GEN 32:3 And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother unto the land

of Seir, the country of Edom.

GEN 32:4 And he commanded them, saying, Thus shall ye speak unto my lord Esau;

Thy servant Jacob saith thus, I have sojourned with Laban, and stayed there

until now:

GEN 32:5 And I have oxen, and asses, flocks, and menservants, and

womenservants: and I have sent to tell my lord, that I may find grace in thy


GEN 32:6 And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, We came to thy brother

Esau, and also he cometh to meet thee, and four hundred men with him.

GEN 32:7 Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed: and he divided the

people that was with him, and the flocks, and herds, and the camels, into two


GEN 32:8 And said, If Esau come to the one company, and smite it, then the

other company which is left shall escape.

GEN 32:9 And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham, and God of my father

Isaac, the LORD which saidst unto me, Return unto thy country, and to thy

kindred, and I will deal well with thee:

GEN 32:10 I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the

truth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant; for with my staff I passed over

this Jordan; and now I am become two bands.

GEN 32:11 Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the hand

of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and the mother with the


GEN 32:12 And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good, and make thy seed as the

sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.

GEN 32:13 And he lodged there that same night; and took of that which came to

his hand a present for Esau his brother;

GEN 32:14 Two hundred she goats, and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes, and

twenty rams,

GEN 32:15 Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine, and ten bulls,

twenty she asses, and ten foals.

GEN 32:16 And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by

themselves; and said unto his servants, Pass over before me, and put a space

betwixt drove and drove.

GEN 32:17 And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother meeteth

thee, and asketh thee, saying, Whose art thou? and whither goest thou? and whose

are these before thee?

GEN 32:18 Then thou shalt say, They be thy servant Jacob's; it is a present

sent unto my lord Esau: and, behold, also he is behind us.

GEN 32:19 And so commanded he the second, and the third, and all that followed

the droves, saying, On this manner shall ye speak unto Esau, when ye find him.

GEN 32:20 And say ye moreover, Behold, thy servant Jacob is behind us. For he

said, I will appease him with the present that goeth before me, and afterward I

will see his face; peradventure he will accept of me.

GEN 32:21 So went the present over before him: and himself lodged that night in

the company.

GEN 34:5 And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter: now his sons

were with his cattle in the field: and Jacob held his peace until they were


GEN 34:30 And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me to make me to

stink among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the

Perizzites: and I being few in number, they shall gather themselves together

against me, and slay me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house.

GEN 41:33 Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set

him over the land of Egypt.

GEN 41:34 Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, and

take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years.

GEN 41:35 And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and

lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.

GEN 41:36 And that food shall be for store to the land against the seven years

of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish not through

the famine.

GEN 41:37 And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all

his servants.

GEN 41:38 And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this

is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?

GEN 41:39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all

this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:

GEN 41:40 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my

people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.

GEN 41:41 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land

of Egypt.

GEN 41:42 And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph's

hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his


GEN 41:43 And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they

cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of


GEN 41:44 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no

man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.

GEN 41:45 And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to

wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out over

all the land of Egypt.

GEN 41:46 And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of

Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all

the land of Egypt.

GEN 41:47 And in the seven plenteous years the earth brought forth by handfuls.

GEN 41:48 And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, which were in the

land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the field, which

was round about every city, laid he up in the same.

GEN 41:49 And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much, until he

left numbering; for it was without number.

GEN 41:50 And unto Joseph were born two sons before the years of famine came,

which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto him.

GEN 41:51 And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said

he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house.

GEN 41:52 And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me

to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.

GEN 41:53 And the seven years of plenteousness, that was in the land of Egypt,

were ended.

GEN 41:54 And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as Joseph had

said: and the dearth was in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was


GEN 41:55 And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to

Pharaoh for bread: and Pharaoh said unto all the Egyptians, Go unto Joseph; what

he saith to you, do.

GEN 41:56 And the famine was over all the face of the earth: and Joseph opened

all the storehouses, and sold unto the Egyptians; and the famine waxed sore in

the land of Egypt.

GEN 41:57 And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph for to buy corn; because

that the famine was so sore in all lands.

EXO 18:17 And Moses' father in law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is

not good.

EXO 18:18 Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that is with

thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to perform it

thyself alone.

