From the King James Version of the Holy Bible
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:
I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
GOD'S WORD IS LIFE AND HEALTH
My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear
unto my sayings. 21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. 22 For they are life unto
those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
GOD'S WORD IS POWERFUL
12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful,
and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 Neither is there any creature
that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of
God, let us hold fast our profession.
15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched
with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make
For I will restore health unto thee, and I will
heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD.
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because
the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim
liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound
2 To proclaim
the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise
for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be
John 14: 10-14
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father,
and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth
11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me
for the very works' sake.
12 | Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the
works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily,
verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. 24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing
in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because
we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. 23 And this is his commandment, That we should
believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.
1 John 5:12-15
12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that
hath not the Son of God hath not life.
13 These things have I written unto you that believe
on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son
14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according
to his will, he heareth us:
15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that
we have the petitions that we desired of him.
CALL FOR THE ELDERS
13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is
any merry? let him sing psalms.
14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the
church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.
The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
DON'T GIVE UP
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye
shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth;
and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
9 Or what man is
there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
10 Or if he ask a fish,
will he give him a serpent?
11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your
children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but
of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your
heart, all you who hope in the Lord.
Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble
knees. Say to those who are fearful-hearted, "Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the
recompense of God; He will come and save you."
So I will strengthen them in the Lord, and they
shall walk up and down in His name, says the Lord.
While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler
of the synagogue's house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master.
when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.
1 He that dwelleth 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 will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of
the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under
his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
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.
7 A thousand shall
fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
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.
With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
WAIT ON THE LORD
Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall
strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord!
He gives power to the weak, and to those who
have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those
who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.
The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who
fear Him, and delivers them.
And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and
thou shalt glorify me.
For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk
before God in the light of the living?
Ps 119:153 RESH.
Consider mine affliction, and deliver me: for I do not forget thy law.
Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me according to thy word.
I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead
him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.
O Lord, by these things men live, and in all these
things is the life of my spirit: so wilt thou recover me, and make me to live.
And I will restore to you the years that the locust
hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal
thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.
I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead
him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.
JESUS HEALS EVERY DISEASE AND SICKNESS
And Jesus went about all the cities and villages,
teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among
When the even was come, they brought unto him many that
were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:
And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and
he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost
and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought
unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and
those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.
And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching,
that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and
Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.
But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on
earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.
Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that
Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.
And ran through that whole region round about, and began
to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was.
And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities,
or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment:
and as many as touched him were made whole.
Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick
with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD
hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to
the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable
year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
3 To appoint
unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the
spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
Lu 4: 17
And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet
Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
18* The Spirit
of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted,
to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
19* To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
20* And he closed the
book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened
21* And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.
JESUS COMMANDS THOSE WHO BELIEVE TO HEAL THE SICK
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and
preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but
he that believeth not shall be damned.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In
my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up
serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right
hand of God.
20* And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them,
and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him,
and that he might send them forth to preach,
15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to
cast out devils:
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast
out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave
them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.
2 And he sent them to preach
the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.
And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching
the gospel, and healing every where.
And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil
many that were sick, and healed them.
And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them,
The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
GREATER WORKS SHALL YE DO
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth
on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
11 And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: 12* So that from his body were brought unto
the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.
Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the
streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.
There came also a multitude out of the cities round
about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.
For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out
of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed.
GIFTS OF HEALING
1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not
have you ignorant.
4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 And there
are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations,
but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given
to every man to profit withal.
&8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom;
to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit;
to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles;
to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally
as he will.
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one
body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all
speak with tongues? do all interpret?
INTERCEDE FOR THE SICK Nu 12:13 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, Heal
her now, O God, I beseech thee.
When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into
Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders
of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.
And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy,
which was borne of four.
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for
we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot
And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the
mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost
that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is
passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
15* For we
have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as
we are, yet without sin.
16* Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we
may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices
2 Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for
that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.
