Romans 13:6-7

For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing.

Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.

tribute — taxes, especially personal and property taxes

ministers (verse 6) — servants discharging functions that are part of God’s plan.

custom — indirect tax on goods (imports and exports)

fear — respect for the position
