6 1FOR THOSE 2WHOM THE LORD LOVES HE DISCIPLINES, AND HE SCOURGES EVERY SON WHOM HE RECEIVES." 7 It is for discipline that you endure ; 3God deals with you as with sons ; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline ? 8 But if you are without discipline, 4of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we had aearthly fathers to discipline us, and we 5respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to 6the Father of bspirits, and 7live ? 10 For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, 8so that we may share His holiness. 11 All discipline 9for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful ; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the 10peaceful fruit of righteousness. 12 Therefore, c11strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble, 13 and 12make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather 13be healed. 14 14Pursue peace with all men, and the 15sanctification without which no one will 16see the Lord. 15 See to it that no one 17comes short of the grace of God ; that no 18root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be 19defiled ; 16 that there be no 20immoral or 21godless person like Esau, 22who sold his own birthright for a single meal.
