1:22 “How long will you simpletons love naiveté?
How long will mockers delight in mockery
and fools hate knowledge?
9:7 Whoever corrects a mocker is asking for insult;
whoever reproves a wicked person receives abuse.
9:8 Do not reprove a mocker or he will hate you;
reprove a wise person and he will love you.
13:1 A wise son accepts his father’s discipline,
but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.
15:12 The scorner does not love one who corrects him;
he will not go to the wise.
