13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; 14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. 15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: 16 As free, and not using  your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. 17 Honour all  men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.
The Example of Christ's Suffering
18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.
2:16 using: Gr. having
2:17 Honour all: or, Esteem all
