21 Were you called while a slave? Do not be concerned about it; but if you can be made free, rather use it. 22 For he who is called in the Lord while a slave is rthe Lord’s freedman. Likewise he who is called while free is sChrist’s slave. 23 tYou were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. 24 Brethren, let each one remain with uGod in that state in which he was called.
