6 Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
Instructions for Christian Households
21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the churchâ€” 30 for we are members of his body. 31 â€œFor this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.â€ 32 This is a profound mysteryâ€”but I am talking about Christ and the church. 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
6 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 â€œHonor your father and motherâ€â€”which is the first commandment with a promiseâ€” 3 â€œso that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.â€
