    King James Bible - Proverbs 3:12

    For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

    World English Bible

    for whom Yahweh loves, he reproves; even as a father reproves the son in whom he delights.

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 3:12

    For whom the Lord loveth, he chastiseth: and as a father in the son he pleaseth himself.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

    Original Hebrew

    כי
    3588 את 853 אשׁר 834 יאהב 157 יהוה 3068 יוכיח 3198 וכאב 1  את 853  בן 1121  ירצה׃ 7521

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:12

    porque el SEŅOR castiga al que ama y quiere, como el padre al hijo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 3:12

    Verse 12. Whom the
    Lord loveth ] To encourage thee to bear correction, know that it is a proof of God's love to thee; and thereby he shows that he treats thee as a father does his son, even that one to whom he bears the fondest affection.

    The last clause the Septuagint translate ppmastigoi de panta uion on paradecetai, "and chasteneth every son whom he receiveth;" and the apostle, Heb. xii. 6, quotes this literatim. Both clauses certainly amount to the same sense. Every son whom he receiveth, and the son in whom he delighteth, have very little difference of meaning.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth , etc.] This is a reason why the children of God should not despise corrections, nor be weary of them; since they spring from love, are given in love, nor is there any abatement of it in them: when the Lord chastens and corrects, he does not take away his lovingkindness from them; yea, it is because he loves them that therefore he thus deals with them; wherefore they ought to be patiently bore, and kindly taken by them; even as a father the son [in whom] he delighteth ; as a father chastens and corrects his son, whom he dearly loves, and has the greatest pleasure in, so the Lord chastens and corrects his people; (see Deuteronomy 8:5).

    There is such a relation subsisting between them as that of father and son, which flows from the inexpressible love of God to them; and which is a love of complacency and delight in them, and is invariable and unchangeable, and continues the same under all their afflictions; as appears by what he does for them in them, and by the issue of them; he knows their souls in adversity, and chooses them in the furnace of affliction; he pays love visits to them, and comforts them under all their tribulation; he sympathizes with them, and supports them; he makes their bed in their affliction, and delivers out of it, or takes them to himself: the issue is always his own glory, and their good.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-12 - There is not a greater enemy to the fear of the Lord in the heart, tha self-conceit of our own wisdom. The prudence and sobriety whic religion teaches, tend not only to the health of the soul, but to the health of the body. Worldly wealth is but poor substance, yet, such a it is, we must honour God with it; and those that do good with what they have, shall have more to do more good with. Should the Lord visi us with trials and sickness, let us not forget that the exhortatio speaks to us as to children, for our good. We must not faint under a affliction, be it ever so heavy and long, not be driven to despair, or use wrong means for relief. The father corrects the son whom he loves because he loves him, and desires that he may be wise and good Afflictions are so far from doing God's children any hurt, that, by the grace of God, they promote their holiness.
