“For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.”
King James Version (KJV)
15:4 Honour thy father and mother - Which implies all such relief as they stand in need of. #Exod 20:12|; 21:17.
Mt 15:4 For God commanded. See Ex 21:17. He that curseth, etc. The Ten Commandments promised long life to those who honored father and mother (Ex 20:12 De 5:16). Here the Lord quotes the punishment of dishonoring them. (See also Le 20:9.) On nothing did Moses insist more than respect for parents.
