2Chr 19:6-7 - How the godly approach government jobs

Romans 13 makes it plain that this holds up for all governments in every age.

and said to the judges, “Take heed to what you are doing, for you do not judge for man but for the Lord, who is with you in the judgment. Now therefore, let the fear of the Lord be upon you; take care and do it, for there is no iniquity with the Lord our God, no partiality, nor taking of bribes.”

While v11 makes clear that the "general equity principle" is how this must operate, that principle itself means that the godly magistrate will be seeking biblical instruction for how he is to rule.

God grant, in every nation, men who govern thus, by grace in Christ!
