11 sMy son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline
or be weary of his reproof,
12 for the Lord reproves him whom he loves,
as ta father the son in whom he delights.
17 Whoever heeds instruction is on dthe path to life,
but he who rejects reproof leads others astray.
12 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
18 Poverty and disgrace come to him who tignores instruction,
24 cWhoever spares the rod hates his son,
but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.1
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.
but he who listens to reproof igains intelligence.
18 fDiscipline your son, for there is hope;
do not set your heart on gputting him to death.
30 xBlows that wound cleanse away evil;
strokes make clean tthe innermost parts.
6 wTrain up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
15 Folly is bound up in the heart of a child,
but nthe rod of discipline drives it far from him.
13 Do not withhold ndiscipline from a child;
oif you strike him with a rod, he will not die.
14 If you strike him with the rod,
you will psave his soul from Sheol.
15 vThe rod and reproof give wisdom,
but a child left to himself wbrings shame to his mother.
17 yDiscipline your son, and he will give you rest;
he will give delight to your heart.
19 By mere words a servant is not disciplined,
for though he understands, he will not respond.
21 Whoever pampers his servant from childhood
will in the end find him his heir.1
