  13 H270 [H8800] That it might take hold H3671 of the ends H776 of earth, H7563 that the wicked H5287 [H8735] might be shaken out of it?

  17 H8179 Have the gates H4194 of death H1540 [H8738] been revealed H7200 [H8799] to thee? or hast thou seen H8179 the doors H6757 of the shadow of death?
  18 H995 [H8712] Hast thou perceived H7338 the breadth H776 of the earth? H5046 [H8685] declare H3045 [H8804] if thou knowest it all.
  19 H1870 Where is the way H216 where light H7931 [H8799] dwelleth? H2822 and as for darkness, H4725 where is its place,
  20 H3947 [H8799] That thou shouldest take H1366 it to its bound, H995 [H8799] and that thou shouldest know H5410 the paths H1004 to its house?
  21 H3045 [H8804] Knowest H3205 [H8735] thou it, because thou wast then born? H4557 or because the number H3117 of thy days H7227 is great?
  22 H935 [H8804] Hast thou entered H214 into the treasuries H7950 of the snow? H7200 [H8799] or hast thou seen H214 the treasuries H1259 of the hail,
  23 H2820 [H8804] Which I have reserved H6256 against the time H6862 of trouble, H3117 against the day H7128 of battle H4421 and war?
  24 H335 By what H1870 way H216 is the light H2505 [H8735] parted, H6327 [H8686] which scattereth H6921 the east wind H776 upon the earth?
  25 H6385 [H8765] Who hath divided H8585 a watercourse H7858 for the overflowing of waters, H1870 or a way H2385 for the lightning H6963 of thunder;
  26 H4305 [H8687] To cause it to rain H776 on the earth, H376 where no man H4057 is; on the wilderness, H120 in which there is no man;
  27 H7646 [H8687] To satisfy H7722 the desolate H4875 and waste H4161 ground; and to cause the bud H1877 of the tender herb H6779 [H8687] to spring forth?
  28 H3426 Hath H4306 the rain H1 a father? H3205 [H8689] or who hath begotten H96 the drops H2919 of the dew?
  29 H990 Out of whose womb H3318 [H8804] came H7140 the ice? H3713 and the hoary frost H8064 of heaven, H3205 [H8804] who hath gendered it?
  30 H4325 The waters H2244 [H8691] are hid H68 as with a stone, H6440 and the face H8415 of the deep H3920 [H8691] is frozen.
  31 H7194 [H8762] Canst thou bind H4575 the sweet influences H3598 of Pleiades, H6605 [H8762] or loose H4189 the bands H3685 of Orion?
  32 H3318 [H8686] Canst thou bring forth H4216 Mazzaroth H6256 in its season? H5148 [H8686] or canst thou guide H5906 Arcturus H1121 with its sons?
  33 H3045 [H8804] Knowest H2708 thou the ordinances H8064 of heaven? H7760 [H8799] canst thou set H4896 its dominion H776 on the earth?

  36 H7896 [H8804] Who hath put H2451 wisdom H2910 in the inward parts? H5414 [H8804] or who hath given H998 understanding H7907 to the heart?
  37 H5608 [H8762] Who can number H7834 the clouds H2451 in wisdom? H7901 [H8686] or who can pour out H5035 the water bottles H8064 of heaven,

  40 H7817 [H8799] When they crouch H4585 in their dens, H3427 [H8799] and abide H5521 in the covert H3926 to H695 lie in wait?

  2 G1161 Now G2491 when John G191 [G5660] had heard G1722 in G1201 the prison G2041 the works G5547 of Anointed, G3992 [G5660] he sent G1417 two G846 of his G3101 disciples,
  3 G2036 [G5627] And said G846 to him, G1488 [G5748] Art G4771 thou G2064 [G5740] he that should come, G2228 or G4328 [G5719] do we look G2087 for another?

James 1:6

  6 G1161 But G154 [G5720] let him ask G1722 in G4102 faith, G3367 nothing G1252 [G5734] wavering. G1063 For G1252 [G5734] he that wavereth G1503 [G5758] resembles G2830 a wave G2281 of the sea G416 [G5746] driven with the wind G2532 and G4494 [G5746] tossed.

