3670

Then the man Elkanah went up with all his household to offer to the LORD the yearly sacrifice and pay his vow.

He said to them, "What kind of man was he who came up to meet you and spoke these words to you?"

3675

Elkanah her husband said to her, "Do what seems best to you Remain until you have weaned him; only may the LORD confirm His word." So the woman remained and nursed her son until she weaned him.

3676

When she saw that she was determined to go with her, she said no more to her.

3677

"Will you steal, murder, and commit adultery and swear falsely, and offer sacrifices to Baal and walk after other gods that you have not known,

Now when she had weaned him, she took him up with her, with a three-year-old bull and one ephah of flour and a jug of wine, and brought him to the house of the LORD in Shiloh, although the child was young.

3679

"Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle shall remain in the land which Moses gave you beyond the Jordan, but you shall cross before your brothers in battle array, all your valiant warriors, and shall help them,

3680

"As a well keeps its waters fresh, So she keeps fresh her wickedness Violence and destruction are heard in her; Sickness and wounds are ever before Me.

3682

"Since you have taken My silver and My gold, brought My precious treasures to your temples,

3683

"Remember the word which You commanded Your servant Moses, saying, 'If you are unfaithful I will scatter you among the peoples;

3684

He divided his forces against them by night, he and his servants, and defeated them, and pursued them as far as Hobah, which is north of Damascus.

3685

3689

Then Elisha said to him, "Go, say to him, 'You will surely recover,' but the LORD has shown me that he will certainly die."

3692

Then Saul said to his servant, "Well said; come, let us go." So they went to the city where the man of God was.

3693

You who fear the LORD, praise Him; All you descendants of Jacob, glorify Him, And stand in awe of Him, all you descendants of Israel.

3694

"With Him are wisdom and might; To Him belong counsel and understanding.

3696

But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose.

3697

So the Pharisees said to one another, "You see that you are not doing any good; look, the world has gone after Him."

3698

"However, there shall be between you and it a distance of about 2,000 cubits by measure. Do not come near it, that you may know the way by which you shall go, for you have not passed this way before."

3699

would you therefore wait until they were grown? Would you therefore refrain from marrying? No, my daughters; for it is harder for me than for you, for the hand of the LORD has gone forth against me."

3700

But we did not yield in subjection to them for even an hour, so that the truth of the gospel would remain with you.

3701

But the LORD struck Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram's wife.

3702

"But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me.

3703

who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him.

3704

Indeed, it is useless to spread the baited net In the sight of any bird;

3705

But now finish doing it also, so that just as there was the readiness to desire it, so there may be also the completion of it by your ability.

3706

So he returned from following him, and took the pair of oxen and sacrificed them and boiled their flesh with the implements of the oxen, and gave it to the people and they ate. Then he arose and followed Elijah and ministered to him.

3707

"Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, saying, 'The LORD your God gives you rest and will give you this land.'

3708

but only, they kept hearing, "He who once persecuted us is now preaching the faith which he once tried to destroy."

3709

Throwing him into convulsions, the unclean spirit cried out with a loud voice and came out of him.

3710

"Other seeds fell into the good soil, and as they grew up and increased, they yielded a crop and produced thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold."

3711

And they were glorifying God because of me.

3712

For it is not he who commends himself that is approved, but he whom the Lord commends.

3713

"Though you build high like the eagle, Though you set your nest among the stars, From there I will bring you down," declares the LORD.

3714

"From the blood of the slain, from the fat of the mighty, The bow of Jonathan did not turn back, And the sword of Saul did not return empty.

3715

"Then the trees said to the fig tree, 'You come, reign over us!'

3716

"They will fight against you, but they will not overcome you, for I am with you to deliver you," declares the LORD.

3717

If others share the right over you, do we not more? Nevertheless, we did not use this right, but we endure all things so that we will cause no hindrance to the gospel of Christ.

3718

'See, I have placed the land before you; go in and possess the land which the LORD swore to give to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to them and their descendants after them.'

3719

The sons of Israel did so, and some gathered much and some little.

3720

"Just as we obeyed Moses in all things, so we will obey you; only may the LORD your God be with you as He was with Moses.

3721

(For there were about five thousand men.) And He said to His disciples, "Have them sit down to eat in groups of about fifty each."

3722

On the other hand, I am writing a new commandment to you, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true Light is already shining.

3723

So then those who are of faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer.

3724

"In that day," declares the LORD, "I will assemble the lame And gather the outcasts, Even those whom I have afflicted.

3725

So Jesus then said to them plainly, "Lazarus is dead,

3726

"Oh that there were one among you who would shut the gates, that you might not uselessly kindle fire on My altar! I am not pleased with you," says the LORD of hosts, "nor will I accept an offering from you.

3727

As they fled from before Israel, while they were at the descent of Beth-horon, the LORD threw large stones from heaven on them as far as Azekah, and they died; there were more who died from the hailstones than those whom the sons of Israel killed with the sword.

3730

"We have acted very corruptly against You and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the ordinances which You commanded Your servant Moses.
