18 h Wives, submit to your own husbands, i as is fitting in the Lord. 19 j Husbands, love your wives and do not be k bitter toward them. 20 l Children, obey your parents m in all things, for this is well pleasing to the Lord. 21 n Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged. 22 o Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God. 23 p And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, 24 q knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; r for 1 you serve the Lord Christ. 25 But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and s there is no partiality.
1 Masters, a give your bondservants what is just and fair, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
