@Hosea:1:1 @The word of the LORD that came to Hosea the son of Beeri, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel.
nkjv@Hosea:1:2 @When the LORD began to speak by Hosea, the LORD said to Hosea: "Go, take yourself a wife of harlotry And children of harlotry, For the land has committed great harlotry By departing from the LORD."
nkjv@Hosea:1:4 @Then the LORD said to him: "Call his name Jezreel, For in a little while I will avenge the bloodshed of Jezreel on the house of Jehu, And bring an end to the kingdom of the house of Israel.
nkjv@Hosea:1:7 @Yet I will have mercy on the house of Judah, Will save them by the LORD their God, And will not save them by bow, Nor by sword or battle, By horses or horsemen."
nkjv@Hosea:2:13 @I will punish her For the days of the Baals to which she burned incense. She decked herself with her earrings and jewelry, And went after her lovers; But Me she forgot," says the LORD.
nkjv@Hosea:2:16 @"And it shall be, in that day," Says the LORD, "That you will call Me "My Husband,' And no longer call Me "My Master,'
nkjv@Hosea:2:20 @I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness, And you shall know the LORD.
nkjv@Hosea:2:21 @"It shall come to pass in that day That I will answer," says the LORD; "I will answer the heavens, And they shall answer the earth.
nkjv@Hosea:3:1 @Then the LORD said to me, "Go again, love a woman who is loved by a lover and is committing adultery, just like the love of the LORD for the children of Israel, who look to other gods and love the raisin cakes of the pagans."
nkjv@Hosea:3:5 @Afterward the children of Israel shall return and seek the LORD their God and David their king. They shall fear the LORD and His goodness in the latter days.
nkjv@Hosea:4:1 @Hear the word of the LORD, You children of Israel, For the LORD brings a charge against the inhabitants of the land: "There is no truth or mercy Or knowledge of God in the land.
nkjv@Hosea:4:10 @For they shall eat, but not have enough; They shall commit harlotry, but not increase; Because they have ceased obeying the LORD.
nkjv@Hosea:4:15 @"Though you, Israel, play the harlot, Let not Judah offend. Do not come up to Gilgal, Nor go up to Beth Aven, Nor swear an oath, saying, "As the LORD lives'--
nkjv@Hosea:4:16 @"For Israel is stubborn Like a stubborn calf; Now the LORD will let them forage Like a lamb in open country.
nkjv@Hosea:5:4 @"They do not direct their deeds Toward turning to their God, For the spirit of harlotry is in their midst, And they do not know the LORD.
nkjv@Hosea:5:6 @"With their flocks and herds They shall go to seek the LORD, But they will not find Him; He has withdrawn Himself from them.
nkjv@Hosea:5:7 @They have dealt treacherously with the LORD, For they have begotten pagan children. Now a New Moon shall devour them and their heritage.
nkjv@Hosea:6:1 @Come, and let us return to the LORD; For He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up.
nkjv@Hosea:6:3 @Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, Like the latter and former rain to the earth.
nkjv@Hosea:7:10 @And the pride of Israel testifies to his face, But they do not return to the LORD their God, Nor seek Him for all this.
nkjv@Hosea:8:1 @"Set the trumpet to your mouth! He shall come like an eagle against the house of the LORD, Because they have transgressed My covenant And rebelled against My law.
nkjv@Hosea:8:13 @For the sacrifices of My offerings they sacrifice flesh and eat it, But the LORD does not accept them. Now He will remember their iniquity and punish their sins. They shall return to Egypt.
nkjv@Hosea:9:3 @They shall not dwell in the LORD's land, But Ephraim shall return to Egypt, And shall eat unclean things in Assyria.
nkjv@Hosea:9:4 @They shall not offer wine offerings to the LORD, Nor shall their sacrifices be pleasing to Him. It shall be like bread of mourners to them; All who eat it shall be defiled. For their bread shall be for their own life; It shall not come into the house of the LORD.
nkjv@Hosea:9:5 @What will you do in the appointed day, And in the day of the feast of the LORD?
nkjv@Hosea:9:14 @Give them, O LORD-- What will You give? Give them a miscarrying womb And dry breasts!
nkjv@Hosea:10:3 @For now they say, "We have no king, Because we did not fear the LORD. And as for a king, what would he do for us?"
nkjv@Hosea:10:12 @Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the LORD, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.
nkjv@Hosea:11:10 @"They shall walk after the LORD. He will roar like a lion. When He roars, Then His sons shall come trembling from the west;
nkjv@Hosea:11:11 @They shall come trembling like a bird from Egypt, Like a dove from the land of Assyria. And I will let them dwell in their houses," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Hosea:12:2 @"The LORD also brings a charge against Judah, And will punish Jacob according to his ways; According to his deeds He will recompense him.
