This proverb is a message of hope to people who must live and work under unjust authoritarian leader. It is also a warning to those who enjoy ruling with an iron hand.  Sometimes God intervenes and directly destroys tyrants.  More often he uses other rulers to overthrow them or their own oppressed people to rebel against them.  If you are in a position of authority at church, work or home, remember what happens to tyrants.  Leadership through kindness is more effective and longer lasting than leadership by force.
