“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
“Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.”
“Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.”
“Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die.”
“Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.”
4 “Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.
5 Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.”
“Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.”
