Proverbs 26:1-8 NRS

1 Like snow in summer or rain in harvest, so honor 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 honor to a fool.
