Love, Biblical Examples

Genesis 29:18-28      AND JACOB LOVED RACHEL, AND SAID, “I WILL SERVE YOU SEVEN YEARS FOR YOUR YOUNGER DAUGHTER RACHEL.”
    AND LABAN SAID TO HIM, “IT IS BETTER THAT I SHOULD GIVE HER TO YOU, THAN THAT I SHOULD GIVE HER TO ANOTHER MAN; DWELL WITH ME.”
    AND JACOB SERVED FOR RACHEL SEVEN YEARS, AND THEY WERE BEFORE HIM AS A FEW DAYS, BECAUSE OF HIS LOVING HER.
    AND JACOB SAID TO LABAN, “GIVE ME MY WO-MAN, FOR MY DAYS ARE FULFILLED, THAT I MAY GO IN TO HER.”
    AND LABAN GATHERED TOGETHER ALL THE MEN OF THE PLACE, AND MADE A WEDDING-FIESTA.
    AND IT WAS EVENING, AND HE TOOK HIS DAUGHTER LEA, AND BROUGHT HER IN TO JACOB, AND JACOB WENT IN TO HER.
    AND LABAN GAVE TO HIS DAUGHTER LEA, ZELPHA HIS HANDMAID, AS A HANDMAID FOR HER.
    THEN IT CAME MORNING, AND BEHOLD, IT WAS LEA! AND JACOB SAID TO LABAN, “WHAT IS THIS THAT YOU HAVE DONE TO ME? DID I NOT SERVE YOU FOR RACHEL? AND WHY HAVE YOU DECEIVED ME?”
    AND LABAN ANSWERED, “IT IS NOT DONE THUS IN OUR COUNTRY, TO GIVE THE YOUNGER BEFORE THE ELDER.
    FULFILL THEN HER SEVENS, AND I WILL GIVE TO YOU HER ALSO IN RETURN FOR YOUR LABOUR, WHICH YOU LABOUR WITH ME, YET SEVEN OTHER YEARS.”
    AND JACOB DID SO, AND FULFILLED HER SEVENS; AND LABAN GAVE HIM HIS DAUGHTER RACHEL TO WO-MAN.

Ruth 3:8-11      AND IT CAME TO PASS AT MIDNIGHT THAT THE MAN WAS STARTLED, AND DISTURBED, AND BEHOLD, A WOMAN WAS LAYING AT HIS FEET!
    AND HE SAID, “WHO ARE YOU?” AND SHE SAID, “I AM YOUR HANDMAID RUTH; SPREAD THEREFORE YOUR SKIRT OVER YOUR HANDMAID, FOR YOU ARE A NEAR RELATION.”
    AND BOAZ SAID, “BLESSED BE YOU OF JESUS, THEOS (The Alpha & Omega), MY DAUGHTER, FOR YOU HAVE MADE YOUR LATTER KINDNESS GREATER THAN THE FORMER, IN THAT YOU FOLLOW NOT AFTER YOUNG MEN, WHETHER ANY BE POOR OR RICH.
    AND NOW FEAR NOT, MY DAUGHTER, WHATEVER YOU SHALL SAY I WILL DO TO YOU; FOR ALL THE TRIBE OF MY PEOPLE KNOWS THAT YOU ARE A VIRTUOUS WOMAN.

