Judge This People According To The Commandments Of God

American Scripture

Mosiah explained how, whether a nation is ruled by a King or Judges, that the laws should be based upon God’s laws.

Therefore I will be your king the remainder of my days; nevertheless, let us appoint judges, to judge this people according to our law; and we will newly arrange the affairs of this people, for we will appoint wise men to be judges, that will judge this people according to the commandments of God.

Now it is better that a man should be judged of God than of man, for the judgments of God are always just, but the judgments of man are not always just.
