THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Genesis (Author Moses)

22:12And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.

22:16And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:

22:17That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

22:18And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

32:11Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and the mother with the children.

42:21And they said one to another, We are verily guilty concerning our brother, in that we saw the anguish of his soul, when he besought us, and we would not hear; therefore is this distress come upon us.

Exodus (Author Moses)

9:27And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.

9:28Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.

10:7And Pharaoh's servants said unto him, How long shall this man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the LORD their God: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?

10:16Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, I have sinned against the LORD your God, and against you.

10:17Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once, and intreat the LORD your God, that he may take away from me this death only.

12:31And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and go, serve the LORD, as ye have said.

12:32Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone; and bless me also.

12:33And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We be all dead men.

10:7And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the children of Ammon.

10:8And that year they vexed and oppressed the children of Israel: eighteen years, all the children of Israel that were on the other side Jordan in the land of the Amorites, which is in Gilead.

10:10And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, saying, We have sinned against thee, both because we have forsaken our God, and also served Baalim.

13:1And, behold, there came a man of God out of Judah by the word of the LORD unto Bethel: and Jeroboam stood by the altar to burn incense.

13:2And he cried against the altar in the word of the LORD, and said, O altar, altar, thus saith the LORD; Behold, a child shall be born unto the house of David, Josiah by name; and upon thee shall he offer the priests of the high places that burn incense upon thee, and men's bones shall be burnt upon thee.

13:3And he gave a sign the same day, saying, This is the sign which the LORD hath spoken; Behold, the altar shall be rent, and the ashes that are upon it shall be poured out.

13:4And it came to pass, when king Jeroboam heard the saying of the man of God, which had cried against the altar in Bethel, that he put forth his hand from the altar, saying, Lay hold on him. And his hand, which he put forth against him, dried up, so that he could not pull it in again to him.

13:5The altar also was rent, and the ashes poured out from the altar, according to the sign which the man of God had given by the word of the LORD.

13:6And the king answered and said unto the man of God, Intreat now the face of the LORD thy God, and pray for me, that my hand may be restored me again. And the man of God besought the LORD, and the king's hand was restored him again, and became as it was before.

13:7And the king said unto the man of God, Come home with me, and refresh thyself, and I will give thee a reward.

13:8And the man of God said unto the king, If thou wilt give me half thine house, I will not go in with thee, neither will I eat bread nor drink water in this place:

13:9For so was it charged me by the word of the LORD, saying, Eat no bread, nor drink water, nor turn again by the same way that thou camest.

13:10So he went another way, and returned not by the way that he came to Bethel.

33:13And prayed unto him: and he was intreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD he was God.

Ezra (Author Ezra)

9:5And at the evening sacrifice I arose up from my heaviness; and having rent my garment and my mantle, I fell upon my knees, and spread out my hands unto the LORD my God,

9:6And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens.

9:7Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.

9:8And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage.

9:9For we were bondmen; yet our God hath not forsaken us in our bondage, but hath extended mercy unto us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to set up the house of our God, and to repair the desolations thereof, and to give us a wall in Judah and in Jerusalem.

9:10And now, O our God, what shall we say after this? for we have forsaken thy commandments,

9:11Which thou hast commanded by thy servants the prophets, saying, The land, unto which ye go to possess it, is an unclean land with the filthiness of the people of the lands, with their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their uncleanness.

9:12Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.

9:13And after all that is come upon us for our evil deeds, and for our great trespass, seeing that thou our God hast punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and hast given us such deliverance as this;

9:14Should we again break thy commandments, and join in affinity with the people of these abominations? wouldest not thou be angry with us till thou hadst consumed us, so that there should be no remnant nor escaping?

9:15O LORD God of Israel, thou art righteous: for we remain yet escaped, as it is this day: behold, we are before thee in our trespasses: for we cannot stand before thee because of this.

Nehemiah (Author Nehemiah or Ezra or both)

9:32Now therefore, our God, the great, the mighty, and the terrible God, who keepest covenant and mercy, let not all the trouble seem little before thee, that hath come upon us, on our kings, on our princes, and on our priests, and on our prophets, and on our fathers, and on all thy people, since the time of the kings of Assyria unto this day.

Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

34:31Surely it is meet to be said unto God, I have borne chastisement, I will not offend any more:

34:32That which I see not teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.

40:1Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said,

40:2Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.

40:3Then Job answered the LORD, and said,

40:4Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth.

40:5Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

18:4The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

18:5The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

18:6In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

66:10For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.

66:11Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.

66:12Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.

78:34When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and enquired early after God.

78:35And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.

ALEPH.

119:67Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.

119:71It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

26:16LORD, in trouble have they visited thee, they poured out a prayer when thy chastening was upon them.

Jeremiah (Author Jeremiah)

31:18I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself thus; Thou hast chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke: turn thou me, and I shall be turned; for thou art the LORD my God.

31:19Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh: I was ashamed, yea, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of my youth.

Jonah (Author Jonah)

2:1Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish's belly,

2:2And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.

2:3For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.

2:4Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple.

2:5The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.

2:6I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.

2:7When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.

2:8They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.

2:9But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.

2:10And the LORD spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.

Luke (Author Luke)

15:11And he said, A certain man had two sons:

15:12And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.

15:13And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.

15:14And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.

15:15And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

15:16And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.

15:17And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!

15:18I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,

15:19And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.

15:20And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

15:21And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.

15:22But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:

15:23And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:

15:24For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
