Likewise urge the young men to be sensible.
Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in quarreling and jealousy.
Let no one look down on your youth, but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.
1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
2 »Honor your father and mother« (which is the first commandment with a promise),
3 »that it may be well with you and that you may live long on the earth.«
Likewise you that are younger men be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for »God opposes the proud,but gives grace to the humble.«
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.
I wrote to you, little children,because you have known the Father.I wrote to you, fathers,because you have known himwho is from the beginning.I wrote to you, young men,because you are strong,and the word of God abides in you,and you have overcome the evil one.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
