Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you (Exodus 20:12)Happy Mother's Day to all the godly mothers who read BibChr! Hope your children (and husbands) honored you appropriately!
He who ... chases away his mother
is a son who brings shame and reproach (Proverbs 19:26)
Let your... mother be glad;
let her who bore you rejoice (Proverbs 23:25)
The eye that ... scorns to obey a mother will be picked out by the ravens of the valley
and eaten by the vultures (Proverbs 30:17)
Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
"Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all."
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates (Proverbs 31:28-31)
