Westminster Larger Catechism in modern English question number twenty-eight:

Q. 28. What are the punishments upon sin in this world?

A. The punishments upon sin in this world are inward–like blindness of mind, reprobate perceptions, strong delusions, hardness of heart, horror of conscience, and vile inclinations; or they are outward–like the curse of God upon the creatures for our sakes and all the other evils that happen to us in our bodies, names, states, relationships, and employments–all in addition to death itself.
