FIFTH
COMMANDMENT
"
Honour
thy
father
and
thy
mother
:
that
thydays
may
be
long
upon
the
land
which
the
Lord
thy
God
giveth
thee."
Ex.

12.
rilHE
first
four
Commandments
are
concerned
with
the
-*-
duties
we
owe
to
God.
The
next
six
relate
to
the
duties
we
owe
our
neighbour,
and
the
first
of
these
naturally
deals
with
the
honour
children
owe
to
their
parents.
This
Commandment
is
set
first
in
our
duties
to
our
neighbour,
in
order
to
show
that
the
well-being
of
thefamily
is
the
foundation
on
which
the
well-being
of
every
other
human
association
depends,
whether
that
associa-
tion
is
the
church,
the
school,
the
college,
the
guild,
the
trades
union,
the
corporation,
the
nation
or
the
league
of
nations
:
one
and
all
depend
on
thefamily
life
for
their
well-being.
Destroy
thefamily
and
sooner
or
later
you
destroy
all
these.
And
not
only
is
the
importance
of
this
Commandment
emphasised
by
the
foremost
position
it
occupies,
but
also
by
the
form
in
which
it
is
conveyed.
All
theother
nine
are
negative.
They
declare,
you
are
not
to
commit
this
offence,
you
are
not
to
do
that.
Even
the
fourth
is
as
negative
as
the
rest
in
this
respect
:
it
required
the
Hebrew
to
do
nothing
at
all
on
the
Sabbath
day.

THE
DECALOGUE
Such
negative
Commandments
are
necessary
restraints
and
curbs
imposedon
the
licence
of
human
nature,
limits
set
to
the
action
of
the
human
will
in
various
directions,
and
to
the
breach
of
some
of
these
Command-
ments
severe
penalties
areattached.
\
\.
But
to
the
fifth
Commandment
there
is
no
penalty
appended
:
moreover,
itis
not
a
negative
but
a
positive
command.
It
is
couched
in
words
dignified
and
tender
"
Honour
thy
father
and
thy
mother
"
words
to
which
the
heart
naturallyresponds,
and
to
this
command
is
added
the
gracious
promise
"
that
thy
days
may
be
long
upon
the
land
which
the
Lord
thy
God
giveth
thee."
It
is
maintained
by
most
scholars
that
this
promise
is
made,
not
to
the
individual,
but
to
the
nation.
As
regards
the
nation,
it
is,
of
course,
an
indisputable
fact
that
where
the
family
life
is
maintained
in
honour
and
uprightness,
and
successive
generations
are
linked
together
by
such
spiritual
bonds
as
the
love
and
respect
of
children
for
their
parents,
the
nation
has
therein
the
best
guarantee
for
its
well-being
and
permanence.
For
God
sets
no
limit
to
the
life
of
any
nation
on
earth.
Every
nation
is
capable
of
enduring
as
long
as
the
world
endureth.
But
if
a
nation
is
to
enjoy
this
relative
immortality
on
earth,
it
must
be
ableto
look
back
to
its
past
with
reverence
and
look
forward
to
its
future
with
hope.
If,
on
the
other
hand,
a
nation
thinks
of
the
best
in
its
past
only
withcontempt,
it
can
contem-
plate
the
future
only
with
despair.
For
it
hasthereby
shown
itself
to
be
unable
to
interpret
and
developthe
noblest
elements
of
the
past
;
and,
when
this
is
so,
