God (OT)

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Gen 1:2  Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

Gen 1:3  And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.

Gen 1:4  God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.

Gen 1:5  God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day.

Gen 1:6  And God said, "Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water."

Gen 1:7  So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so.

Gen 1:8  God called the vault "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning--the second day.

Gen 1:9  And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear." And it was so.

Gen 1:10  God called the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters he called "seas." And God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:11  Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so.

Gen 1:12  The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:14  And God said, "Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years,

Gen 1:16  God made two great lights--the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.

Gen 1:17  God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth,

Gen 1:18  to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:20  And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky."

Gen 1:21  So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:22  God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth."

Gen 1:24  And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so.

Gen 1:25  God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:26  Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

Gen 1:27  So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

Gen 1:28  God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground."

Gen 1:29  Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.

Gen 1:31  God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning--the sixth day.

Gen 2:2  By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.

Gen 2:3  Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

Gen 2:4  This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the LORD God made the earth and the heavens.

Gen 2:5  Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth and no plant had yet sprung up, for the LORD God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground,

Gen 2:7  Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

Gen 2:8  Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed.

Gen 2:9  The LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground--trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Gen 2:15  The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

Gen 2:16  And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden;

Gen 2:18  The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."

Gen 2:19  Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name.

Gen 2:21  So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and then closed up the place with flesh.

Gen 2:22  Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

Gen 3:1  Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must not eat from any tree in the garden'?"

Gen 3:3  but God did say, 'You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.'"

Gen 3:5  "For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

Gen 3:8  Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

Gen 3:9  But the LORD God called to the man, "Where are you?"

Gen 3:13  Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."

Gen 3:14  So the LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, "Cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life.

Gen 3:21  The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.

Gen 3:22  And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."

Gen 3:23  So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken.

Gen 4:25  Adam made love to his wife again, and she gave birth to a son and named him Seth, saying, "God has granted me another child in place of Abel, since Cain killed him."

Gen 5:1  This is the written account of Adam's family line. When God created mankind, he made them in the likeness of God.

Gen 5:22  After he became the father of Methuselah, Enoch walked faithfully with God 300 years and had other sons and daughters.

Gen 5:24  Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.

Gen 6:2  the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose.

Gen 6:4  The Nephilim were on the earth in those days--and also afterward--when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

Gen 6:9  This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.

Gen 6:11  Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight and was full of violence.

Gen 6:12  God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways.

Gen 6:13  So God said to Noah, "I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth.

Gen 6:22  Noah did everything just as God commanded him.

Gen 7:9  male and female, came to Noah and entered the ark, as God had commanded Noah.

Gen 7:16  The animals going in were male and female of every living thing, as God had commanded Noah. Then the LORD shut him in.

Gen 8:1  But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded.

Gen 8:15  Then God said to Noah,

Gen 9:1  Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth.

Gen 9:6  "Whoever sheds human blood, by humans shall their blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made mankind.

Gen 9:8  Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him:

Gen 9:12  And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come:

Gen 9:16  Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth."

Gen 9:17  So God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth."

Gen 9:26  He also said, "Praise be to the LORD, the God of Shem! May Canaan be the slave of Shem.

Gen 9:27  May God extend Japheth's territory; may Japheth live in the tents of Shem, and may Canaan be the slave of Japheth."

Gen 14:18  Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High,

Gen 14:19  and he blessed Abram, saying, "Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth.

Gen 14:20  And praise be to God Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand." Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything.

Gen 14:22  But Abram said to the king of Sodom, "With raised hand I have sworn an oath to the LORD, God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth,

Gen 16:13  She gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her: "You are the God who sees me," for she said, "I have now seen the One who sees me."

Gen 17:1  When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to him and said, "I am God Almighty; walk before me faithfully and be blameless.

Gen 17:3  Abram fell facedown, and God said to him,

Gen 17:7  I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you.

Gen 17:8  The whole land of Canaan, where you now reside as a foreigner, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God."

Gen 17:9  Then God said to Abraham, "As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you for the generations to come.

Gen 17:15  God also said to Abraham, "As for Sarai your wife, you are no longer to call her Sarai; her name will be Sarah.

Gen 17:18  And Abraham said to God, "If only Ishmael might live under your blessing!"

Gen 17:19  Then God said, "Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him.

Gen 17:22  When he had finished speaking with Abraham, God went up from him.

Gen 17:23  On that very day Abraham took his son Ishmael and all those born in his household or bought with his money, every male in his household, and circumcised them, as God told him.

Gen 19:29  So when God destroyed the cities of the plain, he remembered Abraham, and he brought Lot out of the catastrophe that overthrew the cities where Lot had lived.

Gen 20:3  But God came to Abimelek in a dream one night and said to him, "You are as good as dead because of the woman you have taken; she is a married woman."

Gen 20:6  Then God said to him in the dream, "Yes, I know you did this with a clear conscience, and so I have kept you from sinning against me. That is why I did not let you touch her.

Gen 20:11  Abraham replied, "I said to myself, 'There is surely no fear of God in this place, and they will kill me because of my wife.'

Gen 20:13  And when God had me wander from my father's household, I said to her, 'This is how you can show your love to me: Everywhere we go, say of me, "He is my brother."'"

Gen 20:17  Then Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelek, his wife and his female slaves so they could have children again,

Gen 21:2  Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him.

Gen 21:4  When his son Isaac was eight days old, Abraham circumcised him, as God commanded him.

Gen 21:6  Sarah said, "God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me."

Gen 21:12  But God said to him, "Do not be so distressed about the boy and your slave woman. Listen to whatever Sarah tells you, because it is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.

Gen 21:17  God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, "What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there.

Gen 21:19  Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water. So she went and filled the skin with water and gave the boy a drink.

Gen 21:20  God was with the boy as he grew up. He lived in the desert and became an archer.

Gen 21:22  At that time Abimelek and Phicol the commander of his forces said to Abraham, "God is with you in everything you do.

Gen 21:23  Now swear to me here before God that you will not deal falsely with me or my children or my descendants. Show to me and the country where you now reside as a foreigner the same kindness I have shown to you."

Gen 21:33  Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there he called on the name of the LORD, the Eternal God.

Gen 22:1  Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, "Abraham!" "Here I am," he replied.

Gen 22:2  Then God said, "Take your son, your only son, whom you love--Isaac--and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you."

Gen 22:3  Early the next morning Abraham got up and loaded his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about.

Gen 22:8  Abraham answered, "God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son." And the two of them went on together.

Gen 22:9  When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.

Gen 22:12  "Do not lay a hand on the boy," he said. "Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son."

Gen 24:3  I want you to swear by the LORD, the God of heaven and the God of earth, that you will not get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I am living,

Gen 24:7  "The LORD, the God of heaven, who brought me out of my father's household and my native land and who spoke to me and promised me on oath, saying, 'To your offspring I will give this land'--he will send his angel before you so that you can get a wife for my son from there.

Gen 24:12  Then he prayed, "LORD, God of my master Abraham, make me successful today, and show kindness to my master Abraham.

Gen 24:27  saying, "Praise be to the LORD, the God of my master Abraham, who has not abandoned his kindness and faithfulness to my master. As for me, the LORD has led me on the journey to the house of my master's relatives."

Gen 24:42  "When I came to the spring today, I said, 'LORD, God of my master Abraham, if you will, please grant success to the journey on which I have come.

Gen 24:48  and I bowed down and worshiped the LORD. I praised the LORD, the God of my master Abraham, who had led me on the right road to get the granddaughter of my master's brother for his son.

Gen 25:11  After Abraham's death, God blessed his son Isaac, who then lived near Beer Lahai Roi.

Gen 26:24  That night the LORD appeared to him and said, "I am the God of your father Abraham. Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bless you and will increase the number of your descendants for the sake of my servant Abraham."

Gen 27:20  Isaac asked his son, "How did you find it so quickly, my son?" "The LORD your God gave me success," he replied.

Gen 27:28  May God give you heaven's dew and earth's richness-- an abundance of grain and new wine.

Gen 28:3  May God Almighty bless you and make you fruitful and increase your numbers until you become a community of peoples.

Gen 28:4  May he give you and your descendants the blessing given to Abraham, so that you may take possession of the land where you now reside as a foreigner, the land God gave to Abraham."

Gen 28:12  He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.

Gen 28:13  There above it stood the LORD, and he said: "I am the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying.

Gen 28:17  He was afraid and said, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven."

Gen 28:20  Then Jacob made a vow, saying, "If God will be with me and will watch over me on this journey I am taking and will give me food to eat and clothes to wear

Gen 28:21  so that I return safely to my father's household, then the LORD will be my God

Gen 28:22  and this stone that I have set up as a pillar will be God's house, and of all that you give me I will give you a tenth."

Gen 30:2  Jacob became angry with her and said, "Am I in the place of God, who has kept you from having children?"

Gen 30:6  Then Rachel said, "God has vindicated me; he has listened to my plea and given me a son." Because of this she named him Dan.

Gen 30:17  God listened to Leah, and she became pregnant and bore Jacob a fifth son.

Gen 30:18  Then Leah said, "God has rewarded me for giving my servant to my husband." So she named him Issachar.

Gen 30:20  Then Leah said, "God has presented me with a precious gift. This time my husband will treat me with honor, because I have borne him six sons." So she named him Zebulun.

Gen 30:22  Then God remembered Rachel; he listened to her and enabled her to conceive.

Gen 30:23  She became pregnant and gave birth to a son and said, "God has taken away my disgrace."

Gen 31:5  He said to them, "I see that your father's attitude toward me is not what it was before, but the God of my father has been with me.

Gen 31:7  yet your father has cheated me by changing my wages ten times. However, God has not allowed him to harm me.

Gen 31:9  So God has taken away your father's livestock and has given them to me.

Gen 31:11  The angel of God said to me in the dream, 'Jacob.' I answered, 'Here I am.'

Gen 31:13  I am the God of Bethel, where you anointed a pillar and where you made a vow to me. Now leave this land at once and go back to your native land.'"

Gen 31:16  Surely all the wealth that God took away from our father belongs to us and our children. So do whatever God has told you."

Gen 31:24  Then God came to Laban the Aramean in a dream at night and said to him, "Be careful not to say anything to Jacob, either good or bad."

Gen 31:29  I have the power to harm you; but last night the God of your father said to me, 'Be careful not to say anything to Jacob, either good or bad.'

Gen 31:42  If the God of my father, the God of Abraham and the Fear of Isaac, had not been with me, you would surely have sent me away empty-handed. But God has seen my hardship and the toil of my hands, and last night he rebuked you."

Gen 31:50  If you mistreat my daughters or if you take any wives besides my daughters, even though no one is with us, remember that God is a witness between you and me."

Gen 31:53  May the God of Abraham and the God of Nahor, the God of their father, judge between us." So Jacob took an oath in the name of the Fear of his father Isaac.

Gen 32:1  Jacob also went on his way, and the angels of God met him.

Gen 32:2  When Jacob saw them, he said, "This is the camp of God!" So he named that place Mahanaim.

Gen 32:9  Then Jacob prayed, "O God of my father Abraham, God of my father Isaac, LORD, you who said to me, 'Go back to your country and your relatives, and I will make you prosper,'

Gen 32:28  Then the man said, "Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome."

Gen 32:30  So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, "It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared."

Gen 33:5  Then Esau looked up and saw the women and children. "Who are these with you?" he asked. Jacob answered, "They are the children God has graciously given your servant."

Gen 33:10  "No, please!" said Jacob. "If I have found favor in your eyes, accept this gift from me. For to see your face is like seeing the face of God, now that you have received me favorably.

Gen 33:11  Please accept the present that was brought to you, for God has been gracious to me and I have all I need." And because Jacob insisted, Esau accepted it.

Gen 35:1  Then God said to Jacob, "Go up to Bethel and settle there, and build an altar there to God, who appeared to you when you were fleeing from your brother Esau."

Gen 35:3  Then come, let us go up to Bethel, where I will build an altar to God, who answered me in the day of my distress and who has been with me wherever I have gone."

Gen 35:5  Then they set out, and the terror of God fell on the towns all around them so that no one pursued them.

Gen 35:7  There he built an altar, and he called the place El Bethel, because it was there that God revealed himself to him when he was fleeing from his brother.

Gen 35:9  After Jacob returned from Paddan Aram, God appeared to him again and blessed him.

Gen 35:10  God said to him, "Your name is Jacob, but you will no longer be called Jacob; your name will be Israel." So he named him Israel.

Gen 35:11  And God said to him, "I am God Almighty; be fruitful and increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will be among your descendants.

Gen 35:13  Then God went up from him at the place where he had talked with him.

Gen 35:14  Jacob set up a stone pillar at the place where God had talked with him, and he poured out a drink offering on it; he also poured oil on it.

Gen 35:15  Jacob called the place where God had talked with him Bethel.

Gen 39:9  No one is greater in this house than I am. My master has withheld nothing from me except you, because you are his wife. How then could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?"

Gen 40:8  "We both had dreams," they answered, "but there is no one to interpret them." Then Joseph said to them, "Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell me your dreams."

Gen 41:16  "I cannot do it," Joseph replied to Pharaoh, "but God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires."

Gen 41:25  Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, "The dreams of Pharaoh are one and the same. God has revealed to Pharaoh what he is about to do.

Gen 41:28  "It is just as I said to Pharaoh: God has shown Pharaoh what he is about to do.

Gen 41:32  The reason the dream was given to Pharaoh in two forms is that the matter has been firmly decided by God, and God will do it soon.

Gen 41:38  So Pharaoh asked them, "Can we find anyone like this man, one in whom is the spirit of God?"

Gen 41:39  Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Since God has made all this known to you, there is no one so discerning and wise as you.

Gen 41:51  Joseph named his firstborn Manasseh and said, "It is because God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father's household."

Gen 41:52  The second son he named Ephraim and said, "It is because God has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering."

Gen 42:18  On the third day, Joseph said to them, "Do this and you will live, for I fear God:

Gen 42:28  "My silver has been returned," he said to his brothers. "Here it is in my sack." Their hearts sank and they turned to each other trembling and said, "What is this that God has done to us?"

Gen 43:14  And may God Almighty grant you mercy before the man so that he will let your other brother and Benjamin come back with you. As for me, if I am bereaved, I am bereaved."

Gen 43:23  "It's all right," he said. "Don't be afraid. Your God, the God of your father, has given you treasure in your sacks; I received your silver." Then he brought Simeon out to them.

Gen 43:29  As he looked about and saw his brother Benjamin, his own mother's son, he asked, "Is this your youngest brother, the one you told me about?" And he said, "God be gracious to you, my son."

Gen 44:16  "What can we say to my lord?" Judah replied. "What can we say? How can we prove our innocence? God has uncovered your servants' guilt. We are now my lord's slaves--we ourselves and the one who was found to have the cup."

Gen 45:5  And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you.

Gen 45:7  But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance.

Gen 45:8  "So then, it was not you who sent me here, but God. He made me father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household and ruler of all Egypt.

Gen 45:9  Now hurry back to my father and say to him, 'This is what your son Joseph says: God has made me lord of all Egypt. Come down to me; don't delay.

Gen 46:1  So Israel set out with all that was his, and when he reached Beersheba, he offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac.

Gen 46:2  And God spoke to Israel in a vision at night and said, "Jacob! Jacob!" "Here I am," he replied.

Gen 46:3  "I am God, the God of your father," he said. "Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for I will make you into a great nation there.

Gen 48:3  Jacob said to Joseph, "God Almighty appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and there he blessed me

Gen 48:9  "They are the sons God has given me here," Joseph said to his father. Then Israel said, "Bring them to me so I may bless them."

Gen 48:11  Israel said to Joseph, "I never expected to see your face again, and now God has allowed me to see your children too."

Gen 48:15  Then he blessed Joseph and said, "May the God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked faithfully, the God who has been my shepherd all my life to this day,

Gen 48:20  He blessed them that day and said, "In your name will Israel pronounce this blessing: 'May God make you like Ephraim and Manasseh.'" So he put Ephraim ahead of Manasseh.

Gen 48:21  Then Israel said to Joseph, "I am about to die, but God will be with you and take you back to the land of your fathers.

Gen 49:25  because of your father's God, who helps you, because of the Almighty, who blesses you with blessings of the skies above, blessings of the deep springs below, blessings of the breast and womb.

Gen 50:17  'This is what you are to say to Joseph: I ask you to forgive your brothers the sins and the wrongs they committed in treating you so badly.' Now please forgive the sins of the servants of the God of your father." When their message came to him, Joseph wept.

Gen 50:19  But Joseph said to them, "Don't be afraid. Am I in the place of God?

Gen 50:20  You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.

Gen 50:24  Then Joseph said to his brothers, "I am about to die. But God will surely come to your aid and take you up out of this land to the land he promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob."

Gen 50:25  And Joseph made the Israelites swear an oath and said, "God will surely come to your aid, and then you must carry my bones up from this place."

Exo 1:17  The midwives, however, feared God and did not do what the king of Egypt had told them to do; they let the boys live.

Exo 1:20  So God was kind to the midwives and the people increased and became even more numerous.

Exo 1:21  And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families of their own.

Exo 2:23  During that long period, the king of Egypt died. The Israelites groaned in their slavery and cried out, and their cry for help because of their slavery went up to God.

Exo 2:24  God heard their groaning and he remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob.

Exo 2:25  So God looked on the Israelites and was concerned about them.

Exo 3:1  Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God.

Exo 3:4  When the LORD saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, "Moses! Moses!" And Moses said, "Here I am."

Exo 3:5  "Do not come any closer," God said. "Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground."

Exo 3:6  Then he said, "I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob." At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.

Exo 3:11  But Moses said to God, "Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?"

Exo 3:12  And God said, "I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain."

Exo 3:13  Moses said to God, "Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they ask me, 'What is his name?' Then what shall I tell them?"

Exo 3:14  God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.'"

Exo 3:15  God also said to Moses, "Say to the Israelites, 'The LORD, the God of your fathers--the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob--has sent me to you.' "This is my name forever, the name you shall call me from generation to generation.

Exo 3:16  "Go, assemble the elders of Israel and say to them, 'The LORD, the God of your fathers--the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob--appeared to me and said: I have watched over you and have seen what has been done to you in Egypt.

Exo 3:18  "The elders of Israel will listen to you. Then you and the elders are to go to the king of Egypt and say to him, 'The LORD, the God of the Hebrews, has met with us. Let us take a three-day journey into the wilderness to offer sacrifices to the LORD our God.'

Exo 4:5  "This," said the LORD, "is so that they may believe that the LORD, the God of their fathers--the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob--has appeared to you."

Exo 4:16  He will speak to the people for you, and it will be as if he were your mouth and as if you were God to him.

Exo 4:20  So Moses took his wife and sons, put them on a donkey and started back to Egypt. And he took the staff of God in his hand.

Exo 4:27  The LORD said to Aaron, "Go into the wilderness to meet Moses." So he met Moses at the mountain of God and kissed him.

Exo 5:1  Afterward Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'Let my people go, so that they may hold a festival to me in the wilderness.'"

Exo 5:3  Then they said, "The God of the Hebrews has met with us. Now let us take a three-day journey into the wilderness to offer sacrifices to the LORD our God, or he may strike us with plagues or with the sword."

Exo 5:8  But require them to make the same number of bricks as before; don't reduce the quota. They are lazy; that is why they are crying out, 'Let us go and sacrifice to our God.'

Exo 6:2  God also said to Moses, "I am the LORD.

Exo 6:3  I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as God Almighty, but by my name the LORD I did not make myself fully known to them.

Exo 6:7  I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.

Exo 7:1  Then the LORD said to Moses, "See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet.

Exo 7:16  Then say to him, 'The LORD, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to say to you: Let my people go, so that they may worship me in the wilderness. But until now you have not listened.

Exo 8:10  "Tomorrow," Pharaoh said. Moses replied, "It will be as you say, so that you may know there is no one like the LORD our God.

Exo 8:19  the magicians said to Pharaoh, "This is the finger of God." But Pharaoh's heart was hard and he would not listen, just as the LORD had said.

Exo 8:25  Then Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, "Go, sacrifice to your God here in the land."

Exo 8:26  But Moses said, "That would not be right. The sacrifices we offer the LORD our God would be detestable to the Egyptians. And if we offer sacrifices that are detestable in their eyes, will they not stone us?

Exo 8:27  We must take a three-day journey into the wilderness to offer sacrifices to the LORD our God, as he commands us."

Exo 8:28  Pharaoh said, "I will let you go to offer sacrifices to the LORD your God in the wilderness, but you must not go very far. Now pray for me."

Exo 9:1  Then the LORD said to Moses, "Go to Pharaoh and say to him, 'This is what the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, says: "Let my people go, so that they may worship me."

Exo 9:13  Then the LORD said to Moses, "Get up early in the morning, confront Pharaoh and say to him, 'This is what the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let my people go, so that they may worship me,

Exo 9:30  But I know that you and your officials still do not fear the LORD God."

Exo 10:3  So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said to him, "This is what the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, says: 'How long will you refuse to humble yourself before me? Let my people go, so that they may worship me.

Exo 10:7  Pharaoh's officials said to him, "How long will this man be a snare to us? Let the people go, so that they may worship the LORD their God. Do you not yet realize that Egypt is ruined?"

Exo 10:8  Then Moses and Aaron were brought back to Pharaoh. "Go, worship the LORD your God," he said. "But tell me who will be going."

Exo 10:16  Pharaoh quickly summoned Moses and Aaron and said, "I have sinned against the LORD your God and against you.

Exo 10:17  Now forgive my sin once more and pray to the LORD your God to take this deadly plague away from me."

Exo 10:25  But Moses said, "You must allow us to have sacrifices and burnt offerings to present to the LORD our God.

Exo 10:26  Our livestock too must go with us; not a hoof is to be left behind. We have to use some of them in worshiping the LORD our God, and until we get there we will not know what we are to use to worship the LORD."

Exo 13:17  When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them on the road through the Philistine country, though that was shorter. For God said, "If they face war, they might change their minds and return to Egypt."

Exo 13:18  So God led the people around by the desert road toward the Red Sea. The Israelites went up out of Egypt ready for battle.

Exo 13:19  Moses took the bones of Joseph with him because Joseph had made the Israelites swear an oath. He had said, "God will surely come to your aid, and then you must carry my bones up with you from this place."

Exo 14:19  Then the angel of God, who had been traveling in front of Israel's army, withdrew and went behind them. The pillar of cloud also moved from in front and stood behind them,

Exo 15:2  "The LORD is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father's God, and I will exalt him.

Exo 15:26  He said, "If you listen carefully to the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you."

Exo 16:12  "I have heard the grumbling of the Israelites. Tell them, 'At twilight you will eat meat, and in the morning you will be filled with bread. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God.'"

Exo 17:9  Moses said to Joshua, "Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands."

Exo 18:1  Now Jethro, the priest of Midian and father-in-law of Moses, heard of everything God had done for Moses and for his people Israel, and how the LORD had brought Israel out of Egypt.

Exo 18:4  and the other was named Eliezer, for he said, "My father's God was my helper; he saved me from the sword of Pharaoh."

Exo 18:5  Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, together with Moses' sons and wife, came to him in the wilderness, where he was camped near the mountain of God.

Exo 18:12  Then Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, brought a burnt offering and other sacrifices to God, and Aaron came with all the elders of Israel to eat a meal with Moses' father-in-law in the presence of God.

Exo 18:15  Moses answered him, "Because the people come to me to seek God's will.

Exo 18:16  Whenever they have a dispute, it is brought to me, and I decide between the parties and inform them of God's decrees and instructions."

Exo 18:19  Listen now to me and I will give you some advice, and may God be with you. You must be the people's representative before God and bring their disputes to him.

Exo 18:21  But select capable men from all the people--men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain--and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens.

Exo 18:23  If you do this and God so commands, you will be able to stand the strain, and all these people will go home satisfied."

Exo 19:3  Then Moses went up to God, and the LORD called to him from the mountain and said, "This is what you are to say to the descendants of Jacob and what you are to tell the people of Israel:

Exo 19:17  Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain.

Exo 19:19  As the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and the voice of God answered him.

Exo 20:1  And God spoke all these words:

Exo 20:2  "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

Exo 20:5  You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,

Exo 20:7  "You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

Exo 20:10  but the seventh day is a sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns.

Exo 20:12  "Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

Exo 20:19  and said to Moses, "Speak to us yourself and we will listen. But do not have God speak to us or we will die."

Exo 20:20  Moses said to the people, "Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning."

Exo 20:21  The people remained at a distance, while Moses approached the thick darkness where God was.

Exo 21:13  However, if it is not done intentionally, but God lets it happen, they are to flee to a place I will designate.

Exo 22:20  "Whoever sacrifices to any god other than the LORD must be destroyed.

Exo 22:28  "Do not blaspheme God or curse the ruler of your people.

Exo 23:19  "Bring the best of the firstfruits of your soil to the house of the LORD your God. "Do not cook a young goat in its mother's milk.

Exo 23:25  Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you,

Exo 24:10  and saw the God of Israel. Under his feet was something like a pavement made of lapis lazuli, as bright blue as the sky.

Exo 24:11  But God did not raise his hand against these leaders of the Israelites; they saw God, and they ate and drank.

Exo 24:13  Then Moses set out with Joshua his aide, and Moses went up on the mountain of God.

Exo 29:45  Then I will dwell among the Israelites and be their God.

Exo 29:46  They will know that I am the LORD their God, who brought them out of Egypt so that I might dwell among them. I am the LORD their God.

Exo 31:3  and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills--

Exo 31:18  When the LORD finished speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave him the two tablets of the covenant law, the tablets of stone inscribed by the finger of God.

Exo 32:11  But Moses sought the favor of the LORD his God. "LORD," he said, "why should your anger burn against your people, whom you brought out of Egypt with great power and a mighty hand?

Exo 32:16  The tablets were the work of God; the writing was the writing of God, engraved on the tablets.

Exo 32:27  Then he said to them, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'Each man strap a sword to his side. Go back and forth through the camp from one end to the other, each killing his brother and friend and neighbor.'"

Exo 34:6  And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, "The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness,

Exo 34:14  Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

Exo 34:23  Three times a year all your men are to appear before the Sovereign LORD, the God of Israel.

Exo 34:24  I will drive out nations before you and enlarge your territory, and no one will covet your land when you go up three times each year to appear before the LORD your God.

Exo 34:26  "Bring the best of the firstfruits of your soil to the house of the LORD your God. "Do not cook a young goat in its mother's milk."

Exo 35:31  and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills--

Lev 2:13  Season all your grain offerings with salt. Do not leave the salt of the covenant of your God out of your grain offerings; add salt to all your offerings.

Lev 4:22  "'When a leader sins unintentionally and does what is forbidden in any of the commands of the LORD his God, when he realizes his guilt

Lev 19:4  "'Do not turn to idols or make metal gods for yourselves. I am the LORD your God.

Lev 19:34  The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the LORD your God.

Lev 19:36  Use honest scales and honest weights, an honest ephah and an honest hin. I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt.

Lev 20:7  "'Consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am the LORD your God.

Lev 20:24  But I said to you, "You will possess their land; I will give it to you as an inheritance, a land flowing with milk and honey." I am the LORD your God, who has set you apart from the nations.

Lev 21:6  They must be holy to their God and must not profane the name of their God. Because they present the food offerings to the LORD, the food of their God, they are to be holy.

Lev 21:7  "'They must not marry women defiled by prostitution or divorced from their husbands, because priests are holy to their God.

Lev 21:8  Regard them as holy, because they offer up the food of your God. Consider them holy, because I the LORD am holy--I who make you holy.

Lev 21:12  nor leave the sanctuary of his God or desecrate it, because he has been dedicated by the anointing oil of his God. I am the LORD.

Lev 21:17  "Say to Aaron: 'For the generations to come none of your descendants who has a defect may come near to offer the food of his God.

Lev 21:21  No descendant of Aaron the priest who has any defect is to come near to present the food offerings to the LORD. He has a defect; he must not come near to offer the food of his God.

Lev 21:22  He may eat the most holy food of his God, as well as the holy food;

Lev 22:25  and you must not accept such animals from the hand of a foreigner and offer them as the food of your God. They will not be accepted on your behalf, because they are deformed and have defects.'"

Lev 22:33  and who brought you out of Egypt to be your God. I am the LORD."

Lev 23:14  You must not eat any bread, or roasted or new grain, until the very day you bring this offering to your God. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live.

Lev 23:22  "'When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the foreigner residing among you. I am the LORD your God.'"

Lev 23:28  Do not do any work on that day, because it is the Day of Atonement, when atonement is made for you before the LORD your God.

Lev 23:40  On the first day you are to take branches from luxuriant trees--from palms, willows and other leafy trees--and rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days.

Lev 23:43  so your descendants will know that I had the Israelites live in temporary shelters when I brought them out of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.'"

Lev 24:15  Say to the Israelites: 'Anyone who curses their God will be held responsible;

Lev 26:12  I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people.

Lev 26:13  I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt so that you would no longer be slaves to the Egyptians; I broke the bars of your yoke and enabled you to walk with heads held high.

Lev 26:44  Yet in spite of this, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them or abhor them so as to destroy them completely, breaking my covenant with them. I am the LORD their God.

Lev 26:45  But for their sake I will remember the covenant with their ancestors whom I brought out of Egypt in the sight of the nations to be their God. I am the LORD.'"

Num 6:7  Even if their own father or mother or brother or sister dies, they must not make themselves ceremonially unclean on account of them, because the symbol of their dedication to God is on their head.

Num 10:9  When you go into battle in your own land against an enemy who is oppressing you, sound a blast on the trumpets. Then you will be remembered by the LORD your God and rescued from your enemies.

Num 10:10  Also at your times of rejoicing--your appointed festivals and New Moon feasts--you are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, and they will be a memorial for you before your God. I am the LORD your God."

Num 12:13  So Moses cried out to the LORD, "Please, God, heal her!"

Num 15:40  Then you will remember to obey all my commands and will be consecrated to your God.

Num 15:41  I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt to be your God. I am the LORD your God.'"

Num 16:9  Isn't it enough for you that the God of Israel has separated you from the rest of the Israelite community and brought you near himself to do the work at the LORD's tabernacle and to stand before the community and minister to them?

Num 16:22  But Moses and Aaron fell facedown and cried out, "O God, the God who gives breath to all living things, will you be angry with the entire assembly when only one man sins?"

Num 21:5  they spoke against God and against Moses, and said, "Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? There is no bread! There is no water! And we detest this miserable food!"

Num 22:9  God came to Balaam and asked, "Who are these men with you?"

Num 22:10  Balaam said to God, "Balak son of Zippor, king of Moab, sent me this message:

Num 22:12  But God said to Balaam, "Do not go with them. You must not put a curse on those people, because they are blessed."

Num 22:18  But Balaam answered them, "Even if Balak gave me all the silver and gold in his palace, I could not do anything great or small to go beyond the command of the LORD my God.

Num 22:20  That night God came to Balaam and said, "Since these men have come to summon you, go with them, but do only what I tell you."

Num 22:22  But God was very angry when he went, and the angel of the LORD stood in the road to oppose him. Balaam was riding on his donkey, and his two servants were with him.

Num 22:38  "Well, I have come to you now," Balaam replied. "But I can't say whatever I please. I must speak only what God puts in my mouth."

Num 23:4  God met with him, and Balaam said, "I have prepared seven altars, and on each altar I have offered a bull and a ram."

Num 23:8  How can I curse those whom God has not cursed? How can I denounce those whom the LORD has not denounced?

Num 23:19  God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?

Num 23:21  "No misfortune is seen in Jacob, no misery observed in Israel. The LORD their God is with them; the shout of the King is among them.

Num 23:22  God brought them out of Egypt; they have the strength of a wild ox.

Num 23:23  There is no divination against Jacob, no evil omens against Israel. It will now be said of Jacob and of Israel, 'See what God has done!'

Num 23:27  Then Balak said to Balaam, "Come, let me take you to another place. Perhaps it will please God to let you curse them for me from there."

