nkjv@Malachi:3:14 @ You have said, "It is useless to serve God; What profit is it that we have kept His ordinance, And that we have walked as mourners Before the LORD of hosts?

nkjv@Malachi:3:16 @ Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, And the LORD listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the LORD And who meditate on His name.

nkjv@Romans:9:26 @ "And it shall come to pass in the place where it was said to them, "You are not My people,' There they shall be called sons of the living God."

nkjv@Romans:9:27 @ Isaiah also cries out concerning Israel: "Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, The remnant will be saved.

nkjv@Romans:9:29 @ And as Isaiah said before: "Unless the LORD of Sabaoth had left us a seed, We would have become like Sodom, And we would have been made like Gomorrah."

nkjv@Romans:9:30 @ What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness of faith;

nkjv@Romans:9:31 @ but Israel, pursuing the law of righteousness, has not attained to the law of righteousness.

nkjv@Romans:9:32 @ Why? Because they did not seek it by faith, but as it were, by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling stone.

nkjv@Romans:9:33 @ As it is written: "Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense, And whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame."

nkjv@Romans:10:3 @ For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God.

nkjv@Romans:10:4 @ For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

nkjv@Romans:10:5 @ For Moses writes about the righteousness which is of the law, "The man who does those things shall live by them."

nkjv@Romans:10:6 @ But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, "Do not say in your heart, "Who will ascend into heaven?"' (that is, to bring Christ down from above)

nkjv@Romans:10:8 @ But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith which we preach):

nkjv@Romans:10:13 @ For "whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved."

nkjv@Romans:10:14 @ How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?

nkjv@Romans:10:15 @ And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!"

nkjv@Romans:10:17 @ So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

nkjv@Romans:10:18 @ But I say, have they not heard? Yes indeed: "Their sound has gone out to all the earth, And their words to the ends of the world."

nkjv@Romans:11:1 @ I say then, has God cast away His people? Certainly not! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

nkjv@Romans:11:2 @ God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel, saying,

nkjv@Romans:11:5 @ Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

nkjv@Romans:11:6 @ And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work.

nkjv@Romans:11:8 @ Just as it is written: "God has given them a spirit of stupor, Eyes that they should not see And ears that they should not hear, To this very day."

nkjv@Romans:11:14 @ if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them.

nkjv@Romans:11:15 @ For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?

nkjv@Romans:11:17 @ And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree,

nkjv@Romans:11:19 @ You will say then, "Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in."

nkjv@Romans:11:20 @ Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear.

nkjv@Romans:11:22 @ Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off.

nkjv@Romans:11:24 @ For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, who are natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?

nkjv@Romans:11:25 @ For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.

nkjv@Romans:11:26 @ And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: "The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;

nkjv@Romans:11:28 @ Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers.

nkjv@Romans:11:29 @ For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.

nkjv@Romans:11:33 @ Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!

nkjv@Romans:11:34 @ "For who has known the mind of the LORD? Or who has become His counselor?"

nkjv@Romans:11:36 @ For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.

nkjv@Romans:12:1 @ I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

nkjv@Romans:12:2 @ And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

nkjv@Romans:12:3 @ For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.

nkjv@Romans:12:5 @ so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.

nkjv@Romans:12:13 @ distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.

nkjv@Romans:12:16 @ Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.

nkjv@Romans:12:17 @ Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.

nkjv@Romans:12:20 @ Therefore "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head."

nkjv@Romans:13:2 @ Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.

nkjv@Romans:13:3 @ For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same.

nkjv@Romans:13:5 @ Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience' sake.

nkjv@Romans:13:6 @ For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God's ministers attending continually to this very thing.

nkjv@Romans:13:10 @ Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

nkjv@Romans:13:11 @ And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.

nkjv@Romans:13:12 @ The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.

nkjv@Romans:14:7 @ For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself.

nkjv@Romans:14:9 @ For to this end Christ died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living.

nkjv@Romans:14:10 @ But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

nkjv@Romans:14:12 @ So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.

nkjv@Romans:14:14 @ I know and am convinced by the Lord Jesus that there is nothing unclean of itself; but to him who considers anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean.

nkjv@Romans:14:15 @ Yet if your brother is grieved because of your food, you are no longer walking in love. Do not destroy with your food the one for whom Christ died.

nkjv@Romans:14:16 @ Therefore do not let your good be spoken of as evil;

nkjv@Romans:14:17 @ for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

nkjv@Romans:14:20 @ Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All things indeed are pure, but it is evil for the man who eats with offense.

nkjv@Romans:14:21 @ It is good neither to eat meat nor drink wine nor do anything by which your brother stumbles or is offended or is made weak.

nkjv@Romans:15:1 @ We then who are strong ought to bear with the scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

nkjv@Romans:15:2 @ Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification.

nkjv@Romans:15:3 @ For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, "The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me."

nkjv@Romans:15:4 @ For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.

nkjv@Romans:15:5 @ Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus,

nkjv@Romans:15:6 @ that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

nkjv@Romans:15:7 @ Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God.

nkjv@Romans:15:8 @ Now I say that Jesus Christ has become a servant to the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made to the fathers,

nkjv@Romans:15:12 @ And again, Isaiah says: "There shall be a root of Jesse; And He who shall rise to reign over the Gentiles, In Him the Gentiles shall hope."

nkjv@Romans:15:13 @ Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

nkjv@Romans:15:14 @ Now I myself am confident concerning you, my brethren, that you also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.

nkjv@Romans:15:15 @ Nevertheless, brethren, I have written more boldly to you on some points, as reminding you, because of the grace given to me by God,

nkjv@Romans:15:16 @ that I might be a minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.

nkjv@Romans:15:18 @ For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ has not accomplished through me, in word and deed, to make the Gentiles obedient--

nkjv@Romans:15:19 @ in mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from Jerusalem and round about to Illyricum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.

nkjv@Romans:15:27 @ It pleased them indeed, and they are their debtors. For if the Gentiles have been partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister to them in material things.

nkjv@Romans:15:28 @ Therefore, when I have performed this and have sealed to them this fruit, I shall go by way of you to Spain.

nkjv@Romans:15:29 @ But I know that when I come to you, I shall come in the fullness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ.

nkjv@Romans:15:30 @ Now I beg you, brethren, through the Lord Jesus Christ, and through the love of the Spirit, that you strive together with me in prayers to God for me,

nkjv@Romans:15:32 @ that I may come to you with joy by the will of God, and may be refreshed together with you.

nkjv@Romans:15:33 @ Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.

nkjv@Romans:16:1 @ I commend to you Phoebe our sister, who is a servant of the church in Cenchrea,

nkjv@Romans:16:2 @ that you may receive her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the saints, and assist her in whatever business she has need of you; for indeed she has been a helper of many and of myself also.

nkjv@Romans:16:4 @ who risked their own necks for my life, to whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles.

nkjv@Romans:16:5 @ Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Greet my beloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia to Christ.

nkjv@Romans:16:7 @ Greet Andronicus and Junia, my countrymen and my fellow prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me.

nkjv@Romans:16:10 @ Greet Apelles, approved in Christ. Greet those who are of the household of Aristobulus.

nkjv@Romans:16:11 @ Greet Herodion, my countryman. Greet those who are of the household of Narcissus who are in the Lord.

nkjv@Romans:16:16 @ Greet one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ greet you.

nkjv@Romans:16:17 @ Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.

nkjv@Romans:16:18 @ For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.

nkjv@Romans:16:20 @ And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

nkjv@Romans:16:23 @ Gaius, my host and the host of the whole church, greets you. Erastus, the treasurer of the city, greets you, and Quartus, a brother.

nkjv@Romans:16:24 @ The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

nkjv@Romans:16:25 @ Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began

nkjv@Romans:16:26 @ but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith--

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:1 @ Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:2 @ To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all who in every place call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:4 @ I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given to you by Christ Jesus,

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:6 @ even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you,

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:7 @ so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ,

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:8 @ who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:9 @ God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:10 @ Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:11 @ For it has been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of Chloe's household, that there are contentions among you.

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:12 @ Now I say this, that each of you says, "I am of Paul," or "I am of Apollos," or "I am of Cephas," or "I am of Christ."

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:13 @ Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:14 @ I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius,

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:16 @ Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas. Besides, I do not know whether I baptized any other.

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:17 @ For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:18 @ For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:19 @ For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent."

