01-50:4†††† And when the days of his mourning were past, Joseph spake unto the house of Pharaoh, saying, If now I have found grace in your eyes, speak, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,

 

01-50:5†††† My father made me swear, saying, Lo, I die: in my grave which I have digged for me in the land of Canaan, there shalt thou bury me. Now therefore let me go up, I pray thee, and bury my father, and I will come again.

02-3:17†††† And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt unto the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, unto a land flowing with milk and honey.

 

02-4:11†††† And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made manís mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?

 

02-4:21†††† And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go.

02-6:12†††† And Moses spake before the LORD, saying, Behold, the children of Israel have not hearkened unto me; how then shall Pharaoh hear me, who am of uncircumcised lips?

 

02-7:1††††† And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.

 

02-9:16†††† And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.

02-12:17††† And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever.

02-16:3†††† And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.

 

02-16:12††† I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: speak unto them, saying, At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye shall be filled with bread; and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God.

 

02-16:32††† And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commandeth, Fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations; that they may see the bread wherewith I have fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt.

02-18:16††† When they have a matter, they come unto me; and I judge between one and another, and I do make them know the statutes of God, and his laws.

 

02-19:4†††† Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eaglesí wings, and brought you unto myself.

 

02-20:2†††† I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

 

02-20:3†††† Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

 

02-20:22††† And the LORD said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.

 

02-21:4†††† If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her masterís, and he shall go out by himself.

 

02-21:8†††† If she please not her master, who hath betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a strange nation he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her.

 

02-21:9†††† And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.

 

02-21:31††† Whether he have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according to this judgment shall it be done unto him.

 

02-22:3†††† If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed for him; for he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.

 

02-22:8†††† If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall be brought unto the judges, to see whether he have put his hand unto his neighbourís goods.

 

02-23:13††† And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.

 

02-23:20††† Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.

 

02-24:12††† And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

 

02-24:14††† And he said unto the elders, Tarry ye here for us, until we come again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any man have any matters to do, let him come unto them.

 

02-26:2†††† The length of one curtain shall be eight and twenty cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: and every one of the curtains shall have one measure.

 

02-28:3†††† And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaronís garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priestís office.

 

02-28:7†††† It shall have the two shoulder pieces thereof joined at the two edges thereof; and so it shall be joined together.

 

02-28:32††† And there shall be an hole in the top of it, in the midst thereof: it shall have a binding of woven work round about the hole of it, as it were the hole of an habergeon, that it be not rent.

 

02-29:35††† And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron, and to his sons, according to all things which I have commanded thee: seven days shalt thou consecrate them.

 

02-31:2†††† See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:

 

02-31:3†††† And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

 

02-31:6†††† And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee;

 

02-31:11††† And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy place: according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do.

 

02-32:7†††† And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:

 

02-32:8†††† They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

 

02-32:9†††† And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

 

02-32:13††† Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.

 

02-32:30††† And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto the LORD; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin.

 

02-32:31††† And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.

 

02-32:34††† Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.

 

02-33:13††† Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.

 

02-33:16††† For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.

 

02-34:9†††† And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O Lord, let my Lord, I pray thee, go among us; for it is a stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine inheritance.

 

02-34:10††† And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.

 

02-34:27††† And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.

 

03-LEVITICUS

03-4:13†††† And if the whole congregation of Israel sin through ignorance, and the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done somewhat against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty;

 

03-4:14†††† When the sin, which they have sinned against it, is known, then the congregation shall offer a young bullock for the sin, and bring him before the tabernacle of the congregation.

 

03-6:3††††† Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein:

 

03-6:17†††† It shall not be baken with leaven. I have given it unto them for their portion of my offerings made by fire; it is most holy, as is the sin offering, and as the trespass offering.

 

03-7:7††††† As the sin offering is, so is the trespass offering: there is one law for them: the priest that maketh atonement therewith shall have it.

 

03-7:8††††† And the priest that offereth any manís burnt offering, even the priest shall have to himself the skin of the burnt offering which he hath offered.

 

03-7:10†††† And every meat offering, mingled with oil, and dry, shall all the sons of Aaron have, one as much as another.

 

03-7:33†††† He among the sons of Aaron, that offereth the blood of the peace offerings, and the fat, shall have the right shoulder for his part.

 

03-7:34†††† For the wave breast and the heave shoulder have I taken of the children of Israel from off the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and have given them unto Aaron the priest and unto his sons by a statute for ever from among the children of Israel.

 

03-10:17††† Wherefore have ye not eaten the sin offering in the holy place, seeing it is most holy, and God hath given it you to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before the LORD?

 

03-10:18††† Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy place: ye should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded.

 

03-10:19††† And Aaron said unto Moses, Behold, this day have they offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before the LORD; and such things have befallen me: and if I had eaten the sin offering to day, should it have been accepted in the sight of the LORD?

 

03-11:10††† And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:

 

03-11:11††† They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.

 

03-11:13††† And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,

 

03-11:21††† Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth;

 

03-11:23††† But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.

 

03-12:2†††† Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean.

 

03-13:2†††† When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague of leprosy; then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests:

 

03-13:10††† And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the rising be white in the skin, and it have turned the hair white, and there be quick raw flesh in the rising;

 

03-13:13††† Then the priest shall consider: and, behold, if the leprosy have covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce him clean that hath the plague: it is all turned white: he is clean.

 

03-13:24††† Or if there be any flesh, in the skin whereof there is a hot burning, and the quick flesh that burneth have a white bright spot, somewhat reddish, or white;

 

03-13:29††† If a man or woman have a plague upon the head or the beard;

 

03-13:38††† If a man also or a woman have in the skin of their flesh bright spots, even white bright spots;

 

03-13:55††† And the priest shall look on the plague, after that it is washed: and, behold, if the plague have not changed his colour, and the plague be not spread; it is unclean; thou shalt burn it in the fire; it is fret inward, whether it be bare within or without.

 

03-15:19††† And if a woman have an issue, and her issue in her flesh be blood, she shall be put apart seven days: and whosoever toucheth her shall be unclean until the even.

 

03-15:25††† And if a woman have an issue of her blood many days out of the time of her separation, or if it run beyond the time of her separation; all the days of the issue of her uncleanness shall be as the days of her separation: she shall be unclean.

 

03-16:4†††† He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on.

 

03-16:17††† And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel.

 

03-17:7†††† And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be a statute for ever unto them throughout their generations.

 

03-17:11††† For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

 

03-18:27††† (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)

 

03-19:23††† And when ye shall come into the land, and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then ye shall count the fruit thereof as uncircumcised: three years shall it be as uncircumcised unto you: it shall not be eaten of.

 

03-19:31††† Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.

 

03-19:36††† Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.

 

03-20:6†††† And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

 

03-20:12††† And if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be upon them.

 

03-20:13††† If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

 

03-20:24††† But I have said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and honey: I am the LORD your God, which have separated you from other people.

 

03-20:25††† Ye shall therefore put difference between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing that creepeth on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean.

 

03-20:26††† And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.

 

03-22:13††† But if the priestís daughter be a widow, or divorced, and have no child, and is returned unto her fatherís house, as in her youth, she shall eat of her fatherís meat: but there shall no stranger eat thereof.

 

03-23:7†††† In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

 

03-23:14††† And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

 

03-23:24††† Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.

 

03-23:39††† Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.

 

03-24:22††† Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the LORD your God.

 

03-25:26††† And if the man have none to redeem it, and himself be able to redeem it;

 

03-25:31††† But the houses of the villages which have no wall round about them shall be counted as the fields of the country: they may be redeemed, and they shall go out in the jubile.

 

03-25:44††† Both thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids, which thou shalt have, shall be of the heathen that are round about you; of them shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids.

 

03-26:9†††† For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, and establish my covenant with you.

 

03-26:13††† I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright.

 

03-26:26††† And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.

 

03-26:37††† And they shall fall one upon another, as it were before a sword, when none pursueth: and ye shall have no power to stand before your enemies.

 

03-26:40††† If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me;

 

03-26:41††† And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:

 

03-27:20††† And if he will not redeem the field, or if he have sold the field to another man, it shall not be redeemed any more.

 

04-NUMBERS

04-3:12†††† And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all the firstborn that openeth the matrix among the children of Israel: therefore the Levites shall be mine;

 

04-3:32†††† And Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest shall be chief over the chief of the Levites, and have the oversight of them that keep the charge of the sanctuary.

 

04-4:15†††† And when Aaron and his sons have made an end of covering the sanctuary, and all the vessels of the sanctuary, as the camp is to set forward; after that, the sons of Kohath shall come to bear it: but they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die. These things are the burden of the sons of Kohath in the tabernacle of the congregation.

 

04-5:7††††† Then they shall confess their sin which they have done: and he shall recompense his trespass with the principal thereof, and add unto it the fifth part thereof, and give it unto him against whom he hath trespassed.

 

04-5:8††††† But if the man have no kinsman to recompense the trespass unto, let the trespass be recompensed unto the LORD, even to the priest; beside the ram of the atonement, whereby an atonement shall be made for him.

 

04-5:18†††† And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and uncover the womanís head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which is the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that causeth the curse:

 

04-5:19†††† And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness with another instead of thy husband, be thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse:

 

04-5:20†††† But if thou hast gone aside to another instead of thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee beside thine husband:

 

04-5:27†††† And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people.

 

04-8:16†††† For they are wholly given unto me from among the children of Israel; instead of such as open every womb, even instead of the firstborn of all the children of Israel, have I taken them unto me.

 

04-8:18†††† And I have taken the Levites for all the firstborn of the children of Israel.

 

04-8:19†††† And I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and to his sons from among the children of Israel, to do the service of the children of Israel in the tabernacle of the congregation, and to make an atonement for the children of Israel: that there be no plague among the children of Israel, when the children of Israel come nigh unto the sanctuary.

 

04-9:14†††† And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the passover unto the LORD; according to the ordinance of the passover, and according to the manner thereof, so shall he do: ye shall have one ordinance, both for the stranger, and for him that was born in the land.

 

04-11:11††† And Moses said unto the LORD, Wherefore hast thou afflicted thy servant? and wherefore have I not found favour in thy sight, that thou layest the burden of all this people upon me?

 

04-11:12††† Have I conceived all this people? have I begotten them, that thou shouldest say unto me, Carry them in thy bosom, as a nursing father beareth the sucking child, unto the land which thou swarest unto their fathers?

 

04-11:13††† Whence should I have flesh to give unto all this people? for they weep unto me, saying, Give us flesh, that we may eat.

 

04-11:15††† And if thou deal thus with me, kill me, I pray thee, out of hand, if I have found favour in thy sight; and let me not see my wretchedness.

 

04-11:18††† And say thou unto the people, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow, and ye shall eat flesh: for ye have wept in the ears of the LORD, saying, Who shall give us flesh to eat? for it was well with us in Egypt: therefore the LORD will give you flesh, and ye shall eat.

 

04-11:20††† But even a whole month, until it come out at your nostrils, and it be loathsome unto you: because that ye have despised the LORD which is among you, and have wept before him, saying, Why came we forth out of Egypt?

 

04-12:11††† And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech thee, lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and wherein we have sinned.

 

04-13:32††† And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.

 

04-14:11††† And the LORD said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?

 

04-14:14††† And they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land: for they have heard that thou LORD art among this people, that thou LORD art seen face to face, and that thy cloud standeth over them, and that thou goest before them, by day time in a pillar of a cloud, and in a pillar of fire by night.

 

04-14:15††† Now if thou shalt kill all this people as one man, then the nations which have heard the fame of thee will speak, saying,

 

04-14:20††† And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to thy word:

 

04-14:22††† Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice;

 

04-14:27††† How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.

 

04-14:28††† Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:

 

04-14:29††† Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me,

 

04-14:31††† But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised.

 

04-14:35††† I the LORD have said, I will surely do it unto all this evil congregation, that are gathered together against me: in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.

 

04-14:40††† And they rose up early in the morning, and gat them up into the top of the mountain, saying, Lo, we be here, and will go up unto the place which the LORD hath promised: for we have sinned.

 

04-15:22††† And if ye have erred, and not observed all these commandments, which the LORD hath spoken unto Moses,

 

04-15:29††† Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them.

 

04-16:15††† And Moses was very wroth, and said unto the LORD, Respect not thou their offering: I have not taken one ass from them, neither have I hurt one of them.

 

04-16:28††† And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that the LORD hath sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own mind.

 

04-16:30††† But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD.

 

04-16:41††† But on the morrow all the congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, Ye have killed the people of the LORD.

 

04-18:6†††† And I, behold, I have taken your brethren the Levites from among the children of Israel: to you they are given as a gift for the LORD, to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.

 

04-18:7†††† Therefore thou and thy sons with thee shall keep your priestís office for every thing of the altar, and within the vail; and ye shall serve: I have given your priestís office unto you as a service of gift: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

 

04-18:8†††† And the LORD spake unto Aaron, Behold, I also have given thee the charge of mine heave offerings of all the hallowed things of the children of Israel; unto thee have I given them by reason of the anointing, and to thy sons, by an ordinance for ever.

 

04-18:11††† And this is thine; the heave offering of their gift, with all the wave offerings of the children of Israel: I have given them unto thee, and to thy sons and to thy daughters with thee, by a statute for ever: every one that is clean in thy house shall eat of it.

 

04-18:12††† All the best of the oil, and all the best of the wine, and of the wheat, the firstfruits of them which they shall offer unto the LORD, them have I given thee.

 

04-18:19††† All the heave offerings of the holy things, which the children of Israel offer unto the LORD, have I given thee, and thy sons and thy daughters with thee, by a statute for ever: it is a covenant of salt for ever before the LORD unto thee and to thy seed with thee.

 

04-18:20††† And the LORD spake unto Aaron, Thou shalt have no inheritance in their land, neither shalt thou have any part among them: I am thy part and thine inheritance among the children of Israel.

 

04-18:21††† And, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, even the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.

 

04-18:23††† But the Levites shall do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they shall bear their iniquity: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations, that among the children of Israel they have no inheritance.

 

04-18:24††† But the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer as an heave offering unto the LORD, I have given to the Levites to inherit: therefore I have said unto them, Among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance.

 

04-18:26††† Thus speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When ye take of the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then ye shall offer up an heave offering of it for the LORD, even a tenth part of the tithe.

 

04-18:30††† Therefore thou shalt say unto them, When ye have heaved the best thereof from it, then it shall be counted unto the Levites as the increase of the threshingfloor, and as the increase of the winepress.

 

04-18:32††† And ye shall bear no sin by reason of it, when ye have heaved from it the best of it: neither shall ye pollute the holy things of the children of Israel, lest ye die.

 

04-20:4†††† And why have ye brought up the congregation of the LORD into this wilderness, that we and our cattle should die there?

 

04-20:5†††† And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to bring us in unto this evil place? it is no place of seed, or of figs, or of vines, or of pomegranates; neither is there any water to drink.

