Honour your parents

Deuteronomy 5:16

Honour thy father and thy mother, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.  -kjv

Ephesians 6:1-3

1Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.  -kjv

This commandment is repeated in both old testament and new testament and is thus still a commandment today. This commandment, if followed, will add years to the person’s life.



  1. According to scripture since my wife Nida and I have had enormous health problems we must not have honored our parents enough. I thought I did. However these verses do not describe everything in our life. I have been blessed financially and in other ways. It seems when bad health happens we are being taught a lesson.
