|English Standard Version (ESV)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.
2 Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.
