Mt18:1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except all of you be converted, and become as little children, all of you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Mt11:28 Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Mk5:25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
5:26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing improved, but rather grew worse,
5:27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
5:28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
5:29 And immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
5:30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
5:31 And his disciples said unto him, You see the multitude thronging you, and says you, Who touched me?
5:32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
5:33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
5:34 And he said unto her, Daughter, your faith has made you whole; go in peace, and be whole of your plague.

10:36 And he said unto them, What would all of you that I should do for you?
10:37 They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on your right hand, and the other on your left hand, in your glory.
10:38 But Jesus said unto them, All of you know not what all of you ask: can all of you drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?
10:39 And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, All of you shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized likewise shall all of you be baptized:
10:40 But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.
10:41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James and John.
10:42 But Jesus called them to him, and says unto them, All of you know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.
10:43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:
10:44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
10:45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
Lk1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
1:27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
1:28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, you that are highly favoured, the Lord is with you: blessed are you among women.
1:29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, (o. logos) and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
1:30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for you have found favour with God.
1:31 And, behold, you shall conceive in your womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call his name JESUS.
1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
1:33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
1:34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Spirit (o. pneuma) shall come upon you, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow you: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of you shall be called the Son of God.
1:36 And, behold, your cousin Elisabeth, she has also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
1:37 For with God nothing (o. rhema) shall be impossible.
1:38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to your word. (o. rhema) And the angel departed from her.
Lk6:41 And why behold you the splinter that is in your brother's eye, but perceive not the beam that is in yours own eye?
6:42 Either how can you say to your brother, Brother, let me pull out the splinter that is in yours eye, when you yourself behold not the beam that is in yours own eye? You hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of yours own eye, and then shall you see clearly to pull out the splinter that is in your brother's eye.
Lk14:8 When you are bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than you be bidden of him;
14:9 And he that bade you and him come and say to you, Give this man place; and you begin with shame to take the low room.
14:10 But when you are bidden, go and sit down in the low room; that when he that bade you comes, he may say unto you, Friend, go up higher: then shall you have worship in the presence of them that sit to eat with you.
14:11 For whosoever exalts himself shall be brought low; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted.
Lk18:10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank you, that I am not as other men are, extortionists, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
18:12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
18:13 And the publican, standing far off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but stroke upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
18:14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalts himself shall be brought low; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted.
Mk9:14 And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.
9:15 And immediately all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.
9:16 And he asked the scribes, What question all of you with them?
9:17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto you my son, which has a dumb spirit; (o. pneuma)
9:18 And where ever he takes him, he tears him: and he foams, and gnashes with his teeth, and pins away: and I spoke to your disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.
9:19 He answers him, and says, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.
9:20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, immediately the spirit (o. pneuma) tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.
9:21 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.
9:22 And frequently it has cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if you can do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
9:23 Jesus said unto him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.
9:24 And immediately the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help you mine unbelief.
9:25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, (o. pneuma) saying unto him, You dumb and deaf spirit, (o. pneuma) I charge you, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
9:26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.
9:27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.
9:28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?
9:29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
Dt8:1 All the commandments which I command you this day shall all of you observe to do, that all of you may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the Jehovah swore unto your fathers.
8:2 And you shall remember all the way which the Jehovah your God led you these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you, and to prove you, to know what was in yours heart, whether you would keep his commandments, or no.
8:3 And he humbled you, and suffered you to hunger, and fed you with manna, which you knew not, neither did your fathers know; that he might make you know that man does not live by bread only, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of the Jehovah does man live.
Dt8:16 Who fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your fathers knew not, that he might humble you, and that he might prove you, to do you good at your latter end;
1Sm2:1 And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoices in the Jehovah, mine horn is exalted in the Jehovah: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in your salvation.
2:2 There is none holy as the Jehovah: for there is none beside you: neither is there any rock like our God.
2:3 Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the Jehovah is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.
2:4 The bows of the mighty men are broken, and they that stumbled are girded with strength.
2:5 They that were full have hired out themselves for bread; and they that were hungry ceased: so that the barren has born seven; and she that has many children is waxed feeble.
2:6 The Jehovah kills, and makes alive: he brings down to the grave, and brings up.
2:7 The Jehovah makes poor, and makes rich: he brings low, and lifts up.
Pr15:33 The fear of the Jehovah is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
Pr16:19 Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.
Pr22:4 By humility and the fear of the Jehovah are riches, and honour, and life.
Pr29:23 A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.
Jm4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, all of you sinners; and purify your hearts, all of you double minded.
