1 Now it came to pass in those days, there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be enrolled.

2 This was the first enrollment made when Quirinius was governor of Syria.

3 And all went to enroll themselves, each to his own city.

4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David;

5 to enroll himself with Mary, his wife, being pregnant.

Lucas 2:1-5

Pilate therefore says to him, Don't you speak to me? Don't you know that I have power to release you, and have power to crucify you?

Jesus answered him, You would have no power against me, except it were given you from above: therefore he who delivered me to you has greater sin.

João 19:10,11

for a great and effectual door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.

1 Coríntios 16:9

Mateus 5:25,26

12 having your{+} behavior seemly among the Gentiles; that, in what they speak against you{+} as evildoers, they may by your{+} good works, which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation.

13 Be subject to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether to the king, as supreme;

14 or to governors, as sent by him for vengeance on evildoers and for praise to those who do well.

1 Pedro 2:12-14

And having commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass, having taken the five loaves and the two fish, [and] having looked up to heaven, he blessed. And having broken the loaves, he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples [gave] to the multitudes.

And they all ate, and were filled: and they took up that which remained over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full.

Mateus 10:18,19

Look, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are accounted as the small dust of the balance: Look, he takes up the isles as a very little thing.

All the nations are as nothing before him; they are accounted by him as less than nothing, and vanity.

Isaías 40:15,17

1 Let every soul be in subjection to the higher powers: for there is no power but of God; and the [powers] that be are appointed of God.

2 Therefore he who resists the power, withstands the ordinance of God: and those who withstand will receive to themselves judgment.

3 For rulers are not a terror to the good work, but to the evil. And do you want to not fear the power? Do that which is good, and you will have praise from the same:

4 for he is a servant of God to you for good. But if you do that which is evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword for nothing: for he is a servant of God, an avenger for wrath to him who participates in evil.

5 Therefore [you{+}] must surely be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also because of conscience.

6 For this cause you{+} pay taxes also; for they are ministers of God's service, attending continually on this very thing.

7 Render to all their dues: tax to whom tax [is due]; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor.

Romanos 13:1-7

Owe no man anything, except to love one another: for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.

Romanos 13:8

17 Truly I say to you{+}, Whoever will say to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea; and will not doubt in his heart, but will believe that what he says comes to pass; he will have it.

18 Therefore I say to you{+}, All things that you{+} pray and ask for, believe that you{+} receive them, and you{+} will have them.

19 And when he came into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came to him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority do you do these things? And who gave you this authority?

20 And Jesus answered and said to them, I also will ask you{+} one question, which if you{+} tell me, I likewise will tell you{+} by what authority I do these things.

21 The baptism of John, from where was it? From heaven or from men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we will say, From heaven; he will say to us, Why then did you{+} not believe him?

Mateus 22:17-21

24 And they could not answer again to these things.

25 And he spoke a parable to those who were invited, when he marked how they chose out the chief seats; saying to them,

26 When you are invited of any man to a marriage feast, don't sit down in the chief seat; lest perhaps a more honorable man than you be invited of him,

27 and he who invited you and him will come and say to you, Give this man place; and then you will begin with shame to take the lowest place.

Mateus 17:24-27
