Proverbs 22:15New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

15 Folly is bound to the heart of a youth,
    but the rod of discipline will drive it out.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 22:15 Folly is attached to children as the husk is attached to the grain. “Rod” here, as in v. 8, seems to be the flail. Discipline is the process of winnowing away the folly.
