Bible Verses about Parents, Representing God
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.
"And he who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death.
"And he who strikes his father or his mother shall surely be put to death.
"Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them: "You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy. "Every one of you shall revere his mother and his father, and keep My Sabbaths: I am the LORD your God. "Do not turn to idols, nor make for yourselves molded gods: I am the LORD your God.
"Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you.
Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
'Cursed is the one who treats his father or his mother with contempt.' 'And all the people shall say, 'Amen!'
Whoever curses his father or his mother,
His lamp will be put out in deep darkness.
The eye that mocks his father,
And scorns obedience to his mother,
The ravens of the valley will pick it out,
And the young eagles will eat it.
For God commanded, saying, 'Honor your father and your mother'; and, 'He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.' But you say, 'Whoever says to his father or mother, 'Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God" then he need not honor his father or mother.' Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition.
