   Romans  Chapter 13  KJV  (King James Version)


               

1  Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
 
2  Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
 
3  For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
 
4  For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
 
5  Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
