Proverbs 13:24

Hebrew Bible

22 A good person leaves an inheritance for his grandchildren,but the wealth of a sinner is stored up for the righteous. 23 Abundant food may come from the field of the poor, but it is swept away by injustice. 24 The one who spares his rod hates his child, but the one who loves his child is diligent in disciplining him. 25 The righteous has enough food to satisfy his appetite, but the belly of the wicked will be empty.

Sirach 22:6

Ben Sira, Ecclesiasticus

4 A sensible daughter obtains a husband of her own, but one who acts shamefully is a grief to her father. 5 An impudent daughter disgraces father and husband, and is despised by both. 6 Like music in time of mourning is ill-timed conversation, but a thrashing and discipline are at all times wisdom. 9 Whoever teaches a fool is like one who glues potsherds together, or who rouses a sleeper from deep slumber. 10 Whoever tells a story to a fool tells it to a drowsy man; and at the end he will say, "What is it?"
