And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes,
Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,
The kings of the earth stood up , and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.
But he that did his neighbour wrong thrust him away , saying , Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us?
This Moses whom they refused , saying , Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush.
For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not , nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him.
And when there was an assault made both of the Gentiles, and also of the Jews with their rulers, to use them despitefully , and to stone them,
Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written , Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people.
