Proverbs 1:22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? 3:34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly. 9:7 He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot. 8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee. 13:1 A wise son heareth his father's instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke. 14:6 A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth. 15:12 A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise. 19:25 Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, and he will understand knowledge. 29 Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools. 21:11 When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge. 24 Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath. 22:10 Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease. 24:9 The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men. Isaiah 29:20 For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off: Hosea 7:5 In the day of our king the princes have made him sick with bottles of wine; he stretched out his hand with scorners.
