind to make in the house of the Lord and for himself had been well done.

  2264. 2Ch7:13 If, at my word, heaven is shut up, so that there is no rain, or if I send locusts on the land for its destruction, or if I send disease on my people;

  2265. 2Ch7:17 And as for you, if you will go on your way before me as David your father did, doing whatever I have given you orders to do and keeping my laws and my decisions:

  2266. 2Ch7:18 Then I will make strong the seat of your kingdom, as I gave my word to David your father, saying, You will never be without a man to be ruler in Israel.

  2267. 2Ch8:6 And of Baalath, and all the store-towns which Solomon had, and the towns where he kept his war-carriages and his horse men, and everything which it was his pleasure to put up in Jerusalem and in Lebanon and in all the land under his rule.

  2268. 2Ch8:16 And all the work of Solomon was complete, from the day when he put the base of the Lord's house in position, till Solomon had come to the end of building the Lord's house.

  2269. 2Ch9:8 Praise be to the Lord your God whose pleasure it was to put you on the seat of his kingdom to be king for the Lord your God: because, in his love for Israel, it was the purpose of your God to make them strong for ever, he made you king over them, to be their judge in righteousness.

  2270. 2Ch9:18 There were six steps up to it, and a foot-rest of gold fixed to it, and arms on the two sides of the seat, with two lions at the side of the arms.

  2271. 2Ch9:23 And all the kings of the earth came to see Solomon and to give ear to his wisdom, which God had put into his heart.

  2272. 2Ch10:2 And when Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, had news of it, (for he was in Egypt where he had gone in flight from King Solomon,) he came back from Egypt.

  2273. 2Ch10:3 And they sent for him; and Jeroboam and all Israel came to Rehoboam and said,

  2274. 2Ch10:6 Then King Rehoboam took the opinion of the old men who had been with Solomon his father when he was living, and said, In your opinion, what answer am I to give to this people?

  2275. 2Ch10:7 And they said to him, If you are kind to this people, pleasing them and saying good words to them, then they will be your servants for ever.

  2276. 2Ch10:9 And he said to them, What is your opinion? What answer are we to give to this people who have said to me, Make less the weight of the yoke which your father put on us?

  2277. 2Ch10:10 And the young men of his generation said to him, This is the answer to give to the people who came to you saying, Your father put a hard yoke on us, but will you make it less; say to them, My little finger is thicker than my father's body;

  2278. 2Ch10:12 So Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam on the third day, as the king had given orders, saying, Come to me again on the third day.

  2279. 2Ch10:14 But gave them the answer put forward by the young men, saying, My father made your yoke hard, but I will make it harder; my father gave you punishment with whips, but I will give it with snakes.

  2280. 2Ch10:16 And when all Israel saw that the king would give no attention to them, the people in answer said to the king, What part have we in David? what is our heritage in the son of Jesse? every man to your tents, O Israel; now see to your house, David. So all Israel went to their tents.

  2281. 2Ch10:18 Then Rehoboam sent Adoniram, the overseer of the forced work; and he was stoned to death by all Israel. And King Rehoboam went quickly and got into his carriage to go in flight to Jerusalem.

  2282. 2Ch11:2 But the word of the Lord came to Shemaiah, the man of God, saying,

  2283. 2Ch11:3 Say to Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, king of Judah, and to all Israel in Judah and Benjamin,

  2284. 2Ch11:4 The Lord has said, You are not to go to war against your brothers: let every man go back to his house, for this thing is my purpose. So they gave ear to the words of the Lord and were turned back from fighting against Jeroboam.

  2285. 2Ch11:16 And after them, from all the tribes of Israel, all those whose hearts were fixed and true to the Lord, the God of Israel, came to Jerusalem to make offerings to the Lord, the God of their fathers.

  2286. 2Ch12:7 And the Lord, seeing that they had made themselves low, said to Shemaiah, They have made themselves low: I will not send destruction on them, but in a short time I will give them salvation, and will not let loose my wrath on Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak.

  2287. 2Ch12:11 And whenever the king went into the house of the Lord, the armed men went with him taking the body-covers, and then took them back to their room.

  2288. 2Ch12:13 So King Rehoboam made himself strong in Jerusalem and was ruling there. Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he became king, and he was ruling for seventeen years in Jerusalem, the town which the Lord had made his out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there; and his mother's name was Naamah, an Ammonite woman.

  2289. 2Ch12:14 And he did evil because his heart was not true to the Lord.

  2290. 2Ch13:5 Is it not clear to you that the Lord, the God of Israel, gave the rule over Israel to David and to his sons for ever, by an agreement made with salt?

  2291. 2Ch13:13 But Jeroboam had put some of his men to make a surprise attack on them from the back, so some were facing Judah and others were stationed secretly at their back.

  2292. 2Ch14:4 And he made Judah go after the Lord, the God of their fathers, and keep his laws and his orders.

  2293. 2Ch14:11 And Asa made prayer to the Lord his God and said, Lord, you only are able to give help against the strong to him who has no strength; come to our help, O Lord our God, for our hope is in you, and in your name we have come out against this great army. O Lord, you are our God; let not man's power be greater than yours.

  2294. 2Ch15:8 And Asa, hearing these words of Azariah, the son of Oded the prophet, took heart and put away all the disgusting things out of all the land of Judah and Benjamin, and out of the towns which he had taken from the hill-country of Ephraim; and he made new again the altar of the Lord in front of the covered way of the Lord's house.

  2295. 2Ch15:9 And he got together all Judah and Benjamin and those of Ephraim and Manasseh and Simeon who were living with them; for numbers of them came to him out of Israel when they saw that the Lord his God was with him.

  2296. 2Ch15:12 And they made an agreement to be true to the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and all their soul;

  2297. 2Ch16:1 In the thirty-sixth year of the rule of Asa, Baasha, king of Israel, went up against Judah, building Ramah so that no one was able to go out or in to Asa, king of Judah.

  2298. 2Ch16:2 Then Asa took silver and gold out of the stores of the Lord's house and of the king's store-house, and sent to Ben-hadad, king of Aram, at Damascus, saying,

  2299. 2Ch16:5 Then Baasha, hearing of it, put a stop to the building of Ramah, and let his work come to an end.

  2300. 2Ch16:13 So Asa went to rest with his fathers, and death came to him in the forty-first year of his rule.

  2301. 2Ch17:7 In the third year of his rule he sent Benhail and Obadiah and Zechariah and Nethanel and Micaiah, his captains, as teachers into the towns of Judah;

  2302. 2Ch18:2 And after some years he went down to Samaria to see Ahab. And Ahab made a feast for him and the people who were with him, putting to death great numbers of sheep and oxen; and he got Jehoshaphat to go with him to Ramoth-gilead.

  2303. 2Ch18:7 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, There is still one man by whom we may get directions from the Lord, but I have no love for him, because he has never been a prophet of good to me, but only of evil: he is Micaiah, the son of Imla. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so.

  2304. 2Ch18:11 And all the prophets said the same thing, saying, Go up to Ramoth-gilead, and it will go well for you, for the Lord will give it into the hands of the king.

  2305. 2Ch18:12 Now the servant who had gone to get Micaiah said to him, See now, all the prophets with one voice are saying good things to the king; so let your words be like theirs, and say good things.

  2306. 2Ch18:26 And say, By the king's order this man is to be put in prison, and given prison food till I come back in peace.

  2307. 2Ch18:27 And Micaiah said, If you come back at all in peace, the Lord has not sent his word by me.

  2308. 2Ch18:29 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, I will make a change in my clothing, so that I do not seem to be the king, and will go into the fight; but do you put on your robes. So the king of Israel made a change in his dress, and they went to the fight.

  2309. 2Ch18:30 Now the king of Aram had given orders to the captains of his war-carriages, saying, Make no attack on small or great, but only on the king of Israel.

  2310. 2Ch18:31 So when the captains of the war-carriages saw Jehoshaphat, they said, It is the king of Israel. And turning about, they came round him, but Jehoshaphat gave a cry, and the Lord came to his help, and God sent them away from him.

  2311. 2Ch18:32 Now when the captains of the war-carriages saw that he was not the king of Israel, they went back from going after him.

  2312. 2Ch18:34 But the fight became more violent while the day went on; and the king of Israel was supported in his war-carriage facing the Aramaeans till the evening; and by sundown he was dead.

  2313. 2Ch19:2 And Jehu, the son of Hanani the seer, went to King Jehoshaphat and said to him, Is it right for you to go to the help of evil-doers, loving the haters of the Lord? because of this, the wrath of the Lord has come on you.

  2314. 2Ch19:3 But still there is some good in you, for you have put away the wood pillars out of the land, and have given your heart to the worship of God.

  2315. 2Ch19:9 And he gave them their orders, saying, You are to do your work in the fear of the Lord, in good faith and with a true heart.

  2316. 2Ch20:2 And they came to Jehoshaphat with the news, saying, A great army is moving against you from Edom across the sea; and now they are in Hazazon-tamar (which is En-gedi).

  2317. 2Ch20:3 Then Jehoshaphat, in his fear, went to the Lord for directions, and gave orders all through Judah for the people to go without food.

  2318. 2Ch20:8 And they made it their living-place, building there a holy house for your name, and saying,

  2319. 2Ch20:10 And now, see, the children of Ammon and Moab and the people of Mount Seir, whom you kept Israel from attacking when they came out of Egypt, so that turning to one side they did not send destruction on them:

  2320. 2Ch20:11 See now, how as our reward they have come to send us out of your land which you have given us as our heritage.

  2321. 2Ch20:20 And early in the morning they got up and went out to the waste land of Tekoa: and when they were going out, Jehoshaphat took his station and said to them, Give ear to me, O Judah and you people of Jerusalem: have faith in the Lord your God and you will be safe; have faith in his prophets and all will go well for you.

  2322. 2Ch20:21 And after discussion with the people, he put in their places those who were to make melody to the Lord, praising him in holy robes, while they went at the head of the army, and saying, May the Lord be praised, for his mercy is unchanging for ever.

  2323. 2Ch20:25 And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take their goods from them, they saw beasts in great numbers, and wealth and clothing and things of value, more than they were able to take away; all this they took for themselves, and they were three days getting it away, there was so much.

  2324. 2Ch20:27 Then all the men of Judah and Jerusalem went back, with Jehoshaphat at their head, coming back to Jerusalem with joy; for the Lord had made them glad over their haters.

  2325. 2Ch20:29 And the fear of God came on all the kingdoms of the lands, when they had news of how the Lord made war on those who came against Israel.

  2326. 2Ch20:31 And Jehoshaphat was king over Judah: he was thirty-five years old when he became king, and he was ruling for twenty-five years in Jerusalem: his mother's name was Azubah, the daughter of Shilhi.

  2327. 2Ch20:32 He went in the ways of his father Asa, not turning away, but doing right in the eyes of the Lord.

  2328. 2Ch20:35 After this Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, became friends with Ahaziah, king of Israel, who did much evil:

  2329. 2Ch20:36 Together they made ships to go to Tarshish, building them in Ezion-geber.

  2330. 2Ch20:37 Then the word of Eliezer the prophet, the son of Dodavahu of Mareshah, came against Jehoshaphat, saying, Because you have let yourself be joined with Ahaziah, the Lord has sent destruction on your works. And the ships were broken and were not able to go to Tarshish.

  2331. 2Ch21:5 Jehoram was thirty-two years old when he became king; and he was ruling in Jerusalem for eight years.

  2332. 2Ch21:7 But it was not the Lord's purpose to send destruction on the family of David, because of the agreement he had made with David, when he said he would give to him and to his sons a light for ever.

  2333. 2Ch21:12 And a letter came to him from Elijah the prophet, saying, The Lord, the God of your father David, says, Because you have not kept to the ways of your father Jehoshaphat or the ways of Asa, king of Judah,

  2334. 2Ch21:19 And time went on, and after two years, his inside falling out because of the disease, he came to his death in cruel pain. And his people made no burning for him like the burning made for his fathers.

  2335. 2Ch21:20 He was thirty-two years old when he became king, and he was ruling in Jerusalem for eight years: and at his death he was not regretted; they put his body into the earth in the town of David, but not in the resting-place of the kings.

  2336. 2Ch22:2 Ahaziah was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he was ruling in Jerusalem for one year. His mother's name was Athaliah, the daughter of Omri.

  2337. 2Ch22:6 And he went back to Jezreel to get well from the wounds which they had given him at Ramah when he was fighting against Hazael, king of Aram. And Ahaziah, the son of Jehoram, king of Judah, went down to Jezreel to see Jehoram, the son of Ahab, because he was ill.

  2338. 2Ch22:7 Now by the purpose of God, Ahaziah's journey to see Jehoram was the cause of his downfall: for when he came there, he went out with Jehoram against Jehu, the son of Nimshi, who had been marked out by the Lord for the destruction of the family of Ahab.

  2339. 2Ch22:9 And he went in search of Ahaziah; and when they came where he was, (for he was in a secret place in Samaria,) they took him to Jehu and put him to death; then they put his body to rest in the earth, for they said, He is the son of Jehoshaphat, whose heart was true to the Lord. So the family of Ahaziah had no power to keep the kingdom.

  2340. 2Ch23:7 And the Levites are to make a circle round the king, every man being armed; and any man who comes into the house is to be put to death; you are to keep with the king when he comes in and when he goes out.

  2341. 2Ch24:1 Joash was seven years old when he became king, and he was ruling for forty years in Jerusalem: his mother's name was Zibiah of Beer-sheba.

  2342. 2Ch24:11 So when the chest was taken to the king's servants by the Levites, and they saw that there was much money in it, the king's scribe and the chief priest's servant took the money out, and put the chest back in its place. They did this day by day, and got together a great amount of money.

  2343. 2Ch24:25 And when they had gone away from him, (for he was broken with disease,) his servants made a secret design against him because of the blood of the son of Jehoiada the priest, and they put him to death on his bed; and they put his body into the earth in the town of David, but not in the resting-place of the kings.

  2344. 2Ch25:4 But he did not put their children to death, for he kept the orders of the Lord recorded in the book of the law of Moses, saying, The fathers are not to be put to death for their children or the children for their fathers, but a man is to be put to death for the sin which he himself has done.

  2345. 2Ch25:7 But a man of God came to him, saying, O king, let not the army of Israel go with you; for the Lord is not with Israel, that is, the children of Ephraim.

  2346. 2Ch25:8 But go yourself, and be strong in war; God will not let you go down before those who are fighting against you; for God has power to give help or to send you down before your attackers.

  2347. 2Ch25:9 Then Amaziah said to the man of God, But what is to be done about the hundred talents which I have given for the armed band of Israel? And the man of God in answer said, God is able to give you much more than this.

  2348. 2Ch25:10 So Amaziah, separating the armed band which had come to him from Ephraim, sent them back again; which made them very angry with Judah, and they went back burning with wrath.

  2349. 2Ch25:13 But the men of the band which Amaziah sent back and did not take with him to the fight, made attacks on the towns of Judah from Samaria to Beth-horon, putting to death three thousand of their people and taking away a great store of their goods.

  2350. 2Ch25:14 Now when Amaziah came back from the destruction of the Edomites, he took the gods of the children of Seir and made them his gods, worshipping them and burning offerings before them.

  2351. 2Ch25:17 Then Amaziah, king of Judah, acting on the suggestion of his servants, sent to Joash, the son of Jehoahaz, the son of Jehu, king of Israel, saying, Come, let us have a meeting face to face.

  2352. 2Ch25:18 And Joash, king of Israel, sent to Amaziah, king of Judah, saying, The thorn-tree in Lebanon sent to the cedar in Lebanon, saying, Give your daughter to my son for a wife: and a beast from the woodland in Lebanon went by, crushing the thorn under his feet.

  2353. 2Ch25:20 But Amaziah gave no attention; and this was the purpose of God, so that he might give them up into the hands of Joash, because they had gone after the gods of Edom.

  2354. 2Ch26:2 He was the builder of Eloth, which he got back for Judah after the death of the king.

  2355. 2Ch26:3 Uzziah was sixteen years old when he became king, and he was ruling in Jerusalem for fifty-two years; his mother's name was Jechiliah of Jerusalem.

  2356. 2Ch26:5 He gave himself to searching after God in the days of Zechariah, who made men wise in the fear of God; and as long as he was true to the Lord, God made things go well for him.

  2357. 2Ch26:8 The Ammonites gave offerings to Uzziah: and news of him went out as far as the limit of Egypt; for he became very great in power.

  2358. 2Ch26:13 And under their orders was a trained army of three hundred and seven thousand, five hundred, of great strength in war, helping the king against any who came against him.

  2359. 2Ch26:15 And in Jerusalem he made machines, the invention of expert men, to be placed on the towers and angles of the walls for sending arrows and great stones. And his name was honoured far and wide; for he was greatly helped till he was strong.

  2360. 2Ch26:19 Then Uzziah was angry; and he had in his hand a vessel for burning perfume; and while his wrath was bitter against the priests, the mark of the leper's disease came out on his brow, before the eyes of the priests in the house of the Lord by the altar of perfumes.

  2361. 2Ch26:20 And Azariah, the chief priest, and all the priests, looking at him, saw the mark of the leper on his brow, and they sent him out quickly and he himself went out straight away, for the Lord's punishment had come on him.

  2362. 2Ch27:1 Jotham was twenty-five years old when he became king; and he was ruling in Jerusalem for sixteen years; and his mother's name was Jerushah, the daughter of Zadok.

  2363. 2Ch27:8 He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he was ruling in Jerusalem for sixteen years.

  2364. 2Ch28:1 Ahaz was twenty years old when he became king, and he was ruling in Jerusalem for sixteen years; he did not do what was right in the eyes of the Lord, like David his father:

  2365. 2Ch28:6 For Pekah, the son of Remaliah, in one day put to death a hundred and twenty thousand men of Judah, all of them good fighting-men; because they had given up the Lord, the God of their fathers.

  2366. 2Ch28:10 And now your purpose is to keep the children of Judah and Jerusalem as men-servants and women-servants under your yoke: but are there no sins against the Lord your God to be seen among yourselves?

  2367. 2Ch28:16 At that time King Ahaz sent for help to the king of Assyria.

  2368. 2Ch28:19 For the Lord made Judah low, because of Ahaz, king of Israel; for he had given up all self-control in Judah, sinning greatly against the Lord.

  2369. 2Ch28:22 And in the time of his trouble, this same King Ahaz did even more evil against the Lord.

  2370. 2Ch29:3 In the first year of his rule, in the first month, opening the doors of the Lord's house, he made them strong.

  2371. 2Ch29:10 Now it is my purpose to make an agreement with the Lord, the God of Israel, so that the heat of his wrath may be turned away from us.

  2372. 2Ch29:11 My sons, take care now: for you have been marked out by the Lord to come before him and to be his servants, burning offerings to him.

  2373. 2Ch29:28 And all the people gave worship, to the sound of songs and the blowing of horns; and this went on till the burned offering was ended.

  2374. 2Ch29:34 There were not enough priests for the work of cutting up all the burned offerings; so their brothers the Levites gave them help till the work was done and the priests had made themselves holy: for the Levites were more upright in heart to make themselves holy than the priests.

  2375. 2Ch30:1 Then Hezekiah sent word to all Israel and Judah, and sent letters to Ephraim and Manasseh, requesting them to come to the house of the Lord at Jerusalem, to keep the Passover to the Lord, the God of Israel.

  2376. 2Ch30:2 For the king, after discussion with his chiefs and all the body of the people in Jerusalem, had made a decision to keep the Passover in the second month.

  2377. 2Ch30:3 It was not possible to keep it at that time, because not enough priests had made themselves holy, and the people had not come together in Jerusalem.

  2378. 2Ch30:5 So it was ordered that word was to be sent out through all Israel, from Beer-sheba to Dan, that they were to come to keep the Passover to the Lord, the God of Israel, at Jerusalem: because they had not kept it in great numbers in agreement with the law.

  2379. 2Ch30:6 So runners went with letters from the king and his chiefs through all Israel and Judah, by the order of the king, saying, O children of Israel, come back again to the Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, so that he may come again to that small band of you which has been kept safe out of the hands of the kings of Assyria.

  2380. 2Ch30:9 For if you come back to the Lord, those who took away your brothers and your children will have pity on them, and let them come back to this land: for the Lord your God is full of grace and mercy, and his face will not be turned away from you if you come back to him.

  2381. 2Ch30:12 And in Judah the power of God gave them one heart to do the orders of the king and the captains, which were taken as the word of the Lord.

  2382. 2Ch30:13 So a very great number of people came together at Jerusalem to keep the feast of unleavened bread in the second month.

  2383. 2Ch30:18 For a great number of the people from Ephraim and Manasseh, Issachar and Zebulun, had not made themselves clean, but they took the Passover meal, though not in the right way. For Hezekiah had made prayer for them, saying, May the good Lord have mercy on everyone

  2384. 2Ch30:23 And by the desire of all the people, the feast went on for another seven days, and they kept the seven days with joy.

  2385. 2Ch31:4 In addition, he gave orders to the people of Jerusalem to give to the priests and Levites that part which was theirs by right, so that they might be strong in keeping the law of the Lord.

  2386. 2Ch31:5 And when the order was made public, straight away the children of Israel gave, in great amounts, the first-fruits of their grain and wine and oil and honey, and of the produce of their fields; and they took in a tenth part of everything, a great store.

  2387. 2Ch31:7 The first store of things was put down in the third month, and in the seventh month the masses were complete.

  2388. 2Ch31:10 And Azariah, the chief priest, of the family of Zadok, said in answer, From the time when the people first came with their offerings into the house of the Lord, we have had food enough, and more than enough: for the blessing of the Lord is on his people; and there is this great store which has not been used.

  2389. 2Ch31:19 And as for the sons of Aaron, the priests, living in the country on the outskirts of their towns, every different town there were men, marked out by name, to give their part of the goods to all the males among the priests, and to all who were listed among the Levites.

  2390. 2Ch31:21 And for everything he undertook, in connection with the work of the house of God and his law and orders, he got directions from God and did it with serious purpose; and things went well for him.

  2391. 2Ch32:1 Now after these things and this true-hearted work, Sennacherib, king of Assyria, came into Judah, and put his army in position before the walled towns of Judah, designing to make his way into them by force.

  2392. 2Ch32:3 He took up with his rulers and men of war the question of stopping up the water-springs outside the town; and they gave him their support.

  2393. 2Ch32:4 So they got together a great number of people, and had all the water-springs and the stream flowing through the land stopped up, saying, Why let the kings of Assyria come and have much water?

  2394. 2Ch32:6 And he put war chiefs over the people, and sent for them all to come together to him in the wide place at the doorway into the town, and to give them heart he said to them,

  2395. 2Ch32:8 With him is an arm of flesh; but we have the Lord our God, helping us and fighting for us. And the people put their faith in what Hezekiah, king of Judah, said.

  2396. 2Ch32:9 After this, Sennacherib, king of Assyria, sent his servants to Jerusalem (at that time he was stationed with all his army in front of Lachish), to say to Hezekiah and all the men of Judah in Jerusalem,

  2397. 2Ch32:11 Is it not Hezekiah who has got you to do it, causing your death from need of food and water, by saying, The Lord our God will give us salvation out of the hands of the king of Assyria?

  2398. 2Ch32:12 Has not this same Hezekiah taken away his high places and his altars, saying to Judah and Jerusalem, Give worship before one altar only, burning offerings on it?

  2399. 2Ch32:13 Have you no knowledge of what I and my fathers have done to all the peoples of every land? were the gods of the nations of those lands able to keep their land from falling into my hands?

  2400. 2Ch32:17 And he sent letters, in addition, to put shame on the Lord, the God of Israel, and to say evil against him, saying, As the gods of the nations of other lands have not been able to keep their people safe from my hands, no more will the God of Hezekiah keep his people safe from my hands.

  2401. 2Ch32:24 In those days Hezekiah was ill and near death; and he made prayer to the Lord, and the Lord in answer gave him a sign.

  2402. 2Ch32:31 However, in the business of the representatives sent by the rulers of Babylon to get news of the wonder which had taken place in the land, God gave up guiding him, testing him to see what was in his heart.

  2403. 2Ch33:1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king, and he was ruling for fifty-five years in Jerusalem.

  2404. 2Ch33:6 More than this, he made his children go through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom; and he made use of secret arts, and signs for reading the future, and unnatural powers, and gave positions to those who had control of spirits and to wonder-workers: he did much evil in the eyes of the Lord, moving him to wrath.

  2405. 2Ch33:8 And never again will I let the feet of Israel be moved out of the land which I have given to their fathers; if only they will take care to do all my orders, even all the law and the orders and the rules given to them by Moses.

  2406. 2Ch33:9 And Manasseh made Judah and the people of Jerusalem go out of the true way, so that they did more evil than those nations whom the Lord gave up to destruction before the children of Israel.

  2407. 2Ch33:14 After this he made an outer wall for the town of David, on the west side of Gihon in the valley, as far as the way into the town by the fish doorway; and he put a very high wall round the Ophel; and he put captains of the army in all the walled towns of Judah.

  2408. 2Ch33:16 And he put the altar of the Lord in order, offering peace-offerings and praise-offerings on it, and said that all Judah were to be servants of the Lord, the God of Israel.

  2409. 2Ch33:21 Amon was twenty-two years old when he became king; and he was ruling for two years in Jerusalem.

  2410. 2Ch34:1 Josiah was eight years old when he became king; he was ruling in Jerusalem for thirty-one years.

  2411. 2Ch34:3 In the eighth year of his rule, while he was still young, his heart was first turned to the God of his father David; and in the twelfth year he undertook the clearing away of all the high places and the pillars and the images of wood and metal from Judah and Jerusalem.

  2412. 2Ch34:8 Now in the eighteenth year of his rule, when the land and the house had been made clean, he sent Shaphan, the son of Azaliah, and Maaseiah, the ruler of the town, and Joah, the son of Joahaz, the recorder, to make good what was damaged in the house of the Lord his God.

  2413. 2Ch34:10 And they gave it to the overseers of the work of the Lord's house, and the overseers gave it to the workmen working in the house, for building it up and making good what was damaged;

  2414. 2Ch34:11 Even to the woodworkers and builders to get cut stone and wood for joining the structure together and for making boards for the houses which the kings of Judah had given up to destruction.

  2415. 2Ch34:16 And Shaphan took the book to the king; and he gave him an account of what had been done, saying, Your servants are doing all they have been given to do;

  2416. 2Ch34:18 Then Shaphan the scribe said to the king, Hilkiah the priest has given me a book; and he made a start at reading some of it to the king.

  2417. 2Ch34:19 And the king, hearing the words of the law, took his robe in his hands, violently parting it as a sign of his grief.

  2418. 2Ch34:20 And he gave orders to Hilkiah and to Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, and Abdon, the son of Micah, and Shaphan the scribe and Asaiah, the king's servant, saying,

  2419. 2Ch34:21 Go and get directions from the Lord for me and for those who are still in Israel and for Judah, about the words of this book which has come to light; for great is the wrath of the Lord which has been let loose on us, because our fathers have not kept the word of the Lord or done what is recorded in this book.

  2420. 2Ch34:26 But to the king of Judah who sent you to get directions from the Lord, say, This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, has said: Because you have given ear to my words,

  2421. 2Ch34:27 And your heart was soft, and you made yourself low before God, on hearing his words about this place and its people, and with weeping and signs of grief have made yourself low before me, I have given ear to you, says the Lord God.

  2422. 2Ch34:31 Then the king, taking his place by the pillar, made an agreement before the Lord, to go in the way of the Lord, and to keep his orders and his decisions and his rules with all his heart and with all his soul, and to keep the words of the agreement recorded in this book.

  2423. 2Ch34:33 Josiah took away all the disgusting things out of all the lands of the children of Israel, and made all who were in Israel servants of the Lord their God. And as long as he was living they were true to the Lord, the God of their fathers.

  2424. 2Ch35:6 And put the Passover lamb to death, and make yourselves holy, and make it ready for your brothers, so that the orders given by the Lord through Moses may be done.

  2425. 2Ch35:12 And they took away the burned offerings, so that they might give them to be offered to the Lord for the divisions of the families of the people, as it is recorded in the book of Moses. And they did the same with the oxen.

  2426. 2Ch35:15 And the sons of Asaph, the makers of melody, were in their places, as ordered by David and Asaph and Heman and Jeduthun, the king's seer; and the door-keepers were stationed at every door: there was no need for them to go away from their places, for their brothers the Levites made ready for them.

