Most Relevant Verses
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”
Behold, children are a gift of the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;
They will not be ashamed
When they speak with their enemies in the gate.
Train up a child in the way he should go,
Even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Fathers, do not exasperate your children, so that they will not lose heart.
Do not hold back discipline from the child,
Although you strike him with the rod, he will not die.
You shall strike him with the rod
And rescue his soul from Sheol.
My son, do not reject the discipline of the Lord
Or loathe His reproof,
For whom the Lord loves He reproves,
Even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.
Listen to your father who begot you,
And do not despise your mother when she is old.
