Proverbs 19:16; Proverbs 19:20; Proverbs 19:25; Proverbs 19:27

16  Whoever bkeeps the commandment keeps his life;

he who despises his ways will die.

20  Listen to advice and accept instruction,

that you may gain wisdom in hthe future.

25  qStrike ra scoffer, and the simple will slearn prudence;

treprove a man of understanding, and he will gain knowledge.

27  Cease to hear instruction, my son,

vand you will stray from the words of knowledge.
