JST, Romans 13:6–7. Compare Romans 13:6–7

Those who honor civil authorities make their honor to God greater and more perfect.

6 For, for this cause pay ye your consecrations also unto them; for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.

7 But first, render to all their dues, according to custom, tribute to whom tribute, custom to whom custom, that your consecrations may be done in fear of him to whom fear belongs, and in honor of him to whom honor belongs.
