Proverbs 19:18 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

18 Discipline your son, for there is hope;
    but do not be intent on his death.[a]


  1. 19:18 The pain of disciplining the young cannot be compared with the danger no discipline may bring. The chief reason for disciplining the young is their capacity to change; excluded thereby are revenge and punishment.
