22 Listen with respect to the father who raised you,
and when your mother grows old, don't neglect her.
23 Buy truth — don't sell it for love or money;
buy wisdom, buy education, buy insight.
24 Parents rejoice when their children turn out well;
wise children become proud parents.
25 So make your father happy!
Make your mother proud!
