Proverbs 21

11 If you punish a mocker, the simpleminded become wise;
if you instruct the wise, they will be all the wiser.

  • Mediaan

    Uh? I take it this is some southern states simplification of Proverbs 21:11.

    To me, the meanings are not the same.

    I look it up in the KJ version.

    Yes, you can turn everything into verbal porridge for the simple minded, but the precise wider old language expresses more.
