Proverbs 26:8-10 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)

It is like binding a stone in a sling
    to give honour to a fool.
Like a thornbush brandished by the hand of a drunkard
    is a proverb in the mouth of a fool.
10 Like an archer who wounds everybody
    is one who hires a passing fool or drunkard.[a]
