Subjection, and many other duties, we owe to the magistrates.
Romans 13:1 Let every soule submit him selfe vnto the auctorite of ye hyer powers. For there is no power but of God. Romans 13:2 The powers that be are ordeyned of God. Whosoever therfore resysteth power resisteth the ordinaunce of God. And they that resist shall receave to the selfe damnacio. Romans 13:3 For rulars are not to be feared for good workes but for evyll Wilt thou be with out feare of the power? Do well then: and so shalt thou be praysed of the same. Romans 13:4 For he is the minister of God for thy welth. But and yf thou do evyll then feare: for he beareth not a swearde for nought: but is the minister of God to take vengeaunce on them that do evyll. Romans 13:5 Wherfore ye must nedes obeye not for feare of vengeaunce only: but also because of conscience. Romans 13:6 And even for this cause paye ye tribute. For they are goddes ministers servynge for the same purpose. Romans 13:7 Geve to every man therfore his duetie: Tribute to whom tribute belongeth: Custome to whom custome is due: feare to whom feare belongeth: Honoure to who honoure pertayneth
Love is the fulfilling of the Law.
Romans 13:8 Owe nothinge to eny man: but to love one another. For he that loveth another fulfylleth the lawe. Romans 13:9 For these commaundementes: Thou shalt not comit advoutry: Thou shalt not kyll: Thou shalt not steale: Thou shalt not beare false witnes: Thou shalt not desyre and so forth (yf there be eny other comaundement) they are all comprehended in this sayinge: Love thyne neghbour as thy selfe. Romans 13:10 Love hurteth not his neghbour. Therfore is love the fulfillynge of the lawe.
Gluttony and drunkenness, and the works of darkness, are out of season in the time of the Gospel.
Romans 13:11 This also we knowe I mean the season howe that it is tyme that we shuld now awake oute of slepe. For now is oure salvacion nearer then when we beleved. Romans 13:12 The nyght is passed and the daye is come nye. Let us therfore cast awaye the dedes of darcknes and let vs put on the (Armoure) of lyght. Romans 13:13 Let vs walke honestly as it were in the daye lyght: not in eatynge and drinkynge: nether in chamburynge and wantannes: nether in stryfe and envyinge: Romans 13:14 but put ye on the Lorde Iesus Christ. And make not provision for the flesshe to fulfyll ye lustes of it.
