2.      Joshua 24:15

Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.

3.      Psalm 103:17-18

But the loving kindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children's children, to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.

4.      Proverbs 1:8-9

Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching, for they are a graceful garland for your head and pendants for your neck.

7.      Ephesians 5:22 -25, 28

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.  For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands... Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her...  In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.

8.      Ephesians 6:1-4

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.  "Honor your father and mother" (this is the first commandment with a promise), "that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land."  Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

9.      Genesis 2:24
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

10.  Psalm 128:3
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.
