Rebuke Combined with Anger
Psalm 6:1-10
O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger, neither chasten me in your hot displeasure.…

Thy rebuking, O God, is to me as thunder, but Thine anger is as lightning; and is it not enough that Thou terrify my soul with the thunder of Thy rebuking, but Thou wilt also set this flax of my flesh on fire with the lightning of Thine anger? Thy rebuking of itself is a precious balm, but mixed with anger turns to a corrosive.

(Sir Richard Baker.)