Tobit 8:1-8      AND WHEN THEY HAD FINISHED SUPPER, THEY BROUGHT TOBIAS IN UNTO HER.
    AND AS HE WENT, HE REMEMBERED THE WORDS OF RAPHAEL, AND TOOK THE ASHES OF THE PERFUMES, AND PUT THE HEART AND THE LIVER OF THE FISH ON IT, AND MADE A SMOKE WITH IT.
    THE WHICH SMELL WHEN THE EVIL SPIRIT HAD SMELLED, HE FLED INTO THE UTMOST PARTS OF EGYPT, AND THE ANGEL BOUND HIM.
    AND AFTER THAT THEY WERE BOTH SHUT IN TOGETHER, TOBIAS ROSE OUT OF THE BED, AND SAID, “SISTER, ARISE, AND LET US PRAY THAT THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) WOULD HAVE PITY ON US.”
    THEN BEGAN TOBIAS TO SAY, “BLESSED ARE YOU, O THEOS OF OUR FATHERS, AND BLESSED IS YOUR HOLY AND GLORIOUS NAME FOREVER; LET THE HEAVENS BLESS YOU, AND ALL YOUR CREATURES.
    YOU MADE ADAM, AND GAVE HIM EVE HIS WIFE FOR A HELPER AND STAY: OF THEM CAME MANKIND: YOU HAVE SAID, ‘IT IS NOT GOOD THAT MAN SHOULD BE ALONE; LET US MAKE UNTO HIM AN AID LIKE UNTO HIMSELF.’
    AND NOW, O LORD, I TAKE NOT THIS MY SISTER FOR IMMORALITY BUT UPRIGHTLY: THEREFORE MERCIFULLY ORDAIN THAT WE MAY BECOME AGED TOGETHER.”
    AND SHE SAID WITH HIM, “THIS IS THE TRUTH!”

Tobit 11:9-16      THEN ANNA RAN FORTH, AND FELL UPON THE NECK OF HER SON, AND SAID UNTO HIM, “SEEING I HAVE SEEN YOU, MY SON, FROM HENCEFORTH I AM CONTENT TO DIE.” AND THEY CRIED BOTH.
    TOBIT ALSO WENT FORTH TOWARD THE DOOR, AND STUMBLED: BUT HIS SON RAN UNTO HIM,
    AND TOOK HOLD OF HIS FATHER: AND HE DABBED OF THE GALL ON HIS FATHER'S EYES, SAYING, “BE OF GOOD HOPE, MY FATHER.”
    AND WHEN HIS EYES BEGAN TO SMART, HE RUBBED THEM;
    AND THE WHITENESS PILLED AWAY FROM THE CORNERS OF HIS EYES: AND WHEN HE SAW HIS SON, HE FELL UPON HIS NECK.
    AND HE WEPT, AND SAID, “BLESSED ARE YOU, O THEOS (The Alpha & Omega), AND BLESSED IS YOUR NAME FOREVER; AND BLESSED ARE ALL YOUR HOLY ANGELS:
    FOR YOU HAVE SCOURGED, AND HAVE TAKEN PITY ON ME: FOR, BEHOLD, I SEE MY SON TOBIAS.” AND HIS SON WENT IN REJOICING, AND TOLD HIS FATHER THE GREAT THINGS THAT HAD HAPPENED TO HIM IN MEDIA.
    THEN TOBIT WENT OUT TO MEET HIS DAUGHTER IN LAW AT THE GATE OF NINEVEH, REJOICING AND PRAISING THEOS: AND THEY WHICH SAW HIM GO WERE AMAZED, BECAUSE HE HAD RECEIVED HIS SIGHT.

Ecclesiastes 7:27-29      “BEHOLD, THIS HAVE I FOUND,” SAID THE PREACHER, “SEEKING BY ONE AT A TIME TO FIND OUT THE ACCOUNT,
    WHICH MY SOUL SOUGHT AFTER, BUT I FOUND NOT: FOR I HAVE FOUND ONE MAN OF A THOUSAND; BUT A WOMAN IN ALL THESE I HAVE NOT FOUND.
    BUT, BEHOLD, THIS HAVE I FOUND, THAT THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) MADE MAN UPRIGHT; BUT THEY HAVE SOUGHT OUT MANY WORKS.”

Isaiah 61:10-11      AND THEY SHALL GREATLY REJOICE IN JESUS. LET MY SOUL REJOICE IN JESUS; FOR HE HAS CLOTHED ME WITH THE ROBE OF SALVATION, AND THE GARMENT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS/HOLINESS ACCORDING TO THE LAW: HE HAS PUT A MITRE ON ME AS ON A BRIDEGROOM, AND ADORNED ME WITH ORNAMENTS AS A BRIDE.
    AND AS THE EARTH PUTTING FORTH HER FLOWERS, AND AS A GARDEN ITS SEED; SO SHALL JESUS, EVEN JESUS, CAUSE RIGHTEOUSNESS TO SPRING FORTH, AND REJOICING BEFORE ALL NATIONS.

