Poverty and shame are for those who ignore correction, but whoever listens to instruction gains honor.
Like a gold earring and a necklace of pure gold is a wise reprover to a listening ear.
A fool rejects his father's instructions, but anyone who respects reproof acts sensibly.
"I've punished your children with no results, they have accepted no discipline. Your sword has devoured your prophets like a destroying lion."
LORD, don't your eyes look for truth? You struck them, but they didn't flinch. You brought them to an end, but they refused to receive discipline. They made their faces harder than stone, and they refused to repent.
You will say to them, "This is the nation that wouldn't listen to the voice of the LORD its God and wouldn't accept correction. Truth has perished; it has been eliminated from their discussions.'
Woe to this filthy, polluted, and oppressive city! It won't obey anyone. It won't accept discipline. It does not trust in the LORD. It does not approach God.
