Tell us then, what is your opinion?
Is it right to pay the imperial tax [a] to Caesar or not?
 But Jesus, knowing their evil intent,
said, You hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me?
 Show me the coin used for paying the tax.
They brought him a denarius,
 and he asked them,
Whose image is this? And whose inscription?
 Caesarís, they replied.
Then he said to them, So give back
to Caesar what is Caesarís,
and to God what is Godís.
Romans 13:6-7 (NIV)
 This is also why you pay taxes,
for the authorities are Godís servants,
who give their full time to governing.
 Give to everyone what you owe them:
If you owe taxes, pay taxes;
if revenue, then revenue;
if respect, then respect;
if honor, then honor.
