Rom.9:8 8τοῦτ᾽ ἔστιν οὐ τὰ τέκνα τῆς σαρκὸς ταῦτα τέκνα τοῦ θεοῦ· ἀλλὰ τὰ τέκνα τῆς ἐπαγγελίας λογίζεται εἰς σπέρμα. 8 This means that Abraham’s physical descendants are not necessarily {RPT} children of {NEQ} God . Only the children of the promise are considered to be Abraham’s children .

He will remind you of how I follow {RPT} Christ Jesus , just as I teach in all the churches wherever I go .
1Cor.7:14 14ἡγίασται γὰρ ἀνὴρ ἄπιστος ἐν τῇ γυναικί, καὶ ἡγίασται γυνὴ ἄπιστος ἐν τῷ ἀδελφῷ· ἐπεὶ ἄρα, τὰ τέκνα ὑμῶν ἀκάθαρτά ἐστιν, νῦν δὲ ἅγιά ἐστιν. 14 For the Christian wife brings holiness to her marriage , and the Christian husband  *  brings holiness to his marriage . Otherwise , your {NEQ} children would not be holy , but now they are holy .
2Cor.6:13 13τὴν δὲ αὐτὴν ἀντιμισθίαν ὡς τέκνοις λέγω· πλατύνθητε καὶ ὑμεῖς. 13 {NEQ} I am asking you to respond as if you were my own children . {NEQ} Open your hearts to us !

After all , {NEQ} children don’t provide for their parents . Rather , {NEQ} parents provide for their children .
Gal.4:25 25τὸ δὲ ̔Άγαρ Σινὰ ὄρος ἐστὶν ἐν τῇ Ἀραβίᾳ συστοιχεῖ δὲ τῇ νῦν Ἰερουσαλήμ, δουλεύει γὰρ μετὰ τῶν τέκνων αὐτῆς. 25 And now Jerusalem is {NEQ} just like Mount Sinai in {NEQ} Arabia ,  *  because she and her {NEQ} children live in slavery to the law .
Gal.4:27 27γέγραπται γάρ, Εὐφράνθητι, στεῖρα, οὐ τίκτουσα· ῥῆξον καὶ βόησον, οὐκ ὠδίνουσα· ὅτι πολλὰ τὰ τέκνα τῆς ἐρήμου μᾶλλον τῆς ἐχούσης τὸν ἄνδρα. 27 As Isaiah said , Rejoice , O childless woman , you who have never given birth ! Break into a joyful shout , you who have never been in labor ! For the desolate woman now has more {NEQ} children than the woman who lives with her husband !  * 
Gal.4:28 28ὑμεῖς δέ, ἀδελφοί, κατὰ Ἰσαάκ, ἐπαγγελίας τέκνα ἐστέ. 28 And you , dear brothers and sisters , are children of the promise , just like Isaac .
Gal.4:31 31διό, ἀδελφοί, οὐκ ἐσμὲν παιδίσκης τέκνα, ἀλλὰ τῆς ἐλευθέρας. 31 So , dear brothers and sisters , we are not children of the slave woman ; {NEQ} we are children of the free woman .
Eph.2:3 3ἐν οἷς καὶ ἡμεῖς πάντες ἀνεστράφημέν ποτε, ἐν ταῖς ἐπιθυμίαις τῆς σαρκὸς ἡμῶν ποιοῦντες τὰ θελήματα τῆς σαρκὸς καὶ τῶν διανοιῶν· καὶ ἤμεθα τέκνα φύσει ὀργῆς, ὡς καὶ οἱ λοιποί· 3 {NEQ} {RPT} All of us used to live that way , following the passionate desires and {NEQ} inclinations of {NEQ} our {NEQ} sinful nature . {NEQ} By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger , just like everyone else .
Eph.5:1 1γίνεσθε οὖν μιμηταὶ τοῦ θεοῦ, ὡς τέκνα ἀγαπητά· 5:1 Imitate {NEQ} God , therefore , in everything you do , because you are his dear children .
Eph.5:8 8ἦτε γάρ ποτε σκότος, νῦν δὲ φῶς ἐν κυρίῳ· ὡς τέκνα φωτὸς περιπατεῖτε· 8 For once you were full of darkness , but now you have light from the Lord . So live as people of light !
Eph.6:1 1τὰ τέκνα, ὑπακούετε τοῖς γονεῦσιν ὑμῶν ἐν κυρίῳ, τοῦτο γάρ ἐστιν δίκαιον. 6:1 {NEQ} Children , obey your {NEQ} parents because you belong to the Lord ,  *  for this is the right thing to do .

Phil.2:15 15ἵνα γένησθε ἄμεμπτοι καὶ ἀκέραιοι· τέκνα θεοῦ ἄμωμα, μέσον γενεᾶς σκολιᾶς καὶ διεστραμμένης ἐν οἷς φαίνεσθε ὡς φωστῆρες ἐν κόσμῳ· 15 so that no one can criticize you . {NEQ} Live clean , innocent lives as children of God , {RPT} shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people .
Phil.2:22 22τὴν δὲ δοκιμὴν αὐτοῦ γινώσκετε· ὅτι ὡς πατρὶ τέκνον σὺν ἐμοὶ ἐδούλευσεν εἰς τὸ εὐαγγέλιον. 22 But you know how Timothy has proved himself . {NEQ} Like a son with his father , he has served with me in preaching the Good News .
Col.3:20 20τὰ τέκνα, ὑπακούετε τοῖς γονεῦσιν κατὰ πάντα, τοῦτο γὰρ εὐάρεστόν ἐστιν ἐν κυρίῳ. 20 {NEQ} Children , always obey your parents , for this pleases the Lord .
Col.3:21 21οἱ πατέρες, μὴ ἐρεθίζετε τὰ τέκνα ὑμῶν, ἵνα μὴ ἀθυμῶσιν. 21 {NEQ} Fathers , do not aggravate your {NEQ} children , or they will become discouraged .
1Thes.2:7 7δυνάμενοι ἐν βάρει εἶναι ὡς Χριστοῦ ἀπόστολοι, ἀλλὰ ἐγενήθημεν νήπιοι ἐν μέσῳ ὑμῶν· ὡς ἐὰν τροφὸς θάλπῃ τὰ ἑαυτῆς τέκνα· 7 As apostles of Christ we certainly had a right to make some demands of you , but instead we were like children  *  among you . Or we were like a mother feeding and caring for her own {NEQ} children .
