I’ll get straight to it today because I love the first verse of this chapter.
“Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise.” – Proverbs 20:1
LOL! Looking for a fight? Beer is your choice! LOL!
“The righteous lead blameless lives; blessed are their children after them.” – Proverbs 20:7
The Bible tells us no one is blameless so this verse makes no sense. Or if it does, there are no blessed children and no righteous adults.
“Differing weights and differing measures—the Lord detests them both.” – Proverbs 20:10
Don’t fuck with God’s weights and measures!!!
“Even small children are known by their actions, so is their conduct really pure and upright?” – Proverbs 20:11
Holy fuck, now the Bible is going after the children.
“If someone curses their father or mother, their lamp will be snuffed out in pitch darkness.” – Proverbs 20:20
If this was true then all of humanity would be gone after one generation! Every child will curse their mother and father at times. It’s part of what we call childhood.
“The Lord detests differing weights, and dishonest scales do not please him.” – Proverbs 20:23
God hates it so much when you fuck with his weights that he listed it twice in this chapter! LOL!
I’m not sure I can get over how important weights and measures are in the Bible. Rape? No problem. Slavery? A-Okay. Murdering children? Go right ahead. Change the weights? DON’T YOU FUCKING DARE!!!
