Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:1 - These also are proverbs of Solomon which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:2 - It is the glory of God to conceal a matter,
But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:3 - As the heavens for height and the earth for depth,
So the heart of kings is unsearchable.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:4 - Take away the dross from silver,
And it will go to the silversmith for jewelry.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:5 - Take away the wicked from before the king,
And his throne will be established in righteousness.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:6 - Do not exalt yourself in the presence of the king,
And do not stand in the place of the great;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:7 - For it is better that he say to you,
“Come up here,”
Than that you should be put lower in the presence of the prince,
Whom your eyes have seen.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:8 - Do not go hastily to court;
For what will you do in the end,
When your neighbor has put you to shame?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:9 - Debate your case with your neighbor,
And do not disclose the secret to another;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:10 - Lest he who hears it expose your shame,
And your reputation be ruined.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:11 - A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold
In settings of silver.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:12 - Like an earring of gold and an ornament of fine gold
Is a wise rebuker to an obedient ear.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:13 - Like the cold of snow in time of harvest
Is a faithful messenger to those who send him,
For he refreshes the soul of his masters.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:14 - Whoever falsely boasts of giving
Is like clouds and wind without rain.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:15 - By long forbearance a ruler is persuaded,
And a gentle tongue breaks a bone.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:16 - Have you found honey?
Eat only as much as you need,
Lest you be filled with it and vomit.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:17 - Seldom set foot in your neighbor’s house,
Lest he become weary of you and hate you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:18 - A man who bears false witness against his neighbor
Is like a club, a sword, and a sharp arrow.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:19 - Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble
Is like a bad tooth and a foot out of joint.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:20 - Like one who takes away a garment in cold weather,
And like vinegar on soda,
Is one who sings songs to a heavy heart.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:21 - If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat;
And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:22 - For so you will heap coals of fire on his head,
And the LORD will reward you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:23 - The north wind brings forth rain,
And a backbiting tongue an angry countenance.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:24 - It is better to dwell in a corner of a housetop,
Than in a house shared with a contentious woman.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:25 - As cold water to a weary soul,
So is good news from a far country.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:26 - A righteous man who falters before the wicked
Is like a murky spring and a polluted well.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:27 - It is not good to eat much honey;
So to seek one’s own glory is not glory.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 25:28 - Whoever has no rule over his own spirit
Is like a city broken down, without walls.
