The way of the sluggard is as a hedge of thorns, But the path of the upright is a highway. (Isa.35:8) And a highway will be there, a roadway, And it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, But it will be for him who walks that way, And fools will not wander on it.

He whose ear listens to the life-giving reproof will dwell among the wise.
He who neglects discipline despises himself, but he who listens to reproof acquires understanding.
The fear of the LORD is the instruction for wisdom. And before honor comes humility.
