6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 22:6

Commentary on Proverbs 22:6

(Read Proverbs 22:6)

Train children, not in the way they would go, that of their corrupt hearts, but in the way they should go; in which, if you love them, you would have them go. As soon as possible every child should be led to the knowledge of the Saviour.
