17 Whoever heeds instruction is on dthe path to life,
but he who rejects reproof leads others astray.
1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
1 A wise son hears his father’s instruction,
but qa scoffer does not listen to rebuke.
18 Poverty and disgrace come to him who tignores instruction,
but mwhoever heeds reproof is prudent.
10 There is rsevere discipline for him who forsakes the way;
swhoever hates reproof will die.
he will not go to the wise.
will dwell among the wise.
but he who listens to reproof igains intelligence.
10 A rebuke goes deeper into a man of understanding
than a hundred blows into a fool.
20 Listen to advice and accept instruction,
that you may gain wisdom in hthe future.
27 Cease to hear instruction, my son,
vand you will stray from the words of knowledge.
30 xBlows that wound cleanse away evil;
strokes make clean tthe innermost parts.
12 Apply your heart to instruction
and your ear to words of knowledge.
