16Finally, Abimelech said to Isaac, "Go away from us! You've become more POWERFUL than we are."
29I have the POWER to harm you. Last night the God of your father said to me, 'Be careful not to say anything at all to Jacob.'
3"Reuben, you are my firstborn, my strength, the very first son I had, first in majesty and first in POWER.
8I have come to rescue them from the POWER of the Egyptians and to bring them from that land to a good land with plenty of room for everyone. It is a land flowing with milk and honey where the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites live.
20So I will use my POWER to strike Egypt. After all the miracles that I will do there, he will let you go.
21The LORD said to Moses, "When you get back to Egypt, see that you show Pharaoh all the amazing things that I have given you the POWER to do. But I will make him stubborn so that he will not let the people go.
1Then the LORD said to Moses, "Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh. I will show him my POWER, and he will let my people go. I will show him my POWER, and he will throw them out of his country."
6"Tell the Israelites, 'I am the LORD. I will bring you out from under the oppression of the Egyptians, and I will free you from slavery. I will rescue you with my POWERFUL arm and with mighty acts of judgment.
4Pharaoh will not listen to you. Then I will use my POWER to punish Egypt severely, and I will bring my people, the Israelites, out of Egypt in organized family groups. 5The Egyptians will know that I am the LORD when I use my POWER against Egypt and bring the Israelites out of there."
15By now I could have used my POWER to kill you and your people with a plague that would have wiped you off the earth. 16But I have spared you for this reason. I want to show you my POWER and make my name famous throughout the earth.
31When the Israelites saw the great POWER the LORD had used against the Egyptians, they feared the LORD and believed in him and in his servant Moses.
15The tribal leaders of Edom will be terrified. The POWERFUL men of Moab will tremble. The people of Canaan will be deathly afraid. 16Terror and dread will fall on them. Because of the POWER of your arm, they will be petrified until your people pass by, O LORD, until the people you purchased pass by.
11But Moses pleaded with the LORD his God. "LORD," he said, "why are you so angry with your people whom you brought out of Egypt using your great POWER and mighty hand?
13I am the LORD your God. I brought you out of Egypt so that you are no longer slaves of the Egyptians. I have broken their POWER over you and made you live as a free people.
23The LORD asked Moses, "Is there a limit to the LORD's POWER? Now you will see whether or not my words come true."
13But Moses said to the LORD, "What if the Egyptians hear about it? (You used your POWER to take these people away from them.)
17"Lord, let your POWER be as great as when you said,
24"Almighty LORD, you have only begun to show me how great and POWERFUL you are. What kind of god is there in heaven or on earth who can do the deeds and the mighty acts you have done?
34Or has any god ever tried to come and take one nation away from another for himself? The LORD your God used his mighty hand and POWERFUL arm to do this for you in Egypt. He did this using plagues, miraculous signs, amazing things, and war. He did his great and awe-inspiring deeds in front of you.
37Because he loved your ancestors and chose their descendants, he was with you as he brought you out of Egypt by his great POWER.
15Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the LORD your God used his mighty hand and POWERFUL arm to bring you out of there. This is why the LORD your God has commanded you to observe the day of worship.
1The LORD your God will bring you to the land you're about to enter and take possession of. He will force many nations out of your way: the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites--seven nations larger and more POWERFUL than you.
19You saw with your own eyes the terrible plagues, the miraculous signs, and the amazing things the LORD did. He used his mighty hand and POWERFUL arm to bring you out. He will do the same thing to all the people you're afraid of.
3Realize today that the LORD your God is the one who is going ahead of you like a raging fire. He will wipe them out and will use you to crush their POWER. You will take possession of their land and will quickly destroy them as the LORD promised you.
26I prayed to the LORD and said, "Almighty LORD, don't destroy your people. They belong to you. You saved them by your great POWER and used your mighty hand to bring them out of Egypt.
29They are your people. They belong to you. You used your great strength and POWERFUL arm to bring them out of Egypt.
17The LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, POWERFUL, and awe-inspiring God. He never plays favorites and never takes a bribe.
2Remember today the discipline you learned from the LORD your God. (I'm not talking to your children. They didn't see or experience any of this.) You saw and experienced his great POWER--his mighty hand and POWERFUL arm.
5You will make this formal statement in the presence of the LORD your God: "My ancestors were wandering Arameans. There were only a few of them when they went to Egypt and lived as foreigners. But then they became a great, POWERFUL, and large nation.
8Then the LORD used his mighty hand and POWERFUL arm to bring us out of Egypt. He used spectacular and awe-inspiring deeds, miraculous signs, and amazing things.
39See, I am the only God. There are no others. I kill, and I make alive. I wound, and I heal, and no one can rescue you from my POWER.
24The LORD did this so that everyone in the world would know his mighty POWER and that you would fear the LORD your God every day of your life."
17Then Joshua said to the descendants of Joseph, the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh, "You are an important and very POWERFUL people. One region is really not enough for you.
9The LORD has forced important and POWERFUL nations out of your way. Not one person has ever been able to stand up to you.
10But I refused to listen to Balaam. All he could do was bless you. So I saved you from his POWER.
15Whenever the Israelites went to war, the POWER of the LORD brought disaster on them. This was what the LORD said he would do in an oath. So he made them suffer a great deal.
30The POWER of Moab was crushed by Israel that day. So there was finally peace in the land for 80 years.
23So on that day, God used the people of Israel to crush the POWER of King Jabin of Canaan.
2Midian's POWER was too strong for Israel. The Israelites made hiding places in the mountains, caves, and mountain strongholds to protect themselves from Midian.
9I rescued you from the POWER of the Egyptians and from the POWER of those who oppressed you. I forced people out of your way. I gave you their land.
28The POWER of Midian was crushed by the people of Israel, and Midian never again became a threat. So the land had peace for 40 years during Gideon's life.
