New International Version
Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.
King James Bible
But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
Darby Bible Translation
For he that does a wrong shall receive the wrong he has done, and there is no respect of persons.
World English Bible
But he who does wrong will receive again for the wrong that he has done, and there is no partiality.
Young's Literal Translation
and he who is doing unrighteously shall receive what he did unrighteously, and there is no acceptance of persons.
Colossians 3:25 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
But he that doeth wrong - It is possible for an unfaithful servant to wrong and defraud his master in a great variety of ways without being detected; but let all such remember what is here said: He that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he has done; God sees him, and will punish him for his breach of honesty and trust. Wasting, or not taking proper care of the goods of your master, is such a wrong as God will resent. He that is unfaithful in that which is little, will be unfaithful in much, if he have opportunity; and God alone is the defense against an unfaithful servant.
There is no respect - God neither esteems nor despises any man because of his outward condition and circumstances; for there is no respect of persons with him. Every man is, in the eye of God, what he is in his soul: if holy, loved; if wicked, despised and rejected.

Cups Running Over
For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes.
who shows no partiality to princes and does not favor the rich over the poor, for they are all the work of his hands?
For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.
Then Peter began to speak: "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism
because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free.
And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him.
2 Thessalonians 1:6
God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you
