JHVH = Satan? 2Sa24:1=1Ch21:1 & John8:44

2sa24:1 2Ch21:1 John8:44

Jehova vs God the Father

There are a good number of Wicca devotees that are exceedingly gentle and peaceful - possibly in greater proportion to Christian adherents. I know of no Wiccan Wars, but this does not dismiss they are worshiping false dieities that collect & use their spiritual power to frustrate the Plan of God the Father as executed by Christ. With Satan at the helm, the end result will necessarily be one of disaster & self destruction. As such, there are some concerns that arise when scrutinizing scripture in the context of the OT 'God of Wrath' & NT 'God the Father'.

Human Nature evolves ever so slowly, so the 'new approach' theory just doesn't hold up. With Muslims still living in pre-Christ culture, humanity's behavior on the whole is nearly on par with that of David or Abraham. How else could we relate so closely to the narrative? In any case, there resides in the Bible an unsolvable Gordian Knot created by attempting to relate Jehova to God the Father: they simply are NOT the same personality. Not by a long shot.

If this thought experiment holds up, we should also consider a study of Yahweh vs Jehova. Caananites worshiped Moloch and Ramphiem(?) & were chastised in return. This bull god Baal, Moloch, Ramphiem, and countless other names does have hooks into the concept & mention of Yahweh. With all this said, tribal man was an aggressive & bloodthirsty being, possibly needing reflective concepts of diety to have interest enough to pursue the Spiritual. In this context, these gods also have a use in bringing spiritual stragglers into higher modes of thinking & feeling.

    • Juan asked Jane for Jacob's songs
    • Is there specificity enough to assume John = Juan?

John 8

[Jhn 8:1 KJV]  Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
[Jhn 8:2 KJV] And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
[Jhn 8:3 KJV] And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
[Jhn 8:4 KJV] They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
[Jhn 8:5 KJV] Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
[Jhn 8:6 KJV]  This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with [his] finger wrote on the ground, [as though he heard them not].
[Jhn 8:7 KJV] So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
[Jhn 8:8 KJV] And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
[Jhn 8:9 KJV] And they which heard [it], being convicted by [their own] conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, [even] unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
[Jhn 8:10 KJV] When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
[Jhn 8:11 KJV]  She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
[Jhn 8:12 KJV] Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
[Jhn 8:13 KJV] The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.
[Jhn 8:14 KJV] Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, [yet] my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
[Jhn 8:15 KJV] Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
[Jhn 8:16 KJV] And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
[Jhn 8:17 KJV]  It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
[Jhn 8:18 KJV] I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.
[Jhn 8:19 KJV] Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.
[Jhn 8:20 KJV] These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.
[Jhn 8:21 KJV] Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.
[Jhn 8:22 KJV] Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
[Jhn 8:23 KJV] And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
[Jhn 8:24 KJV] I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am [he], ye shall die in your sins.
[Jhn 8:25 KJV] Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even [the same] that I said unto you from the beginning.
[Jhn 8:26 KJV] I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
[Jhn 8:27 KJV] They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
[Jhn 8:28 KJV] Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am [he], and [that] I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
[Jhn 8:29 KJV] And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
[Jhn 8:30 KJV] As he spake these words, many believed on him.
[Jhn 8:31 KJV] Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, [then] are ye my disciples indeed;
[Jhn 8:32 KJV] And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
[Jhn 8:33 KJV] They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
[Jhn 8:34 KJV] Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
[Jhn 8:35 KJV] And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: [but] the Son abideth ever.
[Jhn 8:36 KJV] If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
[Jhn 8:37 KJV] I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
[Jhn 8:38 KJV] I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
[Jhn 8:39 KJV] They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
[Jhn 8:40 KJV] But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
[Jhn 8:41 KJV] Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, [even] God.
[Jhn 8:42 KJV] Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
[Jhn 8:43 KJV] Why do ye not understand my speech? [even] because ye cannot hear my word.
[Jhn 8:44 KJV] Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

  • Jesus was at the temple in Jerusalem speaking to the Jewish leadership
  • He informs them they worship the devil, Jehova & their god is a usurper & a liar

[Jhn 8:45 KJV] And because I tell [you] the truth, ye believe me not.
[Jhn 8:46 KJV] Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
[Jhn 8:47 KJV] He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear [them] not, because ye are not of God.
[Jhn 8:48 KJV] Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
[Jhn 8:49 KJV] Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.
[Jhn 8:50 KJV] And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
[Jhn 8:51 KJV] Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
[Jhn 8:52 KJV] Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
[Jhn 8:53 KJV] Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
[Jhn 8:54 KJV] Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
[Jhn 8:55 KJV] Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.
[Jhn 8:56 KJV] Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw [it], and was glad.
[Jhn 8:57 KJV] Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
[Jhn 8:58 KJV] Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
[Jhn 8:59 KJV] Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

 

2Samuel 24

[2Sa 24:1 KJV] And again the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah.

