Proverbs 26:8-10 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

As he that bindeth a stone in a sling, so is he that giveth honor to a fool.

As a thorn pierceth into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools.

10 The great God who formed all things both rewardeth the fool and rewardeth transgressors.

Proverbs 26:8-10 New International Version (NIV)

Like tying a stone in a sling
    is the giving of honor to a fool.
Like a thornbush in a drunkard’s hand
    is a proverb in the mouth of a fool.
10 Like an archer who wounds at random
    is one who hires a fool or any passer-by.
