1 Whoever loves his son will beat him frequently so that in after years the son may be his comfort.
2 Whoever is strict with his son will reap the benefit, and be able to boast of him to his acquaintances.
5 In life he has had the joy of his company, dying, he has no anxieties.
10 Do not laugh with him, or one day you will weep with him and end up gnashing your teeth.
12 Bend his neck in youth, bruise his ribs while he is a child, or else he will grow stubborn and disobedient, and hurt you very deeply.
13 Be strict with your son, and persevere with him, or you will rue his insolence.
15 Health and strength are better than any gold, a robust body than untold wealth.
18 Good things lavished on a closed mouth are like food offerings put on a grave.
22 Gladness of heart is life to anyone, joy is what gives length of days.
24 Jealousy and anger shorten your days, and worry brings premature old age.