  2427. 2Ch35:16 So everything needed for the worship of the Lord was made ready that same day, for the keeping of the Passover and the offering of burned offerings on the altar of the Lord, as King Josiah had given orders.

  2428. 2Ch35:20 After all this, and after Josiah had put the house in order, Neco, king of Egypt, went up to make war at Carchemish by the river Euphrates; and Josiah went out against him.

  2429. 2Ch35:21 But he sent representatives to him, saying, What have I to do with you, O king of Judah? I have not come against you this day, but against those with whom I am at war; and God has given me orders to go forward quickly: keep out of God's way, for he is with me, or he will send destruction on you.

  2430. 2Ch36:2 Jehoahaz was twenty-three years old when he became king; he was ruling in Jerusalem for three months.

  2431. 2Ch36:5 Jehoiakim was twenty-five years old when he became king; he was ruling in Jerusalem for eleven years, and he did evil in the eyes of the Lord his God.

  2432. 2Ch36:9 Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king; he was ruling in Jerusalem for three months and ten days, and he did evil in the eyes of the Lord.

  2433. 2Ch36:11 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king; he was ruling in Jerusalem for eleven years.

  2434. 2Ch36:13 And he took up arms against King Nebuchadnezzar, though he had made him take an oath by God; but he made his neck stiff and his heart hard, turning away from the Lord, the God of Israel.

  2435. 2Ch36:14 And more than this, all the great men of Judah and the priests and the people made their sin great, turning to all the disgusting ways of the nations; and they made unclean the house of the Lord which he had made holy in Jerusalem.

  2436. 2Ch36:15 And the Lord, the God of their fathers, sent word to them by his servants, sending early and frequently, because he had pity on his people and on his living-place;

  2437. 2Ch36:16 But they put shame on the servants of God, making sport of his words and laughing at his prophets, till the wrath of God was moved against his people, till there was no help.

  2438. 2Ch36:20 And all who had not come to death by the sword he took away prisoners to Babylon; and they became servants to him and to his sons till the kingdom of Persia came to power:

  2439. 2Ch36:22 Now in the first year of Cyrus, king of Persia, in order that the words which the Lord had said by the mouth of Jeremiah might come true, the spirit of Cyrus, king of Persia, was moved by the Lord, and he made a public statement and had it given out through all his kingdom and put in writing, saying,

  2440. 2Ch36:23 Cyrus, king of Persia, has said, All the kingdoms of the earth have been given to me by the Lord, the God of heaven; and he has made me responsible for building a house for him in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever there is among you of all his people, may the Lord his God be with him and let him go up.

  2441. Ezr1:1 Now in the first year of Cyrus, king of Persia, in order that the word of the Lord given by the mouth of Jeremiah might come true, the spirit of Cyrus, king of Persia, was moved by the Lord, so that he made a public statement through all his kingdom, and put it in writing, saying,

  2442. Ezr1:2 These are the words of Cyrus, king of Persia: The Lord God of heaven has given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he has made me responsible for building a house for him in Jerusalem, which is in Judah.

  2443. Ezr1:5 Then the heads of families of Judah and Benjamin, with the priests and the Levites, got ready, even all those whose spirits were moved by God to go up and take in hand the building of the Lord's house in Jerusalem.

  2444. Ezr2:63 And the Tirshatha said that they were not to have the most holy things for their food, till a priest came to give decision by Urim and Thummim.

  2445. Ezr2:68 And some of the heads of families, when they came to the house of the Lord which is in Jerusalem, gave freely of their wealth for the building up of the house of God in its place:

  2446. Ezr3:8 Now in the second year of their coming into the house of God in Jerusalem, in the second month, the work was taken in hand by Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua, the son of Jozadak, and the rest of their brothers the priests and the Levites, and all those who had come from the land where they were prisoners to Jerusalem: and they made the Levites, of twenty years old and over, responsible for overseeing the work of the house of the Lord.

  2447. Ezr3:12 But a number of the priests and Levites and the heads of families, old men who had seen the first house, when the base of this house was put down before their eyes, were overcome with weeping; and a number were crying out with joy:

  2448. Ezr4:3 But Zerubbabel and Jeshua and the rest of the heads of families in Israel said to them, You have no part with us in the building of a house for our God; we ourselves will do the work together for the Lord, the God of Israel, as Cyrus, king of Persia, has given us orders.

  2449. Ezr4:4 Then the people of the land made the hands of the people of Judah feeble, troubling them with fear in their building;

  2450. Ezr6:21 And the children of Israel, who had come back, and all those who were joined to them, after separating themselves from the evil ways of the people of the land to become the servants of the Lord, the God of Israel, took food together,

  2451. Ezr7:10 For Ezra had given his mind to learning the law of the Lord and doing it, and to teaching his rules and decisions in Israel.

  2452. Ezr7:28 And has given mercy to me before the king and his government and before all the king's great captains. And I was made strong by the hand of the Lord my God which was on me, and I got together out of Israel chief men to go up with me.

  2453. Ezr8:22 For I would not, for shame, make request to the king for a band of armed men and horsemen to give us help against those who might make attacks on us on the way: for we had said to the king, The hand of our God is on his servants for good, but his power and his wrath are against all those who are turned away from him.

  2454. Ezr8:31 Then we went away from the river of Ahava on the twelfth day of the first month, to go to Jerusalem; and the hand of our God was on us, and he gave us salvation from our haters and those who were waiting to make an attack on us by the way.

  2455. Ezr9:1 Now after these things were done, the captains came to me and said, The people of Israel and the priests and Levites have not kept themselves separate from the people of the lands, but have taken part in the disgusting ways of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.

  2456. Ezr9:3 And hearing this, with signs of grief and pulling out the hair of my head and my chin, I took my seat on the earth deeply troubled.

  2457. Ezr9:5 And at the evening offering, having made myself low before God, I got up, and with signs of grief, falling down on my knees, with my hands stretched out to the Lord my God,

  2458. Ezr9:8 And now for a little time grace has come to us from the Lord our God, to let a small band of us get free and to give us a nail in his holy place, so that our God may give light to our eyes and a measure of new life in our prison chains.

  2459. Ezr9:9 For we are servants; but our God has not been turned away from us in our prison, but has had mercy on us before the eyes of the kings of Persia, to give us new strength to put up again the house of our God and to make fair its waste places, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem.

  2460. Ezr9:11 Which you gave to your servants the prophets, saying, The land into which you are going, to take it for a heritage, is an unclean land, because of the evil lives of the peoples of the land and their disgusting ways, which have made the land unclean from end to end.

  2461. Ezr9:15 O Lord God of Israel, righteousness is yours; we are only a small band which has been kept from death, as at this day: see, we are before you in our sin; for no one may keep his place before you because of this.

  2462. Ezr10:5 Then Ezra got up, and made the chiefs of the priests and the Levites and all Israel take an oath that they would do this. So they took an oath.

  2463. Ezr10:12 Then all the people, answering, said with a loud voice, As you have said, so it is right for us to do.

  2464. Ezr10:13 But the number of people is great, and it is a time of much rain; it is not possible for us to go on waiting outside, and this is not a thing which may be done in one day or even two: for our sin in this business is great.

  2465. Ezr10:16 So those who had come back did so. And Ezra the priest, with certain heads of families, by their fathers' families, all of them by their names, were marked out; and on the first day of the tenth month they took their places to go into the question with care.

  2466. Neh1:4 Then, after hearing these words, for some days I gave myself up to weeping and sorrow, seated on the earth; and taking no food I made prayer to the God of heaven,

  2467. Neh1:6 Let your ear now take note and let your eyes be open, so that you may give ear to the prayer of your servant, which I make before you at this time, day and night, for the children of Israel, your servants, while I put before you the sins of the children of Israel, which we have done against you: truly, I and my father's people are sinners.

  2468. Neh1:7 We have done great wrong against you, and have not kept the orders, the rules, and the decisions, which you gave to your servant Moses.

  2469. Neh1:8 Keep in mind, O Lord, the order you gave your servant Moses, saying, If you do wrong I will send you wandering among the peoples:

  2470. Neh1:11 O Lord, let your ear take note of the prayer of your servant, and of the prayers of your servants, who take delight in worshipping your name: give help, O Lord, to your servant this day, and let him have mercy in the eyes of this man. (Now I was the king's wine-servant.)

  2471. Neh2:12 And in the night I got up, taking with me a small band of men; I said nothing to any man of what God had put into my heart to do for Jerusalem: and I had no beast with me but the one on which I was seated.

  2472. Neh2:14 Then I went on to the door of the fountain and to the king's pool: but there was no room for my beast to get through.

  2473. Neh3:19 And by his side was working Ezer, the son of Jeshua, the ruler of Mizpah, making good another part opposite the way up to the store of arms at the turning of the wall.

  2474. Neh4:6 So we went on building the wall; and all the wall was joined together half-way up: for the people were working hard.

  2475. Neh4:8 And they made designs, all of them together, to come and make an attack on Jerusalem, causing trouble there.

  2476. Neh4:10 And Judah said, The strength of the workmen is giving way, and there is much waste material; it is impossible for us to put up the wall.

  2477. Neh4:21 So we went on with the work: and half of them had spears in their hands from the dawn of the morning till the stars were seen.

  2478. Neh5:12 Then they said, We will give them back, and take nothing for them; we will do as you say. Then I sent for the priests and made them take an oath that they would keep this agreement.

  2479. Neh6:2 Sanballat and Geshem sent to me saying, Come, let us have a meeting in one of the little towns in the lowland of Ono. But their purpose was to do me evil.

  2480. Neh6:3 And I sent men to them saying, I am doing a great work, so that it is not possible for me to come down: is the work to be stopped while I go away from it and come down to you?

  2481. Neh6:6 And in it these words were recorded: It is said among the nations, and Geshem says so, that you and the Jews are hoping to make yourselves free from the king's authority; and that this is why you are building the wall: and they say that it is your purpose to be their king;

  2482. Neh6:7 And that you have prophets preaching about you in Jerusalem, and saying, There is a king in Judah: now an account of these things will be sent to the king. So come now, and let us have a discussion.

  2483. Neh6:8 Then I sent to him, saying, No such things as you say are being done, they are only a fiction you have made up yourself.

  2484. Neh6:9 For they were hoping to put fear in us, saying, Their hands will become feeble and give up the work so that it may not get done. But now, O God, make my hands strong.

  2485. Neh6:10 And I went to the house of Shemaiah, the son of Delaiah, the son of Mehetabel, who was shut up; and he said, Let us have a meeting in the house of God, inside the Temple, and let the doors be shut: for they will come to put you to death; truly, in the night they will come to put you to death.

  2486. Neh7:65 And the Tirshatha said that they were not to have the most holy things for their food, till a priest came to give decision by the Urim and Thummim.

  2487. Neh8:2 And Ezra the priest put the law before the meeting of the people, before the men and women and all those who were able to take it in, on the first day of the seventh month.

  2488. Neh8:5 And Ezra took the book, opening it before the eyes of all the people (for he was higher than the people); and when it was open, all the people got to their feet:

  2489. Neh8:8 And they gave out the words of the book the law of God, clearly, and gave the sense of it, so that their minds were able to take it in.

  2490. Neh8:9 And Nehemiah, who was the Tirshatha, and Ezra, the priest and scribe, and the Levites who were the teachers of the people, said to all the people, This day is holy to the Lord your God; let there be no sorrow or weeping; for all the people were weeping on hearing the words of the law.

  2491. Neh8:11 So the Levites made all the people quiet, saying, Be quiet, for the day is holy; and do not give way to grief.

  2492. Neh8:12 And all the people went away to take food and drink, and to send food to others, and to be glad, because the words which were said to them had been made clear.

  2493. Neh8:15 And that they were to give out an order, and make it public in all their towns and in Jerusalem, saying, Go out to the mountain and get olive branches and branches of field olives and of myrtle, and palm branches and branches of thick trees, to make tents, as it says in the book.

  2494. Neh9:8 You saw that his heart was true to you, and made an agreement with him to give the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Jebusite and the Girgashite, even to give it to his seed, and you have done what you said; for righteousness is yours:

  2495. Neh9:15 And you gave them bread from heaven when they were in need, and made water come out of the rock for their drink, and gave them orders to go in and take for their heritage the land which your hand had been lifted up to give them.

  2496. Neh9:17 And would not do them, and gave no thought to the wonders you had done among them; but made their necks stiff, and turning away from you, made a captain over themselves to take them back to their prison in Egypt: but you are a God of forgiveness, full of grace and pity, slow to wrath and great in mercy, and you did not give them up.

  2497. Neh9:23 And you made their children as great in number as the stars of heaven, and took them into the land, of which you had said to their fathers that they were to go in and take it for themselves.

  2498. Neh9:24 So the children went in and took the land, and you overcame before them the people of the land, the Canaanites, and gave them up into their hands, with their kings and the people of the land, so that they might do with them whatever it was their pleasure to do.

  2499. Neh9:28 But when they had rest, they did evil again before you: so you gave them into the hands of their haters, who had rule over them: but when they came back and made their prayer to you, you gave ear to them from heaven; again and again, in your mercy, you gave them salvation;

  2500. Neh9:36 Now, today, we are servants, and as for the land which you gave to our fathers, so that the produce of it and the good might be theirs, see, we are servants in it:

  2501. Neh10:29 They were united with their brothers, their rulers, and put themselves under a curse and an oath, to keep their steps in the way of God's law, which was given by Moses, the servant of God, and to keep and do all the orders of the Lord, our Lord, and his decisions and his rules;

  2502. Neh10:31 And if the peoples of the lands come to do trade in goods or food on the Sabbath day, that we would do no trade with them on the Sabbath or on a holy day: and that in the seventh year we would take no payment from any debtor.

  2503. Neh10:32 And we made rules for ourselves, taxing ourselves a third of a shekel every year for the upkeep of the house of our God;

  2504. Neh11:1 And the rulers of the people were living in Jerusalem: the rest of the people made selection, by the decision of chance, of one out of every ten to be living in Jerusalem, the holy town; the other nine to go to the other towns.

  2505. Neh11:2 And the people gave a blessing to all the men who were freely offering to take up their places in Jerusalem.

  2506. Neh12:27 And when the time came for the wall of Jerusalem to be made holy, they sent for the Levites out of all their places to come to Jerusalem, to keep the feast with joy, and with praise and melody, with brass and corded instruments of music.

  2507. Neh12:44 And on that day certain men were put over the rooms where the things which had been given were stored, for the lifted offerings and the first-fruits and the tenths, and to take into them the amounts, from the fields of every town, fixed by the law for the priests and the Levites: for Judah was glad on account of the priests and the Levites who were in their places.

  2508. Neh13:3 So after hearing the law, they took out of Israel all the mixed people.

  2509. Neh13:7 And I came to Jerusalem; and it was clear to me what evil Eliashib had done for Tobiah, in making ready for him a room in the buildings of the house of God.

  2510. Neh13:13 And I made controllers over the store-houses, Shelemiah the priest and Zadok the scribe, and of the Levites, Pedaiah: and with them was Hanan, the son of Zaccur the son of Mattaniah: they were taken to be true men and their business was the distribution of these things to their brothers.

  2511. Neh13:15 In those days, I saw in Judah some who were crushing grapes on the Sabbath, and getting in grain and putting it on asses; as well as wine and grapes and figs and all sorts of goods which they took into Jerusalem on the Sabbath day: and I gave witness against them on the day when they were marketing food.

  2512. Neh13:27 Are we then without protest to let you do all this great evil, sinning against our God by taking strange women for your wives?

  2513. Est1:2 That in those days, when King Ahasuerus was ruling in Shushan, his strong town,

  2514. Est1:3 In the third year of his rule he gave a feast to all his captains and his servants; and the captains of the army of Persia and Media, the great men and the rulers of the divisions of his kingdom, were present before him;

  2515. Est1:5 And at the end of that time, the king gave a feast for all the people who were present in Shushan, the king's town, small as well as great, for seven days, in the outer square of the garden of the king's house.

  2516. Est1:8 And the drinking was in keeping with the law; no one was forced: for the king had given orders to all the chief servants of his house to do as was pleasing to every man.

  2517. Est1:12 But when the servants gave her the king's order, Vashti the queen said she would not come: then the king was very angry, and his heart was burning with wrath.

  2518. Est1:15 What is to be done by law to Vashti the queen, because she has not done what King Ahasuerus, by his servants, gave her orders to do?

  2519. Est1:17 For news of what the queen has done will come to the ears of all women, and they will no longer give respect to their husbands when it is said to them, King Ahasuerus gave orders for Vashti the queen to come before him and she came not.

  2520. Est2:1 After these things, when the king's feelings were calmer, the thought of Vashti and what she had done and the order he had made against her, came back to his mind.

  2521. Est2:3 Let the king give authority to certain men in all the divisions of his kingdom, to get together all the fair young virgins and send them to Shushan, the king's town, to the women's house, under the care of Hegai, the king's servant, the keeper of the women: and let the things needed for making them clean be given to them;

  2522. Est2:9 And he was pleased with the girl and was kind to her; and he quickly gave her what was needed for making her clean, and the things which were hers by right, and seven servant-girls who were to be hers from the king's house: and he had her and her servant-girls moved to the best place in the women's part of the house.

  2523. Est2:11 And every day Mordecai took his walk before the square of the women's house, to see how Esther was and what would be done to her.

  2524. Est2:12 Now every girl, when her turn came, had to go in to King Ahasuerus, after undergoing, for a space of twelve months, what was ordered by the law for the women (for this was the time necessary for making them clean, that is, six months with oil of myrrh and six months with sweet perfumes and such things as are needed for making women clean):

  2525. Est2:13 And in this way the girl went in to the king; whatever she had a desire for was given to her to take with her from the women's house into the house of the king.

  2526. Est2:15 Now when the time came for Esther, the daughter of Abihail, his father's brother, whom Mordecai had taken as his daughter, to go in to the king, she made request for nothing but what Hegai, the king's servant and keeper of the women, had given her. And Esther was looked on kindly by all who saw her.

  2527. Est2:21 In those days, while Mordecai was seated at the king's doorway, two of the king's servants, Bigthan and Teresh, keepers of the door, being angry, were looking for a chance to make an attack on King Ahasuerus.

  2528. Est3:4 Now when they had said this to him day after day and he gave no attention, they let Haman have news of it, to see if Mordecai's behaviour would be overlooked: for he had said to them that he was a Jew.

  2529. Est3:6 But it was not enough for him to make an attack on Mordecai only; for they had made clear to him who Mordecai's people were; so Haman made it his purpose to put an end to all the Jews, even Mordecai's people, through all the kingdom of Ahasuerus.

  2530. Est3:11 And the king said to Haman, The money is yours, and the people, to do with them whatever seems right to you.

  2531. Est3:13 And letters were sent by the runners into every division of the kingdom ordering the death and destruction of all Jews, young and old, little children and women, on the same day, even the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, the month Adar, and the taking of all their goods by force.

  2532. Est3:15 The runners went out quickly by the king's order, and a public statement was made in Shushan: and the king and Haman took wine together: but the town of Shushan was troubled.

  2533. Est4:2 And he came even before the king's doorway; for no one might come inside the king's door clothed in haircloth.

  2534. Est4:5 Then Esther sent for Hathach, one of the king's unsexed servants whom he had given her for waiting on her, and she gave him orders to go to Mordecai and see what this was and why it was.

  2535. Est4:7 And Mordecai gave him an account of what had taken place, and of the amount of money which Haman had said he would put into the king's store for the destruction of the Jews.

  2536. Est4:8 And he gave him the copy of the order which had been given out in Shushan for their destruction, ordering him to let Esther see it, and to make it clear to her; and to say to her that she was to go in to the king, requesting his mercy, and making prayer for her people.

  2537. Est4:11 It is common knowledge among all the king's servants and the people of every part of the kingdom, that if anyone, man or woman, comes to the king in his inner room without being sent for, there is only one law for him, that he is to be put to death; only those to whom the king's rod of gold is stretched out may keep their lives: but I have not been sent for to come before the king these thirty days.

  2538. Est5:2 And when the king saw Esther the queen waiting in the inner room, looking kindly on her he put out the rod of gold in his hand to her. So Esther came near and put her fingers on the top of the rod.

  2539. Est5:5 Then the king said, Let Haman come quickly, so that what Esther has said may be done. So the king and Haman came to the feast which Esther had made ready.

  2540. Est5:8 If I have the king's approval, and if it is the king's pleasure to give me my prayer and do my request, let the king and Haman come to the feast which I will make ready for them, and tomorrow I will do as the king has said.

  2541. Est5:9 Then on that day Haman went out full of joy and glad in heart; but when he saw Mordecai in the king's doorway, and he did not get to his feet or give any sign of fear before him, Haman was full of wrath against Mordecai.

  2542. Est6:2 It came out that it was recorded in the book how Mordecai had given word of the designs of Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king's servants, keepers of the door, by whom an attack on the king had been designed.

  2543. Est6:4 Then the king said, Who is in the outer room? Now Haman had come into the outer room to get the king's authority for the hanging of Mordecai on the pillar which he had made ready for him.

  2544. Est6:6 So Haman came in. And the king said to him, What is to be done to the man whom the king has delight in honouring? Then the thought came into Haman's mind, Whom, more than myself, would the king have pleasure in honouring?

  2545. Est6:9 And let the robes and the horse be given to one of the king's most noble captains, so that they may put them on the man whom the king has delight in honouring, and let him go on horseback through the streets of the town, with men crying out before him, So let it be done to the man whom the king has delight in honouring.

  2546. Est6:13 And Haman gave his wife Zeresh and all his friends an account of what had taken place. Then his wise men and his wife Zeresh said to him, If Mordecai, who is starting to get the better of you, is of the seed of the Jews, you will not be able to do anything against him, but you will certainly go down before him.

  2547. Est7:1 So the king and Haman came to take wine with Esther the queen.

  2548. Est7:4 For we are given up, I and my people, to destruction and death and to be cut off. If we had been taken as men-servants and women-servants for a price, I would have said nothing, for our trouble is little in comparison with the king's loss.

  2549. Est7:5 Then King Ahasuerus said to Esther the queen, Who is he and where is he who has had this evil thought in his heart?

  2550. Est7:8 Then the king came back from the garden into the room where they had been drinking; and Haman was stretched out on the seat where Esther was. Then the king said, Is he taking the queen by force before my eyes in my house? And while the words were on the king's lips, they put a cloth over Haman's face.

  2551. Est8:11 In these letters the king gave authority to the Jews in every town to come together and make a fight for their lives, and to send death and destruction on the power of any people in any part of the kingdom attacking them or their children or their women, and to take their goods from them by force,

  2552. Est9:1 Now on the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, when the time came for the king's order to be put into effect, on the very day when the haters of the Jews had been hoping to have rule over them; though the opposite had come about, and the Jews had rule over their haters;

  2553. Est9:2 On that day, the Jews came together in their towns through all the divisions of the kingdom of Ahasuerus, for the purpose of attacking all those who were attempting evil against them: and everyone had to give way before them, for the fear of them had come on all the peoples.

  2554. Est9:13 Then Esther said, If it is the king's pleasure, let authority be given to the Jews in Shushan to do tomorrow as has been done today, and let orders be given for the hanging of Haman's ten sons.

  2555. Est9:16 And the other Jews in every division of the kingdom came together, fighting for their lives, and got salvation from their haters and put seventy-five thousand of them to death; but they did not put a hand on their goods.

  2556. Est9:17 This they did on the thirteenth day of the month Adar; and on the fourteenth day of the same month they took their rest, and made it a day of feasting and joy.

  2557. Est9:18 But the Jews in Shushan came together on the thirteenth and on the fourteenth day of the month; and on the fifteenth day they took their rest, and made it a day of feasting and joy.

  2558. Est9:22 As days on which the Jews had rest from their haters, and the month which for them was turned from sorrow to joy, and from weeping to a good day: and that they were to keep them as days of feasting and joy, of sending offerings to one another and good things to the poor.

  2559. Est9:23 And the Jews gave their word to go on as they had been doing and as Mordecai had given them orders in writing;

  2560. Est9:24 Because Haman, the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, the hater of all the Jews, had made designs for their destruction, attempting to get a decision by Pur (that is, chance) with a view to putting an end to them and cutting them off;

  2561. Est9:25 But when the business was put before the king, he gave orders by letters that the evil design which he had made against the Jews was to be turned against himself; and that he and his sons were to be put to death by hanging.

  2562. Job1:4 His sons regularly went to one another's houses, and every one on his day gave a feast: and at these times they sent for their three sisters to take part in their feasts with them.

  2563. Job1:7 And the Lord said to the Satan, Where do you come from? And the Satan said in answer, From wandering this way and that on the earth, and walking about on it.

  2564. Job2:2 And the Lord said to the Satan, Where do you come from? And the Satan said in answer, From wandering this way and that on the earth, and walking about on it.

  2565. Job2:11 And Job's three friends had word of all this evil which had come on him. And they came every one from his place, Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite. So they came together to a meeting-place, in order that they might go and make clear to Job their grief for him, and give him comfort.

  2566. Job4:2 If one says a word, will it be a weariness to you? but who is able to keep from saying what is in his mind?

  2567. Job4:13 In troubled thoughts from visions of the night, when deep sleep comes on men,

  2568. Job5:7 But trouble is man's fate from birth, as the flames go up from the fire.

  2569. Job5:11 Lifting up those who are low, and putting the sad in a safe place;

  2570. Job5:26 You will come to your last resting-place in full strength, as the grain is taken up to the crushing-floor in its time.

  2571. Job6:2 If only my passion might be measured, and put into the scales against my trouble!

  2572. Job6:7 My soul has no desire for such things, they are as disease in my food.

  2573. Job7:7 O, keep in mind that my life is wind: my eye will never again see good.

  2574. Job7:19 How long will it be before your eyes are turned away from me, so that I may have a minute's breathing-space?

  2575. Job9:3 If a man was desiring to go to law with him, he would not be able to give him an answer to one out of a thousand questions.

  2576. Job9:27 If I say, I will put my grief out of mind, I will let my face be sad no longer and I will be bright;

  2577. Job10:4 Have you eyes of flesh, or do you see as man sees?

  2578. Job13:17 Give ear with care to my words, and keep what I say in your minds.

  2579. Job14:13 If only you would keep me safe in the underworld, putting me in a secret place till your wrath is past, giving me a fixed time when I might come to your memory again!

  2580. Job14:14 If death takes a man, will he come to life again? All the days of my trouble I would be waiting, till the time came for me to be free.

  2581. Job15:22 He has no hope of coming safe out of the dark, and his fate will be the sword;

  2582. Job15:35 Evil has made them with child, and they give birth to trouble; and the fruit of their body is shame for themselves.

  2583. Job19:17 My breath is strange to my wife, and I am disgusting to the offspring of my mother's body.

  2584. Job20:2 For this cause my thoughts are troubling me and driving me on.

  2585. Job20:4 Have you knowledge of this from early times, when man was placed on the earth,

  2586. Job20:22 Even when his wealth is great, he is full of care, for the hand of everyone who is in trouble is turned against him.

  2587. Job21:2 Give attention with care to my words; and let this be your comfort.

  2588. Job22:24 And put your gold in the dust, even your gold of Ophir among the rocks of the valleys;

  2589. Job23:9 I am looking for him on the left hand, but there is no sign of him; and turning to the right, I am not able to see him.

  2590. Job24:15 And the man whose desire is for the wife of another is waiting for the evening, saying, No eye will see me; and he puts a cover on his face. And in the night the thief goes about;

  2591. Job27:1 And Job again took up the word and said,

  2592. Job27:22 God sends his arrows against him without mercy; he goes in flight before his hand.

  2593. Job28:25 When he made a weight for the wind, measuring out the waters;

  2594. Job28:26 When he made a law for the rain, and a way for the thunder-flames;

  2595. Job28:28 And he said to man, Truly the fear of the Lord is wisdom, and to keep from evil is the way to knowledge.

  2596. Job29:1 And Job again took up the word and said,

  2597. Job29:3 When his light was shining over my head, and when I went through the dark by his light.

  2598. Job29:6 When my steps were washed with milk, and rivers of oil were flowing out of the rock for me.

  2599. Job29:7 When I went out of my door to go up to the town, and took my seat in the public place,

  2600. Job30:1 But now those who are younger than I make sport of me; those whose fathers I would not have put with the dogs of my flocks.