 

04-20:12††† And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.

 

04-20:15††† How our fathers went down into Egypt, and we have dwelt in Egypt a long time; and the Egyptians vexed us, and our fathers:

 

04-20:17††† Let us pass, I pray thee, through thy country: we will not pass through the fields, or through the vineyards, neither will we drink of the water of the wells: we will go by the kingís high way, we will not turn to the right hand nor to the left, until we have passed thy borders.

 

04-20:24††† Aaron shall be gathered unto his people: for he shall not enter into the land which I have given unto the children of Israel, because ye rebelled against my word at the water of Meribah.

 

04-21:5†††† And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.

 

04-21:7†††† Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.

 

04-21:30††† We have shot at them; Heshbon is perished even unto Dibon, and we have laid them waste even unto Nophah, which reacheth unto Medeba.

 

04-21:34††† And the LORD said unto Moses, Fear him not: for I have delivered him into thy hand, and all his people, and his land; and thou shalt do to him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.

 

04-22:28††† And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?

 

04-22:34††† And Balaam said unto the angel of the LORD, I have sinned; for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore, if it displease thee, I will get me back again.

 

04-22:38††† And Balaam said unto Balak, Lo, I am come unto thee: have I now any power at all to say any thing? the word that God putteth in my mouth, that shall I speak.

 

04-23:4†††† And God met Balaam: and he said unto him, I have prepared seven altars, and I have offered upon every altar a bullock and a ram.

 

04-23:20††† Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.

 

04-24:19††† Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and shall destroy him that remaineth of the city.

 

04-25:13††† And he shall have it, and his seed after him, even the covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was zealous for his God, and made an atonement for the children of Israel.

 

04-25:18††† For they vex you with their wiles, wherewith they have beguiled you in the matter of Peor, and in the matter of Cozbi, the daughter of a prince of Midian, their sister, which was slain in the day of the plague for Peorís sake.

 

04-27:8†††† And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a man die, and have no son, then ye shall cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter.

 

04-27:9†††† And if he have no daughter, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren.

 

04-27:10††† And if he have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his fatherís brethren.

 

04-27:11††† And if his father have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall possess it: and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute of judgment, as the LORD commanded Moses.

 

04-27:12††† And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel.

 

04-27:17††† Which may go out before them, and which may go in before them, and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd.

 

04-28:25††† And on the seventh day ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work.

 

04-28:26††† Also in the day of the firstfruits, when ye bring a new meat offering unto the LORD, after your weeks be out, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work:

 

04-29:1†††† And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you.

 

04-29:7†††† And ye shall have on the tenth day of this seventh month an holy convocation; and ye shall afflict your souls: ye shall not do any work therein:

 

04-29:12††† And on the fifteenth day of the seventh month ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work, and ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days:

 

04-29:35††† On the eighth day ye shall have a solemn assembly: ye shall do no servile work therein:

 

04-30:9†††† But every vow of a widow, and of her that is divorced, wherewith they have bound their souls, shall stand against her.

 

04-31:15††† And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?

 

04-31:18††† But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

 

04-31:49††† And they said unto Moses, Thy servants have taken the sum of the men of war which are under our charge, and there lacketh not one man of us.

 

04-31:50††† We have therefore brought an oblation for the LORD, what every man hath gotten, of jewels of gold, chains, and bracelets, rings, earrings, and tablets, to make an atonement for our souls before the LORD.

 

04-32:4†††† Even the country which the LORD smote before the congregation of Israel, is a land for cattle, and thy servants have cattle:

 

04-32:5†††† Wherefore, said they, if we have found grace in thy sight, let this land be given unto thy servants for a possession, and bring us not over Jordan.

 

04-32:11††† Surely none of the men that came up out of Egypt, from twenty years old and upward, shall see the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob; because they have not wholly followed me:

 

04-32:12††† Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite, and Joshua the son of Nun: for they have wholly followed the LORD.

 

04-32:17††† But we ourselves will go ready armed before the children of Israel, until we have brought them unto their place: and our little ones shall dwell in the fenced cities because of the inhabitants of the land.

 

04-32:18††† We will not return unto our houses, until the children of Israel have inherited every man his inheritance.

 

04-32:23††† But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out.

 

04-32:30††† But if they will not pass over with you armed, they shall have possessions among you in the land of Canaan.

 

04-33:53††† And ye shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it.

 

04-34:6†††† And as for the western border, ye shall even have the great sea for a border: this shall be your west border.

 

04-34:14††† For the tribe of the children of Reuben according to the house of their fathers, and the tribe of the children of Gad according to the house of their fathers, have received their inheritance; and half the tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance:

 

04-34:15††† The two tribes and the half tribe have received their inheritance on this side Jordan near Jericho eastward, toward the sunrising.

 

04-35:3†††† And the cities shall they have to dwell in; and the suburbs of them shall be for their cattle, and for their goods, and for all their beasts.

 

04-35:8†††† And the cities which ye shall give shall be of the possession of the children of Israel: from them that have many ye shall give many; but from them that have few ye shall give few: every one shall give of his cities unto the Levites according to his inheritance which he inheriteth.

 

04-35:13††† And of these cities which ye shall give six cities shall ye have for refuge.

 

04-35:22††† But if he thrust him suddenly without enmity, or have cast upon him any thing without laying of wait,

 

04-35:28††† Because he should have remained in the city of his refuge until the death of the high priest: but after the death of the high priest the slayer shall return into the land of his possession.

 

05-DEUTERONOMY

05-1:6††††† The LORD our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount:

 

05-1:8††††† Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.

 

05-1:28†††† Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people is greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there.

 

05-1:41†††† Then ye answered and said unto me, We have sinned against the LORD, we will go up and fight, according to all that the LORD our God commanded us. And when ye had girded on every man his weapons of war, ye were ready to go up into the hill.

 

05-2:3††††† Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward.

 

05-2:5††††† Meddle not with them; for I will not give you of their land, no, not so much as a foot breadth; because I have given mount Seir unto Esau for a possession.

 

05-2:9††††† And the LORD said unto me, Distress not the Moabites, neither contend with them in battle: for I will not give thee of their land for a possession; because I have given Ar unto the children of Lot for a possession.

 

05-2:19†††† And when thou comest nigh over against the children of Ammon, distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give thee of the land of the children of Ammon any possession; because I have given it unto the children of Lot for a possession.

 

05-2:24†††† Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle.

 

05-2:31†††† And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have begun to give Sihon and his land before thee: begin to possess, that thou mayest inherit his land.

 

05-3:19†††† But your wives, and your little ones, and your cattle, (for I know that ye have much cattle,) shall abide in your cities which I have given you;

 

05-3:20†††† Until the LORD have given rest unto your brethren, as well as unto you, and until they also possess the land which the LORD your God hath given them beyond Jordan: and then shall ye return every man unto his possession, which I have given you.

 

05-3:21†††† And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, Thine eyes have seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto these two kings: so shall the LORD do unto all the kingdoms whither thou passest.

 

05-4:3††††† Your eyes have seen what the LORD did because of Baalpeor: for all the men that followed Baalpeor, the LORD thy God hath destroyed them from among you.

 

05-4:5††††† Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.

 

05-4:9††††† Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sonsí sons;

 

05-4:25†††† When thou shalt beget children, and childrenís children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil in the sight of the LORD thy God, to provoke him to anger:

 

05-5:7††††† Thou shalt have none other gods before me.

 

05-5:24†††† And ye said, Behold, the LORD our God hath shewed us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth.

 

05-5:26†††† For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?

 

05-5:28†††† And the LORD heard the voice of your words, when ye spake unto me; and the LORD said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken unto thee: they have well said all that they have spoken.

 

05-6:10†††† And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not,

 

05-6:11†††† And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full;

 

05-7:16†††† And thou shalt consume all the people which the LORD thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare unto thee.

 

05-7:24†††† And he shall deliver their kings into thine hand, and thou shalt destroy their name from under heaven: there shall no man be able to stand before thee, until thou have destroyed them.

 

05-9:7††††† Remember, and forget not, how thou provokedst the LORD thy God to wrath in the wilderness: from the day that thou didst depart out of the land of Egypt, until ye came unto this place, ye have been rebellious against the LORD.

 

05-9:8††††† Also in Horeb ye provoked the LORD to wrath, so that the LORD was angry with you to have destroyed you.

 

05-9:12†††† And the LORD said unto me, Arise, get thee down quickly from hence; for thy people which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt have corrupted themselves; they are quickly turned aside out of the way which I commanded them; they have made them a molten image.

 

05-9:13†††† Furthermore the LORD spake unto me, saying, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

 

05-9:20†††† And the LORD was very angry with Aaron to have destroyed him: and I prayed for Aaron also the same time.

 

05-9:23†††† Likewise when the LORD sent you from Kadeshbarnea, saying, Go up and possess the land which I have given you; then ye rebelled against the commandment of the LORD your God, and ye believed him not, nor hearkened to his voice.

 

05-9:24†††† Ye have been rebellious against the LORD from the day that I knew you.

 

05-10:21††† He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen.

 

05-11:2†††† And know ye this day: for I speak not with your children which have not known, and which have not seen the chastisement of the LORD your God, his greatness, his mighty hand, and his stretched out arm,

 

05-11:7†††† But your eyes have seen all the great acts of the LORD which he did.

 

05-11:28††† And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.

 

05-12:21††† If the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to put his name there be too far from thee, then thou shalt kill of thy herd and of thy flock, which the LORD hath given thee, as I have commanded thee, and thou shalt eat in thy gates whatsoever thy soul lusteth after.

 

05-12:31††† Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.

 

05-13:13††† Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known;

 

05-13:17††† And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers;

 

05-14:9†††† These ye shall eat of all that are in the waters: all that have fins and scales shall ye eat:

 

05-15:21††† And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be lame, or blind, or have any ill blemish, thou shalt not sacrifice it unto the LORD thy God.

 

05-17:3†††† And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;

 

05-17:5†††† Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.

 

05-18:1†††† The priests the Levites, and all the tribe of Levi, shall have no part nor inheritance with Israel: they shall eat the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and his inheritance.

 

05-18:2†††† Therefore shall they have no inheritance among their brethren: the LORD is their inheritance, as he hath said unto them.

 

05-18:8†††† They shall have like portions to eat, beside that which cometh of the sale of his patrimony.

 

05-18:17††† And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.

 

05-18:20††† But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

 

05-19:14††† Thou shalt not remove thy neighbourís landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it.

 

05-19:19††† Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

 

05-20:9†††† And it shall be, when the officers have made an end of speaking unto the people, that they shall make captains of the armies to lead the people.

 

05-20:18††† That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the LORD your God.

 

05-21:7†††† And they shall answer and say, Our hands have not shed this blood, neither have our eyes seen it.

 

05-21:11††† And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife;

 

05-21:14††† And it shall be, if thou have no delight in her, then thou shalt let her go whither she will; but thou shalt not sell her at all for money, thou shalt not make merchandise of her, because thou hast humbled her.

 

05-21:15††† If a man have two wives, one beloved, and another hated, and they have born him children, both the beloved and the hated; and if the firstborn son be hers that was hated:

 

05-21:18††† If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:

 

05-21:22††† And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be to be put to death, and thou hang him on a tree:

 

05-23:12††† Thou shalt have a place also without the camp, whither thou shalt go forth abroad:

 

05-23:13††† And thou shalt have a paddle upon thy weapon; and it shall be, when thou wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee:

 

05-25:5†††† If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her husbandís brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husbandís brother unto her.

 

05-25:13††† Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a small.

 

05-25:14††† Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small.

 

05-25:15††† But thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shalt thou have: that thy days may be lengthened in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

 

05-26:10††† And now, behold, I have brought the firstfruits of the land, which thou, O LORD, hast given me. And thou shalt set it before the LORD thy God, and worship before the LORD thy God:

 

05-26:13††† Then thou shalt say before the LORD thy God, I have brought away the hallowed things out of mine house, and also have given them unto the Levite, and unto the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all thy commandments which thou hast commanded me: I have not transgressed thy commandments, neither have I forgotten them:

 

05-26:14††† I have not eaten thereof in my mourning, neither have I taken away ought thereof for any unclean use, nor given ought thereof for the dead: but I have hearkened to the voice of the LORD my God, and have done according to all that thou hast commanded me.

 

05-28:21††† The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it.

 

05-28:31††† Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them.

 

05-28:36††† The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.

 

05-28:40††† Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall cast his fruit.

 

05-28:48††† Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

 

05-28:51††† And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.

 

05-28:64††† And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.

 

05-28:65††† And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:

 

05-28:66††† And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:

 

05-29:2†††† And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land;

 

05-29:3†††† The great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the signs, and those great miracles:

 

05-29:5†††† And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy foot.

 

05-29:6†††† Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong drink: that ye might know that I am the LORD your God.

 

05-29:16††† (For ye know how we have dwelt in the land of Egypt; and how we came through the nations which ye passed by;

 

05-29:17††† And ye have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them:)

 

05-29:19††† And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness to thirst:

 

05-29:25††† Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD God of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them forth out of the land of Egypt:

 

05-30:1†††† And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee,

 

05-30:3†††† That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.

 

05-30:15††† See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

 

05-30:19††† I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

 

05-31:5†††† And the LORD shall give them up before your face, that ye may do unto them according unto all the commandments which I have commanded you.

 

05-31:13††† And that their children, which have not known any thing, may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.

 

05-31:16††† And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them.

 

05-31:18††† And I will surely hide my face in that day for all the evils which they shall have wrought, in that they are turned unto other gods.

 

05-31:20††† For when I shall have brought them into the land which I sware unto their fathers, that floweth with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen fat; then will they turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and break my covenant.

 

05-31:21††† And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I know their imagination which they go about, even now, before I have brought them into the land which I sware.

 

05-31:27††† For I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the LORD; and how much more after my death?

 

05-31:29††† For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands.

 

05-32:5†††† They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.

 

05-32:21††† They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.

 

05-33:9†††† Who said unto his father and to his mother, I have not seen him; neither did he acknowledge his brethren, nor knew his own children: for they have observed thy word, and kept thy covenant.

 

05-34:4†††† And the LORD said unto him, This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither.

06-1:3††††† Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.

 

06-1:8††††† This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

 

06-1:9††††† Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

 

06-1:15†††† Until the LORD have given your brethren rest, as he hath given you, and they also have possessed the land which the LORD your God giveth them: then ye shall return unto the land of your possession, and enjoy it, which Moses the LORDíS servant gave you on this side Jordan toward the sunrising.

 

06-2:10†††† For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed.

 

06-2:12†††† Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the LORD, since I have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shew kindness unto my fatherís house, and give me a true token:

 

06-2:13†††† And that ye will save alive my father, and my mother, and my brethren, and my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death.

 

06-3:4††††† Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed this way heretofore.

