Matthew 15:26; Proverbs 9:7–8; Proverbs 23:9

26 And he answered, It is not right to take the children’s bread and mthrow it to the dogs.

Whoever corrects a scoffer gets himself abuse,

and he who reproves a wicked man incurs injury.

lDo not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you;

mreprove a wise man, and he will love you.

Do not speak in the hearing of a fool,

for he will despise the good sense of your words.
