are ordained of God.

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