'Dear' in the Bible
and there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my dear Son, in whom I delight.
And a certain centurion's slave, who was dear unto him, was sick and ready to die.
But none of these things move me, neither do I count my life dear unto myself, only that I might finish my course with joy and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
Be ye therefore imitators of God, as dear children
as ye also learned of Epaphras, our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ,
who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son,
loving you so much, that we were willing to give unto you, not only the gospel of God, but even our own souls, because ye are dear unto us.
