    and don’t despise your mother when she is old.

    Let her who bore you rejoice!

Saying 17

22 Listen to your father, who gave you life,
    and do not despise your mother when she is old.
23 Buy the truth and do not sell it—

25 May your father and mother rejoice;
    may she who gave you birth be joyful!
