Reproving the Wise

These are some reinforcements to the last couple of blog posts!

for the LORD reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights. – Proverbs 3:12

8 Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you; reprove a wise man, and he will love you.
9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning. – Proverbs 9:8-9

A wise son hears his father’s instruction, but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke. – Proverbs 13:1

A scoffer does not like to be reproved; he will not go to the wise. – Proverbs 15:12

A rebuke goes deeper into a man of understanding than a hundred blows into a fool. – Proverbs 17:10

Like a gold ring or an ornament of gold is a wise reprover to a listening ear. – Proverbs 25:12

5 Better is open rebuke than hidden love.
6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy. – Proverbs 27:5-6

He who is often reproved, yet stiffens his neck, will suddenly be broken beyond healing. – Proverbs 29:1
