Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.
Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.
But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children,
The righteous who walks in his integrity—blessed are his children after him!
for the Lord reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.
who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases,
The living, the living, he thanks you, as I do this day; the father makes known to the children your faithfulness.
Grandchildren are the crown of the aged, and the glory of children is their fathers.
What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you.
