|King James Version (KJV)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour : so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour.
1 As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