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:20 @ Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:21 @ For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:24 @ but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:25 @ Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:27 @ But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:28 @ and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are,

nkjv@1Corinthians:1:30 @ But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God--and righteousness and sanctification and redemption--

nkjv@1Corinthians:2:1 @ And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:2:4 @ And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,

nkjv@1Corinthians:2:5 @ that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:2:6 @ However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.

nkjv@1Corinthians:2:7 @ But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory,

nkjv@1Corinthians:2:8 @ which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

nkjv@1Corinthians:2:9 @ But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."

nkjv@1Corinthians:2:10 @ But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:2:11 @ For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:2:12 @ Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:2:14 @ But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

nkjv@1Corinthians:2:16 @ For "who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ.

nkjv@1Corinthians:3:4 @ For when one says, "I am of Paul," and another, "I am of Apollos," are you not carnal?

nkjv@1Corinthians:3:10 @ According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it.

nkjv@1Corinthians:3:13 @ each one's work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one's work, of what sort it is.

nkjv@1Corinthians:3:16 @ Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

nkjv@1Corinthians:3:17 @ If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.

nkjv@1Corinthians:3:19 @ For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, "He catches the wise in their own craftiness";

nkjv@1Corinthians:3:20 @ and again, "The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile."

nkjv@1Corinthians:4:1 @ Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:4:4 @ For I know of nothing against myself, yet I am not justified by this; but He who judges me is the Lord.

nkjv@1Corinthians:4:5 @ Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one's praise will come from God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:4:6 @ Now these things, brethren, I have figuratively transferred to myself and Apollos for your sakes, that you may learn in us not to think beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up on behalf of one against the other.

nkjv@1Corinthians:4:13 @ being defamed, we entreat. We have been made as the filth of the world, the offscouring of all things until now.

nkjv@1Corinthians:4:17 @ For this reason I have sent Timothy to you, who is my beloved and faithful son in the Lord, who will remind you of my ways in Christ, as I teach everywhere in every church.

nkjv@1Corinthians:4:19 @ But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord wills, and I will know, not the word of those who are puffed up, but the power.

nkjv@1Corinthians:4:20 @ For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power.

nkjv@1Corinthians:4:21 @ What do you want? Shall I come to you with a rod, or in love and a spirit of gentleness?

nkjv@1Corinthians:5:4 @ In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, along with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,

nkjv@1Corinthians:5:5 @ deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

nkjv@1Corinthians:5:8 @ Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

nkjv@1Corinthians:5:10 @ Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world.

nkjv@1Corinthians:6:1 @ Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the saints?

nkjv@1Corinthians:6:9 @ Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites,

nkjv@1Corinthians:6:10 @ nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:6:11 @ And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:6:15 @ Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not!

nkjv@1Corinthians:6:19 @ Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

nkjv@1Corinthians:7:1 @ Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.

nkjv@1Corinthians:7:2 @ Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.

nkjv@1Corinthians:7:5 @ Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

nkjv@1Corinthians:7:19 @ Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but keeping the commandments of God is what matters.

nkjv@1Corinthians:7:23 @ You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men.

nkjv@1Corinthians:7:33 @ But he who is married cares about the things of the world--how he may please his wife.

nkjv@1Corinthians:7:34 @ There is a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world--how she may please her husband.

nkjv@1Corinthians:7:36 @ But if any man thinks he is behaving improperly toward his virgin, if she is past the flower of youth, and thus it must be, let him do what he wishes. He does not sin; let them marry.

nkjv@1Corinthians:7:40 @ But she is happier if she remains as she is, according to my judgment--and I think I also have the Spirit of God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:8:1 @ Now concerning things offered to idols: We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.

nkjv@1Corinthians:8:4 @ Therefore concerning the eating of things offered to idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no other God but one.

nkjv@1Corinthians:8:6 @ yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.

nkjv@1Corinthians:8:7 @ However, there is not in everyone that knowledge; for some, with consciousness of the idol, until now eat it as a thing offered to an idol; and their conscience, being weak, is defiled.

nkjv@1Corinthians:8:9 @ But beware lest somehow this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak.

nkjv@1Corinthians:8:10 @ For if anyone sees you who have knowledge eating in an idol's temple, will not the conscience of him who is weak be emboldened to eat those things offered to idols?

nkjv@1Corinthians:8:11 @ And because of your knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?

nkjv@1Corinthians:9:2 @ If I am not an apostle to others, yet doubtless I am to you. For you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord.

nkjv@1Corinthians:9:5 @ Do we have no right to take along a believing wife, as do also the other apostles, the brothers of the Lord, and Cephas?

nkjv@1Corinthians:9:7 @ Who ever goes to war at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its fruit? Or who tends a flock and does not drink of the milk of the flock?

nkjv@1Corinthians:9:9 @ For it is written in the law of Moses, "You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain." Is it oxen God is concerned about?

nkjv@1Corinthians:9:10 @ Or does He say it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written, that he who plows should plow in hope, and he who threshes in hope should be partaker of his hope.

nkjv@1Corinthians:9:12 @ If others are partakers of this right over you, are we not even more? Nevertheless we have not used this right, but endure all things lest we hinder the gospel of Christ.

nkjv@1Corinthians:9:13 @ Do you not know that those who minister the holy things eat of the things of the temple, and those who serve at the altar partake of the offerings of the altar?

nkjv@1Corinthians:9:15 @ But I have used none of these things, nor have I written these things that it should be done so to me; for it would be better for me to die than that anyone should make my boasting void.

nkjv@1Corinthians:9:16 @ For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!

nkjv@1Corinthians:9:18 @ What is my reward then? That when I preach the gospel, I may present the gospel of Christ without charge, that I may not abuse my authority in the gospel.

nkjv@1Corinthians:9:23 @ Now this I do for the gospel's sake, that I may be partaker of it with you.

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:4 @ and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:5 @ But with most of them God was not well pleased, for their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:7 @ And do not become idolaters as were some of them. As it is written, "The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play."

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:8 @ Nor let us commit sexual immorality, as some of them did, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell;

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:9 @ nor let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed by serpents;

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:10 @ nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer.

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:11 @ Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:13 @ No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:16 @ The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:17 @ For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread.

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:18 @ Observe Israel after the flesh: Are not those who eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar?

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:19 @ What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything?

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:21 @ You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord's table and of the table of demons.

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:27 @ If any of those who do not believe invites you to dinner, and you desire to go, eat whatever is set before you, asking no question for conscience' sake.

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:28 @ But if anyone says to you, "This was offered to idols," do not eat it for the sake of the one who told you, and for conscience' sake; for "the earth is the LORD's, and all its fullness."

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:29 @ "Conscience," I say, not your own, but that of the other. For why is my liberty judged by another man's conscience?

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:30 @ But if I partake with thanks, why am I evil spoken of for the food over which I give thanks?

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:31 @ Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:32 @ Give no offense, either to the Jews or to the Greeks or to the church of God,

nkjv@1Corinthians:10:33 @ just as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.

nkjv@1Corinthians:11:3 @ But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:11:7 @ For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man.

nkjv@1Corinthians:11:10 @ For this reason the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels.

nkjv@1Corinthians:11:11 @ Nevertheless, neither is man independent of woman, nor woman independent of man, in the Lord.

nkjv@1Corinthians:11:16 @ But if anyone seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, nor do the churches of God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:11:18 @ For first of all, when you come together as a church, I hear that there are divisions among you, and in part I believe it.

nkjv@1Corinthians:11:21 @ For in eating, each one takes his own supper ahead of others; and one is hungry and another is drunk.

nkjv@1Corinthians:11:22 @ What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God and shame those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you in this? I do not praise you.

nkjv@1Corinthians:11:24 @ and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, "Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me."

nkjv@1Corinthians:11:25 @ In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me."

nkjv@1Corinthians:11:26 @ For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death till He comes.

nkjv@1Corinthians:11:27 @ Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

nkjv@1Corinthians:11:28 @ But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup.

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:3 @ Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:4 @ There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:5 @ There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord.

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:6 @ And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:7 @ But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all:

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:8 @ for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:9 @ to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:10 @ to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:12 @ For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:15 @ If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body," is it therefore not of the body?

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:16 @ And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body," is it therefore not of the body?

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:18 @ But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased.

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:21 @ And the eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you"; nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you."

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:22 @ No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary.

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:23 @ And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty,

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:27 @ Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:28 @ And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:29 @ Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles?

nkjv@1Corinthians:12:30 @ Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?

nkjv@1Corinthians:13:1 @ Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.

nkjv@1Corinthians:13:2 @ And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

nkjv@1Corinthians:13:3 @ And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.

nkjv@1Corinthians:13:13 @ And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

nkjv@1Corinthians:14:6 @ But now, brethren, if I come to you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you unless I speak to you either by revelation, by knowledge, by prophesying, or by teaching?

nkjv@1Corinthians:14:10 @ There are, it may be, so many kinds of languages in the world, and none of them is without significance.

nkjv@1Corinthians:14:11 @ Therefore, if I do not know the meaning of the language, I shall be a foreigner to him who speaks, and he who speaks will be a foreigner to me.

nkjv@1Corinthians:14:12 @ Even so you, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, let it be for the edification of the church that you seek to excel.

nkjv@1Corinthians:14:16 @ Otherwise, if you bless with the spirit, how will he who occupies the place of the uninformed say "Amen" at your giving of thanks, since he does not understand what you say?

nkjv@1Corinthians:14:21 @ In the law it is written: "With men of other tongues and other lips I will speak to this people; And yet, for all that, they will not hear Me," says the Lord.

nkjv@1Corinthians:14:23 @ Therefore if the whole church comes together in one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those who are uninformed or unbelievers, will they not say that you are out of your mind?

nkjv@1Corinthians:14:25 @ And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you.

nkjv@1Corinthians:14:26 @ How is it then, brethren? Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.

nkjv@1Corinthians:14:32 @ And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.

nkjv@1Corinthians:14:33 @ For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.

nkjv@1Corinthians:14:36 @ Or did the word of God come originally from you? Or was it you only that it reached?

nkjv@1Corinthians:14:37 @ If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:3 @ For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:6 @ After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:8 @ Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:9 @ For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:10 @ But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:12 @ Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:13 @ But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:15 @ Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up--if in fact the dead do not rise.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:19 @ If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:20 @ But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:21 @ For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:32 @ If, in the manner of men, I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantage is it to me? If the dead do not rise, "Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!"

