CommentaryIsaiah 36:21 Parallel Commentaries
Anyone who rebukes a mocker will get an insult in return. Anyone who corrects the wicked will get hurt.
So don't bother correcting mockers; they will only hate you. But correct the wise, and they will love you.
Don't answer the foolish arguments of fools, or you will become as foolish as they are.