  2601. Job30:6 They have to get a resting-place in the hollows of the valleys, in holes of the earth and rocks.

  2602. Job31:30 (For I did not let my mouth give way to sin, in putting a curse on his life;)

  2603. Job31:33 If I kept my evil doings covered, and my sin in the secret of my breast,

  2604. Job32:1 So these three men gave no more answers to Job, because he seemed to himself to be right.

  2605. Job33:15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep comes on men, while they take their rest on their beds;

  2606. Job33:18 To keep back his soul from the underworld, and his life from destruction.

  2607. Job33:24 And if he has mercy on him, and says, Let him not go down to the underworld, I have given the price for his life:

  2608. Job33:28 He kept my soul from the underworld, and my life sees the light in full measure.

  2609. Job34:3 For words are tested by the ear, as food is tasted by the mouth.

  2610. Job34:8 And goes in the company of evil-doers, walking in the way of sinners?

  2611. Job34:9 For he has said, It is no profit to a man to take delight in God.

  2612. Job34:18 He who says to a king, You are an evil-doer; and to rulers, You are sinners;

  2613. Job34:23 For he does not give man a fixed time to come before him to be judged.

  2614. Job34:30 ...

  2615. Job36:20 ...

  2616. Job37:2 Give ear to the rolling noise of his voice; to the hollow sound which goes out of his mouth.

  2617. Job37:7 He puts an end to the work of every man, so that all may see his work.

  2618. Job37:15 Have you knowledge of God's ordering of his works, how he makes the light of his cloud to be seen?

  2619. Job38:4 Where were you when I put the earth on its base? Say, if you have knowledge.

  2620. Job38:7 When the morning stars made songs together, and all the sons of the gods gave cries of joy?

  2621. Job38:8 Or where were you when the sea came to birth, pushing out from its secret place;

  2622. Job38:9 When I made the cloud its robe, and put thick clouds as bands round it,

  2623. Job38:13 So that it might take a grip of the skirts of the earth, shaking all the evil-doers out of it?

  2624. Job38:37 By whose wisdom are the clouds numbered, or the water-skins of the heavens turned to the earth,

  2625. Job39:4 Have you knowledge of the rock-goats? or do you see the roes giving birth to their young?

  2626. Job39:5 Is the number of their months fixed by you? or is the time when they give birth ordered by you?

  2627. Job39:12 Will the ox of the mountains be your servant? or is his night's resting-place by your food-store?

  2628. Job39:24 He is stamping with joy in the valley; he makes sport of fear.

  2629. Job39:35 Will he who is protesting give teaching to the Ruler of all? Let him who has arguments to put forward against God give an answer.

  2630. Job42:8 And now, take seven oxen and seven sheep, and go to my servant Job, and give a burned offering for yourselves, and my servant Job will make prayer for you, that I may not send punishment on you; because you have not said what is right about me, as my servant Job has.

  2631. Psm3:1 <A Psalm. Of David. When he went in flight from Absalom his son.> Lord, how greatly are they increased who make attacks on me! in great numbers they come against me.

  2632. Psm4:1 <To the chief music-maker on corded instruments. A Psalm. Of David.> Give answer to my cry, O God of my righteousness; make me free from my troubles; have mercy on me, and give ear to my prayer.

  2633. Psm4:3 See how the Lord has made great his mercy for me; the Lord will give ear to my cry.

  2634. Psm9:3 When my haters are turned back, they will be broken and overcome before you.

  2635. Psm10:9 He keeps himself in a secret place like a lion in his hole, waiting to put his hands on the poor man, and pulling him into his net.

  2636. Psm10:14 You have seen it; for your eyes are on sorrow and grief, to take it into your hand: the poor man puts his faith in you; you have been the helper of the child who has no father.

  2637. Psm10:18 To give decision for the child without a father and for the broken-hearted, so that the man of the earth may no longer be feared.

  2638. Psm11:2 See, the bows of the evil-doers are bent, they make ready their arrows on the cord, so that they may send them secretly against the upright in heart.

  2639. Psm12:8 The sinners are walking on every side, and evil is honoured among the children of men.

  2640. Psm14:2 The Lord was looking down from heaven on the children of men, to see if there were any who had wisdom, searching after God.

  2641. Psm14:7 May the salvation of Israel come out of Zion! when the fate of his people is changed by the Lord, Jacob will have joy and Israel will be glad.

  2642. Psm16:10 For you will not let my soul be prisoned in the underworld; you will not let your loved one see the place of death.

  2643. Psm17:3 You have put my heart to the test, searching me in the night; you have put me to the test and seen no evil purpose in me; I will keep my mouth from sin.

  2644. Psm17:5 I have kept my feet in your ways, my steps have not been turned away.

  2645. Psm17:11 They have made a circle round our steps: their eyes are fixed on us, forcing us down to the earth;

  2646. Psm17:12 Like a lion desiring its food, and like a young lion waiting in secret places.

  2647. Psm18:38 I will give them wounds, so that they are not able to get up: they are stretched under my feet.

  2648. Psm19:5 Who is like a newly married man coming from his bride-tent, and is glad like a strong runner starting on his way.

  2649. Psm19:11 By them is your servant made conscious of danger, and in keeping them there is great reward.

  2650. Psm20:9 Come to our help, Lord: let the king give ear to our cry.

  2651. Psm22:8 He put his faith in the Lord; let the Lord be his saviour now: let the Lord be his saviour, because he had delight in him.

  2652. Psm27:2 When evil-doers, even my haters, came on me to put an end to me, they were broken and put to shame.

  2653. Psm27:4 One prayer have I made to the Lord, and this is my heart's desire; that I may have a place in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, looking on his glory, and getting wisdom in his Temple.

  2654. Psm27:13 I had almost given up my hope of seeing the blessing of the Lord in the land of the living.

  2655. Psm28:2 Give ear to the voice of my prayer, when I am crying to you, when my hands are lifted up to your holy place.

  2656. Psm30:3 O Lord, you have made my soul come again from the underworld: you have given me life and kept me from going down among the dead.

  2657. Psm30:9 What profit is there in my blood if I go down into the underworld? will the dust give you praise, or be a witness to your help?

  2658. Psm31:13 False statements against me have come to my ears; fear was on every side: they were talking together against me, designing to take away my life.

  2659. Psm31:22 And as for me, I said in my fear, I am cut off from before your eyes; but you gave ear to the voice of my prayer, when my cry went up to you.

  2660. Psm32:6 For this cause let every saint make his prayer to you at a time when you are near: then the overflowing of the great waters will not overtake him.

  2661. Psm32:9 Do not be like the horse or the ass, without sense; ...

  2662. Psm33:14 From his house he keeps watch on all who are living on the earth;

  2663. Psm34:12 What man has a love of life, and a desire that his days may be increased so that he may see good?

  2664. Psm35:3 Take up your spear and keep back my attackers; say to my soul, I am your salvation.

  2665. Psm35:13 But as for me, when they were ill I put on the clothing of sorrow: I went without food and was sad, and my prayer came back again to my heart.

  2666. Psm35:16 Like men of deceit they put me to shame; the voice of their wrath was loud against me.

  2667. Psm36:2 For he takes comfort in the thought that his sin will not be uncovered and hated.

  2668. Psm36:12 There the workers of evil have come down: they have been made low, and will not be lifted up.

  2669. Psm37:14 The evil-doers have taken out their swords, their bows are bent; for crushing the poor, and to put to death those who are upright in their ways.

  2670. Psm37:34 Be waiting for the Lord, and keep his way; and you will be lifted up, and have the land for your heritage: when the evil-doers are cut off, you will see it.

  2671. Psm38:16 I said, Let them not be glad over me; when my foot is moved, let them not be lifted up with pride against me.

  2672. Psm38:20 They give me back evil for good; they are my haters because I go after the thing which is right.

  2673. Psm39:1 <To the chief music-maker. Of Jeduthun. A Psalm. Of David.> I said, I will give attention to my ways, so that my tongue may do no wrong; I will keep my mouth under control, while the sinner is before me.

  2674. Psm40:5 O Lord my God, great are the wonders which you have done in your thought for us; it is not possible to put them out in order before you; when I would give an account of them, their number is greater than I may say.

  2675. Psm40:8 My delight is to do your pleasure, O my God; truly, your law is in my heart.

  2676. Psm40:12 For unnumbered evils are round about me; my sins have overtaken me, so that I am bent down with their weight; they are more than the hairs of my head, my strength is gone because of them.

  2677. Psm40:14 Let those who go after my soul for its destruction have shame and trouble together; let them be turned back and made foolish who take pleasure in my trouble.

  2678. Psm41:6 If one comes to see me, deceit is in his heart; he keeps a store of evil, which he makes public in every place.

  2679. Psm41:8 They say, He has an evil disease, which will not let him go: and now that he is down he will not get up again.

  2680. Psm42:3 My tears have been my food day and night, while they keep saying to me, Where is your God?

  2681. Psm42:10 The cruel words of my haters are like a crushing of my bones; when they say to me every day, Where is your God?

  2682. Psm46:2 For this cause we will have no fear, even though the earth is changed, and though the mountains are moved in the heart of the sea;

  2683. Psm46:5 God has taken his place in her; she will not be moved: he will come to her help at the dawn of morning.

  2684. Psm49:7 Truly, no man may get back his soul for a price, or give to God the payment for himself;

  2685. Psm50:4 His voice will go out to the heavens and to the earth, for the judging of his people:

  2686. Psm50:21 These things have you done, and I said nothing; it seemed to you that I was such a one as yourself; but I will make a protest against you, and put them in order before your eyes.

  2687. Psm51:1 <To the chief music-maker. A Psalm. Of David. When Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had gone in to Bath-sheba.> Have pity on me, O God, in your mercy; out of a full heart, take away my sin.

  2688. Psm51:4 Against you, you only, have I done wrong, working that which is evil in your eyes; so that your words may be seen to be right, and you may be clear when you are judging.

  2689. Psm52:1 <To the chief music-maker. Maschil. Of David. When Doeg the Edomite came to Saul saying, David has come to the house of Ahimelech.> Why do you take pride in wrongdoing, lifting yourself up against the upright man all the day?

  2690. Psm53:2 God was looking down from heaven on the children of men, to see if there were any who had wisdom, searching after God.

  2691. Psm53:6 May the salvation of Israel come out of Zion! When the fate of his people is changed by God, Jacob will have joy, and Israel will be glad.

  2692. Psm54:1 <To the chief music-maker; on Neginoth. Maschil. Of David. When the Ziphites came and said to Saul, Is not David keeping himself secret among us?> Let your name be my salvation, O God; let my cause be judged by your strength.

  2693. Psm55:7 I would go wandering far away, living in the waste land. (Selah.)

  2694. Psm55:22 Put your cares on the Lord, and he will be your support; he will not let the upright man be moved.

  2695. Psm56:1 <To the chief music-maker; put to Jonath elem rehokim. Of David. Michtam. When the Philistines took him in Gath.> Have mercy on me, O God, for man is attempting my destruction; every day he makes cruel attacks against me.

  2696. Psm57:1 <To the chief music-maker; put to Al-tashheth. Michtam. Of David. When he went in flight from Saul, in the hole of the rock.> Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me; for the hope of my soul is in you: I will keep myself safely under the shade of your wings, till these troubles are past.

  2697. Psm58:6 O God, let their teeth be broken in their mouths; let the great teeth of the young lions be pulled out, O Lord.

  2698. Psm59:1 <To the chief music-maker; put to At-tashheth. Michtam. Of David. When Saul sent, and they were watching the house, to put him to death.> Take me out of the hands of the cruel ones, O my God; keep me safe from those who come up against me.

  2699. Psm59:4 For no sin of mine they go quickly and get themselves ready; be awake and come to my help, and see.

  2700. Psm59:5 You, O Lord God of armies, are the God of Israel; come now and give punishment to the nations; have no mercy on any workers of deceit. (Selah.)

  2701. Psm59:15 Let them go wandering up and down in search of food, and be there all night if they have not enough.

  2702. Psm61:2 From the end of the earth will I send up my cry to you, when my heart is overcome: take me to the rock which is over-high for me.

  2703. Psm62:9 Truly men of low birth are nothing, and men of high position are not what they seem; if they are put in the scales together they are less than a breath.

  2704. Psm63:2 To see your power and your glory, as I have seen you in the holy place.

  2705. Psm64:4 So that in secret they may let loose their arrows at the upright, suddenly and unseen.

  2706. Psm64:5 They make themselves strong in an evil purpose; they make holes for secret nets; they say, Who will see it,

  2707. Psm66:10 For you, O God, have put us to the test: testing us by fire like silver.

  2708. Psm67:2 So that men may see your way on the earth, and your salvation among all nations.

  2709. Psm68:7 O God, when you went out before your people, wandering through the waste land; (Selah.)

  2710. Psm68:16 Why are you looking with envy, you high hills, on the hill desired by God as his resting-place? truly, God will make it his house for ever.

  2711. Psm68:18 You have gone up on high, taking your prisoners with you; you have taken offerings from men; the Lord God has taken his place on the seat of his power.

  2712. Psm69:3 I am tired with my crying; my throat is burning: my eyes are wasted with waiting for my God.

  2713. Psm69:20 My heart is broken by bitter words, I am full of grief; I made a search for some to have pity on me, but there was no one; I had no comforter.

  2714. Psm69:23 Let their eyes be blind so that they may not see; let their bodies for ever be shaking.

  2715. Psm71:3 Be my strong Rock, the strong place of my salvation; for you are my Rock, and my safe place.

  2716. Psm71:9 Do not give me up when I am old; be my help even when my strength is gone.

  2717. Psm71:11 Saying, God has given him up; go after him and take him, for he has no helper.

  2718. Psm73:16 When my thoughts were turned to see the reason of this, it was a weariness in my eyes;

  2719. Psm76:8 From heaven you gave your decision; the earth, in its fear, gave no sound,

  2720. Psm77:7 Will the Lord put me away for ever? will he be kind no longer?

  2721. Psm77:9 Has God put away the memory of his pity? are his mercies shut up by his wrath? (Selah.)

  2722. Psm78:10 They were not ruled by God's word, and they would not go in the way of his law;

  2723. Psm78:17 And they went on sinning against him even more, turning away from the Most High in the waste land;

  2724. Psm78:18 Testing God in their hearts, requesting meat for their desire.

  2725. Psm78:19 They said bitter words against God, saying, Is God able to make ready a table in the waste land?

  2726. Psm78:20 See, the rock was cut open by his power, so that the water came rushing out, and overflowing streams; is he able to give us bread? is he able to get meat for his people?

  2727. Psm78:24 And he sent down manna like rain for their food, and gave them the grain of heaven.

  2728. Psm78:71 From looking after the sheep which were giving milk, he took him to give food to Jacob his people, and to Israel his heritage.

  2729. Psm81:5 He gave it to Joseph as a witness, when he went out over the land of Egypt; then the words of a strange tongue were sounding in my ears.

  2730. Psm84:10 For a day in your house is better than a thousand. It is better to be a door-keeper in the house of my God, than to be living in the tents of sin.

  2731. Psm85:9 Truly, his salvation is near to his worshippers; so that glory may be in our land.

  2732. Psm86:11 Make your way clear to me, O Lord; I will go on my way in your faith: let my heart be glad in the fear of your name.

  2733. Psm87:6 The Lord will keep in mind, when he is writing the records of the people, that this man had his birth there. (Selah.)

  2734. Psm89:9 You have rule over the sea in storm; when its waves are troubled, you make them calm.

  2735. Psm89:50 Keep in mind, O Lord, the shame of your servants, and how the bitter words of all the people have come into my heart;

  2736. Psm90:12 So give us knowledge of the number of our days, that we may get a heart of wisdom.

  2737. Psm91:11 For he will give you into the care of his angels to keep you wherever you go.

  2738. Psm92:7 When the sinners come up like the grass, and all the workers of evil do well for themselves, it is so that their end may be eternal destruction.

  2739. Psm96:13 Before the Lord, for he is come; he is come to be the judge of the earth; the earth will be judged in righteousness, and the peoples with unchanging faith.

  2740. Psm98:9 Before the Lord, for he has come as judge of the earth; judging the world in righteousness, and giving true decisions for the peoples.

  2741. Psm101:3 I will not put any evil thing before my eyes; I am against all turning to one side; I will not have it near me.

  2742. Psm101:6 My eyes will be on those of good faith in the land, so that they may be living in my house; he who is walking in the right way will be my servant.

  2743. Psm102:4 My heart is broken; it has become dry and dead like grass, so that I give no thought to food.

  2744. Psm102:13 You will again get up and have mercy on Zion: for the time has come for her to be comforted.

  2745. Psm102:20 Hearing the cry of the prisoner, making free those for whom death is ordered;

  2746. Psm102:22 When the peoples are come together, and the kingdoms, to give worship to the Lord.

  2747. Psm103:11 For as the heaven is high over the earth, so great is his mercy to his worshippers.

  2748. Psm103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has he put our sins from us.

  2749. Psm103:18 If they keep his agreement, and have his laws in mind to do them.

  2750. Psm103:20 Give praise to the Lord, you his angels, who are great in strength, doing his orders, and waiting for his voice.

  2751. Psm104:27 All of them are waiting for you, to give them their food in its time.

  2752. Psm105:11 Saying, To you will I give the land of Canaan, the measured line of your heritage:

  2753. Psm105:14 He would not let anyone do them wrong; he even kept back kings because of them,

  2754. Psm105:19 Till the time when his word came true; he was tested by the word of the Lord.

  2755. Psm105:22 To give his chiefs teaching at his pleasure, and so that his law-givers might get wisdom from him.

  2756. Psm105:25 Their hearts were turned to hate against his people, so that they made secret designs against them.

  2757. Psm105:38 Egypt was glad when they went; for the fear of them had come down on them.

  2758. Psm106:5 So that I may see the well-being of the people of your selection, and have a part in the joy of your nation, and take pride in your heritage.

  2759. Psm106:44 But when their cry came to his ears, he had pity on their trouble:

  2760. Psm107:7 Guiding them in the right way, so that they might come into the town of their resting-place.

  2761. Psm109:10 Let his children be wanderers, looking to others for their food; let them be sent away from the company of their friends.

  2762. Psm109:16 Because he had no mercy, but was cruel to the low and the poor, designing the death of the broken-hearted.

  2763. Psm109:23 I am gone like the shade when it is stretched out: I am forced out of my place like a locust.

  2764. Psm111:6 He has made clear to his people the power of his works, giving them the heritage of the nations.

  2765. Psm113:5 Who is like the Lord our God, who is seated on high,

  2766. Psm113:6 Looking down on the heavens, and on the earth?

  2767. Psm114:1 When Israel came out of Egypt, the children of Jacob from a people whose language was strange to them;

  2768. Psm116:11 Though I said in my fear, All men are false.

  2769. Psm118:8 It is better to have faith in the Lord than to put one's hope in man.

  2770. Psm118:9 It is better to have faith in the Lord than to put one's hope in rulers.

  2771. Psm118:13 I have been hard pushed by you, so that I might have a fall: but the Lord was my helper.

  2772. Psm119:4 You have put your orders into our hearts, so that we might keep them with care.

  2773. Psm119:5 If only my ways were ordered so that I might keep your rules!

  2774. Psm119:7 I will give you praise with an upright heart in learning your right decisions.

  2775. Psm119:9 <BETH> How may a young man make his way clean? by guiding it after your word.

  2776. Psm119:37 Let my eyes be turned away from what is false; give me life in your ways.

  2777. Psm119:57 <CHETH> The Lord is my heritage: I have said that I would be ruled by your words.

  2778. Psm119:60 I was quick to do your orders, and let no time be wasted.

  2779. Psm119:82 My eyes are full of weariness with searching for your word, saying, When will you give me comfort?

  2780. Psm119:106 I have made an oath and kept it, to be guided by your upright decisions.

  2781. Psm119:112 My heart is ever ready to keep your rules, even to the end.

  2782. Psm119:126 It is time, O Lord, for you to let your work be seen; for they have made your law without effect.

  2783. Psm119:148 In the night watches I am awake, so that I may give thought to your saying.

  2784. Psm119:173 Let your hand be near for my help; for I have given my heart to your orders.

  2785. Psm121:8 The Lord will keep watch over your going out and your coming in, from this time and for ever.

  2786. Psm124:2 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men came up against us;

  2787. Psm124:3 They would have made a meal of us while still living, in the heat of their wrath against us:

  2788. Psm126:1 <A Song of the going up.> When the Lord made a change in Zion's fate, we were like men in a dream.

  2789. Psm126:2 Then our mouths were full of laughing, and our tongues gave a glad cry; they said among the nations, The Lord has done great things for them.

  2790. Psm126:3 The Lord has done great things for us; because of which we are glad.

  2791. Psm126:6 Though a man may go out weeping, taking his vessel of seed with him; he will come again in joy, with the corded stems of grain in his arms.

  2792. Psm127:2 It is of no use for you to get up early, and to go late to your rest, with the bread of sorrow for your food; for the Lord gives to his loved ones in sleep.

  2793. Psm133:1 <A Song of the going up. Of David.> See how good and how pleasing it is for brothers to be living together in harmony!

  2794. Psm137:1 By the rivers of Babylon we were seated, weeping at the memory of Zion,

  2795. Psm139:2 You have knowledge when I am seated and when I get up, you see my thoughts from far away.

  2796. Psm140:4 O Lord, take me out of the hands of sinners; keep me safe from the violent man: for they are designing my downfall.

  2797. Psm141:1 <A Psalm. Of David.> Lord, I have made my cry to you; come to me quickly; give ear to my voice, when it goes up to you.

  2798. Psm143:10 Give me teaching so that I may do your pleasure; for you are my God: let your good Spirit be my guide into the land of righteousness.

  2799. Psm149:7 To give the nations the reward of their sins, and the peoples their punishment;

  2800. Psm149:8 To put their kings in chains, and their rulers in bands of iron;

  2801. Psm149:9 To give them the punishment which is in the holy writings: this honour is given to all his saints. Praise be to the Lord.

  2802. Pro1:2 To have knowledge of wise teaching; to be clear about the words of reason:

  2803. Pro1:3 To be trained in the ways of wisdom, in righteousness and judging truly and straight behaviour:

  2804. Pro1:4 To make the simple-minded sharp, and to give the young man knowledge, and serious purpose:

  2805. Pro1:16 For their feet are running after evil, and they are quick to take a man's life.

  2806. Pro1:26 So in the day of your trouble I will be laughing; I will make sport of your fear;

  2807. Pro1:27 When your fear comes on you like a storm, and your trouble like a rushing wind; when pain and sorrow come on you.

  2808. Pro2:8 He keeps watch on the ways which are right, and takes care of those who have the fear of him.

  2809. Pro2:13 Who give up the way of righteousness, to go by dark roads;

  2810. Pro2:14 Who take pleasure in wrongdoing, and have joy in the evil designs of the sinner;

  2811. Pro3:27 Do not keep back good from those who have a right to it, when it is in the power of your hand to do it.

  2812. Pro4:1 Give ear, my sons, to the teaching of a father; give attention so that you may have knowledge:

  2813. Pro4:12 When you go, your way will not be narrow, and in running you will not have a fall.

  2814. Pro5:2 So that you may be ruled by a wise purpose, and your lips may keep knowledge.

  2815. Pro5:11 And you will be full of grief at the end of your life, when your flesh and your body are wasted;

  2816. Pro6:10 A little sleep, a little rest, a little folding of the hands in sleep:

  2817. Pro6:18 A heart full of evil designs, feet which are quick in running after sin;

  2818. Pro6:22 In your walking, it will be your guide; when you are sleeping, it will keep watch over you; when you are awake, it will have talk with you.

  2819. Pro6:24 They will keep you from the evil woman, from the smooth tongue of the strange woman.

  2820. Pro7:5 So that they may keep you from the strange woman, even from her whose words are smooth.

  2821. Pro7:10 And the woman came out to him, in the dress of a loose woman, with a designing heart;

  2822. Pro7:15 So I came out in the hope of meeting you, looking for you with care, and now I have you.

  2823. Pro8:13 The fear of the Lord is seen in hating evil: pride, a high opinion of oneself, the evil way, and the false tongue, are unpleasing to me.

  2824. Pro8:27 When he made ready the heavens I was there: when he put an arch over the face of the deep:

  2825. Pro8:28 When he made strong the skies overhead: when the fountains of the deep were fixed:

  2826. Pro8:29 When he put a limit to the sea, so that the waters might not go against his word: when he put in position the bases of the earth:

  2827. Pro8:34 Happy is the man who gives ear to me, watching at my doors day by day, keeping his place by the pillars of my house.

  2828. Pro9:15 Crying out to those who go by, going straight on their way, she says:

  2829. Pro10:23 It is sport to the foolish man to do evil, but the man of good sense takes delight in wisdom.

  2830. Pro10:25 When the storm-wind is past, the sinner is seen no longer, but the upright man is safe for ever.

  2831. Pro11:10 When things go well for the upright man, all the town is glad; at the death of sinners, there are cries of joy.

  2832. Pro12:6 The words of sinners are destruction for the upright; but the mouth of upright men is their salvation.

  2833. Pro12:7 Evil-doers are overturned and never seen again, but the house of upright men will keep its place.

  2834. Pro13:14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, turning men away from the nets of death.

  2835. Pro13:19 To get one's desire is sweet to the soul, but to give up evil is disgusting to the foolish.

  2836. Pro14:27 The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, by which one may be turned from the nets of death.

  2837. Pro15:21 Foolish behaviour is joy to the unwise; but a man of good sense makes his way straight.

  2838. Pro15:24 Acting wisely is the way of life, guiding a man away from the underworld.

  2839. Pro15:28 The heart of the upright gives thought to his answer; but from the mouth of the evil-doer comes a stream of evil things.

  2840. Pro16:6 By mercy and good faith evil-doing is taken away: and by the fear of the Lord men are turned away from evil.

  2841. Pro16:7 When a man's ways are pleasing to the Lord, he makes even his haters be at peace with him.

  2842. Pro16:12 Evil-doing is disgusting to kings: for the seat of the ruler is based on righteousness.

  2843. Pro16:16 How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! and to get knowledge is more to be desired than silver.

  2844. Pro16:17 The highway of the upright is to be turned away from evil: he who takes care of his way will keep his soul.

  2845. Pro16:30 He whose eyes are shut is a man of twisted purposes, and he who keeps his lips shut tight makes evil come about.

  2846. Pro17:12 It is better to come face to face with a bear whose young ones have been taken away than with a foolish man acting foolishly.

  2847. Pro17:14 The start of fighting is like the letting out of water: so give up before it comes to blows.

  2848. Pro17:16 How will money in the hand of the foolish get him wisdom, seeing that he has no sense?

  2849. Pro17:26 To give punishment to the upright is not good, or to give blows to the noble for their righteousness.

  2850. Pro18:3 When the evil-doer comes, a low opinion comes with him, and with the loss of honour comes shame.

  2851. Pro18:5 To have respect for the person of the evil-doer is not good, or to give a wrong decision against the upright.

  2852. Pro19:8 He who gets wisdom has love for his soul: he who keeps good sense will get what is truly good.

  2853. Pro19:10 Material comfort is not good for the foolish; much less for a servant to be put over rulers.

  2854. Pro19:11 A man's good sense makes him slow to wrath, and the overlooking of wrongdoing is his glory.

  2855. Pro19:27 A son who no longer gives attention to teaching is turned away from the words of knowledge.

  2856. Pro21:3 To do what is right and true is more pleasing to the Lord than an offering.

  2857. Pro21:7 By their violent acts the evil-doers will be pulled away, because they have no desire to do what is right.

  2858. Pro21:9 It is better to be living in an angle of the house-top, than with a bitter-tongued woman in a wide house.

  2859. Pro21:11 When the man of pride undergoes punishment, the simple man gets wisdom; and by watching the wise he gets knowledge.

  2860. Pro21:15 It is a joy to the good man to do right, but it is destruction to the workers of evil.

  2861. Pro21:19 It is better to be living in a waste land, than with a bitter-tongued and angry woman.

  2862. Pro21:25 The desire of the hater of work is death to him, for his hands will do no work.

  2863. Pro23:1 When you take your seat at the feast with a ruler, give thought with care to what is before you;

  2864. Pro23:5 Are your eyes lifted up to it? it is gone: for wealth takes to itself wings, like an eagle in flight up to heaven.