nkjv@Hosea:12:5 @That is, the LORD God of hosts. The LORD is His memorable name.
nkjv@Hosea:12:9 @"But I am the LORD your God, Ever since the land of Egypt; I will again make you dwell in tents, As in the days of the appointed feast.
nkjv@Hosea:12:13 @By a prophet the LORD brought Israel out of Egypt, And by a prophet he was preserved.
nkjv@Hosea:12:14 @Ephraim provoked Him to anger most bitterly; Therefore his Lord will leave the guilt of his bloodshed upon him, And return his reproach upon him.
nkjv@Hosea:13:4 @"Yet I am the LORD your God Ever since the land of Egypt, And you shall know no God but Me; For there is no savior besides Me.
nkjv@Hosea:13:15 @Though he is fruitful among his brethren, An east wind shall come; The wind of the LORD shall come up from the wilderness. Then his spring shall become dry, And his fountain shall be dried up. He shall plunder the treasury of every desirable prize.
nkjv@Hosea:14:1 @O Israel, return to the LORD your God, For you have stumbled because of your iniquity;
nkjv@Hosea:14:2 @Take words with you, And return to the LORD. Say to Him, "Take away all iniquity; Receive us graciously, For we will offer the sacrifices of our lips.
nkjv@Hosea:14:9 @Who is wise? Let him understand these things. Who is prudent? Let him know them. For the ways of the LORD are right; The righteous walk in them, But transgressors stumble in them.
nkjv@Joel:1:1 @The word of the LORD that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.
nkjv@Joel:1:9 @The grain offering and the drink offering Have been cut off from the house of the LORD; The priests mourn, who minister to the LORD.
nkjv@Joel:1:14 @Consecrate a fast, Call a sacred assembly; Gather the elders And all the inhabitants of the land Into the house of the LORD your God, And cry out to the LORD.
nkjv@Joel:1:15 @Alas for the day! For the day of the LORD is at hand; It shall come as destruction from the Almighty.
nkjv@Joel:1:19 @O LORD, to You I cry out; For fire has devoured the open pastures, And a flame has burned all the trees of the field.
nkjv@Joel:2:1 @Blow the trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; For the day of the LORD is coming, For it is at hand:
nkjv@Joel:2:11 @The LORD gives voice before His army, For His camp is very great; For strong is the One who executes His word. For the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; Who can endure it?
nkjv@Joel:2:12 @"Now, therefore," says the LORD, "Turn to Me with all your heart, With fasting, with weeping, and with mourning."
nkjv@Joel:2:13 @So rend your heart, and not your garments; Return to the LORD your God, For He is gracious and merciful, Slow to anger, and of great kindness; And He relents from doing harm.
nkjv@Joel:2:14 @Who knows if He will turn and relent, And leave a blessing behind Him-- A grain offering and a drink offering For the LORD your God?
nkjv@Joel:2:17 @Let the priests, who minister to the LORD, Weep between the porch and the altar; Let them say, "Spare Your people, O LORD, And do not give Your heritage to reproach, That the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, "Where is their God?"'
nkjv@Joel:2:18 @Then the LORD will be zealous for His land, And pity His people.
nkjv@Joel:2:19 @The LORD will answer and say to His people, "Behold, I will send you grain and new wine and oil, And you will be satisfied by them; I will no longer make you a reproach among the nations.
nkjv@Joel:2:21 @Fear not, O land; Be glad and rejoice, For the LORD has done marvelous things!
nkjv@Joel:2:23 @Be glad then, you children of Zion, And rejoice in the LORD your God; For He has given you the former rain faithfully, And He will cause the rain to come down for you-- The former rain, And the latter rain in the first month.
nkjv@Joel:2:26 @You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, And praise the name of the LORD your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you; And My people shall never be put to shame.
nkjv@Joel:2:27 @Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel: I am the LORD your God And there is no other. My people shall never be put to shame.
nkjv@Joel:2:31 @The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD.
nkjv@Joel:2:32 @And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As the LORD has said, Among the remnant whom the LORD calls.
nkjv@Joel:3:8 @I will sell your sons and your daughters Into the hand of the people of Judah, And they will sell them to the Sabeans, To a people far off; For the LORD has spoken."
nkjv@Joel:3:11 @Assemble and come, all you nations, And gather together all around. Cause Your mighty ones to go down there, O LORD.
nkjv@Joel:3:14 @Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
nkjv@Joel:3:16 @The LORD also will roar from Zion, And utter His voice from Jerusalem; The heavens and earth will shake; But the LORD will be a shelter for His people, And the strength of the children of Israel.
