Mockers resent correction, so they avoid the wise.
Read Proverbs 15:12 Using Other Translations
A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise.
A scoffer does not like to be reproved; he will not go to the wise.
Mockers hate to be corrected, so they stay away from the wise.
