045:013:001
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.


045:013:002
Whosoever therefore resisteth the power,
resisteth the ordinance of God:
and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.


045:013:003
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:


045:013:004
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.


045:013:005
Wherefore ye must needs be subject,
not only for wrath,
but also for conscience sake.


045:013:006
For for this cause pay ye tribute also:
for they are God's ministers,
attending continually upon this very thing.


045:013:007
Render therefore to all their dues:
tribute to whom tribute is due;
custom to whom custom;
fear to whom fear;
honour to whom honour.


045:013:008
Owe no man any thing,
but to love one another:
for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.


045:013:009
For this,
Thou shalt not commit adultery,
Thou shalt not kill,
Thou shalt not steal,
Thou shalt not bear false witness,
Thou shalt not covet;
and if there be any other commandment,
it is briefly comprehended in this saying,
namely,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.


045:013:010
Love worketh no ill to his neighbour:
therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.


045:013:011
And that,
knowing the time,
that now it is high time to awake out of sleep:
for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.


045:013:012
The night is far spent,
the day is at hand:
let us therefore cast off the works of darkness,
and let us put on the armour of light.


045:013:013
Let us walk honestly,
as in the day;
not in rioting and drunkenness,
not in chambering and wantonness,
not in strife and envying.


045:013:014
But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make not provision for the flesh,
to fulfil the lusts thereof.
