Proverbs 26:8-10 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
8 Giving honor to a fool
is like binding a stone in a sling.
9 A proverb in the mouth of a fool
is like a stick with thorns,
brandished by the hand of a drunkard.
10 The one who hires a fool or who hires those passing by
is like an archer who wounds everyone.
