Proverbs 23:12-22

12 Apply your heart to instruction and your ear to words of knowledge.
13 Do not withhold 1discipline from a child; 2if you strike him with a rod, he will not die.
14 If you strike him with the rod, you will 3save his soul from Sheol.
15 4My son, if your heart is wise, my heart too will be glad.
16 My 5inmost beinga will exult when your lips speak 6what is right.
17 Let not your heart 7envy sinners, but continue in 8the fear of the LORD all the day.
18 Surely 9there is a future, and your 10hope will not be cut off.
19 Hear, my son, and 11be wise, and 12direct your heart in the way.
20 Be not among 13drunkardsb or among 14gluttonous eaters of meat,
21 for the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty, and 15slumber will clothe them with rags
22 16Listen to your father who gave you life, 17and do not despise your mother when she is old.
