:B:1 The man who loves his son makes use of the rod
4 If such a father dies it is as if he had not died, for he leaves behind him another man like himself. 5 In life he had the joy of his company and he is not sorrowful when death comes.
6 He leaves it to his family to take revenge on his enemies and to return gifts to his friends.
7 The man who coddles his son will be constantly bandaging his wounds
8 Just as a badly broken-in horse can not be mounted, so a spoiled son be comes in solent. 9 Pamper your child and later he will terrify you
10 Do not laugh at him lest you have to suffer and grind your teeth. 11 Do not let him be independent as a child, 12 but rather bruise his ribs while he is still young, lest he grow stubborn and re fuse to obey.
13 Be strict with your son and persevere in this, so as not to suffer because of his misconduct.
14 Better a poor man healthy and fit, than a rich man tormented in body.
15 Health and vigor are worth more than gold, a robust body, more than great wealth. 16 No riches are preferable to physical well-being, and no joy is greater than a cheerful heart.
17 Death is better than a wretched life and eternal rest preferable to lasting sickness.
18 Dishes of food placed on an empty tomb are like good things offered to one who cannot eat.
19 What good is a sacrifice offered to an idol? It can neither eat nor smell. So is it with the one whom the Lord has stricken
21 Do not give yourself over to sadness or torment yourself with brooding.
22 Joy of heart is life to a man
23 Delight your soul and console your heart
24 Jealousy and anger shorten your life
25 A cheerful and kindly person will have a good appetite and enjoy his food.
