    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:7

    sirviendo con buena voluntad, como al Seor, y no a los hombres;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ephesians 6:7

    Verse 7. With good will] met eunoiav? With cheerfulness; do not take up your
    service as a cross, or bear it as a burden; but take it as coming in the order of God's providence, and a thing that is pleasing to him.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. With good will doing
    service , &c.] To their masters; not grudgingly, with an ill will; no otherwise, nor longer than when they are forced to it; but of a ready mind, and with a cheerful spirit, taking delight in their work, and reckoning it a pleasure to serve their masters; as an Israelite that is not sold, who does his work wnwxrb , with his good will, and according to his own mind f73 ; doing what they do as to the Lord, and not to men ; not merely because it is the will of men, and they are commanded by them, and in order to please them, but because it is the will of the Lord, and is wellpleasing in his sight.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 5-9 - The
    duty of servants is summed up in one word, obedience. The servant of old were generally slaves. The apostles were to teach servants an masters their duties, in doing which evils would be lessened, til slavery should be rooted out by the influence of Christianity. Servant are to reverence those over them. They are to be sincere; no pretending obedience when they mean to disobey, but serving faithfully And they must serve their masters not only when their master's eye is upon them; but must be strict in the discharge of their duty, when he is absent and out of the way. Steady regard to the Lord Jesus Chris will make men faithful and sincere in every station, not grudgingly of by constraint, but from a principle of love to the masters and their concerns. This makes service easy to them, pleasing to their masters and acceptable to the Lord Christ. God will reward even the meanes drudgery done from a sense of duty, and with a view to glorify him Here is the duty of masters. Act after the same manner. Be just to servants, as you expect they should be to you; show the like good-wil and concern for them, and be careful herein to approve yourselves to God. Be not tyrannical and overbearing. You have a Master to obey, an you and they are but fellow-servants in respect to Christ Jesus. I masters and servants would consider their duties to God, and the account they must shortly give to him, they would be more mindful of their duty to each other, and thus families would be more orderly an happy.

    7. With good-will. Bengel quotes Xenophon: "The
    slave that is a steward must have good-will if he is to on thy place adequately." Compare Col. iii. 23.
