Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you yourself will be just like him. Prov, 26:4
Do you see a person wise in their own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for them.Prov, 26:12
Like one who grabs a stray dog by the ears is someone who rushes into a quarrel not their own.
Like a maniac shooting flaming arrows of death is one who deceives their neighbor and says, "I was only joking!"
Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down.
As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire, so is a quarrelsome person for kindling strife.
The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to the inmost parts. Prov, 26:17-22
Enemies disguise themselves with their lips, but in their hearts they harbor deceit. Though their speech is charming, do not believe them, for seven abominations fill their hearts. Prov, 26:24-25
A lying tongue hates those it hurts, and a flattering mouth works ruin. (Prov. 26:28)
