Book of Proverbs Chapter 26

PROVERBS 26:1 As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool.

PROVERBS 26:2 As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.

PROVERBS 26:3 A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool's back.

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

PROVERBS 26:5 Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.

PROVERBS 26:6 He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off the feet, and drinketh damage.

PROVERBS 26:7 The legs of the lame are not equal: so is a parable in the mouth of fools.

PROVERBS 26:8 As he that bindeth a stone in a sling, so is he that giveth honour to a fool.

PROVERBS 26:9 As a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouths of fools.

PROVERBS 26:10 The great God that formed all things both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors.

PROVERBS 26:11 As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.

PROVERBS 26:12 Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.

PROVERBS 26:13 The slothful man saith, There is a lion in the way; a lion is in the streets.

PROVERBS 26:14 As the door turneth upon his hinges, so doth the slothful upon his bed.

PROVERBS 26:15 The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom; it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth.

PROVERBS 26:16 The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason.

PROVERBS 26:17 He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife belonging not to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears.

PROVERBS 26:18 As a mad man who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death,

PROVERBS 26:19 So is the man that deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport?

PROVERBS 26:20 Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.

PROVERBS 26:21 As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a contentious man to kindle strife.

PROVERBS 26:22 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.

PROVERBS 26:23 Burning lips and a wicked heart are like a potsherd covered with silver dross.

PROVERBS 26:24 He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him;

PROVERBS 26:25 When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart.

PROVERBS 26:26 Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole congregation.

PROVERBS 26:27 Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.

PROVERBS 26:28 A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
