Romans 13:1 - 7


13:1 - Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

13:2 - Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

13:3 - For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:

13:4 - For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

13:5 - Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.

13:6 - For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.

13:7 - Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
