And do not abandon the law of your mother;

And the contentions of a wife are a constant dripping.

But a wife who has insight is from Yahweh.

Which your fathers made.

Proverbs 23:22 - 23:25

Listen to your father who begot you,
And do not despise your mother when she is old.
Buy truth, and do not sell it,
Get wisdom and discipline and understanding.

The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice,
And he who begets a wise son will be glad in him.
Let your father and your mother be glad,
And let her rejoice who gave birth to you.

Proverbs 29:3

A man who loves wisdom makes his father glad,
But he who befriends harlots destroys his wealth.
