|Good News Translation (GNT)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 Everyone must obey state authorities, because no authority exists without God's permission, and the existing authorities have been put there by God.
1 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
