Proverbs 25

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31]

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 honour of kings [is] to search out a matter.

25:3 The heaven for height, 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 unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.

25:8 Go not forth hastily to strive, lest [thou know not] what to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbour hath put thee to shame.

25:9 Debate thy cause with thy neighbour [himself]; and discover not a secret to another:

25:10 Lest he that heareth [it] put thee to shame, and thine infamy turn not away.

25:11 A word fitly spoken [is like] apples of gold in pictures of silver.

25:12 [As] an earring 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 Whoso 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 therewith, and vomit it.

25:17 Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour's house; lest he be weary of thee, and [so] hate thee.

25:18 A man that beareth false witness against his neighbour [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 an heavy heart.

25:21 If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:

25:22 For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall 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 the corner of the housetop, 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 troubled 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.
