Proverbs 10:8

I struggle with scripture memorization; however, turning it to English poetry helps me recall the passage and concept with better clarity.

“The wise of heart will receive commandments,

but a babbling fool will come to ruin.”

Proverbs 10:8, ESV
A babbling brook without a spring
Is he who speaks on all but nothing.

That’s all! Nothing too profound in my little couplet, but the image is helpful as I consider this Proverb.
