For to those who are dear to him the Lord says sharp words, and makes the son in whom he has delight undergo pain.
But he who does evil to me, does wrong to his soul: all my haters are in love with death.
Give your son training while there is hope; let not your heart be purposing his death.
Foolish ways are deep-seated in the heart of a child, but the rod of punishment will send them far from him.
Do not keep back training from the child: for even if you give him blows with the rod, it will not be death to him.
The rod and sharp words give wisdom: but a child who is not guided is a cause of shame to his mother.
And turning round, he said to them, If any man comes to me, and has not hate for his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, and even for his life, he may not be my disciple.
For the Lord sends punishment on his loved ones; everyone whom he takes as his son has experience of his rod.
