Let everyG3956 soulG5590 be subjectG5293 to the higherG5242 powers.G1849 For there is noG3756 powerG1849 but of God:G2316 the powersG1849 that be are ordainedG5021 of God.G2316
WhoeverG3588 thereforeG5620 resistsG498 the power,G1849 resistsG436 the ordinanceG1296 of God:G2316 and they that resistG436 shall receiveG2983 to themselvesG1438 damnation.G2917
For rulersG758 are not a terrorG5401 to goodG18 works,G2041 but to the evil.G2556 WillG2309 you thenG1161 not be afraidG5399 of the power?G1849 doG4160 that which is good,G18 and you shall haveG2192 praiseG1868 of the same:G846
For he is the ministerG1249 of GodG2316 to you for good.G18 But ifG1437 you doG4160 that which is evil,G2556 be afraid;G5399 for he bearsG5409 not the swordG3162 in vain:G1500 for he is the ministerG1249 of God,G2316 a revengerG1558 to execute wrathG3709 on him that doesG4238 evil.G2556
WhyG1352 you must needsG318 be subject,G5293 not onlyG3440 for wrath,G3709 but alsoG2532 for conscienceG4893 sake.
For for thisG5124 causeG1223 payG5055 you tributeG5411 also:G2532 for they are God'sG2316 ministers,G3011 attendingG4342 continuallyG4342 on thisG5124 veryG846 thing.
RenderG591 thereforeG3767 to allG3956 their dues:G3782 tributeG5411 to whomG3588 tributeG5411 is due;G514 customG5056 to whomG3588 custom;G5056 fearG5401 to whomG3588 fear;G5401 honorG5092 to whomG3588 honor.G5092
OweG3784 noG3367 manG3367 anyG3367 thing, but to loveG25 oneG240 another:G240 for he that lovesG25 anotherG2087 has fulfilledG4137 the law.G3551
For this,G3588 You shall not commitG3431 adultery,G3431 You shall not kill,G5407 You shall not steal,G2813 You shall not bearG5576 falseG5576 witness,G5576 You shall not covet;G1937 and ifG1487 there be anyG1536 otherG2087 commandment,G1785 it is brieflyG346 comprehendedG346 in thisG5129 saying,G3056 namely,G1722 You shall loveG25 your neighborG4139 as yourself.G1438
LoveG26 worksG2038 noG3756 illG2556 to his neighbor:G4139 thereforeG3767 loveG26 is the fulfillingG4138 of the law.G3551
And that, knowingG1492 the time,G2540 that nowG2236 it is high timeG5610 to awakeG1453 out of sleep:G5258 for nowG3568 is our salvationG4991 nearerG1452 thanG2228 whenG3753 we believed.G4100
The nightG3571 is far spent,G4298 the dayG2250 is atG1448 hand:G1448 let us thereforeG3767 castG656 offG659 the worksG2041 of darkness,G4655 and let us putG1746 onG1746 the armorG3696 of light.G5457
Let us walkG4043 honestly,G2156 as in the day;G2250 not in riotingG2970 and drunkenness,G3178 not in chamberingG2845 and wantonness,G766 not in strifeG2054 and envying.G2205
But putG1746 you onG1746 the LordG2962 JesusG2424 Christ,G5547 and makeG4160 not provisionG4307 for the flesh,G4561 to fulfill the lustsG1939 thereof.
