And you say, How I hated instruction and discipline, and my heart despised reproof!
He who heeds instruction and correction is [not only himself] in the way of life [but also] is a way of life for others. And he who neglects or refuses reproof [not only himself] goes astray [but also] causes to err and is a path toward ruin for others.
Whoever loves instruction and correction loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is like a brute beast, stupid and indiscriminating.
There is severe discipline for him who forsakes God's way; and he who hates reproof will die [physically, morally, and spiritually].
A wise son heeds [and is the fruit of] his father's instruction and correction, but a scoffer listens not to rebuke.
A scorner has no love for one who rebukes him; neither will he go to the wise [for counsel].
And you treated as nothing all my counsel and would accept none of my reproof,
Would accept none of my counsel, and despised all my reproof,
