    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:2

    Honra a tu padre y a tu madre, (que es el primer mandamiento con promesa),

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ephesians 6:2

    Verse 2. honour thy
    father] See the notes on Exod. xx. 12, &c., where this subject, together with the promises and threatenings connected with it, is particularly considered, and the reasons of the duty laid down at large.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. Honour thy
    father and mother , &c.] This explains who parents are, and points at some branches of obedience due unto them; for they are not only to be loved, and to be feared, and reverenced, their corrections to be submitted to, offences against them to be acknowledged, their tempers to be bore with, and their infirmities covered; but they are to be honoured in thought, word, and gesture; they are to be highly thought of and esteemed; they are to be spoken to, and of, very honourably, and with great veneration and to be behaved to in a very respectful manner; and they are to be relieved, assisted, and maintained in comfortable way when aged, and in necessitous circumstances; and which may be chiefly designed. So the Jews explain dwbk , the honour due to parents, by, &c. lykam , giving them food, drink, and clothing, unloosing their shoes, and leading them out and in f69 . Compare with this ( 1 Timothy 5:4,17); (see Gill on Matthew 15:4); which is the first commandment with promise : it is the fifth commandment in the decalogue, but the first that has a promise annexed to it: it is reckoned by the Jews the weightiest of the weightiest commands of the law; and the reward bestowed on it, is length of days, as follows.

    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

    2.
    Honor thy father, etc. To what is essentially right the divine ordinance is added. Compare Aeschylus: "For the reverence of parents, this is written third in the laws of much-venerated justice" ("Suppliants," 687-689). So Euripides: "There are three virtues which thou shouldst cultivate, my child, to honor the gods, and thy parents who gave thee being and the common laws of Hellas" (Fragment). Honor expresses the frame of mind from which obedience proceeds.

    First - with promise (prwth en epaggelia). First in point of promise, as it also is in order the first with promise.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:2 {Which} (hetis). "Which very" = "for such is." {The first commandment with promise} (entole prwte en epaggeliai). en here means "accompanied by" (Alford). But why "with a promise"? The second has a general promise, but the fifth alone (#Ex 20:12) has a specific promise. Perhaps that is the idea. Some take it to be first because in the order of time it was taught first to children, but the addition of en epaggeliai here to prwte points to the other view.
