Deuteronomy 20:1-4

1 When thou go forth to battle against thine enemies, and see horses, and chariots, [and] a people more than thou, thou shall not be afraid of them, for LORD thy God is with thee, who brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. 2 And it shall be, when ye draw near to the battle, that the priest shall approach and speak to the people, 3 and shall say to them, Hear, O Israel, ye draw near this day to battle against your enemies. Let not your heart faint. Fear not, nor tremble, neither be ye frightened at them. 4 For LORD your God is he who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.

And he numbered them from twenty years old and upward, and 6 He also hired a hundred thousand mighty men of valor out of Israel for a hundred talents of silver.

Psalms 144:1

1 Blessed be LORD, my rock, who teaches my hands to war, [and] my fingers to fight,

John 1:1-51

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 This man was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came to be through him, and apart from him not even one thing came to be that has come to be. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 6 A man came to be who was sent from God, his name was John. 7 This man came for testimony so that he might testify about the light, so that all might believe through him. 8 That man was not the light, but that he might testify about the light. 9 He was the TRUE light coming into the world that enlightens every man. 10 He was in the world, and the world came to be through him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came to his own, and his own did not accept him. 12 But as many as did accept him, to them he gave power to become children of God, to those who believe in his name, 13 who were begotten, not from blood, nor from a will of flesh, nor from a will of man, but from God. 14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us. And we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John testified about him, and cried out, saying, This was he of whom I said, He who comes after me came to be before me, because he was before me. 16 And from his fullness we all received, even grace for grace. 17 Because the law was given through Moses. Grace and truth came to be through Jesus Christ. 18 No man has ever seen God. The only begotten Son, being in the bosom of the Father, that man reported him. 19 And this is the testimony of John when the Jews sent forth priests and Levites from Jerusalem so that they might ask him, Who are thou? 20 And he confessed, and did not deny, and confessed, I am not the Christ. 21 And they asked him, What therefore, are thou Elijah? And he says, I am not. Are thou the prophet? And he answered, No. 22 They said therefore to him, Who are thou, so that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do thou say about thyself? 23 He said, I am the voice of a man crying out in the wilderness: Make straight the way of Lord, just as the prophet Isaiah said. 24 And those who were sent were from the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him, and said to him, Why therefore do thou immerse if thou are not the Christ nor Elijah nor the prophet? 26 John answered them, saying, I immerse in water, but amidst you stands him whom ye know not. 27 He is the man who comes after me, who has become before me, of whom I am not worthy that I might loosen the strap of his shoe. 28 These things occurred in Bethany beyond the Jordan where John was immersing. 29 On the morrow John sees Jesus coming to him, and he says, Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is he about whom I said, After me comes a man who has become before me, because he was before me. 31 And I had not known him, but that he would be made known to Israel. Because of this I came immersing in water. 32 And John testified, saying, I have seen the Spirit descending like a dove out of heaven, and it remained upon him. 33 And I had not known him. But he who sent me to immerse in water, he said to me, Upon whomever thou will see the Spirit descending and remaining on him, this is he who immerses in Holy Spirit. 34 And I have seen and have testified that this is the Son of God. 35 Again on the morrow John stood, and two of his disciples. 36 And having looked upon Jesus walking, he says, Behold, the Lamb of God! 37 And the two disciples heard him speaking, and they followed Jesus. 38 And Jesus having turned, and having seen them following, says to them, What seek ye? And they said to him, Rabbi (which says, being interpreted, Teacher), where do thou dwell? 39 He says to them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and remained with him that day. It was about the tenth hour. 40 Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, was one of the two who heard from John and who followed him. 41 This man first finds his own brother Simon, and says to him, We have found the Messiah (which is, being interpreted, Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus. And having seen him, Jesus said, Thou are Simon the son of Jonah. Thou will be called Cephas (which is interpreted, Peter). 43 On the morrow he wanted to go forth into Galilee, and he finds Philip. And Jesus says to him, Follow me. 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip finds Nathanael, and says to him, We have found him of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets wrote: Jesus the son of Joseph of Nazareth. 46 And Nathanael said to him, What good can be from Nazareth? Philip says to him, Come and see. 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and says about him, Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit. 48 Nathanael says to him, How do thou know me? Jesus answered and said to him, Before Philip called thee, being under the fig tree, I saw thee. 49 Nathanael answered, and says to him, Rabbi, thou are the Son of God. Thou are the king of Israel. 50 Jesus answered and said to him, Because I said to thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, thou believe? Thou will see greater than these things. 51 And he says to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, henceforth ye will see the heaven opened, and the agents of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