  • Jehova & Satan used interchangeably here

[2Sa 24:2 KJV] For the king said to Joab the captain of the host, which [was] with him, Go now through all the tribes of Israel, from Dan even to Beersheba, and number ye the people, that I may know the number of the people.
[2Sa 24:3 KJV] And Joab said unto the king, Now the LORD thy God add unto the people, how many soever they be, an hundredfold, and that the eyes of my lord the king may see [it]: but why doth my lord the king delight in this thing?
[2Sa 24:4 KJV] Notwithstanding the king's word prevailed against Joab, and against the captains of the host. And Joab and the captains of the host went out from the presence of the king, to number the people of Israel.
[2Sa 24:5 KJV] And they passed over Jordan, and pitched in Aroer, on the right side of the city that [lieth] in the midst of the river of Gad, and toward Jazer:
[2Sa 24:6 KJV] Then they came to Gilead, and to the land of Tahtimhodshi; and they came to Danjaan, and about to Zidon,
[2Sa 24:7 KJV] And came to the strong hold of Tyre, and to all the cities of the Hivites, and of the Canaanites: and they went out to the south of Judah, [even] to Beersheba.
[2Sa 24:8 KJV] So when they had gone through all the land, they came to Jerusalem at the end of nine months and twenty days.
[2Sa 24:9 KJV] And Joab gave up the sum of the number of the people unto the king: and there were in Israel eight hundred thousand valiant men that drew the sword; and the men of Judah [were] five hundred thousand men.
[2Sa 24:10 KJV] And David's heart smote him after that he had numbered the people. And David said unto the LORD, I have sinned greatly in that I have done: and now, I beseech thee, O LORD, take away the iniquity of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly.
[2Sa 24:11 KJV] For when David was up in the morning, the word of the LORD came unto the prophet Gad, David's seer, saying,
[2Sa 24:12 KJV] Go and say unto David, Thus saith the LORD, I offer thee three [things]; choose thee one of them, that I may [do it] unto thee.
[2Sa 24:13 KJV] So Gad came to David, and told him, and said unto him, Shall seven years of famine come unto thee in thy land? or wilt thou flee three months before thine enemies, while they pursue thee? or that there be three days' pestilence in thy land? now advise, and see what answer I shall return to him that sent me.
[2Sa 24:14 KJV] And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let us fall now into the hand of the LORD; for his mercies [are] great: and let me not fall into the hand of man.
[2Sa 24:15 KJV] So the LORD sent a pestilence upon Israel from the morning even to the time appointed: and there died of the people from Dan even to Beersheba seventy thousand men.
[2Sa 24:16 KJV] And when the angel stretched out his hand upon Jerusalem to destroy it, the LORD repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed the people, It is enough: stay now thine hand. And the angel of the LORD was by the threshingplace of Araunah the Jebusite.
[2Sa 24:17 KJV] And David spake unto the LORD when he saw the angel that smote the people, and said, Lo, I have sinned, and I have done wickedly: but these sheep, what have they done? let thine hand, I pray thee, be against me, and against my father's house.
[2Sa 24:18 KJV] And Gad came that day to David, and said unto him, Go up, rear an altar unto the LORD in the threshingfloor of Araunah the Jebusite.
[2Sa 24:19 KJV] And David, according to the saying of Gad, went up as the LORD commanded.
[2Sa 24:20 KJV] And Araunah looked, and saw the king and his servants coming on toward him: and Araunah went out, and bowed himself before the king on his face upon the ground.
[2Sa 24:21 KJV] And Araunah said, Wherefore is my lord the king come to his servant? And David said, To buy the threshingfloor of thee, to build an altar unto the LORD, that the plague may be stayed from the people.
[2Sa 24:22 KJV] And Araunah said unto David, Let my lord the king take and offer up what [seemeth] good unto him: behold, [here be] oxen for burnt sacrifice, and threshing instruments and [other] instruments of the oxen for wood.
[2Sa 24:23 KJV] All these [things] did Araunah, [as] a king, give unto the king. And Araunah said unto the king, The LORD thy God accept thee.
[2Sa 24:24 KJV] And the king said unto Araunah, Nay; but I will surely buy [it] of thee at a price: neither will I offer burnt offerings unto the LORD my God of that which doth cost me nothing. So David bought the threshingfloor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
[2Sa 24:25 KJV] And David built there an altar unto the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD was intreated for the land, and the plague was stayed from Israel.

 

1Chronicles 21

[1Ch 21:1 KJV] And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.

