Discussion for Proverbs 14:10

  • Valerie Norberry VanOrden on Proverbs 14:10
    This, to me, means, that when God finally grinds thoroughly and completely in his gristmill, the wicked who have wronged you, you feel peace, joy, and relief. We don 't always see the retribution of God on the wicked who have wronged us, but there is a proverb that says "Don 't laugh when your enemy falls, or God will stay His hand from him ". I believe scripture interprets scrip. and this completes the thought.
