Hebrews 12:5 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
And ye have forgotten - Or, have ye forgotten the exhortation? This quotation is made from Proverbs 3:11, Proverbs 3:12, and shows that the address there, which at first sight appears to be from Solomon to his son, or from some fatherly man to a person in affliction, is properly from God himself to any person in persecution, affliction, or distress.
Despise not thou the chastening - Μη ολιγωρει παιδειας Κυριου· Do not neglect the correction of the Lord. That man neglects correction, and profits not by it, who does not see the hand of God in it; or, in other words, does not fear the rod and him who hath appointed it, and, consequently, does not humble himself under the mighty hand of God, deplore his sin, deprecate Divine judgment, and pray for mercy.
Nor faint - Do not be discouraged nor despair, for the reasons immediately alleged.

It declares one of those great laws of the kingdom of God which may fulfil itself once and again at many eras and by many methods; which fulfilled itself most gloriously in the first century after Christ; again in the fifth century; again at the time of the Crusades; and again at the great Reformation in the sixteenth century,--and is fulfilling itself again at this very day. …

The Shameful Sufferer
"Blessed is the one whom God corrects; so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty.
Blessed is the one you discipline, LORD, the one you teach from your law;
Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I obey your word.
My son, do not despise the LORD's discipline, and do not resent his rebuke,
Why should the living complain when punished for their sins?
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
1 Timothy 1:20
Among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme.
