▼ 1) Gr Bondservants 2) Gr lords6 not in the way of eyeservice, as men-pleasers; but as ▼ servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the ▼ heart; ▼
▼ 1) Gr Bondservants 2) Gr soul7 with good will doing service, as unto the Lord, and not unto men: 8 knowing that whatsoever good thing each one doeth, the same shall he receive again from the Lord, whether he be bond or free. 9 And, ye ▼ masters, do the same things unto them, and forbear threatening: knowing that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no respect of persons with him. ▼
