nkjv@Joshua:1:1 @ After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, it came to pass that the LORD spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' assistant, saying:

nkjv@Joshua:1:9 @ Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."

nkjv@Joshua:1:11 @ "Pass through the camp and command the people, saying, "Prepare provisions for yourselves, for within three days you will cross over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land which the LORD your God is giving you to possess."'

nkjv@Joshua:1:13 @ "Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, saying, "The LORD your God is giving you rest and is giving you this land.'

nkjv@Joshua:1:15 @ until the LORD has given your brethren rest, as He gave you, and they also have taken possession of the land which the LORD your God is giving them. Then you shall return to the land of your possession and enjoy it, which Moses the LORD's servant gave you on this side of the Jordan toward the sunrise."

nkjv@Joshua:1:17 @ Just as we heeded Moses in all things, so we will heed you. Only the LORD your God be with you, as He was with Moses.

nkjv@Joshua:2:9 @ and said to the men: "I know that the LORD has given you the land, that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of you.

nkjv@Joshua:2:10 @ For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were on the other side of the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed.

nkjv@Joshua:2:11 @ And as soon as we heard these things, our hearts melted; neither did there remain any more courage in anyone because of you, for the LORD your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath.

nkjv@Joshua:2:12 @ Now therefore, I beg you, swear to me by the LORD, since I have shown you kindness, that you also will show kindness to my father's house, and give me a true token,

nkjv@Joshua:2:14 @ So the men answered her, "Our lives for yours, if none of you tell this business of ours. And it shall be, when the LORD has given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with you."

nkjv@Joshua:2:24 @ And they said to Joshua, "Truly the LORD has delivered all the land into our hands, for indeed all the inhabitants of the country are fainthearted because of us."

nkjv@Joshua:3:3 @ and they commanded the people, saying, "When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests, the Levites, bearing it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it.

nkjv@Joshua:3:5 @ And Joshua said to the people, "Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you."

nkjv@Joshua:3:7 @ And the LORD said to Joshua, "This day I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with you.

nkjv@Joshua:3:9 @ So Joshua said to the children of Israel, "Come here, and hear the words of the LORD your God."

nkjv@Joshua:3:11 @ Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth is crossing over before you into the Jordan.

nkjv@Joshua:3:13 @ And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the waters of the Jordan shall be cut off, the waters that come down from upstream, and they shall stand as a heap."

nkjv@Joshua:3:17 @ Then the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan; and all Israel crossed over on dry ground, until all the people had crossed completely over the Jordan.

nkjv@Joshua:4:1 @ And it came to pass, when all the people had completely crossed over the Jordan, that the LORD spoke to Joshua, saying:

nkjv@Joshua:4:5 @ and Joshua said to them: "Cross over before the ark of the LORD your God into the midst of the Jordan, and each one of you take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel,

nkjv@Joshua:4:7 @ Then you shall answer them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it crossed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. And these stones shall be for a memorial to the children of Israel forever."

nkjv@Joshua:4:8 @ And the children of Israel did so, just as Joshua commanded, and took up twelve stones from the midst of the Jordan, as the LORD had spoken to Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, and carried them over with them to the place where they lodged, and laid them down there.

nkjv@Joshua:4:10 @ So the priests who bore the ark stood in the midst of the Jordan until everything was finished that the LORD had commanded Joshua to speak to the people, according to all that Moses had commanded Joshua; and the people hurried and crossed over.

nkjv@Joshua:4:11 @ Then it came to pass, when all the people had completely crossed over, that the ark of the LORD and the priests crossed over in the presence of the people.

nkjv@Joshua:4:13 @ About forty thousand prepared for war crossed over before the LORD for battle, to the plains of Jericho.

nkjv@Joshua:4:14 @ On that day the LORD exalted Joshua in the sight of all Israel; and they feared him, as they had feared Moses, all the days of his life.

nkjv@Joshua:4:15 @ Then the LORD spoke to Joshua, saying,

nkjv@Joshua:4:18 @ And it came to pass, when the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD had come from the midst of the Jordan, and the soles of the priests' feet touched the dry land, that the waters of the Jordan returned to their place and overflowed all its banks as before.

nkjv@Joshua:4:23 @ for the LORD your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before you until you had crossed over, as the LORD your God did to the Red Sea, which He dried up before us until we had crossed over,

nkjv@Joshua:4:24 @ that all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty, that you may fear the LORD your God forever."

nkjv@Joshua:5:1 @ So it was, when all the kings of the Amorites who were on the west side of the Jordan, and all the kings of the Canaanites who were by the sea, heard that the LORD had dried up the waters of the Jordan from before the children of Israel until we had crossed over, that their heart melted; and there was no spirit in them any longer because of the children of Israel.

nkjv@Joshua:5:2 @ At that time the LORD said to Joshua, "Make flint knives for yourself, and circumcise the sons of Israel again the second time."

nkjv@Joshua:5:6 @ For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people who were men of war, who came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they did not obey the voice of the LORD--to whom the LORD swore that He would not show them the land which the LORD had sworn to their fathers that He would give us, "a land flowing with milk and honey."

nkjv@Joshua:5:9 @ Then the LORD said to Joshua, "This day I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you." Therefore the name of the place is called Gilgal to this day.

nkjv@Joshua:5:14 @ So He said, "No, but as Commander of the army of the LORD I have now come." And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, "What does my Lord say to His servant?"

nkjv@Joshua:5:15 @ Then the Commander of the LORD's army said to Joshua, "Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is holy." And Joshua did so.

nkjv@Joshua:6:2 @ And the LORD said to Joshua: "See! I have given Jericho into your hand, its king, and the mighty men of valor.

nkjv@Joshua:6:6 @ Then Joshua the son of Nun called the priests and said to them, "Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD."

nkjv@Joshua:6:7 @ And he said to the people, "Proceed, and march around the city, and let him who is armed advance before the ark of the LORD."

nkjv@Joshua:6:8 @ So it was, when Joshua had spoken to the people, that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams' horns before the LORD advanced and blew the trumpets, and the ark of the covenant of the LORD followed them.

nkjv@Joshua:6:11 @ So he had the ark of the LORD circle the city, going around it once. Then they came into the camp and lodged in the camp.

nkjv@Joshua:6:12 @ And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the LORD.

nkjv@Joshua:6:13 @ Then seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD went on continually and blew with the trumpets. And the armed men went before them. But the rear guard came after the ark of the LORD, while the priests continued blowing the trumpets.

nkjv@Joshua:6:16 @ And the seventh time it happened, when the priests blew the trumpets, that Joshua said to the people: "Shout, for the LORD has given you the city!

nkjv@Joshua:6:17 @ Now the city shall be doomed by the LORD to destruction, it and all who are in it. Only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all who are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.

nkjv@Joshua:6:19 @ But all the silver and gold, and vessels of bronze and iron, are consecrated to the LORD; they shall come into the treasury of the LORD."

nkjv@Joshua:6:24 @ But they burned the city and all that was in it with fire. Only the silver and gold, and the vessels of bronze and iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the LORD.

nkjv@Joshua:6:26 @ Then Joshua charged them at that time, saying, "Cursed be the man before the LORD who rises up and builds this city Jericho; he shall lay its foundation with his firstborn, and with his youngest he shall set up its gates."

nkjv@Joshua:6:27 @ So the LORD was with Joshua, and his fame spread throughout all the country.

nkjv@Joshua:7:1 @ But the children of Israel committed a trespass regarding the accursed things, for Achan the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed things; so the anger of the LORD burned against the children of Israel.

nkjv@Joshua:7:6 @ Then Joshua tore his clothes, and fell to the earth on his face before the ark of the LORD until evening, he and the elders of Israel; and they put dust on their heads.

nkjv@Joshua:7:7 @ And Joshua said, "Alas, Lord GOD, why have You brought this people over the Jordan at all--to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us? Oh, that we had been content, and dwelt on the other side of the Jordan!

nkjv@Joshua:7:8 @ O Lord, what shall I say when Israel turns its back before its enemies?

nkjv@Joshua:7:10 @ So the LORD said to Joshua: "Get up! Why do you lie thus on your face?

nkjv@Joshua:7:13 @ Get up, sanctify the people, and say, "Sanctify yourselves for tomorrow, because thus says the LORD God of Israel: "There is an accursed thing in your midst, O Israel; you cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the accursed thing from among you."

nkjv@Joshua:7:14 @ In the morning therefore you shall be brought according to your tribes. And it shall be that the tribe which the LORD takes shall come according to families; and the family which the LORD takes shall come by households; and the household which the LORD takes shall come man by man.

nkjv@Joshua:7:15 @ Then it shall be that he who is taken with the accursed thing shall be burned with fire, he and all that he has, because he has transgressed the covenant of the LORD, and because he has done a disgraceful thing in Israel."'

nkjv@Joshua:7:19 @ Now Joshua said to Achan, "My son, I beg you, give glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession to Him, and tell me now what you have done; do not hide it from me."

nkjv@Joshua:7:20 @ And Achan answered Joshua and said, "Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and this is what I have done:

nkjv@Joshua:7:23 @ And they took them from the midst of the tent, brought them to Joshua and to all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the LORD.

nkjv@Joshua:7:25 @ And Joshua said, "Why have you troubled us? The LORD will trouble you this day." So all Israel stoned him with stones; and they burned them with fire after they had stoned them with stones.

nkjv@Joshua:7:26 @ Then they raised over him a great heap of stones, still there to this day. So the LORD turned from the fierceness of His anger. Therefore the name of that place has been called the Valley of Achor to this day.

nkjv@Joshua:8:1 @ Now the LORD said to Joshua: "Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed; take all the people of war with you, and arise, go up to Ai. See, I have given into your hand the king of Ai, his people, his city, and his land.

nkjv@Joshua:8:7 @ Then you shall rise from the ambush and seize the city, for the LORD your God will deliver it into your hand.

nkjv@Joshua:8:8 @ And it will be, when you have taken the city, that you shall set the city on fire. According to the commandment of the LORD you shall do. See, I have commanded you."

nkjv@Joshua:8:18 @ Then the LORD said to Joshua, "Stretch out the spear that is in your hand toward Ai, for I will give it into your hand." And Joshua stretched out the spear that was in his hand toward the city.

nkjv@Joshua:8:27 @ Only the livestock and the spoil of that city Israel took as booty for themselves, according to the word of the LORD which He had commanded Joshua.

nkjv@Joshua:8:30 @ Now Joshua built an altar to the LORD God of Israel in Mount Ebal,

nkjv@Joshua:8:31 @ as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded the children of Israel, as it is written in the Book of the Law of Moses: "an altar of whole stones over which no man has wielded an iron tool." And they offered on it burnt offerings to the LORD, and sacrificed peace offerings.

nkjv@Joshua:8:33 @ Then all Israel, with their elders and officers and judges, stood on either side of the ark before the priests, the Levites, who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD, the stranger as well as he who was born among them. Half of them were in front of Mount Gerizim and half of them in front of Mount Ebal, as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded before, that they should bless the people of Israel.

nkjv@Joshua:9:9 @ So they said to him: "From a very far country your servants have come, because of the name of the LORD your God; for we have heard of His fame, and all that He did in Egypt,

nkjv@Joshua:9:14 @ Then the men of Israel took some of their provisions; but they did not ask counsel of the LORD.

nkjv@Joshua:9:18 @ But the children of Israel did not attack them, because the rulers of the congregation had sworn to them by the LORD God of Israel. And all the congregation complained against the rulers.

nkjv@Joshua:9:19 @ Then all the rulers said to all the congregation, "We have sworn to them by the LORD God of Israel; now therefore, we may not touch them.

nkjv@Joshua:9:24 @ So they answered Joshua and said, "Because your servants were clearly told that the LORD your God commanded His servant Moses to give you all the land, and to destroy all the inhabitants of the land from before you; therefore we were very much afraid for our lives because of you, and have done this thing.

nkjv@Joshua:9:27 @ And that day Joshua made them woodcutters and water carriers for the congregation and for the altar of the LORD, in the place which He would choose, even to this day.

nkjv@Joshua:10:8 @ And the LORD said to Joshua, "Do not fear them, for I have delivered them into your hand; not a man of them shall stand before you."

nkjv@Joshua:10:10 @ So the LORD routed them before Israel, killed them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, chased them along the road that goes to Beth Horon, and struck them down as far as Azekah and Makkedah.

nkjv@Joshua:10:11 @ And it happened, as they fled before Israel and were on the descent of Beth Horon, that the LORD cast down large hailstones from heaven on them as far as Azekah, and they died. There were more who died from the hailstones than the children of Israel killed with the sword.

nkjv@Joshua:10:12 @ Then Joshua spoke to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel: "Sun, stand still over Gibeon; And Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon."

nkjv@Joshua:10:14 @ And there has been no day like that, before it or after it, that the LORD heeded the voice of a man; for the LORD fought for Israel.

nkjv@Joshua:10:19 @ And do not stay there yourselves, but pursue your enemies, and attack their rear guard. Do not allow them to enter their cities, for the LORD your God has delivered them into your hand."

nkjv@Joshua:10:25 @ Then Joshua said to them, "Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed; be strong and of good courage, for thus the LORD will do to all your enemies against whom you fight."

nkjv@Joshua:10:30 @ And the LORD also delivered it and its king into the hand of Israel; he struck it and all the people who were in it with the edge of the sword. He let none remain in it, but did to its king as he had done to the king of Jericho.

nkjv@Joshua:10:32 @ And the LORD delivered Lachish into the hand of Israel, who took it on the second day, and struck it and all the people who were in it with the edge of the sword, according to all that he had done to Libnah.

nkjv@Joshua:10:40 @ So Joshua conquered all the land: the mountain country and the South and the lowland and the wilderness slopes, and all their kings; he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the LORD God of Israel had commanded.

nkjv@Joshua:10:42 @ All these kings and their land Joshua took at one time, because the LORD God of Israel fought for Israel.

nkjv@Joshua:11:6 @ But the LORD said to Joshua, "Do not be afraid because of them, for tomorrow about this time I will deliver all of them slain before Israel. You shall hamstring their horses and burn their chariots with fire."

nkjv@Joshua:11:8 @ And the LORD delivered them into the hand of Israel, who defeated them and chased them to Greater Sidon, to the Brook Misrephoth, and to the Valley of Mizpah eastward; they attacked them until they left none of them remaining.

nkjv@Joshua:11:9 @ So Joshua did to them as the LORD had told him: he hamstrung their horses and burned their chariots with fire.

nkjv@Joshua:11:12 @ So all the cities of those kings, and all their kings, Joshua took and struck with the edge of the sword. He utterly destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded.

nkjv@Joshua:11:15 @ As the LORD had commanded Moses his servant, so Moses commanded Joshua, and so Joshua did. He left nothing undone of all that the LORD had commanded Moses.

nkjv@Joshua:11:20 @ For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that He might utterly destroy them, and that they might receive no mercy, but that He might destroy them, as the LORD had commanded Moses.

nkjv@Joshua:11:23 @ So Joshua took the whole land, according to all that the LORD had said to Moses; and Joshua gave it as an inheritance to Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. Then the land rested from war.

nkjv@Joshua:12:6 @ These Moses the servant of the LORD and the children of Israel had conquered; and Moses the servant of the LORD had given it as a possession to the Reubenites, the Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh.

nkjv@Joshua:13:1 @ Now Joshua was old, advanced in years. And the LORD said to him: "You are old, advanced in years, and there remains very much land yet to be possessed.

nkjv@Joshua:13:3 @ from Sihor, which is east of Egypt, as far as the border of Ekron northward (which is counted as Canaanite); the five lords of the Philistines--the Gazites, the Ashdodites, the Ashkelonites, the Gittites, and the Ekronites; also the Avites;

nkjv@Joshua:13:8 @ With the other half-tribe the Reubenites and the Gadites received their inheritance, which Moses had given them, beyond the Jordan eastward, as Moses the servant of the LORD had given them:

nkjv@Joshua:13:14 @ Only to the tribe of Levi he had given no inheritance; the sacrifices of the LORD God of Israel made by fire are their inheritance, as He said to them.

nkjv@Joshua:13:33 @ But to the tribe of Levi Moses had given no inheritance; the LORD God of Israel was their inheritance, as He had said to them.

nkjv@Joshua:14:2 @ Their inheritance was by lot, as the LORD had commanded by the hand of Moses, for the nine tribes and the half-tribe.

nkjv@Joshua:14:5 @ As the LORD had commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did; and they divided the land.

nkjv@Joshua:14:6 @ Then the children of Judah came to Joshua in Gilgal. And Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite said to him: "You know the word which the LORD said to Moses the man of God concerning you and me in Kadesh Barnea.

nkjv@Joshua:14:7 @ I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh Barnea to spy out the land, and I brought back word to him as it was in my heart.

nkjv@Joshua:14:8 @ Nevertheless my brethren who went up with me made the heart of the people melt, but I wholly followed the LORD my God.

nkjv@Joshua:14:9 @ So Moses swore on that day, saying, "Surely the land where your foot has trodden shall be your inheritance and your children's forever, because you have wholly followed the LORD my God.'

nkjv@Joshua:14:10 @ And now, behold, the LORD has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years, ever since the LORD spoke this word to Moses while Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, here I am this day, eighty-five years old.

nkjv@Joshua:14:12 @ Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the LORD spoke in that day; for you heard in that day how the Anakim were there, and that the cities were great and fortified. It may be that the LORD will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the LORD said."

nkjv@Joshua:14:14 @ Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite to this day, because he wholly followed the LORD God of Israel.

nkjv@Joshua:15:13 @ Now to Caleb the son of Jephunneh he gave a share among the children of Judah, according to the commandment of the LORD to Joshua, namely, Kirjath Arba, which is Hebron (Arba was the father of Anak).

nkjv@Joshua:17:4 @ And they came near before Eleazar the priest, before Joshua the son of Nun, and before the rulers, saying, "The LORD commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our brothers." Therefore, according to the commandment of the LORD, he gave them an inheritance among their father's brothers.

