THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

1:24Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

1:25But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

1:26I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

1:27When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

1:28Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

1:29For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:

1:30They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

1:31Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

1:32For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
