Bible Quotes in Song Listen
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
(Psalm 1:1,2)

Be wise now, therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.  Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.  Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little.  Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
(Psalm 2:10-12)

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens
(Psalm 96:5)

(Psalm 47:7-9)

O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah. Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.
(Psalm 67:4-6)

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.

Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
(Psalm 146:3,4)

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
(Isaiah 9:6,7)

So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.

Inspirational Quotes from Famous Persons
Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.
--Harry S. Truman
A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.
--Edward Abbey (1927-1989) US author
Government is not reason. Government is not eloquence. It is force. And, like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.
--George Washington
So long as governments set the example of killing their enemies, private individuals will occasionally kill theirs.
--Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915) American author
I believe that all government is evil, and that trying to improve it is largely a waste of time.
--H. L. Mencken (1880 - 1956)
By definition, a government has no conscience, sometimes it has a policy, but nothing more.
--Albert Camus (1913-1960)

Government and the Bible

Those in authority are ultimately responsible to God.
"And when he has been crowned and sits upon his throne as king, then he must copy these laws from the book kept by the Levite-priests. That copy of the laws shall be his constant companion. He must read from it every day of his life so that he will learn to respect the Lord his God by obeying all of His commands." Deuteronomy 17:18-19, TLB

Those in authority are responsible for choosing good leaders.
"Appoint judges and administrative officials for all the cities the Lord your God is giving you. They will administer justice in every part of the land. Never twist justice to benefit a rich man, and never accept bribes. For bribes blind the eyes of the wisest and corrupt their decisions." Deuteronomy 16:18-19, TLB

We should obey the governmental authorities that God has placed in power.
"Obey the government , for God is the one who has put it there. There is no government anywhere that God has not placed in power. So those who refuse to obey the laws of the land are refusing to obey God, and punishment will follow. For the policeman does not frighten people who are doing right; but those doing evil will always fear him. So if you don't want to be afraid, keep the laws and you will get along well. The policeman is sent by God to help you. But if you are doing something wrong, of course you should be afraid, for he will have you punished. He is sent by God for that very purpose." Romans 13:1-4, TLB

Believers should cooperate with the authorities wherever possible.
"Remind your people to obey the government and its officers, and always to be obedient and ready for any honest work." Titus 3:1, TLB

Sometimes obedience to God and His law may require disobedience of earthly powers. "We must obey God rather than men!" Acts 5:29, NIV

Jesus gave an example of citizenship in paying taxes.
"But so that we may not offend them, go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours." Matthew 17:27, NIV

Christians should willingly pay their taxes.
"Obey the laws, then, for two reasons: first, to keep from being punished, and second, just because you know you should. Pay your taxes too, for these same two reasons. For government workers need to be paid so that they can keep on doing God's work, serving you. Pay everyone whatever he ought to have: pay your taxes and import duties gladly, obey those over you, and give honour and respect to all those to whom it is due." Romans 13:5-7, TLB5
