Mishael on Fools's Mark Chapter 7 comment on 7/05/2020, 1:09am...

I think the word you wrote is misspelled.

The Bible has much to say about fools. The word fool today usually means "a senseless fellow, a bad character. The biblical definition has the added dimension of "someone who disregards God's Word."

The Bible lists many characteristics of such a person, often contrasting him with one who is wise. Ecclesiastes 10:2 says, "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the FOOL to the left."

A fool is one whose wayward heart turns continually toward foolishness. "Fools speak foolishness and make evil plans" (Isaiah 32:6).

Proverbs 26:11 says, "As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly."

Fools do not learn their lessons from the mistakes they make. They continue doing the same foolish things over and over again, to their own destruction (Proverbs 18:7).

The following is a partial list of some characteristics of a fool from the BOOK OF


A fool hates knowledge (1:22)

Takes no pleasure in understanding (18:2)

Enjoys wicked schemes (Proverbs 10:23)

Proclaims folly (Proverbs 12:23)

Spurns a parent's discipline (15:5)

Speaks perversity (19:1), is quick-tempered (12:16), gets himself in trouble with his proud speech (14:3) mocks at sin (14:9), is deceitful (14:8)

Despises his mother (15:20). A foolish child brings grief to his or her parents (17:25; 19:13)

A foolish man commits sexual immorality (6:32; 7:7-12)

A foolish woman tears down her own house (14:1).

(The worst of all). Psalm 14:1

The fool hath said in his heart, THERE IS NO GOD. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works; there is none that does good.
