ἑαυτοῖς κρίμα λήμψονται
will incur judgment.
οἱ γὰρ ἄρχοντες οὐκ εἰσὶν φόβος τῷ ἀγαθῷ ἔργῳ ἀλλὰ τῷ κακῷ
For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad.
θέλεις δὲ μὴ φοβεῖσθαι τὴν ἐξουσίαν
Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority?
τὸ ἀγαθὸν ποίει
Then do what is good,

But if you do wrong,