  • Jehova & Satan used interchangeably here

[1Ch 21:2 KJV] And David said to Joab and to the rulers of the people, Go, number Israel from Beersheba even to Dan; and bring the number of them to me, that I may know [it].
[1Ch 21:3 KJV] And Joab answered, The LORD make his people an hundred times so many more as they [be]: but, my lord the king, [are] they not all my lord's servants? why then doth my lord require this thing? why will he be a cause of trespass to Israel?
[1Ch 21:4 KJV] Nevertheless the king's word prevailed against Joab. Wherefore Joab departed, and went throughout all Israel, and came to Jerusalem.
[1Ch 21:5 KJV] And Joab gave the sum of the number of the people unto David. And all [they of] Israel were a thousand thousand and an hundred thousand men that drew sword: and Judah [was] four hundred threescore and ten thousand men that drew sword.
[1Ch 21:6 KJV] But Levi and Benjamin counted he not among them: for the king's word was abominable to Joab.
[1Ch 21:7 KJV] And God was displeased with this thing; therefore he smote Israel.
[1Ch 21:8 KJV] And David said unto God, I have sinned greatly, because I have done this thing: but now, I beseech thee, do away the iniquity of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly.
[1Ch 21:9 KJV] And the LORD spake unto Gad, David's seer, saying,
[1Ch 21:10 KJV] Go and tell David, saying, Thus saith the LORD, I offer thee three [things]: choose thee one of them, that I may do [it] unto thee.
[1Ch 21:11 KJV] So Gad came to David, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Choose thee
[1Ch 21:12 KJV] Either three years' famine; or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that the sword of thine enemies overtaketh [thee]; or else three days the sword of the LORD, even the pestilence, in the land, and the angel of the LORD destroying throughout all the coasts of Israel. Now therefore advise thyself what word I shall bring again to him that sent me.
[1Ch 21:13 KJV] And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let me fall now into the hand of the LORD; for very great [are] his mercies: but let me not fall into the hand of man.
[1Ch 21:14 KJV] So the LORD sent pestilence upon Israel: and there fell of Israel seventy thousand men.
[1Ch 21:15 KJV] And God sent an angel unto Jerusalem to destroy it: and as he was destroying, the LORD beheld, and he repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed, It is enough, stay now thine hand. And the angel of the LORD stood by the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.
[1Ch 21:16 KJV] And David lifted up his eyes, and saw the angel of the LORD stand between the earth and the heaven, having a drawn sword in his hand stretched out over Jerusalem. Then David and the elders [of Israel, who were] clothed in sackcloth, fell upon their faces.
[1Ch 21:17 KJV] And David said unto God, [Is it] not I [that] commanded the people to be numbered? even I it is that have sinned and done evil indeed; but [as for] these sheep, what have they done? let thine hand, I pray thee, O LORD my God, be on me, and on my father's house; but not on thy people, that they should be plagued.
[1Ch 21:18 KJV] Then the angel of the LORD commanded Gad to say to David, that David should go up, and set up an altar unto the LORD in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.
[1Ch 21:19 KJV] And David went up at the saying of Gad, which he spake in the name of the LORD.
[1Ch 21:20 KJV] And Ornan turned back, and saw the angel; and his four sons with him hid themselves. Now Ornan was threshing wheat.
[1Ch 21:21 KJV] And as David came to Ornan, Ornan looked and saw David, and went out of the threshingfloor, and bowed himself to David with [his] face to the ground.
[1Ch 21:22 KJV] Then David said to Ornan, Grant me the place of [this] threshingfloor, that I may build an altar therein unto the LORD: thou shalt grant it me for the full price: that the plague may be stayed from the people.
[1Ch 21:23 KJV] And Ornan said unto David, Take [it] to thee, and let my lord the king do [that which is] good in his eyes: lo, I give [thee] the oxen [also] for burnt offerings, and the threshing instruments for wood, and the wheat for the meat offering; I give it all.
[1Ch 21:24 KJV] And king David said to Ornan, Nay; but I will verily buy it for the full price: for I will not take [that] which [is] thine for the LORD, nor offer burnt offerings without cost.
[1Ch 21:25 KJV] So David gave to Ornan for the place six hundred shekels of gold by weight.
[1Ch 21:26 KJV] And David built there an altar unto the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings, and called upon the LORD; and he answered him from heaven by fire upon the altar of burnt offering.
[1Ch 21:27 KJV] And the LORD commanded the angel; and he put up his sword again into the sheath thereof.
[1Ch 21:28 KJV] At that time when David saw that the LORD had answered him in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite, then he sacrificed there.
[1Ch 21:29 KJV] For the tabernacle of the LORD, which Moses made in the wilderness, and the altar of the burnt offering, [were] at that season in the high place at Gibeon.
[1Ch 21:30 KJV] But David could not go before it to enquire of God: for he was afraid because of the sword of the angel of the LORD.

 

