Verse 16

Honour thy father and thy mother, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee ,.... And is the first commandment with promise, as the apostle observes, Ephesians 6:2 with a promise of long life and happiness in the land of Canaan, as follows:

that thy days may be prolonged ; see Exodus 20:12 here it is added:

and that it may go well with thee ; and which the apostle also has in the place referred to:

in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee ; the land of Canaan; which the same apostle explains to a greater latitude:

that thou mayest live long on the earth ; applying it to Christians under the Gospel dispensation, whether Jews or Gentiles.
