“The rod and reproof give wisdom.
But a mother is disgraced by a neglected child.
When the wicked are in authority,
But the righteous will look upon their downfall.
Discipline your children.
They will give you rest.
They will give delight to your heart.”
The children who get beat with the rod and rebuked will get wisdom. A mother will be in disgrace because of a neglected child. When the wicked are in charge, transgressions increase. However, the righteous wait for their downfall. If you discipline your children, they will give rest and delight to your heart. Discipline those kids!
