5And you have forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons: “My son, do not take lightly the discipline of the Lord, and do not lose heart when He rebukes you. 6For the Lord disciplines the one He loves, and He chastises every son He receives.” 7Endure suffering as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father?…

(6) And scourgeth.--As the words stand in our Hebrew text, the meaning is "even as a father the son in whom he delighteth."

For the purpose of this quotation the difference between the two renderings is not material.
