John 3:19-21

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness more than light, because their works were evil. 20 For whosoever doeth evil hateth the light, and doth not come to the light, that his deeds may not be detected. 21 But he who practiseth truth cometh to the light, that his works may be open to view, because they are the operations of God."

2 Corinthians 7:9-10

9 Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorrowful, but that you were affected with a sorrow which led to a reformation. For you were affected with a godly sorrow, that you might in no wise receive damage from us. 10 For godly sorrow operateth to produce a reformation for salvation, never to be repented of; but the sorrow of this world worketh death.
