11 Bible Verses about Fasting

“Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?”أَلَيْسَ الصَّوْمُ الَّذِي أَخْتَارُهُ يَكُونُ فِي فَكِّ قُيُودِ الشَّرِّ، وَحَلِّ عُقَدِ النِّيرِ، وَإِطْلاقِ سَرَاحِ الْمُتَضَايِقِينَ، وَتَحْطِيمِ كُلِّ نِيرٍ؟
So we fasted and implored our God for this, and he listened to our entreaty.وَبَعْدَ أَنْ صُمْنَا وَابْتَهَلْنَا إِلَى إِلَهِنَا اسْتَجَابَ لَنَا.
But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.أَمَّا أَنْتَ، فَعِنْدَمَا تَصُمْ، فَاغْسِلْ وَجْهَكَ، وَعَطِّرْ رَأْسَكَ، لِكَيْ لَا تَظْهَرَ لِلنَّاسِ صَائِماً، بَلْ لأَبِيكَ الَّذِي فِي الْخَفَاءِ. وَأَبُوكَ الَّذِي يَرَى فِي الْخَفَاءِ، هُوَ يُكَافِئُكَ.
“Yet even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.”وَالآنَ، يَقُولُ الرَّبُّ: ارْجِعُوا إِلَيَّ مِنْ كُلِّ قُلُوبِكُمْ بِصَوْمٍ وَبُكَاءٍ وَنَوْحٍ.
And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.وَعِنْدَمَا تَصُومُونَ، لَا تَكُونُوا عَابِسِي الْوُجُوهِ، الْمُنَافِقُونَ الَّذِينَ يُغَيِّرُونَ وُجُوهَهُمْ لِكَيْ يَظْهَرُوا لِلنَّاسِ صَائِمِينَ. الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ إِنَّهُمْ قَدْ نَالُوا مُكَافَأَتَهُمْ.
I ate no delicacies, no meat or wine entered my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, for the full three weeks.لَمْ آكُلْ فِيهَا طَعَاماً شَهِيًّا، وَلَمْ يَدْخُلْ فَمِي لَحْمٌ أَوْ خَمْرٌ، وَلَمْ أَتَطَيَّبْ بِدُهْنٍ.
Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off.فَبَعْدَمَا صَامُوا وَصَلُّوا وَوَضَعُوا عَلَيْهِمَا أَيْدِيَهُمْ أَطْلَقُوهُمَا.
For forty days, being tempted by the devil. And he ate nothing during those days. And when they were ended, he was hungry.أَرْبَعِينَ يَوْماً، وَإِبْلِيسُ يُجَرِّبُهُ، وَلَمْ يَأْكُلْ شَيْئاً طَوَالَ تِلْكَ الأَيَّامِ. فَلَمَّا تَمَّتْ، جَاعَ.
While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”وَذَاتَ يَوْمٍ، وَهُمْ صَائِمُونَ يَتَعَبَّدُونَ لِلرَّبِّ، قَالَ لَهُمُ الرُّوحُ الْقُدُسُ: «خَصِّصُوا لِي بَرْنَابَا وَشَاوُلَ لأَجْلِ الْعَمَلِ الَّذِي دَعَوْتُهُمَا إِلَيْهِ».
So he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights. He neither ate bread nor drank water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments.وَمَكَثَ مُوسَى فِي حَضْرَةِ الرَّبِّ أَرْبَعِينَ يَوْماً وَأَرْبَعِينَ لَيْلَةً، لَمْ يَأْكُلْ فِيهَا خُبْزاً، وَلَمْ يَشْرَبْ مَاءً. فَدَوَّنَ عَلَى اللَّوْحَينِ كَلِمَاتِ العَهْدِ، أَيِ الْوَصَايَا الْعَشْرَ.
“Go, gather all the Jews to be found in Susa, and hold a fast on my behalf, and do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my young women will also fast as you do. Then I will go to the king, though it is against the law, and if I perish, I perish.”«امْضِ اجْمَعْ كُلَّ الْيَهُودِ الْمُقِيمِينَ فِي شُوشَنَ، وَصُومُوا مِنْ أَجْلِي وَلا تَأْكُلُوا وَلا تَشْرَبُوا ثَلاثَةَ أَيَّامٍ لَيْلاً وَنَهَاراً، وَسَأَصُومُ أَنَا وَوَصِيفَاتِي أَيْضاً مِثْلَكُمْ. ثُمَّ أَدْخُلُ إِلَى الْمَلِكِ مُخَالِفَةً الْعُرْفَ الْمُتَّبَعَ، فَإِذَا هَلَكْتُ، هَلَكْتُ».
