1Listen therefore, O kings, and understand; learn, O judges of the ends of the earth. 2Give ear, you that rule over multitudes, and boast of many nations. 3For your dominion was given you from the Lord, and your sovereignty from the Most High, who will search out your works and inquire into your plans. 4Because as servants of his kingdom you did not rule rightly, nor keep the law, nor walk according to the purpose of God, 5he will come upon you terribly and swiftly, because severe judgment falls on those in high places. 6For the lowliest man may be pardoned in mercy, but mighty men will be mightily tested. 7For the Lord of all will not stand in awe of any one, nor show deference to greatness; because he himself made both small and great, and he takes thought for all alike. 8But a strict inquiry is in store for the mighty. 9To you then, O monarchs, my words are directed, that you may learn wisdom and not transgress. 10For they will be made holy who observe holy things in holiness, and those who have been taught them will find a defense. 11Therefore set your desire on my words; long for them, and you will be instructed.
Psalms 82:3-4, 6-7
3Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. 4Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked." 6I say, "You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you; 7nevertheless, you shall die like men, and fall like any prince."
11On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Sama'ria and Galilee. 12And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance 13and lifted up their voices and said, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us." 14When he saw them he said to them, "Go and show yourselves to the priests." And as they went they were cleansed. 15Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; 16and he fell on his face at Jesus' feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. 17Then said Jesus, "Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? 18Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?" 19And he said to him, "Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well."
