How about "generate" as a translation of γενναω (gennaō)?
A man generates an offspring when he impregnates a woman. A woman generates an offspring when she gives birth.

Man judges a person by his past deeds, and administers penalties for his wrongdoing. God judges a person by his present character, and disciplines him that he may become righteous.
