Proverbs 26 Selected Verses

1 Like snow in summer or rain in harvest,
    so honor is not fitting for a fool.

(I)Answer a fool according to his folly,
    lest he be (J)wise in his own eyes.

17 Whoever meddles in a quarrel not his own
    is like one who takes a passing dog by the ears.
18 Like a madman who throws (V)firebrands, arrows, and death
19 is the man who deceives his neighbor
    and says, “I am only joking!”

20 For lack of wood the fire goes out,
    and where there is no (W)whisperer, (X)quarreling ceases.

24 Whoever hates disguises himself with his lips
    and harbors deceit in his heart;
25 when he speaks graciously, believe him not,
    for there are (AE)seven abominations in his heart;
26 though his hatred be covered with deception,
    his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.
