Bible: Exodus 18:19-21

18:19 Now listen to me, 1  I will give you advice, and may God be with you: You be a representative for the people to God, 2  and you bring 3  their disputes 4  to God; 18:20 warn 5  them of the statutes and the laws, and make known to them the way in which they must walk 6  and the work they must do. 7  18:21 But you choose 8  from the people capable men, 9  God-fearing, 10  men of truth, 11  those who hate bribes, 12  and put them over the people 13  as rulers 14  of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.
