Chasten the Son? (@#$!Daughter?) By Whom? Why?


My son,
attend unto my wisdom,
and bow thine ear to my understanding:
That thou mayest regard discretion,
and  that thy lips may keep knowledge. ”

Prov-1:1, 2

I am no preacher, but, am a sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” God gave me the following verses in the context of Chasten from the Book of Life (The Holy Bible-KJV).

Chastening

Word Web Meaning  : 
A rebuke for making a mistake, restrain, censure severely, 
correct by punishment or discipline

Deu-8:5 Thou shalt also consider in thine heart,
that, as a man chasteneth his son,
so the LORD thy God chasteneth thee.

Deu-21:18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son,
which will not obey the voice of his father,
or the voice of his mother, and  that,
when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:

19. Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him,
and bring him out unto the elders of his city,
and unto the gate of his place;
20. And they shall say unto the elders of his city,
This our son  is stubborn and rebellious,
he will not obey our voice;
he is a glutton,
and a drunkard.

2Sa-7:14  I will be his father,
and he shall be my son.
If he commit iniquity,
I will chasten him with the rod of men,
and with the stripes of the children of men:

15. But my mercy shall not depart away from him,
as I took  it from Saul,
whom I put away before thee.

Job-5:17 Behold, happy  is the man whom God correcteth:

he woundeth,
and his hands make whole.

Job-33:19 He is chastened also with pain upon his bed,

that was to my reproach.

Psa-94:12 Blessed  is the man whom thou chastenest,
O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;

until the pit be digged for the wicked.

Psa-118:18 The LORD hath chastened me sore:
but he hath not given me over unto death.

Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand,
and to chasten thyself before thy God,
thy words were heard,
and I am come for thy words.

Heb-12:5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation
which speaketh unto you as unto children,
My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord,
nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

6. For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth,
and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

Heb-12:7 If ye endure chastening,
God dealeth with you as with sons;
for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

8. But if ye be without chastisement,
whereof all are partakers,
then are ye bastards,
and not sons.

Heb-12:10 For they verily for a few days chastened  us after their own pleasure;
but he for  our profit,
that  we might be partakers of his holiness.

Heb-12:11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous,
but grievous:
nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness
unto them which are exercised thereby.

Rev-3:19 As many as I love,
I rebuke and chasten:
be zealous therefore,
and repent.

And we know that all things work together for good
to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to  his purpose. “

Rom-08:28
