10:1 Dead flies cause the oil of the perfumer to send forth an evil odor; `so' doth a little folly outweigh wisdom and honor.
10:3 Yea also, when the fool walketh by the way, his understanding faileth him, and he saith to every one `that' he is a fool.
10:4 If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for gentleness allayeth great offences.
10:5 There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as it were an error which proceedeth from the ruler:
10:8 He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh through a wall, a serpent shall bite him.
10:9 Whoso heweth out stones shall be hurt therewith; `and' he that cleaveth wood is endangered thereby.
10:10 If the iron be blunt, and one do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct.
10:13 The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness; and the end of his talk is mischievous madness.
10:14 A fool also multiplieth words: `yet' man knoweth not what shall be; and that which shall be after him, who can tell him?
10:17 Happy art thou, O land, when thy king is the son of nobles, and thy princes eat in due season, for strength, and not for drunkenness!
10:20 Revile not the king, no, not in thy thought; and revile not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the heavens shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.
