- The Word of God, in particular, the book of Proverbs, admonishes us about being wise versus foolish.
- While foolish is a general term and the opposite of wisdom, there are different types of foolish people.
- This lesson will focus on the scornful fool (in Hebrew, the word for scorn is “luts“, defined as making mouths at), who is void of wisdom and understanding (and is not interested in it), often resorts to mockery and disrespect to get back at those who are walking in wisdom and/or try and correct him/her.
The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men (Proverbs 24:9).
How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? (Proverbs 1:22).
A wise son heareth his father’s instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke (Proverbs 13:1).
A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth (Proverbs 14:6).
A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise (Proverbs 15:12).
Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath (Proverbs 29:8).
When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge (Proverbs 21:11).
Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools (Proverbs 19:29).
