New International Version

Ecclesiastes 10:1

WYC 1 Flies that die (in it), lose the sweetness of [the] ointment. A little folly at some time is more precious than wisdom and glory. (Flies that die in an ointment can destroy its sweetness. And so a little foolishness can sometimes destroy wisdom and glory.) NIV 1 As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
