Submission to Authorities1 Every soul [2to authorities 3being superior 1be submitted]! [3no 1For 2there is] authority unless from God; and the ones being authorities [2by 3God 1are ordered]. 2 So that the one rebelling against the authority, [2in the 3disposition of God 1opposes]; and the ones opposing, [3to themselves 2judgment 1shall receive]. 3 For 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]. 5 Therefore 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. 7 Render 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. 8 To no one owe anything, unless it be loving one another. For the one loving the other [2the law 1has fulfilled]. 9 For 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. 10 The love to the neighbor [2evil 1works no], [3then is the fullness 4of the law 1the 2love].
Clothe on The Lord Jesus Christ11 Also this, knowing the time, that the hour we already from out of sleep arise; for now [2is nearer 3us 1deliverance] than when we trusted. 12 The night progressed, and the day approached. We should put aside then the works of darkness, and put on the weapons of the light. 13 As [3by 4day 2decently 1we should walk]; not in debaucheries and in intoxications; not in beds and in lewdnesses; not in strife and in jealousy. 14 But clothe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and [6of the 7flesh 3forethought 1do not 2have 4for 5desire].
