1 Timothy 6:1

1All who are under the yoke as
slave: The strong Greek word doulos cannot be accurately translated in English by "servant" or "bond servant"; the HCSB translates this word as "slave," not out of insensitivity to the legitimate concerns of modern English speakers, but out of a commitment to accurately convey the brutal reality of the Roman empire's inhumane institution as well as the ownership called for by Christ.
slaves must regard their own masters
Or owners
to be worthy of all respect, so that God’s name c and His teaching will not be blasphemed.
