New Defender's Study Bible Notes
3:11 chastening. “Chastening” is the same word as “instruction.” Thus, God’s chastening is always for purposes of instruction, and should not be ignored or resented. Proverbs 3:11-12 is quoted in this context in Hebrews 12:5-6. Note also II Timothy 3:16, as well as Job 5:17; Psalm 94:12; Revelation 3:19.
