Children and Parents (Old Testament)

Genesis 43 : 24 - And the man brought the men into Joseph's house, and gave them water, and they washed their feet. And he gave their asses provender. And they made ready the present against Joseph's coming at noon: for they heard that they should eat bread there. And when Joseph came home, they brought him the present which was in their hand into the house, and bowed down themselves to him to the earth. And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father well, the old man of whom you spoke? Is he yet alive? And they said, Your servant our father is well, he is yet alive. And they bowed the head, and made obeisance.

Leviticus 12 : 1 - And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the children of Israel, saying, If a woman conceive seed, and bear a man-child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as in the days of the impurity of her sickness shall she be unclean. And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised. And she shall continue in the blood of her purifying three and thirty days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled. But if she bear a maid-child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her impurity; and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days. And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son, or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb a year old for a burnt-offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtle-dove, for a sin-offering, to the door of the tent of meeting, to the priest: and he shall offer it before Jehovah, and make atonement for her; and she shall be cleansed from the fountain of her blood. This is the law for her that bears, whether a male or a female. And if her means suffice not for a lamb, then she shall take two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons; the one for a burnt-offering, and the other for a sin-offering: and the priest shall make atonement for her, and she shall be clean.

Deuteronomy 4 : 9 .... take heed to yourself, and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things which your eyes saw, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life; but make them known to your children and your children's children ...

Deuteronomy 5 : 16 - Honor your father and your mother, as Jehovah your God commanded you; that your days may be long, and that it may go well with you, in the land which Jehovah your God gives you.

Deuteronomy 11 : 18 - Therefore shall you lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul; and you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes. And you shall teach them your children, talking of them, when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall write them upon the door-posts of your house, and upon your gates; that your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which Jehovah sware to your fathers to give them

Deuteronomy 21 : 18 - 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 to them: Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out to the elders of his city, and to the gate of his place; And they shall say to 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 shall you put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear. And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be to be put to death, and you hang him on a tree: His body shall not remain all night on the tree, but you shall in any wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of God;) that your land be not defiled, which the LORD your God gives you for an inheritance.

2 Chronicles 34 : 1 - Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign; and he reigned thirty and one years in Jerusalem. And he did that which was right in the eyes of Jehovah, and walked in the ways of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left. For in the eighth year of his reign, while he was yet young, he began to seek after the God of David his father; and in the twelfth year he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem from the high places, and the Asherim, and the graven images, and the molten images. And they broke down the altars of the Baalim in his presence; and the sun-images that were on high above them he hewed down; and the Asherim, and the graven images, and the molten images, he broke in pieces, and made dust of them, and strewed it upon the graves of them that had sacrificed to them. And he burnt the bones of the priests upon their altars, and purged Judah and Jerusalem. And so did he in the cities of Manasseh and Ephraim and Simeon, even to Naphtali, in their ruins round about. And he broke down the altars, and beat the Asherim and the graven images into powder, and hewed down all the sun-images throughout all the land of Israel, and returned to Jerusalem. Now in the eighteenth year of his reign, when he had purged the land and the house, he sent Shaphan the son of Azaliah, and Maaseiah the governor of the city, and Joah the son of Joahaz the recorder, to repair the house of Jehovah his God. And they came to Hilkiah the high priest, and delivered the money that was brought into the house of God, which the Levites, the keepers of the threshold, had gathered of the hand of Manasseh and Ephraim, and of all the remnant of Israel, and of all Judah and Benjamin, and of the inhabitants of Jerusalem. And they delivered it into the hand of the workmen that had the oversight of the house of Jehovah; and the workmen that wrought in the house of Jehovah gave it to mend and repair the house: ( 11 ) even to the carpenters and to the builders gave they it, to buy hewn stone, and timber for couplings, and to make beams for the houses which the kings of Judah had destroyed.

Psalm 78 : 2 - Give ear, O my people, to my law: Incline your ears to the words of my mouth.he commanded our fathers, That they should make them known to their children; That the generation to come might know them, even the children that should be born; Who should arise and tell them to their children ...

