And let 1the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called 2in one body. And 3be thankful.
Let 4the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, 5singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, 6with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
And 7whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, 8giving thanks to God the Father through him.
189Wives, submit to your husbands, as 10is fitting in the Lord.
Husbands, love your wives, and 11do not be harsh with them.
Children, obey your parents 12in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
Slaves,a obey 13in everything those who are your earthly masters,b not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord.
2314Whatever you do, work heartily, 15as for the Lord and not for men,
knowing that from the Lord 16you will receive the inheritance as your reward. 17You are serving the Lord Christ.
For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong he has done, and there is no partiality.