1 Kings

[1Ki 22:1 KJV] And they continued three years without war between Syria and Israel.
[1Ki 22:2 KJV] And it came to pass in the third year, that Jehoshaphat the king of Judah came down to the king of Israel.
[1Ki 22:3 KJV] And the king of Israel said unto his servants, Know ye that Ramoth in Gilead [is] ours, and we [be] still, [and] take it not out of the hand of the king of Syria?
[1Ki 22:4 KJV] And he said unto Jehoshaphat, Wilt thou go with me to battle to Ramothgilead? And Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, I [am] as thou [art], my people as thy people, my horses as thy horses.
[1Ki 22:5 KJV] And Jehoshaphat said unto the king of Israel, Enquire, I pray thee, at the word of the LORD to day.
[1Ki 22:6 KJV] Then the king of Israel gathered the prophets together, about four hundred men, and said unto them, Shall I go against Ramothgilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And they said, Go up; for the Lord shall deliver [it] into the hand of the king.
[1Ki 22:7 KJV] And Jehoshaphat said, [Is there] not here a prophet of the LORD besides, that we might enquire of him?
[1Ki 22:8 KJV] And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, [There is] yet one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may enquire of the LORD: but I hate him; for he doth not prophesy good concerning me, but evil. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so.
[1Ki 22:9 KJV] Then the king of Israel called an officer, and said, Hasten [hither] Micaiah the son of Imlah.
[1Ki 22:10 KJV] And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah sat each on his throne, having put on their robes, in a void place in the entrance of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets prophesied before them.
[1Ki 22:11 KJV] And Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah made him horns of iron: and he said, Thus saith the LORD, With these shalt thou push the Syrians, until thou have consumed them.
[1Ki 22:12 KJV] And all the prophets prophesied so, saying, Go up to Ramothgilead, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver [it] into the king's hand.
[1Ki 22:13 KJV] And the messenger that was gone to call Micaiah spake unto him, saying, Behold now, the words of the prophets [declare] good unto the king with one mouth: let thy word, I pray thee, be like the word of one of them, and speak [that which is] good.
[1Ki 22:14 KJV] And Micaiah said, [As] the LORD liveth, what the LORD saith unto me, that will I speak.
[1Ki 22:15 KJV] So he came to the king. And the king said unto him, Micaiah, shall we go against Ramothgilead to battle, or shall we forbear? And he answered him, Go, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver [it] into the hand of the king.
[1Ki 22:16 KJV] And the king said unto him, How many times shall I adjure thee that thou tell me nothing but [that which is] true in the name of the LORD?
[1Ki 22:17 KJV] And he said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master: let them return every man to his house in peace.
[1Ki 22:18 KJV] And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would prophesy no good concerning me, but evil?
[1Ki 22:19 KJV] And he said, Hear thou therefore the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left.
[1Ki 22:20 KJV] And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner.
[1Ki 22:21 KJV] And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him.
[1Ki 22:22 KJV] And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade [him], and prevail also: go forth, and do so.

  • God the Father would not sanctionion angels to lie to man
  • nor would the desire exist within Him

[1Ki 22:23 KJV] Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee.
[1Ki 22:24 KJV] But Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near, and smote Micaiah on the cheek, and said, Which way went the Spirit of the LORD from me to speak unto thee?
[1Ki 22:25 KJV] And Micaiah said, Behold, thou shalt see in that day, when thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself.
[1Ki 22:26 KJV] And the king of Israel said, Take Micaiah, and carry him back unto Amon the governor of the city, and to Joash the king's son;
[1Ki 22:27 KJV] And say, Thus saith the king, Put this [fellow] in the prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and with water of affliction, until I come in peace.
[1Ki 22:28 KJV] And Micaiah said, If thou return at all in peace, the LORD hath not spoken by me. And he said, Hearken, O people, every one of you.
[1Ki 22:29 KJV] So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to Ramothgilead.
[1Ki 22:30 KJV] And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself, and enter into the battle; but put thou on thy robes. And the king of Israel disguised himself, and went into the battle.
[1Ki 22:31 KJV] But the king of Syria commanded his thirty and two captains that had rule over his chariots, saying, Fight neither with small nor great, save only with the king of Israel.
[1Ki 22:32 KJV] And it came to pass, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, Surely it [is] the king of Israel. And they turned aside to fight against him: and Jehoshaphat cried out.
[1Ki 22:33 KJV] And it came to pass, when the captains of the chariots perceived that it [was] not the king of Israel, that they turned back from pursuing him.
[1Ki 22:34 KJV] And a [certain] man drew a bow at a venture, and smote the king of Israel between the joints of the harness: wherefore he said unto the driver of his chariot, Turn thine hand, and carry me out of the host; for I am wounded.
[1Ki 22:35 KJV] And the battle increased that day: and the king was stayed up in his chariot against the Syrians, and died at even: and the blood ran out of the wound into the midst of the chariot.
[1Ki 22:36 KJV] And there went a proclamation throughout the host about the going down of the sun, saying, Every man to his city, and every man to his own country.
[1Ki 22:37 KJV] So the king died, and was brought to Samaria; and they buried the king in Samaria.
[1Ki 22:38 KJV] And [one] washed the chariot in the pool of Samaria; and the dogs licked up his blood; and they washed his armour; according unto the word of the LORD which he spake.
[1Ki 22:39 KJV] Now the rest of the acts of Ahab, and all that he did, and the ivory house which he made, and all the cities that he built, [are] they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
[1Ki 22:40 KJV] So Ahab slept with his fathers; and Ahaziah his son reigned in his stead.
[1Ki 22:41 KJV] And Jehoshaphat the son of Asa began to reign over Judah in the fourth year of Ahab king of Israel.
[1Ki 22:42 KJV] Jehoshaphat [was] thirty and five years old when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name [was] Azubah the daughter of Shilhi.
[1Ki 22:43 KJV] And he walked in all the ways of Asa his father; he turned not aside from it, doing [that which was] right in the eyes of the LORD: nevertheless the high places were not taken away; [for] the people offered and burnt incense yet in the high places.
[1Ki 22:44 KJV] And Jehoshaphat made peace with the king of Israel.
[1Ki 22:45 KJV] Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, and his might that he shewed, and how he warred, [are] they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
[1Ki 22:46 KJV] And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.
[1Ki 22:47 KJV] [There was] then no king in Edom: a deputy [was] king.
[1Ki 22:48 KJV] Jehoshaphat made ships of Tharshish to go to Ophir for gold: but they went not; for the ships were broken at Eziongeber.
[1Ki 22:49 KJV] Then said Ahaziah the son of Ahab unto Jehoshaphat, Let my servants go with thy servants in the ships. But Jehoshaphat would not.
[1Ki 22:50 KJV] And Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father: and Jehoram his son reigned in his stead.
[1Ki 22:51 KJV] Ahaziah the son of Ahab began to reign over Israel in Samaria the seventeenth year of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, and reigned two years over Israel.
[1Ki 22:52 KJV] And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of his father, and in the way of his mother, and in the way of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin:
[1Ki 22:53 KJV] For he served Baal, and worshipped him, and provoked to anger the LORD God of Israel, according to all that his father had done.