nkjv@Joshua:17:14 @ Then the children of Joseph spoke to Joshua, saying, "Why have you given us only one lot and one share to inherit, since we are a great people, inasmuch as the LORD has blessed us until now?"

nkjv@Joshua:18:3 @ Then Joshua said to the children of Israel: "How long will you neglect to go and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers has given you?

nkjv@Joshua:18:6 @ You shall therefore survey the land in seven parts and bring the survey here to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD our God.

nkjv@Joshua:18:7 @ But the Levites have no part among you, for the priesthood of the LORD is their inheritance. And Gad, Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance beyond the Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them."

nkjv@Joshua:18:8 @ Then the men arose to go away; and Joshua charged those who went to survey the land, saying, "Go, walk through the land, survey it, and come back to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD in Shiloh."

nkjv@Joshua:18:10 @ Then Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD, and there Joshua divided the land to the children of Israel according to their divisions.

nkjv@Joshua:19:50 @ According to the word of the LORD they gave him the city which he asked for, Timnath Serah in the mountains of Ephraim; and he built the city and dwelt in it.

nkjv@Joshua:19:51 @ These were the inheritances which Eleazar the priest, Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel divided as an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the LORD, at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. So they made an end of dividing the country.

nkjv@Joshua:20:1 @ The LORD also spoke to Joshua, saying,

nkjv@Joshua:21:2 @ And they spoke to them at Shiloh in the land of Canaan, saying, "The LORD commanded through Moses to give us cities to dwell in, with their common-lands for our livestock."

nkjv@Joshua:21:3 @ So the children of Israel gave to the Levites from their inheritance, at the commandment of the LORD, these cities and their common-lands:

nkjv@Joshua:21:8 @ And the children of Israel gave these cities with their common-lands by lot to the Levites, as the LORD had commanded by the hand of Moses.

nkjv@Joshua:21:43 @ So the LORD gave to Israel all the land of which He had sworn to give to their fathers, and they took possession of it and dwelt in it.

nkjv@Joshua:21:44 @ The LORD gave them rest all around, according to all that He had sworn to their fathers. And not a man of all their enemies stood against them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand.

nkjv@Joshua:21:45 @ Not a word failed of any good thing which the LORD had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass.

nkjv@Joshua:22:2 @ and said to them: "You have kept all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, and have obeyed my voice in all that I commanded you.

nkjv@Joshua:22:3 @ You have not left your brethren these many days, up to this day, but have kept the charge of the commandment of the LORD your God.

nkjv@Joshua:22:4 @ And now the LORD your God has given rest to your brethren, as He promised them; now therefore, return and go to your tents and to the land of your possession, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you on the other side of the Jordan.

nkjv@Joshua:22:5 @ But take careful heed to do the commandment and the law which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways, to keep His commandments, to hold fast to Him, and to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul."

nkjv@Joshua:22:9 @ So the children of Reuben, the children of Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh returned, and departed from the children of Israel at Shiloh, which is in the land of Canaan, to go to the country of Gilead, to the land of their possession, which they had obtained according to the word of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

nkjv@Joshua:22:16 @ "Thus says the whole congregation of the LORD: "What treachery is this that you have committed against the God of Israel, to turn away this day from following the LORD, in that you have built for yourselves an altar, that you might rebel this day against the LORD?

nkjv@Joshua:22:17 @ Is the iniquity of Peor not enough for us, from which we are not cleansed till this day, although there was a plague in the congregation of the LORD,

nkjv@Joshua:22:18 @ but that you must turn away this day from following the LORD? And it shall be, if you rebel today against the LORD, that tomorrow He will be angry with the whole congregation of Israel.

nkjv@Joshua:22:19 @ Nevertheless, if the land of your possession is unclean, then cross over to the land of the possession of the LORD, where the LORD's tabernacle stands, and take possession among us; but do not rebel against the LORD, nor rebel against us, by building yourselves an altar besides the altar of the LORD our God.

nkjv@Joshua:22:22 @ "The LORD God of gods, the LORD God of gods, He knows, and let Israel itself know--if it is in rebellion, or if in treachery against the LORD, do not save us this day.

nkjv@Joshua:22:23 @ If we have built ourselves an altar to turn from following the LORD, or if to offer on it burnt offerings or grain offerings, or if to offer peace offerings on it, let the LORD Himself require an account.

nkjv@Joshua:22:24 @ But in fact we have done it for fear, for a reason, saying, "In time to come your descendants may speak to our descendants, saying, "What have you to do with the LORD God of Israel?

nkjv@Joshua:22:25 @ For the LORD has made the Jordan a border between you and us, you children of Reuben and children of Gad. You have no part in the LORD." So your descendants would make our descendants cease fearing the LORD.'

nkjv@Joshua:24:27 @ And Joshua said to all the people, "Behold, this stone shall be a witness to us, for it has heard all the words of the LORD which He spoke to us. It shall therefore be a witness to you, lest you deny your God."

nkjv@Judges:1:1 @ Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass that the children of Israel asked the LORD, saying, "Who shall be first to go up for us against the Canaanites to fight against them?"

nkjv@Judges:1:2 @ And the LORD said, "Judah shall go up. Indeed I have delivered the land into his hand."

nkjv@Judges:1:4 @ Then Judah went up, and the LORD delivered the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hand; and they killed ten thousand men at Bezek.

nkjv@Judges:1:19 @ So the LORD was with Judah. And they drove out the mountaineers, but they could not drive out the inhabitants of the lowland, because they had chariots of iron.

nkjv@Judges:1:22 @ And the house of Joseph also went up against Bethel, and the LORD was with them.

nkjv@Judges:2:1 @ Then the Angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said: "I led you up from Egypt and brought you to the land of which I swore to your fathers; and I said, "I will never break My covenant with you.

nkjv@Judges:2:5 @ Then they called the name of that place Bochim; and they sacrificed there to the LORD.

nkjv@Judges:2:7 @ So the people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great works of the LORD which He had done for Israel.

nkjv@Judges:2:8 @ Now Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died when he was one hundred and ten years old.

nkjv@Judges:2:10 @ When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the LORD nor the work which He had done for Israel.

nkjv@Judges:2:11 @ Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served the Baals;

nkjv@Judges:2:12 @ and they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, who had brought them out of the land of Egypt; and they followed other gods from among the gods of the people who were all around them, and they bowed down to them; and they provoked the LORD to anger.

nkjv@Judges:2:13 @ They forsook the LORD and served Baal and the Ashtoreths.

nkjv@Judges:2:14 @ And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel. So He delivered them into the hands of plunderers who despoiled them; and He sold them into the hands of their enemies all around, so that they could no longer stand before their enemies.

nkjv@Judges:2:15 @ Wherever they went out, the hand of the LORD was against them for calamity, as the LORD had said, and as the LORD had sworn to them. And they were greatly distressed.

nkjv@Judges:2:16 @ Nevertheless, the LORD raised up judges who delivered them out of the hand of those who plundered them.

nkjv@Judges:2:17 @ Yet they would not listen to their judges, but they played the harlot with other gods, and bowed down to them. They turned quickly from the way in which their fathers walked, in obeying the commandments of the LORD; they did not do so.

nkjv@Judges:2:18 @ And when the LORD raised up judges for them, the LORD was with the judge and delivered them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge; for the LORD was moved to pity by their groaning because of those who oppressed them and harassed them.

nkjv@Judges:2:20 @ Then the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel; and He said, "Because this nation has transgressed My covenant which I commanded their fathers, and has not heeded My voice,

nkjv@Judges:2:22 @ so that through them I may test Israel, whether they will keep the ways of the LORD, to walk in them as their fathers kept them, or not."

nkjv@Judges:3:7 @ So the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD. They forgot the LORD their God, and served the Baals and Asherahs.

nkjv@Judges:3:8 @ Therefore the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and He sold them into the hand of Cushan-Rishathaim king of Mesopotamia; and the children of Israel served Cushan-Rishathaim eight years.

nkjv@Judges:3:9 @ When the children of Israel cried out to the LORD, the LORD raised up a deliverer for the children of Israel, who delivered them: Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother.

nkjv@Judges:3:10 @ The Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he judged Israel. He went out to war, and the LORD delivered Cushan-Rishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand; and his hand prevailed over Cushan-Rishathaim.

nkjv@Judges:3:12 @ And the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the LORD. So the LORD strengthened Eglon king of Moab against Israel, because they had done evil in the sight of the LORD.

nkjv@Judges:3:15 @ But when the children of Israel cried out to the LORD, the LORD raised up a deliverer for them: Ehud the son of Gera, the Benjamite, a left-handed man. By him the children of Israel sent tribute to Eglon king of Moab.

nkjv@Judges:3:28 @ Then he said to them, "Follow me, for the LORD has delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand." So they went down after him, seized the fords of the Jordan leading to Moab, and did not allow anyone to cross over.

nkjv@Judges:4:1 @ When Ehud was dead, the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the LORD.

nkjv@Judges:4:2 @ So the LORD sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor. The commander of his army was Sisera, who dwelt in Harosheth Hagoyim.

nkjv@Judges:4:3 @ And the children of Israel cried out to the LORD; for Jabin had nine hundred chariots of iron, and for twenty years he had harshly oppressed the children of Israel.

nkjv@Judges:4:6 @ Then she sent and called for Barak the son of Abinoam from Kedesh in Naphtali, and said to him, "Has not the LORD God of Israel commanded, "Go and deploy troops at Mount Tabor; take with you ten thousand men of the sons of Naphtali and of the sons of Zebulun;

nkjv@Judges:6:7 @ And it came to pass, when the children of Israel cried out to the LORD because of the Midianites,

nkjv@Judges:6:8 @ that the LORD sent a prophet to the children of Israel, who said to them, "Thus says the LORD God of Israel: "I brought you up from Egypt and brought you out of the house of bondage;

nkjv@Judges:6:12 @ And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him, and said to him, "The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valor!"

nkjv@Judges:6:13 @ Gideon said to Him, "O my lord, if the LORD is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles which our fathers told us about, saying, "Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt?' But now the LORD has forsaken us and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites."

nkjv@Judges:6:14 @ Then the LORD turned to him and said, "Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?"

nkjv@Judges:6:15 @ So he said to Him, "O my Lord, how can I save Israel? Indeed my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house."

nkjv@Judges:6:16 @ And the LORD said to him, "Surely I will be with you, and you shall defeat the Midianites as one man."

nkjv@Judges:6:21 @ Then the Angel of the LORD put out the end of the staff that was in His hand, and touched the meat and the unleavened bread; and fire rose out of the rock and consumed the meat and the unleavened bread. And the Angel of the LORD departed out of his sight.

nkjv@Judges:6:22 @ Now Gideon perceived that He was the Angel of the LORD. So Gideon said, "Alas, O Lord GOD! For I have seen the Angel of the LORD face to face."

nkjv@Judges:6:23 @ Then the LORD said to him, "Peace be with you; do not fear, you shall not die."

nkjv@Judges:6:24 @ So Gideon built an altar there to the LORD, and called it The-LORD-Is-Peace. To this day it is still in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.

nkjv@Judges:6:25 @ Now it came to pass the same night that the LORD said to him, "Take your father's young bull, the second bull of seven years old, and tear down the altar of Baal that your father has, and cut down the wooden image that is beside it;

nkjv@Judges:6:26 @ and build an altar to the LORD your God on top of this rock in the proper arrangement, and take the second bull and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the image which you shall cut down."

nkjv@Judges:6:27 @ So Gideon took ten men from among his servants and did as the LORD had said to him. But because he feared his father's household and the men of the city too much to do it by day, he did it by night.

nkjv@Judges:6:34 @ But the Spirit of the LORD came upon Gideon; then he blew the trumpet, and the Abiezrites gathered behind him.

nkjv@Judges:7:2 @ And the LORD said to Gideon, "The people who are with you are too many for Me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel claim glory for itself against Me, saying, "My own hand has saved me.'

nkjv@Judges:7:18 @ When I blow the trumpet, I and all who are with me, then you also blow the trumpets on every side of the whole camp, and say, "The sword of the LORD and of Gideon!"'

nkjv@Judges:7:20 @ Then the three companies blew the trumpets and broke the pitchers--they held the torches in their left hands and the trumpets in their right hands for blowing--and they cried, "The sword of the LORD and of Gideon!"

nkjv@Judges:7:22 @ When the three hundred blew the trumpets, the LORD set every man's sword against his companion throughout the whole camp; and the army fled to Beth Acacia, toward Zererah, as far as the border of Abel Meholah, by Tabbath.

nkjv@Judges:8:7 @ So Gideon said, "For this cause, when the LORD has delivered Zebah and Zalmunna into my hand, then I will tear your flesh with the thorns of the wilderness and with briers!"

nkjv@Judges:10:7 @ So 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 people of Ammon.

nkjv@Judges:10:10 @ And the children of Israel cried out to the LORD, saying, "We have sinned against You, because we have both forsaken our God and served the Baals!"

nkjv@Judges:15:14 @ When he came to Lehi, the Philistines came shouting against him. Then the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him; and the ropes that were on his arms became like flax that is burned with fire, and his bonds broke loose from his hands.

nkjv@Judges:16:18 @ When Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called for the lords of the Philistines, saying, "Come up once more, for he has told me all his heart." So the lords of the Philistines came up to her and brought the money in their hand.

nkjv@Judges:16:20 @ And she said, "The Philistines are upon you, Samson!" So he awoke from his sleep, and said, "I will go out as before, at other times, and shake myself free!" But he did not know that the LORD had departed from him.

nkjv@Judges:16:23 @ Now the lords of the Philistines gathered together to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god, and to rejoice. And they said: "Our god has delivered into our hands Samson our enemy!"

nkjv@Judges:16:27 @ Now the temple was full of men and women. All the lords of the Philistines were there--about three thousand men and women on the roof watching while Samson performed.

nkjv@Judges:16:28 @ Then Samson called to the LORD, saying, "O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray! Strengthen me, I pray, just this once, O God, that I may with one blow take vengeance on the Philistines for my two eyes!"

nkjv@Judges:16:30 @ Then Samson said, "Let me die with the Philistines!" And he pushed with all his might, and the temple fell on the lords and all the people who were in it. So the dead that he killed at his death were more than he had killed in his life.

nkjv@Judges:17:2 @ And he said to his mother, "The eleven hundred shekels of silver that were taken from you, and on which you put a curse, even saying it in my ears--here is the silver with me; I took it." And his mother said, "May you be blessed by the LORD, my son!"

nkjv@Judges:17:3 @ So when he had returned the eleven hundred shekels of silver to his mother, his mother said, "I had wholly dedicated the silver from my hand to the LORD for my son, to make a carved image and a molded image; now therefore, I will return it to you."

nkjv@Judges:20:18 @ Then the children of Israel arose and went up to the house of God to inquire of God. They said, "Which of us shall go up first to battle against the children of Benjamin?" The LORD said, "Judah first!"

nkjv@Judges:20:23 @ Then the children of Israel went up and wept before the LORD until evening, and asked counsel of the LORD, saying, "Shall I again draw near for battle against the children of my brother Benjamin?" And the LORD said, "Go up against him."

nkjv@Judges:20:26 @ Then all the children of Israel, that is, all the people, went up and came to the house of God and wept. They sat there before the LORD and fasted that day until evening; and they offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD.

nkjv@Judges:20:27 @ So the children of Israel inquired of the LORD (the ark of the covenant of God was there in those days,

nkjv@Judges:20:28 @ and Phinehas the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, stood before it in those days), saying, "Shall I yet again go out to battle against the children of my brother Benjamin, or shall I cease?" And the LORD said, "Go up, for tomorrow I will deliver them into your hand."

nkjv@Judges:20:35 @ The LORD defeated Benjamin before Israel. And the children of Israel destroyed that day twenty-five thousand one hundred Benjamites; all these drew the sword.

nkjv@Judges:21:3 @ and said, "O LORD God of Israel, why has this come to pass in Israel, that today there should be one tribe missing in Israel?"

nkjv@Judges:21:5 @ The children of Israel said, "Who is there among all the tribes of Israel who did not come up with the assembly to the LORD?" For they had made a great oath concerning anyone who had not come up to the LORD at Mizpah, saying, "He shall surely be put to death."

nkjv@Judges:21:7 @ What shall we do for wives for those who remain, seeing we have sworn by the LORD that we will not give them our daughters as wives?"

nkjv@Judges:21:8 @ And they said, "What one is there from the tribes of Israel who did not come up to Mizpah to the LORD?" And, in fact, no one had come to the camp from Jabesh Gilead to the assembly.

nkjv@Judges:21:15 @ And the people grieved for Benjamin, because the LORD had made a void in the tribes of Israel.

nkjv@Judges:21:19 @ Then they said, "In fact, there is a yearly feast of the LORD in Shiloh, which is north of Bethel, on the east side of the highway that goes up from Bethel to Shechem, and south of Lebonah."

nkjv@Ruth:1:13 @ would you wait for them till they were grown? Would you restrain yourselves from having husbands? No, my daughters; for it grieves me very much for your sakes that the hand of the LORD has gone out against me!"

nkjv@Ruth:1:17 @ Where you die, I will die, And there will I be buried. The LORD do so to me, and more also, If anything but death parts you and me."

nkjv@Ruth:1:21 @ I went out full, and the LORD has brought me home again empty. Why do you call me Naomi, since the LORD has testified against me, and the Almighty has afflicted me?"

nkjv@Ruth:2:4 @ Now behold, Boaz came from Bethlehem, and said to the reapers, "The LORD be with you!" And they answered him, "The LORD bless you!"

nkjv@Ruth:2:12 @ The LORD repay your work, and a full reward be given you by the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge."

nkjv@Ruth:2:13 @ Then she said, "Let me find favor in your sight, my lord; for you have comforted me, and have spoken kindly to your maidservant, though I am not like one of your maidservants."

nkjv@Ruth:2:20 @ Then Naomi said to her daughter-in-law, "Blessed be he of the LORD, who has not forsaken His kindness to the living and the dead!" And Naomi said to her, "This man is a relation of ours, one of our close relatives."

