    "Boys" is used ephemistically in this verse, it should be read more as "punks".

        Exegesis.

        The depicted text says "little children" and appears to be the KJV which is protected by the Holy Spirit

        >and appears to be the KJV which is
        one of the worst Bible translations of all time.

            In other words, because someone else (who wasn’t the author) said so. And people still think hermeneutics is a science.

            Most of those 'scholars' were christians desperate to read Jesus into the text and prove that the god of the OT is compatable with neoplatonism. They had absolutely no knowledge of the culture of the people of the time, and virtually no regard for the opinions of the decendents of the the people whose culture it was, as they believed that said culture had been superceded by Jesus' coming. Any ‘exegesis’ by a church father, theologian, or member of an organised religious body or movement is inherently suspect (this goes for other religions to - the Talmud is a very poor source to understand the basic text of the OT, because its writers were very disconnected from the sociopolitical milieu in which it was written). In other words, any one trying to suggest a reading beyond the basic meaning of a text it likely making stuff up.

      C’mon what are you even trying to do, chimp? There are multiple passages when God orders the israelites to murder every single children and women of the enemy tribes. God has no problem wity the killing if children or with slavery, especially if the victima are non-Jews. Stop watching pathetic Christard applogist Youtubers and actually read the book.

    Why did God make him go bald in the first place?

      Killing the little children was His plan all along to glorify Him, as demonstrated by Calvin.

    It's a solar myth: Elisha the "bald man" is the moon with Elijah being the sun (the "bearded man": the sun's rays), the two bears are the constellations of ursus major and ursus minor, the 42 stars are constellations.
    Obviously something like this couldn't have literally happened: if there had been 42 children, they'd have run away, and two bears would never have been able to catch them all.

      The youths harassing him were probably endangering him. Those bears killed 42 of them. Not only is that a huge number, but it leaves open the implication that there were more. If all of them start stoning you, you're probably in for a slow death.

    >If you are a committed Christian apologist

    The kids were more like young men, they insulted a prophet of God publicly when it was important that the people of Israel take him very seriously (they may have threatened him), bears came out of the woods and only "hurt" the youths but didn't necessarily kill him

    >If you aren't prone to sympathizing with biblical apologetics

    Yeah it's a weird passage but remember you are a weak moron powerless goy and you're lucky to get any mercy at all. God doesn't owe you an explanation for anything and he will kill anyone that gets in his way. The bears mauling the kids was not only justified it was the best possible thing God could have done. You should literally be thanking him for doing it.

    Well personally I don't fricking know. Too much of the bible seems too silly for me to deal with

    Maybe they should've minded their fricking business if they didn't want to get mauled by bears?
