Ephesians 6

The duty of children towards their parents,

Ephesians 6:1 Chyldren, obey your fathers and mothers in the Lorde: for this is ryght. Ephesians 6:2 Honour thy father and mother (whiche is the first commaundement in promise) Ephesians 6:3 That thou mayest prosper, and lyue long on earth. Ephesians 6:4 Fathers prouoke not your children to wrath: but bring them vp in instruction and information of the Lorde.

of servants towards their masters.

Ephesians 6:5 Seruauntes obey them that are your bodyly maisters, with feare and tremblyng, in singlenesse of your heart, as vnto Christe. Ephesians 6:6 Not with seruice vnto the eye, as men pleasers: but as the seruautes of Christ. Ephesians 6:7 Doyng the wyll of God fro the heart, with good wyll seruyng the Lorde, and not men: Ephesians 6:8 Knowyng, that whatsoeuer good thyng any man doeth, that shall he receaue agayne of the Lorde, whether [he be] bonde or free. Ephesians 6:9 And ye maisters do the same thynges vnto them, puttyng away threatnyng: knowyng that your maister also is in heauen, neither is respecte of person with hym.

Our life is a warfare,

Ephesians 6:10 Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lorde, & in the power of his might. Ephesians 6:11 Put on all the armour of God, that ye may stande agaynst the assaultes of the deuyll.

not only against flesh and blood, but also spiritual enemies.

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrastle not agaynst blood & flesshe: but agaynst rule, agaynst power, agaynst worldly gouernours of the darknesse of this worlde, agaynst spirituall craftynesse in heauenly [places.]

The complete armour of a Christian,

Ephesians 6:13 Wherfore take vnto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to resist in the euyll day, and hauing finished all thynges, to stande fast. Ephesians 6:14 Stande therfore, hauyng loynes girt about with the trueth, and puttyng on the brest plate of righteousnesse, Ephesians 6:15 And hauyng your feete shodde, in the preparation of the Gospell of peace. Ephesians 6:16 Aboue all, takyng the shielde of fayth, wherwith ye may quenche all the fierie dartes of the wicked: Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of saluation, and the sworde of the spirite, whiche is the worde of God.

and how it ought to be used.

Ephesians 6:18 Praying alwayes in all prayer and supplication in the spirite, and watche thervnto with all instaunce and supplication, for all saintes, Ephesians 6:19 And for me, that vtteraunce may be geue vnto me, yt I may open my mouth freely, to vtter ye secretes of the Gospell. Ephesians 6:20 Whereof I am messenger in bondes, that therein I may speake freely, as I ought to speake.

Tychicus is commended.

Ephesians 6:21 But yt ye may also knowe my affaires, and what I do, Tichicus a deare brother and faythfull minister in the Lord, shall shewe you all thynges: Ephesians 6:22 Whom I haue sent vnto you for the same purpose, that ye myght knowe of our affaires, and that he myght comfort your heartes. Ephesians 6:23 Peace [be] vnto the brethren, and loue, with fayth, from God the father, and from the Lorde Iesus Christe. Ephesians 6:24 Grace be with all them whiche loue our Lorde Iesus Christe in sinceritie. Amen. {Sent from Rome vnto the Ephesians, by Tichicus.}
