Proverbs 26:8-10 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)
8 It is like binding a stone in a sling
to give honour to a fool.
9 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.