  2865. Pro23:30 Those who are seated late over the wine: those who go looking for mixed wine.

  2866. Pro24:17 Do not be glad at the fall of your hater, and let not your heart have joy at his downfall:

  2867. Pro24:33 A little sleep, a little rest, a little folding of the hands in sleep:

  2868. Pro25:2 It is the glory of God to keep a thing secret: but the glory of kings is to have it searched out.

  2869. Pro25:4 Take away the waste from silver, and a vessel will come out for the silver-worker.

  2870. Pro25:5 Take away evil-doers from before the king, and the seat of his power will be made strong in righteousness.

  2871. Pro25:7 For it is better to have it said to you, Come up here; than for you to be put down in a lower place before the ruler.

  2872. Pro25:8 Do not be quick to go to law about what you have seen, for what will you do in the end, when your neighbour has put you to shame?

  2873. Pro25:24 It is better to be living in an angle of the house-top, than with a bitter-tongued woman in a wide house.

  2874. Pro25:27 It is not good to take much honey: so he who is not looking for honour will be honoured.

  2875. Pro26:2 As the sparrow in her wandering and the swallow in her flight, so the curse does not come without a cause.

  2876. Pro26:8 Giving honour to a foolish man is like attempting to keep a stone fixed in a cord.

  2877. Pro27:23 Take care to have knowledge about the condition of your flocks, looking well after your herds;

  2878. Pro28:9 As for the man whose ear is turned away from hearing the law, even his prayer is disgusting.

  2879. Pro28:12 When the upright do well, there is great glory; but when evil-doers are lifted up, men do not let themselves be seen.

  2880. Pro28:28 When evil-doers are lifted up, men take cover; but when destruction overtakes them, the upright are increased.

  2881. Pro29:2 When the upright have power, the people are glad; when an evil man is ruler, grief comes on the people.

  2882. Pro29:16 When evil men are in power, wrongdoing is increased; but the upright will have pleasure when they see their downfall.

  2883. Pro30:14 There is a generation whose teeth are like swords, their strong teeth like knives, for the destruction of the poor from the earth, and of those who are in need from among men.

  2884. Pro30:21 For three things the earth is moved, and there are four which it will not put up with:

  2885. Pro30:29 There are three things whose steps are good to see, even four whose goings are fair:

  2886. Pro31:4 It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to take wine, or for rulers to say, Where is strong drink?

  2887. Pro31:23 Her husband is a man of note in the public place, when he takes his seat among the responsible men of the land.

  2888. Ecc1:7 All the rivers go down to the sea, but the sea is not full; to the place where the rivers go, there they go again.

  2889. Ecc1:8 All things are full of weariness; man may not give their story: the eye has never enough of its seeing, or the ear of its hearing.

  2890. Ecc1:13 And I gave my heart to searching out in wisdom all things which are done under heaven: it is a hard thing which God has put on the sons of men to do.

  2891. Ecc1:15 That which is bent may not be made straight, and that which is not there may not be numbered.

  2892. Ecc1:16 I said to my heart, See, I have become great and am increased in wisdom more than any who were before me in Jerusalem--yes, my heart has seen much wisdom and knowledge.

  2893. Ecc1:17 And I gave my heart to getting knowledge of wisdom, and of the ways of the foolish. And I saw that this again was desire for wind.

  2894. Ecc2:3 I made a search with my heart to give pleasure to my flesh with wine, still guiding my heart with wisdom, and to go after foolish things, so that I might see what was good for the sons of men to do under the heavens all the days of their life.

  2895. Ecc2:11 Then I saw all the works which my hands had made, and everything I had been working to do; and I saw that all was to no purpose and desire for wind, and there was no profit under the sun.

  2896. Ecc2:12 And I went again in search of wisdom and of foolish ways. What may the man do who comes after the king? The thing which he has done before.

  2897. Ecc2:26 To the man with whom he is pleased, God gives wisdom and knowledge and joy; but to the sinner he gives the work of getting goods together and storing up wealth, to give to him in whom God has pleasure. This again is to no purpose and desire for wind.

  2898. Ecc3:2 A time for birth and a time for death; a time for planting and a time for uprooting;

  2899. Ecc3:3 A time to put to death and a time to make well; a time for pulling down and a time for building up;

  2900. Ecc3:4 A time for weeping and a time for laughing; a time for sorrow and a time for dancing;

  2901. Ecc3:5 A time to take stones away and a time to get stones together; a time for kissing and a time to keep from kissing;

  2902. Ecc3:6 A time for search and a time for loss; a time to keep and a time to give away;

  2903. Ecc3:7 A time for undoing and a time for stitching; a time for keeping quiet and a time for talk;

  2904. Ecc3:8 A time for love and a time for hate; a time for war and a time for peace.

  2905. Ecc3:10 I saw the work which God has put on the sons of man.

  2906. Ecc3:12 I am certain that there is nothing better for a man than to be glad, and to do good while life is in him.

  2907. Ecc3:14 I am certain that whatever God does will be for ever. No addition may be made to it, nothing may be taken from it; and God has done it so that man may be in fear before him.

  2908. Ecc3:18 I said in my heart, It is because of the sons of men, so that God may put them to the test and that they may see themselves as beasts.

  2909. Ecc3:22 So I saw that there is nothing better than for a man to have joy in his work--because that is his reward. Who will make him see what will come after him?

  2910. Ecc4:14 Because out of a prison the young man comes to be king, though by birth he was only a poor man in the kingdom.

  2911. Ecc4:17 Put your feet down with care when you go to the house of God, for it is better to give ear than to make the burned offerings of the foolish, whose knowledge is only of doing evil.

  2912. Ecc5:10 When goods are increased, the number of those who take of them is increased; and what profit has the owner but to see them?

  2913. Ecc5:11 The sleep of a working man is sweet, if he has little food or much; but to him who is full, sleep will not come.

  2914. Ecc5:14 As he came from his mother at birth, so does he go again; he gets from his work no reward which he may take away in his hand.

  2915. Ecc5:17 This is what I have seen: it is good and fair for a man to take meat and drink and to have joy in all his work under the sun, all the days of his life which God has given him; that is his reward.

  2916. Ecc5:18 Every man to whom God has given money and wealth and the power to have pleasure in it and to do his part and have joy in his work: this is given by God.

  2917. Ecc6:2 A man to whom God gives money, wealth, and honour so that he has all his desires but God does not give him the power to have joy of it, and a strange man takes it. This is to no purpose and an evil disease.

  2918. Ecc6:8 What have the wise more than the foolish? and what has the poor man by walking wisely before the living?

  2919. Ecc6:9 What the eyes see is better than the wandering of desire. This is to no purpose and a desire for wind.

  2920. Ecc6:10 That which is, has been named before, and of what man is there is knowledge. He has no power against one stronger than he.

  2921. Ecc7:2 It is better to go to the house of weeping, than to go to the house of feasting; because that is the end of every man, and the living will take it to their hearts.

  2922. Ecc7:5 It is better to take note of the protest of the wise, than for a man to give ear to the song of the foolish.

  2923. Ecc7:9 Be not quick to let your spirit be angry; because wrath is in the heart of the foolish.

  2924. Ecc7:25 I gave my mind to knowledge and to searching for wisdom and the reason of things, and to the discovery that sin is foolish, and that to be foolish is to be without one's senses.

  2925. Ecc7:27 Look! this I have seen, said the Preacher, taking one thing after another to get the true account,

  2926. Ecc8:8 No man has authority over the wind, to keep the wind; or is ruler over the day of his death. In war no man's time is free, and evil will not keep the sinner safe.

  2927. Ecc8:9 All this have I seen, and have given my heart to all the work which is done under the sun: there is a time when man has power over man for his destruction.

  2928. Ecc8:11 Because punishment for an evil work comes not quickly, the minds of the sons of men are fully given to doing evil.

  2929. Ecc8:15 So I gave praise to joy, because there is nothing better for a man to do under the sun than to take meat and drink and be happy; for that will be with him in his work all the days of his life which God gives him under the sun.

  2930. Ecc8:16 When I gave my mind to the knowledge of wisdom and to seeing the business which is done on the earth (and there are those whose eyes see not sleep by day or by night),

  2931. Ecc8:17 Then I saw all the work of God, and that man may not get knowledge of the work which is done under the sun; because, if a man gives hard work to the search he will not get knowledge, and even if the wise man seems to be coming to the end of his search, still he will be without knowledge.

  2932. Ecc9:1 All this I took to heart, and my heart saw it all: that the upright and the wise and their works are in the hand of God; and men may not be certain if it will be love or hate; all is to no purpose before them.

  2933. Ecc9:10 Whatever comes to your hand to do with all your power, do it because there is no work, or thought, or knowledge, or wisdom in the place of the dead to which you are going.

  2934. Ecc9:11 And again I saw under the sun that the reward goes not to him who is quick, or the fruits of war to the strong; and there is no bread for the wise, or wealth for men of learning, or respect for those who have knowledge; but time and chance come to all.

  2935. Ecc10:15 The work of the foolish will be a weariness to him, because he has no knowledge of the way to the town.

  2936. Ecc11:7 Truly the light is sweet, and it is good for the eyes to see the sun.

  2937. Ecc12:10 The Preacher made search for words which were pleasing, but his writing was in words upright and true.

  2938. Ecc12:12 And further, my son, take note of this: of the making of books there is no end, and much learning is a weariness to the flesh.

  2939. Son5:5 I got up to let my loved one in; and my hands were dropping with myrrh, and my fingers with liquid myrrh, on the lock of the door.

  2940. Son6:2 My loved one is gone down into his garden, to the beds of spices, to take food in the gardens, and to get lilies.

  2941. Son6:11 I went down into the garden of nuts to see the green plants of the valley, and to see if the vine was in bud, and the pomegranate-trees were in flower.

  2942. Son8:7 Much water may not put out love, or the deep waters overcome it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would be judged a price not great enough.

  2943. Isa1:12 At whose request do you come before me, making my house unclean with your feet?

  2944. Isa1:13 Give me no more false offerings; the smoke of burning flesh is disgusting to me, so are your new moons and Sabbaths and your holy meetings.

  2945. Isa1:14 Your new moons and your regular feasts are a grief to my soul: they are a weight in my spirit; I am crushed under them.

  2946. Isa2:19 And men will go into cracks of the rocks, and into holes of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and before the glory of his power, when he comes out of his place, shaking the earth with his strength.

  2947. Isa2:21 To take cover in the cracks of the rocks, and in the holes of the hills, for fear of the Lord, and before the glory of his power, when he comes out of his place, shaking the earth with his strength.

  2948. Isa3:7 Then he will say with an oath, I will not be a helper, for in my house there is no bread or clothing: I will not let you make me a ruler of the people.

  2949. Isa3:13 The Lord is ready to take up his cause against his people, and is about to come forward as their judge.

  2950. Isa3:16 Again, the Lord has said, Because the daughters of Zion are full of pride, and go with outstretched necks and wandering eyes, with their foot-chains sounding when they go:

  2951. Isa4:1 And in that day seven women will put their hands on one man, saying, There will be no need for you to give us food or clothing, only let us go under your name, so that our shame may be taken away.

  2952. Isa5:2 And after working the earth of it with a spade, he took away its stones, and put in it a very special vine; and he put up a watchtower in the middle of it, hollowing out in the rock a place for the grape-crushing; and he was hoping that it would give the best grapes, but it gave common grapes.

  2953. Isa5:4 Is there anything which might have been done for my vine-garden which I have not done? why then, when I was hoping for the best grapes did it give me common grapes?

  2954. Isa5:5 And now, this is what I will do to my vine-garden: I will take away the circle of thorns round it, and it will be burned up; its wall will be broken down and the beasts of the field will go through it;

  2955. Isa5:22 Cursed are those who are strong to take wine, and great in making mixed drinks!

  2956. Isa5:24 For this cause, as the waste of the grain is burned up by tongues of fire, and as the dry grass goes down before the flame, so their root will be like the dry stems of grain, and their flower will go up in dust: because they have gone against the law of the Lord of armies, and have given no honour to the word of the Holy One of Israel.

  2957. Isa6:9 And he said, Go, and say to this people, You will go on hearing, but learning nothing; you will go on seeing, but without getting wiser.

  2958. Isa7:2 And word came to the family of David that Aram had put up its tents in Ephraim. And the king's heart, and the hearts of his people, were moved, like the trees of the wood shaking in the wind.

  2959. Isa7:3 Then the Lord said to Isaiah, Go out now, you and Shear-jashub, your son, and you will come across Ahaz at the end of the stream flowing from the higher pool, in the highway of the washerman's field;

  2960. Isa7:6 Let us go up against Judah, troubling her, and forcing our way into her, and let us put up a king in her, even the son of Tabeel:

  2961. Isa7:10 And Isaiah said again to Ahaz,

  2962. Isa7:11 Make a request to the Lord your God for a sign, a sign in the deep places of the underworld, or in the high heavens.

  2963. Isa7:15 Butter and honey will be his food, when he is old enough to make a decision between evil and good.

  2964. Isa7:16 For before the child is old enough to make a decision between evil and good, the land whose two kings you are now fearing will have become waste.

  2965. Isa7:17 The Lord is about to send on you, and on your people, and on your father's house, such a time of trouble as there has not been from the days of the separating of Ephraim from Judah; even the coming of the king of Assyria.

  2966. Isa7:22 And they will give so much milk that he will be able to have butter for his food: for butter and honey will be the food of all who are still living in the land.

  2967. Isa8:4 For before the child is able to say, Father, or, Mother, the wealth of Damascus and the goods of Samaria will be taken away by the king of Assyria.

  2968. Isa8:5 And the Lord said again to me,

  2969. Isa8:11 For the Lord, controlling me with a strong hand, gave me orders not to go in the way of this people, saying,

  2970. Isa9:7 Of the increase of his rule and of peace there will be no end, on the seat of David, and in his kingdom; to make it strong, supporting it with wise decision and righteousness, now and for ever. By the fixed purpose of the Lord of armies this will be done.

  2971. Isa9:9 And all the people will have experience of it, even Ephraim and the men of Samaria, who say in the pride of their uplifted hearts,

  2972. Isa10:2 Who do wrong to the poor in their cause, and take away the right of the crushed among my people, so that they may have the property of widows, and get under their power those who have no father.

  2973. Isa10:6 I will send him against a nation of wrongdoers, and against the people of my wrath I will give him orders, to take their wealth in war, crushing them down like the dust in the streets.

  2974. Isa10:14 And I have put my hands on the wealth of the peoples, as on the place where a bird has put her eggs; and as a man may take the eggs from which a bird has gone, so I have taken all the earth for myself: and not a wing was moved, and not a mouth gave out a sound.

  2975. Isa10:18 And he will put an end to the glory of his woods and of his planted fields, soul and body together; and it will be as when a man is wasted by disease.

  2976. Isa10:32 This very day he is stopping at Nob; he is shaking his hand against the mountain of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.

  2977. Isa11:11 And in that day the hand of the Lord will be stretched out the second time to get back the rest of his people, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the sea-lands.

  2978. Isa11:16 And there will be a highway for the rest of his people from Assyria; as there was for Israel in the day when he came up out of the land of Egypt.

  2979. Isa13:9 See, the day of the Lord is coming, cruel, with wrath and burning passion: to make the land a waste, driving the sinners in it to destruction.

  2980. Isa13:10 For the stars of heaven and its bright armies will not give their light: the sun will be made dark in his journey through the heaven, and the moon will keep back her light.

  2981. Isa13:22 And wolves will be answering one another in their towers, and jackals in their houses of pleasure: her time is near, and her days of power will quickly be ended.

  2982. Isa14:9 The underworld is moved at your coming: the shades of the dead are awake before you, even the strong ones of the earth; all the kings of the world have got up from their seats.

  2983. Isa14:24 The Lord has taken an oath, saying, My design will certainly come about, and my purpose will be effected:

  2984. Isa14:25 To let the Assyrian be broken in my land, and crushed under foot on my mountains: there will his yoke be taken away from them, and his rule over them come to an end.

  2985. Isa16:14 But now the Lord has said, In three years, the years of a servant working for payment, the glory of Moab, all that great people, will be turned to shame, and the rest of Moab will be very small and without honour.

  2986. Isa17:5 And it will be like a man cutting the growth of his grain, pulling together the heads of the grain with his arm; even as when they get in the grain in the valley of Rephaim.

  2987. Isa17:12 Ah! the voice of peoples, like the loud sounding of the seas, and the thundering of great nations rushing on like the bursting out of waters!

  2988. Isa18:3 All you peoples of the world, and you who are living on the earth, when a flag is lifted up on the mountains, give attention; and when the horn is sounded, give ear.

  2989. Isa18:5 For before the time of getting in the grapes, after the opening of the bud, when the flower has become a grape ready for crushing, he will take away the small branches with knives, cutting down and taking away the wide-stretching branches.

  2990. Isa19:22 And the Lord will send punishment on Egypt, and will make them well again; and when they come back to the Lord he will give ear to their prayer and take away their disease.

  2991. Isa19:25 Because of the blessing of the Lord of armies which he has given them, saying, A blessing on Egypt my people, and on Assyria the work of my hands, and on Israel my heritage.

  2992. Isa20:1 In the year when the Tartan came to Ashdod, sent by Sargon, king of Assyria, and made war against it and took it;

  2993. Isa20:2 At that time the word of the Lord came to Isaiah, the son of Amoz, saying, Go, and take off your robe, and your shoes from your feet; and he did so, walking unclothed and without shoes on his feet.

  2994. Isa21:1 The word about the waste land. As storm-winds in the South go rushing through, it comes from the waste land, from the land greatly to be feared.

  2995. Isa21:3 For this cause I am full of bitter grief; pains like the pains of a woman in childbirth have come on me: I am bent down with sorrow at what comes to my ears; I am shocked by what I see.

  2996. Isa21:5 They make ready the table, they put down the covers, they take food and drink. Up! you captains; put oil on your breastplates.

  2997. Isa21:14 Give water to him who is in need of water; give bread, O men of the land of Tema, to those in flight.

  2998. Isa22:7 And your most fertile valleys were full of war-carriages, and the horsemen took up their positions in front of the town.

  2999. Isa22:12 And in that day the Lord, the Lord of armies, was looking for weeping, and cries of sorrow, cutting off of the hair, and putting on the clothing of grief:

  3000. Isa22:13 But in place of these there was joy and delight, oxen and sheep were being made ready for food, there was feasting and drinking: men said, Now is the time for food and wine, for tomorrow death comes.

  3001. Isa22:17 See, O strong man, the Lord will send you violently away, gripping you with force,

  3002. Isa22:18 Twisting you round and round like a ball he will send you out into a wide country: there you will come to your end, and there will be the carriages of your pride, O shame of your lord's house!

  3003. Isa23:1 The word about Tyre. Let a cry of sorrow go up, O ships of Tarshish, because your strong place is made waste; on the way back from the land of Kittim the news is given to them.

  3004. Isa23:4 Be shamed, O Zidon: for the sea, the strong place of the sea has said, I have not been with child, or given birth; I have not taken care of young men, or kept watch over the growth of virgins.

  3005. Isa23:7 Is this the town which was full of joy, whose start goes back to times long past, whose wanderings took her into far-off countries?

  3006. Isa23:12 And he said, There is no more joy for you, O crushed virgin daughter of Zidon: up! go over to Kittim; even there you will have no rest.

  3007. Isa23:18 And her goods and her trade will be holy to the Lord: they will not be kept back or stored up; for her produce will be for those living in the Lord's land, to give them food for their needs, and fair clothing.

  3008. Isa24:10 The town is waste and broken down: every house is shut up, so that no man may come in.

  3009. Isa24:19 The earth is completely broken, it is parted in two, it is violently moved.

  3010. Isa24:20 The earth will be moving uncertainly, like a man overcome by drink; it will be shaking like a tent; and the weight of its sin will be on it, crushing it down so that it will not get up again.

  3011. Isa25:11 And if he puts out his hands, like a man stretching out his hands in swimming, the Lord will make low his pride, however expert his designs.

  3012. Isa26:17 As a woman with child, whose time is near, is troubled, crying out in her pain; so have we been before you, O Lord.

  3013. Isa26:21 For the Lord is coming out of his place to send punishment on the people of the earth for their evil-doing: the earth will let the blood drained out on her be seen, and will keep her dead covered no longer.

  3014. Isa27:9 So by this will the sin of Jacob be covered, and this is all the fruit of taking away his punishment; when all the stones of the altar are crushed together, so that the wood pillars and the sun-images will not be put up again.

  3015. Isa27:11 When its branches are dry they will be broken off; the women will come and put fire to them: for it is a foolish people; for this cause he who made them will have no mercy on them, and he whose work they are will not have pity on them.

  3016. Isa28:12 To whom he said, This is the rest, give rest to him who is tired; and by this you may get new strength; but they would not give ear.

  3017. Isa28:19 Whenever they come through they will overtake you; for they will come through morning after morning, by day and by night: and the news will be nothing but fear.

  3018. Isa28:21 For the Lord will come up as on Mount Perazim, he will be moved to wrath as in the valley of Gibeon; so that he may do his work--strange is his work; and give effect to his act--unnatural is his act.

  3019. Isa28:24 Is the ploughman for ever ploughing? does he not get the earth ready and broken up for the seed?

  3020. Isa28:28 Is the grain for bread crushed? He does not go on crushing it for ever, but he lets his cart-wheels and his horses go over it without crushing it.

  3021. Isa29:11 And the vision of all this has become to you like the words of a book which is shut, which men give to one who has knowledge of writing, saying, Make clear to us what is in the book: and he says, I am not able to, for the book is shut:

  3022. Isa29:12 And they give it to one without learning, saying, Make clear to us what is in the book: and he says, I have no knowledge of writing.

  3023. Isa29:16 You are turning things upside down! Is the wet earth the same to you as the one who is forming it? will the thing made say of him who made it, He made me not: or the thing formed say of him who gave it form, He has no knowledge?

  3024. Isa29:23 But when they, the children of Jacob, see the work of my hands among them, they will give honour to my name; yes, they will give honour to the Holy One of Jacob, and go in fear of the God of Israel.

  3025. Isa30:1 Ho! uncontrolled children, says the Lord, who give effect to a purpose which is not mine, and who make an agreement, but not by my spirit, increasing their sin:

  3026. Isa30:2 Who make a move to go down into Egypt, without authority from me; who are looking to the strength of Pharaoh for help, and whose hope is in the shade of Egypt.

  3027. Isa30:9 For they are an uncontrolled people, false-hearted, who will not give ear to the teaching of the Lord:

  3028. Isa30:12 For this cause the Holy One of Israel says, Because you will not give ear to this word, and are looking for help in ways of deceit and evil, and are putting your hope in them:

  3029. Isa30:14 And he will let it be broken as a potter's vessel is broken: it will be smashed to bits without mercy; so that there will not be a bit in which one may take fire from the fireplace, or water from the spring.

  3030. Isa30:18 For this cause the Lord will be waiting, so that he may be kind to you; and he will be lifted up, so that he may have mercy on you; for the Lord is a God of righteousness: there is a blessing on all whose hope is in him.

  3031. Isa30:19 O people, living in Zion, at Jerusalem, your weeping will be ended; he will certainly have mercy on you at the sound of your cry; when it comes to his ear, he will give you an answer.

  3032. Isa30:21 And at your back, when you are turning to the right hand or to the left, a voice will be sounding in your ears, saying, This is the way in which you are to go.

  3033. Isa30:25 And there will be rivers and streams of water on every tall mountain and on every high hill, in the day when great numbers are put to the sword, when the towers come down.

  3034. Isa30:26 And the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be seven times greater, as the light of seven days, in the day when the Lord puts oil on the wounds of his people, and makes them well from the blows they have undergone.

  3035. Isa30:29 You will have a song, as in the night when a holy feast is kept; and you will be glad in heart, as when they go with music of the pipe to the mountain of the Lord, the Rock of Israel.

  3036. Isa31:4 For the Lord has said to me, As a lion, or a young lion, makes an angry noise over his food, and if a band of herdsmen come out against him, he will not be in fear of their voices, or give up his food for their noise: so the Lord of armies will come down to make war against Mount Zion and its hill.

  3037. Isa31:5 Like birds with outstretched wings, so will the Lord of armies be a cover to Jerusalem; he will be a cover and salvation for it, going over it he will keep it from danger.

  3038. Isa32:6 For the foolish man will say foolish things, having evil thoughts in his heart, working what is unclean, and talking falsely about the Lord, to keep food from him who is in need of it, and water from him whose soul is desiring it.

  3039. Isa32:11 Be shaking with fear, you women who are living in comfort; be troubled, you who have no fear of danger: take off your robes and put on clothing of grief.

  3040. Isa32:19 But the tall trees will come down with a great fall, and the town will be low in a low place.

  3041. Isa33:1 Ho! you who make waste those who did not make you waste; acting falsely to those who were not false to you. When you have come to an end of wasting, you will be made waste, and after your false acts, they will do the same to you.

  3042. Isa33:15 He whose ways are true, and whose words are upright; he who gives no thought to the profits of false acts, whose hands have not taken rewards, who will have no part in putting men to death, and whose eyes are shut against evil;

  3043. Isa33:19 Never again will you see the cruel people, a people whose tongue has no sense for you; whose language is strange to you.

  3044. Isa34:1 Come near, you nations, and give ear; take note, you peoples: let the earth and everything in it give ear; the world and all those living in it.

  3045. Isa34:4 And the heavens will be rolled together like the roll of a book: and all their army will be gone, like a dead leaf from the vine, or a dry fruit from the fig-tree.

  3046. Isa35:2 It will be flowering like the rose; it will be full of delight and songs; the glory of Lebanon will be given to it; the pride of Carmel and Sharon: they will see the glory of the Lord, the power of our God.

  3047. Isa36:8 And now, take a chance with my master, the king of Assyria, and I will give you two thousand horses, if you are able to put horsemen on them.

  3048. Isa36:12 But the Rab-shakeh said, Is it to your master or to you that my master has sent me to say these words? has he not sent me to the men seated on the wall? for they are the people who will be short of food with you when the town is shut in.

  3049. Isa36:15 And do not let Hezekiah make you put your faith in the Lord, saying, The Lord will certainly keep us safe, and this town will not be given into the hands of the king of Assyria.

  3050. Isa36:17 Till I come and take you away to a land like yours, a land of grain and wine, a land of bread and vine-gardens.

  3051. Isa36:18 Give no attention to Hezekiah when he says to you, The Lord will keep us safe. Has any one of the gods of the nations kept his land from falling into the hands of the king of Assyria?

  3052. Isa36:21 But they kept quiet and gave him no answer: for the king's order was, Give him no answer.

  3053. Isa37:1 And on hearing it Hezekiah took off his robe and put on haircloth and went into the house of the Lord.

  3054. Isa37:3 And they said to him, Hezekiah says, This day is a day of trouble and punishment and shame: for the children are ready to come to birth, but there is no strength to give birth to them.

  3055. Isa37:9 And when news came to him that Tirhakah, king of Ethiopia, had made an attack on him, ... And he sent representatives to Hezekiah, king of Judah, saying,

  3056. Isa37:10 This is what you are to say to Hezekiah, king of Judah: Let not your God, in whom is your faith, give you a false hope, saying, Jerusalem will not be given into the hands of the king of Assyria.

  3057. Isa37:15 And he made prayer to the Lord, saying,

  3058. Isa37:19 And have given their gods to the fire: for they were no gods, but wood and stone, the work of men's hands; so they have given them to destruction.

  3059. Isa37:21 Then Isaiah, the son of Amoz, sent to Hezekiah, saying, The Lord, the God of Israel, says, The prayer you have made to me against Sennacherib, king of Assyria, has come to my ears.

  3060. Isa37:28 But I have knowledge of your getting up and your resting, of your going out and your coming in.

  3061. Isa37:30 And this will be the sign to you: you will get your food this year from what comes up of itself, and in the second year from the produce of the same; and in the third year you will put in your seed, and get in the grain, and make vine-gardens, and take of their fruit.

  3062. Isa38:1 In those days Hezekiah was ill and near death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, came to him, and said to him, The Lord says, Put your house in order; for your death is near.

