and say, How have I hated chastening and my heart despised reproof
He is in the way of life that gives heed to chastening, but he that refuses reproof errs.
Whosoever loves chastening loves knowledge, but he that hates reproof is carnal.
Chastening is grievous unto him that forsakes the way, but he that hates reproof shall die.
A wise son takes his father's chastening: but a scorner does not hear rebuke.
The scorner does not love the one that reproves him, neither will he go unto the wise.
for because ye have disregarded all my counsel and rejected my reproof:
They rejected my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
