Governmental Wrath 20:2

Governmental Wrath
Proverbs 20:2

A king’s wrath strikes terror
like the roar of a lion;
those who anger him forfeit their lives.

PCdc Commentary

Reminiscent of Romans 13:4
For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good.
But if you do wrong, be afraid,
for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason.
They are God’s servants,
agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.

A wise person must count the cost before angering the authorities.
Sometimes, you get to pick the hill you’re gonna die on.