  3063. Isa38:4 Then the word of the Lord came to Isaiah, saying,

  3064. Isa38:5 Go to Hezekiah, and say, The Lord, the God of David, your father, says, Your prayer has come to my ears, and I have seen your weeping: see, I will give you fifteen more years of life.

  3065. Isa38:9 The writing of Hezekiah, king of Judah, after he had been ill, and had got better from his disease.

  3066. Isa40:22 It is he who is seated over the arch of the earth, and the people in it are as small as locusts; by him the heavens are stretched out like an arch, and made ready like a tent for a living-place.

  3067. Isa40:30 Even the young men will become feeble and tired, and the best of them will come to the end of his strength;

  3068. Isa42:7 To give eyes to the blind, to make free the prisoners from the prison, to let out those who are shut up in the dark.

  3069. Isa42:18 Give ear, you whose ears are shut; and let your eyes be open, you blind, so that you may see.

  3070. Isa42:20 Seeing much, but keeping nothing in mind; his ears are open, but there is no hearing.

  3071. Isa42:24 Who gave up Jacob to those who took away his goods, and Israel to his attackers? Did not the Lord? he against whom they did wrong, and in whose ways they would not go, turning away from his teaching.

  3072. Isa44:7 If there is one like me, let him come forward and say it, let him make it clear and put it in order before me: who has made clear in the past the things to come? let him make clear the future to me.

  3073. Isa44:13 The woodworker is measuring out the wood with his line, marking it out with his pencil: after smoothing it with his plane, and making circles on it with his instrument, he gives it the form and glory of a man, so that it may be placed in the house.

  3074. Isa44:14 He has cedars cut down for himself, he takes an oak and lets it get strong among the trees of the wood; he has an ash-tree planted, and the rain gives it growth.

  3075. Isa44:18 They have no knowledge or wisdom; for he has put a veil over their eyes, so that they may not see; and on their hearts, so that they may not give attention.

  3076. Isa44:19 And no one takes note, no one has enough knowledge or wisdom to say, I have put part of it in the fire, and made bread on it; I have had a meal of the flesh cooked with it: and am I now to make the rest of it into a false god? am I to go down on my face before a bit of wood?

  3077. Isa44:28 Who says of Cyrus, He will take care of my sheep, and will do all my pleasure: who says of Jerusalem, I will give the word for your building; and of the Temple, Your bases will be put in place.

  3078. Isa45:1 The Lord says to the man of his selection, to Cyrus, whom I have taken by the right hand, putting down nations before him, and taking away the arms of kings; making the doors open before him, so that the ways into the towns may not be shut;

  3079. Isa45:18 For this is the word of the Lord who made the heavens; he is God; the maker and designer of the earth; who made it not to be a waste, but as a living-place for man: I am the Lord, and there is no other.

  3080. Isa47:14 Truly, they have become like dry stems, they have been burned in the fire; they are not able to keep themselves safe from the power of the flame: it is not a coal for warming them, or a fire by which a man may be seated.

  3081. Isa48:8 Truly you had no word of them, no knowledge of them; no news of them in the past had come to your ears; because I saw how false was your behaviour, and that your heart was turned against me from your earliest days.

  3082. Isa48:16 Come near to me, and give ear to this; from the start I did not keep it secret; from the time of its coming into existence I was there: and now the Lord God has sent me, and given me his spirit.

  3083. Isa49:6 It is not enough for one who is my servant to put the tribes of Jacob again in their place, and to get back those of Israel who have been sent away: my purpose is to give you as a light to the nations, so that you may be my salvation to the end of the earth.

  3084. Isa49:9 Saying to those who are in chains, Go free; to those who are in the dark, Come out into the light. They will get food by the way wherever they go, and have grass-lands on all the dry mountain-tops.

  3085. Isa50:2 Why, then, when I came, was there no man? and no one to give answer to my voice? has my hand become feeble, so that it is unable to take up your cause? or have I no power to make you free? See, at my word the sea becomes dry, I make the rivers a waste land: their fish are dead for need of water, and make an evil smell.

  3086. Isa50:4 The Lord God has given me the tongue of those who are experienced, so that I may be able to give the word a special sense for the feeble: every morning my ear is open to his teaching, like those who are experienced:

  3087. Isa51:10 Did you not make the sea dry, the waters of the great deep? did you not make the deep waters of the sea a way for the Lord's people to go through?

  3088. Isa51:16 And I have put my words in your mouth, covering you with the shade of my hand, stretching out the heavens, and placing the earth on its base, and saying to Zion, You are my people.

  3089. Isa51:22 This is the word of the Lord your master, even your God who takes up the cause of his people: See, I have taken out of your hand the cup which overcomes, even the cup of my wrath; it will not again be given to you:

  3090. Isa52:4 For the Lord God says, My people went down at first into Egypt, to get a place for themselves there: and the Assyrian put a cruel yoke on them without cause.

  3091. Isa52:8 The voice of your watchmen! their voices are loud in song together; for they will see him, eye to eye, when the Lord comes back to Zion.

  3092. Isa54:9 For this is like the days of Noah to me: for as I took an oath that the waters of Noah would never again go over the earth, so have I taken an oath that I will not again be angry with you, or say bitter words to you.

  3093. Isa54:15 See, they may be moved to war, but not by my authority: all those who come together to make an attack on you, will be broken against you.

  3094. Isa55:2 Why do you give your money for what is not bread, and the fruit of your work for what will not give you pleasure? Give ear to me, so that your food may be good, and you may have the best in full measure.

  3095. Isa55:7 Let the sinner give up his way, and the evil-doer his purpose: and let him come back to the Lord, and he will have mercy on him; and to our God, for there is full forgiveness with him.

  3096. Isa56:1 The Lord says, Let your way of life be upright, and let your behaviour be rightly ordered: for my salvation is near, and my righteousness will quickly be seen.

  3097. Isa56:2 Happy is the man who does this, and the son of man whose behaviour is so ordered; who keeps the Sabbath holy, and his hand from doing any evil.

  3098. Isa56:3 And let not the man from a strange country, who has been joined to the Lord, say, The Lord will certainly put a division between me and his people: and let not the unsexed man say, See, I am a dry tree.

  3099. Isa56:6 And as for those from a strange country, who are joined to the Lord, to give worship to him and honour to his name, to be his servants, even everyone who keeps the Sabbath holy, and keeps his agreement with me:

  3100. Isa56:9 All you beasts of the field, come together for your meat, even all you beasts of the wood.

  3101. Isa56:10 His watchmen are blind, they are all without knowledge; they are all dogs without tongues, unable to make a sound; stretched out dreaming, loving sleep.

  3102. Isa57:7 You have put your bed on a high mountain: there you went up to make your offering.

  3103. Isa57:13 Your false gods will not keep you safe in answer to your cry; but the wind will take them, they will be gone like a breath: but he who puts his hope in me will take the land, and will have my holy mountain as his heritage.

  3104. Isa58:5 Have I given orders for such a day as this? a day for keeping yourselves from pleasure? is it only a question of the bent head, of putting on haircloth, and being seated in the dust? is this what seems to you a holy day, well-pleasing to the Lord?

  3105. Isa58:7 Is it not to give your bread to those in need, and to let the poor who have no resting-place come into your house? to put a robe on the unclothed one when you see him, and not to keep your eyes shut for fear of seeing his flesh?

  3106. Isa58:9 Then at the sound of your voice, the Lord will give an answer; at your cry he will say, Here am I. If you take away from among you the yoke, the putting out of the finger of shame, and the evil word;

  3107. Isa58:12 And your sons will be building again the old waste places: you will make strong the bases of old generations: and you will be named, He who puts up the broken walls, and, He who makes ready the ways for use.

  3108. Isa58:13 If you keep the Sabbath with care, not doing your business on my holy day; and if the Sabbath seems to you a delight, and the new moon of the Lord a thing to be honoured; and if you give respect to him by not doing your business, or going after your pleasure, or saying unholy words;

  3109. Isa59:1 Truly, the Lord's hand has not become short, so that he is unable to give salvation; and his ear is not shut from hearing:

  3110. Isa59:2 But your sins have come between you and your God, and by your evil doings his face has been veiled from you, so that he will give you no answer.

  3111. Isa59:4 No one puts forward an upright cause, or gives a true decision: their hope is in deceit, and their words are false; they are with child with sin, and give birth to evil.

  3112. Isa59:7 Their feet go quickly to evil, and they take delight in the death of the upright; their thoughts are thoughts of sin; wasting and destruction are in their ways.

  3113. Isa59:11 We make noises of grief, like bears, and sad sounds like doves: we are looking for our right, but it is not there; for salvation, but it is far from us.

  3114. Isa59:13 We have gone against the Lord, and been false to him, turning away from our God, our words have been uncontrolled, and in our hearts are thoughts of deceit.

  3115. Isa59:14 And the right is turned back, and righteousness is far away: for good faith is not to be seen in the public places, and upright behaviour may not come into the town.

  3116. Isa60:12 For the nation or kingdom which will not be your servant will come to destruction; such nations will be completely waste.

  3117. Isa60:14 And the sons of those who were cruel to you will come before you with bent heads; and those who made sport of you will go down on their faces at your feet; and you will be named, The Town of the Lord, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

  3118. Isa60:15 And though you were turned away from, and hated, and had no helper, I will make you a pride for ever, a joy from generation to generation.

  3119. Isa61:1 The spirit of the Lord is on me, because I am marked out by him to give good news to the poor; he has sent me to make the broken-hearted well, to say that the prisoners will be made free, and that those in chains will see the light again;

  3120. Isa61:2 To give knowledge that the year of the Lord's good pleasure has come, and the day of punishment from our God; to give comfort to all who are sad;

  3121. Isa61:3 To give them a fair head-dress in place of dust, the oil of joy in place of the clothing of grief, praise in place of sorrow; so that they may be named trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, and so that he may have glory.

  3122. Isa61:10 I will be full of joy in the Lord, my soul will be glad in my God; for he has put on me the clothing of salvation, covering me with the robe of righteousness, as the husband puts on a fair head-dress, and the bride makes herself beautiful with jewels.

  3123. Isa63:12 He who made the arm of his glory go at the right hand of Moses, by whom the waters were parted before them, to make himself an eternal name;

  3124. Isa63:14 Like the cattle which go down into the valley, they went without falling, the spirit of the Lord guiding them: so you went before your people, to make yourself a great name.

  3125. Isa64:2 While you do acts of power for which we are not looking, and which have not come to the ears of men in the past.

  3126. Isa64:3 The ear has not had news of, or the eye seen, ... any God but you, working for the man who is waiting for him.

  3127. Jer1:2 To whom the word of the Lord came in the days of Josiah, the son of Amon, king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his rule.

  3128. Jer1:3 And it came again in the days of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, up to the eleventh year of Zedekiah, the son of Josiah, king of Judah; till Jerusalem was taken away in the fifth month.

  3129. Jer1:4 Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3130. Jer1:10 See, this day I have put you over the nations and over the kingdoms, for uprooting and smashing down, for destruction and overturning, for building up and planting.

  3131. Jer1:11 Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Jeremiah, what do you see? And I said, I see a branch of an almond-tree.

  3132. Jer1:12 Then the Lord said to me, You have seen well: for I keep watch over my word to give effect to it.

  3133. Jer1:13 And the word of the Lord came to me a second time, saying, What do you see? And I said, I see a boiling pot, and its face is from the north.

  3134. Jer2:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3135. Jer2:2 Go and say in the ears of Jerusalem, The Lord says, I still keep the memory of your kind heart when you were young, and your love when you became my bride; how you went after me in the waste of sand, in an unplanted land.

  3136. Jer2:7 And I took you into a fertile land, where you were living on its fruit and its wealth; but when you came in, you made my land unclean, and made my heritage a disgusting thing.

  3137. Jer2:13 For my people have done two evils; they have given up me, the fountain of living waters, and have made for themselves water-holes, cut out from the rock, broken water-holes, of no use for storing water.

  3138. Jer2:17 Has not this come on you because you have given up the Lord your God, who was your guide by the way?

  3139. Jer2:18 And now, what have you to do on the way to Egypt, to get your drink from the waters of the Nile? or what have you to do on the way to Assyria, to get your drink from the waters of the River?

  3140. Jer2:19 The evil you yourselves have done will be your punishment, your errors will be your judge: be certain then, and see that it is an evil and a bitter thing to give up the Lord your God, and no longer to be moved by fear of me, says the Lord, the Lord of armies.

  3141. Jer2:35 And still you said, I have done no wrong; truly, his wrath is turned away from me. See, I will take up the cause against you, because you say, I have done no wrong.

  3142. Jer3:1 They say, If a man puts away his wife and she goes from him and becomes another man's, will he go back to her again? will not that land have been made unclean? but though you have been acting like a loose woman with a number of lovers, will you now come back to me? says the Lord.

  3143. Jer3:7 And I said, After she has done all these things she will come back to me; but she did not. And her false sister Judah saw it.

  3144. Jer3:12 Go, and give out these words to the north, and say, Come back, O Israel, though you have been turned away from me, says the Lord; my face will not be against you in wrath: for I am full of mercy, says the Lord, I will not be angry for ever.

  3145. Jer4:7 A lion has gone up from his secret place in the woods, and one who makes waste the nations is on his way; he has gone out from his place, to make your land unpeopled, so that your towns will be made waste, with no man living in them.

  3146. Jer4:10 Then said I, Ah, Lord God! your words were not true when you said to this people and to Jerusalem, You will have peace; when the sword has come even to the soul.

  3147. Jer4:11 At that time it will be said to this people and to Jerusalem, A burning wind from the open hilltops in the waste land is blowing on the daughter of my people, not for separating or cleaning the grain;

  3148. Jer5:3 O Lord, do not your eyes see good faith? you have given them punishment, but they were not troubled; you have sent destruction on them, but they did not take your teaching to heart: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they would not come back.

  3149. Jer5:11 For the people of Israel and the people of Judah have been very false to me, says the Lord.

  3150. Jer5:20 Say this openly in Jacob and give it out in Judah, saying,

  3151. Jer5:26 For there are sinners among my people: they keep watch, like men watching for birds; they put a net and take men in it.

  3152. Jer6:11 For this reason I am full of the wrath of the Lord, I am tired of keeping it in: may it be let loose on the children in the street, and on the band of the young men together: for even the husband with his wife will be taken, the old man with him who is full of days.

  3153. Jer6:14 And they have made little of the wounds of my people, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

  3154. Jer6:15 Let them be put to shame because they have done disgusting things. They had no shame, they were not able to become red with shame: so they will come down with those who are falling: when my punishment comes on them, they will be made low, says the Lord.

  3155. Jer6:29 The blower is blowing strongly, the lead is burned away in the fire: they go on heating the metal to no purpose, for the evil-doers are not taken away.

  3156. Jer7:1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

  3157. Jer7:4 Put no faith in false words, saying, The Temple of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord, are these.

  3158. Jer7:5 For if your ways and your doings are truly changed for the better; if you truly give right decisions between a man and his neighbour;

  3159. Jer7:9 Will you take the goods of others, put men to death, and be untrue to your wives, and take false oaths, and have perfumes burned to the Baal, and go after other gods which are strange to you;

  3160. Jer7:10 And come and take your place before me in this house, which is named by my name, and say, We have been made safe; so that you may do all these disgusting things?

  3161. Jer7:13 And now, because you have done all these works, says the Lord, and I sent my word to you, getting up early and sending, but you did not give ear; and my voice came to you, but you gave no answer:

  3162. Jer7:18 The children go for wood, the fathers get the fire burning, the women are working the paste to make cakes for the queen of heaven, and drink offerings are drained out to other gods, moving me to wrath.

  3163. Jer7:23 But this was the order I gave them, saying, Give ear to my voice, and I will be your God, and you will be my people: go in all the way ordered by me, so that all may be well for you.

  3164. Jer7:25 From the day when your fathers came out of Egypt till this day, I have sent my servants the prophets to you, getting up early every day and sending them:

  3165. Jer7:31 And they have put up the high place of Topheth in the valley of the son of Hinnom, burning their sons and their daughters there in the fire; a thing which was not ordered by me and never came into my mind.

  3166. Jer8:5 Why do these people of Jerusalem go back, for ever turning away? they will not give up their deceit, they will not come back.

  3167. Jer8:6 I took note and gave ear, but no one said what is right: no man had regret for his evil-doing, saying, What have I done? everyone goes off on his way like a horse rushing to the fight.

  3168. Jer8:7 Truly, the stork in the heavens is conscious of her fixed times; the dove and the swallow and the crane keep to the times of their coming; but my people have no knowledge of the law of the Lord.

  3169. Jer8:11 And they have made little of the wounds of the daughter of Zion, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

  3170. Jer8:12 Let them be put to shame because they have done disgusting things. They had no shame, they were not able to become red with shame: so they will come down with those who are falling: in the time of their punishment they will be made low, says the Lord.

  3171. Jer8:13 I will put an end to them completely, says the Lord: there are no grapes on the vine and no figs on the fig-tree, and the leaf is dry.

  3172. Jer9:4 Let everyone keep watch on his neighbour, and put no faith in any brother: for every brother will certainly be tricking his brother, and every neighbour will go about saying evil.

  3173. Jer9:6 There is wrong on wrong, deceit on deceit; they have given up the knowledge of me, says the Lord.

  3174. Jer9:13 And the Lord said, Because they have given up my law which I put before them, giving no attention to my voice and not being guided by it;

  3175. Jer9:24 But if any man has pride, let it be in this, that he has the wisdom to have knowledge of me, that I am the Lord, working mercy, giving true decisions, and doing righteousness in the earth: for in these things I have delight, says the Lord.

  3176. Jer10:5 It is like a pillar in a garden of plants, and has no voice: it has to be lifted, for it has no power of walking. Have no fear of it; for it has no power of doing evil and it is not able to do any good.

  3177. Jer10:13 At the sound of his voice there is a massing of waters in the heavens, and he makes the mists go up from the ends of the earth; he makes the thunder-flames for the rain, and sends out the wind from his store-houses.

  3178. Jer10:22 News is going about, see, it is coming, a great shaking is coming from the north country, so that the towns of Judah may be made waste and become the living-place of jackals.

  3179. Jer11:1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

  3180. Jer11:4 To the order which I gave your fathers on the day when I took them out of the land of Egypt, out of the oven of iron, saying, Give ear to my voice, and do all the orders I have given you: so you will be my people, and I will be your God:

  3181. Jer11:5 So that I may give effect to the oath which I made to your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey as at this day. And I said in answer, So be it, O Lord.

  3182. Jer11:6 And the Lord said to me, Give out these words in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, Give ear to the words of this agreement and do them.

  3183. Jer11:7 For I gave certain witness to your fathers on the day when I took them up out of the land of Egypt, and even to this day, getting up early and witnessing and saying, Give ear to my voice.

  3184. Jer11:8 But they gave no attention and did not give ear, but they went on, every man in the pride of his evil heart: so I sent on them all the curses in this agreement, which I gave them orders to keep, but they did not.

  3185. Jer11:10 They are turned back to the sins of their fathers, who would not give ear to my words; they have gone after other gods and become their servants: the people of Israel and the people of Judah have not kept the agreement which I made with their fathers.

  3186. Jer11:11 So the Lord has said, I will send evil on them, which they will not be able to get away from; and they will send up a cry for help to me, but I will not give ear to them.

  3187. Jer11:14 And as for you, make no prayers for this people, send up no cry or prayer for them: for I will not give ear to their cry in the time of their trouble.

  3188. Jer11:15 About Judah. What have you to do in my house? is it your thought that oaths and holy flesh will get you out of your trouble? will you make yourself safe in this way?

  3189. Jer11:19 But I was like a gentle lamb taken to be put to death; I had no thought that they were designing evil against me, saying, Come and let us make trouble his food, cutting him off from the land of the living, so that there may be no more memory of his name.

  3190. Jer11:21 So this is what the Lord of armies has said about the men of Anathoth who have made designs against your life, saying, You are not to be a prophet in the name of the Lord, or death will overtake you by our hands:

  3191. Jer12:15 And it will come about that, after they have been uprooted, I will again have pity on them; and I will take them back, every man to his heritage and every man to his land.

  3192. Jer12:16 And it will be that, if they give their minds to learning the ways of my people, using my name in their oaths, By the living Lord; as they have been teaching my people to take oaths by the Baal; then their place will be made certain among my people.

  3193. Jer12:17 But if they will not give ear, then I will have that nation uprooted, and given to destruction, says the Lord.

  3194. Jer13:1 This is what the Lord said to me: Go and get yourself a linen band and put it round you and do not put it in water.

  3195. Jer13:3 And the word of the Lord came to me a second time, saying,

  3196. Jer13:6 Then after a long time, the Lord said to me, Up! go to Parah and get the band which I gave you orders to put there.

  3197. Jer13:8 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3198. Jer13:10 These evil people who say they will not give ear to my words, who go on in the pride of their hearts and have become servants and worshippers of other gods, will become like this band which is of no use for anything.

  3199. Jer13:12 So you are to say this word to them: This is the word of the Lord, the God of Israel: Every skin bottle will be full of wine; and they will say to you, Is it not quite clear to us that every skin bottle will be full of wine?

  3200. Jer13:17 But if you do not give ear to it, my soul will be weeping in secret for your pride; my eye will be weeping bitterly, streaming with water, because the Lord's flock has been taken away as prisoners.

  3201. Jer13:21 What will you say when he puts over you those whom you yourself have made your friends? will not pains take you like a woman in childbirth?

  3202. Jer14:5 And the roe, giving birth in the field, lets her young one be uncared for, because there is no grass.

  3203. Jer14:8 O you hope of Israel, its saviour in time of trouble, why are you like one who is strange in the land, and like a traveller putting up his tent for a night?

  3204. Jer14:10 This is what the Lord has said about this people: Even so they have been glad to go from the right way; they have not kept their feet from wandering, so the Lord has no pleasure in them; now he will keep their wrongdoing in mind and send punishment for their sins.

  3205. Jer14:19 Have you completely given up Judah? is your soul turned in disgust from Zion? why have you given us blows from which there is no one to make us well? we were looking for peace, but no good came; and for a time of well-being, but there was only a great fear.

  3206. Jer15:3 And I will put over them four divisions, says the Lord: the sword causing death, dogs pulling the dead bodies about, and the birds of heaven, and the beasts of the earth to take their bodies for food and put an end to them.

  3207. Jer15:5 For who will have pity on you, O Jerusalem? and who will have sorrow for you? or who will go out of his way to see how you are?

  3208. Jer15:15 O Lord, you have knowledge: keep me in mind and come to my help, and give their right reward to those who are attacking me; take me not away, for you are slow to be angry: see how I have undergone shame because of you from all those who make little of your word;

  3209. Jer16:1 Then again the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3210. Jer16:5 For this is what the Lord has said: Do not go into the house of sorrow, do not go to make weeping or songs of grief for them: for I have taken away my peace from this people, says the Lord, even mercy and pity.

  3211. Jer16:8 And you are not to go into the house of feasting, or be seated with them to take food or drink.

  3212. Jer16:12 And you have done worse evil than your fathers; for see, every one of you is guided by the pride of his evil heart, so as not to give ear to me:

  3213. Jer17:2 Their altars and their wood pillars under every branching tree, on the high hills and the mountains in the field.

  3214. Jer17:8 For he will be like a tree planted by the waters, pushing out its roots by the stream; he will have no fear when the heat comes, but his leaf will be green; in a dry year he will have no care, and will go on giving fruit.

  3215. Jer17:10 I the Lord am the searcher of the heart, the tester of the thoughts, so that I may give to every man the reward of his ways, in keeping with the fruit of his doings.

  3216. Jer17:19 This is what the Lord has said to me: Go and take your place in the doorway of Benjamin, where the kings of Judah come in and by which they go out, and in all the doorways of Jerusalem;

  3217. Jer17:23 But they gave no attention and would not give ear, but they made their necks stiff so that they might not give ear and might not get teaching.

  3218. Jer17:24 And it will be, that if with all care you give ear to me, says the Lord, and take no weight through the doorways of this town on the Sabbath day, but keep the Sabbath day holy and do no work in it;

  3219. Jer17:27 But if you do not give ear to me, to keep the Sabbath day holy, and to let no weight be lifted and taken through the doors of Jerusalem on the Sabbath day: then I will put a fire in its doorways, burning up the great houses of Jerusalem, and it will never be put out.

  3220. Jer18:1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

  3221. Jer18:4 And when the vessel, which he was forming out of earth, got damaged in the hand of the potter, he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make it.

  3222. Jer18:5 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3223. Jer18:6 O Israel, am I not able to do with you as this potter does? says the Lord. See, like earth in the potter's hand are you in my hands, O Israel.

  3224. Jer18:7 Whenever I say anything about uprooting a nation or a kingdom, and smashing it and sending destruction on it;

  3225. Jer18:8 If, in that very minute, that nation of which I was talking is turned away from its evil, my purpose of doing evil to them will be changed.

  3226. Jer18:9 And whenever I say anything about building up a nation or a kingdom, and planting it;

  3227. Jer18:10 If, in that very minute, it does evil in my eyes, going against my orders, then my good purpose, which I said I would do for them, will be changed.

  3228. Jer18:11 Now, then, say to the men of Judah and to the people of Jerusalem, This is what the Lord has said: See, I am forming an evil thing against you, and designing a design against you: let every man come back now from his evil way, and let your ways and your doings be changed for the better.

  3229. Jer18:15 For my people have put me out of their memory, burning perfumes to that which is nothing; and because of this, I will put a cause of falling in their ways, even in the old roads, and will make them go on side-roads, in a way not lifted up;

  3230. Jer18:16 Making their land a thing of wonder, causing sounds of surprise for ever; everyone who goes by will be overcome with wonder, shaking his head.

  3231. Jer18:20 Is evil to be the reward of good? for they have made a deep hole for my soul. Keep in mind how I took my place before you, to say a good word for them so that your wrath might be turned away from them.

  3232. Jer18:22 Let a cry for help go up from their houses, when you send an armed band on them suddenly: for they have made a hole in which to take me, and have put nets for my feet secretly.

  3233. Jer19:1 This is what the Lord has said: Go and get for money a potter's bottle made of earth, and take with you some of the responsible men of the people and of the priests;

  3234. Jer19:5 And they have put up the high places of the Baal, burning their sons in the fire; a thing which was not ordered by me, and it was never in my mind:

  3235. Jer19:11 And say to them, This is what the Lord of armies has said: Even so will this people and this town be broken by me, as a potter's bottle is broken and may not be put together again: and the bodies of the dead will be put in the earth in Topheth, till there is no more room.

  3236. Jer19:12 This is what I will do to this place, says the Lord, and to its people, making this town like Topheth:

  3237. Jer19:15 The Lord of armies, the God of Israel, has said: See, I will send on this town and on all her towns all the evil which I have said; because they made their necks stiff, so that they might not give ear to my words.

  3238. Jer20:15 A curse on the man who gave the news to my father, saying, You have a male child; making him very glad.

  3239. Jer20:18 Why did I come from my mother's body to see pain and sorrow, so that my days might be wasted with shame?

  3240. Jer21:1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, when King Zedekiah sent to him Pashhur, the son of Malchiah, and Zephaniah, the son of Maaseiah the priest, saying,

  3241. Jer22:4 For if you truly do this, then there will come in through the doors of this house kings seated on the seat of David, going in carriages and on horseback, he and his servants and his people

  3242. Jer22:10 Let there be no weeping for the dead, and make no songs of grief for him: but make bitter weeping for him who has gone away, for he will never come back or see again the country of his birth.

  3243. Jer22:14 Who says, I will make a wide house for myself, and rooms of great size, and has windows cut out, and has it roofed with cedar and painted with bright red.

  3244. Jer22:17 But your eyes and your heart are fixed only on profit for yourself, on causing the death of him who has done no wrong, and on violent and cruel acts.

  3245. Jer22:19 They will do to him what they do to the dead body of an ass; his body will be pulled out and placed on the earth outside the doors of Jerusalem.

  3246. Jer22:23 O you who are living in Lebanon, making your living-place in the cedars, how greatly to be pitied will you be when pains come on you, as on a woman in childbirth!

  3247. Jer22:27 But to the land on which their soul's desire is fixed, they will never come back.

  3248. Jer23:14 And in the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen a shocking thing; they are untrue to their wives, walking in deceit, and they make strong the hands of evil-doers, so that a man may not be turned back from his evil-doing: they have all become like Sodom to me, and its people like Gomorrah.

