Wisdom is found in the words
The one who refuses correction despises himself,
Listen to advice
A rod and reproof
For the culmination of all things is near. So be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of prayer.
So tell them: ‘This is a nation that has not obeyed the Lord their God and has not accepted correction. Faithfulness is nowhere to be found in it. These people do not even profess it anymore.
I will throw my bird net over them while they are flying, I will bring them down like birds in the sky; I will discipline them when I hear them flocking together.
Instead he must be hospitable, devoted to what is good, sensible, upright, devout, and self-controlled.
Their houses are safe
Whether it is for punishment
Listen to my instruction
If you strike
For I, the Lord, affirm
I, the Lord, tell
It is good for a man
In this way
Encourage younger men likewise to be self-controlled,
I will become his father and he will become my son. When he sins, I will correct him with the rod of men and with wounds inflicted by human beings.
The one who heeds instruction
“It did no good for me to punish your people. They did not respond to such correction. You slaughtered your prophets like a voracious lion.”
