|New Living Translation (NLT)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 Obey the government, for God is the one who put it there. All governments have been placed in power 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.
