'Penalties' in the Bible
He who becomes security for an outsider shall smart for it, but he who hates suretyship is secure [from its penalties].
And someone asked Him, Lord, will only a few be saved (rescued, delivered from the penalties of the last judgment, and made partakers of the salvation by Christ)? And He said to them,
It is a fearful (formidable and terrible) thing to incur the divine penalties and be cast into the hands of the living God!