nkjv@Joel:3:17 @"So you shall know that I am the LORD your God, Dwelling in Zion My holy mountain. Then Jerusalem shall be holy, And no aliens shall ever pass through her again."
nkjv@Joel:3:18 @And it will come to pass in that day That the mountains shall drip with new wine, The hills shall flow with milk, And all the brooks of Judah shall be flooded with water; A fountain shall flow from the house of the LORD And water the Valley of Acacias.
nkjv@Joel:3:21 @For I will acquit them of the guilt of bloodshed, whom I had not acquitted; For the LORD dwells in Zion."
nkjv@Amos:1:2 @And he said: "The LORD roars from Zion, And utters His voice from Jerusalem; The pastures of the shepherds mourn, And the top of Carmel withers."
nkjv@Amos:1:3 @Thus says the LORD: "For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because they have threshed Gilead with implements of iron.
nkjv@Amos:1:5 @I will also break the gate bar of Damascus, And cut off the inhabitant from the Valley of Aven, And the one who holds the scepter from Beth Eden. The people of Syria shall go captive to Kir," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:1:6 @Thus says the LORD: "For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because they took captive the whole captivity To deliver them up to Edom.
nkjv@Amos:1:8 @I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, And the one who holds the scepter from Ashkelon; I will turn My hand against Ekron, And the remnant of the Philistines shall perish," Says the Lord GOD.
nkjv@Amos:1:9 @Thus says the LORD: "For three transgressions of Tyre, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because they delivered up the whole captivity to Edom, And did not remember the covenant of brotherhood.
nkjv@Amos:1:11 @Thus says the LORD: "For three transgressions of Edom, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because he pursued his brother with the sword, And cast off all pity; His anger tore perpetually, And he kept his wrath forever.
nkjv@Amos:1:13 @Thus says the LORD: "For three transgressions of the people of Ammon, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because they ripped open the women with child in Gilead, That they might enlarge their territory.
nkjv@Amos:1:15 @Their king shall go into captivity, He and his princes together," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:2:1 @Thus says the LORD: "For three transgressions of Moab, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because he burned the bones of the king of Edom to lime.
nkjv@Amos:2:3 @And I will cut off the judge from its midst, And slay all its princes with him," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:2:4 @Thus says the LORD: "For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because they have despised the law of the LORD, And have not kept His commandments. Their lies lead them astray, Lies which their fathers followed.
nkjv@Amos:2:6 @Thus says the LORD: "For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because they sell the righteous for silver, And the poor for a pair of sandals.
nkjv@Amos:2:11 @I raised up some of your sons as prophets, And some of your young men as Nazirites. Is it not so, O you children of Israel?" Says the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:2:16 @The most courageous men of might Shall flee naked in that day," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:3:1 @Hear this word that the LORD has spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying:
nkjv@Amos:3:6 @If a trumpet is blown in a city, will not the people be afraid? If there is calamity in a city, will not the LORD have done it?
nkjv@Amos:3:7 @Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
nkjv@Amos:3:8 @A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can but prophesy?
nkjv@Amos:3:10 @For they do not know to do right,' Says the LORD, "Who store up violence and robbery in their palaces."'
nkjv@Amos:3:11 @Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: "An adversary shall be all around the land; He shall sap your strength from you, And your palaces shall be plundered."
nkjv@Amos:3:12 @Thus says the LORD: "As a shepherd takes from the mouth of a lion Two legs or a piece of an ear, So shall the children of Israel be taken out Who dwell in Samaria-- In the corner of a bed and on the edge of a couch!
nkjv@Amos:3:13 @Hear and testify against the house of Jacob," Says the Lord GOD, the God of hosts,
nkjv@Amos:3:15 @I will destroy the winter house along with the summer house; The houses of ivory shall perish, And the great houses shall have an end," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:4:2 @The Lord GOD has sworn by His holiness: "Behold, the days shall come upon you When He will take you away with fishhooks, And your posterity with fishhooks.
nkjv@Amos:4:3 @You will go out through broken walls, Each one straight ahead of her, And you will be cast into Harmon," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:4:5 @Offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven, Proclaim and announce the freewill offerings; For this you love, You children of Israel!" Says the Lord GOD.
nkjv@Amos:4:6 @"Also I gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities. And lack of bread in all your places; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:4:8 @So two or three cities wandered to another city to drink water, But they were not satisfied; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:4:9 @"I blasted you with blight and mildew. When your gardens increased, Your vineyards, Your fig trees, And your olive trees, The locust devoured them; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:4:10 @"I sent among you a plague after the manner of Egypt; Your young men I killed with a sword, Along with your captive horses; I made the stench of your camps come up into your nostrils; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:4:11 @"I overthrew some of you, As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, And you were like a firebrand plucked from the burning; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:4:13 @For behold, He who forms mountains, And creates the wind, Who declares to man what his thought is, And makes the morning darkness, Who treads the high places of the earth-- The LORD God of hosts is His name.