Num 24:2  When Balaam looked out and saw Israel encamped tribe by tribe, the Spirit of God came on him

Num 24:4  the prophecy of one who hears the words of God, who sees a vision from the Almighty, who falls prostrate, and whose eyes are opened:

Num 24:8  "God brought them out of Egypt; they have the strength of a wild ox. They devour hostile nations and break their bones in pieces; with their arrows they pierce them.

Num 24:16  the prophecy of one who hears the words of God, who has knowledge from the Most High, who sees a vision from the Almighty, who falls prostrate, and whose eyes are opened:

Num 24:23  Then he spoke his message: "Alas! Who can live when God does this?

Num 25:13  He and his descendants will have a covenant of a lasting priesthood, because he was zealous for the honor of his God and made atonement for the Israelites."

Num 27:16  "May the LORD, the God who gives breath to all living things, appoint someone over this community

Deu 1:6  The LORD our God said to us at Horeb, "You have stayed long enough at this mountain.

Deu 1:10  The LORD your God has increased your numbers so that today you are as numerous as the stars in the sky.

Deu 1:11  May the LORD, the God of your ancestors, increase you a thousand times and bless you as he has promised!

Deu 1:17  Do not show partiality in judging; hear both small and great alike. Do not be afraid of anyone, for judgment belongs to God. Bring me any case too hard for you, and I will hear it."

Deu 1:19  Then, as the LORD our God commanded us, we set out from Horeb and went toward the hill country of the Amorites through all that vast and dreadful wilderness that you have seen, and so we reached Kadesh Barnea.

Deu 1:20  Then I said to you, "You have reached the hill country of the Amorites, which the LORD our God is giving us.

Deu 1:21  See, the LORD your God has given you the land. Go up and take possession of it as the LORD, the God of your ancestors, told you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."

Deu 1:25  Taking with them some of the fruit of the land, they brought it down to us and reported, "It is a good land that the LORD our God is giving us."

Deu 1:26  But you were unwilling to go up; you rebelled against the command of the LORD your God.

Deu 1:30  The LORD your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes,

Deu 1:31  and in the wilderness. There you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a father carries his son, all the way you went until you reached this place."

Deu 1:32  In spite of this, you did not trust in the LORD your God,

Deu 1:41  Then you replied, "We have sinned against the LORD. We will go up and fight, as the LORD our God commanded us." So every one of you put on his weapons, thinking it easy to go up into the hill country.

Deu 2:7  The LORD your God has blessed you in all the work of your hands. He has watched over your journey through this vast wilderness. These forty years the LORD your God has been with you, and you have not lacked anything.

Deu 2:29  as the descendants of Esau, who live in Seir, and the Moabites, who live in Ar, did for us--until we cross the Jordan into the land the LORD our God is giving us."

Deu 2:30  But Sihon king of Heshbon refused to let us pass through. For the LORD your God had made his spirit stubborn and his heart obstinate in order to give him into your hands, as he has now done.

Deu 2:33  the LORD our God delivered him over to us and we struck him down, together with his sons and his whole army.

Deu 2:36  From Aroer on the rim of the Arnon Gorge, and from the town in the gorge, even as far as Gilead, not one town was too strong for us. The LORD our God gave us all of them.

Deu 2:37  But in accordance with the command of the LORD our God, you did not encroach on any of the land of the Ammonites, neither the land along the course of the Jabbok nor that around the towns in the hills.

Deu 3:3  So the LORD our God also gave into our hands Og king of Bashan and all his army. We struck them down, leaving no survivors.

Deu 3:18  I commanded you at that time: "The LORD your God has given you this land to take possession of it. But all your able-bodied men, armed for battle, must cross over ahead of the other Israelites.

Deu 3:20  until the LORD gives rest to your fellow Israelites as he has to you, and they too have taken over the land that the LORD your God is giving them across the Jordan. After that, each of you may go back to the possession I have given you."

Deu 3:21  At that time I commanded Joshua: "You have seen with your own eyes all that the LORD your God has done to these two kings. The LORD will do the same to all the kingdoms over there where you are going.

Deu 3:22  Do not be afraid of them; the LORD your God himself will fight for you."

Deu 3:24  "Sovereign LORD, you have begun to show to your servant your greatness and your strong hand. For what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do the deeds and mighty works you do?

Deu 4:1  Now, Israel, hear the decrees and laws I am about to teach you. Follow them so that you may live and may go in and take possession of the land the LORD, the God of your ancestors, is giving you.

Deu 4:2  Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the LORD your God that I give you.

Deu 4:3  You saw with your own eyes what the LORD did at Baal Peor. The LORD your God destroyed from among you everyone who followed the Baal of Peor,

Deu 4:4  but all of you who held fast to the LORD your God are still alive today.

Deu 4:5  See, I have taught you decrees and laws as the LORD my God commanded me, so that you may follow them in the land you are entering to take possession of it.

Deu 4:7  What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the LORD our God is near us whenever we pray to him?

Deu 4:10  Remember the day you stood before the LORD your God at Horeb, when he said to me, "Assemble the people before me to hear my words so that they may learn to revere me as long as they live in the land and may teach them to their children."

Deu 4:19  And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars--all the heavenly array--do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the LORD your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven.

Deu 4:21  The LORD was angry with me because of you, and he solemnly swore that I would not cross the Jordan and enter the good land the LORD your God is giving you as your inheritance.

Deu 4:23  Be careful not to forget the covenant of the LORD your God that he made with you; do not make for yourselves an idol in the form of anything the LORD your God has forbidden.

Deu 4:24  For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.

Deu 4:25  After you have had children and grandchildren and have lived in the land a long time--if you then become corrupt and make any kind of idol, doing evil in the eyes of the LORD your God and arousing his anger,

Deu 4:29  But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.

Deu 4:30  When you are in distress and all these things have happened to you, then in later days you will return to the LORD your God and obey him.

Deu 4:31  For the LORD your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your ancestors, which he confirmed to them by oath.

Deu 4:32  Ask now about the former days, long before your time, from the day God created human beings on the earth; ask from one end of the heavens to the other. Has anything so great as this ever happened, or has anything like it ever been heard of?

Deu 4:33  Has any other people heard the voice of God speaking out of fire, as you have, and lived?

Deu 4:34  Has any god ever tried to take for himself one nation out of another nation, by testings, by signs and wonders, by war, by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, or by great and awesome deeds, like all the things the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your very eyes?

Deu 4:35  You were shown these things so that you might know that the LORD is God; besides him there is no other.

Deu 4:39  Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the LORD is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other.

Deu 4:40  Keep his decrees and commands, which I am giving you today, so that it may go well with you and your children after you and that you may live long in the land the LORD your God gives you for all time.

Deu 5:2  The LORD our God made a covenant with us at Horeb.

Deu 5:6  "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

Deu 5:9  You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,

Deu 5:11  "You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

Deu 5:12  "Observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy, as the LORD your God has commanded you.

Deu 5:14  but the seventh day is a sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your ox, your donkey or any of your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns, so that your male and female servants may rest, as you do.

Deu 5:15  Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the LORD your God brought you out of there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore the LORD your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day.

Deu 5:16  "Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

Deu 5:24  And you said, "The LORD our God has shown us his glory and his majesty, and we have heard his voice from the fire. Today we have seen that a person can live even if God speaks with them.

Deu 5:25  But now, why should we die? This great fire will consume us, and we will die if we hear the voice of the LORD our God any longer.

Deu 5:26  For what mortal has ever heard the voice of the living God speaking out of fire, as we have, and survived?

Deu 5:27  Go near and listen to all that the LORD our God says. Then tell us whatever the LORD our God tells you. We will listen and obey."

Deu 5:32  So be careful to do what the LORD your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left.

Deu 5:33  Walk in obedience to all that the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.

Deu 6:1  These are the commands, decrees and laws the LORD your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess,

Deu 6:2  so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the LORD your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life.

Deu 6:3  Hear, Israel, and be careful to obey so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the LORD, the God of your ancestors, promised you.

Deu 6:4  Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.

Deu 6:5  Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

Deu 6:10  When the LORD your God brings you into the land he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give you--a land with large, flourishing cities you did not build,

Deu 6:13  Fear the LORD your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name.

Deu 6:15  for the LORD your God, who is among you, is a jealous God and his anger will burn against you, and he will destroy you from the face of the land.

Deu 6:16  Do not put the LORD your God to the test as you did at Massah.

Deu 6:17  Be sure to keep the commands of the LORD your God and the stipulations and decrees he has given you.

Deu 6:20  In the future, when your son asks you, "What is the meaning of the stipulations, decrees and laws the LORD our God has commanded you?"

Deu 6:24  The LORD commanded us to obey all these decrees and to fear the LORD our God, so that we might always prosper and be kept alive, as is the case today.

Deu 6:25  And if we are careful to obey all this law before the LORD our God, as he has commanded us, that will be our righteousness."

Deu 7:1  When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations--the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, seven nations larger and stronger than you--

Deu 7:2  and when the LORD your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them, then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.

Deu 7:6  For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession.

Deu 7:9  Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.

Deu 7:12  If you pay attention to these laws and are careful to follow them, then the LORD your God will keep his covenant of love with you, as he swore to your ancestors.

Deu 7:16  You must destroy all the peoples the LORD your God gives over to you. Do not look on them with pity and do not serve their gods, for that will be a snare to you.

Deu 7:18  But do not be afraid of them; remember well what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt.

Deu 7:19  You saw with your own eyes the great trials, the signs and wonders, the mighty hand and outstretched arm, with which the LORD your God brought you out. The LORD your God will do the same to all the peoples you now fear.

Deu 7:20  Moreover, the LORD your God will send the hornet among them until even the survivors who hide from you have perished.

Deu 7:21  Do not be terrified by them, for the LORD your God, who is among you, is a great and awesome God.

Deu 7:22  The LORD your God will drive out those nations before you, little by little. You will not be allowed to eliminate them all at once, or the wild animals will multiply around you.

Deu 7:23  But the LORD your God will deliver them over to you, throwing them into great confusion until they are destroyed.

Deu 7:25  The images of their gods you are to burn in the fire. Do not covet the silver and gold on them, and do not take it for yourselves, or you will be ensnared by it, for it is detestable to the LORD your God.

Deu 8:2  Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands.

Deu 8:5  Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the LORD your God disciplines you.

Deu 8:6  Observe the commands of the LORD your God, walking in obedience to him and revering him.

Deu 8:7  For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land--a land with brooks, streams, and deep springs gushing out into the valleys and hills;

Deu 8:10  When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you.

Deu 8:11  Be careful that you do not forget the LORD your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day.

Deu 8:14  then your heart will become proud and you will forget the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

Deu 8:18  But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.

Deu 8:19  If you ever forget the LORD your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed.

Deu 8:20  Like the nations the LORD destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the LORD your God.

Deu 9:3  But be assured today that the LORD your God is the one who goes across ahead of you like a devouring fire. He will destroy them; he will subdue them before you. And you will drive them out and annihilate them quickly, as the LORD has promised you.

Deu 9:4  After the LORD your God has driven them out before you, do not say to yourself, "The LORD has brought me here to take possession of this land because of my righteousness." No, it is on account of the wickedness of these nations that the LORD is going to drive them out before you.

Deu 9:5  It is not because of your righteousness or your integrity that you are going in to take possession of their land; but on account of the wickedness of these nations, the LORD your God will drive them out before you, to accomplish what he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Deu 9:6  Understand, then, that it is not because of your righteousness that the LORD your God is giving you this good land to possess, for you are a stiff-necked people.

Deu 9:7  Remember this and never forget how you aroused the anger of the LORD your God in the wilderness. From the day you left Egypt until you arrived here, you have been rebellious against the LORD.

Deu 9:10  The LORD gave me two stone tablets inscribed by the finger of God. On them were all the commandments the LORD proclaimed to you on the mountain out of the fire, on the day of the assembly.

Deu 9:16  When I looked, I saw that you had sinned against the LORD your God; you had made for yourselves an idol cast in the shape of a calf. You had turned aside quickly from the way that the LORD had commanded you.

Deu 9:23  And when the LORD sent you out from Kadesh Barnea, he said, "Go up and take possession of the land I have given you." But you rebelled against the command of the LORD your God. You did not trust him or obey him.

Deu 10:9  That is why the Levites have no share or inheritance among their fellow Israelites; the LORD is their inheritance, as the LORD your God told them.)

Deu 10:12  And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul,

Deu 10:14  To the LORD your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it.

Deu 10:17  For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes.

Deu 10:20  Fear the LORD your God and serve him. Hold fast to him and take your oaths in his name.

Deu 10:21  He is the one you praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.

Deu 10:22  Your ancestors who went down into Egypt were seventy in all, and now the LORD your God has made you as numerous as the stars in the sky.

Deu 11:1  Love the LORD your God and keep his requirements, his decrees, his laws and his commands always.

Deu 11:2  Remember today that your children were not the ones who saw and experienced the discipline of the LORD your God: his majesty, his mighty hand, his outstretched arm;

Deu 11:12  It is a land the LORD your God cares for; the eyes of the LORD your God are continually on it from the beginning of the year to its end.

Deu 11:13  So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today--to love the LORD your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul--

Deu 11:22  If you carefully observe all these commands I am giving you to follow--to love the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him and to hold fast to him--

Deu 11:25  No one will be able to stand against you. The LORD your God, as he promised you, will put the terror and fear of you on the whole land, wherever you go.

Deu 11:27  the blessing if you obey the commands of the LORD your God that I am giving you today;

Deu 11:28  the curse if you disobey the commands of the LORD your God and turn from the way that I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known.

Deu 11:29  When the LORD your God has brought you into the land you are entering to possess, you are to proclaim on Mount Gerizim the blessings, and on Mount Ebal the curses.

Deu 11:31  You are about to cross the Jordan to enter and take possession of the land the LORD your God is giving you. When you have taken it over and are living there,

Deu 12:1  These are the decrees and laws you must be careful to follow in the land that the LORD, the God of your ancestors, has given you to possess--as long as you live in the land.

Deu 12:4  You must not worship the LORD your God in their way.

Deu 12:5  But you are to seek the place the LORD your God will choose from among all your tribes to put his Name there for his dwelling. To that place you must go;

Deu 12:7  There, in the presence of the LORD your God, you and your families shall eat and shall rejoice in everything you have put your hand to, because the LORD your God has blessed you.

Deu 12:9  since you have not yet reached the resting place and the inheritance the LORD your God is giving you.

Deu 12:10  But you will cross the Jordan and settle in the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, and he will give you rest from all your enemies around you so that you will live in safety.

Deu 12:11  Then to the place the LORD your God will choose as a dwelling for his Name--there you are to bring everything I command you: your burnt offerings and sacrifices, your tithes and special gifts, and all the choice possessions you have vowed to the LORD.

Deu 12:12  And there rejoice before the LORD your God--you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, and the Levites from your towns who have no allotment or inheritance of their own.

Deu 12:15  Nevertheless, you may slaughter your animals in any of your towns and eat as much of the meat as you want, as if it were gazelle or deer, according to the blessing the LORD your God gives you. Both the ceremonially unclean and the clean may eat it.

Deu 12:18  Instead, you are to eat them in the presence of the LORD your God at the place the LORD your God will choose--you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, and the Levites from your towns--and you are to rejoice before the LORD your God in everything you put your hand to.

Deu 12:20  When the LORD your God has enlarged your territory as he promised you, and you crave meat and say, "I would like some meat," then you may eat as much of it as you want.

Deu 12:21  If the place where the LORD your God chooses to put his Name is too far away from you, you may slaughter animals from the herds and flocks the LORD has given you, as I have commanded you, and in your own towns you may eat as much of them as you want.

Deu 12:27  Present your burnt offerings on the altar of the LORD your God, both the meat and the blood. The blood of your sacrifices must be poured beside the altar of the LORD your God, but you may eat the meat.

Deu 12:28  Be careful to obey all these regulations I am giving you, so that it may always go well with you and your children after you, because you will be doing what is good and right in the eyes of the LORD your God.

Deu 12:29  The LORD your God will cut off before you the nations you are about to invade and dispossess. But when you have driven them out and settled in their land,

Deu 12:31  You must not worship the LORD your God in their way, because in worshiping their gods, they do all kinds of detestable things the LORD hates. They even burn their sons and daughters in the fire as sacrifices to their gods.

Deu 13:3  you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. The LORD your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul.

Deu 13:4  It is the LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him.

Deu 13:5  That prophet or dreamer must be put to death for inciting rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from the land of slavery. That prophet or dreamer tried to turn you from the way the LORD your God commanded you to follow. You must purge the evil from among you.

Deu 13:10  Stone them to death, because they tried to turn you away from the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

Deu 13:12  If you hear it said about one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you to live in

Deu 13:16  You are to gather all the plunder of the town into the middle of the public square and completely burn the town and all its plunder as a whole burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town is to remain a ruin forever, never to be rebuilt,

Deu 13:18  because you obey the LORD your God by keeping all his commands that I am giving you today and doing what is right in his eyes.

Deu 14:1  You are the children of the LORD your God. Do not cut yourselves or shave the front of your heads for the dead,

Deu 14:2  for you are a people holy to the LORD your God. Out of all the peoples on the face of the earth, the LORD has chosen you to be his treasured possession.

Deu 14:21  Do not eat anything you find already dead. You may give it to the foreigner residing in any of your towns, and they may eat it, or you may sell it to any other foreigner. But you are a people holy to the LORD your God. Do not cook a young goat in its mother's milk.

Deu 14:23  Eat the tithe of your grain, new wine and olive oil, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks in the presence of the LORD your God at the place he will choose as a dwelling for his Name, so that you may learn to revere the LORD your God always.

Deu 14:24  But if that place is too distant and you have been blessed by the LORD your God and cannot carry your tithe (because the place where the LORD will choose to put his Name is so far away),

Deu 14:25  then exchange your tithe for silver, and take the silver with you and go to the place the LORD your God will choose.

Deu 14:26  Use the silver to buy whatever you like: cattle, sheep, wine or other fermented drink, or anything you wish. Then you and your household shall eat there in the presence of the LORD your God and rejoice.

Deu 14:29  so that the Levites (who have no allotment or inheritance of their own) and the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns may come and eat and be satisfied, and so that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.

Deu 15:4  However, there need be no poor people among you, for in the land the LORD your God is giving you to possess as your inheritance, he will richly bless you,

Deu 15:5  if only you fully obey the LORD your God and are careful to follow all these commands I am giving you today.

Deu 15:6  For the LORD your God will bless you as he has promised, and you will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. You will rule over many nations but none will rule over you.

Deu 15:7  If anyone is poor among your fellow Israelites in any of the towns of the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward them.

Deu 15:10  Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.

Deu 15:14  Supply them liberally from your flock, your threshing floor and your winepress. Give to them as the LORD your God has blessed you.

Deu 15:15  Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and the LORD your God redeemed you. That is why I give you this command today.

Deu 15:18  Do not consider it a hardship to set your servant free, because their service to you these six years has been worth twice as much as that of a hired hand. And the LORD your God will bless you in everything you do.

Deu 15:19  Set apart for the LORD your God every firstborn male of your herds and flocks. Do not put the firstborn of your cows to work, and do not shear the firstborn of your sheep.

Deu 15:20  Each year you and your family are to eat them in the presence of the LORD your God at the place he will choose.

Deu 15:21  If an animal has a defect, is lame or blind, or has any serious flaw, you must not sacrifice it to the LORD your God.

Deu 16:1  Observe the month of Aviv and celebrate the Passover of the LORD your God, because in the month of Aviv he brought you out of Egypt by night.

Deu 16:2  Sacrifice as the Passover to the LORD your God an animal from your flock or herd at the place the LORD will choose as a dwelling for his Name.

Deu 16:5  You must not sacrifice the Passover in any town the LORD your God gives you

Deu 16:7  Roast it and eat it at the place the LORD your God will choose. Then in the morning return to your tents.

Deu 16:8  For six days eat unleavened bread and on the seventh day hold an assembly to the LORD your God and do no work.

Deu 16:10  Then celebrate the Festival of Weeks to the LORD your God by giving a freewill offering in proportion to the blessings the LORD your God has given you.

Deu 16:11  And rejoice before the LORD your God at the place he will choose as a dwelling for his Name--you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, the Levites in your towns, and the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows living among you.

Deu 16:15  For seven days celebrate the festival to the LORD your God at the place the LORD will choose. For the LORD your God will bless you in all your harvest and in all the work of your hands, and your joy will be complete.

Deu 16:16  Three times a year all your men must appear before the LORD your God at the place he will choose: at the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the Festival of Weeks and the Festival of Tabernacles. No one should appear before the LORD empty-handed:

Deu 16:17  Each of you must bring a gift in proportion to the way the LORD your God has blessed you.

Deu 16:18  Appoint judges and officials for each of your tribes in every town the LORD your God is giving you, and they shall judge the people fairly.

Deu 16:20  Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the LORD your God is giving you.

Deu 16:21  Do not set up any wooden Asherah pole beside the altar you build to the LORD your God,

Deu 16:22  and do not erect a sacred stone, for these the LORD your God hates.

Deu 17:1  Do not sacrifice to the LORD your God an ox or a sheep that has any defect or flaw in it, for that would be detestable to him.

Deu 17:2  If a man or woman living among you in one of the towns the LORD gives you is found doing evil in the eyes of the LORD your God in violation of his covenant,

Deu 17:8  If cases come before your courts that are too difficult for you to judge--whether bloodshed, lawsuits or assaults--take them to the place the LORD your God will choose.

Deu 17:12  Anyone who shows contempt for the judge or for the priest who stands ministering there to the LORD your God is to be put to death. You must purge the evil from Israel.

Deu 17:14  When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you and have taken possession of it and settled in it, and you say, "Let us set a king over us like all the nations around us,"

Deu 17:15  be sure to appoint over you a king the LORD your God chooses. He must be from among your fellow Israelites. Do not place a foreigner over you, one who is not an Israelite.

Deu 17:19  It is to be with him, and he is to read it all the days of his life so that he may learn to revere the LORD his God and follow carefully all the words of this law and these decrees

Deu 18:5  for the LORD your God has chosen them and their descendants out of all your tribes to stand and minister in the LORD's name always.

Deu 18:7  he may minister in the name of the LORD his God like all his fellow Levites who serve there in the presence of the LORD.

Deu 18:9  When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there.

Deu 18:12  Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD; because of these same detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you.

Deu 18:13  You must be blameless before the LORD your God.

Deu 18:14  The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the LORD your God has not permitted you to do so.

Deu 18:15  The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him.

Deu 18:16  For this is what you asked of the LORD your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said, "Let us not hear the voice of the LORD our God nor see this great fire anymore, or we will die."

Deu 19:1  When the LORD your God has destroyed the nations whose land he is giving you, and when you have driven them out and settled in their towns and houses,

Deu 19:2  then set aside for yourselves three cities in the land the LORD your God is giving you to possess.

Deu 19:3  Determine the distances involved and divide into three parts the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, so that a person who kills someone may flee for refuge to one of these cities.

Deu 19:8  If the LORD your God enlarges your territory, as he promised on oath to your ancestors, and gives you the whole land he promised them,

Deu 19:9  because you carefully follow all these laws I command you today--to love the LORD your God and to walk always in obedience to him--then you are to set aside three more cities.

Deu 19:10  Do this so that innocent blood will not be shed in your land, which the LORD your God is giving you as your inheritance, and so that you will not be guilty of bloodshed.

Deu 19:14  Do not move your neighbor's boundary stone set up by your predecessors in the inheritance you receive in the land the LORD your God is giving you to possess.

Deu 20:1  When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you.

Deu 20:4  For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory."

Deu 20:13  When the LORD your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it.

Deu 20:14  As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. And you may use the plunder the LORD your God gives you from your enemies.

Deu 20:16  However, in the cities of the nations the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes.

Deu 20:17  Completely destroy them--the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites--as the LORD your God has commanded you.

Deu 20:18  Otherwise, they will teach you to follow all the detestable things they do in worshiping their gods, and you will sin against the LORD your God.

Deu 21:1  If someone is found slain, lying in a field in the land the LORD your God is giving you to possess, and it is not known who the killer was,

Deu 21:5  The Levitical priests shall step forward, for the LORD your God has chosen them to minister and to pronounce blessings in the name of the LORD and to decide all cases of dispute and assault.

Deu 21:10  When you go to war against your enemies and the LORD your God delivers them into your hands and you take captives,

Deu 21:23  you must not leave the body hanging on the pole overnight. Be sure to bury it that same day, because anyone who is hung on a pole is under God's curse. You must not desecrate the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance.

Deu 22:5  A woman must not wear men's clothing, nor a man wear women's clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this.

Deu 23:5  However, the LORD your God would not listen to Balaam but turned the curse into a blessing for you, because the LORD your God loves you.

Deu 23:14  For the LORD your God moves about in your camp to protect you and to deliver your enemies to you. Your camp must be holy, so that he will not see among you anything indecent and turn away from you.

Deu 23:18  You must not bring the earnings of a female prostitute or of a male prostitute into the house of the LORD your God to pay any vow, because the LORD your God detests them both.

Deu 23:20  You may charge a foreigner interest, but not a fellow Israelite, so that the LORD your God may bless you in everything you put your hand to in the land you are entering to possess.

Deu 23:21  If you make a vow to the LORD your God, do not be slow to pay it, for the LORD your God will certainly demand it of you and you will be guilty of sin.

Deu 23:23  Whatever your lips utter you must be sure to do, because you made your vow freely to the LORD your God with your own mouth.

Deu 24:4  then her first husband, who divorced her, is not allowed to marry her again after she has been defiled. That would be detestable in the eyes of the LORD. Do not bring sin upon the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance.

Deu 24:9  Remember what the LORD your God did to Miriam along the way after you came out of Egypt.

Deu 24:13  Return their cloak by sunset so that your neighbor may sleep in it. Then they will thank you, and it will be regarded as a righteous act in the sight of the LORD your God.

Deu 24:18  Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and the LORD your God redeemed you from there. That is why I command you to do this.

Deu 24:19  When you are harvesting in your field and you overlook a sheaf, do not go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow, so that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.

Deu 25:15  You must have accurate and honest weights and measures, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

Deu 25:16  For the LORD your God detests anyone who does these things, anyone who deals dishonestly.

Deu 25:18  When you were weary and worn out, they met you on your journey and attacked all who were lagging behind; they had no fear of God.

Deu 25:19  When the LORD your God gives you rest from all the enemies around you in the land he is giving you to possess as an inheritance, you shall blot out the name of Amalek from under heaven. Do not forget!

Deu 26:1  When you have entered the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance and have taken possession of it and settled in it,

Deu 26:2  take some of the firstfruits of all that you produce from the soil of the land the LORD your God is giving you and put them in a basket. Then go to the place the LORD your God will choose as a dwelling for his Name

Deu 26:3  and say to the priest in office at the time, "I declare today to the LORD your God that I have come to the land the LORD swore to our ancestors to give us."

Deu 26:4  The priest shall take the basket from your hands and set it down in front of the altar of the LORD your God.

Deu 26:5  Then you shall declare before the LORD your God: "My father was a wandering Aramean, and he went down into Egypt with a few people and lived there and became a great nation, powerful and numerous.

Deu 26:7  Then we cried out to the LORD, the God of our ancestors, and the LORD heard our voice and saw our misery, toil and oppression.

Deu 26:10  and now I bring the firstfruits of the soil that you, LORD, have given me." Place the basket before the LORD your God and bow down before him.

Deu 26:11  Then you and the Levites and the foreigners residing among you shall rejoice in all the good things the LORD your God has given to you and your household.

Deu 26:13  Then say to the LORD your God: "I have removed from my house the sacred portion and have given it to the Levite, the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow, according to all you commanded. I have not turned aside from your commands nor have I forgotten any of them.

Deu 26:14  I have not eaten any of the sacred portion while I was in mourning, nor have I removed any of it while I was unclean, nor have I offered any of it to the dead. I have obeyed the LORD my God; I have done everything you commanded me.

Deu 26:16  The LORD your God commands you this day to follow these decrees and laws; carefully observe them with all your heart and with all your soul.

Deu 26:17  You have declared this day that the LORD is your God and that you will walk in obedience to him, that you will keep his decrees, commands and laws--that you will listen to him.

Deu 26:19  He has declared that he will set you in praise, fame and honor high above all the nations he has made and that you will be a people holy to the LORD your God, as he promised.

Deu 27:2  When you have crossed the Jordan into the land the LORD your God is giving you, set up some large stones and coat them with plaster.

Deu 27:3  Write on them all the words of this law when you have crossed over to enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the LORD, the God of your ancestors, promised you.

Deu 27:5  Build there an altar to the LORD your God, an altar of stones. Do not use any iron tool on them.

Deu 27:6  Build the altar of the LORD your God with fieldstones and offer burnt offerings on it to the LORD your God.

Deu 27:7  Sacrifice fellowship offerings there, eating them and rejoicing in the presence of the LORD your God.

Deu 27:9  Then Moses and the Levitical priests said to all Israel, "Be silent, Israel, and listen! You have now become the people of the LORD your God.

Deu 27:10  Obey the LORD your God and follow his commands and decrees that I give you today."

Deu 28:1  If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.

Deu 28:2  All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God:

Deu 28:8  The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.

Deu 28:9  The LORD will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the LORD your God and walk in obedience to him.

Deu 28:13  The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.

Deu 28:15  However, if you do not obey the LORD your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you:

Deu 28:45  All these curses will come on you. They will pursue you and overtake you until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the LORD your God and observe the commands and decrees he gave you.

Deu 28:47  Because you did not serve the LORD your God joyfully and gladly in the time of prosperity,

Deu 28:52  They will lay siege to all the cities throughout your land until the high fortified walls in which you trust fall down. They will besiege all the cities throughout the land the LORD your God is giving you.

Deu 28:53  Because of the suffering that your enemy will inflict on you during the siege, you will eat the fruit of the womb, the flesh of the sons and daughters the LORD your God has given you.

Deu 28:58  If you do not carefully follow all the words of this law, which are written in this book, and do not revere this glorious and awesome name--the LORD your God--

Deu 28:62  You who were as numerous as the stars in the sky will be left but few in number, because you did not obey the LORD your God.

Deu 29:6  You ate no bread and drank no wine or other fermented drink. I did this so that you might know that I am the LORD your God."

Deu 29:10  All of you are standing today in the presence of the LORD your God--your leaders and chief men, your elders and officials, and all the other men of Israel,

Deu 29:12  You are standing here in order to enter into a covenant with the LORD your God, a covenant the LORD is making with you this day and sealing with an oath,

Deu 29:13  to confirm you this day as his people, that he may be your God as he promised you and as he swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Deu 29:15  who are standing here with us today in the presence of the LORD our God but also with those who are not here today.

Deu 29:18  Make sure there is no man or woman, clan or tribe among you today whose heart turns away from the LORD our God to go and worship the gods of those nations; make sure there is no root among you that produces such bitter poison.

Deu 29:25  And the answer will be: "It is because this people abandoned the covenant of the LORD, the God of their ancestors, the covenant he made with them when he brought them out of Egypt.

Deu 29:29  The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.

Deu 30:1  When all these blessings and curses I have set before you come on you and you take them to heart wherever the LORD your God disperses you among the nations,

Deu 30:2  and when you and your children return to the LORD your God and obey him with all your heart and with all your soul according to everything I command you today,

Deu 30:3  then the LORD your God will restore your fortunes and have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you.

Deu 30:4  Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens, from there the LORD your God will gather you and bring you back.

Deu 30:6  The LORD your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, so that you may love him with all your heart and with all your soul, and live.

Deu 30:7  The LORD your God will put all these curses on your enemies who hate and persecute you.

Deu 30:9  Then the LORD your God will make you most prosperous in all the work of your hands and in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your land. The LORD will again delight in you and make you prosperous, just as he delighted in your ancestors,

Deu 30:10  if you obey the LORD your God and keep his commands and decrees that are written in this Book of the Law and turn to the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

Deu 30:16  For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.

