THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Exodus (Author Moses)

18:25And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.

18:26And they judged the people at all seasons: the hard causes they brought unto Moses, but every small matter they judged themselves.

Deuteronomy (Author Moses)

1:15So I took the chief of your tribes, wise men, and known, and made them heads over you, captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens, and officers among your tribes.

1:16And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.

1:17Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God's: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.

17:9And thou shalt come unto the priests the Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days, and enquire; and they shall shew thee the sentence of judgment:

Ruth (Author Samuel / Isaiah)

4:2And he took ten men of the elders of the city, and said, Sit ye down here. And they sat down.

4:3And he said unto the kinsman, Naomi, that is come again out of the country of Moab, selleth a parcel of land, which was our brother Elimelech's:

4:4And I thought to advertise thee, saying, Buy it before the inhabitants, and before the elders of my people. If thou wilt redeem it, redeem it: but if thou wilt not redeem it, then tell me, that I may know: for there is none to redeem it beside thee; and I am after thee. And he said, I will redeem it.

4:5Then said Boaz, What day thou buyest the field of the hand of Naomi, thou must buy it also of Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of the dead, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance.

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

26:29Of the Izharites, Chenaniah and his sons were for the outward business over Israel, for officers and judges.

26:30And of the Hebronites, Hashabiah and his brethren, men of valour, a thousand and seven hundred, were officers among them of Israel on this side Jordan westward in all the business of the LORD, and in the service of the king.

26:31Among the Hebronites was Jerijah the chief, even among the Hebronites, according to the generations of his fathers. In the fortieth year of the reign of David they were sought for, and there were found among them mighty men of valour at Jazer of Gilead.

26:32And his brethren, men of valour, were two thousand and seven hundred chief fathers, whom king David made rulers over the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh, for every matter pertaining to God, and affairs of the king.

19:8Moreover in Jerusalem did Jehoshaphat set of the Levites, and of the priests, and of the chief of the fathers of Israel, for the judgment of the LORD, and for controversies, when they returned to Jerusalem.

19:9And he charged them, saying, Thus shall ye do in the fear of the LORD, faithfully, and with a perfect heart.

19:10And what cause soever shall come to you of your brethren that dwell in their cities, between blood and blood, between law and commandment, statutes and judgments, ye shall even warn them that they trespass not against the LORD, and so wrath come upon you, and upon your brethren: this do, and ye shall not trespass.

19:11And, behold, Amariah the chief priest is over you in all matters of the LORD; and Zebadiah the son of Ishmael, the ruler of the house of Judah, for all the king's matters: also the Levites shall be officers before you. Deal courageously, and the LORD shall be with the good.

Matthew (Author Matthew)

26:54But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

26:55In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.

26:56But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.

26:57And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled.

26:58But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest's palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end.

26:59Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;

26:60But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,

26:61And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.

26:62And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?

26:63But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.

26:64Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

26:65Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.

26:66What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.

26:67Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,

26:68Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?

26:69Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.

26:70But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest.

26:71And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth.

Mark (Author John Mark)

14:53And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.

14:55And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none.

14:56For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.

14:57And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying,

14:58We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.

14:59But neither so did their witness agree together.

14:60And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?

14:61But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?

14:62And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

14:63Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses?

14:64Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.

14:65And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.

15:1And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate.

Luke (Author Luke)

22:50And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.

22:51And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.

22:52Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?

22:53When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

22:54Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest's house. And Peter followed afar off.

22:55And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them.

22:56But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.

22:57And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.

22:58And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.

22:59And about the space of one hour after another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a Galilaean.

22:60And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.

22:61And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

22:62And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.

22:63And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.

22:64And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?

22:65And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.

22:66And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying,

22:67Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:

22:68And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.

22:69Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.

22:70Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.

22:71And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.

John (Author John)

18:13And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.

18:14Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.

18:15And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest.

18:16But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.

18:17Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou also one of this man's disciples? He saith, I am not.

18:18And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.

18:19The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.

18:20Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.

18:21Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.

18:22And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?

18:23Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?

18:24Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.

18:25And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.

18:26One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him?

18:27Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.

18:28Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.

Acts (Author Luke)

5:17Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation,

5:18And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison.

5:19But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said,

5:20Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.

5:21And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning, and taught. But the high priest came, and they that were with him, and called the council together, and all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought.

5:25Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people.

5:26Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence: for they feared the people, lest they should have been stoned.

5:27And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them,

5:28Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us.

5:34Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space;

5:38And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought:

5:39But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.

5:40And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.

5:41And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.