 

 

Isiah 1

[Isa 1:1 KJV] The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, [and] Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

  • Isiah had a vision of the death of Christ & who was the authority that executed it

[Isa 1:2 KJV] Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.
[Isa 1:3 KJV] The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: [but] Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.
[Isa 1:4 KJV] Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.
[Isa 1:5 KJV] Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.
[Isa 1:6 KJV] From the sole of the foot even unto the head [there is] no soundness in it; [but] wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.
[Isa 1:7 KJV] Your country [is] desolate, your cities [are] burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and [it is] desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
[Isa 1:8 KJV] And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
[Isa 1:9 KJV] Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, [and] we should have been like unto Gomorrah.
[Isa 1:10 KJV] Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
[Isa 1:11 KJV] To what purpose [is] the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
[Isa 1:12 KJV] When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?
[Isa 1:13 KJV] Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; [it is] iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
[Isa 1:14 KJV] Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear [them].
[Isa 1:15 KJV] And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
[Isa 1:16 KJV] Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
[Isa 1:17 KJV] Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
[Isa 1:18 KJV] Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
[Isa 1:19 KJV] If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
[Isa 1:20 KJV] But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken [it].
[Isa 1:21 KJV] How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
[Isa 1:22 KJV] Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
[Isa 1:23 KJV] Thy princes [are] rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.
[Isa 1:24 KJV] Therefore saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies:
[Isa 1:25 KJV] And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin:
[Isa 1:26 KJV] And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.
[Isa 1:27 KJV] Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.
[Isa 1:28 KJV] And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners [shall be] together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed.
[Isa 1:29 KJV] For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen.
[Isa 1:30 KJV] For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water.
[Isa 1:31 KJV] And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench [them].

 

Isiah 45

[Isa 45:1 KJV] Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;
[Isa 45:2 KJV] I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
[Isa 45:3 KJV] And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call [thee] by thy name, [am] the God of Israel.
[Isa 45:4 KJV] For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.
[Isa 45:5 KJV] I [am] the LORD, and [there is] none else, [there is] no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
[Isa 45:6 KJV] That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that [there is] none beside me. I [am] the LORD, and [there is] none else.
[Isa 45:7 KJV] I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these [things].

  • God has no darkness within him

[Isa 45:8 KJV] Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.
[Isa 45:9 KJV] Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! [Let] the potsherd [strive] with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?
[Isa 45:10 KJV] Woe unto him that saith unto [his] father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?
[Isa 45:11 KJV] Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.
[Isa 45:12 KJV] I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, [even] my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.
[Isa 45:13 KJV] I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the LORD of hosts.
[Isa 45:14 KJV] Thus saith the LORD, The labour of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come after thee; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee, [saying], Surely God [is] in thee; and [there is] none else, [there is] no God.
[Isa 45:15 KJV] Verily thou [art] a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour.
[Isa 45:16 KJV] They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together [that are] makers of idols.
[Isa 45:17 KJV] [But] Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.
[Isa 45:18 KJV] For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I [am] the LORD; and [there is] none else.
[Isa 45:19 KJV] I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.
[Isa 45:20 KJV] Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye [that are] escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god [that] cannot save.
[Isa 45:21 KJV] Tell ye, and bring [them] near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? [who] hath told it from that time? [have] not I the LORD? and [there is] no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; [there is] none beside me.
[Isa 45:22 KJV] Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I [am] God, and [there is] none else.
[Isa 45:23 KJV] I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth [in] righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
[Isa 45:24 KJV] Surely, shall [one] say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: [even] to him shall [men] come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.
[Isa 45:25 KJV] In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

 

 

Isiah 53

[Isa 53:1 KJV] Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

  • Isiah sees that Jesus KNOWS who Jehova really is
  • the LORD reaches out to crush him
  • Jesus has come to face this false god

[Isa 53:2 KJV] For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, [there is] no beauty that we should desire him.
[Isa 53:3 KJV] He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were [our] faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
[Isa 53:4 KJV] Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
[Isa 53:5 KJV] But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
[Isa 53:6 KJV] All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
[Isa 53:7 KJV] He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
[Isa 53:8 KJV] He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
[Isa 53:9 KJV] And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither [was any] deceit in his mouth.
[Isa 53:10 KJV] Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put [him] to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see [his] seed, he shall prolong [his] days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

