34 Toward the cscorners he dis scornful,
7 Whoever corrects a scoffer gets himself abuse,
and he who reproves a wicked man incurs injury.
8 lDo not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you;
mreprove a wise man, and he will love you.
12 sIf you are wise, you are wise for yourself;
if you scoff, you alone will bear it.
13 A wise son hears his father’s instruction,
but qa scoffer does not listen to rebuke.
6 nA scoffer seeks wisdom oin vain,
but pknowledge is easy for a man of understanding.
12 uA scoffer vdoes not like to be reproved;
he will not go to the wise.
5 Whoever mocks the poor rinsults his Maker;
25 qStrike ra scoffer, and the simple will slearn prudence;
treprove a man of understanding, and he will gain knowledge.
24 f“Scoffer” is the name of the arrogant, haughty man
who acts with arrogant pride.
10 cDrive out a scoffer, dand strife will go out,
and equarreling and abuse will cease.
9 gThe devising1 of folly is sin,
and hthe scoffer is an abomination to mankind.
8 oScoffers set a city aflame,
but the wise turn away wrath.
17 The eye that nmocks a father
and oscorns to obey a mother
will pbe picked out by qthe ravens of the valley
and eaten by the vultures.
