...(29)Then Esther the queen, the daughter of Abihail, and Mordecai the Jew, wrote with all authority, to confirm this second letter of Purim. (30)And he sent the letters unto all the Jews, to the hundred twenty and seven provinces of the kingdom of Ahasuerus, with words of peace and truth, (31)To confirm these days of Purim in their times appointed, according as Mordecai the Jew and Esther the queen had enjoined them, and as they had decreed for themselves and for their seed, the matters of the fastings and their cry.
(32)And the decree of Esther confirmed these matters of Purim; and it was written in the book...
...When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn...
...(24)Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: (25)And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. (26)And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: (27)And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
(28)And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: (29)For he taught them as having authority, and not as the scribes...
...(5)And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, (6)And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. (7)And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. (8)The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. (9)For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
(10)When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel...
...(25)But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. (26)But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; (27)And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: (28)Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many...
...(23)And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority? (24)And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things. (25)The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe him? (26)But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet.
(27)And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things...
...(21)And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught. (22)And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes. (23)And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, (24)Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. (25)And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. (26)And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. (27)And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.
(28)And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee...
...(42)But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. (43)But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: (44)And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. (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...
...(27)And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders, (28)And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things? (29)And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. (30)The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? answer me. (31)And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him? (32)But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.
(33)And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things...
...(32)But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. (33)Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. (34)For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. (35)Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: (36)Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
(37)And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch...
...(31)And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath days. (32)And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power. (33)And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, (34)Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God. (35)And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not. (36)And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.
(37)And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about...
...(1)Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum. (2)And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die. (3)And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant. (4)And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this: (5)For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue. (6)Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof: (7)Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed. (8)For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
(9)When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel...
...(1)Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. (2)And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. (3)And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece. (4)And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart. (5)And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.
(6)And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where...
...(11)And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.
(12)He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. (13)And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. (14)But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us. (15)And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.
(16)Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. (17)And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities. (18)And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. (19)And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities...
Luke 20:1-8, 19-20
...(1)And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught the people in the temple, and preached the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came upon him with the elders, (2)And spake unto him, saying, Tell us, by what authority doest thou these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority? (3)And he answered and said unto them, I will also ask you one thing; and answer me: (4)The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? (5)And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye him not? (6)But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they be persuaded that John was a prophet. (7)And they answered, that they could not tell whence it was.
(8)And Jesus said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things...
...(19)And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and they feared the people: for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them. (20)And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor...
...(24)And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest. (25)And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. (26)But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. (27)For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth...
...(25)Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. (26)For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; (27)And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. (28)Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, (29)And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation...
...(25)And they, when they had testified and preached the word of the Lord, returned to Jerusalem, and preached the gospel in many villages of the Samaritans. (26)And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert. (27)And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship, (28)Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet. (29)Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot...
...(10)And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord. (11)And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, (12)And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight. (13)Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: (14)And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. (15)But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: (16)For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake...
...(8)Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead? (9)I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth. (10)Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of the saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I gave my voice against them. (11)And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto strange cities.
(12)Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests, (13)At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me. (14)And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. (15)And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest...
I Corinthians 15:19-24
...(19)If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. (20)But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. (21)For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. (22)For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. (23)But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. (24)Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power...
II Corinthians 10:7-11
...(7)Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any man trust to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ's, even so are we Christ's. (8)For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the Lord hath given us for edification, and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed: (9)That I may not seem as if I would terrify you by letters. (10)For his letters, say they, are weighty and powerful; but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible. (11)Let such an one think this, that, such as we are in word by letters when we are absent, such will we be also in deed when we are present...
I Timothy 2:1-14
...(1)I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; (2)For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. (3)For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; (4)Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. (5)For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (6)Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. (7)Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
(8)I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. (9)In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; (10)But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. (11)Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. (12)But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. (13)For Adam was first formed, then Eve. (14)And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression...
...(9)Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again; (10)Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. (11)For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, (12)Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; (13)Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; (14)Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
(15)These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee...
I Peter 3:18-22
...(18)For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: (19)By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; (20)Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. (21)The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: (22)Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him...
...(1)And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. (2)And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
(3)And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. (4)And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? (5)And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. (6)And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. (7)And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. (8)And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
(9)If any man have an ear, let him hear...
