People's Dictionary of the Bible
Fool. This term, in Scripture, implies moral pravity. The fool is not merely an unreasonable, he is a sinful person. 2 Samuel 13:13; Psalms 14:1; Proverbs 19:1; Proverbs 19:29; Proverbs 20:3; Proverbs 26:4-5; Matthew 23:17; Romans 1:21-22. Hence the censure of one who unjustifiably cast so great a reproach upon a brother. Matthew 5:22.
