Striving for Stellar Performances

Actors and actresses are not the only professionals who should endeavor to give grand performances.  Here is bit of instruction officials that execute, legislate, or administer justice should heed in their duties.

Hear therefore, you kings, and understand;
learn, you judges of the ends of the earth;
give ear, you that have dominion over multitudes
and boast of many nations,
because your dominion was given you from the Lord
and your dominance from the Most High.

He will examine your deeds and inquire into your counsels,
because, being servants of his kingdom, you did not judge rightly
or keep the law
or walk according to the counsel of God.

Terribly and swiftly he will come upon you,
because a severe judgment falls on those in high places.

For the least may be pardoned in mercy,
but the mighty will be mightily tested,
for the Sovereign Lord of all will not give way to anyone
or have regard for greatness,
because he himself made small and great
and takes thought for all alike,
but a strict inquiry awaits for the powerful.

To you therefore, you princes, my words are addressed,
that you may learn wisdom and not fall into error.

For those who have observed holy things in holiness will be made holy,
and those who have been taught them will find a defense.

Set your desire therefore on my words;
long for them, and you will be instructed.

Wisdom of Solomon 6:1-11
