    A friend will be corrected by my Holy Father. It is written, The blueness of a wound cleanses away evil: so do stripes the inward parts of the belly. Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beat him with the rod, he shall not die. but Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
