From 2 kings 2:23,24
2:23 And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.
2:24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.
Malevolent deity, or self-loathing author?
Note: For anyone reading the replies to this post and wondering how Hitler came into the discussion, here’s the answer. I saw a meme that, unfortunately, used Hitler to make a point about 2 kings 2:23,24. Moving too quickly, I posted the meme image. Thus Hitler entered the room. I swiftly rectified my mistake, replacing the meme with verse. As it turns out, Hitler proved useful as a catalyst for the discussion.
