1 Let every soul a unto the higher b. For there is no c d: the e that be are ordained of God.
2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that a shall receive to themselves b.
3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the a? do that which is b, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
4 For he is a of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for a sake.
6 a for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; a to whom honour.
8 a no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that b another hath fulfilled the law.
9 For this, Thou shalt not commit a, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not b, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not c; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy d as thyself.
10 a worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the b.
11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high a to awake out of b: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
12 The night is far spent, the a is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of b, and let us put on the c of d.
13 Let us walk a, as in the day; not in b and c, not in d and wantonness, not in strife and e.
14 But a ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the b thereof.