5You're going to become pregnant and have a son. You must never cut his hair because the boy will be a Nazirite dedicated to God from birth. He will begin to rescue Israel from the POWER of the Philistines."
18Samson was very thirsty. So he called out to the LORD and said, "You have given me this great victory. But now I'll die from thirst and fall into the POWER of godless men."

2 Kings 10:6
6So he wrote them a second letter. It read, "If you are on my side and ready to listen to me, bring the heads of your master's heirs to me in Jezreel about this time tomorrow." The 70 male heirs were staying with the city's most POWERFUL men. These men had raised them.
2 Kings 10:11

2 Kings 17:7
7The Israelites sinned against the LORD their God, who brought them out of Egypt and rescued them from the POWER of Pharaoh (the king of Egypt). They worshiped other gods

36Instead, worship the LORD, who used his great POWER and a mighty arm to bring you out of Egypt. Bow down to the LORD, and sacrifice to him.
1 Chronicles 4:10

9David continued to grow more POWERFUL because the LORD of Armies was with him.

1 Chronicles 14:11
11So David and his men attacked and defeated the Philistines at Baal Perazim. David said, "Using my POWER like an overwhelming flood, God has overwhelmed my enemies." That is why they call that place Baal Perazim The Lord Overwhelms.
1 Chronicles 16:28
28"Give to the LORD, you families of the nations. Give to the LORD glory and POWER.
1 Chronicles 22:18

11Greatness, POWER, splendor, glory, and majesty are yours, LORD, because everything in heaven and on earth is yours.

You hold POWER and strength in your hands, and you can make anyone great and strong.
1 Chronicles 29:25

2 Chronicles 26:13
13Under them was an army of 307,500 soldiers. They were a POWERFUL force that could support the king against the enemy.
2 Chronicles 26:15-16
15In Jerusalem he made machines designed by inventive people. The machines were placed on the towers and corners to shoot arrows and hurl large stones. Uzziah's fame spread far and wide because he had strong support until he became POWERFUL.
16But when he became POWERFUL, his pride destroyed him. He was unfaithful to the LORD his God. He went into the LORD's temple to burn incense on the incense altar.
2 Chronicles 27:6
6Jotham grew POWERFUL because he was determined to live as the LORD his God wanted.
2 Chronicles 30:6
6Messengers took letters from the king and his officials throughout Israel and Judah. The king's order said, "Israelites, return to the LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel. Then he will return to the few of you who escaped from the POWER of the kings of Assyria.
2 Chronicles 32:8
8The king of Assyria has human POWER on his side, but the LORD our God is on our side to help us and fight our battles." So the people were encouraged by what King Hezekiah of Judah said.
20Jerusalem has had POWERFUL kings who have ruled the whole province west of the Euphrates. Taxes, fees, and tolls were paid to them.
28He made the king, his advisers, and all the king's POWERFUL officials treat me kindly. I was encouraged because the LORD my God was guiding me. So I gathered leaders in Israel to go with me.
22I was ashamed to ask the king for an armed escort with cavalry to help us against an enemy attack on the way. We had already told the king, "Our God works things out for the good of everyone who dedicates his life to serving him, but his POWER and his anger oppose everyone who abandons him."
10These are your servants and your people whom you have saved by your great POWER and your strong hand.
15Those who were governors before me had made life difficult for the people by taking from them food and wine plus one pound of silver. Even the governors' servants took advantage of their POWER over the people. But I didn't do that, because I feared God.
13There, Haman began to relate in detail to his wife Zeresh and to all his friends everything that had happened to him. Then his counselors and his wife Zeresh told him, "You are starting to lose POWER to Mordecai. If Mordecai is of Jewish descent, you will never win out over him. He will certainly lead to your downfall."
4Mordecai was an important man in the king's palace. Moreover, his reputation was spreading to all the provinces, since Mordecai was becoming more and more POWERFUL.
2All his acts of POWER and might along with the whole account of the greatness of Mordecai, whom the king had promoted, are recorded in the history of the kings of the Medes and Persians.
12The LORD told Satan, "Everything he has is in your POWER, but you must not lay a hand on him!" Then Satan left the LORD's presence.
6The LORD told Satan, "He is in your POWER, but you must spare his life!"
15"But he saves other people from their slander and the needy from the POWER of the mighty.
4"God is wise in heart and mighty in POWER. Who could oppose him and win?
6But robbers' tents are prosperous, and there is security for those who provoke God, for those whose god is their POWER.
16"God has POWER and priceless wisdom. He owns both the deceiver and the person who is deceived.
7"Why do the wicked go on living, grow old, and even become more POWERFUL?
16Anyhow, isn't their happiness in their own POWER? (The plan of the wicked is foreign to my way of thinking.)
22God will drag away these mighty men by his POWER. These people may prosper, but they will never feel secure about life.
2"You have helped the person who has no POWER and saved the arm that isn't strong.
12With his POWER he calmed the sea. With his insight he killed Rahab the sea monster.
14"These are only glimpses of what he does. We only hear a whisper of him! Who can understand the thunder of his POWER?"
11"I will teach you about God's POWER. I will not hide what the Almighty has done.
22It hurls itself at him without mercy. He flees from its POWER.
9"Humans exert their POWER on the flinty rocks and overturn mountains at their base.
20My POWER will be fresh every day, and the bow in my hand will remain new.'
9The weight of oppression makes them cry out. The POWER of mighty people makes them call for help.
22"God does great things by his POWER. Is there any teacher like him?
23The Almighty, whom we can't reach, is great in POWER and judgment, has more than enough righteousness, and does not oppress.
21It paws in strength and finds joy in its POWER. It charges into battle.
9Do you have POWER like God's? Can you thunder with a voice like his?
16Look at the strength in its back muscles, the POWER in its stomach muscles.
22Strength resides in its neck, and POWER dances in front of it.
19Arise, O LORD. Do not let mortals gain any POWER. Let the nations be judged in your presence.
