Because I have called,
and ye refused; I have stretched
out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at
nought all my counsel, and would
none of my reproof: I also will laugh at
your calamity; I will mock when
your fear cometh; When your fear cometh
as desolation, and your
destruction cometh as a whirlwind;
when distress and anguish cometh
upon you. Then shall they call
upon me, but I will not answer;
they shall seek me early, but they
shall not find me: For that they hated
knowledge, and did not choose the
fear of the LORD: They would none of my
counsel: they despised all my
reproof. Therefore shall they
eat of the fruit of their own way,
and be filled with their own
Every one that is proud
in heart is an abomination to the
LORD: though hand join in hand, he
shall not be unpunished.
When the scorner is
punished, the simple is made wise:

he receiveth knowledge.
If thou sayest, Behold,
we knew it not; doth not he that
pondereth the heart consider it?
and he that keepeth thy soul, doth
not he know it? and shall not he
render to every man according to
A whip for the horse, a
bridle for the ass, and a rod for
the fool's back.
He, that being often
reproved hardeneth his neck, shall
suddenly be destroyed, and that
against an evil work is not
executed speedily, therefore the
heart of the sons of men is fully
set in them to do evil. Though a sinner do evil
an hundred times, and his days be
prolonged, yet surely I know that
it shall be well with them that
fear God, which fear before him: But it shall not be
well with the wicked, neither
shall he prolong his days, which
are as a shadow; because he
feareth not before God.
And many of them that
sleep in the dust of the earth
shall awake, some to everlasting
life, and some to shame and
But I say unto you,
That whosoever is angry with his
brother without a cause shall be
in danger of the judgment: and
whosoever shall say to his
brother, Raca, shall be in danger
of the council: but whosoever
shall say, Thou fool, shall be in
danger of hell fire.
And fear not them which kill the
body, but are not able to kill the
soul: but rather fear him which is
able to destroy both soul and body
For the Son of man shall come in
the glory of his Father with his
angels; and then he shall reward
every man according to his works.
Ye serpents, ye
generation of vipers, how can ye
escape the damnation of hell?
Then shall he say also unto them
on the left hand, Depart from me,
ye cursed, into everlasting fire,
prepared for the devil and his
angels: And these shall go away
into everlasting punishment: but
the righteous into life eternal.
And that servant, which
knew his lord's will, and prepared
not himself, neither did according
to his will, shall be beaten with
many stripes. But he that knew not,
and did commit things worthy of
stripes, shall be beaten with few
stripes. For unto whomsoever much
is given, of him shall be much
required: and to whom men have
committed much, of him they will
ask the more.
How shall we escape, if
we neglect so great salvation;
which at the first began to be
spoken by the Lord, and was
confirmed unto us by them that
The same shall drink of
the wine of the wrath of God,
which is poured out without
mixture into the cup of his
indignation; and he shall be
tormented with fire and brimstone
in the presence of the holy
angels, and in the presence of the
Lamb: And the smoke of their
torment ascendeth up for ever and
ever: and they have no rest day
nor night, who worship the beast
and his image, and whosoever
receiveth the mark of his name.
