6 because the Lord disciplines the one he loves,q
7 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children.s For what children are not disciplined by their father? 8 If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes disciplinet—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. 9 Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spiritsu and live!v 10 They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness.w 11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peacex for those who have been trained by it.
