Colossians 3Risen with Christ; 2:12.
Dead; that is, your former life of worldliness and sin was ended by your union with Christ.
Mortify—your members; keep evil propensities under strict subjection.
The old man; the former man.
The word of Christ; the doctrine of Christ.
Provoke not your children, &c.; that is, in all things deal with them gently and tenderly.
Eye-service; pretended fidelity.—Singleness; honesty and faithfulness.
As to the Lord; that is, feeling a direct responsibility to him.

You can mix most searches. This finds any word translated as 'throne' in the Prophets and the New Testament, but only in verses concerning the topic 'David'. This excludes verses which refer to a 'throne' in other contexts.
Interlinear Hebrew & Greek is available for some translations with grammar (and more soon). To reverse the interlinear order, click on a version abbreviation under the verse number.
