Rabbis debate: "Jubilation When The Wicked Perish"
An interesting debate is being conducted in some circles in Israel as to precisely how happy one should be at Arafat's demise.

One Biblical verse that has often been quoted of late is, "When the wicked perish, there is jubilation" (Proverb 11,10). A statement by the Tekumah party - a faction of the National Union - notes that the Talmud cites this verse in response to witnesses who fear that their testimony might help put someone to death. The judges tell them, "You will not be liable for this blood; it is rather a merit for you, to purify the world from evil and to add light and joy, as is written, 'When the wicked perish, there is jubilation.'"

Tekumah also quotes Rabbi A. I. Kook, Chief Rabbi of pre-State Israel, as writing that the verse implies that even "evil itself, in its depth, longs for its own demise and rejoices in it." The Tekumah statement concludes, "If we recall the dark passion ...

I am surprised that the American media doesn't point out the 28 American deaths that Arafat was responsible for. He hadn't much chance for repentance. His wife is only a nominal Christian. He was sweetly sent to hell by being read the verses of the Koran. I do not know whoever had his eternal fate so determined.

We can always hope that any evil person will repent, but I see no evidence that Arafat accepted Christianity. :-( I assume even the Orthodox Jews do not have the same idea about Hell as we do, but they may very well have just as vicious a leader as Arafat to replace him, and younger and more vigorous in carrying on Arafat's evil work. They don't have much to rejoice about.

Given that these Rabbis oppose the Gospel, they should be careful what they wish for.

It is very likely (on first glance) that Prov. 11:10 is descriptive, not prescriptive.

Jolee, you are right when you say the thought of Hell is an awful thought.

Yet, cannot there be rejoicing in the knowledge that Arafat can no longer terrorize? His Nobel peace prize, joke that it was, can be tossed in the trash heap. While the conventional media adulates the so-called grandfatherly leader of the Palestinian people, can we not thank God for one less barbarian Jew-hater?

Charles Bridges, in his commentary on Proverbs 11:10, says toward the latter end of this verse's exposition:

"But when a hindrance to the good cause is removed (Prov. 28:28; Eccles. 9:18); when the justice of God against sin (2 Sam.18:14-28), & his faithful preservation of his church (Exod. 15:21; Judg. 5:31), are displayed, ought not every feeling to be absorbed in a supreme interest in his glory? Ought they not to shout? (Ps. 52:6,7; 58:10; Rev. 18:20) The "Alleluia" of heaven is an exulting testimony to the righteous judgements of the Lord our God, hastening forward his glorious kingdom. (Rev. 19:1,2)"

So there is a sense of joy when evil, wicked men are dead, due to the removal of their personal, wicked life & its influence on all men. Another passage to ponder is Proverbs 29:1,2. But, we must never forget that God clearly states in Ezekiel 18: 23, 31,32 that He has no pleasure in the death of the wicked. This is displayed by His command that the wicked repent of his ways & turn to the Lord & live in His ways.

How can anyone be happy when someone might be in Hell ? No matter how "evil" a person is , Hell is a horrible place of eternal torment . Even though anyone who rejects Christ deserves it , it's still an aweful thought . Especially when you consider just how many people are their right now and will never get out . All born again Christians need to share the blessed truth with as many as possible , and maybe sow a seed of truth in them that they may come to know the Lord Jesus as their savior and avoid a terrible eternal fate .
