Proverbs 26 NIV – Like snow in summer or rain in harvest, – Bible Gateway

4 Do not answer a fool according to his folly,    or you yourself will be just like him. 5 Answer a fool according to his folly,    or he will be wise in his own eyes.

via Proverbs 26 NIV – Like snow in summer or rain in harvest, – Bible Gateway.

 

These two verses are what first clued me in to the idea that Proverbs is not a book of literal instructions.