EXO 18:19 Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be

with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou mayest bring the causes

unto God:

EXO 18:20 And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew them

the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do.

EXO 18:21 Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as

fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be

rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of


EXO 18:22 And let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall be, that

every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but every small matter they shall

judge: so shall it be easier for thyself, and they shall bear the burden with


EXO 18:23 If thou shalt do this thing, and God command thee so, then thou shalt

be able to endure, and all this people shall also go to their place in peace.

JOS 22:10 And when they came unto the borders of Jordan, that are in the land

of Canaan, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of

Manasseh built there an altar by Jordan, a great altar to see to.

JOS 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.

JOS 22:12 And when the children of Israel heard of it, the whole congregation

of the children of Israel gathered themselves together at Shiloh, to go up to

war against them.

JOS 22:13 And the children of Israel sent unto the children of Reuben, and to

the children of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, into the land of Gilead,

Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest,

JOS 22:14 And with him ten princes, of each chief house a prince throughout all

the tribes of Israel; and each one was an head of the house of their fathers

among the thousands of Israel.

JOS 22:15 And they came unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of

Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, unto the land of Gilead, and they spake

with them, saying,

JOS 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?

JOS 22:17 Is the iniquity of Peor too little for us, from which we are not

cleansed until this day, although there was a plague in the congregation of the


JOS 22:18 But that ye must turn away this day from following the LORD? and it

will be, seeing ye rebel to day against the LORD, that to morrow he will be

wroth with the whole congregation of Israel.

JOS 22:19 Notwithstanding, if the land of your possession be unclean, then pass

ye over unto the land of the possession of the LORD, wherein the LORD'S

tabernacle dwelleth, and take possession among us: but rebel not against the

LORD, nor rebel against us, in building you an altar beside the altar of the

LORD our God.

JOS 22:20 Did not Achan the son of Zerah commit a trespass in the accursed

thing, and wrath fell on all the congregation of Israel? and that man perished

not alone in his iniquity.

JOS 22:21 Then the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half

tribe of Manasseh answered, and said unto the heads of the thousands of Israel,

JOS 22:22 The LORD God of gods, the LORD God of gods, he knoweth, and Israel he

shall know; if it be in rebellion, or if in transgression against the LORD,

(save us not this day,)

JOS 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;

JOS 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?

JOS 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.

JOS 22:26 Therefore we said, Let us now prepare to build us an altar, not for

burnt offering, nor for sacrifice:

JOS 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


JOS 22:28 Therefore said we, that it shall be, when they should so say to us or

to our generations in time to come, that we may say again, Behold the pattern of

the altar of the LORD, which our fathers made, not for burnt offerings, nor for

sacrifices; but it is a witness between us and you.

JOS 22:29 God forbid that we should rebel against the LORD, and turn this day

from following the LORD, to build an altar for burnt offerings, for meat

offerings, or for sacrifices, beside the altar of the LORD our God that is

before his tabernacle.

JOS 22:30 And when Phinehas the priest, and the princes of the congregation and

heads of the thousands of Israel which were with him, heard the words that the

children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the children of Manasseh spake,

it pleased them.

JOS 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.

JOS 22:32 And Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, and the princes, returned

from the children of Reuben, and from the children of Gad, out of the land of

Gilead, unto the land of Canaan, to the children of Israel, and brought them

word again.

JOS 22:33 And the thing pleased the children of Israel; and the children of

Israel blessed God, and did not intend to go up against them in battle, to

destroy the land wherein the children of Reuben and Gad dwelt.

JOS 22:34 And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad called the altar

Ed: for it shall be a witness between us that the LORD is God.

1SA 11:13 And Saul said, There shall not a man be put to death this day: for to

day the LORD hath wrought salvation in Israel.

1SA 18:5 And David went out whithersoever Saul sent him, and behaved himself

wisely: and Saul set him over the men of war, and he was accepted in the sight

of all the people, and also in the sight of Saul's servants.

1SA 18:6 And it came to pass as they came, when David was returned from the

slaughter of the Philistine, that the women came out of all cities of Israel,

singing and dancing, to meet king Saul, with tabrets, with joy, and with

instruments of musick.

1SA 18:7 And the women answered one another as they played, and said, Saul hath

slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.

1SA 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?

1SA 18:9 And Saul eyed David from that day and forward.