REPENT AND BE HEALED
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble
themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their
sin, and will heal their land.
Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people,
Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee:
on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD.
Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal
me; for my bones are vexed.
I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for
I have sinned against thee.
Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn,
and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your
backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the LORD our God.
Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and
I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.
And the LORD shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and
heal it: and they shall return even to the LORD, and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them.
I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely:
for mine anger is turned away from him.
For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears
are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their
ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
VISIT THE SICK
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all
the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32* And before him shall be gathered all nations:
and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33* And he shall set the
sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34* Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye
blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35* For I was an hungred,
and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36* Naked, and ye clothed
me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37* Then shall the righteous answer him, saying,
Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38* When saw we thee a stranger, and
took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39* Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these
my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41* Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed,
into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42* For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was
thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43* I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and
in prison, and ye visited me not.
44* Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst,
or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45* Then shall he answer them, saying,
Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46* And these shall
go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
JESUS HEALED ON THE SABBATH
And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered.
And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.
And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the
sabbath day; that they might accuse him.
And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he
would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him.
And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees,
saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?
Ac 4:22 For the man was above forty years old, on whom
this miracle of healing was shewed.
I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that
which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick:
And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy,
lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven
But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that
be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases,
and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.
HEALING STORIES FROM THE BIBLE
FRIENDS "RAISE THE ROOF" TO GET TO JESUS
And again he entered into Capernaum after some days;
and it was noised that he was in the house.
2 And straightway many were gathered together,
insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them.
3* And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.
4* And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when
they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.
5* When Jesus
saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.
there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
7* Why doth
this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?
8* And immediately when
Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your
9* Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee;
or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?
10* But that ye may know that the Son of man
hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)
11* I say unto thee,
Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.
12 And immediately he arose, took
up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it
on this fashion.
SAUL HEALED AFTER BEING STRUCK BLIND
10* And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias;
and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord. 11* And the Lord said unto him, Arise,
and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold,
he prayeth, 12* And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive
his sight. 13* Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at
Jerusalem: 14* And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. 15* But the Lord said
unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children
of Israel: 16* For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake. 17* And Ananias went his way, and entered
into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way
as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost. 18* And immediately
there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.
AENEAS HEALED OF PALSY
32* And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all quarters,
he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lydda. 33* And there he found a certain man named Aeneas, which had kept his
bed eight years, and was sick of the palsy. 34* And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and
make thy bed. And he arose immediately. 35* And all that dwelt at Lydda and Saron saw him, and turned to the Lord.
TABITHA (DORCAS) BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE
36* Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full
of good works and almsdeeds which she did. 37* And it came to pass in those days, that she was sick, and died: whom when they
had washed, they laid her in an upper chamber. 38* And forasmuch as Lydda was nigh to Joppa, and the disciples had heard that
Peter was there, they sent unto him two men, desiring him that he would not delay to come to them. 39* Then Peter arose and
went with them. When he was come, they brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping, and shewing
the coats and garments which Dorcas made, while she was with them. 40* But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, and
prayed; and turning him to the body said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Peter, she sat up. 41*
And he gave her his hand, and lifted her up, and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive. 42* And it
was known throughout all Joppa; and many believed in the Lord.
SNAKE BITES PAUL AND FATHER OF PUBLIUS HEALED OF FEVER AND BLOODY FLUX
1* And when they were escaped, then they knew that the island was called Melita. 2* And the barbarous
people shewed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one, because of the present rain, and
because of the cold. 3* And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of
the heat, and fastened on his hand. 4* And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves,
No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live. 5 And he shook
off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm. 6 Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly:
but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.
7* In the same quarters were possessions of the chief man of the island, whose name was Publius; who received us, and lodged
us three days courteously. 8* And it came to pass, that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and of a bloody flux: to
whom Paul entered in, and prayed, and laid his hands on him, and healed him. 9 So when this was done, others also, which had
diseases in the island, came, and were healed:
