Obedience To The Governing Authorities

1 Every person must be submissive to the ruling authorities, for all authorities come from God. And the existence of authorities has been established by God. 2 Therefore, the person who resists [these] authorities is opposing what God has ordained. And those who oppose [these authorities] will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For [our] rulers are not a threat to [the person doing] a good deed, but to [the person doing] an evil one. So, do you want to avoid having to be afraid of the authorities? Then do what is good and you will be commended by them [generally].
