Is it lawful to the eyes of God to discipline a child with a rod?
Proverbs 23:13-16 King James Version (KJV)
13 Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.
14 Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.
Proverbs 13:24 King James Version (KJV)
24 He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.
Proverbs 22:15 King James Version (KJV)
15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