10His victims are crushed. They collapse, and they fall under the weight of his POWER.
14With your POWER rescue me from mortals, O LORD, from mortals who enjoy their inheritance only in this life. You fill their bellies with your treasure. Their children are satisfied with it, and they leave what remains to their children.
6Now I know that the LORD will give victory to his anointed king. He will answer him from his holy heaven with mighty deeds of his POWERFUL hand.
8Your hand will discover all your enemies. Your POWERFUL hand will find all who hate you.
13Arise, O LORD, in your strength. We will sing and make music to praise your POWER.
1Give to the LORD, you heavenly beings. Give to the LORD glory and POWER.
4The voice of the LORD is POWERFUL. The voice of the LORD is majestic.
11The LORD will give POWER to his people. The LORD will bless his people with peace.
33But the LORD will not abandon him to the wicked person's POWER or condemn him when he is brought to trial.
2By your POWER you forced nations out of the land, but you planted our ancestors there. You shattered many groups of people, but you set our ancestors free.
15But God will buy me back from the POWER of hell because he will take me. Selah
11Do not kill them. Otherwise, my people may forget. Make them wander aimlessly by your POWER. Bring them down, O Lord, our shield,
5Save us with your POWERFUL hand, and answer us so that those who are dear to you may be rescued.
11God has spoken once. I have heard it said twice: "POWER belongs to God.
2So I look for you in the holy place to see your POWER and your glory.
6the one who set the mountains in place with his strength, the one who is clothed with POWER,
3Say to God, "How awe-inspiring are your deeds! Your POWER is so great that your enemies will cringe in front of you.
33God rides through the ancient heaven, the highest heaven. Listen! He makes his voice heard, his POWERFUL voice. 34Acknowledge the POWER of God. His majesty is over Israel, and his POWER is in the skies. 35God, the God of Israel, is awe-inspiring in his holy place. He gives strength and POWER to his people. Thanks be to God!
29I am suffering and in pain. Let your saving POWER protect me, O God.
18Even when I am old and gray, do not abandon me, O God. Let me live to tell the people of this age what your strength has accomplished, to tell about your POWER to all who will come.
10Then I said, "It makes me feel sick that the POWER of the Most High is no longer the same."
4We will not hide them from our children. We will tell the next generation about the LORD's POWER and great deeds and the miraculous things he has done.
42They did not remember his POWER-- the day he freed them from their oppressor,
54He brought them into his holy land, to this mountain that his POWER had won.
61He allowed his POWER to be taken captive and handed his glory over to an oppressor.
11Let the groans of prisoners come into your presence. With your POWERFUL arm rescue those who are condemned to death.
2Appear in front of Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh. Wake up your POWER, and come to save us.
17Let your POWER rest on the man you have chosen, the son of man you strengthened for yourself.
5These are the instructions God set in place for Joseph when Joseph rose to POWER over Egypt. I heard a message I did not understand:
14I would quickly defeat their enemies. I would turn my POWER against their foes.
4Rescue weak and needy people. Help them escape the POWER of wicked people.
5abandoned with the dead, like those who have been killed and lie in graves, like those whom you no longer remember, who are cut off from your POWER.
48Can a mortal go on living and never see death? Who can set himself free from the POWER of the grave? Selah
11Who fully understands the POWER of your anger? A person fears you more when he better understands your fury.
16Let us, your servants, see what you can do. Let our children see your glorious POWER.
1The LORD rules as king! He is clothed with majesty. The LORD has clothed himself; he has armed himself with POWER. The world was set in place; it cannot be moved.
7Give to the LORD, you families of the nations. Give to the LORD glory and POWER.
10Let those who love the LORD hate evil. The one who guards the lives of his godly ones will rescue them from the POWER of wicked people.
8He saved them because of his reputation so that he could make his mighty POWER known.
10He rescued them from the POWER of the one who hated them. He rescued them from the enemy.
42Their enemies oppressed them and made them subject to their POWER.
2Let the people the LORD defended repeat these words. They are the people he defended from the POWER of their enemies
6Save us with your POWERFUL hand, and answer us so that those who are dear to you may be rescued.
2The LORD will extend your POWERFUL scepter from Zion. Rule your enemies who surround you.
6He has revealed the POWER of his works to his people by giving them the lands of other nations as an inheritance.
2His mercy toward us is POWERFUL. The LORD's faithfulness endures forever. Hallelujah!
3A wicked ruler will not be allowed to govern the land set aside for righteous people. That is why righteous people do not use their POWER to do wrong.
8O LORD, arise, and come to your resting place with the ark of your POWER.
12with a mighty hand and a POWERFUL arm-- because his mercy endures forever.
17Give thanks to the one who defeated POWERFUL kings-- because his mercy endures forever.
6People will talk about the POWER of your terrifying deeds, and I will tell about your greatness.
5Our Lord is great, and his POWER is great. There is no limit to his understanding.
27Do not hold back anything good from those who are entitled to it when you have the POWER to do so.
18Flipping a coin ends quarrels and settles issues between POWERFUL people.
21The tongue has the POWER of life and death, and those who love to talk will have to eat their own words.
5A strong man knows how to use his strength, but a person with knowledge is even more POWERFUL.
3Don't give your strength to women or your POWER to those who ruin kings.
1Next, I turned to look at all the acts of oppression that make people suffer under the sun. Look at the tears of those who suffer! No one can comfort them. Their oppressors have all the POWER. No one can comfort those who suffer.
19It is a gift from God when God gives some people wealth and possessions, the POWER to enjoy them, the ability to accept their lot in life, and the ability to rejoice in their own hard work.
2God gives one person riches, wealth, and honor so that he doesn't lack anything he wants. Yet, God doesn't give him the POWER to enjoy any of them. Instead, a stranger enjoys them. This is pointless and is a painful tragedy.
4Since a king's word has such POWER, no one can ask him what he is doing.
