Bring on the wisdom! LOL! We’ve had 16 chapters of worthless ‘wisdom’ so I’m sure this chapter will be better, right? 🙂
“Whoever mocks the poor shows contempt for their Maker; whoever gloats over disaster will not go unpunished.” – Proverbs 17:5
Here is one of the few good verses in the Bible. One shouldn’t mock the poor nor should one gloat over a disaster. The part about the Maker is bullshit, but the rest is good.
“Better to meet a bear robbed of her cubs than a fool bent on folly.” – Proverbs 17:12
Mother bears are quite protective of their cubs. I’d much rather face the fool than a pissed off mother bear!
“To have a fool for a child brings grief; there is no joy for the parent of a godless fool.” – Proverbs 17:21
The ‘wisdom’ this chapter has to offer is advice to parents to disown their children because their children didn’t fall for the indoctrination.
