THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Exodus (Author Moses)

22:28Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy people.

Numbers (Author Moses)

27:20And thou shalt put some of thine honour upon him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient.

Ezra (Author Ezra)

6:10That they may offer sacrifices of sweet savours unto the God of heaven, and pray for the life of the king, and of his sons.

7:26And whosoever will not do the law of thy God, and the law of the king, let judgment be executed speedily upon him, whether it be unto death, or to banishment, or to confiscation of goods, or to imprisonment.

10:8And that whosoever would not come within three days, according to the counsel of the princes and the elders, all his substance should be forfeited, and himself separated from the congregation of those that had been carried away.

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

16:14The wrath of a king is as messengers of death: but a wise man will pacify it.

16:15In the light of the king's countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.

24:21My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change:

25:6Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men:

25:7For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.

25:15By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.

Ecclesiastes (Author Solomon)

8:2I counsel thee to keep the king's commandment, and that in regard of the oath of God.

8:3Be not hasty to go out of his sight: stand not in an evil thing; for he doeth whatsoever pleaseth him.

8:4Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?

10:4If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for yielding pacifieth great offences.

10:20Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.

Jeremiah (Author Jeremiah)

29:7And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.

Matthew (Author Matthew)

17:24And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute?

17:25He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers?

17:26Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.

17:27Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

22:17Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

22:18But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?

22:19Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.

22:20And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

22:21They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.

Mark (Author John Mark)

12:14And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?

12:15Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.

12:16And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar's.

12:17And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him.

Luke (Author Luke)

20:22Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no?

20:23But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me?

20:24Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar's.

20:25And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's.

Acts (Author Luke)

19:35And when the townclerk had appeased the people, he said, Ye men of Ephesus, what man is there that knoweth not how that the city of the Ephesians is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana, and of the image which fell down from Jupiter?

19:36Seeing then that these things cannot be spoken against, ye ought to be quiet, and to do nothing rashly.

19:37For ye have brought hither these men, which are neither robbers of churches, nor yet blasphemers of your goddess.

19:38Wherefore if Demetrius, and the craftsmen which are with him, have a matter against any man, the law is open, and there are deputies: let them implead one another.

19:39But if ye enquire any thing concerning other matters, it shall be determined in a lawful assembly.

19:40For we are in danger to be called in question for this day's uproar, there being no cause whereby we may give an account of this concourse.

19:41And when he had thus spoken, he dismissed the assembly.

23:5Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people.

Romans (Author Paul)

13:1Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

13:2Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

13:3For 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:

13:5Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.

13:6For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.

13:7Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.

1 Timothy (Author Paul)

2:1I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

2:2For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

Titus (Author Paul)

3:1Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,

1 Peter (Author Peter)

2:13Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;

2:14Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.

2:15For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:

2:16As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.

2:17Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.
