Proverbs 26:8-10 The Passion Translation (TPT)
8 Give honor to a fool and watch it backfire—
like a stone tied to a slingshot.
9 The statements of a fool will hurt others
like a thorn bush brandished by a drunk.
10 Like a reckless archer shooting arrows at random
is the impatient employer
who hires just any fool who comes along—
someone’s going to get hurt!
