add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