 

06-5:9††††† And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day.

 

06-6:2††††† And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour.

 

06-7:11†††† Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed my covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff.

 

06-7:20†††† And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done:

 

06-8:1††††† And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed: take all the people of war with thee, and arise, go up to Ai: see, I have given into thy hand the king of Ai, and his people, and his city, and his land:

 

06-8:6††††† (For they will come out after us) till we have drawn them from the city; for they will say, They flee before us, as at the first: therefore we will flee before them.

 

06-8:8††††† And it shall be, when ye have taken the city, that ye shall set the city on fire: according to the commandment of the LORD shall ye do. See, I have commanded you.

 

06-9:9††††† And they said unto him, From a very far country thy servants are come because of the name of the LORD thy God: for we have heard the fame of him, and all that he did in Egypt,

 

06-9:19†††† But all the princes said unto all the congregation, We have sworn unto them by the LORD God of Israel: now therefore we may not touch them.

 

06-9:22†††† And Joshua called for them, and he spake unto them, saying, Wherefore have ye beguiled us, saying, We are very far from you; when ye dwell among us?

 

06-9:24†††† And they answered Joshua, and said, Because it was certainly told thy servants, how that the LORD thy God commanded his servant Moses to give you all the land, and to destroy all the inhabitants of the land from before you, therefore we were sore afraid of our lives because of you, and have done this thing.

 

06-10:8†††† And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee.

 

06-11:20††† For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy them utterly, and that they might have no favour, but that he might destroy them, as the LORD commanded Moses.

 

06-13:6†††† All the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon unto Misrephothmaim, and all the Sidonians, them will I drive out from before the children of Israel: only divide thou it by lot unto the Israelites for an inheritance, as I have commanded thee.

 

06-13:8†††† With whom the Reubenites and the Gadites have received their inheritance, which Moses gave them, beyond Jordan eastward, even as Moses the servant of the LORD gave them;

 

06-14:9†††† And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy childrenís for ever, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God.

 

06-17:16††† And the children of Joseph said, The hill is not enough for us: and all the Canaanites that dwell in the land of the valley have chariots of iron, both they who are of Bethshean and her towns, and they who are of the valley of Jezreel.

 

06-17:17††† And Joshua spake unto the house of Joseph, even to Ephraim and to Manasseh, saying, Thou art a great people, and hast great power: thou shalt not have one lot only:

 

06-17:18††† But the mountain shall be thine; for it is a wood, and thou shalt cut it down: and the outgoings of it shall be thine: for thou shalt drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots, and though they be strong.

 

06-18:7†††† But the Levites have no part among you; for the priesthood of the LORD is their inheritance: and Gad, and Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh, have received their inheritance beyond Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them.

 

06-22:2†††† And said unto them, Ye have kept all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, and have obeyed my voice in all that I commanded you:

 

06-22:3†††† Ye have not left your brethren these many days unto this day, but have kept the charge of the commandment of the LORD your God.

 

06-22:11††† And the children of Israel heard say, Behold, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh have built an altar over against the land of Canaan, in the borders of Jordan, at the passage of the children of Israel.

 

06-22:16††† Thus saith the whole congregation of the LORD, What trespass is this that ye have committed against the God of Israel, to turn away this day from following the LORD, in that ye have builded you an altar, that ye might rebel this day against the LORD?

 

06-22:23††† That we have built us an altar to turn from following the LORD, or if to offer thereon burnt offering or meat offering, or if to offer peace offerings thereon, let the LORD himself require it;

 

06-22:24††† And if we have not rather done it for fear of this thing, saying, In time to come your children might speak unto our children, saying, What have ye to do with the LORD God of Israel?

 

06-22:25††† For the LORD hath made Jordan a border between us and you, ye children of Reuben and children of Gad; ye have no part in the LORD: so shall your children make our children cease from fearing the LORD.

 

06-22:27††† But that it may be a witness between us, and you, and our generations after us, that we might do the service of the LORD before him with our burnt offerings, and with our sacrifices, and with our peace offerings; that your children may not say to our children in time to come, Ye have no part in the LORD.

 

06-22:31††† And Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest said unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the children of Manasseh, This day we perceive that the LORD is among us, because ye have not committed this trespass against the LORD: now ye have delivered the children of Israel out of the hand of the LORD.

 

06-23:3†††† And ye have seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto all these nations because of you; for the LORD your God is he that hath fought for you.

 

06-23:4†††† Behold, I have divided unto you by lot these nations that remain, to be an inheritance for your tribes, from Jordan, with all the nations that I have cut off, even unto the great sea westward.

 

06-23:8†††† But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this day.

 

06-23:15††† Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which the LORD your God promised you; so shall the LORD bring upon you all evil things, until he have destroyed you from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you.

 

06-23:16††† When ye have transgressed the covenant of the LORD your God, which he commanded you, and have gone and served other gods, and bowed yourselves to them; then shall the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and ye shall perish quickly from off the good land which he hath given unto you.

 

06-24:7†††† And when they cried unto the LORD, he put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them, and covered them; and your eyes have seen what I have done in Egypt: and ye dwelt in the wilderness a long season.

 

06-24:13††† And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat.

 

06-24:22††† And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against yourselves that ye have chosen you the LORD, to serve him. And they said, We are witnesses.

 

07-JUDGES

07-1:2††††† And the LORD said, Judah shall go up: behold, I have delivered the land into his hand.

 

07-1:7††††† And Adonibezek said, Threescore and ten kings, having their thumbs and their great toes cut off, gathered their meat under my table: as I have done, so God hath requited me. And they brought him to Jerusalem, and there he died.

 

07-2:1††††† And an angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you.

 

07-2:2††††† And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this?

 

07-2:20†††† And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel; and he said, Because that this people hath transgressed my covenant which I commanded their fathers, and have not hearkened unto my voice;

 

07-3:19†††† But he himself turned again from the quarries that were by Gilgal, and said, I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said, Keep silence. And all that stood by him went out from him.

 

07-3:20†††† And Ehud came unto him; and he was sitting in a summer parlour, which he had for himself alone. And Ehud said, I have a message from God unto thee. And he arose out of his seat.

 

07-5:13†††† Then he made him that remaineth have dominion over the nobles among the people: the LORD made me have dominion over the mighty.

 

07-5:30†††† Have they not sped? have they not divided the prey; to every man a damsel or two; to Sisera a prey of divers colours, a prey of divers colours of needlework, of divers colours of needlework on both sides, meet for the necks of them that take the spoil?

 

07-6:10†††† And I said unto you, I am the LORD your God; fear not the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but ye have not obeyed my voice.

 

07-6:14†††† And the LORD looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee?

 

07-6:17†††† And he said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight, then shew me a sign that thou talkest with me.

 

07-6:22†††† And when Gideon perceived that he was an angel of the LORD, Gideon said, Alas, O Lord GOD! for because I have seen an angel of the LORD face to face.

 

07-7:9††††† And it came to pass the same night, that the LORD said unto him, Arise, get thee down unto the host; for I have delivered it into thine hand.

 

07-8:2††††† And he said unto them, What have I done now in comparison of you? Is not the gleaning of the grapes of Ephraim better than the vintage of Abiezer?

 

07-9:16†††† Now therefore, if ye have done truly and sincerely, in that ye have made Abimelech king, and if ye have dealt well with Jerubbaal and his house, and have done unto him according to the deserving of his hands;

 

07-9:18†††† And ye are risen up against my fatherís house this day, and have slain his sons, threescore and ten persons, upon one stone, and have made Abimelech, the son of his maidservant, king over the men of Shechem, because he is your brother;)

 

07-9:19†††† If ye then have dealt truly and sincerely with Jerubbaal and with his house this day, then rejoice ye in Abimelech, and let him also rejoice in you:

 

07-9:48†††† And Abimelech gat him up to mount Zalmon, he and all the people that were with him; and Abimelech took an ax in his hand, and cut down a bough from the trees, and took it, and laid it on his shoulder, and said unto the people that were with him, What ye have seen me do, make haste, and do as I have done.

 

07-10:10††† And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, saying, We have sinned against thee, both because we have forsaken our God, and also served Baalim.

 

07-10:13††† Yet ye have forsaken me, and served other gods: wherefore I will deliver you no more.

 

07-10:14††† Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.

 

07-10:15††† And the children of Israel said unto the LORD, We have sinned: do thou unto us whatsoever seemeth good unto thee; deliver us only, we pray thee, this day.

 

07-11:27††† Wherefore I have not sinned against thee, but thou doest me wrong to war against me: the LORD the Judge be judge this day between the children of Israel and the children of Ammon.

 

07-11:35††† And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! thou hast brought me very low, and thou art one of them that trouble me: for I have opened my mouth unto the LORD, and I cannot go back.

 

07-13:15††† And Manoah said unto the angel of the LORD, I pray thee, let us detain thee, until we shall have made ready a kid for thee.

 

07-13:22††† And Manoah said unto his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen God.

 

07-13:23††† But his wife said unto him, If the LORD were pleased to kill us, he would not have received a burnt offering and a meat offering at our hands, neither would he have shewed us all these things, nor would as at this time have told us such things as these.

 

07-14:2†††† And he came up, and told his father and his mother, and said, I have seen a woman in Timnath of the daughters of the Philistines: now therefore get her for me to wife.

 

07-14:6†††† And the spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand: but he told not his father or his mother what he had done.

 

07-14:15††† And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they said unto Samsonís wife, Entice thy husband, that he may declare unto us the riddle, lest we burn thee and thy fatherís house with fire: have ye called us to take that we have? is it not so?

 

07-14:16††† And Samsonís wife wept before him, and said, Thou dost but hate me, and lovest me not: thou hast put forth a riddle unto the children of my people, and hast not told it me. And he said unto her, Behold, I have not told it my father nor my mother, and shall I tell it thee?

 

07-15:7†††† And Samson said unto them, Though ye have done this, yet will I be avenged of you, and after that I will cease.

 

07-15:11††† Then three thousand men of Judah went to the top of the rock Etam, and said to Samson, Knowest thou not that the Philistines are rulers over us? what is this that thou hast done unto us? And he said unto them, As they did unto me, so have I done unto them.

 

07-15:16††† And Samson said, With the jawbone of an ass, heaps upon heaps, with the jaw of an ass have I slain a thousand men.

 

07-16:17††† That he told her all his heart, and said unto her, There hath not come a razor upon mine head; for I have been a Nazarite unto God from my motherís womb: if I be shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man.

 

07-17:13††† Then said Micah, Now know I that the LORD will do me good, seeing I have a Levite to my priest.

 

07-18:9†††† And they said, Arise, that we may go up against them: for we have seen the land, and, behold, it is very good: and are ye still? be not slothful to go, and to enter to possess the land.

 

07-18:14††† Then answered the five men that went to spy out the country of Laish, and said unto their brethren, Do ye know that there is in these houses an ephod, and teraphim, and a graven image, and a molten image? now therefore consider what ye have to do.

 

07-18:24††† And he said, Ye have taken away my gods which I made, and the priest, and ye are gone away: and what have I more? and what is this that ye say unto me, What aileth thee?

 

07-20:5†††† And the men of Gibeah rose against me, and beset the house round about upon me by night, and thought to have slain me: and my concubine have they forced, that she is dead.

 

07-20:6†††† And I took my concubine, and cut her in pieces, and sent her throughout all the country of the inheritance of Israel: for they have committed lewdness and folly in Israel.

 

07-20:10††† And we will take ten men of an hundred throughout all the tribes of Israel, and an hundred of a thousand, and a thousand out of ten thousand, to fetch victual for the people, that they may do, when they come to Gibeah of Benjamin, according to all the folly that they have wrought in Israel.

 

07-21:7†††† How shall we do for wives for them that remain, seeing we have sworn by the LORD that we will not give them of our daughters to wives?

 

07-21:18††† Howbeit we may not give them wives of our daughters: for the children of Israel have sworn, saying, Cursed be he that giveth a wife to Benjamin.

 

08-RUTH

08-1:8††††† And Naomi said unto her two daughters in law, Go, return each to her motherís house: the LORD deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me.

 

08-1:12†††† Turn again, my daughters, go your way; for I am too old to have an husband. If I should say, I have hope, if I should have an husband also to night, and should also bear sons;

 

08-2:9††††† Let thine eyes be on the field that they do reap, and go thou after them: have I not charged the young men that they shall not touch thee? and when thou art athirst, go unto the vessels, and drink of that which the young men have drawn.

 

08-2:10†††† Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, Why have I found grace in thine eyes, that thou shouldest take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger?

 

08-2:21†††† And Ruth the Moabitess said, He said unto me also, Thou shalt keep fast by my young men, until they have ended all my harvest.

 

08-3:3††††† Wash thy self therefore, and anoint thee, and put thy raiment upon thee, and get thee down to the floor: but make not thyself known unto the man, until he shall have done eating and drinking.

 

08-3:18†††† Then said she, Sit still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall: for the man will not be in rest, until he have finished the thing this day.

 

08-4:9††††† And Boaz said unto the elders, and unto all the people, Ye are witnesses this day, that I have bought all that was Elimelechís, and all that was Chilionís and Mahlonís, of the hand of Naomi.

 

08-4:10†††† Moreover Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, have I purchased to be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, and from the gate of his place: ye are witnesses this day.

 

09-1 SAMUEL

09-1:15†††† And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD.

 

09-1:16†††† Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto.

 

09-1:20†††† Wherefore it came to pass, when the time was come about after Hannah had conceived, that she bare a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, Because I have asked him of the LORD.

 

09-1:23†††† And Elkanah her husband said unto her, Do what seemeth thee good; tarry until thou have weaned him; only the LORD establish his word. So the woman abode, and gave her son suck until she weaned him.

 

09-1:28†††† Therefore also I have lent him to the LORD; as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the LORD. And he worshipped the LORD there.

 

09-2:5††††† They that were full have hired out themselves for bread; and they that were hungry ceased: so that the barren hath born seven; and she that hath many children is waxed feeble.

 

09-2:15†††† Also before they burnt the fat, the priestís servant came, and said to the man that sacrificed, Give flesh to roast for the priest; for he will not have sodden flesh of thee, but raw.

 

09-2:29†††† Wherefore kick ye at my sacrifice and at mine offering, which I have commanded in my habitation; and honourest thy sons above me, to make yourselves fat with the chiefest of all the offerings of Israel my people?

 

09-3:12†††† In that day I will perform against Eli all things which I have spoken concerning his house: when I begin, I will also make an end.

 

09-3:13†††† For I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth; because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not.

 

09-3:14†††† And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eliís house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering for ever.

 

09-4:9††††† Be strong, and quit yourselves like men, O ye Philistines, that ye be not servants unto the Hebrews, as they have been to you: quit yourselves like men, and fight.

 

09-5:10†††† Therefore they sent the ark of God to Ekron. And it came to pass, as the ark of God came to Ekron, that the Ekronites cried out, saying, They have brought about the ark of the God of Israel to us, to slay us and our people.

