Proverbs 25:14-24 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
14 The man who boasts about a gift that does not exist is like clouds and wind without rain. 15 A ruler can be persuaded through patience, and a gentle tongue can break a bone.a 16 If you find honey, eat only what you need; otherwise, you'll get sick from it and vomit.b 17 Seldom set foot in your neighbor's house; otherwise, he'll get sick of you and hate you. 18 A man giving false testimony against his neighbor is like a club, a sword, or a sharp arrow. 19 Trusting an unreliable person in a time of trouble is like a rotten tooth or a faltering foot. 20 Singing songs to a troubled heart is like taking off clothing on a cold day, or like [pouring] vinegar on soda.c 21 If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat, and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; 22 for you will heap coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.d 23 The north wind produces rain, and a backbiting tongue, angry looks. 24 Better to live on the corner of a roof than in a house shared with a nagging wife.e