8No one has the POWER to prevent the spirit of life from leaving. No one has control over the day of his own death. There is no way to avoid the war against death. Wickedness will not save wicked people from dying.
14There was a small town with a few soldiers in it, and a POWERFUL king came to attack it. He surrounded it and blockaded it.
25I will turn my POWER against you. I will remove your impurities with bleach. I will get rid of all your impurities.
25That's why the anger of the LORD burns hot against his people, and he is ready to use his POWER to strike them down. The hills tremble, and dead bodies lie like garbage in the streets. Even after all this, his anger has not disappeared, and he is still ready to use his POWER.
7That is why the Lord is going to bring against them the raging and POWERFUL floodwaters of the Euphrates River-- the king of Assyria with all his POWER. It will overflow all its channels and go over all its banks.
11This is what the LORD said with his POWERFUL hand on me. He warned me not to follow the ways of these people:
12the Arameans from the east and the Philistines from the west. They will devour Israel with open mouths. Even after all this, his anger will not disappear, and he is still ready to use his POWER.
17That is why the Lord isn't happy with their young men, nor will he show compassion for their orphans and widows. Every one of them is a godless evildoer, and every mouth speaks foolishness. Even after all this, his anger will not disappear, and he is still ready to use his POWER.
21Manasseh is against Ephraim. Ephraim is against Manasseh. Together they attack Judah. Even after all this, his anger will not disappear, and he is still ready to use his POWER.
4Nothing's left but to crouch among prisoners and to fall with those who are killed. Even after all this, his anger will not disappear, and he is still ready to use his POWER.
10My POWER has reached kingdoms which have idols. They had more carved statues than Jerusalem or Samaria.
13The king will say, "I did this with my own two POWERFUL hands. I did this with my wisdom, because I am so clever. I've eliminated the boundaries of nations. I've looted treasuries. I've brought down people like a mighty man.
16That is why the Almighty LORD of Armies will send a degenerative disease against brave men. A flame will be turned into a raging fire under his POWER.
33Now look! The Almighty LORD of Armies will trim the branches with terrifying POWER. The highest trees will be cut down. The tallest ones will be brought down.
2The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him-- the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of advice and POWER, the Spirit of knowledge and fear of the LORD.
11At that time the Lord will use his POWER again to recover what remains of his people in Assyria, Upper and Lower Egypt, Sudan, Elam, Babylonia, Hamath, and the islands of the sea.
26This is the plan determined for the whole earth. This is how he will use his POWER against all the nations. 27The LORD of Armies has planned it. Who can stop it? He is ready to use his POWER. Who can turn it back?
10The LORD's POWER will be on this mountain. Moab will be trampled beneath him like straw that is trampled in a pile of manure.
11O LORD, your POWER is visible, but they do not see it. They will see how devoted your people are, and they will be put to shame. Your burning anger will destroy your enemies.
1On that day the LORD will use his fierce and POWERFUL sword to punish Leviathan, that slippery snake, Leviathan, that twisting snake. He will kill that monster which lives in the sea.
2The Lord has one who is strong and POWERFUL. He is like a hailstorm, a destructive wind. He is like a thunderstorm, an overwhelming flood. He will throw them to the ground forcefully.
3The Egyptians are humans, not gods. Their horses are flesh and blood, not spirit. When the LORD uses his POWERFUL hand, the one who gives help will stumble, and the one who receives help will fall. Both will die together.
10The Almighty LORD is coming with POWER to rule with authority. His reward is with him, and the people he has won arrive ahead of him.
26Look at the sky and see. Who created these things? Who brings out the stars one by one? He calls them all by name. Because of the greatness of his might and the strength of his POWER, not one of them is missing.
20People will see and know. Together they will consider and understand that the LORD's POWER has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it.
13"From the first day I was the one who did this. No one can rescue people from my POWER. When I do something, who can undo it?"
1This is what the LORD says about Cyrus, his anointed one: I have held him by his right hand so he could conquer the nations ahead of him, strip kings of their POWER, and open doors ahead of him so that the gates would not be shut.
2Why was no one here when I came? Why was no one here to answer when I called? Am I too weak to reclaim you? Don't I have the POWER to rescue you? I dry up the sea with my command, and I turn rivers into deserts. Their fish stink because there is no water, and people die of thirst.
10The LORD will show his holy POWER to all the nations. All the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God.
1Who has believed our message? To whom has the LORD's POWER been revealed?
16He sees that there's no one to help. He's astounded that there's no one to intercede. So with his own POWER he wins a victory. His righteousness supports him.
1Who is this coming from Bozrah in Edom with his clothes stained bright red? Who is this dressed in splendor, going forward with great strength? "It is I, the LORD. I am coming to announce my victory. I am POWERFUL enough to save you."
5I looked, but there was no help. I was astounded that there was no outside support. So with my own POWER I won a victory. My anger supported me.
12Where is the one who sent his POWERFUL arm to support the right hand of Moses? Where is the one who divided the water in front of them to make an everlasting name for himself?
14When you see it, your heart will rejoice and you will flourish like new grass. The POWER of the LORD will be made known to his servants, but he will condemn his enemies.
27Like cages filled with birds, their houses are filled with deceit. That is why they become POWERFUL and rich.
12Their households, their fields, and their wives will be turned over to others. I will use my POWER against those who live in the land," declares the LORD.
6No one is like you, O LORD. You are great. Your name is POWERFUL.
12The LORD made the earth by his POWER. He set up the world by his skill. He stretched out the world by his understanding.

21I will rescue you from the POWER of wicked people and free you from the POWER of tyrants.
21That is what I will teach them. This time I will make my POWER and my strength known to them. Then they will know that my name is the LORD."
13Sing to the LORD! Praise the LORD! He has rescued the lives of needy people from the POWER of wicked people.
5I will fight you in anger, fury, and rage with my POWERFUL hand and my mighty arm.
5'I used my great strength and my POWERFUL arm to make the earth along with the people and the animals on it. I give it to anyone I please.
8"'Suppose nations or kingdoms won't serve or surrender to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. I will punish those nations by wars, famines, and plagues, until I have put an end to them by Nebuchadnezzar's POWER, declares the LORD.
17'Almighty LORD, you made heaven and earth by your great strength and POWERFUL arm. Nothing is too hard for you.
21You brought your people from Egypt with miraculous signs and amazing things, with a mighty hand and a POWERFUL arm, and with great terror.

3the LORD spoke his word to the priest Ezekiel, son of Buzi, in Babylon by the Chebar River. The POWER of the LORD came over Ezekiel.
14Then the Spirit lifted me and took me away. I went away feeling bitter and angry. The strong POWER of the LORD came over me.
22The POWER of the LORD came over me. He said, "Get up, and go to the plain. I will speak to you there."
14I will use my POWER against them and destroy the land, from the desert to Diblah. Then they will know that I am the LORD.'"
1On the fifth day of the sixth month in the sixth year, I was sitting in my home. Judah's leaders were sitting in front of me. The POWER of the Almighty LORD came over me.
9I will use my POWER against the prophets who see false visions and predict things that don't come true. They will not help my people make decisions or be recorded in the records of the nation of Israel. They won't even enter Israel. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
21I will tear off your magic veils and rescue my people from your POWER so that they will no longer be under your control. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
23That is why you will no longer see false visions or make predictions. I will rescue my people from your POWER. Then you will know that I am the LORD.'"
9"'If a prophet is tricked into giving a prophecy, it is I, the LORD, who tricked the prophet. I will use my POWER against you and destroy you from among my people Israel.
13"Son of man, suppose a country sins against me by being unfaithful to me. I will use my POWER against it, cut off its food supply, send a famine to it, and destroy its people and animals.
27"'So I used my POWER against you. I took away some of your land, and I handed you over to your greedy enemies, the Philistines, who were ashamed of what you had done.
30"'You have no will POWER! declares the Almighty LORD. You do everything a shameless prostitute does.
14so that it would remain a humiliated country and be unable to regain its POWER. The country could only survive by keeping the treaty.
22But I didn't use my POWER so that my name would not be dishonored among the nations who had watched me bring the Israelites out of Egypt.
33"'As I live, declares the Almighty LORD, I will rule you with a mighty hand and a POWERFUL arm, and I will pour out my fury. 34I will bring you out from the nations and gather you from the countries where I have scattered you with my mighty hand and POWERFUL arm. I will pour out my fury.
6"'See how all the princes of Israel who live in you have used their POWER to murder people.

7That is why I will use my POWER against you and hand you over to the nations as loot. I will wipe you out from among the nations, make you disappear, and destroy you. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
13So this is what the Almighty LORD says: I will use my POWER against Edom. I will wipe out people and animals. I will turn the land into ruins from Teman to Dedan. People will die in battle.
16So this is what the Almighty LORD says: I'm going to use my POWER against the Philistines, cut off the Cherethites, and destroy the people that are left on the coast.
18At Tahpanhes the day will turn dark when I break Egypt's POWER. Egypt's strong army will be defeated. Clouds will cover Egypt, and people from its villages will go into exile.
6All the birds made their nests in its branches. All the wild animals gave birth to their young under it. All the POWERFUL nations lived in its shade.
29"Edom is there with its kings and its princes. They used to be POWERFUL, but now they lie with those who were killed in battle. They lie there with the godless people and with those who have gone down to the pit. 30"All the rulers from the north and all the people from Sidon are there. They, too, went down with the dead. They are disgraced because they terrified people with their POWER. They were godless people. Now they lie with those who were killed in battle. They suffer disgrace with those who went down to the pit.
22The evening before the refugee arrived, the POWER of the LORD came over me. On the morning the refugee arrived, the LORD made me speak. So I spoke, and I was no longer quiet.
28I will turn the land into a barren wasteland. People will no longer brag about its POWER. The mountains of Israel will become so ruined that no one will travel through them.
3Tell it, 'This is what the Almighty LORD says: I'm against you, Mount Seir. I will use my POWER against you, and you will become a wasteland.
1The POWER of the LORD came over me. The LORD brought me out by his Spirit and put me down in the middle of a valley. The valley was filled with bones.
12I will come to rob them and loot them. I will use my POWER against the ruins that people are living in again. I will use it against the people who were gathered from the nations. These people have cattle and property, and they live in the world."
21"I will show my greatness among the nations. All the nations will see how I will turn my POWER against them to punish them.
1It was the tenth day of the month in the beginning of the twenty-fifth year of our captivity and fourteen years after Jerusalem was captured. At that time the LORD's POWER came over me, and he brought me to Jerusalem.
10The astrologers answered the king, "No one on earth can tell the king what he asks. No other king, no matter how great and POWERFUL, has ever asked such a thing of any magician, psychic, or astrologer.
20He said, "Praise God's name from everlasting to everlasting because he is wise and POWERFUL.
23God of my ancestors, I thank and praise you. You gave me wisdom and POWER. You told me the answer to our question. You told us what the king wants to know."
37"Your Majesty, you are the greatest king. The God of heaven has given you a kingdom. He has given you POWER, strength, and honor.
39Another kingdom, inferior to yours, will rise to POWER after you. Then there will be a third kingdom, a kingdom of bronze, that will rule the whole world.
15When you hear the sound of the rams' horns, flutes, lyres, harps, and three-stringed harps playing at the same time with all other kinds of instruments, will you bow down and worship the gold statue I made? If you don't worship it, you will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace. What god can save you from my POWER then?"
17If our God, whom we honor, can save us from a blazing furnace and from your POWER, he will, Your Majesty.
3His miraculous signs are impressive. He uses his POWER to do amazing things. His kingdom is an eternal kingdom. His POWER lasts from one generation to the next.
17The guardians have announced this decision. The holy ones have announced this so that every living creature will know that the Most High has POWER over human kingdoms. He gives them to whomever he wishes. He can place the lowest of people in charge of them.'"
