Proverbs 29:17-19 New Life Version (NLV)
17 Punish your son when he does wrong and he will give you comfort. Yes, he will give joy to your soul.
18 Where there is no understanding of the Word of the Lord, the people do whatever they want to, but happy is he who keeps the law.
19 A servant will not be taught by words alone. For even if he understands, he will not answer.
