Proverbs 26

26:4 Answer not a fool a according to his folly, lest thou also be like him.

(a) Consent not to him in his doings.
26:5 Answer a fool b according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.
(b) Reprove him as the matter requires.
26:6 He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off c the feet, d [and] drinketh damage.
(c) That is, of the messenger whom he sends.
(d) That is, receives damage by it.
26:9 [As] a thorn goeth e up into the hand of a drunkard, so [is] a parable in the mouth of fools.
(e) By which he hurts both himself and others.
26:10 f The great [God] that formed all [things] both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors.
(f) Meaning God.
26:12 Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? [there is] g more hope of a fool than of him.
(g) For the fool would rather be counselled than he: also the fool sins out of ignorance, and the other out of malice.
26:13 The slothful [man] saith, h [There is] a lion in the way; a lion [is] in the streets.

(h) Read (Proverbs 22:13).
26:19 So [is] the man [that] deceiveth i his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport?
(i) Who disguises himself to be that which he is not.
26:23 Burning lips and k a wicked heart [are like] a potsherd covered with silver dross.
(k) They will soon break out and utter themselves.
26:25 When he speaketh kindly, believe him not: for [there are] l seven abominations in his heart.
(l) Meaning many: he uses a certain number for the uncertain.
26:26 [Whose] hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be revealed before the [whole] m congregation.
(m) In the assembly of the godly.
