Scripture Reference:

Description: In the foreground, a mother weeps as a man informs her of her child's behavior. In the near background, Absalom hangs from a tree by his hair opposite a man hanging from a gallows. In the background, a man is stoned and Elisha walks away from two bears mauling a group of children. The Latin superscription reads, "The reward of not obeying one's parents," and the text below, "What does the wicked, burdensome offspring incur on the parents? The swift ravens ravage their own hollowed eyes".
