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.
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.
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:
13:4For 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.
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.
3:1Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
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.
