Portia says that a king will judge by mixing mercy and justice. She says that mercy is God like attribute.

But mercy is above this sceptered sway.

It is enthronèd in the hearts of kings.

It is an attribute to God himself.

And earthly power doth then show likest God’s

When mercy seasons justice.
