Proverbs 17:10; Proverbs 17:26; Proverbs 19:25; Proverbs 23:13-14; Proverbs 23:35 (New American Standard)
A rebuke goes deeper into one who has understanding Than a hundred blows into a fool.
It is also not good to fine the righteous, Nor to strike the noble for their uprightness.
Strike a scoffer and the naive may become shrewd, But reprove one who has understanding and he will gain knowledge.
Do not hold back discipline from the child, Although you strike him with the rod, he will not die.
You shall strike him with the rod And rescue his soul from Sheol.
"They struck me, but I did not become ill ; They beat me, but I did not know it. When shall I awake ? I will seek another drink."
