What could happen when you disrespect your parents?

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” is the first commandment with a promise that you may live long and that it may go well with you.

The command was given to God’s people just before God gave them their promised land. It is true in the Old Testament as it is in the New Testament that included the gentiles. (Ephesians 6:1-2; Deuteronomy 5:16; Matthew 15:4)

You will die in obscure darkness

Cursing your parents comes with a greater curse to the child. It remains true in the Old Testament, the New Testament, and today.

  • Exodus 21:17 – And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death.
  • Exodus 21:15 – Whoever strikes his father or his mother shall be put to death.
  • Leviticus 20:9 – If there is anyone who curses his father or his mother, he shall surely be put to death; he has cursed his father or his mother, his bloodguiltiness is upon him.
  • Proverbs 20:20 Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.
  • Proverbs 30:17 The eye that mocks a father and scorns to obey a mother will be picked out by the ravens of the valley and eaten by the vultures.
  • Matthew 15:4 For God said: Honor your father and your mother; and, The one who speaks evil of father or mother must be put to death.
  • Proverbs 20:20 Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.
