Jeremiah 6:28-30

They are called rejected silver, for the LORD has rejected them.

Hebrews 12:5-8
And you have forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons: My son, do not take the Lord's discipline lightly, or faint when you are reproved by Him;
for the Lord disciplines the one He loves, and punishes every son whom He receives.
Endure it as discipline: God is dealing with you as sons. For what son is there whom a father does not discipline?
But if you are without discipline-- which all receive-- then you are illegitimate children and not sons.

Revelation 16:8-11
The fourth poured out his bowl on the sun. He was given the power to burn people with fire,
and people were burned by the intense heat. So they blasphemed the name of God who had the power over these plagues, and they did not repent and give Him glory.
The fifth poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues from pain
and blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, yet they did not repent of their actions.

Daniel 9:8-11
LORD, public shame belongs to us, our kings, our leaders, and our fathers, because we have sinned against You.
Compassion and forgiveness belong to the Lord our God, though we have rebelled against Him
and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD our God by following His instructions that He set before us through His servants the prophets.
All Israel has broken Your law and turned away, refusing to obey You. The promised cursewritten in the law of Moses, the servant of God, has been poured out on us because we have sinned against Him.
Zephaniah 3:1-4
Woe to the city that is rebellious and defiled, the oppressive city!
She has not obeyed; she has not accepted discipline. She has not trusted in the LORD; she has not drawn near to her God.
The princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are wolves of the night, which leave nothing for the morning.
Her prophets are reckless-- treacherous men. Her priests profane the sanctuary; they do violence to instruction.
