Young's Literal Translation

Romans 13

Subjection, and many other duties, we owe to the magistrates.

Romans 13:1 Let every soul to the higher authorities be subject, for there is no authority except from God, and the authorities existing are appointed by God, Romans 13:2 so that he who is setting himself against the authority, against God's ordinance hath resisted; and those resisting, to themselves shall receive judgment. Romans 13:3 For those ruling are not a terror to the good works, but to the evil; and dost thou wish not to be afraid of the authority? that which is good be doing, and thou shalt have praise from it, Romans 13:4 for of God it is a ministrant to thee for good; and if that which is evil thou mayest do, be fearing, for not in vain doth it bear the sword; for of God it is a ministrant, an avenger for wrath to him who is doing that which is evil. Romans 13:5 Wherefore it is necessary to be subject, not only because of the wrath, but also because of the conscience, Romans 13:6 for because of this also pay ye tribute; for servants of God they are, on this very thing attending continually; Romans 13:7 render, therefore, to all [their] dues; to whom tribute, the tribute; to whom custom, the custom; to whom fear, the fear; to whom honour, the honour.

Love is the fulfilling of the Law.

Romans 13:8 To no one owe anything, except to love one another; for he who is loving the other—law he hath fulfilled, Romans 13:9 for, 'Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false testimony, Thou shalt not covet;' and if there is any other command, in this word it is summed up, in this: 'Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself;' Romans 13:10 the love to the neighbour doth work no ill; the love, therefore, [is] the fulness of law.

Gluttony and drunkenness, and the works of darkness, are out of season in the time of the Gospel.

Romans 13:11 And this, knowing the time, that for us, the hour already [is] to be aroused out of sleep, for now nearer [is] our salvation than when we did believe; Romans 13:12 the night did advance, and the day came nigh; let us lay aside, therefore, the works of the darkness, and let us put on the armour of the light; Romans 13:13 as in day-time, let us walk becomingly; not in revellings and drunkennesses, not in chamberings and lasciviousnesses, not in strife and emulation; Romans 13:14 but put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and for the flesh take no forethought—for desires.
