Proverbs 13:13 - He who scorns instruction will pay for it

NIV He who scorns instruction will pay for it,
but he who respects a command is rewarded.
KJV Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.
NASBThe one who despises the word will be in debt to it,
But the one who fears the commandment will be rewarded.

Proverbs 13:13


A person can either despise instruction or respond in reverence, understanding that the ultimate Giver of instruction is God. Correction is only for one's good.

Wisdom in Proverbs 13

This chapter gives some practical counsel on how to be wise. First, listen to rebuke and instruction (v. 1) and learn to take advice (v. 10) and discipline (v. 24). Walk with the wise (v. 20) and listen to their conversation (v. 14), and you will become more like them. As you meditate on the Word of God, you walk with the wisest of the wise, so do not neglect the Scriptures (v. 13).
