English term or phrase:inferior rulers
Proverbs 17:26 : "Also to punish the just is not good, nor to strike princes for equity."
To punish the meanest of men without ground is a very bad thing, for it is a discouragement to virtue and a strong incentive to wickedness; but it is doubly wicked to strike princes for equity, by punishing inferior rulers for acting according to the eternal rules of righteousness, and refusing to truckle to the humor and caprice of their sovereigns.
Lo usa como sinónimo de "princes", que se entiende que se refiere a los que gobiernan por debajo del rey.
