||Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and
attend to know understanding.
||For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.
||For I was my father's son, tender and only beloved in the
sight of my mother.
||He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart
retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.
||I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee
in right paths.
||My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my
||My son, if thou be surety for thy friend, if thou hast
stricken thy hand with a stranger,
||The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father:
but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother.
||A wise son heareth his father's instruction: but a
scorner heareth not rebuke.
||Children's children are the crown of old men; and the
glory of children are their fathers.
||A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to
her that bare him.
||A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the
contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.
||House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a
prudent wife is from the LORD.
||Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is
no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer.
