Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for his wrong, and there is no favouritism.
For he who does wrong will receive the consequences of the wrong which he has done, and that without partiality.
But if you do what is wrong, you will be paid back for the wrong you have done. For God has no favorites who can get away with evil.
The sullen servant who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being Christian doesn't cover up bad work.
For the wrongdoer will have punishment for the wrong he has done, without respect for any man’s position.
For the wrongdoer will be paid back for whatever wrong has been done, and there is no partiality.
But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality.

1 tn Grk “that which he did wrong.”
sn It is a common theme in biblical thought that punishment for sin involves being fully given over to its consequences (cf. Rom 1), and this is also true of believers. Here Paul’s implication is that believers who sin and disobey the Lord whom they serve will receive the consequences of their actions, which is a fitting discipline.
2 tn The Greek word used here is προσωπολημψία (proswpolhmyia) and is usually translated “partiality.” It is used to describe unjust or unrighteous favoritism (Rom 2:11, Eph 6:9, Jas 2:1). When it comes to disciplining his children for their sins, God will treat all equally with no partiality.
