He who fathers a fool does so to his own grief,
and the father of a godless person will have no joy. Bible

“no joy.” This is the figure of speech, tapeinosis, “understatement.” The statement is true, but it is understated, and as such is an understated way of saying the father of a godless fool will have loads of trouble.


Commentary for: Proverbs 17:21
