Proverbs 26
New Living Translation
26Honor is no more associated with fools than snow with summer or rain with harvest.H7950H7019H4306H7105H3519H5000H3684 2Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse will not land on its intended victim.H6833H5110H1866H5774H7045H2600H935 3Guide a horse with a whip, a donkey with a bridle, and a fool with a rod to his back!H7752H5483H4964H2543H7626H3684H1460 4Don’t answer the foolish arguments of fools, or you will become as foolish as they are.H6030H3684H200H7737 5Be sure to answer the foolish arguments of fools, or they will become wise in their own estimation.H6030H3684H200H2450H5869 6Trusting a fool to convey a message is like cutting off one’s feet or drinking poison!H7971H1697H3027H3684H7096H7272H8354H2555 7A proverb in the mouth of a fool is as useless as a paralyzed leg.H7785H6455H1809H4912H6310H3684 8Honoring a fool is as foolish as tying a stone to a slingshot.H6872H6887H68H4773H5414H3519H3684 9A proverb in the mouth of a fool is like a thorny branch brandished by a drunk.H2336H5927H3027H7910H4912H6310H3684 10An employer who hires a fool or a bystander is like an archer who shoots at random.H7227H2342H7936H3684H7936H5674 11As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his foolishness.H3611H7725H6892H3684H8138H200 12There is more hope for fools than for people who think they are wise.H7200H376H2450H5869H8615H3684 13The lazy person claims, “There’s a lion on the road! Yes, I’m sure there’s a lion out there!”H6102H559H7826H1870H738H7339 14As a door swings back and forth on its hinges, so the lazy person turns over in bed.H1817H5437H6735H6102H4296 15Lazy people take food in their hand but don’t even lift it to their mouth.H6102H2934H3027H6747H3811H7725H6310 16Lazy people consider themselves smarter than seven wise counselors.H6102H2450H5869H7651H7725H2940 17Interfering in someone else’s argument is as foolish as yanking a dog’s ears.H5674H5674H7379H2388H3611H241 18Just as damaging as a madman shooting a deadly weaponH3856H3384H2131H2671H4194 19is someone who lies to a friend and then says, “I was only joking.”H376H7411H7453H559H7832 20Fire goes out without wood, and quarrels disappear when gossip stops.H657H6086H784H3518H5372H4066H8367 21A quarrelsome person starts fights as easily as hot embers light charcoal or fire lights wood.H6352H1513H6086H784H4079H4066H376H2787H7379 22Rumors are dainty morsels that sink deep into one’s heart.H1697H5372H3859H3381H2315H990 23Smooth words may hide a wicked heart, just as a pretty glaze covers a clay pot.H1814H8193H7451H3820H2789H6823H3701H5509 24People may cover their hatred with pleasant words, but they’re deceiving you.H8130H5234H8193H7896H4820H7130 25They pretend to be kind, but don’t believe them. Their hearts are full of many evils.H6963H2603H539H7651H8441H3820 26While their hatred may be concealed by trickery, their wrongdoing will be exposed in public.H8135H3680H4860H7451H1540H6951 27If you set a trap for others, you will get caught in it yourself. If you roll a boulder down on others, it will crush you instead.H3738H7845H5307H1556H68H7725 28A lying tongue hates its victims, and flattering words cause ruin.H8267H3956H8130H1790H2509H6310H6213H4072