Proverbs 4 : 1 - Hear, my sons, the instruction of a father, And attend to know understanding: For I give you good doctrine; Forsake you not my law.

Proverbs 22 : 15 - Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; But the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.

Proverbs 23 : 13 - Withhold not correction from the child; For if you beat him with the rod, he will not die. You shall beat him with the rod, And shall deliver his soul from Sheol. My son, if your heart be wise, My heart will be glad, even mine: Yes, my heart will rejoice, When your lips speak right things. Let not your heart envy sinners; But be you in the fear of Jehovah all the day long: For surely there is a reward; And your hope shall not be cut off. Hear you, my son, and be wise, And guide your heart in the way. Be not among winebibbers, Among gluttonous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty; And drowsiness will clothe a man with rags. Hearken to your father that begot you, And despise not your mother when she is old. Buy the truth, and sell it not; Yes, wisdom, and instruction, and understanding. The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice; And he that begets a wise child will have joy of him. Let your father and your mother be glad, And let her that bore you rejoice ( 25 ) My son, give me your heart; And let your eyes delight in my ways. For a harlot is a deep ditch; And a foreign woman is a narrow pit. Yes, she lies in wait as a robber, And increases the treacherous among men..( 28 )

Proverbs 28 : 24 - Whoso robs his father or his mother, and says, It is no transgression, The same is the companion of a destroyer. He that is of a greedy spirit stirs up strife; But he that puts his trust in Jehovah shall be made fat. He that trusts in his own heart is a fool; But whoso walks wisely, he shall be delivered. He that gives to the poor shall not lack; But he that hides his eyes shall have many a curse. When the wicked rise, men hide themselves; But when they perish, the righteous increase.

Isaiah 54 : 11 - O you afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will set your stones in fair colors, and lay your foundations with sapphires. And I will make your pinnacles of rubies, and your gates of carbuncles, and all your border of precious stones. And all your children shall be taught of Jehovah; and great shall be the peace of your children.

Jeremiah 31 : 15 - Thus says Jehovah: A voice is heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping, Rachel weeping for her children; she refuses to be comforted for her children, because they are not. Thus says Jehovah: Refrain your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears; for your work shall be rewarded, says Jehovah; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy. And there is hope for your latter end, says Jehovah; and your children shall come again to their own border. I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself thus, You have chastised me, and I was chastised, as a calf unaccustomed to the yoke: turn you me, and I shall be turned; for you areJehovah my God. Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh: I was ashamed, yes, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of my youth. ( 20 ) Is Ephraim my dear son? is he a darling child? for as often as I speak against him, I do earnestly remember him still: therefore my heart yearns for him; I will surely have mercy upon him, says Jehovah.

Amos 1 : 13 - Thus says Jehovah: For three transgressions of the children of Ammon, yes, for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have ripped up the women with child of Gilead, that they may enlarge their border. But I will kindle a fire in the wall of Rabbah, and it shall devour the palaces thereof, with shouting in the day of battle, with a tempest in the day of the whirlwind; and their king shall go into captivity, he and his princes together, says Jehovah.

Zechariah 10 : 7 - And they of Ephraim shall be like a mighty man, and their heart shall rejoice as through wine; yes, their children shall see it, and rejoice; their heart shall be glad in Jehovah. I will hiss for them, and gather them; for I have redeemed them; and they shall increase as they have increased. And I will sow them among the peoples; and they shall remember me in far countries; and they shall live with their children, and shall return.

Malachi 4 : 6 - And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers; lest I come and smite the earth with a curse

And it came to pass, after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both hearing them, and asking them questions: and all that heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers. And when they saw him, they were astonished; and his mother said to him, Son, why have you thus dealt with us? behold, your father and I sought you sorrowing. And he said to them, How is it that you sought me? knew you not that I must be in my Father's house? And they understood not the saying which he spoke to them.

