Bible verses about scorners
Here is the scorn Webster definition– an expression of contempt or derision. Scorners love to mock the Lord, but God has made it clear in His word that He will not be mocked. All day long they scoff at Christianity, sin, and believers. You can’t teach them anything because they have hardened their hearts and will not listen to the truth. They suppress the truth in their hearts and pride is leading them to hell.
I had scorners call me names like bigot, stupid, moron, fool, but Scripture makes it clear who are the real fools. The fool says in his heart, “There is no God- Psalm 14:1. Nowadays we find that many false converts are scorning the right ways of the Lord. What was considered sin back in the day is no longer sin. People are using the grace of God to indulge in lasciviousness. Are you rebelling and scorning God’s Word? Are you taking God’s name in vain?
What does the Bible say?
1. Proverbs 24:8-9 “The one who plans to do evil will be called a scheming person. A foolish scheme is sin, and the scorner is an abomination to people.”
2. Proverbs 3:33-34 “The LORD’s curse is on the household of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous. Although he is scornful to arrogant scoffers, yet he shows favor to the humble.”

4. Proverbs 29:8-9 “Scornful people inflame a city, but those who are wise turn away wrath. If a wise person goes to court with a foolish person, there is no peace whether he is angry or laughs. Bloodthirsty people hate someone with integrity; as for the upright, they seek his life.”
5. Proverbs 21:10-11 “The appetite of the wicked desires evil; his neighbor is shown no favor in his eyes. When a scorner is punished, the naive becomes wise; when a wise person is instructed, he gains knowledge.”
You can’t correct scorners. They will not listen.

12. Psalm 44:13-16 “You have made us a reproach to our neighbors, the scorn and derision of those around us. You have made us a byword among the nations; the peoples shake their heads at us.