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:34 @ Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:39 @ All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:40 @ There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies; but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:41 @ There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:42 @ So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:47 @ The first man was of the earth, 1made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:48 @ As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:49 @ And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:50 @ Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:52 @ in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:56 @ The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.

nkjv@1Corinthians:15:58 @ Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

nkjv@1Corinthians:16:1 @ Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so you must do also:

nkjv@1Corinthians:16:2 @ On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come.

nkjv@1Corinthians:16:10 @ And if Timothy comes, see that he may be with you without fear; for he does the work of the Lord, as I also do.

nkjv@1Corinthians:16:15 @ I urge you, brethren--you know the household of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to the ministry of the saints--

nkjv@1Corinthians:16:17 @ I am glad about the coming of Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus, for what was lacking on your part they supplied.

nkjv@1Corinthians:16:19 @ The churches of Asia greet you. Aquila and Priscilla greet you heartily in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.

nkjv@1Corinthians:16:23 @ The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

nkjv@2Corinthians:1:1 @ Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, To the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints who are in all Achaia:

nkjv@2Corinthians:1:3 @ Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,

nkjv@2Corinthians:1:5 @ For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.

nkjv@2Corinthians:1:7 @ And our hope for you is steadfast, because we know that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so also you will partake of the consolation.

nkjv@2Corinthians:1:8 @ For we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, of our trouble which came to us in Asia: that we were burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life.

nkjv@2Corinthians:1:9 @ Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead,

nkjv@2Corinthians:1:12 @ For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more abundantly toward you.

nkjv@2Corinthians:1:14 @ (as also you have understood us in part), that we are your boast as you also are ours, in the day of the Lord Jesus.

nkjv@2Corinthians:1:16 @ to pass by way of you to Macedonia, to come again from Macedonia to you, and be helped by you on my way to Judea.

nkjv@2Corinthians:1:19 @ For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us--by me, Silvanus, and Timothy--was not Yes and No, but in Him was Yes.

nkjv@2Corinthians:1:20 @ For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.

nkjv@2Corinthians:2:3 @ And I wrote this very thing to you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow over those from whom I ought to have joy, having confidence in you all that my joy is the joy of you all.

nkjv@2Corinthians:2:4 @ For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to you, with many tears, not that you should be grieved, but that you might know the love which I have so abundantly for you.

nkjv@2Corinthians:2:5 @ But if anyone has caused grief, he has not grieved me, but all of you to some extent--not to be too severe.

nkjv@2Corinthians:2:10 @ Now whom you forgive anything, I also forgive. For if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ,

nkjv@2Corinthians:2:11 @ lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.

nkjv@2Corinthians:2:13 @ I had no rest in my spirit, because I did not find Titus my brother; but taking my leave of them, I departed for Macedonia.

nkjv@2Corinthians:2:14 @ Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

nkjv@2Corinthians:2:15 @ For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.

nkjv@2Corinthians:2:16 @ To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?

nkjv@2Corinthians:2:17 @ For we are not, as so many, peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ.

nkjv@2Corinthians:3:1 @ Do we begin again to commend ourselves? Or do we need, as some others, epistles of commendation to you or letters of commendation from you?

nkjv@2Corinthians:3:3 @ clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.

nkjv@2Corinthians:3:5 @ Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God,

nkjv@2Corinthians:3:6 @ who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

nkjv@2Corinthians:3:7 @ But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away,

nkjv@2Corinthians:3:8 @ how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious?

nkjv@2Corinthians:3:9 @ For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory.

nkjv@2Corinthians:3:10 @ For even what was made glorious had no glory in this respect, because of the glory that excels.

nkjv@2Corinthians:3:12 @ Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech--

nkjv@2Corinthians:3:13 @ unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away.

nkjv@2Corinthians:3:14 @ But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ.

nkjv@2Corinthians:3:17 @ Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

nkjv@2Corinthians:3:18 @ But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

nkjv@2Corinthians:4:2 @ But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.

nkjv@2Corinthians:4:4 @ whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

nkjv@2Corinthians:4:6 @ For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

nkjv@2Corinthians:4:7 @ But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.

nkjv@2Corinthians:4:10 @ always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.

nkjv@2Corinthians:4:11 @ For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

nkjv@2Corinthians:4:13 @ And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, "I believed and therefore I spoke," we also believe and therefore speak,

nkjv@2Corinthians:4:15 @ For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.

nkjv@2Corinthians:4:17 @ For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,

nkjv@2Corinthians:5:10 @ For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

nkjv@2Corinthians:5:11 @ Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences.

nkjv@2Corinthians:5:13 @ For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; or if we are of sound mind, it is for you.

nkjv@2Corinthians:5:14 @ For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died;

nkjv@2Corinthians:5:18 @ Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,

nkjv@2Corinthians:5:19 @ that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

nkjv@2Corinthians:5:21 @ For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

nkjv@2Corinthians:6:1 @ We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain.

nkjv@2Corinthians:6:2 @ For He says: "In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you." Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

nkjv@2Corinthians:6:3 @ We give no offense in anything, that our ministry may not be blamed.

nkjv@2Corinthians:6:4 @ But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses,

nkjv@2Corinthians:6:7 @ by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

nkjv@2Corinthians:6:16 @ And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people."

nkjv@2Corinthians:7:1 @ Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

nkjv@2Corinthians:7:4 @ Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my boasting on your behalf. I am filled with comfort. I am exceedingly joyful in all our tribulation.

nkjv@2Corinthians:7:6 @ Nevertheless God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus,

nkjv@2Corinthians:7:7 @ and not only by his coming, but also by the consolation with which he was comforted in you, when he told us of your earnest desire, your mourning, your zeal for me, so that I rejoiced even more.

nkjv@2Corinthians:7:10 @ For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.

nkjv@2Corinthians:7:11 @ For observe this very thing, that you sorrowed in a godly manner: What diligence it produced in you, what clearing of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what vehement desire, what zeal, what vindication! In all things you proved yourselves to be clear in this matter.

nkjv@2Corinthians:7:12 @ Therefore, although I wrote to you, I did not do it for the sake of him who had done the wrong, nor for the sake of him who suffered wrong, but that our care for you in the sight of God might appear to you.

nkjv@2Corinthians:7:13 @ Therefore we have been comforted in your comfort. And we rejoiced exceedingly more for the joy of Titus, because his spirit has been refreshed by you all.

nkjv@2Corinthians:7:15 @ And his affections are greater for you as he remembers the obedience of you all, how with fear and trembling you received him.

nkjv@2Corinthians:8:1 @ Moreover, brethren, we make known to you the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia:

nkjv@2Corinthians:8:2 @ that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded in the riches of their liberality.

nkjv@2Corinthians:8:4 @ imploring us with much urgency that we would receive the gift and the fellowship of the ministering to the saints.

nkjv@2Corinthians:8:5 @ And not only as we had hoped, but they first gave themselves to the Lord, and then to us by the will of God.

nkjv@2Corinthians:8:8 @ I speak not by commandment, but I am testing the sincerity of your love by the diligence of others.

nkjv@2Corinthians:8:9 @ For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.

nkjv@2Corinthians:8:11 @ but now you also must complete the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to desire it, so there also may be a completion out of what you have.

nkjv@2Corinthians:8:16 @ But thanks be to God who puts the same earnest care for you into the heart of Titus.

nkjv@2Corinthians:8:17 @ For he not only accepted the exhortation, but being more diligent, he went to you of his own accord.

nkjv@2Corinthians:8:19 @ and not only that, but who was also chosen by the churches to travel with us with this gift, which is administered by us to the glory of the Lord Himself and to show your ready mind,

nkjv@2Corinthians:8:21 @ providing honorable things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.

nkjv@2Corinthians:8:22 @ And we have sent with them our brother whom we have often proved diligent in many things, but now much more diligent, because of the great confidence which we have in you.

nkjv@2Corinthians:8:23 @ If anyone inquires about Titus, he is my partner and fellow worker concerning you. Or if our brethren are inquired about, they are messengers of the churches, the glory of Christ.