nkjv@Ruth:3:10 @ Then he said, "Blessed are you of the LORD, my daughter! For you have shown more kindness at the end than at the beginning, in that you did not go after young men, whether poor or rich.

nkjv@Ruth:3:13 @ Stay this night, and in the morning it shall be that if he will perform the duty of a close relative for you--good; let him do it. But if he does not want to perform the duty for you, then I will perform the duty for you, as the LORD lives! Lie down until morning."

nkjv@Ruth:4:11 @ And all the people who were at the gate, and the elders, said, "We are witnesses. The LORD make the woman who is coming to your house like Rachel and Leah, the two who built the house of Israel; and may you prosper in Ephrathah and be famous in Bethlehem.

nkjv@Ruth:4:12 @ May your house be like the house of Perez, whom Tamar bore to Judah, because of the offspring which the LORD will give you from this young woman."

nkjv@Ruth:4:13 @ So Boaz took Ruth and she became his wife; and when he went in to her, the LORD gave her conception, and she bore a son.

nkjv@1Samuel:1:6 @ And her rival also provoked her severely, to make her miserable, because the LORD had closed her womb.

nkjv@1Samuel:1:7 @ So it was, year by year, when she went up to the house of the LORD, that she provoked her; therefore she wept and did not eat.

nkjv@1Samuel:1:9 @ So Hannah arose after they had finished eating and drinking in Shiloh. Now Eli the priest was sitting on the seat by the doorpost of the tabernacle of the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:1:10 @ And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the LORD and wept in anguish.

nkjv@1Samuel:1:11 @ Then she made a vow and said, "O LORD of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the LORD all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head."

nkjv@1Samuel:1:12 @ And it happened, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli watched her mouth.

nkjv@1Samuel:1:15 @ But Hannah answered and said, "No, my lord, I am a woman of sorrowful spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor intoxicating drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:1:19 @ Then they rose early in the morning and worshiped before the LORD, and returned and came to their house at Ramah. And Elkanah knew Hannah his wife, and the LORD remembered her.

nkjv@1Samuel:1:20 @ So it came to pass in the process of time that Hannah conceived and bore a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, "Because I have asked for him from the LORD."

nkjv@1Samuel:1:21 @ Now the man Elkanah and all his house went up to offer to the LORD the yearly sacrifice and his vow.

nkjv@1Samuel:1:22 @ But Hannah did not go up, for she said to her husband, "Not until the child is weaned; then I will take him, that he may appear before the LORD and remain there forever."

nkjv@1Samuel:1:23 @ So Elkanah her husband said to her, "Do what seems best to you; wait until you have weaned him. Only let the LORD establish His word." Then the woman stayed and nursed her son until she had weaned him.

nkjv@1Samuel:1:24 @ Now when she had weaned him, she took him up with her, with three bulls, one ephah of flour, and a skin of wine, and brought him to the house of the LORD in Shiloh. And the child was young.

nkjv@1Samuel:1:26 @ And she said, "O my lord! As your soul lives, my lord, I am the woman who stood by you here, praying to the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:1:27 @ For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition which I asked of Him.

nkjv@1Samuel:1:28 @ Therefore I also have lent him to the LORD; as long as he lives he shall be lent to the LORD." So they worshiped the LORD there.

nkjv@1Samuel:2:1 @ And Hannah prayed and said: "My heart rejoices in the LORD; My horn is exalted in the LORD. I smile at my enemies, Because I rejoice in Your salvation.

nkjv@1Samuel:2:11 @ Then Elkanah went to his house at Ramah. But the child ministered to the LORD before Eli the priest.

nkjv@1Samuel:2:12 @ Now the sons of Eli were corrupt; they did not know the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:2:17 @ Therefore the sin of the young men was very great before the LORD, for men abhorred the offering of the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:2:18 @ But Samuel ministered before the LORD, even as a child, wearing a linen ephod.

nkjv@1Samuel:2:20 @ And Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife, and say, "The LORD give you descendants from this woman for the loan that was given to the LORD." Then they would go to their own home.

nkjv@1Samuel:2:21 @ And the LORD visited Hannah, so that she conceived and bore three sons and two daughters. Meanwhile the child Samuel grew before the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:2:24 @ No, my sons! For it is not a good report that I hear. You make the LORD's people transgress.

nkjv@1Samuel:2:25 @ If one man sins against another, God will judge him. But if a man sins against the LORD, who will intercede for him?" Nevertheless they did not heed the voice of their father, because the LORD desired to kill them.

nkjv@1Samuel:2:26 @ And the child Samuel grew in stature, and in favor both with the LORD and men.

nkjv@1Samuel:2:27 @ Then a man of God came to Eli and said to him, "Thus says the LORD: "Did I not clearly reveal Myself to the house of your father when they were in Egypt in Pharaoh's house?

nkjv@1Samuel:2:30 @ Therefore the LORD God of Israel says: "I said indeed that your house and the house of your father would walk before Me forever.' But now the LORD says: "Far be it from Me; for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me shall be lightly esteemed.

nkjv@1Samuel:3:1 @ Now the boy Samuel ministered to the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was rare in those days; there was no widespread revelation.

nkjv@1Samuel:3:3 @ and before the lamp of God went out in the tabernacle of the LORD where the ark of God was, and while Samuel was lying down,

nkjv@1Samuel:3:4 @ that the LORD called Samuel. And he answered, "Here I am!"

nkjv@1Samuel:3:6 @ Then the LORD called yet again, "Samuel!" So Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, "Here I am, for you called me." He answered, "I did not call, my son; lie down again."

nkjv@1Samuel:3:7 @ (Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, nor was the word of the LORD yet revealed to him.)

nkjv@1Samuel:3:8 @ And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. So he arose and went to Eli, and said, "Here I am, for you did call me." Then Eli perceived that the LORD had called the boy.

nkjv@1Samuel:3:9 @ Therefore Eli said to Samuel, "Go, lie down; and it shall be, if He calls you, that you must say, "Speak, LORD, for Your servant hears."' So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

nkjv@1Samuel:3:10 @ Now the LORD came and stood and called as at other times, "Samuel! Samuel!" And Samuel answered, "Speak, for Your servant hears."

nkjv@1Samuel:3:11 @ Then the LORD said to Samuel: "Behold, I will do something in Israel at which both ears of everyone who hears it will tingle.

nkjv@1Samuel:3:15 @ So Samuel lay down until morning, and opened the doors of the house of the LORD. And Samuel was afraid to tell Eli the vision.

nkjv@1Samuel:3:17 @ And he said, "What is the word that the LORD spoke to you? Please do not hide it from me. God do so to you, and more also, if you hide anything from me of all the things that He said to you."

nkjv@1Samuel:3:18 @ Then Samuel told him everything, and hid nothing from him. And he said, "It is the LORD. Let Him do what seems good to Him."

nkjv@1Samuel:3:19 @ So Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground.

nkjv@1Samuel:3:20 @ And all Israel from Dan to Beersheba knew that Samuel had been established as a prophet of the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:3:21 @ Then the LORD appeared again in Shiloh. For the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:4:3 @ And when the people had come into the camp, the elders of Israel said, "Why has the LORD defeated us today before the Philistines? Let us bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD from Shiloh to us, that when it comes among us it may save us from the hand of our enemies."

nkjv@1Samuel:4:4 @ So the people sent to Shiloh, that they might bring from there the ark of the covenant of the LORD of hosts, who dwells between the cherubim. And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were there with the ark of the covenant of God.

nkjv@1Samuel:4:5 @ And when the ark of the covenant of the LORD came into the camp, all Israel shouted so loudly that the earth shook.

nkjv@1Samuel:4:6 @ Now when the Philistines heard the noise of the shout, they said, "What does the sound of this great shout in the camp of the Hebrews mean?" Then they understood that the ark of the LORD had come into the camp.

nkjv@1Samuel:5:3 @ And when the people of Ashdod arose early in the morning, there was Dagon, fallen on its face to the earth before the ark of the LORD. So they took Dagon and set it in its place again.

nkjv@1Samuel:5:4 @ And when they arose early the next morning, there was Dagon, fallen on its face to the ground before the ark of the LORD. The head of Dagon and both the palms of its hands were broken off on the threshold; only Dagon's torso was left of it.

nkjv@1Samuel:5:6 @ But the hand of the LORD was heavy on the people of Ashdod, and He ravaged them and struck them with tumors, both Ashdod and its territory.

nkjv@1Samuel:5:8 @ Therefore they sent and gathered to themselves all the lords of the Philistines, and said, "What shall we do with the ark of the God of Israel?" And they answered, "Let the ark of the God of Israel be carried away to Gath." So they carried the ark of the God of Israel away.

nkjv@1Samuel:5:9 @ So it was, after they had carried it away, that the hand of the LORD was against the city with a very great destruction; and He struck the men of the city, both small and great, and tumors broke out on them.

nkjv@1Samuel:5:11 @ So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, "Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go back to its own place, so that it does not kill us and our people."

nkjv@1Samuel:6:1 @ Now the ark of the LORD was in the country of the Philistines seven months.

nkjv@1Samuel:6:2 @ And the Philistines called for the priests and the diviners, saying, "What shall we do with the ark of the LORD? Tell us how we should send it to its place."

nkjv@1Samuel:6:12 @ Then the cows headed straight for the road to Beth Shemesh, and went along the highway, lowing as they went, and did not turn aside to the right hand or the left. And the lords of the Philistines went after them to the border of Beth Shemesh.

nkjv@1Samuel:6:14 @ Then the cart came into the field of Joshua of Beth Shemesh, and stood there; a large stone was there. So they split the wood of the cart and offered the cows as a burnt offering to the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:6:15 @ The Levites took down the ark of the LORD and the chest that was with it, in which were the articles of gold, and put them on the large stone. Then the men of Beth Shemesh offered burnt offerings and made sacrifices the same day to the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:6:16 @ So when the five lords of the Philistines had seen it, they returned to Ekron the same day.

nkjv@1Samuel:6:17 @ These are the golden tumors which the Philistines returned as a trespass offering to the LORD: one for Ashdod, one for Gaza, one for Ashkelon, one for Gath, one for Ekron;

nkjv@1Samuel:6:19 @ Then He struck the men of Beth Shemesh, because they had looked into the ark of the LORD. He struck fifty thousand and seventy men of the people, and the people lamented because the LORD had struck the people with a great slaughter.

nkjv@1Samuel:6:20 @ And the men of Beth Shemesh said, "Who is able to stand before this holy LORD God? And to whom shall it go up from us?"

nkjv@1Samuel:6:21 @ So they sent messengers to the inhabitants of Kirjath Jearim, saying, "The Philistines have brought back the ark of the LORD; come down and take it up with you."

nkjv@1Samuel:7:1 @ Then the men of Kirjath Jearim came and took the ark of the LORD, and brought it into the house of Abinadab on the hill, and consecrated Eleazar his son to keep the ark of the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:7:2 @ So it was that the ark remained in Kirjath Jearim a long time; it was there twenty years. And all the house of Israel lamented after the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:7:3 @ Then Samuel spoke to all the house of Israel, saying, "If you return to the LORD with all your hearts, then put away the foreign gods and the Ashtoreths from among you, and prepare your hearts for the LORD, and serve Him only; and He will deliver you from the hand of the Philistines."

nkjv@1Samuel:7:4 @ So the children of Israel put away the Baals and the Ashtoreths, and served the LORD only.

nkjv@1Samuel:7:5 @ And Samuel said, "Gather all Israel to Mizpah, and I will pray to the LORD for you."

nkjv@1Samuel:7:6 @ So they gathered together at Mizpah, drew water, and poured it out before the LORD. And they fasted that day, and said there, "We have sinned against the LORD." And Samuel judged the children of Israel at Mizpah.

nkjv@1Samuel:7:7 @ Now when the Philistines heard that the children of Israel had gathered together at Mizpah, the lords of the Philistines went up against Israel. And when the children of Israel heard of it, they were afraid of the Philistines.

nkjv@1Samuel:7:8 @ So the children of Israel said to Samuel, "Do not cease to cry out to the LORD our God for us, that He may save us from the hand of the Philistines."

nkjv@1Samuel:7:9 @ And Samuel took a suckling lamb and offered it as a whole burnt offering to the LORD. Then Samuel cried out to the LORD for Israel, and the LORD answered him.

nkjv@1Samuel:7:10 @ Now as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel. But the LORD thundered with a loud thunder upon the Philistines that day, and so confused them that they were overcome before Israel.

nkjv@1Samuel:7:12 @ Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen, and called its name Ebenezer, saying, "Thus far the LORD has helped us."

nkjv@1Samuel:7:13 @ So the Philistines were subdued, and they did not come anymore into the territory of Israel. And the hand of the LORD was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel.

nkjv@1Samuel:7:17 @ But he always returned to Ramah, for his home was there. There he judged Israel, and there he built an altar to the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:8:6 @ But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, "Give us a king to judge us." So Samuel prayed to the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:8:7 @ And the LORD said to Samuel, "Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.

nkjv@1Samuel:8:18 @ And you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, and the LORD will not hear you in that day."

nkjv@1Samuel:8:21 @ And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he repeated them in the hearing of the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:10:25 @ Then Samuel explained to the people the behavior of royalty, and wrote it in a book and laid it up before the LORD. And Samuel sent all the people away, every man to his house.

nkjv@1Samuel:11:7 @ So he took a yoke of oxen and cut them in pieces, and sent them throughout all the territory of Israel by the hands of messengers, saying, "Whoever does not go out with Saul and Samuel to battle, so it shall be done to his oxen."

nkjv@1Samuel:12:11 @ And the LORD sent Jerubbaal, Bedan, Jephthah, and Samuel, and delivered you out of the hand of your enemies on every side; and you dwelt in safety.

nkjv@1Samuel:12:12 @ And when you saw that Nahash king of the Ammonites came against you, you said to me, "No, but a king shall reign over us,' when the LORD your God was your king.

nkjv@1Samuel:12:13 @ "Now therefore, here is the king whom you have chosen and whom you have desired. And take note, the LORD has set a king over you.

nkjv@1Samuel:12:14 @ If you fear the LORD and serve Him and obey His voice, and do not rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then both you and the king who reigns over you will continue following the LORD your God.

nkjv@1Samuel:12:15 @ However, if you do not obey the voice of the LORD, but rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then the hand of the LORD will be against you, as it was against your fathers.

nkjv@1Samuel:12:16 @ "Now therefore, stand and see this great thing which the LORD will do before your eyes:

nkjv@1Samuel:12:17 @ Is today not the wheat harvest? I will call to the LORD, and He will send thunder and rain, that you may perceive and see that your wickedness is great, which you have done in the sight of the LORD, in asking a king for yourselves."

nkjv@1Samuel:12:18 @ So Samuel called to the LORD, and the LORD sent thunder and rain that day; and all the people greatly feared the LORD and Samuel.

nkjv@1Samuel:12:19 @ And all the people said to Samuel, "Pray for your servants to the LORD your God, that we may not die; for we have added to all our sins the evil of asking a king for ourselves."

nkjv@1Samuel:12:20 @ Then Samuel said to the people, "Do not fear. You have done all this wickedness; yet do not turn aside from following the LORD, but serve the LORD with all your heart.

nkjv@1Samuel:12:22 @ For the LORD will not forsake His people, for His great name's sake, because it has pleased the LORD to make you His people.

nkjv@1Samuel:12:23 @ Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you; but I will teach you the good and the right way.

nkjv@1Samuel:12:24 @ Only fear the LORD, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you.

nkjv@1Samuel:13:12 @ then I said, "The Philistines will now come down on me at Gilgal, and I have not made supplication to the LORD.' Therefore I felt compelled, and offered a burnt offering."

nkjv@1Samuel:13:13 @ And Samuel said to Saul, "You have done foolishly. You have not kept the commandment of the LORD your God, which He commanded you. For now the LORD would have established your kingdom over Israel forever.

nkjv@1Samuel:13:14 @ But now your kingdom shall not continue. The LORD has sought for Himself a man after His own heart, and the LORD has commanded him to be commander over His people, because you have not kept what the LORD commanded you."

nkjv@1Samuel:14:3 @ Ahijah the son of Ahitub, Ichabod's brother, the son of Phinehas, the son of Eli, the LORD's priest in Shiloh, was wearing an ephod. But the people did not know that Jonathan had gone.

nkjv@1Samuel:14:6 @ Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, "Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the LORD will work for us. For nothing restrains the LORD from saving by many or by few."

nkjv@1Samuel:14:10 @ But if they say thus, "Come up to us,' then we will go up. For the LORD has delivered them into our hand, and this will be a sign to us."

nkjv@1Samuel:14:12 @ Then the men of the garrison called to Jonathan and his armorbearer, and said, "Come up to us, and we will show you something." Jonathan said to his armorbearer, "Come up after me, for the LORD has delivered them into the hand of Israel."

nkjv@1Samuel:14:23 @ So the LORD saved Israel that day, and the battle shifted to Beth Aven.

nkjv@1Samuel:14:33 @ Then they told Saul, saying, "Look, the people are sinning against the LORD by eating with the blood!" So he said, "You have dealt treacherously; roll a large stone to me this day."

nkjv@1Samuel:14:34 @ Then Saul said, "Disperse yourselves among the people, and say to them, "Bring me here every man's ox and every man's sheep, slaughter them here, and eat; and do not sin against the LORD by eating with the blood."' So every one of the people brought his ox with him that night, and slaughtered it there.

nkjv@1Samuel:14:35 @ Then Saul built an altar to the LORD. This was the first altar that he built to the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:14:39 @ For as the LORD lives, who saves Israel, though it be in Jonathan my son, he shall surely die." But not a man among all the people answered him.

nkjv@1Samuel:14:41 @ Therefore Saul said to the LORD God of Israel, "Give a perfect lot." So Saul and Jonathan were taken, but the people escaped.

