Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Fear the Lord, my child, as well as the king, and do not associate with rebels,
Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except by God's appointment, and the authorities that exist have been instituted by God.
Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work.
1 Peter 2:13
Be subject to every human institution for the Lord's sake, whether to a king as supreme
1 Kings 2:43
Why then have you broken the oath you made before the Lord and disobeyed the order I gave you?"
1 Chronicles 29:24
All the officers and warriors, as well as all of King David's sons, pledged their allegiance to King Solomon.
He took one from the royal family, made a treaty with him, and put him under oath. He then took the leaders of the land
Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of the wrath of the authorities but also because of your conscience.
