|« Fathers, Turn Your Hearts!||None||The Role Of The Mother »|
6 And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the land with a decree of utter destruction.” (ESV)
19 Hear, my son, and be wise,
and direct your heart in the way.
20 Be not among drunkards
or among gluttonous eaters of meat,
21 for the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty,
and slumber will clothe them with rags.
22 Listen to your father who gave you life,
and do not despise your mother when she is old. (ESV)
26 My son, give me your heart,
and let your eyes observe my ways. (ESV)
13:1 A wise son hears his father's instruction,
but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke. (ESV)
5 A fool despises his father's instruction,
but whoever heeds reproof is prudent. (ESV)
5 He who gathers in summer is a prudent son,
but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who brings shame. (ESV)
6 Go to the ant, O sluggard;
consider her ways, and be wise.
7 Without having any chief,
officer, or ruler,
8 she prepares her bread in summer
and gathers her food in harvest.
9 How long will you lie there, O sluggard?
When will you arise from your sleep?
10 A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest,
11 and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
and want like an armed man. (ESV)
20 Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise,
but the companion of fools will suffer harm. (ESV)
24 Whoever robs his father or his mother
and says, “That is no transgression,”
is a companion to a man who destroys. (ESV)
20 If one curses his father or his mother,
his lamp will be put out in utter darkness. (ESV)
17 The eye that mocks a father
and scorns to obey a mother
will be picked out by the ravens of the valley
and eaten by the vultures. (ESV)
26 He who does violence to his father and chases away his mother
is a son who brings shame and reproach. (ESV)
10:1 The proverbs of Solomon.
A wise son makes a glad father,
but a foolish son is a sorrow to his mother. (ESV)
25 A foolish son is a grief to his father
and bitterness to her who bore him. (ESV)
20 My son, keep your father's commandment,
and forsake not your mother's teaching. (ESV)
10 My son, if sinners entice you,
do not consent. (ESV)
20 My son, be attentive to my words;
incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Let them not escape from your sight;
keep them within your heart.
22 For they are life to those who find them,
and healing to all their flesh. (ESV)
12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. (ESV)
3 Every one of you shall revere his mother and his father, and you shall keep my Sabbaths: I am the Lord your God. (ESV)
6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), 3 “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” (ESV)
18 “If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not obey the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and, though they discipline him, will not listen to them, 19 then his father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city at the gate of the place where he lives, 20 and they shall say to the elders of his city, ‘This our son is stubborn and rebellious; he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard.’ 21 Then all the men of the city shall stone him to death with stones. So you shall purge the evil from your midst, and all Israel shall hear, and fear. (ESV)
20 Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. (ESV)
12:1 Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near of which you will say, “I have no pleasure in them”; 2 before the sun and the light and the moon and the stars are darkened and the clouds return after the rain, 3 in the day when the keepers of the house tremble, and the strong men are bent, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those who look through the windows are dimmed, 4 and the doors on the street are shut—when the sound of the grinding is low, and one rises up at the sound of a bird, and all the daughters of song are brought low— 5 they are afraid also of what is high, and terrors are in the way; the almond tree blossoms, the grasshopper drags itself along, and desire fails, because man is going to his eternal home, and the mourners go about the streets— 6 before the silver cord is snapped, or the golden bowl is broken, or the pitcher is shattered at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern, 7 and the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it. (ESV)
