22 “How long, O asimple ones, will you love being simple?
How long will bscoffers delight in their scoffing
and fools chate knowledge?
29 Condemnation is ready for rscoffers,
and xbeating for the backs of fools.
24 f“Scoffer” is the name of the arrogant, haughty man
who acts with arrogant pride.
8 oScoffers set a city aflame,
but the wise turn away wrath.
A Cornerstone in Zion
14 Therefore hear the word of the Lord, you oscoffers,
who rule this people in Jerusalem!
