Listen to your father who begot you,
and do not show contempt fora your mother when she is old. Bible
a[22]
“Have contempt for; count as insignificant, despise.”

“despise.” The Hebrew word is buz (#0936 בּוּז pronounced booze), and it means “to despise, to have contempt for, to count as insignificant. There is no good way to bring all those meanings into English except to do some kind of amplified version, yet all those meanings are important and applicable in this context.
