Proverbs 26:6-9 (King James Version)
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 mouth of fools.
26:6 damage: or, violence
26:8 bindeth...: or, putteth a precious stone in an heap of stones
