Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Discipline your children, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to their death.
Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
Hear my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
Don’t hold back correction from a child. If you correct them, they won’t die. So correct them. Then you will save them from death.
These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
Children are going to do foolish things. But correcting them will drive that foolishness far away.