Revelation 12:7-11

7 And war developed in heaven: Michael and his agents to fight with the dragon. And the dragon and his agents fought. 8 And he did not prevail, nor was a place found for him any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, the ancient serpent, called the Devil and Satan, he who leads the whole world astray. He was cast out to the earth, and his agents were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a great voice in heaven, saying, Now it came to pass, the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. Because the accuser of our brothers was cast out, who accuses them before 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony. And they loved not their life to the point of death.

Judges 11:1-12

1 Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty man of valor, and he was the son of a harlot, and Gilead begot Jephthah. 2 And Gilead's wife bore sons to him. And when his wife's sons grew up, they drove out Jephthah, and said to him, Thou shall not inherit in our father's house, for thou are the son of another woman. 3 Then Jephthah fled from his brothers, and dwelt in the land of Tob. And vain fellows were gathered to Jephthah, and they went out with him. 4 And it came to pass after a while, that the sons of Ammon made war against Israel. 5 And it was so, that, when the sons of Ammon made war against Israel, the elders of Gilead went to fetch Jephthah out of the land of Tob. 6 And they said to Jephthah, Come and be our chief, that we may fight with the sons of Ammon. 7 And Jephthah said to the elders of Gilead, Did ye not hate me, and drive me out of my father's house? And why have ye come to me now when ye are in distress? 8 And the elders of Gilead said to Jephthah, For that reason we turned again to thee now, that thou may go with us, and fight with the sons of Ammon. And thou shall be our head over all the inhabitants of Gilead. 9 And Jephthah said to the elders of Gilead, If ye bring me home again to fight with the sons of Ammon, and LORD delivers them before me, shall I be your head? 10 And the elders of Gilead said to Jephthah, LORD shall be witness between us. Surely according to thy word so will we do. 11 Then Jephthah went with the elders of Gilead, and the people made him head and chief over them. And Jephthah spoke all his words before LORD in Mizpah. 12 And Jephthah sent messengers to the king of the sons of Ammon, saying, What have thou to do with me, that thou have come to me to fight against my land?

1 Peter 3:7

7 Likewise the husbands living together knowledgably, as with a weaker vessel, apportioning worth to the female as also joint-heirs of the grace of life, for your prayers not to be hindered.

1 Peter 2:9-10

9 But ye are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for an acquired possession, so that ye might broadly proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 10 Men formerly not a people, but now are a people of God. Men who had not obtained mercy, but who now have obtained mercy.

1 Chronicles 12:8

8 And of the Gadites there separated themselves to David to the stronghold in the wilderness, mighty men of valor, men trained for war, who could handle shield and spear, whose faces were like the faces of lions, and they were as swi

