Hebrews 12:5-8

Context
12:5 And have you forgotten the exhortation addressed to you as sons?

My son, do not scorn 1  the Lord’s discipline

or give up when he corrects 2  you.

12:6For the Lord disciplines the one he loves and chastises every son he accepts. 3 

12:7 Endure your suffering 4  as discipline; 5  God is treating you as sons. For what son is there that a father does not discipline? 12:8 But if you do not experience discipline, 6  something all sons 7  have shared in, then you are illegitimate and are not sons.

1 tn Or “disregard,” “think little of.”
