The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth.
Love your parents and treat them with loving care. For you will only know their value when you see their empty chair.
But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great…
