This group of verses begin with a scorner.  There are some people who are against everything that is good.  Our work is being divided more and more this way. 
Then we have the heart of a person of understanding seeking knowledge.  It is a mistake for any one of us to say, "I am complete. I don't need anything more."  This could reveal how short sided we are.
