Biblical Insults

In my daily readings, I'm in Job (they've chronologically placed Job in the same time frame as Genesis which is quite reasonable). So laying more weighty matters to one side, job is fertile ground for developing the skill of trading biblical insults. I used this one to great effect with a friend of mine today. I believe he was both blessed and encouraged by it. This is from Job 19:17-19
"Your breath disgusts your wife; everyone in your family turns away. Young children can't stand you, and when you come near, they make fun. Your best friends and loved ones have turned from you."

I'm sure there are others?

Referring to Elisha:

He went up from there to Bethel, and while he was going up on the way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him, saying, "Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!" - 2 Kings 2:23

Use at your peril though, those boys were promptly cursed by Elisha and then torn apart by bears...
