The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice. (Proverbs 12:15)

Wise men store up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool invites ruin. (Proverbs 10:14)

A fool finds pleasure in evil conduct, but a man of understanding delights in wisdom. (Proverbs 10:23)

A wise man fears the LORD and shuns evil, but a fool is hotheaded and reckless. (Proverbs 14:16)

Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue. (Proverbs 17:28)

A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control (Proverbs 29:11).

The wise inherit honor, but fools he holds up to shame. (Proverbs 3:35)

Solomon had much to say about wise and foolish men. These are only a small percentage of the Bible verses in which wise and foolish men are contrasted. Of course, the most foolish of men are described by God in the Psalms:

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” (Psalm 53:1a)
