Pais e Filhos
Parents, make not your children angry, but make them to grow in the discipline and in the doctrine of our Lord.
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.
11 For what father (is there) among you who, if his son shall ask bread, will reach to him a stone? or should he ask a fish, how instead of a fish will he reach to him a serpent?
12 or if an egg he shall ask, will he a scorpion reach to him?
13 And if you, who are evil, know to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father from the heavens give the Spirit of Holiness to those who ask him!
For if a man hath not care of them who are his own, and especially of them who are children of the household of faith, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than those who believe not.
Fathers, exasperate not your children, that they be not discouraged.
Children, obey your parents in every thing, for so it is pleasing before our Lord.
Endure, therefore, correction, because Aloha acteth towards you as with children: for who is a son whom his father doth not correct?
And if there be a widow who hath children, or children's children, let them learn first to do justly for their families, and to repay the debts (owing) to their parents; for this is acceptable before Aloha.
