Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.あなたの父と母を敬え。これは、あなたの神、主が賜わる地で、あなたが長く生きるためである。
The fifth commandment affects the way that we act towards people in authority. It shows us that we should respect and obey our parents and other people whom God has put over us. Yet, it also shows us that there is a kind of respect that we should show towards all human beings. It does not matter where someone was born, how much money they have, or what social group they are a part of, we should show them respect. This Christian attitude forbids all prejudice and favoritism.
