Slaves and Masters

(A)Slaves,[a] obey your earthly masters[b] with fear and trembling, (B)with a sincere heart, (C)as you would Christ, not by the way of eye-service, as (D)people-pleasers, but as servants[c] of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to man, (E)knowing that whatever good anyone does, this he will receive back from the Lord, (F)whether he is a slave or free. Masters, do the same to them, (G)and stop your threatening, knowing that (H)he who is both their Master[d] and yours is in heaven, and that (I)there is no partiality with him.
