Bible verses about "police" | BBE
1 The evil man goes running away when no man is after him, but the upright are without fear, like the lion. 2 Because of the sin of the land, its troubles are increased; but by a man of wisdom and knowledge they will be put out like a fire. 3 A man of wealth who is cruel to the poor is like a violent rain causing destruction of food. 4 Those who have no respect for the law give praise to the evil-doer; but such as keep the law are against him. 5 Evil men have no knowledge of what is right; but those who go after the Lord have knowledge of all things. 6 Better is the poor man whose ways are upright, than the man of wealth whose ways are not straight. 7 He who keeps the law is a wise son, but he who keeps company with feasters puts shame on his father. 8 He who makes his wealth greater by taking interest, only gets it together for him who has pity on the poor. 9 As for the man whose ear is turned away from hearing the law, even his prayer is disgusting. 10 Anyone causing the upright to go wandering in an evil way, will himself go down into the hole he has made; but the upright will have good things for their heritage. 11 The man of wealth seems to himself to be wise, but the poor man who has sense has a low opinion of him. 12 When the upright do well, there is great glory; but when evil-doers are lifted up, men do not let themselves be seen. 13 He who keeps his sins secret will not do well; but one who is open about them, and gives them up, will get mercy. 14 Happy is the man in whom is the fear of the Lord at all times; but he whose heart is hard will come into trouble. 15 Like a loud-voiced lion and a wandering bear, is an evil ruler over a poor people. 16 The prince who has no sense is a cruel ruler; but he who has no desire to get profit for himself will have long life. 17 One who has been the cause of a man's death will go in flight to the underworld: let no man give him help. 18 He whose ways are upright will be safe, but sudden will be the fall of him whose ways are twisted. 19 By ploughing his land a man will have bread in full measure; but he who goes after good-for-nothing persons will be poor enough. 20 A man of good faith will have great blessing, but one attempting to get wealth quickly will not go free from punishment. 21 It is not good to have respect for a man's position: for a man will do wrong for a bit of bread. 22 He who is ever desiring wealth goes running after money, and does not see that need will come on him. 23 He who says words of protest to a man will later have more approval than one who says smooth words with his tongue. 24 He who takes from his father or his mother what is theirs by right, and says, It is no sin; is the same as a taker of life. 25 He who is ever desiring profit is a cause of fighting; but he who puts his faith in the Lord will be made fat. 26 He whose faith is in himself is foolish; but everyone walking wisely will be kept safe. 27 He who gives to the poor will never be in need, but great curses will be on him who gives no attention to them. 28 When evil-doers are lifted up, men take cover; but when destruction overtakes them, the upright are increased.
1 A Psalm. Of David. Praise be to the God of my strength, teaching my hands the use of the sword, and my fingers the art of fighting:
8 And the voice of the Lord came to my ears, saying, Whom am I to send, and who will go for us? Then I said, Here am I, send me.
19 See, I have given you power to put your feet on snakes and evil beasts, and over all the strength of him who is against you: and nothing will do you damage.
9 Have I not given you your orders? Take heart and be strong; have no fear and do not be troubled; for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go,
13 Greater love has no man than this, that a man gives up his life for his friends.
13 Keep all the laws of men because of the Lord; those of the king, who is over all, 14 And those of the rulers who are sent by him for the punishment of evil-doers and for the praise of those who do well. 15 Because it is God's pleasure that foolish and narrow-minded men may be put to shame by your good behaviour: 16 As those who are free, not using your free position as a cover for wrongdoing, but living as the servants of God; 17 Have respect for all, loving the brothers, fearing God, honouring the king.
1 Let everyone put himself under the authority of the higher powers, because there is no power which is not of God, and all powers are ordered by God. 2 For which reason everyone who puts himself against the authority puts himself against the order of God: and those who are against it will get punishment for themselves. 3 For rulers are not a cause of fear to the good work but to the evil. If you would have no fear of the authority, do good and you will have praise; 4 For he is the servant of God to you for good. But if you do evil, have fear; for the sword is not in his hand for nothing: he is God's servant, making God's punishment come on the evil-doer. 5 So put yourselves under the authority, not for fear of wrath, but because you have the knowledge of what is right. 6 For the same reason, make payment of taxes; because the authority is God's servant, to take care of such things at all times. 7 Give to all what is their right: taxes to him whose they are, payment to him whose right it is, fear to whom fear, honour to whom honour is to be given. 8 Be in debt for nothing, but to have love for one another: for he who has love for his neighbour has kept all the law. 9 And this, Do not be untrue in married life, Do not put to death, Do not take what is another's, Do not have desire for what is another's, and if there is any other order, it is covered by this word, Have love for your neighbour as for yourself. 10 Love does no wrong to his neighbour, so love makes the law complete. 11 See then that the time has come for you to be awake from sleep: for now is your salvation nearer than when you first had faith. 12 The night is far gone, and the day is near: so let us put off the works of the dark, arming ourselves with light, 13 With right behaviour as in the day; not in pleasure-making and drinking, not in bad company and unclean behaviour, not in fighting and envy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not give thought to the flesh to do its desires.
4 For he is the servant of God to you for good. But if you do evil, have fear; for the sword is not in his hand for nothing: he is God's servant, making God's punishment come on the evil-doer.
9 Happy are the peacemakers: for they will be named sons of God.