nkjv@1Samuel:14:45 @ But the people said to Saul, "Shall Jonathan die, who has accomplished this great deliverance in Israel? Certainly not! As the LORD lives, not one hair of his head shall fall to the ground, for he has worked with God this day." So the people rescued Jonathan, and he did not die.

nkjv@1Samuel:15:1 @ Samuel also said to Saul, "The LORD sent me to anoint you king over His people, over Israel. Now therefore, heed the voice of the words of the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:15:2 @ Thus says the LORD of hosts: "I will punish Amalek for what he did to Israel, how he ambushed him on the way when he came up from Egypt.

nkjv@1Samuel:15:11 @ "I greatly regret that I have set up Saul as king, for he has turned back from following Me, and has not performed My commandments." And it grieved Samuel, and he cried out to the LORD all night.

nkjv@1Samuel:15:13 @ Then Samuel went to Saul, and Saul said to him, "Blessed are you of the LORD! I have performed the commandment of the LORD."

nkjv@1Samuel:15:15 @ And Saul said, "They have brought them from the Amalekites; for the people spared the best of the sheep and the oxen, to sacrifice to the LORD your God; and the rest we have utterly destroyed."

nkjv@1Samuel:15:16 @ Then Samuel said to Saul, "Be quiet! And I will tell you what the LORD said to me last night." And he said to him, "Speak on."

nkjv@1Samuel:15:17 @ So Samuel said, "When you were little in your own eyes, were you not head of the tribes of Israel? And did not the LORD anoint you king over Israel?

nkjv@1Samuel:15:18 @ Now the LORD sent you on a mission, and said, "Go, and utterly destroy the sinners, the Amalekites, and fight against them until they are consumed.'

nkjv@1Samuel:15:19 @ Why then did you not obey the voice of the LORD? Why did you swoop down on the spoil, and do evil in the sight of the LORD?"

nkjv@1Samuel:15:20 @ And Saul said to Samuel, "But I have obeyed the voice of the LORD, and gone on the mission on which the LORD sent me, and brought back Agag king of Amalek; I have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.

nkjv@1Samuel:15:21 @ But the people took of the plunder, sheep and oxen, the best of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice to the LORD your God in Gilgal."

nkjv@1Samuel:15:22 @ So Samuel said: "Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, As in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams.

nkjv@1Samuel:15:23 @ For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, He also has rejected you from being king."

nkjv@1Samuel:15:24 @ Then Saul said to Samuel, "I have sinned, for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD and your words, because I feared the people and obeyed their voice.

nkjv@1Samuel:15:25 @ Now therefore, please pardon my sin, and return with me, that I may worship the LORD."

nkjv@1Samuel:15:26 @ But Samuel said to Saul, "I will not return with you, for you have rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD has rejected you from being king over Israel."

nkjv@1Samuel:15:28 @ So Samuel said to him, "The LORD has torn the kingdom of Israel from you today, and has given it to a neighbor of yours, who is better than you.

nkjv@1Samuel:15:30 @ Then he said, "I have sinned; yet honor me now, please, before the elders of my people and before Israel, and return with me, that I may worship the LORD your God."

nkjv@1Samuel:15:31 @ So Samuel turned back after Saul, and Saul worshiped the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:15:33 @ But Samuel said, "As your sword has made women childless, so shall your mother be childless among women." And Samuel hacked Agag in pieces before the LORD in Gilgal.

nkjv@1Samuel:15:35 @ And Samuel went no more to see Saul until the day of his death. Nevertheless Samuel mourned for Saul, and the LORD regretted that He had made Saul king over Israel.

nkjv@1Samuel:16:1 @ Now the LORD said to Samuel, "How long will you mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? Fill your horn with oil, and go; I am sending you to Jesse the Bethlehemite. For I have provided Myself a king among his sons."

nkjv@1Samuel:16:2 @ And Samuel said, "How can I go? If Saul hears it, he will kill me." But the LORD said, "Take a heifer with you, and say, "I have come to sacrifice to the LORD.'

nkjv@1Samuel:16:5 @ And he said, "Peaceably; I have come to sacrifice to the LORD. Sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice." Then he consecrated Jesse and his sons, and invited them to the sacrifice.

nkjv@1Samuel:16:6 @ So it was, when they came, that he looked at Eliab and said, "Surely the LORD's anointed is before Him!"

nkjv@1Samuel:16:7 @ But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."

nkjv@1Samuel:16:8 @ So Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel. And he said, "Neither has the LORD chosen this one."

nkjv@1Samuel:16:9 @ Then Jesse made Shammah pass by. And he said, "Neither has the LORD chosen this one."

nkjv@1Samuel:16:10 @ Thus Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel. And Samuel said to Jesse, "The LORD has not chosen these."

nkjv@1Samuel:16:12 @ So he sent and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, with bright eyes, and good-looking. And the LORD said, "Arise, anoint him; for this is the one!"

nkjv@1Samuel:16:13 @ Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel arose and went to Ramah.

nkjv@1Samuel:16:14 @ But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and a distressing spirit from the LORD troubled him.

nkjv@1Samuel:16:18 @ Then one of the servants answered and said, "Look, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, who is skillful in playing, a mighty man of valor, a man of war, prudent in speech, and a handsome person; and the LORD is with him."

nkjv@1Samuel:17:37 @ Moreover David said, "The LORD, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine." And Saul said to David, "Go, and the LORD be with you!"

nkjv@1Samuel:17:47 @ Then all this assembly shall know that the LORD does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the LORD's, and He will give you into our hands."

nkjv@1Samuel:18:12 @ Now Saul was afraid of David, because the LORD was with him, but had departed from Saul.

nkjv@1Samuel:18:14 @ And David behaved wisely in all his ways, and the LORD was with him.

nkjv@1Samuel:18:17 @ Then Saul said to David, "Here is my older daughter Merab; I will give her to you as a wife. Only be valiant for me, and fight the LORD's battles." For Saul thought, "Let my hand not be against him, but let the hand of the Philistines be against him."

nkjv@1Samuel:18:28 @ Thus Saul saw and knew that the LORD was with David, and that Michal, Saul's daughter, loved him;

nkjv@1Samuel:19:5 @ For he took his life in his hands and killed the Philistine, and the LORD brought about a great deliverance for all Israel. You saw it and rejoiced. Why then will you sin against innocent blood, to kill David without a cause?"

nkjv@1Samuel:19:6 @ So Saul heeded the voice of Jonathan, and Saul swore, "As the LORD lives, he shall not be killed."

nkjv@1Samuel:19:9 @ Now the distressing spirit from the LORD came upon Saul as he sat in his house with his spear in his hand. And David was playing music with his hand.

nkjv@1Samuel:20:3 @ Then David took an oath again, and said, "Your father certainly knows that I have found favor in your eyes, and he has said, "Do not let Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved.' But truly, as the LORD lives and as your soul lives, there is but a step between me and death."

nkjv@1Samuel:20:8 @ Therefore you shall deal kindly with your servant, for you have brought your servant into a covenant of the LORD with you. Nevertheless, if there is iniquity in me, kill me yourself, for why should you bring me to your father?"

nkjv@1Samuel:20:12 @ Then Jonathan said to David: "The LORD God of Israel is witness! When I have sounded out my father sometime tomorrow, or the third day, and indeed there is good toward David, and I do not send to you and tell you,

nkjv@1Samuel:20:16 @ So Jonathan made a covenant with the house of David, saying, "Let the LORD require it at the hand of David's enemies."

nkjv@1Samuel:20:21 @ and there I will send a lad, saying, "Go, find the arrows.' If I expressly say to the lad, "Look, the arrows are on this side of you; get them and come'--then, as the LORD lives, there is safety for you and no harm.

nkjv@1Samuel:20:23 @ And as for the matter which you and I have spoken of, indeed the LORD be between you and me forever."

nkjv@1Samuel:20:42 @ Then Jonathan said to David, "Go in peace, since we have both sworn in the name of the LORD, saying, "May the LORD be between you and me, and between your descendants and my descendants, forever."' So he arose and departed, and Jonathan went into the city.

nkjv@1Samuel:21:6 @ So the priest gave him holy bread; for there was no bread there but the showbread which had been taken from before the LORD, in order to put hot bread in its place on the day when it was taken away.

nkjv@1Samuel:21:7 @ Now a certain man of the servants of Saul was there that day, detained before the LORD. And his name was Doeg, an Edomite, the chief of the herdsmen who belonged to Saul.

nkjv@1Samuel:22:10 @ And he inquired of the LORD for him, gave him provisions, and gave him the sword of Goliath the Philistine."

nkjv@1Samuel:22:12 @ And Saul said, "Hear now, son of Ahitub!" He answered, "Here I am, my lord."

nkjv@1Samuel:22:17 @ Then the king said to the guards who stood about him, "Turn and kill the priests of the LORD, because their hand also is with David, and because they knew when he fled and did not tell it to me." But the servants of the king would not lift their hands to strike the priests of the LORD.

nkjv@1Samuel:22:21 @ And Abiathar told David that Saul had killed the LORD's priests.

nkjv@1Samuel:23:2 @ Therefore David inquired of the LORD, saying, "Shall I go and attack these Philistines?" And the LORD said to David, "Go and attack the Philistines, and save Keilah."

nkjv@1Samuel:23:4 @ Then David inquired of the LORD once again. And the LORD answered him and said, "Arise, go down to Keilah. For I will deliver the Philistines into your hand."

nkjv@1Samuel:23:10 @ Then David said, "O LORD God of Israel, Your servant has certainly heard that Saul seeks to come to Keilah to destroy the city for my sake.

nkjv@1Samuel:23:11 @ Will the men of Keilah deliver me into his hand? Will Saul come down, as Your servant has heard? O LORD God of Israel, I pray, tell Your servant." And the LORD said, "He will come down."

nkjv@1Samuel:23:12 @ Then David said, "Will the men of Keilah deliver me and my men into the hand of Saul?" And the LORD said, "They will deliver you."

nkjv@1Samuel:23:18 @ So the two of them made a covenant before the LORD. And David stayed in the woods, and Jonathan went to his own house.

nkjv@1Samuel:23:21 @ And Saul said, "Blessed are you of the LORD, for you have compassion on me.

nkjv@1Samuel:24:4 @ Then the men of David said to him, "This is the day of which the LORD said to you, "Behold, I will deliver your enemy into your hand, that you may do to him as it seems good to you."' And David arose and secretly cut off a corner of Saul's robe.

nkjv@1Samuel:24:6 @ And he said to his men, "The LORD forbid that I should do this thing to my master, the LORD's anointed, to stretch out my hand against him, seeing he is the anointed of the LORD."

nkjv@1Samuel:24:8 @ David also arose afterward, went out of the cave, and called out to Saul, saying, "My lord the king!" And when Saul looked behind him, David stooped with his face to the earth, and bowed down.

nkjv@1Samuel:24:18 @ And you have shown this day how you have dealt well with me; for when the LORD delivered me into your hand, you did not kill me.

nkjv@1Samuel:25:39 @ So when David heard that Nabal was dead, he said, "Blessed be the LORD, who has pleaded the cause of my reproach from the hand of Nabal, and has kept His servant from evil!

nkjv@2Samuel:2:1 @ It happened after this that David inquired of the LORD, saying, "Shall I go up to any of the cities of Judah?" And the LORD said to him, "Go up." David said, "Where shall I go up?" And He said, "To Hebron."

nkjv@2Samuel:2:5 @ So David sent messengers to the men of Jabesh Gilead, and said to them, "You are blessed of the LORD, for you have shown this kindness to your lord, to Saul, and have buried him.

nkjv@2Samuel:2:6 @ And now may the LORD show kindness and truth to you. I also will repay you this kindness, because you have done this thing.

nkjv@2Samuel:3:9 @ May God do so to Abner, and more also, if I do not do for David as the LORD has sworn to him--

nkjv@2Samuel:3:18 @ Now then, do it! For the LORD has spoken of David, saying, "By the hand of My servant David, I will save My people Israel from the hand of the Philistines and the hand of all their enemies."'

nkjv@2Samuel:3:21 @ Then Abner said to David, "I will arise and go, and gather all Israel to my lord the king, that they may make a covenant with you, and that you may reign over all that your heart desires." So David sent Abner away, and he went in peace.

nkjv@2Samuel:3:28 @ Afterward, when David heard it, he said, "My kingdom and I are guiltless before the LORD forever of the blood of Abner the son of Ner.

nkjv@2Samuel:3:39 @ And I am weak today, though anointed king; and these men, the sons of Zeruiah, are too harsh for me. The LORD shall repay the evildoer according to his wickedness."

nkjv@2Samuel:4:8 @ And they brought the head of Ishbosheth to David at Hebron, and said to the king, "Here is the head of Ishbosheth, the son of Saul your enemy, who sought your life; and the LORD has avenged my lord the king this day of Saul and his descendants."

nkjv@2Samuel:5:10 @ So David went on and became great, and the LORD God of hosts was with him.

nkjv@2Samuel:5:12 @ So David knew that the LORD had established him as king over Israel, and that He had exalted His kingdom for the sake of His people Israel.

nkjv@2Samuel:5:19 @ So David inquired of the LORD, saying, "Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You deliver them into my hand?" And the LORD said to David, "Go up, for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into your hand."

nkjv@2Samuel:5:20 @ So David went to Baal Perazim, and David defeated them there; and he said, "The LORD has broken through my enemies before me, like a breakthrough of water." Therefore he called the name of that place Baal Perazim.

nkjv@2Samuel:5:23 @ Therefore David inquired of the LORD, and He said, "You shall not go up; circle around behind them, and come upon them in front of the mulberry trees.

nkjv@2Samuel:5:24 @ And it shall be, when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, then you shall advance quickly. For then the LORD will go out before you to strike the camp of the Philistines."

nkjv@2Samuel:6:2 @ And David arose and went with all the people who were with him from Baale Judah to bring up from there the ark of God, whose name is called by the Name, the LORD of Hosts, who dwells between the cherubim.

nkjv@2Samuel:6:5 @ Then David and all the house of Israel played music before the LORD on all kinds of instruments of fir wood, on harps, on stringed instruments, on tambourines, on sistrums, and on cymbals.

nkjv@2Samuel:6:7 @ Then the anger of the LORD was aroused against Uzzah, and God struck him there for his error; and he died there by the ark of God.

nkjv@2Samuel:6:8 @ And David became angry because of the LORD's outbreak against Uzzah; and he called the name of the place Perez Uzzah to this day.

nkjv@2Samuel:6:9 @ David was afraid of the LORD that day; and he said, "How can the ark of the LORD come to me?"

nkjv@2Samuel:6:10 @ So David would not move the ark of the LORD with him into the City of David; but David took it aside into the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite.

nkjv@2Samuel:6:11 @ The ark of the LORD remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite three months. And the LORD blessed Obed-Edom and all his household.

nkjv@2Samuel:6:12 @ Now it was told King David, saying, "The LORD has blessed the house of Obed-Edom and all that belongs to him, because of the ark of God." So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with gladness.

nkjv@2Samuel:6:13 @ And so it was, when those bearing the ark of the LORD had gone six paces, that he sacrificed oxen and fatted sheep.

nkjv@2Samuel:6:14 @ Then David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was wearing a linen ephod.

nkjv@2Samuel:6:15 @ So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting and with the sound of the trumpet.

nkjv@2Samuel:6:16 @ Now as the ark of the LORD came into the City of David, Michal, Saul's daughter, looked through a window and saw King David leaping and whirling before the LORD; and she despised him in her heart.

nkjv@2Samuel:6:17 @ So they brought the ark of the LORD, and set it in its place in the midst of the tabernacle that David had erected for it. Then David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD.

nkjv@2Samuel:6:18 @ And when David had finished offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD of hosts.

nkjv@2Samuel:6:21 @ So David said to Michal, "It was before the LORD, who chose me instead of your father and all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over Israel. Therefore I will play music before the LORD.

nkjv@2Samuel:7:19 @ And yet this was a small thing in Your sight, O Lord GOD; and You have also spoken of Your servant's house for a great while to come. Is this the manner of man, O Lord GOD?

nkjv@2Samuel:7:20 @ Now what more can David say to You? For You, Lord GOD, know Your servant.

nkjv@2Samuel:7:22 @ Therefore You are great, O Lord GOD. For there is none like You, nor is there any God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

nkjv@2Samuel:7:24 @ For You have made Your people Israel Your very own people forever; and You, LORD, have become their God.

nkjv@2Samuel:7:25 @ "Now, O LORD God, the word which You have spoken concerning Your servant and concerning his house, establish it forever and do as You have said.

nkjv@2Samuel:8:6 @ Then David put garrisons in Syria of Damascus; and the Syrians became David's servants, and brought tribute. So the LORD preserved David wherever he went.

nkjv@2Samuel:8:11 @ King David also dedicated these to the LORD, along with the silver and gold that he had dedicated from all the nations which he had subdued--

nkjv@2Samuel:8:14 @ He also put garrisons in Edom; throughout all Edom he put garrisons, and all the Edomites became David's servants. And the LORD preserved David wherever he went.

nkjv@2Samuel:9:11 @ Then Ziba said to the king, "According to all that my lord the king has commanded his servant, so will your servant do." "As for Mephibosheth," said the king, "he shall eat at my table like one of the king's sons."

nkjv@2Samuel:10:3 @ And the princes of the people of Ammon said to Hanun their lord, "Do you think that David really honors your father because he has sent comforters to you? Has David not rather sent his servants to you to search the city, to spy it out, and to overthrow it?"

nkjv@2Samuel:10:12 @ Be of good courage, and let us be strong for our people and for the cities of our God. And may the LORD do what is good in His sight."

nkjv@2Samuel:12:20 @ So David arose from the ground, washed and anointed himself, and changed his clothes; and he went into the house of the LORD and worshiped. Then he went to his own house; and when he requested, they set food before him, and he ate.

nkjv@2Samuel:24:22 @ Now Araunah said to David, "Let my lord the king take and offer up whatever seems good to him. Look, here are oxen for burnt sacrifice, and threshing implements and the yokes of the oxen for wood.

