The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness.
And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.
Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I am the LORD.
The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the gray head.
With us are both the grayheaded and very aged men, much elder than thy father.
Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth it not: yea, gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he knoweth not.
And he said, My son shall not go down with you; for his brother is dead, and he is left alone: if mischief befall him by the way in the which ye go, then shall ye bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.
And if ye take this also from me, and mischief befall him, ye shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.
It shall come to pass, when he seeth that the lad is not with us, that he will die: and thy servants shall bring down the gray hairs of thy servant our father with sorrow to the grave.
The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.
1 Samuel 12:2
And now, behold, the king walketh before you: and I am old and grayheaded; and, behold, my sons are with you: and I have walked before you from my childhood unto this day.
Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.
1 Kings 2:6
Do therefore according to thy wisdom, and let not his hoar head go down to the grave in peace.
1 Kings 2:9
Now therefore hold him not guiltless: for thou art a wise man, and knowest what thou oughtest to do unto him; but his hoar head bring thou down to the grave with blood.
