HOW ALL PIOUS PARENTS, ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES,

ARE REQUIRED TO

GOVERN, CORRECT AND EDUCATE THEIR CHILDREN,

IN A

PIOUS, VIRTUOUS AND GODLY LIFE.

BY

MENNO SIMON.

" Withold not correction from thy child; for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell," Prov. 28:18, 14.

"Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest." "The rod and reproof give wis­dom; but a child left to himself bringeth his mother shame," Prov. 29:17,18.

"For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ," 1Cor.S:11.

1871. 269"Hast thou children ? Instruct them, and bow down their necks from their youth. Hast thou daughters Have a care of their body, and show not thyself cheerful towards them," Eccl. 7:23, 24.

"He that maketh too much of his son shall bind up his wounds. Cocker thy son, and he shall make thee afraid; play with him, and he will bring thee to heaviness. Laugh not with him, lest thou have sorrow with him, and lest thou gnash thy teeth in the end. Give him no liberty in his youth, and wink not at his follies. Bow down his neck while he is young, and beat him on the sides while he is a child, lest he wax stubborn, and be disobedient unto thee, and so bring sorrow to thine heart," Eccl. 30:7‑12.

11 Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying," Prov. 19:18.
