    If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

    World English Bible

    It is for discipline that you endure. God deals with you as with children, for what son is there whom his father doesn't discipline?

    Douay-Rheims - Hebrew 12:7

    Persevere under discipline. God dealeth with you as with his sons; for what son is there, whom the father doth not correct?

    Webster's Bible Translation

    If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons: for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:7

    Si sufrís el castigo, Dios se os presenta como a hijos, porque ¿qu hijo es aquel a quien el padre no castiga?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Hebrew 12:7

    Verse 7. If ye
    endure chastening] If ye submit to his authority, humble yourselves under his hand, and pray for his blessing, you will find that he deals with you as beloved children, correcting you that he may make you partakers of his holiness.

    God dealeth with you as with sons] He acknowledges by this that you belong to the family, and that he, as your Father, has you under proper discipline. It is a maxim among the Jewish rabbins that "the love which is not conjoined with reproof is not genuine."


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. If ye endure chastening , etc..] In faith, with patience, with courage and constancy, with humility and reverence: there are many things which may encourage and animate the saints to endure it in such a manner; as that it is but a chastening, and the chastening of a father; it should be considered from whence it comes, and for what ends; that it comes from the Lord, and is for his glory, and their good; the example of Christ, and of other saints, should excite unto it. The Jews have a saying f281 , that the doctrine of chastisements is silence; that is, they are to be patiently bore, and not murmured at. The Vulgate Latin, and all the Oriental versions, read the words as an exhortation; the former of these renders it, persevere in discipline; the Syriac version, endure correction; the Arabic version, be ye patient in chastisement; and the Ethiopic version, endure your chastening: but then the word, for, should be supplied in the next clause, as it is in the Syriac and Ethiopic versions, making that to be a reason, enforcing this, for God dealeth with you as with sons : chastening is owning of them for his children, and it discovers them to be so, and shows that they continue such; he does not chasten them but when it is necessary; and whenever he does, it is in love and mercy, and for good, and in the best time, seasonably, and in measure: for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? no one can be named, not the Son of God himself; he had the chastisement of our peace upon him; nor the more eminent among the children of God, as Abraham, David, and others; nor any in any catalogue, or list of them, such as in the preceding chapter; not one in any age or period of time whatever, in any bodies, societies, or communities of them, either under the Old or New Testament.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - The persevering obedience of
    faith in Christ, was the race set befor the Hebrews, wherein they must either win the crown of glory, or have everlasting misery for their portion; and it is set before us. By the sin that does so easily beset us, understand that sin to which we ar most prone, or to which we are most exposed, from habit, age, or circumstances. This is a most important exhortation; for while a man' darling sin, be it what it will, remains unsubdued, it will hinder his from running the Christian race, as it takes from him every motive for running, and gives power to every discouragement. When weary and fain in their minds, let them recollect that the holy Jesus suffered, to save them from eternal misery. By stedfastly looking to Jesus, their thoughts would strengthen holy affections, and keep under their carna desires. Let us then frequently consider him. What are our littl trials to his agonies, or even to our deserts? What are they to the sufferings of many others? There is a proneness in believers to gro weary, and to faint under trials and afflictions; this is from the imperfection of grace and the remains of corruption. Christians shoul not faint under their trials. Though their enemies and persecutors ma be instruments to inflict sufferings, yet they are Divin chastisements; their heavenly Father has his hand in all, and his wis end to answer by all. They must not make light of afflictions, and be without feeling under them, for they are the hand and rod of God, an are his rebukes for sin. They must not despond and sink under trials nor fret and repine, but bear up with faith and patience. God may le others alone in their sins, but he will correct sin in his ow children. In this he acts as becomes a father. Our earthly parent sometimes may chasten us, to gratify their passion, rather than to reform our manners. But the Father of our souls never willingly grieve nor afflicts his children. It is always for our profit. Our whole lif here is a state of childhood, and imperfect as to spiritual things therefore we must submit to the discipline of such a state. When we come to a perfect state, we shall be fully reconciled to all God' chastisement of us now. God's correction is not condemnation; the chastening may be borne with patience, and greatly promote holiness Let us then learn to consider the afflictions brought on us by the malice of men, as corrections sent by our wise and gracious Father, for our spiritual good.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    7. If ye
    endure chastening (eiv paideian upomenete). Rend. "it is for chastening that ye endure." A.V. follows the reading of T. R. eij if. Do not faint at affliction. Its purpose is disciplinary. Paideia is here the end or result of discipline. In ver. 5 it is the process.

    God dealeth with you as with sons ( wv uioiv umin prosferetai o qeov). The verb means to bring to: often to bring an offering to the altar, as Matt. v. 23, 24; viii. 4. In the passive voice with the dative, to be born toward one; hence, to attack, assail, deal with, behave toward. See Thucyd. i. 140; Eurip. Cycl. 176; Hdt. vii. 6. The afflictive dealing of God with you is an evidence that you are sons.

    What son is he whom the father, etc. (tiv uiov). Some interpreters render, "who is a son whom the father?" etc. That is, no one is a son who is without paternal chastening. The A.V. is better. The idea expressed by the other rendering appears in the next verse.
