Although he is scornful to arrogant scoffers, yet he shows favor to the humble.
If you are wise, you are wise to your own advantage, but if you are a mocker, you alone must bear it.
So now, do not mock, or your chains will become heavier! For I have heard a message about decreed destruction, from the sovereign master, the Lord who commands armies, against the entire land.
For tyrants will disappear, those who taunt will vanish, and all those who love to do wrong will be eliminated --
Watch out, then, that what is spoken about by the prophets does not happen to you:
2 Peter 3:3
Above all, understand this: In the last days blatant scoffers will come, being propelled by their own evil urges
Suddenly he went after her like an ox that goes to the slaughter, like a stag prancing into a trapper's snare
Wisdom is found in the words of the discerning person, but the one who lacks wisdom will be disciplined.
A rebuke makes a greater impression on a discerning person than a hundred blows on a fool.
A whip for the horse and a bridle for the donkey, and a rod for the backs of fools!
"For the Lord disciplines the one he loves and chastises every son he accepts."
