Give ear, ye that rule the people, and glory in the multitude of nations.
 For power is given you of the Lord, and sovereignty from the Highest, who shall try your works, and search out your counsels.
 Because, being ministers of his kingdom, ye have not judged aright, nor kept the law, nor walked after the counsel of God;
 Horribly and speedily shall he come upon you: for a sharp judgment shall be to them that be in high places.
 For mercy will soon pardon the meanest: but mighty men shall be mightily tormented.
 For he which is Lord over all shall fear no man’s person, neither shall he stand in awe of any man’s greatness: for he hath made the small and great, and careth for all alike.
 But a sore trial shall come upon the mighty.
 Unto you therefore, O kings, do I speak, that ye may learn wisdom, and not fall away.
 For they that keep holiness holily shall be judged holy: and they that have learned such things shall find what to answer.
 Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;
 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
1 Timothy 2:1-7
 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
 Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum.
 And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die.
 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.
 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:
 For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.
 Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof:
 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.
 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
 When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
 And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.
