dis´i -plin ( מוּסר , mūṣār ): In the King James Version only in Job 36:10 , where it refers to moral discipline, the strenuous cultivation of the righteous life; the Revised Version (British and American) "instruction." the Revised Version (British and American) in 2 Timothy 1:7 has "discipline" for a Greek word ( sōphronismós ) meaning "sobering"; in 2 Timothy 3:16 margin, for Greek paideı́a , "instruction." In classic Greek paideia means "education," mental culture. Through the influence of the Septuagint, which translates the Hebrew mūṣār by paideia , the meaning of "chastisement" accompanies παιδεια , paideia in the New Testament. Compare Hebrews 12:5 , Hebrews 12:7 , Hebrews 12:8 , Hebrews 12:11 . See CHASTISEMENT; and for ecclesiastical discipline see CHURCH .
