    • Brenton Septuagint Translation
      • But blessed is the man whom the Lord has reproved; and reject not thou the chastening of the Almighty.

  1. Psalm 94:12 – The Lord will not forget his people ( Link )
    • 12 Blessed is the man whom you chasten, O LORD, and teach him out of your law;13 to grant him relief from days of trouble,until a pit is dug for the wicked.14 For the LORD will not forsake His people;He will never abandon His heritage.15 Surely judgment will again be righteous,and all the upright in heart will follow it.
  2. Psalm 141:5 – Come Quickly to Me (  Link )
    • 4 Do not let my heart be drawn to any evil thing or take part in works of wickedness with men who do iniquity; let me not feast on their delicacies.
    • 5 Let the righteous man strike me; let his rebuke be an act of loving devotion. It is oil for my head; let me not refuse it. For my prayer is ever against the deeds of the wicked.


    1. Proverbs 27:6 – Do not Boast about Tomorrow
      • 5 Better an open rebuke than love that is concealed.
        6 The wounds of a friend are faithful, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
    2. Proverbs 28 ( Link )
      • 21 To show partiality is not good,
        yet a man will do wrong for a piece of bread.

        22 A stingy man hastens after wealth
        and does not know that poverty awaits him.

        23 He who rebukes a man will later find more favor

        than one who flatters with his tongue.

        24 He who robs his father or mother, saying, “It is not wrong,”

        is a companion to the man who destroys.

        25 A greedy man stirs up strife,

        but he who trusts in the LORD will prosper.

        26 He who trusts in himself is a fool,

        but one who walks in wisdom will be safe.

        27 Whoever gives to the poor will not be in need,

        but he who hides his eyes will receive many curses.

        28 When the wicked come to power, people hide themselves;

        but when they perish, the righteous flourish.
