How happy is every one that revereth Yahweh, who walketh in his ways!
The labour of thine own hands, surely thou shalt eat. How happy thou, and well for thine!
A virtuous woman, who can find? for, far beyond corals, is her worth.
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.
He that withholdeth his rod, hateth his son,but, he that loveth him, carefully correcteth him.
Hear, my son, the correction of thy father, and do not reject the instruction of thy mother;
For, a wreath of beauty, shall they be to thy head, and chains of ornament, to thy neck.
A wise son, maketh a glad father,but, a dullard, despiseth his own mother.
Only take thou heed to thyself and keep thy soul diligently, so that thou forget not the things which thine own eyes have seen, and so that they go not out of thy heart, all the days of thy life,but thou shalt make them known unto thy sons and unto thy sons sons:
4 Love, is patient, is gracious. Love, is not envious, vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Acteth not unbecomingly, seeketh not her own things, is not easily provoked, imputeth not that which is base,
6 Rejoiceth not over unrighteousness, but rejoiceth in sympathy with truth,
7 All things, covereth, all things, believeth, all things, hopeth, all things, endureth.
Train up a youth, in the direction of his duty, even when he becometh old, he will not depart from it.
Ye children, be obedient unto your parents in the Lord , for this is right:
Honour thy father and thy mother,which indeed is the first commandment with promise,
That it may come to be, well with thee, and thou shalt be long-lived upon the land.
25 Strength and dignity, are her clothing, and she laugheth at the time to come:
26 Her mouth, she openeth with wisdom, and, the instruction of kindness, is on her tongue:
27 She looketh well to the goings of her household, and, the bread of idleness, will she not eat.
28 Her children rise up, and call her happy! her husband, and he praiseth her:
29 Many daughters, have done virtuously, but, thou, excellest them all!
30 Deceitful is loveliness and vain is beauty, The woman that revereth Yahweh, she, shall be praised:
Lo! an inheritance from Yahweh, are children, A reward, the fruit of the womb:
As one whom, his mother, consoleth, So, will, I, console you, And in Jerusalem, shall ye be consoled.
