1Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, 2with a sincere heart, 3as you would Christ,
not by the way of eye-service, as 4people-pleasers, but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart,
rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to man,
5knowing that whatever good anyone does, this he will receive back from the Lord, 6whether he is a slave or free.
Masters, do the same to them, 7and stop your threatening, knowing that 8he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and that 9there is no partiality with him.