nkjv@2Corinthians:8:24 @ Therefore show to them, and before the churches, the proof of your love and of our boasting on your behalf.

nkjv@2Corinthians:9:2 @ for I know your willingness, about which I boast of you to the Macedonians, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal has stirred up the majority.

nkjv@2Corinthians:9:3 @ Yet I have sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you should be in vain in this respect, that, as I said, you may be ready;

nkjv@2Corinthians:9:4 @ lest if some Macedonians come with me and find you unprepared, we (not to mention you!) should be ashamed of this confident boasting.

nkjv@2Corinthians:9:5 @ Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren to go to you ahead of time, and prepare your generous gift beforehand, which you had previously promised, that it may be ready as a matter of generosity and not as a grudging obligation.

nkjv@2Corinthians:9:7 @ So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.

nkjv@2Corinthians:9:10 @ Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness,

nkjv@2Corinthians:9:12 @ For the administration of this service not only supplies the needs of the saints, but also is abounding through many thanksgivings to God,

nkjv@2Corinthians:9:13 @ while, through the proof of this ministry, they glorify God for the obedience of your confession to the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal sharing with them and all men,

nkjv@2Corinthians:9:14 @ and by their prayer for you, who long for you because of the exceeding grace of God in you.

nkjv@2Corinthians:10:1 @ Now I, Paul, myself am pleading with you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ--who in presence am lowly among you, but being absent am bold toward you.

nkjv@2Corinthians:10:2 @ But I beg you that when I am present I may not be bold with that confidence by which I intend to be bold against some, who think of us as if we walked according to the flesh.

nkjv@2Corinthians:10:4 @ For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,

nkjv@2Corinthians:10:5 @ casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

nkjv@2Corinthians:10:13 @ We, however, will not boast beyond measure, but within the limits of the sphere which God appointed us--a sphere which especially includes you.

nkjv@2Corinthians:10:14 @ For we are not overextending ourselves (as though our authority did not extend to you), for it was to you that we came with the gospel of Christ;

nkjv@2Corinthians:10:15 @ not boasting of things beyond measure, that is, in other men's labors, but having hope, that as your faith is increased, we shall be greatly enlarged by you in our sphere,

nkjv@2Corinthians:10:16 @ to preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man's sphere of accomplishment.

nkjv@2Corinthians:11:7 @ Did I commit sin in humbling myself that you might be exalted, because I preached the gospel of God to you free of charge?

nkjv@2Corinthians:11:10 @ As the truth of Christ is in me, no one shall stop me from this boasting in the regions of Achaia.

nkjv@2Corinthians:11:12 @ But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the things of which they boast.

nkjv@2Corinthians:11:13 @ For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.

nkjv@2Corinthians:11:14 @ And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.

nkjv@2Corinthians:11:15 @ Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.

nkjv@2Corinthians:11:17 @ What I speak, I speak not according to the Lord, but as it were, foolishly, in this confidence of boasting.

nkjv@2Corinthians:11:22 @ Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I.

nkjv@2Corinthians:11:23 @ Are they ministers of Christ?--I speak as a fool--I am more: in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often.

nkjv@2Corinthians:11:26 @ in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;

nkjv@2Corinthians:11:27 @ in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness--

nkjv@2Corinthians:11:31 @ The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is blessed forever, knows that I am not lying.

nkjv@2Corinthians:11:32 @ In Damascus the governor, under Aretas the king, was guarding the city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desiring to arrest me;

nkjv@2Corinthians:12:1 @ It is doubtless not profitable for me to boast. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord:

nkjv@2Corinthians:12:2 @ I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago--whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows--such a one was caught up to the third heaven.

nkjv@2Corinthians:12:3 @ And I know such a man--whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows--

nkjv@2Corinthians:12:5 @ Of such a one I will boast; yet of myself I will not boast, except in my infirmities.

nkjv@2Corinthians:12:6 @ For though I might desire to boast, I will not be a fool; for I will speak the truth. But I refrain, lest anyone should think of me above what he sees me to be or hears from me.

nkjv@2Corinthians:12:7 @ And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure.

nkjv@2Corinthians:12:9 @ And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

nkjv@2Corinthians:12:12 @ Truly the signs of an apostle were accomplished among you with all perseverance, in signs and wonders and mighty deeds.

nkjv@2Corinthians:12:17 @ Did I take advantage of you by any of those whom I sent to you?

nkjv@2Corinthians:12:18 @ I urged Titus, and sent our brother with him. Did Titus take advantage of you? Did we not walk in the same spirit? Did we not walk in the same steps?

nkjv@2Corinthians:12:20 @ For I fear lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I wish, and that I shall be found by you such as you do not wish; lest there be contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, backbitings, whisperings, conceits, tumults;

nkjv@2Corinthians:12:21 @ lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and I shall mourn for many who have sinned before and have not repented of the uncleanness, fornication, and lewdness which they have practiced.

nkjv@2Corinthians:13:1 @ This will be the third time I am coming to you. "By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established."

nkjv@2Corinthians:13:3 @ since you seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, who is not weak toward you, but mighty in you.

nkjv@2Corinthians:13:4 @ For though He was crucified in weakness, yet He lives by the power of God. For we also are weak in Him, but we shall live with Him by the power of God toward you.

nkjv@2Corinthians:13:11 @ Finally, brethren, farewell. Become complete. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.

nkjv@2Corinthians:13:14 @ The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.

nkjv@Galatians:1:2 @ and all the brethren who are with me, To the churches of Galatia:

nkjv@Galatians:1:4 @ who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,

nkjv@Galatians:1:6 @ I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel,

nkjv@Galatians:1:7 @ which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.

nkjv@Galatians:1:10 @ For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.

nkjv@Galatians:1:12 @ For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.

nkjv@Galatians:1:13 @ For you have heard of my former conduct in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it.

nkjv@Galatians:1:14 @ And I advanced in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries in my own nation, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers.

nkjv@Galatians:1:19 @ But I saw none of the other apostles except James, the Lord's brother.

nkjv@Galatians:1:21 @ Afterward I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.

nkjv@Galatians:1:22 @ And I was unknown by face to the churches of Judea which were in Christ.

nkjv@Galatians:2:2 @ And I went up by revelation, and communicated to them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to those who were of reputation, lest by any means I might run, or had run, in vain.

nkjv@Galatians:2:4 @ And this occurred because of false brethren secretly brought in (who came in by stealth to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage),

nkjv@Galatians:2:5 @ to whom we did not yield submission even for an hour, that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.

nkjv@Galatians:2:9 @ and when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that had been given to me, they gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised.

nkjv@Galatians:2:12 @ for before certain men came from James, he would eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing those who were of the circumcision.

nkjv@Galatians:2:13 @ And the rest of the Jews also played the hypocrite with him, so that even Barnabas was carried away with their hypocrisy.

nkjv@Galatians:2:14 @ But when I saw that they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all, "If you, being a Jew, live in the manner of Gentiles and not as the Jews, why do you compel Gentiles to live as Jews?

nkjv@Galatians:2:15 @ We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles,

nkjv@Galatians:2:16 @ knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.

nkjv@Galatians:2:17 @ "But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is Christ therefore a minister of sin? Certainly not!

nkjv@Galatians:2:20 @ I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

nkjv@Galatians:2:21 @ I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain."

nkjv@Galatians:3:2 @ This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

nkjv@Galatians:3:5 @ Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?--

nkjv@Galatians:3:7 @ Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham.

nkjv@Galatians:3:9 @ So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.

nkjv@Galatians:3:10 @ For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them."

nkjv@Galatians:3:11 @ But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for "the just shall live by faith."

nkjv@Galatians:3:12 @ Yet the law is not of faith, but "the man who does them shall live by them."

nkjv@Galatians:3:13 @ Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree" ),

nkjv@Galatians:3:14 @ that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

nkjv@Galatians:3:15 @ Brethren, I speak in the manner of men: Though it is only a man's covenant, yet if it is confirmed, no one annuls or adds to it.

nkjv@Galatians:3:16 @ Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, "And to seeds," as of many, but as of one, "And to your Seed," who is Christ.

nkjv@Galatians:3:17 @ And this I say, that the law, which was four hundred and thirty years later, cannot annul the covenant that was confirmed before by God in Christ, that it should make the promise of no effect.

nkjv@Galatians:3:18 @ For if the inheritance is of the law, it is no longer of promise; but God gave it to Abraham by promise.

nkjv@Galatians:3:19 @ What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator.

nkjv@Galatians:3:21 @ Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law.

nkjv@Galatians:3:26 @ For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

nkjv@Galatians:3:27 @ For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

nkjv@Galatians:4:1 @ Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all,

nkjv@Galatians:4:3 @ Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world.

nkjv@Galatians:4:4 @ But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law,

nkjv@Galatians:4:6 @ And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, "Abba, Father!"

