Reverence for Parents-Sirach 3:1-16

(Duties towards Parents)



My children, it is your father who speaks, listen to me and follow my advice and so be saved.


For the LORD honours a father over his children; he confirms the right of the mother over her sons.


Whoever respects his father atones for his sins; he who gives honour to his mother prepares a treasure for himself.


Whoever honours his father will receive joy from his own children, and will be heard when he prays.


Whoever glorifies his father will have a long life; whoever obeys the LORD gives comfort to his mother; he will serve his parents as he would serve the LORD.


Honour your father in word and deed, so that his blessing may come on you.


For a father's blessing secures the future of his children, but a mother's curse destroys them at their roots.


Do not rejoice at the humiliation of your father, because his humiliation is no glory to you.


For a man's glory comes from his father's reputation; a mother who is not respected is a disgrace to her children.


My son, take care of your father in his old age, . and do not cause him sorrow as long as he lives.


Even if he has lost his mind, have patience; do not be disrespectful to him while you are in full health.


For kindness done to one's father will never be forgotten, it will serve as reparation for your sins.


In the day of adversity the LORD will remember it to your advantage; for just as ice melts in the heat, so will your sins melt away.


Whoever abandons his father is like a blasphemer; he who annoys his mother is cursed by the LORD.
