#1.2 Scriptures for הֲוָה and הֲוָא 'havah' meaning 'to be' Strong's 1934

Ezra 4:12 Be it known to the king, that the Jews which came up from you to us are come to Jerusalem, building the rebellious and the bad city, and have set up its walls, and joined the foundations.
4:13 Be it known now to the king, that, if this city be built, and the walls set up again, then will they not pay toll, tribute, and custom, and so you shall endamage the revenue of the kings.
4:20 There have been mighty kings also over Jerusalem, who have ruled over all countries beyond the river; and toll, tribute, and custom, was paid to them.
4:22 Take heed * now that you do not fail to do this: why should damage grow to the hurt of the kings?
4:24 Then ceased the work of the house of God which is at Jerusalem. So it ceased * until the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia.
5:5 But the eye of their God was upon the elders of the Jews, that they could not cause them to cease, until the matter came to Darius: and then they returned answer by letter concerning this matter.
5:8 Be it known to the king, that we went into the province of Judea, to the house of the great God, which is built with great stones, and timber is laid in the walls, and this work goes fast on, and prospers in their hands.
5:11 And thus they returned us answer, saying, We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and build the house that was built these many years ago, which a great king of Israel built and set up.
6:6 Now therefore, Tatnai, governor beyond the river, Shetharboznai, and your companions the Apharsachites, who are beyond the river, be you far from there:
6:8 Furthermore I make a decree what you shall do to the elders of these Jews for the building of this house of God: that of the king's goods, even of the tribute beyond the river, forthwith expenses be given to these men, that they are not hindered.
6:9 And that which they have need of, both young bullocks, and rams, and lambs, for the burnt offerings of the God of heaven, wheat, salt, wine, and oil, according to the appointment of the priests which are at Jerusalem, let it be given them day by day without fail:
6:10 That they may offer * sacrifices of sweet savours to the God of heaven, and pray for the life of the king, and of his sons.
7:23 Whatever is commanded by the God of heaven, let it be diligently done for the house of the God of heaven: for why should there be wrath against the realm of the king and his sons?
7:25 And you, Ezra, after the wisdom of your God, that is in your hand, set magistrates and judges, who may judge * all the people who are beyond the river, all such as know the laws of your God; and you teach those who do not know them.
7:26 And whoever will not do * the law of your God, and the law of the king, let judgment be executed speedily upon him, whether it is to death, or to banishment, or to confiscation of goods, or to imprisonment.

Daniel 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:
2:28 But there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and makes known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Your dream, and the visions of your head upon your bed, are these;
2:29 As for you, O king, your thoughts came into your mind upon your bed, what should come to pass after this: and he who reveals secrets makes known to you what shall come to pass.
2:31 You, O king, saw *, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before you; and the form of it was terrible.
2:34 You saw * until that a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and broke them to pieces.
2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that struck the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
2:40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things: and as iron that breaks all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
2:41 And whereas you saw the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with miry clay.
2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and shall be partly fragile.
2:43 And whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves * with the seed of men: but they shall not stick to one another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
2:45 Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God has made known to the king what shall come to pass after this: and the dream is certain, and its interpretation sure.
3:18 But if not, be it known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods, nor worship the golden image which you have set up.
4:4 I Nebuchadnezzar was at rest in my house, and flourishing in my palace:
4:10 Thus were the visions of my head in my bed; I looked *, and behold a tree in the midst of the earth, and its height was great.
4:13 I saw * in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher and a holy one came down from heaven;
4:25 That they shall drive you from men, and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make you to eat grass as oxen, and they shall wet you with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over you, until you know that the most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever he will.
4:27 Therefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable to you, and break off your sins by righteousness, and your iniquities by showing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of your ease.
4:29 At the end of twelve months he was walking in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon.
Daniel 4:30 The king spoke, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?
5:17 Then Daniel answered and said before the king, Let your gifts be to yourself, and give your rewards to another; yet I will read the writing to the king, and make known to him the interpretation.
5:19 And for the majesty that he gave him, all people, nations, and languages, were trembling and fearing before him: whom he would * he slew *; and whom he would * he kept * alive; and whom he would * he set * up; and whom he would * he put * down.
5:29 Then Belshazzar commanded, and they clothed Daniel with scarlet, and put a chain of gold about his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him, that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom.
6:1 It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom a hundred and twenty princes, who should be over the whole kingdom;
6:2 And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give * accounts to them, and the king should have no damage.
6:3 Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.
6:4 Then the presidents and princes sought * to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find no occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.
6:10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did * before.
6:14 Then the king, when he heard these words, was very displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him: and he laboured * until the going down of the sun to deliver him.
6:26 I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble * and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even to the end.
6:27 He delivers and rescues, and he works signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.
6:28 So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
7:2 Daniel spoke and said, I saw * in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.
7:4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I looked * until its wings were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it.
7:6 After this I looked *, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a bird; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.
7:7 After this I saw * in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was different from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
7:8 considered * the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
7:9 I looked * until the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days sat, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.
7:11 I looked * because of the voice of the great words which the horn spoke: I looked * even until the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.
7:13 I saw * in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came * with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
7:19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;
7:21 I looked *, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;
7:23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be different from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