Jeremiah 31:4      FOR I WILL BUILD YOU, AND YOU SHALL BE BUILT, O VIRGIN OF JESRAEL: YOU SHALL YET TAKE YOUR DRUM, AND GO FORTH WITH THE PARTY OF THEM THAT MAKE MERRY.

Ezekiel 16:4-14      AND AS FOR YOUR BIRTH IN THE DAY WHEREIN YOU WERE BORN, THEY DID NOT CUT YOUR UMBILICAL CORD AND YOU WERE NOT WASHED IN WATER, NEITHER WERE YOU SALTED WITH SALT, NEITHER WERE YOU SWATHED IN SWADDLING CLOTHS.
    NOR DID MY EYE PITY YOU, TO DO FOR YOU ONE OF ALL THESE THINGS, TO FEEL AT ALL FOR YOU; BUT YOU WERE CAST OUT ON THE FACE OF THE FIELD, BECAUSE OF THE PERVERSITY OF YOUR PERSON, IN THE DAY WHEREIN YOU WERE BORN.
    THEREAFTER, I PASSED BY TO YOU, AND SAW YOU POLLUTED IN YOUR BLOOD; AND I SAID TO YOU, "LIFE OUT OF YOUR BLOOD: MULTIPLY!"
    I HAVE MADE YOU AS THE SPRINGING FIELD. SO YOU DID INCREASE AND GROW, AND DID ENTER INTO GREAT CITIES. YOUR BREASTS WERE SET UP, AND YOUR HAIR GREW, WHEREAS YOU WERE NAKED AND BARE.
    AND I PASSED BY YOU AND SAW YOU, AND, BEHOLD, IT WAS YOUR TIME AND A TIME OF LODGING; AND I SPREAD MY WINGS OVER YOU, AND COVERED YOUR SHAME, AND SWORE TO YOU: AND I ENTERED INTO COVENANT WITH YOU, SAITH JESUS, AND YOU BECAME MINE.
    AND I WASHED YOU IN WATER, AND WASHED YOUR BLOOD FROM YOU, AND ANOINTED YOU WITH OIL.
    AND I CLOTHED YOU WITH EMBROIDERED GARMENTS, AND CLOTHED YOU BENEATH WITH PURPLE, AND GIRDED YOU WITH FINE LINEN, AND CLOTHED YOU WITH SILK,
    AND ADORNED YOU ALSO WITH ORNAMENTS, AND PUT BRACELETS ON YOUR HANDS, AND A NECKLACE ON YOUR NECK.
    AND I PUT A PENDANT ON YOUR NOSTRIL, AND RINGS IN YOUR EARS, AND A CROWN OF GLORY ON YOUR HEAD.
    SO YOU WERE ADORNED WITH GOLD AND SILVER; AND YOUR RAIMENT WAS OF FINE LINEN, AND SILK, AND EMBROIDERED WORK: YOU DID EAT FINE FLOUR, AND OIL, AND HONEY, AND DID BECOME EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL.
    AND YOUR NAME WENT FORTH AMONG THE NATIONS FOR YOUR BEAUTY: BECAUSE IT WAS PERFECTED WITH ELEGANCE, AND IN THE COMELINESS WHICH I PUT UPON YOU,’” SAITH JESUS.

