“aMy son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord,
Nor bfaint when you are reproved by Him;
And He scourges every son whom He receives.”
7 It is for discipline that you endure; aGod deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?
8 But if you are without discipline, aof which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons.
