Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise, that it may be well with you, and you may live long upon the earth.


Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise, that it may be well with you, and you may live long upon the earth. read more.
And fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. Ye servants, obey those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in purity of your heart, as unto Christ; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers, but as the servants of Christ doing the will of God from the soul; serving with good will as the Lord, and not men: knowing that if each one may do good, he will receive this with the Lord, whether bond or free.

Likewise, ye wives, be submissive to your own husbands; in order that, if any do not believe the word, they shall be gained through the deportment of their wives, without the word; beholding your chaste deportment which is with reverence: whose beauty, let it not be the external beauty of braiding the hairs, and wearing golds, or putting on of outer garments; read more.
but let their beauty be the hidden man of the heart, in the purity of the meek and quiet spirit, which in the sight of God is perfection complete. For in this way in olden times the holy wives, the ones having hope toward God, were indeed accustomed to beautify themselves, submissive to their own husbands: as Sarah submitted to Abraham, calling him Lord: whose children you have become, doing good, and not fearing any calamity. Likewise, ye husbands, dwelling with the wife according to knowledge, as the weaker vessel, extending to them honor, as indeed the equal heirs of the grace of life; that your prayers should not be hindered.
