Proverbs 13:1, 3, 11-12, 24 ESV
A wise son hears his father’s instruction,
but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.
Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life;
he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.
Wealth gained hastily will dwindle,
but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.
Whoever spares the rod hates his son,
but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.
