Ephesians 6:1-3 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

Advice to Children and Parents

Children, obey your parents because you are Christians.[a] This is the right thing to do. “Honor your father and mother that everything may go well for you, and you may have a long life on earth.” This is an important commandment with a promise.[b]

Footnotes:

  1. Ephesians 6:1 Some manuscripts and translations omit “because you are Christians.”
  2. Ephesians 6:3 The first part of verse 2 (in Greek) has been placed at the end of verse 3 to express the complex Greek sentence structure more clearly in English.
