THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

1 Kings (Author Compiled by Isaiah and Jeremiah from records of Nathan, Gad, Iddo, Ahijah, Jehu and others.)

19:1And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword.

19:2Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time.

19:3And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there.

19:4But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers.

19:5And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat.

19:6And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again.

19:7And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee.

19:8And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God.

19:9And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?

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

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

20:2At the same time spake the LORD by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, Go and loose the sackcloth from off thy loins, and put off thy shoe from thy foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot.

20:3And the LORD said, Like as my servant Isaiah hath walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and wonder upon Egypt and upon Ethiopia;

Ezekiel (Author Ezekiel)

24:15Also the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

24:16Son of man, behold, I take away from thee the desire of thine eyes with a stroke: yet neither shalt thou mourn nor weep, neither shall thy tears run down.

24:17Forbear to cry, make no mourning for the dead, bind the tire of thine head upon thee, and put on thy shoes upon thy feet, and cover not thy lips, and eat not the bread of men.

24:18So I spake unto the people in the morning: and at even my wife died; and I did in the morning as I was commanded.

Hosea (Author Hosea)

1:2The beginning of the word of the LORD by Hosea. And the LORD said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the LORD.

Amos (Author Amos)

5:10They hate him that rebuketh in the gate, and they abhor him that speaketh uprightly.

7:10Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, Amos hath conspired against thee in the midst of the house of Israel: the land is not able to bear all his words.

7:11For thus Amos saith, Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel shall surely be led away captive out of their own land.

7:12Also Amaziah said unto Amos, O thou seer, go, flee thee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy there:

7:13But prophesy not again any more at Bethel: for it is the king's chapel, and it is the king's court.

7:14Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was an herdman, and a gatherer of sycomore fruit:

7:15And the LORD took me as I followed the flock, and the LORD said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.

7:16Now therefore hear thou the word of the LORD: Thou sayest, Prophesy not against Israel, and drop not thy word against the house of Isaac.

7:17Therefore thus saith the LORD; Thy wife shall be an harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be divided by line; and thou shalt die in a polluted land: and Israel shall surely go into captivity forth of his land.

Matthew (Author Matthew)

10:16Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

10:17But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

10:18And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

10:19But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.

10:20For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

10:21And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.

10:22And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

10:23But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.

10:24The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.

10:25It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?

10:26Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.

10:27What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

23:34Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:

John (Author John)

13:16Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.

1 Corinthians (Author Paul)

2:1And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.

2:2For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

2:3And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.

2:4And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

4:9For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.

4:10We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised.

4:11Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace;

4:12And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:

4:13Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.

2 Corinthians (Author Paul)

6:4But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,

6:5In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;

6:6By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,

6:7By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

6:8By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;

6:9As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;

6:10As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

7:5For, when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears.

11:23Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.

11:24Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.

11:25Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;

11:26In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;

11:27In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.

11:28Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.

11:29Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not?

11:30If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.

11:31The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.

11:32In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king kept the city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend me:

11:33And through a window in a basket was I let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.

12:7And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

12:8For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.

12:9And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

12:10Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

12:11I am become a fool in glorying; ye have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles, though I be nothing.

12:12Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.

Galatians (Author Paul)

4:13Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first.

4:14And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus.

Ephesians (Author Paul)

3:1For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,

3:13Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
