6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. 7 The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. 8 O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. 15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. 18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. 19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. 20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
22 The Lord redeemeth
the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

KJV - 1 It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom; 2 And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first:
3 Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm. 4 Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him. 5 Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God. 6 Then these presidents and princes assembled together to the king, and said thus unto him, King Darius, live for ever. 7 All the presidents of the kingdom, the governors, and the princes, the counsellers, and the captains, have consulted together to establish a royal statute, and to make a firm decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into the den of lions.
9 Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree.
11 Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.
16 Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.
18 Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting:
19 Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto the den of lions.
21 Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever. 22 My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.

KJV - 12 Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.
18 Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me, 19 And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me.

KJV - 1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. 3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

|B7 - Act 12||Bible Lesson||Bibles online||Commentary||Bible Terms>>||Dict||S&H||Strong's>>||KJV & NAS||Heb||Gr||S&H|
KJV - 1 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
5 Peter therefore was
kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God
for him. 6 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter
was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers
before the door kept the prison. 7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord came
upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side,
and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from
his hands. 8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy
sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee,
and follow me. 9 And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it
was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision. 10 When
they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate
that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and
they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel
departed from him. 11 And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I
know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered
me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people
of the Jews. 12 And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house
of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered
together praying. 13 And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel
came to hearken, named Rhoda. 14 And when she knew Peter's voice, she opened
not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the
gate. 15 And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed
that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel. 16 But Peter continued
knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.
17 But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace, declared
unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison

|B8 - Act 20||Bible Lesson||Bibles online||Commentary||Bible Terms>>||Dict||S&H||Strong's>>||KJV & NAS||Heb||Gr||S&H|
KJV - 7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight. 8 And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together. 9 And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead. 10 And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him. 11 When he therefore was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and talked a long while, even till break of day, so he departed. 12 And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.

KJV - 1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
9 Because thou hast
made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; 10
There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy
dwelling. 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee
in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash
thy foot against a stone. 13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the
young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 14 Because he hath
set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high,
because he hath known my name. 15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer
him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

|King James Version (KJV) -- Almost all of today's printed and electronic editions of the KJV are based upon Dr. Benjamin Blayney's 1769 revision of the KJV, which like many of its KJV-revision predecessors, does not include the Apocrypha and the marginal notes that were in the original 1611 edition of the KJV. Spelling and punctuation also are quite different from the 1611 edition. Even in today's editions of the KJV, there remain some punctuation and spelling differences among major publishers.
