'Bidden' in the Bible
But on their giving the answer that Jesus had bidden them give, they let them take it.
"I can of my own self do nothing. As I am bidden, so I judge; and mine is a just judgement, because it is not my own will that guides me, but the will of Him who sent me.
And I know that His command is the Life of the Ages. What therefore I speak, I speak just as the Father has bidden me."
And there was given to each of them a long white robe, and they were bidden to wait patiently for a short time longer, until the full number of their fellow bondservants should also complete--namely of their brethren who were soon to be killed just as they had been.
