Listen my son to
Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future.
My son, keep your father’s commandment, and forsake not your mother’s teaching.
I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching.
My son, observe the commandment of your father And do not forsake the teaching of your mother.
My son, observe the commandment of your father And do not forsake the teaching of your mother; Bind them continually on your heart; Tie them around your neck.
There is a class of people who curse their fathers and do not bless their mothers.
A wise son hears his father’s instruction, but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.
Listen to me now therefore, O you sons, and be attentive to the words of my mouth.
If you listen too much to what people say about you, you will never be who you really are.
