Commands for


Ephesians 6:4

"and now a word to you fathers. Don't make your children angry by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction approved by the Lord."

Colosians 3:21

""Fathers, don't aggravate your children. If you do, they will become discouraged and quit trying."

1. Provoke not children to wrath.

Correct, do not punish

Punish, from a principle of revenge. Correction is from a principle of affectionate concern.

Cruel fathers have bad children.

Provoke not lest they have a crushed (broken) (sad) spirit.

2. Bring up children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Their mind is to be nourished with the things of the Lord and His church.
