Listen and I will teach you what wise men have said. Study their teachings, and you will be glad if you remember them and can quote them. I want you to put your trust in the Lord; that is why I am going to tell them to you now. I have written down thirty sayings for you. They contain knowledge and good advice, and will teach you what truth really is. Then when you are sent to find it out, you will bring back the right answer.
#16 Listen to your father, without him you would not exist. When you mother is old, show her your appreciation. Truth, wisdom, learning, and good sense---these are worth paying for, but too valuable for you to sell. A righteous man's father has good reason to be happy. You can take pride in a wise son. Let your father and mother be proud of you; give your mother happiness.
