Parallel Strong's
Holman Christian Standard Bible
A person who is passing by and meddles in a quarrel that’s not his is like one who grabs a dog by the ears.

New American Standard Bible
[Like] one who takes a dog by the ears Is he who passes by [and] meddles with strife not belonging to him.

King James Bible
He that passeth by, [and] meddleth with strife [belonging] not to him, [is like] one that taketh a dog by the ears.
Parallel Verses
International Standard Version
Picking up a dog by the ears— that's what someone is like who meddles in another's fight.

American Standard Version
He that passeth by, and vexeth himself with strife belonging not to him, Is like one that taketh a dog by the ears.

Young's Literal Translation
Laying hold on the ears of a dog, Is a passer-by making himself wrath for strife not his own.
