But in reference to the orphans here mentioned, they having no kinsman, God takes up, vindicates, and avenges their cause.

Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them.
Discipline your children, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to their death.
Apply your heart to instruction and your ears to words of knowledge.
