Ephesians 6

1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.

2 Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment in a promise,

3 in order that it might come to be well with you and you will be long-time upon the earth.

4 And fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but nourish them in discipline and admonition of the Lord.

5 Bondservants, obey to the lords according to the flesh with fear and trembling, in sincerity of your heart, as to the Christ.

6 Not according to eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God out from the soul,

7 with a good mind, slaving as to the Lord, and not to men.

8 Knowing that if each certain one might do a good thing, then this he will receive from the Lord, whether a bondservant or free.

9 And the lords, do the same things toward them, giving up the threat, knowing that also, yours and theirs is the Lord in the heavens, and partiality is not with Him.

10 Of the remainder, be strengthened in the Lord and in the might of His force.

11 Put on for yourselves the full armor of God, toward the result for you to be able to stand toward the craftiness of the devil.

12 Because with us the struggle is not toward blood and flesh, but toward the rulers, toward the authorities, toward the world-powers of this darkness, toward the spirits of the wickedness in the heavenlies.

13 On account of this, take up the full armor of God, in order that you might be able to stand-against in the evil day, and having worked-down all things, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your loin in truth, and having put on for yourselves the breastplate of the state-of-justification,

15 and having bound-under for yourselves the feet in readiness of the gospel of peace,

16 in all things, having taken up the shield of the faith, in which you will be able to quench all the arrows of the evil one, [[the ones]] set on fire;

17 and receive for yourselves the helmet of the One bringing salvation, and the sword of the Spirit which is a saying of God;

18 through every prayer and petition, praying in every time in spirit, and into it being alert in every perseverance and petition concerning all the holy ones,

19 and on behalf of me, in order that I might be given a word in opening my mouth in boldness, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

20 on behalf of which I am an elder in chain, in order that in it I might speak boldly, as it is necessary for me to speak.

21 And in order that you might also know the things according to me, what thing I practice, Tychicus, the beloved brother and faithful servant in the Lord, will make all things known to you.

22 Whom I sent toward you into this very thing, in order that you might know the things concerning us and he might exhort your hearts.

23 Peace to the brethren and love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

24 The grace be with all the ones loving our Lord Jesus Christ in incorruption.
