4. A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.
5. Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.
Have you ever wondered why corrupt and lying politicians are continually elected to office? Have you ever thought why are lying ministers or pastors gathering such large crowds?
Verse four sheds a light on a certain part of human nature most refuse to see. The evil do wickedly and have that little desire deep within their soul, a result of Adam’s sin, something that can catch fire and burn away at their soul & conscience. As an unsaved, unregenerate human we may not realize it, but we are attracted to that which we claim to despise, that being a lying tongue. When we jest and laugh at those naughty or obscene behaviors we are expressing, in a sense, our fallen nature.
Verse five is no less revealing, I think it can speak for itself.
