King James 2000
Children and Parents
1Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
2Honor your father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
3That it may be well with you, and you may live long on the earth.
4And, you fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Servants and Masters
5Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
6Not with eye service, as men pleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
7With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
8Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man does, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
9And, you masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.
Put On the Whole Armor of God
10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heavenly places.
13Therefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14Stand therefore, having your loins girded about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16Above all, taking the shield of faith, with which you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thus with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that in this I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
21But that you also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:
22Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that you might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.
23Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
24Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
