Top 5 popular sayings that do not exist in the Holy Bible – these findings will shock you

2. Spare The Rod, Spoil The Child

This totally sounds like something from the Bible, right? Shocker, it isn’t there. The below are as close as it gets to this popular statement:

“He who withholds his rod hates his son, But he who loves him disciplines him diligently” (Proverbs 13:24).

“Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of discipline will remove it far from him” (Proverbs 22:15).

“Do not hold back discipline from the child, Although you strike him with the rod, he will not die.

You shall strike him with the rod, And rescue his soul from Sheol” (Proverbs 23:13-14).

“The rod and reproof give wisdom, But a child who gets his own way brings shame to his mother” (Proverbs 29:15). Same principle, just different words.
