13 Everyone must submit to the governing authorities, x for there is no authority except from God, y and those that exist are instituted by God. 2 So then, the one who resists the authority is opposing God’s command, and those who oppose it will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not a terror z to good conduct, but to bad. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have its approval.
