Proverbs 16:27 A scoundrel plots evil, and his speech is like a scorching fire.

Posted: October 16, 2020 in Proverbs 16, Seeking Wisdom, Wisdom

This “scoundrel” literally plots evil for his neighbor and his speech is incendiary.

This, if done by a woman, would be called malicious gossip. The evil this man is telling burns and destroys those he is talking about. He is a false witness, stirring up strife with just an evil tongue.
