Proverbs 25:16-26 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
16 If you find honey, eat just enough-- too much of it, and you will vomit.1 17 Seldom set foot in your neighbor's house-- too much of you, and he will hate you. 18 Like a club or a sword or a sharp arrow is the man who gives false testimony against his neighbor.2 19 Like a bad tooth or a lame foot is reliance on the unfaithful in times of trouble. 20 Like one who takes away a garment on a cold day, or like vinegar poured on soda, is one who sings songs to a heavy heart. 21 If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. 22 In doing this, you will heap burning coals3 on his head, and the LORD will reward you.4 23 As a north wind brings rain, so a sly tongue brings angry looks. 24 Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.5 25 Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land.6 26 Like a muddied spring or a polluted well is a righteous man who gives way to the wicked.
