The Fools arsenal

Job 21
13   They spend their days in wealth, And in a moment go down to the grave.
14   Yet they say to God, 'Depart from us, For we do not desire the knowledge of Your ways.
15   Who is the Almighty, that we should serve Him? And what profit do we have if we pray to Him?'
16   Indeed their prosperity is not in their hand; The counsel of the wicked is far from me.

Psalm 10
4    The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of his thoughts.
7    His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and oppression; Under his tongue is trouble and iniquity.

Psalm 53
1    The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are Corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; there is none who does good.

Proverbs 1
22   How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? For scorners delight in their scorning, And fools hate knowledge.
23   Turn at my reproof; surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my
words known to you.
24   Because I have called and you refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no one regarded;
25   But you disdained all my counsel, And would have none of my reproof,
26   I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes;
27   When your terror comes like a storm, and your destruction comes like a whirlwind, When distress and anguish come upon you.
28   "Then shall they call on me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.
29   Because they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of the LORD,
30   They would have none of my counsel And despised all my reproof,
31   Therefore they shall eat of the fruit of their own way, And be filled to the full with their own fancies.
32   For the turning away of the simple will slay them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them.
33   But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil."

Proverbs 9
6    Forsake foolishness and live, And go in the way of understanding.
7    "He who reproves a scoffer gets shame for himself, And he who rebukes a wicked man gets himself a blemish.
8    Do not reprove a scoffer, lest he hate you; Rebuke a wise man, and he will love you.
9    Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; Teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
10   The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Proverbs 10
23   To do evil is like sport to a fool, but a man of understanding has wisdom.
24   The fear of the wicked will come upon him, And the desire of the righteous will be granted.
28   The hope of the righteous will be gladness, but the expectation of the wicked will perish.
29   The way of the LORD is strength to the upright, But destruction will come to the workers of iniquity.

Proverbs 12
15   The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but he who heads counsel is wise.

Proverbs 13
1    A wise son heeds his father's instruction, But a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.

Proverbs 14
16   A wise man fears and departs from evil. But a fool rages, and is self-confident.
33   Wisdom rests quietly in the heart of him who has understanding, But what is in the heart of fools is made known.

Proverbs 15
12   A scoffer does not love one who reproves him, Nor will he go to the wise.
21   Folly is joy to him who is destitute of discernment, But a man of understanding walks uprightly.

Proverbs 23
9    Do not speak in the hearing of a fool, For he will despise the wisdom of your words.

Proverbs 29
11   A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back.

Matthew 7
6    "Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.

Romans 3
13   "Their throat is an open tomb; With their tongues they have practiced deceit"; "The poison of asps is under their lips";
14   "Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness."

2 Corinthians 5
13   For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; or if we are of sound mind, it is for you.
14   For the love of Christ constrains us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died;
15   and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
17   Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
18   Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,
19   that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
20   Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God.
