New Defender's Study Bible Notes

4:1 Master. “The word “Master” in this verse—referring both to human masters and our heavenly Master—is actually the Greek word kurios, normally rendered “Lord.” It is not the usual word for “master,” which is didaskalos, meaning “teacher.” This exhortation here suggests great responsibility, with eternal implications, on the part of both masters and servants—or, in modern terminology, of employers and employees.
