An evil man seeks only rebellion; therefore a stern and pitiless messenger shall be sent against him. (Proverbs 17:11).
Certainty of retribution (17:11)
Those bent on rebellion will surely meet with severe retribution in the form of a "merciless official." This latter expression may refer to a pitiless messenger that the king would send; but it may also refer to storms, pestilence, or any misfortune that was God's messenger of retribution.
