Children,G5043 obeyG5219 yourG5216 parentsG1118 in the Lord:G2962 for thisG5124 is right.G1342
HonorG5091 your fatherG3962 and mother;G3384 whichG3748 is the firstG4413 commandmentG1785 with promise;G1860
That it may be wellG2095 with you, and you may liveG2071 G3118 longG3118 onG1909 the earth.G1093
And, you fathers,G3962 provokeG3949 not yourG5216 childrenG5043 to wrath:G3949 but bringG1625 them up in the nurtureG3809 and admonitionG3559 of the Lord.G2962
Servants,G1401 be obedientG5219 to them that are your mastersG2962 accordingG2596 to the flesh,G4561 with fearG5401 and trembling,G5156 in singlenessG572 of yourG5216 heart,G2588 as to Christ;G5547
Not with eye-service,G3787 as men pleasers;G441 but as the servantsG1401 of Christ,G5547 doingG4160 the willG2307 of GodG2316 from the heart;G5590
With goodG2133 willG2133 doingG1398 service,G1398 as to the Lord,G2962 and not to men:G444
KnowingG1492 that whateverG3739 goodG18 thing anyG1538 man does,G4160 the sameG3778 shall he receiveG2865 of the Lord,G2962 whetherG1535 he be bondG1401 orG1535 free.G1658
And, you masters,G2962 doG4160 the sameG846 things to them, forbearingG447 threatening:G547 knowingG1492 that yourG5216 MasterG2962 alsoG2532 is in heaven;G3772 neitherG2532 G3756 is there respectG4382 of personsG4382 with him.
Finally,G3063 my brothers,G80 be strongG1743 in the Lord,G2962 and in the powerG2904 of his might.G2479
PutG1746 onG1746 the whole armorG3833 of God,G2316 that you may be ableG1410 to standG2476 againstG4314 the wilesG3180 of the devil.G1228
For we wrestleG2076 G3823 not againstG4314 fleshG4561 and blood,G129 but againstG4314 principalities,G746 againstG4314 powers,G1849 againstG4314 the rulersG2888 of the darknessG4655 of thisG5127 world,G165 againstG4314 spiritualG4152 wickednessG4189 in highG2032 places.
WhyG1223 G5124 takeG353 to you the whole armorG3833 of God,G2316 that you may be ableG1410 to withstandG436 in the evilG4190 day,G2250 and having doneG2716 all,G537 to stand.G2476
StandG2476 therefore,G3767 having yourG5216 loinsG3751 girtG4024 aboutG4024 with truth,G226 and havingG1746 onG1746 the breastplateG2382 of righteousness;G1343
And yourG3588 feetG4228 shodG5265 with the preparationG2091 of the gospelG2098 of peace;G1515
AboveG1909 all,G3956 takingG353 the shieldG2375 of faith,G4102 with whichG1722 G3739 you shall be ableG1410 to quenchG4570 allG3956 the fieryG4448 dartsG956 of the wicked.G4190
And takeG1209 the helmetG4030 of salvation,G4992 and the swordG3162 of the Spirit,G4151 whichG3739 is the wordG4487 of God:G2316
PrayingG4336 alwaysG1722 with allG3956 prayerG4335 and supplicationG1162 in the Spirit,G4151 and watchingG69 thereuntoG1519 with allG3956 perseveranceG4343 and supplicationG1162 for allG3956 saints;G40
And for me, that utteranceG3056 may be givenG1325 to me, that I may openG1722 G457 my mouthG4750 boldly,G3954 to makeG1107 knownG1107 the mysteryG3466 of the gospel,G2098
For whichG3739 I am an ambassadorG4243 in bonds:G254 that thereinG1722 G846 I may speak boldly,G3955 as I oughtG1163 to speak.G2980
But that you alsoG2532 may knowG1492 my affairs,G2596 and howG5101 I do,G4238 Tychicus,G5190 a belovedG27 brotherG80 and faithfulG4103 ministerG1249 in the Lord,G2962 shall makeG1107 knownG1107 to you allG3956 things:
WhomG3739 I have sentG3992 to you for the sameG846 purpose, that you might knowG1097 our affairs,G4012 and that he might comfortG3870 yourG5216 hearts.G2588
PeaceG1515 be to the brothers,G80 and loveG26 with faith,G4102 from GodG2316 the FatherG3962 and the LordG2962 JesusG2424 Christ.G5547
GraceG5485 be with allG3956 them that loveG25 our LordG2962 JesusG2424 ChristG5547 in sincerity.G861 Amen.G281 To the Ephesians written from Rome, by Tychicus.
