I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commits iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men:

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Men, who are not to be entirely destroyed, like the Chanaanites. (Calmet) This is not unlike the human temptation of which St. Paul speaks, 1 Corinthians x. 13. See Psalm lxxii. 5., and lxxxviii. 33. (Haydock) The rod of men denotes war, and stripes signify those punishments which God inflicts. (St. Jerome, Trad.) Some parts of this declaration regard Christ; others Solomon, Hebrews i. 5. (Du Hamel)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
