A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again. Proverbs, Chapter 19:19.
This reminds me of how the police will go to the house of a man beating his wife and just give him a warning. That really doesn’t do much. He’s going to keep beating her, if not that time, some other time when the stress gets to be too much for him.
It also, reminds me of how the court system lets rapists, killers and child molesters out into the public after they have served some time, only to find out that the person raped, killed or molested someone else. A person who could have been saved, if the system had not let that rapist, killer or molester back out.
