    Similitudes And Instructions

    Proverbs Chapter 26 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward

    Proverbs 26
    King James Version

    As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest,
    so honour 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 Answer a fool according to his folly,
    lest he be wise in his own conceit.​
    6 He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool
    cutteth off the feet, and drinketh damage.​
    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 mouths of fools.​
    10 The great God that formed all things
    both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors.​
    11 As a dog returneth to his vomit,
    so a fool returneth to his folly.​
    12 Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit?
    there is more hope of a fool than of him.​

    13 The slothful 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 taketh a dog by the ears.​

    18 As a mad man who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death,
    19 So is the man that deceiveth his neighbour,
    and saith, Am not I in sport?​

    20 Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out:
    so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.​
    21 As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire;
    so is a contentious 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 potsherd covered with silver dross.​
    24 He that hateth dissembleth with his lips,
    and layeth up deceit within him;​
    25 When he speaketh fair, believe him not:
    for there are seven abominations in his heart.​
    26 Whose hatred is covered by deceit,
    his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole congregation.​

    27 Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein:
    and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.​

    28 A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it;
    and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.

    About Author

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