Deu 30:20  and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Deu 31:3  The LORD your God himself will cross over ahead of you. He will destroy these nations before you, and you will take possession of their land. Joshua also will cross over ahead of you, as the LORD said.

Deu 31:6  Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."

Deu 31:11  when all Israel comes to appear before the LORD your God at the place he will choose, you shall read this law before them in their hearing.

Deu 31:12  Assemble the people--men, women and children, and the foreigners residing in your towns--so they can listen and learn to fear the LORD your God and follow carefully all the words of this law.

Deu 31:13  Their children, who do not know this law, must hear it and learn to fear the LORD your God as long as you live in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess."

Deu 31:17  And in that day I will become angry with them and forsake them; I will hide my face from them, and they will be destroyed. Many disasters and calamities will come on them, and in that day they will ask, 'Have not these disasters come on us because our God is not with us?'

Deu 31:26  "Take this Book of the Law and place it beside the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God. There it will remain as a witness against you.

Deu 32:3  I will proclaim the name of the LORD. Oh, praise the greatness of our God!

Deu 32:4  He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.

Deu 32:12  The LORD alone led him; no foreign god was with him.

Deu 32:15  Jeshurun grew fat and kicked; filled with food, they became heavy and sleek. They abandoned the God who made them and rejected the Rock their Savior.

Deu 32:17  They sacrificed to false gods, which are not God-- gods they had not known, gods that recently appeared, gods your ancestors did not fear.

Deu 32:18  You deserted the Rock, who fathered you; you forgot the God who gave you birth.

Deu 32:21  They made me jealous by what is no god and angered me with their worthless idols. I will make them envious by those who are not a people; I will make them angry by a nation that has no understanding.

Deu 32:39  "See now that I myself am he! There is no god besides me. I put to death and I bring to life, I have wounded and I will heal, and no one can deliver out of my hand.

Deu 33:1  This is the blessing that Moses the man of God pronounced on the Israelites before his death.

Deu 33:26  "There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, who rides across the heavens to help you and on the clouds in his majesty.

Deu 33:27  The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. He will drive out your enemies before you, saying, 'Destroy them!'

Jos 1:9  Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."

Jos 1:11  "Go through the camp and tell the people, 'Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the LORD your God is giving you for your own.'"

Jos 1:13  "Remember the command that Moses the servant of the LORD gave you after he said, 'The LORD your God will give you rest by giving you this land.'

Jos 1:15  until the LORD gives them rest, as he has done for you, and until they too have taken possession of the land the LORD your God is giving them. After that, you may go back and occupy your own land, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you east of the Jordan toward the sunrise."

Jos 1:17  Just as we fully obeyed Moses, so we will obey you. Only may the LORD your God be with you as he was with Moses.

Jos 2:11  When we heard of it, our hearts melted in fear and everyone's courage failed because of you, for the LORD your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below.

Jos 3:3  giving orders to the people: "When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the Levitical priests carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it.

Jos 3:9  Joshua said to the Israelites, "Come here and listen to the words of the LORD your God.

Jos 3:10  This is how you will know that the living God is among you and that he will certainly drive out before you the Canaanites, Hittites, Hivites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Amorites and Jebusites.

Jos 4:5  and said to them, "Go over before the ark of the LORD your God into the middle of the Jordan. Each of you is to take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the Israelites,

Jos 4:23  For the LORD your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. The LORD your God did to the Jordan what he had done to the Red Sea when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over.

Jos 4:24  He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the LORD is powerful and so that you might always fear the LORD your God."

Jos 7:13  "Go, consecrate the people. Tell them, 'Consecrate yourselves in preparation for tomorrow; for this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: There are devoted things among you, Israel. You cannot stand against your enemies until you remove them.

Jos 7:19  Then Joshua said to Achan, "My son, give glory to the LORD, the God of Israel, and honor him. Tell me what you have done; do not hide it from me."

Jos 7:20  Achan replied, "It is true! I have sinned against the LORD, the God of Israel. This is what I have done:

Jos 8:7  you are to rise up from ambush and take the city. The LORD your God will give it into your hand.

Jos 8:30  Then Joshua built on Mount Ebal an altar to the LORD, the God of Israel,

Jos 9:9  They answered: "Your servants have come from a very distant country because of the fame of the LORD your God. For we have heard reports of him: all that he did in Egypt,

Jos 9:18  But the Israelites did not attack them, because the leaders of the assembly had sworn an oath to them by the LORD, the God of Israel. The whole assembly grumbled against the leaders,

Jos 9:19  but all the leaders answered, "We have given them our oath by the LORD, the God of Israel, and we cannot touch them now.

Jos 9:20  This is what we will do to them: We will let them live, so that God's wrath will not fall on us for breaking the oath we swore to them."

Jos 9:23  You are now under a curse: You will never be released from service as woodcutters and water carriers for the house of my God."

Jos 9:24  They answered Joshua, "Your servants were clearly told how the LORD your God had commanded his servant Moses to give you the whole land and to wipe out all its inhabitants from before you. So we feared for our lives because of you, and that is why we did this.

Jos 10:19  But don't stop; pursue your enemies! Attack them from the rear and don't let them reach their cities, for the LORD your God has given them into your hand."

Jos 10:40  So Joshua subdued the whole region, including the hill country, the Negev, the western foothills and the mountain slopes, together with all their kings. He left no survivors. He totally destroyed all who breathed, just as the LORD, the God of Israel, had commanded.

Jos 10:42  All these kings and their lands Joshua conquered in one campaign, because the LORD, the God of Israel, fought for Israel.

Jos 13:14  But to the tribe of Levi he gave no inheritance, since the food offerings presented to the LORD, the God of Israel, are their inheritance, as he promised them.

Jos 13:33  But to the tribe of Levi, Moses had given no inheritance; the LORD, the God of Israel, is their inheritance, as he promised them.

Jos 14:6  Now the people of Judah approached Joshua at Gilgal, and Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite said to him, "You know what the LORD said to Moses the man of God at Kadesh Barnea about you and me.

Jos 14:8  but my fellow Israelites who went up with me made the hearts of the people melt in fear. I, however, followed the LORD my God wholeheartedly.

Jos 14:9  So on that day Moses swore to me, 'The land on which your feet have walked will be your inheritance and that of your children forever, because you have followed the LORD my God wholeheartedly.'

Jos 14:14  So Hebron has belonged to Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite ever since, because he followed the LORD, the God of Israel, wholeheartedly.

Jos 18:3  So Joshua said to the Israelites: "How long will you wait before you begin to take possession of the land that the LORD, the God of your ancestors, has given you?

Jos 18:6  After you have written descriptions of the seven parts of the land, bring them here to me and I will cast lots for you in the presence of the LORD our God.

Jos 22:3  For a long time now--to this very day--you have not deserted your fellow Israelites but have carried out the mission the LORD your God gave you.

Jos 22:4  Now that the LORD your God has given them rest as he promised, return to your homes in the land that Moses the servant of the LORD gave you on the other side of the Jordan.

Jos 22:5  But be very careful to keep the commandment and the law that Moses the servant of the LORD gave you: to love the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him, to keep his commands, to hold fast to him and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul."

Jos 22:16  "The whole assembly of the LORD says: 'How could you break faith with the God of Israel like this? How could you turn away from the LORD and build yourselves an altar in rebellion against him now?

Jos 22:19  If the land you possess is defiled, come over to the LORD's land, where the LORD's tabernacle stands, and share the land with us. But do not rebel against the LORD or against us by building an altar for yourselves, other than the altar of the LORD our God.

Jos 22:22  "The Mighty One, God, the LORD! The Mighty One, God, the LORD! He knows! And let Israel know! If this has been in rebellion or disobedience to the LORD, do not spare us this day.

Jos 22:24  "No! We did it for fear that some day your descendants might say to ours, 'What do you have to do with the LORD, the God of Israel?

Jos 22:29  "Far be it from us to rebel against the LORD and turn away from him today by building an altar for burnt offerings, grain offerings and sacrifices, other than the altar of the LORD our God that stands before his tabernacle."

Jos 22:33  They were glad to hear the report and praised God. And they talked no more about going to war against them to devastate the country where the Reubenites and the Gadites lived.

Jos 22:34  And the Reubenites and the Gadites gave the altar this name: A Witness Between Us--that the LORD is God.

Jos 23:3  You yourselves have seen everything the LORD your God has done to all these nations for your sake; it was the LORD your God who fought for you.

Jos 23:5  The LORD your God himself will push them out for your sake. He will drive them out before you, and you will take possession of their land, as the LORD your God promised you.

Jos 23:8  But you are to hold fast to the LORD your God, as you have until now.

Jos 23:10  One of you routs a thousand, because the LORD your God fights for you, just as he promised.

Jos 23:11  So be very careful to love the LORD your God.

Jos 23:13  then you may be sure that the LORD your God will no longer drive out these nations before you. Instead, they will become snares and traps for you, whips on your backs and thorns in your eyes, until you perish from this good land, which the LORD your God has given you.

Jos 23:14  "Now I am about to go the way of all the earth. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the LORD your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed.

Jos 23:15  But just as all the good things the LORD your God has promised you have come to you, so he will bring on you all the evil things he has threatened, until the LORD your God has destroyed you from this good land he has given you.

Jos 23:16  If you violate the covenant of the LORD your God, which he commanded you, and go and serve other gods and bow down to them, the LORD's anger will burn against you, and you will quickly perish from the good land he has given you."

Jos 24:1  Then Joshua assembled all the tribes of Israel at Shechem. He summoned the elders, leaders, judges and officials of Israel, and they presented themselves before God.

Jos 24:2  Joshua said to all the people, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'Long ago your ancestors, including Terah the father of Abraham and Nahor, lived beyond the Euphrates River and worshiped other gods.

Jos 24:17  It was the LORD our God himself who brought us and our parents up out of Egypt, from that land of slavery, and performed those great signs before our eyes. He protected us on our entire journey and among all the nations through which we traveled.

Jos 24:18  And the LORD drove out before us all the nations, including the Amorites, who lived in the land. We too will serve the LORD, because he is our God."

Jos 24:19  Joshua said to the people, "You are not able to serve the LORD. He is a holy God; he is a jealous God. He will not forgive your rebellion and your sins.

Jos 24:23  "Now then," said Joshua, "throw away the foreign gods that are among you and yield your hearts to the LORD, the God of Israel."

Jos 24:24  And the people said to Joshua, "We will serve the LORD our God and obey him."

Jos 24:26  And Joshua recorded these things in the Book of the Law of God. Then he took a large stone and set it up there under the oak near the holy place of the LORD.

Jos 24:27  "See!" he said to all the people. "This stone will be a witness against us. It has heard all the words the LORD has said to us. It will be a witness against you if you are untrue to your God."

Jdg 1:7  Then Adoni-Bezek said, "Seventy kings with their thumbs and big toes cut off have picked up scraps under my table. Now God has paid me back for what I did to them." They brought him to Jerusalem, and he died there.

Jdg 2:12  They forsook the LORD, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They followed and worshiped various gods of the peoples around them. They aroused the LORD's anger

Jdg 3:7  The Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD; they forgot the LORD their God and served the Baals and the Asherahs.

Jdg 3:20  Ehud then approached him while he was sitting alone in the upper room of his palace and said, "I have a message from God for you." As the king rose from his seat,

Jdg 4:6  She sent for Barak son of Abinoam from Kedesh in Naphtali and said to him, "The LORD, the God of Israel, commands you: 'Go, take with you ten thousand men of Naphtali and Zebulun and lead them up to Mount Tabor.

Jdg 4:23  On that day God subdued Jabin king of Canaan before the Israelites.

Jdg 5:3  "Hear this, you kings! Listen, you rulers! I, even I, will sing to the LORD; I will praise the LORD, the God of Israel, in song.

Jdg 5:5  The mountains quaked before the LORD, the One of Sinai, before the LORD, the God of Israel.

Jdg 5:8  God chose new leaders when war came to the city gates, but not a shield or spear was seen among forty thousand in Israel.

Jdg 6:8  he sent them a prophet, who said, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I brought you up out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

Jdg 6:10  I said to you, 'I am the LORD your God; do not worship the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you live.' But you have not listened to me."

Jdg 6:20  The angel of God said to him, "Take the meat and the unleavened bread, place them on this rock, and pour out the broth." And Gideon did so.

Jdg 6:26  Then build a proper kind of altar to the LORD your God on the top of this height. Using the wood of the Asherah pole that you cut down, offer the second bull as a burnt offering."

Jdg 6:31  But Joash replied to the hostile crowd around him, "Are you going to plead Baal's cause? Are you trying to save him? Whoever fights for him shall be put to death by morning! If Baal really is a god, he can defend himself when someone breaks down his altar."

Jdg 6:36  Gideon said to God, "If you will save Israel by my hand as you have promised--

Jdg 6:39  Then Gideon said to God, "Do not be angry with me. Let me make just one more request. Allow me one more test with the fleece, but this time make the fleece dry and let the ground be covered with dew."

Jdg 6:40  That night God did so. Only the fleece was dry; all the ground was covered with dew.

Jdg 7:14  His friend responded, "This can be nothing other than the sword of Gideon son of Joash, the Israelite. God has given the Midianites and the whole camp into his hands."

Jdg 8:3  God gave Oreb and Zeeb, the Midianite leaders, into your hands. What was I able to do compared to you?" At this, their resentment against him subsided.

Jdg 8:33  No sooner had Gideon died than the Israelites again prostituted themselves to the Baals. They set up Baal-Berith as their god

Jdg 8:34  and did not remember the LORD their God, who had rescued them from the hands of all their enemies on every side.

Jdg 9:7  When Jotham was told about this, he climbed up on the top of Mount Gerizim and shouted to them, "Listen to me, citizens of Shechem, so that God may listen to you.

Jdg 9:23  God stirred up animosity between Abimelek and the citizens of Shechem so that they acted treacherously against Abimelek.

Jdg 9:24  God did this in order that the crime against Jerub-Baal's seventy sons, the shedding of their blood, might be avenged on their brother Abimelek and on the citizens of Shechem, who had helped him murder his brothers.

Jdg 9:27  After they had gone out into the fields and gathered the grapes and trodden them, they held a festival in the temple of their god. While they were eating and drinking, they cursed Abimelek.

Jdg 9:56  Thus God repaid the wickedness that Abimelek had done to his father by murdering his seventy brothers.

Jdg 9:57  God also made the people of Shechem pay for all their wickedness. The curse of Jotham son of Jerub-Baal came on them.

Jdg 10:10  Then the Israelites cried out to the LORD, "We have sinned against you, forsaking our God and serving the Baals."

Jdg 11:21  "Then the LORD, the God of Israel, gave Sihon and his whole army into Israel's hands, and they defeated them. Israel took over all the land of the Amorites who lived in that country,

Jdg 11:23  "Now since the LORD, the God of Israel, has driven the Amorites out before his people Israel, what right have you to take it over?

Jdg 11:24  Will you not take what your god Chemosh gives you? Likewise, whatever the LORD our God has given us, we will possess.

Jdg 13:5  You will become pregnant and have a son whose head is never to be touched by a razor because the boy is to be a Nazirite, dedicated to God from the womb. He will take the lead in delivering Israel from the hands of the Philistines."

Jdg 13:6  Then the woman went to her husband and told him, "A man of God came to me. He looked like an angel of God, very awesome. I didn't ask him where he came from, and he didn't tell me his name.

Jdg 13:7  But he said to me, 'You will become pregnant and have a son. Now then, drink no wine or other fermented drink and do not eat anything unclean, because the boy will be a Nazirite of God from the womb until the day of his death.'"

Jdg 13:8  Then Manoah prayed to the LORD: "Pardon your servant, Lord. I beg you to let the man of God you sent to us come again to teach us how to bring up the boy who is to be born."

Jdg 13:9  God heard Manoah, and the angel of God came again to the woman while she was out in the field; but her husband Manoah was not with her.

Jdg 13:22  "We are doomed to die!" he said to his wife. "We have seen God!"

Jdg 15:19  Then God opened up the hollow place in Lehi, and water came out of it. When Samson drank, his strength returned and he revived. So the spring was called En Hakkore, and it is still there in Lehi.

Jdg 16:17  So he told her everything. "No razor has ever been used on my head," he said, "because I have been a Nazirite dedicated to God from my mother's womb. If my head were shaved, my strength would leave me, and I would become as weak as any other man."

Jdg 16:23  Now the rulers of the Philistines assembled to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god and to celebrate, saying, "Our god has delivered Samson, our enemy, into our hands."

Jdg 16:24  When the people saw him, they praised their god, saying, "Our god has delivered our enemy into our hands, the one who laid waste our land and multiplied our slain."

Jdg 16:28  Then Samson prayed to the LORD, "Sovereign LORD, remember me. Please, God, strengthen me just once more, and let me with one blow get revenge on the Philistines for my two eyes."

Jdg 18:5  Then they said to him, "Please inquire of God to learn whether our journey will be successful."

Jdg 18:10  When you get there, you will find an unsuspecting people and a spacious land that God has put into your hands, a land that lacks nothing whatever."

Jdg 18:31  They continued to use the idol Micah had made, all the time the house of God was in Shiloh.

Jdg 20:2  The leaders of all the people of the tribes of Israel took their places in the assembly of God's people, four hundred thousand men armed with swords.

Jdg 20:18  The Israelites went up to Bethel and inquired of God. They said, "Who of us is to go up first to fight against the Benjamites?" The LORD replied, "Judah shall go first."

Jdg 20:27  And the Israelites inquired of the LORD. (In those days the ark of the covenant of God was there,

Jdg 21:2  The people went to Bethel, where they sat before God until evening, raising their voices and weeping bitterly.

Jdg 21:3  "LORD, God of Israel," they cried, "why has this happened to Israel? Why should one tribe be missing from Israel today?"

Rth 1:16  But Ruth replied, "Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.

Rth 2:12  May the LORD repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded by the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge."

1Sa 1:17  Eli answered, "Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him."

1Sa 2:2  "There is no one holy like the LORD; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.

1Sa 2:3  "Do not keep talking so proudly or let your mouth speak such arrogance, for the LORD is a God who knows, and by him deeds are weighed.

1Sa 2:25  If one person sins against another, God may mediate for the offender; but if anyone sins against the LORD, who will intercede for them?" His sons, however, did not listen to their father's rebuke, for it was the LORD's will to put them to death.

1Sa 2:27  Now a man of God came to Eli and said to him, "This is what the LORD says: 'Did I not clearly reveal myself to your ancestor's family when they were in Egypt under Pharaoh?

1Sa 2:30  "Therefore the LORD, the God of Israel, declares: 'I promised that members of your family would minister before me forever.' But now the LORD declares: 'Far be it from me! Those who honor me I will honor, but those who despise me will be disdained.

1Sa 3:3  The lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was lying down in the house of the LORD, where the ark of God was.

1Sa 3:13  For I told him that I would judge his family forever because of the sin he knew about; his sons blasphemed God, and he failed to restrain them.

1Sa 3:17  "What was it he said to you?" Eli asked. "Do not hide it from me. May God deal with you, be it ever so severely, if you hide from me anything he told you."

1Sa 4:4  So the people sent men to Shiloh, and they brought back the ark of the covenant of the LORD Almighty, who is enthroned between the cherubim. And Eli's two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, were there with the ark of the covenant of God.

1Sa 4:7  the Philistines were afraid. "A god has come into the camp," they said. "Oh no! Nothing like this has happened before.

1Sa 4:11  The ark of God was captured, and Eli's two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, died.

1Sa 4:13  When he arrived, there was Eli sitting on his chair by the side of the road, watching, because his heart feared for the ark of God. When the man entered the town and told what had happened, the whole town sent up a cry.

1Sa 4:17  The man who brought the news replied, "Israel fled before the Philistines, and the army has suffered heavy losses. Also your two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead, and the ark of God has been captured."

1Sa 4:18  When he mentioned the ark of God, Eli fell backward off his chair by the side of the gate. His neck was broken and he died, for he was an old man, and he was heavy. He had led Israel forty years.

1Sa 4:19  His daughter-in-law, the wife of Phinehas, was pregnant and near the time of delivery. When she heard the news that the ark of God had been captured and that her father-in-law and her husband were dead, she went into labor and gave birth, but was overcome by her labor pains.

1Sa 4:21  She named the boy Ichabod, saying, "The Glory has departed from Israel"--because of the capture of the ark of God and the deaths of her father-in-law and her husband.

1Sa 4:22  She said, "The Glory has departed from Israel, for the ark of God has been captured."

1Sa 5:1  After the Philistines had captured the ark of God, they took it from Ebenezer to Ashdod.

1Sa 5:7  When the people of Ashdod saw what was happening, they said, "The ark of the god of Israel must not stay here with us, because his hand is heavy on us and on Dagon our god."

1Sa 5:8  So they called together all the rulers of the Philistines and asked them, "What shall we do with the ark of the god of Israel?" They answered, "Have the ark of the god of Israel moved to Gath." So they moved the ark of the God of Israel.

1Sa 5:10  So they sent the ark of God to Ekron. As the ark of God was entering Ekron, the people of Ekron cried out, "They have brought the ark of the god of Israel around to us to kill us and our people."

1Sa 5:11  So they called together all the rulers of the Philistines and said, "Send the ark of the god of Israel away; let it go back to its own place, or it will kill us and our people." For death had filled the city with panic; God's hand was very heavy on it.

1Sa 6:3  They answered, "If you return the ark of the god of Israel, do not send it back to him without a gift; by all means send a guilt offering to him. Then you will be healed, and you will know why his hand has not been lifted from you."

1Sa 6:5  Make models of the tumors and of the rats that are destroying the country, and give glory to Israel's god. Perhaps he will lift his hand from you and your gods and your land.

1Sa 6:6  Why do you harden your hearts as the Egyptians and Pharaoh did? When Israel's god dealt harshly with them, did they not send the Israelites out so they could go on their way?

1Sa 6:19  But God struck down some of the inhabitants of Beth Shemesh, putting seventy of them to death because they looked into the ark of the LORD. The people mourned because of the heavy blow the LORD had dealt them.

1Sa 6:20  And the people of Beth Shemesh asked, "Who can stand in the presence of the LORD, this holy God? To whom will the ark go up from here?"

1Sa 7:8  They said to Samuel, "Do not stop crying out to the LORD our God for us, that he may rescue us from the hand of the Philistines."

1Sa 9:6  But the servant replied, "Look, in this town there is a man of God; he is highly respected, and everything he says comes true. Let's go there now. Perhaps he will tell us what way to take."

1Sa 9:7  Saul said to his servant, "If we go, what can we give the man? The food in our sacks is gone. We have no gift to take to the man of God. What do we have?"

1Sa 9:8  The servant answered him again. "Look," he said, "I have a quarter of a shekel of silver. I will give it to the man of God so that he will tell us what way to take."

1Sa 9:9  (Formerly in Israel, if someone went to inquire of God, they would say, "Come, let us go to the seer," because the prophet of today used to be called a seer.)

1Sa 9:10  "Good," Saul said to his servant. "Come, let's go." So they set out for the town where the man of God was.

1Sa 9:27  As they were going down to the edge of the town, Samuel said to Saul, "Tell the servant to go on ahead of us"--and the servant did so--"but you stay here for a while, so that I may give you a message from God."

1Sa 10:3  "Then you will go on from there until you reach the great tree of Tabor. Three men going up to worship God at Bethel will meet you there. One will be carrying three young goats, another three loaves of bread, and another a skin of wine.

1Sa 10:5  "After that you will go to Gibeah of God, where there is a Philistine outpost. As you approach the town, you will meet a procession of prophets coming down from the high place with lyres, timbrels, pipes and harps being played before them, and they will be prophesying.

1Sa 10:7  Once these signs are fulfilled, do whatever your hand finds to do, for God is with you.

1Sa 10:9  As Saul turned to leave Samuel, God changed Saul's heart, and all these signs were fulfilled that day.

1Sa 10:10  When he and his servant arrived at Gibeah, a procession of prophets met him; the Spirit of God came powerfully upon him, and he joined in their prophesying.

1Sa 10:18  and said to them, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'I brought Israel up out of Egypt, and I delivered you from the power of Egypt and all the kingdoms that oppressed you.'

1Sa 10:19  But you have now rejected your God, who saves you out of all your disasters and calamities. And you have said, 'No, appoint a king over us.' So now present yourselves before the LORD by your tribes and clans."

1Sa 10:26  Saul also went to his home in Gibeah, accompanied by valiant men whose hearts God had touched.

1Sa 11:6  When Saul heard their words, the Spirit of God came powerfully upon him, and he burned with anger.

1Sa 12:9  "But they forgot the LORD their God; so he sold them into the hand of Sisera, the commander of the army of Hazor, and into the hands of the Philistines and the king of Moab, who fought against them.

1Sa 12:12  "But when you saw that Nahash king of the Ammonites was moving against you, you said to me, 'No, we want a king to rule over us'--even though the LORD your God was your king.

1Sa 12:14  If you fear the LORD and serve and obey him and do not rebel against his commands, and if both you and the king who reigns over you follow the LORD your God--good!

1Sa 12:19  The people all said to Samuel, "Pray to the LORD your God for your servants so that we will not die, for we have added to all our other sins the evil of asking for a king."

1Sa 13:13  "You have done a foolish thing," Samuel said. "You have not kept the command the LORD your God gave you; if you had, he would have established your kingdom over Israel for all time.

1Sa 14:15  Then panic struck the whole army--those in the camp and field, and those in the outposts and raiding parties--and the ground shook. It was a panic sent by God.

1Sa 14:18  Saul said to Ahijah, "Bring the ark of God." (At that time it was with the Israelites.)

1Sa 14:36  Saul said, "Let us go down and pursue the Philistines by night and plunder them till dawn, and let us not leave one of them alive." "Do whatever seems best to you," they replied. But the priest said, "Let us inquire of God here."

1Sa 14:37  So Saul asked God, "Shall I go down and pursue the Philistines? Will you give them into Israel's hand?" But God did not answer him that day.

1Sa 14:41  Then Saul prayed to the LORD, the God of Israel, "Why have you not answered your servant today? If the fault is in me or my son Jonathan, respond with Urim, but if the men of Israel are at fault, respond with Thummim." Jonathan and Saul were taken by lot, and the men were cleared.

1Sa 14:44  Saul said, "May God deal with me, be it ever so severely, if you do not die, Jonathan."

1Sa 14:45  But the men said to Saul, "Should Jonathan die--he who has brought about this great deliverance in Israel? Never! As surely as the LORD lives, not a hair of his head will fall to the ground, for he did this today with God's help." So the men rescued Jonathan, and he was not put to death.

1Sa 15:15  Saul answered, "The soldiers brought them from the Amalekites; they spared the best of the sheep and cattle to sacrifice to the LORD your God, but we totally destroyed the rest."

1Sa 15:21  The soldiers took sheep and cattle from the plunder, the best of what was devoted to God, in order to sacrifice them to the LORD your God at Gilgal."

1Sa 15:30  Saul replied, "I have sinned. But please honor me before the elders of my people and before Israel; come back with me, so that I may worship the LORD your God."

1Sa 16:15  Saul's attendants said to him, "See, an evil spirit from God is tormenting you.

1Sa 16:16  Let our lord command his servants here to search for someone who can play the lyre. He will play when the evil spirit from God comes on you, and you will feel better."

1Sa 16:23  Whenever the spirit from God came on Saul, David would take up his lyre and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him.

1Sa 17:26  David asked the men standing near him, "What will be done for the man who kills this Philistine and removes this disgrace from Israel? Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?"

1Sa 17:36  Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God.

1Sa 17:45  David said to the Philistine, "You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

1Sa 17:46  This day the LORD will deliver you into my hands, and I'll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel.

1Sa 18:10  The next day an evil spirit from God came forcefully on Saul. He was prophesying in his house, while David was playing the lyre, as he usually did. Saul had a spear in his hand

1Sa 19:20  so he sent men to capture him. But when they saw a group of prophets prophesying, with Samuel standing there as their leader, the Spirit of God came on Saul's men, and they also prophesied.

1Sa 19:23  So Saul went to Naioth at Ramah. But the Spirit of God came even on him, and he walked along prophesying until he came to Naioth.

1Sa 20:12  Then Jonathan said to David, "I swear by the LORD, the God of Israel, that I will surely sound out my father by this time the day after tomorrow! If he is favorably disposed toward you, will I not send you word and let you know?

1Sa 22:3  From there David went to Mizpah in Moab and said to the king of Moab, "Would you let my father and mother come and stay with you until I learn what God will do for me?"

1Sa 22:13  Saul said to him, "Why have you conspired against me, you and the son of Jesse, giving him bread and a sword and inquiring of God for him, so that he has rebelled against me and lies in wait for me, as he does today?"

1Sa 22:15  Was that day the first time I inquired of God for him? Of course not! Let not the king accuse your servant or any of his father's family, for your servant knows nothing at all about this whole affair."

1Sa 23:7  Saul was told that David had gone to Keilah, and he said, "God has delivered him into my hands, for David has imprisoned himself by entering a town with gates and bars."

1Sa 23:10  David said, "LORD, God of Israel, your servant has heard definitely that Saul plans to come to Keilah and destroy the town on account of me.

1Sa 23:11  Will the citizens of Keilah surrender me to him? Will Saul come down, as your servant has heard? LORD, God of Israel, tell your servant." And the LORD said, "He will."

1Sa 23:14  David stayed in the wilderness strongholds and in the hills of the Desert of Ziph. Day after day Saul searched for him, but God did not give David into his hands.

1Sa 23:16  And Saul's son Jonathan went to David at Horesh and helped him find strength in God.

1Sa 25:22  May God deal with David, be it ever so severely, if by morning I leave alive one male of all who belong to him!"

1Sa 25:26  And now, my lord, as surely as the LORD your God lives and as you live, since the LORD has kept you from bloodshed and from avenging yourself with your own hands, may your enemies and all who are intent on harming my lord be like Nabal.

1Sa 25:28  "Please forgive your servant's presumption. The LORD your God will certainly make a lasting dynasty for my lord, because you fight the LORD's battles, and no wrongdoing will be found in you as long as you live.

1Sa 25:29  Even though someone is pursuing you to take your life, the life of my lord will be bound securely in the bundle of the living by the LORD your God, but the lives of your enemies he will hurl away as from the pocket of a sling.

1Sa 25:31  my lord will not have on his conscience the staggering burden of needless bloodshed or of having avenged himself. And when the LORD your God has brought my lord success, remember your servant."

1Sa 25:32  David said to Abigail, "Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, who has sent you today to meet me.

1Sa 25:34  Otherwise, as surely as the LORD, the God of Israel, lives, who has kept me from harming you, if you had not come quickly to meet me, not one male belonging to Nabal would have been left alive by daybreak."

1Sa 26:8  Abishai said to David, "Today God has delivered your enemy into your hands. Now let me pin him to the ground with one thrust of the spear; I won't strike him twice."

1Sa 28:15  Samuel said to Saul, "Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?" "I am in great distress," Saul said. "The Philistines are fighting against me, and God has departed from me. He no longer answers me, either by prophets or by dreams. So I have called on you to tell me what to do."

1Sa 29:9  Achish answered, "I know that you have been as pleasing in my eyes as an angel of God; nevertheless, the Philistine commanders have said, 'He must not go up with us into battle.'

1Sa 30:6  David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the LORD his God.

1Sa 30:15  David asked him, "Can you lead me down to this raiding party?" He answered, "Swear to me before God that you will not kill me or hand me over to my master, and I will take you down to them."

2Sa 2:27  Joab answered, "As surely as God lives, if you had not spoken, the men would have continued pursuing them until morning."

2Sa 3:9  May God deal with Abner, be it ever so severely, if I do not do for David what the LORD promised him on oath

2Sa 3:35  Then they all came and urged David to eat something while it was still day; but David took an oath, saying, "May God deal with me, be it ever so severely, if I taste bread or anything else before the sun sets!"

