“As a thorne goeth vp into the hand of a drunkard; so is a parable in the mouth of fooles.”
King James Version (KJV)
6. He that sendeth a message by the hand of a foole, cutteth off the feete, and drinketh dammage. 7. The legges of the lame are not equall: so is a parable in the mouth of fooles. 8. As hee that bindeth a stone in a sling; so is hee that giueth honour to a foole. 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.
