Romans 13:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Obedience to Authority.[a] 1 Let every person be subordinate to the higher authorities, for there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been established by God. 2 Therefore, whoever resists authority opposes what God has appointed, and those who oppose it will bring judgment upon themselves.
Romans 13:6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
6 This is why you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, devoting themselves to this very thing.
