Ephesians 6:1-8 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

Children and Parents

1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.1 2 "Honor your father and mother"--which is the first commandment with a promise-- 3 "that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth."a2 4 Fathers, do not exasperate your children;3 instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.4

Slaves and Masters

5 Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect5 and fear, and with sincerity of heart,6 just as you would obey Christ.7 6 Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but like slaves of Christ,8 doing the will of God from your heart. 7 Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men,9 8 because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does,10 whether he is slave or free.
