1 aChildren, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.

2 aHonor your father and mother (which is the first commandment with a promise),

3 so that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth.

4 aFathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bbring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

5 aSlaves, be obedient to those who are your 1masters according to the flesh, with bfear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, cas to Christ;

6 anot 1by way of eyeservice, as bmen-pleasers, but as cslaves of Christ, ddoing the will of God from the 2heart.

7 With good will 1render service, aas to the Lord, and not to men,

8 aknowing that bwhatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord, cwhether slave or free.

9 And masters, do the same things to them, and agive up threatening, knowing that bboth their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is cno partiality with Him.