Hosea 11:1-12      EARLY IN THE MORNING WERE THEY CAST OFF, THE KING OF JESRAEL HAS BEEN CAST OFF: FOR JESRAEL IS A CHILD, AND I LOVED HIM, AND OUT OF EGYPT HAVE I CALLED HIS CHILDREN.
    AS I CALLED THEM, SO THEY DEPARTED FROM MY PRESENCE: THEY SACRIFICED TO BAALIM, AND BURNT INCENSE TO GRAVEN IMAGES.
    YET I BOUND THE FEET OF EPHRAIM, I TOOK HIM ON MY ARM; BUT THEY DID NOT KNOW THAT I HEALED THEM.
    WHEN MEN WERE DESTROYED, I DREW THEM WITH THE BANDS OF MY LOVE: AND I WILL BE TO THEM AS A MAN STRIKING ANOTHER ON HIS CHEEK: AND I WILL HAVE RESPECT TO HIM, I WILL PREVAIL WITH HIM.
    EPHRAIM DWELT IN EGYPT; AND AS FOR THE ASSYRIAN, HE WAS HIS KING, BECAUSE HE WOULD NOT RETURN.
    AND IN HIS CITIES HE PREVAILED NOT WITH THE SWORD, AND HE CEASED TO WAR WITH HIS HANDS: AND THEY SHALL EAT OF THE FRUIT OF THEIR OWN PRACTICES:
    AND HIS PEOPLE SHALL CLEAVE FONDLY TO THEIR HABITATION; BUT THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) SHALL BE ANGRY WITH HIS PRECIOUS THINGS, AND SHALL NOT AT ALL EXALT HIM.
    HOW SHALL I DEAL WITH YOU, EPHRAIM? HOW SHALL I PROTECT YOU, JESRAEL? WHAT SHALL I DO WITH YOU? I WILL MAKE YOU AS ADAMA, AND AS SEBOIM; MY HEART IS TURNED AT ONCE, MY REPENTANCE IS POWERFULLY EXCITED.
    I WILL NOT ACT ACCORDING TO THE FURY OF MY WRATH, I WILL NOT ABANDON EPHRAIM TO BE UTTERLY DESTROYED: FOR I AM THEOS, AND NOT MAN; THE HOLY ONE WITHIN YOU: AND I WILL NOT ENTER INTO THE CITY.”
    I WILL GO AFTER JESUS: HE SHALL UTTER HIS VOICE AS A LION: FOR HE SHALL ROAR, AND THE CHILDREN OF THE WATERS SHALL BE AMAZED.
    “THEY SHALL BE AMAZED AND FLY AS A BIRD OUT OF EGYPT, AND AS A DOVE OUT OF THE LAND OF THE ASSYRIANS: AND I WILL RESTORE THEM TO THEIR HOUSES,” SAITH JESUS.
    “EPHRAIM HAS COMPASSED ME WITH FALSEHOOD, AND THE HOUSE OF JESRAEL AND JUDAH WITH UNGODLINESS: BUT NOW THEOS KNOWS THEM, AND THEY SHALL BE CALLED THEOS' HOLY PEOPLE.

Matthew 25:1      "THEN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN WILL BE COMPARABLE TO TEN VIRGINS, WHO TOOK THEIR LAMPS AND WENT OUT TO MEET THE BRIDEGROOM.

Luke 5:1-11      NOW IT HAPPENED THAT WHILE THE CROWD WAS PRESSING AROUND HIM AND LISTENING TO THE WORD OF THEOS (The Alpha & Omega), HE WAS STANDING BY THE LAKE OF GENNESARET;
    AND HE SAW TWO BOATS LYING AT THE EDGE OF THE LAKE; BUT THE FISHERMEN HAD GOTTEN OUT OF THEM AND WERE WASHING THEIR NETS.
    AND HE GOT INTO ONE OF THE BOATS, WHICH WAS SIMON'S, AND ASKED HIM TO PUT OUT A LITTLE WAY FROM THE LAND. AND HE SAT DOWN AND TAUGHT THE PEOPLE FROM THE BOAT.
    WHEN HE HAD FINISHED SPEAKING, HE SAID TO SIMON, "PUT OUT INTO THE DEEP WATER AND LET DOWN YOUR NETS FOR A CATCH."
    SIMON ANSWERED AND SAID, "MASTER, WE WORKED HARD ALL NIGHT AND CAUGHT NOTHING, BUT I WILL DO AS YOU SAY and LET DOWN THE NETS."
    WHEN THEY HAD DONE THIS, THEY ENCLOSED A GREAT QUANTITY OF FISH, AND THEIR NETS BEGAN TO BREAK;
    SO THEY SIGNALED TO THEIR PARTNERS IN THE OTHER BOAT FOR THEM TO COME AND HELP THEM. AND THEY CAME AND FILLED BOTH OF THE BOATS, SO THAT THEY BEGAN TO SINK.
    BUT WHEN SIMON PETER SAW THAT, HE FELL DOWN AT JESUS' FEET, SAYING, "GO AWAY FROM ME MASTER, FOR I AM A SINFUL MAN!"
    FOR AMAZEMENT HAD SEIZED HIM AND ALL HIS COMPANIONS BECAUSE OF THE CATCH OF FISH WHICH THEY HAD TAKEN;
    AND SO ALSO WERE JAMES AND JOHN, SONS OF ZEBEDEE, WHO WERE PARTNERS WITH SIMON. AND JESUS SAID TO SIMON, "DO NOT FEAR, FROM NOW ON YOU WILL BE CATCHING HUMANS!"
    WHEN THEY HAD BROUGHT THEIR BOATS TO LAND, THEY LEFT EVERYTHING AND FOLLOWED HIM.

