9Cocker thy child, and he shall make thee afraid: play with him, and he will bring thee to heaviness. 10Laugh not with him, lest thou have sorrow with him, and lest thou gnash thy teeth in the end. 11Give him no liberty in his youth, and wink not at his follies. 12Bow down his neck while he is young, and beat him on the sides while he is a child, lest he wax stubborn, and be disobedient unto thee, and so bring sorrow to thine heart.13Chastise thy son, and hold him to labour, lest his lewd behaviour be an offence unto thee. 14Better is the poor, being sound and strong of constitution, than a rich man that is afflicted in his body. 15Health and good estate of body are above all gold, and a strong body above infinite wealth.
Bow downe his necke while hee is young, and beate him on the sides while he is a childe, lest hee waxe stubborne, and be disobedient vnto thee, and so bring sorrow to thine heart. - King James Version (1611) - View 1611 Bible Scan
