Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”
All your children shall be taught by the Lord, And great shall be the peace of your children.
Their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles, And their offspring among the people. All who see them shall acknowledge them, That they are the posterity whom the Lord has blessed.”
And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth.
Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine In the very heart of your house, Your children like olive plants All around your table.
Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of correction will drive it far from him.