Judges 6:12

12 And the agent of LORD appeared to him, and said to him, LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valor.

Joshua 8:1-35

1 And LORD said to Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed. Take all the people of war with thee, and arise, go up to Ai. See, I have given into thy hand the king of Ai, and his people, and his city, and his land. 2 And thou shall do to Ai and her king as thou did to Jericho and her king. Only the spoil of it, and the cattle of it, ye shall take for a prey to yourselves. Set thee an ambush for the city behind it. 3 So Joshua arose, and all the people of war, to go up to Ai. And Joshua chose out thirty thousand men, the mighty men of valor, and sent them forth by night. 4 And he commanded them, saying, Behold, ye shall lay in ambush against the city, behind the city. Go not very far from the city, but be ye all ready, 5 and I, and all the people that are with me, will approach to the city. And it shall come to pass, when they come out against us, as at the first, that we will flee before them. 6 And they will come out after us, till we have drawn them away from the city, for they will say, They flee before us, as at the first. So we will flee before them. 7 And ye shall rise up from the ambush, and take possession of the city, for LORD your God will deliver it into your hand. 8 And it shall be, when ye have seized upon the city, that ye shall set the city on fire. According to the word of LORD shall ye do. See, I have commanded you. 9 And Joshua sent them forth, and they went to the ambushment, and abode between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of Ai, but Joshua lodged that night among the people. 10 And Joshua arose up early in the morning, and mustered the people, and went up, he and the elders of Israel, before the people to Ai. 11 And all the people, [even] the [men of] war who were with him, went up, and drew near, and came before the city, and encamped on the north side of Ai. Now there was a valley between him and Ai. 12 And he took about five thousand men, and set them in ambush between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of the city. 13 So they set the people, even all the army that was on the north of the city, and their ambushment that were on the west of the city, and Joshua went that night into the midst of the valley. 14 And it came to pass, when the king of Ai saw it, that they hastened and rose up early, and the men of the city went out against Israel to battle, he and all his people, at the time appointed, before the Arabah, but he did not know 15 And Joshua and all Israel made as if they were beaten before them, and fled by the way of the wilderness. 16 And all the people that were in the city were called together to pursue after them, and they pursued after Joshua, and were drawn away from the city. 17 And there was not a man left in Ai or Bethel who did not go out after Israel. And they left the city open, and pursued after Israel. 18 And LORD said to Joshua, Stretch out the javelin that is in thy hand toward Ai, for I will give it into thy hand. And Joshua stretched out the javelin that was in his hand toward the city. 19 And the ambush arose quickly out of their place, and they ran as soon as he had stretched out his hand, and entered into the city, and took it. And they hastened and set the city on fire. 20 And when the men of Ai looked behind them, they saw, and, behold, the smoke of the city ascended up to heaven, and they had no power to flee this way or that way. And the people who fled to the wilderness turned back upon the pursu 21 And when Joshua and all Israel saw that the ambush had taken the city, and that the smoke of the city ascended, then they turned again, and killed the men of Ai. 22 And the others came forth out of the city against them, so they were in the midst of Israel, some on this side, and some on that side. And they smote them so that they let none of them remain or escape. 23 And they took the king of Ai alive, and brought him to Joshua. 24 And it came to pass, when Israel had made an end of killing all the inhabitants of Ai in the field, in the wilderness in which they pursued them, and they were all fallen by the edge of the sword until they were consumed, that all 25 And all who fell that day, both of men and women, were twelve thousand, even all the men of Ai. 26 For Joshua did not draw back his hand, with which he stretched out the javelin, until he had utterly destroyed all the inhabitants of Ai. 27 Only the cattle and the spoil of that city Israel took for prey to themselves, according to the word of LORD which he commanded Joshua. 28 So Joshua burnt Ai, and made it a heap forever, even a desolation, to this day. 29 And he hanged the king of Ai on a tree until the evening. And at the going down of the sun Joshua commanded, and they took his body down from the tree, and cast it at the entrance of the gate of the city, and raised a great heap of 30 Then Joshua built an altar to LORD, the God of Israel, in mount Ebal, 31 as Moses the servant of LORD commanded the sons of Israel, as it is written in the book of the law of Moses, an altar of unhewn stones, upon which no man had lifted up any iron. And they offered burnt-offerings on it to LORD, and s 32 And he wrote there upon the stones a copy of the law of Moses, which he wrote, in the presence of the sons of Israel. 33 And all Israel, and their elders and officers, and their judges, stood on this side of the ark and on that side before the priests the Levites, who bore the ark of the covenant of LORD, as well the sojourner as the home born, half 34 And afterward he read all the words of the law, the blessing and the curse, according to all that is written in the book of the law. 35 There was not a word of all that Moses commanded, which Joshua did not read before all the assembly of Israel, and the women, and the little ones, and the sojourners who were among them.
