Hebrews 12:5-8 New King James Version (NKJV)

And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:

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

If[b] you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.
