5 A fool spurns a parent's discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence.
5 A fool despiseth his father's instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.
5 A fool despises his father's instruction, but whoever heeds reproof is prudent.
5 Moral dropouts won't listen to their elders; welcoming correction is a mark of good sense.
5 A fool despises his father's instruction, But he who receives correction is prudent.
5 Only a fool despises a parent's discipline; whoever learns from correction is wise.
(Read Proverbs 15:5)
If instruction is despised, reprove men rather than suffer them to go on undisturbed in the way to ruin.
