6:1 Sons, obey ye to your father and mother, in the Lord; for this thing is just. Children obey your fathers and mothers in the lord: for so is it right. Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
6:2 Honour thou thy father and mother, that is the first commandment in the promise; Honour father and mother, that is the first commandment that hath any promise, Honour thy father and mother (which is the first commandment with promise) Honour thy father and mother, (which is the first commandment with promise,)
6:3 that it be well to thee, and that thou be long living on the earth. that thou mayest be in good estate, and live long on the earth. That it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest live long on earth. That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
6:4 And, ye fathers, do not ye provoke your sons to wrath; but nourish them in the discipline and correction of the Lord. Fathers, move not your children to wrath: but bring them up with the nurture and information of the lord. And ye, fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in instruction and information of the Lord. And ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
6:5 Servants, obey ye to fleshly lords with dread and trembling, in simpleness of your heart, as to Christ; Servants be obedient unto your carnal masters, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your hearts, as unto Christ: Servants, be obedient unto them that are your masters, according to the flesh, with fear and trembling in singleness of your hearts as unto Christ, Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ:
6:6 not serving at eye, as pleasing to men, but as servants of Christ; doing the will of God by discretion, not with service in the eyesight as menpleasers: but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of god from the heart Not with service to the eye, as menpleasers, but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, Not with eye-service as menpleasers, but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart:
6:7 with good will serving as to the Lord, and not to men; with good will, even as though ye served the lord, and not men. With good will serving the Lord, and not men. With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men,
6:8 witting that each man, whatever good thing he shall do, this he shall receive of the Lord, whether servant, whether free man. And remember that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, that shall he receive again of the lord, whether he be bond or free. And know ye that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, that same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
6:9 And, ye lords, do the same things to them, forgiving menaces; witting that both their Lord and yours is in heavens, and the taking of persons is not with God. and ye masters, do even the same things unto them, putting away threatenings: and remember that even your master also is in heaven, neither is there any respect of person with him. And ye masters, do the same things unto them, putting away threatening: & know that even your master also is in heaven, neither is there respect of person with him. And ye 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.
6:10 Here afterward, brethren, be ye comforted in the Lord, and in the might of his virtue. Finally, my brethren be strong in the lord, and in the power of his might. Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, & in the power of his might.
6:11 Clothe you with the armour of God, that ye be able to stand against the ambushings of the devil. Put on the armour of god, that ye may stand stedfast against the crafty assaults of the devil. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the assaults of the devil. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
6:12 For striving is not to us against flesh and blood, but against the princes and potentates, against governors of the world of these darknesses, against spiritual things of wickedness, in heavenly things. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood: but against rule, against power, and against worldly rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heavenly things. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and against the worldly governors, the princes of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickednesses, which are in the high places. For 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 high places.
6:13 Therefore take ye the armour of God, that ye be able to against-stand in the evil day; and in all things stand perfect. For this cause take unto you the armour of god, that ye may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand perfect in all things. For this cause take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to resist in the evil day, & having finished all things, stand fast. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
6:14 Therefore stand ye, girded about your loins in soothfastness, and clothed with the habergeon of rightwiseness, Stand therefore and your loins gird about with verity, having on the breastplate of rightwiseness, Stand therefore, and your loins gird about with verity, & having on the breastplate of righteousness, Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness:
6:15 and your feet shod in making ready of the gospel of peace. and shod with shoes prepared by the gospel of peace. And your feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace. And your feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace.
6:16 In all things taking the shield of faith, in which ye be able to quench all the fiery darts of the worst.

Above all, take the shield of faith, wherewith ye may quench all the fiery darts of the wicked, Above all, taking the shield of Faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
6:17 And take ye the helmet of health, and the sword of the Ghost, that is, the word of God. and take the helmet of health, and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of god, And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
6:18 By all prayer and beseeching praying all time in Spirit, and in him waking in all busyness, and beseeching for all saints, and pray always with all manner prayer and supplication: and that in the spirit: and watch thereunto with all instance and supplication for all saints, And pray always with all manner prayer and supplication in the Spirit: and watch thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all Saints, Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance, and supplication for all Saints,

Whereof I am the ambassador in bonds, that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. For which I am an ambassador in bonds, that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
6:21 And that ye know, what things be about me, what I do, Tychicus, my most dear brother, and true minister in the Lord, shall make all things known to you; But that ye may also know what condition I am in, and what I do, Tychicus my dear brother and faithful minister in the lord, shall shew you of all things, But that ye may also know mine affairs, & what I do, Tychicus my dear brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall shew you of all things, But that ye 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.
