- Let every soul be subject to the authorities that are above [him]. For there is no authority except from God; and those that exist are set up by God.
- So that he that sets himself in opposition to the authority resists the ordinance of God; and they who [thus] resist shall bring sentence of guilt on themselves.
- For rulers are not a terror to a good work, but to an evil [one]. Dost thou desire then not to be afraid of the authority? practise [what is] good, and thou shalt have praise from it;
- for it is God's minister to thee for good. But if thou practisest evil, fear; for it bears not the sword in vain; for it is God's minister, an avenger for wrath to him that does evil.
- Wherefore it is necessary to be subject, not only on account of wrath, but also on account of conscience.
- For on this account ye pay tribute also; for they are God's officers, attending continually on this very thing.
- Render to all their dues: to whom tribute [is due], tribute; to whom custom, custom; to whom fear, fear; to whom honour, honour.
- Owe no one anything, unless to love one another: for he that loves another has fulfilled the law.
- For, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not lust; and if there be any other commandment, it is summed up in this word, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
- Love works no ill to its neighbour; love therefore [is the] whole law.
- This also, knowing the time, that it is already time that *we* should be aroused out of sleep; for now [is] our salvation nearer than when we believed.
- The night is far spent, and the day is near; let us cast away therefore the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
- As in the day, let us walk becomingly; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and lasciviousness, not in strife and emulation.
- But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not take forethought for the flesh to [fulfil its] lusts.
- Now him that is weak in the faith receive, not to [the] determining of questions of reasoning.
- One man is assured that he may eat all things; but the weak eats herbs.
- Let not him that eats make little of him that eats not; and let not him that eats not judge him that eats: for God has received him.
- Who art *thou* that judgest the servant of another? to his own master he stands or falls. And he shall be made to stand; for the Lord is able to make him stand.
- One man esteems day more than day; another esteems every day [alike]. Let each be fully persuaded in his own mind.
- He that regards the day, regards it to [the] Lord. And he that eats, eats to [the] Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he that does not eat, [it is] to [the] Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks.
- For none of us lives to himself, and none dies to himself.
- For both if we should live, [it is] to the Lord we live; and if we should die, [it is] to the Lord we die: both if we should live then, and if we should die, we are the Lord's.
- For to this [end] Christ has died and lived [again], that he might rule over both dead and living.
- But thou, why judgest thou thy brother? or again, thou, why dost thou make little of thy brother? for we shall all be placed before the judgment-seat of God.
- For it is written, *I* live, saith [the] Lord, that to me shall bow every knee, and every tongue shall confess to God.
- So then each of us shall give an account concerning himself to God.
- Let us no longer therefore judge one another; but judge ye this rather, not to put a stumbling-block or a fall-trap before his brother.
- I know, and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean of itself; except to him who reckons anything to be unclean, to that man [it is] unclean.
- For if on account of meat thy brother is grieved, thou walkest no longer according to love. Destroy not him with thy meat for whom Christ has died.
- Let not then your good be evil spoken of;
- for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in [the] Holy Spirit.
- For he that in this serves the Christ [is] acceptable to God and approved of men.
- So then let us pursue the things which tend to peace, and things whereby one shall build up another.
- For the sake of meat do not destroy the work of God. All things indeed [are] pure; but [it is] evil to that man who eats while stumbling [in doing so].
- [It is] right not to eat meat, nor drink wine, nor [do anything] in which thy brother stumbles, or is offended, or is weak.
- Hast *thou* faith? have [it] to thyself before God. Blessed [is] he who does not judge himself in what he allows.
- But he that doubts, if he eat, is condemned; because [it is] not of faith; but whatever [is] not of faith is sin.
