Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth.
My son, forget not my law; But let thy heart keep my commandments:
And he taught me, and said unto me: Let thy heart retain my words; Keep my commandments, and live;
Whoso loveth correction loveth knowledge; But he that hateth reproof is brutish.
Incline thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, And apply thy heart unto my knowledge.
Every one therefore that heareth these words of mine, and doeth them, shall be likened unto a wise man, who built his house upon the rock:
But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things that were heard, lest haply we drift away from them .
2 Peter 1:5
Yea, and for this very cause adding on your part all diligence, in your faith supply virtue; and in your virtue knowledge;
But ye have set at nought all my counsel, And would none of my reproof:
And say, How have I hated instruction, And my heart despised reproof;
There is grievous correction for him that forsaketh the way; And he that hateth reproof shall die.
He that being often reproved hardeneth his neck Shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
2 Chronicles 25:16
And it came to pass, as he talked with him, that the king'said unto him, Have we made thee of the king's counsel? forbear; why shouldest thou be smitten? Then the prophet forbare, and said, I know that God hath determined to destroy thee, because thou hast done this, and hast not hearkened unto my counsel.
See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not when they refused him that warned them on earth, much more'shall not we escape who turn away from him that warneth from heaven:
Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that is was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thy hands?
