Proverbs 3:11–12; Hebrews 12:5–6; Job 5:17

11  sMy son, do not despise the Lord's discipline

or be weary of his reproof,

12  for the Lord reproves him whom he loves,

as ta father the son in whom he delights.


And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons?

fMy son, gdo not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord,

nor be weary when reproved by him.

For hthe Lord disciplines the one he loves,

and chastises every son whom he receives.


17  Behold, kblessed is the one whom God reproves;

therefore ldespise not the discipline of the mAlmighty.
