Deuteronomy 20:1-4

1 When thou shalt go forth to war against thine enemy, and thou sawest horse and chariot, a multitude of people more than thou, thou shalt not be afraid of them, for Jehovah thy God is with thee, he bringing thee up out of the land of Egypt 2 And it was in your coming near to the war, and the priest approached and spake to the people, 3 And he said to them, Hear, O Israel; ye come near this day to war against your enemies: your heart shall not be cast down, ye shall not fear, and ye shall not take flight, and ye shall not be terrified from their face. 4 For Jehovah your God goes with you to war with you against your enemies, to save you.

1 . To David. Blessed be Jehovah my rock, teaching my hands for the encounter, my fingers for war;

John 1:1-51

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and God was the Word. 2 This was in the beginning with God 3 All things were by him; and without him out him was not one thing that was. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And light shines in darkness; and darkness comprehended it not. 6 A man was sent from God, the name to him John. 7 This came for testimony, that he might testify concerning the Light, that all might believe through him. 8 He was not that Light, but that he might testify for the Light. 9 The Light was true, which enlightens every man coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came to his own things, and his own received him not. 12 And as many as received him, he gave them authority to be the children of God, to them believing on his name: 13 They were not born of bloods, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was flesh, and dwelt with us, (and we beheld his glory, as the glory of the only born of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 15 John testifies for him, and he tried, saying, This was he of whom I said, He coming after me was before me: for he was before me. 16 And of his completion we all received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given by Moses; grace and truth were by Jesus Christ. 18 None has seen God at any time; the only born Son, he being in the bosom of the Father, he has declared. 19 And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem that they might ask him, Who art thou? 20 And he acknowledged, and denied not; and he acknowledged, That I am not the Christ. 21 And they asked, What then? Art thou Elias? And he says, I am not. Art thou a prophet? And he answered, No. 22 Then said they to him, Who art thou? that we might give answer to them having sent us. What sayest thou for thyself? 23 He said, I the voice of him crying in the desert, Make ye straight the way of the Lord, as said Esaias the prophet. 24 And they having been sent were of the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him, and said to him, Why immersest thou then, if thou art not Christ, neither Elias, neither a prophet? 26 John answered them saying, I immerse in water: but he stands the midst of you, whom ye know not; 27 This is he coming after me, who was before me, of whom I am not worthy that I might loose the strings of his shoes. 28 These things were in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was immersing. 29 In the morrow John sees Jesus coming to him, and says, Behold the Lamb of God, be taking away the sin of the world. 30 This is he of whom I said, After me comes a man who was before me: for he was before me. 31 And I knew him not: but that he might be manifested to Israel, for this I came immersing in water. 32 And John testified, saying, That I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove from heaven, and it remained up on him. 33 And I knew him not: but he having sent me to immerse in water, this said to me, Upon whomsoever thou shouldest see the Spirit descending, and remaining upon him, this is he immersing in the Holy Spirit. 34 And I have seen, and 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 two disciples heard him speaking, and followed Jesus. 38 And Jesus having turned, and seen them following, says to them, What seek ye? They said to him, Rabbi, (It says, being interpreted, Teacher,) where remainest thou 39 He says to them, Come and see. They came and saw where he remains, and they remained with him that day: and it was about the tenth hour. 40 It was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, one of the two having heard of John, and followed him. 41 He first finds his own brother Simon, and says to him, We have found Messias, which is, being interpreted, Christ. 42 And he brought him to Jesus. And Jesus having looked upon him, said, Thou art Simon son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is, interpreted, Peter. 43 The morrow Jesus wished to go forth to Galilee, and he finds Philip, and he says to him, Follow me. 44 And Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 And Philip finds Nathanael, and says to him, Of whom Moses wrote in the law, and the prophets, we have found, Jesus, son of Joseph, him from Nazareth. 46 And Nathanael said to him, Can any good be from Nazareth? Philip says to him, Come and see. 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and he says of him, Behold truly an Israelite, in whom is no deceit! 48 Nathanael says to him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said to him, Before Philip called thee, being under the fig tree, I saw thee. 49 Nathanael answers and says to him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. 50 Jesus answered and said to him, Because I said to thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou thou shalt see greater than these. 51 And he says to him, Amen, amen, I say to you, From henceforth shall ye see heaven opened, and the messengers of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

