1 As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so a is not seemly for a fool.
2 As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.
3 A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool’s back.
4 Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.
5 a a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his b.
6 He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off the feet, and drinketh a.
7 The legs of the lame are not equal: so is a parable in the mouth of fools.
8 As he that bindeth a stone in a sling, so is he that giveth honour to a fool.
9 As a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools.
10 The great God that formed all things both a the fool, and rewardeth transgressors.
11 As a dog returneth to his a, so a fool returneth to his folly.
12 Seest thou a man wise in his own a? there is more hope of a b than of him.
13 The a man saith, There is a lion in the way; a lion is in the streets.
14 As the door turneth upon his hinges, so doth the slothful upon his bed.
15 The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom; it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth.
16 The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason.
17 He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife belonging not to him, is like one that a a dog by the ears.
18 As a mad man who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death,
19 So is the man that a his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport?
20 Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no a, the b ceaseth.
21 As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a a man to kindle strife.
22 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
23 Burning lips and a wicked heart are like a a covered with silver dross.
24 He that a dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up b within him;
25 When he a fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart.
26 Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be a before the whole congregation.
27 Whoso diggeth a a shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.
28 A a tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a b mouth worketh ruin.
