Romans 13

13:1 Let every soul be subject to the higher powers. For there
 is no power but from God: the powers that are, are ordained by
13:2 Whoever 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 from the same:
13:4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou
 doest that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the
 sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, an avenger 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 ye pay 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; honor to
 whom honor.
13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that
 loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
13:9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not
 kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
 Thou shalt not covet; and if [there is] any other commandment,
 it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt
 love thy neighbor as thyself.
13:10 Love worketh no ill to one's neighbor: therefore love [is]
 the fulfilling of the law.
13:11 And this, knowing the time, that now [it is] high time to
 awake out of sleep: for now [is] our salvation nearer than when
 we believed.
13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us
 therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the
 armor of light.
13:13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and
 drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife
 and envying.
13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not
 provision for the lusts of flesh.