nkjv@Amos:5:3 @For thus says the Lord GOD: "The city that goes out by a thousand Shall have a hundred left, And that which goes out by a hundred Shall have ten left to the house of Israel."
nkjv@Amos:5:4 @For thus says the LORD to the house of Israel: "Seek Me and live;
nkjv@Amos:5:6 @Seek the LORD and live, Lest He break out like fire in the house of Joseph, And devour it, With no one to quench it in Bethel--
nkjv@Amos:5:8 @He made the Pleiades and Orion; He turns the shadow of death into morning And makes the day dark as night; He calls for the waters of the sea And pours them out on the face of the earth; The LORD is His name.
nkjv@Amos:5:14 @Seek good and not evil, That you may live; So the LORD God of hosts will be with you, As you have spoken.
nkjv@Amos:5:15 @Hate evil, love good; Establish justice in the gate. It may be that the LORD God of hosts Will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.
nkjv@Amos:5:16 @Therefore the LORD God of hosts, the Lord, says this: "There shall be wailing in all streets, And they shall say in all the highways, "Alas! Alas!' They shall call the farmer to mourning, And skillful lamenters to wailing.
nkjv@Amos:5:17 @In all vineyards there shall be wailing, For I will pass through you," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:5:18 @Woe to you who desire the day of the LORD! For what good is the day of the LORD to you? It will be darkness, and not light.
nkjv@Amos:5:20 @Is not the day of the LORD darkness, and not light? Is it not very dark, with no brightness in it?
nkjv@Amos:5:27 @Therefore I will send you into captivity beyond Damascus," Says the LORD, whose name is the God of hosts.
nkjv@Amos:6:8 @The Lord GOD has sworn by Himself, The LORD God of hosts says: "I abhor the pride of Jacob, And hate his palaces; Therefore I will deliver up the city And all that is in it."
nkjv@Amos:6:10 @And when a relative of the dead, with one who will burn the bodies, picks up the bodies to take them out of the house, he will say to one inside the house, "Are there any more with you?" Then someone will say, "None." And he will say, "Hold your tongue! For we dare not mention the name of the LORD."
nkjv@Amos:6:11 @For behold, the LORD gives a command: He will break the great house into bits, And the little house into pieces.
nkjv@Amos:6:14 @"But, behold, I will raise up a nation against you, O house of Israel," Says the LORD God of hosts; "And they will afflict you from the entrance of Hamath To the Valley of the Arabah."
nkjv@Amos:7:1 @Thus the Lord GOD showed me: Behold, He formed locust swarms at the beginning of the late crop; indeed it was the late crop after the king's mowings.
nkjv@Amos:7:2 @And so it was, when they had finished eating the grass of the land, that I said: "O Lord GOD, forgive, I pray! Oh, that Jacob may stand, For he is small!"
nkjv@Amos:7:3 @So the LORD relented concerning this. "It shall not be," said the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:7:4 @Thus the Lord GOD showed me: Behold, the Lord GOD called for conflict by fire, and it consumed the great deep and devoured the territory.
nkjv@Amos:7:5 @Then I said: "O Lord GOD, cease, I pray! Oh, that Jacob may stand, For he is small!"
nkjv@Amos:7:6 @So the LORD relented concerning this. "This also shall not be," said the Lord GOD.
nkjv@Amos:7:7 @Thus He showed me: Behold, the Lord stood on a wall made with a plumb line, with a plumb line in His hand.
nkjv@Amos:7:8 @And the LORD said to me, "Amos, what do you see?" And I said, "A plumb line." Then the Lord said: "Behold, I am setting a plumb line In the midst of My people Israel; I will not pass by them anymore.
nkjv@Amos:7:15 @Then the LORD took me as I followed the flock, And the LORD said to me, "Go, prophesy to My people Israel.'
nkjv@Amos:7:16 @Now therefore, hear the word of the LORD: You say, "Do not prophesy against Israel, And do not spout against the house of Isaac.'
nkjv@Amos:7:17 @"Therefore thus says the LORD: "Your wife shall be a harlot in the city; Your sons and daughters shall fall by the sword; Your land shall be divided by survey line; You shall die in a defiled land; And Israel shall surely be led away captive From his own land."'
nkjv@Amos:8:1 @Thus the Lord GOD showed me: Behold, a basket of summer fruit.
nkjv@Amos:8:2 @And He said, "Amos, what do you see?" So I said, "A basket of summer fruit." Then the LORD said to me: "The end has come upon My people Israel; I will not pass by them anymore.
