2. Toward Human Institutions
13 1Be asubject to every human 2institution 3for the Lord's sake, whether to a bking as being supreme,
14 Or to governors as being sent by him for avengeance on evildoers and praise of those who do bgood.
15 For so is the awill of God, that by doing good you would muzzle the bignorance of 1foolish men;
16 As afree, and yet bnot having freedom as a covering for evil, but as cslaves of God.
17 aHonor all men. bLove the 1brotherhood. cFear God. Honor the dking.
