Trivia Tuesday – Name That ‘Stone-Thrower!!’

Hey Neighbor!

Are you familiar with the saying, ‘People who live in glass houses should not throw stones?’

Well, the actual meaning of this proverb is, “One should not cause harm to other people, if he is himself vulnerable”

Well today, we are looking for a certain Bible character who was literally found guilty of cursing and throwing stones at a king, during a time when the king was found most vulnerable.

And because this ‘stone-thrower’ did not immediately suffer the consequences of his treachery upon that king, he continued to live on quite comfortably in his ‘glass house’ as if he, himself, was not also vulnerable to be harmed.

Now of course our stone-thrower did not literally live in a glass house, because at this time, the Israelites lived in tents.

But the irony here, is such that our ‘stone-thrower’ did finally meet his fate; but not while he sat or slept behind the security of his glass walls and doors!!

In fact, this stone thrower was actually put to death because he departed from the confines of his home, leaving him in direct violation of the succeeding king’s commands.

You see, this treasonous ‘stone-thrower’ had finally been judged and convicted of his crimes, and was placed under house arrest; but just three years later, he too found himself in a situation of vulnerability.

There was trouble in his home, and two of his rebellious servants had run away; and thus our cursing, stone-thrower hurriedly departed from his house, in order to retrieve his servants from Gath, and get them back onto his estate.

When the king was made aware of the stone-throwers violation of the ‘stay-at-home’ order, he was immediately put to death.

Those very same stones that he had thrown, intending to harm a very vulnerable king, had finally ricocheted, and had made contact upon this ‘stone-throwers’ very own vulnerable head!!

Can You Name This Stone-Thrower??

  1. I’m a day late but I still get to play. I’m going with Shimei. He threw rocks and cursed King David because he blamed him for King Saul’s death. He was then put on house arrest under King Solomon’s reign. He left his area and was killed when King Solomon found out about it.

  2. Ah Warren got it! I knew there was a man who threw stones at King David when he tried to escape when his son tried to take over the throne. I would have gone combing to find his name and the specific references and texts. Welcome back Tammy Wammy. ❤️💖💗🥰😍🙏🏾

  3. The Stone-thrower; Shimei

    “When King David came to Bahurim, there came out a man of the family of the house of Saul, whose name was Shimei, the son of Gera, and as he came he cursed continually. And he threw stones at David and at all the servants of King David, and all the people and all the mighty men were on his right hand and on his left. And Shimei said as he cursed, “Get out, get out, you man of blood, you worthless man!”
    2 Samuel‬ ‭16‬:‭5‬-‭7‬ ‭ESV‬‬

    “But it happened at the end of three years that two of Shimei’s servants ran away to Achish, son of Maacah, king of Gath. And when it was told Shimei, “Behold, your servants are in Gath,” Shimei arose and saddled a donkey and went to Gath to Achish to seek his servants. Shimei went and brought his servants from Gath.”
    ‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭2‬:‭39‬-‭40‬ ‭ESV‬‬

    “And when Solomon was told that Shimei had gone from Jerusalem to Gath and returned, Then the king commanded Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and he went out and struck him down, and he died.”
    1 Kings‬ ‭2‬:‭41‬, ‭46‬ ‭ESV‬‬
