Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
5 Slaves, be obedient to those who are your earthly masters, with fear and trembling, in singleness of heart, as to Christ; 5 Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ.
6 not in the way of eye-service, as men-pleasers, but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, 6 Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but like slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart.
7 rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to men, 7 Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men,
8 knowing that whatever good any one does, he will receive the same again from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free. 8 because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does, whether he is slave or free.
9 Masters, do the same to them, and forbear threatening, knowing that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and that there is no partiality with him. 9 And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him.
