Let all who are under the yoke of slavery regard their masters as worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and the teaching may not be blasphemed.
Those who have believing masters must not be disrespectful to them on the ground that they are members of the church; a rather they must serve them all the more, since those who benefit by their service are believers and beloved. b Teach and urge these duties.
