Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
1 Corinthians 11:30
For this cause a number of you are feeble and ill, and a number are dead.
Keep in mind this thought, that as a son is trained by his father, so you have been trained by the Lord your God.
Truly, that man is happy who has training from the hand of God: so do not let your heart be shut to the teaching of the Ruler of all.
To keep back his soul from the underworld, and his life from destruction.
Happy is the man who is guided by you, O Jah, and to whom you give teaching out of your law;
The hand of Jah has been hard on me; but he has not given me up to death.
My son, do not make your heart hard against the Lord's teaching; do not be made angry by his training:
Why will you have more and more punishment? why keep on in your evil ways? Every head is tired and every heart is feeble.
And you are to say to them, This is the nation which has not given ear to the voice of their God, or taken his teaching to heart: good faith is dead and is cut off from their mouths.
She gave no attention to the voice, she had no use for teaching, she put no faith in the Lord, she did not come near to her God.
And you have not kept in mind the word which says to you as to sons, My son, do not make little of the Lord's punishment, and do not give up hope when you are judged by him;
Now, we have knowledge that what the law says is for those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and all men may be judged by God:
1 John 5:19
We are certain that we are of God, but all the world is in the power of the Evil One.
Then I will send punishment on them for their sin; my rod will be the reward of their evil-doing.
If the upright man is rewarded on earth, how much more the evil-doer and the sinner!
Give him blows with the rod, and keep his soul safe from the underworld
O Lord, for this cause I am waiting for you, give rest to my spirit: make me well again, and let me come back to life.
