CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Despise not the chastening of the Lord - The word מוסר musar signifies correction, discipline, and instruction.

God will either end thee or mend thee; wilt thou then kick on?

because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son."
"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;
