Bible verses about "mocking god" | ISV

Proverbs 1:1-33

1 The proverbs of David's son Solomon, king of Israel. 2 These proverbs are for gaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insight; 3 for acquiring the discipline that produces wise behavior, righteousness, justice, and upright living; 4 for giving prudence to the naïve, knowledge and discretion to the young. 5 Let the wise listen and increase their learning; let the person of understanding receive guidance 6 in understanding proverbs, clever sayings, words of the wise, and their riddles. 7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. 8 My son, listen to your father's instruction, and do not let go of your mother's teaching. 9 They will be a graceful wreath for your head and a chain for your neck. 10 My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent. 11 If they say, "Come with us! Let's lie in wait for blood; let's ambush some innocent person for no reason at all. 12 Let's swallow them alive like Sheol, and whole like those who go down into the pit. 13 We'll find all kinds of valuable wealth, and we'll fill our houses with spoil. 14 Throw your lot in with us, and all of us will have one purse." 15 My son, do not go along with them, and keep your feet away from their paths! 16 For they run toward evil; these enticers shed blood without hesitation. 17 Look, it is useless to spread a net in full view of all the birds, 18 but these people lie in wait for their own blood. They ambush only themselves. 19 Such is the way of all those who seek illicit gain {— } it takes away the lives of those who possess it. 20 Wisdom cries out in the street; she raises her voice in the public squares. 21 She calls out at the busiest part of the noisy streets, and at the entrance to the gates of the city she utters her words: 22 "You naïve ones, how long will you love naiveté? And how long will scoffers delight in scoffing or fools hate knowledge? 23 Return to my correction! Look, I will pour out my spirit on you, and I will make my words known to you. 24 "Because I called out to you and you refused to respond {— } I appealed, but no one paid attention {— } 25 because you neglected all my advice and did not want my correction, 26 I will laugh at your calamity. I will mock when what you fear comes, 27 when what you dread comes like a storm, and your calamity comes on like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. 28 Then they will call out to me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently, but they will not find me. 29 Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the LORD; 30 they did not want my advice, and they rejected all my correction. 31 They will eat the fruit of their way, and they will be filled with their own devices. 32 Indeed, the waywardness of the naïve will kill them, and the laziness of fools will destroy them. 33 But the person who listens to me will live safely and will be secure from the fear of evil.

1 Corinthians 1:10

10 Brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus the Messiah, I urge all of you to be in agreement and not to have divisions among you, so that you may be perfectly united in your understanding and opinions.

Isaiah 1:1-31

Ezekiel 37:1-28

Psalms 1:1

1 How blessed is the person, who does not take the advice of the wicked, who does not stand on the path with sinners, and who does not sit in the seat of mockers.

Psalms 14:1-4

1 To the Director: A Davidic Psalm. Fools say to themselves, "There is no God." They are corrupt and commit evil deeds; not one of them practices what is good. 2 The LORD looks down from the heavens upon humanity to see if anyone shows discernment as he searches for God. 3 All have turned away, together they have become corrupt; no one practices what is good, not even one. 4 Will those who do evil ever learn? They devour my people like they devour bread, and never call on the LORD.

Matthew 5:11

11 "How blessed are you whenever people insult you, persecute you, and say all sorts of evil things against you falsely because of me!

Romans 2:6-8

6 For he will repay everyone according to what that person has done: 7 eternal life to those who strive for glory, honor, and immortality by patiently doing good; 8 but wrath and fury for those who in their selfish pride refuse to believe the truth and practice wickedness instead.

Acts 4:12

12 There is no salvation by anyone else, for there is no other name under heaven given among people by which we must be saved."

Psalms 1:1-6

1 How blessed is the person, who does not take the advice of the wicked, who does not stand on the path with sinners, and who does not sit in the seat of mockers. 2 But he delights in the LORD's instruction, and meditates in his instruction day and night. 3 He will be like a tree planted by streams of water, yielding its fruit in its season, and whose leaf does not wither. He will prosper in everything he does. 4 But this is not the case with the wicked. They are like chaff that the wind blows away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not escape judgment, nor will sinners have a place in the assembly of the righteous. 6 For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will be destroyed.

Galatians 6:7

7 Stop being deceived; God is not to be ridiculed. A person harvests whatever he plants:
