The Proverbs of Solomon: A wise child makes a father rejoice, but a foolish child is a grief to his mother.
The man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father, but whoever associates with prostitutes wastes his wealth.
A rod and reproof impart wisdom, but a child who is unrestrained brings shame to his mother.
My child, if your heart is wise, then my heart also will be glad;
Whoever brings a fool into the world does so to his grief, and the father of a fool has no joy.
A foolish child is the ruin of his father, and a contentious wife is like a constant dripping.
The father of a righteous person will rejoice greatly; whoever fathers a wise child will have joy in him.
Who knows if he will be a wise man or a fool? Yet he will be master over all the fruit of my labor for which I worked so wisely on earth! This also is futile!
