But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
1 Corinthians 11:30
Because of this many are weak and sickly among you, and a considerable sleep.
And thou shall consider in thy heart, that, as a man chastens his son, so LORD thy God chastens thee.
Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects. Therefore do not despise thou the chastening of the Almighty.
He keeps back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.
For has any said to God, I have borne [chastisement], I will not offend [any more].
Blessed is the man whom thou chasten, O LORD, and teach out of thy law,
LORD has chastened me greatly, but he has not given me over to death.
My son, despise not the chastening of LORD, nor be weary of his reproof.
Why will ye be still stricken, that ye revolt more and more? The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.
And thou shall say to them, This is the nation that has not hearkened to the voice of LORD their God, nor received instruction. Truth has perished, and is cut off from their mouth.
She obeyed not the voice. She received not correction. She trusted not in LORD. She did not draw near to her God.
And have ye forgotten the exhortation that reasons with you as with sons, My son, do not disparage the chastening of Lord, nor become disheartened when punished by him?
Now we know that as many things as the law says, it says to those in the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become accountable to God.
1 John 5:19
We know that we are of God, and the whole world is set in the evil.
then I will visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes,
Behold, a righteous man shall be recompensed in the earth, how much more the wicked man and the sinner!
O LORD, by these things men live, and wholly therein is the life of my spirit. Therefore recover thou me, and make me to live.
