NET © Notes

sn The simile is graphic and debasing (cf. 2 Peter 2:22).

sn The point is clear: Fools repeat their disgusting mistakes, or to put it another way, whenever we repeat our disgusting mistakes we are fools. The proverb is affirming that no matter how many times a fool is warned, he never learns.
