Pr 3:12

3:12 Heb. 12:3–11 explains that God’s correction is better than that of an earthly father; for the comparison, see Luke 11:11–13. Chastisement is not the main content of God’s fatherly teaching; the instruction of Proverbs is designed for people who want to hear it (2:3–5; 4:5–9; 8:11, 17).