Luke 5:27-28      AFTER THAT HE WENT OUT AND NOTICED A TAX COLLECTOR NAMED LEVI (Matthew) SITTING IN THE TAX BOOTH, AND HE SAID TO HIM, "FOLLOW ME."
    AND HE LEFT EVERYTHING BEHIND, AND GOT UP AND FOLLOWED HIM.

Luke 5:31-32      AND JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID TO THEM, "It is NOT THOSE WHO ARE WELL WHO NEED A DOCTOR, BUT THOSE WHO ARE SICK.
    "I HAVE NOT COME TO CALL THE RIGHTEOUS BUT SINNERS TO REPENTANCE."

John 21:15-17      SO WHEN THEY HAD FINISHED BREAKFAST, JESUS SAID TO SIMON PETER, "SIMON, son OF JOHN, DO YOU AGAPAO/LOVE ME MORE THAN THESE?" HE SAID TO HIM, "YES, MASTER; YOU KNOW THAT I BROTHERLY LOVE YOU." HE SAID TO HIM, "BOSKO MY LAMBS."
    HE SAID TO HIM AGAIN A SECOND TIME, "SIMON, son OF JOHN, DO YOU AGAPAO/LOVE ME?" HE SAID TO HIM, "YES, MASTER; YOU KNOW THAT I BROTHERLY LOVE YOU." HE SAID TO HIM, "POIMAINO MY SHEEP."
    HE SAID TO HIM THE THIRD TIME, "SIMON, son OF JOHN, DO YOU BROTHERLY LOVE ME?" PETER WAS GRIEVED BECAUSE HE SAID TO HIM THE THIRD TIME, "DO YOU LOVE ME?" AND HE SAID TO HIM, "MASTER, YOU KNOW ALL THINGS; YOU KNOW THAT I BROTHERLY LOVE YOU." JESUS SAID TO HIM, "BOSKO MY SHEEP."

Romans 5:6-8      FOR WHILE WE WERE STILL HELPLESS, AT THE RIGHT TIME CHRIST DIED FOR THE UNGODLY.
    FOR ONE WILL HARDLY DIE FOR A RIGHTEOUS MAN; THOUGH PERHAPS FOR THE GOOD MAN SOMEONE WOULD DARE EVEN TO DIE.
    BUT THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) DEMONSTRATES HIS OWN LOVE TOWARD US, IN THAT WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR US.

1 Corinthians 13:2      IF I HAVE PROPHECY, AND KNOW ALL MYSTERIES AND ALL KNOWLEDGE; AND IF I HAVE ALL FAITH, SO AS TO REMOVE MOUNTAINS, BUT DO NOT HAVE LOVE, I AM NOTHING.

Revelation 19:7-8      "LET US REJOICE AND BE GLAD AND GIVE THE GLORY TO HIM, FOR THE WEDDING OF THE LAMB HAS COME AND HIS BRIDE HAS MADE HERSELF READY."
    IT WAS GIVEN TO HER TO CLOTHE HERSELF IN FINE LINEN, BRIGHT, CLEAN; FOR THE FINE LINEN IS THE SAINTS' RIGHTEOUSNESS/HOLINESS ACCORDING TO THE LAW.

Revelation 22:17      THE BREATH AND THE BRIDE SAY, "COME." AND LET THE ONE WHO HEARS SAY, "COME." AND LET THE ONE WHO IS THIRSTY COME; LET THE ONE WHO WANTS TAKE THE WATER OF LIFE WITHOUT COST.
