Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuses instruction: but he that regards reproof shall be honored.
As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.
A fool despises his father's instruction: but he that regards reproof is prudent.
In vain have I smitten your children; they received no correction: your own sword has devoured your prophets, like a destroying lion.
O LORD, are not your eyes upon the truth? you have stricken them, but they have not grieved; you have consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return.
But you shall say unto them, This is a nation that obeys not the voice of the LORD their God, nor receives correction: truth has perished, and is cut off from their mouth.
Woe to her that is rebellious and defiled, to the oppressing city! She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in the LORD; she drew not near to her God.