  3249. Jer23:17 They keep on saying to those who have no respect for the word of the Lord, You will have peace; and to everyone who goes on his way in the pride of his heart, they say, No evil will come to you.

  3250. Jer23:20 The wrath of the Lord will not be turned back till he has done, till he has put into effect, the purposes of his heart: in days to come you will have full knowledge of this.

  3251. Jer23:25 My ears have been open to what the prophets have said, who say false words in my name, saying, I have had a dream, I have had a dream, I have had a dream,

  3252. Jer23:33 And if this people, or the prophet, or a priest, questioning you, says, What word of weight is there from the Lord? then you are to say to them, You are the word, for I will not be troubled with you any more, says the Lord.

  3253. Jer23:38 But if you say, The word of weight of the Lord; this is what the Lord has said: Because you say, The weight of the Lord, and I have sent to you, saying, You are not to say, The weight of the Lord;

  3254. Jer23:39 For this reason, truly, I will put you completely out of my memory, and I will put you, and the town which I gave to you and to your fathers, away from before my face:

  3255. Jer24:4 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3256. Jer24:7 And I will give them a heart to have knowledge of me, that I am the Lord: and they will be my people, and I will be their God: for they will come back to me with all their heart.

  3257. Jer24:10 And I will send the sword, and need of food, and disease, among them till they are all cut off from the land which I gave to them and to their fathers.

  3258. Jer25:2 This word Jeremiah gave out to all the people of Judah and to those living in Jerusalem, saying,

  3259. Jer25:4 And the Lord has sent to you all his servants the prophets, getting up early and sending them; but you have not given attention and your ear has not been open to give hearing;

  3260. Jer25:5 Saying, Come back now, everyone from his evil way and from the evil of your doings, and keep your place in the land which the Lord has given to you and to your fathers, from times long past even for ever:

  3261. Jer25:6 Do not go after other gods to be their servants and to give them worship, and do not make me angry with the work of your hands, causing evil to yourselves.

  3262. Jer25:12 And it will come about, after seventy years are ended, that I will send punishment on the king of Babylon, and on that nation, says the Lord, for their evil-doing, and on the land of the Chaldaeans; and I will make it a waste for ever.

  3263. Jer25:18 Jerusalem and the towns of Judah and their kings and their princes, to make them a waste place, a cause of fear and surprise and a curse, as it is this day;

  3264. Jer25:28 And it will be, if they will not take of the cup in your hand, then you are to say to them, This is what the Lord of armies has said: You will certainly take of it.

  3265. Jer25:30 So, as a prophet, give out these words among them, and say to them, The voice of the Lord will be sounding like a lion from on high; he will send out his voice from his holy place, like the loud voice of a lion, against his flock; he will give a cry, like those who are crushing the grapes, against all the people of the earth.

  3266. Jer25:34 Give cries of grief, you keepers of sheep; give cries for help, rolling yourselves in the dust, you chiefs of the flock: for the days of your destruction have fully come, and I will send you in all directions, and your fall will be like that of the males of the flock.

  3267. Jer26:1 When Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, first became king, this word came from the Lord, saying,

  3268. Jer26:3 It may be that they will give ear, and that every man will be turned from his evil way, so that my purpose of sending evil on them because of the evil of their doings may be changed.

  3269. Jer26:4 And you are to say to them, This is what the Lord has said: If you do not give ear to me and go in the way of my law which I have put before you,

  3270. Jer26:5 And give ear to the words of my servants the prophets whom I send to you, getting up early and sending them, though you gave no attention;

  3271. Jer26:8 Now, when Jeremiah had come to the end of saying everything the Lord had given him orders to say to all the people, the priests and the prophets and all the people took him by force, saying, Death will certainly be your fate.

  3272. Jer26:9 Why have you said in the name of the Lord, This house will be like Shiloh, and this land a waste with no one living in it? And all the people had come together to Jeremiah in the house of the Lord.

  3273. Jer26:11 Then the priests and the prophets said to the rulers and to all the people, The right fate for this man is death; for he has said words against this town in your hearing.

  3274. Jer26:12 Then Jeremiah said to all the rulers and to all the people, The Lord has sent me as his prophet to say against this house and against this town all the words which have come to your ears.

  3275. Jer26:15 Only be certain that, if you put me to death, you will make yourselves and your town and its people responsible for the blood of one who has done no wrong: for truly, the Lord has sent me to you to say all these words in your ears.

  3276. Jer26:17 Then some of the responsible men of the land got up and said to all the meeting of the people,

  3277. Jer26:18 Micah the Morashtite, who was a prophet in the days of Hezekiah, king of Judah, said to all the people of Judah, This is what the Lord of armies has said: Zion will become like a ploughed field, and Jerusalem will become a mass of broken walls, and the mountain of the house like the high places of the woodland.

  3278. Jer26:24 But Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, gave Jeremiah his help, so that he was not given into the hands of the people to be put to death.

  3279. Jer27:1 When Zedekiah, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, first became king this word came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

  3280. Jer27:4 And give them orders to say to their masters, This is what the Lord of armies, the God of Israel, has said: Say to your masters,

  3281. Jer27:6 And now I have given all these lands into the hands of Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, my servant; and I have given the beasts of the field to him for his use.

  3282. Jer27:7 And all the nations will be servants to him and to his son and to his son's son, till the time comes for his land to be overcome: and then a number of nations and great kings will take it for their use.

  3283. Jer27:8 And it will come about, that if any nation does not become a servant to this same Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, and does not put its neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, then I will send punishment on that nation, says the Lord, by the sword and need of food and by disease, till I have given them into his hands.

  3284. Jer27:9 And you are not to give attention to your prophets or your readers of signs or your dreamers or those who see into the future or those who make use of secret arts, who say to you, You will not become servants of the king of Babylon:

  3285. Jer27:12 And I said all this to Zedekiah, king of Judah, saying, Put your necks under the yoke of the king of Babylon and become his servants and his people, so that you may keep your lives.

  3286. Jer27:14 And you are not to give ear to the prophets who say to you, You will not become servants of the king of Babylon: for what they say is not true.

  3287. Jer27:16 And I said to the priests and to all the people, This is what the Lord has said: Give no attention to the words of your prophets who say to you, See, in a very little time now the vessels of the Lord's house will come back again from Babylon: for what they say to you is false.

  3288. Jer27:22 They will be taken away to Babylon, and there they will be till the day when I send their punishment on them, says the Lord. Then I will take them up and put them back in their place.

  3289. Jer28:1 And it came about in that year, when Zedekiah first became king of Judah, in the fourth year, in the fifth month, that Hananiah, the son of Azzur the prophet, who came from Gibeon, said to Jeremiah in the house of the Lord, before the priests and all the people,

  3290. Jer28:2 These are the words of the Lord of armies, the God of Israel: By me the yoke of the king of Babylon has been broken.

  3291. Jer28:9 The prophet whose words are of peace, when his words come true, will be seen to be a prophet whom the Lord has sent.

  3292. Jer28:11 And before all the people Hananiah said, The Lord has said, Even so will I let the yoke of the king of Babylon be broken off the necks of all the nations in the space of two years. Then the prophet Jeremiah went away.

  3293. Jer28:12 Then after the yoke had been broken off the neck of the prophet Jeremiah by Hananiah the prophet, the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,

  3294. Jer28:13 Go and say to Hananiah, This is what the Lord has said: Yokes of wood have been broken by you, but in their place I will make yokes of iron.

  3295. Jer28:14 For the Lord of armies, the God of Israel, has said: I have put a yoke of iron on the necks of all these nations, making them servants to Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon; and they are to be his servants: and in addition I have given him the beasts of the field.

  3296. Jer29:2 (After Jeconiah the king and the queen-mother and the unsexed servants and the rulers of Judah and Jerusalem and the expert workmen and the metal-workers had gone away from Jerusalem;)

  3297. Jer29:4 This is what the Lord of armies, the God of Israel, has said to all those whom I have taken away prisoners from Jerusalem to Babylon:

  3298. Jer29:10 For this is what the Lord has said: When seventy years are ended for Babylon, I will have pity on you and give effect to my good purpose for you, causing you to come back to this place.

  3299. Jer29:11 For I am conscious of my thoughts about you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you hope at the end.

  3300. Jer29:19 Because they have not given ear to my words, says the Lord, when I sent to them my servants the prophets, getting up early and sending them; but you did not give ear, says the Lord.

  3301. Jer29:22 And their fate will be used as a curse by all the prisoners of Judah who are in Babylon, who will say, May the Lord make you like Zedekiah and like Ahab, who were burned in the fire by the king of Babylon;

  3302. Jer29:24 About Shemaiah the Nehelamite.

  3303. Jer29:25 Shemaiah the Nehelamite sent a letter in his name to Zephaniah, the son of Maaseiah the priest, saying,

  3304. Jer29:28 For he has sent to us in Babylon saying, The time will be long: go on building houses and living in them, and planting gardens and using the fruit of them.

  3305. Jer29:30 Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet, saying,

  3306. Jer29:31 Send to all those who have been taken away, saying, This is what the Lord has said about Shemaiah the Nehelamite: Because Shemaiah has been acting as a prophet to you, and I did not send him, and has made you put your faith in what is false;

  3307. Jer30:1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

  3308. Jer30:2 The Lord, the God of Israel, has said, Put down in a book all the words which I have said to you.

  3309. Jer30:21 And their chief will be of their number; their ruler will come from among themselves; and I will let him be present before me, so that he may come near to me: for who may have strength of heart to come near me? says the Lord.

  3310. Jer30:24 The wrath of the Lord will not be turned back till he has done, till he has put into effect, the purposes of his heart: in days to come you will have full knowledge of this.

  3311. Jer31:2 The Lord has said, Grace came in the waste land to a people kept safe from the sword, even to Israel on the way to his resting-place.

  3312. Jer31:12 So they will come with songs on the high places, flowing together to the good things of the Lord, to the grain and the wine and the oil, to the young ones of the flock and of the herd: their souls will be like a watered garden, and they will have no more sorrow.

  3313. Jer31:18 Certainly Ephraim's words of grief have come to my ears, You have given me training and I have undergone it like a young cow unused to the yoke: let me be turned and come back, for you are the Lord my God.

  3314. Jer31:19 Truly, after I had been turned, I had regret for my ways; and after I had got knowledge, I made signs of sorrow: I was put to shame, truly, I was covered with shame, because I had to undergo the shame of my early years.

  3315. Jer31:20 Is Ephraim my dear son? is he the child of my delight? for whenever I say things against him, I still keep him in my memory: so my heart is troubled for him; I will certainly have mercy on him, says the Lord.

  3316. Jer31:23 So the Lord of armies, the God of Israel, has said, Again will these words be used in the land of Judah and in its towns, when I have let their fate be changed: May the blessing of the Lord be on you, O resting-place of righteousness, O holy mountain.

  3317. Jer31:28 And it will come about that, as I have been watching over them for the purpose of uprooting and smashing down and overturning and sending destruction and causing trouble; so I will be watching over them for the purpose of building up and planting, says the Lord.

  3318. Jer31:34 And no longer will they be teaching every man his neighbour and every man his brother, saying, Get knowledge of the Lord: for they will all have knowledge of me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord: for they will have my forgiveness for their evil-doing, and their sin will go from my memory for ever.

  3319. Jer32:3 For Zedekiah, king of Judah, had had him shut up, saying, Why have you, as a prophet, been saying, The Lord has said, See, I will give this town into the hands of the king of Babylon, and he will take it;

  3320. Jer32:5 And he will take Zedekiah away to Babylon, where he will be till I have pity on him, says the Lord: though you are fighting with the Chaldaeans, things will not go well for you?

  3321. Jer32:6 And Jeremiah said, The word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3322. Jer32:7 See, Hanamel, the son of Shallum, your father's brother, will come to you and say, Give the price and get for yourself my property in Anathoth: for you have the right of the nearest relation.

  3323. Jer32:13 And I gave orders to Baruch in front of them, saying,

  3324. Jer32:14 This is what the Lord of armies, the God of Israel, has said: Take these papers, the witness of this business, the one which is rolled up and stamped, and the one which is open; and put them in a vessel of earth so that they may be kept for a long time.

  3325. Jer32:16 Now after I had given the paper to Baruch, the son of Neriah, I made my prayer to the Lord, saying,

  3326. Jer32:19 Great in wisdom and strong in act: whose eyes are open on all the ways of the sons of men, giving to everyone the reward of his ways and the fruit of his doings:

  3327. Jer32:22 And have given them this land, which you gave your word to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey;

  3328. Jer32:23 And they came in and took it for their heritage, but they did not give ear to your voice, and were not ruled by your law; they have done nothing of all you gave them orders to do: so you have made all this evil come on them:

  3329. Jer32:24 See, they have made earthworks against the town to take it; and the town is given into the hands of the Chaldaeans who are fighting against it, because of the sword and need of food and disease: and what you have said has taken place, and truly you see it.

  3330. Jer32:26 And the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,

  3331. Jer32:33 And they have been turning their backs and not their faces to me: and though I was their teacher, getting up early and teaching them, their ears were not open to teaching.

  3332. Jer32:35 And they put up the high places of the Baal in the valley of the son of Hinnom, making their sons and their daughters go through the fire to Molech; which I did not give them orders to do, and it never came into my mind that they would do this disgusting thing, causing Judah to be turned out of the way.

  3333. Jer32:39 And I will give them one heart and one way, so that they may go on in the worship of me for ever, for their good and the good of their children after them:

  3334. Jer32:40 And I will make an eternal agreement with them, that I will never give them up, but ever do them good; and I will put the fear of me in their hearts, so that they will not go away from me.

  3335. Jer32:44 Men will get fields for money, and put the business in writing, stamping the papers and having them witnessed, in the land of Benjamin and in the country round Jerusalem and in the towns of Judah and in the towns of the hill-country and in the towns of the lowland and in the towns of the South: for I will let their fate be changed, says the Lord.

  3336. Jer33:1 Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the second time, while he was still shut up in the place of the armed watchmen, saying,

  3337. Jer33:19 And the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,

  3338. Jer33:23 And the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,

  3339. Jer33:24 Have you taken note of what these people have said, The two families, which the Lord took for himself, he has given up? This they say, looking down on my people as being, in their eyes, no longer a nation.

  3340. Jer33:26 Then I will give up caring for the seed of Jacob and of David my servant, so that I will not take of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will let their fate be changed and will have mercy on them.

  3341. Jer34:1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, when Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, and all his army, and all the kingdoms of the earth which were under his rule, and all the peoples, were fighting against Jerusalem and all its towns, saying,

  3342. Jer34:2 The Lord, the God of Israel, has said, Go and say to Zedekiah, king of Judah, This is what the Lord has said: See, I will give this town into the hands of the king of Babylon, and he will have it burned with fire:

  3343. Jer34:3 And you will not get away from him, but will certainly be taken and given up into his hands; and you will see the king of Babylon, eye to eye, and he will have talk with you, mouth to mouth, and you will go to Babylon.

  3344. Jer34:8 The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, after King Zedekiah had made an agreement with all the people in Jerusalem, to give news in public that servants were to be made free;

  3345. Jer34:10 And this was done by all the rulers and the people who had taken part in the agreement, and every one let his man-servant and his servant-girl go free, not to be used as servants any longer; they did so, and let them go.

  3346. Jer34:12 For this reason the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

  3347. Jer34:13 The Lord, the God of Israel, has said, I made an agreement with your fathers on the day when I took them out of Egypt, out of the prison-house, saying,

  3348. Jer34:15 And now, turning away from evil, you had done what is right in my eyes, giving a public undertaking for every man to make his neighbour free; and you had made an agreement before me in the house which is named by my name:

  3349. Jer34:17 And so the Lord has said, You have not given ear to me and undertaken publicly, every man to let loose his countryman and his neighbour: see, I undertake to let loose against you the sword and disease and need of food; and I will send you wandering among all the kingdoms of the earth.

  3350. Jer35:1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, in the days of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, saying,

  3351. Jer35:2 Go into the house of the Rechabites, and have talk with them, and take them into the house of the Lord, into one of the rooms, and give them wine.

  3352. Jer35:6 But they said, We will take no wine: for Jonadab, the son of Rechab our father, gave us orders, saying, You are to take no wine, you or your sons, for ever:

  3353. Jer35:8 And we have kept the rules of Jonadab, the son of Rechab our father, in everything which he gave us orders to do, drinking no wine all our days, we and our wives and our sons and our daughters;

  3354. Jer35:9 Building no houses for ourselves, having no vine-gardens or fields or seed:

  3355. Jer35:11 But when Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, came up into the land, we said, Come, let us go to Jerusalem, away from the army of the Chaldaeans and from the army of the Aramaeans: and so we are living in Jerusalem.

  3356. Jer35:12 Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,

  3357. Jer35:13 This is what the Lord of armies, the God of Israel, has said: Go and say to the men of Judah and the people of Jerusalem, Is there no hope of teaching you to give ear to my words? says the Lord.

  3358. Jer35:14 The orders which Jonadab, the son of Rechab, gave to his sons to take no wine, are done, and to this day they take no wine, for they do the orders of their father: but I have sent my words to you, getting up early and sending them, and you have not given ear to me.

  3359. Jer35:15 And I have sent you all my servants the prophets, getting up early and sending them, saying, Come back, now, every man from his evil way, and do better, and go not after other gods to become their servants, and you will go on living in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but your ears have not been open, and you have not given attention to me.

  3360. Jer36:1 Now it came about in the fourth year of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, that this word came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

  3361. Jer36:3 It may be that the people of Judah, hearing of all the evil which it is my purpose to do to them, will be turned, every man from his evil ways; so that they may have my forgiveness for their evil-doing and their sin.

  3362. Jer36:5 And Jeremiah gave orders to Baruch, saying, I am shut up, and am not able to go into the house of the Lord:

  3363. Jer36:8 And Baruch, the son of Neriah, did as Jeremiah the prophet gave him orders to do, reading from the book the words of the Lord in the Lord's house.

  3364. Jer36:13 Then Micaiah gave them an account of all the words which had come to his ears when Baruch was reading the book to the people.

  3365. Jer36:14 So all the rulers sent Jehudi, the son of Nethaniah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Cushi, to Baruch, saying, Take in your hand the book from which you have been reading to the people and come. So Baruch, the son of Neriah, took the book in his hand and came down to them.

  3366. Jer36:16 Now it came about that, after hearing all the words, they said to one another in fear, We will certainly give the king an account of all these words.

  3367. Jer36:17 And questioning Baruch, they said, Say now, how did you put all these words down in writing from his mouth?

  3368. Jer36:21 So the king sent Jehudi to get the book, and he took it from the room of Elishama the scribe. And Jehudi gave a reading of it in the hearing of the king and all the rulers who were by the king's side.

  3369. Jer36:23 And it came about that whenever Jehudi, in his reading, had got through three or four divisions, the king, cutting them with his penknife, put them into the fire, till all the book was burned up in the fire which was burning in the fireplace.

  3370. Jer36:25 And Elnathan and Delaiah and Gemariah had made a strong request to the king not to let the book be burned, but he would not give ear to them.

  3371. Jer36:26 And the king gave orders to Jerahmeel, the king's son, and Seraiah, the son of Azriel, and Shelemiah, the son of Abdeel, to take Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet: but the Lord kept them safe.

  3372. Jer36:27 Then after the book, in which Baruch had put down the words of Jeremiah, had been burned by the king, the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,

  3373. Jer36:29 And about Jehoiakim, king of Judah, you are to say, This is what the Lord has said: You have put this book into the fire, saying, Why have you put in it that the king of Babylon will certainly come, causing the destruction of this land and putting an end to every man and beast in it?

  3374. Jer37:3 And Zedekiah the king sent Jehucal, the son of Shelemiah, and Zephaniah, the son of Maaseiah the priest, to the prophet Jeremiah, saying, Make prayer now to the Lord our God for us.

  3375. Jer37:6 Then the word of the Lord came to the prophet Jeremiah, saying,

  3376. Jer37:7 The Lord, the God of Israel, has said: This is what you are to say to the king of Judah who sent you to get directions from me: See, Pharaoh's army, which has come out to your help, will go back to Egypt, to their land.

  3377. Jer37:9 The Lord has said, Have no false hopes, saying to yourselves, The Chaldaeans will go away from us: for they will not go away.

  3378. Jer37:12 Jeremiah went out of Jerusalem to go into the land of Benjamin, with the purpose of taking up his heritage there among the people.

  3379. Jer37:13 But when he was at the Benjamin door, a captain of the watch named Irijah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Hananiah, who was stationed there, put his hand on Jeremiah the prophet, saying, You are going to give yourself up to the Chaldaeans.

  3380. Jer37:19 Where now are your prophets who said to you, The king of Babylon will not come against you and against this land?

  3381. Jer37:21 Then by the order of Zedekiah the king, Jeremiah was put into the place of the armed watchmen, and they gave him every day a cake of bread from the street of the bread-makers, till all the bread in the town was used up. So Jeremiah was kept in the place of the armed watchmen.

  3382. Jer38:1 Now it came to the ears of Shephatiah, the son of Mattan, and Gedaliah, the son of Pashhur, and Jucal, the son of Shelemiah, and Pashhur, the son of Malchiah, that Jeremiah had said to all the people,

  3383. Jer38:8 And Ebed-melech went out from the king's house and said to the king,

  3384. Jer38:10 Then the king gave orders to Ebed-melech the Ethiopian, saying, Take with you three men from here and get Jeremiah out of the water-hole before death overtakes him.

  3385. Jer38:16 So King Zedekiah gave his oath to Jeremiah secretly, saying, By the living Lord, who gave us our life, I will not put you to death, or give you up to these men who are desiring to take your life.

  3386. Jer38:17 Then Jeremiah said to Zedekiah, These are the words of the Lord, the God of armies, the God of Israel: If you go out to the king of Babylon's captains, then you will have life, and the town will not be burned with fire, and you and your family will be kept from death:

  3387. Jer38:21 But if you do not go out, this is what the Lord has made clear to me:

  3388. Jer38:26 Then you are to say to them, I made my request to the king, that he would not send me back to my death in Jonathan's house.

  3389. Jer39:11 Now Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, gave orders about Jeremiah to Nebuzaradan, the captain of the armed men, saying,

  3390. Jer39:15 Now the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah while he was shut up in the place of the armed watchmen, saying,

  3391. Jer39:16 Go and say to Ebed-melech the Ethiopian, This is what the Lord of armies, the God of Israel, has said: See, my words will come true for this town, for evil and not for good: they will come about before your eyes on that day.

  3392. Jer40:1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, after Nebuzaradan, the captain of the armed men, had let him go from Ramah, when he had taken him; for he had been put in chains, among all the prisoners of Jerusalem and Judah who were taken away prisoners to Babylon.

  3393. Jer40:4 Now see, this day I am freeing you from the chains which are on your hands. If it seems good to you to come with me to Babylon, then come, and I will keep an eye on you; but if it does not seem good to you to come with me to Babylon, then do not come: see, all the land is before you; if it seems good and right to you to go on living in the land,

  3394. Jer40:5 Then go back to Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, whom the king of Babylon has made ruler over the towns of Judah, and make your living-place with him among the people; or go wherever it seems right to you to go. So the captain of the armed men gave him food and some money and let him go.

  3395. Jer40:9 And Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, took an oath to them and their men, saying, Have no fear of the servants of the Chaldaeans: go on living in the land, and become the servants of the king of Babylon, and all will be well.

  3396. Jer40:10 As for me, I will be living in Mizpah as your representative before the Chaldaeans who come to us: but you are to get in your wine and summer fruits and oil and put them in your vessels, and make living-places for yourselves in the towns which you have taken.

  3397. Jer40:14 And said to him, Has it come to your knowledge that Baalis, the king of the children of Ammon, has sent Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, to take your life? But Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, put no faith in what they said.

  3398. Jer40:15 Then Johanan, the son of Kareah, said to Gedaliah in Mizpah secretly, Let me now go and put Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, to death without anyone's knowledge: why let him take your life so that all the Jews who have come together to you may be sent in flight, and the rest of the men of Judah come to an end?

  3399. Jer41:6 And Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, went out from Mizpah with the purpose of meeting them, weeping on his way: and it came about that when he was face to face with them he said, Come to Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam.

  3400. Jer41:7 And when they came inside the town, Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, and the men who were with him, put them to death and put their bodies into a deep hole.

  3401. Jer41:10 Then Ishmael took away as prisoners all the rest of the people who were in Mizpah, the king's daughters and all the people still in Mizpah, whom Nebuzaradan, the captain of the armed men, had put under the care of Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam: Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, took them away prisoners with the purpose of going over to the children of Ammon.

  3402. Jer41:13 Now when all the people who were with Ishmael saw Johanan, the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces with him, then they were glad.

  3403. Jer41:17 And they went and were living in the resting-place of Chimham, which is near Beth-lehem on the way into Egypt,

  3404. Jer42:10 If you still go on living in the land, then I will go on building you up and not pulling you down, planting you and not uprooting you: for my purpose of doing evil to you has been changed.

  3405. Jer42:13 But if you say, We have no desire to go on living in this land; and do not give ear to the voice of the Lord your God,

  3406. Jer42:14 Saying, No, but we will go into the land of Egypt, where we will not see war, or be hearing the sound of the horn, or be in need of food; there we will make our living-place;

  3407. Jer42:15 Then give ear now to the word of the Lord, O you last of Judah: the Lord of armies, the God of Israel, has said, If your minds are fixed on going into Egypt and stopping there;

  3408. Jer42:17 Such will be the fate of all the men whose minds are fixed on going into Egypt and stopping there; they will come to their end by the sword, by being short of food, and by disease: not one of them will keep his life or get away from the evil which I will send on them.

  3409. Jer42:18 For this is what the Lord of armies, the God of Israel, has said: As my wrath and passion have been let loose on the people of Jerusalem, so will my passion be let loose on you when you go into Egypt: and you will become an oath and a cause of wonder and a curse and a name of shame; and you will never see this place again.

  3410. Jer42:19 The Lord has said about you, O last of Judah, Go not into Egypt: be certain that I have given witness to you this day.

  3411. Jer42:20 For you have been acting with deceit in your hearts; for you sent me to the Lord your God, saying, Make prayer for us to the Lord our God, and give us word of everything he may say, and we will do it.

  3412. Jer42:22 And now be certain that you will come to your end by the sword and by being short of food and by disease, in the place to which you are pleased to go for a living-place.

  3413. Jer43:2 Then Azariah, the son of Hoshaiah, and Johanan, the son of Kareah, and all the men of pride, said to Jeremiah, You have said what is false: the Lord our God has not sent you to say, You are not to go into the land of Egypt and make your living-place there:

  3414. Jer43:3 But Baruch, the son of Neriah, is moving you against us, to give us up into the hands of the Chaldaeans so that they may put us to death, and take us away prisoners into Babylon.

  3415. Jer43:4 So Johanan, the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces, and all the people, did not give ear to the order of the Lord that they were to go on living in the land of Judah.

  3416. Jer43:5 But Johanan, the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces took all the rest of Judah who had come back into the land of Judah from all the nations where they had been forced to go;

  3417. Jer43:8 Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah in Tahpanhes, saying,

  3418. Jer44:1 The word which came to Jeremiah about all the Jews who were living in the land of Egypt, in Migdol and at Tahpanhes and at Noph and in the country of Pathros, saying,

  3419. Jer44:3 Because of the evil which they have done, moving me to wrath by burning perfumes in worship to other gods, who were not their gods or yours or the gods of their fathers.

  3420. Jer44:4 And I sent all my servants the prophets to you, getting up early and sending them, saying, Do not do this disgusting thing which is hated by me.

  3421. Jer44:5 But they gave no attention, and their ears were not open so that they might be turned from their evil-doing and from burning perfume to other gods.

  3422. Jer44:8 Moving me to wrath with the work of your hands, burning perfumes to other gods in the land of Egypt, where you have gone to make a place for yourselves, so that you may become a curse and a name of shame among all the nations of the earth?

  3423. Jer44:12 And I will take the last of Judah, whose minds are fixed on going into the land of Egypt and stopping there, and they will all come to their end, falling in the land of Egypt by the sword and by being short of food and by disease; death will overtake them, from the least to the greatest, death by the sword and by need of food: they will become an oath and a cause of wonder and a curse and a name of shame.

