Bible: 1 Pet. 2:11-15
2:11 Dear friends, I urge you as foreigners and exiles to keep away from fleshly desires that do battle against the soul, 2:12 and maintain good conduct 1 among the non-Christians, 2 so that though 3 they now malign you as wrongdoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God when he appears. 4
Submission to Authorities
2:13 Be subject to every human institution 5 for the Lord’s sake, whether to a king as supreme 2:14 or to governors as those he commissions 6 to punish wrongdoers and praise 7 those who do good. 2:15 For God wants you 8 to silence the ignorance of foolish people by doing good.