Psalms 73:2-5

  2 H7272 But as for me, my feet H4592 were almost H5186 H5186 [H8804] gone; H838 my steps H369 had almost H8210 [H8795] slipped.
  3 H7065 [H8765] For I was envious H1984 [H8802] at the foolish, H7200 [H8799] when I saw H7965 the prosperity H7563 of the wicked.
  4 H2784 For there are no pangs H4194 in their death: H193 but their strength H1277 is firm.
  5 H5999 They are not in trouble H582 as other men; H5060 [H8792] neither are they afflicted H5973 like H120 other men.

Psalms 74:1-23

  1 H430 O God, H2186 [H8804] why hast thou cast us off H5331 for ever? H639 why doth thy anger H6225 [H8799] smoke H6629 against the sheep H4830 of thy pasture?
  2 H2142 [H8798] Remember H5712 thy company, H7069 [H8804] which thou hast purchased H6924 of old; H7626 the rod H5159 of thine inheritance, H1350 [H8804] which thou hast redeemed; H2022 this mount H6726 Zion, H7931 [H8804] in which thou hast dwelt.
  3 H7311 [H8685] Lift up H6471 thy feet H5331 to the perpetual H4876 desolations; H341 [H8802] even all that the enemy H7489 [H8689] hath done wickedly H6944 in the sanctuary.
  4 H6887 [H8802] Thy enemies H7580 [H8804] roar H7130 in the midst H4150 of thy meeting; H7760 [H8804] they set up H226 their banners H226 for signs.
  5 H3045 [H8735] A man was famous H935 H4605 [H8688] according as he had lifted up H7134 axes H5442 upon the thick H6086 trees.
  6 H1986 [H8799] But now they break down H6603 its carved work H3162 at once H3781 with axes H3597 and hammers.
  7 H7971 [H8765] They have cast H784 fire H4720 into thy sanctuary, H2490 [H8765] they have defiled H4908 by casting down the dwelling place H8034 of thy name H776 to the earth.
  8 H559 [H8804] They said H3820 in their hearts, H3238 [H8799] Let us oppress H3162 them together: H8313 [H8804] they have burned up H4150 all the meeting-places H410 of God H776 in the land.
  9 H7200 [H8804] We see H226 not our signs: H5030 there is no more any prophet: H3045 [H8802] neither is there among us any that knoweth H5704 how long.
  10 H430 O God, H6862 how long shall the adversary H2778 [H8762] reproach? H341 [H8802] shall the enemy H5006 [H8762] blaspheme H8034 thy name H5331 for ever?
  11 H7725 [H8686] Why withdrawest H3027 thou thy hand, H3225 even thy right hand? H3615 [H8761] pluck H7130 it out of H2436 H2436 [H8675] thy bosom.
  12 H430 For God H4428 is my King H6924 of old, H6466 [H8802] working H3444 salvation H7130 in the midst H776 of the earth.
  13 H6565 [H8782] Thou didst divide H3220 the sea H5797 by thy strength: H7665 [H8765] thou didst break H7218 the heads H8577 of the dragons H4325 in the waters.
  14 H7533 [H8765] Thou didst break H7218 the head H3882 of leviathan H5414 [H8799] in pieces, and didst give H3978 him to be food H5971 to the people H6728 inhabiting the wilderness.
  15 H1234 [H8804] Thou didst cleave H4599 the fountain H5158 and the flood: H3001 [H8689] thou didst dry up H386 mighty H5104 rivers.
  16 H3117 The day H3915 is thine, the night H3559 [H8689] also is thine: thou hast prepared H3974 the light H8121 and the sun.
  17 H5324 [H8689] Thou hast set H1367 all the borders H776 of the earth: H3335 [H8804] thou hast made H7019 summer H2779 and winter.
  18 H2142 [H8798] Remember H341 [H8802] this, the enemy H2778 [H8765] hath reproached, H3068 O LORD, H5036 and the foolish H5971 people H5006 [H8765] have blasphemed H8034 thy name.
  19 H5414 [H8799] O deliver H5315 not the breath H8449 of thy turtledove H2416 to the multitude H7911 [H8799] of the wicked: forget H2416 not the life H6041 of thy poor H5331 for ever.
  20 H5027 [H8685] Have respect H1285 to the covenant: H4285 for the dark H776 places of the earth H4390 [H8804] are full H4999 of the habitations H2555 of cruelty.
  21 H1790 O let not the oppressed H7725 [H8799] return H3637 [H8737] ashamed: H6041 let the poor H34 and needy H1984 [H8762] praise H8034 thy name.
  22 H6965 [H8798] Arise, H430 O God, H7378 [H8798] plead H7379 thy own cause: H2142 [H8798] remember H5036 how the foolish man H2781 reproacheth H3117 thee daily.
  23 H7911 [H8799] Forget H6963 not the voice H6887 [H8802] of thy enemies: H7588 the tumult H6965 [H8801] of those that rise H5927 [H8802] against thee increaseth H8548 continually.

