Proverbs 25:19-28 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
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 coals1 on his head, and the LORD will reward you.2 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.3 25 Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land.4 26 Like a muddied spring or a polluted well is a righteous man who gives way to the wicked. 27 It is not good to eat too much honey,5 nor is it honorable to seek one's own honor.6 28 Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control.
