Proverbs 1:22; Proverbs 3:34; Proverbs 19:29; Proverbs 21:24; Proverbs 29:8; Isaiah 28:14

22  How long, O asimple ones, will you love being simple?

How long will bscoffers delight in their scoffing

and fools chate knowledge?


34  Toward the cscorners he dis scornful,

ebut to the humble he gives favor.1


29  Condemnation is ready for rscoffers,

and xbeating for the backs of fools.


24  fScoffer is the name of the arrogant, haughty man

who acts with arrogant pride.


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!
