6 Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
7 The rich rules over the poor,
and the borrower is the slave of the lender. (ESV)
5 He who gathers in summer is a prudent son,
but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who brings shame. (ESV)
20 Why should you be intoxicated, my son, with a forbidden woman
and embrace the bosom of an adulteress?
21 For a man's ways are before the eyes of the Lord,
and he ponders all his paths.
22 The iniquities of the wicked ensnare him,
and he is held fast in the cords of his sin.
23 He dies for lack of discipline,
and because of his great folly he is led astray. (ESV)
7 The one who keeps the law is a son with understanding,
but a companion of gluttons shames his father. (ESV)
3 He who loves wisdom makes his father glad,
but a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth. (ESV)
15 Folly is bound up in the heart of a child,
but the rod of discipline drives it far from him. (ESV)
13 Do not withhold discipline from a child;
if you strike him with a rod, he will not die.
14 If you strike him with the rod,
you will save his soul from Sheol. (ESV)
