Whoso is answering a matter before he heareth, Folly it is to him and shame.
Proverbs 18:13 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He that answereth a matter - This is a common case; before a man can tell out his story, another will begin his. Before a man has made his response, the other wishes to confute piecemeal, though he has had his own speech already. This is foolishness to them. They are ill-bred. There are many also that give judgment before they hear the whole of the cause, and express an opinion before they hear the state of the case. How absurd, stupid, and foolish!
