Srimad Bhagavatam Canto-04, Chapter-03, Text-24
tat te niriksyo na pitapi deha-krd
dakso mama dvit tad-anuvratas ca ye
yo visvasrg-yajña-gatam varoru mam
anagasam durvacasakarot tirah

Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
Therefore you should not see your father, although he is the giver of your body, because he and his followers are envious of me. Because of his envy, O most worshipful one, he has insulted me with cruel words although I am innocent.

Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
For a woman, both the husband and the father are equally worshipable. The husband is the protector of a woman during her youthful life, whereas the father is her protector during her childhood. Thus both are worshipable, but especially the father because he is the giver of the body. Lord Siva reminded Sati, “Your father is undoubtedly worshipable, even more than I am, but take care, for although he is the giver of your body he may also be the taker of your body, because when you see your father he may insult you because of your association with me. An insult from a relative is worse than death, especially when one is well situated.”
