“As an arrowe that sticketh in a mans thigh, so is a word within a fooles belly.”
King James Version (KJV)
9. For he heard and obserued thee, and when time commeth he will hate thee. 10. If thou hast heard a word, let it die with thee, and be bold it will not burst thee. 11. A foole trauaileth with a word, as a woman in labour of a child. 12. As an arrowe that sticketh in a mans thigh, so is a word within a fooles belly. 13. Admonish a friend, it may be he hath not done it, and if he haue [done it] that he doe it no more. 14. Admonish thy friend, it may be he hath not said it, and if he haue, that he speake it not againe. 15. Admonish a friend: for many times it is a slander, & beleeue not euery tale.
