(Proverbs 12:18 KJV) There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.
In this spot the NASB does a better job on the Hebrew. The KJV leaves out the concept of “rashly” (981). While the term can refer to making solemn statements it has the idea of doing it without thought, even flippantly. I have a vision of some of the spiritual discussions I have had with people where I deliver the coup de gras only to find that they don’t think it was so profound. It was, they just didn’t get it. I am not referring to the times I was totally wrong. The problem was not my facts but my attitude.
So? It doesn’t do any good to be right if no one will listen.
