    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:1

    ¶ Hijos, obedeced en el Seor a vuestros padres; porque esto es justo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ephesians 6:1

    Verse 1.
    Children, obey your parents] This is a duty with which God will never dispense; he commands it, and one might think that gratitude, from a sense of the highest obligations, would most strongly enforce the command.

    In the Lord] This clause is wanting in several reputable MSS., and in same versions. In the Lord may mean, on account of the commandment of the Lord; or, as far as the parents commands are according to the will and word of God. For surely no child is called to obey any parent if he give unreasonable or unscriptural commands.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. Children, obey your parents in the Lord , &c.] The persons whose duty this is, children, are such of every sex, male and female, and of every age, and of every state and condition; and though the true, legitimate, and immediate offspring of men may be chiefly respected, yet not exclusive of spurious children, and adopted ones, and of children-inlaw; and the persons to whom obedience from them is due, are not only real and immediate parents, both father and mother, but such who are in the room of parents, as step-fathers, step-mothers, guardians, nurses, &c. and all who are in the ascending line, as grandfathers, grandmothers, &c. to these, children should be subject and obedient in all things lawful, just, and good; in everything that is not sinful and unlawful, by the word of God; and in things indifferent, as much as in them lies, and even in things which are difficult to perform: and this obedience should be hearty and sincere, and not merely verbal, and in show and appearance, nor mercenary; and should be joined with gratitude and thankfulness for past favours: and it should be in the Lord; which may be considered either as a limitation of the obedience, that it should be in things that are agreeable to the mind and will of the Lord; or as an argument to it, because it is the command of the Lord, and is wellpleasing in his sight, and makes for his glory, and therefore should be done for his sake: for this is right ; it appears to be right by the light of nature, by which the very Heathens have taught it; and it is equitable from reason that so it should be; and it is just by the law of God, which commands nothing but what is holy, just, and good.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-4 - The great
    duty of children is, to obey their parents. That obedienc includes inward reverence, as well as outward acts, and in every ag prosperity has attended those distinguished for obedience to parents The duty of parents. Be not impatient; use no unreasonable severities Deal prudently and wisely with children; convince their judgements an work upon their reason. Bring them up well; under proper an compassionate correction; and in the knowledge of the duty God requires. Often is this duty neglected, even among professors of the gospel. Many set their children against religion; but this does no excuse the children's disobedience, though it may be awfully occasio it. God alone can change the heart, yet he gives his blessing to the good lessons and examples of parents, and answers their prayers. But those, whose chief anxiety is that their children should be rich an accomplished, whatever becomes of their souls, must not look for the blessing of God.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    1. In the
    Lord. The children being with their parents in the Lord, are to be influenced by religious duty as well as by natural affection.

    Right (dikaion). Belonging essentially to the very nature of the relation.
