12: 47If anyone hears (akouō) my words and does not keep them, I do not judge him, because I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.
14: 24He who does not love me does not keep my words; and the word which you hear (akouō) is not mine, but the Father's who sent me.
14: 28You have heard (akouō) that I said to you: I am going away and I will come back to you. If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I am.
15: 15I no longer call you servants, because the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I call you friends, because everything I have heard (akouō) from my Father I have made known to you.
16: 13But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will bring you into all truth; for he will not speak of himself, but what he hears (akouō), he will tell you, and he will show you the things to come.
18: 21Why do you question me? Ask those who have heard (akouō) what I have taught them; they know what I have said."
18: 37Pilate said to him, "So you are a king?" Jesus answered, "You say, 'I am a king. I was not born, and I have not come into the world, except to bear witness to the truth. Whoever is of the truth hears (akouō) my voice."
19: 8When Pilate heard (akouō) this word, he was even more afraid.
19: 13When Pilate heard (akouō) these words, he brought Jesus outside and made him sit in the judgment seat, in a place called the Pavement, in Hebrew Gabbatha.

2: 6At the noise that occurred, the multitude gathered together and were confounded: everyone heard (akouō) them speaking in their own language.
2: 8How is it then that each one of us hears (akouō) them in his own mother's language?
2: 11Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs alike, we hear (akouō) them publishing in our own language the wonders of God!"
2: 22"Men of Israel, listen (akouō) to these words. Jesus the Nazarene, the man whom God has accredited to you by the miracles, wonders and signs which He performed among you through him, as you yourselves know,
2: 33And now, exalted by the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the Holy Spirit, the object of the promise, and has poured it out. This is what you see and hear (akouō).
2: 37When they heard (akouō) this, their hearts were pierced, and they said to Peter and the apostles, "Brothers, what must we do?" They said, "We are going to do what we have to do.
3: 22First Moses said, "The Lord God will raise up a prophet like me from among your brethren, and you shall listen (akouō) to him in everything he tells you.
3: 23Whoever does not listen (akouō) to this prophet will be cut off from the people.
4: 4However, many of those who heard (akouō) the word embraced the faith, and the number of the faithful, counting only men, was about 5,000.
4: 19But Peter and John replied, "If it is right in the eyes of God to listen (akouō) to you rather than God, you are the judge of that.
4: 20As for us, we cannot fail to publish what we have seen and heard (akouō)".
4: 24When they heard (akouō), they raised their voices to God with one accord and said, "Teacher, you made heaven, earth, sea, and all that is in them;
5: 5On hearing (akouō) these words, Ananias fell down and died. Great fear came upon all those who heard (akouō) about it.
5: 11Then great fear came upon the whole church and upon all who heard (akouō) these things.
5: 21When they heard (akouō), they entered the Temple at daybreak and began to teach. However, the high priest arrived with those around him. The Sanhedrin and the entire Senate of the Israelites were summoned and the apostles were taken from the prison.
5: 24As they heard (akouō) these words, the commander of the Temple and the high priests were puzzled by them and wondered what they meant.
5: 33On hearing (akouō) this, they trembled with rage and planned to kill them.
6: 11They then bribed men to say, "We heard (akouō) him speak blasphemous words against Moses and God".
6: 14We have heard (akouō) him say that Jesus, that Nazarene, will destroy this Place and change the customs that Moses bequeathed to us.
7: 2He answered: "Brothers and fathers, listen (akouō). The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham, still in Mesopotamia before he settled in Haran,
7: 12Hearing (akouō) that there was food in Egypt, Jacob sent our fathers there for the first time;
7: 34Yes, I saw the affliction of my people in Egypt, I heard (akouō) their groaning and I came down to deliver them. Come, then, that I may send you into Egypt.
7: 54When they heard (akouō) these things, their hearts trembled with rage, and they gnashed their teeth at Stephen.