4:9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
1느25:2 And there was a man in Maon, whose possessions were in Carmel; and the man was very great, and he had three thousand sheep, and a thousand goats: and he was shearing his sheep in Carmel.
25:3 Now the name of the man was Nabal; and the name of his wife Abigail: and she was a woman of good understanding, and of a beautiful countenance: but the man was rude and evil in his doings; and he was of the house of Caleb.
25:4 And David heard in the wilderness that Nabal did shear his sheep.
25:5 And David sent out ten young men, and David said unto the young men, Get you up to Carmel, and go to Nabal, and greet him in my name:
25:6 And thus shall all of you say to him that lives in prosperity, Peace be both to you, and peace be to yours house, and peace be unto all that you have.
25:7 And now I have heard that you have shearers: now your shepherds which were with us, we hurt them not, neither was there ought missing unto them, all the while they were in Carmel.
25:8 Ask your young men, and they will show you. Wherefore let the young men find favour in yours eyes: for we come in a good day: give, I pray you, whatsoever comes to yours hand unto your servants, and to your son David.
25:9 And when David's young men came, they spoke to Nabal according to all those words in the name of David, and ceased.
25:10 And Nabal answered David's servants, and said, Who is David? and who is the son of Jesse? there be many servants these days that break away every man from his master.
25:11 Shall I then take my bread, and my water, and my flesh that I have killed for my shearers, and give it unto men, whom I know not whence they be?
25:12 So David's young men turned their way, and went again, and came and told him all those sayings.
25:13 And David said unto his men, Gird all of you on every man his sword. And they girded on every man his sword; and David also girded on his sword: and there went up after David about four hundred men; and two hundred abode by the stuff.
25:14 But one of the young men told Abigail, Nabal's wife, saying, Behold, David sent messengers out of the wilderness to salute our master; and he railed on them.
25:15 But the men were very good unto us, and we were not hurt, neither missed we any thing, as long as we were conversant with them, when we were in the fields:
25:16 They were a wall unto us both by night and day, all the while we were with them keeping the sheep.
25:17 Now therefore know and consider what you will do; for evil is determined against our master, and against all his household: for he is such a son of Belial, that a man cannot speak to him.
25:18 Then Abigail made haste, and took two hundred loaves, and two bottles of wine, and five sheep ready dressed, and five measures of parched corn, and an hundred clusters of raisins, and two hundred cakes of figs, and laid them on asses.
25:19 And she said unto her servants, Go on before me; behold, I come after you. But she told not her husband Nabal.
25:20 And it was so, as she rode on the ass, that she came down by the covert on the hill, and, behold, David and his men came down against her; and she met them.
25:21 Now David had said, Surely in vain have I kept all that this fellow has in the wilderness, so that nothing was missed of all that pertained unto him: and he has requited me evil for good.
25:22 So and more also do God unto the enemies of David, if I leave of all that pertain to him by the morning light any that pisses against the wall.
25:23 And when Abigail saw David, she hasted, and lighted off the ass, and fell before David on her face, and bowed herself to the ground,
25:24 And fell at his feet, and said, Upon me, my lord, upon me let this iniquity be: and let yours handmaid, I pray you, speak in yours audience, and hear the words of yours handmaid.
25:25 Let not my lord, I pray you, regard this man of Belial, even Nabal: for as his name is, so is he; Nabal is his name, and folly is with him: but I yours handmaid saw not the young men of my lord, whom you did send.
25:26 Now therefore, my lord, as the Jehovah lives, and as your soul lives, seeing the Jehovah has withheld you from coming to shed blood, and from avenging yourself with yours own hand, now let yours enemies, and they that seek evil to my lord, be as Nabal.
25:27 And now this blessing which yours handmaid has brought unto my lord, let it even be given unto the young men that follow my lord.
25:28 I pray you, forgive the trespass of yours handmaid: for the Jehovah will certainly make my lord a sure house; because my lord fights the battles of the Jehovah, and evil has not been found in you all your days.
25:29 Yet a man has risen to pursue you, and to seek your soul: but the soul of my lord shall be bound in the bundle of life with the Jehovah your God; and the souls of yours enemies, them shall he sling out, as out of the middle of a sling.
25:30 And it shall come to pass, when the Jehovah shall have done to my lord according to all the good that he has spoken concerning you, and shall have appointed you ruler over Israel;
25:31 That this shall be no grief unto you, nor offence of heart unto my lord, either that you have shed blood causeless, or that my lord has avenged himself: but when the Jehovah shall have dealt well with my lord, then remember yours handmaid.
25:32 And David said to Abigail, Blessed be the Jehovah God of Israel, which sent you this day to meet me:
25:33 And blessed be your advice, and blessed be you, which have kept me this day from coming to shed blood, and from avenging myself with mine own hand.