nkjv@Amos:8:3 @And the songs of the temple Shall be wailing in that day," Says the Lord GOD-- "Many dead bodies everywhere, They shall be thrown out in silence."
nkjv@Amos:8:7 @The LORD has sworn by the pride of Jacob: "Surely I will never forget any of their works.
nkjv@Amos:8:9 @"And it shall come to pass in that day," says the Lord GOD, "That I will make the sun go down at noon, And I will darken the earth in broad daylight;
nkjv@Amos:8:11 @"Behold, the days are coming," says the Lord GOD, "That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:8:12 @They shall wander from sea to sea, And from north to east; They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the LORD, But shall not find it.
nkjv@Amos:9:1 @I saw the Lord standing by the altar, and He said: "Strike the doorposts, that the thresholds may shake, And break them on the heads of them all. I will slay the last of them with the sword. He who flees from them shall not get away, And he who escapes from them shall not be delivered.
nkjv@Amos:9:5 @The Lord GOD of hosts, He who touches the earth and it melts, And all who dwell there mourn; All of it shall swell like the River, And subside like the River of Egypt.
nkjv@Amos:9:6 @He who builds His layers in the sky, And has founded His strata in the earth; Who calls for the waters of the sea, And pours them out on the face of the earth-- The LORD is His name.
nkjv@Amos:9:7 @"Are you not like the people of Ethiopia to Me, O children of Israel?" says the LORD. "Did I not bring up Israel from the land of Egypt, The Philistines from Caphtor, And the Syrians from Kir?
nkjv@Amos:9:8 @"Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are on the sinful kingdom, And I will destroy it from the face of the earth; Yet I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Amos:9:12 @That they may possess the remnant of Edom, And all the Gentiles who are called by My name," Says the LORD who does this thing.
nkjv@Amos:9:13 @"Behold, the days are coming," says the LORD, "When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, And the treader of grapes him who sows seed; The mountains shall drip with sweet wine, And all the hills shall flow with it.
nkjv@Amos:9:15 @I will plant them in their land, And no longer shall they be pulled up From the land I have given them," Says the LORD your God.
nkjv@Obadiah:1:1 @The vision of Obadiah. Thus says the Lord GOD concerning Edom (We have heard a report from the LORD, And a messenger has been sent among the nations, saying, "Arise, and let us rise up against her for battle"):
nkjv@Obadiah:1:4 @Though you ascend as high as the eagle, And though you set your nest among the stars, From there I will bring you down," says the LORD.
nkjv@Obadiah:1:8 @"Will I not in that day," says the LORD, "Even destroy the wise men from Edom, And understanding from the mountains of Esau?
nkjv@Obadiah:1:15 @"For the day of the LORD upon all the nations is near; As you have done, it shall be done to you; Your reprisal shall return upon your own head.
nkjv@Obadiah:1:18 @The house of Jacob shall be a fire, And the house of Joseph a flame; But the house of Esau shall be stubble; They shall kindle them and devour them, And no survivor shall remain of the house of Esau," For the LORD has spoken.
nkjv@Obadiah:1:21 @Then saviors shall come to Mount Zion To judge the mountains of Esau, And the kingdom shall be the LORD's.
nkjv@Jonah:1:1 @Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying,
nkjv@Jonah:1:3 @But Jonah arose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD. He went down to Joppa, and found a ship going to Tarshish; so he paid the fare, and went down into it, to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.
nkjv@Jonah:1:4 @But the LORD sent out a great wind on the sea, and there was a mighty tempest on the sea, so that the ship was about to be broken up.
nkjv@Jonah:1:9 @So he said to them, "I am a Hebrew; and I fear the LORD, the God of heaven, who made the sea and the dry land."
nkjv@Jonah:1:10 @Then the men were exceedingly afraid, and said to him, "Why have you done this?" For the men knew that he fled from the presence of the LORD, because he had told them.
nkjv@Jonah:1:14 @Therefore they cried out to the LORD and said, "We pray, O LORD, please do not let us perish for this man's life, and do not charge us with innocent blood; for You, O LORD, have done as it pleased You."
nkjv@Jonah:1:16 @Then the men feared the LORD exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice to the LORD and took vows.
nkjv@Jonah:1:17 @Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.
nkjv@Jonah:2:1 @Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the fish's belly.
nkjv@Jonah:2:2 @And he said: "I cried out to the LORD because of my affliction, And He answered me. "Out of the belly of Sheol I cried, And You heard my voice.
nkjv@Jonah:2:6 @I went down to the moorings of the mountains; The earth with its bars closed behind me forever; Yet You have brought up my life from the pit, O LORD, my God.
nkjv@Jonah:2:7 @"When my soul fainted within me, I remembered the LORD; And my prayer went up to You, Into Your holy temple.
