Governor

From the perspective of Bible History, the English word governor was used to translate a wide variety of original Hebrew and Greek words of the Bible. It applied to officials in a royal palace, heads of tribes or families, magistrates, prime ministers, territorial rulers, military commanders, labor supervisors and others in offices of religious or political authority. Although their positions were very often a matter of "politics," they were usually appointed by higher rulers, not elected.

Tower of David Examples of "governors" from The Bible:

Fact Finder: Are God's people to be subject (i.e. obey all man-made laws that do not violate God's Laws) to the human governors of the societies in which they live?
1 Peter 2:13-17