nkjv@2Samuel:24:23 @ All these, O king, Araunah has given to the king." And Araunah said to the king, "May the LORD your God accept you."

nkjv@2Samuel:24:24 @ Then the king said to Araunah, "No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price; nor will I offer burnt offerings to the LORD my God with that which costs me nothing." So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.

nkjv@2Samuel:24:25 @ And David built there an altar to the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD heeded the prayers for the land, and the plague was withdrawn from Israel.

nkjv@1Kings:1:2 @ Therefore his servants said to him, "Let a young woman, a virgin, be sought for our lord the king, and let her stand before the king, and let her care for him; and let her lie in your bosom, that our lord the king may be warm."

nkjv@1Kings:1:13 @ Go immediately to King David and say to him, "Did you not, my lord, O king, swear to your maidservant, saying, "Assuredly your son Solomon shall reign after me, and he shall sit on my throne"? Why then has Adonijah become king?'

nkjv@1Kings:1:24 @ And Nathan said, "My lord, O king, have you said, "Adonijah shall reign after me, and he shall sit on my throne'?

nkjv@1Kings:1:27 @ Has this thing been done by my lord the king, and you have not told your servant who should sit on the throne of my lord the king after him?"

nkjv@1Kings:1:29 @ And the king took an oath and said, "As the LORD lives, who has redeemed my life from every distress,

nkjv@1Kings:1:30 @ just as I swore to you by the LORD God of Israel, saying, "Assuredly Solomon your son shall be king after me, and he shall sit on my throne in my place,' so I certainly will do this day."

nkjv@1Kings:1:47 @ And moreover the king's servants have gone to bless our lord King David, saying, "May God make the name of Solomon better than your name, and may He make his throne greater than your throne.' Then the king bowed himself on the bed.

nkjv@1Kings:2:24 @ Now therefore, as the LORD lives, who has confirmed me and set me on the throne of David my father, and who has established a house for me, as He promised, Adonijah shall be put to death today!"

nkjv@1Kings:2:26 @ And to Abiathar the priest the king said, "Go to Anathoth, to your own fields, for you are deserving of death; but I will not put you to death at this time, because you carried the ark of the Lord GOD before my father David, and because you were afflicted every time my father was afflicted."

nkjv@1Kings:2:27 @ So Solomon removed Abiathar from being priest to the LORD, that he might fulfill the word of the LORD which He spoke concerning the house of Eli at Shiloh.

nkjv@1Kings:2:28 @ Then news came to Joab, for Joab had defected to Adonijah, though he had not defected to Absalom. So Joab fled to the tabernacle of the LORD, and took hold of the horns of the altar.

nkjv@1Kings:2:29 @ And King Solomon was told, "Joab has fled to the tabernacle of the LORD; there he is, by the altar." Then Solomon sent Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, saying, "Go, strike him down."

nkjv@1Kings:2:32 @ So the LORD will return his blood on his head, because he struck down two men more righteous and better than he, and killed them with the sword--Abner the son of Ner, the commander of the army of Israel, and Amasa the son of Jether, the commander of the army of Judah--though my father David did not know it.

nkjv@1Kings:2:33 @ Their blood shall therefore return upon the head of Joab and upon the head of his descendants forever. But upon David and his descendants, upon his house and his throne, there shall be peace forever from the LORD."

nkjv@1Kings:2:42 @ Then the king sent and called for Shimei, and said to him, "Did I not make you swear by the LORD, and warn you, saying, "Know for certain that on the day you go out and travel anywhere, you shall surely die'? And you said to me, "The word I have heard is good.'

nkjv@1Kings:2:43 @ Why then have you not kept the oath of the LORD and the commandment that I gave you?"

nkjv@1Kings:2:44 @ The king said moreover to Shimei, "You know, as your heart acknowledges, all the wickedness that you did to my father David; therefore the LORD will return your wickedness on your own head.

nkjv@1Kings:3:1 @ Now Solomon made a treaty with Pharaoh king of Egypt, and married Pharaoh's daughter; then he brought her to the City of David until he had finished building his own house, and the house of the LORD, and the wall all around Jerusalem.

nkjv@1Kings:3:2 @ Meanwhile the people sacrificed at the high places, because there was no house built for the name of the LORD until those days.

nkjv@1Kings:3:3 @ And Solomon loved the LORD, walking in the statutes of his father David, except that he sacrificed and burned incense at the high places.

nkjv@1Kings:3:5 @ At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night; and God said, "Ask! What shall I give you?"

nkjv@1Kings:3:7 @ Now, O LORD my God, You have made Your servant king instead of my father David, but I am a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in.

nkjv@1Kings:3:10 @ The speech pleased the LORD, that Solomon had asked this thing.

nkjv@1Kings:3:15 @ Then Solomon awoke; and indeed it had been a dream. And he came to Jerusalem and stood before the ark of the covenant of the LORD, offered up burnt offerings, offered peace offerings, and made a feast for all his servants.

nkjv@1Kings:3:17 @ And one woman said, "O my lord, this woman and I dwell in the same house; and I gave birth while she was in the house.

nkjv@1Kings:3:26 @ Then the woman whose son was living spoke to the king, for she yearned with compassion for her son; and she said, "O my lord, give her the living child, and by no means kill him!" But the other said, "Let him be neither mine nor yours, but divide him."

nkjv@1Kings:5:3 @ You know how my father David could not build a house for the name of the LORD his God because of the wars which were fought against him on every side, until the LORD put his foes under the soles of his feet.

nkjv@1Kings:5:4 @ But now the LORD my God has given me rest on every side; there is neither adversary nor evil occurrence.

nkjv@1Kings:5:5 @ And behold, I propose to build a house for the name of the LORD my God, as the LORD spoke to my father David, saying, "Your son, whom I will set on your throne in your place, he shall build the house for My name."

nkjv@1Kings:5:7 @ So it was, when Hiram heard the words of Solomon, that he rejoiced greatly and said, 4 Blessed be the LORD this day, for He has given David a wise son over this great people!

nkjv@1Kings:5:12 @ So the LORD gave Solomon wisdom, as He had promised him; and there was peace between Hiram and Solomon, and the two of them made a treaty together.

nkjv@1Kings:6:1 @ And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel had come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month of Ziv, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the LORD.

nkjv@1Kings:6:2 @ Now the house which King Solomon built for the LORD, its length was sixty cubits, its width twenty, and its height thirty cubits.

nkjv@1Kings:6:11 @ Then the word of the LORD came to Solomon, saying:

nkjv@1Kings:6:19 @ And he prepared the inner sanctuary inside the temple, to set the ark of the covenant of the LORD there.

nkjv@1Kings:6:37 @ In the fourth year the foundation of the house of the LORD was laid, in the month of Ziv.

nkjv@1Kings:7:12 @ The great court was enclosed with three rows of hewn stones and a row of cedar beams. So were the inner court of the house of the LORD and the vestibule of the temple.

nkjv@1Kings:7:40 @ Huram made the lavers and the shovels and the bowls. So Huram finished doing all the work that he was to do for King Solomon for the house of the LORD:

nkjv@1Kings:7:45 @ the pots, the shovels, and the bowls. All these articles which Huram made for King Solomon for the house of the LORD were of burnished bronze.

nkjv@1Kings:7:48 @ Thus Solomon had all the furnishings made for the house of the LORD: the altar of gold, and the table of gold on which was the showbread;

nkjv@1Kings:7:51 @ So all the work that King Solomon had done for the house of the LORD was finished; and Solomon brought in the things which his father David had dedicated: the silver and the gold and the furnishings. He put them in the treasuries of the house of the LORD.

nkjv@1Kings:8:1 @ Now Solomon assembled the elders of Israel and all the heads of the tribes, the chief fathers of the children of Israel, to King Solomon in Jerusalem, that they might bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD from the City of David, which is Zion.

nkjv@1Kings:8:4 @ Then they brought up the ark of the LORD, the tabernacle of meeting, and all the holy furnishings that were in the tabernacle. The priests and the Levites brought them up.

nkjv@1Kings:8:6 @ Then the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the LORD to its place, into the inner sanctuary of the temple, to the Most Holy Place, under the wings of the cherubim.

nkjv@1Kings:8:9 @ Nothing was in the ark except the two tablets of stone which Moses put there at Horeb, when the LORD made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt.

nkjv@1Kings:8:10 @ And it came to pass, when the priests came out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD,

nkjv@1Kings:8:11 @ so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD.

nkjv@1Kings:8:12 @ Then Solomon spoke: "The LORD said He would dwell in the dark cloud.

nkjv@1Kings:8:15 @ And he said: "Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, who spoke with His mouth to my father David, and with His hand has fulfilled it, saying,

nkjv@1Kings:8:17 @ Now it was in the heart of my father David to build a temple for the name of the LORD God of Israel.

nkjv@1Kings:8:18 @ But the LORD said to my father David, "Whereas it was in your heart to build a temple for My name, you did well that it was in your heart.

nkjv@1Kings:8:20 @ So the LORD has fulfilled His word which He spoke; and I have filled the position of my father David, and sit on the throne of Israel, as the LORD promised; and I have built a temple for the name of the LORD God of Israel.

nkjv@1Kings:8:21 @ And there I have made a place for the ark, in which is the covenant of the LORD which He made with our fathers, when He brought them out of the land of Egypt."

nkjv@1Kings:8:22 @ Then Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the assembly of Israel, and spread out his hands toward heaven;

nkjv@1Kings:8:23 @ and he said: "LORD God of Israel, there is no God in heaven above or on earth below like You, who keep Your covenant and mercy with Your servants who walk before You with all their hearts.

nkjv@1Kings:8:25 @ Therefore, LORD God of Israel, now keep what You promised Your servant David my father, saying, "You shall not fail to have a man sit before Me on the throne of Israel, only if your sons take heed to their way, that they walk before Me as you have walked before Me.'

nkjv@1Kings:8:28 @ Yet regard the prayer of Your servant and his supplication, O LORD my God, and listen to the cry and the prayer which Your servant is praying before You today:

nkjv@1Kings:8:44 @ "When Your people go out to battle against their enemy, wherever You send them, and when they pray to the LORD toward the city which You have chosen and the temple which I have built for Your name,

nkjv@1Kings:8:53 @ For You separated them from among all the peoples of the earth to be Your inheritance, as You spoke by Your servant Moses, when You brought our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord GOD."

nkjv@1Kings:8:54 @ And so it was, when Solomon had finished praying all this prayer and supplication to the LORD, that he arose from before the altar of the LORD, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven.

nkjv@1Kings:8:56 @ "Blessed be the LORD, who has given rest to His people Israel, according to all that He promised. There has not failed one word of all His good promise, which He promised through His servant Moses.

nkjv@1Kings:8:57 @ May the LORD our God be with us, as He was with our fathers. May He not leave us nor forsake us,

nkjv@1Kings:8:59 @ And may these words of mine, with which I have made supplication before the LORD, be near the LORD our God day and night, that He may maintain the cause of His servant and the cause of His people Israel, as each day may require,

nkjv@1Kings:8:61 @ Let your heart therefore be loyal to the LORD our God, to walk in His statutes and keep His commandments, as at this day."

nkjv@1Kings:8:62 @ Then the king and all Israel with him offered sacrifices before the LORD.

nkjv@1Kings:8:63 @ And Solomon offered a sacrifice of peace offerings, which he offered to the LORD, twenty-two thousand bulls and one hundred and twenty thousand sheep. So the king and all the children of Israel dedicated the house of the LORD.

nkjv@1Kings:8:64 @ On the same day the king consecrated the middle of the court that was in front of the house of the LORD; for there he offered burnt offerings, grain offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings, because the bronze altar that was before the LORD was too small to receive the burnt offerings, the grain offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings.

nkjv@1Kings:8:65 @ At that time Solomon held a feast, and all Israel with him, a great assembly from the entrance of Hamath to the Brook of Egypt, before the LORD our God, seven days and seven more days--fourteen days.

nkjv@1Kings:8:66 @ On the eighth day he sent the people away; and they blessed the king, and went to their tents joyful and glad of heart for all the good that the LORD had done for His servant David, and for Israel His people.

nkjv@1Kings:9:1 @ And it came to pass, when Solomon had finished building the house of the LORD and the king's house, and all Solomon's desire which he wanted to do,

nkjv@1Kings:9:2 @ that the LORD appeared to Solomon the second time, as He had appeared to him at Gibeon.

nkjv@1Kings:9:3 @ And the LORD said to him: "I have heard your prayer and your supplication that you have made before Me; I have consecrated this house which you have built to put My name there forever, and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.

nkjv@1Kings:9:8 @ And as for this house, which is exalted, everyone who passes by it will be astonished and will hiss, and say, "Why has the LORD done thus to this land and to this house?'

nkjv@1Kings:9:9 @ Then they will answer, "Because they forsook the LORD their God, who brought their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have embraced other gods, and worshiped them and served them; therefore the LORD has brought all this calamity on them."'

nkjv@1Kings:9:10 @ Now it happened at the end of twenty years, when Solomon had built the two houses, the house of the LORD and the king's house

nkjv@1Kings:9:15 @ And this is the reason for the labor force which King Solomon raised: to build the house of the LORD, his own house, the Millo, the wall of Jerusalem, Hazor, Megiddo, and Gezer.

nkjv@1Kings:9:25 @ Now three times a year Solomon offered burnt offerings and peace offerings on the altar which he had built for the LORD, and he burned incense with them on the altar that was before the LORD. So he finished the temple.

nkjv@1Kings:10:1 @ Now when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the LORD, she came to test him with hard questions.

nkjv@1Kings:10:12 @ And the king made steps of the almug wood for the house of the LORD and for the king's house, also harps and stringed instruments for singers. There never again came such almug wood, nor has the like been seen to this day.

nkjv@1Kings:11:2 @ from the nations of whom the LORD had said to the children of Israel, "You shall not intermarry with them, nor they with you. Surely they will turn away your hearts after their gods." Solomon clung to these in love.

nkjv@1Kings:11:4 @ For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his heart after other gods; and his heart was not loyal to the LORD his God, as was the heart of his father David.

nkjv@1Kings:11:6 @ Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and did not fully follow the LORD, as did his father David.

nkjv@1Kings:11:9 @ So the LORD became angry with Solomon, because his heart had turned from the LORD God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice,

nkjv@1Kings:11:10 @ and had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods; but he did not keep what the LORD had commanded.

nkjv@1Kings:11:11 @ Therefore the LORD said to Solomon, "Because you have done this, and have not kept My covenant and My statutes, which I have commanded you, I will surely tear the kingdom away from you and give it to your servant.

nkjv@1Kings:11:14 @ Now the LORD raised up an adversary against Solomon, Hadad the Edomite; he was a descendant of the king in Edom.

nkjv@1Kings:11:23 @ And God raised up another adversary against him, Rezon the son of Eliadah, who had fled from his lord, Hadadezer king of Zobah.

nkjv@1Kings:12:24 @ "Thus says the LORD: "You shall not go up nor fight against your brethren the children of Israel. Let every man return to his house, for this thing is from Me.""' Therefore they obeyed the word of the LORD, and turned back, according to the word of the LORD.

nkjv@2Kings:22:5 @ And let them deliver it into the hand of those doing the work, who are the overseers in the house of the LORD; let them give it to those who are in the house of the LORD doing the work, to repair the damages of the house--

nkjv@2Kings:22:8 @ Then Hilkiah the high priest said to Shaphan the scribe, "I have found the Book of the Law in the house of the LORD." And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it.

nkjv@2Kings:22:9 @ So Shaphan the scribe went to the king, bringing the king word, saying, "Your servants have gathered the money that was found in the house, and have delivered it into the hand of those who do the work, who oversee the house of the LORD."

nkjv@2Kings:22:13 @ "Go, inquire of the LORD for me, for the people and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that has been found; for great is the wrath of the LORD that is aroused against us, because our fathers have not obeyed the words of this book, to do according to all that is written concerning us."

nkjv@2Kings:22:15 @ Then she said to them, "Thus says the LORD God of Israel, "Tell the man who sent you to Me,

nkjv@2Kings:22:16 @ "Thus says the LORD: "Behold, I will bring calamity on this place and on its inhabitants--all the words of the book which the king of Judah has read--

nkjv@2Kings:22:18 @ But as for the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of the LORD, in this manner you shall speak to him, "Thus says the LORD God of Israel: "Concerning the words which you have heard--

nkjv@2Kings:22:19 @ because your heart was tender, and you humbled yourself before the LORD when you heard what I spoke against this place and against its inhabitants, that they would become a desolation and a curse, and you tore your clothes and wept before Me, I also have heard you," says the LORD.

nkjv@2Kings:23:2 @ The king went up to the house of the LORD with all the men of Judah, and with him all the inhabitants of Jerusalem--the priests and the prophets and all the people, both small and great. And he read in their hearing all the words of the Book of the Covenant which had been found in the house of the LORD.

nkjv@2Kings:23:3 @ Then the king stood by a pillar and made a covenant before the LORD, to follow the LORD and to keep His commandments and His testimonies and His statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book. And all the people took a stand for the covenant.

nkjv@2Kings:23:4 @ And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, the priests of the second order, and the doorkeepers, to bring out of the temple of the LORD all the articles that were made for Baal, for Asherah, and for all the host of heaven; and he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel.

nkjv@2Kings:23:6 @ And he brought out the wooden image from the house of the LORD, to the Brook Kidron outside Jerusalem, burned it at the Brook Kidron and ground it to ashes, and threw its ashes on the graves of the common people.

nkjv@2Kings:23:7 @ Then he tore down the ritual booths of the perverted persons that were in the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the wooden image.

nkjv@2Kings:23:9 @ Nevertheless the priests of the high places did not come up to the altar of the LORD in Jerusalem, but they ate unleavened bread among their brethren.

nkjv@2Kings:23:11 @ Then he removed the horses that the kings of Judah had dedicated to the sun, at the entrance to the house of the LORD, by the chamber of Nathan-Melech, the officer who was in the court; and he burned the chariots of the sun with fire.