nkjv@Jonah:2:9 @But I will sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD."
nkjv@Jonah:2:10 @So the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
nkjv@Jonah:3:1 @Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the second time, saying,
nkjv@Jonah:3:3 @So Jonah arose and went to Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly great city, a three-day journey in extent.
nkjv@Jonah:4:2 @So he prayed to the LORD, and said, "Ah, LORD, was not this what I said when I was still in my country? Therefore I fled previously to Tarshish; for I know that You are a gracious and merciful God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, One who relents from doing harm.
nkjv@Jonah:4:3 @Therefore now, O LORD, please take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live!"
nkjv@Jonah:4:4 @Then the LORD said, "Is it right for you to be angry?"
nkjv@Jonah:4:6 @And the LORD God prepared a plant and made it come up over Jonah, that it might be shade for his head to deliver him from his misery. So Jonah was very grateful for the plant.
nkjv@Jonah:4:10 @But the LORD said, "You have had pity on the plant for which you have not labored, nor made it grow, which came up in a night and perished in a night.
nkjv@Micah:1:1 @The word of the LORD that came to Micah of Moresheth in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem.
nkjv@Micah:1:2 @Hear, all you peoples! Listen, O earth, and all that is in it! Let the Lord GOD be a witness against you, The Lord from His holy temple.
nkjv@Micah:1:3 @For behold, the LORD is coming out of His place; He will come down And tread on the high places of the earth.
nkjv@Micah:1:12 @For the inhabitant of Maroth pined for good, But disaster came down from the LORD To the gate of Jerusalem.
nkjv@Micah:2:3 @Therefore thus says the LORD: "Behold, against this family I am devising disaster, From which you cannot remove your necks; Nor shall you walk haughtily, For this is an evil time.
nkjv@Micah:2:5 @Therefore you will have no one to determine boundaries by lot In the assembly of the LORD.
nkjv@Micah:2:7 @You who are named the house of Jacob: "Is the Spirit of the LORD restricted? Are these His doings? Do not My words do good To him who walks uprightly?
nkjv@Micah:2:13 @The one who breaks open will come up before them; They will break out, Pass through the gate, And go out by it; Their king will pass before them, With the LORD at their head."
nkjv@Micah:3:4 @Then they will cry to the LORD, But He will not hear them; He will even hide His face from them at that time, Because they have been evil in their deeds.
nkjv@Micah:3:5 @Thus says the LORD concerning the prophets Who make my people stray; Who chant "Peace" While they chew with their teeth, But who prepare war against him Who puts nothing into their mouths:
nkjv@Micah:3:8 @But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the LORD, And of justice and might, To declare to Jacob his transgression And to Israel his sin.
nkjv@Micah:3:11 @Her heads judge for a bribe, Her priests teach for pay, And her prophets divine for money. Yet they lean on the LORD, and say, "Is not the LORD among us? No harm can come upon us."
nkjv@Micah:4:1 @Now it shall come to pass in the latter days That the mountain of the LORD's house Shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills; And peoples shall flow to it.
nkjv@Micah:4:2 @Many nations shall come and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion the law shall go forth, And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
nkjv@Micah:4:4 @But everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree, And no one shall make them afraid; For the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken.
nkjv@Micah:4:5 @For all people walk each in the name of his god, But we will walk in the name of the LORD our God Forever and ever.
nkjv@Micah:4:6 @"In that day," says the LORD, "I will assemble the lame, I will gather the outcast And those whom I have afflicted;
nkjv@Micah:4:7 @I will make the lame a remnant, And the outcast a strong nation; So the LORD will reign over them in Mount Zion From now on, even forever.
nkjv@Micah:4:10 @Be in pain, and labor to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, Like a woman in birth pangs. For now you shall go forth from the city, You shall dwell in the field, And to Babylon you shall go. There you shall be delivered; There the LORD will redeem you From the hand of your enemies.
nkjv@Micah:4:12 @But they do not know the thoughts of the LORD, Nor do they understand His counsel; For He will gather them like sheaves to the threshing floor.
nkjv@Micah:4:13 @"Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion; For I will make your horn iron, And I will make your hooves bronze; You shall beat in pieces many peoples; I will consecrate their gain to the LORD, And their substance to the Lord of the whole earth."
nkjv@Micah:5:4 @And He shall stand and feed His flock In the strength of the LORD, In the majesty of the name of the LORD His God; And they shall abide, For now He shall be great To the ends of the earth;
nkjv@Micah:5:7 @Then the remnant of Jacob Shall be in the midst of many peoples, Like dew from the LORD, Like showers on the grass, That tarry for no man Nor wait for the sons of men.
