Child Abandonment?

Genesis 17:14 And the uncircumcised male child, who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, shall be cut off from his people; he has broken My covenant.”


Wouldn’t this be the parent’s issue for not having the child circumcised? Why is the child going to be abandoned and cut off from his family?

Youth mauled by bears for calling the prophet of God "baldhead"

2 Kings 2:23-24 Then [Elisha] went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up the road, some youths came from the city and mocked him, and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!” So he turned around and looked at them, and pronounced a curse on them in the name of the LORD. And two female bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths.


In case you thought that cursing others was wrong, please note that the prophet cursed the kids “in the name of the Lord” which resulted in the mauling by the bears. Interesting power to have and I would not be too keen on using it.
