The prison
Acts 5:19
But an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail during the night, brought them out, and said,
Psalm 2:4
The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord ridicules them.
Psalm 33:10
The LORD frustrates the counsel of the nations; He thwarts the plans of the peoples.
Proverbs 21:30
No wisdom, no understanding, and no counsel [will prevail] against the LORD.
Lamentations 3:37
Who is there who speaks and it happens, unless the Lord has ordained [it]?
Lamentations 3:55-58
55
I called on Your name, Yahweh, from the depths of the Pit.
56
You hear my plea: Do not ignore my cry for relief.
57
You come near when I call on You; You say: "Do not be afraid."
58
You defend my cause, Lord; You redeem my life.
Daniel 3:11-25
11
Whoever does not fall down and worship will be thrown into a furnace of blazing fire.
12
There are some Jews you have appointed to manage the province of Babylon: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. These men have ignored you, the king; they do not serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up."
13
Then in a furious rage Nebuchadnezzar gave orders to bring in Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. So these men were brought before the king.
14
Nebuchadnezzar asked them, "Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, is it true that you don't serve my gods or worship the gold statue I have set up?
15
Now if you're ready, when you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, drum, and every kind of music, fall down and worship the statue I made. But if you don't worship it, you will immediately be thrown into a furnace of blazing fire-- and who is the god who can rescue you from my power?"
16
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied to the king, "Nebuchadnezzar, we don't need to give you an answer to this question.
17
If the God we serve exists, then He can rescue us from the furnace of blazing fire, and He can rescue us from the power of you, the king.
18
But even if He does not rescue us, we want you as king to know that we will not serve your gods or worship the gold statue you set up."
19
Then Nebuchadnezzar was filled with rage, and the expression on his face changed toward Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. He gave orders to heat the furnace seven times more than was customary,
20
and he commanded some of the strongest soldiers in his army to tie up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and throw them into the furnace of blazing fire.
21
So these men, in their trousers, robes, head coverings, and other clothes, were tied up and thrown into the furnace of blazing fire.
22
Since the king's command was so urgent and the furnace extremely hot, the raging flames killed those men who carried Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego up.
23
And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego fell, bound, into the furnace of blazing fire.
24
Then King Nebuchadnezzar jumped up in alarm. He said to his advisers, "Didn't we throw three men, bound, into the fire?" "Yes, of course, Your Majesty," they replied to the king.
25
He exclaimed, "Look! I see four men, not tied, walking around in the fire unharmed; and the fourth looks like a son of the gods."
Daniel 6:22-24
22
My God sent His angel and shut the lions' mouths. They haven't hurt me, for I was found innocent before Him. Also, I have not committed a crime against you my king."
23
The king was overjoyed and gave orders to take Daniel out of the den. So Daniel was taken out of the den, uninjured, for he trusted in his God.
24
The king then gave the command, and those men who had maliciously accused Daniel were brought and thrown into the lions' den-- they, their children, and their wives. They had not reached the bottom of the den before the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones.
Matthew 27:63-66
63
and said, "Sir, we remember that while this deceiver was still alive, He said, 'After three days I will rise again.'
64
Therefore give orders that the tomb be made secure until the third day. Otherwise, His disciples may come, steal Him, and tell the people, 'He has been raised from the dead.' Then the last deception will be worse than the first."
65
"You have a guard [of soldiers]," Pilate told them. "Go and make it as secure as you know how."
66
Then they went and made the tomb secure by sealing the stone and setting the guard.
Matthew 28:12-15
12
After the priests had assembled with the elders and agreed on a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money
13
and told them, "Say this, 'His disciples came during the night and stole Him while we were sleeping.'
14
If this reaches the governor's ears, we will deal with him and keep you out of trouble."
15
So they took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been spread among Jewish people to this day.
John 8:59
At that, they picked up stones to throw at Him. But Jesus was hidden and went out of the temple complex.
