You must be reading from a different version.<quoted text>There is a lot here so piece by piece.
First, if you are going to quote scripture, quote the whole thing.
My bible says resists not rebel.
Second, It says in Romans 13 render to all men what is their due, tribute to whom tribute is due, taxes to whom taxes are due, fear to whom fear is due honor to whom honor is due.
Basically living as Jews in a pagan country means following their rules without resistance or you are going to find yourself at the end of the sword.
In Daniel chapter 3, Daniels three friends were commanded to bow down before an image of gold. They refused, and rightly so, for they could not serve God and bow down to an idol. But the way in which they declined to do so demonstrated a submissive spirit. They did not refuse to obey all of the kings commands, only this one. They knew that disobedience might cost them their lives, and they were willing to pay this price. They did not advocate the overthrow of this government, and they were willing to submit to the death penalty if necessary. The same is seen in Daniel chapter 6, where Daniel will not cease praying to his God. Daniel refuses to comply with a specific law, and even the king agrees with him and hopes for his rescue.
God also says not to follow rules that are knowing wrong even at the risk of your life.
