For whom the LORD loves he corrects; even as a father the son in whom he delights.
ContextTrust in the Lord
1My son, forget not my law; but let your heart keep my commandments: 2For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to you. 3Let not mercy and truth forsake you: bind them about your neck; write them on the table of your heart: 4So shall you find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man. 5Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not to your own understanding. 6In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths. 7Be not wise in your own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. 8It shall be health to your navel, and marrow to your bones. 9Honor the LORD with your substance, and with the first fruits of all your increase: 10So shall your barns be filled with plenty, and your presses shall burst out with new wine. 11My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: 12For whom the LORD loves he corrects; even as a father the son in whom he delights.
