I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “prison” from  the Old Testament.

Gen 39:22 And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph’s hand
all the prisoners that were in the prison;
and whatsoever they did there,
he was the doer of it.

Gen 39:23 The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing
that was under his hand;
because the LORD was with him,
and that which he did, the LORD made it to prosper.

Jdg 16:21 But the Philistines took him,
and put out his eyes,
and brought him down to Gaza,
and bound him with fetters of brass;
and he did grind in the prison house.

Jdg 16:25 And it came to pass, when their hearts were merry,
that they said, Call for Samson,
that he may make us sport.
And they called for Samson out of the prison house;
and he made them sport: and they set him between the pillars.

2Ki 25:29 And changed his prison garments:
and he did eat bread continually before him all the days of his life.

2Ch 16:10 Then Asa was wroth with the seer,
and put him in a prison house;
for he was in a rage with him because of this thing.
And Asa oppressed some of the people the same time.

Neh 12:39 And from above the gate of Ephraim,
and above the old gate,
and above the fish gate,
and the tower of Hananeel,
and the tower of Meah,
even unto the sheep gate:
and they stood still in the prison gate.

Ecc 4:14 For out of prison he cometh to reign;
whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor.

Isa 42:7 To open the blind eyes,
to bring out the prisoners from the prison,
and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

Isa 42:22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled;
they are all of them snared in holes,
and they are hid in prison houses:
they are for a prey,
and none delivereth;
for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.

Isa 53:8 He was taken from prison and from judgment:
and who shall declare his generation?
for he was cut off out of the land of the living:
for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

Isa 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me;
because the LORD hath anointed me
to preach good tidings unto the meek;
he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

Jer 32:8 So Hanameel mine uncle’s son came to me
in the court of the prison according to the word of the LORD,
and said unto me, Buy my field,
I pray thee, that is in Anathoth,
which is in the country of Benjamin:
for the right of inheritance is thine,
and the redemption is thine;
buy it for thyself.
Then I knew that this was the word of the LORD.

Jer 37:15 Wherefore the princes were wroth with Jeremiah,
and smote him,
and put him in prison in the house of Jonathan the scribe:
for they had made that the prison.

Jer 38:28 So Jeremiah abode in the court of the prison
until the day that Jerusalem was taken:
and he was there when Jerusalem was taken.

Jer 52:11 Then he put out the eyes of Zedekiah;
and the king of Babylon bound him in chains,
and carried him to Babylon,
and put him in prison till the day of his death.

Jer 52:33 And changed his prison garments:
and he did continually eat bread before him
all the days of his life.
