 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.

 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:
 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
1 Timothy 2:1-7

 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.
 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.
 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.
 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:
 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.
 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.
