Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD, that walketh in his ways.
For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
A virtuous woman who can find? for her price is far above rubies.
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.
My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
For they shall be a chaplet of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish man despiseth his mother.
Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes saw, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life; but make them known unto thy children and thy children’s children;
4 Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not its own, is not provoked, taketh not account of evil;
6 rejoiceth not in unrighteousness, but rejoiceth with the truth;
7 beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
Train up a child in the way he should go, and even when he is old he will not depart from it.
1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
2 Honour thy father and mother (which is the first commandment with promise),
3 that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
25 Strength and dignity are her clothing; and she laugheth at the time to come.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and the law of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up, and call her blessed; her husband also , and he praiseth her, saying :
29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
