6:2 “Honor your father and mother” is the first precept with a promise:

6:4 And fathers, do not exasperate your children! Instead, nurture them in the training and counsel of the Master.

6:5 Slaves, listen to your earthly masters with sincere concern and an open heart, as you would to the Anointed.

6:6 Don’t merely put on a show like sycophants, but as slaves of the Anointed, do God’s will from your soul.

6:7 Slave out of goodwill, as you would to the Master and not just to people.

6:8 Understand that if anyone does good they will be repaid for it from the Master, whether slave or free.

6:9 And masters, the same goes for you! Tone down the threats; keep in mind that the Master of both of you is in heaven, and he shows no partiality.

6:13 Because of that, take up the complete armor of God so you are able to stand firm in the day of evil, to stand after having overpowered them. So stand firm:
