23 If you turn at my reproof,[a]
behold, I will (A)pour out my spirit to you;
    I will make my words known to you.
24 (B)Because I have called and (C)you refused to listen,
    have (D)stretched out my hand and no one has heeded,
25 because you have (E)ignored all my counsel
    and (F)would have none of my reproof,
26 I also (G)will laugh at your calamity;
    I will mock when (H)terror strikes you,
27 when terror strikes you like (I)a storm
    and your calamity comes like a whirlwind,
    when distress and anguish come upon you.
28 (J)Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer;
    they will seek me diligently but will not find me.
29 Because they (K)hated knowledge
    and (L)did not choose the fear of the Lord,
30 (M)would have none of my counsel
    and (N)despised all my reproof,
31 therefore they shall eat (O)the fruit of their way,
    and have (P)their fill of their own devices.
32 For the simple are killed by (Q)their turning away,
    and (R)the complacency of fools destroys them;
