    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:8

    sabiendo que el bien que cada uno hiciere, esto recibir del Seor, sea siervo o sea libre.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ephesians 6:8

    Verse 8. Whatsoever good thing any man doeth] Though your masters should
    fail to give you the due reward of your fidelity and labour, yet, as ye have done your work as unto the Lord, he will take care to give you the proper recompense.

    Whether he be bond] A slave, bought with money; Or free.] A person who has hired himself of his own free accord.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doth , &c.] According to the will of God, from right principles in his heart, and with a view to God's glory: the same shall he receive of the Lord ; that is, he shall receive the fruit and advantage of it, in a way of grace, whether [he be] bond or free ; a bondman or a free man, a master or a servant.

    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.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    8. Shall he receive (komisetai). See on
    1 Pet. i. 8; compare Colossians iii. 25.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:8 {Whatever good thing each one doeth} (hekastos ean ti poiesei agaqon). Literally, "each one if he do anything good." Condition of
    third class, undetermined, but with prospect. Note use here of agaqon rather than adikon (one doing wrong) in #Col 3:25. So it is a reward (komisetai) for good, not a penalty for wrong, though both are true, "whether he be bond or free" (eite doulos eite eleuqeros).