nkjv@Galatians:4:7 @ Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

nkjv@Galatians:4:13 @ You know that because of physical infirmity I preached the gospel to you at the first.

nkjv@Galatians:4:14 @ And my trial which was in my flesh you did not despise or reject, but you received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus.

nkjv@Galatians:4:23 @ But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise,

nkjv@Galatians:4:26 @ but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.

nkjv@Galatians:4:28 @ Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise.

nkjv@Galatians:4:30 @ Nevertheless what does the Scripture say? "Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman."

nkjv@Galatians:4:31 @ So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman but of the free.

nkjv@Galatians:5:1 @ Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

nkjv@Galatians:5:2 @ Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing.

nkjv@Galatians:5:5 @ For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.

nkjv@Galatians:5:11 @ And I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why do I still suffer persecution? Then the offense of the cross has ceased.

nkjv@Galatians:5:12 @ I could wish that those who trouble you would even cut themselves off!

nkjv@Galatians:5:16 @ I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

nkjv@Galatians:5:19 @ Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,

nkjv@Galatians:5:20 @ idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,

nkjv@Galatians:5:21 @ envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

nkjv@Galatians:5:22 @ But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

nkjv@Galatians:6:1 @ Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.

nkjv@Galatians:6:2 @ Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

nkjv@Galatians:6:8 @ For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

nkjv@Galatians:6:10 @ Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.

nkjv@Galatians:6:12 @ As many as desire to make a good showing in the flesh, these would compel you to be circumcised, only that they may not suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.

nkjv@Galatians:6:14 @ But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

nkjv@Galatians:6:16 @ And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.

nkjv@Galatians:6:17 @ From now on let no one trouble me, for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

nkjv@Galatians:6:18 @ Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

nkjv@Ephesians:1:1 @ Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, To the saints who are in Ephesus, and faithful in Christ Jesus:

nkjv@Ephesians:1:6 @ to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

nkjv@Ephesians:1:7 @ In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace

nkjv@Ephesians:1:9 @ having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself,

nkjv@Ephesians:1:10 @ that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth--in Him.

nkjv@Ephesians:1:23 @ which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

nkjv@Ephesians:2:7 @ that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

nkjv@Ephesians:2:8 @ For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,

nkjv@Ephesians:2:9 @ not of works, lest anyone should boast.

nkjv@Ephesians:2:12 @ that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.

nkjv@Ephesians:2:13 @ But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

nkjv@Ephesians:2:14 @ For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation,

nkjv@Ephesians:4:30 @ And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

nkjv@Ephesians:5:1 @ Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.

nkjv@Ephesians:5:2 @ And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.

nkjv@Ephesians:5:4 @ neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.

nkjv@Ephesians:5:5 @ For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

nkjv@Ephesians:5:6 @ Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.

nkjv@Ephesians:5:8 @ For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light

nkjv@Ephesians:5:9 @ (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth),

nkjv@Ephesians:5:11 @ And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.

nkjv@Ephesians:5:12 @ For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.

nkjv@Ephesians:5:21 @ submitting to one another in the fear of God.

nkjv@Ephesians:6:14 @ Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

nkjv@Ephesians:6:15 @ and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

nkjv@Philippians:1:7 @ just as it is right for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart, inasmuch as both in my chains and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers with me of grace.

nkjv@Philippians:1:17 @ but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel.

nkjv@Philippians:1:19 @ For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

nkjv@Philippians:1:25 @ And being confident of this, I know that I shall remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy of faith,

nkjv@Philippians:1:27 @ Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel,

nkjv@Philippians:1:28 @ and not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that from God.

nkjv@Philippians:1:29 @ For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,

nkjv@Philippians:2:1 @ Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy,

nkjv@Philippians:2:2 @ fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

nkjv@Philippians:2:17 @ Yes, and if I am being poured out as a drink offering on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all.

nkjv@Philippians:2:21 @ For all seek their own, not the things which are of Christ Jesus.

nkjv@Philippians:4:3 @ And I urge you also, true companion, help these women who labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the Book of Life.

nkjv@Philippians:4:7 @ and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

nkjv@Philippians:4:8 @ Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things.

nkjv@Colossians:1:3 @ We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,

nkjv@Colossians:1:4 @ since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of your love for all the saints;

nkjv@Colossians:1:5 @ because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel,

nkjv@Colossians:1:6 @ which has come to you, as it has also in all the world, and is bringing forth fruit, as it is also among you since the day you heard and knew the grace of God in truth;

nkjv@Colossians:1:7 @ as you also learned from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf,

nkjv@Colossians:1:9 @ For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

nkjv@Colossians:1:10 @ that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;

nkjv@Colossians:1:12 @ giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.

nkjv@Colossians:1:13 @ He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,

nkjv@Colossians:1:14 @ in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.

nkjv@Colossians:1:15 @ He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.

nkjv@Colossians:1:18 @ And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

nkjv@Colossians:1:20 @ and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

nkjv@Colossians:1:22 @ in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight--

nkjv@Colossians:1:23 @ if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.

nkjv@Colossians:1:24 @ I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church,

nkjv@Colossians:1:25 @ of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God,

nkjv@Colossians:1:27 @ To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

nkjv@Colossians:2:2 @ that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ,

nkjv@Colossians:2:3 @ in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

nkjv@Colossians:2:5 @ For though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ.

nkjv@Colossians:2:8 @ Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.

nkjv@Colossians:2:9 @ For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;

nkjv@Colossians:2:10 @ and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

nkjv@Colossians:2:11 @ In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,

nkjv@Colossians:2:12 @ buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.

nkjv@Colossians:2:13 @ And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,

nkjv@Colossians:2:14 @ having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.

nkjv@Colossians:2:15 @ Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

nkjv@Colossians:2:17 @ which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ.

nkjv@Colossians:2:18 @ Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

nkjv@Colossians:2:20 @ Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations--

nkjv@Colossians:2:22 @ which all concern things which perish with the using--according to the commandments and doctrines of men?

nkjv@Colossians:2:23 @ These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgence of the flesh.

nkjv@Colossians:3:1 @ If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

nkjv@Colossians:3:6 @ Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience,

nkjv@Colossians:3:8 @ But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.

nkjv@Colossians:3:9 @ Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds,

nkjv@Colossians:3:10 @ and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,

nkjv@Colossians:3:12 @ Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering;

nkjv@Colossians:3:14 @ But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.

nkjv@Colossians:3:15 @ And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.

nkjv@Colossians:3:16 @ Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

nkjv@Colossians:3:17 @ And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

nkjv@Colossians:3:22 @ Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God.

nkjv@Colossians:3:24 @ knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.

nkjv@Colossians:4:3 @ meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains,

nkjv@Colossians:4:9 @ with Onesimus, a faithful and beloved brother, who is one of you. They will make known to you all things which are happening here.

nkjv@Colossians:4:10 @ Aristarchus my fellow prisoner greets you, with Mark the cousin of Barnabas (about whom you received instructions: if he comes to you, welcome him),

nkjv@Colossians:4:11 @ and Jesus who is called Justus. These are my only fellow workers for the kingdom of God who are of the circumcision; they have proved to be a comfort to me.

nkjv@Colossians:4:12 @ Epaphras, who is one of you, a bondservant of Christ, greets you, always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

nkjv@Colossians:4:16 @ Now when this epistle is read among you, see that it is read also in the church of the Laodiceans, and that you likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:1:1 @ Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:1:2 @ We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers,

nkjv@1Thessalonians:1:3 @ remembering without ceasing your work of faith, labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of our God and Father,

nkjv@1Thessalonians:1:5 @ For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit and in much assurance, as you know what kind of men we were among you for your sake.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:1:6 @ And you became followers of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Spirit,

nkjv@1Thessalonians:1:8 @ For from you the word of the Lord has sounded forth, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place. Your faith toward God has gone out, so that we do not need to say anything.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:1:9 @ For they themselves declare concerning us what manner of entry we had to you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God,

nkjv@1Thessalonians:2:2 @ But even after we had suffered before and were spitefully treated at Philippi, as you know, we were bold in our God to speak to you the gospel of God in much conflict.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:2:6 @ Nor did we seek glory from men, either from you or from others, when we might have made demands as apostles of Christ.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:2:8 @ So, affectionately longing for you, we were well pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God, but also our own lives, because you had become dear to us.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:2:9 @ For you remember, brethren, our labor and toil; for laboring night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you, we preached to you the gospel of God.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:2:11 @ as you know how we exhorted, and comforted, and charged every one of you, as a father does his own children,

nkjv@1Thessalonians:2:12 @ that you would walk worthy of God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:2:13 @ For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:2:14 @ For you, brethren, became imitators of the churches of God which are in Judea in Christ Jesus. For you also suffered the same things from your own countrymen, just as they did from the Judeans,

nkjv@1Thessalonians:2:16 @ forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they may be saved, so as always to fill up the measure of their sins; but wrath has come upon them to the uttermost.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:2:19 @ For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Is it not even you in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming?

