Proverbs 26:8-10 New English Translation (NET Bible)
8 Like tying a stone in a sling,
so is giving honor to a fool.
9 Like a thorn that goes into the hand of a drunkard,
so is a proverb in the mouth of a fool.
10 Like an archer who wounds at random,
so is the one who hires a fool or hires any passer-by.
