22Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old.
23Buy the truth and do not sell it— wisdom, instruction and insight as well.
24The father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him.
25May your father and mother rejoice; may she who gave you birth be joyful!
