1 Timothy 4:12
Let no man despise your youth; but be an example of the believers, in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
He that carefully brings up his servant from a child shall have him become his son in the end.
Will you not from this time cry unto me, My father, you are the guide of my youth?
[A song of ascents.] Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say:
Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.
Moab has been at ease from his youth, and he has settled on his dregs, and has not been emptied from vessel to vessel, neither has he gone into captivity: therefore his taste remained in him, and his scent is not changed.
I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up: while I suffer your terrors I am distracted.
2 Samuel 19:7
Now therefore arise, go forth, and speak kindly unto your servants: for I swear by the LORD, if you go not forth, there will not tarry one with you this night: and that will be worse unto you than all the evil that befell you from your youth until now.
