Jessa Duggar forgave brother Josh Duggar for sexually molesting her when he was a teenager. She said others should forgive him, too. She also spoke out against those who called him a child molester during a television interview with Megyn Kelly, alongside her sister Jill Duggar Dillard.

Now Josh Duggar has made news for yet another scandal. In addition to having two Ashley Madison accounts, he has admitted to having an addiction to pornography as well as to having cheated on his wife Anna Duggar.

Is Jessa Duggar still standing by her brother? Or is she sick of his atrocious behavior instead?

Jessa shared a Bible passage in a recent Instagram post. It's hard to interpret the passage through her eyes, however. Is it indicative of her forgiveness--once again--of Josh Duggar? Or is it pointing fingers at him instead?

"If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth," one verse reads.

This sounds like Jessa Duggar is rather disgusted with Josh Duggar for having claimed to be a Christian, yet having these Ashley Madison accounts, through which he cheated on wife Anna Duggar.

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness," another verse reads.

This one makes it seem like Jessa Duggar is satisfied with yet another confession from Josh Duggar.

It's important to note, however, that Josh didn't seek forgiveness for these Ashley Madison accounts or for cheating on his wife until he was caught.

Does that count as a confession in Jessa Duggar's eyes?

Do you think these passages from the Bible indicate that Jessa Duggar is forgiving her brother yet again or is angry with him for his actions?

The entire mix of Josh Duggar scandals can't have been easy on Jessa Duggar, who--along with hubby Ben Seewald--is expecting her first child.