2Sa 5:10  And he became more and more powerful, because the LORD God Almighty was with him.

2Sa 6:2  He and all his men went to Baalah in Judah to bring up from there the ark of God, which is called by the Name, the name of the LORD Almighty, who is enthroned between the cherubim on the ark.

2Sa 6:3  They set the ark of God on a new cart and brought it from the house of Abinadab, which was on the hill. Uzzah and Ahio, sons of Abinadab, were guiding the new cart

2Sa 6:4  with the ark of God on it, and Ahio was walking in front of it.

2Sa 6:6  When they came to the threshing floor of Nakon, Uzzah reached out and took hold of the ark of God, because the oxen stumbled.

2Sa 6:7  The LORD's anger burned against Uzzah because of his irreverent act; therefore God struck him down, and he died there beside the ark of God.

2Sa 6:12  Now King David was told, "The LORD has blessed the household of Obed-Edom and everything he has, because of the ark of God." So David went to bring up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with rejoicing.

2Sa 7:2  he said to Nathan the prophet, "Here I am, living in a house of cedar, while the ark of God remains in a tent."

2Sa 7:22  "How great you are, Sovereign LORD! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.

2Sa 7:23  And who is like your people Israel--the one nation on earth that God went out to redeem as a people for himself, and to make a name for himself, and to perform great and awesome wonders by driving out nations and their gods from before your people, whom you redeemed from Egypt?

2Sa 7:24  You have established your people Israel as your very own forever, and you, LORD, have become their God.

2Sa 7:25  "And now, LORD God, keep forever the promise you have made concerning your servant and his house. Do as you promised,

2Sa 7:26  so that your name will be great forever. Then people will say, 'The LORD Almighty is God over Israel!' And the house of your servant David will be established in your sight.

2Sa 7:27  "LORD Almighty, God of Israel, you have revealed this to your servant, saying, 'I will build a house for you.' So your servant has found courage to pray this prayer to you.

2Sa 7:28  Sovereign LORD, you are God! Your covenant is trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant.

2Sa 9:3  The king asked, "Is there no one still alive from the house of Saul to whom I can show God's kindness?" Ziba answered the king, "There is still a son of Jonathan; he is lame in both feet."

2Sa 10:12  Be strong, and let us fight bravely for our people and the cities of our God. The LORD will do what is good in his sight."

2Sa 12:7  Then Nathan said to David, "You are the man! This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul.

2Sa 12:16  David pleaded with God for the child. He fasted and spent the nights lying in sackcloth on the ground.

2Sa 14:11  She said, "Then let the king invoke the LORD his God to prevent the avenger of blood from adding to the destruction, so that my son will not be destroyed." "As surely as the LORD lives," he said, "not one hair of your son's head will fall to the ground."

2Sa 14:13  The woman said, "Why then have you devised a thing like this against the people of God? When the king says this, does he not convict himself, for the king has not brought back his banished son?

2Sa 14:14  Like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be recovered, so we must die. But that is not what God desires; rather, he devises ways so that a banished person does not remain banished from him.

2Sa 14:16  Perhaps the king will agree to deliver his servant from the hand of the man who is trying to cut off both me and my son from God's inheritance.'

2Sa 14:17  "And now your servant says, 'May the word of my lord the king secure my inheritance, for my lord the king is like an angel of God in discerning good and evil. May the LORD your God be with you.'"

2Sa 14:20  Your servant Joab did this to change the present situation. My lord has wisdom like that of an angel of God--he knows everything that happens in the land."

2Sa 15:24  Zadok was there, too, and all the Levites who were with him were carrying the ark of the covenant of God. They set down the ark of God, and Abiathar offered sacrifices until all the people had finished leaving the city.

2Sa 15:25  Then the king said to Zadok, "Take the ark of God back into the city. If I find favor in the LORD's eyes, he will bring me back and let me see it and his dwelling place again.

2Sa 15:29  So Zadok and Abiathar took the ark of God back to Jerusalem and stayed there.

2Sa 15:32  When David arrived at the summit, where people used to worship God, Hushai the Arkite was there to meet him, his robe torn and dust on his head.

2Sa 16:23  Now in those days the advice Ahithophel gave was like that of one who inquires of God. That was how both David and Absalom regarded all of Ahithophel's advice.

2Sa 18:28  Then Ahimaaz called out to the king, "All is well!" He bowed down before the king with his face to the ground and said, "Praise be to the LORD your God! He has delivered up those who lifted their hands against my lord the king."

2Sa 19:13  And say to Amasa, 'Are you not my own flesh and blood? May God deal with me, be it ever so severely, if you are not the commander of my army for life in place of Joab.'"

2Sa 19:27  And he has slandered your servant to my lord the king. My lord the king is like an angel of God; so do whatever you wish.

2Sa 21:14  They buried the bones of Saul and his son Jonathan in the tomb of Saul's father Kish, at Zela in Benjamin, and did everything the king commanded. After that, God answered prayer in behalf of the land.

2Sa 22:3  my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior-- from violent people you save me.

2Sa 22:7  "In my distress I called to the LORD; I called out to my God. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came to his ears.

2Sa 22:22  For I have kept the ways of the LORD; I am not guilty of turning from my God.

2Sa 22:30  With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.

2Sa 22:31  "As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD's word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.

2Sa 22:32  For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God?

2Sa 22:33  It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.

2Sa 22:47  "The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be my God, the Rock, my Savior!

2Sa 22:48  He is the God who avenges me, who puts the nations under me,

2Sa 23:1  These are the last words of David: "The inspired utterance of David son of Jesse, the utterance of the man exalted by the Most High, the man anointed by the God of Jacob, the hero of Israel's songs:

2Sa 23:3  The God of Israel spoke, the Rock of Israel said to me: 'When one rules over people in righteousness, when he rules in the fear of God,

2Sa 23:5  "If my house were not right with God, surely he would not have made with me an everlasting covenant, arranged and secured in every part; surely he would not bring to fruition my salvation and grant me my every desire.

2Sa 24:3  But Joab replied to the king, "May the LORD your God multiply the troops a hundred times over, and may the eyes of my lord the king see it. But why does my lord the king want to do such a thing?"

2Sa 24:23  Your Majesty, Araunah gives all this to the king." Araunah also said to him, "May the LORD your God accept you."

2Sa 24:24  But the king replied to Araunah, "No, I insist on paying you for it. I will not sacrifice to the LORD my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing." So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen and paid fifty shekels of silver for them.

1Ki 1:17  She said to him, "My lord, you yourself swore to me your servant by the LORD your God: 'Solomon your son shall be king after me, and he will sit on my throne.'

1Ki 1:30  I will surely carry out this very day what I swore to you by the LORD, the God of Israel: Solomon your son shall be king after me, and he will sit on my throne in my place."

1Ki 1:36  Benaiah son of Jehoiada answered the king, "Amen! May the LORD, the God of my lord the king, so declare it.

1Ki 1:47  Also, the royal officials have come to congratulate our lord King David, saying, 'May your God make Solomon's name more famous than yours and his throne greater than yours!' And the king bowed in worship on his bed

1Ki 1:48  and said, 'Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, who has allowed my eyes to see a successor on my throne today.'"

1Ki 2:3  and observe what the LORD your God requires: Walk in obedience to him, and keep his decrees and commands, his laws and regulations, as written in the Law of Moses. Do this so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go

1Ki 2:23  Then King Solomon swore by the LORD: "May God deal with me, be it ever so severely, if Adonijah does not pay with his life for this request!

1Ki 3:5  At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon during the night in a dream, and God said, "Ask for whatever you want me to give you."

1Ki 3:7  "Now, LORD my God, you have made your servant king in place of my father David. But I am only a little child and do not know how to carry out my duties.

1Ki 3:11  So God said to him, "Since you have asked for this and not for long life or wealth for yourself, nor have asked for the death of your enemies but for discernment in administering justice,

1Ki 3:28  When all Israel heard the verdict the king had given, they held the king in awe, because they saw that he had wisdom from God to administer justice.

1Ki 4:29  God gave Solomon wisdom and very great insight, and a breadth of understanding as measureless as the sand on the seashore.

1Ki 5:3  "You know that because of the wars waged against my father David from all sides, he could not build a temple for the Name of the LORD his God until the LORD put his enemies under his feet.

1Ki 5:4  But now the LORD my God has given me rest on every side, and there is no adversary or disaster.

1Ki 5:5  I intend, therefore, to build a temple for the Name of the LORD my God, as the LORD told my father David, when he said, 'Your son whom I will put on the throne in your place will build the temple for my Name.'

1Ki 8:15  Then he said: "Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, who with his own hand has fulfilled what he promised with his own mouth to my father David. For he said,

1Ki 8:17  "My father David had it in his heart to build a temple for the Name of the LORD, the God of Israel.

1Ki 8:20  "The LORD has kept the promise he made: I have succeeded David my father and now I sit on the throne of Israel, just as the LORD promised, and I have built the temple for the Name of the LORD, the God of Israel.

1Ki 8:23  and said: "LORD, the God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven above or on earth below--you who keep your covenant of love with your servants who continue wholeheartedly in your way.

1Ki 8:25  "Now LORD, the God of Israel, keep for your servant David my father the promises you made to him when you said, 'You shall never fail to have a successor to sit before me on the throne of Israel, if only your descendants are careful in all they do to walk before me faithfully as you have done.'

1Ki 8:26  And now, God of Israel, let your word that you promised your servant David my father come true.

1Ki 8:27  "But will God really dwell on earth? The heavens, even the highest heaven, cannot contain you. How much less this temple I have built!

1Ki 8:28  Yet give attention to your servant's prayer and his plea for mercy, LORD my God. Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day.

1Ki 8:57  May the LORD our God be with us as he was with our ancestors; may he never leave us nor forsake us.

1Ki 8:59  And may these words of mine, which I have prayed before the LORD, be near to the LORD our God day and night, that he may uphold the cause of his servant and the cause of his people Israel according to each day's need,

1Ki 8:60  so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the LORD is God and that there is no other.

1Ki 8:61  And may your hearts be fully committed to the LORD our God, to live by his decrees and obey his commands, as at this time."

1Ki 8:65  So Solomon observed the festival at that time, and all Israel with him--a vast assembly, people from Lebo Hamath to the Wadi of Egypt. They celebrated it before the LORD our God for seven days and seven days more, fourteen days in all.

1Ki 9:9  People will answer, 'Because they have forsaken the LORD their God, who brought their ancestors out of Egypt, and have embraced other gods, worshiping and serving them--that is why the LORD brought all this disaster on them.'"

1Ki 10:9  Praise be to the LORD your God, who has delighted in you and placed you on the throne of Israel. Because of the LORD's eternal love for Israel, he has made you king to maintain justice and righteousness."

1Ki 10:24  The whole world sought audience with Solomon to hear the wisdom God had put in his heart.

1Ki 11:4  As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father had been.

1Ki 11:5  He followed Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and Molek the detestable god of the Ammonites.

1Ki 11:7  On a hill east of Jerusalem, Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the detestable god of Moab, and for Molek the detestable god of the Ammonites.

1Ki 11:9  The LORD became angry with Solomon because his heart had turned away from the LORD, the God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice.

1Ki 11:23  And God raised up against Solomon another adversary, Rezon son of Eliada, who had fled from his master, Hadadezer king of Zobah.

1Ki 11:31  Then he said to Jeroboam, "Take ten pieces for yourself, for this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'See, I am going to tear the kingdom out of Solomon's hand and give you ten tribes.

1Ki 11:33  I will do this because they have forsaken me and worshiped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Molek the god of the Ammonites, and have not walked in obedience to me, nor done what is right in my eyes, nor kept my decrees and laws as David, Solomon's father, did.

1Ki 12:22  But this word of God came to Shemaiah the man of God:

1Ki 13:1  By the word of the LORD a man of God came from Judah to Bethel, as Jeroboam was standing by the altar to make an offering.

1Ki 13:3  That same day the man of God gave a sign: "This is the sign the LORD has declared: The altar will be split apart and the ashes on it will be poured out."

1Ki 13:4  When King Jeroboam heard what the man of God cried out against the altar at Bethel, he stretched out his hand from the altar and said, "Seize him!" But the hand he stretched out toward the man shriveled up, so that he could not pull it back.

1Ki 13:5  Also, the altar was split apart and its ashes poured out according to the sign given by the man of God by the word of the LORD.

1Ki 13:6  Then the king said to the man of God, "Intercede with the LORD your God and pray for me that my hand may be restored." So the man of God interceded with the LORD, and the king's hand was restored and became as it was before.

1Ki 13:7  The king said to the man of God, "Come home with me for a meal, and I will give you a gift."

1Ki 13:8  But the man of God answered the king, "Even if you were to give me half your possessions, I would not go with you, nor would I eat bread or drink water here.

1Ki 13:11  Now there was a certain old prophet living in Bethel, whose sons came and told him all that the man of God had done there that day. They also told their father what he had said to the king.

1Ki 13:12  Their father asked them, "Which way did he go?" And his sons showed him which road the man of God from Judah had taken.

1Ki 13:14  and rode after the man of God. He found him sitting under an oak tree and asked, "Are you the man of God who came from Judah?" "I am," he replied.

1Ki 13:16  The man of God said, "I cannot turn back and go with you, nor can I eat bread or drink water with you in this place.

1Ki 13:19  So the man of God returned with him and ate and drank in his house.

1Ki 13:21  He cried out to the man of God who had come from Judah, "This is what the LORD says: 'You have defied the word of the LORD and have not kept the command the LORD your God gave you.

1Ki 13:23  When the man of God had finished eating and drinking, the prophet who had brought him back saddled his donkey for him.

1Ki 13:26  When the prophet who had brought him back from his journey heard of it, he said, "It is the man of God who defied the word of the LORD. The LORD has given him over to the lion, which has mauled him and killed him, as the word of the LORD had warned him."

1Ki 13:29  So the prophet picked up the body of the man of God, laid it on the donkey, and brought it back to his own city to mourn for him and bury him.

1Ki 13:31  After burying him, he said to his sons, "When I die, bury me in the grave where the man of God is buried; lay my bones beside his bones.

1Ki 14:7  Go, tell Jeroboam that this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'I raised you up from among the people and appointed you ruler over my people Israel.

1Ki 14:13  All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He is the only one belonging to Jeroboam who will be buried, because he is the only one in the house of Jeroboam in whom the LORD, the God of Israel, has found anything good.

1Ki 15:3  He committed all the sins his father had done before him; his heart was not fully devoted to the LORD his God, as the heart of David his forefather had been.

1Ki 15:4  Nevertheless, for David's sake the LORD his God gave him a lamp in Jerusalem by raising up a son to succeed him and by making Jerusalem strong.

1Ki 15:30  This happened because of the sins Jeroboam had committed and had caused Israel to commit, and because he aroused the anger of the LORD, the God of Israel.

1Ki 16:13  because of all the sins Baasha and his son Elah had committed and had caused Israel to commit, so that they aroused the anger of the LORD, the God of Israel, by their worthless idols.

1Ki 16:26  He followed completely the ways of Jeroboam son of Nebat, committing the same sin Jeroboam had caused Israel to commit, so that they aroused the anger of the LORD, the God of Israel, by their worthless idols.

1Ki 16:33  Ahab also made an Asherah pole and did more to arouse the anger of the LORD, the God of Israel, than did all the kings of Israel before him.

1Ki 17:1  Now Elijah the Tishbite, from Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, "As the LORD, the God of Israel, lives, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain in the next few years except at my word."

1Ki 17:12  "As surely as the LORD your God lives," she replied, "I don't have any bread--only a handful of flour in a jar and a little olive oil in a jug. I am gathering a few sticks to take home and make a meal for myself and my son, that we may eat it--and die."

1Ki 17:14  For this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the LORD sends rain on the land.'"

1Ki 17:18  She said to Elijah, "What do you have against me, man of God? Did you come to remind me of my sin and kill my son?"

1Ki 17:20  Then he cried out to the LORD, "LORD my God, have you brought tragedy even on this widow I am staying with, by causing her son to die?"

1Ki 17:21  Then he stretched himself out on the boy three times and cried out to the LORD, "LORD my God, let this boy's life return to him!"

1Ki 17:24  Then the woman said to Elijah, "Now I know that you are a man of God and that the word of the LORD from your mouth is the truth."

1Ki 18:10  As surely as the LORD your God lives, there is not a nation or kingdom where my master has not sent someone to look for you. And whenever a nation or kingdom claimed you were not there, he made them swear they could not find you.

1Ki 18:21  Elijah went before the people and said, "How long will you waver between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him." But the people said nothing.

1Ki 18:24  Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of the LORD. The god who answers by fire--he is God." Then all the people said, "What you say is good."

1Ki 18:25  Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, "Choose one of the bulls and prepare it first, since there are so many of you. Call on the name of your god, but do not light the fire."

1Ki 18:27  At noon Elijah began to taunt them. "Shout louder!" he said. "Surely he is a god! Perhaps he is deep in thought, or busy, or traveling. Maybe he is sleeping and must be awakened."

1Ki 18:36  At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed: "LORD, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command.

1Ki 18:37  Answer me, LORD, answer me, so these people will know that you, LORD, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again."

1Ki 18:39  When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, "The LORD--he is God! The LORD--he is God!"

1Ki 19:8  So he got up and ate and drank. Strengthened by that food, he traveled forty days and forty nights until he reached Horeb, the mountain of God.

1Ki 19:10  He replied, "I have been very zealous for the LORD God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, torn down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too."

1Ki 19:14  He replied, "I have been very zealous for the LORD God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, torn down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too."

1Ki 20:28  The man of God came up and told the king of Israel, "This is what the LORD says: 'Because the Arameans think the LORD is a god of the hills and not a god of the valleys, I will deliver this vast army into your hands, and you will know that I am the LORD.'"

1Ki 21:10  But seat two scoundrels opposite him and have them bring charges that he has cursed both God and the king. Then take him out and stone him to death."

1Ki 21:13  Then two scoundrels came and sat opposite him and brought charges against Naboth before the people, saying, "Naboth has cursed both God and the king." So they took him outside the city and stoned him to death.

1Ki 22:53  He served and worshiped Baal and aroused the anger of the LORD, the God of Israel, just as his father had done.

2Ki 1:2  Now Ahaziah had fallen through the lattice of his upper room in Samaria and injured himself. So he sent messengers, saying to them, "Go and consult Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron, to see if I will recover from this injury."

2Ki 1:3  But the angel of the LORD said to Elijah the Tishbite, "Go up and meet the messengers of the king of Samaria and ask them, 'Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are going off to consult Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron?'

2Ki 1:6  "A man came to meet us," they replied. "And he said to us, 'Go back to the king who sent you and tell him, "This is what the LORD says: Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are sending messengers to consult Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron? Therefore you will not leave the bed you are lying on. You will certainly die!"'"

2Ki 1:9  Then he sent to Elijah a captain with his company of fifty men. The captain went up to Elijah, who was sitting on the top of a hill, and said to him, "Man of God, the king says, 'Come down!'"

2Ki 1:10  Elijah answered the captain, "If I am a man of God, may fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty men!" Then fire fell from heaven and consumed the captain and his men.

2Ki 1:11  At this the king sent to Elijah another captain with his fifty men. The captain said to him, "Man of God, this is what the king says, 'Come down at once!'"

2Ki 1:12  "If I am a man of God," Elijah replied, "may fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty men!" Then the fire of God fell from heaven and consumed him and his fifty men.

2Ki 1:13  So the king sent a third captain with his fifty men. This third captain went up and fell on his knees before Elijah. "Man of God," he begged, "please have respect for my life and the lives of these fifty men, your servants!

2Ki 1:16  He told the king, "This is what the LORD says: Is it because there is no God in Israel for you to consult that you have sent messengers to consult Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron? Because you have done this, you will never leave the bed you are lying on. You will certainly die!"

2Ki 2:14  He took the cloak that had fallen from Elijah and struck the water with it. "Where now is the LORD, the God of Elijah?" he asked. When he struck the water, it divided to the right and to the left, and he crossed over.

2Ki 4:7  She went and told the man of God, and he said, "Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons can live on what is left."

2Ki 4:9  She said to her husband, "I know that this man who often comes our way is a holy man of God.

2Ki 4:16  "About this time next year," Elisha said, "you will hold a son in your arms." "No, my lord!" she objected. "Please, man of God, don't mislead your servant!"

2Ki 4:21  She went up and laid him on the bed of the man of God, then shut the door and went out.

2Ki 4:22  She called her husband and said, "Please send me one of the servants and a donkey so I can go to the man of God quickly and return."

2Ki 4:25  So she set out and came to the man of God at Mount Carmel. When he saw her in the distance, the man of God said to his servant Gehazi, "Look! There's the Shunammite!

2Ki 4:27  When she reached the man of God at the mountain, she took hold of his feet. Gehazi came over to push her away, but the man of God said, "Leave her alone! She is in bitter distress, but the LORD has hidden it from me and has not told me why."

2Ki 4:40  The stew was poured out for the men, but as they began to eat it, they cried out, "Man of God, there is death in the pot!" And they could not eat it.

2Ki 4:42  A man came from Baal Shalishah, bringing the man of God twenty loaves of barley bread baked from the first ripe grain, along with some heads of new grain. "Give it to the people to eat," Elisha said.

2Ki 5:7  As soon as the king of Israel read the letter, he tore his robes and said, "Am I God? Can I kill and bring back to life? Why does this fellow send someone to me to be cured of his leprosy? See how he is trying to pick a quarrel with me!"

2Ki 5:8  When Elisha the man of God heard that the king of Israel had torn his robes, he sent him this message: "Why have you torn your robes? Have the man come to me and he will know that there is a prophet in Israel."

2Ki 5:11  But Naaman went away angry and said, "I thought that he would surely come out to me and stand and call on the name of the LORD his God, wave his hand over the spot and cure me of my leprosy.

2Ki 5:14  So he went down and dipped himself in the Jordan seven times, as the man of God had told him, and his flesh was restored and became clean like that of a young boy.

2Ki 5:15  Then Naaman and all his attendants went back to the man of God. He stood before him and said, "Now I know that there is no God in all the world except in Israel. So please accept a gift from your servant."

2Ki 5:17  "If you will not," said Naaman, "please let me, your servant, be given as much earth as a pair of mules can carry, for your servant will never again make burnt offerings and sacrifices to any other god but the LORD.

2Ki 5:20  Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said to himself, "My master was too easy on Naaman, this Aramean, by not accepting from him what he brought. As surely as the LORD lives, I will run after him and get something from him."

2Ki 6:6  The man of God asked, "Where did it fall?" When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it there, and made the iron float.

2Ki 6:9  The man of God sent word to the king of Israel: "Beware of passing that place, because the Arameans are going down there."

2Ki 6:10  So the king of Israel checked on the place indicated by the man of God. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard in such places.

2Ki 6:15  When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. "Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?" the servant asked.

2Ki 6:31  He said, "May God deal with me, be it ever so severely, if the head of Elisha son of Shaphat remains on his shoulders today!"

2Ki 7:2  The officer on whose arm the king was leaning said to the man of God, "Look, even if the LORD should open the floodgates of the heavens, could this happen?" "You will see it with your own eyes," answered Elisha, "but you will not eat any of it!"

2Ki 7:17  Now the king had put the officer on whose arm he leaned in charge of the gate, and the people trampled him in the gateway, and he died, just as the man of God had foretold when the king came down to his house.

2Ki 7:18  It happened as the man of God had said to the king: "About this time tomorrow, a seah of the finest flour will sell for a shekel and two seahs of barley for a shekel at the gate of Samaria."

2Ki 7:19  The officer had said to the man of God, "Look, even if the LORD should open the floodgates of the heavens, could this happen?" The man of God had replied, "You will see it with your own eyes, but you will not eat any of it!"

2Ki 8:2  The woman proceeded to do as the man of God said. She and her family went away and stayed in the land of the Philistines seven years.

2Ki 8:4  The king was talking to Gehazi, the servant of the man of God, and had said, "Tell me about all the great things Elisha has done."

2Ki 8:7  Elisha went to Damascus, and Ben-Hadad king of Aram was ill. When the king was told, "The man of God has come all the way up here,"

2Ki 8:8  he said to Hazael, "Take a gift with you and go to meet the man of God. Consult the LORD through him; ask him, 'Will I recover from this illness?'"

2Ki 8:11  He stared at him with a fixed gaze until Hazael was embarrassed. Then the man of God began to weep.

2Ki 9:6  Jehu got up and went into the house. Then the prophet poured the oil on Jehu's head and declared, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'I anoint you king over the LORD's people Israel.

2Ki 10:31  Yet Jehu was not careful to keep the law of the LORD, the God of Israel, with all his heart. He did not turn away from the sins of Jeroboam, which he had caused Israel to commit.

2Ki 13:19  The man of God was angry with him and said, "You should have struck the ground five or six times; then you would have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it. But now you will defeat it only three times."

2Ki 14:25  He was the one who restored the boundaries of Israel from Lebo Hamath to the Dead Sea, in accordance with the word of the LORD, the God of Israel, spoken through his servant Jonah son of Amittai, the prophet from Gath Hepher.

2Ki 16:2  Ahaz was twenty years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem sixteen years. Unlike David his father, he did not do what was right in the eyes of the LORD his God.

2Ki 17:7  All this took place because the Israelites had sinned against the LORD their God, who had brought them up out of Egypt from under the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt. They worshiped other gods

2Ki 17:9  The Israelites secretly did things against the LORD their God that were not right. From watchtower to fortified city they built themselves high places in all their towns.

2Ki 17:14  But they would not listen and were as stiff-necked as their ancestors, who did not trust in the LORD their God.

2Ki 17:16  They forsook all the commands of the LORD their God and made for themselves two idols cast in the shape of calves, and an Asherah pole. They bowed down to all the starry hosts, and they worshiped Baal.

2Ki 17:19  and even Judah did not keep the commands of the LORD their God. They followed the practices Israel had introduced.

2Ki 17:26  It was reported to the king of Assyria: "The people you deported and resettled in the towns of Samaria do not know what the god of that country requires. He has sent lions among them, which are killing them off, because the people do not know what he requires."

2Ki 17:27  Then the king of Assyria gave this order: "Have one of the priests you took captive from Samaria go back to live there and teach the people what the god of the land requires."

2Ki 17:39  Rather, worship the LORD your God; it is he who will deliver you from the hand of all your enemies."

2Ki 18:5  Hezekiah trusted in the LORD, the God of Israel. There was no one like him among all the kings of Judah, either before him or after him.

2Ki 18:12  This happened because they had not obeyed the LORD their God, but had violated his covenant--all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded. They neither listened to the commands nor carried them out.

2Ki 18:22  But if you say to me, "We are depending on the LORD our God"--isn't he the one whose high places and altars Hezekiah removed, saying to Judah and Jerusalem, "You must worship before this altar in Jerusalem"?

2Ki 18:33  Has the god of any nation ever delivered his land from the hand of the king of Assyria?

2Ki 19:4  It may be that the LORD your God will hear all the words of the field commander, whom his master, the king of Assyria, has sent to ridicule the living God, and that he will rebuke him for the words the LORD your God has heard. Therefore pray for the remnant that still survives."

2Ki 19:10  "Say to Hezekiah king of Judah: Do not let the god you depend on deceive you when he says, 'Jerusalem will not be given into the hands of the king of Assyria.'

2Ki 19:15  And Hezekiah prayed to the LORD: "LORD, the God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.

2Ki 19:16  Give ear, LORD, and hear; open your eyes, LORD, and see; listen to the words Sennacherib has sent to ridicule the living God.

2Ki 19:19  Now, LORD our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you alone, LORD, are God."

2Ki 19:20  Then Isaiah son of Amoz sent a message to Hezekiah: "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I have heard your prayer concerning Sennacherib king of Assyria.

2Ki 19:37  One day, while he was worshiping in the temple of his god Nisrok, his sons Adrammelek and Sharezer killed him with the sword, and they escaped to the land of Ararat. And Esarhaddon his son succeeded him as king.

2Ki 20:5  "Go back and tell Hezekiah, the ruler of my people, 'This is what the LORD, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the temple of the LORD.

2Ki 21:12  Therefore this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I am going to bring such disaster on Jerusalem and Judah that the ears of everyone who hears of it will tingle.

2Ki 21:22  He forsook the LORD, the God of his ancestors, and did not walk in obedience to him.

2Ki 22:15  She said to them, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Tell the man who sent you to me,

2Ki 22:18  Tell the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of the LORD, 'This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says concerning the words you heard:

2Ki 23:13  The king also desecrated the high places that were east of Jerusalem on the south of the Hill of Corruption--the ones Solomon king of Israel had built for Ashtoreth the vile goddess of the Sidonians, for Chemosh the vile god of Moab, and for Molek the detestable god of the people of Ammon.

2Ki 23:16  Then Josiah looked around, and when he saw the tombs that were there on the hillside, he had the bones removed from them and burned on the altar to defile it, in accordance with the word of the LORD proclaimed by the man of God who foretold these things.

2Ki 23:17  The king asked, "What is that tombstone I see?" The people of the city said, "It marks the tomb of the man of God who came from Judah and pronounced against the altar of Bethel the very things you have done to it."

2Ki 23:21  The king gave this order to all the people: "Celebrate the Passover to the LORD your God, as it is written in this Book of the Covenant."

1Ch 4:10  Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, "Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain." And God granted his request.

1Ch 5:20  They were helped in fighting them, and God delivered the Hagrites and all their allies into their hands, because they cried out to him during the battle. He answered their prayers, because they trusted in him.

1Ch 5:22  and many others fell slain, because the battle was God's. And they occupied the land until the exile.

1Ch 5:25  But they were unfaithful to the God of their ancestors and prostituted themselves to the gods of the peoples of the land, whom God had destroyed before them.

1Ch 5:26  So the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria (that is, Tiglath-Pileser king of Assyria), who took the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh into exile. He took them to Halah, Habor, Hara and the river of Gozan, where they are to this day.

1Ch 6:48  Their fellow Levites were assigned to all the other duties of the tabernacle, the house of God.

1Ch 6:49  But Aaron and his descendants were the ones who presented offerings on the altar of burnt offering and on the altar of incense in connection with all that was done in the Most Holy Place, making atonement for Israel, in accordance with all that Moses the servant of God had commanded.

1Ch 9:11  Azariah son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub, the official in charge of the house of God;

1Ch 9:13  The priests, who were heads of families, numbered 1,760. They were able men, responsible for ministering in the house of God.

1Ch 9:26  But the four principal gatekeepers, who were Levites, were entrusted with the responsibility for the rooms and treasuries in the house of God.

1Ch 9:27  They would spend the night stationed around the house of God, because they had to guard it; and they had charge of the key for opening it each morning.

1Ch 11:2  In the past, even while Saul was king, you were the one who led Israel on their military campaigns. And the LORD your God said to you, 'You will shepherd my people Israel, and you will become their ruler.'"

1Ch 11:19  "God forbid that I should do this!" he said. "Should I drink the blood of these men who went at the risk of their lives?" Because they risked their lives to bring it back, David would not drink it. Such were the exploits of the three mighty warriors.

1Ch 12:17  David went out to meet them and said to them, "If you have come to me in peace to help me, I am ready for you to join me. But if you have come to betray me to my enemies when my hands are free from violence, may the God of our ancestors see it and judge you."

1Ch 12:18  Then the Spirit came on Amasai, chief of the Thirty, and he said: "We are yours, David! We are with you, son of Jesse! Success, success to you, and success to those who help you, for your God will help you." So David received them and made them leaders of his raiding bands.

1Ch 12:22  Day after day men came to help David, until he had a great army, like the army of God.

1Ch 13:2  He then said to the whole assembly of Israel, "If it seems good to you and if it is the will of the LORD our God, let us send word far and wide to the rest of our people throughout the territories of Israel, and also to the priests and Levites who are with them in their towns and pasturelands, to come and join us.

