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 many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
And know in thine heart, that as a man chastens his son, so the LORD thy God chastens thee.
Behold, blessed is the man whom God chastens; therefore, do not despise not the correction of the Almighty.
Thus he keeps back his soul from the pit and his life from perishing by the sword.
For it is of God to say, I have forgiven, I will no longer destroy.
Blessed is the man whom thou dost chasten, O JAH, and teach him out of thy law,
JAH has chastened me sore, but he has not given me over unto death.
My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:
Why should I chastise you any more? Ye will revolt more and more; every head is sick, and every heart faint.
Therefore thou shalt say unto them, This is the nation that did not hear the voice of the LORD their God, nor receive chastisement; the faith is lost and was cut off from their mouth.
She did not obey the voice; she did not receive correction; she did not trust in the LORD; she did not draw near to her God.
And ye have quite forgotten the consolation which speaks unto you as unto sons, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art reproved of him:
Now we know that all that the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may submit themselves unto God.
1 John 5:19
And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in wickedness.
then I will visit their rebellion with the rod and their iniquity with stripes.
The righteous shall certainly be recompensed in the earth; how much more the wicked and the sinner!
Thou shalt beat him with the rod and shalt deliver his soul from Sheol.
O Lord, even unto all those that shall live, in these fifteen years I shall proclaim the life of my spirit in them and how thou caused me to sleep, and afterwards hast given me life.