nkjv@Micah:5:10 @"And it shall be in that day," says the LORD, "That I will cut off your horses from your midst And destroy your chariots.
nkjv@Micah:6:1 @Hear now what the LORD says: "Arise, plead your case before the mountains, And let the hills hear your voice.
nkjv@Micah:6:2 @Hear, O you mountains, the LORD's complaint, And you strong foundations of the earth; For the LORD has a complaint against His people, And He will contend with Israel.
nkjv@Micah:6:5 @O My people, remember now What Balak king of Moab counseled, And what Balaam the son of Beor answered him, From Acacia Grove to Gilgal, That you may know the righteousness of the LORD."
nkjv@Micah:6:6 @With what shall I come before the LORD, And bow myself before the High God? Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings, With calves a year old?
nkjv@Micah:6:7 @Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, Ten thousand rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
nkjv@Micah:6:8 @He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?
nkjv@Micah:6:9 @The LORD's voice cries to the city-- Wisdom shall see Your name: "Hear the rod! Who has appointed it?
nkjv@Micah:7:7 @Therefore I will look to the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation; My God will hear me.
nkjv@Micah:7:8 @Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; When I fall, I will arise; When I sit in darkness, The LORD will be a light to me.
nkjv@Micah:7:9 @I will bear the indignation of the LORD, Because I have sinned against Him, Until He pleads my case And executes justice for me. He will bring me forth to the light; I will see His righteousness.
nkjv@Micah:7:10 @Then she who is my enemy will see, And shame will cover her who said to me, "Where is the LORD your God?" My eyes will see her; Now she will be trampled down Like mud in the streets.
nkjv@Micah:7:17 @They shall lick the dust like a serpent; They shall crawl from their holes like snakes of the earth. They shall be afraid of the LORD our God, And shall fear because of You.
nkjv@Nahum:1:2 @God is jealous, and the LORD avenges; The LORD avenges and is furious. The LORD will take vengeance on His adversaries, And He reserves wrath for His enemies;
nkjv@Nahum:1:3 @The LORD is slow to anger and great in power, And will not at all acquit the wicked. The LORD has His way In the whirlwind and in the storm, And the clouds are the dust of His feet.
nkjv@Nahum:1:7 @The LORD is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble; And He knows those who trust in Him.
nkjv@Nahum:1:9 @What do you conspire against the LORD? He will make an utter end of it. Affliction will not rise up a second time.
nkjv@Nahum:1:11 @From you comes forth one Who plots evil against the LORD, A wicked counselor.
nkjv@Nahum:1:12 @Thus says the LORD: "Though they are safe, and likewise many, Yet in this manner they will be cut down When he passes through. Though I have afflicted you, I will afflict you no more;
nkjv@Nahum:1:14 @The LORD has given a command concerning you: "Your name shall be perpetuated no longer. Out of the house of your gods I will cut off the carved image and the molded image. I will dig your grave, For you are vile."
nkjv@Nahum:2:2 @For the LORD will restore the excellence of Jacob Like the excellence of Israel, For the emptiers have emptied them out And ruined their vine branches.
nkjv@Nahum:2:13 @"Behold, I am against you," says the LORD of hosts, "I will burn your chariots in smoke, and the sword shall devour your young lions; I will cut off your prey from the earth, and the voice of your messengers shall be heard no more."
nkjv@Nahum:3:5 @"Behold, I am against you," says the LORD of hosts; "I will lift your skirts over your face, I will show the nations your nakedness, And the kingdoms your shame.
nkjv@Habakkuk:1:2 @O LORD, how long shall I cry, And You will not hear? Even cry out to You, "Violence!" And You will not save.
nkjv@Habakkuk:1:12 @Are You not from everlasting, O LORD my God, my Holy One? We shall not die. O LORD, You have appointed them for judgment; O Rock, You have marked them for correction.
nkjv@Habakkuk:2:2 @Then the LORD answered me and said: "Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.
nkjv@Habakkuk:2:13 @Behold, is it not of the LORD of hosts That the peoples labor to feed the fire, And nations weary themselves in vain?
nkjv@Habakkuk:2:14 @For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, As the waters cover the sea.
nkjv@Habakkuk:2:16 @You are filled with shame instead of glory. You also--drink! And be exposed as uncircumcised! The cup of the LORD's right hand will be turned against you, And utter shame will be on your glory.
nkjv@Habakkuk:2:20 @"But the LORD is in His holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before Him."
nkjv@Habakkuk:3:2 @O LORD, I have heard Your speech and was afraid; O LORD, revive Your work in the midst of the years! In the midst of the years make it known; In wrath remember mercy.
nkjv@Habakkuk:3:8 @O LORD, were You displeased with the rivers, Was Your anger against the rivers, Was Your wrath against the sea, That You rode on Your horses, Your chariots of salvation?