nkjv@1Thessalonians:3:2 @ and sent Timothy, our brother and minister of God, and our fellow laborer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you and encourage you concerning your faith,

nkjv@1Thessalonians:3:6 @ But now that Timothy has come to us from you, and brought us good news of your faith and love, and that you always have good remembrance of us, greatly desiring to see us, as we also to see you--

nkjv@1Thessalonians:3:13 @ so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:4:3 @ For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality;

nkjv@1Thessalonians:4:4 @ that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor,

nkjv@1Thessalonians:4:5 @ not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God;

nkjv@1Thessalonians:4:6 @ that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:4:15 @ For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:4:16 @ For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:5:2 @ For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:5:5 @ You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:5:8 @ But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:5:18 @ in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:5:22 @ Abstain from every form of evil.

nkjv@1Thessalonians:5:23 @ Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

nkjv@2Thessalonians:1:1 @ Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:

nkjv@2Thessalonians:1:3 @ We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other,

nkjv@2Thessalonians:1:4 @ so that we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure,

nkjv@2Thessalonians:1:5 @ which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer;

nkjv@2Thessalonians:1:8 @ in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

nkjv@2Thessalonians:1:9 @ These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,

nkjv@2Thessalonians:1:11 @ Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power,

nkjv@2Thessalonians:1:12 @ that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

nkjv@2Thessalonians:2:1 @ Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you,

nkjv@2Thessalonians:2:2 @ not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come.

nkjv@2Thessalonians:2:3 @ Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,

nkjv@2Thessalonians:2:4 @ who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

nkjv@2Thessalonians:2:7 @ For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.

nkjv@2Thessalonians:2:8 @ And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.

nkjv@2Thessalonians:2:9 @ The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,

nkjv@2Thessalonians:2:10 @ and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

nkjv@2Thessalonians:2:14 @ to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

nkjv@2Thessalonians:3:1 @ Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you,

nkjv@2Thessalonians:3:5 @ Now may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patience of Christ.

nkjv@2Thessalonians:3:6 @ But we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw from every brother who walks disorderly and not according to the tradition which he received from us.

nkjv@2Thessalonians:3:8 @ nor did we eat anyone's bread free of charge, but worked with labor and toil night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you,

nkjv@2Thessalonians:3:9 @ not because we do not have authority, but to make ourselves an example of how you should follow us.

nkjv@2Thessalonians:3:16 @ Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all.

nkjv@1Timothy:3:16 @ And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.

nkjv@1Timothy:4:1 @ Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,

nkjv@1Timothy:4:4 @ For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving;

nkjv@1Timothy:4:6 @ If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed.

nkjv@1Timothy:4:7 @ But reject profane and old wives' fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness.

nkjv@1Timothy:4:8 @ For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.

nkjv@1Timothy:4:9 @ This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance.

nkjv@1Timothy:4:14 @ Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.

nkjv@1Timothy:5:8 @ But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

nkjv@1Timothy:6:1 @ Let as many bondservants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and His doctrine may not be blasphemed.

nkjv@Philemon:1:25 @ The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

nkjv@Hebrews:1:2 @ has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;

nkjv@Hebrews:1:3 @ who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

nkjv@Hebrews:1:5 @ For to which of the angels did He ever say: "You are My Son, Today I have begotten You"? And again: "I will be to Him a Father, And He shall be to Me a Son"?

nkjv@Hebrews:1:6 @ But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: "Let all the angels of God worship Him."

nkjv@Hebrews:1:7 @ And of the angels He says: "Who makes His angels spirits And His ministers a flame of fire."

nkjv@Hebrews:1:8 @ But to the Son He says: "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.

nkjv@Hebrews:1:9 @ You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions."

nkjv@Hebrews:1:10 @ And: "You, LORD, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands.

nkjv@Hebrews:1:13 @ But to which of the angels has He ever said: "Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool"?

nkjv@Hebrews:2:4 @ God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will?

nkjv@Hebrews:2:5 @ For He has not put the world to come, of which we speak, in subjection to angels.

nkjv@Hebrews:2:6 @ But one testified in a certain place, saying: "What is man that You are mindful of him, Or the son of man that You take care of him?

nkjv@Hebrews:2:7 @ You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor, And set him over the works of Your hands.

nkjv@Hebrews:2:9 @ But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.

nkjv@Hebrews:2:10 @ For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

nkjv@Hebrews:2:11 @ For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,

nkjv@Hebrews:2:12 @ saying: "I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You."

nkjv@Hebrews:2:14 @ Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,

nkjv@Hebrews:2:15 @ and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

nkjv@Hebrews:2:16 @ For indeed He does not give aid to angels, but He does give aid to the seed of Abraham.

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:3:3 @ For this One has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as He who built the house has more honor than the house.

nkjv@Hebrews:3:5 @ And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which would be spoken afterward,

nkjv@Hebrews:3:6 @ but Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end.

nkjv@Hebrews:3:8 @ Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, In the day of trial in the wilderness,

nkjv@Hebrews:3:12 @ Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God;

nkjv@Hebrews:3:13 @ but exhort one another daily, while it is called "Today," lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

nkjv@Hebrews:3:14 @ For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,

nkjv@Hebrews:3:16 @ For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses?

nkjv@Hebrews:3:19 @ So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

nkjv@Hebrews:4:1 @ Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it.

nkjv@Hebrews:4:2 @ For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.

nkjv@Hebrews:4:3 @ For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said: "So I swore in My wrath, "They shall not enter My rest,"' although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

nkjv@Hebrews:4:4 @ For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: "And God rested on the seventh day from all His works";

nkjv@Hebrews:4:6 @ Since therefore it remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience,

nkjv@Hebrews:4:8 @ For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day.

nkjv@Hebrews:4:9 @ There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.

nkjv@Hebrews:4:11 @ Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience.

nkjv@Hebrews:4:12 @ For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

nkjv@Hebrews:4:13 @ And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.

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:4:16 @ Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

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:5:3 @ Because of this he is required as for the people, so also for himself, to offer sacrifices for sins.

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

nkjv@Hebrews:5:7 @ who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear,

nkjv@Hebrews:5:9 @ And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him,

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

nkjv@Hebrews:5:11 @ of whom we have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing.

nkjv@Hebrews:5:12 @ For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.

nkjv@Hebrews:5:13 @ For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.

nkjv@Hebrews:5:14 @ But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

nkjv@Hebrews:6:1 @ Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God,

nkjv@Hebrews:6:2 @ of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

nkjv@Hebrews:6:4 @ For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit,

nkjv@Hebrews:6:5 @ and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come,

nkjv@Hebrews:6:6 @ if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.

nkjv@Hebrews:6:7 @ For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God;

nkjv@Hebrews:6:9 @ But, beloved, we are confident of better things concerning you, yes, things that accompany salvation, though we speak in this manner.

nkjv@Hebrews:6:10 @ For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

nkjv@Hebrews:6:11 @ And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end,

nkjv@Hebrews:6:16 @ For men indeed swear by the greater, and an oath for confirmation is for them an end of all dispute.

nkjv@Hebrews:6:17 @ Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath,

nkjv@Hebrews:6:18 @ that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.

nkjv@Hebrews:6:19 @ This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil,

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:7:2 @ to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being translated "king of righteousness," and then also king of Salem, meaning "king of peace,"

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:7:4 @ Now consider how great this man was, to whom even the patriarch Abraham gave a tenth of the spoils.

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:7:8 @ Here mortal men receive tithes, but there he receives them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives.

nkjv@Hebrews:7:10 @ for he was still in the loins of his father when Melchizedek met him.

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:7:13 @ For He of whom these things are spoken belongs to another tribe, from which no man has officiated at the altar.

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:7:16 @ who has come, not according to the law of a fleshly commandment, but according to the power of an endless life.

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

nkjv@Hebrews:7:18 @ For on the one hand there is an annulling of the former commandment because of its weakness and unprofitableness,

nkjv@Hebrews:7:19 @ for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.

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:7:22 @ by so much more Jesus has become a surety of a better covenant.

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:8:2 @ a Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord erected, and not man.

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:8:5 @ who serve the copy and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to make the tabernacle. For He said, "See that you make all things according to the pattern shown you on the mountain."

nkjv@Hebrews:8:6 @ But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.

nkjv@Hebrews:8:8 @ Because finding fault with them, He says: "Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah--

nkjv@Hebrews:8:9 @ not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they did not continue in My covenant, and I disregarded them, says the LORD.

nkjv@Hebrews:8:10 @ For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

nkjv@Hebrews:8:11 @ None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, "Know the LORD,' for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them.

nkjv@Hebrews:9:1 @ Then indeed, even the first covenant had ordinances of divine service and the earthly sanctuary.

nkjv@Hebrews:9:3 @ and behind the second veil, the part of the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of All,

nkjv@Hebrews:9:4 @ which had the golden censer and the ark of the covenant overlaid on all sides with gold, in which were the golden pot that had the manna, Aaron's rod that budded, and the tablets of the covenant;

nkjv@Hebrews:9:5 @ and above it were the cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat. Of these things we cannot now speak in detail.

