CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Honour all men - That is, Give honor to whom honor is due, Romans 13:7. Respect every man as a fellow creature, and as one who may be a fellow heir with you of eternal life; and therefore be ready to give him every kind of succor in your power.
Love the brotherhood - All true Christians, who form one great family of which God is the head.
Fear God - Who gives you these commandments, lest he punish you for disobedience.
Honour the king - Pay that respect to the emperor which his high authority requires, knowing that civil power is of God; that the authority with which he, in the course of his providence, has invested him, must be respected in order to its being obeyed; and that if the man be even bad, and as a man be worthy of no reverence, yet he should be respected on account of his office. If respect be banished, subordination will flee with it, and anarchy and ruin will rise up in their place. Truly religious persons are never found in seditions. Hypocrites may join themselves with any class of the workers of iniquity, and say, Hail, brethren!

Fear the LORD and the king, my son, and do not join with rebellious officials,
"Caesar's," they replied. Then he said to them, "So give back to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's."
Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
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.
1 Peter 1:22
Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.
1 Peter 2:13
Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority,