  • speaking of the LORD, Isiah sees that Jehova took pleasure in crushing Christ

[Isa 53:11 KJV] He shall see of the travail of his soul, [and] shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
[Isa 53:12 KJV] Therefore will I divide him [a portion] with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amos 5

[Amo 5:1 KJV] Hear ye this word which I take up against you, [even] a lamentation, O house of Israel.
[Amo 5:2 KJV] The virgin of Israel is fallen; she shall no more rise: she is forsaken upon her land; [there is] none to raise her up.
[Amo 5:3 KJV] For thus saith the Lord GOD; The city that went out [by] a thousand shall leave an hundred, and that which went forth [by] an hundred shall leave ten, to the house of Israel.
[Amo 5:4 KJV] For thus saith the LORD unto the house of Israel, Seek ye me, and ye shall live:
[Amo 5:5 KJV] But seek not Bethel, nor enter into Gilgal, and pass not to Beersheba: for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Bethel shall come to nought.
[Amo 5:6 KJV] Seek the LORD, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour [it], and [there be] none to quench [it] in Bethel.
[Amo 5:7 KJV] Ye who turn judgment to wormwood, and leave off righteousness in the earth,
[Amo 5:8 KJV] [Seek him] that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD [is] his name:
[Amo 5:9 KJV] That strengtheneth the spoiled against the strong, so that the spoiled shall come against the fortress.
[Amo 5:10 KJV] They hate him that rebuketh in the gate, and they abhor him that speaketh uprightly.
[Amo 5:11 KJV] Forasmuch therefore as your treading [is] upon the poor, and ye take from him burdens of wheat: ye have built houses of hewn stone, but ye shall not dwell in them; ye have planted pleasant vineyards, but ye shall not drink wine of them.
[Amo 5:12 KJV] For I know your manifold transgressions and your mighty sins: they afflict the just, they take a bribe, and they turn aside the poor in the gate [from their right].
[Amo 5:13 KJV] Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it [is] an evil time.
[Amo 5:14 KJV] Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken.
[Amo 5:15 KJV] Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.
[Amo 5:16 KJV] Therefore the LORD, the God of hosts, the Lord, saith thus; Wailing [shall be] in all streets; and they shall say in all the highways, Alas! alas! and they shall call the husbandman to mourning, and such as are skilful of lamentation to wailing.
[Amo 5:17 KJV] And in all vineyards [shall be] wailing: for I will pass through thee, saith the LORD.
[Amo 5:18 KJV] Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end [is] it for you? the day of the LORD [is] darkness, and not light.
[Amo 5:19 KJV] As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.
[Amo 5:20 KJV] [Shall] not the day of the LORD [be] darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?
[Amo 5:21 KJV] I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.
[Amo 5:22 KJV] Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept [them]: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.
[Amo 5:23 KJV] Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.
[Amo 5:24 KJV] But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.
[Amo 5:25 KJV] Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?
[Amo 5:26 KJV] But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.
[Amo 5:27 KJV] Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the LORD, whose name [is] The God of hosts.

 

 

1 Sa 16:23

[1Sa 16:1 KJV] And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.
[1Sa 16:2 KJV] And Samuel said, How can I go? if Saul hear [it], he will kill me. And the LORD said, Take an heifer with thee, and say, I am come to sacrifice to the LORD.
[1Sa 16:3 KJV] And call Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will shew thee what thou shalt do: and thou shalt anoint unto me [him] whom I name unto thee.
[1Sa 16:4 KJV] And Samuel did that which the LORD spake, and came to Bethlehem. And the elders of the town trembled at his coming, and said, Comest thou peaceably?
[1Sa 16:5 KJV] And he said, Peaceably: I am come to sacrifice unto the LORD: sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice. And he sanctified Jesse and his sons, and called them to the sacrifice.
[1Sa 16:6 KJV] And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the LORD'S anointed [is] before him.
[1Sa 16:7 KJV] But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for [the LORD seeth] not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.
[1Sa 16:8 KJV] Then Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.
[1Sa 16:9 KJV] Then Jesse made Shammah to pass by. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.
[1Sa 16:10 KJV] Again, Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. And Samuel said unto Jesse, The LORD hath not chosen these.
[1Sa 16:11 KJV] And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all [thy] children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither.
[1Sa 16:12 KJV] And he sent, and brought him in. Now he [was] ruddy, [and] withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this [is] he.
[1Sa 16:13 KJV] Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.
[1Sa 16:14 KJV] But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.
[1Sa 16:15 KJV] And Saul's servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee.
[1Sa 16:16 KJV] Let our lord now command thy servants, [which are] before thee, to seek out a man, [who is] a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well.
[1Sa 16:17 KJV] And Saul said unto his servants, Provide me now a man that can play well, and bring [him] to me.
[1Sa 16:18 KJV] Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, [that is] cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the LORD [is] with him.
[1Sa 16:19 KJV] Wherefore Saul sent messengers unto Jesse, and said, Send me David thy son, which [is] with the sheep.
[1Sa 16:20 KJV] And Jesse took an ass [laden] with bread, and a bottle of wine, and a kid, and sent [them] by David his son unto Saul.
[1Sa 16:21 KJV] And David came to Saul, and stood before him: and he loved him greatly; and he became his armourbearer.
[1Sa 16:22 KJV] And Saul sent to Jesse, saying, Let David, I pray thee, stand before me; for he hath found favour in my sight.
[1Sa 16:23 KJV] And it came to pass, when the [evil] spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.

