Proverbs 1:24-30

24 a  Because I have called and b  you refused to listen,
have c  stretched out my hand and no one has heeded,
25because you have d  ignored all my counsel
and e  would have none of my reproof,
26I also f  will laugh at your calamity;
I will mock when g  terror strikes you,
27when terror strikes you like h  a storm
and your calamity comes like a whirlwind,
when distress and anguish come upon you.
28 i  Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer;
they will seek me diligently but will not find me.
29Because they j  hated knowledge
and k  did not choose the fear of the  Lord,
30 l  would have none of my counsel
and m  despised all my reproof,

Luke 16:14
