(5) As a man chasteneth his son.--This is the foundation of many similar sayings in Holy Scripture: Proverbs 13:24, "He seeketh chastening for him," i.e., seeks it early. All our ideas of training necessarily imply time; it cannot be done in a moment. But the main point of the illustration is to prove God's love. "Whom the Lord loveth, He chasteneth;" else, why should He be at the pains to chasten at all?

Verse 5. - Thus God educated, disciplined, and trained his people as a father does his child. Chasteneth. The idea is not so much that of punishment or chastisement, properly so called, as that of severe discipline and training. God made them feel his hand upon them, but ever for their good; the end of the discipline to which they were subjected was that they might keep his commandments and walk in his ways, so as to enjoy his favor (cf. Hebrews 12:5, etc.).
