The servants! obey the masters according to the flesh with fear and trembling, in the simplicity of your heart, as to the Christ;
not with eye-service as men-pleasers, but as servants of the Christ, doing the will of God out of soul,
with good-will serving, as to the Lord, and not to men,
having known that whatever good thing each one may do, this he shall receive from the Lord, whether servant or freeman.
And the masters! the same things do ye unto them, letting threatening alone, having known that also your Master is in the heavens, and acceptance of persons is not with him.
As to the rest, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might;
put on the whole armour of God, for your being able to stand against the wiles of the devil,
because we have not the wrestling with blood and flesh, but with the principalities, with the authorities, with the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, with the spiritual things of the evil in the heavenly places;
because of this take ye up the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to resist in the day of the evil, and all things having done -- to stand.
Stand, therefore, having your loins girt about in truth, and having put on the breastplate of the righteousness,
and having the feet shod in the preparation of the good-news of the peace;
