Romans 13:1-4 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible

Be Subject to Government

1 Every a1person is to be in 2subjection to the governing authorities. For 3there is no authority except bfrom God, and those which exist are established by God. 2 Therefore cwhoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. 3 For 4rulers are not a cause of fear for dgood behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; 4 for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an 5avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil.
