Contrite is probably the word you seek:-

  1. caused by or showing sincere remorse.
  2. filled with a sense of guilt and the desire for atonement; penitent: a contrite sinner.
  • Or a cognate of the adjective "contrite," the noun, "contrition." Jul 30, 2013 at 23:52


definition: to accept as true, valid, or accurate


definition 1.: to tell or make known. He willingly confessed his crime.

definition 2. to own or admit as true; concede

  • Thanks for your prompt reply. "Concede" comes close but there is another word which exactly fits the context of my question. It's when somebody has commited a crime and he/she accepts his/her punishment. Jul 30, 2013 at 4:29

Punishment is the consequence of your wrong doing. Parents tell their children to cease from parties cookouts celebrations until you gather yourselves together and accept that punishment we will not be forgiven and cleansed from our idols and sin.