And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do. Philip answered him, Two hundred shillings' worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one may take a little. One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to him, There is a lad here, who has five barley loaves, and two fishes: but what are these among so many? Jesus said, Make the people sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. Jesus therefore took the loaves; and having given thanks, he distributed to them that were set down; likewise also of the fishes as much as they would. And when they were filled, he said to his disciples, Gather up the broken pieces which remain over, that nothing be lost. So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with broken pieces from the five barley loaves, which remained over to them that had eaten. When therefore the people saw the sign which he did, they said, This is of a truth the prophet that comes into the world.

(Old Testament)

Deuteronomy 6 : 6 - These words, which I command you this day, shall be upon your heart; and you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. And you shall write them upon the posts of your house, and on your gates. And it shall be, when the LORD your God shall have brought you into the land which he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give you great and goodly cities, which you builded not, And houses full of all good things, which you filled not, and wells digged, which you digged not, vineyards and olive trees, which you planted not; when you shall have eaten and be full; Then beware lest you forget the LORD, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. You shall fear the LORD your God, and serve him, and shall swear by his name. You shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you; (For the LORD your God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD your God be kindled against you, and destroy you from off the face of the earth. You shall not tempt the LORD your God, as you tempted him in Massah. You shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he has commanded you. And you shall do that which is right and good in the sight of the LORD: that it may be well with you, and that you may go in and possess the good land which the LORD swore to your fathers, To cast out all your enemies from before you, as the LORD has spoken. ( 20 ) And when your son asks you in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD our God has commanded you? Then you shall say to your son, We were Pharaoh’s bondmen in Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand: And the LORD shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes: And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he swore to our fathers. And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day. And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he has commanded us( 25 ).

1 Samuel 2 : 22 - Now Eli was very old; and he heard all that his sons did to all Israel, and how that they lay with the women that did service at the door of the tent of meeting. And he said unto them, Why do you such things? for I hear of your evil dealings from all this people. No, my sons; for it is no good report that I hear: you make Jehovah's people transgress. If one man sin against another, God shall judge him; but if a man sin against Jehovah, who shall entreat for him? Notwithstanding, they hearkened not to the voice of their father, because Jehovah was minded to slay them.

2 Chronicles 17 : 1 - And Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his stead, and strengthened himself against Israel. And he placed forces in all the fortified cities of Judah, and set garrisons in the land of Judah, and in the cities of Ephraim, which Asa his father had taken. And Jehovah was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the first ways of his father David, and sought not to the Baalim, but sought to the God of his father, and walked in his commandments, and not after the doings of Israel.And Jehovah was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the first ways of his father David, and sought not to the Baalim, but sought to the God of his father, and walked in his commandments, and not after the doings of Israel. Therefore Jehovah established the kingdom in his hand; and all Judah brought to Jehoshaphat tribute; and he had riches and honor in abundance. And his heart was lifted up in the ways of Jehovah: and furthermore he took away the high places and the Asherim out of Judah. Also in the third year of his reign he sent his princes, even Ben-hail, and Obadiah, and Zechariah, and Nethanel, and Micaiah, to teach in the cities of Judah; and with them the Levites, even Shemaiah, and Nethaniah, and Zebadiah, and Asahel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehonathan, and Adonijah, and Tobijah, and Tob-adonijah, the Levites; and with them Elishama and Jehoram, the priests. And they taught in Judah, having the book of the law of Jehovah with them; and they went about throughout all the cities of Judah, and taught among the people. And the fear of Jehovah fell upon all the kingdoms of the lands that were round about Judah, so that they made no war against Jehoshaphat. And some of the Philistines brought Jehoshaphat presents, and silver for tribute; the Arabians also brought him flocks, seven thousand and seven hundred rams, and seven thousand and seven hundred he-goats. And Jehoshaphat waxed great exceedingly; and he built in Judah castles and cities of store. And he had many works in the cities of Judah; and men of war, mighty men of valor, in Jerusalem. And this was the numbering of them according to their fathers’ houses: Of Judah, the captains of thousands: Adnah the captain, and with him mighty men of valor three hundred thousand; and next to him Jehohanan the captain, and with him two hundred and fourscore thousand; and next to him Amasiah the son of Zichri, who willingly offered himself to Jehovah; and with him two hundred thousand mighty men of valor. And of Benjamin: Eliada a mighty man of valor, and with him two hundred thousand armed with bow and shield; and next to him Jehozabad and with him a hundred and fourscore thousand ready prepared for war.

