Bullies come in all ages, race, and creed. Beware of them and hold your ground. Sometimes one good verbal punch will put them in their place, since few bullies are intelligent. Most are insecure Neanderthals.
I've begun reading Proverbs and am finding more and more that wisdom has to do with good old common sense. There are many verses in the Bible regarding those who are loud and abusive. They are thought to be fools. In Proverbs 14:29 "A patient man has great understanding, but a quick-tempered man displays folly. 14:16 "A wise man fears the LORD and shuns evil, but a fool is hotheaded and reckless." 15:18 "A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension, but a patient man calms a quarrel."
I have found this book to be especially resourceful because so many of the verses hold truths that are not religious based, which is not what I want to do here, but life based. Proverbs also reminds us that fools and bullies were around even three thousand years ago.
