As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest,
So honor is not seemly for a fool.

As the sparrow in her wandering, as the swallow in her flying,
So the curse that is causeless alighteth not.

A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass,
And a rod for the back of fools.

Lest thou also be like unto him.

Cutteth off his own feet, and drinketh in damage.

There is more hope of a fool than of him.

The sluggard saith, There is a lion in the way;
A lion is in the streets.

As the door turneth upon its hinges,
So doth the sluggard upon his bed.

For lack of wood the fire goeth out;
And where there is no whisperer, contention ceaseth.

As coals are to hot embers, and wood to fire,
So is a contentious man to inflame strife.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 26:22 -
The words of a whisperer are as dainty morsels,
And they go down into the innermost parts.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 26:23 -
Fervent lips and a wicked heart
Are like an earthen vessel overlaid with silver dross.

He that hateth dissembleth with his lips;
But he layeth up deceit within him:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 26:25 -
When he speaketh fair, believe him not;
For there are seven abominations in his heart:

Though his hatred cover itself with guile,
His wickedness shall be openly showed before the assembly.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 26:27 -
Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein;
And he that rolleth a stone, it shall return upon him.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 26:28 -
A lying tongue hateth those whom it hath wounded;
And a flattering mouth worketh ruin.
