Rule

Isaiah 3:4, “I will give you youths to be their princes, and unweaned children shall rule over them.” Modern English Version

“Children – in ability for governing; antithesis to the ‘ancient;’ (see v. 12; Ecclesiastes 10:16). Babes – in warlike might; antithesis to ‘the mighty’ and ‘man of war.’ ” Critical and Explanatory Commentary, Vol. I

Isaiah 3:12, “As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people, those who lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths.” Modern English Version

Ecclesiastes 10:16, 17, “Woe to you, O land, when your king is a lad, and your princes are feasting in the morning! Happy are you, O land, when your king is from nobility, and your princes are feasting at the appropriate time – with self-control and not drunkenness!” Modern English Version

Zechariah 10:1 tells us to pray for those in authority that they are:

  1. Wise in governing.
  2. Mighty men of war in defending us.
  3. Leading us down Godly paths.
  4. Self-controlled.
