“Exhort seruants to be obedient vnto their own masters, and to please them well in all things, not answering againe:”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
2:9 Please them in all things - Wherein it can be done without sin. Not answering again - Though blamed unjustly. This honest servants are most apt to do. Not stealing - Not taking or giving any thing without their master's leave: this fair - spoken servants are apt to do.
Tit 2:9 Servants. Slaves. See notes on Eph 6:5-8. Many of the first converts were servants.
