26 A good person who ·gives in to [staggers before] evil
is like a ·muddy [foul] spring or a ·dirty [ruined] well.
27 It is not good to eat too much honey,
nor does it bring you honor to ·brag about yourself [seek honor].
28 Those who ·do not control themselves [are unrestrained in spirit]
are like a city whose walls are broken down.
