Discipline
Proverbs 3:11-12 “My son, do not despise the Lord's discipline and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.”
Proverbs 15:5 A fool spurns his father's discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence.
Hebrews 12:5-8 “Have you missed His word of encouragement that addresses you as sons: My son, do not make light of the Lord's discipline, and do not lose heart when you are rebuked/exposed by Him, because the Lord disciplines those He loves, and He punishes everyone that He accepts as a son. For discipline you are enduring; He's treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? Those not disciplined are illegitimate children and not true sons. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them (for it). How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live! Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as seemed best to them; but God disciplines us in expedience, that we may share in His holiness. No discipline is a thing of joy in its time, but rather is sorrow/pain. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained through it.”

For Your arrows have pierced me, and Your hand has come down upon me… My guilt has overwhelmed me like a burden too heavy to bear. My wounds fester and are loathsome because of my sinful folly. I am bowed down and brought very low; all day long I go about mourning. My back is filled with searing pain; there is no health in my body.
Proverbs 1:24-27 “But since you rejected me when I called and no one gave heed when I stretched out my hand, since you ignored all my advice and would not accept my rebuke, I in turn will laugh at your disaster; I will laugh when calamity overtakes you -- when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you. Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me. Since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the Lord, since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes.”
Proverbs 29:1 “A man who remains stiff-necked after many rebukes will suddenly be destroyed, and without remedy.”
