THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

1 Peter (Author Peter)

2:13Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;

2:14Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.

2:15For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:

2:16As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.

2:17Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.
