Bible verses about "threats" | LEB

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.

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?"

Matthew 5:38-39

38 "You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.'* 39 But I say to you, do not resist the evildoer, but whoever strikes you on the right cheek,* turn the other to him also.

Isaiah 54:17

17 Every weapon formed against you shall not succeed, and you shall declare guilty every tongue that rises against you for judgment. This is the inheritance of the servants of Yahweh, and their legal right* from me,"
declares* Yahweh.
