NET © Notes

sn To “despise oneself” means to reject oneself as if there was little value. The one who ignores discipline is not interested in improving himself.

tn Or “heeds” (so NAB, NIV); NASB “listens to.”

tn The Hebrew text reads קוֹנֶה לֵּב (qoneh lev), the participle of קָנָה (qanah, “to acquire; to possess”) with its object, “heart.” The word “heart” is frequently a metonymy of subject, meaning all the capacities of the human spirit and/or mind. Here it refers to the ability to make judgments or discernment.