9: 13Ananias replied: "Lord, I have heard (akouō) many people talking about this man and all the evil he has done to your saints in Jerusalem.
9: 21All those who heard (akouō) him were amazed and said, "Is this not the man who in Jerusalem was blaming those who call on this name, and did he not come here deliberately to bring them in chains to the high priests?".
9: 38Since Lydda is not far from Joppa, the disciples, hearing (akouō) that Peter was there, sent two men to Lydda and prayed to him: "Come to us without delay".
10: 22They replied: "The centurion Cornelius, a just and God-fearing man, to whom the whole Jewish nation bears good witness, has received from a holy angel the advice to bring you to him and to hear (akouō) the words you have to say.
10: 33So I sent for you immediately, and you did well to come. Here we are all before you to hear (akouō) what God has commanded you."
10: 44Peter was still speaking when the Holy Spirit fell on all those who were listening (akouō).
10: 46They heard (akouō) them speaking in tongues and magnifying God. Then Peter declared:
11: 1But the apostles and the brethren of Judea heard (akouō) that the Gentiles, too, had received the word of God.
11: 7Then I heard (akouō) a voice saying to me, "Come, Peter, kill and eat.
11: 18When they heard (akouō) these things, they were appeased, and they glorified God, saying, "So then to the Gentiles also God has given repentance, which leads to life".

13: 7who was in the entourage of the wise proconsul Sergius Paulus. The latter had Barnabas and Saul called, eager to hear (akouō) the word of God.
13: 16Paul then stood up, waved his hand and said, "Men of Israel, and you who fear God, listen (akouō).
13: 44On the following Sabbath almost the whole city gathered together to hear (akouō) the word of God.
13: 48Hearing (akouō) (this), the Gentiles rejoiced and began to glorify the word of the Lord, and all of them embraced the faith, which was destined for eternal life.
14: 9He listened (akouō) to Paul's discourse. He looked at him and saw that he had the faith to be healed,
14: 14Having heard (akouō) (this), the apostles Barnabas and Paul tore their clothes and rushed towards the crowd shouting:
15: 7After a long discussion, Peter stood up and said, "Brothers, you know that from the first days God chose me among you so that the Gentiles might hear (akouō) the word of the Good News from my mouth and embrace the faith.
15: 12Then all the congregation fell silent. They listened (akouō) as Barnabas and Paul explained all the signs and wonders God had done among the Gentiles through them.
15: 13When they had ceased speaking, James answered and said, "Brothers, listen (akouō) to me.
15: 24Having heard (akouō) that, without a mandate from us, certain people who came from our country have, by their words, troubled you and upset your minds,
16: 14One of them, named Lydia, was listening (akouō) to us; she was a purple merchant from the city of Thyatira; she worshipped God. The Lord opened her heart so that she clung to Paul's words.
16: 38The lictors reported these words to the strategists. Frightened when they heard (akouō) that they were Roman citizens,
17: 8Hearing (akouō) these things, they stirred up the crowd and the politicians,
17: 21All Athenians indeed and the foreigners who lived among them had no other hobby than to say or listen (akouō) to the latest news.
17: 32Hearing (akouō) talk about the resurrection of the dead, some laughed, others said: "We will hear (akouō) you about that another time."
18: 8Crispus, the head of the synagogue, believed in the Lord with all his people. Many of the Corinthians who heard (akouō) Paul also embraced the faith and were baptized.
18: 26So he began to speak confidently in the synagogue. Priscilla and Aquila, who had heard (akouō) him, took him with them and explained the Way to him more precisely.
19: 2and said to them, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you embraced the faith?" They said, "But we haven't even heard (akouō) that there is a Holy Spirit."
19: 5When they heard (akouō) (these words), they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus;
19: 10So it was for two years, so that all the people of Asia, Jews and Greeks alike, could hear (akouō) the word of the Lord.
19: 26Now, you see and hear (akouō) him say, not only in Ephesus, but in almost all Asia, this Paul, by his reasons, drew a considerable crowd after him, claiming that they are not gods, those who came out of the hands of men.
19: 28When they heard (akouō) (these words), filled with anger, they began to cry out: "Great is the Artemis of the Ephesians!".
21: 12When we had heard (akouō) these things, we and the local people begged Paul not to go up to Jerusalem.
21: 20And they glorified God with what they heard (akouō). Then they said to him, "You see, brother, how many thousands of Jews have embraced the faith, and they are all zealous followers of the Law.
21: 22So what can we do? Surely the multitude will not fail to gather, for they will hear (akouō) about your arrival.
22: 1"Brothers and fathers, listen (akouō) to what I now have to say in my defense."
22: 2When they heard (akouō) that he spoke to them in Hebrew, their silence grew deeper. He continued:
22: 7I fell to the ground and heard (akouō) a voice saying to me: Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?
22: 9Those who were with me saw the light, but they did not hear (akouō) the voice of the one speaking to me.
22: 14Then he said: The God of our fathers has predestined you to know his will, to see the Righteous One and to hear (akouō) the voice that came out of his mouth;
22: 15for to him you must be a witness before all men of what you have seen and heard (akouō).
22: 22Until then he was listened to (akouō). But at these words they began to cry out: "Take such a man from the earth! He is not worthy to live."
22: 26Having heard (akouō) (these words), the centurion went to the tribune to warn him: "What are you going to do? This man is a Roman citizen."
23: 16But Paul's sister's son, hearing (akouō) about the ambush, went to the fortress, entered and warned Paul.
24: 4But so as not to bother you any further, I beg you to listen (akouō) for a moment with the kindness that characterizes you.
24: 24A few days later, Felix came with his wife Drusille, who was Jewish. He sent for Paul and listened (akouō) to him talk about faith in Jesus Christ.
25: 22Agrippa said to Festus: "I too would like to hear (akouō) this man" - "Tomorrow," he said, "you will hear (akouō) him ".
26: 3Especially since you are aware of all the customs and controversies of the Jews. Therefore, I beg you to listen (akouō) to me with patience.
26: 14We all fell to the ground, and I heard (akouō) a voice saying to me in Hebrew: Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It is hard for you to regimber against the sting.
26: 29And Paul: "Whether it be a little or a lot, may God grant that not only you, but all those who are listening (akouō) to me today, may you become as I am myself, except for these chains".
28: 15The brothers of this city, having heard (akouō) about our arrival, came to meet us at the Forum of Appius and the Three Taverns. When Paul saw them, he gave thanks to God and took courage.
28: 22But we would like to hear (akouō) from you what you think; for as for this party, we know that it is contradictory everywhere".
28: 26Go to this people and tell them: "No matter how much you listen (akouō), you will not understand; no matter how much you look, you will not see.
28: 27This is because the spirit of this people has thickened, and with their ears they hear (akouō) hardly, and they have closed their eyes, lest their eyes see, lest their ears hear (akouō), lest their spirit understand, lest they be converted. And I would have healed them!
28: 28"Know therefore that this salvation of God was sent to the Gentiles. At least they will listen (akouō)."