1SA 18:10 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the evil spirit from God came

upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with

his hand, as at other times: and there was a javelin in Saul's hand.

1SA 18:11 And Saul cast the javelin; for he said, I will smite David even to

the wall with it. And David avoided out of his presence twice.

1SA 18:12 And Saul was afraid of David, because the LORD was with him, and was

departed from Saul.

1SA 18:13 Therefore Saul removed him from him, and made him his captain over a

thousand; and he went out and came in before the people.

1SA 18:14 And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways; and the LORD was

with him.

1SA 18:15 Wherefore when Saul saw that he behaved himself very wisely, he was

afraid of him.

1SA 18:16 But all Israel and Judah loved David, because he went out and came in

before them.

1SA 18:17 And Saul said to David, Behold my elder daughter Merab, her will I

give thee to wife: only be thou valiant for me, and fight the LORD'S battles.

For Saul said, Let not mine hand be upon him, but let the hand of the

Philistines be upon him.

1SA 18:18 And David said unto Saul, Who am I? and what is my life, or my

father's family in Israel, that I should be son in law to the king?

1SA 18:19 But it came to pass at the time when Merab Saul's daughter should

have been given to David, that she was given unto Adriel the Meholathite to


1SA 18:20 And Michal Saul's daughter loved David: and they told Saul, and the

thing pleased him.

1SA 18:21 And Saul said, I will give him her, that she may be a snare to him,

and that the hand of the Philistines may be against him. Wherefore Saul said to

David, Thou shalt this day be my son in law in the one of the twain.

1SA 18:22 And Saul commanded his servants, saying, Commune with David secretly,

and say, Behold, the king hath delight in thee, and all his servants love thee:

now therefore be the king's son in law.

1SA 18:23 And Saul's servants spake those words in the ears of David. And David

said, Seemeth it to you a light thing to be a king's son in law, seeing that I

am a poor man, and lightly esteemed?

1SA 18:24 And the servants of Saul told him, saying, On this manner spake


1SA 18:25 And Saul said, Thus shall ye say to David, The king desireth not any

dowry, but an hundred foreskins of the Philistines, to be avenged of the king's

enemies. But Saul thought to make David fall by the hand of the Philistines.

1SA 18:26 And when his servants told David these words, it pleased David well

to be the king's son in law: and the days were not expired.

1SA 18:27 Wherefore David arose and went, he and his men, and slew of the

Philistines two hundred men; and David brought their foreskins, and they gave

them in full tale to the king, that he might be the king's son in law. And Saul

gave him Michal his daughter to wife.

1SA 18:28 And Saul saw and knew that the LORD was with David, and that Michal

Saul's daughter loved him.

1SA 18:29 And Saul was yet the more afraid of David; and Saul became David's

enemy continually.

1SA 18:30 Then the princes of the Philistines went forth: and it came to pass,

after they went forth, that David behaved himself more wisely than all the

servants of Saul; so that his name was much set by.

1SA 25:18 Then Abigail made haste, and took two hundred loaves, and two bottles

of wine, and five sheep ready dressed, and five measures of parched corn, and an

hundred clusters of raisins, and two hundred cakes of figs, and laid them on


1SA 25:19 And she said unto her servants, Go on before me; behold, I come after

you. But she told not her husband Nabal.

1SA 25:20 And it was so, as she rode on the ass, that she came down by the

covert of the hill, and, behold, David and his men came down against her; and

she met them.

1SA 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.

1SA 25:22 So and more also do God unto the enemies of David, if I leave of all

that pertain to him by the morning light any that pisseth against the wall.

1SA 25:23 And when Abigail saw David, she hasted, and lighted off the ass, and

fell before David on her face, and bowed herself to the ground,

1SA 25:24 And fell at his feet, and said, Upon me, my lord, upon me let this

iniquity be: and let thine handmaid, I pray thee, speak in thine audience, and

hear the words of thine handmaid.

1SA 25:25 Let not my lord, I pray thee, regard this man of Belial, even Nabal:

for as his name is, so is he; Nabal is his name, and folly is with him: but I

thine handmaid saw not the young men of my lord, whom thou didst send.

1SA 25:26 Now therefore, my lord, as the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth,

seeing the LORD hath withholden thee from coming to shed blood, and from

avenging thyself with thine own hand, now let thine enemies, and they that seek

evil to my lord, be as Nabal.

