4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
4 Verse 4. Honour thy father and mother] This word was taken in
great latitude of meaning among the Jews: it not only meant
respect and submission, but also to take care of a person, to
nourish and support him, to enrich. See Nu 22:17; Jud 13:17;
1Ti 5:17. And that this was the sense of the law, as it
respected parents, see De 27:16, and See Clarke on Ex 20:12.
