Ephesians 6
Haweis New Testament Par ▾ 

Children and Parents
(Colossians 3:18–21)

1CHILDREN, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 2?Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with a promise;) 3that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest be long-lived upon earth.?

4And, ye fathers, exasperate not your children: but educate them in the discipline and admonition of the Lord.

Serving with Honor
(Colossians 3:22–25; 1 Timothy 6:1–2)

5Servants, be obedient to your masters after the flesh, with fear and trembling, in simplicity of your heart as unto Christ; 6not with eye-service, as men-pleasers; but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the soul; 7with good will doing service as to the Lord, and not unto men: 8knowing that whatsoever good a man doeth, the same shall he receive from the Lord, whether he be a bondman, or whether he be free.

9And ye masters, do the same things to them, avoiding menacing language: knowing that you also yourselves have a master in heaven; and there is no respect of persons with him.

The Full Armor of God

10Finally, brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11Be clothed in the panoply of God, that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For our conflict is not merely against flesh and blood, but against principalities, and against powers, and against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against wicked spirits in the aerial regions. 13Therefore take the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all things to stand. 14Stand therefore, girded about your loins with truth, and putting on the breastplate of righteousness; 15and underneath your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16and over all lifting up the shield of faith, with which ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18praying at every opportunity with all prayer and supplication in Spirit, and watching for this very purpose with perseverance and intercession for all the saints; 19and for me that there may be given unto me utterance to open my mouth with boldness, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20for which I am an ambassador in bonds; that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

Final Greetings
(Philippians 4:21–23; 2 Timothy 4:19–22)

21But that ye also may know the things which concern me, and what I am doing, Tychicus will inform you of the whole, a beloved brother, and faithful in the Lord: 22whom I have sent unto you for this very purpose, that ye may know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.

23Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 24Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity.Written to the Ephesians from Rome by Tychicus.
