"Behold, how happy is the man whom God reproves, So do not despise the discipline of the Almighty.
Blessed is the man whom You chasten, O LORD, And whom You teach out of Your law;
My son, do not reject the discipline of the LORD Or loathe His reproof,
"Man is also chastened with pain on his bed, And with unceasing complaint in his bones;
For whom the LORD loves He reproves, Even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.
The LORD has disciplined me severely, But He has not given me over to death.
I know, O LORD, that Your judgments are righteous, And that in faithfulness You have afflicted me.