 

09-6:21†††† And they sent messengers to the inhabitants of Kirjathjearim, saying, The Philistines have brought again the ark of the LORD; come ye down, and fetch it up to you.

 

09-7:6††††† And they gathered together to Mizpeh, and drew water, and poured it out before the LORD, and fasted on that day, and said there, We have sinned against the LORD. And Samuel judged the children of Israel in Mizpeh.

 

09-8:7††††† And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.

 

09-8:8††††† According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.

 

09-8:18†††† And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.

 

09-8:19†††† Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;

 

09-9:7††††† Then said Saul to his servant, But, behold, if we go, what shall we bring the man? for the bread is spent in our vessels, and there is not a present to bring to the man of God: what have we?

 

09-9:8††††† And the servant answered Saul again, and said, Behold, I have here at hand the fourth part of a shekel of silver: that will I give to the man of God, to tell us our way.

 

09-9:16†††† To morrow about this time I will send thee a man out of the land of Benjamin, and thou shalt anoint him to be captain over my people Israel, that he may save my people out of the hand of the Philistines: for I have looked upon my people, because their cry is come unto me.

 

09-9:24†††† And the cook took up the shoulder, and that which was upon it, and set it before Saul. And Samuel said, Behold that which is left! set it before thee, and eat: for unto this time hath it been kept for thee since I said, I have invited the people. So Saul did eat with Samuel that day.

 

09-10:19††† And ye have this day rejected your God, who himself saved you out of all your adversities and your tribulations; and ye have said unto him, Nay, but set a king over us. Now therefore present yourselves before the LORD by your tribes, and by your thousands.

 

09-11:9†††† And they said unto the messengers that came, Thus shall ye say unto the men of Jabeshgilead, To morrow, by that time the sun be hot, ye shall have help. And the messengers came and shewed it to the men of Jabesh; and they were glad.

 

09-12:1†††† And Samuel said unto all Israel, Behold, I have hearkened unto your voice in all that ye said unto me, and have made a king over you.

 

09-12:2†††† And now, behold, the king walketh before you: and I am old and grayheaded; and, behold, my sons are with you: and I have walked before you from my childhood unto this day.

 

09-12:3†††† Behold, here I am: witness against me before the LORD, and before his anointed: whose ox have I taken? or whose ass have I taken? or whom have I defrauded? whom have I oppressed? or of whose hand have I received any bribe to blind mine eyes therewith? and I will restore it you.

 

09-12:5†††† And he said unto them, The LORD is witness against you, and his anointed is witness this day, that ye have not found ought in my hand. And they answered, He is witness.

 

09-12:10††† And they cried unto the LORD, and said, We have sinned, because we have forsaken the LORD, and have served Baalim and Ashtaroth: but now deliver us out of the hand of our enemies, and we will serve thee.

 

09-12:13††† Now therefore behold the king whom ye have chosen, and whom ye have desired! and, behold, the LORD hath set a king over you.

 

09-12:17††† Is it not wheat harvest to day? I will call unto the LORD, and he shall send thunder and rain; that ye may perceive and see that your wickedness is great, which ye have done in the sight of the LORD, in asking you a king.

 

09-12:19††† And all the people said unto Samuel, Pray for thy servants unto the LORD thy God, that we die not: for we have added unto all our sins this evil, to ask us a king.

 

09-12:20††† And Samuel said unto the people, Fear not: ye have done all this wickedness: yet turn not aside from following the LORD, but serve the LORD with all your heart;

 

09-13:12††† Therefore said I, The Philistines will come down now upon me to Gilgal, and I have not made supplication unto the LORD: I forced myself therefore, and offered a burnt offering.

 

09-13:13††† And Samuel said to Saul, Thou hast done foolishly: thou hast not kept the commandment of the LORD thy God, which he commanded thee: for now would the LORD have established thy kingdom upon Israel for ever.

 

09-14:29††† Then said Jonathan, My father hath troubled the land: see, I pray you, how mine eyes have been enlightened, because I tasted a little of this honey.

 

09-14:33††† Then they told Saul, saying, Behold, the people sin against the LORD, in that they eat with the blood. And he said, Ye have transgressed: roll a great stone unto me this day.

 

09-15:3†††† Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.

 

09-15:11††† It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following me, and hath not performed my commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the LORD all night.

 

09-15:13††† And Samuel came to Saul: and Saul said unto him, Blessed be thou of the LORD: I have performed the commandment of the LORD.

 

09-15:15††† And Saul said, They have brought them from the Amalekites: for the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God; and the rest we have utterly destroyed.

 

09-15:20††† And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the LORD, and have gone the way which the LORD sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.

 

09-15:21††† But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God in Gilgal.

 

09-15:24††† And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.

 

09-15:30††† Then he said, I have sinned: yet honour me now, I pray thee, before the elders of my people, and before Israel, and turn again with me, that I may worship the LORD thy God.

 

09-16:1†††† And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.

 

09-16:7†††† But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.

 

09-16:18††† Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the LORD is with him.

 

09-17:25††† And the men of Israel said, Have ye seen this man that is come up? surely to defy Israel is he come up: and it shall be, that the man who killeth him, the king will enrich him with great riches, and will give him his daughter, and make his fatherís house free in Israel.

 

09-17:29††† And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?

 

09-17:39††† And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go; for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him.

 

09-18:8†††† And Saul was very wroth, and the saying displeased him; and he said, They have ascribed unto David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed but thousands: and what can he have more but the kingdom?

 

09-18:19††† But it came to pass at the time when Merab Saulís daughter should have been given to David, that she was given unto Adriel the Meholathite to wife.

 

09-19:4†††† And Jonathan spake good of David unto Saul his father, and said unto him, Let not the king sin against his servant, against David; because he hath not sinned against thee, and because his works have been to thee-ward very good:

 

09-20:1†††† And David fled from Naioth in Ramah, and came and said before Jonathan, What have I done? what is mine iniquity? and what is my sin before thy father, that he seeketh my life?

 

09-20:3†††† And David sware moreover, and said, Thy father certainly knoweth that I have found grace in thine eyes; and he saith, Let not Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved: but truly as the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, there is but a step between me and death.

 

09-20:7†††† If he say thus, It is well; thy servant shall have peace: but if he be very wroth, then be sure that evil is determined by him.

 

09-20:12††† And Jonathan said unto David, O LORD God of Israel, when I have sounded my father about to morrow any time, or the third day, and, behold, if there be good toward David, and I then send not unto thee, and shew it thee;

 

09-20:23††† And as touching the matter which thou and I have spoken of, behold, the LORD be between thee and me for ever.

 

09-20:29††† And he said, Let me go, I pray thee; for our family hath a sacrifice in the city; and my brother, he hath commanded me to be there: and now, if I have found favour in thine eyes, let me get away, I pray thee, and see my brethren. Therefore he cometh not unto the kingís table.

 

09-20:42††† And Jonathan said to David, Go in peace, forasmuch as we have sworn both of us in the name of the LORD, saying, The LORD be between me and thee, and between my seed and thy seed for ever. And he arose and departed: and Jonathan went into the city.

 

09-21:2†††† And David said unto Ahimelech the priest, The king hath commanded me a business, and hath said unto me, Let no man know any thing of the business whereabout I send thee, and what I have commanded thee: and I have appointed my servants to such and such a place.

 

09-21:4†††† And the priest answered David, and said, There is no common bread under mine hand, but there is hallowed bread; if the young men have kept themselves at least from women.

 

09-21:5†††† And David answered the priest, and said unto him, Of a truth women have been kept from us about these three days, since I came out, and the vessels of the young men are holy, and the bread is in a manner common, yea, though it were sanctified this day in the vessel.

 

09-21:8†††† And David said unto Ahimelech, And is there not here under thine hand spear or sword? for I have neither brought my sword nor my weapons with me, because the kingís business required haste.

 

09-21:14††† Then said Achish unto his servants, Lo, ye see the man is mad: wherefore then have ye brought him to me?

 

09-21:15††† Have I need of mad men, that ye have brought this fellow to play the mad man in my presence? shall this fellow come into my house?

 

09-22:8†††† That all of you have conspired against me, and there is none that sheweth me that my son hath made a league with the son of Jesse, and there is none of you that is sorry for me, or sheweth unto me that my son hath stirred up my servant against me, to lie in wait, as at this day?

 

09-22:13††† And Saul said unto him, Why have ye conspired against me, thou and the son of Jesse, in that thou hast given him bread, and a sword, and hast enquired of God for him, that he should rise against me, to lie in wait, as at this day?

 

09-22:22††† And David said unto Abiathar, I knew it that day, when Doeg the Edomite was there, that he would surely tell Saul: I have occasioned the death of all the persons of thy fatherís house.

 

09-23:21††† And Saul said, Blessed be ye of the LORD; for ye have compassion on me.

 

09-23:27††† But there came a messenger unto Saul, saying, Haste thee, and come; for the Philistines have invaded the land.

 

09-24:10††† Behold, this day thine eyes have seen how that the LORD had delivered thee to day into mine hand in the cave: and some bade me kill thee: but mine eye spared thee; and I said, I will not put forth mine hand against my lord; for he is the LORDíS anointed.

 

09-24:11††† Moreover, my father, see, yea, see the skirt of thy robe in my hand: for in that I cut off the skirt of thy robe, and killed thee not, know thou and see that there is neither evil nor transgression in mine hand, and I have not sinned against thee; yet thou huntest my soul to take it.

 

09-24:17††† And he said to David, Thou art more righteous than I: for thou hast rewarded me good, whereas I have rewarded thee evil.

 

09-25:7†††† And now I have heard that thou hast shearers: now thy shepherds which were with us, we hurt them not, neither was there ought missing unto them, all the while they were in Carmel.

 

09-25:11††† Shall I then take my bread, and my water, and my flesh that I have killed for my shearers, and give it unto men, whom I know not whence they be?

 

09-25:21††† Now David had said, Surely in vain have I kept all that this fellow hath in the wilderness, so that nothing was missed of all that pertained unto him: and he hath requited me evil for good.

 

09-25:30††† And it shall come to pass, when the LORD shall have done to my lord according to all the good that he hath spoken concerning thee, and shall have appointed thee ruler over Israel;

 

09-25:31††† That this shall be no grief unto thee, nor offence of heart unto my lord, either that thou hast shed blood causeless, or that my lord hath avenged himself: but when the LORD shall have dealt well with my lord, then remember thine handmaid.

 

09-25:35††† So David received of her hand that which she had brought him, and said unto her, Go up in peace to thine house; see, I have hearkened to thy voice, and have accepted thy person.

 

09-26:16††† This thing is not good that thou hast done. As the LORD liveth, ye are worthy to die, because ye have not kept your master, the LORDíS anointed. And now see where the kingís spear is, and the cruse of water that was at his bolster.

 

09-26:18††† And he said, Wherefore doth my lord thus pursue after his servant? for what have I done? or what evil is in mine hand?

 

09-26:19††† Now therefore, I pray thee, let my lord the king hear the words of his servant. If the LORD have stirred thee up against me, let him accept an offering: but if they be the children of men, cursed be they before the LORD; for they have driven me out this day from abiding in the inheritance of the LORD, saying, Go, serve other gods.

 

09-26:21††† Then said Saul, I have sinned: return, my son David: for I will no more do thee harm, because my soul was precious in thine eyes this day: behold, I have played the fool, and have erred exceedingly.

 

09-27:5†††† And David said unto Achish, If I have now found grace in thine eyes, let them give me a place in some town in the country, that I may dwell there: for why should thy servant dwell in the royal city with thee?

 

09-27:10††† And Achish said, Whither have ye made a road to day? And David said, Against the south of Judah, and against the south of the Jerahmeelites, and against the south of the Kenites.

 

09-28:9†††† And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath cut off those that have familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land: wherefore then layest thou a snare for my life, to cause me to die?

 

09-28:15††† And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up? And Saul answered, I am sore distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and God is departed from me, and answereth me no more, neither by prophets, nor by dreams: therefore I have called thee, that thou mayest make known unto me what I shall do.

 

09-28:21††† And the woman came unto Saul, and saw that he was sore troubled, and said unto him, Behold, thine handmaid hath obeyed thy voice, and I have put my life in my hand, and have hearkened unto thy words which thou spakest unto me.

 

09-28:22††† Now therefore, I pray thee, hearken thou also unto the voice of thine handmaid, and let me set a morsel of bread before thee; and eat, that thou mayest have strength, when thou goest on thy way.

 

09-29:3†††† Then said the princes of the Philistines, What do these Hebrews here? And Achish said unto the princes of the Philistines, Is not this David, the servant of Saul the king of Israel, which hath been with me these days, or these years, and I have found no fault in him since he fell unto me unto this day?

 

09-29:6†††† Then Achish called David, and said unto him, Surely, as the LORD liveth, thou hast been upright, and thy going out and thy coming in with me in the host is good in my sight: for I have not found evil in thee since the day of thy coming unto me unto this day: nevertheless the lords favour thee not.

 

09-29:8†††† And David said unto Achish, But what have I done? and what hast thou found in thy servant so long as I have been with thee unto this day, that I may not go fight against the enemies of my lord the king?

 

09-29:9†††† And Achish answered and said to David, I know that thou art good in my sight, as an angel of God: notwithstanding the princes of the Philistines have said, He shall not go up with us to the battle.

 

09-29:10††† Wherefore now rise up early in the morning with thy masterís servants that are come with thee: and as soon as ye be up early in the morning, and have light, depart.

 

09-30:22††† Then answered all the wicked men and men of Belial, of those that went with David, and said, Because they went not with us, we will not give them ought of the spoil that we have recovered, save to every man his wife and his children, that they may lead them away, and depart.

 

10-2 SAMUEL

10-1:10†††† So I stood upon him, and slew him, because I was sure that he could not live after that he was fallen: and I took the crown that was upon his head, and the bracelet that was on his arm, and have brought them hither unto my lord.

 

10-1:16†††† And David said unto him, Thy blood be upon thy head; for thy mouth hath testified against thee, saying, I have slain the LORDíS anointed.

 

10-2:5††††† And David sent messengers unto the men of Jabeshgilead, and said unto them, Blessed be ye of the LORD, that ye have shewed this kindness unto your lord, even unto Saul, and have buried him.

 

10-2:6††††† And now the LORD shew kindness and truth unto you: and I also will requite you this kindness, because ye have done this thing.

 

10-2:7††††† Therefore now let your hands be strengthened, and be ye valiant: for your master Saul is dead, and also the house of Judah have anointed me king over them.

 

10-3:8††††† Then was Abner very wroth for the words of Ishbosheth, and said, Am I a dogís head, which against Judah do shew kindness this day unto the house of Saul thy father, to his brethren, and to his friends, and have not delivered thee into the hand of David, that thou chargest me to day with a fault concerning this woman?

