1 One dead fly can spoil the scent-maker's oil: a grain of stupidity outweighs wisdom and glory.
Gal 2:12-14  Matt 5:13-16  Neh 13:26  2Chr 19:2  Exod 30:25  Exod 30:34-35  Neh 6:13 

2 The sage's heart leads him aright, the fool's leads him astray.

3 A fool walks down the road, he has no wit -- and everyone remarks, 'How silly he is!'
Prov 18:2  Prov 13:16  1Pet 4:4  Eccl 5:3  Prov 18:6 

4 If the anger of the ruler rises against you, do not leave your post; composure mitigates grave offences.
Prov 25:15  Eccl 8:3  1Sam 25:24-44 

5 One evil I observe under the sun: the sort of misjudgement to which rulers are prone-
Eccl 3:16  Eccl 4:1  Eccl 4:7  Eccl 5:13  Eccl 6:1  Eccl 9:3 

6 folly promoted to the top and the rich taking the lowest place.
Prov 28:12  Esth 3:1  Prov 29:2  1Kgs 12:13-14  Judg 9:14-20  Ps 12:8  Prov 28:28 

7 I see slaves riding on horses and princes on foot like slaves.
Prov 19:10  Prov 30:22  Esth 6:8 

8 He who digs a pit falls into it, he who undermines a wall gets bitten by a snake,
Amos 5:19  Prov 26:27  2Sam 17:23  2Sam 18:15  Amos 9:3  Esth 7:10  Judg 9:5 

9 he who quarries stones gets hurt by them, he who chops wood takes a risk from it.

10 If, for want of sharpening, the blade is blunt, you have to work twice as hard; but it is the outcome that makes wisdom rewarding.
Eccl 10:15  Eccl 9:15-17  Eph 5:15-17  Exod 18:19-23  Jas 1:5  1Cor 14:20  1Kgs 3:9 

11 If, for want of charming, the snake bites, the snake-charmer gets nothing out of it.
Jer 8:17  Ps 58:4-5  Jas 3:6  Ps 52:2  Ps 64:3  Prov 18:21 

12 The sayings of a sage give pleasure, what a fool says procures his own ruin:
Luke 4:22  Prov 15:2  Prov 22:11  Col 4:6  Eph 4:29  Prov 10:13-14  Prov 10:20-21 

13 his words have their origin in stupidity and their ending in treacherous folly.
1Sam 25:10-11  1Sam 20:26-33  1Sam 22:7-8  1Sam 22:16-18  2Kgs 6:27  2Kgs 6:31  2Sam 19:41-1 

14 A fool talks a great deal, but none of us in fact can tell the future; what will happen after us, who can tell?
Prov 15:2  Eccl 3:22  Eccl 5:3  Eccl 6:12  Eccl 8:7  Jas 4:13-14  Job 34:37 

15 A fool finds hard work very tiring, he cannot even find his own way into town.
Eccl 10:3  Eccl 10:10  Hab 2:6  Isa 35:8-10  Isa 44:12-17  Isa 47:12-13  Isa 55:2 

16 Woe to you, country with a lad for king, and where princes start feasting in the morning!
Isa 3:12  Isa 3:4-5  2Chr 13:7  Isa 5:11-12  2Chr 33:1-20  2Chr 36:2  2Chr 36:5 

17 Happy the land whose king is nobly born, where princes eat at a respectable hour to keep themselves strong and not merely to revel!
Prov 31:4-5  Deut 14:26  Eccl 10:6-7  Isa 5:11  Jer 30:21  Prov 28:2-3 

18 Thanks to idleness, the roof-tree gives way, thanks to carelessness, the house lets in the rain.
Prov 14:1  Prov 20:4  Prov 24:30-34  2Pet 1:5-10  Heb 6:11  Prov 21:25  Prov 23:21 

19 We give parties to enjoy ourselves, wine makes us cheerful and money has an answer for everything.
Ps 104:15  Luke 12:19  Isa 24:11  1Chr 21:24  1Chr 29:2-9  1Pet 4:3  1Sam 25:36 

20 Do not abuse the king, even in thought, do not abuse a rich man, even in your bedroom, for a bird of the air might carry the news, a winged messenger might repeat what you have said.
Exod 22:28  Acts 23:5  Luke 12:2-3  Eccl 7:21-22  Isa 8:21  Luke 19:40  Luke 10:40
