New King James Version
6 For (A)whom the Lord loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.”
7 (B)If[a] you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what (C)son is there whom a father does not chasten? 8 But if you are without chastening, (D)of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to (E)the Father of spirits and live? 10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, (F)that we may be partakers of His holiness.Read full chapter
- Hebrews 12:7 NU, M It is for discipline that you endure; God
New American Standard Bible
7 It is for discipline that you endure; (C)God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline? 8 But if you are without discipline, (D)of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we had [a]earthly fathers to discipline us, and we (E)respected them; shall we not much more be subject to (F)the Father of [b]spirits, and (G)live? 10 For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, (H)so that we may share His holiness.Read full chapter
For the Lord disciplines and corrects those whom He loves,
And He punishes every son whom He receives and welcomes [to His heart].”(A)
7 You must submit to [correction for the purpose of] discipline; God is dealing with you as with sons; for [a]what son is there whom his father does not discipline? 8 Now if you are exempt from correction and without discipline, in which all [of God’s children] share, then you are illegitimate children and not sons [at all]. 9 Moreover, we have had earthly fathers who disciplined us, and we submitted and respected them [for training us]; shall we not much more willingly submit to the Father of [b]spirits, and live [by learning from His discipline]? 10 For our earthly fathers disciplined us for only a short time as seemed best to them; but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness.Read full chapter
New International Version
7 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children.(C) For what children are not disciplined by their father? 8 If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline(D)—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. 9 Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits(E) and live!(F) 10 They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness.(G)
- Hebrews 12:6 Prov. 3:11,12 (see Septuagint)
King James Version
6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.Read full chapter
