1Kgs 20:13 1Kgs 20:28 2Kgs 3:17-19 2Kgs 4:27 2Kgs 6:12 Amos 3:7 Rev 1:1

1Kgs 20:15 2Chr 20:20 2Kgs 2:12 2Kgs 5:14 2Kgs 13:14 Acts 27:24 Amos 7:1-6

2Sam 16:18-19 Luke 9:23 Luke 24:16 Mark 8:34 Matt 16:24

22 'Do not kill them,' he replied. 'Do you kill your own prisoners with sword and bow? Offer them food and water, so that they can eat and drink, and then let them go back to their master.'
Gen 48:22 2Chr 28:8-15 Deut 20:11-16 Hos 1:7 Hos 2:18 Josh 24:12 Matt 5:44

1Kgs 20:1 Deut 28:52 1Kgs 22:31 2Kgs 17:5 2Kgs 18:9 2Kgs 25:1 Eccl 9:14
25 In Samaria there was great famine, and so strict was the siege that the head of a donkey sold for eighty shekels of silver, and one quarter-kab of wild onions for five shekels of silver.

26 Now as the king was passing along the city wall, a woman shouted, 'Help, my lord king!'
2Sam 14:4 Acts 21:28 Isa 10:3 Luke 18:3

32 Elisha was sitting in his house, and the elders were sitting with him. The king sent a messenger ahead but, before the man arrived, Elisha had said to the elders, 'Do you see how this son of a murderer has given orders to cut off my head? Look, when the messenger comes, shut the door; hold the door against him. Isn't that the sound of his master's step behind him?'
