Proverbs 26:1-11

26Like snow in summer or rain in harvest,
   so honour is not fitting for a fool.
2 Like a sparrow in its flitting, like a swallow in its flying,
   an undeserved curse goes nowhere.
3 A whip for the horse, a bridle for the donkey,
   and a rod for the back of fools.
4 Do not answer fools according to their folly,
   or you will be a fool yourself.
5 Answer fools according to their folly,
   or they will be wise in their own eyes.
6 It is like cutting off one’s foot and drinking down violence,
   to send a message by a fool.
7 The legs of a disabled person hang limp;
   so does a proverb in the mouth of a fool.
8 It is like binding a stone in a sling
   to give honour to a fool.
9 Like a thornbush brandished by the hand of a drunkard
   is a proverb in the mouth of a fool.
10 Like an archer who wounds everybody
   is one who hires a passing fool or drunkard.*
11 Like a dog that returns to its vomit
   is a fool who reverts to his folly.
