Romans 13:1-7

ESV 1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. NIV 1 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. ESV 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. NIV 2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. ESV 3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, NIV 3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. ESV 4 for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. NIV 4 For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. ESV 5 Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience. NIV 5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience. ESV 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. NIV 6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. ESV 7 Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed. NIV 7 Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
