Proverbs 18:2; Proverbs 18:6–7; Proverbs 18:13

A fool takes no pleasure in understanding,

but only zin expressing his opinion.

A fool’s lips walk into a fight,

and his mouth invites da beating.

eA fool’s mouth is his ruin,

and his lips are a snare to his soul.

13  If one gives an answer obefore he hears,

it is his folly and shame.
