Proverbs Chapter 26   
  
   King James Version

  
     1 As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool. [jfb]   2 As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come. [jfb]   3 A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool's back. [jfb]   4 Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him. [gsn] [jfb]   5 Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit. [gsn] [jfb]   6 He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off the feet, [and] drinketh damage. [gsn] [jfb]   7 The legs of the lame are not equal: so [is] a parable in the mouth of fools. [jfb]   8 As he that bindeth a stone in a sling, so [is] he that giveth honour to a fool. [jfb]   9 [As] a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, so [is] a parable in the mouth of fools. [gsn] [jfb]   10 The great [God] that formed all [things] both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors. [gsn] [jfb]   11 As a dog returneth to his vomit, [so] a fool returneth to his folly. [jfb]   12 Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? [there is] more hope of a fool than of him. [gsn] [jfb]   13 The slothful [man] saith, [There is] a lion in the way; a lion [is] in the streets. [gsn] [jfb]   14 [As] the door turneth upon his hinges, so [doth] the slothful upon his bed. [jfb]   15 The slothful hideth his hand in [his] bosom; it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth. [jfb]   16 The sluggard [is] wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason. [jfb]   17 He that passeth by, [and] meddleth with strife [belonging] not to him, [is like] one that taketh a dog by the ears. [jfb]   18 As a mad [man] who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death, [jfb]   19 So [is] the man [that] deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport? [gsn]   20 Where no wood is, [there] the fire goeth out: so where [there is] no talebearer, the strife ceaseth. [jfb]   21 [As] coals [are] to burning coals, and wood to fire; so [is] a contentious man to kindle strife.   22 The words of a talebearer [are] as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. [jfb]   23 Burning lips and a wicked heart [are like] a potsherd covered with silver dross. [gsn] [jfb]   24 He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him; [jfb]   25 When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for [there are] seven abominations in his heart. [gsn] [jfb]   26 [Whose] hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the [whole] congregation. [gsn] [jfb]   27 Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.   28 A lying tongue hateth [those that are] afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin. [jfb]
