The same shall he receive of the Lord; that is, though his master might be unjust or oppressive, his fidelity should not ultimately lose its reward.

Verse 9

Do the same things unto them; that is, be honest and upright in all your dealings with them.-- Forbearing threatening; and of course forbearing coercion and violence.