25:34 For in very deed, as the Jehovah God of Israel lives, which has kept me back from hurting you, except you had hasted and come to meet me, surely there had not been left unto Nabal by the morning light any that pisses against the wall.
25:35 So David received of her hand that which she had brought him, and said unto her, Go up in peace to yours house; see, I have hearkened to your voice, and have accepted your person.
25:36 And Abigail came to Nabal; and, behold, he held a feast in his house, like the feast of a king; and Nabal's heart was merry within him, for he was very drunken: wherefore she told him nothing, less or more, until the morning light.
25:37 But it came to pass in the morning, when the wine was gone out of Nabal, and his wife had told him these things, that his heart died within him, and he became as a stone.
25:38 And it came to pass about ten days after, that the Jehovah stroke Nabal, that he died.
25:39 And when David heard that Nabal was dead, he said, Blessed be the Jehovah, that has pleaded the cause of my reproach from the hand of Nabal, and has kept his servant from evil: for the Jehovah has returned the wickedness of Nabal upon his own head. And David sent and communed with Abigail, to take her to him to wife.
25:40 And when the servants of David were come to Abigail to Carmel, they spoke unto her, saying, David sent us unto you, to take you to him to wife.
25:41 And she arose, and bowed herself on her face to the earth, and said, Behold, let yours handmaid be a servant to wash the feet of the servants of my lord.
25:42 And Abigail hasted, and arose and rode upon an ass, with five damsels of hers that went after her; and she went after the messengers of David, and became his wife.
Ph2:1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, (o. agape) if any fellowship of the Spirit, (o. pneuma) if any bowels and mercies,
2:2 Fulfill all of you my joy, that all of you be likeminded, having the same love, (o. agape) being of one accord, of one mind.
2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
2:9 Wherefore God also has highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Is2:5 O house of Jacob, come all of you, and let us walk in the light of the Jehovah.
2:6 Therefore you have forsaken your people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.
2:7 Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots:
2:8 Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:
2:9 And the mean man bows down, and the great man humbles himself: therefore forgive them not.
2:10 Enter into the rock, and hide you in the dust, for fear of the Jehovah, and for the glory of his majesty.
2:11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the Jehovah alone shall be exalted in that day.
2:12 For the day of the Jehovah of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:
2:13 And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan,
2:14 And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up,
2:15 And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall,
2:16 And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures.
2:17 And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the Jehovah alone shall be exalted in that day.
Is57:14 And shall say, Cast all of you up, cast all of you up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling block out of the way of my people.
57:15 For thus says the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
57:16 For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always angry: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.
Ps113:1 Praise all of you the Jehovah. Praise, O all of you servants of the Jehovah, praise the name of the Jehovah.
113:2 Blessed be the name of the Jehovah from this time forth and for evermore.
113:3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Jehovah's name is to be praised.
113:4 The Jehovah is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.
113:5 Who is like unto the Jehovah our God, who dwells on high,
113:6 Who humbles himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!
113:7 He raises up the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the dunghill;
113:8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.
113:9 He makes the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise all of you the Jehovah.
Ps116:1 I love the Jehovah, because he has heard my voice and my supplications.
116:2 Because he has inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
116:3 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell got hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
116:4 Then called I upon the name of the Jehovah; O Jehovah, I plead to you, deliver my soul.
116:5 Gracious is the Jehovah, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
116:6 The Jehovah perserves the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.
116:7 Return unto your rest, O my soul; for the Jehovah has dealt bountifully with you.
116:8 For you have delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
Ps147:6 The Jehovah lifts up the meek: he casts the wicked down to the ground.
Mc6:8 He has showed you, O man, what is good; and what does the Jehovah require of you, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?
Zp2:3 Seek all of you the Jehovah, all you meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be all of you shall be hid in the day of the Jehovah's anger.
Gn33:1 And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids.
33:2 And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost.
33:3 And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.
33:4 And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept.
33:5 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who are those with you? And he said, The children which God has graciously given your servant.
33:6 Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, and they bowed themselves.
33:7 And Leah also with her children came near, and bowed themselves: and after came Joseph near and Rachel, and they bowed themselves.
33:8 And he said, What mean you by all this drove which I met? And he said, These are to find grace in the sight of my lord.
33:9 And Esau said, I have enough, my brother; keep that you have unto yourself.
33:10 And Jacob said, Nay, I pray you, if now I have found grace in your sight, then receive my present at my hand: for therefore I have seen your face, as though I had seen the face of God, and you were pleased with me.
