Ephesians 6 (ASV)
 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
 Honor thy father and mother (which is the first commandment with promise),
 that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but nurture them in the chastening and admonition of the Lord.
 Servants, be obedient unto them that according to the flesh are your masters, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
 not in the way of eyeservice, as men-pleasers; but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
 with good will doing service, as unto the Lord, and not unto men:
 knowing that whatsoever good thing each one doeth, the same shall he receive again from the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, and forbear threatening: knowing that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no respect of persons with him.
 Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might.
 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
 For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world-rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
 Wherefore take up the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand.
 Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
 withal taking up the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one.
 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
 with all prayer and supplication praying at all seasons in the Spirit, and watching thereunto in all perseverance and supplication for all the saints,
 And on my behalf, that utterance may be given unto me in opening my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel,
 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
 But that ye also may know my affairs, how I do, Tychicus, the beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:
 whom I have sent unto you for this very purpose, that ye may know our state, and that he may comfort your hearts.
 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ with a love incorruptible.
King James w/Strong’s #s
Ephesians 6 (KJVS)
 Children G5043, obey G5219 (PresActImpr) your G5216 parents G1118 in G1722 the Lord G2962: for G1063 this G5124 is G2076 (PresInd) right G1342.
 Honour G5091 (PresActImpr) thy G4675 father G3962 and G2532 mother G3384; (which G3748 is G2076 (PresInd) the first G4413 commandment G1785 with G1722 promise G1860;)
 That G2443 it may be G1096 (Aor2MidDepSubj) well G2095 with thee G4671, and G2532 thou mayest G2071 (FutInd) live long G3118 on G1909 the earth G1093.
 And G2532, ye fathers G3962, provoke G3949 not G3361 your G5216 children G5043 to wrath G3949 (PresActImpr): but G235 bring G1625 them G846 up G1625 (PresActImpr) in G1722 the nurture G3809 and G2532 admonition G3559 of the Lord G2962.
 Servants G1401, be obedient G5219 (PresActImpr) to them that are [your] masters G2962 according to G2596 the flesh G4561, with G3326 fear G5401 and G2532 trembling G5156, in G1722 singleness G572 of your G5216 heart G2588, as G5613 unto Christ G5547;
 Not G3361 with G2596 eyeservice G3787, as G5613 menpleasers G441; but G235 as G5613 the servants G1401 of Christ G5547, doing G4160 (PresActPtc) the will G2307 of God G2316 from G1537 the heart G5590;
 With G3326 good will G2133 doing service G1398 (PresActPtc), as to the Lord G2962, and G2532 not G3756 to men G444:
 Knowing G1492 (PerfActPtc) that G3754 whatsoever G3739 G1437 G5100 good thing G18 any man G1538 doeth G4160 (AorActSubj), the same G5124 shall he receive G2865 (FutMidDepInd) of G3844 the Lord G2962, whether G1535 [he be] bond G1401 or G1535 free G1658.
 And G2532, ye masters G2962, do G4160 (PresActImpr) the same things G846 unto G4314 them G846, forbearing G447 (PresActPtc) threatening G547: knowing G1492 (PerfActPtc) that G3754 your G5216 G846 Master G2962 also G2532 is G2076 (PresInd) in G1722 heaven G3772; neither G2532 G3756 is there G2076 (PresInd) respect of persons G4382 with G3844 him G846.
 Finally G3063, my G3450 brethren G80, be strong G1743 (PresPasImpr) in G1722 the Lord G2962, and G2532 in G1722 the power G2904 of his G846 might G2479.
 Put on G1746 (AorMidImpr) the whole armour G3833 of God G2316, that G4314 ye G5209 may be able G1410 (PresMidPasDepInf) to stand G2476 (Aor2ActInf) against G4314 the wiles G3180 of the devil G1228.
 For G3754 we G2254 wrestle G3823 not G3756 against G2076 (PresInd) G4314 flesh G4561 and G2532 blood G129, but G235 against G4314 principalities G746, against G4314 powers G1849, against G4314 the rulers G2888 of the darkness G4655 of this G5127 world G165, against G4314 spiritual G4152 wickedness G4189 in G1722 high G2032 [places].
 Wherefore G1223 G5124 take unto you G353 (Aor2ActImpr) the whole armour G3833 of God G2316, that G2443 ye may be able G1410 (AorMidDepSubj) to withstand G436 (Aor2ActInf) in G1722 the evil G4190 day G2250, and G2532 having done G2716 (AorMidDepPtc) all G537, to stand G2476 (Aor2ActInf).