  3424. Jer44:14 So that not one of the rest of Judah, who have gone into the land of Egypt and are living there, will get away or keep his life, to come back to the land of Judah where they are hoping to come back and be living again: for not one will come back, but only those who are able to get away.

  3425. Jer44:15 Then all the men who had knowledge that their wives were burning perfumes to other gods, and all the women who were present, a great meeting, answering Jeremiah, said,

  3426. Jer44:17 But we will certainly do every word which has gone out of our mouths, burning perfumes to the queen of heaven and draining out drink offerings to her as we did, we and our fathers and our kings and our rulers, in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then we had food enough and did well and saw no evil.

  3427. Jer44:20 Then Jeremiah said to all the people, to the men and women and all the people who had given him that answer,

  3428. Jer44:22 And the Lord was no longer able to put up with the evil of your doings and the disgusting things you did; and because of this your land has become a waste and a cause of wonder and a curse, with no one living in it, as at this day.

  3429. Jer44:25 This is what the Lord of armies, the God of Israel, has said: You women have said with your mouths, and with your hands you have done what you said, We will certainly give effect to the oaths we have made, to have perfumes burned to the queen of heaven and drink offerings drained out to her: then give effect to your oaths and do them.

  3430. Jer44:27 See, I am watching over them for evil and not for good: all the men of Judah who are in the land of Egypt will be wasted by the sword and by need of food till there is an end of them.

  3431. Jer44:28 And those who get away safe from the sword will come back from the land of Egypt to the land of Judah, a very small number; and all the rest of Judah, who have gone into the land of Egypt and are living there, will see whose word has effect, mine or theirs.

  3432. Jer44:29 And this will be the sign to you, says the Lord, that I will give you punishment in this place, so that you may see that my words will certainly have effect against you for evil:

  3433. Jer45:1 The words which Jeremiah the prophet said to Baruch, the son of Neriah, when he put these words down in a book from the mouth of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah; he said,

  3434. Jer46:13 The word which the Lord said to Jeremiah the prophet, of how Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, would come and make war on the land of Egypt.

  3435. Jer47:4 Because of the day which is coming with destruction on all the Philistines, cutting off from Tyre and Zidon the last of their helpers: for the Lord will send destruction on the Philistines, the rest of the sea-land of Caphtor.

  3436. Jer48:7 For because you have put your faith in your strong places, you, even you, will be taken: and Chemosh will go out as a prisoner, his priests and his rulers together.

  3437. Jer48:9 Put up a pillar for Moab, for she will come to a complete end: and her towns will become a waste, without anyone living in them.

  3438. Jer48:16 The fate of Moab is near, and trouble is coming on him very quickly.

  3439. Jer49:8 Go in flight, go back, take cover in deep places, you who are living in Dedan; for I will send the fate of Edom on him, even the time of his punishment.

  3440. Jer49:12 For the Lord has said, Those for whom the cup was not made ready will certainly be forced to take of it; and are you to go without punishment? you will not be without punishment, but will certainly be forced to take from the cup.

  3441. Jer49:21 The earth is shaking with the noise of their fall; their cry is sounding in the Red Sea.

  3442. Jer49:24 Damascus has become feeble, she is turned to flight, fear has taken her in its grip: pain and sorrows have come on her, as on a woman in birth-pains.

  3443. Jer49:30 Go in flight, go wandering far off, take cover in deep places, O people of Hazor, says the Lord; for Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, has made a design against you, he has a purpose against you in mind.

  3444. Jer49:34 The word of the Lord which came to Jeremiah the prophet about Elam, when Zedekiah first became king of Judah, saying,

  3445. Jer50:4 In those days and in that time, says the Lord, the children of Israel will come, they and the children of Judah together; they will go on their way weeping and making prayer to the Lord their God.

  3446. Jer50:34 Their saviour is strong; the Lord of armies is his name: he will certainly take up their cause, so that he may give rest to the earth and trouble to the people of Babylon.

  3447. Jer51:16 At the sound of his voice there is a massing of the waters in the heavens, and he makes the mists go up from the ends of the earth; he makes the thunder-flames for the rain and sends out the wind from his store-houses.

  3448. Jer51:29 And the land is shaking and in pain: for the purposes of the Lord are fixed, to make the land of Babylon an unpeopled waste.

  3449. Jer51:31 One man, running, will give word to another, and one who goes with news will be handing it on to another, to give word to the king of Babylon that his town has been taken from every quarter:

  3450. Jer51:40 I will make them go down to death like lambs, like he-goats together.

  3451. Jer51:49 As Babylon had the dead of Israel put to the sword, so in Babylon the dead of all the land will be stretched out.

  3452. Jer51:59 The order which Jeremiah the prophet gave to Seraiah, the son of Neriah, the son of Mahseiah, when he went with Zedekiah, the king of Judah, to Babylon in the fourth year of his rule. Now Seraiah was the chief controller of the house.

  3453. Jer51:61 And Jeremiah said to Seraiah, When you come to Babylon, see that you give them all these words;

  3454. Jer51:63 And it will be that, when you have come to an end of reading this book, you are to have a stone fixed to it, and have it dropped into the Euphrates:

  3455. Jer52:1 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king; he was king for eleven years in Jerusalem: and his mother's name was Hamutal, the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah.

  3456. Lam1:2 She is sorrowing bitterly in the night, and her face is wet with weeping; among all her lovers she has no comforter: all her friends have been false to her, they have become her haters.

  3457. Lam1:7 Jerusalem keeps in mind, in the days of her sorrow and of her wanderings, all the desired things which were hers in days gone by; when her people came into the power of her hater and she had no helper, her attackers saw their desire effected on her and made sport of her destruction.

  3458. Lam1:14 A watch is kept on my sins; they are joined together by his hand, they have come on to my neck; he has made my strength give way: the Lord has given me up into the hands of those against whom I have no power.

  3459. Lam1:15 The Lord has made sport of all my men of war in me, he has got men together against me to send destruction on my young men: the virgin daughter of Judah has been crushed like grapes under the feet of the Lord.

  3460. Lam1:20 See, O Lord, for I am in trouble; the inmost parts of my body are deeply moved; my heart is turned in me; for I have been uncontrolled: outside the children are put to the sword, and in the house there is death.

  3461. Lam3:20 My soul still keeps the memory of them; and is bent down in me.

  3462. Lam3:44 Covering yourself with a cloud, so that prayer may not get through.

  3463. Lam3:52 They who are against me without cause have gone hard after me as if I was a bird;

  3464. Lam3:63 Take note of them when they are seated, and when they get up; I am their song.

  3465. Lam4:15 Away! unclean! they were crying out to them, Away! away! let there be no touching: when they went away in flight and wandering, men said among the nations, There is no further resting-place for them.

  3466. Lam4:18 They go after our steps so that we may not go in our streets: our end is near, our days are numbered; for our end has come.

  3467. Lam5:6 We have given our hands to the Egyptians and to the Assyrians so that we might have enough bread.

  3468. Lam5:22 But you have quite given us up; you are full of wrath against us.

  3469. Eze1:9 They went without turning, every one went straight forward.

  3470. Eze1:12 Every one of them went straight forward; wherever the spirit was to go they went; they went on without turning.

  3471. Eze1:14 And the living beings went out and came back as quickly as a thunder-flame.

  3472. Eze1:17 The four of them went straight forward without turning to one side.

  3473. Eze1:19 And when the living beings went on, the wheels went by their side; and when the living beings were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.

  3474. Eze1:20 Wherever the spirit was to go they went; and the wheels were lifted up by their side: for the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels.

  3475. Eze1:21 When these went on, the others went; and when these came to rest, the others came to rest; and when these were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up by their side: for the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels.

  3476. Eze1:24 And when they went, the sound of their wings was like the sound of great waters to my ears, like the voice of the Ruler of all, a sound like the rushing of an army: when they came to rest they let down their wings.

  3477. Eze1:25 And there was a voice from the top of the arch which was over their heads: when they came to rest they let down their wings.

  3478. Eze3:7 But the children of Israel will not give ear to you; for they have no mind to give ear to me: for all the children of Israel have a hard brow and a stiff heart.

  3479. Eze3:16 And at the end of seven days, the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3480. Eze3:18 When I say to the evil-doer, Death will certainly be your fate; and you give him no word of it and say nothing to make clear to the evil-doer the danger of his evil way, so that he may be safe; that same evil man will come to death in his evil-doing; but I will make you responsible for his blood.

  3481. Eze3:20 Again, when an upright man, turning away from his righteousness, does evil, and I put a cause of falling in his way, death will overtake him: because you have given him no word of his danger, death will overtake him in his evil-doing, and there will be no memory of the upright acts which he has done; but I will make you responsible for his blood.

  3482. Eze3:21 But if you say to the upright man that he is not to do evil, he will certainly keep his life because he took note of your word; and your life will be safe.

  3483. Eze5:2 You are to have a third part burned with fire inside the town, when the days of the attack are ended; and a third part you are to take and give blows with the sword round about it; and give a third part for the wind to take away, and let loose a sword after them.

  3484. Eze5:7 For this cause the Lord has said: Because you have been more uncontrolled than the nations round about you, and have not been guided by my rules or kept my orders, but have kept the orders of the nations round about you;

  3485. Eze5:15 And you will be a name of shame and a cause of bitter words, an example and a wonder to the nations round about you, when I give effect to my judging among you in wrath and in passion and in burning protests: I the Lord have said it:

  3486. Eze6:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3487. Eze6:10 And they will be certain that I am the Lord: not for nothing did I say that I would do this evil to them.

  3488. Eze7:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3489. Eze8:6 And he said to me, Son of man, do you see what they are doing? even the very disgusting things which the children of Israel are doing here, causing me to go far away from my holy place? but you will see other most disgusting things.

  3490. Eze8:17 Then he said to me, Have you seen this, O son of man? is it a small thing to the children of Judah that they do the disgusting things which they are doing here? for they have made the land full of violent behaviour, making me angry again and again: and see, they put the branch to my nose.

  3491. Eze9:1 Then crying out in my hearing in a loud voice, he said, Let the overseers of the town come near, every man armed.

  3492. Eze9:8 Now while they were doing so, and I was untouched, I went down on my face, and crying out, I said, Ah, Lord! will you give all the rest of Israel to destruction in letting loose your wrath on Jerusalem?

  3493. Eze9:11 Then the man clothed in linen, who had the inkpot at his side, came back and said, I have done what you gave me orders to do.

  3494. Eze10:3 Now the winged ones were stationed on the right side of the house when the man went in; and the inner square was full of the cloud.

  3495. Eze10:6 And when he gave orders to the man clothed in linen, saying, Take fire from between the wheels, from between the winged ones, then he went in and took his place at the side of a wheel.

  3496. Eze10:11 When they were moving, they went on their four sides without turning; they went after the head in the direction in which it was looking; they went without turning.

  3497. Eze10:16 And when the winged ones went, the wheels went by their side: and when their wings were lifted to take them up from the earth, the wheels were not turned from their side.

  3498. Eze10:17 When they were at rest in their place, these were at rest; when they were lifted up, these went up with them: for the spirit of life was in them.

  3499. Eze10:19 And the winged ones, lifting up their wings, went up from the earth before my eyes, with the wheels by their side: and they came to rest at the east doorway of the Lord's house; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them on high.

  3500. Eze11:3 Who say, This is not the time for building houses: this town is the cooking-pot and we are the flesh.

  3501. Eze11:14 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3502. Eze12:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3503. Eze12:2 Son of man, you are living among an uncontrolled people, who have eyes to see but see not, and ears for hearing but they do not give ear; for they are an uncontrolled people.

  3504. Eze12:8 And in the morning the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3505. Eze12:17 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3506. Eze12:21 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3507. Eze12:22 Son of man, what is this saying which you have about the land of Israel, The time is long and every vision comes to nothing?

  3508. Eze12:26 Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3509. Eze13:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3510. Eze13:5 You have not gone up into the broken places or made up the wall for the children of Israel to take your place in the fight in the day of the Lord.

  3511. Eze13:10 Because, even because they have been guiding my people into error, saying, Peace; when there is no peace; and in the building of a division wall they put whitewash on it:

  3512. Eze13:22 Because with your false words you have given pain to the heart of the upright man when I had not made him sad; in order to make strong the hands of the evil-doer so that he may not be turned from his evil way and get life:

  3513. Eze14:2 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3514. Eze14:5 So as to take the children of Israel in the thoughts of their hearts, because they have become strange to me through their false gods.

  3515. Eze14:7 When any one of the men of Israel, or of those from other lands who are living in Israel, who has become strange to me, and takes his false gods into his heart, and puts before his face the sin which is the cause of his fall, comes to the prophet to get directions from me; I the Lord will give him an answer by myself:

  3516. Eze14:12 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3517. Eze14:13 Son of man, when a land, sinning against me, does wrong, and my hand is stretched out against it, and the support of its bread is broken, and I make it short of food, cutting off man and beast from it:

  3518. Eze15:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3519. Eze15:3 Will its wood be used for any work? do men make of it a pin for hanging any vessel on?

  3520. Eze15:7 And my face will be turned against them; and though they have come out of the fire they will be burned up by it; and it will be clear to you that I am the Lord when my face is turned against them.

  3521. Eze16:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3522. Eze16:5 No eye had pity on you to do any of these things to you or to be kind to you; but you were put out into the open country, because your life was hated at the time of your birth.

  3523. Eze16:20 And you took your sons and your daughters whom I had by you, offering even these to them to be their food. Was your loose behaviour so small a thing,

  3524. Eze16:30 How feeble is your heart, says the Lord, seeing that you do all these things, the work of a loose and overruling woman;

  3525. Eze16:31 For you have made your arched room at the top of every street, and your high place in every open place; though you were not like a loose woman in getting together your payment.

  3526. Eze16:33 They give payment to all loose women: but you give rewards to your lovers, offering them payment so that they may come to you on every side for your cheap love.

  3527. Eze16:34 And in your loose behaviour you are different from other women, for no one goes after you to make love to you: and because you give payment and no payment is given to you, in this you are different from them.

  3528. Eze16:44 See, in every common saying about you it will be said, As the mother is, so is her daughter.

  3529. Eze16:61 Then at the memory of your ways you will be overcome with shame, when I take your sisters, the older and the younger, and give them to you for daughters, but not by your agreement.

  3530. Eze17:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3531. Eze17:6 And its growth went on and it became a vine, low and widely stretching, whose branches were turned to him and its roots were under him: so it became a vine, putting out branches and young leaves.

  3532. Eze17:8 He had it planted in a good field by great waters so that it might put out branches and have fruit and be a strong vine.

  3533. Eze17:9 Say, This is what the Lord has said: Will it do well? will he not have its roots pulled up and its branches cut off, so that all its young leaves may become dry and it may be pulled up by its roots?

  3534. Eze17:10 And if it is planted will it do well? will it not become quite dry at the touch of the east wind, drying up in the bed where it was planted?

  3535. Eze17:11 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3536. Eze17:14 So that the kingdom might be made low with no power of lifting itself up, but might keep his agreement to be his servants.

  3537. Eze17:15 But he went against his authority in sending representatives to Egypt to get from them horses and a great army. Will he do well? will he be safe who does such things? if the agreement is broken will he be safe?

  3538. Eze17:17 And Pharaoh with his strong army and great forces will be no help to him in the war, when they put up earthworks and make strong walls for the cutting off of lives:

  3539. Eze18:1 The word of the Lord came to me again, saying,

  3540. Eze18:2 Why do you make use of this saying about the land of Israel, The fathers have been tasting bitter grapes and the children's teeth are on edge?

  3541. Eze18:3 By my life, says the Lord, you will no longer have this saying in Israel.

  3542. Eze18:9 And has been guided by my rules and has kept my laws and done them: he is upright, life will certainly be his, says the Lord.

  3543. Eze18:13 And has given out his money at interest and taken great profits: he will certainly not go on living: he has done all these disgusting things: death will certainly be his fate; his blood will be on him.

  3544. Eze18:17 Who has kept his hand from evil-doing and has not taken interest or great profits, who has done my orders and been guided by my rules: he will certainly not be put to death for the evil-doing of his father; life will certainly be his.

  3545. Eze18:19 But you say, Why does not the son undergo punishment for the evil-doing of the father? When the son has done what is ordered and right, and has kept my rules and done them, life will certainly be his.

  3546. Eze18:21 But if the evil-doer, turning away from all the sins which he has done, keeps my rules and does what is ordered and right, life will certainly be his; death will not be his fate.

  3547. Eze18:23 Have I any pleasure in the death of the evil-doer? says the Lord: am I not pleased if he is turned from his way so that he may have life?

  3548. Eze18:24 But when the upright man, turning away from his righteousness, does evil, like all the disgusting things which the evil man does, will he have life? Not one of his upright acts will be kept in memory: in the wrong which he has done and in his sin death will overtake him.

  3549. Eze18:26 When the upright man, turning away from his righteousness, does evil, death will overtake him; in the evil which he has done death will overtake him.

  3550. Eze18:27 Again, when the evil-doer, turning away from the evil he has done, does what is ordered and right, he will have life for his soul.

  3551. Eze18:28 Because he had fear and was turned away from all the wrong which he had done, life will certainly be his, death will not be his fate.

  3552. Eze19:3 And one of her little ones came to growth under her care, and became a young lion, learning to go after beasts for his food; and he took men for his meat.

  3553. Eze19:6 And he went up and down among the lions and became a young lion, learning to go after beasts for his food; and he took men for his meat.

  3554. Eze19:14 And fire has gone out from her rod, causing the destruction of her branches, so that there is no strong rod in her to be the ruler's rod of authority. This is a song of grief, and it was for a song of grief.

  3555. Eze20:1 Now it came about in the seventh year, in the fifth month, on the tenth day of the month, that certain of the responsible men of Israel came to get directions from the Lord and were seated before me.

  3556. Eze20:2 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3557. Eze20:3 Son of man, say to the responsible men of Israel, This is what the Lord has said: Have you come to get directions from me? By my life, says the Lord, you will get no directions from me.

  3558. Eze20:5 And say to them, This is what the Lord has said: In the day when I took Israel for myself, when I made an oath to the seed of the family of Jacob, and I gave them knowledge of myself in the land of Egypt, saying to them with an oath, I am the Lord your God;

  3559. Eze20:8 But they would not be controlled by me, and did not give ear to me; they did not put away the disgusting things to which their eyes were turned, or give up the images of Egypt: then I said I would let loose my passion on them to give full effect to my wrath against them in the land of Egypt.

  3560. Eze20:12 And further, I gave them my Sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, so that it might be clear that I, who make them holy, am the Lord.

  3561. Eze20:13 But the children of Israel would not be controlled by me in the waste land: they were not guided by my rules, and they were turned away from my orders, which, if a man does them, will be life to him; and they had no respect for my Sabbaths: then I said that I would let loose my passion on them in the waste land, and put an end to them.

  3562. Eze20:20 And keep my Sabbaths holy; and they will be a sign between me and you so that it may be clear to you that I am the Lord your God.

  3563. Eze20:21 But the children would not be controlled by me; they were not guided by my rules, and they did not keep and do my orders, which, if a man does them, will be life to him; and they had no respect for my Sabbaths: then I said I would let loose my passion on them to give full effect to my wrath against them in the waste land.

  3564. Eze20:27 For this cause, son of man, say to the children of Israel, This is what the Lord has said: In this your fathers have further put shame on my name by doing wrong against me.

  3565. Eze20:28 For when I had taken them into the land which I made an oath to give to them, then they saw every high hill and every branching tree and made their offerings there, moving me to wrath by their offerings; and there the sweet smell of their offerings went up and their drink offerings were drained out.

  3566. Eze20:31 And when you give your offerings, causing your sons to go through the fire, you make yourselves unclean with all your images to this day; and will you come to me for directions, O children of Israel? By my life, says the Lord, you will get no direction from me.

  3567. Eze20:42 And you will be certain that I am the Lord, when I take you into the land of Israel, into the country which I made an oath to give to your fathers.

  3568. Eze20:44 And you will be certain that I am the Lord, when I take you in hand for the honour of my name, and not for your evil ways or your unclean doings, O children of Israel, says the Lord.

  3569. Eze20:45 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3570. Eze21:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3571. Eze21:8 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3572. Eze21:10 It has been made sharp to give death; it is polished so that it may be like a thunder-flame: ...

  3573. Eze21:11 And I have given it to the polisher so that it may be taken in the hand: he has made the sword sharp, he has had it polished, to put it into the hand of him who gives death.

  3574. Eze21:15 In order that hearts may become soft, and the number of those who are falling may be increased, I have sent death by the sword against all their doors: you are made like a flame, you are polished for death.

  3575. Eze21:18 And the word of the Lord came to me again, saying,

  3576. Eze21:19 And you, son of man, have two ways marked out, so that the sword of the king of Babylon may come; let the two of them come out of one land: and let there be a pillar at the top of the road:

  3577. Eze21:20 Put a pillar at the top of the road for the sword to come to Rabbah in the land of the children of Ammon, and to Judah and to Jerusalem in the middle of her.

  3578. Eze21:21 For the king of Babylon took his place at the parting of the ways, at the top of the two roads, to make use of secret arts: shaking the arrows this way and that, he put questions to the images of his gods, he took note of the inner parts of dead beasts.

  3579. Eze21:22 At his right hand was the fate of Jerusalem, to give orders for destruction, to send up the war-cry, to put engines of war against the doors, lifting up earthworks, building walls.

  3580. Eze21:23 And this answer given by secret arts will seem false to those who have given their oaths and have let them be broken: but he will keep the memory of evil-doing so that they may be taken.

  3581. Eze21:27 I will let it be overturned, overturned, overturned: this will not be again till he comes whose right it is; and I will give it to him.

  3582. Eze21:29 Your vision is to no purpose, your use of secret arts gives a false answer, to put it on the necks of evil-doers who are wounded to death, whose day has come, in the time of the last punishment.

  3583. Eze22:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3584. Eze22:3 And you are to say, This is what the Lord has said: A town causing blood to be drained out in her streets so that her time may come, and making images in her to make her unclean!

  3585. Eze22:6 See, the rulers of Israel, every one in his family, have been causing death in you.

  3586. Eze22:9 In you there are men who say evil of others, causing death; in you they have taken the flesh with the blood for food; in your streets they have put evil designs into effect.

  3587. Eze22:12 In you they have taken rewards as the price of blood; you have taken interest and great profits, and you have taken away your neighbours' goods by force, and have not kept me in mind, says the Lord.

  3588. Eze22:17 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3589. Eze22:20 As they put silver and brass and iron and lead and tin together inside the oven, heating up the fire on it to make it soft; so will I get you together in my wrath and in my passion, and, heating the fire with my breath, will make you soft.

  3590. Eze22:23 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3591. Eze22:27 Her rulers in her are like wolves violently taking their food; putting men to death and causing the destruction of souls, so that they may get their profit.

  3592. Eze23:1 The word of the Lord came to me again, saying,

  3593. Eze23:19 But still she went on the more with her loose behaviour, keeping in mind the early days when she had been a loose woman in the land of Egypt.

  3594. Eze23:21 And she made the memory of the loose ways of her early years come back to mind, when her young breasts were crushed by the Egyptians.

  3595. Eze23:30 They will do these things to you because you have been untrue to me, and have gone after the nations, and have become unclean with their images.

  3596. Eze23:39 For when she had made an offering of her children to her images, she came into my holy place to make it unclean; see, this is what she has done inside my house.

  3597. Eze23:44 And they went in to her, as men go to a loose woman: so they went in to Oholibah, the loose woman.

  3598. Eze23:46 For this is what the Lord has said: I will make a great meeting of the people come together against her, and will send on her shaking fear and take everything from her.

  3599. Eze24:1 And the word of the Lord came to me in the ninth year, in the tenth month, on the tenth day of the month, saying,

  3600. Eze24:5 Take the best of the flock, put much wood under it: see that its bits are boiling well; let the bones be cooked inside it.

  3601. Eze24:8 In order that it might make wrath come up to give punishment, she has put her blood on the open rock, so that it may not be covered.

  3602. Eze24:15 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3603. Eze24:20 Then I said to them, The word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3604. Eze24:24 And Ezekiel will be a sign to you; everything he has done you will do: when this takes place, you will be certain that I am the Lord.

  3605. Eze24:25 And as for you, son of man, your mouth will be shut in the day when I take from them their strength, the joy of their glory, the desire of their eyes, and that on which their hearts are fixed, and their sons and daughters.

  3606. Eze25:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3607. Eze25:3 And say to the children of Ammon, Give ear to the word of the Lord; this is what the Lord has said: Because you said, Aha! against my holy place when it was made unclean, and against the land of Israel when it was made waste, and against the people of Judah when they were taken away as prisoners;

  3608. Eze25:6 For the Lord has said, Because you have made sounds of joy with your hands, stamping your feet, and have been glad, putting shame with all your soul on the land of Israel;

  3609. Eze25:8 This is what the Lord has said: Because Moab and Seir are saying, See, the people of Judah are like all the nations;

  3610. Eze25:12 This is what the Lord has said: Because Edom has taken his payment from the people of Judah, and has done great wrong in taking payment from them;

  3611. Eze25:15 This is what the Lord has said: Because the Philistines have taken payment, with the purpose of causing shame and destruction with unending hate;

  3612. Eze25:17 And I will take great payment from them with acts of wrath; and they will be certain that I am the Lord when I send my punishment on them.

  3613. Eze26:1 Now in the eleventh year, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3614. Eze26:10 Because of the number of his horses you will be covered with their dust: your walls will be shaking at the noise of the horsemen and of the wheels and of the war-carriages, when he comes through your doorways, as into a town which has been broken open.

  3615. Eze26:15 This is what the Lord has said to Tyre: Will not the sea-lands be shaking at the sound of your fall, when the wounded give cries of pain, when men are put to the sword in you?

  3616. Eze26:18 Now the sea-lands will be shaking in the day of your fall; and all the ships on the sea will be overcome with fear at your going.

  3617. Eze26:19 For this is what the Lord has said: I will make you a waste town, like the towns which are unpeopled; when I make the deep come upon you, covering you with great waters.

  3618. Eze27:1 The word of the Lord came to me again, saying,

  3619. Eze27:5 They have made all your boards of fir-trees from Senir: they have taken cedars from Lebanon to make the supports for your sails.

  3620. Eze27:9 The responsible men of Gebal and its wise men were in you, making your boards watertight: all the ships of the sea with their seamen were in you trading in your goods.

  3621. Eze27:33 When your goods went out over the seas, you made numbers of peoples full; the wealth of the kings of the earth was increased with your great wealth and all your goods.

  3622. Eze28:1 The word of the Lord came to me again, saying,

  3623. Eze28:6 For this cause the Lord has said: Because you have made your heart as the heart of God,

  3624. Eze28:9 Will you say, in the face of those who are taking your life, I am God? but you are man and not God in the hands of those who are wounding you.

  3625. Eze28:11 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3626. Eze28:17 Your heart was lifted up because you were beautiful, you made your wisdom evil through your sin: I have sent you down, even to the earth; I have made you low before kings, so that they may see you.

  3627. Eze28:20 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3628. Eze28:22 These are the words of the Lord: See, I am against you, O Zidon; and I will get glory for myself in you: and they will be certain that I am the Lord, when I send my punishments on her, and I will be seen to be holy in her.

  3629. Eze28:26 And they will be safe there, building houses and planting vine-gardens and living without fear; when I have sent my punishments on all those who put shame on them round about them; and they will be certain that I am the Lord their God.

  3630. Eze29:1 In the tenth year, in the tenth month, on the twelfth day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3631. Eze29:7 When they took a grip of you in their hands, you were crushed so that their arms were broken: and when they put their weight on you for support, you were broken and all their muscles gave way.

  3632. Eze29:15 It will be the lowest of the kingdoms, and never again will it be lifted up over the nations: I will make them small, so that they may not have rule over the nations.

  3633. Eze29:16 And Egypt will no longer be the hope of the children of Israel, causing sin to come to mind when their eyes are turned to them: and they will be certain that I am the Lord.

  3634. Eze29:17 Now in the twenty-seventh year, in the first month, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3635. Eze30:1 The word of the Lord came to me again, saying,

  3636. Eze30:4 And a sword will come on Egypt, and cruel pain will be in Ethiopia, when they are falling by the sword in Egypt; and they will take away her wealth and her bases will be broken down.

