Proverbs - Chapter 25
  • 1. Here are more of Solomon's proverbs, copied by scribes at the court of King Hezekiah of Judah.
  • 2. We honor God for what he conceals; we honor kings for what they explain.
  • 3. You never know what a king is thinking; his thoughts are beyond us, like the heights of the sky or the depths of the ocean.
  • 4. Take the impurities out of silver and the artist can produce a thing of beauty.
  • 5. Keep evil advisers away from the king and his government will be known for its justice.
  • 6. When you stand before the king, don't try to impress him and pretend to be important.
  • 7. It is better to be asked to take a higher position than to be told to give your place to someone more important.
  • 8. Don't be too quick to go to court about something you have seen. If another witness later proves you wrong, what will you do then?
  • 9. If you and your neighbor have a difference of opinion, settle it between yourselves and do not reveal any secrets.
  • 10. Otherwise everyone will learn that you can't keep a secret, and you will never live down the shame.
  • 11. An idea well-expressed is like a design of gold, set in silver.
  • 12. A warning given by an experienced person to someone willing to listen is more valuable than gold rings or jewelry made of the finest gold.
  • 13. A reliable messenger is refreshing to the one who sends him, like cold water in the heat of harvest time.
  • 14. People who promise things that they never give are like clouds and wind that bring no rain.
  • 15. Patient persuasion can break down the strongest resistance and can even convince rulers.
  • 16. Never eat more honey than you need; too much may make you vomit.
  • 17. Don't visit your neighbors too often; they may get tired of you and come to hate you.
  • 18. A false accusation is as deadly as a sword, a club, or a sharp arrow.
  • 19. Depending on an unreliable person in a crisis is like trying to chew with a loose tooth or walk with a crippled foot.
  • 20. Singing to a person who is depressed is like taking off a person's clothes on a cold day or like rubbing salt in a wound.
  • 21. If your enemies are hungry, feed them; if they are thirsty, give them a drink.
  • 22. You will make them burn with shame, and the LORD will reward you.
  • 23. Gossip brings anger just as surely as the north wind brings rain.
  • 24. Better to live on the roof than share the house with a nagging wife.
  • 25. Finally hearing good news from a distant land is like a drink of cold water when you are dry and thirsty.
  • 26. A good person who gives in to someone who is evil reminds you of a polluted spring or a poisoned well.
  • 27. Too much honey is bad for you, and so is trying to win too much praise.
  • 28. If you cannot control your anger, you are as helpless as a city without walls, open to attack.
