He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.’ — Proverbs 29:1
It is wholly impossible that a person should be frequently and faithfully admonished for his crime, and yet experience no alteration in is condition. His rancorous pride will be augmented, and his conscience seared as with a hot iron. But the day comes that shall burn as an oven. Then his stiff neck and his stout heart will not exempt him from the terrors that shall overtake the soul of every guilty culprit that shall stand at the judgment seat of God.
