ContextSubmission to Authorities
13Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; 14Or to governors, as to them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. 15For so is the will of God, that with well doing you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: 16As free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. 17Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king. 18Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the fraudulent. 19For this is thank worthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. 20For what glory is it, if, when you be buffeted for your faults, you shall take it patiently? but if, when you do well, and suffer for it, you take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.
