Proverbs 26:1-8 NLT

1 Honor doesn't go with fools any more than snow with summer or rain with harvest.
2 Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an unfair curse will not land on its intended victim.
3 Guide a horse with a whip, a donkey with a bridle, and a fool with a rod to his back!
4 When arguing with fools, don't answer their foolish arguments, or you will become as foolish as they are.
5 When arguing with fools, be sure to answer their foolish arguments, or they will become wise in their own estimation.
6 Trusting a fool to convey a message is as foolish as cutting off one's feet or drinking poison!
7 In the mouth of a fool, a proverb becomes as limp as a paralyzed leg.
8 Honoring a fool is as foolish as tying a stone to a slingshot.
