[b-hebrew] prov 9:7

in the view of listers, is it legitimate to translate "mum" (at the end of
the verse) as "disfigurement" and hence "beating"?

The way I understand the verse is like this-

"the one who corrects a scoffer gets reviled
        the one who reproves a wicked man gets a beating!"

any suggestions as to why this may be wrong (if indeed it is wrong).

thanks

Jim
