“Hast thou children? instruct them, and bow downe their necke from their youth.”

King James Version (KJV)

Ecclesiasticus 7:23

20. Whereas thy seruant worketh truely, entreate him not euill, nor the hireling that bestoweth himselfe wholly for thee. 21. Let thy soule loue a good seruant, and defraud him not of liberty. 22. Hast thou cattell? haue an eye to them, and if they be for thy profit, keepe them with thee. 23. Hast thou children? instruct them, and bow downe their necke from their youth. 24. Hast thou daughters? haue care of their body, and shewe not thy selfe cheerefull toward them. 25. Marrie thy daughter, and so shalt thou haue performed a weightie matter: but giue her to a man of vnderstanding. 26. Hast thou a wife after thy minde? forsake her not, but giue not thy selfe ouer to a light woman.