Youth (New Testament)

Acts 23 : 16 - And when it was day, the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul. And they were more than forty that made this conspiracy. And they came to the chief priests and the elders, and said, We have bound ourselves under a great curse, to taste nothing until we have killed Paul. Now therefore do you with the council signify to the chief captain that he bring him down to you, as though you would judge of his case more exactly: and we, before he comes near, are ready to slay him. But Paul's sister's son heard of their lying in wait, and he came and entered the castle and told Paul. And Paul called to him one of the centurions, and said, Bring this young man to the chief captain; for he has something to tell him. So he took him, and brought him to the chief captain, and said, Paul the prisoner called me to him, and asked me to bring this young man to you, who has something to say to you. And the chief captain took him by the hand, and going aside asked him privately, What is it thaty ou have to tell me? And he said, The Jews have agreed to ask you to bring down Paul tomorrow to the council, as though you would inquire somewhat more exactly concerning him. Do not therefore yield to them: for there lie in wait for him of them more than forty men, who have bound themselves under a curse, neither to eat nor to drink till they have slain him: and now are they ready, looking for the promise from you. So the chief captain let the young man go, charging him, Tell no man that you have signified these things to me. And he called to him two of the centurions, and said, Make ready two hundred soldiers to go as far as Caesarea, and horsemen threescore and ten, and spearmen two hundred, at the third hour of the night: and he bade them provide beasts, that they might set Paul thereon, and bring him safe to Felix the governor.

1 Timothy 4 : 12 - Let no man despise your youth; but be an ensample to them that believe, in word, in manner of life, in love, in faith, in purity.

Proverbs 1 : 8 - My son, hear the instruction of your father, And forsake not the law of your mother: For they shall be a chaplet of grace to your head, And chains about your neck.

Ecclesiastes 11 : 7 - Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun. Yes, if a man live many years, let him rejoice in them all; but let him remember the days of darkness, for they shall be many. All that comes is vanity. Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth, and walk in the ways of your heart, and in the sight of your eyes; but know you, that for all these things God will bring you into judgment. Therefore remove sorrow from tyour heart, and put away evil from your flesh; for youth and the dawn of life are vanity
( 10 )

Israel was holiness to Jehovah, the first-fruits of his increase: all that devour him shall be held guilty; evil shall come upon them, says Jehovah.


Abortion (Old Testament)

Exodus 20 : 13 - You shall not kill.

Deuteronomy 30 : 19 - I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse: therefore choose life, that you may live, you and your seed; to love Jehovah your God, to obey his voice, and to cleave to him; for he is your life, and the length of your days

Psalm 139 : 13 - For you formed my inward parts: You covered me in my mother's womb. I will give thanks to you; For I am fearfully and wonderfully made: Wonderful are your works; And that my soul knows right well.

Your eyes saw my unformed substance; And in your book they were all written, Even the days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was none of them.


Abortion (New Testament)

John 8 : 1 - but Jesus went to the mount of Olives. And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came to him; and he sat down, and taught them. And the scribes and the Pharisees bring a woman taken in adultery; and having set her in the midst, they say to him, Teacher, this woman has been taken in adultery, in the very act. Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such: what then say you of her? And this they said, trying him, that they might have whereof to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground. But when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said to them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground. And they, when they heard it, went out one by one, beginning from the eldest, even to the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the midst. And Jesus lifted up himself, and said to her, Woman, where are they? did no man condemn you? And she said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said, Neither do I condemn you: go your way; from henceforth sin no more.

When a girl under 16 is sent for an abortion without telling her parents it means that the baby is killed and a vulnerable teenager has to cope with the physical and emotional consequences without parental support.

Alarmed by the figures for 2007, the latest available, showing the highest rate ever of under-18 abortions, the British government is being urged to establish an abortion information clinic in every school and sixth-form college.

The Society for the protection of Unborn Children is assembling a public petition opposing this. To get a copy to sign or for further information, visit
