Proverbs 26:3-12

3 Vnto the horse belongeth a whyppe, to the Asse a brydle, and a rodde to the fooles backe. 4 Geue not the foole an answere after his foolishnesse, lest thou become like vnto him: 5 but make ye foole an answere to his foolishnesse, lest he be wyse in his owne coceate. 6 He is lame of his fete, yee droncken is he in vanite, that comitteth eny thinge to a foole. 7 Like as it is an vnsemely thige to haue legges & yet to halte, eue so is a parable in ye fooles mouth. 8 He yt setteth a foole in hye dignite, yt is eue as yf a man dyd cast a precious stone vpo ye galous. 9 A parable in a fooles mouth, is like a thorne yt pricketh a droncken man in ye hande. 10 A man of experience discerneth all thinges well, but whoso hyreth a foole, hyreth soch one as wyl take no hede. 11 Like as the dogg turneth agayne to his vomite, euen so a foole begynneth his foolishnesse agayne afresh. 12 Yf thou seyest a man yt is wyse in his owne conceate, there is more hope in a foole then in hi.

Of these thinges wolde I that thou shuldest speake earnestly, that they which are become beleuers in God, might be diligent to excell in good workes: for these thinges are good and profitable vnto me. 9 As for folish questions, and genealogies, and braulynges and stryuynges aboute ye lawe, auoyde the, for they are vnprofitable and vayne. 10 A ma that is geuen vnto heresye, after ye first and seconde monicion, auoyde, 11 and knowe, that he that is soch, is peruerted, & synneth euen damned by his awne iudgment.
