    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:21

    Padres, no irritis a vuestros hijos, para que no se vuelvan de poco nimo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Colossians 3:21

    Verse 21. Fathers,
    provoke not] See the notes on Eph. vi. 4.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 21. Fathers,
    provoke not your children to anger , etc.] (See Gill on Ephesians 6:4). lest they be discouraged ; or disheartened and dispirited; their spirits be broke through grief and trouble, and they become indolent, sluggish, and unfit for business; or, despairing of having any share in the affections of their parents, disregard their commands, instructions, and corrections, and grow obdurate, stubborn, and rebellious.

    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

    21.
    Provoke to anger (ereqizete). Only here and 2 Cor. ix. 2, where it is used of stirring up to good works. To anger is added by A.V. Be discouraged (ajqumwsin). Only here in the New Testament. Lose heart, or become dispirited.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:21 {
    Provoke not} (me ereqizete). Present imperative of old verb from ereqw, to excite. Only twice in N.T., here in bad sense, in good sense in #2Co 9:2 (to stimulate). Here it means to nag and as a habit (present tense). {That they be not discouraged} (hina me aqumwsin). Negative purpose (hina me) with the present subjunctive (continued discouragement) of aqumew, old verb, but only here in N.T., from aqumos (dispirited, a privative, qumos, spirit or courage). One does not have to read _Jane Eyre_ or _Oliver Twist_ to know something of the sorrows of childhood as is witnessed by runaway children and even child suicides.
