1 Children, obey your parents in our Lord, for this is right; and this is the first commandment which promiseth.
2 Honour thy father and thy mother,
3 that it may be well with thee, and thy life be prolonged upon the earth.
4 Parents, make not your children angry, but make them to grow in the discipline and in the doctrine of our Lord.
5 Servants, be subject to your masters who are according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, and with simplicity of heart, as unto the Meshiha:
6 not in the sight of the eyes, as if you were pleasing men (only), but as the servants of Meshiha who do the will of Aloha.
7 And serve them from all your soul, in love, as unto our Lord, and not as unto men;
8 knowing that whatever good a man doeth he is rewarded by our Lord, whether he be a servant or a son of freedom.
9 So you, masters, do likewise to your servants; forgiving them a fault; for you know also that your Master is in heaven, and there is no respect of persons with him.
10 HENCEFORTH, my brethren, be strong in our Lord, and in the power of his strength.
11 And clothe you in all the armour of Aloha, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the accuser.
12 For your wrestling is not with flesh and blood (only), but with princes, and with powers, and with the possessors of this dark world, and with the evil spirits who are under heaven.
13 Wherefore clothe you with all the armour of Aloha, that you may be able to meet the evil one, and being prepared in every thing you may stand.
14 Stand, therefore, with your loins strengthened with the truth, and wear the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and let your feet be shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 and with these take to you the shield of faith, that therewith you may be empowered with strength to extinguish all the burning shafts of that evil one;
17 and put on the helmet of salvation, and take the sword of the Spirit which is the word of Aloha.
18 And with all prayers, and with all supplications, pray at all times in the Spirit, and in that prayer be watchful in all seasons,
19 praying constantly and invoking on behalf of all the saints; and for me also, that the word may be given me with openness of my mouth, that I may boldly proclaim the mystery of the gospel,
20 for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may speak with freedom, as it behoveth me to speak it.
21 But that you may know also what relateth to me, and what I am doing, behold, Tykikos, a brother beloved, and a faithful minister of our Lord, will make known to you;
22 whom I have sent to you on account of this, that he may make you acquainted with what relateth to me, and may comfort your hearts.
23 Peace be with the brethren, and love with faith from Aloha our Father, and from our Lord Jeshu Meshiha.
24 Grace be with all them who love our Lord Jeshu Meshiha incorruptibly. Amen.
