131Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution,a whether it be to the emperorb as supreme,
or to governors as sent by him 2to punish those who do evil and 3to praise those who do good.
For this is the will of God, 4that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people.
165Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but 6living as servantsc of God.
177Honor everyone. 8Love the brotherhood. 9Fear God. Honor the emperor.
