Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience. ...

That God is unrighteous to inflict wrath on us? (I speak in a human way.) ...
