Obey 1 with enthusiasm, as though serving the Lord 2 and not people,
Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men,
With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men,
Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.
And work with a smile on your face, always keeping in mind that no matter who happens to be giving the orders, you're really serving God.
Doing your work readily, as to the Lord, and not to men:
Render service with enthusiasm, as to the Lord and not to men and women,
with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men,
as to the Lord
