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 devices.
The condemnation of these scorners is that they hated wisdom’s instructions, and stubbornly refused to reverence God. They had no place in their lives for the good counsel contained in the Word of God, and laughed when the Scriptures condemned their ungodly words and works. They weren’t afraid of God or of His rebuke. Now they must pay the price of their willfulness and suffer the consequences of their rebellion.
