Don't put much hope in their future or expect them to live a long time. One child who does the Lord's will is better than a thousand who do not. It is better to go to your grave with no children at all than to have children who are godless.
Believe thou not to the life of them, and behold thou not into the travails of them. For why better is one dreading God, than a thousand wicked sons. And it is more profitable to die without sons, than to leave wicked sons. [Not give thou faith to the life of them, and not behold thou into the travails of them. Better is forsooth one dreading God, than a thousand unpious sons. And profitable it is to die without sons, than to leave unpious sons.]
