looking unto Jesus, the [a]author and [b]finisher of our faith, (A)who for the joy that was set before Him (B)endured the cross, despising the shame, and (C)has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

The Discipline of God(D)

(E)For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, (F)lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. (G)You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:

(H)“My son, do not despise the [c]chastening of the Lord,
Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
For (I)whom the Lord loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.”
