    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:23

    y todo lo que hagis, hacedlo de buen nimo, como al Seor, y no a los hombres;

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 23. And whatsoever ye do , etc.] Some have thought that these
    words, and the two following verses, regard the Colossians in general, and the performance of any, and all good works by them; but by their connection with the preceding verse, and with the beginning of the next chapter, they appear to concern servants only, and what they do under that character, and under the discharge of their duty: do it heartily , not by mere force and necessity, grudgingly, and with murmurings, but from the heart, and with good will, having a true, real, and hearty affection for their masters, having their good and interest at heart, and a delight in their service; like the Hebrew servant, that loved his master, as also his wife and children, and therefore would not depart from him, (see Exodus 21:5), as to the Lord, and not unto men ; (see Gill on Ephesians 6:7).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18-25 - The
    epistles most taken up in displaying the glory of the Divine grace and magnifying the Lord Jesus, are the most particular in pressing the duties of the Christian life. We must never separate the privileges an duties of the gospel. Submission is the duty of wives. But it is submission, not to a severe lord or stern tyrant, but to her ow husband, who is engaged to affectionate duty. And husbands must love their wives with tender and faithful affection. Dutiful children ar the most likely to prosper. And parents must be tender, as well a children obedient. Servants are to do their duty, and obey their masters' commands, in all things consistent with duty to God their heavenly Master. They must be both just and diligent; without selfis designs, or hypocrisy and disguise. Those who fear God, will be jus and faithful when from under their master's eye, because they know the are under the eye of God. And do all with diligence, not idly an slothfully; cheerfully, not discontented at the providence of God whic put them in that relation. And for servants' encouragement, let the know, that in serving their masters according to the command of Christ they serve Christ, and he will give them a glorious reward at last But, on the other hand, he who doeth wrong, shall receive for the wron which he hath done. God will punish the unjust, as well as reward the faithful servant; and the same if masters wrong their servants. For the righteous Judge of the earth will deal justly between master an servant. Both will stand upon a level at his tribunal. How happy woul true religion make the world, if it every where prevailed, influence every state of things, and every relation of life! But the professio of those persons who are regardless of duties, and give just cause for complaint to those they are connected with, deceives themselves, a well as brings reproach on the gospel __________________________________________________________________

    και
    2532 παν 3956 ο 3739 τι 5100 εαν 1437 ποιητε 4160 5725 εκ 1537 ψυχης 5590 εργαζεσθε 2038 5737 ως 5613 τω 3588 κυριω 2962 και 2532 ουκ 3756 ανθρωποις 444

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    23. Ye do - do it (poihte - ergazesqe). Rev., correctly, ye do -
    work; the latter being the stronger term as opposed to idleness. See on Jas. ii. 9. An idle man may do. Compare ejrgasia diligence, Luke xii. 58. Heartily (ek yuchv). Lit., from the soul. With a personal interest. Note that the apostle uses both heart (kardiav, ver. 22) and soul (yuchv); and in Eph. vi. 7, adds met' eujnoiav with good disposition (A.V., good will). See on Rom. xi. 3; vii. 23; i. 21. Compare sumyucoi of one accord, Philip. ii. 2; ijsoyucon like-minded, Philip. ii. 20; mia yuch with one mind, Philip. i. 27.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:23 {Whatever ye do} (ho ean poiete). See same idiom in #3:17 except ho instead of pan hoti. {Heartily} (ek yuces). From the
    soul and not with mere eye service. In #Eph 6:7 Paul adds met' eunoias (with good will) in explanation of ek yuces. {As unto the Lord} (hws twi kuriwi). Even when unto men. this is the highest test of worthwhile service. If it were only always true!
