4 And they worshipped the dragon which gaue power vnto the beast, and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like vnto the beast! who is able to warre with him! 5 And there was giuen vnto him a mouth, that spake great things and blasphemies, and power was giuen vnto him, to doe two and fourtie moneths. 6 And he opened his mouth vnto blasphemie against God, to blaspheme his Name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heauen. 7 And it was giuen vnto him to make warre with the Saints, and to ouercome them, and power was giuen him ouer euery kinred, and tongue, and nation. 8 Therefore all that dwell vpon the earth, shall worship him, whose names are not written in the booke of life of that Lambe, which was slaine from the beginning of the world. 9 If any man haue an eare, let him heare. 10 If any leade into captiuitie, hee shall go into captiuitie: if any kill with a sword, he must be killed by a sword: here is the patience and the faith of the Saints. 11 And I beheld another beast comming vp out of the earth, which had two hornes like the Lambe, but he spake like the dragon. 12 And he did all that the first beast could doe before him, and he caused the earth, and them which dwell therein, to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 And he did great wonders, so that hee made fire to come downe from heauen on the earth, in the sight of men, 14 And deceiued them that dwell on the earth by the signes, which were permitted to him to doe in the sight of the beast, saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make the image of the beast, which had the wound of a sword, and did liue. 15 And it was permitted to him to giue a spirit vnto the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast should speake, and should cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast, should be killed.

Romans 13:1-5

1 Let euery soule be subiect vnto the higher powers: for there is no power but of God: and the powers that be, are ordeined of God. 2 Whosoeuer therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist, shall receiue to themselues condemnation. 3 For Magistrates are not to be feared for good workes, but for euill. Wilt thou then bee without feare of the power? doe well: so shalt thou haue praise of the same. 4 For he is ye minister of God for thy wealth, but if thou do euill, feare: for he beareth not the sworde for nought: for he is the minister of God to take vengeance on him that doeth euill. 5 Wherefore ye must bee subiect, not because of wrath only, but also for conscience sake.

Psalms 33:12-22

12 Blessed is that nation, whose God is the Lord: euen the people that he hath chosen for his inheritance. 13 The Lord looketh downe from heauen, and beholdeth all the children of men. 14 From the habitation of his dwelling he beholdeth all them that dwell in the earth. 15 He facioneth their hearts euery one, and vnderstandeth all their workes. 16 The King is not saued by the multitude of an hoste, neither is the mightie man deliuered by great strength. 17 A horse is a vaine helpe, and shall not deliuer any by his great strength. 18 Beholde, the eye of the Lord is vpon them that feare him, and vpon them, that trust in his mercie, 19 To deliuer their soules from death, and to preserue them in famine. 20 Our soule waiteth for the Lord: for he is our helpe and our shielde. 21 Surely our heart shall reioyce in him, because we trusted in his holy Name. 22 Let thy mercie, O Lord, be vpon vs, as we trust in thee.
