CBL - This may seem petty, but it simply means that they will reap what they have sown that is, by rejecting Wisdom’s teaching they cut themselves off from her help. Even if they were to hear her words at that point, they would sound like mockery, like most good advice given too late. Similarly, God’s mockery of the mutinous nations (Ps. 7:9ff- note ) does not indicate personal spite or malice, but his judgment upon their sin of rebellion.

Sidlow Baxter - Proverbs are meant to be to our practical life what the Psalms are to our devotional life. This is there general significance. Here are pointed precepts for practical prudence. Here are laws from heaven for life on earth. Here are counsels from above for conduct here below. Here are the words of the wise on the ways of the world. Here is homely wit for the daily walk but it is human wit shot through with Divine wisdom and he who is well versed in it will be soundly guided and safely guarded. We may put it that the general message of this Book of Proverbs is Prudence through Precept.
