"Let all who are simple come in here!" she says to those who lack judgment. (Proverbs 9:16)

A simple man believes anything, but a prudent man gives thought to his steps. (Proverbs 14:15)

Flog a mocker, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke a discerning man, and he will gain knowledge. (Proverbs 19:25)

When a mocker is punished, the simple gain wisdom; when a wise man is instructed, he gets knowledge. (Proverbs 21:11)

A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it. (Proverbs 22:3)
