|New King James Version (NKJV)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment 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.
