  • Proverbs 26:1-11 (ESV)

    1 Like snow in summer or rain in harvest,

    so honor is not fitting for a fool.

    2 Like a sparrow in its flitting, like a swallow in its flying,

    a curse that is causeless does not alight.

    3 A whip for the horse, a bridle for the donkey,

    and a rod for the back of fools.

    4 Answer not a fool according to his folly,

    lest you be like him yourself.

    5 Answer a fool according to his folly,

    lest he be wise in his own eyes.

    6 Whoever sends a message by the hand of a fool

    cuts off his own feet and drinks violence.

    7 Like a lame man’s legs, which hang useless,

    is a proverb in the mouth of fools.

    8 Like one who binds the stone in the sling

    is one who gives honor to a fool.

    9 Like a thorn that goes up into the hand of a drunkard

    is a proverb in the mouth of fools.

    10 Like an archer who wounds everyone

    is one who hires a passing fool or drunkard.

    11 Like a dog that returns to his vomit

    is a fool who repeats his folly.
