Romans 13

Chapter 13

13:2  Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.


Condemnation, i.e. in the sense of judgment by the magistrate.

13:8  Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.


See Leviticus 19:13 ; Proverbs 22:7 .

13:11  And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.


"Nearer" in the sense of the full result of salvation in glory. (See Scofield "Romans 1:16") . Also, 1 John 3:2 .
