Proverbs 3:1-2According to Exodus 20:12, God promises long life to those who honor their parents.
My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
Proverbs 4:10Compare 4:10 with Ephesians 6:2.
Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.
For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.
The fear of the LORD prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.
The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.
For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.
The prince that wanteth understanding is also a great oppressor: but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days.
