Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. "Honor your father and mother," which is the first commandment with promise: "that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth." And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
