Sirach 22:7
He that teacheth a fool, is like one that glueth a potsherd together.
Trying to teach a fool is like gluing a broken pot back together, like waking someone out of a deep sleep.
He who teaches a fool is like one who glues potsherds together, or who rouses a sleeper from deep slumber.
He who teaches a fool is like one who glues potsherds together, or who rouses a sleeper from deep slumber.
He that teacheth a fool, (is) as he that glueth together a tilestone. He that telleth a word to him that heareth not, is as he that raiseth a man sleeping from a grievous sleep. [Who teacheth a fool, as that glueth together a sherd (or a shard). He that telleth a word to the not hearing, as that reareth a sleeping man from an heavy sleep.]
