Proverbs 1:24-31

ERV(i) 24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; 25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: 26 I also will laugh in [the day of ]your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; 27 When your fear cometh as a storm, and your calamity cometh on as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish come upon you. 28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me diligently, but they shall not find me: 29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: 30 They would none of my counsel; they despised all my reproof: 31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
