People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 6:4
Eph 6:4 And, ye fathers. Parents have duties as well as children. Two are named. Provoke not your children to wrath. Passionate and unreasonable rebukes, intemperate language, or cruel usage, would provoke resentment on the part of children. But bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. The Revised Version reads: "Nurture them in the chastening and admonition of the Lord". Training and restraining as well as admonition are implied. The Lord holds all parties responsible for a Christian training of their children.
