Definition of a scoffer
I have been reading the "Chofetz Chaim: Lesson a Day". A portion of the daily readings deal with the severity of the sin of being a scoffer. I understand the modern definition of this term (to speak derisively; to mock; to jeer). Is this the same context as the biblical definition of scoffing?

On another note, I have been reading a daily selection of this book for around 6 months. I would challenge other Noahides to do the same. If for only purely practical purposes, if you cut down on the amount of time you spend gossiping, complaining, or making idle chatter, you will be amazed at how much extra time you have for more productive work in your life. Add that to the fact that G-d requires you to control your tongue, it's a win-win proposition!
