Selected Proverbs


14:26      He who fears the Lord has a secure fortress, and for his children it will be a refuge.

20:07      The righteous man leads a blameless life; blessed are his children after him.


10:01 A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son grief to his mother.

15:20 A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish man despises his mother.

17:21 To have a fool for a son brings grief; there is no joy for the father of a fool.

17:25 A foolish son brings grief to his father and bitterness to the one who bore him.


23:15-16 My son, if your heart is wise, then my heart will be glad.  My inmost being will rejoice when your lips speak what is right.

23:22-25 Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old.  Buy the truth and do not sell it; get wisdom, discipline and understanding.  The father of a righteous man has great joy; he who has a wise son delights in him.  May your father and mother be glad; may she who gave you birth rejoice!


22:06 Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.


22:15 Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far from him.

29:15 The rod of correction imparts wisdom, but a child left to himself disgraces his mother.

29:17 Discipline  your son, and he will give you peace; he will bring delight to your soul.

19:18 Discipline your son, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to his death.

23:13 Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you punish him with the rod, he will not die.

23:14 Punish him with the rod and save his soul from death.

13:24 He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him.
