21st Century Paraphrase: Matthew 7:6 (casting pearls before swine)

I shall undertake to do an occasional series of my own paraphrases of well-known verses from scripture, stylised and updated to reflect our modern culture.

‘Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces. (Matt.7:6 NIV)

‘Do not post online to trolls what is sacred; do not get embroiled in arguments on social media with imbeciles. If you do, they may trash your holy words with their politico-religious mantras, and turn again and again and troll you to death. (Matt.7:6 21CP)

Grace be with you.
