But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Hebrews 12:8

The author now turns to a set reason for the Father’s chastening. In this, He says, “But.” This is to contrast what was just said –

“If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? Read the rest

For whom the Lord loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.”

My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
Hebrews 12:5

Along with the books of Moses, the Hebrew audience would have been rather familiar with the Psalms and the Proverbs.Read the rest

You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. Hebrews 12:4

In the Greek, there is an article which comes before the word sin. Young’s translates it as, “Not yet unto blood did ye resist — with the sin striving.” In other words, “sin” is personified here by the author.Read the rest
