Context Readings

Obedience To The King

4 Where the word of a king is, there is power, - who then may say to him, What wouldst thou do? 5 He that observeth the commandment, will not notice a vexatious thing, - and, of time and manner, will the heart of the wise take note. 6 For, to every pursuit, there is a time and a manner, - when, the vexation of man, is great concerning it.
