In the mouth of a fool is a rod of pride, And the lips of the wise preserve them.
Proverbs 14:3 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride - The reproofs of such a person are ill-judged and ill-timed, and generally are conveyed in such language as renders them not only ineffectual, but displeasing, and even irritating.
