|New Century Version (NCV)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 So those who are against the government are really against what God has commanded. And they 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.
