|New Living Translation (NLT)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 So those who refuse to obey the laws of the land are refusing to obey God, and punishment will follow.
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.