 

10-4:6††††† And they came thither into the midst of the house, as though they would have fetched wheat; and they smote him under the fifth rib: and Rechab and Baanah his brother escaped.

 

10-4:10†††† When one told me, saying, Behold, Saul is dead, thinking to have brought good tidings, I took hold of him, and slew him in Ziklag, who thought that I would have given him a reward for his tidings:

 

10-4:11†††† How much more, when wicked men have slain a righteous person in his own house upon his bed? shall I not therefore now require his blood of your hand, and take you away from the earth?

 

10-7:6††††† Whereas I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt, even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle.

 

10-7:7††††† In all the places wherein I have walked with all the children of Israel spake I a word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people Israel, saying, Why build ye not me an house of cedar?

 

10-7:9††††† And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth.

 

10-7:11†††† And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house.

 

10-7:22†††† Wherefore thou art great, O LORD God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

 

10-9:9††††† Then the king called to Ziba, Saulís servant, and said unto him, I have given unto thy masterís son all that pertained to Saul and to all his house.

 

10-9:10†††† Thou therefore, and thy sons, and thy servants, shall till the land for him, and thou shalt bring in the fruits, that thy masterís son may have food to eat: but Mephibosheth thy masterís son shall eat bread alway at my table. Now Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants.

 

10-12:8†††† And I gave thee thy masterís house, and thy masterís wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things.

 

10-12:13††† And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.

 

10-12:27††† And Joab sent messengers to David, and said, I have fought against Rabbah, and have taken the city of waters.

 

10-13:9†††† And she took a pan, and poured them out before him; but he refused to eat. And Amnon said, Have out all men from me. And they went out every man from him.

 

10-13:28††† Now Absalom had commanded his servants, saying, Mark ye now when Amnonís heart is merry with wine, and when I say unto you, Smite Amnon; then kill him, fear not: have not I commanded you? be courageous, and be valiant.

 

10-13:32††† And Jonadab, the son of Shimeah Davidís brother, answered and said, Let not my lord suppose that they have slain all the young men the kingís sons; for Amnon only is dead: for by the appointment of Absalom this hath been determined from the day that he forced his sister Tamar.

 

10-14:15††† Now therefore that I am come to speak of this thing unto my lord the king, it is because the people have made me afraid: and thy handmaid said, I will now speak unto the king; it may be that the king will perform the request of his handmaid.

 

10-14:21††† And the king said unto Joab, Behold now, I have done this thing: go therefore, bring the young man Absalom again.

 

10-14:22††† And Joab fell to the ground on his face, and bowed himself, and thanked the king: and Joab said, To day thy servant knoweth that I have found grace in thy sight, my lord, O king, in that the king hath fulfilled the request of his servant.

 

10-14:29††† Therefore Absalom sent for Joab, to have sent him to the king; but he would not come to him: and when he sent again the second time, he would not come.

 

10-14:31††† Then Joab arose, and came to Absalom unto his house, and said unto him, Wherefore have thy servants set my field on fire?

 

10-14:32††† And Absalom answered Joab, Behold, I sent unto thee, saying, Come hither, that I may send thee to the king, to say, Wherefore am I come from Geshur? it had been good for me to have been there still: now therefore let me see the kingís face; and if there be any iniquity in me, let him kill me.

 

10-15:7†††† And it came to pass after forty years, that Absalom said unto the king, I pray thee, let me go and pay my vow, which I have vowed unto the LORD, in Hebron.

 

10-15:26††† But if he thus say, I have no delight in thee; behold, here am I, let him do to me as seemeth good unto him.

 

10-15:34††† But if thou return to the city, and say unto Absalom, I will be thy servant, O king; as I have been thy fatherís servant hitherto, so will I now also be thy servant: then mayest thou for me defeat the counsel of Ahithophel.

 

10-15:36††† Behold, they have there with them their two sons, Ahimaaz Zadokís son, and Jonathan Abiatharís son; and by them ye shall send unto me every thing that ye can hear.

 

10-16:10††† And the king said, What have I to do with you, ye sons of Zeruiah? so let him curse, because the LORD hath said unto him, Curse David. Who shall then say, Wherefore hast thou done so?

 

10-16:19††† And again, whom should I serve? should I not serve in the presence of his son? as I have served in thy fatherís presence, so will I be in thy presence.

 

10-17:15††† Then said Hushai unto Zadok and to Abiathar the priests, Thus and thus did Ahithophel counsel Absalom and the elders of Israel; and thus and thus have I counselled.

 

10-18:11††† And Joab said unto the man that told him, And, behold, thou sawest him, and why didst thou not smite him there to the ground? And I would have given thee ten shekels of silver, and a girdle.

 

10-18:13††† Otherwise I should have wrought falsehood against mine own life: for there is no matter hid from the king, and thou thyself wouldest have set thyself against me.

 

10-18:18††† Now Absalom in his lifetime had taken and reared up for himself a pillar, which is in the kingís dale: for he said, I have no son to keep my name in remembrance: and he called the pillar after his own name: and it is called unto this day, Absalomís place.

 

10-19:5†††† And Joab came into the house to the king, and said, Thou hast shamed this day the faces of all thy servants, which this day have saved thy life, and the lives of thy sons and of thy daughters, and the lives of thy wives, and the lives of thy concubines;

 

10-19:20††† For thy servant doth know that I have sinned: therefore, behold, I am come the first this day of all the house of Joseph to go down to meet my lord the king.

 

10-19:22††† And David said, What have I to do with you, ye sons of Zeruiah, that ye should this day be adversaries unto me? shall there any man be put to death this day in Israel? for do not I know that I am this day king over Israel?

 

10-19:28††† For all of my fatherís house were but dead men before my lord the king: yet didst thou set thy servant among them that did eat at thine own table. What right therefore have I yet to cry any more unto the king?

 

10-19:29††† And the king said unto him, Why speakest thou any more of thy matters? I have said, Thou and Ziba divide the land.

 

10-19:34††† And Barzillai said unto the king, How long have I to live, that I should go up with the king unto Jerusalem?

 

10-19:41††† And, behold, all the men of Israel came to the king, and said unto the king, Why have our brethren the men of Judah stolen thee away, and have brought the king, and his household, and all Davidís men with him, over Jordan?

 

10-19:42††† And all the men of Judah answered the men of Israel, Because the king is near of kin to us: wherefore then be ye angry for this matter? have we eaten at all of the kingís cost? or hath he given us any gift?

 

10-19:43††† And the men of Israel answered the men of Judah, and said, We have ten parts in the king, and we have also more right in David than ye: why then did ye despise us, that our advice should not be first had in bringing back our king? And the words of the men of Judah were fiercer than the words of the men of Israel.

 

10-20:1†††† And there happened to be there a man of Belial, whose name was Sheba, the son of Bichri, a Benjamite: and he blew a trumpet, and said, We have no part in David, neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: every man to his tents, O Israel.

 

10-21:4†††† And the Gibeonites said unto him, We will have no silver nor gold of Saul, nor of his house; neither for us shalt thou kill any man in Israel. And he said, What ye shall say, that will I do for you.

 

10-21:16††† And Ishbibenob, which was of the sons of the giant, the weight of whose spear weighed three hundred shekels of brass in weight, he being girded with a new sword, thought to have slain David.

 

10-22:22††† For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.

 

10-22:24††† I was also upright before him, and have kept myself from mine iniquity.

 

10-22:30††† For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.

 

10-22:38††† I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them.

 

10-22:39††† And I have consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not arise: yea, they are fallen under my feet.

 

10-24:10††† And Davidís heart smote him after that he had numbered the people. And David said unto the LORD, I have sinned greatly in that I have done: and now, I beseech thee, O LORD, take away the iniquity of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly.

 

10-24:17††† And David spake unto the LORD when he saw the angel that smote the people, and said, Lo, I have sinned, and I have done wickedly: but these sheep, what have they done? let thine hand, I pray thee, be against me, and against my fatherís house.

 

11-1 KINGS

11-1:35†††† Then ye shall come up after him, that he may come and sit upon my throne; for he shall be king in my stead: and I have appointed him to be ruler over Israel and over Judah.

 

11-1:44†††† And the king hath sent with him Zadok the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and the Cherethites, and the Pelethites, and they have caused him to ride upon the kingís mule:

 

11-1:45†††† And Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet have anointed him king in Gihon: and they are come up from thence rejoicing, so that the city rang again. This is the noise that ye have heard.

 

11-2:14†††† He said moreover, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And she said, Say on.

 

11-2:23†††† Then king Solomon sware by the LORD, saying, God do so to me, and more also, if Adonijah have not spoken this word against his own life.

 

11-2:42†††† And the king sent and called for Shimei, and said unto him, Did I not make thee to swear by the LORD, and protested unto thee, saying, Know for a certain, on the day thou goest out, and walkest abroad any whither, that thou shalt surely die? and thou saidst unto me, The word that I have heard is good.

 

11-2:43†††† Why then hast thou not kept the oath of the LORD, and the commandment that I have charged thee with?

 

11-3:12†††† Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.

 

11-3:13†††† And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.

 

11-5:8††††† And Hiram sent to Solomon, saying, I have considered the things which thou sentest to me for: and I will do all thy desire concerning timber of cedar, and concerning timber of fir.

 

11-8:13†††† I have surely built thee an house to dwell in, a settled place for thee to abide in for ever.

 

11-8:20†††† And the LORD hath performed his word that he spake, and I am risen up in the room of David my father, and sit on the throne of Israel, as the LORD promised, and have built an house for the name of the LORD God of Israel.

 

11-8:21†††† And I have set there a place for the ark, wherein is the covenant of the LORD, which he made with our fathers, when he brought them out of the land of Egypt.

 

11-8:27†††† But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?

 

11-8:28†††† Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servant prayeth before thee to day:

 

11-8:33†††† When thy people Israel be smitten down before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee, and shall turn again to thee, and confess thy name, and pray, and make supplication unto thee in this house:

 

11-8:35†††† When heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou afflictest them:

 

11-8:43†††† Hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for: that all people of the earth may know thy name, to fear thee, as do thy people Israel; and that they may know that this house, which I have builded, is called by thy name.

 

11-8:44†††† If thy people go out to battle against their enemy, whithersoever thou shalt send them, and shall pray unto the LORD toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house that I have built for thy name:

 

11-8:47†††† Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication unto thee in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness;

 

11-8:48†††† And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name:

 

11-8:50†††† And forgive thy people that have sinned against thee, and all their transgressions wherein they have transgressed against thee, and give them compassion before them who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them:

 

11-8:59†††† And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel at all times, as the matter shall require:

 

11-9:3††††† And the LORD said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, that thou hast made before me: I have hallowed this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.

 

11-9:4††††† And if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments:

 

11-9:6††††† But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them:

 

11-9:7††††† Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people:

 

11-9:9††††† And they shall answer, Because they forsook the LORD their God, who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.

 

11-11:11††† Wherefore the LORD said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.

 

11-11:13††† Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; but will give one tribe to thy son for David my servantís sake, and for Jerusalemís sake which I have chosen.

 

11-11:32††† (But he shall have one tribe for my servant Davidís sake, and for Jerusalemís sake, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel:)

 

11-11:33††† Because that they have forsaken me, and have worshipped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the god of the children of Ammon, and have not walked in my ways, to do that which is right in mine eyes, and to keep my statutes and my judgments, as did David his father.

 

11-11:36††† And unto his son will I give one tribe, that David my servant may have a light alway before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there.

 

11-12:9†††† And he said unto them, What counsel give ye that we may answer this people, who have spoken to me, saying, Make the yoke which thy father did put upon us lighter?

 

11-12:16††† So when all Israel saw that the king hearkened not unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we in David? neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: to your tents, O Israel: now see to thine own house, David. So Israel departed unto their tents.

 

11-14:15††† For the LORD shall smite Israel, as a reed is shaken in the water, and he shall root up Israel out of this good land, which he gave to their fathers, and shall scatter them beyond the river, because they have made their groves, provoking the LORD to anger.

 

11-15:19††† There is a league between me and thee, and between my father and thy father: behold, I have sent unto thee a present of silver and gold; come and break thy league with Baasha king of Israel, that he may depart from me.

 

11-17:4†††† And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.

 

11-17:9†††† Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.

 

11-17:12††† And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.

 

11-17:18††† And she said unto Elijah, What have I to do with thee, O thou man of God? art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my son?

 

11-18:9†††† And he said, What have I sinned, that thou wouldest deliver thy servant into the hand of Ahab, to slay me?

 

11-18:18††† And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy fatherís house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.

 

11-18:36††† And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.

 

11-19:10††† And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.

 

11-19:14††† And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.

 

11-19:18††† Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.

 

11-19:20††† And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow thee. And he said unto him, Go back again: for what have I done to thee?

 

11-20:4†††† And the king of Israel answered and said, My lord, O king, according to thy saying, I am thine, and all that I have.

 

11-20:5†††† And the messengers came again, and said, Thus speaketh Benhadad, saying, Although I have sent unto thee, saying, Thou shalt deliver me thy silver, and thy gold, and thy wives, and thy children;

 

11-20:28††† And there came a man of God, and spake unto the king of Israel, and said, Thus saith the LORD, Because the Syrians have said, The LORD is God of the hills, but he is not God of the valleys, therefore will I deliver all this great multitude into thine hand, and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

 

11-20:31††† And his servants said unto him, Behold now, we have heard that the kings of the house of Israel are merciful kings: let us, I pray thee, put sackcloth on our loins, and ropes upon our heads, and go out to the king of Israel: peradventure he will save thy life.

 

11-21:2†††† And Ahab spake unto Naboth, saying, Give me thy vineyard, that I may have it for a garden of herbs, because it is near unto my house: and I will give thee for it a better vineyard than it; or, if it seem good to thee, I will give thee the worth of it in money.

 

11-21:20††† And Ahab said to Elijah, hast thou found me, O mine enemy? And he answered, I have found thee; because thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the LORD.

 

11-22:11††† And Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah made him horns of iron: and he said, Thus saith the LORD, With these shalt thou push the Syrians, until thou have consumed them.

 

11-22:17††† And he said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master: let them return every man to his house in peace.

 

12-2 KINGS

12-2:21†††† And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land.

 

12-3:13†††† And Elisha said unto the king of Israel, What have I to do with thee? get thee to the prophets of thy father, and to the prophets of thy mother. And the king of Israel said unto him, Nay: for the LORD hath called these three kings together, to deliver them into the hand of Moab.

 

12-3:23†††† And they said, This is blood: the kings are surely slain, and they have smitten one another: now therefore, Moab, to the spoil.

 

12-3:27†††† Then he took his eldest son that should have reigned in his stead, and offered him for a burnt offering upon the wall. And there was great indignation against Israel: and they departed from him, and returned to their own land.