1Ch 13:3  Let us bring the ark of our God back to us, for we did not inquire of it during the reign of Saul."

1Ch 13:5  So David assembled all Israel, from the Shihor River in Egypt to Lebo Hamath, to bring the ark of God from Kiriath Jearim.

1Ch 13:6  David and all Israel went to Baalah of Judah (Kiriath Jearim) to bring up from there the ark of God the LORD, who is enthroned between the cherubim--the ark that is called by the Name.

1Ch 13:7  They moved the ark of God from Abinadab's house on a new cart, with Uzzah and Ahio guiding it.

1Ch 13:8  David and all the Israelites were celebrating with all their might before God, with songs and with harps, lyres, timbrels, cymbals and trumpets.

1Ch 13:10  The LORD's anger burned against Uzzah, and he struck him down because he had put his hand on the ark. So he died there before God.

1Ch 13:12  David was afraid of God that day and asked, "How can I ever bring the ark of God to me?"

1Ch 13:14  The ark of God remained with the family of Obed-Edom in his house for three months, and the LORD blessed his household and everything he had.

1Ch 14:10  so David inquired of God: "Shall I go and attack the Philistines? Will you deliver them into my hands?" The LORD answered him, "Go, I will deliver them into your hands."

1Ch 14:11  So David and his men went up to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them. He said, "As waters break out, God has broken out against my enemies by my hand." So that place was called Baal Perazim.

1Ch 14:14  so David inquired of God again, and God answered him, "Do not go directly after them, but circle around them and attack them in front of the poplar trees.

1Ch 14:15  As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the poplar trees, move out to battle, because that will mean God has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army."

1Ch 14:16  So David did as God commanded him, and they struck down the Philistine army, all the way from Gibeon to Gezer.

1Ch 15:1  After David had constructed buildings for himself in the City of David, he prepared a place for the ark of God and pitched a tent for it.

1Ch 15:2  Then David said, "No one but the Levites may carry the ark of God, because the LORD chose them to carry the ark of the LORD and to minister before him forever."

1Ch 15:12  He said to them, "You are the heads of the Levitical families; you and your fellow Levites are to consecrate yourselves and bring up the ark of the LORD, the God of Israel, to the place I have prepared for it.

1Ch 15:13  It was because you, the Levites, did not bring it up the first time that the LORD our God broke out in anger against us. We did not inquire of him about how to do it in the prescribed way."

1Ch 15:14  So the priests and Levites consecrated themselves in order to bring up the ark of the LORD, the God of Israel.

1Ch 15:15  And the Levites carried the ark of God with the poles on their shoulders, as Moses had commanded in accordance with the word of the LORD.

1Ch 15:24  Shebaniah, Joshaphat, Nethanel, Amasai, Zechariah, Benaiah and Eliezer the priests were to blow trumpets before the ark of God. Obed-Edom and Jehiah were also to be doorkeepers for the ark.

1Ch 15:26  Because God had helped the Levites who were carrying the ark of the covenant of the LORD, seven bulls and seven rams were sacrificed.

1Ch 16:1  They brought the ark of God and set it inside the tent that David had pitched for it, and they presented burnt offerings and fellowship offerings before God.

1Ch 16:4  He appointed some of the Levites to minister before the ark of the LORD, to extol, thank, and praise the LORD, the God of Israel:

1Ch 16:6  and Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests were to blow the trumpets regularly before the ark of the covenant of God.

1Ch 16:14  He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.

1Ch 16:35  Cry out, "Save us, God our Savior; gather us and deliver us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name, and glory in your praise."

1Ch 16:36  Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Then all the people said "Amen" and "Praise the LORD."

1Ch 17:2  Nathan replied to David, "Whatever you have in mind, do it, for God is with you."

1Ch 17:3  But that night the word of God came to Nathan, saying:

1Ch 17:16  Then King David went in and sat before the LORD, and he said: "Who am I, LORD God, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far?

1Ch 17:17  And as if this were not enough in your sight, my God, you have spoken about the future of the house of your servant. You, LORD God, have looked on me as though I were the most exalted of men.

1Ch 17:20  "There is no one like you, LORD, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.

1Ch 17:21  And who is like your people Israel--the one nation on earth whose God went out to redeem a people for himself, and to make a name for yourself, and to perform great and awesome wonders by driving out nations from before your people, whom you redeemed from Egypt?

1Ch 17:22  You made your people Israel your very own forever, and you, LORD, have become their God.

1Ch 17:24  so that it will be established and that your name will be great forever. Then people will say, 'The LORD Almighty, the God over Israel, is Israel's God!' And the house of your servant David will be established before you.

1Ch 17:25  "You, my God, have revealed to your servant that you will build a house for him. So your servant has found courage to pray to you.

1Ch 17:26  You, LORD, are God! You have promised these good things to your servant.

1Ch 19:13  Be strong, and let us fight bravely for our people and the cities of our God. The LORD will do what is good in his sight."

1Ch 21:7  This command was also evil in the sight of God; so he punished Israel.

1Ch 21:8  Then David said to God, "I have sinned greatly by doing this. Now, I beg you, take away the guilt of your servant. I have done a very foolish thing."

1Ch 21:15  And God sent an angel to destroy Jerusalem. But as the angel was doing so, the LORD saw it and relented concerning the disaster and said to the angel who was destroying the people, "Enough! Withdraw your hand." The angel of the LORD was then standing at the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.

1Ch 21:17  David said to God, "Was it not I who ordered the fighting men to be counted? I, the shepherd, have sinned and done wrong. These are but sheep. What have they done? LORD my God, let your hand fall on me and my family, but do not let this plague remain on your people."

1Ch 21:30  But David could not go before it to inquire of God, because he was afraid of the sword of the angel of the LORD.

1Ch 22:1  Then David said, "The house of the LORD God is to be here, and also the altar of burnt offering for Israel."

1Ch 22:2  So David gave orders to assemble the foreigners residing in Israel, and from among them he appointed stonecutters to prepare dressed stone for building the house of God.

1Ch 22:6  Then he called for his son Solomon and charged him to build a house for the LORD, the God of Israel.

1Ch 22:7  David said to Solomon: "My son, I had it in my heart to build a house for the Name of the LORD my God.

1Ch 22:11  "Now, my son, the LORD be with you, and may you have success and build the house of the LORD your God, as he said you would.

1Ch 22:12  May the LORD give you discretion and understanding when he puts you in command over Israel, so that you may keep the law of the LORD your God.

1Ch 22:18  He said to them, "Is not the LORD your God with you? And has he not granted you rest on every side? For he has given the inhabitants of the land into my hands, and the land is subject to the LORD and to his people.

1Ch 22:19  Now devote your heart and soul to seeking the LORD your God. Begin to build the sanctuary of the LORD God, so that you may bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD and the sacred articles belonging to God into the temple that will be built for the Name of the LORD."

1Ch 23:14  The sons of Moses the man of God were counted as part of the tribe of Levi.

1Ch 23:25  For David had said, "Since the LORD, the God of Israel, has granted rest to his people and has come to dwell in Jerusalem forever,

1Ch 23:28  The duty of the Levites was to help Aaron's descendants in the service of the temple of the LORD: to be in charge of the courtyards, the side rooms, the purification of all sacred things and the performance of other duties at the house of God.

1Ch 24:5  They divided them impartially by casting lots, for there were officials of the sanctuary and officials of God among the descendants of both Eleazar and Ithamar.

1Ch 24:19  This was their appointed order of ministering when they entered the temple of the LORD, according to the regulations prescribed for them by their ancestor Aaron, as the LORD, the God of Israel, had commanded him.

1Ch 25:5  (All these were sons of Heman the king's seer. They were given him through the promises of God to exalt him. God gave Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.)

1Ch 25:6  All these men were under the supervision of their father for the music of the temple of the LORD, with cymbals, lyres and harps, for the ministry at the house of God. Asaph, Jeduthun and Heman were under the supervision of the king.

1Ch 26:5  Ammiel the sixth, Issachar the seventh and Peullethai the eighth. (For God had blessed Obed-Edom.)

1Ch 26:20  Their fellow Levites were in charge of the treasuries of the house of God and the treasuries for the dedicated things.

1Ch 26:32  Jeriah had twenty-seven hundred relatives, who were able men and heads of families, and King David put them in charge of the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh for every matter pertaining to God and for the affairs of the king.

1Ch 27:24  Joab son of Zeruiah began to count the men but did not finish. God's wrath came on Israel on account of this numbering, and the number was not entered in the book of the annals of King David.

1Ch 28:2  King David rose to his feet and said: "Listen to me, my fellow Israelites, my people. I had it in my heart to build a house as a place of rest for the ark of the covenant of the LORD, for the footstool of our God, and I made plans to build it.

1Ch 28:3  But God said to me, 'You are not to build a house for my Name, because you are a warrior and have shed blood.'

1Ch 28:4  "Yet the LORD, the God of Israel, chose me from my whole family to be king over Israel forever. He chose Judah as leader, and from the tribe of Judah he chose my family, and from my father's sons he was pleased to make me king over all Israel.

1Ch 28:8  "So now I charge you in the sight of all Israel and of the assembly of the LORD, and in the hearing of our God: Be careful to follow all the commands of the LORD your God, that you may possess this good land and pass it on as an inheritance to your descendants forever.

1Ch 28:9  "And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the LORD searches every heart and understands every desire and every thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever.

1Ch 28:12  He gave him the plans of all that the Spirit had put in his mind for the courts of the temple of the LORD and all the surrounding rooms, for the treasuries of the temple of God and for the treasuries for the dedicated things.

1Ch 28:20  David also said to Solomon his son, "Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the LORD is finished.

1Ch 28:21  The divisions of the priests and Levites are ready for all the work on the temple of God, and every willing person skilled in any craft will help you in all the work. The officials and all the people will obey your every command."

1Ch 29:1  Then King David said to the whole assembly: "My son Solomon, the one whom God has chosen, is young and inexperienced. The task is great, because this palatial structure is not for man but for the LORD God.

1Ch 29:2  With all my resources I have provided for the temple of my God--gold for the gold work, silver for the silver, bronze for the bronze, iron for the iron and wood for the wood, as well as onyx for the settings, turquoise, stones of various colors, and all kinds of fine stone and marble--all of these in large quantities.

1Ch 29:3  Besides, in my devotion to the temple of my God I now give my personal treasures of gold and silver for the temple of my God, over and above everything I have provided for this holy temple:

1Ch 29:7  They gave toward the work on the temple of God five thousand talents and ten thousand darics of gold, ten thousand talents of silver, eighteen thousand talents of bronze and a hundred thousand talents of iron.

1Ch 29:10  David praised the LORD in the presence of the whole assembly, saying, "Praise be to you, LORD, the God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting.

1Ch 29:13  Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.

1Ch 29:16  LORD our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a temple for your Holy Name comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you.

1Ch 29:17  I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity. All these things I have given willingly and with honest intent. And now I have seen with joy how willingly your people who are here have given to you.

1Ch 29:18  LORD, the God of our fathers Abraham, Isaac and Israel, keep these desires and thoughts in the hearts of your people forever, and keep their hearts loyal to you.

1Ch 29:20  Then David said to the whole assembly, "Praise the LORD your God." So they all praised the LORD, the God of their fathers; they bowed down, prostrating themselves before the LORD and the king.

2Ch 1:1  Solomon son of David established himself firmly over his kingdom, for the LORD his God was with him and made him exceedingly great.

2Ch 1:3  and Solomon and the whole assembly went to the high place at Gibeon, for God's tent of meeting was there, which Moses the LORD's servant had made in the wilderness.

2Ch 1:4  Now David had brought up the ark of God from Kiriath Jearim to the place he had prepared for it, because he had pitched a tent for it in Jerusalem.

2Ch 1:7  That night God appeared to Solomon and said to him, "Ask for whatever you want me to give you."

2Ch 1:8  Solomon answered God, "You have shown great kindness to David my father and have made me king in his place.

2Ch 1:9  Now, LORD God, let your promise to my father David be confirmed, for you have made me king over a people who are as numerous as the dust of the earth.

2Ch 1:11  God said to Solomon, "Since this is your heart's desire and you have not asked for wealth, possessions or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king,

2Ch 2:4  Now I am about to build a temple for the Name of the LORD my God and to dedicate it to him for burning fragrant incense before him, for setting out the consecrated bread regularly, and for making burnt offerings every morning and evening and on the Sabbaths, at the New Moons and at the appointed festivals of the LORD our God. This is a lasting ordinance for Israel.

2Ch 2:5  "The temple I am going to build will be great, because our God is greater than all other gods.

2Ch 2:12  And Hiram added: "Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, who made heaven and earth! He has given King David a wise son, endowed with intelligence and discernment, who will build a temple for the LORD and a palace for himself.

2Ch 3:3  The foundation Solomon laid for building the temple of God was sixty cubits long and twenty cubits wide (using the cubit of the old standard).

2Ch 4:11  And Huram also made the pots and shovels and sprinkling bowls. So Huram finished the work he had undertaken for King Solomon in the temple of God:

2Ch 4:19  Solomon also made all the furnishings that were in God's temple: the golden altar; the tables on which was the bread of the Presence;

2Ch 5:1  When all the work Solomon had done for the temple of the LORD was finished, he brought in the things his father David had dedicated--the silver and gold and all the furnishings--and he placed them in the treasuries of God's temple.

2Ch 5:14  and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the temple of God.

2Ch 6:4  Then he said: "Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, who with his hands has fulfilled what he promised with his mouth to my father David. For he said,

2Ch 6:7  "My father David had it in his heart to build a temple for the Name of the LORD, the God of Israel.

2Ch 6:10  "The LORD has kept the promise he made. I have succeeded David my father and now I sit on the throne of Israel, just as the LORD promised, and I have built the temple for the Name of the LORD, the God of Israel.

2Ch 6:14  He said: "LORD, the God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven or on earth--you who keep your covenant of love with your servants who continue wholeheartedly in your way.

2Ch 6:16  "Now, LORD, the God of Israel, keep for your servant David my father the promises you made to him when you said, 'You shall never fail to have a successor to sit before me on the throne of Israel, if only your descendants are careful in all they do to walk before me according to my law, as you have done.'

2Ch 6:17  And now, LORD, the God of Israel, let your word that you promised your servant David come true.

2Ch 6:18  "But will God really dwell on earth with humans? The heavens, even the highest heavens, cannot contain you. How much less this temple I have built!

2Ch 6:19  Yet, LORD my God, give attention to your servant's prayer and his plea for mercy. Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence.

2Ch 6:40  "Now, my God, may your eyes be open and your ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.

2Ch 6:41  "Now arise, LORD God, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might. May your priests, LORD God, be clothed with salvation, may your faithful people rejoice in your goodness.

2Ch 6:42  LORD God, do not reject your anointed one. Remember the great love promised to David your servant."

2Ch 7:5  And King Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty-two thousand head of cattle and a hundred and twenty thousand sheep and goats. So the king and all the people dedicated the temple of God.

2Ch 7:22  People will answer, 'Because they have forsaken the LORD, the God of their ancestors, who brought them out of Egypt, and have embraced other gods, worshiping and serving them--that is why he brought all this disaster on them.'"

2Ch 8:14  In keeping with the ordinance of his father David, he appointed the divisions of the priests for their duties, and the Levites to lead the praise and to assist the priests according to each day's requirement. He also appointed the gatekeepers by divisions for the various gates, because this was what David the man of God had ordered.

2Ch 9:8  Praise be to the LORD your God, who has delighted in you and placed you on his throne as king to rule for the LORD your God. Because of the love of your God for Israel and his desire to uphold them forever, he has made you king over them, to maintain justice and righteousness."

2Ch 9:23  All the kings of the earth sought audience with Solomon to hear the wisdom God had put in his heart.

2Ch 10:15  So the king did not listen to the people, for this turn of events was from God, to fulfill the word the LORD had spoken to Jeroboam son of Nebat through Ahijah the Shilonite.

2Ch 11:2  But this word of the LORD came to Shemaiah the man of God:

2Ch 11:16  Those from every tribe of Israel who set their hearts on seeking the LORD, the God of Israel, followed the Levites to Jerusalem to offer sacrifices to the LORD, the God of their ancestors.

2Ch 13:5  Don't you know that the LORD, the God of Israel, has given the kingship of Israel to David and his descendants forever by a covenant of salt?

2Ch 13:10  "As for us, the LORD is our God, and we have not forsaken him. The priests who serve the LORD are sons of Aaron, and the Levites assist them.

2Ch 13:11  Every morning and evening they present burnt offerings and fragrant incense to the LORD. They set out the bread on the ceremonially clean table and light the lamps on the gold lampstand every evening. We are observing the requirements of the LORD our God. But you have forsaken him.

2Ch 13:12  God is with us; he is our leader. His priests with their trumpets will sound the battle cry against you. People of Israel, do not fight against the LORD, the God of your ancestors, for you will not succeed."

2Ch 13:15  and the men of Judah raised the battle cry. At the sound of their battle cry, God routed Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah.

2Ch 13:16  The Israelites fled before Judah, and God delivered them into their hands.

2Ch 13:18  The Israelites were subdued on that occasion, and the people of Judah were victorious because they relied on the LORD, the God of their ancestors.

2Ch 14:2  Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the LORD his God.

2Ch 14:4  He commanded Judah to seek the LORD, the God of their ancestors, and to obey his laws and commands.

2Ch 14:7  "Let us build up these towns," he said to Judah, "and put walls around them, with towers, gates and bars. The land is still ours, because we have sought the LORD our God; we sought him and he has given us rest on every side." So they built and prospered.

2Ch 14:11  Then Asa called to the LORD his God and said, "LORD, there is no one like you to help the powerless against the mighty. Help us, LORD our God, for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this vast army. LORD, you are our God; do not let mere mortals prevail against you."

2Ch 15:1  The Spirit of God came on Azariah son of Oded.

2Ch 15:3  For a long time Israel was without the true God, without a priest to teach and without the law.

2Ch 15:4  But in their distress they turned to the LORD, the God of Israel, and sought him, and he was found by them.

2Ch 15:6  One nation was being crushed by another and one city by another, because God was troubling them with every kind of distress.

2Ch 15:9  Then he assembled all Judah and Benjamin and the people from Ephraim, Manasseh and Simeon who had settled among them, for large numbers had come over to him from Israel when they saw that the LORD his God was with him.

2Ch 15:12  They entered into a covenant to seek the LORD, the God of their ancestors, with all their heart and soul.

2Ch 15:13  All who would not seek the LORD, the God of Israel, were to be put to death, whether small or great, man or woman.

2Ch 15:15  All Judah rejoiced about the oath because they had sworn it wholeheartedly. They sought God eagerly, and he was found by them. So the LORD gave them rest on every side.

2Ch 15:18  He brought into the temple of God the silver and gold and the articles that he and his father had dedicated.

2Ch 16:7  At that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah and said to him: "Because you relied on the king of Aram and not on the LORD your God, the army of the king of Aram has escaped from your hand.

2Ch 17:4  but sought the God of his father and followed his commands rather than the practices of Israel.

2Ch 18:5  So the king of Israel brought together the prophets--four hundred men--and asked them, "Shall we go to war against Ramoth Gilead, or shall I not?" "Go," they answered, "for God will give it into the king's hand."

2Ch 18:13  But Micaiah said, "As surely as the LORD lives, I can tell him only what my God says."

2Ch 18:31  When the chariot commanders saw Jehoshaphat, they thought, "This is the king of Israel." So they turned to attack him, but Jehoshaphat cried out, and the LORD helped him. God drew them away from him,

2Ch 19:3  There is, however, some good in you, for you have rid the land of the Asherah poles and have set your heart on seeking God."

2Ch 19:4  Jehoshaphat lived in Jerusalem, and he went out again among the people from Beersheba to the hill country of Ephraim and turned them back to the LORD, the God of their ancestors.

2Ch 19:7  Now let the fear of the LORD be on you. Judge carefully, for with the LORD our God there is no injustice or partiality or bribery."

2Ch 20:6  and said: "LORD, the God of our ancestors, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you.

2Ch 20:7  Our God, did you not drive out the inhabitants of this land before your people Israel and give it forever to the descendants of Abraham your friend?

2Ch 20:12  Our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you."

2Ch 20:15  He said: "Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the LORD says to you: 'Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's.

2Ch 20:19  Then some Levites from the Kohathites and Korahites stood up and praised the LORD, the God of Israel, with a very loud voice.

2Ch 20:20  Early in the morning they left for the Desert of Tekoa. As they set out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, "Listen to me, Judah and people of Jerusalem! Have faith in the LORD your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful."

2Ch 20:29  The fear of God came on all the surrounding kingdoms when they heard how the LORD had fought against the enemies of Israel.

2Ch 20:30  And the kingdom of Jehoshaphat was at peace, for his God had given him rest on every side.

2Ch 20:33  The high places, however, were not removed, and the people still had not set their hearts on the God of their ancestors.

2Ch 21:10  To this day Edom has been in rebellion against Judah. Libnah revolted at the same time, because Jehoram had forsaken the LORD, the God of his ancestors.

2Ch 21:12  Jehoram received a letter from Elijah the prophet, which said: "This is what the LORD, the God of your father David, says: 'You have not followed the ways of your father Jehoshaphat or of Asa king of Judah.

2Ch 22:7  Through Ahaziah's visit to Joram, God brought about Ahaziah's downfall. When Ahaziah arrived, he went out with Joram to meet Jehu son of Nimshi, whom the LORD had anointed to destroy the house of Ahab.

2Ch 22:12  He remained hidden with them at the temple of God for six years while Athaliah ruled the land.

2Ch 23:3  the whole assembly made a covenant with the king at the temple of God. Jehoiada said to them, "The king's son shall reign, as the LORD promised concerning the descendants of David.

2Ch 23:9  Then he gave the commanders of units of a hundred the spears and the large and small shields that had belonged to King David and that were in the temple of God.

2Ch 24:5  He called together the priests and Levites and said to them, "Go to the towns of Judah and collect the money due annually from all Israel, to repair the temple of your God. Do it now." But the Levites did not act at once.

2Ch 24:7  Now the sons of that wicked woman Athaliah had broken into the temple of God and had used even its sacred objects for the Baals.

2Ch 24:9  A proclamation was then issued in Judah and Jerusalem that they should bring to the LORD the tax that Moses the servant of God had required of Israel in the wilderness.

2Ch 24:13  The men in charge of the work were diligent, and the repairs progressed under them. They rebuilt the temple of God according to its original design and reinforced it.

2Ch 24:16  He was buried with the kings in the City of David, because of the good he had done in Israel for God and his temple.

2Ch 24:18  They abandoned the temple of the LORD, the God of their ancestors, and worshiped Asherah poles and idols. Because of their guilt, God's anger came on Judah and Jerusalem.

2Ch 24:20  Then the Spirit of God came on Zechariah son of Jehoiada the priest. He stood before the people and said, "This is what God says: 'Why do you disobey the LORD's commands? You will not prosper. Because you have forsaken the LORD, he has forsaken you.'"

2Ch 24:24  Although the Aramean army had come with only a few men, the LORD delivered into their hands a much larger army. Because Judah had forsaken the LORD, the God of their ancestors, judgment was executed on Joash.

2Ch 24:27  The account of his sons, the many prophecies about him, and the record of the restoration of the temple of God are written in the annotations on the book of the kings. And Amaziah his son succeeded him as king.

2Ch 25:7  But a man of God came to him and said, "Your Majesty, these troops from Israel must not march with you, for the LORD is not with Israel--not with any of the people of Ephraim.

2Ch 25:8  Even if you go and fight courageously in battle, God will overthrow you before the enemy, for God has the power to help or to overthrow."

2Ch 25:9  Amaziah asked the man of God, "But what about the hundred talents I paid for these Israelite troops?" The man of God replied, "The LORD can give you much more than that."

2Ch 25:16  While he was still speaking, the king said to him, "Have we appointed you an adviser to the king? Stop! Why be struck down?" So the prophet stopped but said, "I know that God has determined to destroy you, because you have done this and have not listened to my counsel."

2Ch 25:20  Amaziah, however, would not listen, for God so worked that he might deliver them into the hands of Jehoash, because they sought the gods of Edom.

2Ch 25:24  He took all the gold and silver and all the articles found in the temple of God that had been in the care of Obed-Edom, together with the palace treasures and the hostages, and returned to Samaria.

2Ch 26:5  He sought God during the days of Zechariah, who instructed him in the fear of God. As long as he sought the LORD, God gave him success.

2Ch 26:7  God helped him against the Philistines and against the Arabs who lived in Gur Baal and against the Meunites.

2Ch 26:16  But after Uzziah became powerful, his pride led to his downfall. He was unfaithful to the LORD his God, and entered the temple of the LORD to burn incense on the altar of incense.

2Ch 26:18  They confronted King Uzziah and said, "It is not right for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to the LORD. That is for the priests, the descendants of Aaron, who have been consecrated to burn incense. Leave the sanctuary, for you have been unfaithful; and you will not be honored by the LORD God."

2Ch 27:6  Jotham grew powerful because he walked steadfastly before the LORD his God.

2Ch 28:5  Therefore the LORD his God delivered him into the hands of the king of Aram. The Arameans defeated him and took many of his people as prisoners and brought them to Damascus. He was also given into the hands of the king of Israel, who inflicted heavy casualties on him.

2Ch 28:6  In one day Pekah son of Remaliah killed a hundred and twenty thousand soldiers in Judah--because Judah had forsaken the LORD, the God of their ancestors.

2Ch 28:9  But a prophet of the LORD named Oded was there, and he went out to meet the army when it returned to Samaria. He said to them, "Because the LORD, the God of your ancestors, was angry with Judah, he gave them into your hand. But you have slaughtered them in a rage that reaches to heaven.

2Ch 28:10  And now you intend to make the men and women of Judah and Jerusalem your slaves. But aren't you also guilty of sins against the LORD your God?

2Ch 28:24  Ahaz gathered together the furnishings from the temple of God and cut them in pieces. He shut the doors of the LORD's temple and set up altars at every street corner in Jerusalem.

2Ch 28:25  In every town in Judah he built high places to burn sacrifices to other gods and aroused the anger of the LORD, the God of his ancestors.

2Ch 29:5  and said: "Listen to me, Levites! Consecrate yourselves now and consecrate the temple of the LORD, the God of your ancestors. Remove all defilement from the sanctuary.

2Ch 29:6  Our parents were unfaithful; they did evil in the eyes of the LORD our God and forsook him. They turned their faces away from the LORD's dwelling place and turned their backs on him.

2Ch 29:7  They also shut the doors of the portico and put out the lamps. They did not burn incense or present any burnt offerings at the sanctuary to the God of Israel.

2Ch 29:10  Now I intend to make a covenant with the LORD, the God of Israel, so that his fierce anger will turn away from us.

2Ch 29:36  Hezekiah and all the people rejoiced at what God had brought about for his people, because it was done so quickly.

2Ch 30:1  Hezekiah sent word to all Israel and Judah and also wrote letters to Ephraim and Manasseh, inviting them to come to the temple of the LORD in Jerusalem and celebrate the Passover to the LORD, the God of Israel.

2Ch 30:5  They decided to send a proclamation throughout Israel, from Beersheba to Dan, calling the people to come to Jerusalem and celebrate the Passover to the LORD, the God of Israel. It had not been celebrated in large numbers according to what was written.

2Ch 30:6  At the king's command, couriers went throughout Israel and Judah with letters from the king and from his officials, which read: "People of Israel, return to the LORD, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, that he may return to you who are left, who have escaped from the hand of the kings of Assyria.

2Ch 30:7  Do not be like your parents and your fellow Israelites, who were unfaithful to the LORD, the God of their ancestors, so that he made them an object of horror, as you see.

2Ch 30:8  Do not be stiff-necked, as your ancestors were; submit to the LORD. Come to his sanctuary, which he has consecrated forever. Serve the LORD your God, so that his fierce anger will turn away from you.

2Ch 30:9  If you return to the LORD, then your fellow Israelites and your children will be shown compassion by their captors and will return to this land, for the LORD your God is gracious and compassionate. He will not turn his face from you if you return to him."

2Ch 30:12  Also in Judah the hand of God was on the people to give them unity of mind to carry out what the king and his officials had ordered, following the word of the LORD.

2Ch 30:16  Then they took up their regular positions as prescribed in the Law of Moses the man of God. The priests splashed against the altar the blood handed to them by the Levites.

2Ch 30:19  who sets their heart on seeking God--the LORD, the God of their ancestors--even if they are not clean according to the rules of the sanctuary."

2Ch 30:22  Hezekiah spoke encouragingly to all the Levites, who showed good understanding of the service of the LORD. For the seven days they ate their assigned portion and offered fellowship offerings and praised the LORD, the God of their ancestors.

2Ch 30:27  The priests and the Levites stood to bless the people, and God heard them, for their prayer reached heaven, his holy dwelling place.

2Ch 31:6  The people of Israel and Judah who lived in the towns of Judah also brought a tithe of their herds and flocks and a tithe of the holy things dedicated to the LORD their God, and they piled them in heaps.

2Ch 31:13  Jehiel, Azaziah, Nahath, Asahel, Jerimoth, Jozabad, Eliel, Ismakiah, Mahath and Benaiah were assistants of Konaniah and Shimei his brother. All these served by appointment of King Hezekiah and Azariah the official in charge of the temple of God.

2Ch 31:14  Kore son of Imnah the Levite, keeper of the East Gate, was in charge of the freewill offerings given to God, distributing the contributions made to the LORD and also the consecrated gifts.

2Ch 31:20  This is what Hezekiah did throughout Judah, doing what was good and right and faithful before the LORD his God.

2Ch 31:21  In everything that he undertook in the service of God's temple and in obedience to the law and the commands, he sought his God and worked wholeheartedly. And so he prospered.

2Ch 32:8  With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the LORD our God to help us and to fight our battles." And the people gained confidence from what Hezekiah the king of Judah said.

2Ch 32:11  When Hezekiah says, 'The LORD our God will save us from the hand of the king of Assyria,' he is misleading you, to let you die of hunger and thirst.

2Ch 32:12  Did not Hezekiah himself remove this god's high places and altars, saying to Judah and Jerusalem, 'You must worship before one altar and burn sacrifices on it'?

2Ch 32:14  Who of all the gods of these nations that my predecessors destroyed has been able to save his people from me? How then can your god deliver you from my hand?

2Ch 32:15  Now do not let Hezekiah deceive you and mislead you like this. Do not believe him, for no god of any nation or kingdom has been able to deliver his people from my hand or the hand of my predecessors. How much less will your god deliver you from my hand!"

2Ch 32:16  Sennacherib's officers spoke further against the LORD God and against his servant Hezekiah.

2Ch 32:17  The king also wrote letters ridiculing the LORD, the God of Israel, and saying this against him: "Just as the gods of the peoples of the other lands did not rescue their people from my hand, so the god of Hezekiah will not rescue his people from my hand."

2Ch 32:19  They spoke about the God of Jerusalem as they did about the gods of the other peoples of the world--the work of human hands.

2Ch 32:21  And the LORD sent an angel, who annihilated all the fighting men and the commanders and officers in the camp of the Assyrian king. So he withdrew to his own land in disgrace. And when he went into the temple of his god, some of his sons, his own flesh and blood, cut him down with the sword.

2Ch 32:29  He built villages and acquired great numbers of flocks and herds, for God had given him very great riches.

2Ch 32:31  But when envoys were sent by the rulers of Babylon to ask him about the miraculous sign that had occurred in the land, God left him to test him and to know everything that was in his heart.

2Ch 33:7  He took the image he had made and put it in God's temple, of which God had said to David and to his son Solomon, "In this temple and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put my Name forever.

2Ch 33:12  In his distress he sought the favor of the LORD his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his ancestors.

2Ch 33:13  And when he prayed to him, the LORD was moved by his entreaty and listened to his plea; so he brought him back to Jerusalem and to his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD is God.

