THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Exodus (Author Moses)

22:21Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

23:9Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart of a stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Leviticus (Author Moses)

19:10And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and stranger: I am the LORD your God.

19:33And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him.

19:34But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

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

Deuteronomy (Author Moses)

10:18He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment.

10:19Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

26:12When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and hast given it unto the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within thy gates, and be filled;

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

27:19Cursed be he that perverteth the judgment of the stranger, fatherless, and widow. And all the people shall say, Amen.

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

9:1Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:

9:2She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table.

9:3She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city,

9:4Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,

9:5Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled.

23:6Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:

23:7For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

23:8The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

58:6Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?

58:7Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

Matthew (Author Matthew)

22:2The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,

22:3And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.

22:4Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.

22:5But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:

22:6And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.

22:7But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.

22:8Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.

22:9Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.

22:10So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.

25:34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

25:35For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

25:36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

25:37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

25:38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

25:39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

25:40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

25:41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

25:42For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

25:43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

25:44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

25:45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

25:46And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Luke (Author Luke)

14:12Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.

14:13But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:

14:14And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.

Romans (Author Paul)

12:13Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.

16:1I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea:

16:2That ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many, and of myself also.

1 Timothy (Author Paul)

3:2A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

5:10Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.

Titus (Author Paul)

1:7For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;

1:8But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;

Hebrews (Author Paul)

13:2Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

1 Peter (Author Peter)

4:9Use hospitality one to another without grudging.

4:11If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

3 John (Author John)

1:5Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and to strangers;

1:6Which have borne witness of thy charity before the church: whom if thou bring forward on their journey after a godly sort, thou shalt do well:

1:7Because that for his name's sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles.

1:8We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellowhelpers to the truth.
