Bible: Prov 1:25-32

1:25 because 1  you neglected 2  all my advice,

and did not comply 3  with my rebuke,

1:26 so 4  I myself will laugh 5  when disaster strikes you, 6 

I will mock when what you dread 7  comes,

1:27 when what you dread 8  comes like a whirlwind, 9 

and disaster strikes you 10  like a devastating storm, 11 

when distressing trouble 12  comes on you.

1:28 Then they will call to me, but I will not answer;

they will diligently seek 13  me, but they will not find me.

1:29 Because 14  they hated moral knowledge, 15 

and did not choose to fear the Lord, 16 

1:30 they did not comply with my advice,

they spurned 17  all my rebuke.

1:31 Therefore 18  they will eat from the fruit 19  of their way, 20 

and they will be stuffed full 21  of their own counsel.

1:32 For the waywardness 22  of the

simpletons will kill 23  them,

and the careless ease 24  of fools will destroy them.
