Then said Paul unto him, God shall smite thee, thou whited wall: for sittest thou to judge me after the law, and commandest me to be smitten contrary to the law?

Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
1 Peter 2:17

2 Peter 2:10

Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
