Blessed is every one that fears the LORD; that walks in his ways.
For you shall eat the labour of yours hands: happy shall you be, and it shall be well with you.
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
Honour your father and your mother: that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God gives you.
He that spares his rod hates his son: but he that loves him chastens him early.
My son, hear the instruction of your father, and forsake not the law of your mother:
For they shall be an ornament of grace unto your head, and chains about your neck.
A wise son makes a glad father: but a foolish man despises his mother.
Only take heed to yourself, and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things which yours eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life: but teach them your sons, and your sons' sons;
4 Love (o. agape) suffers long, and is kind; love (o. agape) envies not; love (o. agape) vaunts not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil;
6 Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
Honour your father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
That it may be well with you, and you may live long on the earth.
25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looks well to the ways of her household, and eats not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but you excel them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that fears 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 comforts, so will I comfort you; and all of you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
