3He that teacheth his son grieveth the enemy: and before his friends he shall rejoice of him. 4Though his father die, yet he is as though he were not dead: for he hath left one behind him that is like himself. 5While he lived, he saw and rejoiced in him: and when he died, he was not sorrowful. 6He left behind him an avenger against his enemies, and one that shall requite kindness to his friends.7He that maketh too much of his son shall bind up his wounds; and his bowels will be troubled at every cry. 8An horse not broken becometh headstrong: and a child left to himself will be wilful. 9Cocker thy child, and he shall make thee afraid: play with him, and he will bring thee to heaviness.
