'Reproach' in the Bible
David asked the men who were standing by him, "What will be done for the man who kills this Philistine and takes away the reproach from Israel? Indeed, who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?"
I have become an object of reproach to all my enemies, especially to my neighbors. I have become an object of fear to my friends, and whoever sees me outside runs away from me.
Truly you know my reproach, shame, and disgrace. All my enemies are known to you.
We have become a reproach to our neighbors, a mockery and a derision to those around us.
Pay back our neighbors seven times the reproach with which they reproached you, LORD.
All who pass by on their way plunder him; he has become a reproach to his neighbors.
Remember, Lord, the reproach of your servant! I carry inside me all the insults of many people,
"Don't be afraid, because you won't be ashamed; don't fear shame, for you won't be humiliated because you will forget the disgrace of your youth, and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more.
Indeed, as often as I speak, I cry out, and shout, "Violence and destruction!" For this message from the LORD has caused me constant reproach and derision.
I'll bring on you everlasting reproach and everlasting humiliation that won't ever be forgotten."
So now, bear your own shame as you mediate for your sisters. The sins that you've committed are more detestable than theirs. That makes them more righteous than you. Indeed, be ashamed and bear your reproach, because you've made your sisters to be more righteous than you."
