7 if chastening you endure, as to sons God bears Himself to you, for who is a son whom a father does not chasten?
8 and if you are apart from chastening, of which all have become partakers, then bastards are you, and not sons.
9 Then, indeed, fathers of our flesh we have had, chastising us, and we were reverencing them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of the spirits, and live?
10 for they, indeed, for a few days, according to what seemed good to them, were chastening, but He for profit, to be partakers of His separation;
And he answered them, saying, 'Who is my mother, or my brethren?'
And having looked round in a circle to those sitting about him, he said, 'Lo, my mother and my brethren!

An aged person you may not rebuke, but be entreating as a father; younger persons as brethren;
aged women as mothers, younger ones as sisters -- in all purity;
for you did not receive a spirit of bondage again for fear, but you did receive a spirit of adoption in which we cry, 'Abba -- Father.'

6 and because you are sons, God did send forth the spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, 'Abba, Father!'
7 so that you are no more a servant, but a son, and if a son, also an heir of God through Christ.
for you are all sons of God through the faith in Christ Jesus,
