Exodus 21:17

And he that curses his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death.
Read Chapter 21

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Curseth, or speaking injuriously. The Athenians put such in prison.

John Chrysostom

AD 407
One who speaks ill of his mother or father will die the death. One who speaks well of them will have full enjoyment of the rewards of life. If our parents in the flesh should enjoy such good will from us, so much the more would this hold true for our parents in the spirit.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
