Sirach 3:3-9,14-17


3 Those who honour their father atone for sins,
4   and those who respect their mother are like those who lay up treasure.
5 Those who honour their father will have joy in their own children,
   and when they pray they will be heard.
6 Those who respect their father will have long life,
   and those who honour* their mother obey the Lord;
7   they will serve their parents as their masters.*
8 Honour your father by word and deed,
   that his blessing may come upon you.
9 For a father’s blessing strengthens the houses of the children,
   but a mother’s curse uproots their foundations.
14 For kindness to a father will not be forgotten,
   and will be credited to you against your sins;
15 in the day of your distress it will be remembered in your favour;
   like frost in fair weather, your sins will melt away.
16 Whoever forsakes a father is like a blasphemer,
   and whoever angers a mother is cursed by the Lord.

Humility


17 My child, perform your tasks with humility;*
   then you will be loved by those whom God accepts.
