He that despiseth his neighbour is void of heart; but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.
He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth; but he that is gracious to the afflicted, happy is he.
1 Timothy 4:12-14
Let no one despise thy youth, but be a model of the believers, in word, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give thyself to reading, to exhortation, to teaching. Be not negligent of the gift that is in thee, which has been given to thee through prophecy, with imposition of the hands of the elderhood.
But thou, why judgest thou thy brother? or again, thou, why dost thou make little of thy brother? for we shall all be placed before the judgment-seat of God.
For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him: but when he cried unto him, he heard.
And Amos answered and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was a herdman, and a gatherer of sycamore fruit.
Then said I, O Lord Jehovah, cease, I beseech thee! How shall Jacob arise? for he is small.
Fathers, do not vex your children, to the end that they be not disheartened.