 Stand G2476 (Aor2ActImpr) therefore G3767, having G4024 your G5216 loins G3751 girt about G4024 (AorMidPtc) with G1722 truth G225, and G2532 having on G1746 (AorMidPtc) the breastplate G2382 of righteousness G1343;
 And G2532 your feet G4228 shod G5265 (AorMidPtc) with G1722 the preparation G2091 of the gospel G2098 of peace G1515;
 Above G1909 all G3956, taking G353 (Aor2ActPtc) the shield G2375 of faith G4102, wherewith G1722 G3739 ye shall be able G1410 (FutMidDepInd) to quench G4570 (AorActInf) all G3956 the fiery G4448 (PerfPasPtc) darts G956 of the wicked G4190.
 And G2532 take G1209 (AorMidDepImpr) the helmet G4030 of salvation G4992, and G2532 the sword G3162 of the Spirit G4151, which is G3603 (PresInd) the word G4487 of God G2316:
 Praying G4336 (PresMidPasDepPtc) always G1722 G2540 G3956 with G1223 all G3956 prayer G4335 and G2532 supplication G1162 in G1722 the Spirit G4151, and G2532 watching G69 (PresActPtc) thereunto G1519 G5124 G846 with G1722 all G3956 perseverance G4343 and G2532 supplication G1162 for G4012 all G3956 saints G40;
 And G2532 for G5228 me G1700, that G2443 utterance G3056 may be given G1325 (AorPasOpt) unto me G3427, that I may open G1722 G457 my G3450 mouth G4750 boldly G1722 G3954, to make known G1107 (AorActInf) the mystery G3466 of the gospel G2098,
 For G5228 which G3739 I am an ambassador G4243 (PresActInd) in G1722 bonds G254: that G2443 therein G1722 G846 I may speak boldly G3955 (AorMidDepSubj), as G5613 I G3165 ought G1163 (PresInd) to speak G2980 (AorActInf).
 But G1161 that G2443 ye G5210 also G2532 may know G1492 (PerfActSubj) my G1691 affairs G2596, [and] how G5101 I do G4238 (PresActInd), Tychicus G5190, a beloved G27 brother G80 and G2532 faithful G4103 minister G1249 in G1722 the Lord G2962, shall make known G1107 (FutActInd) to you G5213 all things G3956:
 Whom G3739 I have sent G3992 (AorActInd) unto G4314 you G5209 for G1519 the same G846 purpose G5124, that G2443 ye might know G1097 (Aor2ActSubj) our G2257 affairs G4012, and G2532 [that] he might comfort G3870 (AorActSubj) your G5216 hearts G2588.
 Peace G1515 [be] to the brethren G80, and G2532 love G26 with G3326 faith G4102, from G575 God G2316 the Father G3962 and G2532 the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547.
 Grace G5485 [be] with G3326 all G3956 them that love G25 (PresActPtc) our G2257 Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547 in G1722 sincerity G861. Amen G281. «[To G4314 [the] Ephesians G2180 written G1125 (Aor2PasDepSubj) from G575 Rome G4516, by G1223 Tychicus G5190.]»
Young’s Literal Translation
Ephesians 6 (YLT)
 The children! obey your parents in the Lord, for this is righteous;
 honour thy father and mother,
 which is the first command with a promise, ‘That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live a long time upon the land.’
 And the fathers! provoke not your children, but nourish them in the instruction and admonition of the Lord.
 The servants! obey the masters according to the flesh with fear and trembling, in the simplicity of your heart, as to the Christ;
 not with eye-service as men-pleasers, but as servants of the Christ, doing the will of God out of soul,
 with good-will serving, as to the Lord, and not to men,
 having known that whatever good thing each one may do, this he shall receive from the Lord, whether servant or freeman.
 And the masters! the same things do ye unto them, letting threatening alone, having known that also your Master is in the heavens, and acceptance of persons is not with him.
 As to the rest, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might;
 put on the whole armour of God, for your being able to stand against the wiles of the devil,
 because we have not the wrestling with blood and flesh, but with the principalities, with the authorities, with the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, with the spiritual things of the evil in the heavenly places;
 because of this take ye up the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to resist in the day of the evil, and all things having done-to stand.
 Stand, therefore, having your loins girt about in truth, and having put on the breastplate of the righteousness,
 and having the feet shod in the preparation of the good-news of the peace;
 above all, having taken up the shield of the faith, in which ye shall be able all the fiery darts of the evil one to quench,
 and the helmet of the salvation receive, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the saying of God,
 through all prayer and supplication praying at all times in the Spirit, and in regard to this same, watching in all perseverance and supplication for all the saints-
 and in behalf of me, that to me may be given a word in the opening of my mouth, in freedom, to make known the secret of the good news,
 for which I am an ambassador in a chain, that in it I may speak freely-as it behoveth me to speak.
 And that ye may know-ye also-the things concerning me-what I do, all things make known to you shall Tychicus, the beloved brother and faithful ministrant in the Lord,
 whom I did send unto you for this very thing, that ye might know the things concerning us, and that he might comfort your hearts.
 Peace to the brethren, and love, with faith, from God the Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ!
 The grace with all those loving our Lord Jesus Christ-undecayingly! Amen.
