What Does the Bible Verse Slaves Obey Your Masters Really Mean

What Does the Bible Verse Slaves Obey Your Masters Mean

Slaves obey your masters in the bible is misleading if you do not read further into the bible verse. Read Colossians 3:25, Colossians 4:1 and understand the translated word slave is incorrect.



Read your bible

Paul the Apostle also known as Saint Paul and Saul of Tarsus was devoted to bullying and torturing the early followers of Jesus in and around Jerusalem.


Thirteen of the twenty-seven books in the New Testament have traditionally been attributed to Paul but Colossians is believed written by Paul's followers, not Paul himself. It is widely believed that Paul's letter to the Colossians was written in 62 A.D., during Paul's imprisonment in Rome. Colossians is a letter written by Paul the Apostle to the Christians of Colossae an ancient city of Phrygia in Asia Minor.


Paul's’ use of the word slaves in modern translated bibles is translated improperly; the word bondservant or indentured servant is more accurate. Bondservant is a person bound in service without wages for a certain amount of time either voluntary or to pay a debt.


What Does the Bible Verse Slaves Obey Your Masters Really Mean

Read your bible

Colossians 3: 22-25

22 Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord.

23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,

24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

25 Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.


Note in Colossians 3:25 Paul says, “Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.”


In Colossians 4:1-6, Paul echoes the identical expectation for masters as to slaves. Paul reminds masters that they also have a Master in heaven and will be judged accordingly.


Colossians 4: 1-2

Masters, provide your slaves with what is right and fair, because you know that you also have a Master in heaven.

2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
