For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing.
Pay your taxes, too, for these same reasons. For government workers need to be paid so they can keep on doing the work God intended them to do.
That's also why you pay taxes--so that an orderly way of life can be maintained.
For the same reason, make payment of taxes; because the authority is God’s servant, to take care of such things at all times.
For the same reason you also pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, busy with this very thing.
For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing.
