Judges 5:8

8 God chose new leaders,* then war was at the gates; a small shield or a spear was not seen among forty thousand in Israel.

Matthew 4:1-25

1 Then Jesus was led up into the wilderness by the Spirit to be tempted by the devil, 2 and after he* had fasted forty days and forty nights, then he was hungry. 3 And the tempter approached and* said to him, "If you are the Son of God, order that these stones become bread." 4 But he answered and* said, "It is written, 'Man will not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes out of the mouth of God."* 5 Then the devil took him to the holy city* and placed him on the highest point of the temple 6 and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down! For it is written,
'He will command his angels concerning you,'*
'On their hands they will lift you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.'"* 7 Jesus said to him, "On the other hand it is written, 'You are not to put the Lord your God to the test.'"* 8 Again the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory, 9 and he said to him, "I will give to you all these things, if you will fall down and* worship me." 10 Then Jesus said to him, "Go away, Satan, for it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God and serve only him.'"* 11 Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and began ministering to him. 12 Now when he* heard that John had been arrested,* he withdrew into Galilee. 13 And leaving Nazareth, he went and* lived in Capernaum by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali, 14 in order that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah would be fulfilled, who said, 15 "Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, toward the sea,* on the other side of the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles*16 the people who sit in darkness have seen a great light, and the ones who sit in the land and shadow of death, a light has dawned on them."* 17 From that time on, Jesus began to preach and to say, "Repent, because the kingdom of heaven is near." 18 Now as he* was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew, throwing a casting net into the sea (for they were fishermen). 19 And he said to them, "Follow me* and I will make you fishers of people." 20 And immediately they left their nets and* followed him. 21 And going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. 22 And immediately they left the boat and their father and* followed him. 23 And he went around through all of Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and every sickness among the people. 24 And a report about him went out throughout* Syria, and they brought to him all those who were sick* with various diseases and afflicted by torments, demon-possessed* and epileptics and paralytics, and he healed them. 25 And large crowds followed him from Galilee, Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and from the other side of the Jordan.

2 Chronicles 17:1-19

1 And Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his place, and he strengthened himself against Israel. 2 And he put troops in all the fortified cities of Judah, and put garrisons in the land of Judah and in the cities of Ephraim that Asa his father had taken. 3 And Yahweh was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the former ways of David his father and did not seek after the Baals, 4 but he sought after the God of his ancestors* and walked in his commandments and not according to the works of Israel. 5 So Yahweh established the kingdom in his hand. And all Judah gave tribute to Jehoshaphat, and he had much wealth and honor. 6 And his heart was courageous in the ways of Yahweh. Moreover, he removed the high places and the Asherahs from Judah. 7 In the third year of his reign he sent his officials, Ben-Hail, Obadiah, Zechariah, Nethanel, and Micaiah, to teach in the cities of Judah; 8 and with them the Levites Shemaiah, Nethaniah, Zebadiah, Asahel, Shemiramoth, Jehonathan, Adonijah, Tobijah, and Tob-Adonijah; and with them the priests Elisham and Joram. 9 And they taught in Judah, and the scroll of the law of Yahweh was with them when they went around in all the cities of Judah, and they taught the people. 10 And the fear of Yahweh was upon all the kingdoms of the lands surrounding Judah, and they did not make war against Jehoshaphat. 11 And some of the Philistines brought a gift and silver to Jehoshaphat as tribute. The Arabians also brought him seven thousand seven hundred sheep and seven thousand seven hundred goats. 12 And Jehoshaphat grew greater and greater,* and he built fortresses and storage cities in Judah. 13 And he had many supplies in the cities of Judah and mighty warriors for battle in Jerusalem. 14 Now these were their enrollment by the house of their ancestors:* of Judah, the commanders of thousands: Adnah, the commander, and with him were three hundred thousand mighty armed warriors; 15 and at his side,* Jehohanan the commander, and with him were two hundred and eighty thousand; 16 and at his side,* Amasiah the son of Zicri, who had made a freewill offering to Yahweh, and with him were two hundred thousand mighty armed warriors. 17 And from Benjamin: Eliada, a powerful mighty warrior, and with him were two hundred thousand armed with bow and shield; 18 and at his side,* Jehozabad, and with him were one hundred and eighty thousand armed for war. 19 These were serving the king, besides those whom the king had placed in the fortified cities throughout all Judah.

Proverbs 25:26

26 Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain is the righteous who gives way before the wicked.

Romans 13:4

4 for it is God's servant to you for what is good. But if you do what is bad, be afraid, because it does not bear the sword to no purpose. For it is God's servant, the one who avenges for punishment on the one who does what is bad.

Matthew 26:52-54

52 Then Jesus said to him, "Put your sword back into its place! For all who take up the sword will die by the sword. 53 Or do you think that I cannot call upon my Father, and he would put at my disposal at once more than twelve legions of angels? 54 How then would the scriptures be fulfilled that it must happen in this way?"

Psalms 144:1

1 Of David.*
Blessed be Yahweh, my rock, the one who trains my hands for battle, my fingers for war—

Ephesians 6:12

12 because our struggle is not against blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
