6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and tscourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 7 If ye endure chastening, uGod dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father vchasteneth not? 8 But if ye be without chastisement, wwhereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. 9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we xgave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto ythe Father of spirits, and live? 10 For they verily for a few days chastened us ||after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, zthat we might be partakers of his holiness. 11 Now no chastening afor the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth bthe peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are cexercised thereby.
