Honor Authority

13 (A)Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, 14 or to governors as sent [a]by him (B)for the punishment of evildoers and the (C)praise of those who do right. 15 For [b](D)such is the will of God that by doing right you may (E)silence the ignorance of foolish men. 16 Act as (F)free men, and [c]do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as (G)bondslaves of God.
