Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers. + 307 The people themselves, and not their servants, can safely reverse their own deliberate decisions. Abraham Lincoln + 297 Public officers are the servants and agents of the people, to execute the laws which the people have made. Grover Cleveland + 356 The laws and the entire scheme of our civil rule, from the town meeting to the State capitals and the national capital, is yours. Your every voter, as surely as your Chief Magistrate, under the same high sanction, though in a different sphere, exercises a public trust. Nor is this all. Every citizen owes to the country a vigilant watch and close scrutiny of its public servants and a fair and reasonable estimate of their fidelity and usefulness. Thus is the people's will impressed upon the whole framework of our civil polity — municipal, State, and Federal; and this is the price of our liberty and the inspiration of our faith in the Republic. + 382 We need to make our political representatives more quickly and sensitively responsive to the people whose servants they are. ... One of the fundamental necessities in a representative government such as ours is to make certain that the men to whom the people delegate their power shall serve the people by whom they are elected, and not the special interests.

Mishlei 29:21 + 260 Do not say bad things about servants to their masters, or they will curse you, and you will suffer for it. Mishlei 30:10 + 265 At that time the servants of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up against Jerusalem, and the city was besieged. + 295 I made me great works; I builded me houses; I planted me vineyards: / I made me gardens and orchards, and I planted trees in them of all kind of fruits: / I made me pools of water, to water therewith the wood that bringeth forth trees: / I got me servants and maidens, and had servants born in my house; also I had great possessions of great and small cattle above all that were in Jerusalem before me: / I gathered me also silver and gold, and the peculiar treasure of kings and of the provinces: I gat me men singers and women singers, and the delights of the sons of men, as musical instruments, and that of all sorts. + 344 My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place.

Bereshit 12:16 + 205 And he divided himself against them at night, he and his servants, and smote them, and pursued them until Hobah, which is to the left of Damascus. Bereshit 14:15 + 187 And Abimelech arose early in the morning, and he summoned all his servants, and he spoke all these words in their ears; and the men were very frightened. Bereshit 20:8 + 210 And Abimelech took flocks and cattle and menservants and maidservants, and he gave them to Abraham, and he restored to him his wife Sarah. Bereshit 20:14 + 185 And Abraham contended with Abimelech about the well of water that the servants of Abimelech had forcibly seized. Bereshit 21:25 + 224 And the Lord blessed my master exceedingly, and he became great, and He gave him sheep and cattle, silver and gold, man servants and maid servants, camels and donkeys.

Bereshit 26:25 + 198 And it came to pass on that day, that Isaac's servants came and told him about the well that they had dug, and they said to him, We have found water. Bereshit 26:32 + 222 And Isaac answered and said to Esau, Behold, I made him a master over you, and I gave him all his brothers as servants, and I have sustained him with corn and wine; so for you then, what shall I do, my son? Bereshit 27:37 + 207 And the man became exceedingly wealthy, and he had prolific animals, and maidservants and manservants, and camels and donkeys. Bereshit 30:43 + 188 And I have acquired oxen and donkeys, flocks, manservants, and maidservants, and I have sent to tell this to my master, to find favor in your eyes. Bereshit 32:6 + 166 And he gave into the hands of his servants each herd individually, and he said to his servants, Pass on ahead of me and make a space between one herd and another herd. Bereshit 32:17 + 155 And he arose during that night, and he took his two wives and his two maidservants and his eleven children, and he crossed the ford of the Jabbok. Bereshit 32:23 + 200 Jacob lifted his eyes and saw, and behold, Esau was coming, and with him were four hundred men; so he divided the children with Leah and with Rachel and with the two maidservants. Bereshit 33:1 + 168 And he placed the maidservants and their children first and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and her Joseph last. Bereshit 33:2 + 148 And the maidservants and their children drew near and prostrated themselves. Bereshit 33:6 + 177 Now it came about on the third day, Pharaoh's birthday, that Pharaoh made a feast for all his servants, and he counted the chief cupbearer and chief baker among his servants. Bereshit 40:20 + 145 Pharaoh was angry with his servants, and he put me in prison, in the house of the chief slaughterer, me and the chief baker. Bereshit 41:10 + 176 The matter pleased Pharaoh and all his servants. Bereshit 41:37 + 146 So Pharaoh said to his servants, Will we find anyone like this, a man in whom there is the spirit of God? Bereshit 41:38 + 160 And they said to him, No, my master, your servants have come to buy food. Bereshit 42:10 + 149 We are