Holman Christian Standard Bible

Excellent speech is not fitting for a fool, Much less are lying lips to a prince.

King James Bible
Excellent speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.
Parallel Verses
International Standard Version
Appropriate speech is inconsistent with the fool; how much more are deceitful statements with a prince!

American Standard Version
Excellent speech becometh not a fool; Much less do lying lips a prince.

Young's Literal Translation
Not comely for a fool is a lip of excellency, Much less for a noble a lip of falsehood.
