6 1 He showeth the duties of children, 5 servants, 9 and masters: 10 Then he speaketh of the fierce battle that the faithful have, 12 and what weapons we must use in the same: 21 In the end he commendeth Tychicus.
1 Children, [a]obey your parents [b]in the [c]Lord: [d]for this is right.
Ephesians 6:1He cometh to another part of a family, and showeth that the duty of the children toward their parents, consisteth in obedience unto them.
Ephesians 6:1The first argument: because God hath so appointed: whereupon it followeth also, that children are so far forth bound to obey their parents, as they may not swerve from the true worship of God.
Ephesians 6:1For the Lord is author of all fatherhood, and therefore we must yield such obedience as he will have us.
Ephesians 6:1The second argument: because this obedience is most just.
