NRS 4 In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. NIV 4 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. NRS 5 And you have forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as children— "My child, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, or lose heart when you are punished by him; NIV 5 And you have forgotten that word of encouragement that addresses you as sons: "My son, do not make light of the Lord's discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, NRS 6 for the Lord disciplines those whom he loves, and chastises every child whom he accepts." NIV 6 because the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son." NRS 7 Endure trials for the sake of discipline. God is treating you as children; for what child is there whom a parent does not discipline? NIV 7 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? NRS 8 If you do not have that discipline in which all children share, then you are illegitimate and not his children. NIV 8 If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline), then you are illegitimate children and not true sons. NRS 9 Moreover, we had human parents to discipline us, and we respected them. Should we not be even more willing to be subject to the Father of spirits and live? NIV 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 our spirits and live! NRS 10 For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but he disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share his holiness. NIV 10 Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. NRS 11 Now, discipline always seems painful rather than pleasant at the time, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. NIV 11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

NRS 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather be healed. NIV 13 "Make level paths for your feet," so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.
