1:24 However, because I called but you refused to listen,
because I stretched out my hand but no one was paying attention,
25 and you neglected all my advice,
and did not comply with my rebuke,
26 so I myself will laugh when disaster strikes you;
I will mock when what you dread comes,
27 when what you dread comes like a whirlwind,
and disaster strikes you like a devastating storm,
when distressing trouble comes on you.
28 Then they will call to me, but I will not answer;
they will diligently seek me, but they will not find me.
29 Because they hated moral knowledge
and did not choose to fear the Lord,
30 they did not comply with my advice;
they spurned all my rebuke.
31 Therefore they will eat from the fruit of their way,
and they will be stuffed full of their own counsel.
