2 Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have
unwittingly entertained angels.
7 The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him,
and delivers them.
8 Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man
who trusts in Him!
PSALM 91:1-6, 11-12
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide
under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress; my
God, in Him I will trust."
3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and
from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you
shall take refuge; his truth shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow
that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction
that lays waste at noonday.
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in
all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot
against a stone.
19 The LORD has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom
rules over all.
20 Bless the LORD, you His angels, who excel in strength, who
do His word, Heeding the voice of His word.
21 Bless the LORD, all you His hosts, you ministers of His, who
do His pleasure.
9 It came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth
of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
10 And immediately, coming up from the water, He saw the heavens
parting and the Spirit descending upon Him like a dove.
11 Then a voice came from heaven, "You are My beloved Son, in
whom I am well pleased."
12 And immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness.
13 And He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan,
and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to Him.
35 "For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever
loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it.
36 "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world,
and loses his own soul?
37 "Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
38 "For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous
and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed
when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels."
24 "... in those days... the sun will be darkened, and the moon
will not give its light;
25 "the stars of heaven will fall, and the powers in heaven will
26 "Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with
great power and glory.
27 "And then He will send His angels, and gather together His
elect from the four winds, from the farthest part of earth to
the farthest part of heaven.
7 "... there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents
than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.
10 "...I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels
of God over one sinner who repents."
24 ..."Teacher, Moses said that if a man dies, having no children,
his brother shall marry his wife and raise up offspring for his
25 "Now there were with us seven brothers. The first died after
he had married, and having no offspring, left his wife to his
26 "Likewise the second also, and the third, even to the seventh.
27 "Last of all the woman died also.
28 "Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife of the seven will
she be? For they all had her."
29 Jesus answered and said to them, "You are mistaken, not knowing
the Scriptures nor the power of God.
35 "... those who are counted worthy to attain that age, and the
resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage;
36 "nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels
and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.
38 "The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the
kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one.
39 "The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the
end of the age, and the reapers are the angels.
40 "Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire,
so it will be at the end of this age.
41 "The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather
out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice
42 "and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be
wailing and gnashing of teeth.
43 "Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom
of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!
34 "Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means
pass away till all these things take place.
35 "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means
36 "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels
of heaven, but My Father only.
31 "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels
with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.
42 ..."Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me;
nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done."
43 Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.
1 Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to
dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb.
2 And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the
Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone
from the door, and sat on it.
3 His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white
4 And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men.
5 But the angel answered and said to the women, "Do not be afraid,
for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.
6 "He is not here; for He is risen...
1 Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to
harass some from the church.
2 Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
3 And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further
to seize Peter also. Now it was during the Days of Unleavened
4 So when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered
him to four squads of soldiers to keep him, intending to bring
him before the people after Passover.
5 Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant prayer was
offered to God for him by the church.
6 And when Herod was about to bring him out, that night Peter
was sleeping, bound with two chains between two soldiers; and
the guards before the door were keeping the prison.
7 Now behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shone
in the prison; and he struck Peter on the side and raised him
up, saying, "Arise quickly!" And his chains fell off his hands.
8 Then the angel said to him, "Gird yourself and tie on your sandals";
and so he did. And he said to him, "Put on your garment and follow
9 So he went out and followed him, and did not know that what
was done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision.
10 When they were past the first and the second guard posts, they
came to the iron gate that leads to the city, which opened to
them of its own accord; and they went out and went down one street,
and immediately the angel departed from him.
11 And when Peter had come to himself, he said, "Now I know for
certain that the Lord has sent His angel, and has delivered me
from the hand of Herod and from all the expectation of the Jewish
12 So, when he had considered this, he came to the house of Mary,
the mother of John whose surname was Mark, where many were gathered
13 And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a girl named
Rhoda came to answer.
14 When she recognized Peter's voice, because of her gladness
she did not open the gate, but ran in and announced that Peter
stood before the gate.
15 But they said to her, "You are beside yourself!" Yet she kept
insisting that it was so. So they said, "It is his angel."
16 Now Peter continued knocking; and when they opened the door
and saw him, they were astonished.
17 But motioning to them with his hand to keep silent, he declared
to them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he
said, "Go, tell these things to James and to the brethren." And
he departed and went to another place.
18 Then, as soon as it was day, there was no small stir among
the soldiers about what had become of Peter.
19 But when Herod had searched for him and not found him, he examined
the guards and commanded that they should be put to death. And
he went down from Judea to Caesarea, and stayed there.
20 Now Herod had been very angry with the people of Tyre and Sidon;
but they came to him with one accord, and having made Blastus
the king's personal aide their friend, they asked for peace, because
their country was supplied with food by the king's country.
21 So on a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat on his
throne and gave an oration to them.
22 And the people kept shouting, "The voice of a god and not of
23 Then immediately an angel of the Lord struck him, because he
did not give glory to God. And he was eaten by worms and died.
24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.
2 THESSALONIANS 1:6-10
6 ...it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation
those who trouble you,
7 and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord
Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels,
8 in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God,
and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9 These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the
presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,
10 when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and
to be admired among all those who believe...
18 Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false
humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which
he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
1 TIMOTHY 5:21
21 I charge you before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect
angels that you observe these things without prejudice, doing
nothing with partiality.
1 God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time
past to the fathers by the prophets,
2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has
appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;
3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image
of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power,
when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right
hand of the Majesty on high,
4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance
obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For to which of the angels did He ever say: "You are My Son,
today I have begotten You"? And again: "I will be to Him a Father,
and He shall be to Me a Son"?
6 But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says:
"Let all the angels of God worship Him."
7 And of the angels He says: "Who makes His angels spirits and
His ministers a flame of fire."
8 But to the Son He says: "Your throne, O God, is forever and
ever; a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your Kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore
God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more
than Your companions."
14 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood,
He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He
might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,
15 and release those who through fear of death were all their
lifetime subject to bondage.
16 For indeed He does not give aid to angels, but He does give
aid to the seed of Abraham.
22 ...you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living
God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels,
1 PETER 1:1-12
1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ,
2 ...elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification
of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus
Christ: Grace to you and peace be multiplied.
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who
according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living
hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does
not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation
ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while,
if need be, you have been grieved by various trials,
7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious
than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found
to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,
8 whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him,
yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of
9 receiving the end of your faith-- the salvation of your souls.
10 Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully,
who prophesied of the grace that would come to you,
11 searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ
who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the
sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow.
12 To them it was revealed that, not to themselves, but to us
they were ministering the things which now have been reported
to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the
Holy Spirit sent from heaven-- things which angels desire to look
1 PETER 3:21-22
21 ...Jesus Christ,
22 ...has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels
and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.
2 PETER 2:4-7, 9-11
4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them
down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be
reserved for judgment;
5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of
eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood
on the world of the ungodly;
6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned
them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward
would live ungodly;
7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy
conduct of the wicked
9 ...the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations
and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment,
10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the
lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous,
self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries,
11 whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not
bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord.
5 But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, that the
Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward
destroyed those who did not believe.
6 And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left
their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness
for the judgment of the great day;
14 ..."Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints,
15 "to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly
among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed
in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners
have spoken against Him."
7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with
the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought,
8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in
heaven any longer.
9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called
the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast
to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
6 ...the Lord God of the holy prophets sent His angel to show
His servants the things which must shortly take place.
7 "Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words
of the prophecy of this book."
8 Now I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and
saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed
me these things.
9 Then he said to me, "See that you do not do that. For I am your
fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those
who keep the words of this book. Worship God."
10 And he said to me, "Do not seal the words of the prophecy of
this book, for the time is at hand.
