24 (A)Because I have called and you refused,
I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded,
25 Because you (B)disdained all my counsel,
And would have none of my rebuke,
26 (C)I also will laugh at your calamity;
I will mock when your terror comes,
27 When (D)your terror comes like a storm,
And your destruction comes like a whirlwind,
When distress and anguish come upon you.

28 “Then(E) they will call on me, but I will not answer;
They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.
29 Because they (F)hated knowledge
And did not (G)choose the fear of the Lord,
30 (H)They would have none of my counsel
And despised my every rebuke.
31 Therefore (I)they shall eat the fruit of their own way,
And be filled to the full with their own fancies.
32 For the [a]turning away of the simple will slay them,
And the complacency of fools will destroy them;

  1. Proverbs 1:32 waywardness

24 Because (A)I called and you (B)refused,
I (C)stretched out my hand and no one paid attention;
25 And you (D)neglected all my advice
And did not (E)want my rebuke;
26 I will also (F)laugh at your (G)disaster;
I will mock when your (H)dread comes,
27 When your dread comes like a storm
And your disaster comes like a (I)whirlwind,
When distress and anguish come upon you.
28 Then they will (J)call on me, but I will not answer;
They will (K)seek me diligently but will not find me,
29 Because they (L)hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the Lord.
30 They (M)did not accept my advice,
They disdainfully rejected every rebuke from me.
31 So they shall (N)eat of the fruit of their own way,
And be (O)filled with their own schemes.
32 For the (P)faithlessness of the naive will kill them,
And the complacency of fools will destroy them.

“Because I called and you refused [to answer],
I stretched out my hand and no one has paid attention [to my offer];(A)
25 
And you treated all my counsel as nothing
And would not accept my reprimand,
26 
I also will laugh at your disaster;
I will mock when your dread and panic come,
27 
When your dread and panic come like a storm,
And your disaster comes like a whirlwind,
When anxiety and distress come upon you [as retribution].
28 
“Then they will call upon me (Wisdom), but I will not answer;
They will seek me eagerly but they will not find me,(B)
29 
Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the Lord [that is, obeying Him with reverence and awe-filled respect],(C)
30 
They would not accept my counsel,
And they spurned all my rebuke.

“Therefore they shall eat of the fruit of their own [wicked] way
And be satiated with [the penalty of] their own devices.

24 But since you refuse(A) to listen when I call(B)
    and no one pays attention(C) when I stretch out my hand,
25 since you disregard all my advice
    and do not accept my rebuke,
26 I in turn will laugh(D) when disaster(E) strikes you;
    I will mock(F) when calamity overtakes you(G)
27 when calamity overtakes you like a storm,

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 at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

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

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

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