|Prov. 3:12 |
12 For whom the LORD loves He corrects, Just as a father the son in whom he delights.
1 Hear, my children, the instruction of a father, and give attention to know understanding; 2 For I give you good doctrine: Do not forsake my law. 3 When I was my father's son, Tender and the only one in the sight of my mother, 4 He also taught me, and said to me: "Let your heart retain my words; Keep my commands, and live. 5 Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth. 6 Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; Love her, and she will keep you. 7 Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. and in all your getting, get understanding. 8 Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor, when you embrace her. 9 She will place on your head an ornament of grace; A crown of glory she will deliver to you." 10 Hear, my son, and receive my sayings, and the years of your life will be many. 11 I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths. 12 When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble. 13 Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; Keep her, for she is your life.
1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom; Lend your ear to my understanding, 2 that you may preserve discretion, and your lips may keep knowledge.
7 Therefore hear me now, my children, and do not depart from the words of my mouth.
20 My son, keep your father's command, and do not forsake the law of your mother. 21 Bind them continually upon your heart; Tie them around your neck. 22 When you roam, they will lead you; When you sleep, they will keep you; and when you awake, they will speak with you. 23 For the commandment is a lamp, and the law a light; Reproofs of instruction are the way of life, 24 To keep you from the evil woman, From the flattering tongue of a seductress.
|Prov. 7:1 |
1 My son, keep my words, and treasure my commands within you.
1 The proverbs of Solomon: A wise son makes a glad father, but a foolish son is the grief of his mother.
1 A wise son heeds his father's instruction, but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.
Prov. 13:22, 24
22 A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children, but the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous. 24 He who spares his rod hates his son, but he who loves him disciplines him promptly.
26 In the fear of the LORD there is strong confidence, and His children will have a place of refuge.
5 A fool despises his father's instruction, but he who receives correction is prudent.
20 A wise son makes a father glad, but a foolish man despises his mother.
2 A wise servant will rule over a son who causes shame, and will share an inheritance among the brothers.
6 Children's children are the crown of old men, and the glory of children is their father.
25 A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her who bore him.
13 A foolish son is the ruin of his father, and the contentions of a wife are a continual dripping.
18 Chasten your son while there is hope, and do not set your heart on his destruction.
26 He who mistreats his father and chases away his mother Is a son who causes shame and brings reproach. 27 Cease listening to instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge.
7 The righteous man walks in his integrity; His children are blessed after him.
11 Even a child is known by his deeds, whether what he does is pure and right.
20 Whoever curses his father or his mother, His lamp will be put out in deep darkness.
6 Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
15 Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of correction will drive it far from him.
13 Do not withhold correction from a child, for if you beat him with a rod, he will not die. 14 You shall beat him with a rod, and deliver his soul from hell. 15 My son, if your heart is wise, my heart will rejoice - indeed, I myself; 16 Yes, my inmost being will rejoice when your lips speak right things.
22 Listen to your father who begot you, and do not despise your mother when she is old.
24 The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice, and he who begets a wise child will delight in him.
7 Whoever keeps the law is a discerning son, but a companion of gluttons shames his father.
24 Whoever robs his father or his mother, and says, "It is no transgression," The same is companion to a destroyer.
3 Whoever loves wisdom makes his father rejoice, but a companion of harlots wastes his wealth.
Prov. 29:15, 17
15 The rod and rebuke give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother. 17 Correct your son, and he will give you rest; Yes, he will give delight to your soul.
21 He who pampers his servant from childhood will have him as a son in the end.
11 There is a generation that curses its father, and does not bless its mother.
17 The eye that mocks his father, and scorns obedience to his mother, the ravens of the valley will pick it out, and the young eagles will eat it.
