It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.
A throne is established by righteousness, what is it that makes God able to sit eternally on His throne yet we have seen kings fall, what is it that establishes Kings in their places of Authority and Power.
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
We have many believers that are undefined as Kings mulch as they are Kings. A character full of acts contrary from the lifestyle of a King is to live in error away from God’s purpose for His ambassadors the Kings on earth.
Kings behave in a certain manner, a way that will not jeopardise their name (reputation or character). There is a way they walk, talk, a unique from ordinary people.
⁵There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler: ⁶Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in low place. ⁷I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth. ⁸He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.
Of David’s example:
And it came to pass afterward, that David’s heart smote him, because he had cut off Saul’s skirt.
King David ‘s throne was/is still established is because of righteousness. Even if he had a little or more pitfalls, He still knew the right thing to do and did it; when corrected, he admitted to it and repented ( Ps 51), when his man ( Joab) killed one of His rivals, he reproached and deemed him wicked and mourned for the rival’s death ( 2 Samuel 3:37-39), when he laid hands on Saul who was after his life, he regretted and beat himself ( 1 Samuel 24:5) and thus says; wickedness proceeds from the wicked but my hand shall not be upon You ( Saul). He was in right standing with God, He knew the heart of God and flowed with and in it. This is the true identity of a King, the definition of royalty.
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.
You are a royal priesthood, called forth out of darkness into His marvelous light, we are kings and kings refrain from certain things, they know how to rule themselves ,they know how to rule their passions, desires and fears turning aside from evil.
‘Many live in error that a King is to rule others, A King rules Himself and others will follow Him’
Royalty is my position and to live soberly in godliness, turning aside from evil, shining forth the light of Christ in Me who has called me out darkness into His marvelous light.
I am Shinning , I am making progress each second.

³Do not spend your strength on women, your vigor on those who ruin kings. ⁴It is not for kings, Lemuel— it is not for kings to drink wine, not for rulers to crave beer, ⁵lest they drink and forget what has been decreed, and deprive all the oppressed of their rights. ⁶Let beer be for those who are perishing, wine for those who are in anguish! ⁷Let them drink and forget their poverty and remember their misery no more. ⁸Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. ⁹Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.