1SA 25:27 And now this blessing which thine handmaid hath brought unto my lord,

let it even be given unto the young men that follow my lord.

1SA 25:28 I pray thee, forgive the trespass of thine handmaid: for the LORD

will certainly make my lord a sure house; because my lord fighteth the battles

of the LORD, and evil hath not been found in thee all thy days.

1SA 25:29 Yet a man is risen to pursue thee, and to seek thy soul: but the soul

of my lord shall be bound in the bundle of life with the LORD thy God; and the

souls of thine enemies, them shall he sling out, as out of the middle of a


1SA 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;

1SA 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.

2SA 15:33 Unto whom David said, If thou passest on with me, then thou shalt be

a burden unto me:

2SA 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 father's servant hitherto, so will I now

also be thy servant: then mayest thou for me defeat the counsel of Ahithophel.

2SA 15:35 And hast thou not there with thee Zadok and Abiathar the priests?

therefore it shall be, that what thing soever thou shalt hear out of the king's

house, thou shalt tell it to Zadok and Abiathar the priests.

2SA 15:36 Behold, they have there with them their two sons, Ahimaaz Zadok's

son, and Jonathan Abiathar's son; and by them ye shall send unto me every thing

that ye can hear.

2SA 15:37 So Hushai David's friend came into the city, and Absalom came into


1KI 12:7 And they spake unto him, saying, If thou wilt be a servant unto this

people this day, and wilt serve them, and answer them, and speak good words to

them, then they will be thy servants for ever.

1KI 19:3 And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to

Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there.

1KI 19:4 But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and

sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die;

and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than

my fathers.

2KI 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


2KI 7:13 And one of his servants answered and said, Let some take, I pray thee,

five of the horses that remain, which are left in the city, (behold, they are as

all the multitude of Israel that are left in it: behold, I say, they are even as

all the multitude of the Israelites that are consumed:) and let us send and see.

NEH 2:12 And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither told I

any man what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem: neither was there

any beast with me, save the beast that I rode upon.

NEH 2:13 And I went out by night by the gate of the valley, even before the

dragon well, and to the dung port, and viewed the walls of Jerusalem, which were

broken down, and the gates thereof were consumed with fire.

NEH 2:14 Then I went on to the gate of the fountain, and to the king's pool:

but there was no place for the beast that was under me to pass.

NEH 2:15 Then went I up in the night by the brook, and viewed the wall, and

turned back, and entered by the gate of the valley, and so returned.

NEH 2:16 And the rulers knew not whither I went, or what I did; neither had I

as yet told it to the Jews, nor to the priests, nor to the nobles, nor to the

rulers, nor to the rest that did the work.

NEH 4:13 Therefore set I in the lower places behind the wall, and on the higher

places, I even set the people after their families with their swords, their

spears, and their bows.

NEH 4:14 And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the

rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them: remember the

Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and

your daughters, your wives, and your houses.

NEH 4:15 And it came to pass, when our enemies heard that it was known unto us,

and God had brought their counsel to nought, that we returned all of us to the

wall, every one unto his work.

NEH 4:16 And it came to pass from that time forth, that the half of my servants

wrought in the work, and the other half of them held both the spears, the

shields, and the bows, and the habergeons; and the rulers were behind all the

house of Judah.

NEH 4:17 They which builded on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those

that laded, every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the

other hand held a weapon.

NEH 4:18 For the builders, every one had his sword girded by his side, and so

builded. And he that sounded the trumpet was by me.

NEH 4:19 And I said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the

people, The work is great and large, and we are separated upon the wall, one far

from another.

NEH 4:20 In what place therefore ye hear the sound of the trumpet, resort ye

thither unto us: our God shall fight for us.

NEH 4:21 So we laboured in the work: and half of them held the spears from the

rising of the morning till the stars appeared.

NEH 4:22 Likewise at the same time said I unto the people, Let every one with

his servant lodge within Jerusalem, that in the night they may be a guard to us,

and labour on the day.

NEH 4:23 So neither I, nor my brethren, nor my servants, nor the men of the

guard which followed me, none of us put off our clothes, saving that every one

put them off for washing.

