Proverbs 26:4-14 (The Message)

View In My Bible
4 Don't respond to the stupidity of a fool; you'll only look foolish yourself. 5 Answer a fool in simple terms so he doesn't get a swelled head. 6 You're only asking for trouble when you send a message by a fool. 7 A proverb quoted by fools is limp as a wet noodle. 8 Putting a fool in a place of honor is like setting a mud brick on a marble column. 9 To ask a moron to quote a proverb is like putting a scalpel in the hands of a drunk. 10 Hire a fool or a drunk and you shoot yourself in the foot. 11 As a dog eats its own vomit, so fools recycle silliness. 12 See that man who thinks he's so smart? You can expect far more from a fool than from him. 13 Loafers say, "It's dangerous out there! Tigers are prowling the streets!" and then pull the covers back over their heads. 14 Just as a door turns on its hinges, so a lazybones turns back over in bed.
