They show how kings were expected to rule in Israel and the evil consequences that flow from a failure to rule according to the law. England is a Christian nation which has been the object of a particular divine providence. As a consequence God is really ruling in England, albeit representatively. The agency of that rule is the law and its administration and the king whose judgements must be set within the laws that divine providence has provided.