Revelation 12:7-11

7 And war was in heaven; and Michael and his angels waged war against the dragon; and the dragon waged war and his angels, 8 And were not strong; nor was place more found for them in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, the old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, he deceiving the whole habitable globe: he was cast into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a great voice saying in heaven, Now was salvation and power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ for the accuser of our brethren was cast down, he accusing them before our God, day and night. 11 And they conquered him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their souls till death.

Judges 11:1-12

1 and Jephthah the Gileadite was a man of strength, and he the son of a woman, a harlot And Gilead will beget Jephthah. 2 And Gilead's wife will bring forth sons to him, and his wife's sons will grow, and they will drive out Jephthah, and they will say to him, Thou shalt not inherit in our father's house, for thou the son of another woman. 3 And Jephthah will flee from the face of his brethren and will dwell in the land of Tob: and empty men will gather together to Jephthah and will go forth with him. 4 And it will be from days and the sons of Ammon will war with Israel. 5 And it will be when the sons of Ammon warred with Israel, and the old men of Israel will go to take Jephthah out of the land of Tob. 6 And they will say to Jephthah, Come and be to us for leader, and we will war against the sons of Ammon. 7 And Jephthah will say to the old men of Gilead, Did ye not hate me, and ye will drive me out from my father's house? and why came ye to me now when there is distress to you? 8 And the old men of Gilead will say to Jephthah, Therefore now we turned back to thee, and come thou with us and we will war against the sons of Ammon, and be to us for head to all dwelling in Gilead. 9 And Jephthah will say to the old men of Gilead, If ye turn me back to war against the sons of Ammon, and Jehovah gave them before me, shall I be to you for head? 10 And the old men of Gilead will say to Jephthah, Jehovah shall be hearing between us, if we did not thus to thee according to thy word. 11 And Jephthah will go with the old men of Gilead, and the people will set him over them for head and for chief: and Jephthah will speak all his words before Jehovah in Mizpeh. 12 And Jephthah will send messengers to the king of the sons of Ammon, saying, What to me and to thee that thou camest to me to war in my land

1 Peter 3:7

7 Men, likewise, dwelling together according to knowledge, as showing honour to the weaker vessel, pertaining to woman, and as co-heirs of the grace of life; that your prayers be not cut off.

1 Peter 2:9-10

9 And ye a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for acquisition; so that ye should proclaim the excellencies of him having called you out of darkness into his wonderful light: 10 Who once not a people, and now the people of God: they not commiserated, and now commiserated.

1 Chronicles 12:8

8 And of the Gadites they separated to David to the castle from the desert strong ones of power, men of the army for war, setting in array the shield and spear, and the face of a lion their faces, and as roes upon the mountain to make haste;

Judges 6:12

12 And the messenger of Jehovah will be seen to him, and he will say to him, Jehovah is with thee, thou mighty of strength.

