20 Now, while yet he was holding afar off, his father saw him, and was moved with compassion, and, running, fell upon his neck, and tenderly kissed him.
21 And the son said unto himFather! I have sinned against heaven, and before thee: No longer, am I worthy to be called a son of thine, make me as one of thy hired servants.
22 But the father said unto his servantsQuick! bring forth a robethe best! and put on him, and get out a ring for his hand, and sandals for his feet.
23 And be bringing the fatted calf, sacrifice! and let us eat and make merry:
Lo! an inheritance from Yahweh, are children, A reward, the fruit of the womb:
As arrows in the hand of a warrior, so, are the children of young men.
How happy the man who hath filled his quiver with them! They will not be ashamed, but will speak with enemies in the gate.
He that withholdeth his rod, hateth his son,but, he that loveth him, carefully correcteth him.
Be on the watch, stand firm in the faith, be menbe strong;
But, if it be, a vexation, in your eyes, to serve Yahweh, choose ye for yourselves, to-day, whom ye will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served, that were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye are dwelling,but, I and my house, will serve Yahweh.
Greatly shall exult, the father of a righteous man, and, he that begetteth a wise son, shall rejoice in him:
As for a righteous man, walking in his integrity, how happy are his children after him!
Honour thy father, and thy mother,that thy days may be prolonged upon the soil, which Yahweh thy God is about to give unto thee.
In the reverence of Yahweh, is strong security, and, his children, shall have a place of refuge.
Train up a youth, in the direction of his duty, even when he becometh old, he will not depart from it.
