v Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, w with a sincere heart, x as you would Christ,
not by the way of eye-service, as y people-pleasers, but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart,
rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to man,
z knowing that whatever good anyone does, this he will receive back from the Lord, a whether he is a slave or free.

1 Peter 2:18
Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the unjust.
2 Corinthians 11:3
But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.
And that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love. For you will render to a man according to his work.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.