 

12-5:6††††† And he brought the letter to the king of Israel, saying, Now when this letter is come unto thee, behold, I have therewith sent Naaman my servant to thee, that thou mayest recover him of his leprosy.

 

12-5:13†††† And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean?

 

12-7:12†††† And the king arose in the night, and said unto his servants, I will now shew you what the Syrians have done to us. They know that we be hungry; therefore are they gone out of the camp to hide themselves in the field, saying, When they come out of the city, we shall catch them alive, and get into the city.

 

12-7:17†††† And the king appointed the lord on whose hand he leaned to have the charge of the gate: and the people trode upon him in the gate, and he died, as the man of God had said, who spake when the king came down to him.

 

12-9:3††††† Then take the box of oil, and pour it on his head, and say, Thus saith the LORD, I have anointed thee king over Israel. Then open the door, and flee, and tarry not.

 

12-9:5††††† And when he came, behold, the captains of the host were sitting; and he said, I have an errand to thee, O captain. And Jehu said, Unto which of all us? And he said, To thee, O captain.

 

12-9:6††††† And he arose, and went into the house; and he poured the oil on his head, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I have anointed thee king over the people of the LORD, even over Israel.

 

12-9:12†††† And they said, It is false; tell us now. And he said, Thus and thus spake he to me, saying, Thus saith the LORD, I have anointed thee king over Israel.

 

12-9:26†††† Surely I have seen yesterday the blood of Naboth, and the blood of his sons, saith the LORD; and I will requite thee in this plat, saith the LORD. Now therefore take and cast him into the plat of ground, according to the word of the LORD.

 

12-10:8†††† And there came a messenger, and told him, saying, They have brought the heads of the kingís sons. And he said, Lay ye them in two heaps at the entering in of the gate until the morning.

 

12-10:19††† Now therefore call unto me all the prophets of Baal, all his servants, and all his priests; let none be wanting: for I have a great sacrifice to do to Baal; whosoever shall be wanting, he shall not live. But Jehu did it in subtilty, to the intent that he might destroy the worshippers of Baal.

 

12-10:24††† And when they went in to offer sacrifices and burnt offerings, Jehu appointed fourscore men without, and said, If any of the men whom I have brought into your hands escape, he that letteth him go, his life shall be for the life of him.

 

12-11:15††† But Jehoiada the priest commanded the captains of the hundreds, the officers of the host, and said unto them, Have her forth without the ranges: and him that followeth her kill with the sword. For the priest had said, Let her not be slain in the house of the LORD.

 

12-13:17††† And he said, Open the window eastward. And he opened it. Then Elisha said, Shoot. And he shot. And he said, The arrow of the LORDíS deliverance, and the arrow of deliverance from Syria: for thou shalt smite the Syrians in Aphek, till thou have consumed them.

 

12-13:19††† And the man of God was wroth with him, and said, Thou shouldest have smitten five or six times; then hadst thou smitten Syria till thou hadst consumed it: whereas now thou shalt smite Syria but thrice.

 

12-17:38††† And the covenant that I have made with you ye shall not forget; neither shall ye fear other gods.

 

12-18:14††† And Hezekiah king of Judah sent to the king of Assyria to Lachish, saying, I have offended; return from me: that which thou puttest on me will I bear. And the king of Assyria appointed unto Hezekiah king of Judah three hundred talents of silver and thirty talents of gold.

 

12-18:20††† Thou sayest, (but they are but vain words), I have counsel and strength for the war. Now on whom dost thou trust, that thou rebellest against me?

 

12-18:34††† Where are the gods of Hamath, and of Arpad? where are the gods of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivah? have they delivered Samaria out of mine hand?

 

12-18:35††† Who are they among all the gods of the countries, that have delivered their country out of mine hand, that the LORD should deliver Jerusalem out of mine hand?

 

12-19:6†††† And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say to your master, Thus saith the LORD, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.

 

12-19:11††† Behold, thou hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands, by destroying them utterly: and shalt thou be delivered?

 

12-19:12††† Have the gods of the nations delivered them which my fathers have destroyed; as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the children of Eden which were in Thelasar?

 

12-19:17††† Of a truth, LORD, the kings of Assyria have destroyed the nations and their lands,

 

12-19:18††† And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of menís hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.

 

12-19:20††† Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, That which thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria I have heard.

 

12-19:24††† I have digged and drunk strange waters, and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of besieged places.

 

12-19:25††† Hast thou not heard long ago how I have done it, and of ancient times that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste fenced cities into ruinous heaps.

 

12-20:3†††† I beseech thee, O LORD, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.

 

12-20:5†††† Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD.

 

12-20:9†††† And Isaiah said, This sign shalt thou have of the LORD, that the LORD will do the thing that he hath spoken: shall the shadow go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees?

 

12-20:15††† And he said, What have they seen in thine house? And Hezekiah answered, All the things that are in mine house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shewed them.

 

12-20:17††† Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store unto this day, shall be carried into Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the LORD.

 

12-21:7†††† And he set a graven image of the grove that he had made in the house, of which the LORD said to David, and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:

 

12-21:8†††† Neither will I make the feet of Israel move any more out of the land which I gave their fathers; only if they will observe to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the law that my servant Moses commanded them.

 

12-21:15††† Because they have done that which was evil in my sight, and have provoked me to anger, since the day their fathers came forth out of Egypt, even unto this day.

 

12-22:4†††† Go up to Hilkiah the high priest, that he may sum the silver which is brought into the house of the LORD, which the keepers of the door have gathered of the people:

 

12-22:5†††† And let them deliver it into the hand of the doers of the work, that have the oversight of the house of the LORD: and let them give it to the doers of the work which is in the house of the LORD, to repair the breaches of the house,

 

12-22:8†††† And Hilkiah the high priest said unto Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the LORD. And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it.

 

12-22:9†††† And Shaphan the scribe came to the king, and brought the king word again, and said, Thy servants have gathered the money that was found in the house, and have delivered it into the hand of them that do the work, that have the oversight of the house of the LORD.

 

12-22:13††† Go ye, enquire of the LORD for me, and for the people, and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found: for great is the wrath of the LORD that is kindled against us, because our fathers have not hearkened unto the words of this book, to do according unto all that which is written concerning us.

 

12-22:17††† Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and shall not be quenched.

 

12-22:19††† Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before the LORD, when thou heardest what I spake against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and hast rent thy clothes, and wept before me; I also have heard thee, saith the LORD.

 

12-23:27††† And the LORD said, I will remove Judah also out of my sight, as I have removed Israel, and will cast off this city Jerusalem which I have chosen, and the house of which I said, My name shall be there.

 

13-1 CHRONICLES

13-11:19††† And said, My God forbid it me, that I should do this thing: shall I drink the blood of these men that have put their lives in jeopardy? for with the jeopardy of their lives they brought it. Therefore he would not drink it. These things did these three mightiest.

 

13-15:12††† And said unto them, Ye are the chief of the fathers of the Levites: sanctify yourselves, both ye and your brethren, that ye may bring up the ark of the LORD God of Israel unto the place that I have prepared for it.

 

13-17:5†††† For I have not dwelt in an house since the day that I brought up Israel unto this day; but have gone from tent to tent, and from one tabernacle to another.

 

13-17:6†††† Wheresoever I have walked with all Israel, spake I a word to any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people, saying, Why have ye not built me an house of cedars?

 

13-17:8†††† And I have been with thee whithersoever thou hast walked, and have cut off all thine enemies from before thee, and have made thee a name like the name of the great men that are in the earth.

 

13-17:20††† O LORD, there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

 

13-21:8†††† And David said unto God, I have sinned greatly, because I have done this thing: but now, I beseech thee, do away the iniquity of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly.

 

13-21:17††† And David said unto God, Is it not I that commanded the people to be numbered? even I it is that have sinned and done evil indeed; but as for these sheep, what have they done? let thine hand, I pray thee, O LORD my God, be on me, and on my fatherís house; but not on thy people, that they should be plagued.

 

13-22:14††† Now, behold, in my trouble I have prepared for the house of the LORD an hundred thousand talents of gold, and a thousand thousand talents of silver; and of brass and iron without weight; for it is in abundance: timber also and stone have I prepared; and thou mayest add thereto.

 

13-28:6†††† And he said unto me, Solomon thy son, he shall build my house and my courts: for I have chosen him to be my son, and I will be his father.

 

13-29:2†††† Now I have prepared with all my might for the house of my God the gold for things to be made of gold, and the silver for things of silver, and the brass for things of brass, the iron for things of iron, and wood for things of wood; onyx stones, and stones to be set, glistering stones, and of divers colours, and all manner of precious stones, and marble stones in abundance.

 

13-29:3†††† Moreover, because I have set my affection to the house of my God, I have of mine own proper good, of gold and silver, which I have given to the house of my God, over and above all that I have prepared for the holy house,

 

13-29:14††† But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.

 

13-29:16††† O LORD our God, all this store that we have prepared to build thee an house for thine holy name cometh of thine hand, and is all thine own.

 

13-29:17††† I know also, my God, that thou triest the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of mine heart I have willingly offered all these things: and now have I seen with joy thy people, which are present here, to offer willingly unto thee.

 

13-29:19††† And give unto Solomon my son a perfect heart, to keep thy commandments, thy testimonies, and thy statutes, and to do all these things, and to build the palace, for the which I have made provision.

 

14-2 CHRONICLES

14-1:11†††† And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king:

 

14-1:12†††† Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.

 

14-2:13†††† And now I have sent a cunning man, endued with understanding, of Huram my fatherís,

 

14-6:2††††† But I have built an house of habitation for thee, and a place for thy dwelling for ever.

 

14-6:6††††† But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel.

 

14-6:10†††† The LORD therefore hath performed his word that he hath spoken: for I am risen up in the room of David my father, and am set on the throne of Israel, as the LORD promised, and have built the house for the name of the LORD God of Israel.

 

14-6:11†††† And in it have I put the ark, wherein is the covenant of the LORD, that he made with the children of Israel.

 

14-6:18†††† But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!

 

14-6:19†††† Have respect therefore to the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and the prayer which thy servant prayeth before thee:

 

14-6:24†††† And if thy people Israel be put to the worse before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee; and shall return and confess thy name, and pray and make supplication before thee in this house;

 

14-6:26†††† When the heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; yet if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou dost afflict them;

 

14-6:33†††† Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for; that all people of the earth may know thy name, and fear thee, as doth thy people Israel, and may know that this house which I have built is called by thy name.

 

14-6:34†††† If thy people go out to war against their enemies by the way that thou shalt send them, and they pray unto thee toward this city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name;

 

14-6:37†††† Yet if they bethink themselves in the land whither they are carried captive, and turn and pray unto thee in the land of their captivity, saying, We have sinned, we have done amiss, and have dealt wickedly;

 

14-6:38†††† If they return to thee with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their captivity, whither they have carried them captives, and pray toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, and toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house which I have built for thy name:

 

14-6:39†††† Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, their prayer and their supplications, and maintain their cause, and forgive thy people which have sinned against thee.

 

14-7:12†††† And the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice.

 

14-7:16†††† For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.

 

14-7:17†††† And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and shalt observe my statutes and my judgments;

 

14-7:18†††† Then will I stablish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man to be ruler in Israel.

 

14-7:19†††† But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them;

 

14-7:20†††† Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.

 

14-10:9†††† And he said unto them, What advice give ye that we may return answer to this people, which have spoken to me, saying, Ease somewhat the yoke that thy father did put upon us?

 

14-10:16††† And when all Israel saw that the king would not hearken unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we in David? and we have none inheritance in the son of Jesse: every man to your tents, O Israel: and now, David, see to thine own house. So all Israel went to their tents.

 

14-12:5†††† Then came Shemaiah the prophet to Rehoboam, and to the princes of Judah, that were gathered together to Jerusalem because of Shishak, and said unto them, Thus saith the LORD, Ye have forsaken me, and therefore have I also left you in the hand of Shishak.

 

14-12:7†††† And when the LORD saw that they humbled themselves, the word of the LORD came to Shemaiah, saying, They have humbled themselves; therefore I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some deliverance; and my wrath shall not be poured out upon Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak.

 

14-13:7†††† And there are gathered unto him vain men, the children of Belial, and have strengthened themselves against Rehoboam the son of Solomon, when Rehoboam was young and tenderhearted, and could not withstand them.

 

14-13:9†††† Have ye not cast out the priests of the LORD, the sons of Aaron, and the Levites, and have made you priests after the manner of the nations of other lands? so that whosoever cometh to consecrate himself with a young bullock and seven rams, the same may be a priest of them that are no gods.

 

14-13:10††† But as for us, the LORD is our God, and we have not forsaken him; and the priests, which minister unto the LORD, are the sons of Aaron, and the Levites wait upon their business:

 

14-13:11††† And they burn unto the LORD every morning and every evening burnt sacrifices and sweet incense: the shewbread also set they in order upon the pure table; and the candlestick of gold with the lamps thereof, to burn every evening: for we keep the charge of the LORD our God; but ye have forsaken him.

 

14-14:7†††† Therefore he said unto Judah, Let us build these cities, and make about them walls, and towers, gates, and bars, while the land is yet before us; because we have sought the LORD our God, we have sought him, and he hath given us rest on every side. So they built and prospered.

 

14-14:11††† And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said, LORD, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O LORD, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee.

 

14-16:3†††† There is a league between me and thee, as there was between my father and thy father: behold, I have sent thee silver and gold; go, break thy league with Baasha king of Israel, that he may depart from me.

 

14-16:9†††† For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

 

14-18:16††† Then he said, I did see all Israel scattered upon the mountains, as sheep that have no shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master; let them return therefore every man to his house in peace.

 

14-20:8†††† And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying,

 

14-20:12††† O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.

 

14-21:15††† And thou shalt have great sickness by disease of thy bowels, until thy bowels fall out by reason of the sickness day by day.

 

14-23:14††† Then Jehoiada the priest brought out the captains of hundreds that were set over the host, and said unto them, Have her forth of the ranges: and whoso followeth her, let him be slain with the sword. For the priest said, Slay her not in the house of the LORD.

 

14-24:20††† And the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest, which stood above the people, and said unto them, Thus saith God, Why transgress ye the commandments of the LORD, that ye cannot prosper? because ye have forsaken the LORD, he hath also forsaken you.

 

14-25:9†††† And Amaziah said to the man of God, But what shall we do for the hundred talents which I have given to the army of Israel? And the man of God answered, The LORD is able to give thee much more than this.

 

14-28:9†††† But a prophet of the LORD was there, whose name was Oded: and he went out before the host that came to Samaria, and said unto them, Behold, because the LORD God of your fathers was wroth with Judah, he hath delivered them into your hand, and ye have slain them in a rage that reacheth up unto heaven.

 

14-28:11††† Now hear me therefore, and deliver the captives again, which ye have taken captive of your brethren: for the fierce wrath of the LORD is upon you.

 

14-28:13††† And said unto them, Ye shall not bring in the captives hither: for whereas we have offended against the LORD already, ye intend to add more to our sins and to our trespass: for our trespass is great, and there is fierce wrath against Israel.

 

14-29:6†††† For our fathers have trespassed, and done that which was evil in the eyes of the LORD our God, and have forsaken him, and have turned away their faces from the habitation of the LORD, and turned their backs.

 

14-29:7†††† Also they have shut up the doors of the porch, and put out the lamps, and have not burned incense nor offered burnt offerings in the holy place unto the God of Israel.

 

14-29:9†††† For, lo, our fathers have fallen by the sword, and our sons and our daughters and our wives are in captivity for this.

 

14-29:18††† Then they went in to Hezekiah the king, and said, We have cleansed all the house of the LORD, and the altar of burnt offering, with all the vessels thereof, and the shewbread table, with all the vessels thereof.

 

14-29:19††† Moreover all the vessels, which king Ahaz in his reign did cast away in his transgression, have we prepared and sanctified, and, behold, they are before the altar of the LORD.

 

14-29:31††† Then Hezekiah answered and said, Now ye have consecrated yourselves unto the LORD, come near and bring sacrifices and thank offerings into the house of the LORD. And the congregation brought in sacrifices and thank offerings; and as many as were of a free heart burnt offerings.

 

14-31:10††† And Azariah the chief priest of the house of Zadok answered him, and said, Since the people began to bring the offerings into the house of the LORD, we have had enough to eat, and have left plenty: for the LORD hath blessed his people; and that which is left is this great store.

 

14-32:13††† Know ye not what I and my fathers have done unto all the people of other lands? were the gods of the nations of those lands any ways able to deliver their lands out of mine hand?

 

14-32:17††† He wrote also letters to rail on the LORD God of Israel, and to speak against him, saying, As the gods of the nations of other lands have not delivered their people out of mine hand, so shall not the God of Hezekiah deliver his people out of mine hand.

 

14-33:7†††† And he set a carved image, the idol which he had made, in the house of God, of which God had said to David and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen before all the tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:

 

14-33:8†††† Neither will I any more remove the foot of Israel from out of the land which I have appointed for your fathers; so that they will take heed to do all that I have commanded them, according to the whole law and the statutes and the ordinances by the hand of Moses.

 

14-34:15††† And Hilkiah answered and said to Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the LORD. And Hilkiah delivered the book to Shaphan.

 

14-34:17††† And they have gathered together the money that was found in the house of the LORD, and have delivered it into the hand of the overseers, and to the hand of the workmen.

 

14-34:21††† Go, enquire of the LORD for me, and for them that are left in Israel and in Judah, concerning the words of the book that is found: for great is the wrath of the LORD that is poured out upon us, because our fathers have not kept the word of the LORD, to do after all that is written in this book.

 

14-34:24††† Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the curses that are written in the book which they have read before the king of Judah:

 

14-34:25††† Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be poured out upon this place, and shall not be quenched.

 

14-34:27††† Because thine heart was tender, and thou didst humble thyself before God, when thou heardest his words against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, and humbledst thyself before me, and didst rend thy clothes, and weep before me; I have even heard thee also, saith the LORD.

 

14-35:21††† But he sent ambassadors to him, saying, What have I to do with thee, thou king of Judah? I come not against thee this day, but against the house wherewith I have war: for God commanded me to make haste: forbear thee from meddling with God, who is with me, that he destroy thee not.

 

14-35:23††† And the archers shot at king Josiah; and the king said to his servants, Have me away; for I am sore wounded.

 

15-EZRA

15-4:3††††† But Zerubbabel, and Jeshua, and the rest of the chief of the fathers of Israel, said unto them, Ye have nothing to do with us to build an house unto our God; but we ourselves together will build unto the LORD God of Israel, as king Cyrus the king of Persia hath commanded us.

 

15-4:12†††† Be it known unto the king, that the Jews which came up from thee to us are come unto Jerusalem, building the rebellious and the bad city, and have set up the walls thereof, and joined the foundations.

 

15-4:14†††† Now because we have maintenance from the kingís palace, and it was not meet for us to see the kingís dishonour, therefore have we sent and certified the king;

 

15-4:15†††† That search may be made in the book of the records of thy fathers: so shalt thou find in the book of the records, and know that this city is a rebellious city, and hurtful unto kings and provinces, and that they have moved sedition within the same of old time: for which cause was this city destroyed.

 

15-4:16†††† We certify the king that, if this city be builded again, and the walls thereof set up, by this means thou shalt have no portion on this side the river.

 

15-4:19†††† And I commanded, and search hath been made, and it is found that this city of old time hath made insurrection against kings, and that rebellion and sedition have been made therein.

 

15-4:20†††† There have been mighty kings also over Jerusalem, which have ruled over all countries beyond the river; and toll, tribute, and custom, was paid unto them.

 

15-6:9††††† And that which they have need of, both young bullocks, and rams, and lambs, for the burnt offerings of the God of heaven, wheat, salt, wine, and oil, according to the appointment of the priests which are at Jerusalem, let it be given them day by day without fail:

 

15-6:11†††† Also I have made a decree, that whosoever shall alter this word, let timber be pulled down from his house, and being set up, let him be hanged thereon; and let his house be made a dunghill for this.

 

15-6:12†††† And the God that hath caused his name to dwell there destroy all kings and people, that shall put to their hand to alter and to destroy this house of God which is at Jerusalem. I Darius have made a decree; let it be done with speed.

 

15-7:15†††† And to carry the silver and gold, which the king and his counsellors have freely offered unto the God of Israel, whose habitation is in Jerusalem,

 

15-7:20†††† And whatsoever more shall be needful for the house of thy God, which thou shalt have occasion to bestow, bestow it out of the kingís treasure house.

 

15-9:1††††† Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying, The people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the people of the lands, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.

 

15-9:2††††† For they have taken of their daughters for themselves, and for their sons: so that the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands: yea, the hand of the princes and rulers hath been chief in this trespass.

 

15-9:7††††† Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.

 

15-9:10†††† And now, O our God, what shall we say after this? for we have forsaken thy commandments,

 

15-9:11†††† Which thou hast commanded by thy servants the prophets, saying, The land, unto which ye go to possess it, is an unclean land with the filthiness of the people of the lands, with their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their uncleanness.

 

15-10:2†††† And Shechaniah the son of Jehiel, one of the sons of Elam, answered and said unto Ezra, We have trespassed against our God, and have taken strange wives of the people of the land: yet now there is hope in Israel concerning this thing.

 

15-10:10††† And Ezra the priest stood up, and said unto them, Ye have transgressed, and have taken strange wives, to increase the trespass of Israel.

 

15-10:13††† But the people are many, and it is a time of much rain, and we are not able to stand without, neither is this a work of one day or two: for we are many that have transgressed in this thing.

 

15-10:14††† Let now our rulers of all the congregation stand, and let all them which have taken strange wives in our cities come at appointed times, and with them the elders of every city, and the judges thereof, until the fierce wrath of our God for this matter be turned from us.

 

16-NEHEMIAH

16-1:6††††† Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my fatherís house have sinned.

 

16-1:7††††† We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandedst thy servant Moses.

 

16-1:9††††† But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.

 

16-2:5††††† And I said unto the king, If it please the king, and if thy servant have found favour in thy sight, that thou wouldest send me unto Judah, unto the city of my fathersí sepulchres, that I may build it.

 

16-2:20†††† Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.

 

16-4:5††††† And cover not their iniquity, and let not their sin be blotted out from before thee: for they have provoked thee to anger before the builders.

 

16-5:3††††† Some also there were that said, We have mortgaged our lands, vineyards, and houses, that we might buy corn, because of the dearth.

 

16-5:4††††† There were also that said, We have borrowed money for the kingís tribute, and that upon our lands and vineyards.

 

16-5:5††††† Yet now our flesh is as the flesh of our brethren, our children as their children: and, lo, we bring into bondage our sons and our daughters to be servants, and some of our daughters are brought unto bondage already: neither is it in our power to redeem them; for other men have our lands and vineyards.

 

16-5:8††††† And I said unto them, We after our ability have redeemed our brethren the Jews, which were sold unto the heathen; and will ye even sell your brethren? or shall they be sold unto us? Then held they their peace, and found nothing to answer.

 

16-5:14†††† Moreover from the time that I was appointed to be their governor in the land of Judah, from the twentieth year even unto the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes the king, that is, twelve years, I and my brethren have not eaten the bread of the governor.

 

16-5:19†††† Think upon me, my God, for good, according to all that I have done for this people.

 

16-6:13†††† Therefore was he hired, that I should be afraid, and do so, and sin, and that they might have matter for an evil report, that they might reproach me.

 

16-6:14†††† My God, think thou upon Tobiah and Sanballat according to these their works, and on the prophetess Noadiah, and the rest of the prophets, that would have put me in fear.

 

16-9:33†††† Howbeit thou art just in all that is brought upon us; for thou hast done right, but we have done wickedly:

 

16-9:34†††† Neither have our kings, our princes, our priests, nor our fathers, kept thy law, nor hearkened unto thy commandments and thy testimonies, wherewith thou didst testify against them.

 

16-9:35†††† For they have not served thee in their kingdom, and in thy great goodness that thou gavest them, and in the large and fat land which thou gavest before them, neither turned they from their wicked works.

 

16-9:37†††† And it yieldeth much increase unto the kings whom thou hast set over us because of our sins: also they have dominion over our bodies, and over our cattle, at their pleasure, and we are in great distress.

 

16-10:37††† And that we should bring the firstfruits of our dough, and our offerings, and the fruit of all manner of trees, of wine and of oil, unto the priests, to the chambers of the house of our God; and the tithes of our ground unto the Levites, that the same Levites might have the tithes in all the cities of our tillage.

 

16-13:14††† Remember me, O my God, concerning this, and wipe not out my good deeds that I have done for the house of my God, and for the offices thereof.

 

16-13:29††† Remember them, O my God, because they have defiled the priesthood, and the covenant of the priesthood, and of the Levites.

 

17-ESTHER

17-1:18†††† Likewise shall the ladies of Persia and Media say this day unto all the kingís princes, which have heard of the deed of the queen. Thus shall there arise too much contempt and wrath.

 

17-3:9††††† If it please the king, let it be written that they may be destroyed: and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver to the hands of those that have the charge of the business, to bring it into the kingís treasuries.

 

17-4:11†††† All the kingís servants, and the people of the kingís provinces, do know, that whosoever, whether man or woman, shall come unto the king into the inner court, who is not called, there is one law of his to put him to death, except such to whom the king shall hold out the golden sceptre, that he may live: but I have not been called to come in unto the king these thirty days.

 

17-5:4††††† And Esther answered, If it seem good unto the king, let the king and Haman come this day unto the banquet that I have prepared for him.

 

17-5:8††††† If I have found favour in the sight of the king, and if it please the king to grant my petition, and to perform my request, let the king and Haman come to the banquet that I shall prepare for them, and I will do to morrow as the king hath said.

 

17-7:3††††† Then Esther the queen answered and said, If I have found favour in thy sight, O king, and if it please the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request:

 

17-8:5††††† And said, If it please the king, and if I have found favour in his sight, and the thing seem right before the king, and I be pleasing in his eyes, let it be written to reverse the letters devised by Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, which he wrote to destroy the Jews which are in all the kingís provinces:

 

17-8:7††††† Then the king Ahasuerus said unto Esther the queen and to Mordecai the Jew, Behold, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and him they have hanged upon the gallows, because he laid his hand upon the Jews.

 

17-9:1††††† Now in the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar, on the thirteenth day of the same, when the kingís commandment and his decree drew near to be put in execution, in the day that the enemies of the Jews hoped to have power over them, (though it was turned to the contrary, that the Jews had rule over them that hated them;)

 

17-9:12†††† And the king said unto Esther the queen, The Jews have slain and destroyed five hundred men in Shushan the palace, and the ten sons of Haman; what have they done in the rest of the kingís provinces? now what is thy petition? and it shall be granted thee: or what is thy request further? and it shall be done.

 

18-JOB

18-1:5††††† And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.

 

18-1:15†††† And the Sabeans fell upon them, and took them away; yea, they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

 

18-1:17†††† While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Chaldeans made out three bands, and fell upon the camels, and have carried them away, yea, and slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

 

18-3:9††††† Let the stars of the twilight thereof be dark; let it look for light, but have none; neither let it see the dawning of the day:

 

18-3:13†††† For now should I have lain still and been quiet, I should have slept: then had I been at rest,

 

18-4:4††††† Thy words have upholden him that was falling, and thou hast strengthened the feeble knees.

 

18-4:8††††† Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.

 

18-5:3††††† I have seen the foolish taking root: but suddenly I cursed his habitation.

 

18-5:27†††† Lo this, we have searched it, so it is; hear it, and know thou it for thy good.

 

18-6:8††††† Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant me the thing that I long for!

 

18-6:10†††† Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden myself in sorrow: let him not spare; for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.

 

18-6:15†††† My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream of brooks they pass away;

 

18-6:24†††† Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to understand wherein I have erred.

 

18-7:20†††† I have sinned; what shall I do unto thee, O thou preserver of men? why hast thou set me as a mark against thee, so that I am a burden to myself?

 

18-8:4††††† If thy children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression;

 

18-8:18†††† If he destroy him from his place, then it shall deny him, saying, I have not seen thee.

 

18-10:8†††† Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me.

 

18-10:19††† I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried from the womb to the grave.

 

18-12:3†††† But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you: yea, who knoweth not such things as these?

 

18-13:18††† Behold now, I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified.

 

18-14:15††† Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.

 

18-14:22††† But his flesh upon him shall have pain, and his soul within him shall mourn.

 

18-15:17††† I will shew thee, hear me; and that which I have seen I will declare;

 

18-15:18††† Which wise men have told from their fathers, and have not hid it:

 

18-16:2†††† I have heard many such things: miserable comforters are ye all.

 

18-16:3†††† Shall vain words have an end? or what emboldeneth thee that thou answerest?

 

18-16:10††† They have gaped upon me with their mouth; they have smitten me upon the cheek reproachfully; they have gathered themselves together against me.

 

18-16:15††† I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin, and defiled my horn in the dust.

 

18-16:18††† O earth, cover not thou my blood, and let my cry have no place.

 

18-17:13††† If I wait, the grave is mine house: I have made my bed in the darkness.

 

18-17:14††† I have said to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister.

 

18-18:17††† His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name in the street.

 

18-18:19††† He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings.

 

18-19:3†††† These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me.

 

18-19:4†††† And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself.

 

18-19:14††† My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.

 

18-19:21††† Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me.

 

18-20:3†††† I have heard the check of my reproach, and the spirit of my understanding causeth me to answer.

 

18-20:7†††† Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?

 

18-21:3†††† Suffer me that I may speak; and after that I have spoken, mock on.

 

18-21:15††† What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?

