“Seest thou a man wise in his owne conceit? there is more hope of a foole then of him.”
King James Version (KJV)
9. As a thorne goeth vp into the hand of a drunkard; so is a parable in the mouth of fooles. 10. The great God that formed all things, both rewardeth the foole, and rewardeth transgressours. 11. As a dogge returneth to his vomite: so a foole returneth to his folly. 12. Seest thou a man wise in his owne conceit? there is more hope of a foole then of him. 13. The slothfull man sayth, There is a lion in the way, a lion is in the streets. 14. As the doore turneth vpon his hinges: so doeth the slothfull vpon his bedde. 15. The slothfull hideth his hand in his bosome, it grieueth him to bring it againe to his mouth.