Jeremiah 10:2-4

  2 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD, H3925 [H8799] Learn H1870 not the way H1471 of the nations, H2865 [H8735] and be not dismayed H226 at the signs H8064 of heaven; H1471 for the nations H2865 [H8735] are dismayed H1992 at them.
  3 H2708 For the customs H5971 of the people H1892 are vain: H3772 [H8804] for one cutteth H6086 a tree H3293 out of the forest, H4639 the work H3027 of the hands H2796 of the workman, H4621 with the axe.
  4 H3302 [H8762] They deck H3701 it with silver H2091 and with gold; H2388 [H8762] they fasten H4548 it with nails H4717 and with hammers, H6328 [H8686] that it may not move.

1 Corinthians 13:12

  12 G1063 For G737 now G991 [G5719] we see G1223 by G2072 a mirror, G1722 in G135 an enigma; G1161 but G5119 then G4383 face G4314 to G4383 face: G737 now G1097 [G5719] I know G1537 from out of G3313 a part; G1161 but G5119 then G1921 [G5695] I shall recognize G2531 just as G2532 also G1921 [G5681] I was recognized.

Isaiah 45:9-12

  9 H1945 Woe H7378 [H8801] to him that contendeth H3335 [H8802] with his Maker! H2789 Let the potsherd H2789 contend with the potsherds H127 of the soil. H2563 Shall the clay H559 [H8799] say H3335 [H8802] to him that fashioneth H6213 [H8799] it, What makest H6467 thou? or thy work, H3027 He hath no hands?
  10 H1945 Woe H559 [H8802] to him that saith H1 to his father, H3205 [H8686] What begettest H802 thou? or to the woman, H2342 [H8799] What hast thou brought forth?
  11 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD, H6918 the Holy One H3478 of Israel, H3335 [H8802] and his Maker, H7592 [H8798] Ask H857 [H8802] me of things to come H1121 concerning my sons, H6467 and concerning the work H3027 of my hands H6680 [H8762] command ye me.
  12 H6213 [H8804] I have made H776 the earth, H1254 [H8804] and created H120 man H3027 upon it: I, even my hands, H5186 [H8804] have stretched out H8064 the heavens, H6635 and all their host H6680 [H8765] have I commanded.

Romans 9:20

  20 G3304 Nay but, G5599 O G444 man, G5101 who G1488 [G5748] art G4771 thou G470 [G5740] that repliest against G2316 God? G3361   G2046 0 Shall G4110 the thing formed G2046 [G5692] say G4111 [G5660] to him that formed G5101 it, Why G4160 [G5656] hast thou made G3165 me G3779 thus?

Habakkuk 1:2

  2 H3068 O LORD, H7768 [H8765] how long shall I halloo, H8085 [H8799] and thou wilt not hear! H2199 [H8799] even cry out H2555 to thee of violence, H3467 [H8686] and thou wilt not save!

1 Corinthians 2:16

  16 G1063 For G5101 who G1097 [G5627] hath known G3563 the mind G2962 of the Lord, G3739 that G4822 [G5692] he may instruct G846 him? G1161 But G2249 we G2192 [G5719] have G3563 the mind G5547 of Anointed.

James 1:5-6

  5 G1161   G1536 If any G5216 of you G3007 [G5743] lacketh G4678 wisdom, G154 [G5720] let him ask G3844 of G2316 God, G1325 [G5723] who giveth G3956 to all G574 men liberally, G2532 and G3679 [G5723] upbraideth G3361 not; G2532 and G1325 [G5701] it shall be given G846 to him.
  6 G1161 But G154 [G5720] let him ask G1722 in G4102 faith, G3367 nothing G1252 [G5734] wavering. G1063 For G1252 [G5734] he that wavereth G1503 [G5758] resembles G2830 a wave G2281 of the sea G416 [G5746] driven with the wind G2532 and G4494 [G5746] tossed.

