Proverbs 26:8-10 Living Bible (TLB)

Honoring a rebel will backfire like a stone tied to a slingshot!

A rebel will misapply an illustration so that its point will no more be felt than a thorn in the hand of a drunkard.

10 The master may get better work from an untrained apprentice than from a skilled rebel!

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.
