2 for the Lord has given fathers authority over their children and given children the obligation to obey their mothers.3 If you respect your father, you can make up for your sins,4 and if you honor your mother, you are earning great wealth.5 If you respect your father, one day your own children will make you happy; the Lord will hear your prayers.6 If you obey the Lord by honoring your father and making your mother happy, you will live a long life.
12 My child, take care of your father when he grows old; give him no cause for worry as long as he lives.13 Be sympathetic even if his mind fails him; don't look down on him just because you are strong and healthy.14 The Lord will not forget the kindness you show to your father; it will help you make up for your sins.