1 John

1, 1What was from the beginning, what we have heard (akouō), what we have seen with our eyes, what we have contemplated, what our hands have touched from the Word of life; -
1, 3what we have seen and heard (akouō), we proclaim to you, so that you too may be in communion with us. As for our communion, it is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.
1, 5And this is the message we have heard (akouō) from him and proclaim to you: God is Light, in him there is no darkness.
2, 7Beloved, this is not a new commandment that I am writing to you, but an old commandment, which you have received from the beginning. This old commandment is the word you have heard (akouō).
2, 18Little children, the last hour has come. You have heard (akouō) that the Antichrist is to come; and already now many antichrists have come: at which we recognize that the last hour has come.
2, 24For you, may what you have heard (akouō) from the beginning remain in you. If what you have heard (akouō) from the beginning remains in you, you too will remain in the Son and in the Father.
3, 11For this is the message that you have heard (akouō) from the beginning: we must love one another,
4, 3and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not of God; this is the spirit of the Antichrist. You have heard (akouō) that he is coming; well, now he is already in the world.
4, 5They are of the world; that is why they speak according to the world and the world listens (akouō) to them.
4, 6We are from God. Whoever knows God listens (akouō) to us, whoever is not of God does not listen (akouō) to us. This is what we recognize as the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
5, 14We have in God the assurance that if we ask for something according to his will, he listens (akouō) to us.
5, 15And if we know that he listens (akouō) to us in everything we ask, we know that we have what we have asked him for.

2 John

1, 6Love consists in living according to its commandments. And the first commandment, as you have heard (akouō) from the beginning, is that you live in love.

3 John

1, 4To hear (akouō) say that my children are living in truth, nothing gives me greater joy.
