THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

17:15He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.

29:26Many seek the ruler's favour; but every man's judgment cometh from the LORD.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

1:23Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

5:23Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

10:1Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed;

10:2To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!

Micah (Author Micah)

3:11The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.

7:3That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up.

Zephaniah (Author Zephaniah)

3:3Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow.

Matthew (Author Matthew)

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?

27:18For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.

27:19When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.

27:20But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

27:21The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

27:22Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.

27:23And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

27:24When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

27:25Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

27:26Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

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.

15:10For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.

Acts (Author Luke)

4:15But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves,

4:16Saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it.

4:17But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name.

4:18And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.

6:11Then they suborned men, which said, We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses, and against God.

6:12And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon him, and caught him, and brought him to the council,

6:13And set up false witnesses, which said, This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law:

6:14For we have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us.

24:26He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him.

24:27But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix' room: and Felix, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.
