English Standard Version
8 Like one who binds the stone in the sling
is (A)one who gives honor to a fool.
9 Like (B)a thorn that goes up into the hand of a drunkard
is a proverb in the mouth of fools.
10 Like an archer who wounds everyone
is one who hires a passing fool or drunkard.[a]
- Proverbs 26:10 Or hires a fool or passersby
