How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
Surely he scorneth the scorners : but he giveth grace unto the lowly .
He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot.
Reprove not a scorner , lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
If thou be wise , thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest , thou alone shalt bear it.
A wise son heareth his father's instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke.
A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth .
Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour.
A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise.
Smite a scorner , and the simple will beware : and reprove one that hath understanding , and he will understand knowledge.
An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity.
Judgments are prepared for scorners , and stripes for the back of fools.
Wine is a mocker , strong drink is raging : and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise .
When the scorner is punished , the simple is made wise : and when the wise is instructed , he receiveth knowledge.
Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.
Cast out the scorner , and contention shall go out ; yea, strife and reproach shall cease .
The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.
