Dislike which turns to contempt and derision. Scorn often appears in some Bible translations where scoff appears in others. See Scoffer. Scorn is often expressed by laughter (2 Kings 19:21; 2 Chronicles 30:10). In deep trouble psalmists often felt themselves scorned (Psalms 22:6; Psalms 31:11; Psalms 39:8; Psalms 44:13; Psalms 80:6; Psalms 89:41; Psalms 119:22; Psalms 123:4). God scorns the wicked (Proverbs 3:34), who, in turn, scorn Him (2 Samuel 12:14). When His people refuse to be faithful, God can scorn them and their worship, expressed in destruction (Lamentations 2:7).
