Ben Sira 3:1

1 Listen to me your father, O children; act accordingly, that you may be kept in safety.

Ben Sira 3:1 In-Context

1 Listen to me your father, O children; act accordingly, that you may be kept in safety.
2 For the Lord honors a father above his children, and he confirms a mother's right over her children.
3 Those who honor their father atone for sins,
4 and those who respect their mother are like those who lay up treasure.
5 Those who honor their father will have joy in their own children, and when they pray they will be heard.
