    King James Bible - Proverbs 26:9

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

    World English Bible

    Like a thornbush that goes into the
    hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools.

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 26:9

    As if a thorn should grow in the
    hand of a drunkard: so is a parable in the mouth of fools.

    Webster's Bible Translation

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

    Original Hebrew

    חוח
    2336 עלה 5927 ביד 3027 שׁכור 7910 ומשׁל 4912 בפי 6310 כסילים׃ 3684

    Pr 23:35

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 26:9

    Espinas hincadas en mano del embriagado, tal es el proverbio en la boca de los locos.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. [As] a
    thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard , etc.] And he perceives it not; or being in his hand he makes an ill use of it, and hurts himself and others with it; so [is] a parable in the mouth of fools , a proverbial sentence respecting religious matters; or a passage of holy Scripture which either he understands not, and has no spiritual perception of, any more than the drunkard has of the thorn in his hand; or which being used as a pun, or by way of jest, as it is the manner of some to pun upon or jest with the Scripture, hurts himself and others, wounds his own conscience, and ruins the souls of others; for it is dangerous meddling with edge tools, and hard to kick against the pricks; so to do is like a drunken manís handling thorns, which he does without judgment, and to his own prejudice and others.

    Gussetius understands this of a fish hook coming up into the hand of a drunkard empty, without taking any thing by it, and so alike useless is what is said by a fool.


    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.
