Treasury of Scripture
He that refuses instruction despises his own soul: but he that hears reproof gets understanding.
Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed, …
Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not…
instruction or correction
He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.
O LORD, are not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return.
And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: …
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: …
The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness…
Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing he hath no heart to it?
The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.
20 Listen to advice and accept correction, and in the end you will be wise.
21 People can make all kinds of plans, but only the Lord's plan will happen.
22 People want others to be loyal, so it is better to be poor than to be a liar.
23 Those who respect the Lord will live and be satisfied, unbothered by trouble.
24 Though the lazy person puts his hand in the dish, he won't lift the food to his mouth.
25 Whip those who make fun of wisdom, and perhaps foolish people will gain some wisdom. Correct those with understanding, and they will gain knowledge.
26 A son who robs his father and sends away his mother brings shame and disgrace on himself.
27 Don't stop listening to correction, my child, or you will forget what you have already learned.
28 An evil witness makes fun of fairness, and wicked people love what is evil.
29 People who make fun of wisdom will be punished, and the backs of foolish people will be beaten.

20 Bible Verses Parents Can Use to Correct Their Kids
Recently we asked our readers to give us their favorite Bible verses they use time and time again when they correct their children. We received a number of e-mails, comments, and replies on social media.

Parenting with Proverbs
What strikes me about many of these verses is how most of them are “proverbial.” The Bible is full of proverbs and proverb-like statements—short, memorable sayings of about practical and godly living.
The Book of Proverbs in the Bible is uniquely suited to help parents in moments of correction. Proverbs was written “to give prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the youth” (Proverbs 1:4). The heart of the book is intensely personal and fatherly.
Proverbs are ideal for moments of correction because…
- Proverbs are short, memorable, and quotable.
- Proverbs don’t just tell you how to live; they tell you why.
- Proverbs are based on real-life experience.
- Proverbs are God’s own words, not just yours.
This is what inspired me to write Parenting with Proverbs: The Art of Biblical Correction Using Biblical Wisdom.
