Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil works. Do you want to be unafraid of the authorities? Do that which is good, and you will have their praise;

 4 For he is the minister of God to you for good. But if you do that which is evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon those who do evil.
