Proverbs 11:12 says, “He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.” (KJV)
The first part of this proverb clearly tells us that if you hate your neighbor then you lack wisdom. But what does that really mean? To get a better understanding we need to look at this scripture in its original language – Hebrew. Below is the transliteration. Normally, Hebrew is read from right to left, but the scripture below is actually reading left to right. I thought this would be easier to read for those who don’t read Hebrew.
