3 gFor consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, hlest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. 4 iYou have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. 5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:
Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
6 For kwhom the Lord loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.”
7 lIf 4you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what mson is there whom a father does not chasten? 8 But if you are without chastening, nof which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to othe Father of spirits and live? 10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, pthat we may be partakers of His holiness. 11 Now no 5chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields qthe peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
