Christian Standard Bible
Christ in Your Home
18 Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.(A) 19 Husbands,(B) love your wives(C) and don’t be bitter(D) toward them. 20 Children,(E) obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. 21 Fathers,(F) do not exasperate(G) your children, so that they won’t become discouraged. 22 Slaves, obey your human(H) masters in everything. Don’t work only while being watched, as people-pleasers, but work wholeheartedly, fearing the Lord.(I) 23 Whatever you do, do it from the heart, as something done for the Lord and not for people,(J) 24 knowing that you will receive the reward of an inheritance from the Lord. You serve the Lord Christ. 25 For the wrongdoer(K) will be paid back for whatever wrong he has done, and there is no favoritism.
4 Masters,(L) deal with your slaves justly and fairly, since you know that you too have a Master in heaven.
