   This verse logically goes with the closing of chapter 3. Master should give their bondservants what is just & fair. They should not with hold from them proper wages, but should pay them well for the work they have done. This is addressed directly to Christian employers. God hates the oppression of the poor, & the gift of a man who has grown rich through unfair labor practices are unacceptable to the Lord. God says in effect: “you keep your money, I didn't like the way you made it” (Isaiah 5:1-4) Now let me sing to my Well beloved, A song of my beloved regarding His vineyard: My well beloved has a vineyard on a very fruitful hill. ** He dug it up & cleared out its stones, And planted it with the choicest vine, He built a tower in its midst. And also made a wine press in it; So he expected it to bring forth  good grapes, But it brought forth wild grapes. *** And now oh inhabitants of Jerusalem & men of Judah, Judge, please, between Me & My vineyard. **** What more could have been done to My vineyard, that I have not done in it? Why then, when I expected it to bring forth good grapes, did it bring forth wild grapes?

 

   Masters should not be high minded but should fear. They also have a Master in heaven. One who is just & righteous in all His ways.

 

   Before closing this section, it is interesting to notice here how the Apostle Paul repeatedly brings these matters of everyday life under the searchlight of the Lordship of Christ as follows: (1) Wives <> as in fitting  in the Lord (V:18). (2) Children <> Well pleasing to the Lord (V:20) (3) Servants <> Fearing the Lord(V:22) (4) Servants <> as  to the Lord(V:23)