 

18-21:29††† Have ye not asked them that go by the way? and do ye not know their tokens,

 

18-22:9†††† Thou hast sent widows away empty, and the arms of the fatherless have been broken.

 

18-22:15††† Hast thou marked the old way which wicked men have trodden?

 

18-22:25††† Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver.

 

18-22:26††† For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God.

 

18-23:11††† My foot hath held his steps, his way have I kept, and not declined.

 

18-23:12††† Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.

 

18-24:7†††† They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold.

 

18-24:19††† Drought and heat consume the snow waters: so doth the grave those which have sinned.

 

18-27:12††† Behold, all ye yourselves have seen it; why then are ye thus altogether vain?

 

18-28:8†††† The lionís whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it.

 

18-28:22††† Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.

 

18-30:1†††† But now they that are younger than I have me in derision, whose fathers I would have disdained to have set with the dogs of my flock.

 

18-30:11††† Because he hath loosed my cord, and afflicted me, they have also let loose the bridle before me.

 

18-30:13††† They mar my path, they set forward my calamity, they have no helper.

 

18-30:16††† And now my soul is poured out upon me; the days of affliction have taken hold upon me.

 

18-31:5†††† If I have walked with vanity, or if my foot hath hasted to deceit;

 

18-31:9†††† If mine heart have been deceived by a woman, or if I have laid wait at my neighbourís door;

 

18-31:16††† If I have withheld the poor from their desire, or have caused the eyes of the widow to fail;

 

18-31:17††† Or have eaten my morsel myself alone, and the fatherless hath not eaten thereof;

 

18-31:18††† (For from my youth he was brought up with me, as with a father, and I have guided her from my motherís womb;)

 

18-31:19††† If I have seen any perish for want of clothing, or any poor without covering;

 

18-31:20††† If his loins have not blessed me, and if he were not warmed with the fleece of my sheep;

 

18-31:21††† If I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless, when I saw my help in the gate:

 

18-31:24††† If I have made gold my hope, or have said to the fine gold, Thou art my confidence;

 

18-31:28††† This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge: for I should have denied the God that is above.

 

18-31:30††† Neither have I suffered my mouth to sin by wishing a curse to his soul.

 

18-31:39††† If I have eaten the fruits thereof without money, or have caused the owners thereof to lose their life:

 

18-32:13††† Lest ye should say, We have found out wisdom: God thrusteth him down, not man.

 

18-33:2†††† Behold, now I have opened my mouth, my tongue hath spoken in my mouth.

 

18-33:8†††† Surely thou hast spoken in mine hearing, and I have heard the voice of thy words, saying,

 

18-33:24††† Then he is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.

 

18-33:27††† He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;

 

18-34:2†††† Hear my words, O ye wise men; and give ear unto me, ye that have knowledge.

 

18-34:31††† Surely it is meet to be said unto God, I have borne chastisement, I will not offend any more:

 

18-34:32††† That which I see not teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.

 

18-35:3†††† For thou saidst, What advantage will it be unto thee? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin?

 

18-36:2†††† Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on Godís behalf.

 

18-36:9†††† Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded.

 

18-36:16††† Even so would he have removed thee out of the strait into a broad place, where there is no straitness; and that which should be set on thy table should be full of fatness.

 

18-38:17††† Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?

 

18-38:23††† Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

 

18-39:6†††† Whose house I have made the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings.

 

18-40:5†††† Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.

 

18-42:3†††† Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.

 

18-42:5†††† I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.

 

18-42:7†††† And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.

 

18-42:8†††† Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job.

 

19-PSALMS

19-2:4††††† He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

 

19-2:6††††† Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

 

19-2:7††††† I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

 

19-3:6††††† I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.

 

19-4:1††††† Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.

 

19-5:10†††† Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.

 

19-6:2††††† Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.

 

19-7:3††††† O LORD my God, if I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;

 

19-7:4††††† If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)

 

19-8:6††††† Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

 

19-9:13†††† Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:

 

19-10:2†††† The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.

 

19-12:4†††† Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?

 

19-13:4†††† Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

 

19-13:5†††† But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.

 

19-14:1†††† The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

 

19-14:4†††† Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.

 

19-14:6†††† Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.

 

19-16:6†††† The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.

 

19-16:8†††† I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

 

19-17:4†††† Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.

 

19-17:6†††† I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.

 

19-17:11††† They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;

 

19-17:14††† From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.

 

19-18:21††† For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.

 

19-18:29††† For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.

 

19-18:37††† I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.

 

19-18:38††† I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.

 

19-18:43††† Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.

 

19-19:13††† Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

 

19-22:12††† Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

 

19-22:16††† For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

 

19-25:6†††† Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.

 

19-25:16††† Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.

 

19-26:1†††† Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.

 

19-26:3†††† For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.

 

19-26:4†††† I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.

 

19-26:5†††† I have hated the congregation of evildoers; and will not sit with the wicked.

 

19-26:8†††† LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.

 

19-27:4†††† One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

 

19-27:7†††† Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

 

19-30:10††† Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.

 

19-31:4†††† Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.

 

19-31:6†††† I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the LORD.

 

19-31:9†††† Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.

 

19-31:13††† For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.

 

19-31:17††† Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.

 

19-32:5†††† I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.

 

19-32:9†††† Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.

 

19-33:21††† For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.

 

19-35:7†††† For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.

 

19-35:25††† Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.

 

19-37:14††† The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.

 

19-37:25††† I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

 

19-37:35††† I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

 

19-38:8†††† I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.

 

19-40:9†††† I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.

 

19-40:10††† I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.

 

19-40:12††† For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.

 

19-41:4†††† I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.

 

19-42:3†††† My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?

 

19-44:1†††† We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.

 

19-44:17††† All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten thee, neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant.

 

19-44:18††† Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy way;

 

19-44:20††† If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god;

 

19-45:1†††† My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

 

19-45:8†††† All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.

 

19-48:8†††† As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah.

 

19-48:9†††† We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple.

 

19-49:14††† Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.

 

19-50:5†††† Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.

 

19-50:8†††† I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.

 

19-51:1†††† Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

 

19-51:4†††† Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

 

19-53:1†††† The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.

 

19-53:4†††† Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.

 

19-54:3†††† For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah.

 

19-55:9†††† Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.

 

19-55:12††† For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:

 

19-55:19††† God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.

 

19-56:4†††† In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

 

19-56:11††† In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.

 

19-57:6†††† They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah.

 

19-59:8†††† But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision.

 

19-62:11††† God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.

 

19-63:2†††† To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

 

19-66:14††† Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.

 

19-68:13††† Though ye have lien among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.

 

19-68:24††† They have seen thy goings, O God; even the goings of my God, my King, in the sanctuary.

 

19-69:7†††† Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.

 

19-69:22††† Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.

 

19-69:35††† For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.

 

19-71:6†††† By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my motherís bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.

 

19-71:17††† O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.

 

19-71:18††† Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.

 

19-72:8†††† He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.

 

19-73:7†††† Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.

 

19-73:13††† Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.

 

19-73:14††† For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.

 

19-73:25††† Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.

 

19-73:28††† But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.

 

19-74:7†††† They have cast fire into thy sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of thy name to the ground.

 

19-74:8†††† They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.

 

19-74:18††† Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached, O LORD, and that the foolish people have blasphemed thy name.

 

19-74:20††† Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.

 

19-76:5†††† The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands.

 

19-77:5†††† I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.

 

19-78:3†††† Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.

 

19-79:1†††† O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps.

 

19-79:2†††† The dead bodies of thy servants have they given to be meat unto the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of thy saints unto the beasts of the earth.

 

19-79:3†††† Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; and there was none to bury them.

 

19-79:6†††† Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name.

 

19-79:7†††† For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling place.

 

19-79:12††† And render unto our neighbours sevenfold into their bosom their reproach, wherewith they have reproached thee, O Lord.

 

19-81:14††† I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.

 

19-81:15††† The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever.

 

19-81:16††† He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.

 

19-82:6†††† I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

 

19-83:2†††† For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

 

19-83:3†††† They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

 

19-83:4†††† They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

 

19-83:5†††† For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

 

19-83:8†††† Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

 

19-85:10††† Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

 

19-86:14††† O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before them.

 

19-86:16††† O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.

 

19-88:1†††† O LORD God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee:

 

19-88:9†††† Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction: LORD, I have called daily upon thee, I have stretched out my hands unto thee.

 

19-88:13††† But unto thee have I cried, O LORD; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent thee.

 

19-88:16††† Thy fierce wrath goeth over me; thy terrors have cut me off.

 

19-89:2†††† For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.

 

19-89:3†††† I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,

 

19-89:19††† Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.

 

19-89:20††† I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:

 

19-89:35††† Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.

 

19-89:51††† Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O LORD; wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.

 

19-90:15††† Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.

 

19-93:3†††† The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.

 

19-94:20††† Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?

 

19-95:10††† Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:

 

19-98:3†††† He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

 

19-102:9††† For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping,

 

19-102:13†† Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.

 

19-102:27†† But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

 

19-104:12†† By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.

 

19-104:33†† I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.

 

19-106:6††† We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.

 

19-109:2††† For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.

 

19-109:5††† And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.

 

19-111:2††† The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.

 

19-111:10†† The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

 

19-115:5††† They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:

 

19-115:6††† They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:

 

19-115:7††† They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.

 

19-116:10†† I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:

 

19-118:26†† Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.

 

19-119:6††† Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.

 

19-119:7††† I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.

 

19-119:10†† With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.

 

19-119:11†† Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

 

19-119:13†† With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.

 

19-119:14†† I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.

 

19-119:15†† I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.

 

19-119:22†† Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy testimonies.

 

19-119:26†† I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy statutes.

 

19-119:30†† I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.

 

19-119:31†† I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame.

 

19-119:40†† Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.

 

19-119:42†† So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word.

 

19-119:43†† And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.

 

19-119:47†† And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.

 

19-119:48†† My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.

 

19-119:51†† The proud have had me greatly in derision: yet have I not declined from thy law.

 

19-119:52†† I remembered thy judgments of old, O LORD; and have comforted myself.

 

19-119:54†† Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.

 

19-119:55†† I have remembered thy name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept thy law.

 

19-119:57†† CHETH. Thou art my portion, O LORD: I have said that I would keep thy words.

 

19-119:61†† The bands of the wicked have robbed me: but I have not forgotten thy law.

 

19-119:66†† Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.

 

19-119:67†† Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.

 

19-119:69†† The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.

 

19-119:71†† It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.

 

19-119:73†† JOD. Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.

 

19-119:74†† They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word.

 

19-119:79†† Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have known thy testimonies.

 

19-119:85†† The proud have digged pits for me, which are not after thy law.

 

19-119:92†† Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction.

 

19-119:94†† I am thine, save me; for I have sought thy precepts.

 

19-119:95†† The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider thy testimonies.

 

19-119:96†† I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.

 

19-119:99†† I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.

 

19-119:101I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.

 

19-119:102I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me.

 

19-119:106I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.

 

19-119:110The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts.

 

19-119:111Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.

 

19-119:112I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end.

 

19-119:117Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto thy statutes continually.

 

19-119:121AIN. I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine oppressors.

 

19-119:126It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law.

 

19-119:133Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

 

19-119:139My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.

 

19-119:143Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet thy commandments are my delights.

 

19-119:152Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever.

 

19-119:161SCHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.

 

19-119:165Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

 

19-119:166LORD, I have hoped for thy salvation, and done thy commandments.

 

19-119:168I have kept thy precepts and thy testimonies: for all my ways are before thee.

 

19-119:173Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.

 

19-119:174I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law is my delight.

 

19-119:176I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.

 

19-123:2††† Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.

 

19-123:3††† Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.

 

19-129:1††† Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say:

 

19-129:2††† Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.

 

19-130:1††† Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD.

 

19-131:2††† Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.

 

19-132:14†† This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

 

19-132:17†† There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.

 

19-135:16†† They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not;

 

19-135:17†† They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths.

 

19-140:3††† They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; addersí poison is under their lips. Selah.

 

19-140:4††† Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.

 

19-140:5††† The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for me. Selah.

 

19-141:9††† Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.

 

19-142:3††† When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.

 

19-143:3††† For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.

 

19-146:2††† While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.

 

19-147:20†† He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.

 

19-149:9††† To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.

 

20-PROVERBS

20-1:14†††† Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:

 

20-1:24†††† Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

 

20-1:25†††† But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

 

20-3:30†††† Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.

 

20-4:11†††† I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

 

20-4:16†††† For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.

 

20-5:12†††† And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;

 

20-5:13†††† And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!

 

20-7:14†††† I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.

 

20-7:15†††† Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.

 

20-7:16†††† I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.

 

20-7:17†††† I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.

 

20-7:26†††† For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.

 

20-8:14†††† Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.

 

20-9:5††††† Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled.

 

20-13:3†††† He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

 

20-14:26††† In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge.

 

20-17:2†††† A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.

 

20-19:10††† Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.

 

20-20:4†††† The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.

 

20-20:9†††† Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?

 

20-22:19††† That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee.

 

20-22:20††† Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge,

 

20-22:28††† Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.

 

20-23:24††† The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.

 

20-23:35††† They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.

 

20-24:23††† These things also belong to the wise. It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment.

 

20-25:7†††† For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.

 

20-27:27††† And thou shalt have goatsí milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens.

 

20-28:10††† Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: but the upright shall have good things in possession.

 

20-28:13††† He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

 

20-28:19††† He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.

 

20-28:21††† To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.

 

20-28:27††† He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.

 

20-29:21††† He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child shall have him become his son at the length.

 

20-30:2†††† Surely I am more brutish than any man, and have not the understanding of a man.

 

20-30:3†††† I neither learned wisdom, nor have the knowledge of the holy.

 

20-30:7†††† Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die:

 

20-30:20††† Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.

 

20-30:27††† The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;

 

20-31:11††† The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

 

20-31:29††† Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

 

21-ECCLESIASTES

21-1:14†††† I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.

 

21-1:16†††† I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.

 

21-2:19†††† And who knoweth whether he shall be a wise man or a fool? yet shall he have rule over all my labour wherein I have laboured, and wherein I have shewed myself wise under the sun. This is also vanity.

 

21-3:10†††† I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.

 

21-3:19†††† For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.

 

21-4:9††††† Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

 

21-4:11†††† Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?

 

21-4:16†††† There is no end of all the people, even of all that have been before them: they also that come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also is vanity and vexation of spirit.

 

21-5:13†††† There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt.

 

21-5:18†††† Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion.

 

21-6:1††††† There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is common among men:

 

21-6:3††††† If a man beget an hundred children, and live many years, so that the days of his years be many, and his soul be not filled with good, and also that he have no burial; I say, that an untimely birth is better than he.

 

21-7:12†††† For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.

 

21-7:15†††† All things have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a just man that perisheth in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his life in his wickedness.

 

21-7:23†††† All this have I proved by wisdom: I said, I will be wise; but it was far from me.

 

21-7:27†††† Behold, this have I found, saith the preacher, counting one by one, to find out the account:

 

21-7:28†††† Which yet my soul seeketh, but I find not: one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found.

 

21-7:29†††† Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.
