Proverbs 23:10-18 NIV

Proverbs 23:10-18

Saying 11

Do not move an ancient boundary stone

or encroach on the fields of the fatherless,

for their Defender is strong;

he will take up their case against you.

Saying 12

Apply your heart to instruction

and your ears to words of knowledge.

Saying 13

Do not withhold discipline from a child;

if you punish them with the rod, they will not die.

Punish them with the rod

and save them from death.

Saying 14

My son, if your heart is wise,

then my heart will be glad indeed;

my inmost being will rejoice

when your lips speak what is right.

Saying 15

Do not let your heart envy sinners,

but always be zealous for the fear of the Lord.

There is surely a future hope for you,

and your hope will not be cut off.
