Proverbs 18:16; Proverbs 19:19; Proverbs 25:6; Proverbs 27:14 (New American Standard)
A man's gift makes room for him And brings him before great men.
A man of great anger will bear the penalty, For if you rescue him, you will only have to do it again.
Do not claim honor in the presence of the king, And do not stand in the place of great men;
He who blesses his friend with a loud voice early in the morning, It will be reckoned a curse to him.