22You are that tree, Your Majesty. You grew and became strong and mighty until you reached the sky. Your POWER reaches the most distant part of the world.
25You will be forced away from people and live with the wild animals. You will eat grass like cattle. The dew from the sky will make you wet. And seven time periods will pass until you realize that the Most High has POWER over human kingdoms and that he gives them to whomever he wishes.
30The king thought, "Look how great Babylon is! I built the royal palace by my own impressive POWER and for my glorious honor."
32You will be forced away from people and live with the wild animals. You will eat grass like cattle. And seven time periods will pass until you realize that the Most High has POWER over human kingdoms and that he gives them to whomever he wishes."
34At the end of the seven time periods, I, Nebuchadnezzar, looked up to heaven, and my mind came back to me. I thanked the Most High, and I praised and honored the one who lives forever, because his POWER lasts forever and his kingdom lasts from one generation to the next.
19People from every province, nation, and language trembled and were terrified by him, because God gave him POWER. Nebuchadnezzar killed whomever he wanted to kill, and he kept alive whomever he wanted to keep alive. He promoted whomever he wanted to promote, and he demoted whomever he wanted to demote.
21He was chased away from people, and his mind was changed into an animal's mind. He lived with wild donkeys, ate grass like cattle, and his body became wet with dew from the sky. This happened until he realized that the Most High God has POWER over human kingdoms. God puts whomever he wishes in charge of them.
23But you made yourself greater than the Lord of heaven. You had the utensils from his temple brought to you. You, your nobles, wives, and concubines drank wine from them. You praised your gods made of silver, gold, bronze, iron, wood, or stone. These gods can't see, hear, or know anything. You didn't honor God, who has POWER over your life and everything you do.
26I decree that in every part of my kingdom people should tremble with terror in front of Daniel's God, the living God who continues forever. His kingdom will never be destroyed. His POWER lasts to the end of time.
6After this, I saw another animal. It looked like a leopard. On its back it had four wings, like the wings of a bird. The animal also had four heads. It was given POWER to rule.
12The POWER of the rest of the animals was taken away, but they were allowed to live for a period of time.
14He was given POWER, honor, and a kingdom. People from every province, nation, and language were to serve him. His POWER is an eternal POWER that will not be taken away. His kingdom will never be destroyed.
17He said, "These four large animals are four kingdoms that will rise to POWER on the earth.
24The ten horns are ten kings that will rise to POWER from that kingdom. Another king will rise to POWER after them. He will be different from the kings who came before him, and he will humble three kings.
26But judgment will be handed down, his POWER will be taken away, and he will be completely and permanently destroyed. 27The kingdom, along with the POWER and greatness of all the kingdoms under heaven, will be given to the holy people of the Most High. Their kingdom is eternal. All other POWERs will serve and obey them."
4I saw the ram charging west, north, and south. No other animal could stand in front of it, and no one could escape from its POWER. It did anything it pleased and continued to grow.
7I saw it come closer to the ram. The goat was extremely angry with the ram, so it attacked the ram. It broke both of the ram's horns. The ram didn't have the strength to stand up against the goat. So the ram was thrown down on the ground and trampled. No one could rescue the ram from the goat's POWER. 8The male goat became very important. But when the goat became POWERFUL, his large horn broke off. In its place grew four horns. They corresponded to the four winds of heaven. 9Out of one of the horns came a small horn. It gained POWER over the south, the east, and the beautiful land. 10It continued to gain POWER until it reached the army of heaven. It threw some of the army of heaven, the stars, down on the ground and trampled them.
23"In the last days of those kingdoms, when rebellions are finished, a stern-looking king who understands mysterious things will rise to POWER. 24He will become very strong, but not by his own strength. He will cause astounding destruction and will be successful in everything he does. He will destroy those who are POWERFUL along with some holy people. 25He will cleverly use his POWER to deceive others successfully. He will consider himself to be great and destroy many people when they don't expect it. He will oppose the Commander of Commanders, but he will be defeated, though not by any human POWER.
6After a few years the southern and northern kings will make an alliance. The southern king's daughter will go to the northern king to make peace. She won't hold on to her POWER, and the alliance won't last. She, those who came with her, and the one who fathered and protected her will be given away.
16The invader will do as he pleases, and no one will be able to withstand his attack. He will rise to POWER in the beautiful land and it will be completely under his control. 17"Then the northern king will decide to invade with the POWER of his entire kingdom, and some decent men will invade with him. He will give the southern king his daughter as a wife in order to destroy the southern kingdom. But this will not succeed or help him.
23After an alliance has been made with him, he will act deceitfully and rise to POWER with only a few people.
25"With a large army he will summon his POWER and courage against the southern king, who will prepare for war with a large, strong army. But the southern king won't be able to withstand him because of the schemes devised against him.
41He will invade the beautiful land, and tens of thousands will be defeated. But Edom, Moab, and the leaders of the Ammonites will escape from his POWER. 42He will use his POWER against many countries. Even Egypt will not escape.
7I heard the man dressed in linen clothes who was above the river. He raised his right hand and left hand to heaven and swore an oath by the one who lives forever. He said, "It will be for a time, times, and half of a time. When the POWER of the holy people has been completely shattered, then all these things will be finished."
10I will show her naked body to her lovers, and no one will rescue her from my POWER.
13You have planted wickedness and harvested evil. You have eaten the fruit that your lies produced. You have trusted your own POWER and your many warriors.
14"I want to free them from the POWER of the grave. I want to reclaim them from death. Death, I want to be a plague to you. Grave, I want to destroy you. I won't even think of changing my plans."
8I will cut off those living in Ashdod and the one who holds the scepter in Ashkelon. I will turn my POWER against Ekron. The rest of the Philistines will die. The Almighty LORD has said this.
4The LORD sent a violent wind over the sea. The storm was so POWERFUL that the ship was in danger of breaking up.
