There is no mention of human government being authorized by God in the world before the Flood. Human government began when those few survivors from the Ark were told for the first time that "whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed…" (Gen. 9:6).

This was not giving humans the right to take personal vengeance, but rather civil governments were first authorized and empowered by God to punish evil doers and to reward those who do good. St. Paul 's New Testament instruction in Romans 13 to be obedient to governing authorities refers back to this portion of Genesis 9 where nations were first organized after the Flood.

This new way of governing in the post-Flood Earth impacted the intensity of the Curse. Now God expected authorized human government to punish the wicked. God took one step back from direct punishment of evil doers. The Post-Flood world has been a time when God's punishments have been mainly through the hands of others – authorized human lawmen or even using one nation to punish another.
