New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 Dead flies make the perfumer's ointment give off a foul odor; so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor. 1 As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
2 The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of a fool to the left. 2 The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.
3 Even when fools walk on the road, they lack sense, and show to everyone that they are fools. 3 Even as he walks along the road, the fool lacks sense and shows everyone how stupid he is.