2Ch 33:16  Then he restored the altar of the LORD and sacrificed fellowship offerings and thank offerings on it, and told Judah to serve the LORD, the God of Israel.

2Ch 33:17  The people, however, continued to sacrifice at the high places, but only to the LORD their God.

2Ch 33:18  The other events of Manasseh's reign, including his prayer to his God and the words the seers spoke to him in the name of the LORD, the God of Israel, are written in the annals of the kings of Israel.

2Ch 33:19  His prayer and how God was moved by his entreaty, as well as all his sins and unfaithfulness, and the sites where he built high places and set up Asherah poles and idols before he humbled himself--all these are written in the records of the seers.

2Ch 34:3  In the eighth year of his reign, while he was still young, he began to seek the God of his father David. In his twelfth year he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem of high places, Asherah poles and idols.

2Ch 34:8  In the eighteenth year of Josiah's reign, to purify the land and the temple, he sent Shaphan son of Azaliah and Maaseiah the ruler of the city, with Joah son of Joahaz, the recorder, to repair the temple of the LORD his God.

2Ch 34:9  They went to Hilkiah the high priest and gave him the money that had been brought into the temple of God, which the Levites who were the gatekeepers had collected from the people of Manasseh, Ephraim and the entire remnant of Israel and from all the people of Judah and Benjamin and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

2Ch 34:23  She said to them, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Tell the man who sent you to me,

2Ch 34:26  Tell the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of the LORD, 'This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says concerning the words you heard:

2Ch 34:27  Because your heart was responsive and you humbled yourself before God when you heard what he spoke against this place and its people, and because you humbled yourself before me and tore your robes and wept in my presence, I have heard you, declares the LORD.

2Ch 34:32  Then he had everyone in Jerusalem and Benjamin pledge themselves to it; the people of Jerusalem did this in accordance with the covenant of God, the God of their ancestors.

2Ch 34:33  Josiah removed all the detestable idols from all the territory belonging to the Israelites, and he had all who were present in Israel serve the LORD their God. As long as he lived, they did not fail to follow the LORD, the God of their ancestors.

2Ch 35:3  He said to the Levites, who instructed all Israel and who had been consecrated to the LORD: "Put the sacred ark in the temple that Solomon son of David king of Israel built. It is not to be carried about on your shoulders. Now serve the LORD your God and his people Israel.

2Ch 35:8  His officials also contributed voluntarily to the people and the priests and Levites. Hilkiah, Zechariah and Jehiel, the officials in charge of God's temple, gave the priests twenty-six hundred Passover offerings and three hundred cattle.

2Ch 35:21  But Necho sent messengers to him, saying, "What quarrel is there, king of Judah, between you and me? It is not you I am attacking at this time, but the house with which I am at war. God has told me to hurry; so stop opposing God, who is with me, or he will destroy you."

2Ch 35:22  Josiah, however, would not turn away from him, but disguised himself to engage him in battle. He would not listen to what Necho had said at God's command but went to fight him on the plain of Megiddo.

2Ch 36:5  Jehoiakim was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem eleven years. He did evil in the eyes of the LORD his God.

2Ch 36:12  He did evil in the eyes of the LORD his God and did not humble himself before Jeremiah the prophet, who spoke the word of the LORD.

2Ch 36:13  He also rebelled against King Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him take an oath in God's name. He became stiff-necked and hardened his heart and would not turn to the LORD, the God of Israel.

2Ch 36:15  The LORD, the God of their ancestors, sent word to them through his messengers again and again, because he had pity on his people and on his dwelling place.

2Ch 36:16  But they mocked God's messengers, despised his words and scoffed at his prophets until the wrath of the LORD was aroused against his people and there was no remedy.

2Ch 36:17  He brought up against them the king of the Babylonians, who killed their young men with the sword in the sanctuary, and did not spare young men or young women, the elderly or the infirm. God gave them all into the hands of Nebuchadnezzar.

2Ch 36:18  He carried to Babylon all the articles from the temple of God, both large and small, and the treasures of the LORD's temple and the treasures of the king and his officials.

2Ch 36:19  They set fire to God's temple and broke down the wall of Jerusalem; they burned all the palaces and destroyed everything of value there.

2Ch 36:23  "This is what Cyrus king of Persia says: "'The LORD, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah. Any of his people among you may go up, and may the LORD their God be with them.'"

Ezr 1:2  "This is what Cyrus king of Persia says: "'The LORD, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah.

Ezr 1:3  Any of his people among you may go up to Jerusalem in Judah and build the temple of the LORD, the God of Israel, the God who is in Jerusalem, and may their God be with them.

Ezr 1:4  And in any locality where survivors may now be living, the people are to provide them with silver and gold, with goods and livestock, and with freewill offerings for the temple of God in Jerusalem.'"

Ezr 1:5  Then the family heads of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests and Levites--everyone whose heart God had moved--prepared to go up and build the house of the LORD in Jerusalem.

Ezr 1:7  Moreover, King Cyrus brought out the articles belonging to the temple of the LORD, which Nebuchadnezzar had carried away from Jerusalem and had placed in the temple of his god.

Ezr 2:68  When they arrived at the house of the LORD in Jerusalem, some of the heads of the families gave freewill offerings toward the rebuilding of the house of God on its site.

Ezr 3:2  Then Joshua son of Jozadak and his fellow priests and Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel and his associates began to build the altar of the God of Israel to sacrifice burnt offerings on it, in accordance with what is written in the Law of Moses the man of God.

Ezr 3:8  In the second month of the second year after their arrival at the house of God in Jerusalem, Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, Joshua son of Jozadak and the rest of the people (the priests and the Levites and all who had returned from the captivity to Jerusalem) began the work. They appointed Levites twenty years old and older to supervise the building of the house of the LORD.

Ezr 3:9  Joshua and his sons and brothers and Kadmiel and his sons (descendants of Hodaviah) and the sons of Henadad and their sons and brothers--all Levites--joined together in supervising those working on the house of God.

Ezr 4:1  When the enemies of Judah and Benjamin heard that the exiles were building a temple for the LORD, the God of Israel,

Ezr 4:2  they came to Zerubbabel and to the heads of the families and said, "Let us help you build because, like you, we seek your God and have been sacrificing to him since the time of Esarhaddon king of Assyria, who brought us here."

Ezr 4:3  But Zerubbabel, Joshua and the rest of the heads of the families of Israel answered, "You have no part with us in building a temple to our God. We alone will build it for the LORD, the God of Israel, as King Cyrus, the king of Persia, commanded us."

Ezr 4:24  Thus the work on the house of God in Jerusalem came to a standstill until the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia.

Ezr 5:1  Now Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the prophet, a descendant of Iddo, prophesied to the Jews in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, who was over them.

Ezr 5:2  Then Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel and Joshua son of Jozadak set to work to rebuild the house of God in Jerusalem. And the prophets of God were with them, supporting them.

Ezr 5:5  But the eye of their God was watching over the elders of the Jews, and they were not stopped until a report could go to Darius and his written reply be received.

Ezr 5:8  The king should know that we went to the district of Judah, to the temple of the great God. The people are building it with large stones and placing the timbers in the walls. The work is being carried on with diligence and is making rapid progress under their direction.

Ezr 5:11  This is the answer they gave us: "We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and we are rebuilding the temple that was built many years ago, one that a great king of Israel built and finished.

Ezr 5:12  But because our ancestors angered the God of heaven, he gave them into the hands of Nebuchadnezzar the Chaldean, king of Babylon, who destroyed this temple and deported the people to Babylon.

Ezr 5:13  "However, in the first year of Cyrus king of Babylon, King Cyrus issued a decree to rebuild this house of God.

Ezr 5:14  He even removed from the temple of Babylon the gold and silver articles of the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar had taken from the temple in Jerusalem and brought to the temple in Babylon. Then King Cyrus gave them to a man named Sheshbazzar, whom he had appointed governor,

Ezr 5:15  and he told him, 'Take these articles and go and deposit them in the temple in Jerusalem. And rebuild the house of God on its site.'

Ezr 5:16  "So this Sheshbazzar came and laid the foundations of the house of God in Jerusalem. From that day to the present it has been under construction but is not yet finished."

Ezr 5:17  Now if it pleases the king, let a search be made in the royal archives of Babylon to see if King Cyrus did in fact issue a decree to rebuild this house of God in Jerusalem. Then let the king send us his decision in this matter.

Ezr 6:3  In the first year of King Cyrus, the king issued a decree concerning the temple of God in Jerusalem: Let the temple be rebuilt as a place to present sacrifices, and let its foundations be laid. It is to be sixty cubits high and sixty cubits wide,

Ezr 6:5  Also, the gold and silver articles of the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar took from the temple in Jerusalem and brought to Babylon, are to be returned to their places in the temple in Jerusalem; they are to be deposited in the house of God.

Ezr 6:7  Do not interfere with the work on this temple of God. Let the governor of the Jews and the Jewish elders rebuild this house of God on its site.

Ezr 6:8  Moreover, I hereby decree what you are to do for these elders of the Jews in the construction of this house of God: Their expenses are to be fully paid out of the royal treasury, from the revenues of Trans-Euphrates, so that the work will not stop.

Ezr 6:9  Whatever is needed--young bulls, rams, male lambs for burnt offerings to the God of heaven, and wheat, salt, wine and olive oil, as requested by the priests in Jerusalem--must be given them daily without fail,

Ezr 6:10  so that they may offer sacrifices pleasing to the God of heaven and pray for the well-being of the king and his sons.

Ezr 6:12  May God, who has caused his Name to dwell there, overthrow any king or people who lifts a hand to change this decree or to destroy this temple in Jerusalem. I Darius have decreed it. Let it be carried out with diligence.

Ezr 6:14  So the elders of the Jews continued to build and prosper under the preaching of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah, a descendant of Iddo. They finished building the temple according to the command of the God of Israel and the decrees of Cyrus, Darius and Artaxerxes, kings of Persia.

Ezr 6:16  Then the people of Israel--the priests, the Levites and the rest of the exiles--celebrated the dedication of the house of God with joy.

Ezr 6:17  For the dedication of this house of God they offered a hundred bulls, two hundred rams, four hundred male lambs and, as a sin offering for all Israel, twelve male goats, one for each of the tribes of Israel.

Ezr 6:18  And they installed the priests in their divisions and the Levites in their groups for the service of God at Jerusalem, according to what is written in the Book of Moses.

Ezr 6:21  So the Israelites who had returned from the exile ate it, together with all who had separated themselves from the unclean practices of their Gentile neighbors in order to seek the LORD, the God of Israel.

Ezr 6:22  For seven days they celebrated with joy the Festival of Unleavened Bread, because the LORD had filled them with joy by changing the attitude of the king of Assyria so that he assisted them in the work on the house of God, the God of Israel.

Ezr 7:6  this Ezra came up from Babylon. He was a teacher well versed in the Law of Moses, which the LORD, the God of Israel, had given. The king had granted him everything he asked, for the hand of the LORD his God was on him.

Ezr 7:9  He had begun his journey from Babylon on the first day of the first month, and he arrived in Jerusalem on the first day of the fifth month, for the gracious hand of his God was on him.

Ezr 7:12  Artaxerxes, king of kings, To Ezra the priest, teacher of the Law of the God of heaven: Greetings.

Ezr 7:14  You are sent by the king and his seven advisers to inquire about Judah and Jerusalem with regard to the Law of your God, which is in your hand.

Ezr 7:15  Moreover, you are to take with you the silver and gold that the king and his advisers have freely given to the God of Israel, whose dwelling is in Jerusalem,

Ezr 7:16  together with all the silver and gold you may obtain from the province of Babylon, as well as the freewill offerings of the people and priests for the temple of their God in Jerusalem.

Ezr 7:17  With this money be sure to buy bulls, rams and male lambs, together with their grain offerings and drink offerings, and sacrifice them on the altar of the temple of your God in Jerusalem.

Ezr 7:18  You and your fellow Israelites may then do whatever seems best with the rest of the silver and gold, in accordance with the will of your God.

Ezr 7:19  Deliver to the God of Jerusalem all the articles entrusted to you for worship in the temple of your God.

Ezr 7:20  And anything else needed for the temple of your God that you are responsible to supply, you may provide from the royal treasury.

Ezr 7:21  Now I, King Artaxerxes, decree that all the treasurers of Trans-Euphrates are to provide with diligence whatever Ezra the priest, the teacher of the Law of the God of heaven, may ask of you--

Ezr 7:23  Whatever the God of heaven has prescribed, let it be done with diligence for the temple of the God of heaven. Why should his wrath fall on the realm of the king and of his sons?

Ezr 7:24  You are also to know that you have no authority to impose taxes, tribute or duty on any of the priests, Levites, musicians, gatekeepers, temple servants or other workers at this house of God.

Ezr 7:25  And you, Ezra, in accordance with the wisdom of your God, which you possess, appoint magistrates and judges to administer justice to all the people of Trans-Euphrates--all who know the laws of your God. And you are to teach any who do not know them.

Ezr 7:26  Whoever does not obey the law of your God and the law of the king must surely be punished by death, banishment, confiscation of property, or imprisonment.

Ezr 7:27  Praise be to the LORD, the God of our ancestors, who has put it into the king's heart to bring honor to the house of the LORD in Jerusalem in this way

Ezr 7:28  and who has extended his good favor to me before the king and his advisers and all the king's powerful officials. Because the hand of the LORD my God was on me, I took courage and gathered leaders from Israel to go up with me.

Ezr 8:17  and I ordered them to go to Iddo, the leader in Kasiphia. I told them what to say to Iddo and his fellow Levites, the temple servants in Kasiphia, so that they might bring attendants to us for the house of our God.

Ezr 8:18  Because the gracious hand of our God was on us, they brought us Sherebiah, a capable man, from the descendants of Mahli son of Levi, the son of Israel, and Sherebiah's sons and brothers, 18 in all;

Ezr 8:21  There, by the Ahava Canal, I proclaimed a fast, so that we might humble ourselves before our God and ask him for a safe journey for us and our children, with all our possessions.

Ezr 8:22  I was ashamed to ask the king for soldiers and horsemen to protect us from enemies on the road, because we had told the king, "The gracious hand of our God is on everyone who looks to him, but his great anger is against all who forsake him."

Ezr 8:23  So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and he answered our prayer.

Ezr 8:25  and I weighed out to them the offering of silver and gold and the articles that the king, his advisers, his officials and all Israel present there had donated for the house of our God.

Ezr 8:28  I said to them, "You as well as these articles are consecrated to the LORD. The silver and gold are a freewill offering to the LORD, the God of your ancestors.

Ezr 8:30  Then the priests and Levites received the silver and gold and sacred articles that had been weighed out to be taken to the house of our God in Jerusalem.

Ezr 8:31  On the twelfth day of the first month we set out from the Ahava Canal to go to Jerusalem. The hand of our God was on us, and he protected us from enemies and bandits along the way.

Ezr 8:33  On the fourth day, in the house of our God, we weighed out the silver and gold and the sacred articles into the hands of Meremoth son of Uriah, the priest. Eleazar son of Phinehas was with him, and so were the Levites Jozabad son of Jeshua and Noadiah son of Binnui.

Ezr 8:35  Then the exiles who had returned from captivity sacrificed burnt offerings to the God of Israel: twelve bulls for all Israel, ninety-six rams, seventy-seven male lambs and, as a sin offering, twelve male goats. All this was a burnt offering to the LORD.

Ezr 8:36  They also delivered the king's orders to the royal satraps and to the governors of Trans-Euphrates, who then gave assistance to the people and to the house of God.

Ezr 9:4  Then everyone who trembled at the words of the God of Israel gathered around me because of this unfaithfulness of the exiles. And I sat there appalled until the evening sacrifice.

Ezr 9:5  Then, at the evening sacrifice, I rose from my self-abasement, with my tunic and cloak torn, and fell on my knees with my hands spread out to the LORD my God

Ezr 9:6  and prayed: "I am too ashamed and disgraced, my God, to lift up my face to you, because our sins are higher than our heads and our guilt has reached to the heavens.

Ezr 9:8  "But now, for a brief moment, the LORD our God has been gracious in leaving us a remnant and giving us a firm place in his sanctuary, and so our God gives light to our eyes and a little relief in our bondage.

Ezr 9:9  Though we are slaves, our God has not forsaken us in our bondage. He has shown us kindness in the sight of the kings of Persia: He has granted us new life to rebuild the house of our God and repair its ruins, and he has given us a wall of protection in Judah and Jerusalem.

Ezr 9:10  "But now, our God, what can we say after this? For we have forsaken the commands

Ezr 9:13  "What has happened to us is a result of our evil deeds and our great guilt, and yet, our God, you have punished us less than our sins deserved and have given us a remnant like this.

Ezr 9:15  LORD, the God of Israel, you are righteous! We are left this day as a remnant. Here we are before you in our guilt, though because of it not one of us can stand in your presence."

Ezr 10:1  While Ezra was praying and confessing, weeping and throwing himself down before the house of God, a large crowd of Israelites--men, women and children--gathered around him. They too wept bitterly.

Ezr 10:2  Then Shekaniah son of Jehiel, one of the descendants of Elam, said to Ezra, "We have been unfaithful to our God by marrying foreign women from the peoples around us. But in spite of this, there is still hope for Israel.

Ezr 10:3  Now let us make a covenant before our God to send away all these women and their children, in accordance with the counsel of my lord and of those who fear the commands of our God. Let it be done according to the Law.

Ezr 10:6  Then Ezra withdrew from before the house of God and went to the room of Jehohanan son of Eliashib. While he was there, he ate no food and drank no water, because he continued to mourn over the unfaithfulness of the exiles.

Ezr 10:9  Within the three days, all the men of Judah and Benjamin had gathered in Jerusalem. And on the twentieth day of the ninth month, all the people were sitting in the square before the house of God, greatly distressed by the occasion and because of the rain.

Ezr 10:11  Now honor the LORD, the God of your ancestors, and do his will. Separate yourselves from the peoples around you and from your foreign wives."

Ezr 10:14  Let our officials act for the whole assembly. Then let everyone in our towns who has married a foreign woman come at a set time, along with the elders and judges of each town, until the fierce anger of our God in this matter is turned away from us."

Neh 1:4  When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.

Neh 1:5  Then I said: "LORD, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments,

Neh 2:4  The king said to me, "What is it you want?" Then I prayed to the God of heaven,

Neh 2:8  And may I have a letter to Asaph, keeper of the royal park, so he will give me timber to make beams for the gates of the citadel by the temple and for the city wall and for the residence I will occupy?" And because the gracious hand of my God was on me, the king granted my requests.

Neh 2:12  I set out during the night with a few others. I had not told anyone what my God had put in my heart to do for Jerusalem. There were no mounts with me except the one I was riding on.

Neh 2:18  I also told them about the gracious hand of my God on me and what the king had said to me. They replied, "Let us start rebuilding." So they began this good work.

Neh 2:20  I answered them by saying, "The God of heaven will give us success. We his servants will start rebuilding, but as for you, you have no share in Jerusalem or any claim or historic right to it."

Neh 4:4  Hear us, our God, for we are despised. Turn their insults back on their own heads. Give them over as plunder in a land of captivity.

Neh 4:9  But we prayed to our God and posted a guard day and night to meet this threat.

Neh 4:15  When our enemies heard that we were aware of their plot and that God had frustrated it, we all returned to the wall, each to our own work.

Neh 4:20  Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, join us there. Our God will fight for us!"

Neh 5:9  So I continued, "What you are doing is not right. Shouldn't you walk in the fear of our God to avoid the reproach of our Gentile enemies?

Neh 5:13  I also shook out the folds of my robe and said, "In this way may God shake out of their house and possessions anyone who does not keep this promise. So may such a person be shaken out and emptied!" At this the whole assembly said, "Amen," and praised the LORD. And the people did as they had promised.

Neh 5:15  But the earlier governors--those preceding me--placed a heavy burden on the people and took forty shekels of silver from them in addition to food and wine. Their assistants also lorded it over the people. But out of reverence for God I did not act like that.

Neh 5:19  Remember me with favor, my God, for all I have done for these people.

Neh 6:10  One day I went to the house of Shemaiah son of Delaiah, the son of Mehetabel, who was shut in at his home. He said, "Let us meet in the house of God, inside the temple, and let us close the temple doors, because men are coming to kill you--by night they are coming to kill you."

Neh 6:12  I realized that God had not sent him, but that he had prophesied against me because Tobiah and Sanballat had hired him.

Neh 6:14  Remember Tobiah and Sanballat, my God, because of what they have done; remember also the prophet Noadiah and how she and the rest of the prophets have been trying to intimidate me.

Neh 6:16  When all our enemies heard about this, all the surrounding nations were afraid and lost their self-confidence, because they realized that this work had been done with the help of our God.

Neh 7:2  I put in charge of Jerusalem my brother Hanani, along with Hananiah the commander of the citadel, because he was a man of integrity and feared God more than most people do.

Neh 7:5  So my God put it into my heart to assemble the nobles, the officials and the common people for registration by families. I found the genealogical record of those who had been the first to return. This is what I found written there:

Neh 8:6  Ezra praised the LORD, the great God; and all the people lifted their hands and responded, "Amen! Amen!" Then they bowed down and worshiped the LORD with their faces to the ground.

Neh 8:8  They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving the meaning so that the people understood what was being read.

Neh 8:9  Then Nehemiah the governor, Ezra the priest and teacher of the Law, and the Levites who were instructing the people said to them all, "This day is holy to the LORD your God. Do not mourn or weep." For all the people had been weeping as they listened to the words of the Law.

Neh 8:16  So the people went out and brought back branches and built themselves temporary shelters on their own roofs, in their courtyards, in the courts of the house of God and in the square by the Water Gate and the one by the Gate of Ephraim.

Neh 8:18  Day after day, from the first day to the last, Ezra read from the Book of the Law of God. They celebrated the festival for seven days, and on the eighth day, in accordance with the regulation, there was an assembly.

Neh 9:3  They stood where they were and read from the Book of the Law of the LORD their God for a quarter of the day, and spent another quarter in confession and in worshiping the LORD their God.

Neh 9:4  Standing on the stairs of the Levites were Jeshua, Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani and Kenani. They cried out with loud voices to the LORD their God.

Neh 9:5  And the Levites--Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah and Pethahiah--said: "Stand up and praise the LORD your God, who is from everlasting to everlasting." "Blessed be your glorious name, and may it be exalted above all blessing and praise.

Neh 9:7  "You are the LORD God, who chose Abram and brought him out of Ur of the Chaldeans and named him Abraham.

Neh 9:17  They refused to listen and failed to remember the miracles you performed among them. They became stiff-necked and in their rebellion appointed a leader in order to return to their slavery. But you are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love. Therefore you did not desert them,

Neh 9:18  even when they cast for themselves an image of a calf and said, 'This is your god, who brought you up out of Egypt,' or when they committed awful blasphemies.

Neh 9:31  But in your great mercy you did not put an end to them or abandon them, for you are a gracious and merciful God.

Neh 9:32  "Now therefore, our God, the great God, mighty and awesome, who keeps his covenant of love, do not let all this hardship seem trifling in your eyes--the hardship that has come on us, on our kings and leaders, on our priests and prophets, on our ancestors and all your people, from the days of the kings of Assyria until today.

Neh 10:28  "The rest of the people--priests, Levites, gatekeepers, musicians, temple servants and all who separated themselves from the neighboring peoples for the sake of the Law of God, together with their wives and all their sons and daughters who are able to understand--

Neh 10:29  all these now join their fellow Israelites the nobles, and bind themselves with a curse and an oath to follow the Law of God given through Moses the servant of God and to obey carefully all the commands, regulations and decrees of the LORD our Lord.

Neh 10:32  "We assume the responsibility for carrying out the commands to give a third of a shekel each year for the service of the house of our God:

Neh 10:33  for the bread set out on the table; for the regular grain offerings and burnt offerings; for the offerings on the Sabbaths, at the New Moon feasts and at the appointed festivals; for the holy offerings; for sin offerings to make atonement for Israel; and for all the duties of the house of our God.

Neh 10:34  "We--the priests, the Levites and the people--have cast lots to determine when each of our families is to bring to the house of our God at set times each year a contribution of wood to burn on the altar of the LORD our God, as it is written in the Law.

Neh 10:36  "As it is also written in the Law, we will bring the firstborn of our sons and of our cattle, of our herds and of our flocks to the house of our God, to the priests ministering there.

Neh 10:37  "Moreover, we will bring to the storerooms of the house of our God, to the priests, the first of our ground meal, of our grain offerings, of the fruit of all our trees and of our new wine and olive oil. And we will bring a tithe of our crops to the Levites, for it is the Levites who collect the tithes in all the towns where we work.

Neh 10:38  A priest descended from Aaron is to accompany the Levites when they receive the tithes, and the Levites are to bring a tenth of the tithes up to the house of our God, to the storerooms of the treasury.

Neh 10:39  The people of Israel, including the Levites, are to bring their contributions of grain, new wine and olive oil to the storerooms, where the articles for the sanctuary and for the ministering priests, the gatekeepers and the musicians are also kept. "We will not neglect the house of our God."

Neh 11:11  Seraiah son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub, the official in charge of the house of God,

Neh 11:16  Shabbethai and Jozabad, two of the heads of the Levites, who had charge of the outside work of the house of God;

Neh 11:22  The chief officer of the Levites in Jerusalem was Uzzi son of Bani, the son of Hashabiah, the son of Mattaniah, the son of Mika. Uzzi was one of Asaph's descendants, who were the musicians responsible for the service of the house of God.

Neh 12:24  And the leaders of the Levites were Hashabiah, Sherebiah, Jeshua son of Kadmiel, and their associates, who stood opposite them to give praise and thanksgiving, one section responding to the other, as prescribed by David the man of God.

Neh 12:36  and his associates--Shemaiah, Azarel, Milalai, Gilalai, Maai, Nethanel, Judah and Hanani--with musical instruments prescribed by David the man of God. Ezra the teacher of the Law led the procession.

Neh 12:40  The two choirs that gave thanks then took their places in the house of God; so did I, together with half the officials,

Neh 12:43  And on that day they offered great sacrifices, rejoicing because God had given them great joy. The women and children also rejoiced. The sound of rejoicing in Jerusalem could be heard far away.

Neh 12:45  They performed the service of their God and the service of purification, as did also the musicians and gatekeepers, according to the commands of David and his son Solomon.

Neh 12:46  For long ago, in the days of David and Asaph, there had been directors for the musicians and for the songs of praise and thanksgiving to God.

Neh 13:1  On that day the Book of Moses was read aloud in the hearing of the people and there it was found written that no Ammonite or Moabite should ever be admitted into the assembly of God,

Neh 13:2  because they had not met the Israelites with food and water but had hired Balaam to call a curse down on them. (Our God, however, turned the curse into a blessing.)

Neh 13:4  Before this, Eliashib the priest had been put in charge of the storerooms of the house of our God. He was closely associated with Tobiah,

Neh 13:7  and came back to Jerusalem. Here I learned about the evil thing Eliashib had done in providing Tobiah a room in the courts of the house of God.

Neh 13:9  I gave orders to purify the rooms, and then I put back into them the equipment of the house of God, with the grain offerings and the incense.

Neh 13:11  So I rebuked the officials and asked them, "Why is the house of God neglected?" Then I called them together and stationed them at their posts.

Neh 13:14  Remember me for this, my God, and do not blot out what I have so faithfully done for the house of my God and its services.

Neh 13:18  Didn't your ancestors do the same things, so that our God brought all this calamity on us and on this city? Now you are stirring up more wrath against Israel by desecrating the Sabbath."

Neh 13:22  Then I commanded the Levites to purify themselves and go and guard the gates in order to keep the Sabbath day holy. Remember me for this also, my God, and show mercy to me according to your great love.

Neh 13:25  I rebuked them and called curses down on them. I beat some of the men and pulled out their hair. I made them take an oath in God's name and said: "You are not to give your daughters in marriage to their sons, nor are you to take their daughters in marriage for your sons or for yourselves.

Neh 13:26  Was it not because of marriages like these that Solomon king of Israel sinned? Among the many nations there was no king like him. He was loved by his God, and God made him king over all Israel, but even he was led into sin by foreign women.

Neh 13:27  Must we hear now that you too are doing all this terrible wickedness and are being unfaithful to our God by marrying foreign women?"

Neh 13:29  Remember them, my God, because they defiled the priestly office and the covenant of the priesthood and of the Levites.

Neh 13:31  I also made provision for contributions of wood at designated times, and for the firstfruits. Remember me with favor, my God.

Job 1:1  In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil.

Job 1:5  When a period of feasting had run its course, Job would make arrangements for them to be purified. Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each of them, thinking, "Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed God in their hearts." This was Job's regular custom.

Job 1:8  Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil."

Job 1:9  "Does Job fear God for nothing?" Satan replied.

Job 1:16  While he was still speaking, another messenger came and said, "The fire of God fell from the heavens and burned up the sheep and the servants, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!"

Job 1:22  In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing.

Job 2:3  Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil. And he still maintains his integrity, though you incited me against him to ruin him without any reason."

Job 2:9  His wife said to him, "Are you still maintaining your integrity? Curse God and die!"

Job 2:10  He replied, "You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?" In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.

Job 3:4  That day--may it turn to darkness; may God above not care about it; may no light shine on it.

Job 3:23  Why is life given to a man whose way is hidden, whom God has hedged in?

Job 4:9  At the breath of God they perish; at the blast of his anger they are no more.

Job 4:17  'Can a mortal be more righteous than God? Can even a strong man be more pure than his Maker?

Job 4:18  If God places no trust in his servants, if he charges his angels with error,

Job 5:8  "But if I were you, I would appeal to God; I would lay my cause before him.

Job 5:17  "Blessed is the one whom God corrects; so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty.

Job 6:4  The arrows of the Almighty are in me, my spirit drinks in their poison; God's terrors are marshaled against me.

Job 6:8  "Oh, that I might have my request, that God would grant what I hope for,

Job 6:9  that God would be willing to crush me, to let loose his hand and cut off my life!

Job 7:7  Remember, O God, that my life is but a breath; my eyes will never see happiness again.

Job 8:3  Does God pervert justice? Does the Almighty pervert what is right?

Job 8:5  But if you will seek God earnestly and plead with the Almighty,

Job 8:13  Such is the destiny of all who forget God; so perishes the hope of the godless.

Job 8:20  "Surely God does not reject one who is blameless or strengthen the hands of evildoers.

Job 9:2  "Indeed, I know that this is true. But how can mere mortals prove their innocence before God?

Job 9:13  God does not restrain his anger; even the cohorts of Rahab cowered at his feet.

Job 9:34  someone to remove God's rod from me, so that his terror would frighten me no more.

Job 10:2  I say to God: Do not declare me guilty, but tell me what charges you have against me.

Job 11:4  You say to God, 'My beliefs are flawless and I am pure in your sight.'

Job 11:5  Oh, how I wish that God would speak, that he would open his lips against you

Job 11:6  and disclose to you the secrets of wisdom, for true wisdom has two sides. Know this: God has even forgotten some of your sin.

Job 11:7  "Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?

Job 12:4  "I have become a laughingstock to my friends, though I called on God and he answered-- a mere laughingstock, though righteous and blameless!

Job 12:6  The tents of marauders are undisturbed, and those who provoke God are secure-- those God has in his hand.

Job 12:13  "To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his.

Job 13:3  But I desire to speak to the Almighty and to argue my case with God.

Job 13:7  Will you speak wickedly on God's behalf? Will you speak deceitfully for him?

Job 13:8  Will you show him partiality? Will you argue the case for God?

Job 13:20  "Only grant me these two things, God, and then I will not hide from you:

Job 15:4  But you even undermine piety and hinder devotion to God.

Job 15:8  Do you listen in on God's council? Do you have a monopoly on wisdom?

Job 15:11  Are God's consolations not enough for you, words spoken gently to you?

Job 15:13  so that you vent your rage against God and pour out such words from your mouth?

