nkjv@Hosea:4:4 @ "Now let no man contend, or rebuke another; For your people are like those who contend with the priest.

nkjv@Hosea:4:6 @ My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

nkjv@Hosea:4:9 @ And it shall be: like people, like priest. So I will punish them for their ways, And reward them for their deeds.

nkjv@Hosea:5:1 @ "Hear this, O priests! Take heed, O house of Israel! Give ear, O house of the king! For yours is the judgment, Because you have been a snare to Mizpah And a net spread on Tabor.

nkjv@Hosea:6:9 @ As bands of robbers lie in wait for a man, So the company of priests murder on the way to Shechem; Surely they commit lewdness.

nkjv@Hosea:10:5 @ The inhabitants of Samaria fear Because of the calf of Beth Aven. For its people mourn for it, And its priests shriek for it-- Because its glory has departed from it.

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:1:13 @ Gird yourselves and lament, you priests; Wail, you who minister before the altar; Come, lie all night in sackcloth, You who minister to my God; For the grain offering and the drink offering Are withheld from the house of 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@Amos:7:10 @ Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, "Amos has conspired against you in the midst of the house of Israel. The land is not able to bear all his words.

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@Zephaniah:1:4 @ "I will stretch out My hand against Judah, And against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem. I will cut off every trace of Baal from this place, The names of the idolatrous priests with the pagan priests--

nkjv@Zephaniah:3:4 @ Her prophets are insolent, treacherous people; Her priests have polluted the sanctuary, They have done violence to the law.

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,

nkjv@Haggai:1:12 @ Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of the LORD their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet, as the LORD their God had sent him; and the people feared the presence of the LORD.

nkjv@Haggai:1:14 @ So the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and worked on the house of the LORD of hosts, their God,

nkjv@Haggai:2:2 @ "Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and to the remnant of the people, saying:

nkjv@Haggai:2:4 @ Yet now be strong, Zerubbabel,' says the LORD; "and be strong, Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest; and be strong, all you people of the land,' says the LORD, "and work; for I am with you,' says the LORD of hosts.

nkjv@Haggai:2:11 @ "Thus says the LORD of hosts: "Now, ask the priests concerning the law, saying,

nkjv@Haggai:2:12 @ "If one carries holy meat in the fold of his garment, and with the edge he touches bread or stew, wine or oil, or any food, will it become holy?""' Then the priests answered and said, "No."

nkjv@Haggai:2:13 @ And Haggai said, "If one who is unclean because of a dead body touches any of these, will it be unclean?" So the priests answered and said, "It shall be unclean."

nkjv@Zechariah:3:1 @ Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to oppose him.

nkjv@Zechariah:3:8 @ "Hear, O Joshua, the high priest, You and your companions who sit before you, For they are a wondrous sign; For behold, I am bringing forth My Servant the BRANCH.

nkjv@Zechariah:6:11 @ Take the silver and gold, make an elaborate crown, and set it on the head of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest.

nkjv@Zechariah:6:13 @ Yes, He shall build the temple of the LORD. He shall bear the glory, And shall sit and rule on His throne; So He shall be a priest on His throne, And the counsel of peace shall be between them both."'

nkjv@Zechariah:7:3 @ and to ask the priests who were in the house of the LORD of hosts, and the prophets, saying, "Should I weep in the fifth month and fast as I have done for so many years?"

nkjv@Zechariah:7:5 @ "Say to all the people of the land, and to the priests: "When you fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh months during those seventy years, did you really fast for Me--for Me?

nkjv@Malachi:1:6 @ "A son honors his father, And a servant his master. If then I am the Father, Where is My honor? And if I am a Master, Where is My reverence? Says the LORD of hosts To you priests who despise My name. Yet you say, "In what way have we despised Your name?'

nkjv@Malachi:2:1 @ "And now, O priests, this commandment is for you.

nkjv@Malachi:2:7 @ "For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, And people should seek the law from his mouth; For he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.

nkjv@Hebrews:2:17 @ Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.

nkjv@Hebrews:3:1 @ Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus,

nkjv@Hebrews:4:14 @ Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.

nkjv@Hebrews:4:15 @ For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.

nkjv@Hebrews:5:1 @ For every high priest taken from among men is appointed for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins.

nkjv@Hebrews:5:5 @ So also Christ did not glorify Himself to become High Priest, but it was He who said to Him: "You are My Son, Today I have begotten You."

nkjv@Hebrews:5:6 @ As He also says in another place: "You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek";

nkjv@Hebrews:5:10 @ called by God as High Priest "according to the order of Melchizedek,"

nkjv@Hebrews:6:20 @ where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

nkjv@Hebrews:7:1 @ For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him,

nkjv@Hebrews:7:3 @ without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually.

nkjv@Hebrews:7:5 @ And indeed those who are of the sons of Levi, who receive the priesthood, have a commandment to receive tithes from the people according to the law, that is, from their brethren, though they have come from the loins of Abraham;

nkjv@Hebrews:7:11 @ Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another priest should rise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be called according to the order of Aaron?

nkjv@Hebrews:7:12 @ For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law.

nkjv@Hebrews:7:14 @ For it is evident that our Lord arose from Judah, of which tribe Moses spoke nothing concerning priesthood.

nkjv@Hebrews:7:15 @ And it is yet far more evident if, in the likeness of Melchizedek, there arises another priest

nkjv@Hebrews:7:17 @ For He testifies: "You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek."

nkjv@Hebrews:7:20 @ And inasmuch as He was not made priest without an oath

nkjv@Hebrews:7:21 @ (for they have become priests without an oath, but He with an oath by Him who said to Him: "The LORD has sworn And will not relent, "You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek"'),

nkjv@Hebrews:7:23 @ Also there were many priests, because they were prevented by death from continuing.

nkjv@Hebrews:7:24 @ But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood.

nkjv@Hebrews:7:26 @ For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens;

nkjv@Hebrews:7:27 @ who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people's, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.

nkjv@Hebrews:7:28 @ For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever.

nkjv@Hebrews:8:1 @ Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens,

nkjv@Hebrews:8:3 @ For every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices. Therefore it is necessary that this One also have something to offer.

nkjv@Hebrews:8:4 @ For if He were on earth, He would not be a priest, since there are priests who offer the gifts according to the law;

nkjv@Hebrews:9:6 @ Now when these things had been thus prepared, the priests always went into the first part of the tabernacle, performing the services.

nkjv@Hebrews:9:7 @ But into the second part the high priest went alone once a year, not without blood, which he offered for himself and for the people's sins committed in ignorance;

nkjv@Hebrews:9:11 @ But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.

nkjv@Hebrews:9:25 @ not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another--

nkjv@Hebrews:10:11 @ And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:21 @ and having a High Priest over the house of God,

nkjv@Hebrews:13:11 @ For the bodies of those animals, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned outside the camp.

nkjv@1Peter:2:5 @ you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

nkjv@1Peter:2:9 @ But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

nkjv@Revelation:1:6 @ and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

nkjv@Revelation:5:10 @ And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth."

nkjv@Revelation:20:6 @ Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
