Hezekiah’s Collection

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:1 -

These too are proverbs of Solomon,

which the men of King Hezekiah of Judah, copied.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:2 -

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter

and the glory of kings to investigate a matter.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:3 -

As the heavens are high and the earth is deep,

so the hearts of kings cannot be investigated.

Remove impurities from silver,

and material will be produced[fn] for a silversmith.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:5 -

Remove the wicked from the king’s presence,

and his throne will be established in righteousness.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:6 -

Don’t boast about yourself before the king,

and don’t stand in the place of the great;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:7 -

for it is better for him to say to you, “Come up here! ”

than to demote you in plain view of a noble.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:8 -

Don’t take a matter to court hastily.

Otherwise, what will you do afterward

if your opponent[fn] humiliates you?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:9 -

Make your case with your opponent

without revealing another’s secret;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:10 -

otherwise, the one who hears will disgrace you,

and you’ll never live it down.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:11 -

A word spoken at the right time

is like gold apples in silver settings.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:12 -

A wise correction to a receptive ear

is like a gold ring or an ornament of gold.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:13 -

To those who send him, a trustworthy envoy

is like the coolness of snow on a harvest day;

he refreshes the life of his masters.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:14 -

The one who boasts about a gift that does not exist

is like clouds and wind without rain.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:15 -

A ruler can be persuaded through patience,

and a gentle tongue can break a bone.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:16 -

If you find honey, eat only what you need;

otherwise, you’ll get sick from it and vomit.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:17 -

Seldom set foot in your neighbor’s house;

otherwise, he’ll get sick of you and hate you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:18 -

A person giving false testimony against his neighbor

is like a club, a sword, or a sharp arrow.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:19 -

Trusting an unreliable person in a difficult time

is like a rotten tooth or a faltering foot.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:20 -

Singing songs to a troubled heart

is like taking off clothing on a cold day

or like pouring vinegar on soda.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:21 -

If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat,

and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:22 -

for you will heap burning coals on his head,

and the LORD will reward you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:23 -

The north wind produces rain,

and a backbiting tongue, angry looks.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:24 -

Better to live on the corner of a roof

than to share a house with a nagging wife.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:25 -

Good news from a distant land

is like cold water to a parched throat.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:26 -

A righteous person who yields to the wicked

is like a muddied spring or a polluted well.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:27 -

It is not good to eat too much honey

or to seek glory after glory.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:28 -

A person who does not control his temper

is like a city whose wall is broken down.

CSB Footnotes
Lit will come out ; Ex 32:24
Or and a vessel will be produced by a silversmith
Lit you before a noble whom your eyes see
Or neighbor, also in v. 9
Lit and your evil report will not turn back
Lit natron, or sodium carbonate
Or a weary person
Lit seek their glory, glory