8But I am filled with the POWER of the LORD's Spirit, with justice, and with strength. So I will tell the descendants of Jacob about their crimes and the nation of Israel about its sins.
9You will use your POWER against your opponents, and all your enemies will be destroyed.
3Their hands are skilled in doing evil. Officials ask for gifts. Judges accept bribes. POWERFUL people dictate what they want. So they scheme together.
4His brightness is like the sunlight. Rays of light stream from his hand. That is where his POWER is hidden.
4"I will use my POWER against Judah and against those who live in Jerusalem. I will remove the faithful few of Baal from this place and the names of the pagan priests along with my priests.
13The LORD will use his POWER against the north and destroy Assyria. He will turn Nineveh into a deserted ruin, a dried up wasteland like the desert.
22I will overthrow the thrones of kingdoms and destroy the POWER of nations. I will overthrow chariots and their riders, and the horses will fall along with their riders. They will kill one another with swords.
6Then he replied, "This is the word the LORD spoke to Zerubbabel: You won't succeed by might or by POWER, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of Armies.
22Many people and POWERFUL nations will come to seek the LORD of Armies in Jerusalem and to ask the LORD for a blessing.
6The LORD declares, "I will no longer have pity on those who live in the land. I am going to hand the people over to their neighbors and their king, who will crush the land. And I won't rescue any of them from their POWER."
11I baptize you with water so that you will change the way you think and act. But the one who comes after me is more POWERFUL than I. I am not worthy to remove his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
22Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, didn't we prophesy in your name? Didn't we force out demons and do many miracles by the POWER and authority of your name?'
54Jesus went to his hometown and taught the people in the synagogue in a way that amazed them. People were asking, "Where did this man get this wisdom and the POWER to do these miracles?
2He said to his officials, "This is John the Baptizer! He has come back to life. That's why he has the POWER to perform these miracles."
25Jesus called the apostles and said, "You know that the rulers of nations have absolute POWER over people and their officials have absolute authority over people.
29Jesus answered, "You're mistaken because you don't know the Scriptures or God's POWER.
29"Immediately after the misery of those days, the sun will turn dark, the moon will not give light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the POWERs of the universe will be shaken. 30"Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky. All the people on earth will cry in agony when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds in the sky with POWER and great glory.
2Suddenly, there was a POWERFUL earthquake. An angel of the Lord had come down from heaven, rolled the stone away, and was sitting on it.
7He announced, "The one who comes after me is more POWERFUL than I. I am not worthy to bend down and untie his sandal straps.
30At that moment Jesus felt POWER had gone out of him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who touched my clothes?"
14King Herod heard about Jesus, because Jesus' name had become well-known. Some people were saying, "John the Baptizer has come back to life. That's why he has the POWER to perform these miracles."
1He said to them, "I can guarantee this truth: Some people who are standing here will not die until they see the kingdom of God arrive with POWER."
18Whenever the spirit brings on a seizure, it throws him to the ground. Then he foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth, and becomes exhausted. I asked your disciples to force the spirit out, but they didn't have the POWER to do it."
38John said to Jesus, "Teacher, we saw someone forcing demons out of a person by using the POWER and authority of your name. We tried to stop him because he was not one of us."
42Jesus called the apostles and said, "You know that the acknowledged rulers of nations have absolute POWER over people and their officials have absolute authority over people.
24Jesus said to them, "Aren't you mistaken because you don't know the Scriptures or God's POWER?
25the stars will fall from the sky, and the POWERs of the universe will be shaken. 26"Then people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great POWER and glory.
17"These are the miraculous signs that will accompany believers: They will use the POWER and authority of my name to force demons out of people. They will speak new languages.
17He will go ahead of the Lord with the spirit and POWER that Elijah had. He will change parents' attitudes toward their children. He will change disobedient people so that they will accept the wisdom of those who have God's approval. In this way he will prepare the people for their Lord."
35The angel answered her, "The Holy Spirit will come to you, and the POWER of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore, the holy child developing inside you will be called the Son of God.
51"He displayed his mighty POWER. He scattered those who think too highly of themselves.
71He promised to save us from our enemies and from the POWER of all who hate us.
74He promised to rescue us from our enemies' POWER so that we could serve him without fear
16John replied to all of them, "I baptize you with water. But the one who is more POWERFUL than I is coming. I am not worthy to untie his sandal straps. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
6The devil said to him, "I will give you all the POWER and glory of these kingdoms. All of it has been given to me, and I give it to anyone I please.
14Jesus returned to Galilee. The POWER of the Spirit was with him, and the news about him spread throughout the surrounding country.
36Everyone was stunned. They said to one another, "What kind of command is this? With authority and POWER he gives orders to evil spirits, and they come out."
17One day when Jesus was teaching, some Pharisees and experts in Moses' Teachings were present. They had come from every village in Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem. Jesus had the POWER of the Lord to heal.
19The entire crowd was trying to touch him because POWER was coming from him and curing all of them.
46Jesus said, "Someone touched me. I know POWER has gone out of me."
1Jesus called the twelve apostles together and gave them POWER and authority over every demon and POWER and authority to cure diseases.
43Everyone was amazed to see God's wonderful POWER. Everyone was amazed at all the things that Jesus was doing. So he said to his disciples,
49John replied, "Master, we saw someone forcing demons out of a person by using the POWER and authority of your name. We tried to stop him because he was not one of us."
17The 70 disciples came back very happy. They said, "Lord, even demons obey us when we use the POWER and authority of your name!"
19I have given you the authority to trample snakes and scorpions and to destroy the enemy's POWER. Nothing will hurt you.
20But if I force out demons with the help of God's POWER, then the kingdom of God has come to you.
5I'll show you the one you should be afraid of. Be afraid of the one who has the POWER to throw you into hell after killing you. I'm warning you to be afraid of him.
