Proverbs 25


25:1 These [are] also proverbs of Solomon, which the men of
 Hezekiah king of Judah copied out.
25:2 [It is] the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor
 of kings [is] to search out a matter.
25:3 The heaven for hight, and the earth for depth, and the
 heart of kings [is] unsearchable.
25:4 Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come
 forth a vessel for the finer.
25:5 Take away the wicked [from] before the king, and his throne
 shall be established in righteousness.
25:6 Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and
 stand not in the place of great [men]:
25:7 For better [it is] that it be said to thee, Come up hither;
 than that thou shouldst be put lower in the presence of the
 prince whom thy eyes have seen.
25:8 Go not forth hastily to strive, lest [thou know not] what
 to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbor hath put thee to
 shame.
25:9 Debate thy cause with thy neighbor [himself]; and reveal
 not a secret to another:
25:10 Lest he that heareth [it] put thee to shame, and thy
 infamy turn not away.
25:11 A word fitly spoken [is like] apples of gold in pictures
 of silver.
25:12 [As] an ear-ring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold,
 [so is] a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.
25:13 As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, [so is] a
 faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refresheth the
 soul of his masters.
25:14 Whoever boasteth himself of a false gift [is like] clouds
 and wind without rain.
25:15 By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft
 tongue breaketh the bone.
25:16 Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for
 thee, lest thou be filled with it, and vomit it.
25:17 Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbor's house; lest he be
 weary of thee, and [so] hate thee.
25:18 A man that beareth false witness against his neighbor [is]
 a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow.
25:19 Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble [is
 like] a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.
25:20 [As] he that taketh away a garment in cold weather, [and
 as] vinegar upon nitre; so [is] he that singeth songs to a
 heavy heart.
25:21 If thy enemy shall hunger, give him bread to eat; and if
 he shall thirst, give him water to drink:
25:22 For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the
 LORD will reward thee.
25:23 The north wind driveth away rain: so [doth] an angry
 countenance a backbiting tongue.
25:24 [It is] better to dwell in a corner of the house-top, than
 with a brawling woman and in a wide house.
25:25 [As] cold waters to a thirsty soul, so [is] good news from
 a far country.
25:26 A righteous man falling down before the wicked [is as] a
 turbid fountain, and a corrupt spring.
25:27 [It is] not good to eat much honey: so [for men] to search
 their own glory [is not] glory.
25:28 He that [hath] no rule over his own spirit [is like] a
 city [that is] broken down, [and] without walls.
