Against whom are you mocking?
Against whom are you making a wide mouth
and sticking out your tongue?
Are you not children of disobedience,
the seed of deceit, Bible

“sticking out your tongue.” The Hebrew is more literally, “making your tongue long.” The custom of jeering someone by sticking out the tongue at them has been around for thousands of years.


Commentary for: Isaiah 57:4
