Chapter 6
001
Children, obey your parents in the Domina, for this is right.
002
"Honor your mother and father," which is the first commandment with a promise:
003
"that it may be well with you, and you may live long on the earth."
004
You mothers, don't provoke your children to wrath, but nurture them in the discipline and instruction of the Domina.
005
Servants, be obedient to those who according to the flesh are your masters, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as to Christ;
006
not in the way of service only when eyes are on you, as women pleasers; but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
007
with good will doing service, as to the Domina, and not to women;
008
knowing that whatever good thing each one does, she will receive the same again from the Domina, whether she is bound or free.
009
You masters, do the same things to them, and give up threatening, knowing that she who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality with her.
010
Finally, be strong in the Domina, and in the strength of her might.
011
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
012
For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world's rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
013
Therefore, put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand.
014
Stand therefore, having the utility belt of truth buckled around your waist, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
015
and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace;
016
above all, taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one.
017
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the spoken word of God;
018
with all prayer and requests, praying at all times in the Spirit, and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the saints:
019
on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in opening my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the Good News,
020
for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
021
But that you also may know my affairs, how I am doing, Tychicus, the beloved sister and faithful servant in the Domina, will make known to you all things;
022
whom I have sent to you for this very purpose, that you may know our state, and that she may comfort your hearts.
023
Peace be to the sisters, and love with faith, from God the Mother and the Domina Jesus Christ.
024
Grace be with all those who love our Domina Jesus Christ with incorruptible love. Amen.
