'My boss chastened me' ( under ψεγω)

This is purely about English usage - apologies. I think it should be 'chastised' instead of chastened. Interestingly dictionaries seem to list 'chasten' as a transitive verb but I have never come across any form of it except 'chastened' used as an adjective to mean shamefaced/ humiliated by a recent event.
