|The Webster Bible (WBT)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth an offensive odor: [so doth] a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom [and] honor.
1 As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
