6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 6:2 Honor thy father and mother (which is the first commandment with promise) 6:3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. 6:4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. 6:5 Servants, be obedient to them that are [your] masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as to Christ; 6:6 Not with eye-service, as men-pleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; 6:7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: 6:8 Knowing that whatever good thing any man doeth, the same will he receive from the Lord, whether [he be] bond or free. 6:9 And, ye masters, do the same things to them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him. 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 6:11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. 6:13 Wherefore take to you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breast-plate of righteousness; 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, with which ye will be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the wicked. 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching for this purpose with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 6:19 And for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 6:20 For which I am an embassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. 6:21 But that ye also may know my affairs, [and] how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, will make known to you all things: 6:22 Whom I have sent to you for the same purpose, that ye may know our affairs, and [that] he may comfort your hearts. 6:23 Peace [be] to the brethren, and love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 6:24 Grace [be] with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
