Pais e Filhos
And you, fathers, do not irritate your children, but bring them up in the education and admonition of the Lord.
1 CHILDREN, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
2 "Honor your father and your mother." This is the first commandment with a promise,
3 "That it may go well with you and you may be long-lived in the land."
11 What father is there among you who if his son asks for bread will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead?
12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he give him a scorpion?
13 If then you, evil though you are, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Heavenly Father give a holy spirit to those who ask him."
If any one does not provide for his own, and especially those of his own household, he has disowned the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
Fathers, do not irritate your children, for they may lose heart.
Children, obey your parents in everything, for this is pleasing in the Lord.
It is for discipline that you are enduring. God is laying it upon you as upon sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline?
If any widow has children or grandchildren, let them learn first to act piously toward their own family and to repay what they owe to their parents and grandparents. For this is pleasing in the sight of God.
