Romans 13:1–4

Be Subject to Government

1 Every 1aperson is to be in bsubjection to the governing authorities. For cthere is no authority except 2from God, and those which exist are established by God.

2 Therefore 1whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves.

3 For arulers are not a cause of fear for 1good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same;

4 for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an aavenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil.
