8 So don’t bother correcting mockers; they will only hate you. But correct the wise,
and they will love you.
9 Instruct the wise, and they will be even wiser. Teach the righteous,
and they will learn even more.
12 If you become wise, you will be the one to benefit.
If you scorn wisdom, you will be the one to suffer.” Proverbs 9:6-12
