The book of Proverbs says: (24:17-18)
Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles; Or the LORD will see it and be displeased, And turn His anger away from him.
If I want my enemy to continue to stumble/ fall, should I forbid myself to rejoice when he falls?
However, if I have mercy on my enemy and want him to stop falling, can I make God turn His anger away from him by letting my heart be glad at my enemy’s fall?
Next time my enemy falls, can I openly gloat and say :“I’m just letting my heart be glad so God will turn away His anger from you, read Proverbs 24:17-18!” ?