 

 

 

John 5

[Jhn 5:1 KJV] After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
[Jhn 5:2 KJV] Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep [market] a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
[Jhn 5:3 KJV] In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
[Jhn 5:4 KJV] For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
[Jhn 5:5 KJV] And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
[Jhn 5:6 KJV] When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time [in that case], he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
[Jhn 5:7 KJV] The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
[Jhn 5:8 KJV] Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
[Jhn 5:9 KJV] And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.

[Jhn 5:10 KJV] The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry [thy] bed.
[Jhn 5:11 KJV] He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
[Jhn 5:12 KJV] Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?
[Jhn 5:13 KJV] And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in [that] place.
[Jhn 5:14 KJV] Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
[Jhn 5:15 KJV] The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.
[Jhn 5:16 KJV] And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
[Jhn 5:17 KJV] But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
[Jhn 5:18 KJV] Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
[Jhn 5:19 KJV] Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
[Jhn 5:20 KJV] For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
[Jhn 5:21 KJV] For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth [them]; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
[Jhn 5:22 KJV] For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
[Jhn 5:23 KJV] That all [men] should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
[Jhn 5:24 KJV] Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
[Jhn 5:25 KJV] Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
[Jhn 5:26 KJV] For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
[Jhn 5:27 KJV] And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
[Jhn 5:28 KJV] Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
[Jhn 5:29 KJV] And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
[Jhn 5:30 KJV] I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
[Jhn 5:31 KJV] If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
[Jhn 5:32 KJV] There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
[Jhn 5:33 KJV] Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.
[Jhn 5:34 KJV] But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.
[Jhn 5:35 KJV] He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.
[Jhn 5:36 KJV] But I have greater witness than [that] of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
[Jhn 5:37 KJV] And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.

  • Jesus tells the Jews(?) they have never seen nor heard the FATHER because they worship Jehova, the aforementioned Satan, the Deciever

[Jhn 5:38 KJV] And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.
[Jhn 5:39 KJV] Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
[Jhn 5:40 KJV] And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
[Jhn 5:41 KJV] I receive not honour from men.
[Jhn 5:42 KJV] But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
[Jhn 5:43 KJV] I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
[Jhn 5:44 KJV] How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that [cometh] from God only?
[Jhn 5:45 KJV] Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is [one] that accuseth you, [even] Moses, in whom ye trust.
[Jhn 5:46 KJV] For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
[Jhn 5:47 KJV] But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

 

 

Exodus 15

[Exo 15:1 KJV] Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

[Exo 15:6 KJV] Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.
[Exo 15:7 KJV] And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, [which] consumed them as stubble.
[Exo 15:8 KJV] And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, [and] the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.

[Exo 15:11 KJV] Who [is] like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who [is] like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful [in] praises, doing wonders?

[Exo 15:12 KJV] Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.
[Exo 15:13 KJV] Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people [which] thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided [them] in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.
[Exo 15:14 KJV] The people shall hear, [and] be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.
[Exo 15:15 KJV] Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away.
[Exo 15:16 KJV] Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be [as] still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, [which] thou hast purchased.
[Exo 15:17 KJV] Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, [in] the place, O LORD, [which] thou hast made for thee to dwell in, [in] the Sanctuary, O Lord, [which] thy hands have established.
[Exo 15:18 KJV] The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.
[Exo 15:19 KJV] For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry [land] in the midst of the sea.
[Exo 15:20 KJV] And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
[Exo 15:21 KJV] And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

[Exo 15:23 KJV] And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they [were] bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.
[Exo 15:24 KJV] And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?
[Exo 15:25 KJV] And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, [which] when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,
[Exo 15:26 KJV] And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I [am] the LORD that healeth thee.
[Exo 15:27 KJV] And they came to Elim, where [were] twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters.

