Blessed is everyone who fears Yahweh, who walks in his ways.
For you will eat the labor of your hands. You will be happy, and it will be well with you.
Who can find a worthy woman? For her value is far above rubies.
“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which Yahweh your God gives you.
One who spares the rod hates his son, but one who loves him is careful to discipline him.
My son, listen to your father’s instruction, and don’t forsake your mother’s teaching;
for they will be a garland to grace your head, and chains around your neck.
A wise son makes a father glad, but a foolish man despises his mother.
Only be careful, and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things which your eyes saw, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life; but make them known to your children and your children’s children—
4 Love is patient and is kind. Love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud,
5 doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil;
6 doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;
7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
2 “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with a promise:
3 “that it may be well with you, and you may live long on the earth.”
25 Strength and dignity are her clothing. She laughs at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom. Kind instruction is on her tongue.
27 She looks well to the ways of her household, and doesn’t eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed. Her husband also praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things, but you excel them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a woman who fears Yahweh, she shall be praised.
Behold, children are a heritage of Yahweh. The fruit of the womb is his reward.
As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you. You will be comforted in Jerusalem.”
