Proverbs 1:22-24

“Simpletons! How long will you wallow in ignorance?
Cynics! How long will you feed your cynicism?
Idiots! How long will you refuse to learn?
About face! I can revise your life.
Look, I’m ready to pour out my spirit on you;
I’m ready to tell you all I know.
As it is, I’ve called, but you’ve turned a deaf ear;
I’ve reached out to you, but you’ve ignored me.

A scorner was once a simpleton but now he is a scorner, but there still is some hope for the scorner. However, if he doesn’t turn back then he will become a fool. The difference between the scorner and the fool is the fool is immovable. Proverbs 15:14 An intelligent person is always eager to take in more truth;
fools feed on fast-food fads and fancies. Proverbs 14:9 The stupid ridicule right and wrong,     but a moral life is a favored life. These verses describe a scorner that has crossed over to being a fool.

Proverbs 13:1

Intelligent children listen to their parents;
foolish children do their own thing.

Proverbs 15:12

Know-it-alls don’t like being told what to do;
they avoid the company of wise men and women.

Proverbs 9:7-8

If you reason with an arrogant cynic, you’ll get slapped in the face;
confront bad behavior and get a kick in the shins.
So don’t waste your time on a scoffer;
all you’ll get for your pains is abuse.
But if you correct those who care about life,
that’s different—they’ll love you for it!
Save your breath for the wise—they’ll be wiser for it;
tell good people what you know—they’ll profit from it.

Proverbs 13:1,13

Intelligent children listen to their parents;
foolish children do their own thing.

Ignore the Word and suffer;
honor God’s commands and grow rich.

IF I HAVE TO PICK ONE KEY VERSE IT WOULD BE THIS:

Proverbs 15:12

Know-it-alls don’t like being told what to do;
they avoid the company of wise men and women.
