Flee from the foolish, even Jesus fled from them.
Much blood has been shed
by companionship with fools!
Air absorbs water little by little;
even so, the fool drains you of spirit.
He steals your heart and leave you cold,
like one who puts a stone beneath you.
The flight of Jesus wasn’t caused by fear,
for he is safe from the mischief of fools;
his purpose was to teach by example.
