1 G3956 Let every G5590 soul G5293 [G5732] be subject G5242 [G5723] to the higher G1849 powers G1063 . For G2076 [G5748] there is G3756 no G1849 power G1508 but G575 from G2316 God G1161 : G1849 the powers G5607 [G5752] that are, G1526 [G5748] are G5021 [G5772] ordained G5259 by G2316 God.
2 G5620 Whoever therefore G498 [G5734] resisteth G1849 the power G436 [G5758] , resisteth G1296 the ordinance G2316 of God G1161 : and G436 [G5761] they that resist G2983 [G5695] shall receive G1438 to themselves G2917 condemnation.
3 G1063 For G758 rulers G1526 [G5748] are G3756 not G5401 a terror G18 to good G2041 works G235 , but G2556 to the evil G2309 [G5719] . Wilt thou G1161 then G3361 not G5399 [G5738] be afraid G1849 of the power G4160 [G5720] ? do G18 that which is good G2532 , and G2192 [G5692] thou shalt have G1868 praise G1537 from G846 the same:
4 G1063 For G2076 [G5748] he is G1249 the minister G2316 of God G4671 to thee G1519 for G18 good G1161 . But G1437 if G4160 [G5725] thou doest G2556 that which is evil G5399 [G5737] , be afraid G1063 ; for G5409 [G5719] he beareth G3756 not G3162 the sword G1500 in vain G1063 : for G2076 [G5748] he is G1249 the minister G2316 of God G1558 , an avenger G3709 to execute wrath G1519 upon G4238 [G5723] him that doeth G2556 evil.
5 G1352 Therefore G318 ye must needs G5293 [G5733] be subject G3756 , not G3440 only G1223 for G3709 wrath G235 , but G2532 also G4893 for conscience G1223 sake.
6 G1063 For G1223 0 for G5124 this G1223 cause G5055 [G5719] ye pay G5411 tribute G2532 also G1063 : for G1526 [G5748] they are G2316 God's G3011 ministers G4342 [G5723] , attending continually G1519 upon G5124 this G846 very thing.
7 G591 [G5628] Render G3767 therefore G3956 to all G3782 their dues G5411 : tribute G3588 to whom G5411 tribute G5056 is due; custom G3588 to whom G5056 custom G5401 ; fear G3588 to whom G5401 fear G5092 ; honour G3588 to whom G5092 honour.
8 G3784 [G5720] Owe G3367 no man G3367 any thing G1508 , but G25 [G5721] to love G240 one another G1063 : for G25 [G5723] he that loveth G2087 another G4137 [G5758] hath fulfilled G3551 the law.
9 G1063 For G3431 0 this, Thou shalt G3756 not G3431 [G5692] commit adultery G5407 0 , Thou shalt G3756 not G5407 [G5692] kill G2813 0 , Thou shalt G3756 not G2813 [G5692] steal G5576 0 , Thou shalt G3756 not G5576 [G5692] bear false witness G1937 0 , Thou shalt G3756 not G1937 [G5692] covet G2532 ; and G1536 if there is any G2087 other G1785 commandment G346 [G5743] , it is briefly comprehended G1722 in G5129 this G3056 saying G1722 , namely G25 [G5692] , Thou shalt love G4675 thy G4139 neighbour G5613 as G1438 thyself.
10 G26 Love G2038 [G5736] worketh G3756 no G2556 ill G4139 to one's neighbour G3767 : therefore G26 love G4138 is the fulfilling G3551 of the law.
11 G2532 And G5124 this G1492 [G5761] , knowing G2540 the time G3754 , that G2235 now G5610 it is high time G2248 G1453 [G5683] to awake G1537 out of G5258 sleep G1063 : for G3568 now G2257 is our G4991 salvation G1452 nearer G2228 than G3753 when G4100 [G5656] we believed.
12 G3571 The night G4298 [G5656] is far spent G1161 , G2250 the day G1448 [G5758] is at hand G659 0 : let us G3767 therefore G659 [G5643] cast off G2041 the works G4655 of darkness G2532 , and G1746 [G5672] let us put on G3696 the armour G5457 of light.
13 G4043 [G5661] Let us walk G2156 honestly G5613 , as G1722 in G2250 the day G3361 ; not G2970 in revellings G2532 and G3178 drunkenness G3361 , not G2845 in immorality G2532 and G766 wantonness G3361 , not G2054 in strife G2532 and G2205 envying.
