    King James Bible - Proverbs 26:7

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

    World English Bible

    Like the legs of the lame that hang
    loose: so is a parable in the mouth of fools.

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 26:7

    As a lame man hath fair legs in vain: so a parable is unseemly in the mouth of fools.

    Webster's Bible Translation

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

    Original Hebrew

    דליו
    1809 שׁקים 7785 מפסח 6455 ומשׁל 4912 בפי 6310 כסילים׃ 3684

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 26:7

    Así como camina el cojo; es el proverbio en la boca del loco.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. The legs of the
    lame are not equal , etc.] Or as “the lifting up the legs by one that is lame” f710 , to dance to a pipe or violin, is very unseemly, and does but the more expose his infirmity, and can give no pleasure to others, but causes derision and contempt; so [is] a parable in the mouth of fools ; an apophthegm, or sententious expression of his own, which he delivers out as a wise saying, but is lame and halts; it is not consistent with itself, but like the legs of a lame man, one higher than the other: or one of the proverbs of this book, or rather any passage of Scripture, in the mouth of a wicked man; or any religious discourse of his is very unsuitable, since his life and conversation do not agree with it; it is as disagreeable to hear such a man talk of religious affairs as it is to see a lame man dance; or whose legs imitate buckets at a well, where one goes up and another down, as Gussetius interprets the word.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-9 -
    Fools are not fit to be trusted, nor to have any honour. Wise sayings as a foolish man delivers and applies them, lose their usefulness.
