1 Peter 2:13-17

ESV 13 Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, MSG 13 Make the Master proud of you by being good citizens. Respect the authorities, whatever their level; ESV 14 or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. MSG 14 they are God's emissaries for keeping order. ESV 15 For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. MSG 15 It is God's will that by doing good, you might cure the ignorance of the fools who think you're a danger to society. ESV 16 Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. MSG 16 Exercise your freedom by serving God, not by breaking the rules. ESV 17 Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor. MSG 17 Treat everyone you meet with dignity. Love your spiritual family. Revere God. Respect the government.
