New International Version
5 And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says,
“My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,
and do not lose heart(A) when he rebukes you,
6 because the Lord disciplines the one he loves,(B)
and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”[a](C)
7 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children.(D) For what children are not disciplined by their father? 8 If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline(E)—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all.
- Hebrews 12:6 Prov. 3:11,12 (see Septuagint)