26People will faint as they fearfully wait for what will happen to the world. Indeed, the POWERs of the universe will be shaken. 27"Then people will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with POWER and great glory.
36Be alert at all times. Pray so that you have the POWER to escape everything that is about to happen and to stand in front of the Son of Man."
25Jesus said to them, "The kings of nations have POWER over their people, and those in authority call themselves friends of the people.
19"What happened?" he asked. They said to him, "We were discussing what happened to Jesus from Nazareth. He was a POWERFUL prophet in what he did and said in the sight of God and all the people.
49"I'm sending you what my Father promised. Wait here in the city until you receive POWER from heaven."
35The Father loves his Son and has put everything in his POWER.
38In this way the words of the prophet Isaiah came true: "Lord, who has believed our message? To whom has the Lord's POWER been revealed?"
30The ruler of this world has no POWER over me. But he's coming, so I won't talk with you much longer.
11I won't be in the world much longer, but they are in the world, and I'm coming back to you. Holy Father, keep them safe by the POWER of your name, the name that you gave me, so that their unity may be like ours. 12While I was with them, I kept them safe by the POWER of your name, the name that you gave me. I watched over them, and none of them, except one person, became lost. So Scripture came true.
8But you will receive POWER when the Holy Spirit comes to you. Then you will be my witnesses to testify about me in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
24But God raised him from death to life and destroyed the pains of death, because death had no POWER to hold him.
33God used his POWER to give Jesus the highest position. Jesus has also received and has poured out the Holy Spirit as the Father had promised, and this is what you're seeing and hearing. 34David didn't go up to heaven, but he said, 'The Lord said to my Lord, "Take my highest position of POWER
6However, Peter said to him, "I don't have any money, but I'll give you what I do have. Through the POWER of Jesus Christ from Nazareth, walk!"
12When Peter saw this, he said to the people, "Men of Israel, why are you amazed about this man? Why are you staring at us as though we have made him walk by our own POWER or godly life?
16We believe in the one named Jesus. Through his POWER alone this man, whom you know, was healed, as all of you saw.
7They made Peter and John stand in front of them and then asked, "By what POWER or in whose name did you do this?"
10You and all the people of Israel must understand that this man stands in your presence with a healthy body because of the POWER of Jesus Christ from Nazareth. You crucified Jesus Christ, but God has brought him back to life.
12No one else can save us. Indeed, we can be saved only by the POWER of the one named Jesus and not by any other person."
28Through your will and POWER, they did everything that you had already decided should be done.
30Show your POWER by healing, performing miracles, and doing amazing things through the POWER and the name of your holy servant Jesus."
33With great POWER the apostles continued to testify that the Lord Jesus had come back to life. God's abundant good will was with all of them.
31God used his POWER to give Jesus the highest position as leader and savior. He did this to lead the people of Israel to him, to change the way they think and act, and to forgive their sins.
8Stephen was a man filled with God's favor and POWER. He did amazing things and performed miracles.
10Everyone from children to adults paid attention to him. They said, "This man is the POWER of God, and that POWER is called great."
19and said, "Give me this POWER so that anyone I place my hands on will receive the Holy Spirit."
22Saul grew more POWERFUL, and he confused the Jews living in Damascus by proving that Jesus was the Messiah.
28Then Saul went throughout Jerusalem with the disciples. He spoke boldly with the POWER and authority of the Lord.
38You know that God anointed Jesus from Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with POWER. Jesus went everywhere and did good things, such as healing everyone who was under the devil's POWER. Jesus did these things because God was with him.
21The Lord's POWER was with his followers, and a large number of people believed and turned to the Lord.
17The God of the people of Israel chose our ancestors and made them a strong nation while they lived as foreigners in Egypt. He used his POWERFUL arm to bring them out of Egypt,
24A Jew named Apollos, who had been born in Alexandria, arrived in the city of Ephesus. He was an eloquent speaker and knew how to use the Scriptures in a POWERFUL way.
20In this POWERFUL way the word of the Lord was spreading and gaining strength.
12"I was carrying out these activities when I went to the city of Damascus. I had the POWER and authority of the chief priests.
14Soon a POWERFUL wind (called a northeaster) blew from the island.
4In his spiritual, holy nature he was declared the Son of God. This was shown in a POWERFUL way when he came back to life.
16I'm not ashamed of the Good News. It is God's POWER to save everyone who believes, Jews first and Greeks as well.
20From the creation of the world, God's invisible qualities, his eternal POWER and divine nature, have been clearly observed in what he made. As a result, people have no excuse.
9What, then, is the situation? Do we have any advantage? Not at all. We have already accused everyone (both Jews and Greeks) of being under the POWER of sin,
4When we were baptized into his death, we were placed into the tomb with him. As Christ was brought back from death to life by the glorious POWER of the Father, so we, too, should live a new kind of life.
9We know that Christ, who was brought back to life, will never die again. Death no longer has any POWER over him. 10When he died, he died once and for all to sin's POWER. But now he lives, and he lives for God. 11So consider yourselves dead to sin's POWER but living for God in the POWER Christ Jesus gives you.
13Never offer any part of your body to sin's POWER. No part of your body should ever be used to do any ungodly thing. Instead, offer yourselves to God as people who have come back from death and are now alive. Offer all the parts of your body to God. Use them to do everything that God approves of. 14Certainly, sin shouldn't have POWER over you because you're not controlled by laws, but by God's favor.
1Don't you realize, brothers and sisters, that laws have POWER over people only as long as they are alive? (I'm speaking to people who are familiar with Moses' Teachings.)
39or POWERs in the world above or in the world below, or by anything else in creation.
17For example, Scripture says to Pharaoh, "I put you here for this reason: to demonstrate my POWER through you and to spread my name throughout the earth."

10Finally, receive your POWER from the Lord and from his mighty strength.
12This is not a wrestling match against a human opponent. We are wrestling with rulers, authorities, the POWERs who govern this world of darkness, and spiritual forces that control evil in the heavenly world.
