v1 All slaves should always *respect their own masters properly. So then, other people will not say bad things about Godís name. Neither will they say bad things about what believers teach. v2 Some slaves have masters who believe Christ. So, as believers, their masters are like their brothers. But those slaves must not refuse to obey their masters properly because of that. Instead, those slaves should work even better for them because their masters believe Christ. And the slaves should work better because they love their masters. Those slaves can help their masters if they work well for them.
Teach these things and ask the believers very strongly to obey them.
