|GOD'S WORD Translation (GW)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 Therefore, whoever resists the government opposes what God has established. Those who resist will bring punishment on themselves.
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.