nkjv@Habakkuk:3:18 @Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.
nkjv@Habakkuk:3:19 @The LORD God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer's feet, And He will make me walk on my high hills. To the Chief Musician. With my stringed instruments.
nkjv@Zephaniah:1:1 @The word of the LORD which came to Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hezekiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.
nkjv@Zephaniah:1:2 @"I will utterly consume everything From the face of the land," Says the LORD;
nkjv@Zephaniah:1:3 @"I will consume man and beast; I will consume the birds of the heavens, The fish of the sea, And the stumbling blocks along with the wicked. I will cut off man from the face of the land," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Zephaniah:1:5 @Those who worship the host of heaven on the housetops; Those who worship and swear oaths by the LORD, But who also swear by Milcom;
nkjv@Zephaniah:1:6 @Those who have turned back from following the LORD, And have not sought the LORD, nor inquired of Him."
nkjv@Zephaniah:1:7 @Be silent in the presence of the Lord GOD; For the day of the LORD is at hand, For the LORD has prepared a sacrifice; He has invited His guests.
nkjv@Zephaniah:1:8 @"And it shall be, In the day of the LORD's sacrifice, That I will punish the princes and the king's children, And all such as are clothed with foreign apparel.
nkjv@Zephaniah:1:10 @"And there shall be on that day," says the LORD, "The sound of a mournful cry from the Fish Gate, A wailing from the Second Quarter, And a loud crashing from the hills.
nkjv@Zephaniah:1:12 @"And it shall come to pass at that time That I will search Jerusalem with lamps, And punish the men Who are settled in complacency, Who say in their heart, "The LORD will not do good, Nor will He do evil.'
nkjv@Zephaniah:1:14 @The great day of the LORD is near; It is near and hastens quickly. The noise of the day of the LORD is bitter; There the mighty men shall cry out.
nkjv@Zephaniah:1:17 @"I will bring distress upon men, And they shall walk like blind men, Because they have sinned against the LORD; Their blood shall be poured out like dust, And their flesh like refuse."
nkjv@Zephaniah:1:18 @Neither their silver nor their gold Shall be able to deliver them In the day of the LORD's wrath; But the whole land shall be devoured By the fire of His jealousy, For He will make speedy riddance Of all those who dwell in the land.
nkjv@Zephaniah:2:2 @Before the decree is issued, Or the day passes like chaff, Before the LORD's fierce anger comes upon you, Before the day of the LORD's anger comes upon you!
nkjv@Zephaniah:2:3 @Seek the LORD, all you meek of the earth, Who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden In the day of the LORD's anger.
nkjv@Zephaniah:2:5 @Woe to the inhabitants of the seacoast, The nation of the Cherethites! The word of the LORD is against you, O Canaan, land of the Philistines: "I will destroy you; So there shall be no inhabitant."
nkjv@Zephaniah:2:7 @The coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; They shall feed their flocks there; In the houses of Ashkelon they shall lie down at evening. For the LORD their God will intervene for them, And return their captives.
nkjv@Zephaniah:2:9 @Therefore, as I live," Says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "Surely Moab shall be like Sodom, And the people of Ammon like Gomorrah-- Overrun with weeds and saltpits, And a perpetual desolation. The residue of My people shall plunder them, And the remnant of My people shall possess them."
nkjv@Zephaniah:2:10 @This they shall have for their pride, Because they have reproached and made arrogant threats Against the people of the LORD of hosts.
nkjv@Zephaniah:2:11 @The LORD will be awesome to them, For He will reduce to nothing all the gods of the earth; People shall worship Him, Each one from his place, Indeed all the shores of the nations.
nkjv@Zephaniah:3:2 @She has not obeyed His voice, She has not received correction; She has not trusted in the LORD, She has not drawn near to her God.
nkjv@Zephaniah:3:5 @The LORD is righteous in her midst, He will do no unrighteousness. Every morning He brings His justice to light; He never fails, But the unjust knows no shame.
nkjv@Zephaniah:3:8 @"Therefore wait for Me," says the LORD, "Until the day I rise up for plunder; My determination is to gather the nations To My assembly of kingdoms, To pour on them My indignation, All My fierce anger; All the earth shall be devoured With the fire of My jealousy.
nkjv@Zephaniah:3:9 @"For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, That they all may call on the name of the LORD, To serve Him with one accord.

nkjv@Zephaniah:3:20 @At that time I will bring you back, Even at the time I gather you; For I will give you fame and praise Among all the peoples of the earth, When I return your captives before your eyes," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Haggai:1:1 @In the second year of King Darius, in the sixth month, on the first day of the month, the word of the LORD came by Haggai the prophet to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, saying,
