24 Characteristics Of Fools From The Wisest Man Solomon (Part Two)

Updated on July 1, 2014

This is Part Two in the series “24 Characteristics Of Fools From The Wisest Man Solomon.”

12. Fools love mischief like a game

Prov. 10:23 It is as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom.

Prov. 13:19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.

Prov. 15:14 The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.

Prov. 20:3 It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.

13. Fools will serve the wise

Prov. 11:29 He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.

14. Fools follow their own rules and think they are right

Prov. 12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

Prov. 28:26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.

No wonder God, through Solomon says:

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

(See the caution concerning that in Prov. 26:4).

15. Fools do not restrain their emotions

Prov. 12:16 A fool‘s wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame.

Prov. 14:33 Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding: but that which is in the midst of fools is made known.

Prov. 15:2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.

Prov. 17:28 Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.

Prov. 18:7 A fool‘s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.

Prov. 19:1 Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.

Prov. 29:11 A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.

Prov. 12:23 A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.

Prov. 13:16 Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge: but a fool layeth open his folly.

16. Fools are proud

Prov. 14:3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.

Prov. 30:32 If thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself, or if thou hast thought evil, lay thine hand upon thy mouth.

17. Stay away from fools

Prov. 13:20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

Prov. 14:7 Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.

18. Fools mock at sin

Prov. 14:9 Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour.

19. Fools are brave when they should not be

Prov. 14:16 A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.

20. A fool is quick to get angry

Prov. 14:17 He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated.

Prov. 19:3 The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD.

21. Fools are wasteful

Prov. 21:20 There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.

22. Honour and joy are not for fools

Prov. 19:10 Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.

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

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

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

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

23. Do not rely on a fool

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

24. People who are worse than fools

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

Prov. 29:20 Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? there is more hope of a fool than of him.

Let us be wise and follow Jesus rather than foolishness.

    You know, some of these are not as easy to understand, written in the poetic King James translation; so, I discovered something when I looked up Prov 26:7! The KJV states, "The legs of the lame are not equal: so [is] a parable in the mouth of fools." Well, I know Jesus spoke in parables ~ this is why I looked it up in other versions. The NAS (as well as many others) puts it this way, "Like the legs which are useless to the lame, So is a proverb in the mouth of fools." So, a 'parable' is a 'proverb'! And, just as the 'fools' did not understand the 'parables' Jesus spoke, they do not understand the 'proverbs'. I certainly have to study to get more understanding....and I thank God He is faithful to teach me! God bless you!
