Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour: so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

10:1 a little folly. It is often true that a seemingly minor sin by an otherwise wise, honorable, and godly leader can lead to serious consequences, as in the case of Noah relaxing with wine (Genesis 9:20-27) and Moses smiting the rock (Numbers 20:7-12). We need to “be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil…walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (I Peter 5:8).
