Bible verses about "police" | Geneva
1 The wicked flee when none pursueth: but the righteous are bolde as a lyon. 2 For the transgression of the land there are many princes thereof: but by a man of vnderstanding and knowledge a realme likewise endureth long. 3 A poore man, if he oppresse the poore, is like a raging raine, that leaueth no foode. 4 They that forsake the Law, prayse the wicked: but they that keepe the Law, set themselues against them. 5 Wicked men vnderstand not iudgemnt: but they that seeke the Lord vnderstand all things. 6 Better is the poore that walketh in his vprightnesse, then hee that peruerteth his wayes, though he be riche. 7 He that keepeth the Law, is a childe of vnderstanding: but hee that feedeth the gluttons, shameth his father. 8 He that increaseth his riches by vsurie and interest, gathereth them for him that will be mercifull vnto the poore. 9 He that turneth away his eare from hearing the Law, euen his prayer shalbe abominable. 10 He that causeth the righteous to go astray by an euill way, shall fall into his owne pit, and the vpright shall inherite good things. 11 The riche man is wise in his owne conceite: but the poore that hath vnderstanding, can trie him. 12 When righteous men reioyce, there is great glory: but when the wicked come vp, the man is tried. 13 He that hideth his sinnes, shall not prosper: but he that confesseth, and forsaketh them, shall haue mercy. 14 Blessed is the man that feareth alway: but he that hardeneth his heart, shall fall into euill. 15 As a roaring lyon, and an hungry beare, so is a wicked ruler ouer the poore people. 16 A prince destitute of vnderstanding, is also a great oppressour: but hee that hateth couetousnes, shall prolong his dayes. 17 A man that doeth violence against the blood of a person, shall flee vnto the graue, and they shall not stay him. 18 He that walketh vprightly, shalbe saued: but he that is froward in his wayes, shall once fall. 19 He that tilleth his land, shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth the idle, shall be filled with pouertie. 20 A faythfull man shall abound in blessings, and he that maketh haste to be riche, shall not be innocent. 21 To haue respect of persons is not good: for that man will transgresse for a piece of bread. 22 A man with a wicked eye hasteth to riches, and knoweth not, that pouertie shall come vpon him. 23 He that rebuketh a man, shall finde more fauour at length, then he that flattereth with his tongue. 24 Hee that robbeth his father and mother, and sayth, It is no transgression, is the companion of a man that destroyeth. 25 He that is of a proude heart, stirreth vp strife: but he that trusteth in the Lord, shall be fatte. 26 Hee that trusteth in his owne heart, is a foole: but he that walketh in wisdome, shall be deliuered. 27 He that giueth vnto the poore, shall not lacke: but he that hideth his eyes, shall haue many curses. 28 When the wicked rise vp, men hide them selues: but when they perish, ye righteous increase.
8 Also I heard the voyce of the Lord, saying, Whome shall I send? and who shall goe for vs? Then I sayd, Here am I, send me.
1 A Psalme of David. Blessed be the Lord my strength, which teacheth mine hands to fight, and my fingers to battell.
19 Beholde, I giue vnto you power to treade on Serpents, and Scorpions, and ouer all the power of the enemie, and nothing shall hurt you.
9 Haue not I commanded thee, saying, Be strong and of a good courage, feare not, nor be discouraged? for I the Lord thy God will be with thee, whithersoeuer thou goest.
13 Greater loue then this hath no man, when any man bestoweth his life for his friendes.
13 Therefore submit your selues vnto all maner ordinance of man for the Lordes sake, whether it be vnto the King, as vnto the superiour, 14 Or vnto gouernours, as vnto them that are sent of him, for the punishment of euill doers, and for the praise of them that doe well. 15 For so is the will of God, that by well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of the foolish men, 16 As free, and not as hauing the libertie for a cloke of maliciousnesse, but as the seruauntes of God. 17 Honour all men: loue brotherly fellowship: feare God: honour the King.
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. 6 For, for this cause ye pay also tribute: for they are Gods ministers, applying themselues for the same thing. 7 Giue to all men therefore their duetie: tribute, to whome yee owe tribute: custome, to whom custome: feare, to whome feare: honour, to whom ye owe honour. 8 Owe nothing to any man, but to loue one another: for he that loueth another, hath fulfilled the Lawe. 9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adulterie, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steale, Thou shalt not beare false witnes, Thou shalt not couet: and if there be any other commandement, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, euen in this, Thou shalt loue thy neighbour as thy selfe. 10 Loue doeth not euill to his neighbour: therefore is loue the fulfilling of the Lawe. 11 And that, considering the season, that it is now time that we should arise from sleepe: for now is our saluation neerer, then when we beleeued it. 12 The night is past, and the day is at hande, let vs therefore cast away the workes of darkenesse, and let vs put on the armour of light, 13 So that wee walke honestly, as in the day: not in gluttonie, and drunkennesse, neither in chambering and wantonnes, nor in strife and enuying. 14 But put yee on the Lord JESUS CHRIST, and take no thought for the flesh, to fulfill the lustes of it.
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.
9 Blessed are the peace makers: for they shall be called the children of God.
