1 Peter 2:13-17Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

13 Submit to every human authority[a] because of the Lord, whether to the Emperor[b] as the supreme authority 14 or to governors as those sent out by him to punish those who do what is evil and to praise those who do what is good. 15 For it is God’s will that you silence the ignorance of foolish people by doing good. 16 As God’s slaves, live as free people, but don’t use your freedom as a way to conceal evil. 17 Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the Emperor.[c]
