Ecclesiastes 10:1-3; Ecclesiastes 10:12-15
As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.
Even as he walks along the road, the fool lacks sense and shows everyone how stupid he is.
Words from a wise man's mouth are gracious, but a fool is consumed by his own lips.
At the beginning his words are folly; at the end they are wicked madness--
and the fool multiplies words. No one knows what is coming-- who can tell him what will happen after him?
A fool's work wearies him; he does not know the way to town.
