I know, O Lord, that Your judgments are right, and that in faithfulness You have afflicted me. § O Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our potter; and all we are the work of Your hand. § It is the Lord. Let Him do what seems good to Him. § Righteous are You, O Lord, when I plead with You; yet let me talk with You about Your judgments.
He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver. § Whom the Lord loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives. § It is enough for a disciple that he be like his teacher, and a servant like his master. § Though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.
But rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. § These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
