20Can a corrupt throne be allied with you-- a throne that brings on misery by its decrees?20Can wicked rulers be allied with you, those who frame injustice by statute?20Can a throne of destruction be allied with You, One which devises mischief by decree?20Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?20Can a corrupt throne-- one that creates trouble by law-- become Your ally?
