Foolish jealousy (Prov 27:3-27:4)

“A stone is heavy.

Sand is weighty.

But a fool’s provocation

Is heavier than both.

Wrath is cruel.

Anger is overwhelming.

But who is able to stand before jealousy?”

Stones and sands are heavy and weighty. However, a fool’s provocation is heavier than both. Wrath and anger are cruel and overwhelming, but jealousy is worse than both. Thus we have a comparison between various bad actions like provocation, wrath, anger, and jealousy.
