New International Version
Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father?
King James Bible
If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
Darby Bible Translation
Ye endure for chastening, God conducts himself towards you as towards sons; for who is the son that the father chastens not?
World English Bible
It is for discipline that you endure. God deals with you as with children, for what son is there whom his father doesn't discipline?
Young's Literal Translation
if chastening ye endure, as to sons God beareth Himself to you, for who is a son whom a father doth not chasten?
Hebrews 12:7 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
If ye endure chastening - If ye submit to his authority, humble yourselves under his hand, and pray for his blessing, you will find that he deals with you as beloved children, correcting you that he may make you partakers of his holiness.
God dealeth with you as with sons - He acknowledges by this that you belong to the family, and that he, as your Father, has you under proper discipline. It is a maxim among the Jewish rabbins that "the love which is not conjoined with reproof is not genuine."

"Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but heaven" (Hebrews xii. 26- 29). This is one of the royal texts of Scripture. 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
Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the LORD your God disciplines you.
2 Samuel 7:14
I will be his father, and he will be my son. When he does wrong, I will punish him with a rod wielded by men, with floggings inflicted by human hands.
Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them.
Discipline your children, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to their death.
Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you punish them with the rod, they will not die.
1 Corinthians 11:32
Nevertheless, when we are judged in this way by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be finally condemned with the world.
