Old Testament –

“And it came to pass in the month Nisan, in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes the king, that wine was before him: and I took up the wine, and gave it unto the king. Now I had not been sad in his presence. Wherefore the king said unto me, ‘Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? This is nothing else but sorrow of heart.’ Then I was very sore afraid, and said unto the king, ‘Let the king live for ever: why should not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers’ sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed with fire?’ Then the king said unto me, ‘For what dost thou make request?’ So I prayed to the God of heaven. And I said unto the king, ‘If it please the king, and if thy servant have found favour in thy sight, that thou wouldest send me unto Judah, unto the city of my fathers’ sepulchres, that I may build it.’ And the king said unto me, (the queen also sitting by him,) ‘For how long shall thy journey be, and when wilt thou return?’ So it pleased the king to send me; and I set him a time.”  Nehemiah 2:1-6 (KJV)

New Testament –

“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil. And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”  Romans 16:17-20 (KJV)
