As he that taketh away a garment in coldweather, and as vinegar upon nitre, so is he that singethsongs to an heavyheart.21
If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat ; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink :
For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee.
The northwind driveth awayrain: so doth an angrycountenance a backbitingtongue.24
It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawlingwoman and in a widehouse.25
As coldwaters to a thirstysoul, so is goodnews from a farcountry.26
A righteous man falling downbefore the wicked is as a troubledfountain, and a corruptspring.27
It is not good to eatmuchhoney: so for men to search their own glory is not glory.28He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down , and without walls.
