Bible Study on Respecting Elders

respect-the-elders

Christians must always respect elders, people who are older than they. This includes the leaders at the church, your father and mother and grandparents, and other people you may know. If you see someone older than you sin against God’s commandment, you should speak to him gently, pointing out the verses in the bible so that he will listen and change. You should speak to an elder, as you would speak to your father or mother. Children must always listen and do what their parents say. The bible says you will live long on earth if you honor your father and mother.

Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.Honour 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 bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:1-4 KJV)

Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I am the Lord. (Leviticus 19:32 KJV)

Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren. (1 Timothy 5:1 KJV)

The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head. (Proverbs 20:29 KJV)

Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. (Colossians 3:20 KJV)

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. (Exodus 20:12 KJV)

Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness. (Proverbs 20:20 KJV)

Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old. (Proverbs 23:22 KJV)

But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. (1 Timothy 5:8 KJV)

The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it. (Proverbs 30:17 KJV)

 For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him. (Leviticus 20:9 KJV)

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: (1 Peter 5:5-6 KJV)

 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear. (Deuteronomy 21:18-21 KJV)
