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 “Lay Hold”.

Deu 21:19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him,
and bring him out unto the elders of his city,
and unto the gate of his place;

Deu 21:20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city,
This our son is stubborn
and rebellious,
he will not obey our voice;
he is a glutton,
and a drunkard.

Deu 22:28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin,
which is not betrothed,
and lay hold on her,
and lie with her,
and they be found;

Deu 22:29 Then the man that lay with her
shall give unto the damsel’s father
fifty shekels of silver,
and she shall be his wife;
because he hath humbled her,
he may not put her away all his days.

1Ki 13:4 And it came to pass,
when king Jeroboam heard the saying of the man of God,
which had cried against the altar in Bethel,
that he put forth his hand from the altar,
saying, Lay hold on him.
And his hand,
which he put forth against him,
dried up,
so that he could not pull it in again to him.

Pro 3:18 She is a tree of life to them
that lay hold upon her:
and happy is every one that retaineth her.

Ecc 2:3 I sought in mine heart to give myself unto wine,
yet acquainting mine heart with wisdom;
and to lay hold on folly,
till I might see what was that good for the sons of men,
which they should do under the heaven
all the days of their life.

Isa 5:29 Their roaring shall be like a lion,
they shall roar like young lions:
yea, they shall roar,
and lay hold of the prey,
and shall carry it away safe,
and none shall deliver it.

Jer 6:23 They shall lay hold on bow and spear;
they are cruel, and have no mercy;
their voice roareth like the sea;
and they ride upon horses,
set in array as men for war against thee,
O daughter of Zion.

Zec 14:13 And it shall come to pass in that day,
that a great tumult
from the LORD shall be among them;
and they shall lay hold every one
on the hand of his neighbour,
and his hand shall rise up against
the hand of his neighbour.

Mat 12:11 And he said unto them,
What man shall there be among you,
that shall have one sheep,
and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day,
will he not lay hold on it,
and lift it out?

Mar 3:21 And when his friends heard of it,
they went out to lay hold on him:
for they said, He is beside himself.

Mar 12:12 And they sought to lay hold on him,
but feared the people:
for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them:
and they left him, and went their way.

1Ti 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith,
lay hold on eternal life,
whereunto thou art also called,
and hast professed a good profession
before many witnesses.

1Ti 6:19 Laying up in store for themselves
a good foundation against the time to come,
that they may lay hold on eternal life.

Heb 6:18 That by two immutable things,
in which it was impossible for God to lie,
we might have a strong consolation,
who have fled for refuge
to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

Heb 6:19 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul,
both sure and stedfast,
and which entereth into that within the veil;
Heb 6:20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered,
even Jesus, made an high priest
for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
