1 Timothy 6:2-4 Revised Geneva Translation (RGT)

And those who have believing masters, let them not despise them (because they are brothers). But instead serve them, because they are faithful and beloved and partakers of the benefit. Teach and encourage these things.

If anyone teaches otherwise - and does not consent to the wholesome words of our Lord Jesus Christ and to the doctrine according to godliness -

he is puffed up and knows nothing, but is obsessed with disputing and arguing over words; from which comes envy, strife, coarse language, evil suspicions,

1 Timothy 6:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

Those who have believing masters should not show them disrespect just because they are fellow believers. Instead, they should serve them even better because their masters are dear to them as fellow believers and are devoted to the welfare[a] of their slaves.

False Teachers and the Love of Money

These are the things you are to teach and insist on. If anyone teaches otherwise and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, they are conceited and understand nothing. They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions
