Thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that as a man chastenth his son, so the Lord thy God chasteneth thee. Deut. 8:2, 5
The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death. Psa. 118:18
He hath not dealt with us after our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
