Daily Wisdom 196: Proverbs 10:10

Proverbs 10:10 (NKJV) — 10 He who winks with the eye causes trouble, But a prating fool will fall.

Be careful about the winkers. Winking with the eye here indicates craftiness and concealment. Again the warning is given: a chattering fool shall fall.

Proverbs 10:10 (NIV) — 10 Whoever winks maliciously causes grief, and a chattering fool comes to ruin.

Proverbs 6:12–15 (NIV) — 12 A troublemaker and a villain, who goes about with a corrupt mouth, 13 who winks maliciously with his eye, signals with his feet and motions with his fingers, 14 who plots evil with deceit in his heart— he always stirs up conflict. 15 Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant; he will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy.
