Proverbs 1:30 Meaning and Commentary

Proverbs 1:30

They would none of my counsel
Neither his doctrines nor his ordinances; nor would they attend to the wholesome counsel and advice he gave them in his sermons upon the mount, and in other discourses of his at other times and places; they despised all my reproof;
for their hypocrisy, uncleanness, covetousness, and other sins they were addicted to; see ( Matthew 23:1-36 ) ; but they "derided" him for it, ( Luke 16:14 ) ; where the same word is used as is by the Septuagint here. These things are repeated from ( Proverbs 1:25 ) , to observe their ingratitude, and how just was their ruin, and what the true cause of it.
