|King James Version (KJV)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God : the powers that be are ordained of 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.
