See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant. (1: Ver. 10.)

See, I have this day set thee over nations… With authority to use the same liberty in reproving their sins that they take in committing them.  

 

The painting: The Covenant Confirmed, by John Steeple Davis (1844-1917), as in Exodus 24.
