Honour your father and mother, —
their authority you must obey,
unless, of course, it counters God.
Your parents are far more wise;
their love, do not betray,
but cherish your father and mother.
Disobedience do not devise,
lest their joy you belay.
All authority comes from God.
Do not be unwise, —
your parents, do not dismay,
but serve your father and mother.
Your birth is their lovely prize;
with them you should pray,
for you came from God.
In the morning you should arise
with many thanks to give away,
for God gave you your father and mother.
Let us, therefore, give thanks to God.
