||For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and
reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
||He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and
he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot.
||Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise
man, and he will love thee.
||Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that
hateth reproof is brutish.
||A fool despiseth his father's instruction: but he that
regardeth reproof is prudent.
||Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way:
and he that hateth reproof shall die.
||A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will
he go unto the wise.
||He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but
he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.
||A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred
stripes into a fool.
||Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod
of correction shall drive it far from him.
||But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good
blessing shall come upon them.
||As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so
is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.
||Open rebuke is better than secret love.
||He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour
than he that flattereth with the tongue.
||He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall
suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
||The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to
himself bringeth his mother to shame.
