17 See how happy is the person whom God corrects;
so do not reject the discipline of the Almighty.

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

My son, do not take the Lord’s discipline lightly
or lose heart when you are reproved by him,
for the Lord disciplines the one he loves
and punishes every son he receives.[a](A)
