Heidelberg Catechism – Lord’s Day 39

Question 104: What is God’s will for you in the fifth commandment?

That I honor, love, and be loyal to my father and mother and all those in authority over me; that I submit myself with proper obedience to all their good teaching and discipline (1); and also that I be patient with their failings (2)—for through them God chooses to rule us (3).

1 – Ex. 21:17; Prov. 1:8; 4:1; Rom. 13:1-2; Eph. 5:21-22; 6:1-9; Col. 3:18–4:1
2 – Prov. 20:20; 23:22; 1 Pet. 2:18
3 – Matt. 22:21; Rom. 13:1-8; Eph. 6:1-9; Col. 3:18-21
