22Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old .
23Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.24
The father of the righteous shall greatlyrejoice : and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.
Thy father and thy mother shall be glad , and she that bare thee shall rejoice .
My son,give me thine heart, and let thine eyesobserve my ways.27
For a whore is a deepditch; and a strange woman is a narrowpit.28
She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.29
Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions ? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes?30
They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.31Look not thou upon the wine when it is red , when it giveth his colour in the cup , when it moveth itself aright.32
At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingetha like an adder.