nkjv@2Kings:23:12 @ The altars that were on the roof, the upper chamber of Ahaz, which the kings of Judah had made, and the altars which Manasseh had made in the two courts of the house of the LORD, the king broke down and pulverized there, and threw their dust into the Brook Kidron.

nkjv@2Kings:23:16 @ As Josiah turned, he saw the tombs that were there on the mountain. And he sent and took the bones out of the tombs and burned them on the altar, and defiled it according to the word of the LORD which the man of God proclaimed, who proclaimed these words.

nkjv@2Kings:23:19 @ Now Josiah also took away all the shrines of the high places that were in the cities of Samaria, which the kings of Israel had made to provoke the LORD to anger; and he did to them according to all the deeds he had done in Bethel.

nkjv@2Kings:23:21 @ Then the king commanded all the people, saying, "Keep the Passover to the LORD your God, as it is written in this Book of the Covenant."

nkjv@2Kings:23:23 @ But in the eighteenth year of King Josiah this Passover was held before the LORD in Jerusalem.

nkjv@2Kings:23:24 @ Moreover Josiah put away those who consulted mediums and spiritists, the household gods and idols, all the abominations that were seen in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, that he might perform the words of the law which were written in the book that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of the LORD.

nkjv@2Kings:23:25 @ Now before him there was no king like him, who turned to the LORD with all his heart, with all his soul, and with all his might, according to all the Law of Moses; nor after him did any arise like him.

nkjv@2Kings:23:26 @ Nevertheless the LORD did not turn from the fierceness of His great wrath, with which His anger was aroused against Judah, because of all the provocations with which Manasseh had provoked Him.

nkjv@2Kings:23:27 @ And the LORD said, "I will also remove Judah from My sight, as I have removed Israel, and will cast off this city Jerusalem which I have chosen, and the house of which I said, "My name shall be there."'

nkjv@2Kings:23:32 @ And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his fathers had done.

nkjv@2Kings:23:37 @ And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his fathers had done.

nkjv@2Kings:24:2 @ And the LORD sent against him raiding bands of Chaldeans, bands of Syrians, bands of Moabites, and bands of the people of Ammon; He sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the LORD which He had spoken by His servants the prophets.

nkjv@2Kings:24:3 @ Surely at the commandment of the LORD this came upon Judah, to remove them from His sight because of the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he had done,

nkjv@2Kings:24:4 @ and also because of the innocent blood that he had shed; for he had filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, which the LORD would not pardon.

nkjv@2Kings:24:9 @ And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father had done.

nkjv@2Kings:24:13 @ And he carried out from there all the treasures of the house of the LORD and the treasures of the king's house, and he cut in pieces all the articles of gold which Solomon king of Israel had made in the temple of the LORD, as the LORD had said.

nkjv@2Kings:24:19 @ He also did evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that Jehoiakim had done.

nkjv@2Kings:24:20 @ For because of the anger of the LORD this happened in Jerusalem and Judah, that He finally cast them out from His presence. Then Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon.

nkjv@2Kings:25:9 @ He burned the house of the LORD and the king's house; all the houses of Jerusalem, that is, all the houses of the great, he burned with fire.

nkjv@2Kings:25:13 @ The bronze pillars that were in the house of the LORD, and the carts and the bronze Sea that were in the house of the LORD, the Chaldeans broke in pieces, and carried their bronze to Babylon.

nkjv@2Kings:25:16 @ The two pillars, one Sea, and the carts, which Solomon had made for the house of the LORD, the bronze of all these articles was beyond measure.

nkjv@1Chronicles:2:3 @ The sons of Judah were Er, Onan, and Shelah. These three were born to him by the daughter of Shua, the Canaanitess. Er, the firstborn of Judah, was wicked in the sight of the LORD; so He killed him.

nkjv@1Chronicles:6:15 @ Jehozadak went into captivity when the LORD carried Judah and Jerusalem into captivity by the hand of Nebuchadnezzar.

nkjv@1Chronicles:6:31 @ Now these are the men whom David appointed over the service of song in the house of the LORD, after the ark came to rest.

nkjv@1Chronicles:6:32 @ They were ministering with music before the dwelling place of the tabernacle of meeting, until Solomon had built the house of the LORD in Jerusalem, and they served in their office according to their order.

nkjv@1Chronicles:9:19 @ Shallum the son of Kore, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah, and his brethren, from his father's house, the Korahites, were in charge of the work of the service, gatekeepers of the tabernacle. Their fathers had been keepers of the entrance to the camp of the LORD.

nkjv@1Chronicles:9:20 @ And Phinehas the son of Eleazar had been the officer over them in time past; the LORD was with him.

nkjv@1Chronicles:9:23 @ So they and their children were in charge of the gates of the house of the LORD, the house of the tabernacle, by assignment.

nkjv@1Chronicles:10:13 @ So Saul died for his unfaithfulness which he had committed against the LORD, because he did not keep the word of the LORD, and also because he consulted a medium for guidance.

nkjv@1Chronicles:10:14 @ But he did not inquire of the LORD; therefore He killed him, and turned the kingdom over to David the son of Jesse.

nkjv@1Chronicles:11:2 @ Also, in time past, even when Saul was king, you were the one who led Israel out and brought them in; and the LORD your God said to you, "You shall shepherd My people Israel, and be ruler over My people Israel."'

nkjv@1Chronicles:11:3 @ Therefore all the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron, and David made a covenant with them at Hebron before the LORD. And they anointed David king over Israel, according to the word of the LORD by Samuel.

nkjv@1Chronicles:11:9 @ So David went on and became great, and the LORD of hosts was with him.

nkjv@1Chronicles:11:10 @ Now these were the heads of the mighty men whom David had, who strengthened themselves with him in his kingdom, with all Israel, to make him king, according to the word of the LORD concerning Israel.

nkjv@1Chronicles:11:14 @ But they stationed themselves in the middle of that field, defended it, and killed the Philistines. So the LORD brought about a great victory.

nkjv@1Chronicles:11:18 @ So the three broke through the camp of the Philistines, drew water from the well of Bethlehem that was by the gate, and took it and brought it to David. Nevertheless David would not drink it, but poured it out to the LORD.

nkjv@1Chronicles:12:19 @ And some from Manasseh defected to David when he was going with the Philistines to battle against Saul; but they did not help them, for the lords of the Philistines sent him away by agreement, saying, "He may defect to his master Saul and endanger our heads."

nkjv@1Chronicles:12:23 @ Now these were the numbers of the divisions that were equipped for war, and came to David at Hebron to turn over the kingdom of Saul to him, according to the word of the LORD:

nkjv@1Chronicles:13:2 @ And David said to all the assembly of Israel, "If it seems good to you, and if it is of the LORD our God, let us send out to our brethren everywhere who are left in all the land of Israel, and with them to the priests and Levites who are in their cities and their common-lands, that they may gather together to us;

nkjv@1Chronicles:13:6 @ And David and all Israel went up to Baalah, to Kirjath Jearim, which belonged to Judah, to bring up from there the ark of God the LORD, who dwells between the cherubim, where His name is proclaimed.

nkjv@1Chronicles:13:10 @ Then the anger of the LORD was aroused against Uzza, and He struck him because he put his hand to the ark; and he died there before God.

nkjv@1Chronicles:13:11 @ And David became angry because of the LORD's outbreak against Uzza; therefore that place is called Perez Uzza to this day.

nkjv@1Chronicles:13:14 @ The ark of God remained with the family of Obed-Edom in his house three months. And the LORD blessed the house of Obed-Edom and all that he had.

nkjv@1Chronicles:14:2 @ So David knew that the LORD had established him as king over Israel, for his kingdom was highly exalted for the sake of His people Israel.

nkjv@1Chronicles:14:10 @ And David inquired of God, saying, "Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You deliver them into my hand?" The LORD said to him, "Go up, for I will deliver them into your hand."

nkjv@1Chronicles:14:17 @ Then the fame of David went out into all lands, and the LORD brought the fear of him upon all nations.

nkjv@1Chronicles:15:2 @ Then David said, "No one may carry the ark of God but the Levites, for the LORD has chosen them to carry the ark of God and to minister before Him forever."

nkjv@1Chronicles:15:3 @ And David gathered all Israel together at Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the LORD to its place, which he had prepared for it.

nkjv@1Chronicles:15:12 @ He said to them, "You are the heads of the fathers' houses of the Levites; sanctify yourselves, you and your brethren, that you may bring up the ark of the LORD God of Israel to the place I have prepared for it.

nkjv@1Chronicles:15:13 @ For because you did not do it the first time, the LORD our God broke out against us, because we did not consult Him about the proper order."

nkjv@1Chronicles:15:14 @ So the priests and the Levites sanctified themselves to bring up the ark of the LORD God of Israel.

nkjv@1Chronicles:15:15 @ And the children of the Levites bore the ark of God on their shoulders, by its poles, as Moses had commanded according to the word of the LORD.

nkjv@1Chronicles:15:25 @ So David, the elders of Israel, and the captains over thousands went to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD from the house of Obed-Edom with joy.

nkjv@1Chronicles:15:26 @ And so it was, when God helped the Levites who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD, that they offered seven bulls and seven rams.

nkjv@1Chronicles:15:28 @ Thus all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the LORD with shouting and with the sound of the horn, with trumpets and with cymbals, making music with stringed instruments and harps.

nkjv@1Chronicles:15:29 @ And it happened, as the ark of the covenant of the LORD came to the City of David, that Michal, Saul's daughter, looked through a window and saw King David whirling and playing music; and she despised him in her heart.

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:2 @ And when David had finished offering the burnt offerings and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD.

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:4 @ And he appointed some of the Levites to minister before the ark of the LORD, to commemorate, to thank, and to praise the LORD God of Israel:

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:7 @ On that day David first delivered this psalm into the hand of Asaph and his brethren, to thank the LORD:

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:8 @ Oh, give thanks to the LORD! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples!

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:10 @ Glory in His holy name; Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD!

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:11 @ Seek the LORD and His strength; Seek His face evermore!

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:14 @ He is the LORD our God; His judgments are in all the earth.

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:23 @ Sing to the LORD, all the earth; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:25 @ For the LORD is great and greatly to be praised; He is also to be feared above all gods.

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:26 @ For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the LORD made the heavens.

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:28 @ Give to the LORD, O families of the peoples, Give to the LORD glory and strength.

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:29 @ Give to the LORD the glory due His name; Bring an offering, and come before Him. Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness!

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:31 @ Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; And let them say among the nations, "The LORD reigns."

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:33 @ Then the trees of the woods shall rejoice before the LORD, For He is coming to judge the earth.

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:34 @ Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:36 @ Blessed be the LORD God of Israel From everlasting to everlasting! And all the people said, "Amen!" and praised the LORD.

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:37 @ So he left Asaph and his brothers there before the ark of the covenant of the LORD to minister before the ark regularly, as every day's work required;

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:39 @ and Zadok the priest and his brethren the priests, before the tabernacle of the LORD at the high place that was at Gibeon,

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:40 @ to offer burnt offerings to the LORD on the altar of burnt offering regularly morning and evening, and to do according to all that is written in the Law of the LORD which He commanded Israel;

nkjv@1Chronicles:16:41 @ and with them Heman and Jeduthun and the rest who were chosen, who were designated by name, to give thanks to the LORD, because His mercy endures forever;

nkjv@1Chronicles:17:1 @ Now it came to pass, when David was dwelling in his house, that David said to Nathan the prophet, "See now, I dwell in a house of cedar, but the ark of the covenant of the LORD is under tent curtains."

nkjv@1Chronicles:17:4 @ "Go and tell My servant David, "Thus says the LORD: "You shall not build Me a house to dwell in.

nkjv@1Chronicles:17:7 @ Now therefore, thus shall you say to My servant David, "Thus says the LORD of hosts: "I took you from the sheepfold, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people Israel.

nkjv@1Chronicles:17:10 @ since the time that I commanded judges to be over My people Israel. Also I will subdue all your enemies. Furthermore I tell you that the LORD will build you a house.

nkjv@1Chronicles:17:16 @ Then King David went in and sat before the LORD; and he said: "Who am I, O LORD God? And what is my house, that You have brought me this far?

nkjv@1Chronicles:17:17 @ And yet this was a small thing in Your sight, O God; and You have also spoken of Your servant's house for a great while to come, and have regarded me according to the rank of a man of high degree, O LORD God.

nkjv@1Chronicles:17:19 @ O LORD, for Your servant's sake, and according to Your own heart, You have done all this greatness, in making known all these great things.

nkjv@1Chronicles:17:20 @ O LORD, there is none like You, nor is there any God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

nkjv@1Chronicles:17:22 @ For You have made Your people Israel Your very own people forever; and You, LORD, have become their God.

nkjv@1Chronicles:17:23 @ "And now, O LORD, the word which You have spoken concerning Your servant and concerning his house, let it be established forever, and do as You have said.

nkjv@1Chronicles:17:24 @ So let it be established, that Your name may be magnified forever, saying, "The LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, is Israel's God.' And let the house of Your servant David be established before You.

nkjv@1Chronicles:17:26 @ And now, LORD, You are God, and have promised this goodness to Your servant.

nkjv@1Chronicles:17:27 @ Now You have been pleased to bless the house of Your servant, that it may continue before You forever; for You have blessed it, O LORD, and it shall be blessed forever."

nkjv@1Chronicles:18:6 @ Then David put garrisons in Syria of Damascus; and the Syrians became David's servants, and brought tribute. So the LORD preserved David wherever he went.

nkjv@1Chronicles:18:11 @ King David also dedicated these to the LORD, along with the silver and gold that he had brought from all these nations--from Edom, from Moab, from the people of Ammon, from the Philistines, and from Amalek.

nkjv@1Chronicles:18:13 @ He also put garrisons in Edom, and all the Edomites became David's servants. And the LORD preserved David wherever he went.

nkjv@1Chronicles:19:13 @ Be of good courage, and let us be strong for our people and for the cities of our God. And may the LORD do what is good in His sight."

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:3 @ And Joab answered, "May the LORD make His people a hundred times more than they are. But, my lord the king, are they not all my lord's servants? Why then does my lord require this thing? Why should he be a cause of guilt in Israel?"

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:9 @ Then the LORD spoke to Gad, David's seer, saying,

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:10 @ "Go and tell David, saying, "Thus says the LORD: "I offer you three things; choose one of them for yourself, that I may do it to you.""'

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:11 @ So Gad came to David and said to him, "Thus says the LORD: "Choose for yourself,

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:12 @ either three years of famine, or three months to be defeated by your foes with the sword of your enemies overtaking you, or else for three days the sword of the LORD--the plague in the land, with the angel of the LORD destroying throughout all the territory of Israel.' Now consider what answer I should take back to Him who sent me."

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:13 @ And David said to Gad, "I am in great distress. Please let me fall into the hand of the LORD, for His mercies are very great; but do not let me fall into the hand of man."

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:14 @ So the LORD sent a plague upon Israel, and seventy thousand men of Israel fell.

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:15 @ And God sent an angel to Jerusalem to destroy it. As he was destroying, the LORD looked and relented of the disaster, and said to the angel who was destroying, "It is enough; now restrain your hand." And the angel of the LORD stood by the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:16 @ Then David lifted his eyes and saw the angel of the LORD standing between earth and heaven, having in his hand a drawn sword stretched out over Jerusalem. So David and the elders, clothed in sackcloth, fell on their faces.

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:17 @ And David said to God, "Was it not I who commanded the people to be numbered? I am the one who has sinned and done evil indeed; but these sheep, what have they done? Let Your hand, I pray, O LORD my God, be against me and my father's house, but not against Your people that they should be plagued."

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:18 @ Therefore, the angel of the LORD commanded Gad to say to David that David should go and erect an altar to the LORD on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:19 @ So David went up at the word of Gad, which he had spoken in the name of the LORD.

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:22 @ Then David said to Ornan, "Grant me the place of this threshing floor, that I may build an altar on it to the LORD. You shall grant it to me at the full price, that the plague may be withdrawn from the people."

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:23 @ But Ornan said to David, "Take it to yourself, and let my lord the king do what is good in his eyes. Look, I also give you the oxen for burnt offerings, the threshing implements for wood, and the wheat for the grain offering; I give it all."

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:24 @ Then King David said to Ornan, "No, but I will surely buy it for the full price, for I will not take what is yours for the LORD, nor offer burnt offerings with that which costs me nothing."

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:26 @ And David built there an altar to the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings, and called on the LORD; and He answered him from heaven by fire on the altar of burnt offering.

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:27 @ So the LORD commanded the angel, and he returned his sword to its sheath.

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:28 @ At that time, when David saw that the LORD had answered him on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite, he sacrificed there.