 

 

Luke 24

[Luk 24:1 KJV] Now upon the first [day] of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain [others] with them.
[Luk 24:2 KJV] And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
[Luk 24:3 KJV] And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
[Luk 24:4 KJV] And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
[Luk 24:5 KJV] And as they were afraid, and bowed down [their] faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
[Luk 24:6 KJV] He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
[Luk 24:7 KJV] Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
[Luk 24:8 KJV] And they remembered his words,
[Luk 24:9 KJV] And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.
[Luk 24:10 KJV]  It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary [the mother] of James, and other [women that were] with them, which told these things unto the apostles.
[Luk 24:11 KJV] And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.
[Luk 24:12 KJV] Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.
[Luk 24:13 KJV] And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem [about] threescore furlongs.
[Luk 24:14 KJV] And they talked together of all these things which had happened.
[Luk 24:15 KJV] And it came to pass, that, while they communed [together] and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.
[Luk 24:16 KJV] But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.
[Luk 24:17 KJV] And he said unto them, What manner of communications [are] these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?
[Luk 24:18 KJV] And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?
[Luk 24:19 KJV] And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:
[Luk 24:20 KJV] And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.
[Luk 24:21 KJV] But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.
[Luk 24:22 KJV] Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;
[Luk 24:23 KJV] And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.
[Luk 24:24 KJV] And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found [it] even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
[Luk 24:25 KJV] Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
[Luk 24:26 KJV] Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
[Luk 24:27 KJV] And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
[Luk 24:28 KJV] And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.
[Luk 24:29 KJV] But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.
[Luk 24:30 KJV] And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed [it], and brake, and gave to them.
[Luk 24:31 KJV] And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
[Luk 24:32 KJV] And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?
[Luk 24:33 KJV] And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,
[Luk 24:34 KJV] Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.
[Luk 24:35 KJV] And they told what things [were done] in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.
[Luk 24:36 KJV] And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace [be] unto you.
[Luk 24:37 KJV] But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
[Luk 24:38 KJV] And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
[Luk 24:39 KJV] Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
[Luk 24:40 KJV] And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them [his] hands and [his] feet.
[Luk 24:41 KJV] And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?
[Luk 24:42 KJV] And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
[Luk 24:43 KJV] And he took [it], and did eat before them.
[Luk 24:44 KJV] And he said unto them, These [are] the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and [in] the prophets, and [in] the psalms, concerning me.
[Luk 24:45 KJV] Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
[Luk 24:46 KJV] And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
[Luk 24:47 KJV] And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
[Luk 24:48 KJV] And ye are witnesses of these things.
[Luk 24:49 KJV] And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
[Luk 24:50 KJV] And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
[Luk 24:51 KJV] And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
[Luk 24:52 KJV] And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
[Luk 24:53 KJV] And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.

Deuteronomy 31

[Deu 31:1 KJV] And Moses went and spake these words unto all Israel.
[Deu 31:2 KJV] And he said unto them, I [am] an hundred and twenty years old this day; I can no more go out and come in: also the LORD hath said unto me, Thou shalt not go over this Jordan.
[Deu 31:3 KJV] The LORD thy God, he will go over before thee, [and] he will destroy these nations from before thee, and thou shalt possess them: [and] Joshua, he shall go over before thee, as the LORD hath said.
[Deu 31:4 KJV] And the LORD shall do unto them as he did to Sihon and to Og, kings of the Amorites, and unto the land of them, whom he destroyed.
[Deu 31:5 KJV] And the LORD shall give them up before your face, that ye may do unto them according unto all the commandments which I have commanded you.
[Deu 31:6 KJV] Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
[Deu 31:7 KJV] And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou must go with this people unto the land which the LORD hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it.
[Deu 31:8 KJV] And the LORD, he [it is] that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.
[Deu 31:9 KJV] And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it unto the priests the sons of Levi, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and unto all the elders of Israel.
[Deu 31:10 KJV] And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of [every] seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles,
[Deu 31:11 KJV] When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing.
[Deu 31:12 KJV] Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that [is] within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:
[Deu 31:13 KJV] And [that] their children, which have not known [any thing], may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.
[Deu 31:14 KJV] And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thy days approach that thou must die: call Joshua, and present yourselves in the tabernacle of the congregation, that I may give him a charge. And Moses and Joshua went, and presented themselves in the tabernacle of the congregation.
[Deu 31:15 KJV] And the LORD appeared in the tabernacle in a pillar of a cloud: and the pillar of the cloud stood over the door of the tabernacle.
[Deu 31:16 KJV] And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go [to be] among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them.
[Deu 31:17 KJV] Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that day, Are not these evils come upon us, because our God [is] not among us?
[Deu 31:18 KJV] And I will surely hide my face in that day for all the evils which they shall have wrought, in that they are turned unto other gods.
[Deu 31:19 KJV] Now therefore write ye this song for you, and teach it the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel.
[Deu 31:20 KJV] For when I shall have brought them into the land which I sware unto their fathers, that floweth with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen fat; then will they turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and break my covenant.
[Deu 31:21 KJV] And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I know their imagination which they go about, even now, before I have brought them into the land which I sware.
[Deu 31:22 KJV] Moses therefore wrote this song the same day, and taught it the children of Israel.
[Deu 31:23 KJV] And he gave Joshua the son of Nun a charge, and said, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou shalt bring the children of Israel into the land which I sware unto them: and I will be with thee.
[Deu 31:24 KJV] And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this law in a book, until they were finished,
[Deu 31:25 KJV] That Moses commanded the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, saying,
[Deu 31:26 KJV] Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee.
[Deu 31:27 KJV] For I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the LORD; and how much more after my death?
[Deu 31:28 KJV] Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them.
[Deu 31:29 KJV] For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt [yourselves], and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands.
[Deu 31:30 KJV] And Moses spake in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song, until they were ended.