Job 15:15  If God places no trust in his holy ones, if even the heavens are not pure in his eyes,

Job 15:25  because he shakes his fist at God and vaunts himself against the Almighty,

Job 15:30  He will not escape the darkness; a flame will wither his shoots, and the breath of God's mouth will carry him away.

Job 16:7  Surely, God, you have worn me out; you have devastated my entire household.

Job 16:9  God assails me and tears me in his anger and gnashes his teeth at me; my opponent fastens on me his piercing eyes.

Job 16:11  God has turned me over to the ungodly and thrown me into the clutches of the wicked.

Job 16:20  My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God;

Job 16:21  on behalf of a man he pleads with God as one pleads for a friend.

Job 17:3  "Give me, O God, the pledge you demand. Who else will put up security for me?

Job 17:6  "God has made me a byword to everyone, a man in whose face people spit.

Job 18:21  Surely such is the dwelling of an evil man; such is the place of one who does not know God."

Job 19:6  then know that God has wronged me and drawn his net around me.

Job 19:21  "Have pity on me, my friends, have pity, for the hand of God has struck me.

Job 19:22  Why do you pursue me as God does? Will you never get enough of my flesh?

Job 19:26  And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God;

Job 20:15  He will spit out the riches he swallowed; God will make his stomach vomit them up.

Job 20:23  When he has filled his belly, God will vent his burning anger against him and rain down his blows on him.

Job 20:28  A flood will carry off his house, rushing waters on the day of God's wrath.

Job 20:29  Such is the fate God allots the wicked, the heritage appointed for them by God."

Job 21:9  Their homes are safe and free from fear; the rod of God is not on them.

Job 21:14  Yet they say to God, 'Leave us alone! We have no desire to know your ways.

Job 21:17  "Yet how often is the lamp of the wicked snuffed out? How often does calamity come upon them, the fate God allots in his anger?

Job 21:19  It is said, 'God stores up the punishment of the wicked for their children.' Let him repay the wicked, so that they themselves will experience it!

Job 21:22  "Can anyone teach knowledge to God, since he judges even the highest?

Job 22:2  "Can a man be of benefit to God? Can even a wise person benefit him?

Job 22:12  "Is not God in the heights of heaven? And see how lofty are the highest stars!

Job 22:13  Yet you say, 'What does God know? Does he judge through such darkness?

Job 22:17  They said to God, 'Leave us alone! What can the Almighty do to us?'

Job 22:21  "Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you.

Job 22:26  Surely then you will find delight in the Almighty and will lift up your face to God.

Job 23:16  God has made my heart faint; the Almighty has terrified me.

Job 24:12  The groans of the dying rise from the city, and the souls of the wounded cry out for help. But God charges no one with wrongdoing.

Job 24:22  But God drags away the mighty by his power; though they become established, they have no assurance of life.

Job 25:2  "Dominion and awe belong to God; he establishes order in the heights of heaven.

Job 25:4  How then can a mortal be righteous before God? How can one born of woman be pure?

Job 26:6  The realm of the dead is naked before God; Destruction lies uncovered.

Job 27:2  "As surely as God lives, who has denied me justice, the Almighty, who has made my life bitter,

Job 27:3  as long as I have life within me, the breath of God in my nostrils,

Job 27:8  For what hope have the godless when they are cut off, when God takes away their life?

Job 27:9  Does God listen to their cry when distress comes upon them?

Job 27:10  Will they find delight in the Almighty? Will they call on God at all times?

Job 27:11  "I will teach you about the power of God; the ways of the Almighty I will not conceal.

Job 27:13  "Here is the fate God allots to the wicked, the heritage a ruthless man receives from the Almighty:

Job 28:23  God understands the way to it and he alone knows where it dwells,

Job 29:2  "How I long for the months gone by, for the days when God watched over me,

Job 29:4  Oh, for the days when I was in my prime, when God's intimate friendship blessed my house,

Job 30:11  Now that God has unstrung my bow and afflicted me, they throw off restraint in my presence.

Job 30:18  In his great power God becomes like clothing to me; he binds me like the neck of my garment.

Job 30:20  "I cry out to you, God, but you do not answer; I stand up, but you merely look at me.

Job 31:2  For what is our lot from God above, our heritage from the Almighty on high?

Job 31:6  let God weigh me in honest scales and he will know that I am blameless--

Job 31:14  what will I do when God confronts me? What will I answer when called to account?

Job 31:23  For I dreaded destruction from God, and for fear of his splendor I could not do such things.

Job 31:28  then these also would be sins to be judged, for I would have been unfaithful to God on high.

Job 33:10  Yet God has found fault with me; he considers me his enemy.

Job 33:12  "But I tell you, in this you are not right, for God is greater than any mortal.

Job 33:14  For God does speak--now one way, now another-- though no one perceives it.

Job 33:24  and he is gracious to that person and says to God, 'Spare them from going down to the pit; I have found a ransom for them--

Job 33:26  then that person can pray to God and find favor with him, they will see God's face and shout for joy; he will restore them to full well-being.

Job 33:28  God has delivered me from going down to the pit, and I shall live to enjoy the light of life.'

Job 33:29  "God does all these things to a person-- twice, even three times--

Job 34:5  "Job says, 'I am innocent, but God denies me justice.

Job 34:9  For he says, 'There is no profit in trying to please God.'

Job 34:10  "So listen to me, you men of understanding. Far be it from God to do evil, from the Almighty to do wrong.

Job 34:12  It is unthinkable that God would do wrong, that the Almighty would pervert justice.

Job 34:23  God has no need to examine people further, that they should come before him for judgment.

Job 34:31  "Suppose someone says to God, 'I am guilty but will offend no more.

Job 34:33  Should God then reward you on your terms, when you refuse to repent? You must decide, not I; so tell me what you know.

Job 34:37  To his sin he adds rebellion; scornfully he claps his hands among us and multiplies his words against God."

Job 35:2  "Do you think this is just? You say, 'I am in the right, not God.'

Job 36:5  "God is mighty, but despises no one; he is mighty, and firm in his purpose.

Job 36:22  "God is exalted in his power. Who is a teacher like him?

Job 36:26  How great is God--beyond our understanding! The number of his years is past finding out.

Job 37:5  God's voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding.

Job 37:10  The breath of God produces ice, and the broad waters become frozen.

Job 37:14  "Listen to this, Job; stop and consider God's wonders.

Job 37:15  Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?

Job 37:22  Out of the north he comes in golden splendor; God comes in awesome majesty.

Job 38:33  Do you know the laws of the heavens? Can you set up God's dominion over the earth?

Job 40:9  Do you have an arm like God's, and can your voice thunder like his?

Job 40:19  It ranks first among the works of God, yet its Maker can approach it with his sword.

Psa 3:2  Many are saying of me, "God will not deliver him."

Psa 3:7  Arise, LORD! Deliver me, my God! Strike all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth of the wicked.

Psa 4:1  For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David. Answer me when I call to you, my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

Psa 5:2  Hear my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.

Psa 5:4  For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness; with you, evil people are not welcome.

Psa 5:10  Declare them guilty, O God! Let their intrigues be their downfall. Banish them for their many sins, for they have rebelled against you.

Psa 7:1  A shiggaion of David, which he sang to the LORD concerning Cush, a Benjamite. LORD my God, I take refuge in you; save and deliver me from all who pursue me,

Psa 7:3  LORD my God, if I have done this and there is guilt on my hands--

Psa 7:6  Arise, LORD, in your anger; rise up against the rage of my enemies. Awake, my God; decree justice.

Psa 7:9  Bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure-- you, the righteous God who probes minds and hearts.

Psa 7:10  My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart.

Psa 7:11  God is a righteous judge, a God who displays his wrath every day.

Psa 9:18  But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.

Psa 10:4  In his pride the wicked man does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God.

Psa 10:11  He says to himself, "God will never notice; he covers his face and never sees."

Psa 10:12  Arise, LORD! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless.

Psa 10:13  Why does the wicked man revile God? Why does he say to himself, "He won't call me to account"?

Psa 10:14  But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.

Psa 13:3  Look on me and answer, LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,

Psa 14:1  For the director of music. Of David. The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.

Psa 14:2  The LORD looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.

Psa 14:5  But there they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of the righteous.

Psa 16:1  A miktam of David. Keep me safe, my God, for in you I take refuge.

Psa 17:6  I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.

Psa 18:6  In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears.

Psa 18:21  For I have kept the ways of the LORD; I am not guilty of turning from my God.

Psa 18:28  You, LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.

Psa 18:29  With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.

Psa 18:30  As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD's word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.

Psa 18:31  For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God?

Psa 18:32  It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.

Psa 18:46  The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior!

Psa 18:47  He is the God who avenges me, who subdues nations under me,

Psa 22:1  For the director of music. To the tune of "The Doe of the Morning." A psalm of David. My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from my cries of anguish?

Psa 22:2  My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, but I find no rest.

Psa 22:10  From birth I was cast on you; from my mother's womb you have been my God.

Psa 24:4  The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god.

Psa 24:5  They will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God their Savior.

Psa 24:6  Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob.

Psa 25:5  Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.

Psa 25:22  Deliver Israel, O God, from all their troubles!

Psa 31:14  But I trust in you, LORD; I say, "You are my God."

Psa 33:12  Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance.

Psa 35:23  Awake, and rise to my defense! Contend for me, my God and Lord.

Psa 35:24  Vindicate me in your righteousness, LORD my God; do not let them gloat over me.

Psa 36:1  For the director of music. Of David the servant of the LORD. I have a message from God in my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: There is no fear of God before their eyes.

Psa 36:7  How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.

Psa 37:31  The law of their God is in their hearts; their feet do not slip.

Psa 38:15  LORD, I wait for you; you will answer, Lord my God.

Psa 38:21  LORD, do not forsake me; do not be far from me, my God.

Psa 40:3  He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him.

Psa 40:5  Many, LORD my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.

Psa 40:8  I desire to do your will, my God; your law is within my heart."

Psa 40:17  But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; you are my God, do not delay.

Psa 42:1  For the director of music. A maskil of the Sons of Korah. As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.

Psa 42:2  My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?

Psa 42:3  My tears have been my food day and night, while people say to me all day long, "Where is your God?"

Psa 42:4  These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go to the house of God under the protection of the Mighty One with shouts of joy and praise among the festive throng.

Psa 42:5  Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

Psa 42:8  By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me-- a prayer to the God of my life.

Psa 42:9  I say to God my Rock, "Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?"

Psa 42:10  My bones suffer mortal agony as my foes taunt me, saying to me all day long, "Where is your God?"

Psa 42:11  Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

Psa 43:1  Vindicate me, my God, and plead my cause against an unfaithful nation. Rescue me from those who are deceitful and wicked.

Psa 43:2  You are God my stronghold. Why have you rejected me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?

Psa 43:5  Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

Psa 44:4  You are my King and my God, who decrees victories for Jacob.

Psa 44:8  In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise your name forever.

Psa 44:20  If we had forgotten the name of our God or spread out our hands to a foreign god,

Psa 44:21  would not God have discovered it, since he knows the secrets of the heart?

Psa 45:2  You are the most excellent of men and your lips have been anointed with grace, since God has blessed you forever.

Psa 45:6  Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.

Psa 45:7  You love righteousness and hate wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.

Psa 46:1  For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth. A song. God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

Psa 48:1  A song. A psalm of the Sons of Korah. Great is the LORD, and most worthy of praise, in the city of our God, his holy mountain.

Psa 48:3  God is in her citadels; he has shown himself to be her fortress.

Psa 48:8  As we have heard, so we have seen in the city of the LORD Almighty, in the city of our God: God makes her secure forever.

Psa 48:9  Within your temple, O God, we meditate on your unfailing love.

Psa 48:10  Like your name, O God, your praise reaches to the ends of the earth; your right hand is filled with righteousness.

Psa 48:14  For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.

Psa 49:7  No one can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for them--

Psa 50:1  A psalm of Asaph. The Mighty One, God, the LORD, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to where it sets.

Psa 50:2  From Zion, perfect in beauty, God shines forth.

Psa 50:6  And the heavens proclaim his righteousness, for he is a God of justice.

Psa 50:7  "Listen, my people, and I will speak; I will testify against you, Israel: I am God, your God.

Psa 50:14  "Sacrifice thank offerings to God, fulfill your vows to the Most High,

Psa 50:16  But to the wicked person, God says: "What right have you to recite my laws or take my covenant on your lips?

Psa 51:1  For the director of music. A psalm of David. When the prophet Nathan came to him after David had committed adultery with Bathsheba. Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions.

Psa 51:14  Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, you who are God my Savior, and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.

Psa 51:17  My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.

Psa 52:1  For the director of music. A maskil of David. When Doeg the Edomite had gone to Saul and told him: "David has gone to the house of Ahimelek." Why do you boast of evil, you mighty hero? Why do you boast all day long, you who are a disgrace in the eyes of God?

Psa 52:5  Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin: He will snatch you up and pluck you from your tent; he will uproot you from the land of the living.

Psa 52:7  "Here now is the man who did not make God his stronghold but trusted in his great wealth and grew strong by destroying others!"

Psa 52:8  But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God's unfailing love for ever and ever.

Psa 53:1  For the director of music. According to mahalath. A maskil of David. The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, and their ways are vile; there is no one who does good.

Psa 53:2  God looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.

Psa 53:4  Do all these evildoers know nothing? They devour my people as though eating bread; they never call on God.

Psa 53:5  But there they are, overwhelmed with dread, where there was nothing to dread. God scattered the bones of those who attacked you; you put them to shame, for God despised them.

Psa 53:6  Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When God restores his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!

Psa 54:1  For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A maskil of David. When the Ziphites had gone to Saul and said, "Is not David hiding among us?" Save me, O God, by your name; vindicate me by your might.

Psa 54:4  Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.

Psa 55:1  For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A maskil of David. Listen to my prayer, O God, do not ignore my plea;

Psa 55:14  with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship at the house of God, as we walked about among the worshipers.

Psa 55:16  As for me, I call to God, and the LORD saves me.

Psa 55:19  God, who is enthroned from of old, who does not change-- he will hear them and humble them, because they have no fear of God.

Psa 55:23  But you, God, will bring down the wicked into the pit of decay; the bloodthirsty and deceitful will not live out half their days. But as for me, I trust in you.

Psa 56:1  For the director of music. To the tune of "A Dove on Distant Oaks." Of David. A miktam. When the Philistines had seized him in Gath. Be merciful to me, my God, for my enemies are in hot pursuit; all day long they press their attack.

Psa 56:4  In God, whose word I praise-- in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?

Psa 56:7  Because of their wickedness do not let them escape; in your anger, God, bring the nations down.

Psa 56:9  Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me.

Psa 56:10  In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise--

Psa 56:11  in God I trust and am not afraid. What can man do to me?

Psa 56:12  I am under vows to you, my God; I will present my thank offerings to you.

Psa 56:13  For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.

Psa 57:3  He sends from heaven and saves me, rebuking those who hotly pursue me-- God sends forth his love and his faithfulness.

Psa 57:5  Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.

Psa 57:7  My heart, O God, is steadfast, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music.

Psa 57:11  Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.

Psa 58:6  Break the teeth in their mouths, O God; LORD, tear out the fangs of those lions!

Psa 58:11  Then people will say, "Surely the righteous still are rewarded; surely there is a God who judges the earth."

Psa 59:1  For the director of music. To the tune of "Do Not Destroy." Of David. A miktam. When Saul had sent men to watch David's house in order to kill him. Deliver me from my enemies, O God; be my fortress against those who are attacking me.

Psa 59:9  You are my strength, I watch for you; you, God, are my fortress,

Psa 59:10  my God on whom I can rely. God will go before me and will let me gloat over those who slander me.

Psa 59:13  consume them in your wrath, consume them till they are no more. Then it will be known to the ends of the earth that God rules over Jacob.

Psa 59:17  You are my strength, I sing praise to you; you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely.

Psa 60:1  For the director of music. To the tune of "The Lily of the Covenant." A miktam of David. For teaching. When he fought Aram Naharaim and Aram Zobah, and when Joab returned and struck down twelve thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt.

Psa 60:6  God has spoken from his sanctuary: "In triumph I will parcel out Shechem and measure off the Valley of Sukkoth.

Psa 60:10  Is it not you, God, you who have now rejected us and no longer go out with our armies?

Psa 60:12  With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.

Psa 61:1  For the director of music. With stringed instruments. Of David. Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.

Psa 63:1  A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah. You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.

Psa 65:1  For the director of music. A psalm of David. A song. Praise awaits you, our God, in Zion; to you our vows will be fulfilled.

Psa 65:5  You answer us with awesome and righteous deeds, God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas,

Psa 65:9  You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained it.

Psa 66:1  For the director of music. A song. A psalm. Shout for joy to God, all the earth!

Psa 66:3  Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you.

Psa 66:8  Praise our God, all peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard;

Psa 68:5  A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.

Psa 68:6  God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

Psa 68:7  When you, God, went out before your people, when you marched through the wilderness,

Psa 68:8  the earth shook, the heavens poured down rain, before God, the One of Sinai, before God, the God of Israel.

Psa 68:9  You gave abundant showers, O God; you refreshed your weary inheritance.

Psa 68:10  Your people settled in it, and from your bounty, God, you provided for the poor.

Psa 68:16  why gaze in envy, you rugged mountain, at the mountain where God chooses to reign, where the LORD himself will dwell forever?

Psa 68:17  The chariots of God are tens of thousands and thousands of thousands; the Lord has come from Sinai into his sanctuary.

Psa 68:18  When you ascended on high, you took many captives; you received gifts from people, even from the rebellious-- that you, LORD God, might dwell there.

Psa 68:19  Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.

Psa 68:20  Our God is a God who saves; from the Sovereign LORD comes escape from death.

Psa 68:21  Surely God will crush the heads of his enemies, the hairy crowns of those who go on in their sins.

Psa 68:24  Your procession, God, has come into view, the procession of my God and King into the sanctuary.

Psa 68:26  Praise God in the great congregation; praise the LORD in the assembly of Israel.

Psa 68:28  Summon your power, God; show us your strength, our God, as you have done before.

Psa 68:31  Envoys will come from Egypt; Cush will submit herself to God.

Psa 68:32  Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth, sing praise to the Lord,

Psa 68:34  Proclaim the power of God, whose majesty is over Israel, whose power is in the heavens.

Psa 68:35  You, God, are awesome in your sanctuary; the God of Israel gives power and strength to his people. Praise be to God!

Psa 69:1  For the director of music. To the tune of "Lilies." Of David. Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck.

Psa 69:3  I am worn out calling for help; my throat is parched. My eyes fail, looking for my God.

Psa 69:5  You, God, know my folly; my guilt is not hidden from you.

Psa 69:6  Lord, the LORD Almighty, may those who hope in you not be disgraced because of me; God of Israel, may those who seek you not be put to shame because of me.

Psa 69:13  But I pray to you, LORD, in the time of your favor; in your great love, O God, answer me with your sure salvation.

Psa 69:29  But as for me, afflicted and in pain-- may your salvation, God, protect me.

Psa 69:30  I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.

Psa 69:32  The poor will see and be glad-- you who seek God, may your hearts live!

Psa 69:35  for God will save Zion and rebuild the cities of Judah. Then people will settle there and possess it;

Psa 70:1  For the director of music. Of David. A petition. Hasten, O God, to save me; come quickly, LORD, to help me.

Psa 70:5  But as for me, I am poor and needy; come quickly to me, O God. You are my help and my deliverer; LORD, do not delay.

Psa 71:4  Deliver me, my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of those who are evil and cruel.

Psa 71:11  They say, "God has forsaken him; pursue him and seize him, for no one will rescue him."

Psa 71:12  Do not be far from me, my God; come quickly, God, to help me.

Psa 71:17  Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.

Psa 71:18  Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come.

Psa 71:19  Your righteousness, God, reaches to the heavens, you who have done great things. Who is like you, God?

Psa 71:22  I will praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, my God; I will sing praise to you with the lyre, Holy One of Israel.

Psa 72:1  Of Solomon. Endow the king with your justice, O God, the royal son with your righteousness.

Psa 72:18  Praise be to the LORD God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds.

Psa 73:1  A psalm of Asaph. Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart.

Psa 73:11  They say, "How would God know? Does the Most High know anything?"

Psa 73:17  till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny.

Psa 73:26  My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Psa 73:28  But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.

Psa 74:1  A maskil of Asaph. O God, why have you rejected us forever? Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture?

Psa 74:8  They said in their hearts, "We will crush them completely!" They burned every place where God was worshiped in the land.

Psa 74:9  We are given no signs from God; no prophets are left, and none of us knows how long this will be.

Psa 74:10  How long will the enemy mock you, God? Will the foe revile your name forever?

Psa 74:12  But God is my King from long ago; he brings salvation on the earth.

Psa 74:22  Rise up, O God, and defend your cause; remember how fools mock you all day long.

Psa 75:1  For the director of music. To the tune of "Do Not Destroy." A psalm of Asaph. A song. We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near; people tell of your wonderful deeds.

Psa 75:7  It is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another.

Psa 75:9  As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob,

Psa 76:1  For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of Asaph. A song. God is renowned in Judah; in Israel his name is great.

Psa 76:6  At your rebuke, God of Jacob, both horse and chariot lie still.

Psa 76:9  when you, God, rose up to judge, to save all the afflicted of the land.

Psa 76:11  Make vows to the LORD your God and fulfill them; let all the neighboring lands bring gifts to the One to be feared.

Psa 77:1  For the director of music. For Jeduthun. Of Asaph. A psalm. I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me.

Psa 77:3  I remembered you, God, and I groaned; I meditated, and my spirit grew faint.

Psa 77:9  Has God forgotten to be merciful? Has he in anger withheld his compassion?"

Psa 77:13  Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God?

Psa 77:14  You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.

Psa 77:16  The waters saw you, God, the waters saw you and writhed; the very depths were convulsed.

Psa 78:7  Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Psa 78:8  They would not be like their ancestors-- a stubborn and rebellious generation, whose hearts were not loyal to God, whose spirits were not faithful to him.

Psa 78:10  they did not keep God's covenant and refused to live by his law.

Psa 78:18  They willfully put God to the test by demanding the food they craved.

Psa 78:19  They spoke against God; they said, "Can God really spread a table in the wilderness?

Psa 78:22  for they did not believe in God or trust in his deliverance.

Psa 78:31  God's anger rose against them; he put to death the sturdiest among them, cutting down the young men of Israel.

Psa 78:34  Whenever God slew them, they would seek him; they eagerly turned to him again.

Psa 78:35  They remembered that God was their Rock, that God Most High was their Redeemer.

Psa 78:41  Again and again they put God to the test; they vexed the Holy One of Israel.

Psa 78:56  But they put God to the test and rebelled against the Most High; they did not keep his statutes.

Psa 78:59  When God heard them, he was furious; he rejected Israel completely.

Psa 79:1  A psalm of Asaph. O God, the nations have invaded your inheritance; they have defiled your holy temple, they have reduced Jerusalem to rubble.

Psa 79:9  Help us, God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name's sake.

Psa 79:10  Why should the nations say, "Where is their God?" Before our eyes, make known among the nations that you avenge the outpoured blood of your servants.

Psa 80:3  Restore us, O God; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved.

Psa 80:4  How long, LORD God Almighty, will your anger smolder against the prayers of your people?

Psa 80:7  Restore us, God Almighty; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved.

Psa 80:14  Return to us, God Almighty! Look down from heaven and see! Watch over this vine,

Psa 80:19  Restore us, LORD God Almighty; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved.

Psa 81:1  For the director of music. According to gittith. Of Asaph. Sing for joy to God our strength; shout aloud to the God of Jacob!

Psa 81:4  this is a decree for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob.

Psa 81:5  When God went out against Egypt, he established it as a statute for Joseph. I heard an unknown voice say:

Psa 81:9  You shall have no foreign god among you; you shall not worship any god other than me.

Psa 81:10  I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.

Psa 82:1  A psalm of Asaph. God presides in the great assembly; he renders judgment among the "gods":

Psa 82:8  Rise up, O God, judge the earth, for all the nations are your inheritance.

Psa 83:1  A song. A psalm of Asaph. O God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God.

Psa 83:12  who said, "Let us take possession of the pasturelands of God."

Psa 83:13  Make them like tumbleweed, my God, like chaff before the wind.

Psa 84:2  My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.

Psa 84:3  Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young-- a place near your altar, LORD Almighty, my King and my God.

Psa 84:7  They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.

Psa 84:8  Hear my prayer, LORD God Almighty; listen to me, God of Jacob.

Psa 84:9  Look on our shield, O God; look with favor on your anointed one.

Psa 84:10  Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

Psa 84:11  For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.

Psa 85:4  Restore us again, God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us.

Psa 85:8  I will listen to what God the LORD says; he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants-- but let them not turn to folly.

Psa 86:2  Guard my life, for I am faithful to you; save your servant who trusts in you. You are my God;

Psa 86:10  For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God.

Psa 86:12  I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.

Psa 86:14  Arrogant foes are attacking me, O God; ruthless people are trying to kill me-- they have no regard for you.

Psa 86:15  But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.

Psa 87:3  Glorious things are said of you, city of God:

Psa 88:1  A song. A psalm of the Sons of Korah. For the director of music. According to mahalath leannoth. A maskil of Heman the Ezrahite. LORD, you are the God who saves me; day and night I cry out to you.

Psa 89:7  In the council of the holy ones God is greatly feared; he is more awesome than all who surround him.

Psa 89:8  Who is like you, LORD God Almighty? You, LORD, are mighty, and your faithfulness surrounds you.

Psa 89:26  He will call out to me, 'You are my Father, my God, the Rock my Savior.'

Psa 90:1  A prayer of Moses the man of God. Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.

Psa 90:2  Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

Psa 90:17  May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us-- yes, establish the work of our hands.

Psa 91:2  I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."

Psa 92:13  planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God.

Psa 94:1  The LORD is a God who avenges. O God who avenges, shine forth.

Psa 94:7  They say, "The LORD does not see; the God of Jacob takes no notice."

Psa 94:22  But the LORD has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge.

Psa 94:23  He will repay them for their sins and destroy them for their wickedness; the LORD our God will destroy them.

Psa 95:3  For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods.

Psa 95:7  for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Today, if only you would hear his voice,

Psa 98:3  He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

Psa 99:5  Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy.

Psa 99:8  LORD our God, you answered them; you were to Israel a forgiving God, though you punished their misdeeds.

Psa 99:9  Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his holy mountain, for the LORD our God is holy.

Psa 100:3  Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Psa 102:24  So I said: "Do not take me away, my God, in the midst of my days; your years go on through all generations.

Psa 104:1  Praise the LORD, my soul. LORD my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty.

Psa 104:21  The lions roar for their prey and seek their food from God.

Psa 104:33  I will sing to the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

Psa 105:7  He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.

Psa 106:14  In the desert they gave in to their craving; in the wilderness they put God to the test.

Psa 106:20  They exchanged their glorious God for an image of a bull, which eats grass.

Psa 106:21  They forgot the God who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt,

Psa 106:33  for they rebelled against the Spirit of God, and rash words came from Moses' lips.

Psa 106:47  Save us, LORD our God, and gather us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise.

Psa 106:48  Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Let all the people say, "Amen!" Praise the LORD.

Psa 107:11  because they rebelled against God's commands and despised the plans of the Most High.

Psa 108:1  A song. A psalm of David. My heart, O God, is steadfast; I will sing and make music with all my soul.

Psa 108:5  Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.

Psa 108:7  God has spoken from his sanctuary: "In triumph I will parcel out Shechem and measure off the Valley of Sukkoth.

Psa 108:11  Is it not you, God, you who have rejected us and no longer go out with our armies?

Psa 108:13  With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.

Psa 109:1  For the director of music. Of David. A psalm. My God, whom I praise, do not remain silent,

Psa 109:26  Help me, LORD my God; save me according to your unfailing love.

Psa 113:5  Who is like the LORD our God, the One who sits enthroned on high,

Psa 114:2  Judah became God's sanctuary, Israel his dominion.

Psa 114:7  Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob,

Psa 115:2  Why do the nations say, "Where is their God?"

Psa 115:3  Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him.

Psa 116:5  The LORD is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion.

Psa 118:27  The LORD is God, and he has made his light shine on us. With boughs in hand, join in the festal procession up to the horns of the altar.

Psa 118:28  You are my God, and I will praise you; you are my God, and I will exalt you.

Psa 119:115  Away from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God!

Psa 119:116  Sustain me, my God, according to your promise, and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed.

Psa 122:9  For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your prosperity.

Psa 123:2  As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a female slave look to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, till he shows us his mercy.

Psa 133:1  A song of ascents. Of David. How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity!

Psa 135:2  you who minister in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God.

Psa 136:2  Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever.

Psa 136:26  Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.

Psa 139:17  How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!

Psa 139:19  If only you, God, would slay the wicked! Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty!

Psa 139:23  Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.

Psa 140:6  I say to the LORD, "You are my God." Hear, LORD, my cry for mercy.

Psa 143:10  Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.

Psa 144:2  He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.

Psa 144:9  I will sing a new song to you, my God; on the ten-stringed lyre I will make music to you,

Psa 144:15  Blessed is the people of whom this is true; blessed is the people whose God is the LORD.

Psa 145:1  A psalm of praise. Of David. I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever.

Psa 146:2  I will praise the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

Psa 146:5  Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD their God.

Psa 146:10  The LORD reigns forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations. Praise the LORD.

Psa 147:1  Praise the LORD. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him!

Psa 147:7  Sing to the LORD with grateful praise; make music to our God on the harp.

Psa 147:12  Extol the LORD, Jerusalem; praise your God, Zion.

Psa 149:6  May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands,

Psa 150:1  Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens.

Pro 2:5  then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.

Pro 2:17  who has left the partner of her youth and ignored the covenant she made before God.

Pro 3:4  Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.

Pro 5:14  And I was soon in serious trouble in the assembly of God's people."

Pro 11:26  People curse the one who hoards grain, but they pray God's blessing on the one who is willing to sell.

Pro 14:31  Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.

Pro 14:32  When calamity comes, the wicked are brought down, but even in death the righteous seek refuge in God.

Pro 17:11  Evildoers foster rebellion against God; the messenger of death will be sent against them.

Pro 25:2  It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.

Pro 28:14  Blessed is the one who always trembles before God, but whoever hardens their heart falls into trouble.

Pro 30:1  The sayings of Agur son of Jakeh--an inspired utterance. This man's utterance to Ithiel: "I am weary, God, but I can prevail.

Pro 30:5  "Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.

Pro 30:9  Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, 'Who is the LORD?' Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.

Ecc 1:13  I applied my mind to study and to explore by wisdom all that is done under the heavens. What a heavy burden God has laid on mankind!

Ecc 2:24  A person can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in their own toil. This too, I see, is from the hand of God,

Ecc 2:26  To the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.

Ecc 3:10  I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race.

Ecc 3:11  He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

Ecc 3:13  That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil--this is the gift of God.

Ecc 3:14  I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him.

Ecc 3:15  Whatever is has already been, and what will be has been before; and God will call the past to account.

Ecc 3:17  I said to myself, "God will bring into judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time to judge every deed."

Ecc 3:18  I also said to myself, "As for humans, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals.

Ecc 5:1  Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. Go near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools, who do not know that they do wrong.

Ecc 5:2  Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few.

Ecc 5:4  When you make a vow to God, do not delay to fulfill it. He has no pleasure in fools; fulfill your vow.

Ecc 5:6  Do not let your mouth lead you into sin. And do not protest to the temple messenger, "My vow was a mistake." Why should God be angry at what you say and destroy the work of your hands?

Ecc 5:7  Much dreaming and many words are meaningless. Therefore fear God.

Ecc 5:18  This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them--for this is their lot.

Ecc 5:19  Moreover, when God gives someone wealth and possessions, and the ability to enjoy them, to accept their lot and be happy in their toil--this is a gift of God.

Ecc 5:20  They seldom reflect on the days of their life, because God keeps them occupied with gladness of heart.

