Proverbs 26

1  As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool.

2  As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.

3  A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool's back.

4  Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.

5  Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.

6  He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off the feet, and drinketh damage.

7  The legs of the lame are not equal: so is a parable in the mouth of fools.

8  As he that bindeth a stone in a sling, so is he that giveth honour to a fool.

9  As a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools.

10  The great God that formed all things both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors.
