Proverbs Chapter 26

, -- : - . 1 As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool.
, -- , () . 2 As the wandering sparrow, as the flying swallow, so the curse that is causeless shall come home.
, ; , . 3 A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the back of fools.
- , : -- -. 4 Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.
, : - . 5 Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes.
, -- -. 6 He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off his own feet, and drinketh damage.
, ; , . 7 The legs hang limp from the lame; so is a parable in the mouth of fools.
, -- - . 8 As a small stone in a heap of stones, so is he that giveth honour to a fool.
, -; , . 9 As a thorn that cometh into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools.
-; , . 10 A master performeth all things; but he that stoppeth a fool is as one that stoppeth a flood.
, --- , . 11 As a dog that returneth to his vomit, so is a fool that repeateth his folly.
--, : . 12 Seest thou a man wise in his own eyes? there is more hope of a fool than of him.
, ; , . 13 The sluggard saith: 'There is a lion in the way; yea, a lion is in the streets.'
, -; , -. 14 The door is turning upon its hinges, and the sluggard is still upon his bed.
, ; , -. 15 The sluggard burieth his hand in the dish; it wearieth him to bring it back to his mouth.
-- , . 16 The sluggard is wiser in his own eyes than seven men that give wise answer.
--- , - -. 17 He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife not his own, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears.
, -- . 18 As a madman who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death;
-, -; , - . 19 So is the man that deceiveth his neighbour, and saith: 'Am not I in sport?'
, -; , . 20 Where no wood is, the fire goeth out; and where there is no whisperer, contention ceaseth.
, ; (), -. 21 As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a contentious man to kindle strife. {P}
, ; , -. 22 The words of a whisperer are as dainty morsels, and they go down into the innermost parts of the body.
, --- -. 23 Burning lips and a wicked heart are like an earthen vessel overlaid with silver dross.
, ; , . 24 He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, but he layeth up deceit within him.
- , --: . 25 When he speaketh fair, believe him not; for there are seven abominations in his heart.
, ; . 26 Though his hatred be concealed with deceit, his wickedness shall be revealed before the congregation.
-, ; , . 27 Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein; and he that rolleth a stone, it shall return upon him.
-, ; , . 28 A lying tongue hateth those that are crushed by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.
