Correction
(in scriptural language),
is,
Whatever tends to correct the moral conduct, and bring back from error or sin, as afflictions.

From
The American Dictionary
of the English Language
by Noah Webster
1828

All scripture is given by inspiration
of God, and is profitable for doctrine,
for reproof, for correction,
for instruction in righteousness:
that the man of God may be perfect,
thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

2 Timothy 3:16 and 17
