    Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:8

    No castigues al burlador, para que no te aborrezca; castiga al sabio, y te amará.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. Reprove not a scorner, lest he
    hate thee , etc.] For wicked men are apt to hate those that publicly rebuke them, ( Amos 5:10). Hence minister’s of the word are of all men most hated; though this also should be bore with, could it be thought, or there was any reason to believe, that the reproof would be of any service. The scorner here, and in the preceding verses, may not only design profane sinners, sensualists, and atheists, that despise all religion, and scoff at all that is good; but also proud scornful Pharisees, such who derided Christ himself, and trusted in themselves, and despised others, Christ and his apostles, and their ministrations, ( Luke 16:14 18:9); and such, as Christ came not to call them himself, so he bid his disciples let them alone, ( Matthew 9:13 15:14); rebuke a wise [man], and he will love thee ; as David did Nathan; and who was determined to take kindly the reproof of any righteous man, ( <19E105> Psalm 141:5). Such who are spiritually wise will be thankful for the reproof of Gospel ministers, and even of private Christians, and will love and esteem them for their faithfulness and uprightness, and for the good which they themselves receive hereby.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-12 -
    Christ has prepared ordinances to which his people are admitted, and by which nourishment is given here to those that believe in him, as wel as mansions in heaven hereafter. The ministers of the gospel go fort to invite the guests. The call is general, and shuts out none that d not shut out themselves. Our Saviour came, not to call the righteous but sinners; not the wise in their own eyes, who say they see. We mus keep from the company and foolish pleasures of the ungodly, or we neve can enjoy the pleasures of a holy life. It is vain to seek the compan of wicked men in the hope of doing them good; we are far more likely to be corrupted by them. It is not enough to forsake the foolish, we mus join those that walk in wisdom. There is no true wisdom but in the way of religion, no true life but in the end of that way. Here is the happiness of those that embrace it. A man cannot be profitable to God it is for our own good. Observe the shame and ruin of those who sligh it. God is not the Author of sin: and Satan can only tempt, he cannot force. Thou shalt bear the loss of that which thou scornest: it wil add to thy condemnation.