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:29 @ For the tabernacle of the LORD and the altar of the burnt offering, which Moses had made in the wilderness, were at that time at the high place in Gibeon.

nkjv@1Chronicles:21:30 @ But David could not go before it to inquire of God, for he was afraid of the sword of the angel of the LORD.

nkjv@1Chronicles:22:1 @ Then David said, "This is the house of the LORD God, and this is the altar of burnt offering for Israel."

nkjv@1Chronicles:22:5 @ Now David said, "Solomon my son is young and inexperienced, and the house to be built for the LORD must be exceedingly magnificent, famous and glorious throughout all countries. I will now make preparation for it." So David made abundant preparations before his death.

nkjv@1Chronicles:22:6 @ Then he called for his son Solomon, and charged him to build a house for the LORD God of Israel.

nkjv@1Chronicles:22:7 @ And David said to Solomon: "My son, as for me, it was in my mind to build a house to the name of the LORD my God;

nkjv@1Chronicles:22:14 @ Indeed I have taken much trouble to prepare for the house of the LORD one hundred thousand talents of gold and one million talents of silver, and bronze and iron beyond measure, for it is so abundant. I have prepared timber and stone also, and you may add to them.

nkjv@1Chronicles:29:21 @ And they made sacrifices to the LORD and offered burnt offerings to the LORD on the next day: a thousand bulls, a thousand rams, a thousand lambs, with their drink offerings, and sacrifices in abundance for all Israel.

nkjv@1Chronicles:29:22 @ So they ate and drank before the LORD with great gladness on that day. And they made Solomon the son of David king the second time, and anointed him before the LORD to be the leader, and Zadok to be priest.

nkjv@1Chronicles:29:23 @ Then Solomon sat on the throne of the LORD as king instead of David his father, and prospered; and all Israel obeyed him.

nkjv@1Chronicles:29:25 @ So the LORD exalted Solomon exceedingly in the sight of all Israel, and bestowed on him such royal majesty as had not been on any king before him in Israel.

nkjv@2Chronicles:1:1 @ Now Solomon the son of David was strengthened in his kingdom, and the LORD his God was with him and exalted him exceedingly.

nkjv@2Chronicles:1:3 @ Then Solomon, and all the assembly with him, went to the high place that was at Gibeon; for the tabernacle of meeting with God was there, which Moses the servant of the LORD had made in the wilderness.

nkjv@2Chronicles:1:5 @ Now the bronze altar that Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, had made, he put before the tabernacle of the LORD; Solomon and the assembly sought Him there.

nkjv@2Chronicles:1:9 @ Now, O LORD God, let Your promise to David my father be established, for You have made me king over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude.

nkjv@2Chronicles:2:1 @ Then Solomon determined to build a temple for the name of the LORD, and a royal house for himself.

nkjv@2Chronicles:2:4 @ Behold, I am building a temple for the name of the LORD my God, to dedicate it to Him, to burn before Him sweet incense, for the continual showbread, for the burnt offerings morning and evening, on the Sabbaths, on the New Moons, and on the set feasts of the LORD our God. This is an ordinance forever to Israel.

nkjv@2Chronicles:2:11 @ Then Hiram king of Tyre answered in writing, which he sent to Solomon: 4 Because the LORD loves His people, He has made you king over them.

nkjv@2Chronicles:2:12 @ Hiram also said: 4 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, who made heaven and earth, for He has given King David a wise son, endowed with prudence and understanding, who will build a temple for the LORD and a royal house for himself!

nkjv@2Chronicles:3:1 @ Now Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where the LORD had appeared to his father David, at the place that David had prepared on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.

nkjv@2Chronicles:5:2 @ Now Solomon assembled the elders of Israel and all the heads of the tribes, the chief fathers of the children of Israel, in Jerusalem, that they might bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD up from the City of David, which is Zion.

nkjv@2Chronicles:5:7 @ Then the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the LORD to its place, into the inner sanctuary of the temple, to the Most Holy Place, under the wings of the cherubim.

nkjv@2Chronicles:5:10 @ Nothing was in the ark except the two tablets which Moses put there at Horeb, when the LORD made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they had come out of Egypt.

nkjv@2Chronicles:5:13 @ indeed it came to pass, when the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD, and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the LORD, saying: "For He is good, For His mercy endures forever," that the house, the house of the LORD, was filled with a cloud,

nkjv@2Chronicles:5:14 @ so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the LORD filled the house of God.

nkjv@2Chronicles:6:11 @ And there I have put the ark, in which is the covenant of the LORD which He made with the children of Israel."

nkjv@2Chronicles:6:12 @ Then Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the assembly of Israel, and spread out his hands

nkjv@2Chronicles:6:14 @ and he said: "LORD God of Israel, there is no God in heaven or on earth like You, who keep Your covenant and mercy with Your servants who walk before You with all their hearts.

nkjv@2Chronicles:6:17 @ And now, O LORD God of Israel, let Your word come true, which You have spoken to Your servant David.

nkjv@2Chronicles:6:19 @ Yet regard the prayer of Your servant and his supplication, O LORD my God, and listen to the cry and the prayer which Your servant is praying before You:

nkjv@2Chronicles:6:41 @ "Now therefore, Arise, O LORD God, to Your resting place, You and the ark of Your strength. Let Your priests, O LORD God, be clothed with salvation, And let Your saints rejoice in goodness.

nkjv@2Chronicles:7:1 @ When Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the temple.

nkjv@2Chronicles:7:2 @ And the priests could not enter the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD's house.

nkjv@2Chronicles:7:3 @ When all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the LORD on the temple, they bowed their faces to the ground on the pavement, and worshiped and praised the LORD, saying: "For He is good, For His mercy endures forever."

nkjv@2Chronicles:7:4 @ Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:7:6 @ And the priests attended to their services; the Levites also with instruments of the music of the LORD, which King David had made to praise the LORD, saying, "For His mercy endures forever," whenever David offered praise by their ministry. The priests sounded trumpets opposite them, while all Israel stood.

nkjv@2Chronicles:7:7 @ Furthermore Solomon consecrated the middle of the court that was in front of the house of the LORD; for there he offered burnt offerings and the fat of the peace offerings, because the bronze altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt offerings, the grain offerings, and the fat.

nkjv@2Chronicles:7:10 @ On the twenty-third day of the seventh month he sent the people away to their tents, joyful and glad of heart for the good that the LORD had done for David, for Solomon, and for His people Israel.

nkjv@2Chronicles:7:11 @ Thus Solomon finished the house of the LORD and the king's house; and Solomon successfully accomplished all that came into his heart to make in the house of the LORD and in his own house.

nkjv@2Chronicles:7:12 @ Then the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him: "I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice.

nkjv@2Chronicles:7:22 @ Then they will answer, "Because they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and embraced other gods, and worshiped them and served them; therefore He has brought all this calamity on them."'

nkjv@2Chronicles:8:1 @ It came to pass at the end of twenty years, when Solomon had built the house of the LORD and his own house,

nkjv@2Chronicles:8:11 @ Now Solomon brought the daughter of Pharaoh up from the City of David to the house he had built for her, for he said, "My wife shall not dwell in the house of David king of Israel, because the places to which the ark of the LORD has come are holy."

nkjv@2Chronicles:8:12 @ Then Solomon offered burnt offerings to the LORD on the altar of the LORD which he had built before the vestibule,

nkjv@2Chronicles:9:8 @ Blessed be the LORD your God, who delighted in you, setting you on His throne to be king for the LORD your God! Because your God has loved Israel, to establish them forever, therefore He made you king over them, to do justice and righteousness."

nkjv@2Chronicles:9:11 @ And the king made walkways of the algum wood for the house of the LORD and for the king's house, also harps and stringed instruments for singers; and there were none such as these seen before in the land of Judah.

nkjv@2Chronicles:10:15 @ So the king did not listen to the people; for the turn of events was from God, that the LORD might fulfill His word, which He had spoken by the hand of Ahijah the Shilonite to Jeroboam the son of Nebat.

nkjv@2Chronicles:11:2 @ But the word of the LORD came to Shemaiah the man of God, saying,

nkjv@2Chronicles:11:4 @ "Thus says the LORD: "You shall not go up or fight against your brethren! Let every man return to his house, for this thing is from Me."

nkjv@2Chronicles:11:14 @ For the Levites left their common-lands and their possessions and came to Judah and Jerusalem, for Jeroboam and his sons had rejected them from serving as priests to the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:11:16 @ And after the Levites left, those from all the tribes of Israel, such as set their heart to seek the LORD God of Israel, came to Jerusalem to sacrifice to the LORD God of their fathers.

nkjv@2Chronicles:12:1 @ Now it came to pass, when Rehoboam had established the kingdom and had strengthened himself, that he forsook the law of the LORD, and all Israel along with him.

nkjv@2Chronicles:12:2 @ And it happened in the fifth year of King Rehoboam that Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, because they had transgressed against the LORD,

nkjv@2Chronicles:12:5 @ Then Shemaiah the prophet came to Rehoboam and the leaders of Judah, who were gathered together in Jerusalem because of Shishak, and said to them, "Thus says the LORD: "You have forsaken Me, and therefore I also have left you in the hand of Shishak."'

nkjv@2Chronicles:12:6 @ So the leaders of Israel and the king humbled themselves; and they said, "The LORD is righteous."

nkjv@2Chronicles:12:7 @ Now when the LORD saw that they humbled themselves, the word of the LORD came to Shemaiah, saying, "They have humbled themselves; therefore I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some deliverance. My wrath shall not be poured out on Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak.

nkjv@2Chronicles:12:9 @ So Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, and took away the treasures of the house of the LORD and the treasures of the king's house; he took everything. He also carried away the gold shields which Solomon had made.

nkjv@2Chronicles:12:11 @ And whenever the king entered the house of the LORD, the guard would go and bring them out; then they would take them back into the guardroom.

nkjv@2Chronicles:12:12 @ When he humbled himself, the wrath of the LORD turned from him, so as not to destroy him completely; and things also went well in Judah.

nkjv@2Chronicles:12:13 @ Thus King Rehoboam strengthened himself in Jerusalem and reigned. Now Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he became king; and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the LORD had chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, to put His name there. His mother's name was Naamah, an Ammonitess.

nkjv@2Chronicles:12:14 @ And he did evil, because he did not prepare his heart to seek the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:13:5 @ Should you not know that the LORD God of Israel gave the dominion over Israel to David forever, to him and his sons, by a covenant of salt?

nkjv@2Chronicles:13:6 @ Yet Jeroboam the son of Nebat, the servant of Solomon the son of David, rose up and rebelled against his lord.

nkjv@2Chronicles:13:8 @ And now you think to withstand the kingdom of the LORD, which is in the hand of the sons of David; and you are a great multitude, and with you are the gold calves which Jeroboam made for you as gods.

nkjv@2Chronicles:13:9 @ Have you not cast out the priests of the LORD, the sons of Aaron, and the Levites, and made for yourselves priests, like the peoples of other lands, so that whoever comes to consecrate himself with a young bull and seven rams may be a priest of things that are not gods?

nkjv@2Chronicles:13:10 @ But as for us, the LORD is our God, and we have not forsaken Him; and the priests who minister to the LORD are the sons of Aaron, and the Levites attend to their duties.

nkjv@2Chronicles:13:11 @ And they burn to the LORD every morning and every evening burnt sacrifices and sweet incense; they also set the showbread in order on the pure gold table, and the lampstand of gold with its lamps to burn every evening; for we keep the command of the LORD our God, but you have forsaken Him.

nkjv@2Chronicles:13:12 @ Now look, God Himself is with us as our head, and His priests with sounding trumpets to sound the alarm against you. O children of Israel, do not fight against the LORD God of your fathers, for you shall not prosper!"

nkjv@2Chronicles:13:14 @ And when Judah looked around, to their surprise the battle line was at both front and rear; and they cried out to the LORD, and the priests sounded the trumpets.

nkjv@2Chronicles:13:18 @ Thus the children of Israel were subdued at that time; and the children of Judah prevailed, because they relied on the LORD God of their fathers.

nkjv@2Chronicles:13:20 @ So Jeroboam did not recover strength again in the days of Abijah; and the LORD struck him, and he died.

nkjv@2Chronicles:14:2 @ Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the LORD his God,

nkjv@2Chronicles:14:4 @ He commanded Judah to seek the LORD God of their fathers, and to observe the law and the commandment.

nkjv@2Chronicles:14:6 @ And he built fortified cities in Judah, for the land had rest; he had no war in those years, because the LORD had given him rest.

nkjv@2Chronicles:14:7 @ Therefore he said to Judah, "Let us build these cities and make walls around them, and towers, gates, and bars, while the land is yet before us, because we have sought the LORD our God; we have sought Him, and He has given us rest on every side." So they built and prospered.

nkjv@2Chronicles:14:11 @ And Asa cried out to the LORD his God, and said, "LORD, it is nothing for You to help, whether with many or with those who have no power; help us, O LORD our God, for we rest on You, and in Your name we go against this multitude. O LORD, You are our God; do not let man prevail against You!"

nkjv@2Chronicles:14:12 @ So the LORD struck the Ethiopians before Asa and Judah, and the Ethiopians fled.

nkjv@2Chronicles:14:13 @ And Asa and the people who were with him pursued them to Gerar. So the Ethiopians were overthrown, and they could not recover, for they were broken before the LORD and His army. And they carried away very much spoil.

nkjv@2Chronicles:14:14 @ Then they defeated all the cities around Gerar, for the fear of the LORD came upon them; and they plundered all the cities, for there was exceedingly much spoil in them.

nkjv@2Chronicles:15:2 @ And he went out to meet Asa, and said to him: "Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin. The LORD is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you.

nkjv@2Chronicles:15:8 @ And when Asa heard these words and the prophecy of Oded the prophet, he took courage, and removed the abominable idols from all the land of Judah and Benjamin and from the cities which he had taken in the mountains of Ephraim; and he restored the altar of the LORD that was before the vestibule of the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:15:9 @ Then he gathered all Judah and Benjamin, and those who dwelt with them from Ephraim, Manasseh, and Simeon, for they came over to him in great numbers from Israel when they saw that the LORD his God was with him.

nkjv@2Chronicles:15:11 @ And they offered to the LORD at that time seven hundred bulls and seven thousand sheep from the spoil they had brought.

nkjv@2Chronicles:15:12 @ Then they entered into a covenant to seek the LORD God of their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul;

nkjv@2Chronicles:15:13 @ and whoever would not seek the LORD God of Israel was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.

nkjv@2Chronicles:15:15 @ And all Judah rejoiced at the oath, for they had sworn with all their heart and sought Him with all their soul; and He was found by them, and the LORD gave them rest all around.

nkjv@2Chronicles:16:2 @ Then Asa brought silver and gold from the treasuries of the house of the LORD and of the king's house, and sent to Ben-Hadad king of Syria, who dwelt in Damascus, saying,

nkjv@2Chronicles:18:23 @ Then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near and struck Micaiah on the cheek, and said, "Which way did the spirit from the LORD go from me to speak to you?"

nkjv@2Chronicles:18:27 @ But Micaiah said, "If you ever return in peace, the LORD has not spoken by me." And he said, "Take heed, all you people!"

nkjv@2Chronicles:18:31 @ So it was, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, "It is the king of Israel!" Therefore they surrounded him to attack; but Jehoshaphat cried out, and the LORD helped him, and God diverted them from him.

nkjv@2Chronicles:19:2 @ And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to King Jehoshaphat, "Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD? Therefore the wrath of the LORD is upon you.

nkjv@2Chronicles:19:4 @ So Jehoshaphat dwelt at Jerusalem; and he went out again among the people from Beersheba to the mountains of Ephraim, and brought them back to the LORD God of their fathers.

nkjv@2Chronicles:19:6 @ and said to the judges, "Take heed to what you are doing, for you do not judge for man but for the LORD, who is with you in the judgment.

nkjv@2Chronicles:19:7 @ Now therefore, let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take care and do it, for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, no partiality, nor taking of bribes."

nkjv@2Chronicles:19:8 @ Moreover in Jerusalem, for the judgment of the LORD and for controversies, Jehoshaphat appointed some of the Levites and priests, and some of the chief fathers of Israel, when they returned to Jerusalem.

nkjv@2Chronicles:19:9 @ And he commanded them, saying, "Thus you shall act in the fear of the LORD, faithfully and with a loyal heart:

nkjv@2Chronicles:19:10 @ Whatever case comes to you from your brethren who dwell in their cities, whether of bloodshed or offenses against law or commandment, against statutes or ordinances, you shall warn them, lest they trespass against the LORD and wrath come upon you and your brethren. Do this, and you will not be guilty.

nkjv@2Chronicles:19:11 @ And take notice: 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 will be officials before you. Behave courageously, and the LORD will be with the good."

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:3 @ And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:4 @ So Judah gathered together to ask help from the LORD; and from all the cities of Judah they came to seek the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:5 @ Then Jehoshaphat stood in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the LORD, before the new court,

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:6 @ and said: "O LORD God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You?

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:13 @ Now all Judah, with their little ones, their wives, and their children, stood before the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:14 @ Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, in the midst of the assembly.

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:15 @ And he said, "Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the LORD to you: "Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God's.

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:17 @ You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!' Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the LORD is with you."

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:18 @ And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem bowed before the LORD, worshiping the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:19 @ Then the Levites of the children of the Kohathites and of the children of the Korahites stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with voices loud and high.

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:20 @ So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, "Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper."

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:21 @ And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the LORD, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: "Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever."

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:22 @ Now when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated.

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:26 @ And on the fourth day they assembled in the Valley of Berachah, for there they blessed the LORD; therefore the name of that place was called The Valley of Berachah until this day.

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:27 @ Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, with Jehoshaphat in front of them, to go back to Jerusalem with joy, for the LORD had made them rejoice over their enemies.

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:28 @ So they came to Jerusalem, with stringed instruments and harps and trumpets, to the house of the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:29 @ And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries when they heard that the LORD had fought against the enemies of Israel.