Psalms 10:1-18

  1 H5975 [H8799] Why standest H7350 thou afar off, H3068 O LORD? H5956 [H8686] why hidest H6256 thou thyself in times H6869 of trouble?
  2 H7563 The wicked H1346 in his pride H1814 [H8799] doth persecute H6041 the poor: H8610 [H8735] let them be taken H4209 in the devices H2098 that H2803 [H8804] they have imagined.
  3 H7563 For the wicked H1984 [H8765] boasteth H5315 of his breath's H8378 desire, H1288 [H8765] and blesseth H1214 [H8802] the covetous, H3068 whom the LORD H5006 [H8765] abhorreth.
  4 H7563 The wicked, H1363 through the pride H639 of his countenance, H1875 [H8799] will not seek H430 after God: God H4209 is not in all his thoughts.
  5 H1870 His ways H6256 are always H2342 [H8799] grievous; H4941 thy judgments H4791 are far above H6887 [H8802] out of his sight: as for all his enemies, H6315 [H8686] he puffeth at them.
  6 H559 [H8804] He hath said H3820 in his heart, H4131 [H8735] I shall not be moved: H1755 for I shall never H7451 be in adversity.
  7 H6310 His mouth H4390 [H8804] is full H423 of cursing H4820 and deceit H8496 and fraud: H3956 under his tongue H5999 is mischief H205 and vanity.
  8 H3427 [H8799] He sitteth H3993 in the lurking places H2691 of the villages: H4565 in the secret places H2026 [H8799] doth he murder H5355 the innocent: H5869 his eyes H6845 [H8799] are secretly set H2489 against the poor.
  9 H693 [H8799] He lieth in wait H4565 secretly H738 as a lion H5520 in his den: H693 [H8799] he lieth in wait H2414 [H8800] to catch H6041 the poor: H2414 [H8799] he doth catch H6041 the poor, H4900 [H8800] when he draweth H7568 him into his net.
  10 H1794 [H8799] He croucheth, H7817 [H8799] and humbleth H2426 H2489 H2489 [H8675] himself, that the poor H5307 [H8804] may fall H6099 by his strong ones.
  11 H559 [H8804] He hath said H3820 in his heart, H410 God H7911 [H8804] hath forgotten: H5641 [H8689] he hideth H6440 his face; H5331 he will never H7200 [H8804] see it.
  12 H6965 [H8798] Arise, H3068 O LORD; H410 O God, H5375 [H8798] lift up H3027 thy hand: H7911 [H8799] forget H6035 H6041 [H8675] not the humble.
  13 H7563 Why doth the wicked H5006 [H8765] despise H430 God? H559 [H8804] he hath said H3820 in his heart, H1875 [H8799] Thou wilt not require it.
  14 H7200 [H8804] Thou hast seen H5027 [H8686] it; for thou beholdest H5999 mischief H3708 and spite, H5414 [H8800] to repay H3027 it with thy hand: H2489 the poor H5800 [H8799] committeth H5826 [H8802] himself to thee; thou art the helper H3490 of the fatherless.
  15 H7665 [H8798] Break H2220 thou the arm H7563 of the wicked H7451 and the evil H1875 [H8799] man: seek out H7562 his wickedness H4672 [H8799] till thou shalt find H1077 none.
  16 H3068 The LORD H4428 is King H5769 to the age H5703 and ever: H1471 the nations H6 [H8804] have perished H776 out of his land.
  17 H3068 LORD, H8085 [H8804] thou hast heard H8378 the desire H6035 of the humble: H3559 [H8686] thou wilt prepare H3820 their heart, H241 thou wilt cause thy ear H7181 [H8686] to hear:
  18 H8199 [H8800] To judge H3490 the fatherless H1790 and the oppressed, H582 that the man H776 of the earth H3254 [H8686] may no more H6206 [H8800] oppress.

Isaiah 55:8-9

  8 H4284 For my thoughts H4284 are not your thoughts, H1870 neither are your ways H1870 my ways, H5002 [H8803] saith H3068 the LORD.
  9 H8064 For as the heavens H1361 [H8804] are higher H776 than the earth, H1870 so are my ways H1361 [H8804] higher H1870 than your ways, H4284 and my thoughts H4284 than your thoughts.
