“Now it shall come about when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write for himself a copy of this law on a scroll in the presence of the Levitical priests.
This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
Your word I have treasured in my heart,
That I may not sin against You.

And reproofs for discipline are the way of life
“Heed instruction and be wise,
And do not neglect it.
To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn.
Seek from the book of the Lord, and read:
Not one of these will be missing;
None will lack its mate.
For His mouth has commanded,
And His Spirit has gathered them.
“The wise men are put to shame,
They are dismayed and caught;
Behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord,
And what kind of wisdom do they have?
But Jesus answered and said to them, “You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures nor the power of God.

Now the passage of Scripture which he was reading was this:
“He was led as a sheep to slaughter;
And as a lamb before its shearer is silent,

2 Timothy 3:14
You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them,
2 Peter 1:19
So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts.
For it is not an idle word for you; indeed it is your life. And by this word you will prolong your days in the land, which you are about to cross the Jordan to possess.”
You will make known to me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.
He asked life of You,
You gave it to him,
Length of days forever and ever.
For with You is the fountain of life;
In Your light we see light.
It is like the dew of Hermon
Coming down upon the mountains of Zion;
For there the Lord commanded the blessing—life forever.
