22 (A)Slaves, in all things obey those who are your masters [a]on earth, (B)not with [b]external service, as those who merely please men, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. 23 Whatever you do, do your work [c]heartily, (C)as for the Lord [d]rather than for men, 24 (D)knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward [e]of (E)the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you (F)serve. 25 For (G)he who does wrong will receive the consequences of the wrong which he has done, and [f](H)that without partiality.
