20-17:12††† Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly.
20-18:19††† A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.

28-2:7††††† And she shall follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them; and she shall seek them, but shall not find them: then shall she say, I will go and return to my first husband; for then was it better with me than now.

32-4:8††††† And it came to pass, when the sun did arise, that God prepared a vehement east wind; and the sun beat upon the head of Jonah, that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said, It is better for me to die than to live.
32-4:11†††† And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?
33-7:4††††† The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen and thy visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity.

35-1:8††††† Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves: and their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat.
35-1:13†††† Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity: wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously, and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?
37-2:9††††† The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.
40-3:11†††† I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
40-5:37†††† But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
40-5:47†††† And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
40-6:25†††† Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
40-6:26†††† Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

40-11:11††† Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
40-11:22††† But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.
40-11:24††† But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.
40-12:6†††† But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.
40-12:12††† How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
40-12:41††† The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
40-12:42††† The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
40-12:45††† Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
40-18:8†††† Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
40-18:9†††† And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
40-18:13††† And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
40-19:24††† And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
40-21:36††† Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
40-23:15††† Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
40-26:53††† Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
40-27:64††† Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
41-1:7††††† And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.
41-4:31†††† It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:
41-4:32†††† But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.
41-6:11†††† And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
41-8:14†††† Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf.
41-9:43†††† And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
41-9:45†††† And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
41-9:47†††† And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
41-10:25††† It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
41-12:31††† And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
41-12:33††† And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
41-12:43††† And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
41-14:5†††† For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her.
42-3:13†††† And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.
42-3:16†††† John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:
42-7:26†††† But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet.
42-7:28†††† For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.

55-3:4††††† Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

58-1:4††††† Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
