    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:20

    Hijos, obedeced a vuestros padres en todo; porque esto agrada al Seor.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Colossians 3:20

    Verse 20.
    Children, obey-in all things] That is, in the Lord - in every thing that your parents command you, which is not contrary to the will or word of God.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20.
    Children, obey your parents , etc.] Both father and mother; (see Gill on Ephesians 6:1). in all things ; not in things sinful, which are contrary to the law of God, and Gospel of Christ; in things repugnant to the duties of religion, the ordinances of the Gospel, and the doctrines of Christ, parents are to be neglected and disobeyed. God is to be regarded, and not men; but in all things good and lawful, and in all things that are of an indifferent nature, which may, or may not be done, in these things the will of earthly parents is to be attended to; of which there is a considerable instance in the Rechabites, (see Jeremiah 35:6-10) and even they are to be obeyed in things that are hard and difficult to be complied with, and which are disagreeable to flesh and blood, as the cases of Isaac and Jephthah's daughter show. For this is well pleasing unto the Lord ; and is a reason sufficient to engage to the performance of the duty; for whatever is grateful and well pleasing to God ought to be done with pleasure by us, from a principle of love to him, by faith in him, and with a view to his glory; and then such an action is acceptable in his sight through Jesus Christ our Lord. The Alexandrian copy reads, in the Lord; and so the Vulgate Latin version.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18-25 - The
    epistles most taken up in displaying the glory of the Divine grace and magnifying the Lord Jesus, are the most particular in pressing the duties of the Christian life. We must never separate the privileges an duties of the gospel. Submission is the duty of wives. But it is submission, not to a severe lord or stern tyrant, but to her ow husband, who is engaged to affectionate duty. And husbands must love their wives with tender and faithful affection. Dutiful children ar the most likely to prosper. And parents must be tender, as well a children obedient. Servants are to do their duty, and obey their masters' commands, in all things consistent with duty to God their heavenly Master. They must be both just and diligent; without selfis designs, or hypocrisy and disguise. Those who fear God, will be jus and faithful when from under their master's eye, because they know the are under the eye of God. And do all with diligence, not idly an slothfully; cheerfully, not discontented at the providence of God whic put them in that relation. And for servants' encouragement, let the know, that in serving their masters according to the command of Christ they serve Christ, and he will give them a glorious reward at last But, on the other hand, he who doeth wrong, shall receive for the wron which he hath done. God will punish the unjust, as well as reward the faithful servant; and the same if masters wrong their servants. For the righteous Judge of the earth will deal justly between master an servant. Both will stand upon a level at his tribunal. How happy woul true religion make the world, if it every where prevailed, influence every state of things, and every relation of life! But the professio of those persons who are regardless of duties, and give just cause for complaint to those they are connected with, deceives themselves, a well as brings reproach on the gospel __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    20. This is well pleasing. Expanded in
    Eph. vi. 2, 3. Unto the Lord should be in the Lord.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:20 {Obey your
    parents} (hupakouete tois goneusin). Old verb to listen under (as looking up), to hearken, to heed, to obey. {In all things} (kata panta). this is the hard part for the child, not occasional obedience, but continual. Surely a Christian father or mother will not make unreasonable or unjust demands of the child. Nowhere does modern civilization show more weakness than just here. Waves of lawlessness sweep over the world because the child was not taught to obey. Again Paul argues that this is "in the Lord" (en kuriwi).
