7 and I have seen among nthe simple,
I have perceived among the youths,
a young man olacking sense,
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.
