_ _ scorners — (Psalms 1:1) — who despise, as well as reject, truth.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Proverbs 1:22

How long, ye (s) simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

(s) Wisdom reproves three kinds of men, the foolish or simple who err out of ignorance, the mockers who cannot stand to be taught, and the fools who are drowned in worldly lusts and hate the knowledge of godliness.