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:9:8 @ the Holy Spirit indicating this, that the way into the Holiest of All was not yet made manifest while the first tabernacle was still standing.

nkjv@Hebrews:9:9 @ It was symbolic for the present time in which both gifts and sacrifices are offered which cannot make him who performed the service perfect in regard to the conscience--

nkjv@Hebrews:9:10 @ concerned only with foods and drinks, various washings, and fleshly ordinances imposed until the time of reformation.

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:9:12 @ Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.

nkjv@Hebrews:9:13 @ For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh,

nkjv@Hebrews:9:14 @ how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

nkjv@Hebrews:9:15 @ And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.

nkjv@Hebrews:9:16 @ For where there is a testament, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.

nkjv@Hebrews:9:19 @ For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water, scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people,

nkjv@Hebrews:9:20 @ saying, "This is the blood of the covenant which God has commanded you."

nkjv@Hebrews:9:21 @ Then likewise he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry.

nkjv@Hebrews:9:22 @ And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.

nkjv@Hebrews:9:23 @ Therefore it was necessary that the copies of the things in the heavens should be purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

nkjv@Hebrews:9:24 @ For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us;

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:9:26 @ He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.

nkjv@Hebrews:9:28 @ so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:1 @ For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:2 @ For then would they not have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:3 @ But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:4 @ For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:5 @ Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: "Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, But a body You have prepared for Me.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:6 @ In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You had no pleasure.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:7 @ Then I said, "Behold, I have come-- In the volume of the book it is written of Me-- To do Your will, O God."'

nkjv@Hebrews:10:8 @ Previously saying, "Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them" (which are offered according to the law),

nkjv@Hebrews:10:10 @ By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

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

nkjv@Hebrews:10:12 @ But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God,

nkjv@Hebrews:10:14 @ For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:18 @ Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:19 @ Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus,

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

nkjv@Hebrews:10:22 @ let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:23 @ Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:25 @ not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:26 @ For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,

nkjv@Hebrews:10:27 @ but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:28 @ Anyone who has rejected Moses' law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:29 @ Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?

nkjv@Hebrews:10:31 @ It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:33 @ partly while you were made a spectacle both by reproaches and tribulations, and partly while you became companions of those who were so treated;

nkjv@Hebrews:10:34 @ for you had compassion on me in my chains, and joyfully accepted the plundering of your goods, knowing that you have a better and an enduring possession for yourselves in heaven.

nkjv@Hebrews:10:36 @ For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:

nkjv@Hebrews:10:39 @ But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:1 @ Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:3 @ By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:4 @ By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:6 @ But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:7 @ By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:9 @ By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise;

nkjv@Hebrews:11:12 @ Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born as many as the stars of the sky in multitude--innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:13 @ These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:17 @ By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

nkjv@Hebrews:11:18 @ of whom it was said, "In Isaac your seed shall be called,"

nkjv@Hebrews:11:21 @ By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, and worshiped, leaning on the top of his staff.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:22 @ By faith Joseph, when he was dying, made mention of the departure of the children of Israel, and gave instructions concerning his bones.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:23 @ By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of the king's command.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:24 @ By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter,

nkjv@Hebrews:11:25 @ choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin,

nkjv@Hebrews:11:26 @ esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:27 @ By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured as seeing Him who is invisible.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:28 @ By faith he kept the Passover and the sprinkling of blood, lest he who destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:30 @ By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they were encircled for seven days.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:32 @ And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets:

nkjv@Hebrews:11:33 @ who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

nkjv@Hebrews:11:34 @ quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:36 @ Still others had trial of mockings and scourgings, yes, and of chains and imprisonment.

nkjv@Hebrews:11:38 @ of whom the world was not worthy. They wandered in deserts and mountains, in dens and caves of the earth.

nkjv@Hebrews:12:1 @ Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

nkjv@Hebrews:12:2 @ looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

nkjv@Hebrews:12:5 @ And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons: "My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD, Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;

nkjv@Hebrews:12:8 @ But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.

nkjv@Hebrews:12:9 @ Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live?

nkjv@Hebrews:12:10 @ For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness.

nkjv@Hebrews:12:11 @ Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

nkjv@Hebrews:12:15 @ looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;

nkjv@Hebrews:12:16 @ lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright.

nkjv@Hebrews:12:23 @ to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect,

nkjv@Hebrews:12:24 @ to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.

nkjv@Hebrews:12:27 @ Now this, "Yet once more," indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.

nkjv@Hebrews:13:7 @ Remember those who rule over you, who have spoken the word of God to you, whose faith follow, considering the outcome of their conduct.

nkjv@Hebrews:13:9 @ Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. For it is good that the heart be established by grace, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them.

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@Hebrews:13:15 @ Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.

nkjv@Hebrews:13:17 @ Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.

nkjv@James:1:5 @ If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

nkjv@James:1:17 @ Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

nkjv@James:1:18 @ Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

nkjv@James:1:20 @ for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

nkjv@James:1:21 @ Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

nkjv@James:1:22 @ But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

nkjv@James:1:23 @ For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror;

nkjv@James:1:24 @ for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.

nkjv@James:1:25 @ But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

nkjv@James:2:1 @ My brethren, do not hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with partiality.

nkjv@James:2:5 @ Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?

nkjv@James:2:10 @ For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.

nkjv@James:2:11 @ For He who said, "Do not commit adultery," also said, "Do not murder." Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law.

nkjv@James:2:12 @ So speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty.

nkjv@James:2:14 @ What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?

nkjv@James:2:15 @ If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food,

nkjv@James:2:16 @ and one of you says to them, "Depart in peace, be warmed and filled," but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?

nkjv@James:2:21 @ Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?

nkjv@James:2:23 @ And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness." And he was called the friend of God.

nkjv@James:3:1 @ My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment.

nkjv@James:3:6 @ And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.

nkjv@James:3:7 @ For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind.

nkjv@James:3:8 @ But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

nkjv@James:3:9 @ With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God.

nkjv@James:3:10 @ Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.

nkjv@James:3:13 @ Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom.

nkjv@James:3:17 @ But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.

nkjv@James:3:18 @ Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

nkjv@James:4:4 @ Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

nkjv@James:4:10 @ Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.

nkjv@James:4:11 @ Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.

nkjv@James:4:13 @ Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit";

nkjv@James:5:4 @ Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.

nkjv@James:5:5 @ You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter.

nkjv@James:5:7 @ Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain.

nkjv@James:5:8 @ You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.

nkjv@James:5:10 @ My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering and patience.

nkjv@James:5:11 @ Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord--that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful.

nkjv@James:5:14 @ Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.

nkjv@James:5:15 @ And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

nkjv@James:5:16 @ Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

nkjv@1Peter:5:2 @ Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly;

nkjv@1Peter:5:4 @ and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away.

nkjv@1Peter:5:5 @ Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for "God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble."

nkjv@1Peter:5:6 @ Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,

nkjv@1Peter:5:10 @ But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.

nkjv@1Peter:5:12 @ By Silvanus, our faithful brother as I consider him, I have written to you briefly, exhorting and testifying that this is the true grace of God in which you stand.

nkjv@1Peter:5:14 @ Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace to you all who are in Christ Jesus. Amen.

nkjv@2Peter:1:1 @ Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ:

nkjv@2Peter:1:2 @ Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,

nkjv@2Peter:1:3 @ as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,

nkjv@2Peter:1:4 @ by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

nkjv@2Peter:1:8 @ For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

nkjv@2Peter:1:11 @ for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

nkjv@2Peter:1:12 @ For this reason I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know and are established in the present truth.

nkjv@2Peter:1:14 @ knowing that shortly I must put off my tent, just as our Lord Jesus Christ showed me.

nkjv@2Peter:1:15 @ Moreover I will be careful to ensure that you always have a reminder of these things after my decease.

nkjv@2Peter:1:16 @ For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty.

nkjv@2Peter:1:20 @ knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation,

nkjv@2Peter:1:21 @ for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

nkjv@2Peter:2:2 @ And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.

nkjv@2Peter:2:4 @ For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment;

nkjv@2Peter:2:5 @ and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly;

nkjv@2Peter:2:6 @ and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly;

nkjv@2Peter:2:7 @ and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked

nkjv@2Peter:2:9 @ then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment,

nkjv@2Peter:2:10 @ and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries,

nkjv@2Peter:2:12 @ But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption,

nkjv@2Peter:2:13 @ and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime. They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you,

nkjv@2Peter:2:14 @ having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children.

nkjv@2Peter:2:15 @ They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

nkjv@2Peter:2:16 @ but he was rebuked for his iniquity: a dumb donkey speaking with a man's voice restrained the madness of the prophet.

nkjv@2Peter:2:17 @ These are wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.

nkjv@2Peter:2:18 @ For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error.

nkjv@2Peter:2:19 @ While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage.

