Obedience to Rulers

1 Who is as the Wise man? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? a mans wisedome maketh his face to shine, and the boldnes of his face shalbe changed.

2 I counsell thee, to keepe the kings commandement, and that in regard of the oath of God.

3 Bee not hastie to goe out of his sight: stand not in an euill thing, for he doeth whatsoeuer pleaseth him.

4 Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say vnto him, What doest thou?

5 Whoso keepeth the commandement, shall feele no euill thing: and a wise mans heart discerneth both time and iudgement.

6 ΒΆ Because to euery purpose there is time, and iudgement; therefore the misery of man is great vpon him.

7 For hee knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him, when it shall be?

8 There is no man that hath power ouer the spirit to retaine the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that warre, neither shall wickednesse deliuer those that are giuen to it.

9 All this haue I seene, and applied my heart vnto euery worke that is done vnder the Sunne: there is a time wherein one man ruleth ouer another to his owne hurt.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
