The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son makes a glad father; but a foolish son is the sorrow of his mother.
The rod and rebuke give wisdom, but a boy sent off causes shame to his mother.
My son, if your heart is wise, my heart shall rejoice, even mine.
A foolish son is ruin to his father, and the quarreling of a wife is a never-ending dripping.
The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice; and he who fathers a wise child shall have joy from him.
These are also proverbs of Solomon which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied out.
And who knows whether he shall be wise or a fool? Yet he shall have rule over all my labor in which I have labored, and acted wisely under the sun. This is also vanity.
