5 The pain of a wound cleanses away evil, so do stripes purge the inward parts [including the heart] of man. God disciplines and scourges every son he accepts, Heb 12:6; he who has suffered in the flesh is finished with sin. So that you should not live the rest of your time in the flesh in the lusts of men, but [live] to the will of God. 1 Pet 4:1-2.

From the Word of the Lord within:

Not only is pain used to rid sin from a man on earth, pain is also used to rid a person of sin in Hell.

"there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth." Mat 13:42,50.
"there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." Mat 22:13,24:51,25:30

"And those who have loathed my law, while they yet had liberty, and when as yet the opportunity of repentance was open to them, understood not, but despised it; the same must learn it after death by pain." 4 Esdras 9:11-12

From the Word of the Lord within
:

In Hell all criticisms of anyone or actions causing pain to anyone are replayed with you feeling the emotional and/or physical pain that you caused those to feel, (afterwards you are relieved, so the pain is not permanent). In this way you learn to hate the mistakes you made when on earth, resolving to never repeat those behaviors again; and as you learn to hate evil, you are drawn to goodness, which is being drawn to God. Thus, we learn from all our mistakes made while on earth.

In the end, He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds. Psa 147:3
