Proverbs 1:24-31

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,
31therefore they shall eat n  the fruit of their way,
and have o  their fill of their own devices.

Proverbs 13:13

13Whoever p  despises q  the word brings destruction on himself,
but he who reveres the commandment will be r  rewarded.

Proverbs 16:2

2 s  All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes,
but the  Lord t  weighs the spirit.

Isaiah 50:2

2 u  Why, when I came, was there no man;
why, when I called, was there no one to answer?
v  Is my hand shortened, that it cannot redeem?
Or have I no power to deliver?
w  Behold, by my rebuke x  I dry up the sea,
y  I make the rivers a desert;
z  their fish stink for lack of water
and die of thirst.

Isaiah 65:12

12I will destine you to the sword,
and all of you shall bow down to the slaughter,
aa  because, when I called, you did not answer;
when I spoke, you did not listen,
ab  but you did what was evil in my eyes
and chose what I did not delight in.”

Jeremiah 7:13

13And now, because you have done all these things, declares the  Lord, and ac  when I spoke to you persistently you did not listen, and ad  when I called you, you did not answer,

Jeremiah 7:26-27

26 ae  Yet they did not listen to me or incline their ear af  but stiffened their neck. ag  They did worse than their fathers.

27 ah  “So you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not listen to you. ai  You shall call to them, but they will not answer you.
