But Jesus, calling unto them, said unto them, Ye know that those who are seen to be princes among the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those that are great among them wield power over them.
Then he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those that exercise authority upon them are called well-doers.

For to this end Christ both died and rose and revived: to thus exercise lordship over the dead as well as over the living.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is any praise, exercise yourselves in these things.
But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.