Ecc 6:2  God gives some people wealth, possessions and honor, so that they lack nothing their hearts desire, but God does not grant them the ability to enjoy them, and strangers enjoy them instead. This is meaningless, a grievous evil.

Ecc 7:13  Consider what God has done: Who can straighten what he has made crooked?

Ecc 7:14  When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider this: God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, no one can discover anything about their future.

Ecc 7:18  It is good to grasp the one and not let go of the other. Whoever fears God will avoid all extremes.

Ecc 7:26  I find more bitter than death the woman who is a snare, whose heart is a trap and whose hands are chains. The man who pleases God will escape her, but the sinner she will ensnare.

Ecc 7:29  This only have I found: God created mankind upright, but they have gone in search of many schemes."

Ecc 8:2  Obey the king's command, I say, because you took an oath before God.

Ecc 8:12  Although a wicked person who commits a hundred crimes may live a long time, I know that it will go better with those who fear God, who are reverent before him.

Ecc 8:13  Yet because the wicked do not fear God, it will not go well with them, and their days will not lengthen like a shadow.

Ecc 8:15  So I commend the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany them in their toil all the days of the life God has given them under the sun.

Ecc 8:17  then I saw all that God has done. No one can comprehend what goes on under the sun. Despite all their efforts to search it out, no one can discover its meaning. Even if the wise claim they know, they cannot really comprehend it.

Ecc 9:1  So I reflected on all this and concluded that the righteous and the wise and what they do are in God's hands, but no one knows whether love or hate awaits them.

Ecc 9:7  Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for God has already approved what you do.

Ecc 9:9  Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun--all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun.

Ecc 11:5  As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.

Ecc 11:9  You who are young, be happy while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth. Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment.

Ecc 12:7  and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

Ecc 12:13  Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.

Ecc 12:14  For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.

Isa 1:10  Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom; listen to the instruction of our God, you people of Gomorrah!

Isa 2:3  Many peoples will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths." The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Isa 5:16  But the LORD Almighty will be exalted by his justice, and the holy God will be proved holy by his righteous acts.

Isa 5:19  to those who say, "Let God hurry; let him hasten his work so we may see it. The plan of the Holy One of Israel-- let it approach, let it come into view, so we may know it."

Isa 7:11  "Ask the LORD your God for a sign, whether in the deepest depths or in the highest heights."

Isa 7:13  Then Isaiah said, "Hear now, you house of David! Is it not enough to try the patience of humans? Will you try the patience of my God also?

Isa 8:10  Devise your strategy, but it will be thwarted; propose your plan, but it will not stand, for God is with us.

Isa 8:16  Bind up this testimony of warning and seal up God's instruction among my disciples.

Isa 8:19  When someone tells you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?

Isa 8:20  Consult God's instruction and the testimony of warning. If anyone does not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn.

Isa 8:21  Distressed and hungry, they will roam through the land; when they are famished, they will become enraged and, looking upward, will curse their king and their God.

Isa 9:6  For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isa 17:6  Yet some gleanings will remain, as when an olive tree is beaten, leaving two or three olives on the topmost branches, four or five on the fruitful boughs," declares the LORD, the God of Israel.

Isa 17:10  You have forgotten God your Savior; you have not remembered the Rock, your fortress. Therefore, though you set out the finest plants and plant imported vines,

Isa 21:10  My people who are crushed on the threshing floor, I tell you what I have heard from the LORD Almighty, from the God of Israel.

Isa 21:17  The survivors of the archers, the warriors of Kedar, will be few." The LORD, the God of Israel, has spoken.

Isa 24:15  Therefore in the east give glory to the LORD; exalt the name of the LORD, the God of Israel, in the islands of the sea.

Isa 25:1  LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.

Isa 25:9  In that day they will say, "Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the LORD, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation."

Isa 25:11  They will stretch out their hands in it, as swimmers stretch out their hands to swim. God will bring down their pride despite the cleverness of their hands.

Isa 26:1  In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah: We have a strong city; God makes salvation its walls and ramparts.

Isa 26:13  LORD our God, other lords besides you have ruled over us, but your name alone do we honor.

Isa 28:26  His God instructs him and teaches him the right way.

Isa 29:23  When they see among them their children, the work of my hands, they will keep my name holy; they will acknowledge the holiness of the Holy One of Jacob, and will stand in awe of the God of Israel.

Isa 31:3  But the Egyptians are mere mortals and not God; their horses are flesh and not spirit. When the LORD stretches out his hand, those who help will stumble, those who are helped will fall; all will perish together.

Isa 34:11  The desert owl and screech owl will possess it; the great owl and the raven will nest there. God will stretch out over Edom the measuring line of chaos and the plumb line of desolation.

Isa 35:2  it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, the splendor of Carmel and Sharon; they will see the glory of the LORD, the splendor of our God.

Isa 35:4  say to those with fearful hearts, "Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you."

Isa 36:7  But if you say to me, "We are depending on the LORD our God"--isn't he the one whose high places and altars Hezekiah removed, saying to Judah and Jerusalem, "You must worship before this altar"?

Isa 37:4  It may be that the LORD your God will hear the words of the field commander, whom his master, the king of Assyria, has sent to ridicule the living God, and that he will rebuke him for the words the LORD your God has heard. Therefore pray for the remnant that still survives."

Isa 37:16  "LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.

Isa 37:17  Give ear, LORD, and hear; open your eyes, LORD, and see; listen to all the words Sennacherib has sent to ridicule the living God.

Isa 37:20  Now, LORD our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you, LORD, are the only God."

Isa 37:21  Then Isaiah son of Amoz sent a message to Hezekiah: "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Because you have prayed to me concerning Sennacherib king of Assyria,

Isa 37:38  One day, while he was worshiping in the temple of his god Nisrok, his sons Adrammelek and Sharezer killed him with the sword, and they escaped to the land of Ararat. And Esarhaddon his son succeeded him as king.

Isa 40:1  Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.

Isa 40:3  A voice of one calling: "In the wilderness prepare the way for the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Isa 40:8  The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever."

Isa 40:9  You who bring good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain. You who bring good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with a shout, lift it up, do not be afraid; say to the towns of Judah, "Here is your God!"

Isa 40:18  With whom, then, will you compare God? To what image will you liken him?

Isa 40:27  Why do you complain, Jacob? Why do you say, Israel, "My way is hidden from the LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God"?

Isa 40:28  Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

Isa 41:10  So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isa 41:13  For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

Isa 41:17  "The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the LORD will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.

Isa 42:5  This is what God the LORD says-- the Creator of the heavens, who stretches them out, who spreads out the earth with all that springs from it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it:

Isa 43:3  For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead.

Isa 43:10  "You are my witnesses," declares the LORD, "and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me.

Isa 43:12  I have revealed and saved and proclaimed-- I, and not some foreign god among you. You are my witnesses," declares the LORD, "that I am God.

Isa 44:6  "This is what the LORD says-- Israel's King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God.

Isa 44:8  Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one."

Isa 44:10  Who shapes a god and casts an idol, which can profit nothing?

Isa 44:15  It is used as fuel for burning; some of it he takes and warms himself, he kindles a fire and bakes bread. But he also fashions a god and worships it; he makes an idol and bows down to it.

Isa 44:17  From the rest he makes a god, his idol; he bows down to it and worships. He prays to it and says, "Save me! You are my god!"

Isa 45:3  I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.

Isa 45:5  I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me,

Isa 45:14  This is what the LORD says: "The products of Egypt and the merchandise of Cush, and those tall Sabeans-- they will come over to you and will be yours; they will trudge behind you, coming over to you in chains. They will bow down before you and plead with you, saying, 'Surely God is with you, and there is no other; there is no other god.'"

Isa 45:15  Truly you are a God who has been hiding himself, the God and Savior of Israel.

Isa 45:18  For this is what the LORD says-- he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited-- he says: "I am the LORD, and there is no other.

Isa 45:21  Declare what is to be, present it-- let them take counsel together. Who foretold this long ago, who declared it from the distant past? Was it not I, the LORD? And there is no God apart from me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none but me.

Isa 45:22  "Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.

Isa 46:6  Some pour out gold from their bags and weigh out silver on the scales; they hire a goldsmith to make it into a god, and they bow down and worship it.

Isa 46:9  Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me.

Isa 48:1  "Listen to this, you descendants of Jacob, you who are called by the name of Israel and come from the line of Judah, you who take oaths in the name of the LORD and invoke the God of Israel-- but not in truth or righteousness--

Isa 48:2  you who call yourselves citizens of the holy city and claim to rely on the God of Israel-- the LORD Almighty is his name:

Isa 48:5  Therefore I told you these things long ago; before they happened I announced them to you so that you could not say, 'My images brought them about; my wooden image and metal god ordained them.'

Isa 48:17  This is what the LORD says-- your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.

Isa 49:4  But I said, "I have labored in vain; I have spent my strength for nothing at all. Yet what is due me is in the LORD's hand, and my reward is with my God."

Isa 49:5  And now the LORD says-- he who formed me in the womb to be his servant to bring Jacob back to him and gather Israel to himself, for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD and my God has been my strength--

Isa 50:10  Who among you fears the LORD and obeys the word of his servant? Let the one who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the LORD and rely on their God.

Isa 51:15  For I am the LORD your God, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar-- the LORD Almighty is his name.

Isa 51:20  Your children have fainted; they lie at every street corner, like antelope caught in a net. They are filled with the wrath of the LORD, with the rebuke of your God.

Isa 51:22  This is what your Sovereign LORD says, your God, who defends his people: "See, I have taken out of your hand the cup that made you stagger; from that cup, the goblet of my wrath, you will never drink again.

Isa 54:6  The LORD will call you back as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit-- a wife who married young, only to be rejected," says your God.

Isa 55:5  Surely you will summon nations you know not, and nations you do not know will come running to you, because of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has endowed you with splendor."

Isa 55:7  Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

Isa 58:2  For day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God. They ask me for just decisions and seem eager for God to come near them.

Isa 61:2  to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,

Isa 61:6  And you will be called priests of the LORD, you will be named ministers of our God. You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast.

Isa 61:10  I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

Isa 62:3  You will be a crown of splendor in the LORD's hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God.

Isa 62:5  As a young man marries a young woman, so will your Builder marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.

Isa 64:4  Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.

Isa 65:16  Whoever invokes a blessing in the land will do so by the one true God; whoever takes an oath in the land will swear by the one true God. For the past troubles will be forgotten and hidden from my eyes.

Isa 66:9  Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery?" says the LORD. "Do I close up the womb when I bring to delivery?" says your God.

Jer 2:11  Has a nation ever changed its gods? (Yet they are not gods at all.) But my people have exchanged their glorious God for worthless idols.

Jer 2:17  Have you not brought this on yourselves by forsaking the LORD your God when he led you in the way?

Jer 38:17  Then Jeremiah said to Zedekiah, "This is what the LORD God Almighty, the God of Israel, says: 'If you surrender to the officers of the king of Babylon, your life will be spared and this city will not be burned down; you and your family will live.

Jer 39:16  "Go and tell Ebed-Melek the Cushite, 'This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: I am about to fulfill my words against this city--words concerning disaster, not prosperity. At that time they will be fulfilled before your eyes.

Jer 40:2  When the commander of the guard found Jeremiah, he said to him, "The LORD your God decreed this disaster for this place.

Jer 42:2  Jeremiah the prophet and said to him, "Please hear our petition and pray to the LORD your God for this entire remnant. For as you now see, though we were once many, now only a few are left.

Jer 42:3  Pray that the LORD your God will tell us where we should go and what we should do."

Jer 42:4  "I have heard you," replied Jeremiah the prophet. "I will certainly pray to the LORD your God as you have requested; I will tell you everything the LORD says and will keep nothing back from you."

Jer 42:5  Then they said to Jeremiah, "May the LORD be a true and faithful witness against us if we do not act in accordance with everything the LORD your God sends you to tell us.

Jer 42:6  Whether it is favorable or unfavorable, we will obey the LORD our God, to whom we are sending you, so that it will go well with us, for we will obey the LORD our God."

Jer 42:9  He said to them, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, to whom you sent me to present your petition, says:

Jer 42:13  "However, if you say, 'We will not stay in this land,' and so disobey the LORD your God,

Jer 42:15  then hear the word of the LORD, you remnant of Judah. This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: 'If you are determined to go to Egypt and you do go to settle there,

Jer 42:18  This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: 'As my anger and wrath have been poured out on those who lived in Jerusalem, so will my wrath be poured out on you when you go to Egypt. You will be a curse and an object of horror, a curse and an object of reproach; you will never see this place again.'

Jer 42:20  that you made a fatal mistake when you sent me to the LORD your God and said, 'Pray to the LORD our God for us; tell us everything he says and we will do it.'

Jer 42:21  I have told you today, but you still have not obeyed the LORD your God in all he sent me to tell you.

Jer 43:1  When Jeremiah had finished telling the people all the words of the LORD their God--everything the LORD had sent him to tell them--

Jer 43:2  Azariah son of Hoshaiah and Johanan son of Kareah and all the arrogant men said to Jeremiah, "You are lying! The LORD our God has not sent you to say, 'You must not go to Egypt to settle there.'

Jer 43:10  Then say to them, 'This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: I will send for my servant Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and I will set his throne over these stones I have buried here; he will spread his royal canopy above them.

Jer 44:2  "This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: You saw the great disaster I brought on Jerusalem and on all the towns of Judah. Today they lie deserted and in ruins

Jer 44:7  "Now this is what the LORD God Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Why bring such great disaster on yourselves by cutting off from Judah the men and women, the children and infants, and so leave yourselves without a remnant?

Jer 44:11  "Therefore this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: I am determined to bring disaster on you and to destroy all Judah.

Jer 44:25  This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: You and your wives have done what you said you would do when you promised, 'We will certainly carry out the vows we made to burn incense and pour out drink offerings to the Queen of Heaven.' "Go ahead then, do what you promised! Keep your vows!

Jer 45:2  "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says to you, Baruch:

Jer 46:25  The LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: "I am about to bring punishment on Amon god of Thebes, on Pharaoh, on Egypt and her gods and her kings, and on those who rely on Pharaoh.

Jer 48:1  Concerning Moab: This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: "Woe to Nebo, for it will be ruined. Kiriathaim will be disgraced and captured; the stronghold will be disgraced and shattered.

Jer 50:4  "In those days, at that time," declares the LORD, "the people of Israel and the people of Judah together will go in tears to seek the LORD their God.

Jer 50:18  Therefore this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: "I will punish the king of Babylon and his land as I punished the king of Assyria.

Jer 50:28  Listen to the fugitives and refugees from Babylon declaring in Zion how the LORD our God has taken vengeance, vengeance for his temple.

Jer 51:5  For Israel and Judah have not been forsaken by their God, the LORD Almighty, though their land is full of guilt before the Holy One of Israel.

Jer 51:10  "'The LORD has vindicated us; come, let us tell in Zion what the LORD our God has done.'

Jer 51:33  This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: "Daughter Babylon is like a threshing floor at the time it is trampled; the time to harvest her will soon come."

Jer 51:56  A destroyer will come against Babylon; her warriors will be captured, and their bows will be broken. For the LORD is a God of retribution; he will repay in full.

Lam 3:41  Let us lift up our hearts and our hands to God in heaven, and say:

Eze 1:1  In my thirtieth year, in the fourth month on the fifth day, while I was among the exiles by the Kebar River, the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God.

Eze 8:3  He stretched out what looked like a hand and took me by the hair of my head. The Spirit lifted me up between earth and heaven and in visions of God he took me to Jerusalem, to the entrance of the north gate of the inner court, where the idol that provokes to jealousy stood.

Eze 8:4  And there before me was the glory of the God of Israel, as in the vision I had seen in the plain.

Eze 8:14  Then he brought me to the entrance of the north gate of the house of the LORD, and I saw women sitting there, mourning the god Tammuz.

Eze 9:3  Now the glory of the God of Israel went up from above the cherubim, where it had been, and moved to the threshold of the temple. Then the LORD called to the man clothed in linen who had the writing kit at his side

Eze 10:5  The sound of the wings of the cherubim could be heard as far away as the outer court, like the voice of God Almighty when he speaks.

Eze 10:19  While I watched, the cherubim spread their wings and rose from the ground, and as they went, the wheels went with them. They stopped at the entrance of the east gate of the LORD's house, and the glory of the God of Israel was above them.

Eze 10:20  These were the living creatures I had seen beneath the God of Israel by the Kebar River, and I realized that they were cherubim.

Eze 11:20  Then they will follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. They will be my people, and I will be their God.

Eze 11:22  Then the cherubim, with the wheels beside them, spread their wings, and the glory of the God of Israel was above them.

Eze 11:24  The Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the exiles in Babylonia in the vision given by the Spirit of God. Then the vision I had seen went up from me,

Eze 14:11  Then the people of Israel will no longer stray from me, nor will they defile themselves anymore with all their sins. They will be my people, and I will be their God, declares the Sovereign LORD.'"

Eze 20:5  and say to them: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: On the day I chose Israel, I swore with uplifted hand to the descendants of Jacob and revealed myself to them in Egypt. With uplifted hand I said to them, "I am the LORD your God."

Eze 20:7  And I said to them, "Each of you, get rid of the vile images you have set your eyes on, and do not defile yourselves with the idols of Egypt. I am the LORD your God."

Eze 20:19  I am the LORD your God; follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.

Eze 20:20  Keep my Sabbaths holy, that they may be a sign between us. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God."

Eze 28:2  "Son of man, say to the ruler of Tyre, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: "'In the pride of your heart you say, "I am a god; I sit on the throne of a god in the heart of the seas." But you are a mere mortal and not a god, though you think you are as wise as a god.

Eze 28:6  "'Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "'Because you think you are wise, as wise as a god,

Eze 28:9  Will you then say, "I am a god," in the presence of those who kill you? You will be but a mortal, not a god, in the hands of those who slay you.

Eze 28:13  You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: carnelian, chrysolite and emerald, topaz, onyx and jasper, lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared.

Eze 28:14  You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones.

Eze 28:16  Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones.

Eze 28:26  They will live there in safety and will build houses and plant vineyards; they will live in safety when I inflict punishment on all their neighbors who maligned them. Then they will know that I am the LORD their God.'"

Eze 31:8  The cedars in the garden of God could not rival it, nor could the junipers equal its boughs, nor could the plane trees compare with its branches-- no tree in the garden of God could match its beauty.

Eze 31:9  I made it beautiful with abundant branches, the envy of all the trees of Eden in the garden of God.

Eze 34:24  I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David will be prince among them. I the LORD have spoken.

Eze 34:30  Then they will know that I, the LORD their God, am with them and that they, the Israelites, are my people, declares the Sovereign LORD.

Eze 34:31  You are my sheep, the sheep of my pasture, and I am your God, declares the Sovereign LORD.'"

Eze 36:28  Then you will live in the land I gave your ancestors; you will be my people, and I will be your God.

Eze 37:23  They will no longer defile themselves with their idols and vile images or with any of their offenses, for I will save them from all their sinful backsliding, and I will cleanse them. They will be my people, and I will be their God.

Eze 37:27  My dwelling place will be with them; I will be their God, and they will be my people.

Eze 39:22  From that day forward the people of Israel will know that I am the LORD their God.

Eze 39:28  Then they will know that I am the LORD their God, for though I sent them into exile among the nations, I will gather them to their own land, not leaving any behind.

Eze 40:2  In visions of God he took me to the land of Israel and set me on a very high mountain, on whose south side were some buildings that looked like a city.

Eze 43:2  and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice was like the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his glory.

Eze 44:2  The LORD said to me, "This gate is to remain shut. It must not be opened; no one may enter through it. It is to remain shut because the LORD, the God of Israel, has entered through it.

Dan 1:2  And the Lord delivered Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, along with some of the articles from the temple of God. These he carried off to the temple of his god in Babylonia and put in the treasure house of his god.

Dan 1:9  Now God had caused the official to show favor and compassion to Daniel,

Dan 1:17  To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And Daniel could understand visions and dreams of all kinds.

Dan 2:18  He urged them to plead for mercy from the God of heaven concerning this mystery, so that he and his friends might not be executed with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.

Dan 2:19  During the night the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven

Dan 2:20  and said: "Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his.

Dan 2:23  I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors: You have given me wisdom and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you, you have made known to us the dream of the king."

Dan 2:28  but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries. He has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in days to come. Your dream and the visions that passed through your mind as you were lying in bed are these:

Dan 2:37  Your Majesty, you are the king of kings. The God of heaven has given you dominion and power and might and glory;

Dan 2:44  "In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever.

Dan 2:45  This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands--a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces. "The great God has shown the king what will take place in the future. The dream is true and its interpretation is trustworthy."

Dan 2:47  The king said to Daniel, "Surely your God is the God of gods and the Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, for you were able to reveal this mystery."

Dan 3:15  Now when you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, if you are ready to fall down and worship the image I made, very good. But if you do not worship it, you will be thrown immediately into a blazing furnace. Then what god will be able to rescue you from my hand?"

Dan 3:17  If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty's hand.

Dan 3:26  Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, "Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!" So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire,

Dan 3:28  Then Nebuchadnezzar said, "Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants! They trusted in him and defied the king's command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.

Dan 3:29  Therefore I decree that the people of any nation or language who say anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego be cut into pieces and their houses be turned into piles of rubble, for no other god can save in this way."

Dan 4:2  It is my pleasure to tell you about the miraculous signs and wonders that the Most High God has performed for me.

Dan 4:8  Finally, Daniel came into my presence and I told him the dream. (He is called Belteshazzar, after the name of my god, and the spirit of the holy gods is in him.)

Dan 5:3  So they brought in the gold goblets that had been taken from the temple of God in Jerusalem, and the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines drank from them.

Dan 5:18  "Your Majesty, the Most High God gave your father Nebuchadnezzar sovereignty and greatness and glory and splendor.

Dan 5:21  He was driven away from people and given the mind of an animal; he lived with the wild donkeys and ate grass like the ox; and his body was drenched with the dew of heaven, until he acknowledged that the Most High God is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and sets over them anyone he wishes.

Dan 5:23  Instead, you have set yourself up against the Lord of heaven. You had the goblets from his temple brought to you, and you and your nobles, your wives and your concubines drank wine from them. You praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or understand. But you did not honor the God who holds in his hand your life and all your ways.

Dan 5:26  "Here is what these words mean: Mene: God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end.

Dan 6:5  Finally these men said, "We will never find any basis for charges against this man Daniel unless it has something to do with the law of his God."

Dan 6:7  The royal administrators, prefects, satraps, advisers and governors have all agreed that the king should issue an edict and enforce the decree that anyone who prays to any god or human being during the next thirty days, except to you, Your Majesty, shall be thrown into the lions' den.

Dan 6:10  Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before.

Dan 6:11  Then these men went as a group and found Daniel praying and asking God for help.

Dan 6:12  So they went to the king and spoke to him about his royal decree: "Did you not publish a decree that during the next thirty days anyone who prays to any god or human being except to you, Your Majesty, would be thrown into the lions' den?" The king answered, "The decree stands--in accordance with the law of the Medes and Persians, which cannot be repealed."

Dan 6:16  So the king gave the order, and they brought Daniel and threw him into the lions' den. The king said to Daniel, "May your God, whom you serve continually, rescue you!"

Dan 6:20  When he came near the den, he called to Daniel in an anguished voice, "Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to rescue you from the lions?"

Dan 6:22  My God sent his angel, and he shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me, because I was found innocent in his sight. Nor have I ever done any wrong before you, Your Majesty."

Dan 6:23  The king was overjoyed and gave orders to lift Daniel out of the den. And when Daniel was lifted from the den, no wound was found on him, because he had trusted in his God.

Dan 6:26  "I issue a decree that in every part of my kingdom people must fear and reverence the God of Daniel. "For he is the living God and he endures forever; his kingdom will not be destroyed, his dominion will never end.

Dan 9:3  So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes.

Dan 9:4  I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed: "Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments,

Dan 9:9  The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him;

Dan 9:10  we have not obeyed the LORD our God or kept the laws he gave us through his servants the prophets.

Dan 9:11  All Israel has transgressed your law and turned away, refusing to obey you. "Therefore the curses and sworn judgments written in the Law of Moses, the servant of God, have been poured out on us, because we have sinned against you.

Dan 9:13  Just as it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come on us, yet we have not sought the favor of the LORD our God by turning from our sins and giving attention to your truth.

Dan 9:14  The LORD did not hesitate to bring the disaster on us, for the LORD our God is righteous in everything he does; yet we have not obeyed him.

Dan 9:15  "Now, Lord our God, who brought your people out of Egypt with a mighty hand and who made for yourself a name that endures to this day, we have sinned, we have done wrong.

Dan 9:17  "Now, our God, hear the prayers and petitions of your servant. For your sake, Lord, look with favor on your desolate sanctuary.

Dan 9:18  Give ear, our God, and hear; open your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears your Name. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy.

Dan 9:19  Lord, listen! Lord, forgive! Lord, hear and act! For your sake, my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name."

Dan 9:20  While I was speaking and praying, confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and making my request to the LORD my God for his holy hill--

Dan 10:12  Then he continued, "Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them.

Dan 11:32  With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist him.

Dan 11:36  "The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place.

Dan 11:37  He will show no regard for the gods of his ancestors or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all.

Dan 11:38  Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his ancestors he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts.

Dan 11:39  He will attack the mightiest fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will distribute the land at a price.

Hos 1:7  Yet I will show love to Judah; and I will save them--not by bow, sword or battle, or by horses and horsemen, but I, the LORD their God, will save them."

Hos 1:9  Then the LORD said, "Call him Lo-Ammi (which means "not my people"), for you are not my people, and I am not your God.

Hos 1:10  "Yet the Israelites will be like the sand on the seashore, which cannot be measured or counted. In the place where it was said to them, 'You are not my people,' they will be called 'children of the living God.'

Hos 2:23  I will plant her for myself in the land; I will show my love to the one I called 'Not my loved one.' I will say to those called 'Not my people,' 'You are my people'; and they will say, 'You are my God.'"

Hos 3:5  Afterward the Israelites will return and seek the LORD their God and David their king. They will come trembling to the LORD and to his blessings in the last days.

Hos 4:1  Hear the word of the LORD, you Israelites, because the LORD has a charge to bring against you who live in the land: "There is no faithfulness, no love, no acknowledgment of God in the land.

Hos 4:6  my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. "Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.

Hos 4:7  The more priests there were, the more they sinned against me; they exchanged their glorious God for something disgraceful.

Hos 4:12  My people consult a wooden idol, and a diviner's rod speaks to them. A spirit of prostitution leads them astray; they are unfaithful to their God.

Hos 5:4  "Their deeds do not permit them to return to their God. A spirit of prostitution is in their heart; they do not acknowledge the LORD.

Hos 6:6  For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings.

Hos 7:10  Israel's arrogance testifies against him, but despite all this he does not return to the LORD his God or search for him.

Hos 8:2  Israel cries out to me, 'Our God, we acknowledge you!'

Hos 8:6  They are from Israel! This calf--a metalworker has made it; it is not God. It will be broken in pieces, that calf of Samaria.

Hos 9:1  Do not rejoice, Israel; do not be jubilant like the other nations. For you have been unfaithful to your God; you love the wages of a prostitute at every threshing floor.

Hos 9:8  The prophet, along with my God, is the watchman over Ephraim, yet snares await him on all his paths, and hostility in the house of his God.

Hos 9:9  They have sunk deep into corruption, as in the days of Gibeah. God will remember their wickedness and punish them for their sins.

Hos 9:17  My God will reject them because they have not obeyed him; they will be wanderers among the nations.

Hos 11:7  My people are determined to turn from me. Even though they call me God Most High, I will by no means exalt them.

Hos 11:9  I will not carry out my fierce anger, nor will I devastate Ephraim again. For I am God, and not a man-- the Holy One among you. I will not come against their cities.

Hos 11:12  Ephraim has surrounded me with lies, Israel with deceit. And Judah is unruly against God, even against the faithful Holy One.

Hos 12:3  In the womb he grasped his brother's heel; as a man he struggled with God.

Hos 12:5  the LORD God Almighty, the LORD is his name!

Hos 12:6  But you must return to your God; maintain love and justice, and wait for your God always.

Hos 12:9  "I have been the LORD your God ever since you came out of Egypt; I will make you live in tents again, as in the days of your appointed festivals.

Hos 13:4  "But I have been the LORD your God ever since you came out of Egypt. You shall acknowledge no God but me, no Savior except me.

Hos 13:16  The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open."

Hos 14:1  Return, Israel, to the LORD your God. Your sins have been your downfall!

Joe 1:13  Put on sackcloth, you priests, and mourn; wail, you who minister before the altar. Come, spend the night in sackcloth, you who minister before my God; for the grain offerings and drink offerings are withheld from the house of your God.

Joe 1:14  Declare a holy fast; call a sacred assembly. Summon the elders and all who live in the land to the house of the LORD your God, and cry out to the LORD.

Joe 1:16  Has not the food been cut off before our very eyes-- joy and gladness from the house of our God?

Joe 2:13  Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity.

Joe 2:14  Who knows? He may turn and relent and leave behind a blessing-- grain offerings and drink offerings for the LORD your God.

Joe 2:17  Let the priests, who minister before the LORD, weep between the portico and the altar. Let them say, "Spare your people, LORD. Do not make your inheritance an object of scorn, a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, 'Where is their God?'"

Joe 2:23  Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the LORD your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.

Joe 2:26  You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the LORD your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed.

Joe 2:27  Then you will know that I am in Israel, that I am the LORD your God, and that there is no other; never again will my people be shamed.

Joe 3:17  "Then you will know that I, the LORD your God, dwell in Zion, my holy hill. Jerusalem will be holy; never again will foreigners invade her.

Amo 2:8  They lie down beside every altar on garments taken in pledge. In the house of their god they drink wine taken as fines.

Amo 3:13  "Hear this and testify against the descendants of Jacob," declares the Lord, the LORD God Almighty.

Amo 4:12  "Therefore this is what I will do to you, Israel, and because I will do this to you, Israel, prepare to meet your God."

Amo 4:13  He who forms the mountains, who creates the wind, and who reveals his thoughts to mankind, who turns dawn to darkness, and treads on the heights of the earth-- the LORD God Almighty is his name.

Amo 5:14  Seek good, not evil, that you may live. Then the LORD God Almighty will be with you, just as you say he is.

Amo 5:15  Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts. Perhaps the LORD God Almighty will have mercy on the remnant of Joseph.

Amo 5:16  Therefore this is what the Lord, the LORD God Almighty, says: "There will be wailing in all the streets and cries of anguish in every public square. The farmers will be summoned to weep and the mourners to wail.

Amo 5:26  You have lifted up the shrine of your king, the pedestal of your idols, the star of your god-- which you made for yourselves.

Amo 5:27  Therefore I will send you into exile beyond Damascus," says the LORD, whose name is God Almighty.

Amo 6:8  The Sovereign LORD has sworn by himself--the LORD God Almighty declares: "I abhor the pride of Jacob and detest his fortresses; I will deliver up the city and everything in it."

Amo 6:14  For the LORD God Almighty declares, "I will stir up a nation against you, Israel, that will oppress you all the way from Lebo Hamath to the valley of the Arabah."

Amo 8:14  Those who swear by the sin of Samaria-- who say, 'As surely as your god lives, Dan,' or, 'As surely as the god of Beersheba lives'-- they will fall, never to rise again."

Amo 9:15  I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them," says the LORD your God.

Jon 1:5  All the sailors were afraid and each cried out to his own god. And they threw the cargo into the sea to lighten the ship. But Jonah had gone below deck, where he lay down and fell into a deep sleep.

Jon 1:6  The captain went to him and said, "How can you sleep? Get up and call on your god! Maybe he will take notice of us so that we will not perish."

Jon 1:9  He answered, "I am a Hebrew and I worship the LORD, the God of heaven, who made the sea and the dry land."
