|GOD'S WORD Translation (GW)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 Every person should obey the government in power. No government would exist if it hadn't been established by God. The governments which exist have been put in place 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.
