2 Peter 3:3
knowing this first, that in the last days mockers will come, walking after their own lusts,
The proud and haughty man, "scoffer" is his name; he works in the arrogance of pride.
Penalties are prepared for scoffers, and beatings for the backs of fools.
2 Timothy 3:1
But know this, that in the last days, grievous times will come.
They said to you that "In the last time there will be mockers, walking after their own ungodly lusts."
A scoffer doesn't love to be reproved; he will not go to the wise.
For the ruthless is brought to nothing, and the scoffer ceases, and all those who are alert to do evil are cut off --
Wine is a mocker, and beer is a brawler. Whoever is led astray by them is not wise.
Blessed is the man who doesn't walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers;
2 Peter 3:4
and saying, "Where is the promise of his coming? For, from the day that the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation."
Surely he mocks the mockers, but he gives grace to the humble.
Mockers stir up a city, but wise men turn away anger.
Like the profane mockers in feasts, they gnashed their teeth at me.
Don't reprove a scoffer, lest he hate you. Reprove a wise man, and he will love you.
Now therefore don't be scoffers, lest your bonds be made strong; for I have heard a decree of destruction from the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, on the whole earth.
He who corrects a mocker invites insult. He who reproves a wicked man invites abuse.
Surely there are mockers with me. My eye dwells on their provocation.
The schemes of folly are sin. The mocker is detested by men.
If you are wise, you are wise for yourself. If you mock, you alone will bear it.
"How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? How long will mockers delight themselves in mockery, and fools hate knowledge?
A scoffer seeks wisdom, and doesn't find it, but knowledge comes easily to a discerning person.
Drive out the mocker, and strife will go out; yes, quarrels and insults will stop.
Flog a scoffer, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke one who has understanding, and he will gain knowledge.
Behold, you scoffers, and wonder, and perish; for I work a work in your days, a work which you will in no way believe, if one declares it to you.'"
I didn't sit in the assembly of those who make merry, nor rejoiced; I sat alone because of your hand; for you have filled me with indignation.
Don't enter into the path of the wicked. Don't walk in the way of evil men.
When the mocker is punished, the simple gains wisdom. When the wise is instructed, he receives knowledge.
A wise son listens to his father's instruction, but a scoffer doesn't listen to rebuke.
