Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but LORD delivers him out of them all.
Blessed is the man whom thou chasten, O LORD, and teach out of thy law,
so I am made to possess months of misery, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.
Is it good to thee that thou should oppress, that thou should despise the work of thy hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?
Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound incurable, which refuses to be healed? Will thou indeed be to me as a deceitful [brook], as waters that fail?
You only I have known of all the families of the earth. Therefore I will visit upon you all your iniquities.
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?
1 Peter 1:6
In which ye greatly rejoice, although made sorrowful in various trials. Since it is now necessary for a little while,
saying, I have not sinned, nor committed unrighteousness, nor had fellowship with workers of iniquity to go with the profane.
In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.
And if ye are without chastening, of which all have become participants, then ye are bastards, and not sons.
