'Maintain' in the Bible
Then hear thou in heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause.
Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling place, and maintain their cause,
And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel at all times, as the matter shall require:
Out of the spoils won in battles did they dedicate to maintain the house of the LORD.
Then hear thou from the heavens their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause.
Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, their prayer and their supplications, and maintain their cause, and forgive thy people which have sinned against thee.
Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.
I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.
This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.
And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.