JER 26:17 Then rose up certain of the elders of the land, and spake to all the

assembly of the people, saying,

JER 26:18 Micah the Morasthite prophesied in the days of Hezekiah king of

Judah, and spake to all the people of Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD of

hosts; Zion shall be plowed like a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and

the mountain of the house as the high places of a forest.

JER 26:19 Did Hezekiah king of Judah and all Judah put him at all to death? did

he not fear the LORD, and besought the LORD, and the LORD repented him of the

evil which he had pronounced against them? Thus might we procure great evil

against our souls.

JER 26:20 And there was also a man that prophesied in the name of the LORD,

Urijah the son of Shemaiah of Kirjathjearim, who prophesied against this city

and against this land according to all the words of Jeremiah.

JER 26:21 And when Jehoiakim the king, with all his mighty men, and all the

princes, heard his words, the king sought to put him to death: but when Urijah

heard it, he was afraid, and fled, and went into Egypt;

JER 26:22 And Jehoiakim the king sent men into Egypt, namely, Elnathan the son

of Achbor, and certain men with him into Egypt.

JER 26:23 And they fetched forth Urijah out of Egypt, and brought him unto

Jehoiakim the king; who slew him with the sword, and cast his dead body into the

graves of the common people.

DAN 1:8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with

the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he

requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.

DAN 1:9 Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince

of the eunuchs.

DAN 1:10 And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel, I fear my lord the

king, who hath appointed your meat and your drink: for why should he see your

faces worse liking than the children which are of your sort? then shall ye make

me endanger my head to the king.

DAN 1:11 Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set

over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah,

DAN 1:12 Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us

pulse to eat, and water to drink.

DAN 1:13 Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the

countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the king's meat: and as

thou seest, deal with thy servants.

DAN 1:14 So he consented to them in this matter, and proved them ten days.

HOS 14:9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he

shall know them? for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in

them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

AMO 5:13 Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an

evil time.

MAT 1:19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her

a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.

thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

MAT 9:30 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying,

See that no man know it.

MAT 12:14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they

might destroy him.

MAT 12:15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great

multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;

MAT 12:16 And charged them that they should not make him known:

MAT 16:20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he

was Jesus the Christ.

MAR 3:7 But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great

multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,

MAR 3:12 And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known.

MAR 5:43 And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded

that something should be given her to eat.

MAR 7:36 And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he

charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it;

MAR 8:30 And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.

MAR 9:9 And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they

should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen

from the dead.

LUK 14:28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first,

and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?

LUK 14:29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to

finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,

LUK 14:30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.

LUK 14:31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not

down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that

cometh against him with twenty thousand?

LUK 14:32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an

ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.

JOH 7:10 But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the

feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.

JOH 11:47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and

said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.

JOH 11:48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans

shall come and take away both our place and nation.

JOH 11:49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same

year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

JOH 11:50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for

the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

JOH 11:51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he

prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

JOH 11:52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together

in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

JOH 11:53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to


JOH 11:54 Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence

unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there

continued with his disciples.

JOH 12:36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the

children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself

from them.

ACT 12:17 But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace,

declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said,

Go shew these things unto James, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went

into another place.

ACT 14:6 They were ware of it, and fled unto Lystra and Derbe, cities of

Lycaonia, and unto the region that lieth round about:

ACT 16:3 Him would Paul have to go forth with him; and took and circumcised him

because of the Jews which were in those quarters: for they knew all that his

father was a Greek.

ACT 17:10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto

Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.

ACT 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they

received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily,

whether those things were so.

ACT 17:12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were

Greeks, and of men, not a few.

ACT 17:13 But when the Jews of Thessalonica had knowledge that the word of God

was preached of Paul at Berea, they came thither also, and stirred up the


ACT 17:14 And then immediately the brethren sent away Paul to go as it were to

the sea: but Silas and Timotheus abode there still.

ACT 17:15 And they that conducted Paul brought him unto Athens: and receiving a

commandment unto Silas and Timotheus for to come to him with all speed, they


ACT 19:29 And the whole city was filled with confusion: and having caught Gaius

and Aristarchus, men of Macedonia, Paul's companions in travel, they rushed with

one accord into the theatre.

ACT 19:30 And when Paul would have entered in unto the people, the disciples

suffered him not.

ACT 19:31 And certain of the chief of Asia, which were his friends, sent unto

him, desiring him that he would not adventure himself into the theatre.