33:11 Take, I pray you, my blessing that is brought to you; because God has dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough. And he urged him, and he took it.
2Sm6:12 And it was told king David, saying, The Jehovah has blessed the house of Obededom, and all that pertains unto him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obededom into the city of David with gladness.
6:13 And it was so, that when they that bare the ark of the Jehovah had gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatlings.
6:14 And David danced before the Jehovah with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.
6:15 So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the Jehovah with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet.
6:16 And as the ark of the Jehovah came into the city of David, Michal Saul's daughter looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the Jehovah; and she despised him in her heart.
6:17 And they brought in the ark of the Jehovah, and set it in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched for it: and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the Jehovah.
6:18 And as soon as David had made an end of offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Jehovah of hosts.
6:19 And he dealt among all the people, even among the whole multitude of Israel, as well to the women as men, to every one a cake of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a flagon of wine. So all the people departed every one to his house.
6:20 Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovers himself!
6:21 And David said unto Michal, It was before the Jehovah, which chose me before your father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the Jehovah, over Israel: therefore will I play before the Jehovah.
6:22 And I will yet be more vile than thus, and will be base in mine own sight: and of the maidservants which you have spoken of, of them shall I be had in honour.
Jm1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
1:15 Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death.
1Pt3:8 Finally, be all of you all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:
3:9 Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that all of you are thereunto called, that all of you should inherit a blessing.
3:10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
3:11 Let him shun evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and pursue it.
3:12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
2Ch7:12 And the Jehovah appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice.
7:13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
7:15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attentive unto the prayer that is made in this place.
7:16 For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
2Ch12:1 And it came to pass, when Rehoboam had established the kingdom, and had strengthened himself, he forsook the law of the Jehovah, and all Israel with him.
12:2 And it came to pass, that in the fifth year of king Rehoboam Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, because they had transgressed against the Jehovah,
12:3 With twelve hundred chariots, and threescore thousand horsemen: and the people were without number that came with him out of Egypt; the Lubims, the Sukkiims, and the Ethiopians.
12:4 And he took the fenced cities which pertained to Judah, and came to Jerusalem.
12:5 Then came Shemaiah the prophet to Rehoboam, and to the princes of Judah, that were gathered together to Jerusalem because of Shishak, and said unto them, Thus says the Jehovah, All of you have forsaken me, and therefore have I also left you in the hand of Shishak.
12:6 Whereupon the princes of Israel and the king humbled themselves; and they said, The Jehovah is righteous.
12:7 And when the Jehovah saw that they humbled themselves, the word of the Jehovah came to Shemaiah, saying, They have humbled themselves; therefore I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some deliverance; and my wrath shall not be poured out upon Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak.
12:8 Nevertheless they shall be his servants; that they may know my service, and the service of the kingdoms of the countries.
12:9 So Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, and took away the treasures of the house of the Jehovah, and the treasures of the king's house; he took all: he carried away also the shields of gold which Solomon had made.
12:10 Instead of which king Rehoboam made shields of brass, and committed them to the hands of the chief of the guard, that kept the entrance of the king's house.
12:11 And when the king entered into the house of the Jehovah, the guard came and fetched them, and brought them again into the guard chamber.
12:12 And when he humbled himself, the wrath of the Jehovah turned from him, that he would not destroy him altogether: and also in Judah things went well.
2Ch33:10 And the Jehovah spoke to Manasseh, and to his people: but they would not hearken.
33:11 Wherefore the Jehovah brought upon them the captains of the host of the king of Assyria, which took Manasseh among the thorns, and bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon.
33:12 And when he was in affliction, he besought the Jehovah his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers,
33:13 And prayed unto him: and he was implored of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Jehovah he was God.
2Ch34:24 Thus says the Jehovah, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the curses that are written in the book which they have read before the king of Judah:
34:25 Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be poured out upon this place, and shall not be quenched.
34:26 And as for the king of Judah, who sent you to enquire of the Jehovah, so shall all of you say unto him, Thus says the Jehovah God of Israel concerning the words which you have heard;
34:27 Because yours heart was tender, and you did humble yourself before God, when you heard his words against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, and humbledst yourself before me, and did rend your clothes, and weep before me; I have even heard you also, says the Jehovah.
34:28 Behold, I will gather you to your fathers, and you shall be gathered to your grave in peace, neither shall yours eyes see all the evil that I will bring upon this place, and upon the inhabitants of the same. So they brought the king word again.
Ez8:21 Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance.
8:22 For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way: because we had spoken unto the king, saying, The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath is against all them that forsake him.
8:23 So we fasted and besought our God for this: and he was implored of us.
