Even though the Israelites made many territorial conquests under the leadership of King David, these gains would only be temporary. They would later lose much of the lands they gained. David, though he was a good king, also sinned against God. He coveted another’s wife and indirectly had her husband killed. Even though Solomon was wise, all his wisdom could not prevent him from sinning against God.
Macbeth is still a hero to the king, and everyone else in the kingdom, but does he still believe that he is a hero? You can be a good person and make bad choices, and I believe that Macbeth is like that because he is a good person and a hero, but he is about to do a tragic thing to him and his kingdom.

The way the Babylonians lived life is identical to the way we live our life today. In today's society we are governed and protected by laws, well we can say the same about Ancient Babylonia their society was governed and protected by the Code of Hammurabi(1750). The Code of Hammurabi main purposes were " to make justice visible in the land, to destroy the wicked person and the evil doer, so that the strong might not injure the weak". Our legal system is somewhat like this in terms of we sentence and enforce punishments on the criminals to protect other innocent citizens.

Having one person who makes decisions allows for ease of those decisions and gives the civilians one voice that reigns supreme rather than having different members of upper government give different opinions. It is human nature to want a leader and to want one who is a judge to bring about justice to those who have done something that is considered evil. A king, being the only judge, must have good judgement in order to be a benevolent king because of the power that one would possess in that position. However, as history has shown, absolute power tends to corrupt absolutely. In the case of Gilgamesh, this was true as he was a corrupt king in the beginning of the story.
Partially due to the restrictions of freedom this imposed, the Israelites became desirous of a kingdom like the other nations had. The type of government they wanted represents one form of autocracy, the monarchy.

These laws were instituted during the days ancient chivalry, but as years have flown they have been modified in a great degree, many of them being quite obsolete and others entirely changed. Some, however, have been but slightly varied, to suit the times, being governed by the laws of good taste and common sense, and these not only facilitate the intercourse of persons in society, but are also essential to their ease and composure of manner. "And manners," said the eloquent Edmund Burke, "are of more importance than laws, for upon them in a great measure the laws depend. The law can touch us here and there, now and then.

Durkheim identified that any breech of the accepted behavioural code could possibly lead to deviance and even to criminality. This social consciousness certainly regulates personal and social life and encourages social solidarity. In modern society we can see that there is an accepted code of behaviour set down by the law. Most law systems throughout the world are base don religious teachings and values.
