Ben Sira 3:12-14 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
12 My son, be steadfast in honoring your father;
do not grieve him as long as he lives.
13 Even if his mind fails, be considerate of him;
do not revile him because you are in your prime.
14 Kindness to a father will not be forgotten;
it will serve as a sin offering—it will take lasting root.