all sons of one man. We are honest. Your servants were never spies. Bereshit 42:11 + 171 And they said, "We, your servants, are twelve brothers, the sons of one man in the land of Canaan, and behold, the youngest is with our father today, and one is gone." Bereshit 42:13 + 162 And they said to him, Why should my master say such words as these? Far be it from your servants to do a thing like this! Bereshit 44:7 + 157 Whichever one of your servants with whom it is found shall die, and also we will be slaves to my master. Bereshit 44:9 + 184 And Judah said, What shall we say to my master? What shall we speak, and how shall we exonerate ourselves? God has found your servants iniquity both we and the one in whose possession the goblet has been found. Bereshit 44:16 + 141 My lord asked his servants, saying, 'Have you a father or a brother?' Bereshit 44:19 + 167 And you said to your servants, Bring him down to me, and I will set my eyes upon him. Bereshit 44:21 + 175 And you said to your servants, If your youngest brother does not come down with you, you will not see my face again. Bereshit 44:23 + 144 It will come to pass, when he sees that the boy is gone, he will die, and your servants will have brought down the hoary head of your servant, our father, in grief to the grave. Bereshit 44:31 + 158 And the voice was heard in Pharaoh's house, saying, "Joseph's brothers have come!" And it pleased Pharaoh and his servants. Bereshit 45:16 + 195 You shall say, Your servants have been owners of livestock from our youth until now, both we and our ancestors, so that you may dwell in the land of Goshen, because all shepherds are abhorrent to the Egyptians. Bereshit 46:34 + 164 And Pharaoh said to his brothers, "What is your occupation?" And they said to Pharaoh, "Your servants are shepherds, both we and our forefathers." Bereshit 47:3 + 169 And they said to Pharaoh, We have come to sojourn in the land, for your servants flocks have no pasture, for the famine is severe in the land of Canaan. Now, please let your servants dwell in the land of Goshen. Bereshit 47:4 + 164 And Joseph commanded his servants, the physicians, to embalm his father, and the physicians embalmed Israel.

Now please forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of your father. Joseph wept when they spoke to him. Bereshit 50:17 + 152 So the officers of the children of Israel came and cried out to Pharaoh, saying, Why do you do this to your servants? Shemot 5:15 + 185 Stubble is not given to your servants, but they tell us, Make bricks, and behold, your servants are beaten, and your people are sinning. Shemot 5:16 + 178 And they said to them, May the Lord look upon you and judge, for you have brought us into foul odor in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of his servants, to place a sword into their hands to kill us. Shemot 5:21 + 160 Thereupon, Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh, and they did so, as the Lord had commanded; Aaron cast his staff before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent. Shemot 7:10 + 170 Moses and Aaron did so, as the Lord had commanded, and he raised the staff and struck the water that was in the Nile before the eyes of Pharaoh and before the eyes of his servants, and all the water that was in the Nile turned to blood. Shemot 7:20 + 170 And the Nile will swarm with frogs, and they will go up and come into your house and into your bedroom and upon your bed and into the house of your servants and into your people, and into your ovens and into your kneading troughs; Shemot 7:28 + 145 And into you and into your people and into all your servants, the frogs will ascend. Shemot 7:29 + 190 And Moses said to Pharaoh, Boast of your superiority over me. For when shall I entreat for you, for your servants, and for your people, to destroy the frogs from you and from your houses, that they should remain only in the Nile? Shemot 8:5 + 157 And the frogs will depart from you and from your houses and from your servants and from your people; only in the Nile will they remain. Shemot 8:7 + 175 For if you do not let My people go, behold, I will incite against you and against your servants and against your people and in your houses a mixture of noxious creatures, and the houses of Egypt will be filled with the mixture of noxious creatures, as well as the land upon which they are. Shemot 8:17 + 159 The Lord did so, and a heavy mixture of noxious creatures came to Pharaoh's house and his servants' house, and throughout the entire land of Egypt, the land was destroyed because of the mixture of noxious creatures. Shemot 8:20 + 204 Moses said, Behold, I am going away from you, and I will entreat the Lord, and the mixture of noxious creatures will depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people tomorrow. Only let Pharaoh not tease anymore, by not letting the people go to sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 8:25 + 179 And the Lord did according to Moses' word, and He removed the mixture of noxious creatures from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; not one was left. Shemot 8:27 + 189 Because this time, I am sending all My plagues into your heart and into your servants and into your people, in order that you know that there is none like Me in the entire earth. Shemot 