Proverbs 8:15

By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.
Read Chapter 8


AD 735
Those whom it calls “kings” are the apostles and other saints, like the lawmakers and authors of both Testaments and the subsequent writers of the church. They have learned first how to rule themselves, and then the church that was put under their care. Those whom it calls “rulers” are governors and other powerful leaders of the faithful. But none of these would have anything were it not through wisdom, for he says, “Without me, you can do nothing.” –.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Things. Power and knowledge are the gift of the Almighty, Romans xii. 1. A prince who resembles God the most, is his best present. (Pliny in Trajan)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
