Ephesians 6

Children, obey your parents in our Lord; for this is right. And the first commandment with promise, is this: Honor thy father and thy mother; that it may be well with thee, and that thy life may be prolonged on the earth. And parents, anger not your children; but train them up in the discipline and doctrine of our Lord. Servants, be obedient to your masters after the flesh, with fear, and with trepidation, and with simplicity of heart, as unto the Messiah. Not in the sight of the eye, as if ye were pleasing men; but as the servants of the Messiah, who are doing the will of God. And serve them with your whole heart, in love, as if serving our Lord and not men; knowing that whatever good thing a man may do, the same will be recompensed to him by our Lord, whether he be a servant or a free man. Also ye masters, do ye so to your servants. Forgive them a fault; because ye know, that ye have a master in heaven; and there is no respect of persons with him. 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in our Lord, and; in the energy of his power: 11 And put ye on; the whole armor of God, so that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the Accuser. 12 For our conflict is not with flesh and blood, but with principalities, and with those in authority, and with the possessors of this dark world, and with the evil spirits that are beneath heaven. 13 Therefore put ye on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to meet the evil one; and, being in all respects prepared, may stand firm. 14 Stand up therefore, and gird your loins with truth; and put on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 and defend your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace. 16 And herewith take to you the confidence of faith, by which ye will have power to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one. 17 And put on the helmet of rescue; and take hold of the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray ye, with all prayers and supplications, in spirit, at all times: and in prayer be watchful, at all seasons, praying constantly, and interceding for all the saints: 19 and also for me; that language may be given me, in the opening of my mouth; so that I may boldly proclaim the mystery of the gospel, 20 of which I am a messenger in chains; that I may utter it boldly, as I ought to utter it. 21 And that ye also may know my affairs, and what I am doing, lo, Tychicus, a beloved brother, and a faithful minister in our Lord, will acquaint you; 22 whom I have sent to you for this purpose, that ye might know what is going on with me, and that your hearts may be comforted. 23 Peace be with the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus the Messiah. 24 Grace be with all them who love our Lord Jesus the Messiah without corruptness. Amen.