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:32 @ And he walked in the way of his father Asa, and did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:20:37 @ But Eliezer the son of Dodavah of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, "Because you have allied yourself with Ahaziah, the LORD has destroyed your works." Then the ships were wrecked, so that they were not able to go to Tarshish.

nkjv@2Chronicles:21:6 @ And he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, just as the house of Ahab had done, for he had the daughter of Ahab as a wife; and he did evil in the sight of the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:21:7 @ Yet the LORD would not destroy the house of David, because of the covenant that He had made with David, and since He had promised to give a lamp to him and to his sons forever.

nkjv@2Chronicles:21:10 @ Thus Edom has been in revolt against Judah's authority to this day. At that time Libnah revolted against his rule, because he had forsaken the LORD God of his fathers.

nkjv@2Chronicles:21:12 @ And a letter came to him from Elijah the prophet, saying, 4 Thus says the LORD God of your father David: 4 Because you have not walked in the ways of Jehoshaphat your father, or in the ways of Asa king of Judah,

nkjv@2Chronicles:21:14 @ behold, the LORD will strike your people with a serious affliction--your children, your wives, and all your possessions;

nkjv@2Chronicles:21:16 @ Moreover the LORD stirred up against Jehoram the spirit of the Philistines and the Arabians who were near the Ethiopians.

nkjv@2Chronicles:21:18 @ After all this the LORD struck him in his intestines with an incurable disease.

nkjv@2Chronicles:22:4 @ Therefore he did evil in the sight of the LORD, like the house of Ahab; for they were his counselors after the death of his father, to his destruction.

nkjv@2Chronicles:22:7 @ His going to Joram was God's occasion for Ahaziah's downfall; for when he arrived, he went out with Jehoram against Jehu the son of Nimshi, whom the LORD had anointed to cut off the house of Ahab.

nkjv@2Chronicles:22:9 @ Then he searched for Ahaziah; and they caught him (he was hiding in Samaria), and brought him to Jehu. When they had killed him, they buried him, "because," they said, "he is the son of Jehoshaphat, who sought the LORD with all his heart." So the house of Ahaziah had no one to assume power over the kingdom.

nkjv@2Chronicles:23:3 @ Then all the assembly made a covenant with the king in the house of God. And he said to them, "Behold, the king's son shall reign, as the LORD has said of the sons of David.

nkjv@2Chronicles:23:5 @ one-third shall be at the king's house; and one-third at the Gate of the Foundation. All the people shall be in the courts of the house of the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:23:6 @ But let no one come into the house of the LORD except the priests and those of the Levites who serve. They may go in, for they are holy; but all the people shall keep the watch of the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:23:12 @ Now when Athaliah heard the noise of the people running and praising the king, she came to the people in the temple of the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:23:14 @ And Jehoiada the priest brought out the captains of hundreds who were set over the army, and said to them, "Take her outside under guard, and slay with the sword whoever follows her." For the priest had said, "Do not kill her in the house of the LORD."

nkjv@2Chronicles:23:16 @ Then Jehoiada made a covenant between himself, the people, and the king, that they should be the LORD's people.

nkjv@2Chronicles:23:18 @ Also Jehoiada appointed the oversight of the house of the LORD to the hand of the priests, the Levites, whom David had assigned in the house of the LORD, to offer the burnt offerings of the LORD, as it is written in the Law of Moses, with rejoicing and with singing, as it was established by David.

nkjv@2Chronicles:23:19 @ And he set the gatekeepers at the gates of the house of the LORD, so that no one who was in any way unclean should enter.

nkjv@2Chronicles:23:20 @ Then he took the captains of hundreds, the nobles, the governors of the people, and all the people of the land, and brought the king down from the house of the LORD; and they went through the Upper Gate to the king's house, and set the king on the throne of the kingdom.

nkjv@2Chronicles:24:2 @ Joash did what was right in the sight of the LORD all the days of Jehoiada the priest.

nkjv@2Chronicles:24:4 @ Now it happened after this that Joash set his heart on repairing the house of the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:24:6 @ So the king called Jehoiada the chief priest, and said to him, "Why have you not required the Levites to bring in from Judah and from Jerusalem the collection, according to the commandment of Moses the servant of the LORD and of the assembly of Israel, for the tabernacle of witness?"

nkjv@2Chronicles:24:7 @ For the sons of Athaliah, that wicked woman, had broken into the house of God, and had also presented all the dedicated things of the house of the LORD to the Baals.

nkjv@2Chronicles:24:8 @ Then at the king's command they made a chest, and set it outside at the gate of the house of the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:24:9 @ And they made a proclamation throughout Judah and Jerusalem to bring to the LORD the collection that Moses the servant of God had imposed on Israel in the wilderness.

nkjv@2Chronicles:24:12 @ The king and Jehoiada gave it to those who did the work of the service of the house of the LORD; and they hired masons and carpenters to repair the house of the LORD, and also those who worked in iron and bronze to restore the house of the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:24:14 @ When they had finished, they brought the rest of the money before the king and Jehoiada; they made from it articles for the house of the LORD, articles for serving and offering, spoons and vessels of gold and silver. And they offered burnt offerings in the house of the LORD continually all the days of Jehoiada.

nkjv@2Chronicles:24:18 @ Therefore they left the house of the LORD God of their fathers, and served wooden images and idols; and wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem because of their trespass.

nkjv@2Chronicles:24:19 @ Yet He sent prophets to them, to bring them back to the LORD; and they testified against them, but they would not listen.

nkjv@2Chronicles:24:20 @ Then the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest, who stood above the people, and said to them, "Thus says God: "Why do you transgress the commandments of the LORD, so that you cannot prosper? Because you have forsaken the LORD, He also has forsaken you."'

nkjv@2Chronicles:24:21 @ So they conspired against him, and at the command of the king they stoned him with stones in the court of the house of the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:24:22 @ Thus Joash the king did not remember the kindness which Jehoiada his father had done to him, but killed his son; and as he died, he said, "The LORD look on it, and repay!"

nkjv@2Chronicles:24:24 @ For the army of the Syrians came with a small company of men; but the LORD delivered a very great army into their hand, because they had forsaken the LORD God of their fathers. So they executed judgment against Joash.

nkjv@2Chronicles:25:2 @ And he did what was right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a loyal heart.

nkjv@2Chronicles:25:4 @ However he did not execute their children, but did as it is written in the Law in the Book of Moses, where the LORD commanded, saying, "The fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor shall the children be put to death for their fathers; but a person shall die for his own sin."

nkjv@2Chronicles:25:7 @ But a man of God came to him, saying, "O king, do not let the army of Israel go with you, for the LORD is not with Israel--not with any of the children of Ephraim.

nkjv@2Chronicles:25:9 @ Then Amaziah said to the man of God, "But what shall we do about the hundred talents which I have given to the troops of Israel?" And the man of God answered, "The LORD is able to give you much more than this."

nkjv@2Chronicles:25:15 @ Therefore the anger of the LORD was aroused against Amaziah, and He sent him a prophet who said to him, "Why have you sought the gods of the people, which could not rescue their own people from your hand?"

nkjv@2Chronicles:25:27 @ After the time that Amaziah turned away from following the LORD, they made a conspiracy against him in Jerusalem, and he fled to Lachish; but they sent after him to Lachish and killed him there.

nkjv@2Chronicles:26:4 @ And he did what was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Amaziah had done.

nkjv@2Chronicles:26:5 @ He sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God; and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him prosper.

nkjv@2Chronicles:26:16 @ But when he was strong his heart was lifted up, to his destruction, for he transgressed against the LORD his God by entering the temple of the LORD to burn incense on the altar of incense.

nkjv@2Chronicles:26:17 @ So Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him were eighty priests of the LORD--valiant men.

nkjv@2Chronicles:26:18 @ And they withstood King Uzziah, and said to him, "It is not for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to the LORD, but for the priests, the sons of Aaron, who are consecrated to burn incense. Get out of the sanctuary, for you have trespassed! You shall have no honor from the LORD God."

nkjv@2Chronicles:26:19 @ Then Uzziah became furious; and he had a censer in his hand to burn incense. And while he was angry with the priests, leprosy broke out on his forehead, before the priests in the house of the LORD, beside the incense altar.

nkjv@2Chronicles:26:20 @ And Azariah the chief priest and all the priests looked at him, and there, on his forehead, he was leprous; so they thrust him out of that place. Indeed he also hurried to get out, because the LORD had struck him.

nkjv@2Chronicles:26:21 @ King Uzziah was a leper until the day of his death. He dwelt in an isolated house, because he was a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the LORD. Then Jotham his son was over the king's house, judging the people of the land.

nkjv@2Chronicles:27:2 @ And he did what was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Uzziah had done (although he did not enter the temple of the LORD). But still the people acted corruptly.

nkjv@2Chronicles:27:3 @ He built the Upper Gate of the house of the LORD, and he built extensively on the wall of Ophel.

nkjv@2Chronicles:27:6 @ So Jotham became mighty, because he prepared his ways before the LORD his God.

nkjv@2Chronicles:28:1 @ Ahaz was twenty years old when he became king, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem; and he did not do what was right in the sight of the LORD, as his father David had done.

nkjv@2Chronicles:28:3 @ He burned incense in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, and burned his children in the fire, according to the abominations of the nations whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel.

nkjv@2Chronicles:28:5 @ Therefore the LORD his God delivered him into the hand of the king of Syria. They defeated him, and carried away a great multitude of them as captives, and brought them to Damascus. Then he was also delivered into the hand of the king of Israel, who defeated him with a great slaughter.

nkjv@2Chronicles:28:6 @ For Pekah the son of Remaliah killed one hundred and twenty thousand in Judah in one day, all valiant men, because they had forsaken the LORD God of their fathers.

nkjv@2Chronicles:28:9 @ But a prophet of the LORD was there, whose name was Oded; and he went out before the army that came to Samaria, and said to them: "Look, because the LORD God of your fathers was angry with Judah, He has delivered them into your hand; but you have killed them in a rage that reaches up to heaven.

nkjv@2Chronicles:28:10 @ And now you propose to force the children of Judah and Jerusalem to be your male and female slaves; but are you not also guilty before the LORD your God?

nkjv@2Chronicles:28:11 @ Now hear me, therefore, and return the captives, whom you have taken captive from your brethren, for the fierce wrath of the LORD is upon you."

nkjv@2Chronicles:28:13 @ and said to them, "You shall not bring the captives here, for we already have offended the LORD. You intend to add to our sins and to our guilt; for our guilt is great, and there is fierce wrath against Israel."

nkjv@2Chronicles:28:19 @ For the LORD brought Judah low because of Ahaz king of Israel, for he had encouraged moral decline in Judah and had been continually unfaithful to the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:28:21 @ For Ahaz took part of the treasures from the house of the LORD, from the house of the king, and from the leaders, and he gave it to the king of Assyria; but he did not help him.

nkjv@2Chronicles:28:22 @ Now in the time of his distress King Ahaz became increasingly unfaithful to the LORD. This is that King Ahaz.

nkjv@2Chronicles:28:24 @ So Ahaz gathered the articles of the house of God, cut in pieces the articles of the house of God, shut up the doors of the house of the LORD, and made for himself altars in every corner of Jerusalem.

nkjv@2Chronicles:28:25 @ And in every single city of Judah he made high places to burn incense to other gods, and provoked to anger the LORD God of his fathers.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:2 @ And he did what was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father David had done.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:3 @ In the first year of his reign, in the first month, he opened the doors of the house of the LORD and repaired them.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:5 @ and said to them: "Hear me, Levites! Now sanctify yourselves, sanctify the house of the LORD God of your fathers, and carry out the rubbish from the holy place.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:6 @ For our fathers have trespassed and done evil in the eyes of the LORD our God; they have forsaken Him, have turned their faces away from the dwelling place of the LORD, and turned their backs on Him.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:8 @ Therefore the wrath of the LORD fell upon Judah and Jerusalem, and He has given them up to trouble, to desolation, and to jeering, as you see with your eyes.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:16 @ Then the priests went into the inner part of the house of the LORD to cleanse it, and brought out all the debris that they found in the temple of the LORD to the court of the house of the LORD. And the Levites took it out and carried it to the Brook Kidron.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:17 @ Now they began to sanctify on the first day of the first month, and on the eighth day of the month they came to the vestibule of the LORD. So they sanctified the house of the LORD in eight days, and on the sixteenth day of the first month they finished.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:18 @ Then they went in to King Hezekiah and said, "We have cleansed all the house of the LORD, the altar of burnt offerings with all its articles, and the table of the showbread with all its articles.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:19 @ Moreover all the articles which King Ahaz in his reign had cast aside in his transgression we have prepared and sanctified; and there they are, before the altar of the LORD."

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:21 @ And they brought seven bulls, seven rams, seven lambs, and seven male goats for a sin offering for the kingdom, for the sanctuary, and for Judah. Then he commanded the priests, the sons of Aaron, to offer them on the altar of the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:25 @ And he stationed the Levites in the house of the LORD with cymbals, with stringed instruments, and with harps, according to the commandment of David, of Gad the king's seer, and of Nathan the prophet; for thus was the commandment of the LORD by His prophets.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:27 @ Then Hezekiah commanded them to offer the burnt offering on the altar. And when the burnt offering began, the song of the LORD also began, with the trumpets and with the instruments of David king of Israel.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:30 @ Moreover King Hezekiah and the leaders commanded the Levites to sing praise to the LORD with the words of David and of Asaph the seer. So they sang praises with gladness, and they bowed their heads and worshiped.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:31 @ Then Hezekiah answered and said, "Now that you have consecrated yourselves to the LORD, come near, and bring sacrifices and thank offerings into the house of the LORD." So the assembly brought in sacrifices and thank offerings, and as many as were of a willing heart brought burnt offerings.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:32 @ And the number of the burnt offerings which the assembly brought was seventy bulls, one hundred rams, and two hundred lambs; all these were for a burnt offering to the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:29:35 @ Also the burnt offerings were in abundance, with the fat of the peace offerings and with the drink offerings for every burnt offering. So the service of the house of the LORD was set in order.

nkjv@2Chronicles:30:1 @ And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and also wrote letters to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should come to the house of the LORD at Jerusalem, to keep the Passover to the LORD God of Israel.

nkjv@2Chronicles:30:5 @ So they resolved to make a proclamation throughout all Israel, from Beersheba to Dan, that they should come to keep the Passover to the LORD God of Israel at Jerusalem, since they had not done it for a long time in the prescribed manner.

nkjv@2Chronicles:30:15 @ Then they slaughtered the Passover lambs on the fourteenth day of the second month. The priests and the Levites were ashamed, and sanctified themselves, and brought the burnt offerings to the house of the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:30:17 @ For there were many in the assembly who had not sanctified themselves; therefore the Levites had charge of the slaughter of the Passover lambs for everyone who was not clean, to sanctify them to the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:30:18 @ For a multitude of the people, many from Ephraim, Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun, had not cleansed themselves, yet they ate the Passover contrary to what was written. But Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, "May the good LORD provide atonement for everyone

nkjv@2Chronicles:30:22 @ And Hezekiah gave encouragement to all the Levites who taught the good knowledge of the LORD; and they ate throughout the feast seven days, offering peace offerings and making confession to the LORD God of their fathers.

nkjv@2Chronicles:32:21 @ Then the LORD sent an angel who cut down every mighty man of valor, leader, and captain in the camp of the king of Assyria. So he returned shamefaced to his own land. And when he had gone into the temple of his god, some of his own offspring struck him down with the sword there.

nkjv@2Chronicles:32:22 @ Thus the LORD saved Hezekiah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennacherib the king of Assyria, and from the hand of all others, and guided them on every side.

nkjv@2Chronicles:32:23 @ And many brought gifts to the LORD at Jerusalem, and presents to Hezekiah king of Judah, so that he was exalted in the sight of all nations thereafter.

nkjv@2Chronicles:32:24 @ In those days Hezekiah was sick and near death, and he prayed to the LORD; and He spoke to him and gave him a sign.

nkjv@2Chronicles:32:26 @ Then Hezekiah humbled himself for the pride of his heart, he and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the wrath of the LORD did not come upon them in the days of Hezekiah.

nkjv@2Chronicles:33:2 @ But he did evil in the sight of the LORD, according to the abominations of the nations whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel.

nkjv@2Chronicles:33:6 @ Also he caused his sons to pass through the fire in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom; he practiced soothsaying, used witchcraft and sorcery, and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke Him to anger.

nkjv@2Chronicles:33:9 @ So Manasseh seduced Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to do more evil than the nations whom the LORD had destroyed before the children of Israel.

nkjv@2Chronicles:33:10 @ And the LORD spoke to Manasseh and his people, but they would not listen.

nkjv@2Chronicles:33:11 @ Therefore the LORD brought upon them the captains of the army of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh with hooks, bound him with bronze fetters, and carried him off to Babylon.

nkjv@2Chronicles:33:12 @ Now when he was in affliction, he implored the LORD his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers,

nkjv@2Chronicles:33:13 @ and prayed to Him; and He received his entreaty, heard his supplication, and brought him back to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD was God.

nkjv@2Chronicles:33:15 @ He took away the foreign gods and the idol from the house of the LORD, and all the altars that he had built in the mount of the house of the LORD and in Jerusalem; and he cast them out of the city.

nkjv@2Chronicles:33:16 @ He also repaired the altar of the LORD, sacrificed peace offerings and thank offerings on it, and commanded Judah to serve the LORD God of Israel.

nkjv@2Chronicles:33:17 @ Nevertheless the people still sacrificed on the high places, but only to the LORD their God.

nkjv@2Chronicles:33:18 @ Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, his prayer to his God, and the words of the seers who spoke to him in the name of the LORD God of Israel, indeed they are written in the book of the kings of Israel.

nkjv@2Chronicles:33:22 @ But he did evil in the sight of the LORD, as his father Manasseh had done; for Amon sacrificed to all the carved images which his father Manasseh had made, and served them.

nkjv@2Chronicles:33:23 @ And he did not humble himself before the LORD, as his father Manasseh had humbled himself; but Amon trespassed more and more.

nkjv@2Chronicles:34:2 @ And he did what was right in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the ways of his father David; he did not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.

nkjv@2Chronicles:34:8 @ In the eighteenth year of his reign, when he had purged the land and the temple, he sent Shaphan the son of Azaliah, Maaseiah the governor of the city, and Joah the son of Joahaz the recorder, to repair the house of the LORD his God.

nkjv@2Chronicles:34:33 @ Thus Josiah removed all the abominations from all the country that belonged to the children of Israel, and made all who were present in Israel diligently serve the LORD their God. All his days they did not depart from following the LORD God of their fathers.

nkjv@2Chronicles:35:1 @ Now Josiah kept a Passover to the LORD in Jerusalem, and they slaughtered the Passover lambs on the fourteenth day of the first month.

nkjv@2Chronicles:35:2 @ And he set the priests in their duties and encouraged them for the service of the house of the LORD.

nkjv@2Chronicles:35:3 @ Then he said to the Levites who taught all Israel, who were holy to the LORD: "Put the holy ark in the house which Solomon the son of David, king of Israel, built. It shall no longer be a burden on your shoulders. Now serve the LORD your God and His people Israel.
