25 Bible Verses about discipline, in the family

Most Relevant Verses

Hebrews 12:9-11

Furthermore, we had natural fathers discipline us, and we respected them. Shouldn’t we submit even more to the Father of spirits and live? For they disciplined us for a short time based on what seemed good to them, but He does it for our benefit, so that we can share His holiness. No discipline seems enjoyable at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it yields the fruit of peace and righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

Proverbs 23:13-14

Don’t withhold discipline from a youth;
if you beat him with a rod, he will not die. Strike him with a rod,
and you will rescue his life from Sheol.

Deuteronomy 4:9

“Only be on your guard and diligently watch yourselves, so that you don’t forget the things your eyes have seen and so that they don’t slip from your mind as long as you live. Teach them to your children and your grandchildren.

Deuteronomy 31:13

Then their children who do not know the law will listen and learn to fear the Lord your God as long as you live in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess.”

He established a testimony in Jacob
and set up a law in Israel,
which He commanded our fathers
to teach to their children

1 Samuel 3:13

I told him that I am going to judge his family forever because of the iniquity he knows about: his sons are defiling the sanctuary, and he has not stopped them.
