Ephesians 5:21-33

submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husband, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as the Christ is head of the congregation , and it is he who gives saving health to the body.read more.
Therefore, as the congregation is subject unto the Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives even as the Christ also loved the congregation and gave himself for her, that he might sanctify and cleanse her in the washing of water by the word, that he might present her glorious for himself, a congregation , not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. So ought husbands to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it even as the Lord with his congregation : For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and shall be joined unto his wife, and they shall be two in one flesh. This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the congregation . Nevertheless, let each one of you do likewise, let each one so love his wife even as himself, and let the wife see that she reverences her husband.

Ephesians 6:1-4

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honour thy father and mother (which is the first commandment with a promise), that it may be well with thee, and thou may live long on the earth.read more.
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath, but bring them up in the discipline and admonition of the Lord.