ACT 19:32 Some therefore cried one thing, and some another: for the assembly

was confused: and the more part knew not wherefore they were come together.

ACT 19:33 And they drew Alexander out of the multitude, the Jews putting him

forward. And Alexander beckoned with the hand, and would have made his defence

unto the people.

ACT 19:34 But when they knew that he was a Jew, all with one voice about the

space of two hours cried out, Great is Diana of the Ephesians.

ACT 19:35 And when the townclerk had appeased the people, he said, Ye men of

Ephesus, what man is there that knoweth not how that the city of the Ephesians

is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana, and of the image which fell down

from Jupiter?

ACT 19:36 Seeing then that these things cannot be spoken against, ye ought to

be quiet, and to do nothing rashly.

ACT 19:37 For ye have brought hither these men, which are neither robbers of

churches, nor yet blasphemers of your goddess.

ACT 19:38 Wherefore if Demetrius, and the craftsmen which are with him, have a

matter against any man, the law is open, and there are deputies: let them

implead one another.

ACT 19:39 But if ye enquire any thing concerning other matters, it shall be

determined in a lawful assembly.

ACT 19:40 For we are in danger to be called in question for this day's uproar,

there being no cause whereby we may give an account of this concourse.

ACT 19:41 And when he had thus spoken, he dismissed the assembly.

ACT 20:22 And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing

the things that shall befall me there:

ACT 20:23 Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds

and afflictions abide me.

ACT 20:24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto

myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I

have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

ACT 20:25 And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching

the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.

ACT 20:37 And they all wept sore, and fell on Paul's neck, and kissed him,

ACT 20:38 Sorrowing most of all for the words which he spake, that they should

see his face no more. And they accompanied him unto the ship.

ACT 21:10 And as we tarried there many days, there came down from Judaea a

certain prophet, named Agabus.

ACT 21:11 And when he was come unto us, he took Paul's girdle, and bound his

own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at

Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the

hands of the Gentiles.

ACT 21:12 And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place,

besought him not to go up to Jerusalem.

ACT 21:13 Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for

I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of

the Lord Jesus.

ACT 21:14 And when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, The will of

the Lord be done.

ACT 21:20 And when they heard it, they glorified the Lord, and said unto him,

Thou seest, brother, how many thousands of Jews there are which believe; and

they are all zealous of the law:

ACT 21:21 And they are informed of thee, that thou teachest all the Jews which

are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, saying that they ought not to

circumcise their children, neither to walk after the customs.

ACT 21:22 What is it therefore? the multitude must needs come together: for

they will hear that thou art come.

ACT 21:23 Do therefore this that we say to thee: We have four men which have a

vow on them;

ACT 21:24 Them take, and purify thyself with them, and be at charges with them,

that they may shave their heads: and all may know that those things, whereof

they were informed concerning thee, are nothing; but that thou thyself also

walkest orderly, and keepest the law.

ACT 21:25 As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded

that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things

offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication.

ACT 21:26 Then Paul took the men, and the next day purifying himself with them

entered into the temple, to signify the accomplishment of the days of

purification, until that an offering should be offered for every one of them.

ACT 23:6 But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the

other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee,

the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in


ROM 14:16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of:

1CO 6:12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all

things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

1CO 8:8 But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the

better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse.

1CO 8:9 But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a

stumblingblock to them that are weak.

1CO 8:10 For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol's

temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those

things which are offered to idols;

1CO 8:11 And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom

Christ died?

1CO 8:12 But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak

conscience, ye sin against Christ.

1CO 8:13 Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh

while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.

1CO 10:25 Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for

conscience sake:

1CO 10:26 For the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof.

1CO 10:27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be

disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for

conscience sake.

1CO 10:28 But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols,

eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is

the Lord's, and the fulness thereof:

1CO 10:29 Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my

liberty judged of another man's conscience?

1CO 10:30 For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for

which I give thanks?

1CO 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to

the glory of God.

1CO 10:32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to

the church of God:

1CO 10:33 Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit,

but the profit of many, that they may be saved.

2CO 8:20 Avoiding this, that no man should blame us in this abundance which is

administered by us:

COL 4:5 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.

JAM 1:19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow

to speak, slow to wrath.
