6 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

5Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, single-mindedly, as serving Christ.Slaves and Masters Eph.6.5-9Οἱ δοῦλοι, ὑπακούετε τοῖς κατὰ σάρκα κυρίοις μετὰ φόβου καὶ τρόμου ἐν ἀπλότητι τῆς καρδίας ὑμῶν ὡς τῷ Χριστῷ,
6Do not offer merely the outward show of service, to curry favour with men, but, as slaves of Christ, do whole-heartedly the will of God. μὴ κατ' ὀφθαλμοδουλίαν ὡς ἄνθρωπάρεσκοι ἀλλ' ὡς δοῦλοι Χριστοῦ ποιοῦντες τὸ θέλημα τοῦ θεοῦ ἐκ ψυχῆς,
7Give the cheerful service of those who serve the Lord, not men. μετ' εὐνοίας δουλεύοντες, ὡς τῷ κυρίῳ καὶ οὐκ ἀνθρώποις,
8For you know that whatever good each man may do, slave or free, will be repaid him by the Lord.
 εἰδότες ὅτι ἑκαστος, ἐάν τι ποιήσῃ ἀγαθόν, τοῦτο κομίσεται παρὰ κυρίου, εἰτε δοῦλος εἰτε ἐλεύθερος.
9You masters, also, must do the same by them. Give up using threats; remember you both have the same Master in heaven, and he has no favourites.
 Καὶ οἱ κύριοι, τὰ αὐτὰ ποιεῖτε πρὸς αὐτούς, ἀνιέντες τὴν ἀπειλήν, εἰδότες ὅτι καὶ αὐτῶν καὶ ὑμῶν ὁ κύριός ἐστιν ἐν οὐρανοῖς, καὶ προσωπολημψία οὐκ ἐστιν παρ' αὐτῷ.
