And the king answered the people roughly, and forsook the advice given him by the elders. He followed the advice of the young men and said,
‘My father made your yoke heavy, and I will add to your yoke. My father also chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions!'”
1 Kings 12:13-14
By the way that Bible passage up top loses its wickedness when you realize that ‘scorpions’ refers to a type of whip similar to a cat o’ nine tails. It’s got knots throughout the throngs to better flay the skin than just a regular whip. Mmmhmm! FASCINATING.
