To have a fool for a child brings grief; there is no joy for the parent of a godless fool.
King James Bible
He that begetteth a fool doeth it to his sorrow: and the father of a fool hath no joy.
American Standard Version
He that begetteth a fool doeth it to his sorrow; And the father of a fool hath no joy.
Young's Literal Translation
