Mariah Carey's husband says Eminem will be punished by God for insulting his wife.

Nick Cannon is furious with the rapper for recording the track 'The Warning', in which he crudely talks about his brief relationship with Mariah in 2001, and has posted several bible verses on his Twitter page attacking Eminem.

Nick wrote: "Quote of the day, 'Never argue with fools because from a distance people can't tell who is who.' "

He later added: "Never take your own revenge, but rather give place unto the wrath. For it is written vengeance is mine, I will repay... PREACH! 'I will bless those that bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse.' Genesis 12:3."

Nick's response continued: "Be patient in the moment of anger and escape a hundred days of sorrow!

"People who project negativity ultimately are crying out for their own broken souls. Trying to save a hater is like trying to teach astrophysics to a wino!"

In 'The Warning' - recorded as a response to Mariah dressing up as Eminem in the video for her song 'Obsessed' - the hip-hop star talks graphically about his relationship with Mariah and threatens to leak intimate voice messages and pictures of them together.

Lyrics to Eminem's 'The Warning' include: "B***h, shut the f**k up before I put all them phone calls out you made to my house.

"Better shut your lying mouth if you don't want Nick finding out. You probably think since it's been so long if I had something on you I woulda did it by now.

"On the contrary, Mary Poppins, I'm mixing our studio session down and sending it to mastering to make it loud. Enough dirt on you to murder you. Mariah, it ever occur to you that I still have pictures?

"Call my bluff and I'll release every f***ing thing I got including the voicemails right before you flipped your top."

He goes on to describe intimate details about their sexual exploits, mentions her by name several times and brands her a "w***e" and "alcoholic".

Mariah has previously insisted she is not mocking Eminem in her 'Obsessed' promo, saying: "Everybody started having their own speculations about who the stalker in the video was. When I look at that stalker and me with the beard, I look like my brother and my cousin Chris. So basically, you know, all the speculation about who I'm playing in the video, it's not accurate."