9:14 + 148 He who feared the word of the Lord of Pharaoh's servants drove his servants and his livestock into the houses. Shemot 9:20 + 144 But he who did not pay attention to the word of the Lord left his servants and his livestock in the field. Shemot 9:21 + 159 But you and your servants I know that you still do not fear the Lord God, Shemot 9:30 + 129 And Pharaoh saw that the rain, the hail, and the thunder had ceased; so he continued to sin, and he strengthened his heart, he and his servants. Shemot 9:34 + 188 The Lord said to Moses: Come to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the heart of his servants, in order that I may place these signs of Mine in his midst, Shemot 10:1 + 179 And your houses and the houses of all your servants and the houses of all the Egyptians will be filled, which your fathers and your fathers fathers did not see since the day they were on the earth until this day. Therewith, he turned and left Pharaoh. Shemot 10:6 + 173 Pharaoh's servants said to him, How long will this one be a stumbling block to us? Let the people go and they will worship their God. Don't you yet know that Egypt is lost? Shemot 10:7 + 155 So the Lord gave the people favor in the Egyptians' eyes; also the man Moses was highly esteemed in the land of Egypt in the eyes of Pharaoh's servants and in the eyes of the people. Shemot 11:3 + 165 And all these servants of yours will come down to me and prostrate themselves to me, saying, Go out, you and all the people who are at your feet, and afterwards I will go out. Then he exited from Pharaoh with burning anger. Shemot 11:8 + 154 And Pharaoh arose at night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians, and there was a great outcry in Egypt, for there was no house in which no one was dead. Shemot 12:30 + 173 It was reported to Pharaoh that the people had fled; and Pharaoh and his servants had a change of heart toward the people, and they said, What is this that we have done, that we have released Israel from serving us? Shemot 14:5 + 160 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants, to whom You swore by Your very Self, and to whom You said: I will multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens, and all this land which I said that I would give to your seed, they shall keep it as their possession forever. Shemot 32:13 + 120 For they are My servants, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt they shall not be sold as a slave is sold. Vayikra 25:42 + 118 For the children of Israel are servants to Me; they are My servants, whom I took out of the land of Egypt. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 25:55 + 109 Balaam answered and said to Balak's servants, Even if Balak gives me a house full of silver and gold, I cannot do anything small or great that would transgress the word of the Lord, my God. Bamidbar 22:18 + 91 God's wrath flared because he was going, and an angel of the Lord stationed himself on the road to thwart him, and he was riding on his she-donkey, and his two servants were with him. Bamidbar 22:22 + 101 They said to Moses, Your servants counted the soldiers who were in our charge, and not one man was missing from us. Bamidbar 31:49 + 91 The land that the Lord struck down before the congregation of Israel is a land for livestock, and your servants have livestock. Bamidbar 32:4 + 93 They said, If it pleases you, let this land be given to your servants as a heritage; do not take us across the Jordan. Bamidbar 32:5 + 85 The descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben spoke to Moses, saying, "Your servants will do as my master commands. Bamidbar 32:25 + 80 But your servants will cross over all who are armed for combat before the Lord, for the battle, as my master has spoken." Bamidbar 32:27 + 78 The descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben answered, saying, "We shall do as the Lord has spoken to your servants. Bamidbar 32:31 + 120 Remember your servants, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; do not turn to the stubbornness of this people, to their wickedness, or to their sin. Devarim 9:27 + 110 And you shall rejoice before the Lord, your God you and your sons and your daughters and your menservants and your maidservants, and the Levite who is within your cities, for he has no portion or inheritance with you. Devarim 12:12 + 111 And Moses called all of Israel and said to them, You have seen all that the Lord did before your very eyes in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh, to all his servants, and to all his land; Devarim 29:1 + 96 When the Lord will judge His people, and will reconsider His servants, when He sees that the power is increasing, and none is controlled or strengthened. Devarim 32:36 + 100 Sing out praise, O you nations, for His people! For He will avenge the blood of His servants, inflict revenge upon His adversaries, and appease His land [and] His people. Devarim 32:43 + 104 As manifested by all the signs and wonders, which the Lord had sent him to perform in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh and all his servants, and to all his land, Devarim 34:11 + 97 As long as we want to be enjoyers instead of servants, we create so many sufferings to ourselves and also to the whole world around us.
