Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

July 3 - Morning

"Whoever corrects a mocker invites insults;
whoever rebukes the wicked incurs abuse.

Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you;
rebuke the wise and they will love you.

Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still;
teach the righteous and they will add to their learning."

- Proverbs 9:7-9

The Wise Become Wiser While the Mocker Insults His Instructor    

The same book of wisdom that presents insights and nuggets of truth to improve life and lead men to success also tells us there are people who cannot be helped. Wisdom knows when to teach men,
but wisdom also knows when to walk away from the man who will not listen.

The reality is that some men are mockers who refuse to respond positively to rebuke or correction. Instead of hearing the wisdom and truth in the words of correction, the mocker hears a personal challenge, and responds with hatred by abusing and insulting the one trying to help. Since you are not able to help the mocker and any attempt will simply bring abuse and insult to you, it is best to be silent and let the mocker go to his destruction alone.

On the other hand, the man with wisdom will receive the rebuke, make corrections and become wiser. The righteous man is the man who is willing to learn. The wise and righteous man is the one willing to change. The wise man does not feel threatened when learning and does not perceive correction as an insult. The righteous man does not abuse or insult those who are helping.

The wicked man will abuse his teacher and the mocker will insult the man offering wisdom.

The Egyptian sage Ankhsheshonqy (100-30 BC) wrote in a similar way when he taught:

“Do not instruct a fool, lest he hate you.
Do not instruct him who will not listen to you.”

  Christian Quote from Church History
"Many of us want
a word from God,
but we don’t want
the Word of God
We know enough to own a Bible, but...In a world where the only absolute is that there are no absolutes, there is little room left for the authoritative Word of God as revealed in the Bible."
- Howard Hendricks

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Nabal (Hb) – fool (Eng) - The Hebrew word nabal means “fool, foolish.” The basic verb identifies an unconsidered act that is either inappropriate or stupid as in Proverbs 30:32.

In Deuteronomy 32:15 and Micah 7:6 nabal is used in a word form that means
"to considering something insignificant." In Jeremiah 14:21 and Nahum 3:6 this
same form includes an external act that follows the attitude.

Isaiah 32:6 says, “the nabal speaks nebala (folly).”
In 1 Samuel 25:25 is used as a personal name of a man that rejected David.

  2 Kings 15:30 states that Hoshea killed Pekah, the
king of northern Israel, and Hoshea began to rule Israel. Then in 2 Kings 17:3-6 King Hoshea is said to have brought tribute to the king
of Assyria. The Assyrian king records in his inscription from the same time the same events when he writes,
“Omri-land (Israel)…all its inhabitants, their possessions I led to Assyria. They overthrew their king Pekah and I placed Hoshea as king over them. I received from them 10 talents of gold and 1000 talents of silver as their tribute and brought them to Assyria.” (Details)
Confession to Action   Facts and Information

I will identify those who need help and are willing to receive advice.
Likewise, I will avoid the mocker and not waste my time with the wicked.

  "My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment,
do not let them out of your sight; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck."
- Proverbs 3:21-22

Photo of Jerusalem; Pictures of Israel Bible Map and Diagram
Dung Gate in the Old City Jerusalem

The broad wall diagram on a map

The location of the Broad Wall detailed on a map of
Jerusalem. This is part of the remains of the wall
that Hezekiah built in 701 BC to protect the western expansion of the city of Jerusalem when Israelites fled from the northern kingdom when it fell to the Assyrians.
(See photo of Broad Wall here and details here.)

The Dung Gate in the south wall of the Old City Jerusalem.
(Details here.)

The pointed arch at the top of the Dung Gate above the lintel indicates that it was originally designed as a postern gate, which is a secondary gate in a fortification, often concealed so the city’s occupants could secretly escape the city or deploy troops against besiegers. This gate was widened in 1953 by the occupying Jordanians so that vehicles could get into the Old City, since the Jaffa Gate and Zion Gate were under siege and closed.
