A. Judgements are for scoffers

"Judgements are prepared for scoffers,"

Judgements or "shephet" in Hebrew which means:

1. sentence

2. infliction - the act of laying on or applying; as the infliction of torment or of punishment.

As for us believers, it will no longer be the case because CHRIST personally took our infliction that was meant for us.

1 Peter 2:24 (Amplified Bible)

2:24 He personally bore our sins in His [own] body on the tree [as on an altar and offered Himself on it], that we might die (cease to exist) to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed.

2 Corinthians 5:21 (Amplified Bible)

5:21 For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness].

Isaiah 53:5 (Amplified Bible)

53:5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.

Prepared or "kun" in Hebrew which means:

1. to be erect

2. to set up

3. establish, fix, prepare, apply

4. figuratively: appoint, render sure, proper or prosperous

Scoffers, scorners or "luts" in Hebrew which means:

1. to make mouths

2. scoff - to treat with insolent ridicule, mockery or contumelious language; to manifest contempt by derision; with at.

3. make a mock, mocker, scorn, teacher

4. scorn - extreme contempt; that disdain which springs from a person's opinion of the meanness of an object, and a consciousness or belief of his own superiority or worth.

5. mock - properly, to imitate; to mimick; hence, to imitate in contempt or derision; to mimick for the sake of derision; to deride by mimicry.

Illustration: To scoff at religion and sacred things is evidence of extreme weakness and folly, as well as of wickedness.

Proverbs 3:34 (Amplified Bible)

3:34 Though He scoffs at the scoffers and scorns the scorners, yet He gives His undeserved favor to the low [in rank], the humble, and the afflicted.
