1He that loveth his son causeth him oft to feel the rod, that he may have joy of him in the end. 2He that chastiseth his son shall have joy in him, and shall rejoice of him among his acquaintance. 3He that teacheth his son grieveth the enemy: and before his friends he shall rejoice of him. 4Though his father die, yet he is as though he were not dead: for he hath left one behind him that is like himself.5While he lived, he saw and rejoiced in him: and when he died, he was not sorrowful. 6He left behind him an avenger against his enemies, and one that shall requite kindness to his friends. 7He that maketh too much of his son shall bind up his wounds; and his bowels will be troubled at every cry.
