Submission to Authorities1Every soul [2to authorities 3being superior 1be submitted]! [3no 1For 2there is] authority unless from God; and the ones being authorities [2by 3God 1are ordered]. 2So that the one rebelling against the authority, [2in the 3disposition of God 1opposes]; and the ones opposing, [3to themselves 2judgment 1shall receive]. 3For the rulers are not a fear of the ones of good works, but of the ones of evils. [2you should 4want 1But 3not] to be fearful of the authority; by the [2good 1doing] even you shall have high praise from it. 4[3of God 1For 2it is a servant] to you for good. But if [2evil 1you should do], fear! for it does not [4in vain 2the 3sword 1wear]. [4of God 1For 3a servant 2it is], punishing for wrath to the one [2evil 1doing]. 5Therefore it is a necessity to be submitted, not only because of the wrath, but also because of the conscience. 6[2on account of 3this 1For] also [2paying the tribute 1fulfill]! [3ministers 1for 4of God 2they are] in this same thing attending to constantly. 7Render then to all the debts! to the one for the tribute -- the tribute; to the one for the tax -- the tax; to the one commanding fear -- the fear; to the one commanding honor -- the honor. 8To no one owe anything, unless it be loving one another. For the one loving the other [2the law 1has fulfilled]. 9For the commandment, you shall not commit adultery; you shall not murder; you shall not steal; you shall not lust; and if any other commandment, in this the word is recapitulated, in the saying You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 10The love to the neighbor [2evil 1works no], [3then is the fullness 4of the law 1the 2love].
Clothe on The Lord Jesus Christ11Also this, knowing the time, that the hour we already from out of sleep arise; for now [2is nearer 3us 1deliverance] than when we trusted. 12The night progressed, and the day approached. We should put aside then the works of darkness, and put on the weapons of the light. 13As [3by 4day 2decently 1we should walk]; not in debaucheries and in intoxications; not in beds and in lewdnesses; not in strife and in jealousy. 14But clothe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and [6of the 7flesh 3forethought 1do not 2have 4for 5desire].