  3637. Eze30:8 And they will be certain that I am the Lord, when I have put a fire in Egypt and all her helpers are broken.

  3638. Eze30:16 And I will put a fire in Egypt; Syene will be twisting in pain, and No will be broken into, as by the onrush of waters.

  3639. Eze30:18 And at Tehaphnehes the day will become dark, when the yoke of Egypt is broken there, and the pride of her power comes to an end: as for her, she will be covered with a cloud, and her daughters will be taken away prisoners.

  3640. Eze30:20 Now in the eleventh year, in the first month, on the seventh day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3641. Eze30:21 Son of man, the arm of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, has been broken by me, and no band has been put round it to make it well, no band has been twisted round it to make it strong for gripping the sword.

  3642. Eze30:25 And I will make the arms of the king of Babylon strong, and the arms of Pharaoh will be hanging down; and they will be certain that I am the Lord, when I put my sword into the hand of the king of Babylon and it is stretched out against the land of Egypt.

  3643. Eze31:1 Now in the eleventh year, in the third month, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3644. Eze31:11 I have given him up into the hands of a strong one of the nations; he will certainly give him the reward of his sin, driving him out.

  3645. Eze31:15 This is what the Lord has said: The day when he goes down to the underworld, I will make the deep full of grief for him; I will keep back her streams and the great waters will be stopped: I will make Lebanon dark for him, and all the trees of the field will be feeble because of him.

  3646. Eze32:1 And it came about in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, on the first day of the month, that the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3647. Eze32:15 When I make Egypt an unpeopled waste, cutting off from the land all the things in it; when I send punishment on all those living in it, then it will be clear to them that I am the Lord.

  3648. Eze32:17 And in the twelfth year, on the fifteenth day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3649. Eze33:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3650. Eze33:8 When I say to the evil-doer, Death will certainly overtake you; and you say nothing to make clear to the evil-doer the danger of his way; death will overtake that evil man in his evil-doing, but I will make you responsible for his blood.

  3651. Eze33:9 But if you make clear to the evil-doer the danger of his way for the purpose of turning him from it, and he is not turned from his way, death will overtake him in his evil-doing, but your life will be safe.

  3652. Eze33:10 And you, son of man, say to the children of Israel, You say, Our wrongdoing and our sins are on us and we are wasting away in them; how then may we have life?

  3653. Eze33:11 Say to them, By my life, says the Lord, I have no pleasure in the death of the evil-doer; it is more pleasing to me if he is turned from his way and has life: be turned, be turned from your evil ways; why are you looking for death, O children of Israel?

  3654. Eze33:12 And you, son of man, say to the children of your people, The righteousness of the upright man will not make him safe in the day when he does wrong; and the evil-doing of the evil man will not be the cause of his fall in the day when he is turned from his evil-doing; and the upright man will not have life because of his righteousness in the day when he does evil.

  3655. Eze33:13 When I say to the upright that life will certainly be his; if he puts his faith in his righteousness and does evil, not one of his upright acts will be kept in memory; but in the evil he has done, death will overtake him.

  3656. Eze33:14 And when I say to the evil-doer, Death will certainly be your fate; if he is turned from his sin and does what is ordered and right;

  3657. Eze33:15 If the evil-doer lets one who is in his debt have back what is his, and gives back what he had taken by force, and is guided by the rules of life, doing no evil; life will certainly be his, death will not overtake him.

  3658. Eze33:16 Not one of the sins which he has done will be kept in mind against him: he has done what is ordered and right, life will certainly be his.

  3659. Eze33:18 When the upright man, turning away from his righteousness, does evil, death will overtake him in it.

  3660. Eze33:19 And when the evil man, turning away from his evil-doing, does what is ordered and right, he will get life by it.

  3661. Eze33:21 Now in the twelfth year after we had been taken away prisoners, in the tenth month, on the fifth day of the month, one who had got away in flight from Jerusalem came to me, saying, The town has been taken.

  3662. Eze33:22 Now the hand of the Lord had been on me in the evening, before the man who had got away came to me; and he made my mouth open, ready for his coming to me in the morning; and my mouth was open and I was no longer without voice.

  3663. Eze33:23 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3664. Eze33:24 Son of man, those who are living in these waste places in the land of Israel say, Abraham was but one, and he had land for his heritage: but we are a great number; the land is given to us for our heritage.

  3665. Eze33:27 This is what you are to say to them: The Lord has said, By my life, truly, those who are in the waste places will be put to the sword, and him who is in the open field I will give to the beasts for their food, and those who are in the strong places and in holes in the rocks will come to their death by disease.

  3666. Eze33:29 Then they will be certain that I am the Lord, when I have made the land a waste and a cause of wonder, because of all the disgusting things which they have done,

  3667. Eze33:30 And as for you, son of man, the children of your people are talking together about you by the walls and in the doorways of the houses, saying to one another, Come now, give ear to the word which comes from the Lord.

  3668. Eze33:33 And when this comes about (see, it is coming), then it will be clear to them that a prophet has been among them.

  3669. Eze34:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3670. Eze34:10 This is what the Lord has said: See I am against the keepers of the flock, and I will make search and see what they have done with my sheep, and will let them be keepers of my sheep no longer; and the keepers will no longer get food for themselves; I will take my sheep out of their mouths so that they may not be food for them.

  3671. Eze34:27 And the tree of the field will give its fruit and the earth will give its increase, and they will be safe in their land; and they will be certain that I am the Lord, when I have had their yoke broken and have given them salvation from the hands of those who made them servants.

  3672. Eze35:1 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3673. Eze35:10 Because you have said, The two nations and the two countries are to be mine, and we will take them for our heritage; though the Lord was there:

  3674. Eze35:12 And you will see that I the Lord have had knowledge of all the bitter things which you have said against the mountains of Israel, saying, They have been made waste, they are given to us to take for our heritage.

  3675. Eze35:14 This is what the Lord has said: Because you were glad over my land when it was a waste, so will I do to you:

  3676. Eze36:3 For this cause be a prophet, and say, This is what the Lord has said: Because, even because they have been glad over you and put you to shame on every side, because you have become a heritage for the rest of the nations, and you are taken up on the lips of talkers and in the evil talk of the people:

  3677. Eze36:8 But you, O mountains of Israel, will put out your branches and give your fruit to my people Israel; for they are ready to come.

  3678. Eze36:16 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3679. Eze36:20 And when they came among the nations, wherever they went, they made my holy name unclean, when it was said of them, These are the people of the Lord who have gone out from his land.

  3680. Eze36:37 This is what the Lord has said: The children of Israel will again make prayer to me for this, that I may do it for them; I will make them increased with men like a flock.

  3681. Eze37:13 And you will be certain that I am the Lord by my opening the resting-places of your dead and making you come up out of your resting-places, O my people.

  3682. Eze37:15 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3683. Eze37:18 And when the children of your people say to you, Will you not make clear to us what these things have to do with us?

  3684. Eze38:1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

  3685. Eze38:12 To take their property by force and go off with their goods; turning your hand against the waste places which now are peopled, and against the people who have been got together out of the nations, who have got cattle and goods for themselves, who are living in the middle of the earth.

  3686. Eze38:13 Sheba, and Dedan and her traders, Tarshish with all her traders, will say to you, Have you come to take our goods? have you got your armies together to take away our property by force? to take away silver and gold, cattle and goods, to go off with great wealth?

  3687. Eze38:14 For this cause, son of man, be a prophet and say to Gog, These are the words of the Lord: In that day, when my people Israel are living without fear of danger, will you not be moved against them?

  3688. Eze38:16 And you will come up against my people Israel, like a cloud covering the land; and it will come about, in the last days, that I will make you come against my land, so that the nations may have knowledge of me when I make myself holy in you, O Gog, before their eyes.

  3689. Eze38:18 And it will come about in that day, when Gog comes up against the land of Israel, says the Lord, that my wrath will come up, and my passion and my bitter feeling.

  3690. Eze39:26 And they will be conscious of their shame and of all the wrong which they have done against me, when they are living in their land with no sense of danger and with no one to be a cause of fear to them;

  3691. Eze40:39 And in the covered way of the doorway there were two tables on this side and two tables on that side, on which the burned offering and the sin-offering and the offering for error were put to death:

  3692. Eze42:9 And under these rooms was the way in from the east side, as one goes into them from the outer square at the head of the outer wall.

  3693. Eze42:14 When the priests go in, they may not go out of the holy place into the outer square, and there they are to put the robes in which they do the work of the Lord's house, for they are holy: and they have to put on other clothing before they come near that which has to do with the people.

  3694. Eze43:3 And the vision which I saw was like the vision I had seen when he came for the destruction of the town: and like the vision which I saw by the river Chebar; and I went down on my face.

  3695. Eze43:8 By putting their doorstep by my doorstep, and the pillar of their door by the pillar of my door, with only a wall between me and them; and they have made my holy name unclean by the disgusting things which they have done: so in my wrath I sent destruction on them.

  3696. Eze43:17 And the shelf is fourteen cubits long and fourteen cubits wide, on its four sides; the edge round it is half a cubit; the base of it is a cubit all round, and its steps are facing the east.

  3697. Eze43:18 And he said to me, Son of man, the Lord God has said, These are the rules for the altar, when they make it, for the offering of burned offerings on it and the draining out of the blood.

  3698. Eze44:3 But the ruler will be seated there to take his food before the Lord; he will go in by the covered way to the door, and will come out by the same way.

  3699. Eze44:10 But as for the Levites, who went far from me, when Israel went out of the right way, turning away from me to go after their images; their punishment will come on them.

  3700. Eze44:13 And they will not come near me to do the work of priests to me, or come near any of my holy things, or the things which are most holy: but their shame will be on them, and the punishment for the disgusting things which they have done.

  3701. Eze44:15 But as for the priests, the sons of Zadok, who took care of my holy place when the children of Israel were turned away from me, they are to come near me to do my work, they will take their places before me, offering to me the fat and the blood, says the Lord;

  3702. Eze44:17 And when they come in by the doorways of the inner square, they are to be clothed in linen robes; there is to be no wool on them while they are doing my work in the doorway of the inner square and inside the house.

  3703. Eze44:19 And when they go out into the outer square to the people, they are to take off the robes in which they do the work of priests, and put them away in the holy rooms, and put on other clothing, so that the people may not be made holy by their robes.

  3704. Eze44:20 They are not to have all the hair cut off their heads, and they are not to let their hair get long, but they are to have the ends of their hair cut.

  3705. Eze44:21 The priests are not to take wine when they go into the inner square.

  3706. Eze44:24 In any cause, they are to be in the position of judges, judging in harmony with my decisions: they are to keep my laws and my rules in all my fixed feasts; and they are to keep my Sabbaths holy.

  3707. Eze44:25 They are not to come near any dead person so as to become unclean: but for a father or mother or son or daughter or brother or for a sister who has no husband, they may make themselves unclean.

  3708. Eze44:27 And on the day when he goes into the inner square, to do the work of the holy place, he is to make his sin-offering, says the Lord.

  3709. Eze45:11 The ephah and the bath are to be of the same measure, so that the bath is equal to a tenth of a homer, and the ephah to a tenth of a homer: the unit of measure is to be a homer.

  3710. Eze46:8 And when the ruler comes in, he is to go in through the covered way of the doorway, and he is to go out by the same way.

  3711. Eze46:9 But when the people of the land come before the Lord at the fixed feasts, he who comes in by the north doorway to give worship is to go out by the south doorway; and he who comes in by the south doorway is to go out by the north doorway: he is not to come back by the doorway through which he went in, but is to go straight before him.

  3712. Eze46:10 And the ruler, when they come in, is to come among them, and is to go out when they go out.

  3713. Eze46:12 And when the ruler makes a free offering, a burned offering or a peace-offering freely given to the Lord, the doorway looking to the east is to be made open for him, and he is to make his burned offering and his peace-offerings as he does on the Sabbath day: and he will go out; and the door will be shut after he has gone out.

  3714. Eze46:14 And you are to give, morning by morning, a meal offering with it, a sixth of an ephah and a third of a hin of oil dropped on the best meal; a meal offering offered to the Lord at all times by an eternal order.

  3715. Eze47:3 And the man went out to the east with the line in his hand, and after measuring a thousand cubits, he made me go through the waters, which came over my feet.

  3716. Eze47:5 Again, after his measuring a thousand, it became a river which it was not possible to go through: for the waters had become deep enough for swimming, a river it was not possible to go through.

  3717. Eze47:7 And he took me back, and I saw at the edge of the river a very great number of trees on this side and on that.

  3718. Eze47:14 And you are to make an equal division of it; as I gave my oath to your fathers to give it to you: for this land is to be your heritage.

  3719. Eze47:15 And this is to be the limit of the land: on the north side, from the Great Sea, in the direction of Hethlon, as far as the way into Hamath;

  3720. Eze47:20 And the west side will be the Great Sea, from the limit on the south to a point opposite the way into Hamath. This is the west side.

  3721. Eze48:1 Now these are the names of the tribes: from the north end, from the west on the way of Hethlon to the way into Hamath, in the direction of Hazar-enon, with the limit of Damascus to the north, by Hamath; and on the limit from the east side to the west side: Dan, one part.

  3722. Eze48:11 For the priests who have been made holy, those of the sons of Zadok who kept the orders I gave them, who did not go out of the right way when the children of Israel went from the way, as the Levites did,

  3723. Dan1:4 Young men who were strong and healthy, good-looking, and trained in all wisdom, having a good education and much knowledge, and able to take positions in the king's house; and to have them trained in the writing and language of the Chaldaeans.

  3724. Dan2:2 Then the king gave orders that the wonder-workers, and the users of secret arts, and those who made use of evil powers, and the Chaldaeans, were to be sent for to make clear to the king his dreams. So they came and took their places before the king.

  3725. Dan2:3 And the king said to them, I have had a dream, and my spirit is troubled by the desire to have the dream made clear to me.

  3726. Dan8:2 And I saw in the vision; and when I saw it, I was in the strong town Shushan, which is in the country of Elam; and in the vision I was by the water-door of the Ulai.

  3727. Dan8:7 And I saw him come right up to the sheep, and he was moved with wrath against him, attacking the sheep so that his two horns were broken; and the sheep had not strength to keep his place before him, but was pushed down on the earth and crushed under his feet: and there was no one to get the sheep out of his power.

  3728. Dan8:8 And the he-goat became very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and in its place came up four other horns turned to the four winds of heaven.

  3729. Dan8:13 Then there came to my ears the voice of a holy one talking; and another holy one said to that certain one who was talking, How long will the vision be while the regular burned offering is taken away, and the unclean thing causing fear is put up, and the holy place crushed under foot?

  3730. Dan8:15 And it came about that when I, Daniel, had seen this vision, I had a desire for the sense of it to be unfolded; and I saw one before me in the form of a man.

  3731. Dan8:17 So he came and took his place near where I was; and when he came, I was full of fear and went down on my face: but he said to me, Let it be clear to you, O son of man; for the vision has to do with the time of the end.

  3732. Dan9:2 In the first year of his rule, I, Daniel, saw clearly from the books the number of years given by the word of the Lord to the prophet Jeremiah, in which the making waste of Jerusalem was to be complete, that is, seventy years.

  3733. Dan9:5 We are sinners, acting wrongly and doing evil; we have gone against you, turning away from your orders and from your laws:

  3734. Dan9:10 And have not given ear to the voice of the Lord our God to go in the way of his laws which he put before us by the mouth of his servants the prophets.

  3735. Dan9:11 And all Israel have been sinners against your law, turning away so as not to give ear to your voice: and the curse has been let loose on us, and the oath recorded in the law of Moses, the servant of God, for we have done evil against him.

  3736. Dan9:13 As it was recorded in the law of Moses, all this evil has come on us: but we have made no prayer for grace from the Lord our God that we might be turned from our evil doings and come to true wisdom.

  3737. Dan9:24 Seventy weeks have been fixed for your people and your holy town, to let wrongdoing be complete and sin come to its full limit, and for the clearing away of evil-doing and the coming in of eternal righteousness: so that the vision and the word of the prophet may be stamped as true, and to put the holy oil on a most holy place.

  3738. Dan9:25 Have then the certain knowledge that from the going out of the word for the building again of Jerusalem till the coming of a prince, on whom the holy oil has been put, will be seven weeks: in sixty-two weeks its building will be complete, with square and earthwork.

  3739. Dan10:3 I had no pleasing food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, and I put no oil on my body till three full weeks were ended.

  3740. Dan10:9 But the sound of his words came to my ears, and on hearing his voice I went into a deep sleep with my face to the earth.

  3741. Dan10:13 But the angel of the kingdom of Persia put himself against me for twenty-one days; but Michael, one of the chief angels, came to my help; and when I came he was still there with the angel of the kings of Persia.

  3742. Dan11:5 And the king of the south will be strong, but one of his captains will be stronger than he and will be ruler; and his rule will be a great rule.

  3743. Dan11:7 But out of a branch from her roots one will come up to take his place, who will come against the army, forcing his way into the strong place of the king of the north, and he will take them in hand and overcome them:

  3744. Dan11:11 And the king of the south will be moved with wrath, and will come out and make war on him, on this same king of the north: and he will get together a great army, but the army will be given into his hand.

  3745. Dan11:14 In those times, a number will take up arms against the king of the south: and the children of the violent among your people will be lifting themselves up to make the vision come true; but it will be their downfall.

  3746. Dan11:16 And he who comes against him will do his pleasure, and no one will be able to keep his place before him: he will take up his position in the beautiful land and in his hand there will be destruction.

  3747. Dan11:18 After this, his face will be turned to the islands, and he will take a number of them: but a chief, by his destruction, will put an end to the shame offered by him; and more than this, he will make his shame come back on him.

  3748. Dan11:36 And the king will do his pleasure; he will put himself on high, lifting himself over every god, and saying things to be wondered at against the God of gods; and all will be well for him till the wrath is complete; for what has been purposed will be done.

  3749. Dan12:12 A blessing will be on the man who goes on waiting, and comes to the thousand, three hundred and thirty-five days.

  3750. Hos1:2 The start of the word of the Lord by Hosea: And the Lord said to Hosea, Go, take for yourself a wife of loose ways, and children of the same, for the land has been untrue to the Lord.

  3751. Hos1:6 And after that she gave birth to a daughter. And the Lord said, Give her the name Lo-ruhamah; for I will not again have mercy on Israel, to give them forgiveness.

  3752. Hos2:15 And I will give her vine-gardens from there, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope; and she will give her answer there as in the days when she was young, and as in the time when she came up out of the land of Egypt.

  3753. Hos4:2 There is cursing and broken faith, violent death and attacks on property, men are untrue in married life, houses are broken into, and there is blood touching blood.

  3754. Hos4:10 They will have food, but they will not be full; they will be false to me, but they will not be increased, because they no longer give thought to the Lord.

  3755. Hos5:2 They have gone deep in the evil ways of Shittim, but I am the judge of all.

  3756. Hos5:4 Their works will not let them come back to their God, for a false spirit is in them and they have no knowledge of the Lord.

  3757. Hos5:13 When Ephraim saw his disease and Judah his wound, then Ephraim went to Assyria and sent to the great king; but he is not able to make you well or give you help for your wound.

  3758. Hos6:3 And let us have knowledge, let us go after the knowledge of the Lord; his going out is certain as the dawn, his decisions go out like the light; he will come to us like the rain, like the spring rain watering the earth.

  3759. Hos6:11 And Judah has put up disgusting images for himself.

  3760. Hos7:1 When my desire was for the fate of my people to be changed and to make Israel well, then the sin of Ephraim was made clear, and the evil-doing of Samaria; for their ways are false, and the thief comes into the house, while the band of outlaws takes property by force in the streets.

  3761. Hos7:4 They are all untrue; they are like a burning oven; the bread-maker does not make up the fire from the time when the paste is mixed till it is leavened.

  3762. Hos7:6 For they have made their hearts ready like an oven, while they are waiting secretly; their wrath is sleeping all night; in the morning it is burning like a flaming fire.

  3763. Hos8:11 Because Ephraim has been increasing altars for sin, altars have become a cause of sin to him.

  3764. Hos9:10 I made discovery of Israel as of grapes in the waste land; I saw your fathers as the first-fruits of the fig-tree in her early fruit time; but they came to Baal-peor, and made themselves holy to the thing of shame, and became disgusting like that to which they gave their love.

  3765. Hos9:11 As for Ephraim, their glory will go in flight like a bird: there will be no birth and no one with child and no giving of life.

  3766. Hos9:12 Even though their children have come to growth I will take them away, so that not a man will be there; for their evil-doing will be complete and they will be put to shame because of it.

  3767. Hos10:4 Their words are foolish; they make agreements with false oaths, so punishment will come up like a poison-plant in a ploughed field.

  3768. Hos10:10 I will come and give them punishment; and the peoples will come together against them when I give them the reward of their two sins.

  3769. Hos10:11 And Ephraim is a trained cow, taking pleasure in crushing the grain; but I have put a yoke on her fair neck; I will put a horseman on the back of Ephraim; Judah will be working the plough, Jacob will be turning up the earth.

  3770. Hos10:12 Put in the seed of righteousness, get in your grain in mercy, let your unploughed earth be turned up: for it is time to make search for the Lord, till he comes and sends righteousness on you like rain.

  3771. Hos11:3 But I was guiding Ephraim's footsteps; I took them up in my arms, but they were not conscious that I was ready to make them well.

  3772. Hos11:5 He will go back to the land of Egypt and the Assyrian will be his king, because they would not come back to me.

  3773. Hos12:3 The Lord has a cause against Judah, and will give punishment to Jacob for his ways; he will give him the reward of his acts.

  3774. Hos12:8 As for Canaan, the scales of deceit are in his hands; he takes pleasure in twisted ways.

  3775. Hos13:2 And now their sins are increased; they have made themselves a metal image, false gods from their silver, after their designs, all of them the work of the metal-workers; they say of them, Let them give offerings, let men give kisses to the oxen.

  3776. Joe1:7 By him my vine is made waste and my fig-tree broken: he has taken all its fruit and sent it down to the earth; its branches are made white.

  3777. Joe2:17 Let the priests, the servants of the Lord, be weeping between the covered way and the altar, and let them say, Have mercy on your people, O Lord, do not give up your heritage to shame, so that the nations become their rulers: why let them say among the peoples, Where is their God?

  3778. Joe2:20 I will send the one from the north far away from you, driving him into a dry and waste land, with his front to the sea of the east and his back to the sea of the west, and the smell of him will go up, even his evil smell will go up.

  3779. Joe2:21 Have no fear, O land; be glad with great joy; for the Lord has done great things.

  3780. Joe2:26 You will have food in full measure, and give praise to the name of the Lord your God, who has done wonders for you:

  3781. Joe2:31 The sun will be made dark and the moon turned to blood, before the great day of the Lord comes, a day to be feared.

  3782. Joe3:12 Let the nations be awake, and come to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there I will be seated as judge of all the nations round about.

  3783. Amo1:3 These are the words of the Lord: For three crimes of Damascus, and for four, I will not let its fate be changed; because they have been crushing Gilead with iron grain-crushing instruments.

  3784. Amo1:11 These are the words of the Lord: For three crimes of Edom, and for four, I will not let its fate be changed; because his sword was turned against his brother, without pity, and his wrath was burning at all times, and he was angry for ever.

  3785. Amo1:13 These are the words of the Lord: For three crimes of the children of Ammon, and for four, I will not let its fate be changed; because in Gilead they had women with child cut open, so that they might make wider the limits of their land.

  3786. Amo2:1 These are the words of the Lord: For three crimes of Moab, and for four, I will not let its fate be changed; because he had the bones of the king of Edom burned to dust.

  3787. Amo2:4 These are the words of the Lord: For three crimes of Judah, and for four, I will not let its fate be changed; because they have given up the law of the Lord, and have not kept his rules; and their false ways, in which their fathers went, have made them go out of the right way.

  3788. Amo2:6 These are the words of the Lord: For three crimes of Israel, and for four, I will not let its fate be changed; because they have given the upright man for silver, and the poor for the price of two shoes;

  3789. Amo2:10 And I took you up out of the land of Egypt, guiding you for forty years in the waste land, so that you might take for your heritage the land of the Amorite.

  3790. Amo2:12 But to those who were separate you gave wine for drink; and to the prophets you said, Be prophets no longer.

  3791. Amo3:1 Give ear to this word which the Lord has said against you, O children of Israel, against all the family which I took up out of the land of Egypt, saying,

  3792. Amo3:5 Is it possible for a bird to be taken in a net on the earth where no net has been put for him? will the net come up from the earth if it has taken nothing at all?

  3793. Amo3:10 For they have no knowledge of how to do what is right, says the Lord, who are storing up violent acts and destruction in their great houses.

  3794. Amo3:14 For in the day when I give Israel punishment for his sins, I will send punishment on the altars of Beth-el, and the horns of the altar will be cut off and come down to the earth.

  3795. Amo4:4 Come to Beth-el and do evil; to Gilgal, increasing the number of your sins; come with your offerings every morning and your tenths every three days:

  3796. Amo4:8 So two or three towns went wandering to one town looking for water, and did not get enough: and still you have not come back to me, says the Lord.

  3797. Amo4:12 So this is what I will do to you, O Israel: and because I will do this to you, be ready for a meeting with your God, O Israel.

  3798. Amo5:2 The virgin of Israel has been made low, never again to be lifted up: she is stretched out by herself on her land; there is no one to put her on her feet again.

  3799. Amo5:5 Do not be looking for help to Beth-el, and do not go to Gilgal, or make your way to Beer-sheba: for Gilgal will certainly be taken prisoner, and Beth-el will come to nothing.

  3800. Amo6:3 You who put far away the evil day, causing the rule of the violent to come near;

  3801. Amo6:14 For see, I will send against you a nation, O Israel, says the Lord, the God of armies, ruling you cruelly from the way into Hamath as far as the stream of the Arabah.

  3802. Amo7:1 This is what the Lord God let me see: and I saw that, when the growth of the late grass was starting, he made locusts; it was the late growth after the king's cutting was done.

  3803. Amo7:2 And it came about that after they had taken all the grass of the land, I said, O Lord God, have mercy: how will Jacob be able to keep his place? for he is small.

  3804. Amo7:4 This is what the Lord let me see: and I saw that the Lord God sent for a great fire to be the instrument of his punishment; and, after burning up the great deep, it was about to put an end to the Lord's heritage.

  3805. Amo7:8 And the Lord said to me, Amos, what do you see? And I said, A weighted line. Then the Lord said, See, I will let down a weighted line among my people Israel; never again will my eyes be shut to their sin:

  3806. Amo7:10 Then Amaziah, the priest of Beth-el, sent to Jeroboam, king of Israel, saying, Amos has made designs against you among the people of Israel: the land is troubled by his words.

  3807. Amo7:11 For Amos has said, Jeroboam will be put to the sword, and Israel will certainly be taken away as a prisoner out of his land.

  3808. Amo7:17 So this is what the Lord has said: Your wife will be a loose woman in the town, and your sons and your daughters will be put to the sword, and your land will be cut up into parts by a line; and you yourself will come to your end in an unclean land, and Israel will certainly be taken away a prisoner out of his land.

  3809. Amo8:2 And he said, Amos, what do you see? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then the Lord said to me, The end has come to my people Israel; never again will my eyes be shut to their sin.

  3810. Amo8:5 Saying, When will the new moon be gone, so that we may do trade in grain? and the Sabbath, so that we may put out in the market the produce of our fields? making the measure small and the price great, and trading falsely with scales of deceit;

  3811. Amo8:6 Getting the poor for silver, and him who is in need for the price of two shoes, and taking a price for the waste parts of the grain.

  3812. Amo8:11 See, the days are coming, says the Lord God, when I will send times of great need on the land, not need of food or desire for water, but for hearing the words of the Lord.

  3813. Oba1:3 You have been tricked by the pride of your heart, O you whose living-place is in the cracks of the rock, whose house is high up; who has said in his heart, Who will make me come down to earth?

  3814. Oba1:4 Though you go up on high like an eagle, though your house is placed among the stars, I will make you come down from there, says the Lord.

  3815. Oba1:11 Because you were there watching when men from other lands took away his goods, and strange men came into his doors, and put the fate of Jerusalem to the decision of chance; you were like one of them.
