The rod and rebuke give wisdom,
But a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.
He who spares his rod hates his son,
But he who loves him disciplines him promptly.
Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child;
The rod of correction will drive it far from him.

For if you beat him with a rod, he will not die.
You shall beat him with a rod,
And deliver his soul from hell.
'And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.

And they shall say to the elders of his city, 'This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious; he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard.' Then all the men of his city shall stone him to death with stones; so you shall put away the evil from among you, and all Israel shall hear and fear.

Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
For whom the LORD loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.'
"And he who strikes his father or his mother shall surely be put to death.
