“Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as
supreme; or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for
the praise of them that do well.
For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence
the ignorance of foolish men” (1Peter 2:13-15).
“Whoso keepeth the commandment [the king’s] shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man’s heart
discerneth both time and judgment” (Ecclesiastes 8:5).
