8 Like tying a stone in a sling is the giving of honor to a fool.

Read Proverbs 26:8 Using Other Translations

As he that bindeth a stone in a sling, so is he that giveth honour to a fool.
Like one who binds the stone in the sling is one who gives honor to a fool.
Honoring a fool is as foolish as tying a stone to a slingshot.
