Proverbs 14:16 (NKJV) — 16 A wise man fears and departs from evil, but a fool rages and is self-confident.
Taking chances. Those who are wise have the good sense to know when to stop, when to draw back. They take no chance with evil; they turn from it. Fools, in their self-confidence, bluster and boast. They will probably pay the price for their confident raging in personal pain and injury.
