This expression or idiom is a biblical (bible) reference found in the book of Daniel in the 5th chapter at the 25th verse (Daniel 5:25). Without getting into a Bible discussion or debate, let’s just agree with the Bible account that this cryptic message miraculously was inscribed on the plaster wall of Babylon’s King Belshazzar (sounds like: Bell-Shazz-Zar)…
MENE, MENE, TEKEL and PARSIN
You see, the King was partying HARD when a hand miraculously wrote on the wall; i.e the idiom “the writing is on the wall.” Or, as your Bible says: “MENE, MENE, TEKEL and PARSIN.”
Belshazzar perplexed over the meaning of this inscription and no one could give the translation. That is when he ordered the Bible prophet Daniel to come to his party to translate its meaning. (No doubt, the king was well aware of Daniel’s translations of former king’s dreams years earlier).
The Bible account goes on and explains what the “writing on the wall means” in the bible book of Daniel 5: 26-28
Do we get mad and basically blow the top of our heads off, yelling and screaming like a banshee* to blow off steam? Or do we hold it inside and let it build up till one day we implode? Yes, I truly believe there are two types of angry people…Explosive and implosive!
It’s like in the 2003 Adam Sandler movie “Anger Management,” when Dr. Buddy Rydell (played by Jack Nicholson) says:
“Dave, there are two kinds of angry people in this world: explosive and implosive. Explosive, which is the most common, is the type of individual you see screaming at a grocery store cashier for not taking his coupon. Implosive, the least common, is the cashier at the store who remains quiet at his job day after day until he then finally loses it and just shoots everyone in the store. You’re the cashier.”
Both types of anger have devastating affects on our mental and physical health. Many atrocities have occurred while in the grips of an angry rage. Therefore, controlling our anger is not just about bringing us peace of mind; it can also have long-lasting health benefits.
