Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent.
Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the LORD your God disciplines you.
Blessed is the one you discipline, LORD, the one you teach from your law;
Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them.
