Proverbs 20:30

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 30 The pain of a wound cleanses away evil, so do stripes purge the inward parts [including the heart] of man. [God chastens and scourges every son he accepts, Heb 12:6; he who has suffered in his body is done with sin. As a result, he does not live the rest of his earthly life for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God, 1 Pet 4:1-2.]
