    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:3

    para que te vaya bien, y seas de larga vida sobre la tierra.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. That it may be well with thee , &c.] In this
    world, and that which is to come; (see Deuteronomy 5:16). The Jews say, there are four things, which if a man does, he eats the fruit of them in this world, and the capital part remains for him in the world to come; and they are these, aw ba dwbyk ; honouring father and mother, doing acts of beneficence, making peace between a man and his neighbour, and learning of the law, which answers to them all. And thou mayest live long on the earth : length of days is in itself a blessing; and though men's days cannot be lengthened beyond God's purpose and decree; and though obedient children do not always live long; yet disobedience to parents often brings the judgments of God on children, so that they die not a common death, ( 2 Samuel 18:14 Proverbs 30:17). On those words in ( Deuteronomy 32:47), the Jews have this paraphrase; because it is your life, aw ba dwbyk hz , this is honouring father and mother; and through this thing ye shall prolong your days, this is beneficence.

    It may be observed, that the words in this promissory part are not the same as in the decalogue, where they stand thus, that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, ( Exodus 20:12), referring to the land of Canaan; for the law in the form of it, in which it was delivered by Moses, only concerned the people of the Jews; wherefore to suit this law, and the promise of it, to others, the apostle alters the language of it.


    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

    3. Thou mayest
    live long (esh makrocroniov). Lit., mayest be long-lived. The adjective occurs only here.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:3 {That it may be well with thee} (hina eu soi genetai). From #Ex 20:12, "that it may happen to thee well." {And thou mayest
    live long on the earth} (kai esei makrocronios epi tes ges). Here esei (second person singular future middle) takes the place of genei in the LXX (second person singular second aorist middle subjunctive). makrocronios is a late and rare compound adjective, here only in N.T. (from LXX, #Ex 20:12).
