Chapter 13 is a continuation of chapters 10 and 11. Again, we have two parallel lines where the second line is contrasted with the first line. While the form and content of chapter 13 is similar to chapters 10-12, it differs in that it begins with a father’s loving discipline and closes with verse 24 (second to last verse) where the loving father disciplines or corrects his son.
Contrasting the Righteous and the Wicked As to the Necessities of Life
Proverbs 13:25 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
25 The righteous eats to the satisfying of his soul,
but the belly of the wicked suffers want.
