- Let euery soule be subiect vnto the hyer powers: For there is no power but of god.
The powers that be, are ordeyned of God.
- Whosoeuer therfore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinaunce of God: And they that resist, shall receaue to the selues dampnation.
- For rulers are not fearefull to good workes, but to the euyll.
Wylt thou not feare the power?
Do well, and thou shalt haue prayse of the same.
- For he is the minister of God for thy wealth.
But yf thou do euyll, feare: For he beareth not the sworde in vayne, for he is the minister of God, reuenger of wrath on hym that doth euyll.
- Wherfore, ye must needes be subiect, not only for feare of punishment: but also because of conscience.
- And for this cause pay ye tribute.
For they are Gods ministers, seruyng for the same purpose.

- Charitie worketh no yll to his neyghbour, therfore the fulfyllyng of the lawe is charitie.)
- And chiefely consideryng the season, howe that it is tyme that we shoulde nowe awake out of slepe: For nowe is our saluation nearer, then when we beleued.
- The nyght is passed, the day is come nye.
Let vs therfore caste away the deedes of darknesse, & let vs put on the armour of lyght.
- Let vs walke honestly as in the day, not in riotyng & dronkennesse, neither in chaumberyng & wantonnesse, neither in strife and enuying.
- But put ye on ye Lorde Iesus Christe.
And make not prouision for the fleshe, to the lustes [therof.]
