Children and Parents - Deuteronomy 4:39-40
6:1 Children, obey your parents in Adonay: for this is right.
6:2 Honour your father and mother--which is the first commandment with a promise--
6:3 "that it may go well with you and that you may have a long life in the land."
6:4 And fathers, don't stir up anger in your children, but bring them up in the training and instruction of the Adonay.
Servants and Masters
6:5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as to Mashiach;
6:6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Mashiach, doing the will of Elohim from the heart;
6:7 Render service with a good attitude, as to Adonay and not to men,
6:8 Knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from Adonay, whether he is a slave or free.
6:9 And masters, treat them the same way, without threatening them, because you know that both their and your Master is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with Him.
6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in Adonay, and in the power of His might.
6:11 Put on the whole armor of Elohim, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
6:13 Wherefore take to you the whole armour of Elohim, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
6:14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
6:15 and your feet sandaled with readiness for the Good News of peace.
6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Ruach, which is the Dvar of Elohim:
6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Ruach, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the Set-Apart Ones—
6:19 And for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the Good News,
6:20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
6:21 But that you also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tuchikos, a beloved brother and faithful minister in Adonay, shall make known to you all things:
6:22 Whom I have sent to you for the same purpose, that you might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.
6:23 Shalom be to the brethren, and love with faith, from Elohim ha AVI and Adonay Yehoshua (יהושע) Mashiach.
6:24 Grace be with all them that love Adoneinu Yehoshua (יהושע) ha Mashiach in sincerity. Amein. To the Ephesios written from Rome, by Tychicus.

Note that “Salvation?here is not just the initial salvation, but that cheerful, courageous, conscious assurance of mind that Elohim will deliver in any given circumstance. Elohim is our Deliverer past, present and future. Daniel’s three friends in the furnace of fire gave us a vivid example of the “helmet of salvation? Assurance of eventual deliverance preserves us from retreat or surrender. Romans 8:31 tells us that "If Elohim is for us, who can be against us?" Also Assurance of Salvation will keep us from the accusation of the Evil one Zechariah 3:1-5. Beware of Deception and lies, we can see how Eve was deceived (Genesis 3).

Eph 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery
darts of the wicked. 此外又拿著信德當作籐牌、可以滅盡那惡者一切的火箭． Faith here does not refer to the saving faith of a sinner laying hold on Messiah.
