Proverbs 10:10

[ <1 minutes to read ]

He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall.
– Proverbs 10:10

[R]ather than a contrast, this proverb gives us a comparison going from bad to worse. Winking is a gesture often used as deception or to give reassurance (Proverbs 6:13). It is usually the means of one taking advantage in some way. The word of such a one is not trustworthy causes injury. As in Proverbs 10:8, the prating fool prefers his own foolishness and will not receive instruction. The result is being taken as in a snare.