Joshua 8:1-35

1 And Jehovah will say to Joshua, Thou shalt not fear, and thou shalt not be terrified: take with thee all the people of war, and arise, go up to Ai: see, I gave into thy hand the king of Ai, and his people and his city and his land: 2 And do to Ai and to her king as thou didst to Jericho and to her king: only its plunder and her cattle ye shall plunder to yourselves: set to thee an ambush to the city from behind it. 3 And Joshua will rise, and all the people of war, to go up to Ai: and Joshua will choose thirty thousand men mighty of strength, and he will send them by night 4 And he will command them, saying. See, ye lie in wait against the city, behind the city: ye shall not be far off from the city greatly, and be ye all of you prepared: 5 And I and all the people that are with me will draw near to the city: and it was when they shall come forth to our meeting as at the first, and we fled before them. 6 And they will come out after us, and we drew them away from the city, for they will say, They flee before us as at the first: and we fled before their face. 7 And ye shall rise up from the ambush and seize the city: and Jehovah your God gave it into your hand. 8 And it was when ye seize the city, ye shall set the city on fire: according to the word of Jehovah ye shall do: See, I commanded you. 9 And Joshua will send them away; and they will go to the ambush, and they will dwell between the house of God and between Ai, from the sea to Ai: and Joshua will remain in that night in the midst of the people. 10 And Joshua will rise early in the morning and will review the people, and he will go up, and the old men of Israel, before the people of Ai. 11 And all the people of war that were with him went up, and they will draw near, and come before the city, and will encamp on the north to Ai: and the valley between them and Ai. 12 And he will take about five thousand men and set them in ambush between the house of God and between Ai, from the sea, to the city. 13 And the people will set all the camp which is from the north to the city, and its lying in wait, from the sea to the city; and Joshua will go in that night into the midst of the valley. 14 And it will be when the king of Ai saw, and they will hasten and will rise early, and the men of the city will come forth to the meeting of Israel, to war, he, and all his people, at the appointment before the desert: and he knew not that an ambush to him from behind the city. 15 And Joshua and all Israel will be smitten before them, and will flee the way of the desert 16 And all the people which are in the city will be called together to pursue after them, and they will pursue after Joshua, and be drawn away from the city. 17 And a man was not left in Ai and the house of God, who will not go forth after Israel: and they will leave the city opened and will pursue after Israel. 18 And Jehovah will say to Joshua, Stretch with the javelin which is in thine hand, to Ai; for into thine hand will I give it. And Joshua will stretch forth with the javelin which in his hand, to the city. 19 And the ambush rose quickly from its place, and they will run when he stretched out his hand: and they will come into the city and take it, and they will hasten and set the city on fire. 20 And the men of Ai will turn back behind them and will see, and behold, the smoke of the city went up to the heavens, and there was not with them hands to flee hither and thither: and the people having fled, turned back to the pursuers. 21 And Joshua and all Israel saw that the ambush took the city, and that the smoke of the city went up, and they will turn back and smite the men of Ai. 22 And these will go forth from the city to their meeting; and they will be to Israel in the midst of these from hence, and these from thence: and they will smite them till none were left to them fleeing and escaping. 23 And the king of Ai they seized, living, and they will bring him to Joshua. 24 And it will be when Israel finished killing all the inhabitants of Ai in the field in the desert, where they pursued them in it, and all of them will fall before the mouth of the sword till they were finished, and all Israel will turn back to Ai and will smite it by the mouth of the sword. 25 And it will be, all falling in that day from men, even to women, twelve thousand; all the men of Ai. 26 And Joshua turned not back his hand which he stretched out with the spear till he exterminated all the inhabitants of Ai. 27 Only the cattle and spoil of that city Israel plundered to themseves, according to the word of Jehovah which he commanded Joshua. 28 And Joshua will burn Ai and set it a heap forever, a waste even to this day. 29 And the king of Ai he hung upon the tree till the time of evening: and when the sun went down Joshua commanded and they will take down his carcass from the tree and cast it at the opening of the gate of the city, and they will set upon it a great heap of stones till this day. 30 Then Joshua will build an altar to Jehovah the God of Israel in mount Ebal. 31 As Moses the servant of Jehovah commanded the sons of Israel, as it was written in the book of the law of Moses, an altar of stones complete; which iron was not lifted up upon them: and they will bring up upon it burnt-offerings to Jehovah, and will sacrifice peace. 32 And he will write there upon the stones the second of the law of Moses which he wrote before the sons of Israel. 33 All Israel and his old men and scribes, and his judges stood hence, and thence, to the ark before the priests the Levites, lifting up the ark of the covenant of Jehovah, so the stranger as the native; half of them in front of mount Gerizim, and half of them in front of mount Ebal; as Moses the servant of Jehovah commanded to bless the people of Israel in the beginning. 34 And after this he read all the words of the law, the blessing and the curse, according to all the writing in the book of the law. 35 There was not a word from all that Moses commanded which Joshua read not before all the gathering of Israel, and the women and the little ones and the stranger going in the midst of them.
