super sad i blazed through Proverbs so quickly

it’s so dense with curious couplets and mysterious lines

heres one of the weirdest ones i came across tonight

“A slave pampered from childhood will come to a bad end.” Proverbs 29:21

what exactly is the Bible trying to tell us with that one? that we shouldn’t be sweet to servants? crazy!

it reminds me more of something Iceberg Slim would say, not King Solomon.

it also reminded me of the new revision of Mark Twain’s Huck Finn where they thought it would be a good idea to replace the word Nigger with Slave.

slave, please.
