Proverbs 22:10

10 Kick out the troublemakers and things will quiet down; you need a break from bickering and griping!

Proverbs 22:10 Meaning and Commentary

Proverbs 22:10

Cast out the scorner
That makes a mock at sin, a jest at religion, and scoffs at all good men, and everything serious and spiritual; cast such an one out of all company and conversation; out of the family, as mocking Ishmael was cast out of Abraham's family; and out of the church, and all religious societies. Jarchi interprets it of the evil imagination or corruption of nature; but this will continue with a man as long as he lives, and, though it may be weakened and subdued, it is not cast out; and contention shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease;
which are caused by the scorner, who stirs up contention and strife in all company where he is, in families, and churches; and is continually casting reproach on good men and things; but, when he is cast out, everything of this nature ceases, and peace and love take place.