nkjv@2Peter:2:20 @ For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning.

nkjv@2Peter:2:21 @ For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them.

nkjv@2Peter:3:1 @ Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder),

nkjv@2Peter:3:2 @ that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior,

nkjv@2Peter:3:3 @ knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts,

nkjv@2Peter:3:4 @ and saying, "Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation."

nkjv@2Peter:3:5 @ For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water,

nkjv@2Peter:3:7 @ But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

nkjv@2Peter:3:10 @ But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.

nkjv@2Peter:3:11 @ Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,

nkjv@2Peter:3:12 @ looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?

nkjv@2Peter:3:15 @ and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation--as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you,

nkjv@2Peter:3:16 @ as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.

nkjv@2Peter:3:17 @ You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked;

nkjv@2Peter:3:18 @ but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.

nkjv@1John:1:1 @ That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life--

nkjv@1John:2:5 @ But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.

nkjv@1John:2:14 @ I have written to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one.

nkjv@1John:2:15 @ Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

nkjv@1John:2:16 @ For all that is in the world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--is not of the Father but is of the world.

nkjv@1John:2:17 @ And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

nkjv@1John:3:1 @ Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

nkjv@1John:3:2 @ Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.

nkjv@1John:3:8 @ He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

nkjv@1John:3:9 @ Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

nkjv@1John:3:10 @ In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother.

nkjv@1John:3:12 @ not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother's righteous.

nkjv@1John:3:17 @ But whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?

nkjv@1John:3:19 @ And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.

nkjv@1John:3:23 @ And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandment.

nkjv@1John:4:1 @ Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

nkjv@1John:4:2 @ By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,

nkjv@1John:4:3 @ and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

nkjv@1John:4:4 @ You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

nkjv@1John:4:5 @ They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them.

nkjv@1John:4:6 @ We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

nkjv@1John:4:7 @ Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

nkjv@1John:4:9 @ In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.

nkjv@1John:4:13 @ By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.

nkjv@1John:4:14 @ And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.

nkjv@1John:4:15 @ Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.

nkjv@1John:4:17 @ Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.

nkjv@1John:5:1 @ Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him.

nkjv@1John:5:5 @ Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

nkjv@1John:5:9 @ If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son.

nkjv@1John:5:10 @ He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son.

nkjv@2John:1:9 @ Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.

nkjv@2John:1:13 @ The children of your elect sister greet you. Amen.

nkjv@Revelation:6:5 @ When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come and see." So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.

nkjv@Revelation:6:6 @ And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine."

nkjv@Revelation:6:7 @ When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, "Come and see."

nkjv@Revelation:6:8 @ So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.

nkjv@Revelation:6:9 @ When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.

nkjv@Revelation:6:11 @ Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.

nkjv@Revelation:6:12 @ I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.

nkjv@Revelation:6:13 @ And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.

nkjv@Revelation:6:14 @ Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.

nkjv@Revelation:6:15 @ And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains,

nkjv@Revelation:6:16 @ and said to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!

nkjv@Revelation:6:17 @ For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?"

nkjv@Revelation:7:1 @ After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree.

nkjv@Revelation:7:2 @ Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea,

nkjv@Revelation:7:3 @ saying, "Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads."

nkjv@Revelation:7:4 @ And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:

nkjv@Revelation:7:5 @ of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed;

nkjv@Revelation:7:6 @ of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed;

nkjv@Revelation:7:7 @ of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed;

nkjv@Revelation:7:8 @ of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed.

nkjv@Revelation:7:9 @ After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands,

nkjv@Revelation:7:13 @ Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, "Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?"

nkjv@Revelation:7:14 @ And I said to him, "Sir, you know." So he said to me, "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

nkjv@Revelation:7:15 @ Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them.

nkjv@Revelation:7:17 @ for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

nkjv@Revelation:8:3 @ Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

nkjv@Revelation:8:4 @ And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel's hand.

nkjv@Revelation:8:7 @ The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.

nkjv@Revelation:8:8 @ Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood.

nkjv@Revelation:8:9 @ And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

nkjv@Revelation:8:10 @ Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water.

nkjv@Revelation:8:11 @ The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.

nkjv@Revelation:8:12 @ Then the fourth angel sounded: And a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night.

nkjv@Revelation:8:13 @ And I looked, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, "Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!"

nkjv@Revelation:9:2 @ And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit.

nkjv@Revelation:9:3 @ Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

nkjv@Revelation:9:4 @ They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.

nkjv@Revelation:9:5 @ And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.

nkjv@Revelation:9:7 @ The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men.

nkjv@Revelation:9:9 @ And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running into battle.

nkjv@Revelation:9:11 @ And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon.

nkjv@Revelation:9:13 @ Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

nkjv@Revelation:9:15 @ So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.

nkjv@Revelation:9:16 @ Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them.

nkjv@Revelation:9:17 @ And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone.

nkjv@Revelation:9:18 @ By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed--by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths.

nkjv@Revelation:9:20 @ But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk.

nkjv@Revelation:9:21 @ And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.

nkjv@Revelation:10:1 @ I saw still another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head, his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire.

nkjv@Revelation:10:7 @ but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.

nkjv@Revelation:10:8 @ Then the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again and said, "Go, take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the earth."

nkjv@Revelation:10:10 @ Then I took the little book out of the angel's hand and ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. But when I had eaten it, my stomach became bitter.

nkjv@Revelation:11:1 @ Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, "Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there.

nkjv@Revelation:11:4 @ These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the God of the earth.

nkjv@Revelation:11:6 @ These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.

nkjv@Revelation:11:7 @ When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them.

nkjv@Revelation:11:8 @ And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

nkjv@Revelation:11:11 @ Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them.

nkjv@Revelation:11:13 @ In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven.

nkjv@Revelation:11:15 @ Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!"

nkjv@Revelation:11:18 @ The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, And the time of the dead, that they should be judged, And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, And those who fear Your name, small and great, And should destroy those who destroy the earth."

nkjv@Revelation:11:19 @ Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.

nkjv@Revelation:12:1 @ Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.

nkjv@Revelation:12:4 @ His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.

nkjv@Revelation:12:5 @ She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne.

nkjv@Revelation:12:9 @ So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

nkjv@Revelation:12:10 @ Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.

nkjv@Revelation:12:11 @ And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

nkjv@Revelation:12:12 @ Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time."

nkjv@Revelation:12:14 @ But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

nkjv@Revelation:12:15 @ So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.

nkjv@Revelation:12:16 @ But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.

nkjv@Revelation:12:17 @ And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

nkjv@Revelation:13:1 @ Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.

nkjv@Revelation:13:2 @ Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.

nkjv@Revelation:13:3 @ And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.

nkjv@Revelation:13:8 @ All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

nkjv@Revelation:13:10 @ He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

nkjv@Revelation:13:11 @ Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.

nkjv@Revelation:13:12 @ And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

nkjv@Revelation:13:13 @ He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.

nkjv@Revelation:13:14 @ And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.

nkjv@Revelation:13:15 @ He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.

nkjv@Revelation:13:17 @ and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

nkjv@Revelation:13:18 @ Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

nkjv@Revelation:14:2 @ And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps.

nkjv@Revelation:14:5 @ And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of God.

nkjv@Revelation:14:6 @ Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth--to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people--

nkjv@Revelation:14:7 @ saying with a loud voice, "Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water."

nkjv@Revelation:14:8 @ And another angel followed, saying, "Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication."

nkjv@Revelation:14:10 @ he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.

nkjv@Revelation:14:11 @ And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name."

nkjv@Revelation:14:12 @ Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

nkjv@Revelation:14:14 @ Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle.

nkjv@Revelation:14:15 @ And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, "Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe."

nkjv@Revelation:14:17 @ Then another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.

nkjv@Revelation:14:18 @ And another angel came out from the altar, who had power over fire, and he cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe."

nkjv@Revelation:14:19 @ So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

nkjv@Revelation:14:20 @ And the winepress was trampled outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, up to the horses' bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.

nkjv@Revelation:15:1 @ Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete.

nkjv@Revelation:15:2 @ And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.

nkjv@Revelation:15:3 @ They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: "Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints!

nkjv@Revelation:15:5 @ After these things I looked, and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened.

nkjv@Revelation:15:6 @ And out of the temple came the seven angels having the seven plagues, clothed in pure bright linen, and having their chests girded with golden bands.

nkjv@Revelation:15:7 @ Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever.

nkjv@Revelation:15:8 @ The temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power, and no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.

nkjv@Revelation:16:1 @ Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, "Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God on the earth."

nkjv@Revelation:16:2 @ So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.

nkjv@Revelation:16:3 @ Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man; and every living creature in the sea died.

nkjv@Revelation:16:4 @ Then the third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.

nkjv@Revelation:16:5 @ And I heard the angel of the waters saying: "You are righteous, O Lord, The One who is and who was and who is to be, Because You have judged these things.

nkjv@Revelation:16:6 @ For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, And You have given them blood to drink. For it is their just due."

nkjv@Revelation:16:9 @ And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.

nkjv@
