Hebrews 12:5 And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? “My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord,
nor be weary when reproved by him.
6 For the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
and chastises every son whom he receives.”

The result of receiving discipline with humility is wisdom and a satisfying successful life. In the OT the Word usually renders a form of the Hebrew yasar to instruct rebuke warm. Discipline in the NT usually renders a form of paideia to instruct correct.
